About the Author
K. A. Jordan is a refugee from the Rust Belt of Ohio, who escaped to the Blue Grass of Kentucky in 1992. She writes and blogs from 'Jordan's Croft' a small farm where she lives with her husband, a retired Army Staff Sergeant and three horses. She holds a degree in Applied Science, rides American Quarter horses, gardens and can often be found on the back of her husband's Suzuki M109 motorcycle. She says of her writing: "I write the stories that I want to read, stories written for the head as well as the heart, with complex characters, twisty plots and contemporary settings. There are no 'ripped bodices' in my fiction but you'll find strong women, charming criminals, wounded heroes, mad artists and an occasional haunted motorcycle." 'Swallow the Moon' is the first of a series of modern Gothic novels set in Ashtabula, Ohio.

Kept me intrigued.
June is a down-to-earth accountant. She also happens to be a Wiccan who is tired of waiting for her soulmate to appear. She decides to cast a spell on the full autumn moon to hurry things along. Eric has recently returned from a stint in Afghanistan, to find divorce papers waiting for him. He has an unfulfilling job as a lab rat and not much else. His thoughts go to a happier time in his life when he raced motocross. He turns on his computer and searches for a Suzuki Hayabusa, his dream bike. His eyes fall upon a tricked-up `Busa which has a bit of damage and he goes looking for the talented artist who originally painted it so beautifully. Neither June nor Eric could have imagined the conflicts they had unleashed from the simple human act of looking to fulfill their dreams.
In the end, I couldn't name a category into which to fit Swallow the Moon. It is a hybrid book, a contemporary romance both character and plot driven, with elements of the supernatural. The characters are believable and well wrought, the settings realistically rendered. The author knows returning vets and their inner demons. Bringing outer demons into the equation seemed a natural thing, and gave us one of the coolest bad dudes ever in Van Man Go. The setup for the meeting between our leads was very well done, and set up the engaging plot equally well. A touch of humor here and there completed the appeal of the book.
As for the rituals, I'm thinking that conjuring up a few dreams for myself might be kind of fun...
