*~ New Release & Review ~*~ Stain (My Soul To Wake #1) By Tara Oakes

True love.These are the things of legend. Unexplained, some even say impossible, but nonetheless prevalent in stories and tales from all cultures and in every land from the beginning of time. What if there is something to it? What if there is an explanation behind the mysteries and bedtime stories? Something beyond words?SALEM, MASSACHUSETTES 1692She was taken from him in the cruelest way… condemned, sentenced and punished out of fear of the unknown. How is he supposed to live without her? How can he go on knowing that in this life, by the natural order of things, they will never be together? There’s only one thing to do… only one option that will bring them together again.SALEM , MASSACHUSETTES TODAYAmelia is taken on a weekend excursion with her best girlfriends to let loose, relax and have a little fun. What harm is there in a little vacation? It’s not like the legends, the haunted history of the place can scare them away. It’s all harmless fun.Or so she thought.

Something seems familiar about the town. The trees, the winds, the feel of everything. Her ever present nightmares have become more intense within the limits of the old historical setting. She’s prepared to write off the whole trip as nothing more than a case of her mind running away with the sensationalized magic here. When she meets a handsome stranger who’s eager to know her in a way no one else can, she begins to think there may be something more to this place, something more to him.

Will has been waiting, biding his time, and praying that she’ll come back. He’s broken the natural order of things to possibly find her again, weaving their way through the years until they can be together again. He knows he may never find her, but he can’t risk not trying. This place calls to her, just as it did to him. It will bring her back home. It will bring her back to him.

What’s 300 years when it comes to true love? He’s prepared to wait an eternity if he has to, just to see her, hold her, kiss her again.. to make her remember what was stolen from them so long ago. To make her remember who she is, the power she possesses and the love they swore to each other.

 ~*~ My Review ~*~

Firstly I would like to thank the lovely Tara for kindly providing me with a copy of “Stain-My Soul To Wake” to read and review
This will be my first time in reading anything that she has written and I’ve fallen in love.!
I love anything supernatural and, the history of the Salem witch trials is ever so fascinating.
This is the story of Leah who is young and beautiful. Unfortunately, she suffers from nightmares, if that’s what they are, which have tormented her since her childhood causing major problems with with friendships and relationships.
We also meet Will, who is a tortured soul looking for his loved one, he never once thought that she would leave his side, he was to be wrong
How long will one wait for love to return?
or even if that same love will return…
This is a story about love, reincarnation, witches and witchcraft.
I was resentful when real life intruded as I read this full length novel. It sort of ends on a cliff hanger but yet you feel completed within, if that makes sense.
This story takes you on an adventure where you want to believe it all with the twist and turns you find it hard to decide, but the decision is made for you at the end.
I for one can’t wait for the next instalment – Sister, coming Fall 2015
