~ A Christian Paranormal Romance ~
Nathaniel Taylor was a Christian who thought believers were exempted from "dark times." That was until he entered his own long time in the dark. When he meets Lilly, a young woman in danger, it sends him on a journey to discover the difference between night and day and that during dark times, the Light is hidden, not gone
I didn't know what to expect out of a Christian Paranormal Romance but I am glad I gave it a chance.It really spoke to me.It helped me see the Light in my own darkness.The Scriptures used were perfect to convey the message in this book.Nathaniel see the world how most of us see it :if we are good then we deserve good and how many Christians see the world:if I follow God then we will not suffer." We forget that even though Job was righteous is God's eyes,he still suffered and he held on to his trust that God was in control so he was blessed even more than he was before his time of suffering.Jesus suffered,The Disciples suffered,others who have spread the Gospel suffered so what makes us think we are excepted? I think we subconsciously look at the good part of promises of prosperity and blessings without examining all of what God said.He never promised we wouldn't suffer,he actually said we would,but he will walk us through the storm. We lose hope and forget to trust Him to lead us through because all we can see is the darkness,so we take control and instead of being lead by Him out of the darkness we stumble around in it then wonder why we can't see the Light.
Nathaniel was accustomed to living a blessed life.So when darkness falls on him,he believes he is out of God's reach.He never stops believing in God,he just loses hope that God can reach into the darkness to bring him back to the light.Then he meets Lilly,who despite her suffering,has hope.But Nathaniel still has to decide if he is going to just stand in the shadows of light that Lilly projects or if he is going to walk fully into the light.

Author Bio:Melissa Turner Lee
I'm a stay-at-home mom of three of the CRAZIEST boys ever. And I love them to bits. I'm also a wife to a wonderful man I met when I was 17. He went to a different High School than I did but we both worked at McDonald's. It was before texting and cell phones so we'd write notes at school and exchange them at work. We'd also talk to each other over the drive-thru headsets. Then he told me he had a picture he had drawn for art class long before he knew me that his cousin pointed out looked just like me. The picture went missing when we got married and moved into our first home together. This was kind of the inspiration for The Earth Painter.
I have a degree in Journalism and Marketing which I have never used because I've been home with my boys. Then one day my man sent me to the local book store for a day to myself. I picked up Twilight by Stephenie Meyer and my life changed. I remembered being 17. I remembered falling in love. But most of all I remembered ME. I'd become "Mommy" and forgotten all about Melissa, the girl who dreamed of being a writer, but suddenly I remembered and the writing started. And It hasn't stopped.
