Souls Entwined is Anne B. Cole’s debut release, combining sweet romantic suspense, time travel, and paranormal elements in a New Adult novel attractive to a wide range of readers.

In addition to writing, Anne teaches preschool and is raising three very active teenagers with her husband of twenty-two years. Her love for making fresh baked goodies, running, hiking, historical fiction, and her three pet cats continue to be her inspiration while she pens the sequel to Souls Entwined.

Blurb

When a cursed family heirloom sends Gretta Dobbs back in time, a hunky construction worker, Sam Daggett, suddenly finds himself love struck and joins her adventure. Their souls entwine within the bodies of young lovers on a Greek island in 1829, where they begin to unravel the mysteries behind Gretta’s ring all while avoiding a bloodthirsty pirate who is determined to seek revenge. Gretta and Sam must find the secrets needed to save her and her relatives from an afterlife in purgatory and return to their own lives—or risk becoming prisoners of the past, continuing the evil cycle of the ring’s curse.

Excerpt
From Chapter Two

Not a sound was heard as Sam’s eyes snapped open. Under the branches of the downed tree, Purple Shorts began to stir.

“Sorry, are you okay?” Sam gently lifted his weight off her.

“I think so,” she replied faintly. Sam released his hold on her shoulder, amazed her face wasn’t scratched. He wondered how bad he appeared.

“Do you think you can stand?”

She nodded. Together they rose to their feet, easily stepping out from the tangle of branches. Eyes growing wide, she began to sway.

“Sit,” Sam commanded, steadying her.

“No, look!” She pointed.

Sam gazed over his shoulder. His mouth fell open. Beneath the tree, their bodies lay, motionless.

“Are we . . .” Purple Shorts began, but Sam shook his head slowly.

Before she could say more, he interrupted, “I don’t know. Do you feel—”

“Dead?”
He scanned the area for help. Everything around them was still, as if they were watching a movie and someone hit ‘pause.’ No wind, no sound, no movement. He flinched when cold fingers clutched his hand.
Squeezing gently, he lifted her hand in front of their faces. “Can you feel this?”

Purple Shorts nodded.

“I don’t think we’re dead,” Sam whispered, gazing into her blue eyes.

  1. I don’t expect you to post this, I am reading highland deception on kindle and it is driving me nuts with the use of the word bolts whenever Kenneth fastens his hair back. I am assuming this was a spell checker gone mad. I even went looking for an obscure definition that I perhaps didn’t know about but there is nothing relating to hair and the root of the word according to the Oxford English Dictionary is this: Old English, ‘arrow’, of unknown origin; related to Dutch bout and German Bolzen ‘arrow, bolt for a door’.

    I get more irritated by poor use of the English language as I get older but I thought I would let you know as I suspect it is not of our making 🙂

    1. Hi Yvonne,

      I really wanted to put this over on the Highland Deception page…I feel bad that it’s taking up Anne’s space! But, alas, I am technologically challenged, and couldn’t figure out how to move a comment without trashing it, and I thought you deserved to be heard and to receive a response.

      The choice to use that word is mine.

      The intent was a very specific type of fastening–one of the definitions I found is “to fasten, as if by bolt,” which is how I intended it. I failed to describe the fastener as I envisioned it. While I am certain I’ve seen the term used the way I did, I can’t find any instances of it in my iPad, which, admittedly, does not bode well for me.

      Certainly, in the future, I will choose different words, or describe my fasteners better. Depending on where you are in the book, you shouldn’t run into too many more instances. The term is used four times overall, so not too many more, I promise.

      Thank you for taking the time to write to me. I really do appreciate the feedback. Any errors within the text (excluding formatting, as I have no control over that–that’s up to the publisher!) are my responsibility.

      Have a great evening, and I appreciate your feedback.

      Sincerely yours,

      M
