A Note From Charmaine Pauls

I hope you'll enjoy reading my books as much as I loved creating them. The new Seven Forbidden Arts series fall in the goth pop genre, which is a contemporary, popular version of gothic romance, where setting and ambience are crucial parts of the story. Emotions are always passionate, descriptions vivid without being overbearing, and the focus is on the development of the relationship between the hero and heroine. I love communicating with my readers and always welcome feedback.
