Keenan Swanson is your typical, everyday graphic designer. Well, except for the hundreds of pesky, prank-loving poltergeists that make his life interesting (in a Chinese curse sort of way). He finds his situation precarious yet manageable—until witty, smoking-hot coworker Isabella enters the scene and Keenan decides he wants her all for himself. With a horny succubus who has other ideas, a burly city cop determined to lock Keenan away, and an evil entity who’s hell-bent on using Keenan’s seed to create a living demon, the reluctant psychic realizes he just might not come out of this alive—or with heart intact.

Excerpt - Chapter I

PUBLISHERS WEEKLY - "I was engrossed by The Centurion and the Queen, and didn't put it down."

(Book III of the Centurion Series)
Excerpt - Chapter One

"5 stars - A must read Minnette will have you snared from the beginning of the book. You will think that you can figure out the secrets, but you will be surprised. An EXCELLENT read."

Prince Thane is the last surviving royalty of the Trinovantes Tribe in Roman Britannia, having surrendered to the Romans to save his two young daughters, whose identities he sacrifices his freedom to protect. He is condemned by Nero himself to become a gladiator, to fight until he dies in the arena. When his two daughters are taken in a slaver's raid, Thane escapes to find them.

Phaedra holds a terrible secret that would mean the death of her younger brother. Her only hope is to force the gladiator to protect them as they flee to Rome. He reluctantly agrees. Little does he know that the beautiful Syrian woman holds not only the key to his passion but a secret that triggers a disaster that ignites the world. Will this spoiled willful girl betray him in the end or sacrifice herself to save them all?


STARSIGHT I 

an epic fantasy
by Minnette Meador

Trenara never thought she would have to guide a student she loved to become a messiah, but it is the only way this second trial Starguider can salvage her world. 

“[Starsight] is one powerful and imaginative fantasy adventure novel with many nice touches...there is magic galore, and challenge galore; nothing comes easy. It's the first of a series, and it should do well...” Piers Anthony 

"Great characters. It wasn't till I picked up my copy of Minnette Meador's "Starsight," mailed freshly minted, signed and personalized by the author, that I realized how long it was since I'd enjoyed a fantasy (unless Harry Potter counts). I tried George R.R. Martin's books recently, but couldn't get into them - the short reading sessions of a busy life meant the story became too disjointed for me to follow. But Minnette has quickly rekindled my love of the genre."

"Starsight is just the beginning - I was so tired of the fantasy genre - until now. Starsight by Minnette Meador is a masterfully crafted story. I was totally involved by page three and unable to stop reading. This is rare for me, so recommend this book highly! I've already read the second volume, StarSight II and am even more impressed! 

"STARSIGHT-Entertaining from start to finish - STARSIGHT is quite the epic fantasy, which I hardly ever read, as I've always been grounded in reality and never had time for frivolity. But STARSIGHT is not frivolous... the characters are richly human, and their struggle between good and evil ranks with the most creative in literature."
