“Romance blends with Norse mythology in this fast-paced debut. […] Readers looking for plenty of steamy love scenes and a strong heroine who refuses to be a damsel in distress will appreciate this humorous, action-filled paranormal.”  – Publisher’s Weekly



Murder and fate unite Bryn Ullman and Trygg Mackenzie in the search for a butcher.

She’s a PI blessed with retrocognition but cursed with a paralyzing fear of the dark. He’s part bodyguard, part feral berserker and entirely sure that a loss of his control will add to the body count.

Lies, secrets, and enemies on all sides hobble their attempts to discover the truth. But it’s their passion that poses the real danger, propelling them on a collision course with Bryn’s deadly birthright and Trygg’s ties to her devastating past.

He swears that she’s his wyrd, but in the dark can she actually trust the love of a monster?

About PJ


PJ Friel – Paranormal Romance Author & Fantasy Artist

Living in a small village was peaceful–for the bedraggled Mr. and Mrs. Friel, parents of eight children. For their daughter PJ, the village of Gnadenhutten was a study in boredom. Her only excitement was found in skulking around the old graveyard at midnight with her friends and badgering the librarians at the local library. When told she wasn’t allowed to read adult romance (at the age of twelve), PJ decided to use the mail-order library instead.

Sirena the Sea Siren sailed into her life (courtesy of Fern Michaels) and a respect for bold, gutsy women was born.

When PJ isn’t terrorizing the highways of Ohio in her red, mid-life crisis, sports car or crunching numbers in Excel spreadsheets, she’s writing about sword-wielding, ass-kicking, willful, sometimes wanton women and the men who are strong enough to love them.  

Her hobbies include reading and creating artwork that reflects the juxtaposition of sensuality and strength in women.  

She is currently single and lives with her son, who thinks he’s the boss of her. You can find her on Facebook, Twitter or Pinterest.


PJ has one short story “The Needing” published in the
“Death Sparkles Anthology.”

It’s available on Amazon, Smashwords and Nook.



A Twist of Wyrd – Book 1 in her paranormal romance series with a Norse Mythology background – is available now on Amazon.
