College student Amy daydreams about romance with handsome pirates and sensual dark lords. But intense nightmares and hallucinations are robbing her of her sanity and destroying her health. Her friend Xavier, a Yaqui mystic, realizes her bizarre visions are real memories from Amy's childhood. A malevolent presence from her forgotten past has come to claim her, heart and soul; Amy and her friends are in dire danger. Louis, a handsome voodoo priest, can help, but even his powers and the strength of his love may not be enough to save Amy. When Evil loves you, can you ever truly escape its embrace?

"Fans of horror thrillers will want to read the terrific RAGS AND OLD IRON that grips the audience from the opening classroom sequence until the final dream occurs. Readers will wonder whether Amy is losing her mind and causing the terror that haunts her or is something wicked from beyond coveting her in a bizarre courtship. Lorelei Shannon provides a powerful tale that will have her audience desiring more as we wonder until the end whether this is a tense psychological thriller or a terrifying supernatural suspense."-- BookReview.com

"I was impressed with how full the plot was without being overwhelming. The story resonates with magic, romance, and a sense of impossible things come to life."--Front Street Reviews
