Emily Macque, a young, beautiful junior partner in her father’s law firm, is but a heartbeat away from love or destiny. Duty brings Emily to a frozen Island estate two hundred and fifty miles north of Chicago. Devotion requires she delve into the property history to settle an estate probate. Death lures her into the arms of the shadows seduction created by the flickering light and dark shadows.
What flames the timeless passions spanning the decades? Love, desire or obsession?
Colin Jorgenson, once a Great Lakes mariner, is a strong man haunted by love and loss. How long will he return each night, gripped by desire, hoping to find the woman he has loved for a century?
Beneath the pristine Island beauty, passions hungered, lingered in the ardent darkness. His passions, fueled by decades of loneliness and longing, could no longer be denied. Will they face eternity together or love in secret as dark things are to be loved between the shadows and the soul?
It all started with death. Emily Macque’s Uncle John died and she was sent by her father’s law firm to handle his probate, personal affairs, and summer estate. She was also sent there to rest as she was recently diagnosed with a heart condition. Such is the beginning of Muffy Wilson’s The Para-Portage of Emily. Emily’s stay was supposed to be uneventful. However, as she dug deeper, she uncovered more than what was normal. Muffy Wilson wrote about a love which transcends time. In the Para-Portage of Emily, this love was put under scrutiny and was explained thoroughly.
The novel was exquisitely done. It was written with such grace that even when it took time to uncover all the mysteries, it was worth it in the end. The dialogues were cleanly written, too. This was a book I had the pleasure of savoring. How Muffy Wilson wrote it will give readers the right feel. The sensitive details were written with such grace that it didn’t sound too much. In terms of the characters, they were like real life people. They were suitable for the story and not out of place. As far as I’m concerned, I’m in love with Emily. In addition to that, I was torn between Colin and Cooper. Overall, I think The Para-Portage of Emily is a wonderful, seductive read. It’s definitely a page-turner. If you are a fan of romance, this book is an indulgence. It was mine.
This book is just brilliant and so damn good. I was hooked in the story within a few pages and I just couldn’t stop reading the book. It was impossible to put it down once I had started. The story is very well written and unfolds very nicely for the reader. It drags you in and keeps you spellbound.
Their is a nice mix between paranormal, romance and mystery in the book and you can see that Muffy Wilson combines them very well in this book. I must say that just the way of combining things into one book is what makes this book so good. It is not just pure anything, but more than pure awesome.
I like how the story is told and how the book is written. The style and tone is very well done and the tone of the language and how the language is used to drag the reader in, is what makes the book so good. Emily is also a very entertaining character that I like a lot and at first I was unsure about her but the more I got to know her the better I liked her. The character development and how they grow and change in the book is also very nice and very well done. You can see the character changing and growing in the story and how they react to things in the story to a good way.
This is a must to read book because it is very well written with a very good storyline that is easy to follow, but still gives you surprises. I just LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this book!

‘Game of Love’
“My darling…how I have missed you. While you were away today, my love, I thought of little else but you. I wrote to you. Let me read to you what I wrote…
There is a captivating sort of magical look in your eyes that tells me there are a few surprises lurking within that beautiful brain—and mayhap, those loins—of yours.
It is the kind of look that invites me to step closer, much closer, until we are touching
but not touching; just sort of “feeling” each other’s presence.
My face hovers so close to your own and our eyes are not just locked into each other but more magnetically drawn, like moonbeams.
I reach up and brush the side of your face with my hand,
and your face is so close I can feel the warmth rising from you.
I keep my eyes on yours as long as the connection will last and then
I lean down and gently, ever so gently, brush my lips on yours.
It is positively electric and without noticing our bodies are suddenly pressed fully against each other pushing with a sense of urgency and need.
Our mouths press together and tongue seeks tongue,
warmth seeks warmth and need seeks need…
We kiss for what seems like forever or perhaps just an instant,
but who really knows…
Things happen for reasons, good reasons we have no business questioning or comprehending…
Here. Now. I want you…
I want to look into those mischievous eyes and see them soften with desire.
I want to look up at your face from my explorations of your velvet folds and see a look of complete passionate surrender overtake you.
I want to feel my touch move you to places we can only explore together…
I want you to sit astride me, so I can look up at you.
And I want you to ride me to the edge of the abyss, where we both hover,
hang in that sweet incalculable moment;
that moment of wanting to tumble over, to plummet, but wanting even more to NOT…
to have it last, as long as we can stand it,
there on the edge of cataclysmic satisfaction,
but holding it off, and holding it, and holding it, and….
I can’t wait for when you finally gasp and sob and
your body spasms and lurches and you fall against my chest,
our bodies pushed together in the heat and the fertile humidity
and your hair cascades across my face and I breathe you in;
I breathe US in, rich, earthy, the smell of fresh baked bread, or just uncorked champagne.
“Come with me, my love, come. Let me show you the depth of my passion, the breadth of my yearning, the hunger I bear for only you in this, our game of love.”
“Colin, beloved…it is no game to me, for you are my life, my breath, my heartbeat.”
The woman rose to her petite height in her buttoned high-heeled boots tight at her small ankles. She was dressed in a broad skirt cinched tightly at the waist with a wide leather belt. Her blouse was broad and blouson with a cascading lace flurry, pinned by a jewel-encrusted cameo, from her small neck down. She wore a short-waisted, scalloped jacket, collarless, a single button under her ample bodice, sporting three-quarter sleeves which exposed an explosion of lace ruffles at the cinched wrists of the blouse beneath. Her wild auburn hair was tied up in ribbons and curls which he released with a mere tug on a single velvet end. The red-hued ringlets of silken curls fell around her shoulders to her back and breasts. The soft wisps of curls framed the beauty that was her face and her eyes softened with love and desire.
“Disrobe, Amalya, here before the fireplace, in the moonlight and heat of our love. Take the shackles which separate us off one by beautiful one and leave them in a puddle of cotton and gabardine at your feet. Leave but the pearls that adorn your earlobes and neck and let them pale in your shadow.”
“Colin, you flatter me so, but I adore it and would never deny your wishes. Here, sit in your chair, by Puppy, and I shall dance for you by firelight, moonlight and God’s light. For our love is a love that is pure and true. I waited my entire life for you to claim me as your own. I will not deny myself the pleasures of your desires—nor mine.”
