Two lovers embark on a metaphysical, highly erotic journey in this first novel in author J. Heather Cross’ new-age romance series, “Five Pines: A Journey of the Soul” (published by Balboa Press AU).

Clairvoyant Julie Kendrick has just about given up on life. Her second marriage has ended badly and her vocational direction seems pointless and unrewarding. Still, her intuitive call beckons her to seek life, so Julie packs up her belongings and takes off in her van. When she stops in the town of Jericho, South Dakota, she crosses paths with Jacob Red Pines, a handsome Native American architect.

A deep passion immediately ignites between the two, and a series of transformative spiritual experiences awaken their innermost connections and sexual desires. Yet even as a strong, loving bond of past-life recognition is reawakened between them, Julie and Jacob must face the odds if they want their newfound love to survive.

Described by the author as a cross between “'Fifty Shades of Grey' and 'A Course in Miracles' with a healthy dash of corporate intrigue,” “Five Pines” weaves an imaginative, erotic tale that blends metaphysical thought with aspects of a good thriller. Cross hopes to give readers an entertaining read as well offering as a few new spiritual concepts for consideration.
