The Arcos/Connelly Family Tree

Two of my paranormal romance book series are connected through family bloodlines. While the Beneath the Shadows of Evil Series has one book built upon another, the Connelly Witch Series doesn’t require the reader to read one book before the next. Neither series is dependent upon the other either, but for those who have not read Beneath the Shadows of Evil and haven’t met the character who lived long ago, I have detailed the family’s lineage. The magic that began with a wild Gypsy and her husband’s demented sister still flows through the veins of those who have come after them. The blood ties are strong, and the new family’s oath to protect mankind is even stronger.

If your interest is piqued and you decide to look into the Beneath the Shadows of Evil Series, then I would advise avoiding the family tree because it contains spoilers.
