If you’re new to my blog or not already familiar with my work, I’m currently writing a YA paranormal romance series called Vampires of Crescent Cape. It’s basically like a mashup of The Vampire Diaries, The Originals and The Selection.
Book 3 is coming soon, and I think it’s the best one yet! If you’re new to the series, be sure to start with Curses and Crowns. You can also snag a free copy of the origin story, Blood Heirs, by joining my Readers’ Group.
Enjoy this excerpt from my upcoming release, Stakes and Daggers.
“What would you do if you were in my position? What if you had never even laid eyes upon your own father?”
My brother laughed. “Honestly, Grace? I’d probably thank my lucky stars I’d never met him.”
“You don’t like him?”
“No one likes him. Respect him? Sure. Fear him? Absolutely. But what can I do? If I’m going to take over leading the coven one day…”
“Oh.” I dropped my head for a second before regaining my composure. “Well, Nick. I know you don’t know, er, anything about me yet. But allow me to fill you in. After what I’ve been through, nothing scares me. I don’t back down. I fight for what I want. And I will be heard. So, whether you think Reed is going to be ticked off by me showing up isn’t really a concern of mine. I have waited my entire life for answers. And I intend to get them.”
His mouth twitched into a smirk.
“What?” I snapped.
“You really are a Carlisle,” he said with a laugh. He craned his neck, looking past me. “Looks like the rain’s starting to let up. You can follow me to the compound if you want.”
He unclicked his seatbelt and got out of the car. He was about to walk away, but first, he ducked his head under the door frame. “Oh, and Grace?”
“Don’t say I didn’t try to warn you.”
