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.

I propped myself up on my elbows. “I mean it. The thought of eternity… it makes me sick to my stomach. How has being alive for so long not driven you into complete madness?”

Julian arched his eyebrow, giving me a devilish grin. “Who says it hasn’t?”

I swatted his arm, fully aware of how rock-solid his biceps were. “I’m being serious.”

“Why do you think I’ve never laid a finger on my siblings? Even after they locked me up. Even after years of treating me as second-best?”

I shrugged.

“The thought of being alone, utterly alone in this world, terrifies me.”

I gulped, surprised by how frankly he was speaking. 

“Why do you think we’re so fiercely protective over one another? We fight and bicker like all siblings do—more so, as our history goes back so very far—but deep down, we know we need each other. Otherwise, what’s left for any of us to live for? We’ve seen the world. We’ve had adventures. We’ve loved, and watched hundreds upon hundreds of people we’ve cared about move on into the afterlife.” He trailed his finger along my cheekbone, tickling my skin. “I’d almost forgotten just how lonely I was until you came along.”

I studied him for a moment unsure if I should ask him what was really on my mind. But being in a relationship with someone meant being vulnerable with them. Asking the hard questions. Even if it was uncomfortable. 

“What was the point of the Choosing Ceremony?” It wasn’t something we spoke about often. I knew how much guilt he felt over the whole thing. And yet, I needed to know…

“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.”

“Thanks.”

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?”

“Yeah?”

“Don’t say I didn’t try to warn you.”

Book Review: Obsidian Son by Shayne Silvers

Obsidian Son, the first book in Shayne Silvers’ Nate Temple Series, has been on my TBR List forever. Silvers is a force to be reckoned within the indie author community. I’ve learned so much from various interviews I’ve heard from him, and I had a feeling this series was going to be fantastic.

Not surprisingly, this is a crazy-fun read. It’s one of those books that grabs you right from the beginning and doesn’t let go. I’ve never read another supernatural thriller, so I don’t have anything to compare it to. All I know is that he has crafted a very believable world with lifelike characters that you’ll be rooting for.

There’s a little something for everyone in this book – action, mystery and even a bit of romance.

I’m looking forward to reading the rest of the series!

Book Review: The Vampire War by Michelle Madow

The Vampire War is the fifth and final book in The Vampire Wish series, and oh my goodness! It did not disappoint.

I flew through the book. Madow expertly crafted competing storylines and weaved them together for the final book so beautifully. I think anyone who read the previous books will find it to be a satisfying conclusion.

What’s more, it’s the perfect lead-in to the next book in the overarching Dark World series, The Angel Trials.

Normally, I wouldn’t be drawn to a book about angels. I’ve never read one and honestly didn’t even know that was a thing in urban fantasy until recently. But since I’m already familiar with the characters from The Vampire Wish series, I’m curious enough to keep reading.

And, let’s face it – this will be the third series of Madow’s that I’ve read. Based on her other work, I know it won’t disappoint.
