Almost one year ago, a Mage attacked Silver and changed the course of her destiny.

Immortals exist, and now she is one of them.

Within the dark and supernatural city of Cognito, Silver is living under the watchful eye of her Ghuardian and dating her mortal enemy. Neither man can protect her from a dark secret, one buried within the contents of a box. As rival factions struggle to gain control, she finds herself in the middle of a centuries-old feud that threatens to drive a wedge between her and Logan Cross, the man who intends to seduce her.

In an explosive turn of events, one life is saved and another is forever altered. Can Silver trust those around her, or are they hiding a dark secret of their own?

Excerpt #1

“Silver, what’s come over you? Stop running from me!” Anger fueled Logan’s voice.

I slowly pivoted around. Logan raked his fingers through his hair and paced toward me. As the space closed between us, the back of my legs bumped against the ledge of the building. A gust of wind blew his long hair to the right and he stopped—eyes locked on my feet.

“Don’t move, Silver. Do you want to tell me why Levi pinned me to the sidewalk while you ran away?”

I swung my leg over the low wall when he stepped forward. He abruptly stopped, flicking his eyes to the perilous drop several stories below. A car horn sounded a million miles below us and a jet raced overhead.

“Stay where you are,” I warned. “Don’t come any closer.”

Logan tilted his head to the side and his jaw hung lax as he struggled to pick up my scent. The wind cooled my cheeks as it gusted from his direction.

In a split second, it shifted.

Wild strands of black hair rippled in front of my face and tangled together. That’s when his eyes widened and Logan drew in a deep breath.

The visceral look on his face caused me to lean back. Deadly canines punched out and Logan flipped his switch, becoming a slave to instinct. His malicious obsidian gaze reminded me of what it felt like to be prey in the eyes of a hunter.

I held my hands out defensively.

Silence blanketed the rooftop. The air never felt so crisp and it was the first time in a long time that I was afraid of Logan.

Meet ADAM!

NAME: Adam



STATUS/CAREER: As a newly created Mage, Adam lives under the care of his Creator.

HAIR: Dark brown with a slight wave. Thick and luscious fistable hair.

EYES: Dark brown, but there are tiny sparkles of light deep within them, as if they’re catching the sun. This is inherited from his Creator.

BODY: 6’2” tall. Rugged, yet classically handsome features. Square jaw, usually doesn’t shave. Adam has a charismatic, sexy smile that is wolfish. He keeps his body in shape as he is an avid runner. He’s just a man’s man, not overly muscular or even lean, but if you were playing a sport that was separated by “Shirts and skins”, you would want Adam to be on “skins” team.

PERSONALITY: Adam has a caregiver personality, the kind of man who wants to do the right thing and look out for those that he’s close to. He’s loyal and despite his rough past, is a sensitive soul. He’s got a charming personality, is a practical thinker, and drives a motorcycle or a beat-up Land Rover.

BIO: Adam’s parents died, and he dropped out of high school to get a job and take care of his twin sister. Life became difficult for him, and he took the long, hard road to get where he is today. There’s a lot from his past that he hasn’t been able to let go of, and has always carried the guilt of the things that he’s done because of the hate he carried in his heart for so long. Adam wants more for himself, but life just seems to be constantly kicking the shit out of him.

CLOTHING STYLE: Loves the casual look. He prefers being barefoot in a pair of Saturday jeans. He does things casual, with a T-shirt or a longs-sleeved cotton shirt. You’re not likely to see him in a suit or expensive clothes unless it’s a formal affair, and when you do, he’ll knock your socks off.

QUOTE: “Some men do stick around.”

When I'm not writing (which is all the time), I'm listening to obscure music, watching movies, reading, discovering new ways to humiliate myself bowling, and burning up my laptop battery on the internet. I live with a cat who thinks she is a dog, or a goat (she eats plastic, so I'm not sure which).

Some people count sheep when they have insomnia. Since I was little, I used to make up stories in my head in a futile attempt to bore myself to sleep. The problem was, I'd get so wrapped up in my "head stories" that I would continue them through the following nights, changing it up each time to make it more exciting. Eventually, I started writing my ideas down more and more, creating short stories which evolved into poetry.

Lots and lots of poetry. It's almost embarrassing that I have an entire box loaded with spiral notebooks filled with furious, heartfelt, and blushing words. Apparently, I had a lot to say.

Another one of my hobbies is digital art. I designed all my book covers.

I am finally doing what I have always wanted to: giving my characters a pulse through publishing. I write adult urban fantasy romance, but I don't like labels. I let the story tell itself, and color outside the lines. I am not a YA author, but I think it’s pretty great that there are so many books available to teens in Urban Fantasy and Paranormal. These are the future readers!

The work that goes behind self publishing is hard work, I won't lie. On top of my regular day job: I write, edit, format, create cover art, and market.

But it's what I love to do, and someday, I'm going to be doing this full time.
