“I hope you rot in Tartarus,”

Title:  Betrayed
Series:  The Guardian Legacy [Book 2]
Length:  343 Pages
Genre:  YA Fantasy

Five of Valafar’s men, dressed all in black except for the gleaming ruby stones on the pins holding their cloaks and on their belt buckles, entered the room. Behind them came Kenta; he carried a black leather bag with strange writings, clasps, and more rubies. It was the same bag Valafar had had, when I first retrieved the Kris Dagger from the cave on Coronis Isle.

“I told Valafar—if you want something done right, you do it yourself,” Solange bragged. She gestured to Kenta. “Remove their weapons.”

“Traitor,” I snarled at Kenta.

He winced, but emptied my pockets, then moved to my boots. As our former trainer, he knew everything—where we hid weapons, our weaknesses and strengths, our favorite weapons. He touched the knife I hid inside a pouch in my right boot, but didn’t remove it.

Our gazes met – his apologetic, mine probably puzzled. Maybe he was regretting his decision, now that he knew Valafar had used him and he wouldn’t be my trainer, after all, or this was his way of redeeming himself after his betrayal. He had trained me for months and knew me. He patted my boot, as though to tell me to use the dagger, then moved on.

Kim kicked him, but he caught her booted leg.

“Don’t judge me, Kim,” he snarled.

“Don’t tell me what to do, you evil backstabber,” she retorted.

“I hope you rot in Tartarus,” Izzy hissed.

“Enough!” Solange yelled. “Finish and give me the bag, Kenta. My father wants the weapons kept with the dagger in the vault. No chance in Tartarus any of you are getting your hands on them again,” she taunted. “Come, starting with you, Lilith.”

I ground my teeth and walked forward. The hated hollow feeling settled in my stomach, and my heartbeat went into overdrive. The cramp on my side wasn’t going away, either. Where were Dante and Kael?

Eye to eye with her, I paused. “I escaped before, and will again.”

“You got lucky,” she snarled, and shoved me out the door.

"It's like I never left"

Title: Grimnirs
Series: The Runes Series [Book 2.5]
Length: 286 Pages
Genre: YA Paranormal


“Hey,” Raine said.

I wanted to ignore her again and even tried to leave, but her boyfriend blocked my path. I glared at him. Sighing, I turned and faced Raine. There was no point showing her how much she’d hurt me, and her whipped puppy look was getting tired. She’d never been good at hiding her emotions.

“Hi,” I said. “I like your hair.”

She blinked as though surprised. “Thanks. I know what you’ll say about this. I use a curling iron.”

I wasn’t ready to be that chummy with her. If she wanted to ruin her hair, I didn’t care.

“Uh, this is Torin St. James,” she said when she realized I wasn’t going to say anything else. “Torin, Cora Jemison, my best friend.”

Yeah, right. Some best friend.

Torin smiled and nodded, but he continued to watch me as though he expected me to, I don’t know, say something mean to Raine. What would he do?

I gave him a challenging glance and said, “I saw your pictures online.”

“It’s ridiculous how he always ends up on some girl’s page,” Raine said. “Alone. Shirtless.”

“Actually, the ones I saw were of the two of you,” I corrected.

“Oh.” She glanced at him and elbowed him when he grinned. She leaned against him and focused on me. “Uh, it’s nice to have you back, Cora.”

I shrugged. “It’s weird.”

She exchanged a look with Torin and frowned. “What do you mean?”

“It’s like I never left.” I waited for her to say something about my psych ward stay, or give me a clue about what she knew. I wasn’t sure what she’d told my mother a week ago or what Mom had told her. I hadn’t cared enough to ask.

An awkward silence followed.

“We stopped by your place on Friday after school,” Raine said. “I don’t know if your father told you.”

What are they saying about SOULS?

Eighteen-year-old Cora Jemison knows what it’s like to date a soul reaper. There are no Friday night movies, no school dances, and no stolen kisses between classes. It totally sucks! What makes it even worse, souls pop up when she least expects it. The last one is not her fault, but it all adds up to zero quality time with her super hot, scythe-carrying boyfriend, Echo. 

Since Cora was etched with special runes by an evil Immortal, she understands why souls are drawn to her. She makes the best of it by helping souls find closure while Echo escorts them to the realm of the dead. Perfect partners, until a dark soul visits Cora in the dead of the night and Echo decides her soul-helping days are over. 

Cora can either listen to Echo or follow her instincts. To make matters worse, other reapers start stalking her, demanding she hand over the soul. Even her Valkyrie friends think she’s gone too far. But something sinister is coming their way, and the soul is the key to saving her town, her friends, and her relationship with Echo. Can she convince Echo to see things her way before it’s too late? 


Grimnirs series, featuring Cora and Echo, is a spinoff the Runes series and can also be read as part of the entire series in this order: 

5.0 out of 5 stars Another AMAZING book by the author September 29, 2014
By Soft Paws

"The romance scenes between Cora and Echo are beyond incredible - they are so hot together in the bedroom. Echo is just such an amazing lover. In fact I cannot make up my mind about whom I love the most - Echo, Torin or Andris. I do actually hope we get a book about Andris too!"

5.0 out of 5 stars More Cora and Echo...yummy October 4, 2014
By Evilous

"Oh the feels. I won't say when, if you haven't read this book, but there were a couple of scenes where it pulled on my heart strings and gave me a serious case of the feels where I had to stop reading for a bit and do something else. Hey I was at work and I refuse to cry because of a book at work; the guys would never let me live it down and I'd scare people away if they came to the window. So keep tissues handy."

4.0 out of 5 stars I am in love with these characters! October 4, 2014
By Carrie Williams

"The witty banter, the fun and "real" interactions they have, the convincing high school feel (all while being surrounded by *a lot* of supernatural action), all made it a great addition to this series. Even after just finishing, I still want more of Cora and Echo. Give me a book about this feisty, sexy, fun couple any day of the week and I will read it in a heartbeat."

Here is a little excerpt from SOULS for those that have not joined the party yet. 

“But if you’d rather wait, I’ll understand,” Echo said, stroking my neck, his breath fanning the hair on my temple. “Then I’ll do my best to change your mind. It might take several weeks or months, but I can be relentless and very creative.”
I giggled. “Then I’ll wait.”
He grinned. I could tell by the way his lips moved against my forehead. “You want me to change your mind?”
“Why not? Relentless and creative sounds like something I might enjoy,” I said.
He leaned back and peered at me. Runes lit up his face, and a cocky smile curved his lips. “If you knew the naughty things I have planned for you, you’d not be teasing me,” he warned. “We can start now.”
Where the heck did he get his energy? “Can I finish high school first? Maybe get a degree in psychology, too?” I added.
“Sure. I’ll help you study.”
I scoffed at the idea. “That’s a scary thought.”
“Your professors and the students won’t even know I’m there,” he bragged. “I’d be the invisible ghost smacking the guys staring at you.”
I loved the idea, but a girl had to show some pride. “No haunting my college, Echo. Besides, you hate school.”
He smirked. “Ah, but you are the reason for my existence now, doll-face, which means putting your needs first.”
“And whining about it,” I said and traced a line across his chest, still undecided whether to tell him about tonight’s encounter with the dark soul or not. His muscles leaped and responded to my touch.
“I don’t whine. I complain forcefully.” The smile left his face. “You’re beginning to scare me. What is it?”
I could never keep a secret from him when he spoke like he could single-handedly rip apart anyone or anything that hurt me and enjoy every second of it.
“I had a strange visitor tonight,” I said.
