Two guys, one girl, and two dark secrets that threaten to tear her world apart.
Alice Wright is a young vampire going to high school for the first time at the age of seventeen at the behest of her eccentric mother. In many ways, she's more afraid of the human students than they would be of her.
She feels lost and awkward in human society, but she soon develops a strong bond with the cousin of one of her human classmates, nineteen year old Kai. He is beautiful, but somewhat of an enigma. She discovers a dark secret in Kai's life, and she instantly wants to shelter him from the pain that has tormented him all his life.
Then she meets Maksim Augustine, the incredibly gorgeous guy who seems more like he should be a model than a high school student. She is overwhelmingly attracted to him physically, but her love for Kai causes her to continually push him away. Eventually, she discovers a frightening secret about Max, too.
But Max's secret threatens to destroy everything...
What will readers like about your book?
Many books in the YA/Paranormal Romance genre feature female characters who are weak or unlikable. My main character is strong, yet also kind and loving. There’s plenty of romance, but also a lot of action, especially later in the series.
Why did you go indie?
I didn’t want to wait for months or years for editors to review my work and for publishing companies to get around to publishing it. I wanted to reach readers immediately.
