Book Description:
Edric Kensington promised himself that he would never be close to anyone outside of his family. Ellie Kent promised herself that she would always do what she thought was right no matter what. Cassie Kent promised herself that she would never date a married man. Sometimes promises get broken. Sometimes feelings get hurt. Sometimes friendships collapse. Sometimes standards slip. And yet, sometimes people overcome their flaws and find love. 
A Sibling’s Dilemma is a contemporary romance novel that revolves around two sisters: Cassie and Ellie Kent. Cassie is a private detective and Ellie is a recent college graduate. Cassie is hired by Charlie Logan, the CEO of a company specializing in virtual reality games, to spy on Charlie’s greatest professional rival—Edric Kensington. This is no easy task--Edric Kensington is known for being as cold and guarded as he is handsome. To successfully infiltrate Edric’s company, Cassie needs to have an insider work there. Her shy-and-sweet sister, Ellie, is the perfect fit. When Ellie first works for Edric’s company, she is afraid of the cold and aloof CEO, but, over time, she develops romantic feelings for him, just like Cassie develops feelings for Charlie Logan. The two sisters become torn between their friendship with each other and the feelings that they harbor for the handsome CEOs who have stolen their hearts. 


Ellie Kent sat nervously in the top floor of the Kensington group building. She wrung her hands and then fidgeted with the second copy of her résumé.

Am I qualified for this? I hope I’m good enough. I don’t want to let Cassie down.

She made herself as small as possible as she sat in the waiting room chair. Ellie smiled warmly at the nearby workers, turned bright-red, and then looked back down at her resume, avoiding all eye-contact with them once more.

They probably think I’m weird looking, or too scrawny. Ellie frowned. Her heart was racing a mile a minute.

“Mr. Kensington is ready for your interview.”
“Thank you.” She stood up and then followed the secretary over to the doors. The young woman went to pull the door open, realized that it could only be open by being pushed, blushed, and then pushed it open.
Oh God. I can’t even open a door right.

Ellie walked inside the room and saw Edric Kensington sitting behind his desk. He appeared to be quite bored and unamused. She was surprised by how young he looked, she guessed he was in his early-to-mid thirties. Surprisingly handsome too—he was tall and slightly muscular with strong and symmetrical facial features and unblemished, olive skin. The pictures in the paper didn’t do him justice.

Edric wore a crisp navy-blue suit and had silver cufflinks. His chestnut-brown hair was combed neatly and seemed to frame his face well. Everything about him seemed put together. Ellie immediately felt embarrassed by her own appearance. She wore a light grey skirt suit that she got from the thrift store, which was just slightly too big for her.

The CEO stood up from behind his mahogany desk and walked over to Ellie. She immediately felt intimidated by his height and somewhat muscular stature—it made her feel small and scrawny. And she hated feeling small and scrawny. Suddenly she wished that Cassie were there with her. Someone strong that she could draw strength from.

He reached over and extended his hand to her. “Edric Kensington.”

Ellie reached over to accept the handshake. It was strong and firm. Almost a little too much so, it hurt her small hand.

Oh no, I gave him a weak, limp handshake. I’m not supposed to do that. He probably won’t want to hire me because of it.

“Eleonore Kent.” Ellie’s pale cheeks were flushed red. She averted her eyes to the floor.

“Take a seat.” Edric pointed to the chair opposite his desk. He slowly walked away from the young woman and sat behind his desk—she noticed that he had a confident gait about him.
Ellie knew that she looked flustered. She was

More than 6 million readers have already fallen in love with the Sullivans! Now get ready to meet your new favorite family in Bella Andre's New York Times and USA Today bestselling contemporary romances with the first three books in the #1 hit series.

"Not since Nora Roberts has anyone been able to write a big family romance series with every book as good as the last! Bella Andre never disappoints!" Revolving Bookcase Reviews

Chloe Peterson is having a bad night. A really bad night. The large bruise on her cheek can attest to that. And when her car skids off the side of a wet country road straight into a ditch, she's convinced even the gorgeous guy who rescues her in the middle of the rain storm must be too good to be true. Or is he?

As a successful photographer who frequently travels around the world, Chase Sullivan has his pick of beautiful women, and whenever he's home in San Francisco, one of his seven siblings is usually up for causing a little fun trouble. Chase thinks his life is great just as it is--until the night he finds Chloe and her totaled car on the side of the road in Napa Valley. Not only has he never met anyone so lovely, both inside and out, but he quickly realizes she has much bigger problems than her damaged car. Soon, he is willing to move mountains to love--and protect--her, but will she let him?

For thirty-six years, Marcus Sullivan has been the responsible older brother, stepping in to take care of his seven siblings after their father died when they were children. But when the perfectly ordered future he's planned for himself turns out to be nothing but a lie, Marcus needs one reckless night to shake free from it all.

Nicola Harding is known throughout the world by only one name - Nico - for her catchy, sensual pop songs. Only, what no one knows about the twenty-five year old singer is that her sex-kitten image is totally false. After a terrible betrayal by a man who loved fame far more than he ever loved her, she vows not to let anyone else get close enough to find out who she really is...or hurt her again. Especially not the gorgeous stranger she meets at a nightclub, even though the hunger - and the sinful promises - in his dark eyes make her want to spill all her secrets.

Gabe Sullivan risks his life every day as a firefighter in San Francisco. But after learning a brutal lesson about professional boundaries, he knows better than to risk his heart to his fire victims ever again. Especially the brave mother and daughter he saved from a deadly apartment fire...and can't stop thinking about.

Megan Harris knows she owes the heroic firefighter everything for running into a burning building to save her and her seven-year-old daughter. Everything except her heart. Because after losing her navy pilot husband five years ago, she has vowed to never suffer through loving - and losing - a man with a dangerous job again.

Interview with Allie Frost, author of I'm With You @frostallie

Welcome author Allie Frost to PNR&More for an interview! Read on below for our interview and to learn more about her book I'm With You.

Hi! Would you tell us a little bit about yourself?
My name is Allie Frost! I am a dedicated consumer of dark roast coffee, a fan of YA and fantasy fiction of all kinds, and a lover of rainy afternoons. Outside of writing, I enjoy reading, traveling, playing video games, going for long, leisurely strolls, and watching movies.

Can you tell us a little bit about your book?
I’m With You is a story about family, the many faces of love, and the importance of “home.” Though it’s a YA novel and mainly follows a fifteen-year-old boy named Ciarán and his little sister, Remiel, they are joined on their journey by characters from various stages of life with their own stories to tell. Each person has a role to play in the overall plot, but the heart of the story is the exploration of their personalities and their growing relationships with one another.

Which came first for you, the characters or the plot?
It’s always characters first, for me. Readers connect to the characters, so it’s vital for them to be relatable, even if a story is set in a fictional world. In I’m With You, the characters are the backbone of the story, and I wanted readers to be invested in their individual journeys and experiences.

Where can we purchase your novel?
I’m With You is currently available on Amazon in print and ebook format, and in print from the Barnes and Noble website. Also, the ebook is currently $1.99 for a limited time (down from $4.99)!

Do you think you may ever go into another genre?
I’d like to venture into sci-fi since I’ve always loved sci-fi books and films. There are endless possibilities to explore in a genre like that.

Do you think you will have a follow-up book to this novel or is it just a stand-alone novel?
It might end up as a stand-alone, but I’ve been playing with potential “side stories” told from the POV of the supporting characters. Each chapter would explore different characters and give insight into their lives pre (or post) I’m With You. I don’t think I’ll ever do a direct sequel, but a companion novel might be a fun way to show what it’s like inside the heads of the lesser-explored characters.     

Where do you see yourself at in five years—writing wise?
I’m hoping to have at least one (if not more) full YA series completed in the next five years.

If you are self-published, why did you decide to take this route of publishing?
I sort of fell into it by accident. I’d recently graduated from college and had finished a draft of I’m With You, but it was just collecting dust on my computer. One night, while researching different routes of publishing, I stumbled across a contest held by Dragon Tree Books that included a publishing package. I decided, “Why not?” and submitted my manuscript, and a couple of months later, I found out I’d won.

Do you have anything you would like to say to your readers?
I appreciate the response my work has received and I am always eager to hear from readers! It’s incredibly rewarding to know that people have enjoyed my writing, and I hope those who liked my first book will look forward to the stories I have yet to tell.

What is your favorite part of writing?
It may sound simple, but the best part for me is being able to express my ideas and thoughts in a creative fashion. Writing allows me to bring characters and worlds that I’ve been planning and thinking about to “life,” in a way, and it’s a great feeling to look back on a story or a chapter and see those ideas in action. And when I get to share them with others, it’s even better.

Random Quickies!

Favorite color?
Gray. Boring, I know – but it goes with everything!

Favorite book?
Peter Pan by J.M. Barrie.

Favorite book to movie?
The Lord of the Rings trilogy.

When fifteen-year-old Ciarán Morrigan eavesdrops on a conversation between his father and two mysterious strangers, his life—and the life of his little sister, Remiel—is changed forever. After their father makes a startling decision, the Morrigan siblings are forced to flee the only life they've ever known and embark on a dangerous adventure across the nation of Empirya. With the enlisted help of a disinherited vagabond, a cynical violinist, a fire-juggler with a fierce temper, an aspiring mechanic, and a cheerful librarian, Ciarán and Remiel must fight to escape the clutches of lethal pursuers. Their journey carries them through smog-filled cities, dark forests, humble towns, and perilous mountains, but will Remiel's dark secret and ghosts from the past prevent the Morrigan children from finding a place they can truly call home?

@thegourmez Interview & #Giveaway: Wings Unseen by Rebecca Gomez Farrell

Please help me welcome author Rebecca Gomez Farrell to PNR and More! Read on below for more info about her book and our interview. Also, don't miss the GIVEAWAY below! 

Hi! Would you tell us a little bit about yourself?

Rebecca Gomez Farrell: My name is Rebecca Gomez Farrell, and you can call me Becca now that we’ve been introduced. 😉 I write speculative fiction, so pretty much anything that fits under the umbrella of science fiction, fantasy, and horror, and I write all styles of it: humorous, epic, flash, silly, traumatic…the list goes on. Did I mention I’ve also had a contemporary sweet romance novella published? And that I blog about food, drink, and travel and used to write entertainment articles? I like to sum this all up by saying I’m a writer of fictions and strong leisure-time opinions.

I live in Oakland, CA, with my wonderfully supportive husband and two cats as co-workers.

Do you have anything you would like to say to your readers?

Rebecca Gomez Farrell: I have readers?! Thank you for existing! It is an honor when people tell me they enjoy my writing, because it’s ego-boosting, yes, but also because it means I’ve done something right in terms of connecting with my fellow human. For me, that’s the purpose of writing: effectively conveying an experience to someone else.

Can you tell us a little bit about your book?

Rebecca Gomez Farrell: Wings Unseen is my first novel-length publication, and I’ve been working on it since college, which was a decade and a half ago. For many years, I mainly daydreamed about what I wanted Wings Unseen to explore: a fantasy with bitterly divided cultures that must learn to work together for the good of all. I started writing it in drabbles around 2007 and then dedicated myself to writing in 2009. I finished my final draft and began submitting it out in late 2013.

But that’s process! What’s the book about? It’s about a self-assured young woman who hopes to inherit her father’s lands in a culture in which women are oppressed. It’s also about the prince of a neighboring land who hopes he can someday measure up to his own father and do right by his people. Oh, and also a near-princess who discovers that the trappings of royalty may be downright suffocating in the midst of deep grief. Don’t forget the plague of invisible creatures that eat people from the inside out, a silver flame that burns with power and menace, and mythical creatures that may or may not be real at all! It’s about those, too!

Which came first for you, the characters or the plot?

Rebecca Gomez Farrell: Characters are the building blocks of a story for me. I may start writing with a vague outline in my head of where I’d like the plot to begin and end, but the characters’ emotional journeys are the ones that are clearest to me. Through writing initial drafts, I work out how the plot needs to go to make those emotional journeys the most resonant.

You’re out demon hunting (because you’re that kind of awesome) and you come across one about to kill a young couple. He has not seen you yet; what is your first course of action?

Rebecca Gomez Farrell: Well, I was raised Pentecostal, so I’d instinctually start yelling out some prayers to protect myself and the couple. Because this is fiction, those prayers would take form as a dark cloud lined with sparking yellow light. It, and me, would speed over, placing ourselves between the couple and the demon, and the cloud would send lightning bolts straight into the demon, causing it to sizzle and scream an unearthly sound. The couple would also scream and clutch at each other. “I’ve got this!” I’d yell while pulling out a handy collapsible sword from my messenger bag. With a deep, ground-shaking yell, I’d slice right through the burning demon and the rest of it would turn to ash, dissipating into the night air. The cloud would send a localized storm to wash away all traces of the battle, and the couple would take me out for dinner, where I’d try not to scare them too much with the other things they’ve never seen before.

Where can we purchase your novel?

Rebecca Gomez Farrell: Hopefully, at a bookstore near you! But for sure at Amazon.com here or at Barnes and Noble. You can check your local library and request it, too, if it’s not available yet.

Can we expect more novels from you in 2017/2018?

Rebecca Gomez Farrell: It would be amazing if I have another novel out by the end of 2018, but that depends on how fast I can get my second book, a post-apocalyptic romance, into shape. I’m done with the first draft, but I’ve been on a long pause getting into the second one. I am also in the very early stages of a Wings Unseen sequel.

Are you reading anything interesting at the moment? If so, what is it?

Rebecca Gomez Farrell: Right now, I’m reading Between the World and Me by Ta-Nehisi Coates. It’s a long-form essay written to his son about coming to terms with his place in America as a black man, the forces that he’s had to reckon with to protect his body, and his eternal quest for understanding why. It’s about as American a story as you can get, and I think it’s essential reading.

Can you tell us a little about your first publishing experience?

Rebecca Gomez Farrell: It’s hard to remember what qualifies as my first publishing experience! I think the answer is a third-place contest win with the WOW! Women on Writing’s flash fiction contests. I was delighted they chose my “Last Complaint” as a finalist in the summer of 2009, just after I began writing as a career. The awards are small cash prizes, story publication online, and an interview—those all felt quite fancy my first time out! I recommend contests as a great way to get a confidence boost, but I probably wouldn’t enter one that cost more than $10.

How much of you or people you know do you think make it into the characters in your novel(s)?

Rebecca Gomez Farrell: I don’t subscribe to the advice to “write what you know,” especially as a writer of imaginary worlds! But aspects of my personality and worldview make it into my characters, as do aspects of friends, family, and random people I pass on the street. Including such details are necessary as a way to make characters relatable; the reader needs something that feels tangible for them to grasp onto. But I can’t point at any one character I’ve written and say, “Yes, that’s me.” Rather, from Wings Unseen, I can say Vesperi has my flirtation skills; Janto, my ability to nudge conversation where I want it to go; and Serra, my honey-colored hair.   

Can you tell us some of your latest news?

Rebecca Gomez Farrell: In addition to the launch of Wings Unseen, I have three new short stories available this year. “What Scattered in the Wind” appears in the Little Letters on the Skin anthology chapbook from Cleave: Bay Area Women Writers and the Liminal Center. It’s a horror story told with poetic prose that evokes a landscape of eternal torment for past mistakes. “Garbage” is a humorous story of alien invasion and the complicated feelings that arise from multiple waves of immigration; it appears in Through a Scanner Farkly: The 2017 Fark Fiction Collection, which benefits a children’s charity. “Treasure” is a fantasy fable that will appear this fall in the Dark Luminous Wings anthology from Pole to Pole Publishing. Additionally, my short story “Thlush-A-Lum,” which first appeared in PULP Literature Issue #5, has been picked up by the Centropic Oracle for audio production.

What are some of the pros and cons of self-publishing verses being published by a publisher in your opinion?

Rebecca Gomez Farrell: This is a question I get all the time, in part because going the traditional publication route is unusual at this point in the game! I chose to go with a traditional small press, Meerkat Press, because I didn’t want to be the sole person promoting Wings Unseen. Marketing is not my forte, and to successfully get a work to as many readers as possible, marketing is essential! Meerkat Press has done a wonderful job thus far. It’s also hard to overestimate the importance of having a publisher cover the costs of the editing process…and to give you that confidence of an advance and their willingness to invest in your work.

The primary pro of self-publishing is how much faster the process can go. I finished Wings Unseen in 2013 and began sending it out to publishing houses then. Over the next three years, I sent it to many publishers and agents and waited the interminably long periods of time to hear back on if they wanted to proceed to the full manuscript reading or they weren’t interested. Meerkat Press picked up the book in August 2016, and it’s been a year from then to publication…which is actually pretty speedy for most presses. So if an author wants their work out in the world as soon as possible, self-publishing is definitely the way to go. I just wouldn’t feel confident handling all aspects of publication myself, and let’s be honest, I love the validation of someone else believing in my work enough to take it through the publication process.

Random Quickies!

When do you prefer to read?

Rebecca Gomez Farrell: When I’m on a blanket or hammock in the sunshine. A breeze is helpful, as is a way to stop my cats from jumping on me.

Supernatural or Psych? (TV Shows)

Rebecca Gomez Farrell: Psych. I love that Supernatural has lasted this long, and I love aspects of its storytelling, but the humor and bond between Psych’s leads makes me happy to watch.

Favorite color?

Rebecca Gomez Farrell: Electric blue—this is the color of the sky at the end of twilight on a day spent thoroughly enjoying oneself outdoors.

Night or day?

Rebecca Gomez Farrell: Day. That said, I don’t rise for the early part of it! I am a night owl, through and through.

Dark Chocolate or Milk Chocolate?

Rebecca Gomez Farrell: Dark chocolate, no question! We’re living in a golden age of chocolate with so much access to so many quality bean-to-bar products. To dilute that glory with milk is to squander a fortune.

Wings Unseen
Rebecca Gomez Farrell
Published by: Meerkat Press
Publication date: August 22nd 2017
Genres: Fantasy, Young Adult

To end a civil war, Lansera’s King Turyn relinquished a quarter of his kingdom to create Medua, exiling all who would honor greed over valor to this new realm on the other side of the mountains. The Meduans and Lanserim have maintained an uneasy truce for two generations, but their ways of life are as compatible as oil and water.
When Vesperi, a Meduan noblewoman, kills a Lanserim spy with a lick of her silver flame, she hopes the powerful display of magic will convince her father to name her as his heir. She doesn’t know the act will draw the eye of the tyrannical Guj, Medua’s leader, or that the spy was the brother of Serrafina Gavenstone, the fiancèe of Turyn’s grandson, Prince Janto. As Janto sets out for an annual competition on the mysterious island of Braven, Serra accepts an invitation to study with the religious Brotherhood, hoping for somewhere to grieve her brother’s murder in peace. What she finds instead is a horror that threatens both countries, devouring all living things and leaving husks of skin in its wake.
To defeat it, Janto and Serra must learn to work together with the only person who possesses the magic that can: the beautiful Vesperi, whom no one knows murdered Serra’s brother. An ultimate rejection plunges Vesperi forward toward their shared destiny, with the powerful Guj on her heels and the menacing beating of unseen wings all about.
Readers of all ages will enjoy Wings Unseen, Rebecca Gomez Farrell’s first full-length novel. It is a fully-imagined epic fantasy with an unforgettable cast of characters.

Interview: Las Vegas Tales by Amber Malloy @authambermalloy

Please help me welcome author Amber Malloy to PNR & More! Read on below for your interview and more about Las Vegas Tales!

Hi! Would you tell us a little bit about yourself?

I’m a full moon avoider, cupcake-loving Zombie killer. Seriously, I hate Zombies.

*Do you have anything you would like to say to your readers?*

Thank you for your time. The world is a fast-moving place, and allowing yourself to take time to read a world I created is truly appreciated.

*Do you write an outline before starting a book or just write?*

Some of my fellow authors are pantsers, which means they just start writing by the seat of their pants. I, on the other hand, have to outline my story to make it happen.

*Which came first for you, the characters or the plot?*

It depends. Sometimes a plot surfaces and you figure out what type of personality would work in this script. Oftentimes, characters come first and the world weaves around them.

*What was the inspiration for this novel?*

I wondered about plausible Las Vegas hook ups. Not the trite ‘we don’t know each other and accidentally got married’ yawn.

*Can you tell us a few do’s and don’ts for aspiring authors?*

Don’t listen to anyone else, and don’t have your friends read your books. Do believe in yourself, and invest in a real editor before you send it off to a publisher.

Random Quickies!

*Favorite kind of chocolate?*

*Cats or dogs?*

*Do you read more than you write?*
Yes. I read more but I’m always writing.

*Hardback/Paperback or eReader?*

*Why do you like eReaders more?*
You don’t need a night light.

*Favorite color?*
Blue in all shades.

*Do you own a laptop or desktop computer?*

*If a laptop, what kind do you own and would you recommend it to other authors?*
I burn through laptops so fast I don’t have a favorite.

Guest Post &#Giveaway: the Divinity Bureau by Tessa Clare

What Roman and April Can Teach Us About Relationships

My book, “The Divinity Bureau,” comes out September 21st. It’s a dystopian romance about a forbidden love between a young activist and a government employee, set in a world where a government bureau decides who lives and who dies by random selection.
Roman and April have an interesting dynamic. April is the outspoken daughter of a politician. She’s bold, brash, and not afraid to take control of a situation. Roman, on the other hand, is her opposite. He’s an IT technician for The Divinity Bureau, a government agency that’s in charge of controlling overpopulation by deciding who lives and who dies. He’s sweet, intelligent, gentle – and he is absolutely head over heels in love with April.
I started writing The Divinity Bureau when I was nineteen years old, and it was based on what I knew about relationships. At the time, that knowledge was limited to romance books and one long-term relationship that ended in tears.
Yet while romance novels are famous for coming up with

Guest Post & #Giveaway: Interviewing for her Lover by Ellis O. Day @ellis_o_day

10 Things Reader's Would Be Surprised To Know About You

1. I have five dogs and five cats – all strays except one who I adopted from the pound. My boss swears that as soon as I have to put one of my pets down (due to sickness), the shelters toss another one in my path.

2. I’m the youngest of seven (yes, I’m Catholic). My brothers and sisters, who I love dearly, tortured me a lot as a child. My brothers taught me to spell my name. My name is Linda Sue and they taught me that you spelled it L-E-M-O-N H-E-A-D.

3. I have never been married.

4. I constantly write stories and dialogue in my head.

5. I get up in the middle of the night to exercise. I won’t get up early to do it because I hate getting up to an alarm, but I will do it if I can go back to be.

6. I’m brutally honest with myself and try and help my family be the same way. If you can identify your faults – change them or accept them and move on.

7. I’m a member of Mensa (or I was. I stopped paying their dues).

Sarah wants a lover, but she wants one on her terms.  She doesn’t have time to date and picking a guy up at a bar is not only dangerous but it doesn’t guarantee he’ll let her act out her fantasies.  Then she hears about La Petite Morte Club—a place for willing males and females to meet with rules and contracts so that all parties leave satisfied.

She signs up with the club and starts the process of finding the man who’ll be her lover for six nights.  Six nights of fantasy—his and hers. Six nights of sex and then they’re done.  Simple, uncomplicated and fun, but she doesn’t count on Nick’s ability to make her desire everything he has to offer and more.


Sarah opened the door and walked into the room, trying to stay balanced on these stupid heels.  Men wouldn’t find them so attractive if they had to wear them.  The room was dark except for one light highlighting a small platform.  That was for her.  She stepped up onto the small stage.  The room was silent but they were there, above her, hidden behind the one-way mirrors, watching her, deciding if they wanted to take the next step—to eventually take her. 
She stared into the blackness of the room.  It wasn’t huge but its emptiness made it seem vast.  She glanced upward, the light making her squint and she quickly stared back into the darkness.  This was arranged for them to see her.  That was it.  She’d get no glimpse of them yet.  She’d seen their pictures, chosen

Excerpt & #Giveaway: Rising Tide: Dark Innocence by Claudette Melanson

It was too late then… He was ringing the doorbell. He looked so much braver than I felt. I could see the anger that had crept back into him in the hard set of his lips, the flash in his dark eyes.
Caelyn had torn the door open immediately, anxiety all over her face. She looked at Ron, dumbfounded. She must have then caught sight of some part of me, because she instantly peered around his shoulder to find me standing meekly behind him, clad only in a boy’s shirt that just barely cleared my hips.
“Maura?! What the…” Her eyes fairly popped with dismayed astonishment.
“Hi, Mom.” What an asinine thing to say. I should have at least started with “I’m okay.”
Caelyn just stood there with her mouth hanging open. I felt the fear turn over, like a living thing in my stomach. How was I going to survive our confrontation? How could I even begin to explain everything that had happened that night?
Luckily, I had Ron. “Hi, um, Ms. DeLuca.” He started out sounding very shy, but as my mother’s brows furrowed closer together, he put a stronger edge to his voice. “I came to bring Maura home.” She was still scowling.
“Um…I’m Ron by the way.” He put his hand out to her. She ignored that entirely.
My mother’s glare was venomous. “Maura! Get in the house this instant!”
Oh boy… She thought Ron was at fault for whatever imagined atrocities were going through her brain right at the moment.
“Mom!” I was desperate to put everything right, despite how much trouble I knew I’d be in. “You have it all wrong!”
“I said GET IN THE HOUSE!” she screamed at me, absolute fury flying from her eyes. I’d never seen her so angry before, and I was terrified. “Do I need to ask you again?”
“N-n-no ma’am,” I stuttered. I hurried past Ron, but not without looking up at him with apology in my eyes. I felt horrible for his being put in the middle, just because he’d happened to save my life.
Once inside, I steeled myself for another attempt at speaking to my mother. “Mom, will you please just let me…”
“Don’t say anything, Maura.” Her voice shook. “Do you have any idea what you’ve put me through tonight?”
I was confused then. Did she want me to stay quiet or answer her question?
Ron saved me again. “I think I can explain.” He took a tentative step onto the living room carpet.
I didn’t like the way Caelyn’s head snapped around when she looked at him. “What was your name again?” she asked viciously.
I saw him swallow hard as he answered, “Ron.”
She turned on him then. “Well, Ron!” It sounded like she’d chewed on his name before spitting the one syllable out. “Do you mind telling me why it is you’re out with my daughter when she’s supposed to be with Katie Parker?  And after you’ve answered that, I’d really love to know why you would bring her home wearing only that!!” She pointed the index finger of her shaking hand at me, standing on the plush blue carpet next to our couch, holding onto its arm for support, my knees knocking together.
Ron went a little pale… I couldn’t stand to see my hero wrongly accused.

“Mom! Listen to me! If-if it weren’t for him, for Ron…Mom, I’d be dead right now!” I shouted all the words out quickly before she had a chance to silence me again.

Could Maura's life get any worse? ...turns out it most certainly can.

Isolated and sheltered by her lonely mother, Maura's never been able to make friends. She seems to drive her classmates away—except for the odd times they pay enough attention to torture her—but she doesn’t understand why. Maura considers herself to be a freak of nature, with her unusually pale skin and an aversion to the sun that renders her violently nauseous. Her belief is only worsened by the fact that almost everyone around her keeps their distance.

Even her own father deserted her before she was born, leaving Maura alone with her emotionally distant mother, Caelyn. Even though Maura is desperate for answers about her unknown parent, Caelyn remains heartbroken and her daughter can’t bring herself to reopen her mother’s wounds. Or is there a more sinister reason Caelyn refuses to utter a word about her long-lost love?

When a cruel prank nearly claims Maura’s life, one of her classmates, Ron, rushes to her rescue. Darkly handsome & mysteriously accepting, Ron doesn’t seem to want to stay away, but Maura is reluctant to get too close, since her mother has announced she’s moving the two of them to Vancouver…nearly 3,000 miles away from their hometown of Indiana, Pennsylvania.

If life wasn’t already challenging enough, Maura begins to experience bizarre, physical changes her mother seems hell bent on ignoring, compelling Maura to fear for her own life. Vicious nightmares, blood cravings, failing health and the heart-shattering loss of Ron—as well as the discovery of a tangled web of her own mother's lies—become obstacles in Maura's desperate quest for the unfathomable truth she was never prepared to uncover.
