Thousands of years ago, the Skröm split off from the Light Clans and became Dark. Their greed for blood consumed them. Their once orange eyes bled to red, and they became one of the demons of legend. And when they die, they do not rest. They haunt. They take. They devour. Their souls become Shadows. Darkness. Death.
Alexia Maria Garda-Martinez was born a monster. Red hair. Red eyes. Pale skin. And nowhere to call home. But after years of foster care and state homes, she has finally found her niche. A family. A promising career. And a life that’s fulfilling.
Devon Waters ran from his hometown of Montville, New York fifteen years ago, and he found more than he bargained for. Reunited with his twin brother, a detective in the local police department, Devon doesn’t plan on running again.
When a brutal, ritualistic murder happens right in their little college town, Alexia and Devon are pulled into a world of good versus evil that will have them both questioning who they are. The Skröm and the Shadows are closing in, and Alexia and Devon must join forces to stop the darkness at all costs.
Will Alexia be able to fight her darker instincts, or will the devil inside of her draw her into its seductive web?
☆¸.•*¨*★☆About the Author☆★*¨*•.¸☆
T. spends most of her days teaching college-aged kids how to practice proper grammar and how to write a paragraph. Her passion, though, lies in Literature and she loves instilling her love of writing, of words, and of creative adventures in the future leaders of America (yikes!).
T. writes stories in her wee apartment with a tortoise her nephew calls Yoda, but who she has secretly renamed Hagrid (because Harry Potter is way cool). She’s traveled all over but still needs to hit all seven continents (and thinking maybe six will do).
In each story she writes, she tries to capture the heart of the characters and the relationships. Some people would say that the story line is the most important. Others would say the grammar. But T. believes that a truly good story has, first and foremost, complex characters and powerful relationships. She writes Urban Fantasy/PNR and really loves the drama and the epic moments that fantasy brings about. Who doesn’t love a good dramatic moment or an even better sex or fight scene?
T. lives in Western Mass, is hoping to one day build a log cabin home in the mountains, is still searching for her own Bear of a Mountain man, and watches Once Upon a Time and Nicolas Sparks movies when she needs to remind herself that fairy tales really do exist.
