Some Changes Coming

Some changes are coming to The Vampires of Linbridge Series.

Since I've been editing and updating my heart out, I decided that this series needed some new covers. I loved the roses but when I did the latest cover for book three I just couldn't get it right. I took a step back and realized that they weren't my best. Anyway, long story short, I stayed up late to search through hundreds of photos until I finally found the perfect one. It was luck that this photo wasn't the only one of the model. Once I did the cover for Bitten, I fell in love. These new covers blow the old ones out of the water. I am so excited to share them with you. I've also chosen the title for book three. It's going to be called Eternal!!

Now that that is out of the way here they are in all of their glory.

 



The main books in the series are not the only ones getting a change. Erik's book and Ivan's are also going to be a bit different. Check them out.



So, what do you think? Do you like the new covers?

Happy Reading!!

Wren is a typical, everyday, girl, at least that’s what she believes. What she doesn’t know is that she’s part of a much bigger picture. She’s about to find out and it will change everything she’s ever known.
When a new guy shows up at school, she can’t help but feel connected to him. It’s a connection she has to fight and keep secret from her boyfriend, Jake.
Just when her life begins coming together, it comes unraveled. Some secrets are hard to keep, but others aren’t meant to be kept.
Wren discovers that she’s a descendant of the one and only Little Red Riding Hood.
The second everything comes out into the open Wren’s world changes drastically. She learns that Jake is a hunter, along with their friend Noah. Her other close friend, Aiden, is a descendant of Van Helsing, and Liam…Liam is the wolf from all of the stories she’s been told about.
The only difference is that Liam isn’t a big bad wolf.
No, that’s not how Wren’s story goes. In fact, it’s far from it. Instead of being afraid of Liam, Wren is drawn to him. They share a deep connection, but that’s all thanks to the curse they share. It’s a curse that had destroyed her mother’s love, her grandmother’s love, and the many descendants that came before her. The curse was meant to destroy her happiness.
Thankfully the curse can be broken. It’s not an easy task though, and with danger lurking around every corner it makes it nearly impossible. Add the fact that Wren can’t tell Liam and Jake how to break the curse and it makes it that much more difficult.
Fortunately, fate takes the situation into its own hands.
They are saved but not without a price.
Loved ones will die. Wren’s faith will be tested, and her heart will be broken.
Only the one that she truly loves will save her in the end.

Snow is a special girl with a special gift. She’s a Winter Fae, and a princess, but she doesn’t know that yet. Being raised in the human world with her best friend Tucker and her grandmother has shielded her from reality. They have kept her true identity hidden from her to keep her safe.
Snow had been safely hidden, until now. A Summer Fae has uncovered their secret, and he’s come to take her to the Fae world.
Everything Snow has known changes in an instant when she’s taken through a portal. The Fae world is much harsher than the Human world that she had become comfortable with. She’s got a lot to learn, and quickly. The first thing she learns is that Winter Fae and Summer Fae don’t mix. Unfortunately, that doesn’t stop her from getting attached to the very Fae that had kidnapped her.
Forest, her captor, fights against the connection that seems to be pulling Snow and him together. When Snow pushes to get closer his defenses come crashing down. For Snow, everything seemed to be coming together. She was finding her place in this world. That joy is short-lived when her world once again becomes unraveled.
What Forest and Snow feel can never be, she has to return to her kingdom and he has to flee.
Soon Snow finds herself safely at home with her father, the King. Snow settles into her new role as Princess, but that doesn’t erase what she felt for the Summer Fae. Her heart longs for him and then breaks when unexpected news reaches her of his untimely demise.
She finds herself finding comfort in a set of familiar arms, Everest, a half-breed who reminds her of everything that she lost. He mends her heart while keeping her safe.
That doesn’t stop danger from finding Snow.
No matter what she does her world keeps falling apart around her. Every decision she makes places her on different paths to her future, but which is the right one to follow.
Snow must decide which path to take or risk it all. Will fate intervene or will someone else decide for her? Will love be able to triumph? Only the future knows.

Harper is a young girl who grew up in a special town, a town called Linbridge. What’s so special about this town? Well, it might be the simple fact that most of its residents are vampires. They aren’t the bloodthirsty type though. They only want to live in peaceful harmony with the humans surrounding them. Of course, no one dares to defy the rules that the vampires have placed over the town.
When Harper’s eighteenth birthday comes, it comes with the chance to become a protected or an unclaimed. The protected are well taken care of by their vampire protectors while the unclaimed are fair game for whatever goes bump in the night.
A week before her birthday her current protector, Finnick, rejects his claim to continue being her protector. Harper’s whole world changes in an instant, but it’s not all bad. She meets a few new friends. There’s a connection she has with them, one that she can’t exactly explain. Along with the new friends, she is reunited with an old one, Alex. He’s one of the unclaimed.
Just when things seem to be at their best, everything once again crumbles down around Harper. Lies are uncovered, and some truths are revealed. There’s a bigger picture to Harper’s connection with her newest friends. They aren’t what they seem. In fact, they aren’t even human. They’re vampires, part of a vampire clan to be precise and they hunt down other vampires who break the laws of their kind.
Harper soon falls for one of the clan members, but it all comes unraveled with the sudden appearance of an old flame. Clara has held the clan's hearts for centuries.
Will Clara’s past with the clan destroy everything Harper has or will another threat take her life away? Can love prevail or will it only destroy her more?
Harper may run, but she won’t be able to hide forever.

Tuesday Teaser

I released the first three chapters of this story in the end of Ivan's book, from The Vampires of Linbridge, but I decided to rewrite it from the start. Here's a sample from one of the new chapters. I've gone back to the beginning when Ava first gets turned. It's still a bit rough so bear with me. I'm getting a lot of progress done with this story and I can't wait to share more of it with you.

Enjoy!!

My heart gets lodged in my throat as I turn down the dark road that would take me home. It was the fastest way to go but it took me through a small forest that separated one side of the town from the other.
As I reach the trees the car chugs and the lights flash.
I curse and silently plead for it to behave itself.
My luck only gets worse as it chugs again and then stalls. I manage to pull off to the side of the road before I whimper softly.
I lock my doors and then reach into my pocket to grab my phone.
I pull it out and curse my luck again. The screen was black. It was dead which meant I had no way to contact anyone.
A loud howl cuts through the silence of the night and I shiver in fear.
“This cannot possibly get worse.” I mutter as I stare out the windshield.
After a few moments a set of headlights light up my car before they pull in behind me. I glance back nervously as someone exits the car.
They walk up to my window and then knock on it.
I roll it down a little bit.
“Do you need help?” The young man asks with an easy grin.
“My car won’t start and my phone is dead. If you could let me use your phone to make a call that’s all I’d need.” I reply.
“I’m sorry. I don’t actually have a phone.” He answers.
“I could give you a ride home if you’d like.” He then insists. “A pretty girl like you shouldn’t be out here all alone.”
“I’d rather not leave my car.” I reply.
He nods and then glances down the road before turning his attention back towards me.
“You could have made this easy for me.” He bites out as his eyes turn red.
I rush to roll up my window but before I can get it up he smashes his hand through the glass. I scream in terror as he reaches inside for me.
Somehow I manage to slip out of my seatbelt before I exit the other side of the car.
Tears fill my eyes as I begin running as fast as my feet could carry me.
It’s useless.
I skid to a stop as the vampire appears in front of me.
“Don’t be like that. I just want a taste. I won’t hurt you.” He promises.
“Yeah, like I’m going to believe that. You just punched out my window.” I snap while I step back away from him as he moves forward.
“You ticked me off.” He growls.
A devilish smirk spreads across his lips as he stalks closer. “Just one bite and this will be all over. You can go home and pretend it never happened.”
“No.” I reply weakly.
“Too bad…” He replies before he suddenly grabs me in his arms.
A scream falls from my lips as he bites into my neck savagely.

Since I've been working on the next book in The Onyx Wolves Series I've decided to give you a teaser from Brave, Book 4. Enjoy!

“We need to figure out what we’re going to do with Blue and Harley.” Jake stresses as he walks into the kitchen were the rest of us were eating breakfast. “We can’t keep them locked in the basement forever.”
Each of us was exhausted thanks to Harley’s constant screaming. We hadn’t had a good night’s sleep in three days.
My temper was reaching its limit.
I couldn’t take much more; my wolf couldn’t take it much longer either.
“Harley can stay down there until she takes her last breath as far as I care.” I bite out a bit harshly.
“Parker…” Rowan breathes out.
“I could take her to my father if you’d rather not have her here. My father is known for his treatment of prisoners. He’s ruthless and cruel until he gets the answers he needs.” Jake suggests.
“Take her.” I breathe out without hesitating.
Jake snorts and then turns his attention towards Rowan.
After a few moments Rowan sighs. “Do you think your father could get any more information out of her than we have?”
Jake shrugs. “It’s worth a try. He might not be able to but at least you guys won’t have to listen to her another day. My father has a place where she can scream all she wants and not a soul will hear her.”
Rowan glances around the room before nodding his head. “Then take her.”
I swear everyone breathes out a sigh of relief.
“Alright, I’ll take her as soon as I eat some breakfast.” Jake announces.
“When is London coming?” I ask, changing the subject slightly.
“He called earlier and said that he would be here this afternoon.” Dillon answers around a mouthful of bacon.
“Good.” I breathe out.
 Without warning Harley begins screaming. Everyone groans in response, even Blue from his spot in the room next to her.
“Shut up, woman.” He yells in attempt to get her to stop.
Unfortunately, it doesn’t help.
“Do you have to eat breakfast, Jake?” Dillon groans dramatically.
Jake chuckles lightly until he glances around the room at the rest of us who were not amused in the slightest. We wanted Harley gone as soon as possible.
“I’ll eat quickly.” He insists.
