Spotlight on Author Kelley Grealis





Allison Carmichael wakes from a car wreck with no memory of the past three years.  She doesn’t recall her husband’s death or how she alienated her friends, and she definitely doesn’t remember anything about her new boyfriend Vincent Drake – a charismatic man with a penchant for rare and unique possessions.  In fact, the only things familiar to Allison are her seemingly common ailments – insomnia, lack of appetite, erratic body temperature – which have gone undiagnosed and are worsening.

But Vincent knows exactly who, and what, Allison is – a mortal descendant of the first vampire.  He is a vampire who has watched over Allison and her ancestors since the biblical times of Cain and Abel ensuring their secret is kept.  Once he realizes Allison’s symptoms are accelerating and transforming her, he’ll stop at nothing to have her.

Allison discovers that she is a descendant and the first of her kind to exhibit signs of vampirism.  She must decide between risking her mortal death if she cannot control her symptoms or fully transforming into a vampire and damning her soul for eternity.  A decision made even more difficult when Allison discovers that Vincent has manipulated her life, and everyone in it, so that he can have the one thing no one else in the world has – the first descendant-turned-vampire.

THE DESCENDANT – A Vampire Tale of Biblical Proportions

Spotlight on Cyndi Harris and her new book, Hell Bound Angel



Synopsis:

Hybrid demon, Lucien, never really had much to live for. Since birth, Lucien had been trained to believe that he was only good for one thing.

Killing.

That was, until he gave it up. 

Being born and bred in Hell, he had nothing to look forward to but his dreams. There lied his ideal violet eyed woman, who performed anything his erotic mind could come up with. That was until his boss demands he goes to Earth to bring back a ruthless demon hell bent on destroying the world. Given only three days to complete the task, Lucien is sent back to Earth only to land smack dab in the middle of a battle between the very demon he is sent to drag back to Hell, and the woman he only thought existed in his dreams.

Athena, a Guardian Angel trained to be a Demon Assassin, wanted to kill Lucien the moment he ruined her shot at killing the ruthless demon she’d been tracking since the moment she’d been sent to Earth. The only thing that stopped her was the fact that Lucien had thrown himself in the way, taking a bullet that was meant for her. Not only saving her life, but leaving her totally and utterly confused.

As battle lines get drawn between Heaven and Hell, and passions run high between Lucien and Athena, will they find means to complete each task while fighting their undeniable lust for each other? Or will being together and losing everything mean more than anything else?

Excerpt:

“Morals don’t really apply on things like you.” She ground out, and he shot to his feet furiously and he almost got a bullet for his vast movement.
Bawling his fist at his side, he stared into her violet eyes. Rage filled his and she saw that she’d struck a nerve. For some reason he seemed to take offense every time she insulted the demon race. Wasn’t like a demon to care, they usually gleamed at the harsh words thrown their way.
“I’m not a thing.” He said through clenched teeth.
He’d gone through centuries of bashing and there was no way he was gonna stand for it right now. Glaring at her intently, he swallowed his fury and studied her instead. She was the exact replica of the girl he’d constantly dreamed of as of late and that was eerie to say the least. He had to find out who or what she was.

Excerpt
That’s when I saw my face on the TV. It was my high school picture from four years ago. My face was fuller since I had lost 25 pounds this year from spending some of my spare time on a recreational soccer team but overall, I looked the same. There was no way I could fool myself into thinking it wasn’t me on the television screen. Next to the picture were the stats that once belonged to my physical self. The conservative looking reporter with his perfectly brushed come-over and bright blue eyes said I was 5’9, 145 pounds, black curly hair, dark skin, hazel eyes. My body shuttered from crying with no tears. It was a pathetic scene (which I was glad no one could see) but I cried harder knowing there was really no relief from this terrible pain. In life, tears were a way of watching emotional pain flee from the body, but now they were stuffed deep down inside of me somewhere and bottled up with a cork. I couldn’t hear what was being said on the TV and really didn’t want to. My parents must have gone to the police and said I was missing. I disappeared just in time to make the 11 O’clock news; I’m sure my killer was at home enjoying this. Exploding in anger, I punched the outside wall that faced the street. The couple sitting side by side on the couch shivered and moved apart. They felt me! “Hello!” I screamed at the top of my lungs. They didn’t budge anymore, but for a moment they did feel me. There was no hole in the wall, but they must have heard when the punch landed. For a short time, I was a part of the normal world again.
