Synopsis

Eighteen-year-old Savanah Parry just moved three thousand miles across state to escape. The memories…the whispers…the pain.

Chastity Falls Academy is supposed to be her fresh start; her salvation. And when Ana meets mysterious Jackson, she begins to think it is. She hasn’t smiled in almost sixteen months; not since the night her life changed forever, and despite her guilt…her loyalty, Ana can’t deny that Jackson is breathing life back into her. With Jackson by her side, Ana wants to believe she can heal and move on. But she isn’t the only one living a lie, and the small private Academy has secrets of its own. All is not what it seems, and Ana is about to find herself in a tangled web of lies; fighting for survival, again.

Loyalties will be tested, lies will be told. Welcome to Chastity Falls.

excerpt

He glanced down at me, cradled in his arms like a baby, and smiled. “Well, Savanah Parry, you’re home.” Dropping me to the floor, he used the second key card on the small O-ring to open the door. I managed to balance on the wall enough to flick the switch, and then hop to the bed.

“Here, let me take a proper look.” Jackson dropped down in front of me, cradling my foot in his hands. “Ouch, you’ve sprained it pretty bad. You need to rest and elevate it. Do you have a towel?”

I pointed toward the small bathroom.

Two minutes later, Jackson came out with two towels. He threw the dry one at me and I started toweling off my hair. The second was damp and rolled up. “It’s not ice, but it should help with the swelling. Hmm, you need help changing?” His eyes flickered back to my chest and I coughed. “Just hand me those pants off of the back of the chair, and that tank?” I pointed to the desk.

He collected them up and handed them to me. Our fingers brushed, sending tiny sparks shooting through my skin. “Yeah, so umm, I’ll be right over here. Not looking,” he said, more to himself than me, as he turned away.

I scooted back on the bed, trying to peel the wet shirt off my body. I managed to wiggle free and yanked the clean tank over my head. My jeans were a different matter. They clung to me like a second skin and as I tried to inch them down my legs, my ankle burned. “Damn, that hurts.”

“You okay back there?”

“Yeah. You can turn around now.” I fastened the tie on the slouchy pants and slunk back into the pillows.

Jackson approached the bed, a strained look on his face, as his eyes raked over me. He wrapped the wet towel round my ankle, with enough pressure that I could feel it, but not enough it hurt, and then he grabbed one of the redundant pillows and placed it underneath my lower leg. “There, rest, ice, compression and elevate. You’ll be as good as new by tomorrow. So, anyway what were you doing out there?” He left my side and went to sit in the desk chair.

“The party at Dead Man’s Cove, remember.” The one you tried to talk me out of.

His eyes locked on mine and his jaw tensed. I couldn’t decipher what they were trying to say, but he seemed shocked by my omission.

“It wasn’t really my kind of scene, so I left… look how well that worked out for me.”

He rose from the chair and stalked toward me. I pressed back into the headboard, unsure of what to expect when he reached me. My heart pounded as his gaze seared into me and his fingers reached for my soggy hair, and brushed it out of my eyes. “I’d better go.”

My eyes fluttered shut and I gulped. His touch had been so gentle, yet I’d felt it all the way to my soul. “Okay. Th-thanks.”

His fingers lingered on my cheek and he looked like a guy carrying the weight of the world, like he wanted to say more, but couldn’t find the words. And then he pulled back, andmy skin felt instantly cold at the loss of his touch. Jackson flicked the light switch as he reached the door, plummeting the room into darkness. The only light was the soft glow from the floodlight outside the emergency stairwell, allowing me to just make out his silhouette. The strained tick in his jaw and the lines creasing his brow. He almost looked pained.

I waited for him to leave. But as he turned the doorknob and half stepped out of the room, he glanced back at the last minute. “Ana, you should stay away from me.” It came out barely a whisper.

But I heard it.

Then he disappeared into the corridor.

WLK synopsis

There Are No Coincidences…
The last bachelor in a Force of elite Dragon Guardsmen, Aaron O’Brien decided long ago that single was the only way to be. Mates and children and happily ever after were for his brethren. He alone has accepted the responsibility of stopping the traitor and restoring peace to his clan. Unfortunately, Fate didn’t get the message.

The Universe Does Not Make Mistakes…
Intelligent, determined and level-headed, Dr. Charlene Gallagher has always found comfort in logic and reason. When the inexpiable jumps up and smacks her in the face will Charlie cling to her old beliefs or let go and find answers in the one man that clouds her judgment and ignites her passion?

Fate Will Not Be Denied
Nobody said it was going to be easy. The fight will be real. It will take compromise and a love created by the Universe. Only Charlie can take the leap of faith and only for her dragon…

 

WLK excerpt

“Oh, you know Lance, he would ask for a repeat performance.” Samantha, her best friend since forever, chuckled.

But that was the problem…

Charlie didn’t know Lance, at least not like she thought she did. And what hurt worse was that she felt like she didn’t know Sam anymore either. There had been a time when they’d shared everything. A time when the longest they could go without talking was twenty-four hours and only then there was a hurricane involved.

The guy who said ‘Life changes in the blink of an eye’ definitely knew what he was talking about. One minute Charlie had been kissing the sexiest men she’d ever met and the next she had been looking at a dragon…a freakin’ dragon.

Of course Aaron had told her to go back to the party before he sped away, but Dr. Charlene Gallagher did nottake orders. So, she had followed. Running in heels across the forest floor, Charlie had heard someone in distress. The daughter of a policeman and a trained doctor, she had rushed headlong into the clearing.

It had taken her brain a second to process what she saw. There stood Sam, alongside her new family, looking at a mythical creature. Was it still considered mythical if she’d seen it with her own eyes? That was a question she had never gotten answered.

Too much tequila…think about it tomorrow.

Charlie had done the only thing she could. She’d run…far and fast…straight to her car. Then she’d driven like Danica Patrick to her condo. Once inside with all four locks secured and the curtains drawn, she had taken her first real breath. The flood gates opened and for the next twelve hours she alternated between screaming, crying and cursing.

The sun had risen as she starred out her bedroom window, too drained to move. Sleep finally came and so did the dreams. Fortunately, her cell phone rang three hours later. Unfortunately, Sam’s name came across the display. Charlie hit ignore.

And then she hit ignore every hour on the hour for the next two days.
