Life changing event is an understatement.
Seventeen-year-old Rylee Baker’s whole life has been filled with half-truths. She knows her mother was murdered, but not why. She has never met her mother’s family and has very little contact with people of her own race.
Everything changes when her Capissian powers wake up and her father moves them to the small town of Narmik Springs, hidden in the Blue Ridge Mountains. She’s pulled into a culture she knows little about and a civil war threatening to spill over into the human world.
If that isn’t bad enough, someone wants her dead.
It’s up to Reed, Sawyer, Cal, Kent, and Dalton to help her control her growing powers and ensure she lives long enough to fulfill an ancient prophecy.
Tomorrow is the day! That means this is your last teaser. 😀
What seemed like several minutes passed before he spoke. “Lucia Crane is my aunt. She killed my mother because she joined the Order to fight against her.”
Everything clicked into place. My dad’s concern about Dalton being on board. The dark energy Dalton had.
I pulled back and stared into his midnight-blue eyes. Framing his face with my hands, I asked, “What are your powers?”
“Noxrego, aquakinesis, and telepathy.”
Noxrego was the power to control shadows and darkness. It was a dark power from the Crane bloodline—Lucifer’s bloodline. That was the dark power I felt when near him.
TWO more days. I’m getting nervous. 😀
Here’s today’s teaser…
The sun was starting to set, casting an orange and peach glow through the clouds and behind the mountains. “It’s beautiful.”
“The best view in the apartment.” Sawyer’s soft tone surprised me.
I met his gaze and studied him for a moment. When I first saw him at the school, he appeared pissed, like he’d rather have acid dropped in his eyes than be there. Now, he seemed relaxed, but still on edge. Before I could call him on it, Cal came out and leaned against me.
I smiled at him. Cal was easy to get used to. His energy was calming. Leaning back against him, I asked, “Do all of you live here?”
THREE more days until release day. Are you ready?
Here’s another teaser for you…
My soul and my magic recognized them, called out to them.
They were my soulmates.
I sagged into Cal, resting my forehead to his. “I don’t understand how any of this could work.”
Cal stood, lifted me in his arms, and then sat in the chair, placing me in his lap. “Neither do we. Even though we’ve known our mate would come to us. We’re not prepared for it to be you.”
Visions of Pain, the first in my NA serial, Capissian Order, releases on Friday (10/27). I’m super excited about the release. I celebrating I’ll be posting teasers all week.
Today’s teaser is right after Cal helped Rylee create mental shields to block her psychometry power.
Cal withdrew from my mind and we were back in the apartment’s living room. He smiled at me, both his hands framing my face. Before I realized what I was doing, I lifted my hands to cover his. A flash lit up his brown eyes right before they lowered to my lips.
My heart froze for a moment before pounding in my ears. What would it feel like to kiss him? Especially since my gift was locked away. I leaned in a fraction of an inch.
The sound of the kitchen door opening broke whatever trance or moment we shared. My cheeks heated and I sat back into the sofa just as Tyler and Drew came in with bags of fast food in their arms.
Cal jerked to a stand and left the room. My gaze followed him as he disappeared down the hallway.
“What’s going on?”
