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.
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?”
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?”
