Excerpt One

            Something wrapped around the collar of Sophie’s jacket and lifted her easily into the air.
             Cairo held her and Lilli up, one in each hand, like they were both a sack of feathers.  Her unblinking eyes settled on Sophie.  “You’re so powerful.  How does a human become this way?”
            Out of the corner of her eye, Sophie saw Morgan struggle to pick Katie up.  When she realized that wouldn’t work, Morgan dragged her gently out of the way.       
            Sophie balled up her fist and swung. 
            Cairo dodged it effortlessly.  Her musical laugh grated on Sophie’s nerves.   “You can’t possibly think it’d be that easy?”   Cairo tilted her head to the side and watched the brightness of color surrounding Sophie.  No longer in control over her actions, she released Lilli to concentrate fully on the light.  “You have such an aura.  So much light.  I miss that, you know.  I may keep you for myself.”
            Tristan moved from Augustus to two of Cairo’s entourage. 
             A sudden waft of heat hit them.  Cairo cried out.
            Sophie hit the dirt and rolled.  The air pushed out of her lungs and she coughed.  When she turned on her back and lifted herself on her elbows, she gasped.
            Flames covered Cairo.  Her glowing skin blistered.
            Aidan forced more heat into the fire that engulfed her.

Excerpt Two

“Finally.  I thought you’d never wake up.”
            The voice whispered like death over Sophie’s senses.  Her heart stuttered when she turned on the bunk and looked out.  Akeldama sat in a chair just outside her cell.  Perfect, pale legs peeked out from a sleek red dress.
            The demon’s skin was so pale, Sophie wondered if the person she wore had been dead for days.  Blue veins crawled across the skin like highways, all meeting in the center of her chest.
            “That’s a little different than the mommy-and-me act.”  Sophie tried to keep her voice from shaking.  Her fear was so sharp she could almost taste it.
            Akeldama laughed and Sophie knew she heard Death in the sound.  It froze her insides.  She tried to keep a calm face.  “Oh, I have a whole host of disguises.  It works to not look the same every time I kill someone.”
            Instantly Todd’s face, his smile, shot through Sophie’s mind.  Her body tensed against the cold wall.  Words, full of rage, formed but she couldn’t force them out.  Instead, she glared across the cell.
            The malevolence thickened.  It reached out to Sophie and gripped her hard.  The breath disappeared from her lungs as she was dragged from the bed.  She hit the floor of the cell hard enough to knock her teeth together.  Before she managed to inhale, Akeldama’s power tightened and hauled her to the bars.  

Author Bio
I'm a multitasking mom of four.  When not writing/doing laundry/changing diapers, I like to catch up on episodes of Supernatural and Castle.  If you can't find me in front of the computer, I'm most likely watching my DVR.

​I've been writing since the first grade, where I wrote a one page story titled "If I was an Indian".  My warrior husband was going to be the best hunter, I was going to live in the best teepee and apparently, I was having an affair with the Chief.  Racy, I know.

​Of the things I'm addicted to sweet tea, movies, and books top the list.  My favorite authors include Nora Roberts, Lauren Kate, Kresley Cole, and Gena Showalter.  Few of many I love.

​Thanks so much for reading!

Sam :)
