By the end of the day my best friends will all be dead….

I’m not very interesting. Most people just leave me alone. I’m poor and on my own more than I’m not.

Lately, however, I’ve caught the attention of five guys who I never expected to know. Rowan. Ace. Tanner. Griffin. Caesar. They are rich. Powerful. Gorgeous. Sometimes they set things on fire. And, they’re loaded with secrets they won’t tell me.
I think I want to know what they’re hiding. I’m wrong.

Once they share their truths with me, I’ll never be the same. It turns out, everyone is a servant of the darkness, whether they know it or not.

*The reader should be aware this is book 1 of 3. The happy ending comes with book 3. The heroine is stronger than she knows, the guys filled with depths they can’t imagine, and the heat will build from sweet in this novel to very intense by book 3. Please read accordingly. You have been warned.*

This is a new series and from the first page I was hooked.

Maci works hard and studies in the library after school before heading to work. On this particular day five of the richest, most powerful, gorgeous guys in the school are there as well. Rowan, Ace, Tanner, Griffin and Caesar being loud and when Griffin throws a book at Tanner. Unable to help herself Maci tells them to stop. As a result of this Rowan apologizes but then they all join her at her table. Little does she know this encounter will change her life.

Although she’s only sixteen her mother frequently disappears, other times she has men at the trailer with her. Maci has managed not to be noticed most of the time and locks herself in her room. She only has one more year and with meticulous saving she was leaving this town forever. At least that was her plan.

Now this book we learn the guys have a big secret they were trying to keep from her, unfortunately circumstances change, and she finds out they are going to be vampires, soon.

There is an interesting occurrence of her sleepwalking and an encounter with ‘the betrayer’. She doesn’t remember this and we as the readers get to know it’s happened many times before.

This is the beginning of a love story that is both dark and satisfying in spite of or because of the relationships between Maci and her mother, and the guys and their fathers.

I laughed, cried, screamed and cried some more as this book touches my heart and makes me angry on Maci’s behalf. I really can’t wait for the next book, I have a feeling things are going to get very interesting, very quickly.

5 Contented Purrs for Rebecca!

Rebecca Royce Rebecca Royce

As a teenager, I would hide in my room to read my favorite romance novels when I was supposed to be doing my homework. I hope, these days, that my parents think it was worth it.

I am the mother of three adorable boys and I am fortunate to be married to my best friend. I live in Austin Texas where I am determined to eat all the barbecue in town.

I am in love with science fiction, fantasy, and the paranormal and try to use all of these elements in my writing. I’ve been told I’m a little bloodthirsty so I hope that when you read my work you’ll enjoy the action packed ride that always ends in romance. I love to write series because I love to see characters develop over time and it always makes me happy to see my favorite characters make guest appearances in other books.

In my world anything is possible, anything can happen, and you should suspect that it will.

I’d love to hear from you!
