Kay’s journey of a lifetime started in the woods outside of Asheville, North Carolina. It was there that the 17 year old met a beautiful man along with a monster. The chance encounter led her to an unbelievable world that shouldn’t exist; a place where myths and fairy tales were real, and in some cases, deadly. Kay knew she would have to brave this new world if she hoped to find a cure for her terminal cancer.
With a strange yet beautiful cast of characters that she would meet along the way, Kay uncovered truths that would change her life forever. However, before it was all over, it would become clear that Kay wasn’t the only one with problems.
Yet another 17 year old young woman was fighting for her freedom and her life.Kira had lived in a magical world that Kay had only dreamt of. Despite this, her life had not been filled with many good things. As a matter of fact, she considered her empty, emotional solitude the only positive aspect of her life. She fought daily battles to escape abuse and torture.
Trained to be an expert assassin, she was charged with kidnapping Kay and delivering her to Kira’s master, Lord Donovan.
As the two young women set forth in their journeys, their paths would cross in unimaginable ways. The only question that would remain was who would come out alive and whole in the end?
WARNING: This is a upper ya/young adult/new adult fictional story that includes some explicit language, graphic violence, and mild sexual situations. Recommended for ages sixteen and up.
Talk about tension. This was frigging ridiculous.
Nick stormed outside, leaving the door wide open. It didn’t take a rocket scientist to see that he trusted Ryan about as far as he could throw him. Looking at Nick, I was actually betting he might be able to throw Ryan kind of far. That made me giggle to myself, and Ryan just looked at me curiously.
“What are you laughing at, Kay?”
“Oh, I don’t know. Take your pick. You. Nick. My life. My now broken ankle. The fact that I now know faeries and werewolves exist. In fact, just book me on the train to Crazyville because apparently, that’s where we’re headed next.”
Ryan looked at me silently, obviously questioning my sanity. I couldn’t blame him as I was questioning my sanity myself.
“Just get me to the kitchen, please.”
He scooped me up in his arms and carried me to the kitchen like the groom carries the bride over the threshold. Nice, but awkward. We stood in the middle of the kitchen, and I looked up at his face to see him staring back at me. He did that an awful lot. It was as if he was looking for some answer that I couldn’t give him.
“Well, thanks for the lift and all, but you can set me down now. Over there by the sink would be great.”
He set me down gently as if I was porcelain. “Sorry about that. I just didn’t want you to hurt your ankle and figured carrying you would be easiest.”
“Thanks, Ryan” I couldn’t help smiling at him. Something about him warmed my insides somehow.
I held on to the counter and reached up into the cabinet for some of my meds. I found the bottle with the little blue pills for pain and nausea and held them in my hand. “How long do you think we’re going to be gone? Maybe I need to write my mom a note or take some stuff. Think we’ll be back in an hour or so?”
“I don’t think we’ll be gone long. It depending on how far away Nick lives. Then we can bring you back here and get some of your things if you’d like. Pack you up before we take you home.”
“I am home, Ryan. As far as I’m concerned, this little trip is only to prove you wrong. Then I’ll be coming back here and waiting for my mom to get home so I can NOT tell her about my NON-exciting day with my NON-date and my NON-werewolf sighting.” I cringed a little at the end of my tirade. It wasn’t fair to take it out on him, but I was a bit tired from the stress and I was getting a little cranky.
Crystal and Melissa often live half their lives with their heads in the clouds dreaming of alpha military hunks, werewolves and kick ass heroines crazy enough to chase after creatures that they unquestionably should know better than to chase.
Their first YA novel, The Burning Star, was released in May 2012. Big Bad Bite is their second novel, but their first adult paranormal romance. They are now working on their next two novels, Walk On The Striped Side and Secret Maneuvers. With these projects underway, they are looking forward to showing the rest of the world their crazy stories, heroes and heroines that often plague their minds until written, and hope you will join them on their journey!
