The one man she wants is the one man destined to destroy her.

Sooner or later we all end up dead. Jace Cutler doesn’t have the luxury of staying that way. After receiving a fatal stab wound, he awakens in a hospital room in Portland, Oregon, with no memory and a big hole where his soul used to be. Worst of all is the glow. Everyone is surrounded by a strange white aura he hungers to possess, none more compelling than the one enveloping Dr. Lia Benson.

Lia has always been ruled by reason, refusing to put stock in such nebulous things as destiny. Until Jace dies in her arms, then miraculously comes back to life. Whenever he’s near, her soul responds and her body burns. And she’s consumed by odd dreams she’s convinced are Jace’s lost memories.

When Lia is kidnapped, Jace tracks her and discovers a shocking explanation for who—and what—he is. Something no longer human, a dark legacy that until now has lain dormant within him. Something that could destroy the one woman he’d sacrifice everything to protect.

Save her life…or save mankind. His choice could cost him his soul.
For nearly two centuries, Marcus has been the Watchers’ most faithful soldier. Sworn to protect humanity, driven by an unrelenting compulsion to atone for past sins, he has rarely found a compelling reason to question his mission, let alone defy his leader.

His partner, Regan, is his exact opposite, an enigma he longs to solve. A free spirit and reckless to a fault, Regan acts first and thinks later. Her smart mouth and tender heart have fascinated Marcus for decades, but the Watchers’ strict vow of celibacy has forced him to ignore the sizzling attraction between them. Until now.
When Regan goes rogue to protect a very special little boy, Marcus is forced to make an impossible choice—commit an act of treason or watch the woman he secretly loves die.

Hunted by enemies and allies alike, Regan and Marcus run for their lives, fighting to thwart an age-old prophecy and guard a boy whose destiny may very well be to destroy the world…or save it.

Guest Post:

Life is Stranger Than Fiction: A Giant Discovery
By Anne Hope

Ever since I began writing paranormal fiction, I’ve spent countless hours researching things that go bump in the night. The Internet is flooded with stories of ghosts, fallen angels, giants and even goblins! I can’t say how many of these stories are actually true, but they sure are fascinating to read.

One day, as I was sifting through crazy accounts of poltergeists, aliens and mummified remains of inhuman beings, I thought why not share them with my readers? After all, it is these unexplained phenomena that give flight to my imagination and inspire me.

So here’s the giant discovery of the day:

If the stories on the Net are to be believed, over two hundred “giant” digs have been uncovered in recent years.

In May 1912, near Lake Delavan, Wisconsin, an archeological dig resulted in the discovery of eighteen giant skeletons. These skeletons ranged from seven-and-a-half to ten feet in height and had large, elongated skulls. Not only that, but they had a double row of teeth, six fingers, six toes and came in different races.

Apparently, Wisconsin isn’t the only place where giants were found. Similar digs have been uncovered in Minnesota, Iowa, Illinois, Ohio, Kentucky and even New York. Likewise, in Peru, strange elongated skulls were unearthed, hinting at a hybrid race.

Okay, so now my interest is piqued. Who or what were these creatures—angel/human hybrids, aliens or an extinct species that walked the earth along with the dinosaurs?

Whatever the case, it sets the foundation for a riveting storyline. This is the point where my muse takes over. It makes no difference how farfetched these articles are. What matters is that they’ve planted the seed of an idea, and that seed will grow into a novel or a series. That’s the beauty of being an author. Anything is possible.

In my Dark Souls series, the heroes and villains are descendants of the Nephilim, an ancient race of angel/human hybrids believed to be extinct. They live among us, corrupting our thoughts, stealing our hope, and feeding on our souls. But not all of them are evil. A number of hybrids have banded together to form the Watchers, a group of supernatural beings who have sworn an oath to protect humanity against their kind.

This sets the stage for a tremendous amount of conflict. The heroes and heroines in this series must fight their own dark nature for the good of humanity. They are faced with impossible choices, forced to make painful sacrifices, all to avert an Apocalypse they may prove powerless to stop. A mission that could cost them everything they hold dear, including their lives.

Writing the Dark Souls series has been an exciting and emotional journey. Every book features a different couple, each linked by one of four souls prophesized to stop the Apocalypse. What I’ve enjoyed most is exploring the emotional kaleidoscope that makes up these characters and the unbreakable ties that bind them to each other.

Angels or humans, giants or aliens, they’ve each captured a small part of my soul, and I deeply hope they touch a small part of yours as well. If they do, I’ve succeeded in my mission, and all the hours I’ve spent surfing for articles on the strange and unexplained have proven well worth it.
