Hunted by those who fear their gifts will Rourke and Kaitlyn be able to overcome everything trying to tear them apart? Or in the end will the hunters steal the choice from them?
Wrapped in a golden shimmer of power the lone woman stood still among the rush of creatures eager to escape the hunters. As each neared her position a flare of raw power reached out to caress them until they vanished. A handsome black unicorn, horn gleaming onyx in the sunlight, sides flecked with sweat, pulled up hard before her.
“Rourke.” She said reaching a hand out to him. Speaking directly into her mind Rourke said;
Nodding she reached out with her power and with a gentle caress, sent him through the portal to safety on a new world.
The humans approach, hurry!
Flexing her powers she reached out to envelop the approaching beings, transporting them to her side, then beyond the shift in reality to Alter Earth.
Return now!! She yelled through the common mental link. They are nearly on us.
Shattering the peace of the grove humans burst into the clearing firing arrows into those who fled before them. Only to watch each arrow drop to the ground without finding its mark. One by one the paranormal creatures disappeared before the human hunters’ eyes. As they watched, the golden power expanded outward, away from the proud, lone woman until only a faint haze remained in the air.
One young hunter notched an arrow and sent it flying towards her heart. As it found its mark she screamed, an eerie banshee-like sound that had the hunters covering their ears in distress. A mental cry traveled weakly along the communal connection as she fell backwards towards a deep, still pool.
I will return for you. Believe. Survive.
Her powers snapped back in a tsunami of wind and debris, toppling the hunters. The collapsing portal cushioned her fall on the fragrant green grass of Alter Earth.
The Golden Series Book 2
A year ago David met his mate. It should have been the happiest day of his life. Instead, it was the worst. Emma ran from him. Only his ability to touch her mind keeps him sane but how long will that be enough?
Hunted and alone Emma hasn’t stopped running since she left Haven. David’s presence in her mind brings her comfort in the hardest times. When she returns to Haven will Emma be able to face David in person or will fear keep them apart?
With hunters after David and Emma’s ex stalking her is there any way this mating stands a chance?
Heart pounding Emma stood behind the door as terror threatened to overwhelm her. He’d found her. She didn’t know how but that bastard ex of hers had found her and now she was going to die.
Sliding down the wall Emma wrapped her arms around her knees fighting back a whimper. The door rattled again as he tried to gain access to her room. Emma flinched away then froze watching the knob intently.
“Keith, wrong room!” A voice called from outside. “Crap man you are really fucked up aren’t you? You’ve gotta lay off the hard stuff.” As the voice faded away Emma gasped for air. A mistake, it was just a mistake.
Emma? A voice in her mind, gravelly in the sexiest of ways.
“Not now David,” Emma snapped opening eyes she hadn’t even been aware she’d closed.
Just making sure you are okay. An adrenaline spike just echoed through our connection. David’s voice echoed in Emma’s mind. After a year of him popping in and out of her mind it no longer shocked her.
“Just peachy. I saw a mouse okay! God. If you want me to show up for this wedding you are going to have to take a step back.” Trembles shook Emma’s entire body. She was so confused. Part of her shook in terror whenever she thought about returning to Madison for Kaitlyn and Rourke’s wedding. It meant she’d have to face David. The last time she saw him that hadn’t worked out so well for her. The other part of her melted at the sound of his voice in her head. The wicked things this man said to her could make Emma orgasm without a single touch. That was the problem though, the touching.
“I’m not yours David. Claiming it doesn’t make it so. You can back the hell off anytime now.” Emma said renewed terror causing her teeth to chatter as she rubbed her hands over her face.
No love, you aren’t and that’s my fault. But I am yours. David’s reply caused Emma’s heart and stomach to clench as her terror eased under a wave of lust.

She lives in Queensland Australia with her husband, three sons, dog, cat, ducks and chickens where she continues to write about the paranormal folks that poke around in her head.
I get asked all the time what do I do to relax. Writing itself can be very relaxing for me once I get started. After all, it’s like visiting another world. But when I really want deep relaxation I do what I’ve done my whole life. I read someone elses stories. Travel to worlds that aren’t of my imaginings.
You may be wondering what I like to read. The answer is everything, anything. Heck on one particularly wet holiday at the beach as a teen I read the bible in the hotel room because it was the only reading material available. (my luggage had gotten well and truly lost) Surprisingly not a bad read either, it’s got a bit of everything, once you get past the language anyhow.
My favorite books to read though, the ones that have a special place on my bookshelves, they all belong to friends. I didn’t always meet these incredible women before I started reading them. In fact, I only met Sherrilyn Kenyon this year and I’ve been reading her for a decade.
I do love chatting with other authors, watching the super stars fan girl over each other is a particular happy of mine but I can only do that at convention and signings. Clearly, I can’t spend all my time at conventions and signings (although I wouldn’t mind it so much.) or I’d never getting any writing done.
Most of all I love to write. Immersing myself in my own little world where I get to play god and move the pieces at my own whim. At least until they put their own two cents in.
