Two lives turned upside down. Two big secrets. One steamy vacation in the Hawaiian islands. Will Ireland and Sully find what they want most in each other?
Ireland needed a break. It had been a rough year and she needed a fresh start. Her coven was embroiled in a civil war and when she refused to fall in line with the rest of them, she was kicked to the curb. By her friends, by her family, even by her boyfriend. She'd moved past the grief stage, even past the anger stage. For the first time in her life, she was free to do what she wanted. She had no one's expectations to fill but her own. So, she decided to celebrate. She bought herself a three-week vacation to Hawaii. No responsibilities. Just fun in the sun and time to figure out what was next for her.
When Sully brought home two tickets to Hawaii, he thought Kallie would be thrilled. He'd envisioned three idyllic weeks on a tropical island. Swimming in the ocean, laying on the beach, catching a few waves, and eating in world class restaurants. But within an hour, he found himself holding an extra ticket as he watched Kallie put the last of her bags in another man's truck. He'd torn up that ticket and flushed the pieces down the toilet. But he still had every intention of using that other ticket. Maybe some time alone was exactly what he needed.

A king whose seeking protection and a killer searching for peace, but in each other they find so much more. When survival instincts kick in, so do their primitive instincts. This summer won’t be the only thing heating up.

P.T. Macias I live in Calif with my husband and children. My grandkids are my treasure. When I am not writing, I enjoy going to cruises, concerts, eating white peaches, pistachio ice cream, and sipping margaritas. I have been reading the romance and suspense genre since I was a young girl. I always dreamed of writing paranormal tales that are full of love, incredible sexy wild men, mysterious realms, and a dash of suspense. I love writing in the paranormal genre because of the limitless range of characteristics, powers, and weaknesses available to develop the characters' and realms. I love sexy angels, gods, vampires, werewolves, dragons, and other entities. Patricia♥

I’m a busy mom of three and finding time for leisurely reading was never easy, so I write stories that are fast-paced, yet detailed with satisfying conclusions. If I thought making time to read was difficult, I was in for a huge surprise when I started writing, but now that I started, I can’t picture myself doing anything else!

My name isKimand my last name,Deister, is pronounced “Die-ster.” I always tell my husband I should have kept my married name, Ingram. So much easier to to pronounce! I am a writer thoroughly in love with words. Reading them, writing them… I love that words can take you outside of your world and let the unimaginable become imaginable. I love them so much that I decided I needed to create some worlds and stories of my own! Besides being a writer, I am an Army veteran (and Army wife) and a mom to four sons. I grew up in northern New York in a tiny college town called Potsdam. Over the years, our Army life has taken us all over the place and I have been lucky enough to work and live in some pretty amazing places. Right now we live in Hawaii on the island of O’ahu, minutes from the North Shore.
Creatively living through music, writing and yoga. I love the arts and how they move you and make you feel. Reading has always been a great love of mine right after my love of music. Each song written is a story waiting to be told. Which, along with my over active imagination fueled my desire to write about the chaos that goes on in my head. I love stringing words together. I love making people get lost in a story and connecting with fictional characters that remind them of someone they know. I published my first book Shattered in 2013. It’s the first installment in the Shattered Hearts Series. Shattered started out as an assignment for a college course I took at John Jay College of Criminal Justice. After I graduated college I went through my old papers and reconnected with the story morphing into so much more then what I wrote in my college course. Now you can find me doing yoga, listening to music and working on getting out all the stories in my head, including dabbling in poetry. (Which I've always had a secret love affair with).
