Overview

*** NA/YA crossover novel. Suitable for early teen to adult***

“Now that is a beautiful sight.”
I whip around, instantly covering myself with my arms. “What are you doing here?” I scream. “Get out!”
“Aw, don’t tell me you’re a shy one. I didn’t peg you for that.” Bastien grins as he throws his leg over a rock and settles in for what appears to be an annoyingly lengthy time.
Using one arm, I swim as quickly as I can away from the center of the pool and head straight for the rocks. Bastien seems completely unphazed by my rising fury and he grins down at me. He does however reach out to retrieve my dagger from the pile of clothes he’s perched beside.
“Have you no decency?” I growl through chattering teeth. If I don’t get out soon I’ll risk hypothermia, but there’s no way I’m going to give Bastien the satisfaction of seeing me naked.
Twirling the dagger in his hand, he appears to contemplate my question. “I suppose this might seem a bit forward of me, but I thought you might like to know it’s time to go.”
“Fine. Message received. Leave now!”
He leans over the edge, peering down at me. “And miss all the fun? I think not.”

Illyria has never known a life without the Rebellion.
Instinct.
Survival.
Nothing else matters…until she ventures out into unknown territory and is faced with an enemy that proves even more fierce and determined than she ever thought.

Bastien is infuriating, dangerous and annoyingly gorgeous. Eamon is familiar, comforting and turning into a man before her eyes. Both want her heart...but she is torn between duty and desire. When her choice affects all of mankind, how can she allow herself to be selfish?
There is a power within her that can change everyone’s fate…but she underestimated the most potent force on Earth—love. Illyria must discover if she has the strength to sacrifice her heart to save mankind.

What a great book, once started I couldn't put it down. I can't wait for the next two books in the trilogy. This is not just for teenagers as I am in my fifties.

Meet the Author

I’ve been a carbaholic since birth and am now hopelessly addicted to frozen Cokes. I mix coleslaw into my KFC mashed potatoes, soak cornbread in my milk and never drink from a straw. I’m not really a big chocolate fan (I know, GASP!) and I want to run a marathon by the time I’m 35. Ok, maybe 40. 45???My one vice in life, apart from cupcakes, is Vera Bradley stores! Why does she have to make sure amazing purses?!?!I’m a world traveler at heart who loves setting insane goals and working to meet them. I adore attending book signings to meet new friends and am trying to overcome my introvert nature. I spend far too much time on Facebook chatting with fans and have a heart for raising funds to help Action for Autism, a truly amazing St. Louis based organization that helps kids reach their true and unique potential.I'm the author of:Forbidden, Book I of the Arotas TrilogyReckoning, Book II of the Arotas TrilogyRedemption, Book III of the Arotas TrilogyDefiance Rising, Book I of the Rising Trilogy
