About the Author

Although all of Carmen's stories have a common thread--romance, mystery, and suspense--not all of her novels are supernatural. Her first five books are romantic-suspense whodunits. They are all stand-alone novels; however, she does link each of her stories with a little surprise.

Carmen also has a mystery series with a ghostly paranormal edge.

I am so in love with this entire series. Carmen tells a great story and finally changes the ridiculous Vampire tales into something a little more tangible and honest. She knows how to tell you a story but give you great mental visuals. Derrick and his people are unique in deed! I highly recommend the entire series to everyone who loves a great story and a touch of romance with a twist of mistery! I plan ot buy the entire series in paperback real soon. I have the entire set on Ebook. THIS IS A MUST!!! 5 stars!

I grabbed this book as an introduction to the Creatus novel series that I had read about which mixes elements of mystery, romance, suspense and a touch of the supernatural. The action in this prequel takes place fourteen years before Book One and is intended to develop the characters and fill in some gaps in the story line. While there is no overt sex or graphic violence, the protagonist named Kris witnesses her mother being stabbed to death, and experiments with drugs and sex in her quest to find herself. For this reason, I would not recommend the book for younger teens. Derrick Ashton, her hero, is a Creatus, one of a species almost wiped out by humans. He struggles to fulfill his destiny as an overseer, while feeling a tremendous pull to be a “watcher” protecting this young human girl even though it is forbidden by his kind. Derrick cannot explain why he feels compelled to be her Dark Angel though he knows his destiny and a mate has already been chosen for him. Here we have two main characters struggling to overcome their demons and find their niche in the world. Derrick cannot help himself and Kris cannot control her destructive behavior. Every time she is at the point of self-destruction, she feels the presence of her Dark Angel. Fans of other books in the series will want to read this novella to round out the Creatus experience. The author draws the reader in with the skillfully developed plot and imbues the reader with the conflict and torment the characters are experiencing. There is a nice balance of story elements including the right combination of mystery, suspense, and paranormal presenting an interesting drama. Fans of all three genres will enjoy the novella. Older teens will identify with Kris and her struggles to find her way.
