Although Mia has returned to the safety of Sanctuary and the loving arms of her family, she struggles to merge the psychiatrist and mother she was with the surgeon and woman who was singularly focused on bringing the only thing that made sense in her existence to life, the children’s wing of the hospital she left behind. With her sudden disappearance, the wing is in jeopardy and Dr. Davis is fighting to ensure that all of her efforts instead go to his plastic surgery facility. To save what she held so dear and what brought her back to Andrew, Mia needs to return to the existence she forged without Andrew and her children to resume her role as Jonathan’s bride.
Determined to assist Mia in this endeavor, Andrew assumes Jonathan’s identity and they return to New York with everyone required to play a role and assume an identity which is not their own. To assist Mia in ensuring that the wing goes forward, Jeff returns as a visiting physician while Andrew ensures that the real Jonathan’s wishes are carried forward for the son of his girlfriend. The children enroll along with Jeff’s children in a new school where Grant, Julian and Paul have assumed positions as instructors and soon realize this new school holds secrets and hidden dangers of its own. The children quickly learn that the surreal world extends far beyond that which they have encountered in Sanctuary and with each challenge, their powers, especially Jacob’s explode.
Despite the battles fought and lessons learned, Andrew and Mia are about to face their most surprising discovery. As the family struggles in their new roles, Mia quickly learns that certain demons can truly rip the souls from their victims. Unfortunately, in Mia’s case it was not her essence that Marlena seized, it was the soul of Alexander’s developing twin. Together, Alexander and his twin would have had the power to end the condemnation of those who walk this earth for all eternity and revert vampires back to human form. Unfortunately in sending a returning David back to the depths of hell before securing the souls of those he held to channel forth, Reginald sealed the fate of Alexander’s twin and that of the soul of his brother who even now chooses to stay to protect the child from being used to release the most heinous evil.
To save them, Mia, Andrew, their family and friends must open the gate to hell on earth and face the truth of who they are and what they are willing to sacrifice to make things right and save those they love. As they face their final encounter, lives are lost, demons are released to heaven’s gates and the final secrets of the ties that bind Mia and Andrew to heaven and hell are revealed.
About the Author
We would like to thank all of those who have downloaded or passed on information about the Sanctuary Series books. We have already forwarded one hundred fifty dollars in relation to the second book in the series to our chosen school and are prepared to forward two additional checks in February, one for the school's chosen use and one for an academic program we chose. Thank you so much and please keep passing on the books. The charities are good and we are so hoping that our message may inspire authors who are widely respected and published to consider doing something similar, even if it is only with a small percentage of their proceeds. Thank you again so much.
Please note that our adult writer and editor has broken out and is producing a new adult series under the pseudonym L. Law which those who were involved in the Sanctuary Series, due to their age will not be involved in producing. We thank you for your support and if you are over the age of eighteen, like intrigue, passion, erotic romance and suspense, check it out. The book is available for pre-order at a reduced price but will go to the higher sale price after its release date.
Writing for me was born out of the necessity for some peace and relief during a draining and guilt ridden time in my life. My three wonderful children and husband underwent the difficult ordeal of uprooting our lives to care for my parents who were each dying of cancer.
Drastically altering our lives to ensure that the wonderful people who cared for me during childhood and were giving and loving grandparents to their only grandchildren had their family living with them and caring for their daily needs during the three years of their waning lives when cancer ensured they could not take care of themselves, was both rewarding and heart wrenching. The guilt of drastically changing the lives of my children and impairing their freedom led to many a sleepless night and the birth of this novel.
Despite our trials, as we looked around us, we realized for everything we felt, it is nothing compared to parents who are dealing with young children who fight the deadly disease and the siblings who struggle with guilt as they enjoy pleasures that their brother and sister are sometimes unable to participate in because of their long hospital stays.
Grateful for the blessings that we have and aware of the trials and tribulations of so many families struggling when cancer strikes, the Sanctuary series is dedicated to them. I hope that in some small way it shows that even when times look bad, creative ways of dealing with it can sometimes emerge.
Hope your family is well and happy reading.
Please note that each book in the Sanctuary series has a note to the reader requesting that if they enjoyed the book that they consider donating to a local charity and pass the book along.
Also note that the second book is being priced, but that the net proceeds from same will donated by the author to a school in the author's area. Since the school has children under the age of majority, I am not listing same and asking for donations to be sent directly to them because I feel it would be inappropriate. Also the reader can download the book to the smashwords library for free and donate to a school of their choosing
Thank you for your consideration in this matter.
