Hunted: The Guardian Legacy series – coming April 2013 from Spencer Hill Press
Bran and Lil may have escaped an attempt to lure Lil to the dark side, and recovered the contracts damned people signed with Bran when he was a soul collector, but someone forgot to tell them that no one switches sides or cancels contracts without consequences.
Hunted by an unknown but powerful enemy, Lil, Bran and the Guardians must seek help from unlikely sources to avert total annihilation of the Guardians. When they finally face their enemy, one of them may have to make the ultimate sacrifice.
Runes (coming May 20, 2013)
Seventeen-year-old Raine Cooper has enough on her plate dealing with her father’s disappearance, her mother’s erratic behavior and the possibility of her boyfriend relocating. The last thing she needs is Torin St. James—a mysterious new neighbor with a wicked smile and uncanny way of reading her.
Raine is drawn to Torin’s dark sexiness against her better judgment, until he saves her life with weird marks and she realizes he is different. But by healing her, Torin changes something inside Raine. Now she can’t stop thinking about him. Half the time, she’s not sure whether to fall into his arms or run.
Scared, she sets out to find out what Torin is. But the closer she gets to the truth the more she uncovers something sinister about Torin. What Torin is goes back to an ancient mythology and Raine is somehow part of it. Not only are she and her friends in danger, she must choose a side, but the wrong choice will cost Raine her life.
I started making up fairytale stories before I could write, even wrote a play which was performed by my class in high school, but I didn’t complete my first story until I finished my PhD in chemistry and decided to be a stay-at-home mother. The idea for Awakened (originally named The Awakening) rose from the inner recesses of my mind after I came across the stories of kris/keris daggers. All I knew was that the weapon had to be at the center of my story. Soon the characters formed in my head and wouldn’t leave me alone, especially an orphaned girl named Lil. Finding a home for Awakened wasn’t easy. Books about fallen angels by other authors hit the shelves while I was still trying to find an agent and an editor willing to take a chance on me. Like most of my stories, Awakened is full of romance, mystery and adventure. I believe in the power of love, and that’s why I spice up my stories with romance. Betrayed, the official book 1, was released June 2012. Hunted will be out April 2013.
When I’m not working on my YA series, I write contemporary romance under the pen name E. B. Walters. I have five books released in this series. I live in picturesque valley in northern Utah with my husband, five children and two cats.
