A newborn witch is rescued by two smoking-hot brothers. Can she unravel their dark secrets? Or will she lose her soul trying?
Alana sucks at witchcraft. Healing, telepathy, seeing through illusions… she can’t master any of it.
Sparring with the six-foot-three muscular Walker brothers doesn’t help her focus. Alana’s not about to let herself fall for a man—or a demon—especially not the ones that abducted her in an attempt to save her life.
When a bitter demon learns of Alana’s existence, he’ll stop at nothing to possess her and drive a wedge between the two brothers. If Alana can’t learn to use her powers, she’ll die. If she can’t discern illusion from reality, she’ll lose her mind.
Nothing stays black and white in a world full of shadows.
Demons, witches, forbidden love… visit the otherworld today.

My first novel was a young adult romance. I finished it when I was 14 years old, printed it with my dad’s old printer, and bounded it inside an old hardcover with duct tape, so my first book wasn’t paranormal. I have a contemporary romance/woman’s fiction in the works, and I’d love to write a straight-up sci-fi romance at some point. But paranormal is my one true love.
The main reason behind this passion is Buffy the Vampire Slayer. It’s my favorite series of all time. Since Buffy, I’ve craved paranormal romance and urban fantasy. I watched way too many shows like Vampire Diaries, Teen Wolf, Angel, Sabrina, Charmed, and Supernatural (there’s not enough romance in that show.) And my obsession quickly crossed over to books.
I started sharing my stories on fanfiction websites and loved the response I got, so I wrote more and more until people stopped noticing that I was French-Canadian. Then, I decided to roll up my sleeves and put the paranormal novel I’d been daydreaming about for many years on paper. A lot of people ask me why I write in English, and the reason is that I wanted to reach more people when I wrote fanfiction, and I loved it so much I kept doing it and now I can’t imagine anything different.
Paranormal is the best canvas for me because it doesn’t limit my actions scenes or characters in any way. The characters don’t have to answer to the same moral code as we do, and there can be a lot of action without too many humans dying.
Creatures of the night are intense and mysterious, and there’s an edge of fear that makes scenes sizzle.
And I can paint vivid pictures of blood moons, crank the heat up in a scene by using an alluring sex-demon and make readers cringe with descriptions of ghouls. Also, only in a paranormal book can your hero tie up the heroine to a bed, carve her with a knife, and make her drink his blood while remaining a good guy because he’s doing it to save her life! Ah!
Paranormal is the best!
