Romance/Love Triangle/Fantasy
Elements
Kayla has a plan. She’s moving to the
city after graduation and Luke’s coming with her. He’ll eventually become a
doctor, she’ll be a ballerina—and they’ll live happily ever after. That is,
until dark forces, led by a sister she never knew existed, start hunting her
down for a power she never knew she had.
When Kayla
starts working with a boy named Alec to learn how to defend herself and to stop
the evil from eliminating the worlds, she finds herself falling for him. Hard.
Torn between two loves and struggling to do what’s right for Earth and
Afterlife, Kayla must decide if she’s fighting to keep her life together, or
letting it go to save everyone else’s.

Excerpt:
Luke nodded.
“Let me get this straight. So, this guy, he can heal your leg, protect you from
something that isn’t yet clear to me, and bring you to some otherworldly place,
where you’re reunited with your father?”
“Yeah.”
There was that word again.
He pulled
his hand out of mine and ran his fingers through his hair. “Well, that’s pretty
damn hard to compete with.”
“Luke, this
isn’t a competition. This is my life. He’s already saved me once.”
“And I’ll do
it again,” Alec said.
Luke pointed
a finger at Alec. “I don’t care what you can do. I don’t like you. You stole my
girl, who’s pregnant with my baby.” Luke stepped around me and got in Alec’s
face. “She will always have a part of me in her life.”
Alec slowly
shook his head. “Not new news, and for the record, you stole her from me. So,
you don’t get to play that card.”
The tension
thickened in the air until the hairs stood on the back of my neck.
“She never
said a word to you before all this weird shit started to go down.” Luke poked
Alec in the chest. “You’re a liar.”
“It’s true,”
I whispered.
Luke whirled
around. “What?”
“Before us.
It was him.”
Luke opened
his mouth, as if to say something, but snapped it shut. He finally spoke after
a long moment. “You said I was your first boyfriend. Your first kiss. Your
first everything with a guy. You lied to me?”
“At the
time, I thought that was true. He finds me in my dreams and takes me to
Afterlife. That’s how we met. I never even knew he was real. I thought he was a
boy in some recurring dream. I never even remembered until I barreled him over
in the hallway one day by accident. His touch jarred my memory.”
Luke’s eyes
were wild. “Do me a favor. Do not talk about touching him, ever, in my
presence.”
“I’m sorry,
Luke. That’s why this is so difficult. I’m only now remembering things that
happened before us. It’s … confusing.”
“You were
with him? Actually with him, before me?”
I swallowed.
“We were sort of dating.”
“That’s not
what I meant.” A muscle ticked in Luke’s jaw, and realization dawned on me.
“Oh, no. We
didn’t.” I cleared my throat. “Not that…”
“I don’t
know what you’re so pissed about. You’re the one who got to have a real
relationship with her,” Alec said.
“Shut up.
Just shut the hell up.” Luke gently brushed me to the side, leaving him and
Alec staring each other down. “You’re an asshole.”
“Hate me, if
you want. Call me whatever you want. But that girl right there?” He pointed to
me. “She needs me. I swore to protect her, and I don’t give a shit about what
you think. I’m her best shot at survival. Your baby’s, too. So, next time you
get in my face, remember their lives are at stake and that your guns can’t
fight off the shit that’s coming.”
“Asshole,”
Luke muttered.
“Douche,”
Alec said under his breath.
“Stop
fighting,” I said from behind Luke’s back.
“You’re a
loser. A loser, with no friends and no life, who came in and stole my
girlfriend. Even if she chooses you, you’ll have to help her with my baby.
Every time you look at our kid, you’ll be reminded of who was there first.”
I took a
step outward to try to get between them, but Alec swung before I could, and as
his fist connected with Luke’s face, Luke charged him, sending them both
tumbling toward the ground.
Fists flew
and grunts sounded in the scuffle as they rolled, each trying to get the upper
hand.
“Stop!” I
yelled.
