In An Instant Release today!!!

Sixteen year old Emersyn
Moore spends her summer days working part-time in a book store, enjoying her
next read, and hanging out with her best friend, Brianna. She also spends a lot
of time admiring Brianna’s older brother, Kaden, who has made it clear that he
sees Emersyn as nothing more than a sister. Emersyn concedes to her sisterly
role, keeping her feelings to herself, as well as the fantasies she knows will
never become reality. However, when Kaden is involved in a disabling accident,
everything changes, including their relationship.


Will it tear them apart,
making her long for the sisterly role she’d always despised, or will this life
altering experience bring them closer together, forcing Kaden to see her in a
new light? Only time will tell.
Time.
They say it will heal all wounds, but Emersyn knows that’s a lie. Some wounds
never heal, which is evident every time she looks at Kaden. 


 

In An Instant is the one story that has come from my heart more than any other book I’ve written. Kaden, one of the main characters, suffers injuries that most would think would make life unlivable, at least to the point where a normal life would never be accomplished. However, my nephew suffered the same fate in a similar accident, and even though his life’s story is totally different than Kaden’s, both lives give me hope. Every time I see my nephew smile, it’s like a rainbow, letting me know that the storms of life, as severe as they may seem, are only temporary. The sun will always return, and it’s up to us as to how we’re going to enjoy it.

Cover and Story Reveal

What if everything you wanted was all within your reach but not yours for the taking?

mystical-christmas-Klaus and Stefan are tearing through the South collecting hybrids and leaving a trail of dead bodies behind them. Unable to reach Stefan any other way, Elena devises a holiday plan to lure Stefan back home.

Damon thinks Elena is wasting her time and fears the worst. He and Stefan no longer celebrate Christmas, but if Klaus approves Elena’s request, Damon will support her by giving her what she wants—a traditional Christmas.

What Elena wants and what she gets are two different vampires altogether. Elena approaches Klaus and asks for Stefan’s release, even if it’s only for one Christmas weekend. Klaus agrees, but his terms and conditions are nonnegotiable.

Soon, Elena is holed up in a snow-covered chalet with the Salvatore brothers and Klaus, an original vampire with an unusual agenda. And he’s gone to great lengths to find out who Elena really loves.

Excerpt One

Dear Diary,

I used to love mystery and danger. Like other teenage girls, I’d often imagined what it might be like to find myself in the middle of a catastrophe, stuck between two great forces—like good and evil—only far more dramatic.

At that time, Stefan and Damon Salvatore didn’t exist in my world. The world—at least the one I lived in—was less complicated. My days then were in black and white, with an occasional burst of color and flare, compliments of Caroline. 

Then the Salvatore brothers entered my life and everything changed. I soon learned there wasn’t a line of division down the middle with these two. And after I met Damon and Stefan, my former life faded to black and now the past seems surreal.

I look down at the Salvatore driveway, now lined with packed snow and jagged tracks and wonder how I could’ve been so naïve. Who was that young girl who compartmentalized thoughts, people, places and things?  Why didn’t she take the time to see the bigger picture with more multidimensional aspects, more depth?

As I think about the coming hours with a mix of dread and a dash of excitement, I now know a well-rounded life takes a triangle’s shape. Life isn’t clean and tidy with a circular rotation driven by nature to lead us all back to where we started. It’s not boxed up all nice and neat with defined planes and specific instructions to make our days easier. How boring would that be? Then again, after barely surviving these last few months, boring sounds like a little slice of heaven. 

It’s the most wonderful time of year or it is for those who believe in the two-sided world, the world beyond this window, the one where others grade their mere existence by good or evil.

But there is a third entity or force. And he’s standing right behind me. 

Excerpt Two

“You promised to release him while we’re in Tennessee.”

“And I will,” Klaus assured her. “Once we’re settled in and before the sun goes down.”

“Is there a ‘but’ in there somewhere?”

“All right, Elena, you win. I’ll let you in on a little secret.” His demeanor changed then. “You can’t play with fate or run from it, love. Katerina tried and as you saw for yourself, she failed on numerous occasions. She also loved two brothers as you love two brothers.”

“I never said—”

Klaus held up his hand. “Let me finish. Damon gives you what you need, what you must have at any cost. Stefan, on the other hand, gives you what you want—the ability to stay committed to your high moral standards. The Stefan you know gives you a normal relationship, an acceptable bond. Your friends like him. Your teachers accept him.”

“What about the Stefan you know?”

“The Stefan I know would rip your pretty little neck apart if I so much as compelled him to do so.”

She swallowed, processing. Klaus wanted to hurt her. He wanted to watch how she interacted with the Salvatore brothers. He would then later use what he learned against her. “You made Stefan into something he’s not.”

“On the contrary,” Klaus said. “We’re vampires. That makes us hunters or predators by nature. We’re only killers by choice.”

Beta Readers’ “Favorite Lines from The Vampire Diaries” Mystical Christmas

(Kindle Worlds Novella) [Kindle Edition]

  1. Her mind’s eyes flickered with newspaper clippings about a rampant killing spree, a murderous binge controlled by Klaus and executed by Stefan.
  1. “On the contrary,” Klaus said. “We’re vampires. That makes us hunters or predators by nature. We’re only killers by choice.”
  1. “Stefan’s weapons are embedded in his gums. No one hands him anything. He takes what he wants.”
  1. “You and Damon probably weren’t supposed to spend Christmas together. You aren’t exactly an ideal mistletoe-seeking pair.”
  1. “At the end of the day, you’re nothing more than a bleeding vein to him, Elena.”
  1. Their love washed over her like a high tide racing toward shore in the middle of a devastating storm, a volatile gale that would temporarily calm before striking with brutal force in the desolate hours of a quiet holiday night.
  1. “Proximity is a real bitch when you’re the only one with a beating heart in a houseful of vampires.”
  1. “You can make a deal with the devil but it doesn’t mean you have to follow him back to hell.”
  1. “Far be it for me to break the news here, but we’re both dead, brother.” Stefan lifted his glass. “I thought you knew.”
  1. “I can’t pretend I don’t have feelings for you when every single time I look at you, I only see an extension of me.”
  1. “It’s hard to choose a side when your heart draws its sword for one cause while your head supports another.”

Cover Reveal — K.R. Grace The Loner

We are so excited to reveal to you the cover for K.R. Grace’s debut novel The Loner, book one in the Daughters of Destiny Series.

Cover Art By Nathalia Suellen

TheLoner KRGraceStar Allistar:

Life is divided into two stages for me: before and after. Unfortunately, I’m not coping so well in the “after” stage. My parents decide transferring me to a new school for my last semester of high school will knock me out of my funk. As if a new location is the cure for your boyfriend dying in a terrible car accident. I go along with it, though, I mean, what other choice do I have?

I only have one goal at the new school: be invisible. Turns out, small towns have nothing better to do than gawk at the new girl. Great. I instantly despise everyone…except him. Drake Knight. Town bad boy, walks in a cloud of mystery, and turns girls into goo. Not usually my type. Yet, for some reason, I’m drawn to him like a diabetic in a candy store.

But there’s just one teeny, tiny problem: he turns into a wolf. And not just that, but he’s an important wolf-boy whose boss is a powerful angel and has some intense enemies of the demonic persuasion. I mean, we’re talking psycho fallen angels who want to take over the world type of intense. How do I explain that one to the parents?

Anyway, I once thought my heart belonged to the one I lost, but now…now I’m not so sure.

Drake Knight:

I don’t do love. I tried it once, and she ended up dead in a ravine. So, I tend to keep my distance from people. It’s better that way. safer. Yet, when Star Allistar walks into the band room and flashes those big, solemn green eyes at me, I’m a goner.

There’s just one problem: she’s human, and humans don’t survive in my world. But I won’t let that stop me. She’s my purpose, my hope, my mate, and I’m prepared to kill anyone who tries to jeopardize her happiness.

In a twist of Fate, two other shifters also believe Star is their mate. There can only be one. I’ve never had to fight for love. Didn’t even know my heart still worked. But now? Now all bets are off. Star is mine. I just have to make her see it, before it’s too late.

krgraceAbout the Author:

As a child, K.R. Grace had an overactive imagination. When it was obvious she wasn’t going to change anytime soon, her mom shoved a pen and paper in her hand and said, “Write it down.” So, at the age of eight, her first story was born, and the writing hasn’t stopped since. When she’s not running with wolves, sleeping with bears, or flying with falcons, she can be found checking out local bands or watching movies about things that go “boo” in the night. She has a dog that is afraid of his own shadow and a cat that was a mob leader in a former life.
