Betrayal lies cloaked in shadow.

Seventeen year old Ryleigh Donnovan is certain her life is cursed. Nothing ever goes smoothly, and her first job interview is no exception. An earthquake rocks the building, sending Ryleigh on a frantic search for her younger sister, a search which lands her in the hospital. Terrified they’ll push her for answers she can’t afford to give, Ryleigh flees with a mysterious stranger.

Jackson Maynard is about to be ordained as a Death Dealer, a warrior for the Kingdom of Cymmera, but first he must pass one more test. When he fails to acquire the human girl the prophet has chosen, he’s forced to stand trial for treason. Banished from his realm, he seeks out the girl from the vision, Ryleigh Donnovan, and together they embark on a journey to save his dying kingdom.

“Yes.” He nodded, holding her gaze, leaned closer. His lips parted. His eyes closed. His lips met hers, gently at first. He pulled away, stood, and pulled her into his embrace. He touched his lips to hers again.

More heat this time, urgency, need. Her heart beat frantically, pounded against her ribs. She needed more, needed to be closer to him, needed…air. Her chest tightened. Painfully. Spots of light floated before her eyes. Yet she wanted more. Weakness flooded her. Her legs tingled, then gave out.

He lifted her into his arms.

“Ryleigh.” Mia’s footsteps padded softly down the hallway.

He tore his mouth from hers. Harsh gasps and tremors shook his body. 

Instead of finding pleasure in his eyes, as she’d expected, she found horror. 

He dropped her onto the chair. “Oh, God. What have I done?” The whisper wasn’t meant for her, was more of an internal reprimand.

It hurt just the same. She turned away, tears tracking down her cheeks.

“I’m so sorry, Ryleigh.”

She didn’t respond, couldn’t.
