Bodyguards (QuickSilver Codex #1)

On the verge of her twentieth birthday, Vivien’s worries are those of a typical young woman: doing well in college, gaining more independence, and maybe managing to show Brad, her classmate and sometimes jogging partner, that she wouldn’t mind taking their burgeoning relationship to a different level.

Everything changes in the blink of an eye. Vivien stumbles into a knife fight, watches a man die in front of her, and soon listens, stunned, as Brad and his brother Aedan tell her a story of magic, vampires and a murderous ruler intent on killing a princess in hiding – a tale in which she is the princess and heir to a realm she didn’t know existed.

Vivien’s first instinct is to refuse to believe this incredible tale, even if it comes from a man she is attracted to. But when her self-proclaimed bodyguards use magic to take her to a different world, the edges of reality start blurring and Vivien has to figure out who she truly is.

Excerpt from Quickening

Chapter 1

Vivien felt like screaming.

It wouldn’t help anything. It certainly wouldn’t help her channel. All it would do was startle Brad and summon Aedan into the room. If she knew Brad at all, he’d feel bad that she was frustrated; as for his brother, he’d only admonish Vivien to try harder. As if she hadn’t been trying her best for three days.

“Yes, I am focusing,” she replied, barely hanging on to her calm. She didn’t trust herself to say another word and remain civil, so she clamped her mouth shut. It wasn’t Brad’s fault that she was failing miserably. She had no one to blame but herself.

Brad must have picked up on how annoyed she was because he didn’t challenge her words. He remained perfectly still, sitting across her on the other side of the dining table. Had the table not been so wide, she could have reached out and asked to hold his hand. Between them, on the polished, golden-hued wood, a single roseberry waited, a deep red color with purple hints, perfectly round. That innocent fruit, leftover from a light breakfast, taunted Vivien.

Quickening (QuickSilver Codex #2)

On Foh’Ran, a parallel world in which a magical force called the Quickening rules the lives of humans and vampires alike, Vivien just won her first battle.

Raised on Earth, Vivien had no idea she was heir to Foh’Ran’s throne until Brad and Aedan, her bodyguards, revealed themselves to her and took her to her family’s ancestral castle. Her first confrontation with Rhuinn, the man who usurped her throne, ended as well as could be hoped and she won a few days of respite until she has to appear at the royal court again.

Before she does, however, she’ll need to break through her mental block and master the Quickening to prove herself a worthy daughter of Foh’Ran. She’ll also have to gain allies among Foh’Ran’s influential families. The most difficult part, however, might be to follow Aedan’s advice and learn to act like a queen when she’s still unsure whether she truly wants the throne, and would rather simply be Brad’s girlfriend.

Excerpt from Bloodchild

Under the light of the moon, each ripple on the lake seemed magnified. Aedan’s emotions felt the same way.

Sitting with his back to the slim trunk of a small tree, he watched Bradan by the side of the lake. He’d cleaned the blood off his face and neck, and was now washing his shirt.

Blood stains wouldn’t show on the black fabric. Bradan had said so when Aedan had told him to wash off the blood. What Bradan didn’t understand yet was that it wasn’t about stains. The issue was the smell.

After so many years, the scent of blood did not bother Aedan anymore, but he did remember his first days—his first years—as a vampire. Blood back then, whether the scent or sight, had always drawn out his fangs, made the hunger within him roar louder, and made it harder to resist his impulse to hunt and feed.

It would take time for Bradan to learn to control the hunger and himself. The trouble was, they did not have time. Continue reading…

Bloodchild (QuickSilver Codex #3)

Five days. That’s how long Vivien has to prepare for the first of three magic duels against Rhuinn, the usurper king of Foh’Ran. She challenged him to the duels not because she wants the throne, although it is her birthright, but because she blames him for the death of Brad – one of her bodyguards, and the man she loves.

Except that Brad is alive again… or the next best thing. His brother Aedan, rather than losing him, broke all customs and made him a vampire like himself, a decision that might cost him dearly when his own Maker confronts him.

Vivien’s joy over not losing Brad, however, might have to be hampered when Aedan’s disapproval of their relationship takes a new turn. Brad’s new vampire instincts are strong, and his hunger for blood is hard – if not impossible – to control. The two brothers swore an oath to protect Vivien, but one of them might be the greatest threat to her safety… at least for the next five days…
