“Open your eyes,” he whispers so low that I almost miss it.
At his hushed command, my lids flutter open, locking onto his indigo eyes. They’re faintly glowing, which is odd, but I assume it must be an effect of the flames. He licks his lips, his heat radiating onto and into me. Asher’s eyes scan me, unhurried.
His voice is thick. “You’re not what I expected, siren.”
I frown. “I’m not sure how to respond to that?”
He smiles sadly. “You’re stronger than I thought you would be,” his tone contemplative.
“How would you know?” My eyes dart to his parted lips. Asher leans in even closer. His breath tickles my lips.
Asher sits without a sound, waiting for me, wearing his black leather jacket. He opens his strong arms as I fall into them, placing my head on his solid chest. Allowing the scent of smoky wood and leather to assault my nose, a calming fragrance that’s all Asher St. Michael soothes me. The dark stubble on his jawline and chin tangles in my hair, comforting me as the protector bond warms me from the inside.
Asher’s deep, soothing voice is gentle. “Keegan, we’re ready to go to the aircraft.” At his command, I lift my long lashes and notice McKenna’s platinum blonde hair in the front seat next to Keegan. A tiny smile brushes over my lips. I’m safe with the London clan, my protectors.
I curl into the shelter of Asher’s secure arms, and for a brief moment, shut my eyes, internally saying my final goodbyes to my roommate and friend while Asher holds me possessively.
As my eyes reopen, they focus on pink rose petals floating in the icy wind. Thinking it’s a sign from Aria, I glance one last time toward her marble stone marker while Keegan begins to drive at a slow pace out of the cemetery. My eyes widen when I notice both the headstone and flower have vanished.
In their place, Deacon stands among the destroyed white marble, his hand open as the crushed pink flower petals drift in the wind, toward me. I sit up and press my forehead and hand to the glass, fixated on him when my heart rate increases, reaching an abnormal pace.Deacon bestows a sinister smile. As we drive away, he mouths, “It’s just beginning.”
“I found myself so deep in the story, my ipad followed me everywhere I went so I could sneak a second to read a page or two just because I kept thinking about it.” – My Book Boyfriend

Excerpt: I need you to stay calm
I keep going, focused on the tree-lined area in front of me. Just as I get to the path, Asher gently grabs my arm, forcing me to turn around so I’m facing him. Crap, he’s fast.
“What?” I screech, surprised with how quickly he got to me.
“Let me take you back to the dorm. It’s safer than walking through the woods of a college campus when no one is around,” he offers, nodding to the trees.
“Asher, I’ve done this a thousand times. Please let go of me.” I attempt to squirm out of his clutches.
It’s then I realize I’m still wearing his leather jacket. I put my coffee on the ground and move to take it off when a low growl emanates from behind me. I look up at Asher, startled.
His striking face pales and his horrified focus shifts behind me, locking in on the wooded area. In the blink of an eye, he grabs my upper arms, pressing me to his solid chest. Using a voice so low and uptight, I can barely hear him. “I need you to stay calm.” Well, shit, that can’t be good.

THE BIRTH OF THE REVELATION SERIES
As a reader, I’m a huge Paranormal Romance fan. Personally, I love that you can get lost in a book, and be taken on a journey, that pushes the limits of your imagination, and realism, to the point of belief. Mix into the story forbidden love, and angst, and I’m won over.
Over the years, I’ve literally read hundreds of books in this genre. While most have been amazing novels, I was beginning to crave something fresh and new. At one point, it felt like every story I’d picked up was focused on: vampires, werewolves or angels, and though those are some of my favorite storylines, I was becoming burnt out on these categories.
In 2008, I decided to create a new world of paranormal characters and fantasy worlds that had yet to be explored. I began The Revelation Series. I sat down to pen the story by writing the final chapter of the series, first. Then, I worked backwards and created each of the final chapters, to each book. Once each novel had an ending I then composed each book’s beginning. That’s right! Eve and Asher’s fate has been sealed since 2008, and won’t be changing.
Since I had never written a book before, to be honest, I really didn’t know what the pages and words in between the beginnings and endings would reveal. After staring at blank pages for what felt like a lifetime, I decide to put the book down. Life went on. I focused on work, friends, family and being a wife and new mom.
But the story was still there, under my skin, itching to be heard. It would literally wake me up in the middle of the night. The characters voices started as a soft rumbling. A line of dialogue, some witty retort and then at times, full-blown scenes of interaction. All of which, I wrote down, each time I heard them speak to me.
I kept sticky notes in every room, just in case. My husband started to worry about ‘the voices in my head’, but other than an occasional side-glance, he let me flitter about. Never questioning the little yellow squares all over the house with random words on them. Nothing really came of them though.
In 2014, my husband and I decided to move back to Massachusetts after a 15-year stint in California. While moving, I uncovered all my Revelation Series notes and at the encouragement of my husband, friends and family I began to write the story. In less than six months book one, Revelation was born.
It’s an amazing thing, the power of the written word. Words can impact your emotions, teach you things about yourself, take you to new worlds and expand your knowledge far beyond what we experience day-to-day. Hopefully this series will do that for you.
