A secret ancient race of humans with fantastical abilities, the Vadïm are on the brink of extinction. Many of their women are imprisoned by an organization known as The Assembly, their history all but lost . . .
Devon Monroe has been a prisoner her entire life. She’s determined to make sense of the strange markings on her body, to learn why no one may touch her, to find where she belongs. That means escaping into the unknown, where she has no choice but to trust her self-appointed protector.
Soldier for hire Seth Eastman has a job to do: deliver Devon to safety. When Seth discovers the markings on Devon’s body, he’s stunned at what it means. And at how she awakens his long-suppressed needs. As they struggle to escape detection and search for the truth of the Vadïm, can he ever hope to claim her for his own?
He’d thought all along that Noah’s plan to intercept her was a piss poor idea. He’d known it was going to be dangerous, that there was risk and he accepted that, embraced it even. After all, the pay was phenomenal. Now the stakes might be higher than he could have ever imagined but he couldn’t let that distract him, couldn’t let her distract him. He needed to stay focused.
He slid the phone back into his pocket, walked back toward her. “We have to get moving after I—”
“That’s it?” She frowned. “That’s all you’re going to say? I don’t know who, or what you are, or why you’re doing this exactly, but if it fails, I’m gone. Forever. Do you understand that?”
Seth bristled at the tone, leaned down to her and fought to keep his voice calm, even. “And do you understand your half-assed plan to hike out to civilization and simply ‘disappear’ had a zero probability of success? Zero.” He straightened. “Look—”
“No, you look. Lame or not, this is my one chance. My only chance. I won’t get another. Ever. If they catch me, no one will ever see or hear of me again.” Her voice cracked. “It’ll be like I never was.”
Q: What would you like readers to know about the book before they read it?
A: Mmm. It’s book 1 in a new series called Fabric of Fate. While there’s a hero and heroine for each of the books, there’s an overall story arc that lasts 5 books. It might help readers to know the premise that lays the foundation for the entire series:
• What if there was an ancient, secret race of humans on the brink of extinction? A race that had fantastical abilities? A race that might disappear before most people even knew they ever existed?
• What if their history and culture had been systematically targeted and destroyed? That those that were left didn’t even know the basics about their own heritage?
• What if a handful of their men, against incredible odds, had somehow managed to find each other, but to save their race they must regain their hope and learn to trust each other?
• What if everything they’d ever believed about themselves was only the beginning?
Welcome to the world of the Vadïm…
Q: What do you hope readers will take with them after they’ve read the book?
A: A thirst for more? Considering this is book 1 of a new series, I hope I’ve satisified the readers enough with the hero and heroine’s relationship in this book, but generated a need to know more about the Vadïm and their cause, their quest. And their fight for survival.
Q: Who is your favorite character in this book?
A: Hands down it’s Seth. I’m an alpha hero kinda girl all round and he pushes all my happy romance reading buttons.
Q: Is there a character who gives you fits and makes you want to go ninja?
A: LOL. Actually, there is. I’m currently doing edits on book 2 of the Fabric of Fate series (Renewal of Trust) and the hero is definitely giving me fits. Micah appeared on the surface to be more easy going, a bit of a goof ball, certainly more charming than Seth for instance ;), but as I’ve dug deeper, he has hidden depths. And he’s oh so stubborn. But I will win in end end. I always do!
Q: You may have noticed we like to include our favorite quote in our reviews of the books we read. What is your favorite quote from this book?
A: You know, asking for a favorite quote is kinda like asking which of your children is your favorite LOL. This does not mean I didn’t love each and every one of the others, okay? I just had to go with something from Seth:
“I’m dangerous at the best of times, Noah,” he bit out. “Paranoid, ruthless, volatile, and you know it.”
Oh. Yeah. I know it :).
Q: What’s up next for you?
A: Writing. Editing. Writing. Some promotion. Writing. Some more editing. Attend a conference here and there. That’s the plan anyway. I’m finishing up book 2 of this series, working on book 3 and also working on a couple of hot and steamy contemporary romances! Ah, the life of a writer.
