YA Paranormal Romance
Date Published: 9/18/12

Synopsis: Alexis must pick up the broken pieces of her heart and pull herself together because she has a mission: To awaken the sleeping gods. When she is at the point of giving up, wearing her pretend smiles and feels like there is nothing left of herself, her friend becomes her savior. Patryck helps put Alexis back together again and in return Alexis sees him as something more than a friend… 
Together with her brother, Alex, her father, Edmund, and a team of angels they make their way to Mount Latmos, to awaken the gods. But obstacles are in their way, one of them being Cole, the traitor, the one who shattered Alexis’ heart. 
New friends and family she never thought she would meet will come to aid Alexis.
… And a love will blossom that will redefine the saying, “Love you forever.”


“Ollie, we’ll meet you at the elevators,” he dismisses him from our presence and then takes me into a corridor away from the throng in the lobby.

Before he says anything to me he grabs my purse and turns my cell phone off. 

“How did you…” And before I can finish my question his lips are against mine. I surrender to them without even thinking. I missed this so much. I missed him so much. But he betrayed me!

I push him away from me and raise my arm to slap him but he catches my wrist. “I knew you still loved me.”

“You are wrong! You deceitful, cowardice, jackal! Don’t ever touch me again!” I try to get away from him but his hand tightens on my wrist. “Let go of me, so help me, I will take you down!”

His look darkens and he steps closer to me so that he is right up to my face. I feel his breath caress me as he says, “I look forward to it.”

That’s it! I bring my knee up to his groin but he slaps it away with his free hand and pushes me up against the wall, pushing his body into mine so that I cannot move my legs to kick out at him. With my free hand I grab a handful of his hair and jerk his head back so that he has to fold over and step away from me. He moves his free hand onto my other wrist and tries to free his hair. With his head bent down and my legs free I again knee him but this time in his face. His head jerks up after the impact but he still doesn’t free his hands from my wrist. He throws me back into the wall and I try to slide away from him but only manage to land us both on the floor with him on top of me. 

He now has both of my wrists pushed against my chest and is straddling my legs so that I cannot move. A triumphant smile plays on his lips as he looks down on me. 

“Oh, how I have missed you, Lexi.” The demon toys with me.

“Get off me or I will scream until everyone in the lobby is surrounding us and hauling you off to jail.” I squirm underneath him, trying to find some way to break through.

“It would be so worth it,” he says but obliges and lets me go. 

I really want to knock him on his ass at this moment but don’t want to give him anymore enjoyment in touching him. I stomp off in the direction of the elevators and Ollie waiting patiently.
