How can you outrun a past that you don’t remember?

Get ready for a phenomenal story that will leave you with one question…
Is he real?

When Elizabeth returns to the Estate, a place where many people have been found dead and where she felt a ghostly presence years ago, she discovers the true secret of the old, gothic dwelling… a seductive spirit that has been waiting years just for her.

Excerpt:
I tried to push him away, but my arms felt heavy. All I wanted was for him to kiss me, to make love to me, to be the woman he thought I was. But I wasn’t her…

You are her, a voice inside me said with conviction.

I knew he was some kind of monster. I was terrified. He had never touched me beyond the courtesies expected in public, but it had been apparent in his tone that was going to end tonight.

Cohabiting with a polite monster was one thing… bedding one was quite another. My first thought was to flee. But the servants that manned the doors were all his people, ones that could see with his eyes. Damien had grown unbelievably strong these past months. There would be no escape… for me.

I undressed and waited for him in bed, shivering. In a few moments, he entered, then came to stand beside the bed, where he began undressing.

The human that had been my husband had been a drunk, and his body had reflected that. But the new Damien rarely imbibed in smoke or drink, and never ate to excess. I had noticed that his suits had changed in that time, and not just in the expensiveness of their cloth. The proof was there before me in naked flesh, smooth muscle having replaced flaccid fat. Lust at once washed through my heart, and I averted my eyes.

Dark Angel: Crime of Passion

Book Cover by Chloe Belle Arts for Dark Angel by K. Lyn Kennedy

Click to Purchase

“You fell in love with a mortal, didn’t you?”

Romanus watched from a distance as the beautiful manor burned to the ground. He knew that Demitri, the dark angel, was responsible. He was always responsible for crimes of passion in the region. Demitri is an evil genius. Romanus knew that better than anyone. When a young mortal named Phoenix arrives in his hometown with Bailey, the woman he is in love with, Demitri is waiting. He has plans for the mortal couple. He needs to cover up a mistake he made, and a human sacrifice will do just fine.

Excerpt:
Demitri emerged from a brine of large bubbles as he took mortal form. He looked at the humongous black and grey clouds in the sky, all coming from Gorgie Manor, and smiled. He was responsible for all of it… one of his better accomplishments. But he noticed that Romanus wasn’t happy.

Fingers ran through Romanus’ hair. Demitri loved to care for angels who were sad. It aroused him. He brought the darkness, and he could take it away.

Romanus shook his head. “I didn’t want this,” he said, pointing at the smoke.

“I had to make sure he was gone for good,” Demitri said.

“How can you say that?”

“The mortal who lived in that house was trying to take something from me, and I couldn’t let that happen. He was a threat,” Demitri said.

“You fell in love with a mortal, didn’t you?”

Demitri refused to answer.

“When did it happen? Did it involve the couple in the cabin?”

The Game Master of Somerville

The Game Master
Unable to resist a mystery, Jerry uncovers an on-line gaming site referring to a ‘secret place’ for young people who feel they don’t fit in and a game master who promises them a world where they will belong. When the daily news headline reads, “Pritchett, James (31), Murderer, Escapes from Prison,” Jerry’s mind begins to race, and after a bit of research, he finds more about the elusive Mr. Pritchett. Guilty of murdering the Watts family, he escaped prison and was last seen not far from the city of Somerville. But is the escaped prisoner the game master?

Excerpt:
“What’s this game?” I pointed at the name, “The Clash of Magic and Swords?”

“Beats me,” said Justin. Nick shook his head as well.

“It’s an on-line multi-player strategy game,” said Kate. “It has a lot of fantasy elements in it.”

“People play on-line games,” said Justin. “There’s nothing weird about it.”

He was right. “Look for something else,” I said. I wanted to find something important on Will’s laptop, something that would give us a hint about who had taken him or if he was in contact with someone.

There were pages where Will talked about going out on his own and finding a ‘secret place’ to share with his friends, especially Stephen. I read one of the entries to myself. It was written about six months ago. “I wish I could find a place, a place I could call my own. I would be surrounded by my friends and we would play as long as we wanted. Maybe someday I’ll find it and then I’ll go there.” I read the rest of the pages. William sounded obsessed with finding his own ‘secret place.’ I read an entry that was made a month ago. “I think I’ve found it. Stephen and I came to know about it around the same time. I can’t wait to go there. He said he’ll take both of us. I’m so excited. We are Orphans of the World!”

“Who’s he?” I asked myself. At first I thought it was Stephen, but re-reading the last line again told me there was a third person involved.

*****

“A Clash of Magic and Swords,” she answered enthusiastically. “I made a lot of friends through this. Have you heard of it?” she asked.

“No…I…” and then I remembered. I had seen the game in both Stephen’s and Will’s history when I was in their rooms. Stephen played the game on his laptop while Will played it on his desktop computer. My mind felt as if it was trying to tell me something but I couldn’t make out what.

“Can you find out how many people in Somerville play this game?” I asked.

Ana nodded at me. “The game has all kinds of stats in it,” she said. “You can know more about the game from here,” she answered, opening a menu for me.

“Thanks,” I said. I looked at the menu in front of me. It had all sorts of information. The final version of the game was made available to the public six months ago. According to the statistics, Ana’s profile showed more than a hundred players from Somerville. There was also a list of different teams or guilds players could join.

My eyes noticed the guild named “Orphans Of The World.”

“That’s a very powerful guild,” said Ana. “It’s very exclusive.”

“Can you show it to me?” I asked.

“We do not belong here. Our place is below the sun and moon. Those of you who wish to join, come open the circle to our world.”

Missing in Somerville

New Adult Murder Mystery

New Adult Murder Mystery

The beautiful young bride of the town’s wealthiest man has been missing for several months and rumors of her whereabouts are rampant. Some speak of murder at the hands of her husband. Others claim that the young beauty died at the hands of a jealous ex-boyfriend. She could have run away, but why would a woman throw away a life of luxury? When a group of friends begin to search for her, they quickly discover that their lives are in danger by those determined to keep the woman’s whereabouts unknown.

Excerpt:
I inserted the key into the key hole and opened the front door. Without a word, Ash and I walked inside. The hall was huge and decorated with expensive looking furniture, and decoration pieces made of crystal lined the shelves. Pictures of Nigel’s forefathers hung on the walls. The people in the pictures had an air of importance around them, similar to Nigel’s.

“You look downstairs,” I told Ash. “I’ll go and check upstairs. Meet you back here in a few minutes.”

“What am I supposed to look for?” Ash asked in a whisper.

“Don’t know,” I answered. I wasn’t even sure what to look for myself.

I began ascending the huge staircase. A huge portrait of Mr. Nigel and Devona greeted me at the landing. They looked happy to me. Nigel looked less serious and arrogant and Devona was beautiful in a pink gown. Giving the picture another look, I walked to my left and opened the door to a bedroom. I opened the drawer next to the bed and found a photo album full of pictures from Nigel’s and Devona’s wedding. The more I looked, the more their marriage appeared as if it had been a private affair. The entire photo album showed only the bride and her groom.

*****

It took me a few minutes to realize that I was bound to a chair. “People know that I’m here,” I yelled at him.

He didn’t seem to listen and gently stroked Devona’s long blonde hair. I looked around the attic. Jars filled with red liquid lined the wall behind Devona. I noticed my cell phone near her chair smashed into pieces.

“Why?” I asked as I tried to loosen my hands.

“Devona is special,” he said, and I watched him pick up a syringe from a table. “My master told me that.”

“Who is your master?” I asked. He has gone totally crazy.

“Shut up!” he yelled at me. “Do not speak of my master with your filthy mouth.”

I tried to move my feet, but they were bound as well. I turned my head. There wasn’t anything sharp in my reach either. I needed to escape from this place.

“It was my master’s doing,” he said, pouring the blood into a jar.

I noticed that the attic door behind me was open. If only I could move the chair a little. I slowly began to push the chair toward the attic stairs.

“Stop!”

I was grabbed by my hair and couldn’t catch my balance.

“You imbecile!” he yelled. “My master will be proud to hear that you are dead,” he said, and I saw him raise the knife.

Arousing the Legacy

Young Adult Paranormal Mystery

Young Adult Paranormal Mystery

The man who came to Colville knew there was something unique about the young men he was ordered to observe. They had been able to ward off a curse and survive a vampire attack. The man had spent most of the day observing the town and keeping an eye on the young men. One of them was ill and the man knew why. The other one had no idea he was being followed, but as far as the man was concerned, he was a below average werewolf at best. Still, there had to be a reason for a vampire to show up in Colville, other than creating two werewolf slaves.

Arousing the Legacy centers around the small town of Colville which appears to have been chosen by a paranormal power for a very deliberate purpose. It is up to a small group of friends to discover what that purpose is and why their town was chosen, all while encountering vampires, werewolves, and zombies, and fearing for their lives. But could one of their own be among the paranormal?

Excerpt:
The woman could hear the two young men perfectly and she was trying hard not to turn around. ‘Mere mortals,’ she thought as she walked. One of them wolf whistled and the woman stopped walking.

“I think that bombshell heard you.”

“You think she will come back to spank me?” Cory asked in a flirty voice as he passed his hand through his brown hair. “I’m all for it, if she does.”

The woman clenched her fists. “I don’t know, Cory,” laughed the boy. The two of them smiled as they watched the woman walk toward them. “I got this,” said Cory as he stood up straight. The woman stopped in front of them and they smiled at her. “So,” began Cory. He took a step toward her. He could smell leather and perfume. “You looking for something exciting to…” Cory yelled as he felt the pain.

“Hey, you psycho!” yelled Dave as he took hold of her arm. He tried to pull her away but couldn’t. The woman gave a smile and her eyes turned from blue to red as Dave stood still in fear. “What…what are you?”

“Don’t tell me you guys won’t play with me now?” asked the woman sweetly. “Now what to do with you both?” she asked. She loved playing with her food. She was about to kill them when she smelled something…her partner. He would never allow her to have fun on the job. She knew he was close even if she couldn’t see him. He was an expert in hiding and if he had allowed her to catch his scent, it meant that he wanted her to notice him.

“You are no fun,” she said. She knew he could hear him. She let go of the two young men and they fell to the ground, still in pain. She rolled her eyes at them and walked away. A few seconds later she watched as a black car came to a halt.

“Get in,” said a tall black haired man from inside of the car. The woman rolled her eyes and sat down in the passenger’s seat.

“Why did you stop me?” she asked as she looked at the houses they drove past.

Intentions

Mystery/Romance

Mystery/Romance

Kevin had the best of intentions when he fell in love with Yvette, but he was a young musician at the time and naïve to the ways of the world. Yvette was the daughter of a former KGB officer whose intentions were self-serving and hedonistic. When Kevin is invited to showcase his prized group of musicians at Cyber World, a new theme park eerily designed by Yvette’s father, he fears that he may have been led into an international trap. He also realizes that one of his musicians may be his only way out of his former lover’s clutches, but can he put the young woman in danger to save himself? His intentions may be good, but the road to hell was paved with good intentions.

Excerpt:
“Beautiful, isn’t it?”

Rachel jumped and held onto the balcony. “Maestro?”

“Didn’t mean to scare you, Rachel.”

Rachel took a deep breath. Had she been so preoccupied that she didn’t hear Mr. Scarsdale enter the room? It was if the man had appeared from nowhere. Kevin walked back into the room and Rachel slowly followed behind him.

“Where’s Charlotte?”

“She was reassigned. You will be staying here alone. You don’t mind, do you, Rachel?” The look he gave her frightened her.

“No, I don’t mind.”

He left the room and Rachel lay down on the bed. She was tired. A few minutes later Maestro entered her room again.

“Do you have a key to my room?”

“Yes, Rachel, I do.”

******

Rachel sat quietly beside Maestro as the taxi made a sharp turn, nearly capsizing, and entered a narrow waterway. When the boat emerged, music played from large speakers in the shape of thumb drives and the flashing CyB sign dwarfed them. The two of them stepped into what could be described as an eerie world of the future. With buildings of shiny steel and fake clouds hovering above them to represent cloud computing, Cyber World looked like it belonged on the set of a horror film. To Rachel’s right was a restaurant that looked like the inside of one of the very first computers.

“Walk with me, Rachel.”

Rachel turned her attention to Maestro and they walked through what appeared to be a timeline of sorts of cyber technology from the advent of the internet to present day. Only one ride was going, a rollercoaster with each car in the shape of a computer mouse.

“What do you think, Rachel?”

Rachel stared at Maestro. “I guess it’s not what I was expecting.”

The sinister laughter made Rachel cringe. “Nothing ever is, my dear.”

Colville – The Cold

Paranormal Mystery

Paranormal Mystery

When a group of friends come upon a car crashed into a tree, they are surprised to find that the woman inside is alive. She tells the group that she and her co-worker had been filming the abandoned Singleton residence for a news report when it grew cold inside the house. They left, and walked toward the swamp not far from the abandoned abode. The swamp was frozen, with thinner ice in places and frozen footprints emanating from the swamp and going into the forest…human footprints. Thinking that the prints were made by kids as a joke, the two reporters followed them and noticed what appeared to be an animal or a human zoom into the trees. Assuming that the creature was hiding, the man approached it, and the couple found themselves surrounded by bodies staring at them. The news duo turned and ran back to their car, where they found another creature preventing them from getting away. The creature grabbed the man’s neck as the woman screamed and watched helplessly as the creature dragged her co-worker into the forest… The group of friends are mesmerized by the woman’s story and they set out to solve the mystery.

Excerpt:
It was a cold night and a figure was walking towards the swamp, treading so lightly that it made no footprints. It was if the figure was floating, barely touching the ground. It went through the trees, its pale face coming in and out of the moonlight as it walked below the branches overhead. The swamp came into view and it stopped an inch away from the frozen layer of murky water. It turned around. No one was following her. She had made certain of that when she froze the rocks outside the hole in the cave. Satisfied, she stepped onto the frozen layer of ice covering the surface of the swamp. She knew it would not break. She had made herself light enough to walk on it. She looked up at the dark sky and rested her gaze upon the moon shining above her. She lifted her arms as if to fly and began whispering in a language as old as time. She knew the words well. She had recited the incantations before and now she was whispering them again.

The air became cold and the leaves of the trees began to rustle. She heard a howl from somewhere far away. Why was she doing this? Why was she putting her friends in danger? She did not know. All she knew was that there was some higher power making her do it all and it wanted more. It wanted revenge and it wanted it now. At first she had tried to resist the calling, but she was too weak, and she could not fight it. She didn’t want to fight it. Her whispering became louder and the ice around her began to crack. She saw something deep inside the swamp start to break the ice from below. The air around her became heavy, as if someone was there with her, a sinister unseen presence. She did not stop and began to whisper her incantations faster. The sheet of ice gave way and a decayed hand broke the surface of the water.

Colville – The Swamp

Paranormal Mystery

Paranormal Mystery

A trip to a swamp believed to be haunted is intriguing to Anya and her friends, but when they arrive at their campsite they sneak away from the group to check out the swamp before the others. What they find is disturbing, to say the least. The pale, yellow green water looks sickening and there are bodies in the swamp. After this discovery, along with moans in the night, the rumors of a haunted swamp and the zombies within it are a little more believable.

Excerpt:
“The swamp, according to my knowledge, is haunted,” said Cassandra, adjusting her hood. “It is said that many years ago the people in the forest lived happily, but one day because of a heavy downpour, the lake, which is now the swamp, flooded, drowning the people. It is said that every fifty years the people of the swamp, the ones who drowned, come out as swamp monsters and hunt for living flesh. They capture people and drag them down into the swamp with them, not to wake up again for another fifty years.”

“Creepy,” said Susan, rolling a strand of her hair around her finger. Curious, she searched for some more newspapers or any article regarding the disappearances. Going through some links, she found a site telling about a downpour occurring in the area where the swamp was located. “September 1855,” read Susan. “A heavy rainfall occurred near the quiet town of Colville, flooding a lake and drowning most of the inhabitants living near the forest.” The idea of a haunted swamp was intriguing to her.

******

They went deeper into the forest. Anya looked at the huge trees and began to get an eerie feeling. The swamp was huge and it looked sinister. The pale, yellow green water looked sickening. Tying her hair into a knot, she inched closer. Reaching the swamp, she looked into it. The water seemed still. She strained harder and then screamed. The rest of the group came towards her.

“What happened?”

“There are bodies in there,” she whispered, closing her eyes.

Looking at each other, both Tabitha and Cassandra bent down to take a look.

“She’s right,” said Tab, getting back up and trying to remain calm. “I just saw a face in there.”

Colville – The Secret

Paranormal Mystery

Paranormal Mystery

When four friends explore a nearby cave, something very strange, a transformation of sorts, begins to occur in one of them. Soon afterward, he leaves town, but while he is away a creature of some type begins killing at random, feeding off of his victims like a werewolf. Determined to find the killer, the group of friends set out on a quest that leads them to an unlikely source and into a well designed trap for which they are not prepared.

Excerpt:
It was a cold night and an old man was walking down the street that led to the town’s pub. “Who’s there?” the man asked. He had heard some sharp steps behind him. The old man spun around and saw a cloaked figure coming towards him. The man quickened his pace. When he looked back, the figure was catching up with him. The old man made a quick turn, went into an alley, and hid behind a dustbin. He wanted to confront the person but he couldn’t. The very air seemed to be inflicting fear into his body. The figure stopped in the parking lot a little ahead of the alley. The old man closed his eyes, wishing that whoever it was would leave him alone. The figure turned and floated towards the old man. The old man’s heart began to beat faster. He wanted to yell, to call out for help, but no sound came from his mouth. With determination, he got up and ran away, but the alley he was in was a dead end. He had nowhere else to run. There was no way he could climb the brick wall in front of him.

Another attack had taken place but this time in Colville.

******

The four of them had reached the butcher’s shop and they all went in.

“Good day, George,” said Susan as she smiled at the butcher.

“Same to you, miss,” the man smiled back.

Everything was going the same way it always did. Anya was looking outside from the shop’s windows as people passed by. Eric was examining the scales placed on one of the shelves. Carl should have been with Eric, telling him to get a new socially acceptable hobby, but this time around Carl was looking at a very large piece of meat placed on the counter. He slowly walked towards it. The smell was unbearable. It was attracting Carl and he watched as his own hands picked up the meat.

“Carl, what the…!” yelled Eric.

Carl looked at him and then at the piece of raw meat into which he was biting. He threw it away in disgust, his mouth full of blood.

“Come on,” said Eric, and he walked Carl out of the shop.

Susan paid the shocked butcher. “He hasn’t been feeling well,” she said as the butcher forced a smile. “Anyway, thank you for the meat, George.”

Anya looked at Susan and both of them walked out of the shop without saying a word to each other.
