Kay’s journey of a lifetime started in the woods outside of Asheville, North Carolina. It was there that the 17 year old met a beautiful man along with a monster. The chance encounter led her to an unbelievable world that shouldn’t exist; a place where myths and fairy tales were real, and in some cases, deadly. Kay knew she would have to brave this new world if she hoped to find a cure for her terminal cancer.
With a strange yet beautiful cast of characters that she would meet along the way, Kay uncovered truths that would change her life forever. However, before it was all over, it would become clear that Kay wasn’t the only one with problems.
Yet another 17 year old young woman was fighting for her freedom and her life.Kira had lived in a magical world that Kay had only dreamt of. Despite this, her life had not been filled with many good things. As a matter of fact, she considered her empty, emotional solitude the only positive aspect of her life. She fought daily battles to escape abuse and torture.
Trained to be an expert assassin, she was charged with kidnapping Kay and delivering her to Kira’s master, Lord Donovan.
As the two young women set forth in their journeys, their paths would cross in unimaginable ways. The only question that would remain was who would come out alive and whole in the end?

WARNING: This is a upper ya/young adult/new adult fictional story that includes some explicit language, graphic violence, and mild sexual situations. Recommended for ages sixteen and up.







Leaving the safety of my room, I glanced back at it. No sense in trying to secure the door. No lock existed that would keep anything here out, and until I came into my powers by my birthday, I had no magick to help me either.

Angry at everything and at no one in particular, I strode purposely down the hall and headed for the kitchens. Winding through the estate’s corridors, I kept a constant watch for signs of the other inhabiting faeries or redcaps. I certainly didn’t feel like dealing with their nasty attitudes at the moment, especially if they were hungry, too. They might momentarily forget that I was Lord Donovan’s little pet and try to eat me. I wondered if all the courts were like this, always wondering when something bigger and meaner would come by and try to pick you off. Somehow, it just didn’t seem right to live this way, even though this was all I’d ever known.

Nearing the end of the hall, lost in the loud, angry thoughts whirling in my head, I started to dream of something better for myself. Maybe I could just leave one night. Travel to the edges of one of the other courts and live in the woods off the land. Become a solitary Fae.

Just as the thought settled my ill-tempered mood, I was snatched by the back of my neck and pulled backwards into a small, dark alcove off the main corridor. The strong hand tightly gripped my slender neck, cutting off my air supply. Then, seconds later, my back was slammed into the wall. My arms were pinned behind my back, and another large, solid body pressed roughly against my own. Perhaps others would not have been able to see anything in the darkness, but my eyesight was exceptional.

I glared into Cole’s face. He peered down at me, smiling tauntingly, his violet eyes glowing with angry energy. I did my best to turn away from his eyes, but only got a margin to the side. It didn’t deter him; he sniggered at my attempt and held his nose and mouth to the side of my turned face, inhaling my scent.

“Kira, Kira, Kira. My lovely, little Kira.” Cole tightened his grip on my throat and ground the lower half of his body against my own. I felt bile rise up my throat when I realized that he was aroused. “How I have waited to catch you off-guard.”


Crystal and Melissa often live half their lives with their heads in the clouds dreaming of alpha military hunks, werewolves and kick ass heroines crazy enough to chase after creatures that they unquestionably should know better than to chase.

Their first YA novel, The Burning Star, was released in May 2012. Big Bad Bite is their second novel, but their first adult paranormal romance. They are now working on their next two novels, Walk On The Striped Side and Secret Maneuvers. With these projects underway, they are looking forward to showing the rest of the world their crazy stories, heroes and heroines that often plague their minds until written, and hope you will join them on their journey!
