A to Z Challenge: Intentions

Ryan and Nick are back. I just love the little scenes with them, because they have a very complicated relationship. And of course, Ryan's desire to protect Aleria makes things so much worse for them.

About the Book

First, do no harm.” Blake Ryan swore that oath to become a doctor. Ironic, given that he spent most of his thousand year life sucking souls out of other immortals.

Things are different now. Using regular shots of morphine to keep his inner monster at bay, Ryan has led a quiet life since the Second World War. His thrills now come from saving lives, not taking them.

Until a plane crash brings Aleria into his hospital. Her life is vibrant. Crack to predators like him. She’s the exact sort of person they would hunt, and thanks to a severe case of amnesia, she’s all but defenseless.

Leaving Aleria vulnerable isn’t an option, but protecting her means unleashing his own inner monster. Which is a problem, because his inner monster wants her dead most of all.

Coming out on 30 April

Pre-order now at:


  1. It would definitely be a challenge to have someone trying to protect you who seemed to be doing the opposite or making things worse. :)

  2. Good intentions only matter if one follows through.

  3. I love those little scenes with them, too. :)

  4. Questioning his own motives, scary!
    Happy Monday!

  5. He doesn't seem to be trusting himself too much... we'll have to see how that works out xox

  6. I don't think this is going to go smoothly!

  7. That inner monster must not be let loose!

  8. I have some characters like that. Their scenes can be a blast to write.

  9. Sounds challenging for him, she's probably beautiful too. How do you write your way out of that?

  10. Oooh, I'm just loving these snippets! I've read all the way through to here and I'd comment on every one but my computer is SO SLOW and I'm afraid if I opened them all, it would crash! You're revealing just enough to tantalize but NOTHING important is being let out of the bag. These are so good! Well done! <3

  11. Intentions sure are tricky. Blake may be doing his best, but as they say, "The road to hell is paved with good intentions." ;)

  12. Have to watch those so called good intentions

  13. Hi Misha! Endless sounds intriguing, Just got your post finished for May. Looking forward to hosting you and wishing you many happy sales!

  14. No good deed goes unpunished indeedie.

  15. Intentions are so hard to guess! And I think that makes a plot more interesting. like misunderstandings arising out of it. An interesting snippet.
