The Darkest Day by Britt Bury
ALL-CONSUMING DESIRE . . .
Izel Campbell was raised to believe she is an immortal Fionn with the magical skills fo persuasion. But when she travels to Scotland to visit her ancestral home, Izel discovers that she is actually the world's last living human. Forced to run for her life, Izel crosses paths with Kelvin Kerr, the Campbells' greatest foe-and the most magnificent warrior she has ever seen.
BURNS BRIGHTEST . . .
A thousand-year-old battle chief of the Kerr clan, Kelvin lives only to avenge his father, who died at the hands of the bloody Campbells. Honor demands he kill the Campbell heir, but when he learns that the lovely Izel is both Campbell and human, Kelvin is torn between duty and desire . . .

Aht, aht, ah Pookah,” the creature tsked while wagging his finger. Izel gasped when the sickly palm on her throat squeezed. Kelvin saw red.
The Alp’s yellow flesh was littered with rot and open sores. His eyes and fangs were black, and oozed a foul smelling bile. Kelvin was grateful Izel couldn’t see the grotesque creature at her back. He kept his eyes locked on the Alp’s hands. One flick of his wrist, and the creature could snap Izel’s neck.
Kelvin tensed, his muscles flexed, hand gripping his dagger.
“I know what you’re thinking Pookah, and I’d advise against it,” it hissed, keeping its hideous eyes on Kelvin. “Mmm, I haven’t scented a human this pure in ages.” The Alp bent its head, running its vile tongue up Izel’s neck. Kelvin heard her bite back a cry of horror before her body noticeably began trembling.  
“Let her go, beast,” he warned, “and I promise I will make your death quick.”
The Alp smiled, tar dripping from its fangs. “You call me beast?” Titling its neck, the creature ran its nose along Izel’s cheekbone. “Do you know what kind of company you keep mortal? That,” it lifted his chin at Kelvin, “is a beast.” It inhaled deeply. “The last being I devoured had fifty percent mortal blood. A rare find you know?” It nuzzled her ear. “But you sweetling, I’d wager that you are full human, are you not?”
Kelvin looked into her beautiful eyes. They were glossed over with tears, and the sight of her terror cut his heart in half. An odd feeling came over him. An emotion he’d never experienced in his long, long life. Fear. Not of the Alp as a foe, but of what the Alp currently threatened.
Protect her.



Two Worlds.  One Ancient – One New.
Over vast passages of time, the Grigori would be called many things. In Greece they called them, Vrykolakas. In Romania, Strigoi.
In earlier times, there were others. Other blood-sucking demons, that preyed on the innocent. In ancient Babylonia it was Lilitu and her sistren, who instilled fear among the Babylonians.
In the new world they would go by another name. Vampire.
Two all-powerful – Angel – houses continue to fight a brutal war for supremacy – in the ancient world, and in the new.  The Fallen House of Grigori and the Royal House of Bulguardi.  The prize…  Mortal Souls.
Spanning over centuries, this is a story about love, loss, and betrayal.
The New World – Grace is a little girl struggling to understand the catastrophic events that are forcing their way into her otherwise seemingly normal, if not sometimes, strange world. Haunting visions and untimely deaths of others are a constant reminder that life and death are only a heartbeat away. Grace’s story will indeed leave you asking… Who, When, Where? WHAT!
My name is Juliette. Nine hundred years ago, I died. Today, I am alive…
Paradox – Progeny Of innocence (book 2)
Paradox – Bound By Blood (book 3)
“I have loved and lost in so many different ways. And I have died endless deaths…  So when I ask myself the question today, who am I? My answer is…I do not know.”
Juliette.

 

So what’s it all about, this Paradox Series?  Glad you asked!

The New World.  Grace – A little girl trapped between Heaven and Hell reliving the torturous past of others…
