Excerpt #1:

Licinia watched the kiss from her vantage point atop the McKinney rooftop. Disgust and jealousy burned like venom beneath her skin. For days, she had been trying to figure out what he saw in the McKinney girl, but she just didn’t get it. She was so plain, so ordinary, so human, a sad excuse for a witch.
Licinia watched as the silly girl practically skipped out of Jared’s car and into her home. Using her supernatural senses, she could hear as Brianna ascended the steps and closed the door to her bedroom. Licinia effortlessly levitated two floors above the ground, hovering outside Brianna’s window. The dope was curled up in bed cuddling her dumb stuffed tiger. Licinia smirked, and touched the window frame. It was a shame that she couldn’t come inside without an invitation. Without stupid vampire limitations, Brianna would have never seen the morning light. Although it wouldn’t be tonight, the time would come. Brianna would pay.
Jared deserved someone so much better. Someone stunning,charming, sophisticated, charismatic, and powerful. It was a tall order, but Licinia knew someone who fit the bill. She would have Jared.
For decades, Licinia had studied the prophecies. She was prepared for war. When the time came, she wanted her man at her side. Where she could stand beside him as his queen, and they could rule together, in darkness.

Excerpt #2:

Brianna’s eyes felt as big as saucers. “What’s it like?”

Jared took a deep breath. “It’s like…magic. I’d rather show you than tell you.”

She hesitated. “I don’t know.”

"Do you trust me?" Brianna searched his eyes and was captured by his gaze.

"Yes." She meant it.

"Then come with me."

The air beside her began to glimmer, every shade of every color emerging in the black of the night. An immense oval of colorful lights were suspended in midair, as if thousands of glowing gems had been melded together. Jared took her hand. “Come inside,” he said.

Brianna took a deep breath and then stepped into the sparkles.
