 Rules. Balance. Consequences. War.

When Fate gave Dane the water from Eden to drink, she did more than save his life. She changed his destiny.

Since the beginning, a compact between God and Lucifer has maintained a tenuous peace, balancing Soulkeepers and Watchers and the natural order of things. Dane upset that balance the day he became a Soulkeeper. Fate broke the rules.

Now, Lucifer is demanding a consequence, requiring Fate to pay the ultimate price for her involvement. God intervenes on the immortal’s behalf but in order to save her soul must dissolve the compact and with it the rules, order, and balance that have kept the peace. A challenge is issued. A contest for human souls begins. And the stakes? Earth. Winner take all.

The Soulkeepers are at the center of a war between Heaven and Hell, and this time, nobody, anywhere, is safe from Lucifer’s reach.
“Hello, Abigail.” The velvet smooth voice lassoed her shoulders, stopping her short.
She turned to face her enemy. At first the man’s attire, a double-breasted suit with Italian loafers, threw her. Very human. But then she noticed his eyes matched the deep navy blue, almost purple color of his tie. A Watcher, for sure. Human beings didn’t have eyes that color or noses that straight. He twisted the gold, lion’s head ring on his manicured finger.
Lucifer was the Lord of Illusions, and his followers boasted similar talents, but under it all, Abigail knew the Watcher’s skin and blood were black as tar. “How is your illusion so strong during the day?” she spat, nervously. Distraction was her only hope.
“Well fed.”
“Who are you? I deserve to know who Lucifer sent for me.”
“You don’t remember me, Abigail? That hurts. We were once very close.”
A deadly smile crossed his full lips, and he smoothed a hand over his meticulously styled black hair. Abigail tried to place his voice, but in her human form all she could sense was the illusion. Worse, the smell of freshly baked cinnamon rolls had filled the maple grove. His sorcery drew her in, luring her, a fly to the spider’s web. The smell triggered a memory of a long ago day, before Lucifer had become jealous of God and led the Watchers to fall from grace.
This Watcher had chosen an illusion not far from his appearance as an Angel. Abigail shook her head. Lucifer must be serious about her capture to send his right hand man. “Cord.”
He took a step closer. “Good girl. I see your senses haven’t completely dulled with your humanity. Now come, Lucifer is waiting.”
Abigail took a step back, dropping into the fighting stance Lillian had taught her.  She wasn’t completely defenseless. She’d learned the martial arts basics Lillian insisted all of them learn. Cord took another step toward her, and she whipped her knife from her boot. “I think it’s you who have lost your senses, Cord, if you think for a second I’m coming with you willingly.”

5 Ways to be a Soulkeeper this Holiday


It seems like only yesterday I was releasing the first book in my Soulkeepers series. Releasing book 5 is almost surreal. As I prepare to complete the series, I’m reminded of what it means to be a Soulkeeper and how thankful I am for the real-life Soulkeepers out there. Here are five ways you can be a Soulkeeper this holiday season.


  1. Bell Ringing- two hours of your time could go a long way toward raising funds for the Salvation Army, an organization that houses and feeds the most vulnerable among us. It’s fun, easy, and the Salvation Army makes it simple to sign up for a slot. Visit this site for more information .
  2. Collect and Donate – Coats for the homeless and cans for the food drive are things you might do every year, but don’t forget your local Humane Society. Homeless dogs and cats need love too. Many times humane societies need used towels and blankets for the care of the animals. (Call yours first to check for their specific needs.)
  3. Deck the Halls- Many retirement home residents don’t have family and often the home itself can’t afford the time or expense of decorating. Check with your local hospitals and convalescent homes for opportunities to use your crafty talents to spread the holiday cheer.
  4. Provide, Cook, or Serve a Meal- Chances are your local mission has opportunities to help with serving meals this holiday. Usually you have the choice of donating toward the cost of the meal, helping to cook, or serving the residents.
  5. Reach out – To the person in your life that needs a friend. Charity starts at home. Think about the neighbor or family member most in need of compassion and offer it. Sometimes just extending an invitation to dinner can make a huge difference.


There’s no better way to relax after a day of charitable giving than with a good book! I’m so excited to bring you this installment in the series. I hope you will find some time to enjoy Lost Eden.
Thanks for stopping by!
