• Calling For Help

    The Other Beth Somewhere another Beth would change the future of our world, but I knew I wasn’t her. Rubbing the last of the chalk off the pavement I stood. It wasn’t a kind of magic I’d used before, and it was something I’d only tried because Raina believed it was the best option we had. Even if our lives would never be the same again she could do something to stop Max. Breathing in deeply, emotions sweeping through me, I stared out into the darkness, knowing he was out there somewhere. Had I managed to find him sooner… I shook my head. One of my brother’s skills was hiding.…

  • Meeting Willow

    Inheriting A Hotel There were two things Claire noticed as she made her way around the hotel – it was empty of guests, and it was far bigger on the inside than it was on the outside. Knowing the fae the latter was to be expected, but the former was unsettling. Earning a living from something like a hotel meant having guests, although it was possible Bran’s death… the story wasn’t easy to believe, and yet it was one she’d heard so many times. People who’d never thought for a moment they might have fae blood were finding that, actually, something happened in the past that led to it being…

  • Inheriting A Hotel

    It was early, much earlier than Claire would normally wake up on her day off, but her mind kept whirring, making sleep impossible. The letter she received was cryptic, and it became the only thing she could think about, in part because it seemed like the beginning of one of those really awful horror movies. A great-uncle she’d never heard of died, which wasn’t really strange as she had a lot of family she’d never met before, leaving behind a dilapidated hotel she’d apparently inherited, and that was the part she couldn’t understand. Why would someone she’d never met leave her anything in his will? Claire stood at the train…

  • The Unexpected

    An Unexpected Visitor With Eleanor by her side Willow stepped into a little room off the main lab, and turned to look at her. “How are you here?” “Magic?” Eleanor shrugged. “I don’t know how much I can tell you. I don’t know how much is going to affect the reason I’m here. Talking to you, as you aren’t Megan or Scott, probably isn’t as bad, but I don’t know.” “Lovely, start from the beginning. You’re older. I can see that in your eyes. You aren’t the same girl I left three hours ago, working out how she was going to tell her father than she planned on becoming an…

  • An Unexpected Visitor

    A Mistake Of course it was going to be the Wests. Was their magic the reason she’d been sent back in time? Eleanor raked a hand through her hair, walking through corridors in the hope she might be able to find a way out somewhere, although she wasn’t even sure she was going to be able to leave the building. Then she found a door. Breathing deeply, hoping she’d be able to go out, she opened it, and stepped out into a windy day. Looking up at the sky she saw that the grey clouds matched her mood. Feeling a little less out of sorts she made her way towards…

  • A Mistake?

    Going Back In Time Scott watched Eleanor walk away, not fast enough to stop her. Then again he wasn’t sure he would have been able to stop her if he tried. From the way her face had gone white… he shook his head. As one of the fae she was always going to know more about the Wests than he was, but her actions complicated things, because it meant there was something to Jenna’s unexpected departure. Raking a hand through his hair he tried to work out what his next step was going to be. Hearing the sound of footsteps getting closer to him made this even more difficult. How…

  • Going Back In Time

    “We need your help.” The voice echoed around Eleanor, making it impossible to know where exactly it was coming from. She stilled, heart pounding, fear sweeping through her. According to her client the job was an easy one. An exorcism, to rid the building of a trapped spirit, but something about the voice told her they were wrong – and if she hadn’t needed the money she’d have already been out the door. “Lea, we know why you’re here.” “How do you know my name?” Before she could stop herself the words were out. “I don’t know who, or what, you are, but I’m not getting involved.” They, whoever they…

  • Four Hunters

    The Other Treasure Hunters The girl wasn’t an idiot, which was a good sign. Deotis wasn’t a safe world. Everyone knew that. Yet there were four of us who’d made the decision we were going, probably having been hired by the same person. Once I realised there were four of us I knew something was up. It was possible, albeit unlikely, we were going to different worlds, so I waited. Someone would make the move. We were the sort of people who watched more than we acted. Most hunters took their time, thought their plans through, did what made the most sense, and those who didn’t died when they screwed…

  • Learning More

    Talking to Adrianna For a few seconds I just stood there, staring at Niamh, wondering how things had changed so quickly. I walked into the ball with Nate by my side, not believing for a moment my oldest friend might be capable of betraying me. Blinking, unwilling to let any of the tears fall in front of a total stranger, I tried to let it go, to do what needed to be done, to leave the emotion until later. That had never been something I’d been all that great at, and I’d used up most of my willpower to not burst into tears in front of the Duke of West.…

  • The Last Straw

    “Father…” “My decision is made. Letting those children leave would be a mistake.” “They have family out there.”
