• Daniel’s Takeover

    Lucas walked into the room. He was an easy person to spot. The power came off him in waves, being one of the two most powerful people in the House. It wasn’t until she felt him walking toward her Kara looked up, and their eyes met for a moment, as he closed the distance between them. Normally they avoided each other. He’d arrived at a difficult time. It made her cold to him at a time when he needed support, the early days of working through his first experience of being a shifter. Eventually, the way it was always going to happen, someone else arrived, and then Lucas wasn’t alone.…

  • Spellbound

    The bathroom seemed the best place to go. I could feel the spell wrapping around me, and I tried to breathe as it tightened around my rib cage. It wasn’t the easy thing I’d ever had to do. Whatever had been used made me want to curl up on the floor and sleep, but I knew that letting the spell get the better of me was going to be a mistake. Then my cousin would grab me the way he’d been threatening to since he realised what I could do, because he needed me for the next step in his plan to take over the world. Laughing at him when…

  • The Coffee Shop

    To begin with Adrian stood outside, looking through the window of the coffee shop. It was well known as the place where humans with Fae magic went if they hadn’t got into the school, and from what he could see he was beginning to think the Council really had made a huge mistake. He’d already been certain it was a mistake – he just hadn’t know quite how bad it truly was. At least three people had real wings, not just glamoured ones, there were more people with shapeshifter blood in there than he’d ever seen before, and, thanks to his cousin Naida, he could see someone who was part…

  • Introducing James

    Henry Wakes Breathing deeply, knowing that her body wasn’t best pleased with her, Anne realised there was one very important thing she’d forgotten – the arrival of Edward’s child. Putting a little space between her and Henry was easy enough. Slowly, double checking to make sure they weren’t paying too much attention to what she was doing, she stepped towards the door. The likelihood was that whoever it was happened to be outside waiting. After one last look at Henry, busy testing his strength against Charles, she slipped out of the door, to find herself facing another Immortal. “I am so sorry. My mind was entirely focused on Henry, and…

  • Henry Wakes

    The Other Vampire Sleeping had been an impossibility. Anne knew it was going to be, but that hadn’t stopped her from trying. She changed into something different, an old dress she’d only brought with her due to the memories held within in, and tidied her hair. Henry probably wouldn’t wake at sunset exactly and it gave her a little time to get from her room to his in order to be there when it happened. If it happened. The very thought of him being one of the few who didn’t wake seemed so unlikely she shouldn’t be thinking it, although there was a part of her that hoped he might…

  • The Other Vampire

    A Bad Idea It was just before dawn. Anne knew she should be going to bed, to the room they’d set up specially for her, but she hated the thought of leaving Henry when he was sleeping. If she didn’t she have to explain why she wasn’t she simply wouldn’t. Telling everyone immortals only chose to sleep during the day wasn’t the best thing she could do, because it would cause more fear and hatred, so she’d leave that for the right time – if there ever was a right time. Sighing, she slowly started walking in the direction of her room, telling herself Henry’s men would be able to…

  • Belonging to Ace

    Ace had visited the house every night for six months. He’d started on the night of Rebecca’s 18th birthday, and every time he walked in the door he gave her parents a look. She knew the look meant that they were meant to have told her something, but she was glad they hadn’t. There was something about him, probably the whole vampire thing, that terrified her, so the last thing she wanted to hear was that they’d sold her to him. It was something she’d heard stories about, even though she didn’t quite believe they were true, and she really didn’t want the proof to change her life. That night…

  • Losing Someone

    Matt’s side: Arriving On a Saturday morning I always headed over to my boyfriend’s house, because it was the one day we made sure we spent together. He was working, a lot, while I was at college, so it was really the only day we had. There were days when I couldn’t help getting jealous of the girls who had boyfriends at college, who they could see during breaks and at lunch, but it made me all the more grateful for the time we did spend together. We made plans for the future, planning on being together for as long as we loved each other, and as I couldn’t imagine…

  • The Attack

    A hand grabbed my arm. Before I had any real idea what was going on I found myself being tugged outside, by someone I soon realised was a very insistent Blake. Not fighting wasn’t so much a choice, but more something I did purely out of confusion, because being in a place like the convention I was at was more than a little unusual for him. Once we were out he didn’t stop tugging. That, however, was when I stopped letting him tug, instead stopping where I was and staring at him. He turned to look at me then. When his eyes met with mine I could see the mix…

  • An Unexpected Arrival

    Spinning, my eyes met with Leo’s, and I stilled, heart pounding. At first, the music surrounding us loud, all I could do was stare. I had questions – the first one being how he got into the house, because I knew the doors were locked. He, teeth buried in his bottom lip, stared back, his eyes filling with tears. “We chose not to put that song on the album.” One of the tears trickled down Leo’s cheek. “It was one of Connor’s favourites, but there were others we all liked more, and in the end it got cut.” Opening my mouth I realised I had no idea what to say,…
