Author: J.S. Mercier
Genre: Fantasy Romance
Release Date: June 13, 2023
In a world where half of the population possesses magic, Morella Andrews is the first of her kind. Her unique abilities force her to rely on the protection and secrecy of her Union and the federal government to stay safe from people who would seek to use her for their own gain. When their safeguards fail and she’s approached with an offer of employment, no one involved expects her to refuse.
Except she does.
The mysterious “local businessman” won’t take no for an answer, though, so when they resort to a kidnapping attempt her only option is to rely on her new handler, Agent Pierson, to keep her safe. Tall, sexy, and incredibly irritating, Morella can’t figure out if he is disgusted or intrigued by her.
Fate forces them together and the Goddess keeps throwing surprises their way – unfounded judgements and trust issues, old connections, new powers, and the potential for explosive chemistry.
Morella may be a necromancer with unprecedented power, but when death eventually comes for her will she be able to overcome her own?
I’m just a book loving chick that saw a meme one day and made up my own story to go with it. My friends pushed me to write it myself instead of sending the idea to one of my favorite authors, and I eventually gave in.
I admit it, I succumb easily to peer pressure.
I’m a wife, cat mom, and lover of all things spooky and weird – and definitely the type to buy my actual year round home decor at Halloween. I love bright colors and happy things, but I’m obsessed with skulls, German metal, buying cups that I never seem to actually drink out of, and fruit snacks. I’ve been forbidden to watch America’s Funniest Home Videos, or those funny compilations on TikTok, because if I laugh too hard I have panic attacks. I think it’s worth it!
I truly believe that a life without dichotomy isn’t a life worth living. I find beauty in opposing things, especially when they can be combined to make something spectacular. My goal is to celebrate this in my stories, and through doing that celebrate those differences in myself as well.
