Elijah closed his eyes and misted. Kion’s instruction had related directly to her “friends,” and if The Order hadn’t known about his involvement with Harvey, they could have missed the intentional threat. All the males had realized at the same time of Kion’s objective to get near Emilia, and Elijah knew instantly that Kion had no intention of divulging the whereabouts of Tarrant and Gideon. Elijah appeared directly behind the male in case he turned. Shock gripped him as Kion misted in front of his eyes.
Tobias stopped and shot a glance around the room. There was no sign of the male, but that wasn’t to say he couldn’t just appear anywhere. Tobias turned and glared at Jenson. He saw the horror on Jenson’s face. The male had known the reaction he would create by threatening the female, and it had drawn them away from Emilia. She was in danger now that she was alone on the other side of the room.
Jenson’s heart stopped as he turned. Emilia stood vulnerable, and he ran rapidly, scaling the small table in front of him. Terror tore through him as he watched Kion materialize directly behind her. As the male grabbed Emilia around the waist, he roared out as Kion lifted her from her feet. Jenson landed on two feet, blinded by his need to reach his mate and grab her.
“If you come near, I will snap her neck. If you mist near me, then she will take her last breath,” Kion announced loudly as he stepped backward and wrapped his hand around Emilia’s throat.
“Release her,” Jenson demanded as Elijah misted directly beside him.
“What is it you want?” Elijah asked, gazing into Emilia’s terrified eyes.
“The females and the list. I want them brought here,” Kion said coldly.
“Release her now!” Jenson roared. Pain tore through him as he stared at his female.
“Jenson. Step back. Tell the others to move to the back of the room. When I release my power, it will travel outward, and when it does, search in his mind. He’ll not be able to control his emotions, and it will leave his mind open. Search for my friends. See where they are. Move, now,” Emilia instructed.
Jenson frowned. He gripped Elijah’s arm and pulled him back as he stepped backward. He glanced around at the other males and nodded, indicating for them to move to the back of the room. He saw the confused looks on their faces but just frowned harder, hoping they would understand to get the hell away from being anywhere near Emilia. She had warned that her power would fill the room, and he knew firsthand the effect it would have on them. Kicking the small table out of the way, Jenson moved back slowly, keeping his eyes fixed firmly on Emilia.
Kion stared at each male in turn. What were they doing? Confusion spread through his mind. This wasn’t the way he’d expected them to react. He had the female in his grasp and had threatened her life. He’d expected them to agree to his demands and bring the females and the list to the apartment. What the hell was going on?
His torment ripped at her soul. She feared for his life more than her own, and if anything happened to him, her life would end in an instant. The love that had grown in her heart for him gave her a reason to live, and now it was down to her to protect him as he’d protected her. Even though she could feel her own terror swirling through her veins, she knew what she had to do. Emilia closed her eyes, picturing Jenson’s handsome face.
Bloodred mist filled her eyes. Power bubbled from deep in her stomach and grew—intensifying as it swirled through her chest and through the rest of her body. More powerful than she’d ever felt, the power not only erupted from her hand but exploded from every cell in her body. The sheer force made every muscle in her body spasm. Emilia could feel every emotion, every sensation projected her power from her body, and she opened her eyes to see a shimmer of red fill the room. A shattering sound filled the air as the glasses on the cabinet exploded. The TV fractured, moments before the screen tore apart, and shards of black glass shot into the room.

A little bit more about me!
My typical day - At the end of a busy day at work, I get home and pull out my laptop, eager to begin with my current WIP. I have ideas throughout the day and have to type them up just so I don’t forget anything. I then re-read the last few paragraphs that I’ve written, just so I can get back into the flow and continue writing the next chapters. I love to lose myself in the story and usually don’t finish writing until it’s late at night.
2- What inspires you in your writing?
For me, the best inspiration is the world around me. Everyone uses their senses to see, hear, feel and touch and that’s the best way to draw the readers into my stories. If I need a setting, I look around at the streets, parks, cities. I find the way people act fascinating. It really shows their emotions and characteristics. It help in my writing to be able to visualise how people react to situations and of course, my final inspiration is my family. They are always there to help and guide me with ideas.
3- What made you want to write paranormal stories?
After spending many years reading paranormal stories, I felt compelled to write my own story. I had a dream to create my own world of paranormal characters and was able to see the lives of The Mist in my mind. My first initial ideas grew and before I knew it, I had planned the entire series. Even now when I write, the stories evolve and it gives me a great sense of pride to know that I can bring enjoyment to readers.
4- What is the underlying theme to your stories?
I always include passion and possession in my stories. The whole series is built on paranormal males who find their true mates and the lengths they would go to protect and love them. Everyone wants to feel desired and I felt that was an important aspect of the stories.
5- Have you ever written anyone you know into your stories?
I’ve not written my true self into any of the stories but in Book 2 ‘Jonah’s Salvation’, and Book 3 ‘Jenson’s Honor’ there are two characters who I have been able to use personal.
