About:


My Eternal Soldier
Sanctuary, Texas #3


The saga continues with the vampire Eira and an immortal Elvin from the Veil. Join me in Sanctuary again for an adventure that will knock the breath from your chest, bring tears to your eyes, and keep you turning the pages all night. Its Werewolves, Djinn, Dragons, Vampires, and more!


The last time he saw her, his sword was in her chest.
Inner demons have haunted KillĂ­an North since he killed the only woman he ever loved on a battlefield a thousand years ago...at least he thought she’d died. He unexpectedly gets a second chance to win her heart again, if he can just stay alive to do it. Evil lurks around every bend in the road. Magick, romance, and heart-pounding suspense greet them at every turn. But he’s determined to find a happily-ever-after with the woman he loves no matter what.


The last time she saw him, she was dying...
When the werewolf rescue squad Eira Rennir sets off with is ambushed by SECR military forces, she barely makes it away with her life. Willing to do anything to save her friends, Eira agrees to the mysterious destiny in Sanctuary she’s been avoiding for months.


Only with help from Sanctuary, can they find a way to save her friends from the treachery of Xerxes and forge a new destiny with each other in a world that’s been torn apart by hatred and prejudice.

Sami's Review:
Eira lost the one man she loved long ago and since then has found a pseudo family with the Mason pack of Lycans. She helps them free Others who have been imprisoned by Xerxes and the SECR. She has few friends and since the loss of her love centuries ago has been missing a piece of her heart and soul. Killian not only lost the love of his life but his brother to the SECR and Xerxes and since has made it to eliminate them by any means necessary The day Eira dies on the battle field he lost his soul. When on a run that turns out to be a trap Eira is gravely wounded and forced to seek shelter she never imagined that the barn she breaks into will lead her back to her humanity. Killian can’t believe his eyes when he sees Eira. Seems they both have a second chance at love. Can they rescue the ones taken in the ambush without losing each other once again? Will the hurt that they each suffered prove to be too much to get over? Or will their reunion cause something mystical to happen? Can they repair each other and help keep Sanctuary safe?

Author Bio:


Krystal Shannan goes to sleep every night dreaming of mythical realms with werewolves, vampires, fae, and dragons. Occasional a fabulous, completely human story slips into the mix, but powers and abilities usually crop up without fail, twisting reality into whatever her mind can conceive.


As a child, her parents encouraged her interests in Ancient Greek and Roman mythology and all things historical and magickal. As an adult the interests only grew. She is a child of Neverland and refuses to ever stop believing in fairies.


She is guilty of indulging and being a Buffy the Vampire Slayer groupie as well as an Angel fan. For those of you unfamiliar with the world of Joss Whedon, you are missing out! She also makes sure to watch as many action and adventure movies as possible. The more exciting the better. Yippee-Ki-Yay..... If you don't know the end of that phrase, then you probably don't like the same movies.


She writes stories full of action, snark, magick, and heart-felt emotion. If you are looking for leisurely paced sweet romance, her books are probably not for you. But, for those looking for a magical ride, filled with adventure, passion, and just a hint of humor. Welcome home.

Spotlight The Blackmail of Evelynn Faust




The Blackmail of Evelynn Faust
Shirley Anne Edwards
YA Contemporary w/Romantic Elements/73k



Evelynn Faust suffers from horrible insomnia and paranoia. The summer before her senior year of high school should be one of the best summers of her life. But she’s tormented by guilt and an addiction that haunts her every waking moment. Evelynn is a drug dealer who also craves the drug she sells. The money and the popularity that come with it aren’t bad either. But when she’s caught dealing on school property by Eric Wagner, the respected and admired police chief’s son, the game is over.
He won’t snitch on her, unless she gives him whatever he wants - her.
She’s being blackmailed.
Evelynn has no one to turn to for help. Not her parents who don’t understand her rebellious nature or her circle of friends who only care about partying and getting high. When Adam Tristen moves in across the street, and he wants to get to know her better, it all seems too good to be true.
She must make a pact with the devil.
Evelynn now looks over her shoulder wherever she goes, waiting for Eric to act on his threats. But Adam, the charming college sophomore, sees something special inside Evelynn, and he wants to help her fix mistakes. In order to do that she must confront a dark secret from her past that could destroy her family…her life…and her entire world as she knows it.

She must take a leap of faith.

Excerpt:

“You’re sure we can be in here?” Adam and I sat in the club’s kitchen each enjoying a plate of food. We used one of the stainless-steel tables while the staff moved around us, acting as if we weren’t there.
“Yeah. My boy, Lenny’s father, is the manager here. Remember when I told you to wait a minute in the hallway? I asked him for permission.” He smiled and finished eating the last of the Swedish meatballs on his plate.
During the hour, we ate to the point where I worried I might burst out of my dress.
Adam wiped his mouth and raised his glass in a salute. “I forgot to mention, but you look great in your dress.”
Whoa. Does he have ESP?
I put down my fork. “I was just thinking I ate like a pig and must be bulging out of it, and not in a sexy way. Sure you’re not physic and reading my mind?”
“If I were, I would know why you’re running away from a guy. So, what’s the deal? Why are you afraid of him?”
“I’m not scared of him.” I tapped my fingers on the table while a waiter placed crackers on a tray.
Adam’s hand dropped over mine. “Evelynn. I saw the fear in your eyes.”
I laughed, hoping he would take the hint and drop it. I finished the rest of my soda to give me more time. He cocked his head to the side, waiting for me to continue. I would reveal just enough to stop his questions. “Eric and I have a history. We were friends for a short time in grade school. But, he’s developed a massive ego because of his father, and his overall popularity at school. He has a hard time taking no for an answer.” I inhaled a shaky breath. “He thinks he’s in love with me.”
“And you’re not in love with him?” Adam squeezed my hand.
“Heck no. I’m sixteen. What do I know about love? He’s the least-likely person I’d fall in love with.”
“Sixteen is too young to be with one person in a committed relationship or to be in love.” He shrugged. “I’m twenty and never been in love with a girl.”
“How about boys?” These days I never knew with guys and wanted to make sure with Adam before we went any further with our new…friendship.
He didn’t seem offended by my question and took a drink from his glass. “Not into dudes. I’m 100 percent straight. But my parents would love for me to settle down with someone. They got married around my age and expect me to do the same, at least when I graduate college.”
“Wow, that’s a lot of pressure. My parents are hoping I graduate high school and grow out my hair.”
“Your hair? What’s the matter with it?” He tugged on a few strands, and my belly tightened.
“Ah, it used to be down to my waist. I cut off over six inches last month because I got sick of it. My mother wasn’t too happy. I thought she might disown me.”
His hand moved behind my head, and his thumb rubbed my ear. It tickled. I fought not to squirm in my seat.
“I think you look like a pixie, or a fairy.” He sounded huskier.
 I licked my lips as I stared into his big brown eyes. “Thanks. Since we’re sharing things we like about one another, you have nice eyes.”
His eyebrows lifted in surprise, and he dropped his hand, leaving me cold from the lack of heat near my neck.
“Guys can’t have nice eyes.” He frowned and chewed on an ice cube.
“My dad says—oh no, I totally forgot.” I jumped up from my seat. “I’m supposed to be working the party, I mean, I have to talk to people with Dad about donations for fixing the track at my school. I better get out there.”
“I should go, too. See what Edmund’s up to. It was nice sitting and talking with you, Evelynn.”
“You can call me Ev. Everyone else does. But not Evie. Only my seven-year-old sister, Olivia is allowed to.”
“Sure, no problem.” He kissed my cheek—something I didn’t expect. “Thanks for making me welcome here. I hope we can hang out again.”
“You don’t mind hanging out with a high school girl when you could be with a college woman?” I teased.
“Don’t sell yourself short.” His lips twitched, but he didn’t smile, although humor flashed across his face. “Age has nothing to do about it. You don’t act like some immature sixteen-year-old girls I’ve hung out with.”
“Thanks for the compliment.” I gave him a light punch on his arm and went to throw my plate in the garbage.
“Here, let me.” He collected our dirty plates to throw away.
“Thanks again.” I flicked my bangs away from my forehead. “Do I look okay? Maybe I should go to the bathroom?”
His stared with appreciation. I would have liked to say attraction also, but then again, I could’ve been mistaken. He gave me two thumbs up. “You look great.”
“I’ll catch you later.” I walked out of the kitchen, giving him a wave.
“You better believe it,” he said.
I skipped down the carpeted hallway. I was high, but an entirely different one from the other times I smoked up. Passing a mirror, I noticed how red my cheeks were. Adam was right. My dress did fit me in all the right ways. It had just taken someone like him to see it.
