When Jocelyn Weatherford is whisked away from a preparatory academy in upstate New York to live with her extended family in New Orleans, she is unprepared to encounter the dangers awaiting her. Yet even as she is thrust into an unfamiliar world of witches and voodoo magic, the greatest threat of all may be the boy she has fallen for.

While handsome and charming, he is also a Caldwell… a member of the family the Weatherford’s have been feuding with for centuries. As their forbidden love grows it becomes the volatile spark that forever changes their world and everyone in it.

Chapter-by-Chapter-header---Excerpt

“It’s only a matter of time before the rest of our world discovers who she is,” warned Isadora.

He agreed with her. “I think that time has already come.” I listened as he drew in a deep, concerned breath.

After a long silence Jameson made a declaration that sent tickling warmth through my chest. “I’m going to keep her safe, Isadora. Whatever it takes.”

She chuckled lightly and then asked with bemused curiosity, “Well now…When did a Caldwell start to care for the needs of a Weatherford?”

Jameson laughed quietly through his nose.

“You fought hard to protect her,” Isadora pointed out. “I’ve never seen one man handle ten guards on his own…not even a Vire.”

“Well, it’s a good thing they understand now she’s not a risk to them. It’ll keep her safe when she visits here at least.”

“Don’t change the subject,” Isadora said in a maternal way and I knew then that was exactly what she was to Jameson. A surrogate mother. And just as a mother would, she didn’t allow the conversation to end until she was finished. Persisting, she asked, “Does Jocelyn know?”

“Know what?” asked Jameson tightly. “That she’s a Weatherford and they don’t associate with Caldwells?”

“That’s not what I’m referring to.”

He went on as if he hadn’t heard her. “That no one wants us to be together? That there are those, our families specifically, who will do anything to keep us apart?” His voice turned bitter then. “Yes, she understands all that.”

“I meant-”

“I know what you’re referring to,” he stated, irritated.

“Then answer my question.”

When he didn’t, she demanded, “Does she know how much you care for her?”

“What does it matter? She’s stubborn, Isadora. She makes up her mind and then commits to it.”

I should have been insulted but coming from Jameson I knew that should be taken as a compliment.

“Hmm,” mused Isadora.

“What?”

“I know someone else with that very same trait.” She chuckled under her breath. “It’s no wonder you’ve found each other. You’ve been looking for one another all along. No one else would do.”

When I didn’t hear him deny her observation my heart skipped a beat.

“Is she worth the danger?” asked Isadora, not in warning but to test him.

“Isadora…” he drew in a deep, troubled breath. My heart leapt at Jameson’s next statement, meant only for Isadora’s ears. “I’m in love with her. Everything is worth it.”

    New Orleans is the perfect setting for this story. The excerpt piqued my interest.
    I hope the release of RESIDUE does well.
