Synopsis: Ashley just wanted a normal life, but for a teen in an orphanage for the insane, normal is redefined. After weekly therapy sessions, and another increase in her sleeping meds, the night terrors have only gotten worse.
Her life is forever changed when she’s mysteriously abducted from the only home she’s ever known. Faced with enemies thought to only exist in grim fairy tales, Ashley discovers her powerful bloodlines and Mayan lineage. As the descendant of an ancient guardian, she must fill her dead mother’s shoes and protect an enchanted stone from a power hungry demigod.
When she meets Arwan–a mysterious Belizean time bender–all bets are off. But are his gentle whispers and reassuring touch enough to make her believe in true love, or worse, make up for his dark secret?
Love, power, secrets, and magic. Can true love prevail when myth becomes truth, and nightmares become reality?
Author Bio: A long time enthusiast of things that go bump in the night, Theresa started her writing career as a journalism intern—possibly the least creative writing field out there. After her first semester at a local newspaper, she washed her hands of press releases and features articles to delve into the whimsical world of young adult paranormal romance.
Since then, Theresa has gotten married, had three terrific kids, moved to central Ohio, and was repeatedly guilt tripped into adopting a menagerie of animals that are now members of the family. But don’t be fooled by her domesticated appearance. Her greatest love is travel. Having stepped foot on the soil of over a dozen countries, traveled to sixteen U.S. states—including an extended seven-year stay in Kodiak, Alaska—she is anything but settled down. But wherever life brings her, she will continue to weave tales of adventure and love with the hope her stories will bring joy and inspiration to her readers.
