You can run from your destiny, but you can't hide.

If for no other reason than to help endure the hormonal rush of high school, sixteen-year-old Julia Parker would trade her ability to feel her fellow students' emotions in a heartbeat, especially half the boys in class.   When the beguiling Nicholas uses his superhuman strength to rescue Julia from the edge of a cliff before she's devoured by a bloodthirsty stalker, Julia is suddenly thrust into an underground world where people and animals are often one and the same. Fellow high school students disappear and only Julia and Nicholas know the truth. While Nicholas, a vampire hunter, is out stopping the ever-growing coven, an old friend entices Julia to join him on the dark side and a psychic tells Julia she alone is the key to stopping the madness, problem is it'll require Nicholas' life.  

 Now onto the guest post!

I’m feverishly write all I can before the kids wake up when there’s a knock at the door. I stop and listen. I hadn't expected anyone. Who the heck would be out this early. My heart hammers for a moment. I peek out the window and my eyes grow big as saucers, mouth thick with cotton. “Phil? What are you doing here?” I breathlessly ask as I open the door.
“Hey, yourself,” he says with a chuckle.
I purse my lips, then frown. “Should I invite you in?”
“Up to you,” Phil says with a shrug. “You’re wearing the talisman, but even still, I assure you’re safe.”
Darn it.
“Oh,” I blush, pulling my dingy robe tight around my body, and then glance around my living room. Toys and kids books lay scattered across the dirty floor, laundry looms on the other couch. “Here, sit down.” I move my laptop over.
Phil saunters in, hot as ever and I try not to think dirty thoughts. He is fifteen years younger than me and I’m a happily married woman. Oy vey!
“Wish you could read my emotions, don’t you?” He says, coy as ever.
I stick out my tongue. “Wait? How did you know about that?”
“Psscht. I listened to your novel.”
My mouth gaped open. “You did? How? When?”
“I got the audio book off of Audible,” he snorts. “You didn't create a dummy.”
Well, that’s true.
We sit and look at each other for a moment. I don’t know why I’m nervous, maybe it’s because he is so adorable in person. I can’t help but gawk. Then I remember I've not showered yet.
“So, what brings you here?” I finally ask, running my tongue over my teeth checking to see if I’d brushed (I did).
“I kind of want to see what’s in store for the next book,” he cranes his neck to look at my screen, which I push out of his view. “Do I finally get Julia?”
“Well, I . . . kinda heard a rumor.”
“A rumor?”
He licks his lips. “ I've been reading all the book blogger reviews, and a lot of your readers think what happened to me wasn't really fair.” He gives his leg weakening grin.
I turn away and compose myself, trying my best to keep a poker face.
“Oh, do they?”
Phil’s face lights up and he raises his right eyebrow. “I think I need a second chance with her.”
“Oh, do you now.”
He continues to smile. I try not to swoon.
“Don’t play those games with me, you little cutie. You’ll just have to see.”
Phil huffs. “But even your Grandma said that I didn't know what I was doing and that I deserved another chance.”
I smile and admire how observant he is. Never far away from my own reality, I suppose.
“Fine,” I say and motion for him to come closer.
In a flash he sits next to me, eager for the news. With great willpower, I withhold my hand from grazing his thigh. Instead, I cup my hand over his ear, first inhaling his incredibly sexy scent, and whisper. “We’ll see.”
“Brat,” he said with pouty lips, before checking out the window. The morning light just starts to filter into the sky.
My shoulders slink down. “Morning, huh?”
“Yeah,” he says in disappointment. “I have to run.”
We both stand up, just as Aaron starts to say “Mommy” from his bedroom.
I give Phil one more sheepish glance. “I hope you’re not disappointed.”
He smiles back reassuringly. “I’m sure it’ll be great.”
And with a brush against my cheek, the door opens and he’s gone.
I walk over, holding my hand where he kissed me and look out before closing the door. These boys are going to be the death of me and I can’t wait for him to listen the next book. Only then do I smile wickedly.

Check out a sample of the audio!

Brenda Pandos lives in California with her husband and two boys. She attempts to balance her busy life filled with writing, being a mother and wife, and spending time with friends and family. Working formerly as an I.T. Administrator, she never believed her imagination would be put to good use. After her son was diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder her life completely changed. Writing paranormal romance became something she could do at home while tending to the new needs of her family, household, and herself.

Three years later, Brenda now has five books published, The Talisman Trilogy: The Emerald Talisman, The Sapphire Talisman, and The Onyx Talisman, and Mer Tales: Everblue and Evergreen. She is currently working on the third book of Mer Tales, Everlost, coming February 2013.
