Vale Avari has a mysterious past and a laundry list ofsuper-powers, but that’s nothing compared to what she finds upon moving fromsmall town U.S.A to even smaller-town England.

A chance dart throw lands her in Quicksilver, an off-the-map place with a bigproblem – people are dying, and word is, it’s supernatural.

At her new place of employment, a temple dedicated to the ancient MotherGoddess, Vale learns something even more shocking – women guards aredisappearing at an alarmingly patterned rate; women who possess special giftslike her own.

Supernatural powers aside, Vale isn’t ready to believe in the Wild Hunt as theculprit, and she’s determined to prove the deaths are acts of human violence.

Plagued by a brute with a history of domestic violence and lusting after adark-eyed man with a secret, Vale has a limited amount of time to discover thekiller before he strikes again. In the process, she’ll learn things aren’talways what they seem and the supernatural might not be so extraordinary afterall.

The Hunt could ride for her.

About Heather: Heather Marie Adkins is an independent fiction novelist and avid bibliophile with the library to prove it.

Heather started writing sixteen years ago when she really wanted to be like
R.L. Stine. Several never-to-be-seen novels later, she may have changed her mind
a bit and started writing whatever she felt was right. To date, she has dabbled
in numerous genres including chick lit, historical romance, horror, mystery, and
various forms of the paranormal. Her influences include Jennifer Crusie, Laurell
K Hamilton, Kim Harrison, and Jim Butcher. She first began publishing her work
in June 2011, much to the chagrin of her mother.

She has a black belt in Tae Kwon Do, though all that got her in the end was a
shattered pinkie finger that no longer bends. On the bright side, she types
faster with nine fingers than most people do with ten. She loves to travel and
would give her good pinkie and her soul for a cottage in Ireland where she could
write in peace. As it is, she has to fight through a lifetime’s worth of
distractions just to write ten sentences. She also enjoys gardening, cooking,
and reading when she has time to do so.

She is the author of paranormal mystery “The Temple”, as well as paranormal
romance “Abigail” and chick lit “Constant State of Disaster”. She is currently
working on numerous projects, including a thriller with a ghostly protagonist
and the first in a new witchcraft series.

A practicing Witch, Heather lives in North Central Kentucky with a house full
of animals and the love of her life–all of whom drive her crazy. She can be
found at her website, facebook, twitter, and goodreads.
