Nothing at Crossroads is what it seems and Katia's secrets may be the darkest of them all.
Liam Swift is a young man Amy has always admired from afar. She's seen his face a thousand times; on the screen and in magazines. He seems unstoppable as his talent and beauty send him hurtling toward becoming a Hollywood legend...
Until one day - in what appears to be a fit of madness - he stuns the world by throwing it all away. Not even the most persistent reporter can fathom the reason behind Liam's decision.
Never in Amy's wildest dreams could she have imagined this 25-year-old God of acting would go on to accept employment at her local boarding school. Or that he'd personally start teaching her drama lessons.
It seems life can't get much better for Amy ... until the sound of tortured weeping starts echoing through the thin walls of her dorm room each night, leading her to stumble upon a horrifying secret Liam had hoped to keep hidden forever.
Seventeen-year-old Justin Barrow is a usual teenager who is more than tired of his depressing life and abusive father.

Devlin O’Mara has spent a long time cultivating her reputation as a scary bitch, and nothing’s going to change that. Not cheating boyfriends, annoying ex-crushes, or even a cheesy new kid who looks like he could have walked straight out of a young adult novel.
But life takes odd turns and eerie events coupled with a stalking classmate threaten to send Dev’s walls crumbling down around her, finally forcing her to face the true horror of her past.
Joining forces with an enemy is the only way to get to the heart of an enigmatic boy’s true intentions and protect everyone in her life from a being who couldn’t possibly exist.
It all begins at the Halloween Dance...
Always the black sheep, not caring what anyone thinks, and not a very good dancer, Raine is forced to attend the high school dance with her best friend, Shania. The last thing she expected was to meet Tristan, the gorgeous new kid in school, or experience her first kiss. Envious she wasn’t the one that caught Tristan’s eye, Shania watches Raine leave to spend more time with him, but both girls have no idea that there is much more to him than beautiful green eyes and electrifying kisses.
The heat ony begins with the kiss, but flames soon ignite when Tristan’s old nemesis, Logan, shows up. Not only must Tristan keep him from stealing his girl, but he must ensure that their secrets remain buried. When they rescue Raine from a rogue vampire, both boys must put their differences aside to protect her from the evil that hunts her. None of them expected she would have a secret of her own, including Raine.
“You are a warrior, you just don’t know it yet.”
Born into a destiny she knew nothing about, Raine soon learns that life is much more than it seems. She is a Shijin Warrior and it is up to her to save immortal kind from the very thing that is trying to end their existence. Hearts desires may get in the way, but the Immortyl Kiss may be just what can save them all.

Their lives are changed completely, throwing them into a climax from which few walk away.

The series, so far...
In one dark and fateful night, everything about seventeen year old Lucinda Malone’s life changes. Having already lost both of her parents, Lucy loses the one remaining person she can rely on—and, worst of all, she loses her to a darkness she never knew existed, but to which she had always felt drawn.
The moment Lucy discovers that there’s another world existing within her own—that vampires and casters aren’t just mythical beings—she feels nothing. Nothing but a quiet acceptance. For as long as she can remember, she’s dreamed of the darkness. She’s felt its pull, calling out to her—but it isn’t until she meets Darren O’Connor—the vampire who saves her life—that it all begins to make sense.
The Darkest Dream is the first book of The Darkest Trilogy.
