New installment coming to you every Wednesday
Heat Level 3
Special Agent Analiese Valentine – aka "Val" – lived and died for her career. Possessing a sixth sense for as long as she could remember, Val always knew she was different – and so did everyone else. So different, in fact, her own abandoned her, forging internal scars so deep most relationships, if any, were cultivated at a safe distance. A near-tragic accident opens unexpected doors – some otherworldly – changing her life in ways she'd never imagined possible.
Dr. Maxwell "Max" Thornton, a psychiatrist, ironically lives an almost reclusive life except for his practice. Although his empathic abilities allow him to help his patients in ways most practitioners never could, the effort is taxing, at times debilitating.
When a guarded agent and a reluctant empath cross paths, unexpected revelations occur and a delicate thread binds them to one another as a predetermined Fate begins to unfold, sending them plummeting into a war between good and evil.
Layla HunterAuthor URL: http://www.laylahunter.comAuthor Bio
Layla's Hunter's love of romance began at age eleven when her Nanny (referred to lovingly as
'Nanns') slipped her a couple ofTrue Romance comic books, along with her first romance; and
it was love at first sight. Before long, she was writing her own stories and has been doing so for
over two decades. Along with erotic romance, she enjoy writing fantasy/paranormal and
contemporary as well.
As a full-time associate at a recovery management firm, wife, and mother to a seventeen-year
old daughter, finding time to write can sometimes be a challenge, but it is always a priority.
A New Jersey native, she currently resides in an 1890 Folk Victorian that she and her husband
are slowly returning to its former beauty. They share this century-old home with their daughter
and a bevy of delightfully comical cats. Oh, and let’s not forget the ‘ghost mice’ … unseen to
the human eye, her cats dutifully chase these invisible intruders throughout the house at three
o’clock in the morning.
Although the siren call of writing commands most of her time, she also enjoys reading,
photography, ghost hunting, belly dancing, shooting sports, movies, music, and actively
supports several causes near and dear to her heart.
Layla has published several erotic shorts in an online magazine, as well as had one of her short
stories included in a recent anthology. Romance and a deep emotional connection between her
character's are integral to her writing, as is giving her readers a chance to escape into her
character's world for a little while, assuring them of a HEA. She loves hearing from her readers
and is happy to answer all e-mails.
She is a member of RWA, NJRW, LSFW, Passionate Ink, FF&P RWA, Elements RWA, IWWG,
Erotic Readers & Writers Association, Savvy Authors, Absolute Write, Romance Divas,
GoodReads.com and Romance in the Backseat, where she entered and won the 2010 New
Year’s Writer’s Rumble with her entry Karma (which she is in the process of completing), and
has several WIP's.
