Mattie Carver’s engagement party should have marked the start of her own personal fairy tale. But when her fiancé, Ben, is violently abducted the next morning, her desperate quest to find him rips her away from small-town life and reveals a shattering truth: magic is real—and Ben is hooked. It’s not the stuff of storybooks. It’s wildly addictive, capable of producing everything from hellish anguish to sensual ecstasy almost beyond human endurance.
Determined to find out who took Ben and why, Mattie immerses herself in a shadowy underworld and comes face-to-face with the darkly alluring Asa Ward, a rogue magic dealer, infamous hustler…and her missing fiancé’s estranged brother. Asa has the power to sense magic, and he realizes Mattie is a reliquary, someone with the rare ability to carry magic within her own body, undetected. Asa agrees to help find Ben on one condition: Mattie must use her uncommon talent to assist his smuggling operations. Now, from magic-laced Vegas casinos to the netherworld clubs of Bangkok, Mattie is on a rescue mission. With Asa by her side, she’ll face not only the supernatural forces arrayed against her but the all-too-human temptation that she fears she can’t resist.

Describe RELIQUARY in 5 words.
Action-packed. Sexy. Addictive magic.
How did RELIQUARY come about, what was your inspiration? What made you think you had to write this story? How did you come up with the idea of using a human as a “magic container”?
I had just written several romances, and I wanted to write something more solidly UF where the two primary characters were at odds, and so different that a true romance between them seemed impossible. How did I come up with the concept of a reliquary … honestly, I can’t remember. Like several of my past series, the idea started churning inside my skull and just worked itself out because I was so driven to escape into that world.
Will we get more of Ben in the next book? It is hard to decide how I feel about him yet.
Yes, Ben plays a significant role in Splinter. I think you’ll know how you feel about him by the end.
What’s next for you? Are you working on anything right now that you can tell us about?
I’m working on a few YA projects for next year, as well as a new adult UF series that I’m pretty excited about!
