AN IMPOSSIBLE WAR. AN EXPLOSIVE MAGIC. AN INESCAPABLE DESTINY.
– The World of Water Elementals –
Outspoken and independent, Kendra Irisavie has always played by her own rules.
She’s an ondine, a water elemental gifted with the powerful magic of Empath Virtue and trained to be a fighter. Pursued by Aquidae demons, she and her mother remain Rogue, hiding among humans to avoid becoming casualties in an ancient war.
Everything changes when violence erupts on Kendra’s seventeenth birthday. A dark stranger appears, promising answers to her mysterious past and stirring unexpected feelings in her fiercely guarded heart.
But as Kendra uncovers the truth about her heritage and future, she realizes just how deep the lies and deception run.
Now, in the face of unthinkable odds, she will need all her wits, skills, and magic to fulfill an extraordinary prophecy.
The first in a sweeping urban fantasy series, WHIRL is the beginning of a young woman’s exhilarating journey for survival, love, and hope as she fights for her place in a world where she doesn’t belong.
I’m giving away three copies of Whirl on Audible to celebrate the release! The contest is taking place on my Facebook page and will end on April 25, 2016.

This week’s Teaser Tuesday for Breaker includes another giveaway!
A note: I’ve tried to keep teasers as spoiler-free as possible, but some things may inevitably slip through. If you absolutely don’t want to know anything before heading into the book, your best bet is to avoid these teasers. You can simply scroll down to enter the giveaway below.
Aubrey unceremoniously dumped a laptop on to the table. “I can’t believe it crashed on me.”
Ian rubbed her shoulders. “You can replace it after the ceremony.”
“I should just get the new model.“
“It’s buggy. You’re going to be irritated —“
“Todd got his hands on a prototype and I had the chance to try it out.” A stubborn tilt of her chin. “It’s good.”
Ian pushed a lock of dark hair out of his eyes and settled onto the sofa with a soft smile. “Aub, the system is fundamentally flawed. Hardware needs time to catch up to the theoretical. Function trumps all. Design is not everything.”
She shot him a look of mock horror. “Sacrilege. Take that back.”
“I can’t decide if you guys are adorable or if too much computing has fried your brains,” I said.
She flopped down next to Ian. “This coming from someone who walks around with knives on their body —“
“More than enough.” Brilliant emerald eyes danced. “Besides, you’re not the only badass ondine walking around Haverleau.”
She extended her sleeveless prosthetic hand. Slim, metal fingers glinted in the light. “Shake my hand.”
I tilted my head. “Isn’t that joke from second grade?”
“You’re thinking of pull my finger,” Ian said dryly.
“Yeah, but it’s pretty much the same thing —“
“Just shake the hand,” Aub said, exasperated.
I glanced at Ian. He shrugged.
I placed my palm in hers, the steel cool and hard against my skin. She slightly lifted her elbow.
A soft whirring sound vibrated through the metal followed by a soft click. I yelped and yanked my hand back.
Three lethal blades emerged from her wrist. They’d cleverly been concealed within the forearm bars of the prosthesis.
“Ian and I came up with the design,” she said gleefully.
Rotating her elbow in a certain way sprung a latch that activated the mechanism releasing the blades. The angles changed depending on the way she moved.
It didn’t matter which direction the opponent came from. With a simple gesture, she’d have access to a deadly weapon.
It was clever. Intricate. Brilliant.
It was exactly the idea I’d been waiting for.
“Can you make more?”
“Weapons.” I leaned forward. “Can you come up with other designs?”
“I guess,” Ian said slowly. “But don’t you already have kouper —“
Aub caught on. “You want to build weapons for the ondine training program. An arsenal.”
“The Armicant agreed to infuse them with Essence. But we’ll need to provide them.”
Ondines didn’t have the speed and training to get up close to an Aquidae with a blade. But there were other lethal weapons they could employ: guns, crossbows, throwing knives.
The memory of the Shadow’s blood tentacles, the crushing power of his magic flashed before me.
We needed everything we could get.
This week’s giveaway is:
- Signed paperbacks of all the books in the Ondine Quartet series so far: Whirl, Billow, Crest, and Ondine Quartet Companion Works.
- A Billow quote mug + signed swag
- $10 Amazon giftcard
Giveaway is open international and ends January 19. Winner will be notified by e-mail and will have 48 hours to respond before forfeiting the prize. I am not responsible for lost or damaged mail.
