Enter the Other World at your own risk…

Myah Sullivan believes she is in a relatively normal, safe world. That could not be further from the truth.

Oliver King is her savior, a vampire who tries to show her the way. Throughout her journey, she learns far more than she ever thought she would about herself, and about the past. Soon, she discovers that there is so much more to meeting Oliver than mere happenstance. The stakes just might be too high, after all.

So, what would you do if you found out that you weren’t exactly…human?

With some new attention from the hottest guy she’s ever met, Ginger can’t help but wonder…is this all too good to be true?

Review on Goodreads, Amazon and BookBub: “Emotional struggle, romantic, funny, and enduring. The storyline is fantastic, addressing an age-old problem that many women have struggled through and shows that it can be different. Many of the issues that women have with weight are addressed and done in a forthright manner. It is a shame that the world, in general, is not taught from a young age, that weight should not be a factor. The heart is the most beautiful thing in a person and we should all judge from that and not the dress size. I loved the way the author addressed all those problems and showed the effects that they have on a person. Awesome read!!!” – ddeegott, Donadee’s Corner
