A sweet blend of romance, mystique, and magic!


The story starts off with Libby wanting more from life. She's living a dull existence and her anxiety prevents her from making any moves to change. However, a bunch of traffic and a hot stranger shake things up for good. She finds out about an entire existence of people and learns that she is much more than meets the eye. With newfound hope and a new lease on life, she finds herself with great purpose and a chance at a love of a lifetime.

Nick and his clan are Keepers, who protect humans and live off of positive energy. After a brutal rebellion in the past, they live to protect humans from people called the Betrayers, who draw energy from negative emotions and activity. When the leader of the Betrayers finds a way to not only draw greater energy but to also drain the energy from a Keeper, the good guys are in for the fight of their lives - and Libby is caught right in the middle of it.

The author did an amazing job of coloring in this world and building the characters in such a way that I found myself invested in this story. Obviously I wanted the good guys to win, but I found myself distracted by the romance that was growing between Nick and Libby. I loved how their connection existed for so long, without her being aware of it. This story may just have you second guessing whether or not you've met a Keeper of your own. They're like guardian angels that you don't remember and I like the idea of a whole clan of people out there with the determination and will to keep us safe. I'm a little heartbroken over a character named Dev and I'm hoping to see this guy in the books to come.

If you enjoy a story of love, family, and magical mystery, you'll love this one!

Nick Geary, jaded clan leader of human guardians the Keepers, is doomed to love a human woman who’s forgotten him, time after time, for thirteen years: Libby Klink, a skittish accountant who’s as terrified of her recent and strange intuitions as she is of her mundane existence.

When Nick is ordered by the clan’s guiding force to seek Libby’s help in defending the clan against enemy Betrayers, romance sizzles as the pair forms an unlikely alliance in their desperate search to discover the key to the clan’s salvation—which Libby alone holds.

But a haunting secret could cost Nick everything, and in a race against time, both will be forced to choose between their hearts and duty. Can their love, and the clan survive, or will the very forces that drew them together ultimately destroy them?

About the Author
Raised on a down home blend of Johnny Cash, Jack London, Sherlock Holmes, the Steelers, and all things small town, Rebecca feels blessed to have grown up in a close knit, fun loving and artistic family. Her mother, a voracious reader and scratch cook, and her father, an entrepreneur, English teacher and lover of literature, taught Rebecca and her brother to work hard, aim for the stars, and live life.

With music, books and laughter as constant companions, she grew up working, cooking and eating in the family’s restaurant business. A certified book and hoagie junkie, Rebecca thrives on live music, mysteries and the outdoors. She's a cheddar enthusiast, lover of cats, teddy bears, hot coffee, cold beer, thunderstorms, the blast of a train’s whistle, the change of seasons, country roads, woodpeckers, spoon rings, cool office supplies, and the Food Network.

She's a sucker for a happy ending, and strives to write the kind of stories she loves to read—those featuring authentic, edgy and vulnerable characters, smack dab in the middle of action that explodes from page one.

Careers, past and present, include freelance writing, accounting, mother, problem solver, doer and head bottle washer.
