As soon as he was gone, Lucy led Jaycie into her bedroom. “You amuse me,” Lucy told her, shaking her head. “And also sadden me. So easily distracted by matters of the heart. It makes you weak.”

Jaycie snorted. “Love makes you stronger.”

“He is an unnecessary distraction. And a vulnerability.”

“Hey, the Guard loves to kill, humans love to love.”

Lucy ignored this comment. “It is too late now for training.”


“Yes, if you’re...” Lucy stopped short and stood up with a scary urgency on her face.

“What?” Jaycie asked in surprise. In a flash, Lucy produced a bow and arrow from under the bed.

“How long has that been there?” Jaycie demanded.

“Shhh!” Lucy hissed. “Something is here!”


Just then, the door flew open, and Lucy was suddenly on the floor with something clenched around her throat.Jaycie jumped to her feet and shrieked. Then she heard a murderous growl so bone-chilling, it froze her.

“Tell me which one of you did it!” a ridiculously pleasant female voice demanded. Jaycie immediately knew who it was. It was a voice she would never forget. “Sasha?” she asked in confusion. As soon as Sasha Gray looked up, Lucy had her on the ground with an arrow pointed straight at her throat. “I’m glad you showed up, vampire. I haven’t killed in weeks and I’m really thirsty for blood – excuse the pun.”

“Wait!” Jaycie yelped. The arrow flew out of Lucy’s bow and across the room. Lucy looked up at Jaycie dubiously. “Have you lost your senses?”

“I know her. Please let her go.”

Sasha was already out of Lucy’s hold, snarling. “I’m sorry, Jaycie Lerner. I only came to see your father, and I smelled her.”

“What? Why?”

“It does not matter why!” Lucy hissed.

“Why did you want to see my dad?” Jaycie asked again.

“My mother has sent me to request his assistance. Three vampires are dead with no cause. And the Guard are the only ones strong enough to kill my kind,” Sasha told her. She turned to Lucy. “You will tell me who and why. Now.”

Unnatural Law Blurb

Seventeen-year-old Jaycie Lerner’s psychokinetic power surge is over, and her astounding powers are under control for the time being – sort of. As she struggles to maintain her humanity in the face of the awesome terror and responsibility of her abilities, she also yearns for the chance at a normal life – and a relationship with Matt Carter, the best friend she had to leave behind. But Matt’s got a few tricks up his sleeve, and he’s not about to give up on his feelings for Jaycie.

As Jaycie and her family grapple with the day-to-day routine of trying to keep their world together, Jaycie’s mother figure, Allison Young, endures a personal crisis of her own. The superhuman blonde possesses the physical equivalent of Jaycie’s awesome psychic power. So evolved, at ninety-two she still looks twenty. But what good is extended life when everyone else around her is so fragile? With no one to share her unusual life, she’s a uniquely lonely woman yearning for the romantic love she sees all around her. But in a dream she gets her wish – and it quickly turns to a nightmare for everyone else in her life. The memory of a rose is all she can hold onto in the storm of obsession that nearly sweeps her away.

Things quickly turn deadly for the vampires, but the Dey-Vah Guard fairies refuse to acknowledge there’s an imbalance in the nature they protect. As the danger gets ever closer to Jaycie and her family, the race is on to find answers before a secret plot can destroy them all.
