Marissa Carmel has loved writing ever since a young age. She has a duel degree in History and Political Science, but took as many creative writing classes in college as she could. She spent most of her twenties bartending which is where she met her husband and a multitude of interesting people. When she’s not reading or writing, she’s hanging out with her family, experimenting in her kitchen or doing yoga on the living room floor.

1 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:36PM
Description: Touch me, and bring me to life... How do you move on when you don’t even know where you were going in the first place? The Spirit Stalker is dead and I have finally started to erect my life. But I quickly discover, that just because the structure is built doesn’t mean the foundation is sturdy. As much as I try to manage my abilities, I can’t completely control them. The physical impossibility of the relationship I have with Justice has reached a boiling point; our fundamental problem, my inability to control myself from absorbing his power, and his fear of touching me because of it. As if that wasn’t deal-breaker enough, a new threat looms on my horizon - Darklings. They are grim reapers of the immortal world who surface every five-hundred-years to feed off the souls of magical beings who are weak, aimless, lost; those who have given up and want to move on. They also hunt power. Which means, they’re hunting me. Abandoned by the one person I need the most, I find myself in Melenia’s realm. There, I’m courted by Siberian, a dangerous pixie who covets me, hunted by Death personified; all the while hiding my powers and my ancient bloodline. The pixie prince is alluring, and I feel so broken and vulnerable. I know giving in to him means giving myself over to him. But right now, I don’t care. All I want is to feel anything other than the loss and rejection Justice left me with. Anything other than pain. So what do I do when I’m scared to be touched, even though I know it’s the only way to bring my soul back to life?

Description: “Why is it always about the Vampires....” Up until yesterday the only immortals Liv Christianni believed in were writers and rock legends; so what happens when an unknowing Empath meets a pixie who wears leather, a Snitch who is repulsive and a brethren of burning Angels who can literally light your soul on fire? A whole lot of emotional turmoil and one love story ignited.
