He haunted her dreams by night and tormented her mind throughout the day. Filled with desires and lust for a man she had never met. She was his soulmate and he would have her by his side forever! It would only take one kiss to turn her. Matthias is will ruthlessly rip her away from her world and throw her life into chaos as she learns about soul stealing vampires, the Fae and dragons. Will Emma survive her new life and learn to love Matthias and take her place among the ruling Elders in the Foundation? Or will betrayal within the castle walls bring about their downfall? Excerpt: She was tethered to him and couldn’t resist her desires for him. It was as if they were truly one. To hate him was to hate herself. A tear formed in the corner of her eye as she brushed it away, it caused Matthias to stir, ever so slightly. Not wanting to wake him, she froze into a statue, not moving an inch. She needed this alone time to process and think how to move forward. She couldn’t leave him and go back to her old life for the changes in her body were too drastic. Emma was fractured in her decisions. Could she leave him? Start over again, somewhere else? Would her soul be truly fractured? How could she love this man that turned her into a monster? She was a freak! It was his fault! Then she made the mistake of looking at him and he was staring at her with eyes wide open. The look on his face said it all. He knew. He knew every thought and he just stayed silent, letting her try to explain the chaos forming inside of her brain.

10. Unforgivable
The marble slab in the middle of the vault was ice cold, but Emma didn't notice.  The cold didn't penetrate through her sheer gown. She was just starting to stir; her brain was still in a haze as the pain of the turning was becoming a distant memory.The vault was pitch black and no human eyes could penetrate the darkness, yet she realized as she sat up she could see the boundaries of the cavernous room.  As her eyes focused on the wooden door, she could make out each slat and see the details of the steel frame, the pounded black metal and iron nails.  The arched door was not only locked on the inside but also on the outside; a fact that hadn't registered with her yet.Beyond the locks, were the magic that bound her within this room.  She didn't know that fact yet either. Emma jumped down off of the slab and her bare feet landed on the granite floor.  Her body felt different; stronger!
