There’s no looking back when you’re on the run.

As America tries to forget the horrors of the Great War by embracing jazz, flappers, and the speakeasy, the Watchers remain vigilant by protecting the innocent and maintaining order among the Immortals—including a powerful line of Seers who are all but extinct. But the real horror is just beginning.

When George Yates is ordered to escort the beautiful Rosemond Le Clair to safety, he finds himself in the middle of an ancient feud that demands her blood. Without the Watchers’ help, he must struggle to protect the last remaining daughter of the Le Clair family from these dark powers, even as he defies fate itself.

Allure can be read as a stand-alone single or as part of the series (it can be read at any point).

My Recommended Reading Order:
The Unintended (Book 1)
The Nexus (Book 2)
>>> Allure (The Prequel)
The Sacrifice (Book 3)
The Fallen Part 1 (Book 4)
The Fallen Part 2 (Book 5)

Writing Resource: Room Planner

Okay, so this isn’t earth shattering or anything, but it is something I find helpful when I can’t visualize something.  A few books back, I received a startling note from my editor: FIX THIS! I scanned through her notes and her confusion was a result of my room description. And, to tell you the truth, the physical room was a little ambiguous in my head–and that translated to confusion in her head.

The safe house apartment in ALLURE (chapter 3).

Now, do you need to describe every single location in striking detail? Uh, no. That will slow the pacing down way too much (unless that is what your genre requires). I find this tool helpful when I need to picture a room and walk around it a bit before setting the scene. Do I do this often? No, but there are two main benefits: 1. You won’t give wonky description as to who is where, as I did (sheepish look). 2. You have a cool extra to post. Admittedly, it’s kind of fun too, just don’t get so distracted that you don’t write. (Yeah, I’m pointing at you, ha).
