About the Book

“Dark, sexy, and captivating.” — Jeaniene Frost
When Dr. Elliott Drake and his four friends emerge from a cave after wild earthquakes and storms, they find themselves in a changed Las Vegas, threatened by immortal beings and other new dangers. More unsettling: Elliott has somehow acquired an extraordinary ability—the power to heal with his touch. But even that ability is a two-edged sword, for Elliott learns that his gift can bring pain and death just as often as it heals.
Jade Kapiza, who was once imprisoned by the Strangers—the dangerous immortals who bring danger to Vegas and beyond—has been in hiding for years. But now she’s determined to help the Resistance fight back against the control of her former captors by traveling the countryside, secretly delivering news and resources.
Jade can trust no one…but when Elliott comes into her life, he pushes at her defenses and begins to tear down the walls she’s built so carefully. Yet the mysterious doctor seems to have secrets of his own…Can Jade trust Elliott with her heart, even as they risk their lives to save a band of innocents?
And can Elliott find a new place for himself—a home—in this alternate world?

Behind the Story
The whole story behind The Envy Chronicles comes from my love of thriller. The bad guys are always trying to find a way to destroy the earth, or to rule the world. And in the books I read and the movies I watch, they are always foiled by the heroes.
But I thought to myself one day…what if, one time, the bad guys succeeded? What would happen then?
…and the concept of The Envy Chronicles was born. Add in a little twist on the Atlantis legend, as well as a tweak of paranormal, and voila!
