If you live LONG enough… love (and danger) will find you.

A new family has just arrived in the isolated mountain town of Telluride, Colorado. Welcome the Johnstons – Jason (a doctor), Rachel (a designer), and their niece Emily (a current High School Senior).

Emily has lived the life of a quiet loner in the past, trying to go unnoticed. But with Telluride being such a small and welcoming town, she finds a group of friends at school almost immediately. When Emily meets Link (another new transplant in town) her world turns upside down. She doesn’t understand why she feels a magnetic pull toward him, or why she unknowingly lets her guard down around him. Link is just as confused by his own need to be with her.

Emily knows she is playing with fire. She should be doing whatever she can to keep herself isolated, to keep Link from getting too close. Danger has a way of finding Emily’s family – that is what keeps them on the move. They arrive in a new town every few years – it is safer that way.

Because… Emily isn’t really Emily… her real name is Charity – and Charity has an even bigger secret. Charity and her family are not like other people, they have “skills” that mere mortals cannot begin to comprehend.

Before long, Charity is struggling with the reality that her two lives are coming closer to each other with each passing day. Soon Link will find himself wrapped in a supernatural world that he never knew existed – and discover that mortals are not the only beings that walk this earth.

Here’s what the reviewers have to say:

This was a very well written and thought out book! I loved every character that was introduced and it was not slow or fast paced it was just right! It had me guessing and wondering what and who exactly Emily/Charity was and why Link was so familiar to her and her to him, and I would never have seen that one coming. Kudos to the author for that little twist. I can’t wait for the next book in this series.


I was captivated with this book, as it left you wondering what exactly Charity is and why her and her family had to continuously move around. This was absolutely an awesome read, and I suggest anyone who enjoys paranormal romance to read this! The author clearly has talent, she could paint a picture in my mind with her words. Her characters were well rounded and very like-able, each with a story to tell.


I really enjoyed this first book in The Immortals series. This is a really unique paranormal world with surprising emotional depth. I admit I’ve had my eye on it for a long time and I’m kind of annoyed at myself for waiting as long as I did. Baum crafts a completely enchanting world on two levels: both the mundane and the arcane. I have never been to Telluride. Baum’s gift for describing setting is wonderful.


This was an amazng book! I couldn’t put it down! The story always has you guessing and things never go the way you think they’re going to go, but it all totally works. I would recommend this book!

About The Author

I have had a love of sci-fi since I was a kid… watching Star Trek with my father. I am such a junky for action packed sci-fi movies to this day… thanks Dad! That love started to include the supernatural/paranormal as I reached my teens. I will always thank Anne Rice and Lestat for introducing me to a whole new genre… and my love vampire fiction was born. When I began writing, I didn’t consider the YA paranormal genre. I started two previous projects that I couldn’t finish, and I never knew why. But, when I started to write – A Chance for Charity (The Immortal Ones) – the story poured out of me and I loved every minute of the writing process! I still have those other stories, and someday I plan to go back and finish them.

I am a crafter by nature! This probably also explains my love of writing – it is in the creative family. I scrapbook, sew, bead, etc… I love to create. I have a room in my home dedicated to crafts. Paper, ribbons, stickers, die-cuts, there is whole mess of supplies! At one time I was in the handcrafted wedding/party invitation business. You should see my kiddos’ birthday invitations!

My other love is baking, although I don’t do a ton of it. Because if I bake it, then I want to eat it! Cookie creation is a fun process. I like to see how many yummy ingredients I can cram into a recipe. So far, my favorite cookie is an oatmeal, coconut, chocolate chip, toffee bit cookie – YUM! I will totally email you that recipe 😀

On top of writer, part time teacher, crafter, baker… I am wife and mother – the latter being the best job in the world!

Thank you for considering today’s Book Of The Day – S.L. Baum and ENT appreciate it.
