“Baron Ford, he says and pauses to pick apart my expression, attempting to read how familiar I am with that name. I nod stiffly to give no indication I know exactly, who that is. I’m shocked to hear that name in this setting, at this stage of my life, the one far away from Cambridge, Massachusetts over five years later.”

Advertising Exec, Clarity Parker thought she’d never see Baron Ford again. Five years ago, they shared the date of her life and then he literally vanished into thin air. Now he’s back and has asked that she, exclusively, be assigned to his multi-million dollar account.

On the day the fog rolls in, not only can she no longer avoid him but she can no longer avoid herself. See, Clarity has an ability that she’s run away from her entire life. She’s learning an ability like hers doesn’t come for free, and something or someone is trying to make her pay for it with her life.

Her world is soon turned upside down after she escapes to a place called Enu. It’s here Clarity learns who and what she truly is. She also learns that Baron Ford is Baron Ze Feldis; he’s a vampire, and what bonds them runs deeper than anything she can ever imagine.

Their bond is further tested when they end up not only battling Baron’s psycho ex-vampire girlfriend, who wants Clarity dead but also “the evil” as they journey in search of the book which holds the Prophecy of the Seven Seeds.

One thing’s for sure, from this point on, their lives will never be the same.

Here’s what the reviewers have to say:

I downloaded the 2nd book and was hooked by the story of the 7th sister Zill. That’s what lead me to reading this book. I felt like I was watching Twilight and Avatar at once. If you’re into vampire romance and action… this book is for you. This book is written in a one person view. It’s very detailed and moves fast. Happy reading!


I enjoyed the adventurous story. Clarity falls in love with a vampire named Baron. I liked how the story shows that vampires cannot kill humans without their permission. Learning about the sisters while they are learning about themselves. I am going to continue reading this series to find out what happens to all the sisters.


This is not a book I would normally pick up but thought to give it a shot since it was at no cost to me. I was very pleasantly surprised and could not put it down. Overall, I highly recommend it.

About The Author

I have a BA in Broadcast Journalism and an MA in Communications Studies from California State University, Los Angeles. For the past three years I’ve read scripts, providing coverage for production companies and screenwriting contests but have been writing fiction consistently for 12 years.

Less formally, I absolutely love TV and am not ashamed to admit it! I’ve recently completed all 7 seasons of The Gilmore Girls and am watching all 7 seasons again. Before The Gilmore Girls, I watched all 4 season of Felicity about 4 times. I’m holding my breath, waiting for China Beach to be released on DVD. And I have a remarkable list of favorite TV shows, Mad Men competing for the top spot with Fringe. Yes indeed, I love TV. I also love Seattle, Washington, which feels like the color blue to me—tranquil, cool and yet vibrant. And more importantly, truly what I love most is writing—and to watch the world around me so that I can tell its stories.

Thank you for considering today’s Book Of The Day – Zuleika Arkadie and ENT appreciate it.
