POWER: Reads minds, can absorb emotions by touching people
CHARACTERISTICS: Doesn’t ever truly smile
HAIR: Brown, curly shoulder length; wears it pulled back with a leather tie
PERSONALITY: Thinker. Absorbs everything. Cocky.
BIO: To most his gift seems like a blessing, but for him it’s a curse the other Eternal Guardians—those who protect the mortal realm from threats of the Underworld—seek to exploit. One he would gladly trade for the chance to be free…
“You should go without me,” she whispered. “I’ll just slow you down. I don’t want anything else to happen to you…because of me.”
She was trying to save him again. Being the hero when that was his job. Her heat surrounded him. Warmed him. Gave him a strength he’d been lacking, not just today but every day. Gave him purpose… Something he’d lost during the long course of his life. “I’m not leaving you, ligos Vesuvius. I told you back in the woods you were stuck with me. I meant it.”
The tiniest smile pulled at the corner of her mouth, but it didn’t reach her eyes. Those darkened with secrets and…pain. A pain he was desperate to ease. “You can’t save me, Titus.”
She’d said something similar before. At the portal, when he’d offered her help. No matter what Theron and the others said about her, they were wrong. He knew deep in his soul that she wasn’t evil.
Now, more than ever, he was determined to prove them, and her, wrong. “But I will. That’s a promise.”
POWER: Can block Titus’s powers
FOREFATHER: Prometheus’s daughter
HAIR: Red, Curly, shoulder length
EYES: Emerald Green
PERSONALITY: Independent, driven, doesn’t believe she needs help
BIO: A mystery to the Eternal Guardians. Great power dwells inside her, but no one knows what it means.
“Why do I get the feeling you’re holding something back?” he asked softly.
Because he was smart. And because even in the short amount of time they’d been together, he’d learned more about her than anyone else in her entire life. “I believe in signs. I never did before but…I dreamed about you.”
She nodded. “I think I have for a while, I just…I didn’t know it was you. But now…” She swallowed hard. “I should have waited for you. It’s the biggest regret I have. I’m sorry I didn’t wait.”

About the Author
I was never one of those people who knew they wanted to be an author at the age of six. I didn't have imaginary friends. I didn’t write stories in my journal or entertain my relatives by firelight after Thanksgiving dinner. For the most part, I was just a normal, everyday kid. I liked to read, but I wasn't exceptional at it. And when my teachers complimented me on my writing abilities, I brushed them off. I did, however, always have a penchant for the unique and absurd. And as my mother told me all throughout my childhood, I should have been an actress—I was a drama queen before my time.
Years ago, my husband bought me Scarlett: The Sequel to Gone With The Wind. If you ever saw the book, you know it’s a long one. I sat and read that thing from cover to cover, and dreamed of one day being a writer. But I didn't actually try my hand at writing until years later when I quit my teaching job to stay home with my kids. And my husband? After that week of reading where I neglected him and everything else until I finished Scarlett, he vowed never to buy me another book again. Little did he know I’d one day end up sitting at a keyboard all day drafting my own stories.
