Blog Tour: Unresisting - Blurb and Excerpt


Seventeen year old Natasha Johnson is having a rough year. Her twin brother, Sean, died last summer after a car crash, and her parents decided to pack up and leave the only home she’d known all her life. It's a lot to take in, and Nat has decidedly given up on the world, until moving to Stetson Valley and meeting high school ‘outcast’, Chace Owens.

Chace's dark and mysterious aura is not exactly seen as 'normal', but Nat already knows that not a lot of things are of the norm when it comes to her life. She soon finds herself unable to resist Chace's strange pull on her heart, unleashing a sudden attraction to the unnatural forces that have always been burning within her. But with uncovering her true self brings forth great danger, as Nat learns that her brother's death had a lot more to do with the side she's unable to resist.

Can Natasha calm the blazing flames and withstand the threat of danger, or will this new found power destroy her?

"Sean! Sean, where are you?” I hope he’s not hurt, or worse. But once I calmed myself there it was again, the faint heartbeat. I let it lead me towards the source. Hopefully it was Sean’s.

I followed the pulsating sound a few feet from the car and finally behind some burnt shrubs I spotted glowing light from what appeared to be a body. It was my brother.

“Sean! Oh My God! Are you alright? Is anything broken?” I dropped down beside him and dismissed the tension felt beneath my knees pressed on gravel.

He could hardly say a word much less move. Sean just laid there shaking. I have to do something. I searched around in my pockets for my cell phone. Something I should’ve done the moment I woke up because it wasn’t there now. I checked on my brother again but the only thing visible were burn marks on his face and on his once white shirt now filled with dark patches. I moved my hands in dismay, knowing very well who did that.

Sean moaned and muttered something but all I made out was “ get away...he wants...power.” I thought maybe the crash left him dazed. He was probably in shock.

“I have to go back to the car and find a phone to call for help, Sean. I’ll be right back, okay.” I assured him. He moaned in return.

I dashed to the car and searched everywhere for both our cell phones. Please, God! “Not!” Sean’s cell was still in tact under the backseat. I quickly reached for it and dialed 911. Fortunately, it still had service. “911, what is your emergency?” And just as I was about to explain the night’s events I heard the loudest most horrific screams I had ever heard in my entire existence.

“Sean! What’s happening?” I cried out. The phone fell from my hand as I rushed over as fast as I could, just in time to see my brother’s body lit up in flames, and the bright light flying away from him. Its work was done. I knew that because I couldn’t hear Sean’s heartbeat anymore.
