Book Blurb
17- year- old Ana Maria Tei’s life has always been perfect: loving parents, good grades, and a future so
bright it outshone the sun. But now words like “separation” and “divorce” are sending her world
plummeting to hell. Determined to keep her family intact, Ana plans a family-bonding trip from Vienna
to Tuscany. Except fate has other plans. Ana’s parents and siblings are killed in a car accident on their
way to pick Ana up from school.
Enter Grim, aka Ernest. He promises to relinquish the four souls if Ana agrees to trade her soul for theirs
and serve a lifetime as his novice. In order for Ana to graduate from her Reaper’s Novice station to a
Soul Collector graduate, Grim puts her to test. To her horror, she finds out becoming a Reaper’s Novice
didn’t happen by chance. It was preordained, and she is forced to make a choice: save her family’s souls
or come to terms with who she really is and complete the task set for her.

medieval architecture. When not working in her full time job, catching up with her two children, writing

As soon as my bedroom door closes, Rolf swings me around and backs me up against the door,
his entire length to mine. He slides his arm around my waist, pulling me closer. He leans down, 
pressing his lips on my forehead. “Your dad doesn’t trust me.” 
I slide my hands up his firm chest and slip them around his neck, tangling my fingers with the 
silky-soft hair curling on his collar. “I don’t think my dad trusts any boy in my room.”
He chuckles, his warm breath caressing the shell of my ear. “Good thing he doesn’t.” His voice 
is hoarse, tossing away any decent thoughts from my mind. “I’ve missed you.” My knees barely 
hold me up as his lips trail my jaw, in a slow torturous pace. His arms tighten around me, 
melding us together. Hiking to my toes, I push my body forward until all that surrounds me is his 
light sandalwood aftershave.
“Missed you—” His mouth covers mine, cutting me off. Every sound inside the flat fades. 
Everything in me veers forward, focusing on him, on his lips on mine, not caring that my parents 
could walk in on us, or my siblings down the hallway could barge in. His hands travel down the 
hem of my t-shirt, and under it, wrap around my waist and soon his fingertips whisper into my 
skin. And I’m burning. They hike farther up. Every nerve in my body narrows to his fingers. I’m 
sure if he stops, my body will shatter into millions of worthless pieces. And when they do move 
up to trace the outer line of my lace bra, my body trembles with the promise of combusting. A 
whimper bubbles up my throat, and I push myself further into him. If only I could get under his 
skin, then we could be one. He groans low as he pushes me against the door seeming as desperate as I am. I tighten my hold on him at the same time fumble awkwardly with his shirt 
searching for the path to his skin. As soon as my fingers touch his skin, his whole body trembles. 
He lifts his mouth from mine, then buries his face in the crook of my neck, breathing hard. I 
clutch him closer, tighter, my breath mirroring his.
“Kissing you has got to be the most pleasurable thing in the world, Ana.” His voice is still rough, 
his breath deliciously warm on the nape of my neck. I couldn’t agree more. I mean about kissing
