New Release – #Yokai – YA paranormal Romance

My latest novel, Yokai, was released on Tuesday, May 15. A YA paranormal romance, I feel it is completely different from any other book that I have written previously.

It’s hard not to fall in love with your characters, and I certainly have. I love Kit, for being the stubborn and strong girl that she is. I love Daisuke for his cool confidence. I love Riku for being tender, yet strong. And of course, I love Hiro, because he’s just so darn cute! I hope that you will enjoy reading it as much as I have enjoyed writing it.

The blurb:

Sixteen-year-old Kit Maguire has never met her mother, made lasting friendships, or had a permanent home, and she’s always known that she was a little different from others. When Kit and her father move to Kyoto, Japan, her father insists that this time will be better, but Kit is reluctant to give it a try. The kids in Kyoto seem to be the same as everywhere else: judging her for her looks before they get to know her. She figures it’s just one more short stop that she won’t make friends, so why bother?

With the appearance of her thought-to-be-dead mother, Kit yearns to find out more about her mom, their family, and why she has the ability to conjure green fire. When a girl named Yoriko insists on becoming friends and two of the hottest guys in school vie for her attention, things get complicated. Kit learns just who she is and what she’s capable of, but with that knowledge comes the realization that she may never be able to have a relationship with Riku; as their clans are bitter enemies. Kit hopes that their love will bring the clans together and that she’ll get everything she’s ever wanted: family, friends, and a place to call home.

Yokai is an Amazon exclusive for only $2.99 and is available for Prime members to borrow for free!
