 As the last of the Incenaga Witches, Emmeline has been tortured and forced to use her power to kill. But unlike the Incenagas before her, she has survived. With her freedom restored, she should feel safe, invincible even. After all, she has the protection of Prince Erick’s army and a power strong enough to obliterate any enemy. Yet Emmeline lives in fear for the next person who will try to control her, and no one can seem to find the tyrant threatening to claim her. 
Until it’s too late. 

With everything on the line, and the enemy at her throat, will Emmeline be able to use her power like never before? Even if it kills her?

Guest Post: 

I’m not like all those other cool authors who say they have wanted to write since the day they were born. I didn’t realize how fun writing could be until about four years ago. I had just watched the movie, The Bucket List, with Morgan Freeman and Jack Nicholson, and was so fascinated with the idea of making a list of goals. I put some pretty goofy things on my list– “ride a camel” and “kiss a frog,” but I also included goals that I knew would take more effort. When I scribbled “write a book,” I chuckled a little because I didn’t think it was something I could accomplish while chasing three small children. A few weeks later, an idea came to me that wouldn’t leave me alone, and in the spirit of checking off an item on my bucket list, I jotted it down. Before long, I found myself sneaking away to write more and soon realized I had a new passion in my life.

When I was younger I used to spend a lot of time taking quizzes that would tell me what kind of person I was - What kind of friend are you? Are you a Hero or a Zero? Or my all time favorite - Would you be a good spy? I had no idea who I was or who I wanted to be and I figured the results of the quizzes should tell me. And then I ran across a quote that changed my entire way of thinking:

“Life isn’t about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself.”  - George Bernard Shaw

I realized that it didn’t matter what any quiz said about me – I could be whoever or whatever I wanted. My bucket list has helped me “create” myself. I’ve done some pretty crazy things that I never thought I would and it has shaped my life in more ways that I could ever imagine. Becoming a writer tops that list, but I’ve also learned how to play several instruments, enjoy a sunrise, and use a miter saw without screaming.

And yes, I would be an awesome spy.

What goals do you have on your bucket list?

Author Bio: 
Debbie Dee recently moved to southern Idaho with her husband and three children where she is learning how to be a country girl in her favorite pair of blue heels. She adores fairy tales and happy endings, but secretly crushes on the bad guy now and then. 

As a dedicated musician who practices way too much, she never expected writing would sweep her off her feet until she jotted down a scene from a daydream, which turned into two scenes, which turned into a messy house and her first novel. Since then she hasn’t been able to let a day go by without writing. 

In addition to writing, she plays the piano, harp, violin, and gets in frequent fights with her cello. She loves to read and play board games - when she is winning.
