OLM Final Title Lock up

They say high school will be the best years of your life.

It’s a lie.

Lexie and Dylan used to be the best of friends. That all changed the summer before freshman year when their mothers skipped town together without explanation.

When the scandal broke and fueled the school rumor mill, it branded Lexie as an outcast. For three excruciatingly long years, she faced endless torment by heartless bullies in her class.

It wasn’t long after his mother left that Dylan ran headlong into a slippery slope of self-destruction. As he rose to the top of the social ladder, he turned his back on Lexie and used bitter resentment to hide his pain.

When the two are forced to spend the summer together, tensions run high, but emotions run higher as the former best friends struggle to navigate the uneasy months ahead. But even if Lexie and Dylan can find their way back to each other, can either learn to forgive their mothers when the truth behind their leaving comes out?

Sweat beaded everywhere. Face, chest, back. It was like a sauna. Thunder rumbled in the distance and the wind picked up. After I closed the door, I scooped the first aid kit from the bottom of the stairs where it must have slid when I dropped it.

The sound of Lexie’s voice guided me into the kitchen where she stood at the sink with her phone tucked between her shoulder and her ear as she started to unwind the shirt from her hand.

Her harsh laugh stopped me from taking another step.

“I couldn’t tell you what St. Augustine looks like. I’ve been stuck in remodeling hell,” she said, sharply before adding, “Hang on, I have to put you on speaker.”

She took the phone from her shoulder, moved it to the window ledge, then propped it up. “So how’s your summer been so far?”

“What summer? The boss found out I had a lot of free time now, and he piled on the hours,” Heath answered, adding a dramatic sigh.

Lexie laughed again, though it sounded amused this time.

“How is that funny? You get sand and sun. I get florescent lighting and rude customers,” Heath grumbled.

“Hey, I’m working, too. Besides, weren’t you the one who was complaining about needing more money?”

“Yeah, well, I didn’t mean I wanted to work my entire summer away,” he said.

“How’s everything else?”

“Same. You?”

I wanted to back out of the room and give her a little privacy, but I couldn’t move because I didn’t want to miss her reply.

She shrugged as if he could see her. “Just working.”

“Lex… has it been bad?”

“No.” Her answer sounded strained.

“Uh-oh, spill it,” Heath said.

Her light tone was clearly forced when she said, “There’s nothing to spill, dummy.”

“Lex, I know you. I know you better than almost anyone. What’s up?”

“It’s nothing, really. Just different… ya know?” she answered.

Heath sighed. “I know. But hey, look at it this way… you don’t have to deal with the assholes while you’re there. At least you get a break from here. Damn it, I gotta go. My lunch break is over. Talk to you soon?”

Her head bobbed. “Yeah, of course. You call me, though, since your schedule is so busy.”

“I will. Take care, Lex. And try to have a little fun. I want a full report on St. Augustine when I call you again. Bye!”

The phone disconnected, but I didn’t move until Lexie turned the cold tap on the sink. “Fun. Yeah, right.”

Dead Girl Walking by Ruth Silver has a new cover. Check it out!

Dead Girl Walking (Royal Reaper) by Ruth Silver

Published: November 25, 2014

Publisher: Booktrope

 

Forget everything you know about grim reapers.

Princess Ophelia Dacre sneaks out of the castle to visit her boyfriend in secret. A perfect night cut short when she’s brutally murdered.

Ophelia is given the rare chance to become a grim reaper. She must become Leila Bele, cut ties with her old life, and follow the rules of the reapers. Her greatest adventure begins with death.

 

Now includes the prequel Ashes to Ashes as a bonus story in the Booktrope edition. Available in eBook & Paperback.

Excerpt

 

“Listen, kid, I don’t care what you believe in. It’s not for me to say what’s true and untrue, real or unreal. My assignment was you. You get to be one of us, if you want it. Otherwise, you move on, life is over, kaput.”

Ophelia backed away from the stranger. For the first time, she realized she didn’t feel cold and wasn’t shivering. Is this what being dead was like? “One of you?”

“A grim reaper.” He held out his hand to properly introduce himself. “Edon Montgomery, head reaper and old soul.”

 

Meet the Characters

 

Ophelia Dacre

The princess and heir to the throne, Ophelia witnessed her mother’s murder as a young child. Barely seventeen, she is a hopeless romantic at heart. Ophelia has fallen in love with Larkin, a commoner. Although she knew it’s against her fathers wishes, she continues to see her boyfriend in secret. Ophelia is passionate, cunning, and would do anything for her young sister Mara.

 

 

Leila Bele

Formerly Ophelia Dacre, Leila is the newest reaper and has trouble following the rules. She missed her life as a princess, and has trouble staying away from those she left behind.

Wynter Gael

A grim reaper and constant rule breaker. Wynter enjoys Leila’s company. His roommate and best friend, Jasper, keeps him in line.

Mara Dacre

Princess and younger sister to Ophelia, Mara is just fourteen years old. Full of love toward Ophelia, Mara will stop at nothing to know the truth about how her sister died, and who murdered her.

Larkin Alis

Not of royal blood, unbeknownst to him, Larkin was courting Princess Ophelia up until her murder. He is a suspect in her brutal slaying.

Edon Montgomery

Head reaper and considered an old soul, Edon’s job is to keep the other reapers in line. Tough but fair, Edon is always watching and fixing reaper mistakes. Although, he has a few secrets of his own.

Jasper Ehlers

A fellow reaper and best friend to Wynter, Jasper has been in love with Violetta for decades. He’s a romantic, constantly wooing Violetta through the decades, hoping to one day win over her heart.

Violetta Mercier

A grim reaper and roommate of Emblyn. Violetta is cheeky, dark, and quite often mysterious at first introduction. She loves to tease others and enjoys the thrill of being pursued by Jasper. She prides herself on being a reaper and lets it reflect in her appearance.

Emblyn Vernon

The good girl reaper. Emblyn follows the rules, most of the time. A friend to most reapers, Emblyn has a kind heart and upbeat attitude. She sticks up for those that need support, and is always there to offer a hand when necessary.


Astin Stafford

Of royal blood, Prince Astin and Princess Ophelia have an arranged marriage for the sake of their kingdoms. He’s kind, charming, but a bit of a push over. Ophelia has no romantic feelings toward Astin.

Juliana Stapleton

Once human over a thousand year ago, Juliana was forever marked a dark angel. With black wings and a duty of responsibility, she doesn’t take her job lightly.
