The wedding was supposed to stop the endless stream of death threats. It seems someone didn’t get the message. As the family struggles to find the person or persons sending the threats, they face problem after problem. Rose is developing new powers so fast she's having a difficult time keeping up with them. New family members have been discovered that were erased from the family history. There is even possibly a betrayal from within their own family. Whom can Rose and Caleb trust? Who is out to kill them? Will they figure it out in time to save themselves and their family? Or will they discover the truth too late to save everyone they love?



Icrouched there looking down, sliding my tongue over my unsheathed fangs, which
pricked it, and allowing the precious blood to seep into my mouth. Tasting the
sweet taste of the iron rich liquid, my thirst spiked. The raw desire of hunger
ate at me, like a wild animal chewing on a bone.

This wasn’t about hunger though, it was anger, and it was
about protecting my family. Hearing Caleb and the others beating at the door,
knowing I only had minutes before someone got the doors open. Looking deep in
myself, breathing deeply I released the leash I kept on my powers. I felt them
slam into me, for once the feel of thousands of bolts of lightening hitting me
made me feel powerful, it wasn’t painful this time.


I stood still watching my sister-in-law. I had no idea what she was up to. I’d
heard she had a protective streak and was very lethal when she wanted to be.
Even though I couldn’t see this slip of a woman being lethal, I’d wait and see.
I was caught off guard by what I saw with my own eyes.

The books went to flying off the shelves all around my library. Furniture began
floating. The fireplace was erupting with flames all the while my little sister-in-law
was still crouched looking down at the floor. Books that were flying off the shelves
finally took on an ordered chaos as they were circling around and over me.
Trying to get out of the room, I found I was fixed in place.

The fireplace calmed down, the furniture sat back on the
floor. I was still fixed in place unable to move and books still circled around
and over me. Looking at Rose she was still crouched, never looking up.

When she did what I saw startled me.

Standing slowly, she walked to me. Caleb was beating on the
metal door that stood between him and his wife.

As she approached me I guess the fear in my eyes made Rose smile. “You see now I’m
no child for you to mess with. You ever kidnap me again, it won’t matter who
you’re related to. I’ll kill you and won’t tell them you’re a good guy.”

“Why are your eye’s…That’s not normal.” My voice quivered
with the fear, no terror I felt.

“It doesn’t matter. All that does matter is you realize that
those people behind that door are mine. I love each and every one of them. If
you do anything to harm them, I won’t show you mercy. Vampire or not I can kill
you. You may have gotten the drop on me once and drugged me. That was the only
time it will ever happen. You better be truthful in all dealing with us or you
will see what all isn’t normal about me.”

Waving her hand, the entire room returned to perfection. I
shook my head half in shock but completely terrified of her.

Rose looked down, blinking a few times. When she looked at
me again all traces of the person she had been seconds earlier was gone.

“Open that door for me, if you don’t mind.” Rose all but ordered it.

“Sure thing Rose.” I did so as fast as I could. I didn’t
want to be in a room with her alone any longer than I had to. As the door
opened, her family rushed out all speaking at once.

“What happened? What was all that noise? Is everything okay?”

Smiling at her beloved family then turning to look at me
before she spoke, “Everything is just fine. Isn’t it Collin?”

“It’s great.” I gave my best smile, even though I was scared at the moment.

Caleb looked around the room, looking for some indication at
what had happened. He found none. “Rose let’s go to bed.”

“I’m past ready. I hope the bed is a soft one, after being
on that hard silver table for a few days.” Rose said as she walked down the hall
towards the bedrooms.
As she walked through the door it closed behind her. I sat on the floor. It had
been all the years of training to look tough that had kept me from doing just
this earlier. I would not show fear.
