Title: Breaking the Nexus
Genre: Paranormal Romance

Blurb:
Throughout history, myths and legends of extraordinary creatures have been told and retold. Fantastic tales of demons and banshees, gryphons and dragons, and of course, magic. Stories that every child grows to learn are nothing more than fantasy…or are they?

Beyond the world you see lies a hidden realm, the Mythrian Realm, inhabited by all of the creatures you’ve been told are mere fiction. Only one thing lies between humans and the truth: the Nexus. A magical barrier erected millennia ago to separate the two realms, it has stood the test of time. Until now.

For Mythrian Sha Phoenix, magic is nothing new. But when she stumbles upon a portal on the verge of collapse, her fate will forever change. Pulled through the portal into the Human Realm, she lands in the middle of Detective Connor Flynn’s brutal murder scene. Soon it is obvious someone is using blood magic to try to bring down the Nexus. Together, Connor and Sha must work to unravel the secrets before the barrier falls and the realms collide.

The Nexus is breaking and all hell is about to unleash…literally.

Excerpt:
“I’m from out of town.”

“Can you be more specific?”

“A town so small, I’m sure you’ve never heard of it.” Not far from the truth. Fire Falls wasn’t tiny, but it wasn’t huge.

“Do you take me for a fool? Stop lying, Miss Phoenix. You had no ID on you, no credit or debit cards, no cell phone, and your prints aren’t in the system. Tell me the name of the town; it should be simple enough to verify it.”

“Trust me Detective, you wouldn’t believe me if I told you.”

His eyes sparked at her words, the irises seeming to shift with increasing speed. If she didn’t know better, she’d think he had some Metallum ancestry. Only the metal crafters in Mythria had eyes like that, but there was no way he could share their blood.

“I’m tired of your games. I have a body in the morgue and two other cases I believe are related to this one.” He pulled out pictures of two other crime scenes and placed them on the table in front of her. “This is your last chance. Answer me now or I’ll have you locked up for obstruction of justice.”

Sha stared at the two other images, stunned. “It can’t be,” she whispered.

He sat back in his chair, studying her. “What can’t be? You recognize one of them don’t you?”

She didn’t know what compelled her to respond, but she couldn’t halt the flow of words. “I don’t know who the men are, but I recognize those runes. It’s impossible you’d find them here.”

“Three dead guys would beg to differ with you on that one. Where have you seen the runes before?”

“You wouldn’t believe me if I told you.”

Connor’s palms slammed on the table, the sound reverberating through the cramped room. “Enough with the theatrics. Where. Have. You. Seen. These. Runes?” He punctuated each word with a stab of his finger on the photographs.

“In Mythria,” she blurted before she could stop herself. Mother Night. What had she just admitted?
