Temple West, debut author of the YA paranormal romance Velvet, is as nerdy in real life as she is on the Twitter. She can sew (poorly), drive stick (please fasten your seat belt), and is in the slow process of acquiring a motorcycle (and motorcycle license, which should, in all honesty, come first).

Read from the Book

"Sorry I dragged you away from dinner," I said, realizing the time. "You want to eat with us?"He seemed to consider it, then shook his head. "I’d better get back. Gotta take my medication." I arched a brow questioningly. "I thought your immune system kicked ass?"He laughed. "Sorry, ‘medication’ is what we call it when we need to drink blood. It’s kind of an inside joke.""Oh." I said, blushing for some reason. I should have kept my mouth shut, but curiosity got the better of me. "Does it…taste good?"He stared at me for a long moment, before his gaze drifted down to my neck. "You can’t imagine."My pulse jumped, half in fear and half in…something else. His voice had gone low and liquid, his eyes were burning silver. "Hey Cait?" he murmured, and though he hadn’t moved an inch, it felt as though he were leaning towards me."Yeah?" I whispered.He wasn’t looking at me in the eye anymore, just staring somewhere above my chest and below my jaw. The sound of my own heart seemed loud in my ears, and if I could hear it, so could Adrian. His eyes flicked to my face. "You should really get out now."I blinked. "Yeah."I scrambled to undo my seatbelt and almost fell out of the truck. I could hear the click of the automatic locks snapping into place the moment the door was closed. Adrian peeled out of the driveway, back into darkness.

Editorial Reviews

"This romantic Twilight readalike shines with credible dialogue and fully developed characters. Paranormal fans who haven't reached their vampire saturation point will cheer and eagerly await the cliff-hanger's resolution in the sequel." -School Library Journal
