Hi, Everybody! I want you to meet Chris and Jenny Martucci! They write as a team, and their series is fascinating! Here’s just a little taste, but mark your calendars so you can learn more about them on my blogger site tomorrow! Oh, and I’ll be in two places at once again. While the Martuccis are visiting with me, I’m being interviewed by Gemma K. Murray! So when you stop by to meet the Martuccis, please check my book tour schedule and come over to Gemma’s to say “hi.”


Melissa Martin was not prepared for what she experienced when a new student walked into her English class, how she felt the first time they spoke; she did not believe in love at first sight. At seventeen years old, she envisioned love but never dreamed it possible.
That was before she met Gabriel James.
Gabriel was different from other boys. With otherworldly attractiveness, gallantry, charm, and intelligence, Gabriel was everything boys her age were not. As her relationship with Gabriel grew, she realized his kindness and generosity matched his extraordinary physical appearance. Melissa found her feelings for him growing stronger with their every encounter.
But Gabriel had a secret, a dark secret.
Gabriel was no ordinary teenage boy. His exceptional attributes were not random inheritances from his ancestry. His origins were far different.
Gabriel James was not born of man and woman. His DNA was hand-picked and refined by Dr. Franklin Terzini and grown in a clandestine facility in the Russian Far East. Dr. Terzini created Gabriel to be the future of the human species, a perfected version. The crucial difference between Gabriel and the rest of humanity, however, was his inability to experience emotions. His lack of emotion was not by accident, but by design. Dr. Terzini believed that humankind would best be served without sentimentality, that feelings were the root of every ill within society.
Gabriel supposed Terzini’s theory to be true; until he met Melissa.
