Vicki-Ann Bush

GENRE:  Young Adult Paranormal

As the star quarterback for his high school football team and local celebrity in the quaint town of Boulder City, Luke Jacob enjoys a charmed life. Everything's going according to plan, that is until the night he spots a mysterious and alluring girl in the crowd. Despite his father's cryptic warning to keep away from her, he's instantly drawn to Mary.

The team plans a gathering to celebrate their homecoming win, and Luke decides to invite her. The evening turns dark when the demon Abezethibou appears and threatens them. When Mary steps in to save her peers, Luke sees her for what she truly is, forever changing their future and creating a bond between them.

The revelation shatters what Luke believes about himself and forces him to face his destiny.

Will Mary stand by Luke in the face of the coming storm, or will she be swayed by the allure of darkness?

Enjoy an Excerpt:

The ground beneath them succumbed to the warmth of the midday heat drinking up the moisture and, with it, their relief from the rising humidity. Luke didn’t mind, he’d withstand any

inferno just to be close to Mary.

The teens shared earbuds and listened to some songs from Imagine Dragons. He turned his head from Mary to gaze up. He had never felt the kind of connection he did with her.

His eyes traveled back to the curves of her lean body. She was unaware of the beauty that she possessed. Living with the type of father Araqiel was, Luke was in awe of her ability to see things with such clarity. The angels gave her an impossible scenario and

she accepted it. She had doubt, but also courage. Her eyes were closed, and he could faintly hear the words of the song she muttered under her breath. He grinned.

Q&A With the Author: 

What was your inspiration for writing this book? 

I grew up in Catholic Italian family. Church was a usual Sunday morning and angels depicted in the artwork adorning the walls always fascinated me. That memory combined with the beautiful Boulder City skies just paired well in my mind. 

What did you enjoy most about writing this book? 

Mary. In many ways I could relate to the anguish she goes through. I’m obviously not half demon and half human, but there are times I feel that way. The dark side struggling to squash the light.

Do you have any other books you are working on that you can tell us about? 

I recently finished a novel about a coven of witches living in Long Island, New York. YA of course. 

Can you tell us about what you have planned for the future? 

My immediate plans include a tuna steak for dinner, take the dog for a walk, and possibly watch a movie tonight. Just kidding…my immediate plans are to enter my feature adaption screenplay into festivals, continue writing my latest novel, and shopping for a dress to attend the showing of my short film at the Orleans movie theater in Las Vegas on April 26th, 2024.  

Anything more you would like to say to your readers and fans? 

Thank you, for all your love and support. You are my light on dark days, and the reason I’m able to get the voices out of my head. LOL

  1. Angels are a favorite of mine to read.

    1. Me too! I also love angels vs demons films. I'm a pushover for the whole good vs. evil. Although sometimes I find myself rooting for the kind of evil but maybe...not character. Lol
