The Soul Seekers Series
by Marilee Brothers


GENRE: New Adult Romantic Suspense, Fantasy



Twenty-two year old Honor Melanie (Mel) Sullivan has an affliction. Due to childhood trauma and inappropriate social behavior, she is diagnosed with Aspergers, a form of autism. But, Mel knows Aspergers is not her true affliction. She prefers not to gaze into a person’s eyes because she is a soul reader, and what she sees can be frightening. It can also get Mel into trouble.

After a brush with the law, Mel leaves her family home in Southern California and travels to Oregon where she meets Harley-Davidson riding William McCarty (Billy the Kid) and stumbles upon a human trafficking/baby-selling scheme involving a foreign girl from Kazakhstan, and others. Even though Mel's life is in danger, she won't stop until she finds the answers that will help those unable to help themselves.



Transplanted California girl, Melanie Sullivan, vows to stay in Oregon until she nails the killer of her best friend, Dani. Mel’s ability to search a soul for innocence or guilt is a big plus. Her love for Billy the Kid, former Marine and now a detective with the 3 Peaks police department is also a factor in her decision. She’s not quite sure what’s going on with Billy. Has the PTSD from his Middle East deployments returned?

When a hate crime is committed in 3 Peaks, Mel is recruited by sexy Homeland Security agent, Mick, who requires her soul-reading ability. Mick doesn’t hide his feelings. He’s more than eager to step in if Billy steps out, a complication Mel doesn’t need or want. As she goes undercover, Mel embarks on a dangerous journey, aided by her Uncle Paco and devoted friends. Along the way, she learns a valuable lesson about the power of forgiveness.



From Allegiance – Book 2

I lean down to drop a chaste farewell kiss on his forehead. A split second later, I’m flat on my back, pinned to the bed and Billy the Kid grins down at me like a naughty little boy. He rips out his ear buds and pulls the cord free until the music washes over us. It’s a rock and roll tune, a blast from the past.

“Hey, baby,” he says. “Wanna dance?”

Before I can form an answer, I’m swept off the bed and twirled around until I’m dizzy and laughing uncontrollably.

He sets me on the floor and pulls me tight against his body. “You sneaking out on me, Minnie Mouse?

I manage a weak, breathless protest. “I’m supposed to meet Steve at 9:30 a.m. I need to get going.”

He cups my face between his palms and brushes his lips across mine. “You sure about that?”

“Well, um...”My body says bring it on. My brain chimes in, promptness is overrated.



Many thanks for hosting me today on Fabulous and Brunette. I appreciate the opportunity! After publishing six young adult books, I realized I wanted to write for grown-ups again. Yes, I confess, I missed adding the naughty bits that spice  up the story. The natural progression for me was to target the New Adult market. The New Adult genre usually features a twenty-something protagonist thrust into an unfamiliar world.

Meet Honor Melanie Sullivan (Mel), the main character in my Soul Seeker series. After the death of her identical twin, Hope, Mel develops a unique ability she considers an affliction. When she looks into a person’s eyes, she can see into his/her soul. This frightens her. She becomes troubled and socially awkward. After a brush with the law, she leaves southern California and travels to 3 Peaks in central Oregon to stay with her best friend, Dani. In book one, Affliction, Mel falls in love for the first time and helps solve a human trafficking baby-selling scheme. By the end of Affliction, Mel begins to understand she has a special gift, one that she can use to help those who can’t help themselves.

In Allegiance, Book Two, Mel is determined to stay in Oregon until she brings the killer of her best friend to justice. She’s certain Dani’s husband is the murderer, but proving it is difficult. In addition, she’s beginning to have doubts about her Harley Davidson riding boyfriend, Billy the Kid, who seems to be drifting away from her. When a hate crime rocks the city of 3 Peaks, Mel is recruited by Homeland Security agent, Mick, to go undercover and use her soul reading ability to identify the murderer. Mick makes no pretense about his attraction to her and lets her know he’s next in line if her romance with Billy hits the skids. Life is complicated for Mel, especially when this city girl has to take horseback riding lessons while undercover. A twist of fate plunges Mel into a perilous situation that causes her to re-think her priorities.

I am currently working on Hope and Honor, the third and last book in the Soul Seeker series. I hope you enjoy reading about Mel’s journey as much as I did writing it.
