GENRE: Historical Fantasy Romance



As the Cloaked Shadow, Fawkes has made his career breaking into prisons for any contract with a large enough purse. He takes advantage of the kingdom's impending revolution by playing both sides of the conflict. Each rescue contract he fulfills turns a tidy profit until he angers the wrong duke.

Charlotte is a criminal-in-training who yearns to crack her mentor’s guarded façade, but is unprepared to confront the depths of his dark past. As her sense of right and wrong blurs, Charlotte discovers just how far she will go for the Cloaked Shadow and the sacrifices he requires.

Now hunted throughout the land, Fawkes must face long-buried secrets in order to survive, but they could destroy him. Charlotte risks everything, including her heart, to set Fawkes on the path to redemption.

Will Charlotte have the strength to pull Fawkes into the light, or will she follow him into the shadows?



Fawkes’ attack pressed Charlotte backward, and soon they were outside. As Charlotte’s feet slipped in the mud, she realized she had lost her size advantage. Lightning cracked across the sky, illuminating her surroundings long enough to blind her, and she failed to anticipate the next punch. It landed hard on her right shoulder and spun her around.

Before she could steady herself to counter, her arm was wrenched behind her back. Fawkes had a grip on it with one hand, the other around her throat. She stood flush against him, feeling his harsh breath and pounding heart as it beat against her back. They stood like statues, neither one of them wanting to the first to break the spell.
The roar of thunder made her jump and brought them back to reality. “I’ve gotten better, haven’t I?” Charlotte couldn’t help asking. She’d meant it as a quip, but it came out too hopeful.

She felt Fawkes sigh, tensing his hold on her before dropping his grip. With her back still to him, she waited for his answer. Instead, his hand brushed wet hair back from her face before a finger traveled down and traced her jawline. Charlotte leaned into the touch, but then it was gone. She turned to see only darkness, and then a flash of lightning showed his tall frame heading back to the cave.



Five Reasons You Should Read My Book

1.     Secret identities. The classic way to make a studly hero with a tragic past even more captivating and swoon-worthy. Even more walls for our heroine, Charlotte, to tear down. Plus, lots of lawbreaking can occur, which is tons of fun.

2.     A training montage. This may have resulted from watching too many 80s movies, but who doesn't love a montage scene? Read Cloaked to see how Charlotte transforms herself into a woman who kicks some serious butt.

3.     A sidekick animal. Confession: I am not a horse person, I am a dog person. But if there was ever a horse that I wouldn't be terrified to ride, it would be Ghost. He is loyal, sturdy, and smart, and will melt the hearts of animal lovers everywhere.

4.     To figure out what is on the cover. Is it a bird? A bomb? Someone's head exploding in the crown? It is all open for interpretation, but once you read the book, your best guess is probably right.

5.     My mom and dad give it a gold star. If you ask them, they swear Cloaked will hit the New York Times Bestseller List and movie producers will be knocking down my door. Take their opinion with a grain of salt, though, because these are the same parents who put smiley faces in the margins next to parts of the book they liked. If you would like to contribute a less biased review, I would be forever grateful for readers willing to take a chance on a debut author.
