Book Details

Beneath its sandy shores lies an evil so great and powerful…

The Dead Game is a murder mystery, a supernatural thriller, and a romance all in one. It takes place in a remote town called Oasis. Beneath the blue, green waters and peaceful setting, lies an evil waiting for its next victim. Bodies turn up on the shore. Shadows roam the streets at night. Tourists disappear, never to be seen again. The young residents are invited to a party at End House. And that's when the games begin. Pursued through revolving rooms and deadly traps, they barely escape with their lives. Two of their own aren't so lucky but remain trapped inside. Or so they believe. They must embark on a long and treacherous journey, not knowing whom to trust, to uncover the one controlling the game and everyone else in town.


Book Excerpt

AN EXCERPT His mouth lowered onto hers, drawing her into a swirling miasma of unexpected feelings and desires, introducing her to a new realm of pure pleasure. His powerful form enveloped her, making her feel feelings that were foreign and untried for her. She couldn’t get enough of him. She began touching his face and then his body with an eager and unrelenting hunger. She didn’t know what she needed, but she knew that she wanted and desired this beautiful man standing right before her. Her past life was washed out of her mind, never to be considered again. She begged him to take her with him tonight. In response, Wolf lifted her in his arms—as if she weighed nothing—and turned to leave the party. A dark shadow swooped out of the house and flew at them. Linda was knocked out of his strong grasp. Wolf was thrown across the patio. She looked up to see who had attacked them. It was Todd, his eyes a deep shade of green, standing there panting. Linda backed away in horror. His eyes clearing, Todd said, “Don’t ever be afraid of me. I’m here to protect you.” Then he was struck down by Wolf.
