Book Description:

An estranged mate, a mangled body and a powerful demon who calls her by name…

As a Realm Walker for the Agency, Juliana Norris tracks deadly paranormal quarry using her unique ability to see magical signatures. She excels at her job, but her friends worry about her mysterious habit of dying in the line of duty without staying dead. That's only the first of her secrets.

Most people don't know Juliana became the mate of master vampire Thomas Kendrick before he abandoned her seven years ago. Most people don't know the horrors she endured at the hands of the vampire he left in command. Most people don't know her true parentage, or why a demon on a world-threatening rampage has taken a personal interest in her…

Even as Juliana pursues the demon, it goes after all she holds dear—including Thomas, who is back to claim her for his own. But if she can't reconcile her past and learn to trust herself again, she will lose him forever.

If you could have any superpower what would you choose?
I’ve actually given this a lot of thought previously and I think I’d want to have the ability to travel anywhere with just a thought. How cool would that be? That’s probably why my main character does something similar, though she needs the help of mages to accomplish it.

Tell us your most rewarding experience since being published.
The book isn’t actually out yet, so this answer may change but honestly, at this point, just having people I don’t know want to read something that I wrote. It’s amazing and a little terrifying at the same time.

Please tell us in one sentence only, why we should read your book
Because it was two years in the making and I think all the work paid off in a great book.

Any other books in the works? Goals for future projects?
Book two in the series comes out in March. Although the rest of the series isn’t sold yet, it has a total of five books and one novella in it. My agent is also shopping the first book in a different fantasy series which is much heavier on the romance.

Kathleen Collins has been writing since Kindergarten. And while her ability has drastically improved, her stories are still about monsters and the people who play with them.
The rare instances that she actually finds some spare time, she spends it playing with her two boys. Three if you count her husband.
She is currently hard at work on her next book.
