Soul Keeper Series #1
L.A. Starkey

Release Date: August 28th 2014

Genres: Paranormal, Young Adult

*** Synopsis ***

They say a soul is the immaterial essence, the animating principle, the actuating cause of an individual life.

But what if you had to share yours with the one person you hated the most?

The soul mate principle states that for every one soul there is another that will recognize its match, hence creating the perfect union.

But what if you had two soul mates, which would you choose?

What if your choices had eternal ramification?

Deceived, the debut novel in the Soul Keeper Series, is a modern day love story about the implications of having more than one soul mate, and having to choose between the two of them. The decisions of the gods has left the next generation, their heirs, torn between fate and reality, and the balance of the future hangs in anticipation of what’s to come.

*** Excerpt ***

This is so unfair, Nicolas thought as he stared straight ahead, trying his best to ignore Seph.

Sepharian touched Nick's shoulder. "What's wrong?"

"Ahhh... Seph. You know I'm pissed about moving again. Don't play me, old man. I'm well aware of your guardian ability to pick up on all of my thoughts and feelings, which is rather disturbing if you ask me."

"Which I didn't." Seph winked.

Nick rolled his eyes and moved off the couch toward the window. "I love it here. The sun's still shining outside, and even though it's beginning to cool off a bit, Germany’s still so pleasant this time of year."

"Tell me, why do you enjoy this structured type of living? After so long, don't you find rules to be too constrictive?"

"No," Nick said turning toward his uncle, "I enjoy structure and rules because it keeps other people in place and at a distance."

"I believe you enjoy structure because it engages your mind and ability to reason. It also allows no time for matters of the heart." Seph stared hard at Nick, who scowled back.

"Perhaps, but I have no desire to invest my emotions in anyone, especially since every four to six years we move. Enlighten me, Uncle, what is the point of getting involved at all?"

Seph's expression remained untouched. "Why do you insist on getting angry at the inevitable, Nicolas? If there’s another way to handle this situation, my boy, please enlighten me."

Nick knew as well as Seph did that nothing could change the situation. They were in stasis until the wheels of the prophecy began to turn. With its commencement, the Time Guardian would fall away, breaking the seal. These events would start in motion the sands of the hour glass that would move him and his siblings toward their destiny.

What a crock. Why don't I get a choice in any of this? I absolutely refuse. I'll not be used by some time-bending, fate-cracking gypsies. They can all kiss it. He glanced over at Seph and winked. No denying his thoughts when the old man could read them like they were written on a clean sheet of paper.

Seph closed his eyes, shook his head and turned toward the kitchen. "Sometimes you exhaust me, boy. You're going to fight your future with all you have in you, but unfortunately, once the Time Guardian breaks the seal, all you know and believe will change."

Seph rolled his shoulders, releasing some of their usual stiffness. "However, you must know I'll be here to explain it to you, to protect you and ready you for what's to come. Gods, I only hope your mother knew what she was doing when she picked me to endure this fate beside you."

Seph didn't wait for a reply, but slowly walked away. "I'm going to start dinner."

"Wouldn't everything just be easier if someone would tell me what the hell's going on? Why is having knowledge of the prophecy such a huge no-no?" Nick continued on with his tirade to an empty room, knowing his uncle could still hear him. "I'm going to refuse to accept it regardless," — he smiled devilishly — "so we might as well get it all out in the open, and then at least you can get a night of sleep, Uncle."

He knew from previous conversations with Seph that keeping knowledge of the future hidden from him weighed heavily on his uncle's heart. He felt for the guy, but his uncle had signed up for the present drama; now he was forced to lie in the bed he'd made.

*** Synopsis ***

Once burned...

Finding my fiancée naked on my couch might've been a good thing, if her ex-boyfriend hadn't been with her. For the past eight years I've been a witness to the power of true love, but after getting burned I'd decided there wasn't any hope for me finding it for myself. Until I met Noelle Brandt in a hotel bar. Maybe it wasn't the most romantic meeting, but the moment I met her I knew I had to have her. The more I learn about her, the more I know I'll do whatever it takes to keep her.

Twice shy...

I'd already found the love of my life, but I'd lost that love forever. And I'd been lost ever since. But one night a wounded man makes all of that go away. He makes me laugh, live, and feel alive. When he tells me he has no intention of letting me go, I finally begin to believe in the power of true love again. That is, until I find out who he really is... and by then, it's far too late to correct the mistakes we've already made. By the time we both know the truth, the lines have already been blurred beyond recognition.
