EXCERPT

Her knees buckled and she fell to the snow. With a deep exhalation, Aliena turned her back to the tree trunk and braced her tired body against it. That was it; she wasn’t going any farther. Her family had already lost so much, and now they were about to lose her, too.

I’m sorry, she thought. I’m not coming back.

Now that she’d let go, she was surprised at how easy it was to relax. She let her head rest against the hard bark and closed her eyes. The exhaustion she’d fought for so long took over like a tidal wave, settling on her shoulders with a wet weight. She allowed the cold to seep inside her pores, calming the fear and sadness to a dull ache inside her chest. She was too tired to care anymore.

Minutes came and went, she had no idea how long she had been there. She didn’t care.

A branch cracked somewhere behind the thicket of saplings to her left, and Aliena’s eyes snapped open. Fast, her hands dug in the snow, grabbing the heavy stick between stiff fingers.

Yes, she was tired and defeated, but the prospect of being devoured alive by an opportunistic predator was enough to chase the exhaustion away for a while. As quickly as she could, she pushed herself up to her feet and stood on high alert, her eyes fastened to the moving wall of greenery.

Hot tears of dread burned her eyelids as she steadied herself. Her only chance against a predator was to scare it off by standing up to it. Most weren’t looking for prey that could bite back, and her very life depended on how good she was at bluffing.

The saplings moved, then parted.

The blood drained from Aliena’s face as she locked gazes with the predator.

About the author:
Mary grew up in the quiet peace of a small rural village in the heart of Quebec, Canada.

She spent her childhood chasing butterflies and catching frogs, playing in the mud and generally being as unladylike as she could. Her love of science led her to complete a mechanical engineering degree at the Ecole Polytechnique of Montreal, where she met the love of her life.

Years later, as she enjoyed the role of full time mom to her two wonderful children, she decided to pursue her dream of becoming a writer.

She now write as much as her busy schedule allows to bring to life her inner world, filled with exotic planets, mysterious creatures and off course, hot, alpha heroes and the women who melt their hearts.

When she's not writing, she can be found in the garden, walking her dogs or playing with fire in her kitchen as a part time hit-or-miss chef.

She loves to hear from her readers, so don't be shy and drop her a line!
