Author: Brenda Trim

Neither Brenda nor Tami grew up writing stories or dreaming of one day being authors but that changed when they shared a joint dream of creating a world to bring to life the stories of a group of dangerously handsome supernaturals.

Brenda is a Southern California girl who grew up in a chaotic house with ten siblings. Her mother is a brave, courageous woman who has successfully battled advanced stage breast cancer for two years. Brenda inherited that drive and believes with perseverance she can accomplish whatever she sets her mind to. Whether that was completing her bachelors and Masters degrees, or writing books, she is always up for a challenge.

Brenda survived the brutal murder of her first husband, John DeCaprio, at the hands of the children he was counseling to go on and help children in similar situations. Brenda remarried years later and now lives with her husband and their three fun-loving, energetic children. She loves running, reading, cooking, and Monster Energy drinks. And, Tami's margaritas!

Facing life as a lone wolf doesn’t deter Santiago from his mission as he continues to fight evil and put an end to the destructive drug taking over the realm. He is forced to evaluate his principles when he discovers the assassin hired to kill him is his Fated Mate. Will the domino affect of killing his mate’s brother threaten not only his position as a Dark Warrior, but her trust and love?

She’s never fit in with the other Valkyrie and looks forward to fulfilling the required time with the Assassin’s Guild so she can pursue her true passion of painting. What she plans as her last job is enticing for two reasons…the high dollar figure attached and the fact that the mark is her brother’s killer. Tori curses fate when her hatred for Santiago is outweighed by her attraction. Determined to find the proof necessary to condemn Santiago, she isn’t prepared when it backfires and her morals and beliefs are called into question.
