Author: Seleste deLaney

From a young age, Seleste’s mom tried to steer her away from stories about witchcraft and monsters and spaceships. Fortunately, she tried to point her toward true crime—which is much scarier. Seleste found solace in the arms of vampires, werewolves, and demons. In no time at all, those true crime stories found their way into her own writing too and she embraced the mayhem. She’s published a story or two with no death, but as a trade-off considers steamy sex a requirement.

As Seleste deLaney, she’s published urban fantasy, steampunk, paranormal romance, and even a contemporary romance. The sex and death thing also bled into her other persona and, as Julie Particka, she writes young adult urban fantasy as well… and mobsters… and post-apocalyptic… and…

Using the scheming powers she learned from her villains—and heroes—she convinced editors at various houses to publish her devilish tales.

Love and death in the Bermuda Triangle...

Greta Gallagher is TRAIT's secret weapon. With her uncanny ability to sense trouble before it even happens, she's an invaluable asset to the team and her partner, Nico Tancredi.

Nico has the ability to manipulate anyone except Greta. His challenge is to figure out how her mind works, without letting their attraction—unspoken and untried—get in the way. It does...and it's more intense than either of them imagined. But deep in the waters of the Bermuda Triangle, a terrifying secret waits for them both. A secret that doesn't just threaten their love, but their lives...and the very heart of TRAIT itself.
