Publisher: Papoti Books
Evangeline finally got what she longed for—the cursed pendant off her neck and Caden in her arms—only it came at a steep price. An unknown poison now courses through her body, slowly morphing her into something no one but the Fates can foresee.She has her suspicions, though...and if she is right, it will spell certain ruin for her and Caden. But she won’t last long enough to realize that, if Viggo and Mortimer uncover the treasonous secrets she keeps from them– that Veronique, no longer entombed, is now in the torturous clutches of the witches and the People’s Sentinel, or that she is protecting a Sentinel within their very midst.
Always the naive human caught in the vampires’ web of deceit, Evangeline is now weaving her own dangerous web so she can keep her friend alive, rescue Veronique, and stop a seemingly inevitable war from erupting. But can her honor handle the depths of duplicity to which she must descend, in order to be in league with the vampires?
Dark and gripping, riddled with angst, Allegiance will have readers anxiously turning pages to find out if Evangeline can survive, or if she’ll spiral into disaster.

Thank you to The Book Lover's Report for hosting me on my Allegiance Tour! Today's post is about what inspired me to write Allegiance and my favorite pastime.
Inspiration for ALLEGIANCE: I realized that I needed a third and fourth book to the Causal Enchantment series halfway through plotting Asylum (the second). I felt that Allegiance couldn't be the end, that there was a critical piece left to tell. I wanted to give the relationships a chance to grow before "fate" hit them hard (Book 4).
In Allegiance, Evangeline is finally reconnected with Caden and the pendant is off. Of course, nothing is ever easy for Evangeline. Allegiance gives readers a chance to see her tested and almost break under the strain of this dark world. It also shows her grow and change from the naïve girl who follows blindly in Anathema to the woman who resists the trap of fear and who must become as deceptive as the vampires in order to protect those she loves.
Favorite Pastime: Writing is Numero Uno for me. I wish I could just write all day, every day (but then I'd lose all grasp of reality and my wrists would burn something fierce). When I'm not writing? (or working, spending time with the kids, sleeping…), I love to read and can easily spend an entire day curled up in a chair, carving through a book until my eyes cross. Living in Canada and dealing with long winters, there's nothing better than sitting in front of a fire with hot chocolate and a good story while it snows outside.
I also have a penchant for decorating. I don't know how many walls I've painted or home furnishings shops I've visited or dollars I've wasted. I get bored very easily. When I was a kid, I would rearrange my bedroom at least once a year. Now I have a house of my own and a bank account… look out. J
