“Hi I’m looking to find a CP that can partner up with me for long term. I write YA paranormal romance and YA/NA Contemporary romance novels and need someone that has similar tastes in reading and/or writing. To give you an idea for my work on my first novel, here is a brief synopsis:
Seventeen year old, Ren Pernell had a tough year when she lost her parents in a freak accident. Little did she know there are no such things as accidents.
Now in her world where only her supportive best friend Peyton and her brother Joshua were allowed, a stranger and old crush wiggles their way into her life. Is it a coincidence or a miracle that has been sent from above to bring her out of her stupor? Think again.
Secrets are revealed.
Strength is tested.
And Death once again enters her life.
Thank you and I’m looking forward to connecting with you!

For only their powers together can bring him to an end.

“Here’s the blurb:
Aaron Pilan is your average American Joe, 22 yrs old, passing his unremarkable days as a waiter in New York. On the way home from work at midnight he finds himself in the middle of a confrontation between undercover cops and a French escort named Michelle. Aaron is shot, by accident, and would’ve died if not for Michelle’s intervention.
As a result of her impetuous decision to save his life, Aaron awakes four days later as a vampire. Aaron dives head first into a hardcore learning curve of the particulars of vampiric life. He must adapt to his new status as a servant subject to Michelle’s authority of compulsion. She orders him around like a puppet on a string. He must learn to feed properly, without creating bloodslaves (humans addicted to the powerful drug-like effects of their venomous bite), and he’s now working as an escort in the sex trade–same as Michelle.
Amidst all the shocking and degrading adjustments, he finds that he’s falling in love. Aaron walks a tightrope of strictly controlled feeding regiments and intensely erotic sexual adventures while catering to the neurotic control-freak tendencies of his new master. He’s expected to obey or else, Michelle has vowed to eliminate Aaron if he proves too dangerous or difficult to control.
Can he manage all this and retain some portion of his humanity? Innocence is a luxury few can afford in the nightlife of New York City. In a world where sex, blood, and power over women is so readily accessible, Aaron struggles against the predatory instincts deeply rooted in his new psyche. He must find his way quickly, maintaining rigid self-control, or risk the consequences of Michelle’s wrath.”
