Note: The author's brand of "paranormal fiction" tends to be more complex/spiritual > commercial (lots of ground to cover!). The focus is on the story, not romantic/erotic fluff. Please visit the author's website for more info/excerpts -- jessINK.com/kylie.htm
"...the author really hits her stride in paranormal stories." -- Review @ Bitten by Books
"[Please] keep up the good work . . . the world can certainly use some more authentic, original work like yours, rather than the same old re-packaged mass-market pulp." -- TGirl Revelations / Bibrary.com
"[The Devilin Fey] was erotic without being pornographic, emotional without being sappy, spiritual without being preachy...just enjoyable reading. Kudos to Jess Scott." -- Paul G. / Amazon.com review, July 2010
[1: Kylie (Intro)]
"Bless me Father, for I have sinned."
Mikhail begins his confession by making the sign of the cross while the priest gives him a blessing.
"What is your confession?" Father Abagnale, ever-so-kind, waits quietly and patiently.
Mikhail runs a hand along the back of his neck, a tired hand with chipped fingernails. Nail biting's a nasty habit of his when he's stressed and anxious.
I stay where I am, hidden in the shadows, wings arched and folded back slightly.
I stay because I know both these men.
Oh, Mikhail--what grave sins have you committed?
My hidden, crouching body leans forward to eavesdrop on the rest of the confession, ears ready to pick up all of the juicy details of gossip gold.
