Enoch is tested.

His brother is human, the thing he hates. He watches as the brother he knew is stripped away by his love for Clara. He’s never hated someone as much as he hated her…but the bond forced him to not only want to protect her, but feel things he never had before.

When a girl needs his help, that split second decision changes his whole world in one instant. 
A Devourer’s Fate…

~ Devour (Devoured #1)  ~

Devour by Shelly Crane

Clara has it all. A wrestling star boyfriend, popular friends, all the right school activities…pretty much a perfect life…up until her parents died. Now she lives with the Pastor and his family and though they take good care of her, she feels alone. Then her boyfriend, Tate, starts to show signs of trouble when a new guy, Eli, comes to town. Clara is fascinated with him but hides it until something happens. Eli confesses to her that she gives him something he’s never had before…something he needs. Everything is about to change for this normal pretty popular girl in a supernatural way.

~ Consume (Devoured #2)  ~

Consume by Shelly Crane

Eli and Clara’s story continues as she tries to finish high school. Eli is as over protective as ever and Tate and his group of friends are no help. They wait for the Horde, always looking over their shoulder. But the ever annoying but strangely prophetic bird begins to become more of a chatter box and Eli learns something that could change some things. Not just for him and Clara, but Devourers everywhere.

Then an unexpectedness guest comes forcing Eli to flee with Clara, leaving her temporary family behind. She is thrown into his world of underground ‘traitors’ and learns much of his past. They meet many new people and creatures along the way to freedom. But when tragedy strikes the two, will Clara see the monster in Eli? Can she handle his strange world and awful past? Will one of them lose their life forever…

Excerpt

I fed on her terror and fright and it tasted like heaven in my mouth. But as I looked down at that woman who had just given herself to me, and I hadn’t even had to persuade her to, it washed over me all at once how I didn’t really want to hurt her. That I wanted to hurt people, but not her. Not really. I had gotten everything I needed from her without doing that, hadn’t I? I was full and sated. Now I was just letting my true nature take over, letting the Devourer in me take over.

But wasn’t that what I was supposed to do? I looked down at that woman and was so confused. I cursed Clara and Eli and all their love and human bullcrap for turning me into the thing that I was now.

No. I realized then that this was my turning point. That if I let this girl go, that I would be just like my brother one day and that wasn’t what I wanted. I was not going to be some human. I was a Devourer. My chin ached from clenching it so tightly. I turned my glare fully on her and knew that honestly it wasn’t her fault, but she was about to pay the price for my brother’s mistake.

“I’m sorry, love.” I lifted her by her arms and then leaned into her, pressing her to the wall.

“For what?” her small voice asked, falsely reassured by my about-face. “What are you doing to me?”

“I’m sorry that our night is just beginning.”

She seemed to understand and her face crumpled. “Please. I’m sorry for whatever I said to—”

“It’s not you,” I grinned as evilly as I could muster, “it’s me.”

Emma knows better than most that life can change from one second to the next. Mason knows that guilt can make you change so much, that you don’t even recognize yourself in the mirror. When they found each other, they knew that life had given them a second chance.

But can one night, one second, one misunderstanding change everything?

Excerpt

For the first time in a long time, I felt like I could breathe. I felt like I wasn’t being smashed and pressed, draining me of any and everything. For the first time, I felt like my life wasn’t a testament to my guilt and shame; it was a testament to how love finds you in the strangest places, and hope clings to us in the nooks and crannies we never think to look.

These are 12 separate Christmas novellas (not an anthology or box set) that are all releasing today! Some of the novellas are stand-alone and some are related to that author’s existing series. We’re highlighting one of the 12 with an excerpt and the information about that title. Then you can check out each of the titles below!

These novellas are sure to get you ready for whatever you have planned for the holidays. All For You by Marquita Valentine

*All For You is proud to be a part of The 12 NA’s of Christmas* 12 New Adult Novellas. 12 Best Selling Authors. November 2013.

Bully. Tormentor. Lover. West Diaz has been all of these things to me. After being gone for two years, he’s back, begging for my forgiveness. And not just my forgiveness… He wants more. He wants… Me.

About Marquita Valentine:

New York Times Bestselling Author, Marquita Valentine, writes sexy heroes that make you swoon and sassy heroines that make you laugh. She’s the author of the bestselling contemporary romance series, Holland Springs, and the new adult romance series, Boys of the South.

Marquita met her husband aka Hot Builder at Sonic when they were in high school. She suggests this location to all of her single friends in search of a good man–and if that doesn’t work, they can console themselves with cheesy tatertots. She lives in North Carolina in a very, very small town with Hot Builder and their two children.

Excerpt

He dares to brush his thumb over my lower lip and I fight the urge to bite him. “Oh, I mean it, sweetheart. Unfortunately, this mature guy needs your permission to follow through.” “My what?” I croak. “Permission.” He lets go of me and steps back. My traitor of a body misses his touch, misses his kisses and warmth. I’m sick for feeling this way. There has to be something wrong with a girl that can manage to nurse a crush and a hatred for the boy who gave her the first real kiss of her life. “Without it, I’m just a bunch of words,” he says softly. “Words can repair or tear down,” I remind him. “True,” he agrees, nodding a little. “But imagine what actions combined with words can do.” Memories of that night hit me, like the bags of dirt and grass Charlie and her friends had thrown at me, had smashed into my face, my hair, and clothes. Filthy Slut! Whore! Stay the hell away from my boyfriend. Despite the first instinct to run, my limbs are frozen. They’re locked and bound by our shared past. “I don’t have to imagine. I already know.” His face pales a little, but his gaze never wavers. “So do I.”
