Blood Entwines
by Caroline Healy

Book Description:
A dark compelling story of love and its more sinister elements...possession.

In the aftermath of a blood transfusion that saved her life, Kara feels different. Her senses are stronger ... she can hear whispered comments not meant for her ears ... she can hear the person following her. When Jack, her stalker, reveals himself and insists that Kara has something that belongs to him, she does her best to avoid him. But he’s determined to talk to her, convinced that they’re linked through the blood she received during her transfusion.

Jack is struggling against a dark and dangerous demon. His body is host to the evil power that wants Kara’s blood and will stop at nothing to get it. If Jack is able to gain control he can warn Kara. But which is stronger, the power of the blood they share or the force for evil. How can Kara help save Jack without risking her own life?

Excerpt from Blood Entwines

Chapter 1

Unbeknownst to Kara Bailey, it would take exactly two minutes and fifteen seconds for her to die.

Oblivious, she walked down the street, her eyes lowered and her pace even, the contents of her school satchel long forgotten. She was trying to make sense of what had happened earlier in biology class. Several thoughts crowded for attention at once.

We’re just friends.

Lab partners, that’s all.

Ashleigh is going to freak when she finds out.

A name repeated over and over, matching the rhythm of her footsteps.

Ben.

Shephard.

Ben.

Shephard.

One foot in front of the other.

Ben.

Shephard.

Ben.

Shephard.

Her brain teemed with questions. Why did he ask me? Why now? What about his stupid rule? Kara wasn’t sure how she was going to answer his proposition. A thrill of excitement zapped from the top of her head all the way to her toes. He was the hottest guy in her year.

But what about Ashleigh?

Her best friend would not be impressed.

Ben.

Shephard.

Ben.

Shephard.

The air smelled of damp autumn leaves. Stepping off the footpath Kara moved to cross the street. She didn’t see the car coming, failed to notice the shining front bumper as it sped towards her. She didn’t hear the screech of tyres or register the look of horror on the driver’s face when he realised he was going to hit her.

Ben.

Shephard.

Ben.

Shephard.

Over and over again in her mind.

It was the last thing Kara thought before slipping into total blackness.
