Darkly Devoted (Exclusive to Wattpad Paid Stories)
Vivienne Salome and Blake Thorne are childhood friends. After he mysteriously “dies” due to a supposed vampire attack, she moves away and meets a female friend named Allison Devon. Vivienne comes across Blake again at a ball on her eighteenth birthday. She finds out that he is obsessed with avenging his late father’s death and her best friend Allison Devon is implicated in helping him with his plans. Along the way, they meet Julian Namura, who is serving Maglania Sarastri (the woman Blake believes is guilty of killing his father).
Love of my Death (WATTPAD PAID STORIES)
Vivienne discovers she has the power to control demons. A bond is formed between a human and demon using a piece of metal. Only special humans are able to do this. Demonic blood tends to drive the drinker insane so a bond with a human is necessary to keep the drinker or vampire from going crazy. This is because the vampire draws a life force from the human (only special humans called Orlins are able to provide that life force).
In Manna City, Orlins are bound to rich demonic masters who drain them of their life force and eventually kill them. A piece of metal, usually made of Janvier silver, is used to form the bond. In Manna City, once the bond is formed, the chain is given to the demon to hold. In Remin, Vivienne discovers that when the Orlin holds onto the chain, they are able to command the vampire or demon using the power of their wills. Once the chain is taken out of the Orlin’s possession or destroyed through fire, they lose that ability.
One True Frenemy (WATTPAD PAID STORIES)
Vivienne discovers she has the power to absorb demonic energy but only in particular instances.
Rose and Thorne
Blake finds out Vivienne is actually the daughter of his enemy Gabriel Balan. Her real name is Melody Balan. When he finds out, she’s already three months pregnant with his child. Gabriel kidnaps Melody at the end of the book but Blake thinks she betrayed him and ran off with her father. He is aided by his childhood friend Alesandra Janvier.
