Genre: Paranormal Romance
Book Length (Est.): 87 Pages
D.C. lawyer, Annie Birch, believes her life is one logical assessment after another. That changes, however, on the day she accidentally teleports during a high-profile negotiation. Knowing her new power must be a side effect after miraculously getting healed by the Incan Mother Earth goddess doesn’t help matters. Annie has already seen how emerging powers like hers also come with psycho villains that are bent on destroying her, as well as the corporeal world.
The icing on the cupcake of her ridiculous day is two gorgeous men who show up on her doorstep, both vying for her attention. Now, her choices involve much more than her oft-neglected libido. Annie is tasked to play a role in the Incan prophecy, which she prefers to watch from the sidelines. Will she stick to her safe, legal path? Or will she defy all logic to experience the decidedly more fun adventures being thrust her way?

Annie understands magic exists. She’s seen it firsthand. But now that she’s experiencing powers of her own she doesn’t want to accept the fact she may have been meant to have them.
Sifting through space, without warning, is becoming more and more dangerous as she can’t control when it will happen or where she will end up. Thankfully, time and time again the sexy stranger known as Stone is there to help her and some cases shroud them from watchful eyes. Too bad that power only works on humans.
“This one lies. He will only bring pain.” Stone glared at Tyler, before addressing Annie and adding, “I will take care of you. If you let me.”
With a determined man wanting to be her roommate and a mysterious stranger always showing up when she needs him Annie is confused on who to trust. Last time she trusted a stranger she ended up trapped inside black sludge that almost cost her life. This time she’ll have to trust herself to make the correct decision.
“If history were repeating itself, one her destined mate; and the other was a crazy religious zealot who would try to kill her.”
For a novella this packs quite the little punch. Annie’s Defiance is filled with suspense, intrigue, and an intense sexual desire that crosses lifetimes. Seeing it finally fulfilled is a sweet perfection.
“Don’t you see? Your new powers canoot be a coincidence. You’re Nature’s girl, now, and I’m taking that as a sign that all hell won’t break loose if I act on my feelings.”
I really enjoy this series and I’m looking forward to reading the next book, Cadence’s Cauldron.
My Favorite Moment: I love where her ‘safe’ place is and when she lands there with Stone and they try to get out it turns into a comedy of events…but one that ends in a searing hot passion that will heat up the pages.
