The three of them have known each other since adolescence, but Scott whisked Calla away before Jason could even begin to make sense of, and act on, the tender feelings he has for Calla.

Will they find another way out? If not, how long until they give in to the demands, and what will become of their relationship after?

In the 2090’s, mind manipulating “4M” devices are used extensively for “rehabilitation” and have advanced to the point of a bold new usage – breaching the guardian dimension or, as some call it, supernatural exposures.
Coming of age in the 2090’s, friends Marcus, Randi, Vamir and Meagan soon find themselves working at a prestigious government-funded supernatural research facility. Something goes wrong after Marcus’ very first “exposure.” His friends watch in disbelief as other employees mysteriously die right after their 4M experiences. It is not clear whether they’re victims of machine malfunctions, the guardians or something else.
During the mayhem, Randi and Meagan find the “something more” in their relationship that Randi has been longing for all along. Like their favorite song, it’s para, para, paradise. But something connected to the research program dooms the girls’ alliance.
The four friends’ relationships are tested as they attempt to work together to figure out why people in the program have been dying for eight years and what can be done to right some of the damages. The answers lie in where the 4M machines can go.
Obsidian Raines is everything I hate in a new neighbor. He’s smart, sexy, and a wealthy vampire. Now, I know what you’re thinking, he sounds hot, right? Well, he is hot, but that’s not the point. If you were a nymph you would understand. Life for us is no picnic; most of us end up stalkers, sex addicts, and prostitutes. I am no exception to this rule, which is why I was sent to the middle of nowhere Alabama to be alone. How was I supposed to know that he would inadvertently destroy all of my therapist’s progress with the first word that came out of his brooding, sarcastic mouth?
In between Obsidian and my new friendship with Alpha werewolf, Oswin Morris, I’m pretty sure that my ‘punishment’ will turn out to be a catastrophe only a nymph could be capable of.
