About Me

My photo
My name is not really Erica Stevens, it is a pen name that I chose in memory of two amazing friends lost too soon.I was born in New York and moved to Mass as a child. I spent my time growing up between NY and Mass so I have some interesting times when sports games roll around. I was fortunate enough to marry my best friend over two years ago and I don't know what I'd do without him. I have a large, crazy, fun loving family that just loves to laugh. My parents are the strongest people I know. I have an older brother and sister, and a younger sister, who have blessed me with many nieces and nephews and great nieces and nephews. I am nowhere near as old as the great nieces and nephews make me sound. I love to read and have wanted to be a writer since I was nine years old. I also write more adult romance novels under the pen name of Brenda K. Davies.

Kindred 5, Teaser 1 and Title.

The final book in The Kindred Series will be entitled Phoenix Rising. Here is the first teaser from it. *This has not been edited yet and is subject to change.


   “We have to think of something, we have too,” Annabelle muttered. “Devon cannot know yet, he’ll kill us all if he does.”

   Chris was shaking so bad that his muscles throbbed and his teeth chattered together. He managed to get his hands braced against the floor, even though his arms shook so intensely that he almost fell over again. He even managed to raise his head an inch off the ground as he struggled to regain control of himself.

   “We have to get back out there, we can’t leave them alone,” Annabelle continued. “We’ll figure it out later, somehow.”

   Gathering his strength, Chris finally managed to get a breath into his tortured lungs, was finally able to get words past his constricted throat and clenched teeth. “He already knows.”

   A sad look of resignation settled over Julian’s face. “No.” Annabelle’s gaze darted to the covered window. “Oh yes, I would know also,” she breathed.

   Chris bent over again, his forehead touched the ground. A bellow rent the night with enough force that it rattled the windows within their panes. Chris couldn’t breathe anymore; he could barely think straight, there was nothing left to him as the force of Devon’s rage and grief shattered him. Julian cursed loudly as he stormed across the store. With a quick flick of his wrist he ripped one of the boards from a window.

   “He’s going to kill them all. Including us,” Julian muttered.

   “Liam.” Annabelle hurried to Julian’s side; she was shaking as she pulled the curtain back. “What do we do?”

   Chris couldn’t see out the window, he couldn’t even get his head off the floor to look at them. “My God!” Annabelle gasped. Whatever she saw caused her voice to shake as she took a small step back from the window.

   “There is no God here,” Julian remarked coldly, his voice still hoarse with unshed tears. “If there was…” his voice trailed off as his eyes briefly settled on Cassie’s lifeless body.

  3. This series is one of the more uniqe vampire series I have read. I have seen the hunters made from vampires and humans but only by demonic contract not by experimentation which puts it into a whole nother ball park
