City Guard Elle Brown has one goal in life: to protect her kid sister, Emmie. Falling in love - and with a werewolf at that - was never part of the deal.
Life, however, doesn't always go to plan, and when Elle meets Clay, everything she thought about her world is thrown into turmoil. Everything, that is, but protecting Emmie, who is Graced with teal-colored eyes and an unknown power that could change their very existence. But being different is dangerous in their home city of Pinton, and it's Elle's very own differences that capture the attention of the Honorable Dante Kipling, a vampire with a bone-deep fascination for a special type of human.
Dante is convinced that humans with eye colors other than brown are unique, but he has no proof. The answers may exist in the enigmatic hazel eyes of Elle Brown, and he's determined to uncover their secrets no matter the cost...or the lives lost.

Graced by Amanda Pillar

GracedHer world was filled with magic, the paranormal and evil at every turn. When they say that the eyes are the windows to the soul, the color of those “windows” had better be brown, because any other would signal someone unique and different. In Pinton, different was dangerous. Elle Brown was a City Guard, a protector from things that go bump in the night, her life seemed pretty well mapped out for her, to live free, be strong and protect her young and very special sister from harm. She had no room I her life for love, but when it came prowling into her life, how could she stop herself from falling for Clay, a werewolf shifter?

Amanda Pillar’s debut novel, Graced, takes a different and fresh look at a world filled with vampires, werewolves and the “graced,” individuals feared for the powers they may possess.

Hang on for great world building, feel the tension that runs through the air, the electricity of fear and the strength of a determined young woman who will stop at nothing to keep her younger sister safe from harm, including risking her own life everyday. When her cold, yet powerful Grandmother sends Ella undercover in a vampire’s employ to discover what secrets he may be hiding, get ready for chaos and madness as Ella proves she is good at her job and better at sniffing out what was to remain hidden. Will she discover more than she bargained for? Will it put her young sister in danger? Is her grandmother more than a nasty and overbearing woman?

You’ll be amazed at the twists Amanda Pillar has in store for her readers in this engaging and often dark read! Ms. Pillar focuses on her characters and the tale they have to tell, letting the atmosphere rise up through their actions and thoughts like tendrils of smoke from a growing fire. A wonderfully magnetic read that may not end up where you might think!
