About the Book
Twenty-eight year Emmy Hughes has never quite fit in---she's six feet tall, dark-skinned, and sometimes daydreams of being Galadriel from Lord of the Rings. But when she is badly injured in a car accident that kills her mother, Emmy does not dream of fantastical worlds anymore, but just wishes her shattered life will return to normal.
Unfortunately, normalcy is the last thing in store for her once she meets Lake George's newest arrival, Dr. Gilead Knightly. Granted immortality from a line of people whose Great Ancestor marched into the Garden of Eden and ate from the Tree of Life, Gilead has been alive for centuries and has met everyone from Nubian kings to Napoleon.
But Gilead and his eccentric family are also hunted beings, because God considers the Edenites' acquisition of immortality to be theft. And for thousands of years He has dealt with their transgression by sending each of them a "Glitch" ---an unsuspecting human meant to retrieve this stolen "property" and kill them off.
When Emmy discovers that she is Gilead's Glitch, she is not only thrown into a world of immortals who eat bone marrow, panthers who read minds, and a family whose blood is made of pulsing gold, but she finds herself the target of Gilead's vengeance: he must get rid of her before she gets rid of him.
Easier said than done. Because Glitches are not only an Edenite's greatest threat---they're also their greatest love.

About the Book
Like a bee suckling the honey from its hive
I thirst for the sweet nectar your body exudes.
Overwhelmed by the taste, I am insane with erotic thoughts of overdosing on your sugary treats.
Your inner core envelopes my being
I pant at visions of our sexual explorations.
Allow my lips to roam the entirety of your beauty.
Drizzle my tongue with your candy coated love.
Can’t you see I am addicted to the passion of you?
One tantalizing lick is not enough to satisfy my desires.
Stroking fingertips bring forth
luscious honey gushing from your inner most secrets.
I am in need of a fix, a high only you can supply.
Bodies molded together to fit as two puzzle pieces.
I am your muse; you are my clammed pearl.
Together we are the essence of arousal.
Antagonize my senses with your flirtatious sexuality.
Tease me with your contours, provoke me with soft kisses.
Overindulge in my honey-like aroma.
Savor the aftertaste of our fiery intimacy.
Your sweet nectar of love infatuates and captivates.

It is primarily a story about friendship and how sometimes you can count on friends to keep your secrets and sometimes help you do outrageous and even unlawful things. It also gives a message about the importance of participating in the welfare of your community.
