Woman King

Beneath the fog of San Francisco lurks a hidden world that controls our fate.


Nobody who works with superstar political consultant Olivia Shepherd knows that she has supernatural empathic abilities—and that’s just how she likes it. But when she wakes up one morning to find Elsa, an ancient time-walker, standing in her kitchen, Olivia can no longer ignore her gifts or the mystical path that awaits her.

Soon she is plunged into the hidden world of powerful “Others” who operate beneath the dense fog of San Francisco. Drafted to work for the Council, a shadowy organization that controls the fate of humanity, Olivia must decide whether to dedicate herself to its cause. Complicating matters further is Olivia’s new love interest, William, a centuries-old vampire who is far too jaded to take an interest in human affairs. As shocking details from Olivia’s own past emerge and her role in the world begins to take shape, will she rise to the challenge of her destiny?

Book One of the Dark Horse Trilogy, WOMAN KING is a story of personal discovery, intrigue and love that will transport readers from the dark, mossy hollows of Golden Gate Park, to the subterranean pools of Hearst Castle, and then on to the streets of Paris, where dramatic confessions reveal long-kept secrets that will change Olivia’s fate forever.
