Emily didn't know that falling in love would place her smack-dab in the middle of a dicey game called deception. Or wake up one morning, shortly thereafter, wondering if she'd actually lost her mind!A KISS FOR EMILY is a thrilling YA paranormal romance, where discovering the paranormal is exciting for the reader, but life-threatening for Emily Stokes, the 17-yr. old high school student from Kansas.
After a good brushing and other bedtime rituals, I headed back to my bedroom. On the way, I noticed a dim glow coming from Kat's room.
"Are you still up?"
"Yeah, I'm not tired." She was watching a video on a small TV that sat upon her dresser.
"Guess what?" I taunted.
"You hit your head and now you don't remember who you are."
"Whatever," I sneered. "I met someone today." I whispered, almost like it was a secret.
"Kat sat up in her bed. "Who?"
"His name is Sam. Come here, I want to show you something. He gave me a flower." I grabbed her small hand and pulled her out from under her quilted bedspread. Grabbing my shirt from the back of my desk chair, I reached into the pocket to retrieve the delicate red bud from its place of safety. Only there were no soft petals. Instead, I felt...grit. I pulled the pocket open wide and peered into its depths. It was filled with dark, dry dirt.
"I must have lost it," I said disappointingly, shaking the dirt out into the wastebasket.
"It's just a stupid flower."
"And you're too little to understand."
She crossed her arms. "All right, tell me more."
"He's the cutest guy I've ever seen in my life. No one at T-West even begins to hold a candle next to him."
"Oh," she said. Then added, "Did ya kiss him?"
I imagined him and me in a romantic first kiss. "No."
Her eyes dimmed.
"But I'd like to."
Kat's nose crinkled.
