The Haunted Hollow ~ Book II
Before My World Turned Blue
What if the impossible was just a kiss away?
Long before she became the witch of the Haunted Hollow, Ruby Radley was just a girl in love with the wrong boy. Step into the past and find out if Ruby is doomed to become the terrifying Scheherazade or if, with a little help from unexpected places, she can change her destiny.
It’s 1942 and Ruby, a beautiful heiress to a massive family fortune and the step-granddaughter of a powerful necromancer, has no say in man she marries. She’d tried sabotage, prayer, even charms and hexes and nothing has succeeded in preventing her impending marriage to a man she hates. Secretly in love with town outcast, Justin Wyatt, Ruby finally turns to morally ambiguous shadow magic in a desperate attempt to rewrite her fate. But all magic has a price.
Justin Wyatt knows he has no chance with a girl like Ruby and is headed off to war with nothing to come home to. Until Ruby turns a farewell with friends into the most incredible night of his life. And the strangest. When a time traveling detective from the future and two meddling ghosts get involved, who knows how events will unfold this time. What price is Ruby willing to pay and how far is Justin willing to go for love?
“We’re playing a four dimensional chess game, with an opponent we can’t see and don’t yet know anything about, someone determined to destroy time and our entire universe. He or she can see far ahead of us, we can only look back on tangled timelines. You may think Scheherazade is your enemy, and yes, in many ways she is, but have you stopped to consider that if Justin had survived the war and came back to her, maybe Ruby’s future would have been different?”
Praise for Before My World Turned Blue
"This is a well written, complex, and riveting story. Beware: there are lots of story strands that will secure you in a web of pain, deceit, and regret. But there is also love and while it did not conquer all just yet, it did manage to take a bite out of evil and create the possibility that in the future Love can win."
