Excerpt from Echoes of Memories:

The air left my lungs in a rush as my heart broke watching him suffer. I stepped inside, against his wishes, and inched toward him. “Noah,” I said just above a whisper. “Please, let me help you.”

He shook his head. “It’s too dangerous! I’m not right, Elsa. I’m not! Something is wrong with me! Oh, Gaia! Help me, please!”

A tear slipped down my cheek as I knelt in front of him, lowering myself farther to sit on my knees. “Mea lux, cor meum. Sum vestrum semper. I cannot go where you are not. We are bound by the anulum de lux. Your trials are my trials. Remember?”

As I spoke, his shaking stopped, and his breathing slowed. I slid my hands along his and wove my fingers through his. He took in my gaze. The deepest ocean blue swallowed by black. No colorful specks, no beautiful gold or silver. Just a black abyss that stared back at me. His eyelids were red and raw. His skin lacked the color it once had. Even his hair seemed duller than it should’ve been. His veins stuck out of his neck and forehead in blue-green. “I’m a monster now,” he whispered. “I feel it.”

I shook my head and shushed him. “I love you still.”

Echoes of Memories (Nepherium #2)
Adult Fantasy
Published: 31 July 2014

Traitor. Liar. That’s what they call me. No one believes me. Not even my team. I know it’s up to me to get the answers. To stop the corruption and unlock my memories. I’ll do anything to get them back. Even if my hands will be covered in blood.

Elsa's every move is scrutinized. She’s labeled a traitor by those she sought for protection, and kept from her family and team. Regaining memories has been a slow process. Too slow for the Council's liking, taking matters into their own hands.

The new captain has history with Elsa and operates with a hidden agenda. Even Elsa’s team reacts differently toward her. If only she could unlock her memories. Everything is playing right into Alexander's hand, even amassing an army with unconventional methods, designed to annihilate the Nepherium—starting with Noah. Elsa will do anything to stop Alexander ... even kill.

Book Trailer Reveal: Oblivion by Jessica Wood (@jesswoodauthor)

About the Author:

Jessica Wood writes contemporary romance novels.

While she has lived in countless cities throughout the U.S., her heart belongs to San Francisco. To her, there’s something seductively romantic about the Golden Gate Bridge, the steep rolling hills of the city streets, the cable cars, and the Victorian-style architecture.

She loves a strong, masculine man with a witty personality. While she is headstrong and extremely independent, she can’t resist a man who takes control of the relationship, both outside and inside of the bedroom. ;)

She loves to travel internationally, and tries to plan a yearly trip abroad. She also loves to cook and bake, and—to the benefit of her friends—she loves to share. She also enjoys ceramics and being creative with her hands. She has a weakness for good (maybe bad) TV shows; she’s up-to-date on over 25 current shows, and no, that wasn’t a joke.

And it goes without saying, she loves books—they’re like old and dear friends who have always been there to make her laugh and make her cry.

The one thing she wishes she had more of, is time.

I wake up to a life and a man that I can’t remember.

He says his name is Connor Brady—the tall, sexy CEO of Brady Global, Inc.

He says my name is Olivia Stuart, and that I was recently in an accident and lost my memory.

Also, he says I’m his fiancĂ©.

Although I don’t remember Connor, or anything about my past, something about him seems familiar. He is kind, protective, and breathtakingly-gorgeous. But there is just one problem—he seems too perfect.

As I begin to rebuild my relationship with Connor and accept the idea that I may never remember my past, I unexpectedly meet Ethan James.

Ethan is the mysterious, rebellious stranger who pushes my boundaries to their limits and makes me feel alive. As our lives collide time and time again, the bits and pieces of my past start to unravel, unearthing the secrets that have been buried deep inside my subconscious. With every new memory I gain about my past, I become more torn between the man who is my fiancé and the stranger who is the key to my past. Is my life with Connor really as perfect as he leads me to believe?
