The police have declared Tommy a runaway, but Max’s gut tells him otherwise. While he’s highly skeptical of Theresa’s abilities, her visions provide the only clue as to who’s taken Tommy.

Em Petrova | Meet Evangeline Mayer, Heroine of Runes
Author Guest / October 5, 2010

Evangeline Mayer is a songwriter, former party girl, newly Made immortal, and woman in love. In love with two men, that is. Many people believe you can only love one person at a time, but with this much testosterone and rippling abs so near, how could she resist? Her longtime mortal boyfriend Sean Livingston is ruggedly handsome with a protective nature. He’s a kick-ass martial artist and the deejay every woman in the club wants to sink her nails into. He’s a family man and longs for a commitment with Evangeline, but he’s willing to take it slow for her. And the fact that he can make a mean cup of coffee doesn’t hurt.

If you could choose two mates, what traits…

But it’s also an internal voyage, requiring a dive deep into the well of her passions and her fears. In my debut novel, ACCORDING TO JANE, it took my heroine two decades to resolve one important thread on her path toward greater self understanding. Even with the assistance of the spirit of Jane Austen, whose ghost whispered dating advice only she could hear, my heroine still needed to learn to listen to the voice of her own heart before she could come…
