Bloodswell... in Commercial Press book shops now

bloodswell1012D 2Sunlight floods my head and the thought leaps like a bird,
soaring, speeding, singing: together forever.

Anna Wang meets Steel Tang.

They are soulmates who share past lives.

This time round, she's a schoolgirl and he's a wealthy paranormal. Problems with family and friends divide them.

Then Anna's life takes a scary but thrilling turn. Steel awakens her sexuality but their love is thwarted by his bloodlust. It takes murder and a drugs bust for the lovers to discover their destiny, for now.

Bloodswell is a story of dangerous secrets, intense friendships and fatal attraction.
