Detective Sydney Marr is having a very bad day. Her boss is on the warpath, she’s being treated for a werewolf bite, and her current case has hit a dead end. When her friend Erika talks Syd into going with her to Club Beam, she jumps at the chance, even if it means spending an evening without her spell arsenal. A high-class vampire bar and fetish club, Club Beam is fantasy made real.
Club owner and Dom Gideon Raines spies the red-haired beauty and is transfixed. A fight against a skillful murderer brings war for fae and vampire alike. Sometimes when you play with monsters, the monsters play back.
This book is dedicated to all of my readers. Writing under the Beyond Fairytales line and the creation of the Shadow World series was both fun and a challenge. When I was presented with the fairy tale "The Beam" I had to really think about how I wanted to portray the story. For those of you not familiar with the tale, it is a short piece about a woman who shows up a wizard and proves him to be a fraud. He gets his revenge in a very public way. How could I take this story and twist it into an urban fantasy setting and add a little kink to boot? I wanted a strong female character that could handle herself in a conflict, but still dealt with her own insecurities. Could she stand up to the opposing force in the story and somehow come out swinging? You bet.
Sydney is a fun and feisty heroine both witchy and quirky. Gideon is the perfect vampire alpha male Dom to curl her toes. Club Beam is a place of magic and mystery, where the Red Door overlooks the fun and frivolity of the main club floor. Fairy tales are for real here and some of them bite…and hard. The club is a refuge for vampire, fae and other mythical creatures; it is also a lure of many decadent delights.
I hope you will enjoy the introduction to my Shadow World series and return to Club Beam for many more adventures.

EXCERPT Sandy had trouble keeping up with her strange behaving friend. "What's your hurry?""We must have purple cookies. It's dangerous. I'm trying to find Choi Lin's."
In the beginning, God created man in
his image; from dust and ash, hope was cast.
Yet, as far as time remembers, in the
scrolls of history’s past, it was written that woman brought temptation to the
garden. Woman introduced death unto man. But have you forgotten about the trickster?
Was mortal destruction not his master plan?
There are those who say death is a
celebration. One soul’s defiant, heavy passing; another’s gentle ease into the
Light. Commemorations for the departed. Forgiveness of old transgressions. A
final rest for pity, the end to immortal strife. But is death just the
beginning? And who comes to collect you when you pass?
What happens to the worthy if the
Light turns against them? Do they stand their ground – Stay and fight? What
about those who seek no forgiveness? Do the deceiver’s minions scurry from the
darkness? Come and collect their next eternal victim? Is everlasting damnation
the deceased’s future plight?
My name is Faith Savage. I know what
it is to walk the dark shadows at the edge of destruction. To feel the presence
of The Collector in the night. I know what it is to bleed the dust of
life’s possibilities, to sift through the ash of mankind’s hopes and dreams. To
seek the evil that makes souls rot. It is here in this impossible darkness that
I hunt demons, searching for my own answers and retributions, in the battle for
It was written that each soul would
have a Guardian. A Warrior of Light to watch over it. Protect it. Be its shield
against the darkness, its sword against the fallen. But the days grew dark.
Man’s souls darker still. Many turned away from the Light of God, cast aside
His word and His love. And the Guardians rebelled.
Some say that this was his second
transgression. What led to his ultimate betrayal. Others say that he too was
but pawn in God’s glorious manipulation. A means to an end of man’s dark days.
One thing is certain, only God knows the truth of his story. Only He knows a
soul’s true worth and its fate.
My name is Faith Savage. In this
game of good and evil I’ve met the Guardian that God sent me. His story I am
just beginning to learn. His history, I am told, has marked him as damned. But,
everyone knows Christ died for the sinners. The only question that remains is,
could we forgive him if we controlled his fate?
There are those who say that we are
all God’s children. That the Blood of Christ released us from sins. But there
are others that hold to the original sins. Temptations purchased for a copper,
a penny, a fine golden coin. Even the priests bought and sold lies with the
silver kisses of thieves...
Some have written that from a garden
God created the first cast-off demon; a viper feigned in the guise of a woman.
Her kisses, once given, led to eternal damnation. And, from one sacred garden
to our Christ’s last temptation, a kiss by the wicked brought about mankind’s
salvation. Bought and paid for by greed, perhaps even envy – all impugnable
But when is a kiss just a kiss in
the game of redemption? What price does a man pay for the ultimate betrayal? Is
the cost greater than the price of his soul?
My name is Faith Savage. When
dealing with matters of faith, God, religion and demons, I’ve found there are
no easy answers. I’ve stumbled my way through Hell’s treacherous dark byways
seeking God and the answers to these and many other questions. I’ve learned
that nothing is as it seems when dealing with demons and Angels. And sometimes,
love and faith creates just another way to burn.
