During a period of economic and literary unrest, author Carrie Butler persevered, winning victories against mediocre writing and cliché paranormal characters. She fearlessly annihilated weasel words and blasted bad grammar back into the dark ages. And she landed a publisher.

With the release of her debut novel, she has changed the world as we know it.

Behold, the future of paranormal romance...

2013: Strength, Mark of Nexus 1

When college student Rena Collins finds herself nose-to-chest with the campus outcast, she’s stunned. Wallace Blake is everything she’s ever wanted in a man—except he can’t touch her. His uncontrollable strength, a so-called gift from his bloodline, makes every interaction dangerous. And with a secret, supernatural war brewing among his kind, there’s no time to work it out. To keep Wallace in her life, Rena will have to risk a whole lot more than her heart.
