Beautiful Stranger

Book 0.5, The Marked Ones Trilogy - Thrilling Urban Fantasy with a Science Twist

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


Some wishes should really come with a warning label: “Warning! May cause untimely death!”

Geeky artist Patrick Connolly has been inexplicably drawn to his classmate Nualla since he first locked eyes with her three years earlier. There’s just one problem—he’s never actually spoken to her. However, when Nualla’s abusive ex corners her in the deserted hallway of their elite San Francisco private school, will Patrick finally find the courage to speak up?

This one decision could grant him his heart’s desire or bring about his untimely death. Because you see, his dream girl has secrets of her own…like the fact she isn’t even human.

Beautiful Stranger is the prequel novella to the fast-paced Marked Ones series. If you like spunky heroines, hot bishounen guys & thrilling urban fantasy with a science twist, then you’ll love this gripping New Adult Fantasy series. 

Perfect for fans of Shadowhunters, Toradora & Dragon's Gift: The Huntress.

Pick up Beautiful Stranger today & watch as this adorkable fish-out-of-water navigates the perils of the heart!
