Blurb:

She stands between a daemon’s revenge and earth’s survival…

With her eighteenth birthday approaching, Rayne Calin-De Luca is feeling the pressure. Marked as the Chosen by an ancient prophecy, she and her parents—Guardian Witch Arianna and vampire prince Andreas—have desperately searched the world for the secrets behind the coming battle, when the ancient plague daemon Maelrad will break loose from Hell to wreak worldwide vengeance. So far, the means to defeat him have eluded them, and the inevitable conflict draws nearer with each passing hour…

As Maelrad’s power grows stronger, the demon’s poison is seeping through the veil and polluting the earth with violence. His minions openly stalk Rayne, her family, and friends. As things turn from bad to worse, Rayne’s confidence wavers. How can one novice witch defeat a centuries-old master daemon? She knows the terms of the prophecies forming the Esielen Triad cannot be changed. Armed only with her magic and a dagger, she is destined to face Maelrad alone.

For fans of kickass witches and the compelling men who fight alongside them comes the final book in the Guardian Witch universe. Ring of Fire winds up the action-packed sequel trilogy to the original series with an explosive conclusion.

Excerpt:

(Rayne’s post-graduation senior party on the river bank is interrupted by the baying of hellhounds. Her bodyguard Kade wants her to take off for home, but Rayne knows she has to keep the hounds away from her human friends until help arrives. Lex and RJ, the werelion twins raised like brothers to her, agree, and Kade gives in, knowing they’ll do it anyway.)

“You can still protect me. While I chase the hellhounds.” Rayne spun away and ran toward the Goshen Park fence before Kade changed his mind. The hounds were still inside the park but headed this way. Unless she stopped or distracted them, the devil’s spawn would sail right over the fence and create a bloodbath. Maybe all she’d have to do was let them see her, then run like the wind. Or she could fry them with witch fire. Except she’d never actually used the crimson fire on anyone. Stunners, yes, but never the lethal level of magical fire.

She gathered herself to vault the tall fence, hands on top, then one foot to push off and land on the far side. As soon as they reached the trees, Kade and the lions shifted into their furry forms. They could have easily outrun her, but they stayed close, the lions winging out to the sides and Kade taking point. The baying of the hounds grew louder. Rayne moved toward the sound, angling north through the deepest part of the woods. The creatures had probably picked up her scent by now, and she slowed, waiting for them to appear. Kade, RJ, and Rex closed in, forming a line as they waited.

One, two, three seconds.

The first black demon dog bounded into sight. Rayne knocked it back with a blue stunner. It yipped and fell, just as the rest of the pack crashed out of the underbrush. Rayne and her bodyguards whirled and ran toward the west gate and home. Hopefully, her parents would find them soon.

The hounds took the bait. The chase led them away from the party on the river bank, but the creatures drew closer with every passing second. Rayne didn’t have the speed or stamina to outrun a hellhound. They’d soon have to stand and fight.

Suddenly Kade broke off and turned as if to attack the closing pack.

“No, Kade!” Rayne screamed. “That’s suicide. The fountain’s just ahead. We can defend it.”

He growled as if in protest, but fell into step behind her, guarding the flank, and followed as she sprinted toward the swan-shaped west fountain.

The water was turned off for the night, and Rayne scrambled over the stone seating and low wall, splashed through the shallow water, and climbed onto the back of the swan. Steadying herself with one hand on the swan’s neck, she shot a short burst of crimson fire at the hellhound leader nipping at Kade’s heels. The leader yipped, whined, and rolled over, biting frantically at the flames, and his pack mates hesitated long enough for Lex, RJ, and Kade to form a line of defense on top of the stone seating.
