This is a New Adult, Paranormal Romance, and Carrie is the talented author who also happened to design the cover of my debut novel Illicit Love.
Courage is Book 2, in the Mark of Nexus series.
Rena Collins never thought she’d long for the past—back when affection from Wallace, her freakishly strong boyfriend, was the most dangerous aspect of her life. But now that the human-altering organization known as ERA has gone on the offensive, nothing is safe. Her bloodline is exposed, her relationships torn apart, and just when it seems like things can’t get any worse, ERA ups the ante. To save mankind from forced evolution, Rena will have to mend her broken ties and form a resistance… hand-in-hand with the one she hurt most.
Book 1, Strength, is available now.
