But if there is any lesson she should heed since receiving her calling itís that everything can change in the blink of an eye. Soon a terrible new threat, unlike anything sheís ever encountered, causes her to make a gut-wrenching choice that will strip her of someone she holds dear.

In between dress fittings and rehearsal dinners Celeste will have to fend off attacking demons and leering pirates. As if the Dark Army wasn’t scary enough our heroine is faced with the horrifying trauma of attending a bachelorette party with her mom and watching Grams do Jello shots.

Raise your glass to the happy couple, and get ready for a wedding Conduit-style!

The Conduit
Book One in the Gryphon Series
By Stacey Rourke

The Conduit

All 18-year-old Celeste Garrett wants is to head off to college and make those fun, yet ill-advised, choices college kids are known for.  And maybe to spend some time with the hot cameraman she just met.  Instead, because of a pact her ancestors made in the 17th century with a mythical creature, she has to save the world.
While normal kids are slamming energy drinks and cramming for exams, Celeste will get her adrenaline rush fighting a fire breathing dragon.  She wants to meet friends in the quad to exchange lecture notes, but first she must exchange blows with a shapeshifting demon on the rooftop.  Life isn’t always fair for a superhero, but at least she doesn’t have to do it alone.  With her brother and sister as sidekicks, they alternate between saving lives and getting on each others’ nerves.  Together the trio encounters unspeakable odds, mystical forces and comes face-to-face with an image that will haunt them forever—their grandmother in a leopard print bikini.

Excerpt:

“Okay, little side note here. If a psychopathic killer asks if you want to see a trick, say no. That’s the smart thing to do. I, on the other hand, responded, ‘Bring it’.”

Embrace
Book Two in the Gryphon Series
By Stacey Rourke

EmbraceWhether she likes it or not, eighteen year old Celeste Garrett has come to terms  with being  the Chosen One. She knew having a “normal life” would be tricky,  between intense training  sessions and epic demonic battles, but she didn’t know  at what cost it would come. That is,  until a dear friend is harmed by the  malicious forces hunting her.
Now, she’d like nothing more than to retreat into a hermit lifestyle to prevent anyone else from getting hurt. But startling revelations, amazing new abilities, and mortifying moments in front of insanely hot guys won’t allow time for that. Soon, Celeste finds herself surrounded by darkness and wondering who she can trust—if anyone.

Excerpt: (I chose this excerpt because I can just imagine hearing Celeste say it to herself and it so incredibly awesome.  Makes humiliating yourself in front of a guy not seem so bad in comparison.)

With narrowed eyes, he peered past me to the counter.  ”Ya sure it’s broken?  Sounds like it’s on now.”
I turned my head in the direction of the counter.  He was right, something was whirring.  I could hear it, too.  But it wasn’t coming from the counter, or the DOA cappuccino machine.   It was closer than that.  Close enough that I could feel the vibration in my chest. 
Oh, sweet-mother-of-all-that’s-good-and-pure, IT’S ME!! I’m purring!
