Book Description

Aria Darwin has always considered herself cursed. She is obsessed with finding a cure for the bad boyfriend plague. Worse yet, she’s in denial about her weird abilities and terrified of her mysterious stalker who causes the earth to quake violently with the snap of his finger.

With her two best friends, Aria enters her first semester of college armed with a “no more men” pact in an effort to demagnetize the sleaze balls. Unfortunately, the agreement proves difficult when she meets Liam, a charming foreign exchange student, on the first day of school. 

Aria quickly discovers that Liam is not only Mr. Perfect, but he also somehow ignites her supernatural side. Upon the invitation of her dream guy, Aria travels to Ireland through the study abroad program, dragging her friends along with her. But her world of euphoric bliss quickly comes crashing down as she uncovers the truth about her past, revealing who she really is and what she was born to do.

Excerpt

I felt the water start to creep its way down my throat. I had been trying frantically to hold my breath, but my lungs screamed for relief. A searing heat burned my esophagus as the murky liquid filled my insides. But the relief never came, my body greedily demanded oxygen as I flailed and thrashed, desperate to break the surface. Invisible thorny vines angrily wrapped up my legs. They pierced my flesh deeper with every urgent kick, pulling me farther into the depths of the river. My body twitched, my muscles seized, and I slumped in defeat, slipping into unconsciousness.

Suddenly, I felt fire scrape across my cheek, as the sand raked over it cutting into my skin. I landed hard on my back, knocking water from my lungs. A tantrum of gagging coughs allowed small pinches of air through, but my breathing was too labored and I couldn’t find the strength to open my eyes. The sun flushed my cheeks in an effort to burn my pale face when someone shook me furiously, calling my name, demanding I wake up. I felt electricity lightly tip-toe down my spine and my heart thud dimly in my ears. For one brief moment, something stirred inside my soul and I slowly lifted my lids to face the light. The sun assaulted my pupils, causing blurry spots across my vision. His shadow cast over me in the perfect cloudless summer day. A flaming black halo framed his hazy face. The angel of death had come to take me away. I felt weakness wash over me, and my eyes rolled into the back of my head falling back into darkness. Somehow, I always thought that when I died it would be at night, under the stars.

Jenna Bernel lives tucked along the bluffs, spending her days lost in the world of fantasy. When she’s not writing, she’s reading and drinks way to much caffeine to satisfy her love of both. Growing up she traveled extensively through the competitive dance circuit, unaware that at the time it would provide her future career an endless stream of inspiration for the captivating drama of Young Adult Fiction.

I enjoy all things travel, food and adventure.  While doing research for a trip to Ireland the idea for my book series, The Secret Trinity, came to life and would be the beginning of my greatest adventure yet.
