Three paranormal novellas

Reap the Shadow, Slay the Light

I don’t know what I am, but I’m not human…and neither are the creatures that killed my mom. Running will only carry me so far because there’s a darkness within me, ready to destroy me, and a burning light, begging for escape. It’s the light that screams to my pursuers and works them into a frenzy. Though the darkness might kill me, releasing the light might kill us all…

WarWolf: Half breed

Ema fights to suppress her werewolf emotions and deny her warlock powers. It isn’t easy being a half-breed, but she is determined to slide through life unnoticed by either group. When the warlock leaders team up with humans to force paranormal registration, Ema believes she must choose between her two unwanted worlds. An unexpected companion shows her not all emotions are bad, and power has its benefits.


“Werewolves are real but the legends are wrong…”

It’s the secret Gillian’s father has tried to keep from her and the reason he’s so overprotective. But, he goes too far when he exiles Gillian to a house in the middle of nowhere. Her new landlord, Racer, is more like a cute jailer who has strict orders to keep her safely trapped.

Battle lines between independence and obligation are drawn as Gillian decides just how far she’s willing to go to win back her freedom. And Racer needs to decide what he’s willing to endure to keep her close.

Excerpt & Character Interview - Moved

Shadows and Light, a new release by Melissa Haag, is a compilation of three paranormal novellas. Moved, the third novella is the perfect finish. If you have a chance, you should check it out.

Gillian’s father goes too far when he exiles her to a house in the middle of nowhere. Gillian must decide just how far she’s willing to go to win back her freedom. And Racer needs to decide what he’s willing to endure to keep her close.

Cold water hit me in the face. I gasped and sputtered and sat up. Racer stood beside the bed, eyes bloodshot and furious. He’d turned the bedroom light on. The clock beside the bed read just after one.
“Is my power back on?” I asked, wiping my eyes as if it were nothing unusual to be awakened with water in the face.
His gritted teeth didn’t part when he growled his answer. “Yes.”
“Great.” I tossed back the damp covers. “Sorry about the wet bed.” I left as abruptly as I arrived. When I was on the stairs, I heard him yell.
“You didn’t call him!”
I sprinted up the rest of the stairs and closed myself into my apartment. Racer was ready for the next phase of my plan. I went to bed, openly laughing.

The author managed to interview the leading man, Racer, about the circumstances that led up to Gillian’s move. This interview is spoiler free.

Melissa: How did you get talked into renting out the upstairs apartment?
Racer: There wasn't much of a talk. Larry asked if anyone was living in the apartment upstairs. I said no. He told me someone would be within twenty-four hours.
Melissa: Why wasn't there a tenant?
Racer: I like living alone. Tenants are disruptive, needy, intrusive…
Melissa: What was your first impression of Gillian?
**Racer gives me a cocky grin**
Racer: Disruptive. Needy. Intrusive.
Melissa: What about now?
Racer: Close to perfect.
Melissa: Close?
Racer: She still thinks she can wander around on her own, and when I don’t give her the space she needs, she threatens to start acting like an inmate again.
Melissa: Some of her stunts were pretty funny.
Racer: You weren’t on the receiving end.

Shadows and Light, a new YA Paranormal release by Melissa Haag is a compilation of three novellas.
