I like fast cars, beautiful women and great sex.

I hate drugs. I can’t stand the idiots who take them and I loathe the bastards who supply them. Drugs cost me my whole world.

I wear many faces; right now I’m Doctor Lucas Callaghan and I’ll be him until I get my revenge.

My real name will be the last words to ever pass their lips.

I hate my name, Aoife Brennan, as soon as people hear it they treat me differently because of my father.

Medical school isn’t my dream, it’s his. But, it’s the least I owe him after everything I’ve done. I’m trying to be a good girl, but even good girls make mistakes.

He’s lying about who he is, she’s kidding herself about who she can be. They’re polar opposites with one very big secret in common.

EXCERPT:

I follow him to the front door. We both stand in the hall for longer than necessary. I don’t offer to let him out, even though I know I should. But I want him to kiss me again. I want so much more than I know I can have.

He reaches for the doorknob. He’s going to let himself out. God, I don’t want him to go. Not like this.

‘I’m sorry,’ I say, finally breaking the silence.

‘For what?’

‘I shouldn’t have kissed you.’

‘And I shouldn’t have kissed you back.’

He’s smiling. And for the first time since we met, the cloud of sadness that usually rests in the corner of his eyes is absent.

‘Are we okay, then?’ I stutter.

‘You mean am I going to tell anyone about this?’

‘Well, yeah?’

‘No, Aoife. No, I’m not. I’m as much to blame as you are. Probably more so because I should know better.’

‘I’m not a child, Lucas. I do understand the word no.’

He looks at me as if he wants to rip my clothes off. I kind of wish he would. I take a deep breath.

‘If you kissed me again, I wouldn’t say no this time either,’ I say.

My teeth clamp against my bottom lip. I can’t believe I said that out loud. But all I can think about is how good his lips felt on mine and how much I want to feel them again. Kiss me, Lucas. Kiss me.

As if he reads my mind, Lucas’ hands grip my waist. One hand just above each hip, cementing me to the spot. His eyes focus on mine with such intensity, it burns.

‘You should say no, Aoife. You should run a mile from me.’

‘Why? Because you loved someone and losing them has fucked with your head?’

His eyes narrow, and his grip on my waist tightens almost to the point of hurting. I know it’s a flash of temper. This man is the nearest thing to a stranger to me. He could lose it completely and really hurt me, but I know he won’t. I trust him as I’ve never really trusted anyone before.

‘No. Because you don’t know me. You don’t know what I’m capable of.’

‘Then show me.’

‘Be careful what you wish for.’

‘I’ve already seen what you’re capable of. I’ve seen how much you care about people, but you try to hide that under a layer of fancy talk and cocky attitude.’

He forces me backwards, his hands still on my waist. I make a weird noise that I haven’t heard before as my back collides with the wall behind me, slapping the air out of my chest.

‘Don’t go there, Doctor Brennan. You’re not a psychology student.’

‘No. I’m just the girl you kissed. The girl who is still standing in front of you ten minutes later and waiting for you to do it again.’

Praise for Bleizgeist

‘Filled with atmosphere and chills – a book of beautiful prose and sweeping scope that will have you reading well into the night and beyond.’

-Joel Cornah, Sci-Fi & Fantasy Network

‘A good novella has to be complete in itself but also make you want to read more, and Bleizgeist succeeds at both. It’s a beautifully written tale that intertwines darkness and love to devastating effect, concealing and revealing its secrets with a skilful hand. Vivid sensory details bring the whole to life – you can almost taste the cold forest air and hear the cry of the wolves – but it’s the emotion at the heart of this magical story that continues to resonate long after you reach the final page.’

-A.F.E. Smith, Darkhaven (Harper Voyager)

‘Bleizgeist is the dark, haunting tale of Marishka’s search for acceptance in a harsh world that reveres and yet shuns her. Butler’s masterful storytelling is merciless. I cried for Marishka more than once. Bleizgeist is an homage to the dark fairytales of old, with a bold and modern approach that makes it very special.’

-Sammy H.K. Smith, Grimbold Books
