The first novella in the Hearts of Amaranth series. More
A woman awakens in a hospital room with no memory of how she got there, except that she tried to kill herself. The staff is keeping her medicated--too medicated--at the behest of a mysterious man she is certain is no doctor.
Her name is Kait Selias, and she quickly learns why her suicide attempt failed: she cannot die. She is an immortal, and her appearance has sparked the interest of every powerful man and woman in the city of St. Louis.
With the help of a handsome doctor, Kait escapes the hospital and tries to piece together the mystery of her existence while evading the forces that seek to capture her. She discovers that her immortality is not the only thing that separates her from the rest of humanity. Her voice possesses the powerful ability to compel others to do her will, and her enhanced senses threaten to overwhelm her with desire.
Who is Kait Selias? More important, what is she? In the first installment of the Hearts of Amaranth series, Kait struggles to understand her place in a world she cannot remember and she comes face to face with the Gospels, six shadowy and seductive figures who control the city of St. Louis. The Gospels may be the key to her identity, but they have plans of their own for Kait Selias.
