A STANDALONE BONNIE BENNETT BOOK IN THE VAMPIRE DIARIES / THE ORIGINALS UNIVERSE.

Bourbon, jazz, and streets soaked in magic. New Orleans is an infamous supernatural playground, and the perfect place for a witch to feel right at home.

When Bonnie Bennett travels to The Big Easy for some much needed rest and relaxation, she unexpectedly encounters a few familiar faces. Despite their violent history and her resulting efforts to steer clear of Mikaelson family drama, she soon finds herself agreeing to help Klaus when his brother Elijah goes missing. Assuming they could get a little aid from the local covens, they quickly realize the eldest original vampire isn’t the only mysterious disappearance in the Crescent City.

The clock is ticking. With the help of her unlikely ally and a handful of new friends from the French quarter, Bonnie must face off with a dark force fueled by vengeance and hell bent on wiping out every New Orleans witch in existence.

*Originally published as part of the Bennett Witch Chronicles series in the Amazon Vampire Diaries Kindle Worlds. With the dissolution of Amazon’s Kindle Worlds program, I’m making the story available on Wattpad for free.

When Caroline Forbes awoke this morning, in modern-day Mystic Falls, she had no clue that an ancient sorceress would lay claim to her twin girls. With the help of Bonnie, of the powerful Bennett witch order, they discover the only way to sever the sorceresses’ hold is to travel back in time.

With no other choice, Caroline travels to nineteenth-century Mystic Falls – an era where vampires are savagely hunted and witches must hide.

She must deny her feelings in order to ventures into perilous terrain, not only to save her daughters but to survive.

While all of Caroline Forbes’s friends have moved on with their lives, she has remained frozen in her seventeen-year old body. No longer free to roam around Mystic Falls because of her unchanging looks, she starts to feel bound by her thoughts and emotions.

All through the years, she tried not to think of Stefan Salvatore and the future she could have had with him. A chance confrontation with a gang of teens in the cemetery changes that.

A boy with Stefan’s face emerges from the shadows. Caroline knows it is not really him but can’t stop her heart from feeling every emotion he brought out within her. To make matters worse, he brought an old foe with him.

Will Caroline finally get her happily ever after or will fate snatch it away yet again?

Read the story that takes place twenty years after the events of the hit TV series finale of The Vampire Diaries.

Hell hath no fury like a shadow from the underworld.

Caroline Forbes prides herself on being the quirky vampire always prepared with a plan. Now that she’s running the Salvatore Boarding School for the Young & Gifted, she’s starting to think she might be in over her head. Still grieving the loss of her husband Stefan, Caroline is slowly slipping into the darkness hidden behind her radiant smile. Against her better judgement, she seeks comfort in all the wrong places, in all the wrong people—one in particular.

Niklaus Mikaelson, the original vampire-werewolf hybrid and notorious bad boy doesn’t hesitate to answer Caroline’s cry for help. Old feelings are stirred and the temptation is impossible to ignore. Klaus and Caroline give in, losing themselves in a heated romance that could burn a thousand forests.

Enraptured by their world of passion, they ignore everyone around them. The neglect leads Caroline’s twin girls to do the unthinkable—they perform a spell, unleashing the shadows from the underworld. These shadows are malevolent, angry, and seeking revenge, leaving the townspeople in grave danger.

Can Caroline and Klaus fall back down to reality in time to save Mystic Falls from the shadows? Or will their whirlwind romance cost them everything?

 When the Salvatore Boarding School for the Young and Gifted received an urgent message from Siberia, I jumped at the chance to go check it out. Sure I was going to miss my twin daughters with every fiber of my being but I was dying, no pun intended, to get out of Mystic Falls. Even if it was only for a surveillance mission. A romantic interlude was the last thing on my mind when I said goodbye to my family but that’s exactly what I found.

Had I known Klaus Mikaelson was going to be in Russia, I never would have offered to go investigate the string of mysterious deaths. But leave it to me, Caroline Forbes, to find the silver lining.  Maybe having an Original vampire on my side could help me solve the mystery and return home that much faster. The only thing standing in my way is my attraction to a man I should never have been attracted to in the first place.

 

About DJ Shaw

Born and raised in Albuquerque, New Mexico in 1977, DJ Shaw was 17 before she was able to see most of the United States. When she was 17, she decided to join the fair, traveling with them to Texas, Oklahoma, and Louisiana. Once the fair arrived in Lake Charles, DJ had decided it was time to go home, that she had had enough of traveling with the fair. She much rather preferred to sit around writing, or even telling, the lives of the people who lived in her head. She had been good at story-telling from the time she was about ten, when she scared herself so bad with her story of the Boogey-man that she couldn’t move off her bed. Her siblings would come to her for their scare fix, because they knew she could come up with something on the spot.

Having found what she loved to do at an early age, she continued to write down her stories and any poetry that came into her head. She had stacks upon stacks of notebooks filled with her work. Her love of horror movies made her stories that much more chilling.

When she’s not writing, she’s listening to music, supporting her favorite adopted brother and his band “Traveler in Pain”, playing with her five children, spending time with her husband of seven years or watching horror movies in the middle of the night just for the scare factor.

Julie Plec Accidentally Lets Huge #TheOriginals / #VampireDiaries #Spoiler Slip

In case it wasn’t obvious from the title of this post…

Article Compliments of TV Guide

[Spoilers for The Originals follow. Read at your own risk!]

Sometimes you have to dig deep for spoilers on your favorite show, but sometimes they’re accidentally dropped right in your lap, which was the case today for fans of The Originals.

While talking about the end of The Vampire Diaries with Entertainment Weekly at the ATX Television Festival, Julie Plec let it slip that Hope Mikaelson (Summer Fontana) might be Mystic Falls-bound. “Alaric (Matt Davis) and Caroline (Candice King) are running the Salvatore School for the Young and Gifted where Hope Mikael– sh** never mind. Keep watching…”

It’s no surprise that Hope might end up at the Salvatore magic school, given that The Originalshas made a point multiple times this season that Hope is lonely without other children around and doesn’t have a great handle on her powers yet. Alaric pretty much gave her an engraved invitation to become a student during his crossover earlier this year.
