The Uninvited by J.A. Templeton
(The MacKinnon Legacy #1)
Publication date: March 17th 2015
Genres: New Adult, Paranormal Romance
For readers who loved the international best-selling YA paranormal romance series, The MacKinnon Curse, here is a new spin-off series!
Madison Sinclair has a secret. She can see, hear and feel the dead.
At seventeen, Madison travels to Edinburgh to study and discovers that university is not the only adventure to be found there. The historic Scots city is a hotbed of paranormal activity and Madison’s talents and empathy are tested when she meets the spirit of a missing teen, Jaime.
Madison befriends Shane, a fellow student and very human charmer from her home town, who also knows a thing or two about ghosts and their ways.
Madison’s spirit friend, Jaime, has a flesh-and-blood brother. Haven is a sexy, tattooed bad boy with a dangerous reputation, but is drawn to Madison because of the enticing truth she could give him about his little sister.
Shane and Haven help Madison use her gifts to uncover the secrets surrounding Jaime’s disappearance, which puts Madison in danger from more than wayward spirits. The psychopath that killed Jaime now has Madison in his cross-hairs, and he has no intention of letting her reveal the truth.
THE UNINVITED is book one in The MacKinnon Legacy series and is intended for readers over 17+ due to language, sexual situations, and violence.
I was surprised to see Shane come out of nowhere. He pushed his way through the small group that had formed in the hallway and made it to my side, standing a shoulder width in front of me, as though to defend me. “There you are.” He put his arm around my waist, pulled me close, and kissed me.
Shane’s lips were soft, his mouth open slightly, and I nearly reared back when I felt tongue, but he held me firmly to him. His hands locked on my hips.
And then I thought to myself, why the hell not?
The next thing I knew my arms were sliding around his neck and I was leaning into him, kissing him back for all I was worth and enjoying every second of my first real kiss.
Q&A with J. A. Templeton
Why a spin-off series? The MacKinnon Curse series is the series I’m most proud of, as well as a reader favorite. When the emails continued to come in asking if I was going to continue the series, I thought why not write a spin-off? When I wondered where to start, the character of Maddy just kind of leapt off the page for me. She’s one of those tortured souls that I love to write about, and plus, she’s psychic, so she was a perfect fit for this world.
Your books are considered horror and romance. How do you classify them? First and foremost, I look at my books as romances because the stories are about a girl on a journey, and that journey always includes finding love. I do love writing the scary bits though.
So…you’re also a psychic medium? What does that mean exactly? Yes, I am. A psychic medium is someone who can communicate with those who have passed away. Like the character of Maddy (and Riley from The MacKinnon Curse series), I see, hear, and feel Spirits.
What’s next? I’ll finish books two and three in The MacKinnon Legacy, and then I’m writing the third book in the Badboy Rockers series before I finish up my Otherworld series.
