Even as a little girl, Selene had always been adventurous, climbing trees and finding new adventures in every nook and cranny. She was never accepted by either gender—all children thought she was too outspoken and strange. Little did she know how different she truly was until an encounter with a mysterious stranger changes her life forever. Readers can witness the intriguing events unfold in Valley of Dust, a novel by Karoleen Vry Brucks.

Growing up, Selene was too different and never really fit anywhere. Now 22, she literally lived the life of a starving artist, taking up art at Penland School of Crafts and bartending at night to pay the bills. Only her dreams of a gorgeous mystery man gave her comfort and the strength to go forward. While out jogging at night, Selene is attacked then rescued by a man with silver hair.

From the moment that Lucian saw Selene, he knew she was special and that she was his destiny. He sent his brother, Anton, out to watch over her and protect her while she is still unaware of her true nature. Lucian, however, didn’t foresee that Anton and Selene would be mutually attracted to each other. Will Selene come between the two brothers? How will she handle the truth about what she is and the power that courses through her veins? Readers can unravel the exciting answers as they explore the Valley of Dust.
