The Wicked Awakened
by Samantha Jacobey,
Genre: Paranormal Romantic Thriller
Release Date: October 13th, 2015
Morcant and Blake Korrigan own a little shop of horrors, where witches congregate and people ending up dead isn’t rare. When Karen Hiltzman joins their coven, she has no idea what she’s getting into. Drawn in, the group convinces her to recruit her best friend, Sarah Matthews, after discovering that she bears a very special birthmark; one that indicates she’s the girl they’ve been waiting for.
Eager to reincarnate a witch put to death by an angry mob five hundred years prior, Morcant unleashes a spell; a dark and sinister curse. His ritual transforms Sarah’s body and will bring the dreaded Brenna back to life when it’s completed. Blake wants to stop him; but will he be strong enough to defeat his elder sibling, and if he does… will he be able to let her go when it’s done?

Sarah felt foolish as soon as she stepped onto the bus, with the eyes of the other passengers upon her; ‘I look like a hooker,’ she lamented. Not daring to sit down in the short skirt, lest she give anyone a peep show, she stood and held onto the bar that ran down the center aisle.
‘Of course, I can’t go home,’ her thoughts continue to turn. ‘I’ll go to the bar and drink a coke. I can sit in a back corner and hide for a couple of hours.’ She adjusted her grip nervously, knowing it was a bad plan; ‘that’s the rule… we never go out alone.’ It was dangerous to say the least, and images of all the horrible ends she could come to haunted her.
Shaking off her ominous foreboding, she climbed down the steps of the transport and listened to the click of her heels as she strutted down the walk. Several of the men she passed turned to watch her sway, and a devilish grin curled her lips; ‘come on, you like being bad.’ Arriving at her chosen spot, she sauntered inside.
The club itself dimly lit, the music thumped loudly and vibrated her organs as soon as she entered. Moving through the crowd, she made her way to the bar, where she realized the doorman had allowed her to pass unscathed. Having thought she would have a coke, she heard herself mutter the word rum along with it, and a few minutes later, she hovered next to a tall table at the side of the dance floor, sipping the liquid through a tiny straw.
About the time her drink needed to be refreshed, one of the men who had been watching her sidled up and placed one before her without saying a word. Her devious streak renewed, she didn’t bother with the sipping, and hoisted the glass to guzzle about half of it, before lowering it to give him a grin.
“You got a name?” she asked coyly.
“I’m not really into names,” he sneered, looking at the others who were eyeing his target. Leaning closer so he could peer down her cleavage, he noticed the silver amulet nestled there. “You looking for a friend tonight?”
“Maybe,” she swirled her icy beverage, then finished it off. “Are you a friend?” she cut her eyes up at him and blinked a few times.
“Sure,” he took her hand, rubbing it roughly between his, “You in the mood to dance, or find us some place outta the way?”
Giggling loudly, Sarah leaned forward, the alcohol clouding her thoughts. When her face was within range, he met her, eagerly exploring the inside of her mouth with his tongue. Deciding she needed another, he pulled away, and waved at the waitress, who produced more drinks for them while Sarah began to wriggle around in time to the music.
“You don’t say much,” the girl screamed to be heard over the thump of the sound system.
“I didn’t come here to talk,” he replied, putting his hand on her hip and giving her a squeeze.
“What did you come here for?” she lay against him, placing her words next to his ear.
Grinning, he didn’t back down, “I’m gonna take you out back and fuck the hell out of you.”
Sarah burst into a loud laugh, “I’m not doing shit with you… without knowing your name first.”
“Alright,” he pulled her against him, pressing his hardness against her belly while his hand rode up the crack of her thinly covered rear end, “I’m Chase.”
“Chase,” she repeated, feeling the bulge of him, and sliding her hand around to right her skirt. “Stop that,” she said more softly, and he kissed her instead, then put his fingers back where they had been.
“Let’s go find some place a little more private,” he pulled her along.
“I don’t know if I’m ready for that,” she snickered again.
“Oh, you’re ready,” he guided her through the crowd.

Weird Facts About Witches:
As part of the infamous “swimming test,” accused witches were dragged to the nearest body of water, stripped to their undergarments, bound and then tossed in to see if they would sink or float. Since witches were believed to have spurned the sacrament of baptism, it was thought that the water would reject their body and prevent them from submerging. According to this logic, an innocent person would sink like a stone, but a witch would simply bob on the surface. The victim typically had a rope tied around their waist so they could be pulled from the water if they sank, but it wasn’t unusual for accidental drowning deaths to occur.
Now, let’s get to know Samantha a little more…
Anyone who knows me could tell you, I am a friendly kind of person, never met a stranger and take up conversations any where at any time. I work hard, and my mind never seems to shut down, as I wake up often in the middle of the night with ideas pouring out and demanding to be dealt with. Of course that means much of my books were written in the middle of the night.
I grew up and still live in the great state of Texas where everything is bigger, where we have warm weather and a central location. I love my state, my town, and my family, which includes my four sons, my significant other, and many friends as well.
I have thoroughly enjoyed writing the books that are currently available and hope you will enjoy reading them just as much. And of course, there will be many more stories to come.
