Swann Santiago, assistant to Xxieda Rolla, sister to Ravens and newly minted witch can’t understand why a man as sexy as Lance Whitehall wants to help her get her powers in check, let alone hangout with her on a regular basis. A professional at keeping walls up around herself, she knows the short end of the stick when it comes to having a normal life. Born with a lack of pigment, she is the negative of her twin, a fact that has caused her much distress, and kept the opposite sex at bay.

Ivy Granger Book 0.5.

In this prequel to the Ivy Granger series, Ivy and Jinx must investigate the house of a client who is certain it is haunted. Beginning in the yard with Hunger Grass, they enter the woman's home. This short story gives an idea of the relationship between the Ivy and Jinx. It is somewhat lacking in backstory, but the length doesn't really allow for more. I highly recommend reading this in the order it was published or at least after the first book, just to understand the world a bit better.
