When King of the Texas Empire kidnaps Warren’s brother, Warren embarks into a still Wild West to save him. On his journey, he makes a discovery that changes his life forever—he and his brother are long-lost members of the Texas royal family and the King wants them both dead.
He gets help from an activist Texan named Lena, who’s itching to take on the King and happens to be a beautiful firecracker Warren can’t stay away from. Convincing her he’s not one of the bad guys becomes harder when a mysterious energy stirs in his body, turning his brain into a hive of emotions and memories—not all his own.
A legacy of violence is not all he inherited from the brutal Kings of Texas. The myth that the royal family possesses supernatural powers may not be myth at all.
Gone are the days when choosing a major was a big deal. Now Warren must save his brother and choose whether or not to be King, follow a King, or die before he can retire his fake ID.
Sharon Bayliss is a native of Austin, Texas and works her day job in the field of social work. When she’s not writing, she enjoys living in her “happily-ever-after” with her husband and two young sons. She can be found eating Tex-Mex on patios, wearing flip-flops, and playing in the mud (which she calls gardening). You can connect with Sharon on facebook and on her website.
How would America be different if the Alamo had ended with Texas declaring itself a separate nation under a new king? Tracing the lineage of Texas Royalty, imbued with bio-electric power, The Charge taps into the alternate history and develops an awesome contemporary sci-fi.
It is so refreshing to see an NA (New Adult, for ages 18-22) book not be a romance. Sharon Bayliss puts together a wild and fast ride as young adults get pulled into the political games of the highest political powers in the world. With genetic modification, counter-charge technology, and plenty of guns, the consequences are astounding. Impressive and believable characters in an overwhelming setting make for an awesome coming of age tale. I recommend it!
