Title: COME ALIVE (EIT 7)
Author: Karina Halle
Release date: June 20, 2013
Age Group: Mature NA/Adult
Genre: Romantic Suspense/Horror
It’s one thing to bring the woman you love back into your life. It’s another to try and keep her there. For Dex Foray, con¬vinc¬ing Perry Palomino to open her¬self to their bur¬geon¬ing rela¬tion¬ship has been more chal¬leng¬ing than hunt¬ing ghosts, bat¬tling demons and stalk¬ing Sasquatch com¬bined. Add in the fact that the only way they can keep their Exper¬i¬ment in Ter¬ror show run-ning is to take on a third part¬ner in the form of the mys¬te¬ri¬ous Max¬imus Jacobs — all while inves¬ti¬gat¬ing a sin¬is¬ter voodoo sect in New Orleans — and you’ve got the per¬fect South¬ern storm and a recipe for dis¬as¬ter. Luck¬ily, Dex has never been one to back down, even when his life –and heart — are on the line.
Come Alive is told from Dex’s POV.
She looked shy. “You didn’t, I was just shocked. I mean, I though I saw she-beast earlier and I just assumed I was being paranoid…I didn’t know I was your girlfriend.”
I looked up, wondering if we needed to continue the conversation outside, but upon meeting my eyes, everyone else at the table started chatting loudly with each other on cue.
I turned back to Perry. “Well, you’re more than a girlfriend. Girlfriend is such a juvenile term, and as juvenile as I am, that’s not the way I feel about you. You’re a partner, a lover, a friend, and so much more than that. Sorry if I put you on the spot.”
“No,” she said, smiling. I wanted to kiss her nose. “It’s okay. I’m glad you did. I’m sorry I’m being such a weirdo about all of this. It’s just hard to believe how far we’ve come, you know? My brain is just catching up now.”
“So you’re okay with me being your boyfriend? I’ll treat you real nice. We can go steady and you can wear my letterman jacket.”
“Ooooh, maybe,” she said playfully. “What letter is on it?”
“No letter, just a picture of a cock.”
She snorted. “Of course there is.”
“It’s a rooster, you pervert.”
She eyed me dryly. “Oh yeah? Why a rooster?”
“It symbolizes my cock. Can’t love me without loving cock.”

The daughter of a Norwegian Viking and a Finnish Moomin, Karina Halle grew up in Vancouver, Canada with trolls and eternal darkness on the brain. This soon turned into a love of all things that go bump in the night and a rather sadistic appreciation for freaking people out. Like many of the flawed characters she writes, Karina never knew where to find herself and has dabbled in acting, make-up artistry, film production, screenwriting, photography, travel writing and music journalism. She eventually found herself in the pages of the very novels she wrote (if only she had looked there to begin with).
Karina holds a screenwriting degree from Vancouver Film School and a Bachelor of Journalism from TRU. Her travel writing, music reviews/interviews and photography have appeared in publications such as Consequence of Sound, Mxdwn and GoNomad Travel Guides. She currently lives on an island on the coast of British Columbia where she’s preparing for the zombie apocalypse with her fiance and rescue pup.
