My Demon Volume 1 FREE
Sarah Smith doesn’t want to go to Noble Academy. She has grown up in its shadows and knows she doesn’t belong. Noble is the school for the children of the richest and the most influential families in the Western hemisphere. Her family is neither of those. Her father is a handyman, and her mother a cook. They work at Noble. Because they cannot afford to send her anywhere else, Sarah is admitted to this rarefied institution. She doesn’t expect to fit in or to have an especially good time, but then again, she doesn’t expect Damien West either.
The West Corporation funds Noble and the only son of this powerful family has enrolled. Damien West has been kicked out of three prep schools, while a fourth burned to the ground. He's smart, cruel, and unbalanced. And for some reason, he decides to sit beside Sarah Smith in every single class.

My Demon Volume 2
Quizzes, guards, homework, fights, basketball, switched pills, galas, kisses, assassins, secrets, lies. All part of the Noble Academy experience.
Sarah knew going to Noble Academy would be tough, but she didn’t expect it to be perilous. Still recovering for the attempt on her life, she tries to get back to normal, but at Noble, there is no normal. Between catching up with classes, she has to contend with Damien’s hot/cold mood swings. One moment he’s her best friend; the next, he’s completely ignoring her. He’s the most difficult boyfriend in the world, but he isn’t Sarah’s boyfriend. So why’s she stuck with all of the difficulties?
And it doesn’t help that Noah Nash has entered the mix. If she thought she had trouble with the richest boy in school, that’s nothing compared to the second richest. She knows Damien likes her. She’s not sure if Noah cares about her at all, as in if she were drowning, would he bother to throw her a rope? Actually, she suspects he’d be the one to push her into the water.
So what’s the poorest girl at a rich academy supposed to do with the two richest boys? Sarah’s not sure, but she’s open to suggestions. Well, she wants to punch Noah, but security wouldn’t like that. She’s not sure what to do about Damien. Maybe she’ll fix him pancakes.
