Beatrice Walker thought she lived in a normal world—that is until she learned she’s a living hostel for an alien energy source, and apparently the answer to preventing extinction.

Bea has no memory of her last moments with her mother. The week they’d gone missing is a complete mystery. Suddenly moved back to her hometown with her father, Bea has rekindled her friendship with her two best friends—and seems to have caught the attention of an arrogant, yet gorgeous boy named Cash Kingston. But there’s more to Cash than his annoying attitude and good looks. Cash isn’t human, and he’s now in charge of protecting Bea from those who know what she keeps safe inside her: the energy source that once belonged to his murdered girlfriend.

Tensions mount as Bea learns her energy source must be paired with the one Cash holds to protect both their planets from an imminent threat. But what Bea doesn’t realize is there’s more to her than being human a host, that her feelings for Cash are not just a prophetic plan that will save their planets, and that the fate of everything lies in her choices.

 

Top 5 Favorite Scenes from THE CONNECTION and Why

1. When Cash and Bea meet for the first time by their lockers.

The why is easy. She’s immediately attracted to him and also super scared and he’s pissed. He realizes for the first time his dead girlfriends’ source is inside this human.

2. When Cash enters Robert’s home without knocking and is leaned up against the doorway.

I like the way he surprised everyone in this scene showing the two worlds starting to merge.

3. The jog scene between Cash and Bea.

It’s the first time we see them interact alone and so much happens. They get attacked, Bea shows strength for wanting to protect Cash even if he’s a pain, and there’s a death scene.

4. When Darla tells Grouper that Cash is Beatrice’s boyfriend.

I’m a big Darla fan so I love when she starts telling Grouper he has the situation mistaken when if fact it’s her that has the situation mistaken.

5. The end when Bea get’s her memory back.

I knew I was always going to bring Seraphina back for book 2 but I love that the story doesn’t tell you until the last line. Seraphina is the alpha and omega.


When author Dana Claire had several poems published as an elementary school student, she was hooked and writing became her passion. A shared dream of hers and her mother’s, she promised her dying mother that she would become a published author and that dream has been realized with The Connection.

Dana believes that a good story is made through strong character development; when readers become attached to the characters’ emotional state and are invested in their objectives. She believes that the beauty of reading is that one can live a hundred lives within the stories of books. Her own stories come to her in her dreams, and she wakes up with book ideas.

Dana’s family is very supportive of her writing and the creativity and sentiment driving it. Enjoying bicoastal living between Los Angeles and New York, Dana says she “lives the best romance in the world being married to the most amazing man she could ever ask for.” The Connection was her debut YA novel, the first volume in the Blood-Light trilogy. The Reclaimed Kingdom is her second novel.
