What if your whole life was a lie?

Alexis Ferguson wasn't blessed with the perfect body, but the ambitious over-achiever has used her book smarts to get her where she is today. It's too bad that everything she knows is wrong. 

After meeting a gorgeous stranger on a blind date, Alexis feels like she's known him her entire life. Suddenly, dark long-forgotten memories swirl in her mind. She realizes she's powerful, stunningly beautiful, and marked for death. 

As she faces the one who ordered her execution years ago, Alexis must learn her strange new powers and trust in unlikely allies to keep herself alive. 

Deception is the first installment in the Transformed Series, a young adult paranormal series that features gripping supernatural drama, surprising twists, dynamic characters, page-turning suspense, heart-pounding action, and angsty teen romance.

  • Don't tell...

    By John Frosted
    Obviously the best thing to do in any new situation is to remain uninformed. I'm getting tired of authors who use this gimmick to build their plot, add suspense, and pad out their stories way beyond what is reasonable. Mysteries are one thing, but this is simply the characters finding one excuse after another not to tell each other necessary data, or not demanding it from the other. Nine more books of this.. oh joy
  • Amazing

    By Honeymoosh
    What an amazing series. Just finished book 12 and it was wonderful. The whole series was good. Never has an author taken me on such a long emotional journey as this one. Please read this book and the entire series. It's truly magical.
  • Transformed series

    By lizzil15
    Felt that the storyline was good, but the writing was horrible. Felt zero emotions between characters, writing was so literal and rote, very repetitive. Read second book, same. Won't be finishing series.
  • Cheesy AF

    By Boopydoop33
    Not well written. Tons of errors. Incredibly cheesy. You'll see what I mean. I'm not impressed. Especially since it's supposedly written by a best selling author.
  • Terrible

    By Meowbitchgetoutdaway
    Poorly written. Interesting idea and concept but the quality is bad.
  • Deception

    By Stacey1231
    A must read for paranormal romance readers. I'm falling in love with this series too. Stacy writes so well that you feel like you know the characters in a personal way.
  • Great Story

    By Keithbornmann
    I thoroughly enjoyed this book. This was actually the second time I've read it. I'll probably read it again later.
  • Distracting in a bad way

    By Mythicnight
    This book has a very interesting, if fairly predictable, plot line. The ideas and plot were very interesting and unique outside of that predictability, which is what kept me reading. However, the editing of this story is just terrible. I definitely won't be reading any further books in this series as it's just too hard to really get immersed in the unique story, no matter how badly I wanted to. This book had many spelling and grammatical errors throughout the book, but what was most painful and distracting was the fact that nothing was really fleshed out in the story itself. The story jumped from one major scene to another without much detail, let alone any real transition, which left me distracted while wondering how and why the story had suddenly gotten to where it was. It had little to no detail, and was mostly structured with short sentences that made everything seem abrupt and blunt. I wanted more information, more fluidity, and both were severely lacking on top of the constant mistakes.
  • Love it

    By wavealee
    She has done it! I love it and I only read this one but I'm ready to buy the whole series like now. It is a long series but I like the fact that it's not only three or four books and that's it. I want to grow with the characters. Great book
