“Dragons, Magic and Adventure...who could ask for more???” — Sara F
I’m a witch. Not a good one or a bad one, although according to the snooty wizards, I’m a stain upon their robes.
But who cares what those snobs say?
I’ve got a job to do; stop demons from infiltrating Earth and killing all the witches. Concentrating on my job is hard, though.
First, the guy who’s decided he’s going to help me is hotter than Arizona in the summer. Like seriously, melt-my-panties-into-ash sexy.
Second, demons are targeting witches such as me because, apparently, we’re a tasty snack.
Finally, the kitten I adopted has gone missing, and if I’m not mistaken, a demon stole it.
If there’s one thing you should never do is mess with a witch’s pussy. I don’t care who I have to fight to get my furball back! And if I fall in love along the way…then it will at least get my mother off my back.

“When it comes to urban fantasy stories, Dianna Love is a master.” ~~A. Richards, Always Reviewing
“Wow. This series just got more intense, and as you read, you find there is more connecting history. Amazing arc.” M. Fairbanks on Dragon King Of Treoir
“Dianna Love did not disappoint!! The battle for Treoir continues with new enemies, new twists, and new romances.” D. A Houser on Dragon King Of Treoir
“This is the best series I have ever read past a 3 book series. It is like a tv series, only better.” B. A. Mealer on Dragon King Of Treoir
To top it all off, I have these weird and crazy daydreams that come and go whenever they want, leaving me disoriented. They’ve gotten me into trouble more than I like to admit. Then come to find out the Elders want to kill me or use me for some unforeseen reason.
So, here I am on the run just to survive. With my best friend Kira, my mom, and a bunch of dragon shifters I barely know. Oh, and the crush of my life cycle, Kiernan. I’m really missing my old boring life cycle right about now. If I can ever get back to it, I’m not taking it for granted again.
Will the Black Ruins Forest hold the answers we are all seeking, or will it just make things worse? There’s only one way to find out and pray to the source we all survive long enough to get those answers.
Fate really hates me! She twisted my lifecycle apart and spit me out. I will never be the same person again. That's what scares me the most.
Friend or lover. Life or death…
Supernatural cop Ari Calin arrives at the hostile Toronto vampire court with an ultimatum from the Riverdale vampires: Sebastian, Toronto’s vampire prince, must stop his unprovoked attacks—or else. Ari wasn’t expecting a fight—the “or else” was typical vampire grandstanding. But even with vampire Andreas De Luca by her side for a show of strength, things get ugly fast. Toronto’s vampire world is in crisis, and surrounded by enemies, Ari and Andreas find themselves under attack.
That’s when Ari gets the call from the Magic Council ordering her home. Steffan, a good friend and leader of Riverdale's werewolves, has gone missing during top secret negotiations with the US government, and is believed to have been kidnapped—or killed.
Andreas can't abandon the Toronto vampires, and Ari can’t leave him to face impossible odds alone. But neither can she disobey her orders from the Council, or leave her friend Steffan to be tortured and killed. Ari's loyalties pull her in two directions—the closest thing to love she’s ever known on one side, and friendship and duty on the other. If she can stay alive long enough for the choice to matter…

Not believing won't make the ghosts go away.
New Orleans' homicide cop Maggie York is at the top of her game until a sniper's bullet changes everything. She flatlines, comes back. But not quite the same. She sees and hears things...ghostly things. And she blurts out enough to her doctors to end up on medical leave with a diagnosis of PTSD. If only.
Six months later, the voices have faded and the ghostly sightings are less frequent. The department still won't let Maggie return to the job. Oh, she's quit talking about ghosts, except to a few friends and the loony relatives who believe she's a witch, but Maggie doubts herself. Since inactivity is making it worse, she sets out to track down her shooter, only things get complicated...a ghostly witness wants his own murder solved, and sexy homicide cop, Josh Brandt—who just happens to be her replacement—wants her to butt out of his case.
After Josh catches her at the murder scene of a key witness, he wonders how the attractive redhead is staying one step ahead of him and how deeply her involvement goes. She doesn't appear as unstable as he's been told, but she's hiding something. He recognizes the signs...because he has secrets of his own. Unraveling her case soon draws them down twisted but intersecting paths.
And failure may cost Maggie her life.
