Narrowly escaping court martial for events beyond his control, Major Evan Coulter is approached with an interesting employment opportunity just when he needs it the most. But this job may be more than he bargained for when he’s introduced to a shadowy world filled with paranormal abilities and artifacts.
Tarnished Guardian is a short story prequel to the series, and introduces Major Evan Coulter, the leader of the Guardians, explaining how he came to be part of the team.
The thought of digging up an artifact that was handled by another human being from a distant period in history fascinates me. I love archaeology, as well as all things paranormal. Now take an ancient relic, add a paranormal power to it, and you have the heart of the Guardian series. The series chronicles the missions of a disgraced ex-Ranger leading a ragtag squad of misfits—each with their own unique paranormal gifts—as they search for ancient mystical artifacts. But these aren’t just any old relics. In some cases, these pieces have the potential to change or destroy life as we know it, especially when in the wrong hands.
After the sickness known as the Doom destroyed civilization, magick has become commonplace, and Fallon Swift has spent her young years learning its ways. Fallon cannot live in peace until she frees those who have been preyed upon by the government or the fanatical Purity Warriors, endlessly hunted or locked up in laboratories, brutalized for years on end. She is determined to save even those who have been complicit with this evil out of fear or weakness—if, indeed, they can be saved.
Strengthened by the bond she shares with her fellow warrior, Duncan, Fallon has already succeeded in rescuing countless shifters and elves and ordinary humans. Now she must help them heal—and rediscover the light and faith within themselves. For although from the time of her birth, she has been The One, she is still only one. And as she faces down an old nemesis, sets her sights on the enemy’s stronghold, and pursues her destiny—to finally restore the mystical shield that once protected them all—she will need an army behind her...
Immortal Reckoning is a short story prequel to the Immortal Prophecy Series, taking place in 1912, where we get a bit of back story for the Chosen One, Isadora Winthrope before she meets her warrior...and we learn how dangerous her plight really is…
At 200 years old, Isadora Winthrop is an infant in the Immortal world, so what turn of events has put a target on her back? For a second time in two centuries, an ancient evil is stalking her, a mighty Immortal bent on destroying her to gain his own ascension. She was lucky in her first clash with Darius, High Priest of Avalon, but this time around she may not survive. She's not strong enough to best him in a face-to-face battle, that's certain. She needs help...and right now. To that end, she’s made a pact with a shadowy group known as Sentinels, but will they be able to protect her, or will they lead this ancient evil right to her doorstep?
I love a good romance and all things paranormal, so this Immortal Prophecy series is very near to my heart. The story is a paranormal romance with a slightly different take on the Arthurian legends and mythology. In this story, Merlin and Morgan le Fey weren’t witches or sorcerers, but powerful Elemental Immortals, able to manipulate the elements at will. These stories revolve around a prophecy (really, what good paranormal tale involving Ancients wouldn’t have one?) and a young Immortal’s fate as the Chosen One. Paired with her preordained warrior, they are destined by prophecy to defeat an evil Immortal bent on gaining ultimate power and upsetting the balance of the Universe. The story of a female Highlander meeting Aragorn from Lord Of The Rings in a contemporary world, the series is a love story wrapped in a grand and dangerous journey.

Born with a scarlet mote in her left eye, Phédre nó Delaunay is sold into indentured servitude as a child. When her bond is purchased by an enigmatic nobleman, she is trained in history, theology, politics, foreign languages, the arts of pleasure. And above all, the ability to observe, remember, and analyze. Exquisite courtesan, talented spy... and unlikely heroine. But when Phédre stumbles upon a plot that threatens her homeland, Terre d'Ange, she has no choice.
Betrayed into captivity in the barbarous northland of Skaldia and accompanied only by a disdainful young warrior-priest, Phédre makes a harrowing escape and an even more harrowing journey to return to her people and deliver a warning of the impending invasion. And that proves only the first step in a quest that will take her to the edge of despair and beyond.
Phédre nó Delaunay is the woman who holds the keys to her realm's deadly secrets, and whose courage will decide the very future of her world.

It is a novel of grandeur, luxuriance, sacrifice, betrayal, and deeply laid conspiracies. A world of cunning poets, deadly courtiers, deposed rulers and a besieged Queen, a warrior-priest, the Prince of Travelers, barbarian warlords, heroic traitors, and a truly Machiavellian villainess... all seen through the unflinching eyes of an unforgettable heroine.

The land of Terre d'Ange is a place of unsurpassed beauty and grace. It is said that the angels found the land and saw it was good, and the ensuing race that rose from the seed of angels and men live by one simple rule: Love as thou wilt.
Phèdre nó Delaunay is a young woman who was born with a scarlet mote in her left eye and sold into indentured servitude as a child. Her bond was purchased by Anafiel Delaunay, a nobleman with a very special mission--and the first to recognize her for who and what she is: one pricked by Kushiel's Dart, chosen to forever experience pain and pleasure as one.
Phèdre has trained in the courtly arts and the talents of the bedchamber, but, above all, the ability to observe, remember, and analyze. Having stumbled upon a plot that threatened the very foundations of her homeland, she gave up almost everything she held dear to save it. She survived, and lived to have others tell her story, and if they embellished the tale with fabric of mythical splendor, they weren't far off the mark.
The hands of the gods weigh heavily upon Phèdre's brow, and they are not yet done with their charge--for while the young queen who sits upon the throne is well loved by the people, there are those who believe that other heads should wear the crown. And those who escaped the wrath of the mighty are not yet done with their schemes for power and revenge. To protect and serve, Phèdre will once again leave her beloved homeland.
From the sun-drenched villas of La Serenissima to the wilds of old Hellas, from a prison designed to drive the very gods mad to an island of immutable joy. Phèdre will meet old friends and new enemies and discover a plot so dreadful as to make the earth tremble, masterminded by the one person she cannot turn away from.
