She is the immortal Greek goddess Persephone, living in a Malibu beach house in the twenty-first century. And no matter how much therapy she undergoes, nothing can ease her pain after the recent murder of her husband.
Until she meets Mr. Gabriel Cartwright, a prim and proper young East Coast realtor who’s hired to arrange transfer of her things to her new home in Toronto. Cora likes him. He’s tall, dark and yummy.
But Gabe holds a secret. He has Napean nymph blood, an ancestry that Imada, a despicable secret society of gods and goddesses, has been hunting for centuries. Cora knows this. That’s why she hired him. She wants to be close to him. She wants to care for him. But Imada cares about him too—they want him dead.
Cora can heal wounds and move clouds, but she can't bring back her husband. Can her attraction to this new guy help her forget her loss? She has her ancient brutish lover Hades, the God of the Underworld, on her side. And Gabe has such a kind, sweet heart and is so handsome. Yeah, she’ll keep her man or tear Imada apart trying.

Deep in Aelfheim country, Ella, Finn and Elsen are making their escape from the underground military base, with the aid of the dragon Snowstorm. Their first destination is a Boreal supply station, and their immediate goal is survival. Both their escape and survival might prove tricky, though, given that Queen Adramar has set all her forces in pursuit — the Boreal dragon rider unit, all her spies as well as the machines under her control.
But even if Ella and the two elves managed to shake off their pursuers, Aelfheim isn't a world to be taken lightly. As she soon discovers, Finn's tales didn't quite do justice to the savage animals, crazy rogue machines, or the treacherous climate conditions of this frozen world.
If the snowstorms and deadly winds don't get them, if the sleeping towers don't rise from the snow and shoot them down, if the rock wolves and ice cats don't have them for dinner… then there's hope for another day.

This is the story of Candice Harlow, a brilliant young scientist arranged by Arkite’s supreme ruler, Elise Jackson, to lead the Savant project. A.I. is forbidden to experiment with human genes, so it enlists researchers—Savants. Savants work to create a human being from scratch to serve as a blueprint for immortality.

By night, she’s whisked off to fancy restaurants and nightclubs.
The project’s genesis is not unlike Frankenstein’s creature. Though not hideous, the creation is shunned by the all-female society. Candy shelters and cares for the creation, but not before she’s unfairly betrayed and accused of the worst possible crime.
