"Dark and delicious."—Kerrelyn Sparks, New York Times bestselling author

Her voice haunts his thoughts; her whispers fill his days
But when he discovers the woman of his dreams is real
He'll race the clock to save her before she's lost to him forever

Scarred by lightning, burdened with a power that gives him no peace, criminal investigator Xander Stone struggles to maintain his sanity against the voice that haunts him day and night—the voice of a woman begging him to save her.

Isleen Walker has long since given up hope of escape from the nightmare of captivity and torture that is draining her life, her mind, and her soul. Except...there is the man in her feverish dreams, a strangely beautiful man who beckons her to freedom. And when he comes, if he comes, it will take all their combined fury and faith to overcome a madman bent on fulfilling a deadly prophecy.

SAVE BIG on this collection of THREE steamy standalone shifter romances!

Box Set Includes: Bite This, Break This & Bear This!


Time is running out. The powerful spell that kept these shifters’ animals in check will soon be gone, exposing them to life-threatening danger, as well as a mating instinct so powerful that only the most insatiable partner can keep up.


If you like gorgeous men, strong women, shifters, magic, mysteries, and sex, then you will LOVE the 300 Moons series of steamy standalones, set in the world of Tarker's Hollow.


These books can be read in any order!


Bite This:

Darcy Harkness is definitely not interested in the advances of a professional magician, even if he's tall, dark and handsome. Even if he seems to show up every time the you-know-what hits the fan. Even if he turns the independent wolf shifter into a trembling mess every time he touches her....


Break This:

Sparks fly when a world class MMA fighting bear shifter, and a plus size model with a special talent end up as unlikely allies. Will Thea's love give Chance what he needs to survive his 300th Moon? Or will something finally break this bear?


Bear This:

Dreamy volunteer firefighter Ethan Chambers is everyone’s hero. But when a familiar young woman with a magical secret arrives at his doorstep can he manage to play the gentleman? Or will this fireman burn for something more? Join Ethan and Evangeline for a treasure hunt, a chili cook-off, and a second chance to find love in their own backyard… until forces of evil threaten their newfound happiness. Will Evangeline crumble? Or will she be able to bear this challenge?


One magical spell.

Six shifter siblings with a debt to pay.

300 moons.

Contains All Three Episodes of Fate of the Alpha!

(Be sure to grab the discounted Curse of the Alpha bundle for more!)

Something wicked is headed for Tarker's Hollow...

Ainsley Connor is faced with her toughest challenge yet. With her mate gone, she’s left alone to defend her territory from rival wolves, dark magic, and worst of all, the threat of losing her pack if she doesn’t impress her superiors.

Erik Jensen is not who he claims to be. When he comes to the shifter town of Copper Creek to help after a mining accident, he discovers there is more going on than meets the eye. Now he must uncover the secret of the sleepy little town, before the wolves discover his.

Grace Kwan-Cortez knows how tough it is being a cop in a town full of shape-shifters, magic and who knows what else. What she isn’t prepared for are the feelings she can’t seem to shake since meeting Julian. And she can’t decide which option she dreads more, that he ensnared her in some sort of spell, or that the feelings might actually be real.

Julian Magie is in possession of certain information. Information that could change Tarker’s Hollow, and the world, forever. Torn between his sworn duty and his allegiance to his friends, Julian must decide who to trust, and where his true loyalties lie.
