Free sample


Half-breed identical twins Eva and Erie Kaylee want to forget that they’re half-wolf but when Erie is kidnapped by a fanatical cult bent on ending the human world, Eva has no choice but to ask for help.

From the minute the curvy brunette climbed through his window, L.A. SWAT captain Elijah Kane, knew she was trouble. And he isn’t wrong. An ancient prophecy, his own brother raining destruction, and the threat of all hell breaking loose — makes for one really bad day.

And it’s about to get worse.

Eva is his mate. Only…she doesn’t know it yet.

Elijah doesn’t want to be a hero. He doesn’t want to be Eva's mate.

Too bad he doesn’t have a choice.

The Blood Moon is about to rise — and if he wants to save his mate, he’s going to have to save the world, too.

**Author’s Note: Alexx Andria originally wrote this 56,000 word novel as a three-part serial under her Kinsey McClane pseudonym. The book has been revised and re-released for a fresh reading experience!


“Who are you?”

His voice, thick with a growl, made her shiver with real fear. Elijah Kane was no ordinary man — he was Wolvryn, descended from pack leaders and a captain with the L.A. SWAT team. He could rip her to shreds and arrest her.

Eva recognized the sound of a partial shift. His fangs were probably cutting into his bottom lip, sending a rivulet of blood down his chin while black-tipped claws curved into vicious killing implements.

She’d seen what claws like that could do to human flesh. So much blood. He flipped the light, momentarily blinding her and she backed against the wall, stunned by how massive he was.

Impossibly tall, probably about six foot, five inches, a solid two hundred and eighty pounds of pure muscle, with ebony hair that dusted his shoulders and moss green eyes that narrowed with suspicion as he awaited her answer — he was both beautiful and terrifying. And nearly naked.

“M-my name is Eva…Eva Kaylee. I-“ She stopped as he abruptly sniffed the air, everything about him tense. He strode to her, coming within inches, crowding her personal space and causing her to shake. “W-what are you doing?” she dared to ask when he wouldn’t back away. “Please…you’re scaring me.”

“What are you?” he asked, ignoring her plea. “I smell human…but not human.” Suddenly his lip curled and he stepped away. “You’re a half-breed.”

She tried not to feel stung — his opinion was nothing new. Most pure Wolvryn scorned her kind. Lifting her chin, she said as coolly as she could muster given the fact that she was scared out of her mind. “Yes. I am half-human. And if I had a choice, I wouldn’t be Wolvryn at all. I hate being part freak.”

“What pack are you from?”

“I have no pack.”

A six-part paranormal romance featuring two wolf shifter clans struggling to survive an ancient prophecy destined to change the world.

There is no escaping destiny — and it's coming straight for Cassandra and Tieran whether they are ready for the consequences or not.

Alpha werewolf Tieran doesn't want Cassandra for his mate but he can't seem to help himself when he's around her. The pull is too strong to fight, the attraction soul-deep.

Cassandra doesn't want anything to do with werewolves or the prophecy, particularly when it seems that every time she turns around, someone is either trying to control her life or end it. And now she's destined to be with Tieran, an Alpha with a seriously bad attitude? No thank you.
She'd rather just go back to her boring life and forget all about prophecies, a previously unknown paranormal world, and definitely the werewolf who sets her teeth — and blood — on edge.

If only that were possible.

Caught between two warring werewolf clans, and carrying two babies, one potentially evil and the other the possible savior of the world, has no choice but to follow her destiny straight into Tieran's hard, muscled arms or else face a future where nothing but death is certain for the human race.

When the fate of the world is at stake, everything else pales in importance...even love. But Cassandra and Tieran discover that love might be what saves them all.

The #1 New York Times bestselling series finale and sequel to A Discovery of Witches and Shadow of Night.
Look for the hit TV series “A Discovery of Witches” airing Sundays on AMC and BBC America, and streaming on Sundance Now and Shudder.
After traveling through time in Shadow of Night, the second book in Deborah Harkness’s enchanting series, historian and witch Diana Bishop and vampire scientist Matthew Clairmont return to the present to face new crises and old enemies. At Matthew’s ancestral home at Sept-Tours, they reunite with the cast of characters from A Discovery of Witches—with one significant exception. But the real threat to their future has yet to be revealed, and when it is, the search for Ashmole 782 and its missing pages takes on even more urgency. In the trilogy’s final volume, Harkness deepens her themes of power and passion, family and caring, past deeds and their present consequences. In ancestral homes and university laboratories, using ancient knowledge and modern science, from the hills of the Auvergne to the palaces of Venice and beyond, the couple at last learn what the witches discovered so many centuries ago.
With more than one million copies sold in the United States and appearing in thirty-eight foreign editions, A Discovery of Witches and Shadow of Night have landed on all of the major bestseller lists and garnered rave reviews from countless publications. Eagerly awaited by Harkness’s legion of fans, The Book of Life brings this superbly written series to a deeply satisfying close.
