It takes a monster to catch one.

ZANE WALKER—FBI, Magickal Crimes Division

There’s a reason the bureau sends me undercover with the worst drug cartels in the world—my magick is as illegal and dirty as the enhancers they peddle. Just the kind that "Pennies" Machnik—Dziki crime lord—likes to use on his enemies. Being his enforcer lets me keep my own monster locked up while I build a case against him. If I can bring Pennies in, maybe I can finally put the stigma of what I am behind me. But when people start overdosing on his street drugs, a beautiful witch storms in, making demands she thinks she can back up with magick. I have to make a split second choice... and the monster comes raging out.


EVER STRANGE—CEO, Strange Medical Technologies

Someone has killed my father. They made it look like an overdose, but Asher Strange, the world-renown researcher of medical magick, never took an illegal drug in his life… much less tawdry magick enhancers. I run the family empire, but no one was more proud of the Strange family name than my father. A long line of us stretches back to the first days of High Magick—no way he would throw that away chasing a quick high. But before I can get an autopsy, my father’s body disappears… and being a Level One mage and one of the richest women in the city means I will get answers.


Someone’s putting deadly magick into street drugs… and it’s killing people all over Chicago. Zane’s magick is monstrous, and Ever’s power brings out his beast. But she insists on finding her father; and keeping her safe has suddenly become his job—on top of stopping an epidemic of overdoses that just might be cover for a serial killer. Together, they work to stop the dark magick that’s stalking the streets of Chicago… and try to keep their own secrets from consuming them both.


Ever Strange is the first book in the paranormal romantic suspense series Legal Magick from bestselling romance author Alisa Woods. The first three books in the series (Ever Strange, Mercy Strange, Verity Strange) follow the three Strange sisters, each powerful witches in an influential magickal family embroiled in a mysterious plot to change everything about the magickal world. Part urban fantasy, Legal Magick takes place in an alternate Chicago where High Magick returned in 1859 and is now integral in every aspect of the legal—and illegal—world. Each book is a standalone romance.

LEKSANDER

I am a Dragon Prince of the House of Smoke… and I am in love with the wrong woman.

I never meant to fall for an angeling. And I wasn’t supposed to have the duty of fulfilling a ten-thousand-year-old treaty to protect humanity. But now I’m trapped between the immutable facts of magic and the irresistible force of my love. When a fae queen offers unparalleled sex and an unprecedented renewal of the treaty, the temptation is substantial. If only the prospect didn’t leave me hollow inside…


ERELAH

I am Protector class, Chastity faction—an angeling whose sworn duty and greatest joy is protecting humanity. The House of Smoke is likewise a guardian, and their prince is one of my oldest friends. Any angeling worth her wings would struggle with the Sin of Envy to take my place. But they know not of Leksander’s stubbornness in refusing his duty to mate and produce a dragonling. How hard can it be to win a human’s heart? I would give my life if it would help. All depends upon this…


He must win her heart or finally let her go. Her vow of Chastity means she’s never known love. Either they’ll save the mortal and immortal worlds with a Love that is True… or they’ll bring a Fall like the world has never seen.

Some Talents are too dangerous to keep.

MERCY STRANGE—Genetic Research Lead, Strange Medical Technologies

There’s a madman who calls himself a scientist… and I have to stop him. Never mind that his med-magick drugs might be the key to my own research. Never mind that his red-and-yellow pill tempts me with the promise of turning off a Talent I’d give anything to erase. The madman developed his med-magick with an illegal drug trial, performing experiments on people like my father—and using my own family’s company to do it! The madman will pay for that, even if I have to hunt him down myself. I’ll train the FBI’s insanely sexy field agent to go undercover after the killer, but when this is done, I’ll be taking that pill… and finally destroying the part of me that’s too dangerous to keep.


SWIFT PAYNE—FBI, Science and Magick Lab

This is just another job. I keep telling myself that, but Mercy’s emotional soundscape sings to me like no other. There’s so much she’s hiding, just under the surface. She doesn’t know what I am—few people do—and it needs to stay that way. Because I’m not just following leads to find our serial-killer-by-drugs—I’m investigating her. And if she’s dirty in this, I’ll have to march her out in handcuffs. Or get yanked from the case. Or get sent back to the military work I barely escaped. Mercy’s dangerously tempting, but I can’t go back there again. Yet I can’t seem to tear myself away from the music of her oh-so-brilliant mind...


Someone’s developed a drug that can erase magickal Talents… and they need to be stopped before they kill anyone else. Swift’s Talent is secret, and Mercy’s secret is her Talent. But they have to work together to find the mad scientist with the killer drugs… before he unleashes them on the streets of Chicago.


Mercy Strange is the second book in the paranormal romantic suspense series Legal Magick from bestselling romance author Alisa Woods. The first three books in the series (Ever Strange, Mercy Strange, Verity Strange) follow the three Strange sisters, each powerful witches in an influential magickal family embroiled in a mysterious plot to change everything about the magickal world.

A madman. A sex cult. And world-changing genetic magick.

VERITY STRANGE—Hedge Witch, Youngest Daughter of the Strange Family

Seeing the future isn’t all it’s cracked up to be—especially when you can’t change it. Even more so when your Talent nearly kills you. I’ve searched the world for a guru—a magickal monk—who could help me tame my divination powers, but most were frauds or worse. Being young and female is precarious when you’re consorting with powerful adepts. But then I met Eliphas Storm, and everything changed...


WYLDE BANE—FBI Analyst, Cult Expert

Eliphas Storm is like any other cult leader. Never mind that he’s gathered millions of followers to his sex-magick-enhancing temples. Never mind that he’s likely the madman behind these Talent-destroying drugs. He’s all about the power to control people—people like the beautiful and naive Verity Strange—and I’m determined to take him down. I grew up in a cult, and I know just how much he could damage a woman like her. But going undercover with an uncooperative asset is a good way to get me killed. And stepping back into the world I left is dangerous in a whole different way...


Wylde is intent on bringing down a charismatic cult leader. Verity is bent on proving his innocence and seducing her way into his inner circle. Together, they have to stop whoever is making the Talent-destroying drugs threatening Chicago’s magickal populace.


Verity Strange is the third book in the paranormal romantic suspense series Legal Magick from bestselling romance author Alisa Woods.

CHOSEN

When a fatal fever nearly wipes out the entire world's population, the survivors of what became known as "the Dying" believe the worst is in the past. Little do they know…

In the aftermath of the Dying, survivor Jessica Monroe searches for sanctuary in a world unlike any she's ever known before. As fear and isolation envelop her, Jessica encounters the sensitive and helpful Jace, who she believes is another survivor. But Jace has a past and secrets of his own that's he not ready to disclose. Soon Jessica realizes that the destruction of humanity might actually be the first step in a larger, more complicated plan -- a plan that may very well involve her. Struggling to discover her role in a terrifying new world where everything has changed, she must decide who she can trust. But is the price for that trust just too high?

TAKEN

The choice is hers...
Live life alone, or risk everything for the djinn man she loves?

Jessica Monroe's time is running out.  A survivalist group is intent on eradicating Jace and all others of his kind, and it's up to her to rescue him from the stronghold of the Immune. With the survivors developing a weapon that could quite easily tip the scales in the war between human and djinn, Jessica is determined to save the man she loves -- even if means betraying what's left of humanity. 

FALLEN 

Would you sacrifice it all for the man you love?

When a group of rogue djinn attacks Taos, Jessica Monroe has no choice but to activate the device that was created to rid the elementals of their supernatural powers, even though the machine's very existence threatens to ruin the lives of her lover and friends.  It's up to Jessica to launch a desperate mission to retrieve the one person who can help: Miles Odekirk, the mastermind who created the device.

The threat of retaliation by the Los Alamos survivors is not the only danger Jessica must face. Enemies lurk around every corner, and when an ancient rival returns to carry out his own revenge, Jessica may have to make the ultimate sacrifice to save the man she loves, as well as the entire Taos community, human and djinn alike.
