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.

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.

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.

RAZAEL
I am one of the Fallen, an angel in shadow... and Lust was the Sin that doomed me.
My most trusted shadow angeling has miraculously returned to the Light—and everything is chaos because of it. All my Regiment want their shot at Redemption. But I’ve got a war to prosecute, two pregnant humans to protect, and the nagging demon of doubt to battle. My angelings may find their way to the Light again, but I am angel—and a Warrior class Seraphim does not return to the Light once he Falls. But being angel means the allure of humans is even greater for me than my angelings. I’ve warned them to stay away from the human women we’re protecting, but I am the one their Virtues sing to most strongly…

EDEN
All I’ve ever wanted was a family... instead I got a nightmare.
Having a baby of my own was a dream that would never come true—cancer stole that dream from me. So I worked in daycare and planned to adopt some day. Then an incredibly handsome man promised the impossible—a child of my own. I should have known it was a bargain with the devil, and that devil made me pay. Now, I live for the baby growing in my womb, but it’s all I can do to hold together the shattered pieces of my mind until the baby comes... and pray the baby’s demon father doesn’t come for me again.

In a war that threatens mortals and immortals alike, those in shadow have the most to lose—if the Warrior Angels awaken, it will spell their doom. But if Redemption might be found through love, not war... could even an immortal angel resist temptation?

FALLEN ANGELS is a follow-on series from the bestselling FALLEN IMMORTALS series. It contains sexy hot angels of light—and shadow.

JAK: I’m the bodyguard for a woman who was captured and mated against her will.
Watching Arianna get hurt is tearing me apart. The mating bond is everything great about being a wolf—sexy, euphoric, bonded for life—but for her, it’s an invisible prison cell. And I want like hell to break her free. But it’s impossible—her mate is my alpha’s brother. And I owe him my life. Not to mention he’s my boss in the most prestigious dot-com investing company in Seattle.

But what is that worth if I have to watch a beautiful woman destroyed before my eyes?

ARIANNA: The magic holds me captive, but I’ve never stopped dreaming of being free.
Six months. Just six months since I was mated to Mace. Seems like an eternity. But I finally convinced him to let me go back to school—that way I can help in the pack’s business. Maybe I’ll win a little more freedom along the way. A little more room to breathe. Even if I must return every night to a mate who takes what he wants, no matter what. School is as free as I’ll get—and my bodyguard is a breath of fresh air in a life that feels like it’s choking me.

But when my bodyguard saves my life from an attack by rogue wolves… everything changes.

Is love stronger than magic? Or will breaking an unbreakable bond destroy them both?

Saving Arianna (Dot Com Wolves 2) is a super-hot complete story with HEA.
