Nevada Hamilton has learned
a few things since becoming a Sin City Collector, and staying away from
vampires is one of them. After botching her first Collection, the vamp
getting away after causing as much damage as possible, she hasn’t been
assigned to another one since.
But when she receives her next
playing card, she’s in for a surprise. Not only is a vampire her next
target, but they’ve paired her up to make sure she gets the job done
right. Refusing a Collection is not an option, but when she discovers
who she’s working with, making the mission as difficult as possible for
her new partner becomes her top priority…
Being a hellhound isn’t
enough to protect Jake Troubadour from Nevada Hamilton, no matter how
thick his skin is. Finding out he has to work with the beautiful
dhampir, after not seeing her for three years, is a low blow—but Jake is
a professional. He takes his Collections as seriously as he does
running his bar. He’ll do whatever it takes to get the job done, but
after that, he’s out. No more chances for the girl who wrecked his bike
and scarred his soul so long ago. But even with his heart dead set
against it, this hellhound quickly finds he’s not immune to love after

Phoebe Meadows has one thing on her mind: Free her mother.
For the last month, Phoebe has been training in the Valkyrie stronghold readying for battle. But when she stumbles into a secluded valley after a day of grueling practice, she’s given a dire prediction. Phoebe must leave the stronghold immediately with the aid of the giant, Junnal, to rescue her mother from the dark elves. If Phoebe fails, Leela will be transported to a place that can no longer be reached.
Leaving Fen behind threatens to undo her, but Phoebe stays true to the mission. Along the way, she allies with the god Baldur and an old white elf mage. Together, they storm the realm, and with the help of an angry wolf and her Valkyrie sisters, they just might stand a chance to free the valiant shieldmaiden.
But Phoebe soon learns that in order to save her mother, she might lose something too precious to sacrifice…
Phoebe Meadows is on trial for her life.
After freeing her half-brother, Baldur, Phoebe is set to stand before the Council in Asgard to answer for her actions. The threat of exile if she’s found guilty looms, not to mention the added stress of meeting her real father for the first time.
Upon entering Asgard, Phoebe discovers new allies in a half-brother she’s never met as well as an oracle who is in possession of valuable information. A little added help couldn’t have come at a better time, because when Phoebe is tossed into an unknown realm, she’s only armed with Gundren, a jewel, and her wits.
When Loki shows up, all bets are off. The trickster god throws a wrench in Phoebe’s plans and kidnaps Fen, her only ally. And just when she thinks she sees the light at the end of the tunnel, Phoebe finds she has to defeat one last obstacle: The Norns.
And they aren’t planning to go down without a fight…
