If no one gets close, no one will know she’s broken…

Haunted by nightmares after a terrible attack, detective Iselin Marr takes a transfer to quiet Gravenhill where no one knows her history. If she can just keep her head down, handle the simple small-town cases, and not allow any romantic complications, her psyche can heal.

Except her first day on the job threatens everything. Gravenhill’s only—and never apprehended—serial killer is murdering again, mutilating women in ways that make Iselin’s nightmares worse, and her new partner, detective Tyler Kelly, is sexier than sin. Their instant sizzling attraction threatens her resolve, but with the killer’s accelerating murder rate, she can’t let Tyler in. He’ll see how psychologically damaged she is and pull her from the case before she can prove to herself she’s stronger than her nightmares… if the killer doesn’t find her first.

The monsters of myth are real…

… and Morgan has no idea who to trust. Anyone, even someone on her team, could be in league with the madman trying to kill her and no place is safe. She doesn’t know how to stop him, only knows this is her fight. Alone. And it will take everything she has to stay alive.

This boxed set includes the final four books in this action-packed dark urban fantasy series: Case #10: Shards of Stone, Case #11: Fallen Stone, Case #12: Trapped in Stone, and Case #13: Hard as Stone.


CASE #10: SHARDS OF STONE

No one left to trust…

After a disastrous hunt to stop the bomber and find a cure for the contagion that’s turning Kin into humans, Morgan is arrested and accused of colluding with the bomber. Every instinct she has screams the madman toying with her, Ander, is involved. Just like her instincts are certain a member of the Kin’s High Council is working with him. Except anyone, not just a council member, could be involved with his plans—even someone on her team—and Morgan doesn’t know how to escape the council’s custody or who she can trust.


CASE #11: FALLEN STONE

On the brink of death and on the run…

Morgan doesn’t know how everything went so wrong. Once she was a United States Marshal; now she’s a fugitive wanted by the Kin’s High Council. She doesn’t want to get her human friend involved, but Kate is more likely to know a place to hide that doesn’t have a Kin connection, making it harder for the council to find her. Except everything she’s learned about not getting caught while hunting fugitives never took magic into account. 


CASE #12: TRAPPED IN STONE

No place to go…

For Morgan, running or hiding is no longer an option. With her powerful gorgon sight and her inside knowledge of Kin politics, the High Council will never stop hunting her. Nor can she in good conscience turn her back on the Kin world. Ander might have stopped coming after her, but his terrible plans are still in motion, and as the last living gorgon, she’s the only one who has the power to stop him. She’ll need all the help she can get. Except that means making an alliance and she doesn’t know who she can trust.


CASE #13: HARD AS STONE

Hanging in the balance…

The final book in the Medusa Files series.

Morgan is out of options. Ander has proven with deadly force that he can possess anyone and she barely escaped the confrontation alive. As it is, the team is in shambles—injured and in shock. They need help… a plan… anything and everything. What they really need is more magic including magical healing, protection from possession, and anything else that could be used to defeat Ander.

But Morgan knows the truth. This is her fight. Alone. It’s always been her fight. Except even if she can somehow push her powers beyond their limits, she fears she is no match for Ander and her only real option to save her friends is to make the ultimate sacrifice.

C.I. Black
 The monsters of myth are real…

… and Morgan Jacobs is one of them. A danger to herself and others, her only way to protect everyone is to gain control over her powers. But this new reality is deadly and overwhelming and both her new allies—the dark and brooding Alexander Gage and the wicked bad boy Lachlin Kincade—are keeping secrets that could get her killed.

This boxed set includes Case #4: Carved From Stone, Case #5: Cold as Stone, and Case #6: Broken Stone.


CASE #4: CARVED FROM STONE

Even clearing her name might not keep her from prison.

After chasing down a Kin fugitive, Morgan Jacobs must face the truth: she’s dangerous. And the only way to protect herself and those around her is to gain control over her powers. But a madman, Ander, is toying with her, torturing her physically and psychologically, and in the end he plans to murder her. 

She’d love to lock herself away, hide from the threat and get her powers under control, but Rika—the team’s computer specialist—is accused of hacking a Kin leader’s server and stealing all the secrets on it, and that leader is threatening to charge the entire team with the crime. Now the team needs to clear Rika’s name, figure out who hacked the server, and return the stolen secrets—before they’re all locked up alongside the fugitive they just apprehended.


CASE #5: COLD AS STONE

The monsters of the past never truly let you go.

For Morgan Jacobs, the last two weeks have been hell. She’s learned she’s a monster of myth with the power to turn someone to stone, that those powers are barely under control, and that a madman is toying with her, torturing her before he kills her like he killed her mother.

To make things more confusing, she’s now living with her too-sexy co-workers, Alexander Gage and Lachlin Kincade, and attracted to both of them. Both men are keeping secrets from her, and Gage’s secrets are about to make everything more dangerous.


CASE #6: BROKEN STONE

This test of loyalty could break even the hardest stone.

Somehow Morgan and Gage survived the collision of Gage’s past with the present, but not without drawing accusations of treason from the Kin’s highest authority, the High Council. With no time to catch her breath or figure out how she feels about Gage and what she’s learned about him, the team is forced to prove their loyalty and go undercover to apprehend a black market magic dealer.

C.I. Black
 The monsters of myth are real…

… and Morgan’s life had gotten dangerously complicated. Even after clearing Gage’s name, the Kin High Council continues to suspect him and the team members of being traitors, and the madman taunting Morgan has raised the stakes. Now she’s playing for more than just her life but the lives of hundreds of innocent people.

This boxed set includes Case #7: Set in Stone, Case #8: Cut From Stone, and Case #9: Shattered Stone.


CASE #7: SET IN STONE

To free the one man she trusts, she must work with a man who hates her.

If Morgan had thought life couldn’t get more complicated, she was dead wrong. The attraction between her and Gage has risen to sizzling heights—making Lachlin determined to force her from the team. As well, the madman toying with her has made it clear he has plans for her, and the team’s undercover operation didn’t eliminate the High Council’s suspicion of treason. 

Those suspicions increase when Gage is arrested by human authorities for murder, and now Morgan must find a way to work with Lachlin—and his dark, seductive draw—to clear Gage’s name.


CASE #8: CUT FROM STONE

This disaster could destroy everything she hadn’t realized she needed.

While Gage might be out of human custody, the Kin High Council remains suspicious of him and the team, and Lachlin is now even more determined to force Morgan to quit. The only person Morgan can trust is Gage, but her attraction to him has made her powers dangerously uncontrollable.

When someone sets off a bomb at a Kin high society party and releases a contagion that turns Kin into humans, the team must put their difference aside and stop their most dangerous threat yet.


CASE #9: SHATTERED STONE

Time is running out…

Another bomb has exploded and more Kin are infected, including Lachlin’s sister. If they don’t stop the bomber, more Kin will become human and go insane, or die. Every instinct Morgan has screams the madman toying with her, Ander, is behind the attacks, but she can’t prove it. All she knows is that he wants her dead and he wants control of the Kin High Council. Except Gage doesn’t believe her and proving herself right could get her infected—or worse, killed.
