For four thousand years, creatus elders have insisted that the creatus population concealed themselves from human beings because humans had hunted the creatus almost to extinction…

 

But one woman’s research reveals that when creatus first arrived on this planet, humans didn’t fear the alien beings that looked so much like the human race. That is, until the creatus started to breed with humans, creating a ferocious killer feared by humans and creatus alike. A creature so fierce that its legacy of death and destruction has fed nightmares for millennia. And now, a new breed of creatus has been born — or rather, reborn.


Vev, one of the first generations of creatus talis, finds herself torn between her younger family members and a forbidden love as she fights to save the young talis from being turned into a weapon — or worse, annihilation.

About the author

Carmen DeSousa’s stories overflow with romance, suspense, a hint of humor and, of course, a few Kleenex moments. After all, what would a great story be without an emotional event setting the stage? All of her novels are sensual, but not erotic, gripping but not graphic, and will make you cry, laugh, love, and hope. Although some of her books include supernatural or ghostly beings, her stories dance on the edge of make believe. Carmen’s hope is that as you read her stories, you'll wonder, "Hmmm...what if?"

Derrick's desire to save one human girl will ignite a war...


For four thousand years, creatus have concealed themselves from the humans who hunted them almost to extinction. Unwittingly, one creatus will endanger them all...


As with most of his family, Derrick Ashton knows his future and what position he's destined to fill within his unique society. Everything changes, however, when he breaks one of his family's strictest laws and falls in love -- with a human.


In his quest to protect the woman he can never have, a twist of fate propels him into a new role that will cause dissension among his family and endanger the anonymity that they've spent thousands of years protecting.


Now, he will risk everything to save the girl from humans and his own kind. The one thing he can't save her from, however...is herself.



The Creatus series is not your normal paranormal story...it's a realistic supernatural romantic suspense based on the myths you've heard your entire life. Prepare to believe...



Editorial Reviews:


⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ "This story is completely unique, and is definitely not generic sex and vampires. In fact, I think Creatus will redefine the paranormal genre. Creatus has intrigue, suspense, romance, and tremendous depth." -- Quiet Fury Books


⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ "This book could easily classify itself as romance / mystery / suspense / thriller... I'm not a big Twilight fan, but I did enjoy the first movie... I found Creatus reminding me somewhat of Twilight, but with actors I loved." -- New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Linda S. Prather


⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ "...well written, compassionately told, and creates characters that make you want to know them better. It is the foundation for a great series, and I believe it will be quite popular." -- Sweet Mystery Books.


Bonus Material! This special-edition boxed set includes the prequel, Creatus (They Exist), Creatus (Book One), and a sneak peek at Creatus Rogue.

The Midnight Sons ~ Men as Wild and Rugged as The Last Frontier Itself


Five brothers risk their lives to rescue those caught in the death grip of the Alaska wilderness…and find their hearts in danger of falling for women as tough as the Land of the Midnight Sun.


The siren call of Alaska’s untamed wilderness, vast mountain ranges, and majestic glaciers draw thrill-seekers from around the globe. But with more unsolved missing person cases than anywhere else in the world, the Alaska Triangle has an ominous reputation. Enter the Midnight Sons, a team that risks their own lives to rescue those in peril.


Being a hero isn’t all it’s cracked up to be, though. The pay sucks, as does the fact that the team leaders have to be ready to spring into action 24/7, 365 days a year—a lifestyle not conducive to a healthy love life. Worse, while the brothers are experts in their individual fields, they each harbor inner demons and secrets that threaten to tear their family apart… and jeopardize any chance of finding the women who could complete them.


Book One: Sam’s Folly


When a bigwig fight promoter needs someone to search for his missing fiancée, he hires expert tracker Sam Belgarde and his search dogs. Sam is more than a little reluctant. His family’s company, Search and Rescue Alaska, is in financial trouble, though, so if searching for a spoiled socialite will save it, then he’s willing to break the rules—just this once.


After witnessing a murder, Nora Molina needs to get away—fast—and her best hope to escape without her passport is Alaska. A native of Argentina, Nora’s accustomed to harsh winters and high elevation, so she gets more than a little irritated when some tracker thinks she needs rescuing. Even if he is get-out sexy. And even if he’s the guy she stood up before leaving town. It’s going to be a long few days.


When an unexpected storm rolls in, Sam and Nora find themselves in each other’s arms—to keep warm. Things get a little too hot when it’s clear someone wants the two of them to stay lost—permanently.

 Welcome to Middlemarch, rural home of a secret community of black leopard shifters. Residence of the Mitchell brothers and their friends. All scallywags and rascals, according to the elders on the Feline council.
But with a shortage of marriageable females, what is a single man to do when his livelihood is chained to the land and there are no women to offer distraction? They get up to enough mischief to turn the oldest Mitchell brother’s hair gray. That’s what.

Want to know a secret?

All that is about to change because the elders have a plan. They’re set on changing the status quo and are arranging a ball to entice young women to the rural town. And, from what I hear, that is just the start of their grandiose plans.

This should be very interesting. Let’s stand back and watch the fall-out.

My Scarlet Woman, book one

Emily Scarlet’s husband left her for his secretary and died in a car accident—all on the same day. Now, six months later, Emily has emerged from her chrysalis of painful memories. To prove she has what it takes to attract a man, she’s determined to experience one perfect night of passion.

Feline shapeshifter, Saber Mitchell has a problem with his four boisterous younger brothers. They’re out of control, causing trouble and dragging him into the mire. It’s too late for him, but he hopes to get his brothers mated and settled, and the inaugural Middlemarch ball is the place to introduce them to marriageable women.

Unbridled sex is the last thing on Saber’s mind, but one glimpse of the bubbly Emily Scarlet in her slinky red dress changes his mind. Sex with her is a necessity. They dance. They make love—passionate, intoxicating and satisfying.

One thing is clear—a single night isn’t enough. Saber must have her for his mate, but Emily isn’t so easy to convince…or trust.

My Younger Lover, book two

Feline shifter Lisa Jordan lost her husband two years ago and now it’s time to start living again. At the Middlemarch singles’ ball, she’s attracted to a sexy shifter, but his identity comes as a huge shock. A big, big shock since man she’s ogling is one she knew as a teenager.

Sam Mitchell has harbored a crush on Lisa for years. A relationship was impossible then, but now he’s eager to stake his claim. A few dances turns into a one-night stand full of exciting, satisfying sex. Sam wants more, but first he’ll need to persuade Lisa to his way of thinking.

Back at home in Christchurch, Lisa’s life takes a different turn when she attracts the attention of a mystery stalker. Juggling her safety and a romance with the gorgeous Sam is certainly spicing up her life. If only she lives to enjoy the rewards.

My Peeping Tom, book three

The residents of Middlemarch have a nickname for reporter Tomasine Brooks. They call her Peeping Tom and refuse to answer her questions about the mysterious black cats spotted in the vicinity. To them she’s an outsider—the enemy—who has no place in their close-knit shifter community.

Tomasine is determined to find a safe place to settle but earning the locals’ trust seems impossible. In desperation, she decides to seduce the sexy Felix Mitchell into giving away Middlemarch’s secrets because it’s a matter of life or death…hers.

From the moment feline shifter Felix Mitchell crashes into Tomasine outside the post office he desires her with an urgency that makes him suspect they are fated mates. When they are together the connection is hot, the sex is spicy and she makes him happy, but Tomasine is close-mouthed about her past—a past that can threaten their future together.
To be the hero he once was, he needs to save her...


Alex Belgarde has carried the culpability of his father’s death for more than ten years. Every year, as his family’s company falls deeper into debt, the guilt eats away more of his soul until there’s only one answer. Prepared to make the ultimate sacrifice to save his father’s legacy, Alex takes off on a frigid winter day with no radio and very little fuel in his seaplane. He’s using up the last of his reserve tank, preparing to drop from the sky, when he sees plane wreckage below.


Irene Rose has spent her life chasing her dream. But after a possible terminal diagnosis, she realizes how lonely her life has become and is ready to forgive her sister and beg for her family’s forgiveness. Instead of arriving on the island of her birth, Irene finds herself stranded in the Alaskan wilderness. Unbeknownst to her, the pilot for the plane she chartered was a drug runner, so he didn’t alert authorities as they crashed.


While Alex’s illogical idea to save his father’s company is thwarted because of his obligation to help others, he finds purpose in offering aid to the beautiful and intelligent Irene. The attraction is mutual until Irene persuades Alex to tell her the real reason he can’t simply fly them to safety or call for help. Now the two castaways will have to fight the harsh winter elements, as well as the drug smugglers who lost their cargo in the wreck, if they want to make it home alive. Not easy tasks when Irene refuses to trust Alex to get her home safely. She simply can’t get over the fact that as talented, tough, and tantalizing as he is that he was going to throw his life away when hers will probably be cut short.


For the first time in his life, Alex will have to face his demons instead of running from them in order to win the girl and prove to himself that he’s a real hero.
