A love lost in dark magic. A path to redemption obscured by evil…

Cruelly dumped at the altar by the man she loves, Miranda McAllister turns her back on Santa Fe and takes off with Simon Gutierrez, who promises to help her develop her newly awakened magical powers…even though her logical self warns against acting on impulse so soon after her humiliation at Rafe Castillo’s hands.

Under Simon’s patient guidance, Miranda discovers the astounding depth and breadth of her gifts. Yet too many unanswered questions leave her uneasy, especially when Simon indicates he’d like to move them out of the friend zone.

Rafe Castillo still can't figure out what the hell happened the day of his wedding. A powerful spell forced him to spew those spiteful words at Miranda…and whoever cast that spell has covered their tracks so thoroughly, no trace remains — to Rafe's human form, at least. His coyote alter ego can track fainter wisps of magic, magic as dark and hateful as the things he said that fateful day at the church.

Intent on finding Miranda no matter what, Rafe relentlessly follows a twisting, turning, increasingly deadly trail. But by the time he learns the truth, the race to save her from an unspeakable evil may already be lost….

This boxed set contains books four through six in the epic post-apocalyptic Djinn Wars series:

BROKEN:

Two leaders.
Two worlds.
Passion ignites…
…just as the storm erupts.

Julia Innes, leader of the Immune survivors in Los Alamos, has done her best to ensure that the rest of her fellow Immune have settled into their new lives after the Dying. Even the friendly Santa Fe djinn have followed suit, creating a calm between the two cities — a world of peaceful co-existence.

But all is not as it seems...

Although she refuses to give in to her feelings, Julia struggles with her need for Zahrias al-Harith, the leader of the Santa Fe djinn, knowing her desire will never be reciprocated. But when a crisis brings her face to face with Zahrias, she worries that she won’t be able to hide her attraction to the man who holds her heart. As an unforeseen threat shatters the fragile peace, Zahrias must confront an adversary from his past. Julia is forced into their conflict, catapulting her into the world of the djinn…and drawing her into a struggle where far more than just her heart is at stake.

FORSAKEN:

More than a year ago, a djinn-created plague nearly wiped out all of humanity…

Ever since, Madison Reynolds has been hiding. Leaving her underground sanctuary means risking her life at the hands of vengeful elementals hellbent on killing off the world's few remaining survivors. But when her curiosity and need for exploration get the best of her, she crosses paths with Qadim al-Syan, the new steward of Albuquerque. Despite her better judgment — and her fear of the djinn — she finds herself drawn into his orbit. She knows she must resist her ever-growing attraction for this otherworldly being, who’s unlike any man she’s ever met. But the pull just might be too great. Will succumbing to her desire mark her for certain death?

FORBIDDEN:

Sentenced to the worst punishment a djinn can receive...

Imprisoned in the outer circles of the otherworld, Aldair al-Ankara is doomed to unending suffering. Believing he’ll never escape, he’s accepted his dismal fate. But when destiny steps in, everything changes for Aldair.

Ever since the Heat wiped out most of the world’s population, Jillian Powell has done nothing but try to make herself useful and helpful. When a lab accident hurls her into the otherworld’s outer circles, a handsome stranger saves her from certain death. Escaping and finding sanctuary in an isolated New Mexico town, Aldair and Jillian fight their growing attraction for one another. But even as their chemistry intensifies, reality sets in. Suddenly, they both realize that keeping Aldair hidden from the rest of the djinn might be harder than they ever imagined….

Chaos is his element…until a mortal woman’s touch snares his heart.

Catalina Castillo should be happy in her renovated vineyard house, weaving intricate tapestries. But her nights echo with emptiness — until she hears her name whispered on the wind, and a man steps out from among the vines.

He’s tall, black-haired, a stranger — and then he shifts. He’s the Lord of Chaos, the demon who helped the Castillo clan defeat their arch-enemy. When she offers him shelter, she’s not sure if it’s family honor or her body talking.

After months of being stranded on Earth, Loc has finally found a warlock with the power to send him back to his own world. But the dark New Orleans spellcaster wants something in return. Cat is the key to capturing the prize, but as desire weaves its spell between them, Loc finds himself struggling with something he’s rarely bothered with…a conscience.

With the demon realm calling him home, their attraction can never be more than that. But when the warlock kidnaps Cat, Loc realizes what he stands to lose. If he doesn’t act fast, she won’t need her innate ability to talk to ghosts. Because she’ll be one of them herself….

Demon Born is the fifth novel in the Witches of Canyon Road series, a spin-off from Christine Pope’s bestselling Witches of Cleopatra Hill books. Although characters from previous books in the series appear, this is a standalone paranormal romance.

To find a dangerous grimoire, they’ll have to break a few rules…and maybe their hearts.

When warlock Tony Castillo picks up Cassandra Sandoval at the airport, the copper-haired witch brings his restless, aimless life into razor-sharp focus…and triggers a wince-inducing case of foot-in-mouth disease. Luckily, her cool, hazel-green gaze betrays not a flicker of answering attraction. Nope, Cassandra is all business. Which Tony can understand, given the magnitude of her task.

Cassandra has one job: retrieve the de la Paz grimoires from the heavily warded hiding place at Tony’s family home, conceal them with her unique shielding power, and immediately return them to her clan’s territory. Easy. Quick. No time for anything to go wrong, to give in to the temptation of a too-handsome warlock.

They find Tony’s mother unconscious and the grimoires missing, the only clue a slimy residue reeking of Escobar magic. As they race to get the dangerous books out of the wrong hands, Cassandra and Tony cross a few boundaries, break a few more rules, and find something neither expected — love. But if they fail, nothing will shield them, or the world as they know it, from unrelenting evil.

Note: An Ill Wind is a standalone, no-cliffhangers romance in the Witches of Canyon Road series. It takes place approximately four months after the events of book 5, Demon Born.
