His magic is older than time. But can it save her life?

Hayley McAllister thought she was safe, tucked away in tiny, unassuming Payson, Arizona. Her parents disagree and send her to stay in Jerome, where they hope their witch clan’s elders will be able to shield Hayley and her unusual gift from Joaquin Escobar, the dark user of magic who has taken over the Santiago clan in California.

As Hayley settles into her brother Brandon’s apartment in Jerome, she encounters temptation personified — the hunk next door. An insanely handsome Greek god of a warlock.

From the moment Levi meets Hayley, her serene blue eyes and quick smile weave a spell that has nothing to do with her magical talent — an ability to amplify any witch or warlock’s power with just a touch. Their attraction needs no amplification, but Levi’s high-octane, not-of-this-world powers are tested when Escobar’s demons attack.

The McAllister clan is strong, but it’s clear that even with Hayley’s signal boost, their wards may not keep Joaquin Escobar from opening a demonic portal to pluck her from their very midst. Unless Levi takes one last-ditch chance that would save Hayley’s life...but might cost his own.

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.

Three full-length books in the Witches of Cleopatra Hill paranormal romance series:

SYMPATHETIC MAGIC:

Some guys have all the luck….

Warlock "Lucky" Lucas Wilcox has a gift that ensures his success in all things, but his magic fails him completely when it comes to sexy Margot Emory, the vibrant “elder” of the McAllister witch clan.

Margot’s own magical gifts weren’t enough to protect her from a terrible romantic betrayal, and she’s wary of repeating past mistakes — especially with a Wilcox — even if it means she’s destined to live her life alone.

When Lucas sets his sights on the one woman he wants but can't have, it may take a bit of sympathetic magic for the couple to have the happy ending they deserve. (Book 4 of the Witches of Cleopatra Hill)

PROTECTOR:

Caitlin McAllister has been keeping a secret. While her clan suffers for lack of a seer, she’s been hiding her gift of second sight — hiding and running away from a destiny she does not want and has done her best to escape. Unfortunately, she finds that keeping secrets carries its own price when she and two of her friends end up in the hands of three evil warlocks who seem intent on using the young witches for their own dark purposes.

Far from her clan’s territory, Caitlin turns to Alex Trujillo, whose grandmother is the prima of the de la Paz witch clan and whose own gift is the ability to cast a unique kind of protective spell, to help her with tracking down the warlocks who kidnapped her friends.

As Alex and Caitlin work together to save her friends, they find themselves falling under one another's spell. But their combined talents may not be enough to save the kidnapped witches…or to stop a murderous conspiracy that threatens the safety of all the Arizona witch clans.

SPELLBOUND:

Saving his past could destroy her future….

Damaged and desperate, Danica Wilcox searches for sanctuary and peace of mind after enduring vile and brutal treatment by the dark warlock Matías Escobar. Hoping for safe haven at an old summer cabin owned by the Wilcox witch clan for more than a hundred years seems to be her safest option. But when her rejuvenating R&R is interrupted by a ghostly visitor, Danica sets out to solve the mystery of his death. 

Determined to uncover long-hidden truths, Danica takes a journey into the past, calling upon her own special gift of manipulating time. However, the secrets that she uncovers were meant to remain buried. Torn between loyalty to her family and the beyond-earthly pull she feels for the mysterious stranger, Danica struggles between what is right and what is wrong, between changing the past and altering the future. Can Danica save her “ghost’s” life without destroying the Wilcox clan entirely?

Chronicles of Cleopatra Hill includes the two “back in time” novellas from the Witches of Cleopatra Hill series, Bad Blood and The Arrangement. Although they’re set in the past and therefore can stand mostly on their own, it’s recommended that you read them after Spellbound, Book 6 in the series.

BAD BLOOD:

The star-crossed love that started it all…

Hannah McAllister’s future is laid out before her, as clear as her journey from Scotland to Arizona, where she will exchange vows with her dull-as-dishwater betrothed, Boyd. But for a precious few hours, she is free to explore the wonders of New York City, where she encounters a handsome, compelling warlock, Nathan Wilcox.

Nathan didn’t run into Hannah by accident. His brother and head of the clan, Jeremiah, sent him to learn more about the newest witch family to make an appearance in New York. He feels an instant, soul-deep connection to Hannah, but he, too, is betrothed to another based on clan loyalty, not love.

A walk in Central Park, a kiss, and the die is cast for love, betrayal, and a spell that will reverberate for generations to come…

Warning: Contains a star-crossed relationship that doesn’t end in a HEA, but sparks a chain reaction of love that echoes down the generations.

THE ARRANGEMENT:

Sometimes a curse becomes a blessing in disguise….

Jeremiah Wilcox's wife died cursing him and all the sons of his line. Struggling with his solitary existence, Jeremiah has spent the days since her death ensuring his family prospers…even while wishing for what he knows he'll never have.

When the enchanting, widowed Lorena Simms arrives in Flagstaff, Jeremiah finds he may have to reexamine everything he believes about the curse — and his own heart. But first he must convince Lorena that he will love her for who she truly is.  Can either of these cursed souls have a chance at true happiness?
From the author of the USA Today bestselling GLASS AND STEELE series comes this captivating new fantasy.

PRAISE OF THE PALACE OF LOST MEMORIES

"It captured my imagination and curiosity so deeply that I could not stop reading until the end." ~ ★★★★★ reviewer Patricia.

"enticing, engaging, and magical." ~ ★★★★★ reviewer love2readbooks.


The king's magnificent palace was built in a matter of weeks. No one saw the builders, no villagers are allowed beyond the gilded gate, and only one servant has ever left. The haunted look in her eyes as she was recaptured by the palace guards is something Josie, daughter of the village doctor, has never forgotten.

For Josie, the palace is a mystery that grows more intriguing after she meets the captain of the guards, a man known only as Hammer, as mysterious and captivating as the palace itself. Whispers of magic fuel Josie's desire to uncover the truth, but an ordinary girl like her can only dream of ever being invited inside.

When the king decides to take a wife from among the eligible daughters of the noble families, the palace gates are finally thrown open and the kingdom's elite pour in. In a court where old rivalries and new jealousies collide, the king's favorite is poisoned and the doctor is summoned. As her father's assistant, Josie finally sees inside the lavish walls, but she soon learns the palace won't surrender its secrets easily, for not a single resident, from the lowest servant to the king himself, has a memory from before the palace existed.

In the search for the truth, Josie is drawn deeper into danger, and the answers she seeks might shake the very foundations of the kingdom.
