But when her naughty hellhound lands her in trouble with the local werewolf pack, Sam is blackmailed into helping track and catch a killer. The steps she must take to appease the werewolves will put her right in the crosshairs of the angels. And with angels, there is no second chance.

Book 1
Blood Lust is an anthology of: Kept, Claimed, and Mated.



When werecat, Greta learns her tribe plans to sacrifice her on the next full moon to unleash the potent magic of her blood, a dark sorcerer is the only one strong enough to protect her. Will Dayne kill her as he has so many others of her kind, or is his grudge against her family strong enough to save her?


In the midst of a power struggle for vampire king, it soon becomes clear to Anthony that the only way to protect a fragile human in his care is to claim her as his mate. Meanwhile, his deepest wish is to have his lover awakened from the memory loss that took everything... not just the memories he meant to erase. 


Be small. Be invisible. It’s an understandable life mantra for a human woman in a world of monsters. But Jane’s blood contains a touch of vampire magic, making her an even bigger target. With her faster-than-normal healing time, she’s an ideal punching bag for the abusive vampire she’s been living with, the one she thought might protect her this time.

Paul owes a debt to the werewolf alpha, and Cole doesn’t care how he gets paid: flesh or coin. $10,000 or Jane? The human is a small price for the vampire to pay to be debt-free.

Cole is attractive and warm---so different from the coldness and death Jane has grown used to. If the werewolves didn’t have a worse reputation than the vampires, being taken by the alpha might feel like rescue, but Cole’s growing possessive nature, makes Jane fear he’ll only abuse her like the others. If he doesn’t, could becoming an alpha’s mate free her from the vampires for good?

What Readers are Saying About Blood Lust:

"If you love paranormal romance books that really tell a story without using sex scenes as a plot line, you will definitely enjoy this book." -Rhonda R. Robinson

"Apparently there is something appealing about some monsters because the "good" bad guys in this trilogy are yummy. If you're a sorcerer/vampire/werewolf junkie, then these are the books for you. Thoroughly enjoyable and worth the money."  - Miz J


"I love paranormal romances but sometimes when looking for a new author to read, I find myself disappointed. Not in this case. This book is 3 novellas in one and each one a page turner. While each one could be read separate, they do smoothly transition from one to the next. I also like how the attraction isn't an instant thing. The men and women work through prejudices and conflicts before they realize how suited they are for each other. If your looking for a new series to read, I would strongly recommend this one." - Angela Collins

"Zoe Winters is a "must read" author for me. I loved all three stories in Blood Lust. It's hard to pick a favorite one, because each one is unique in its own way. I know the "paranormal romance" market is flooded right now. But, this series is more than "just another one", I promise."  -Autumn Jones Lake

"Great stories, well told. Winters is a very good writer who managed to present a supernatural world without the use of anvil style exposition. The characters we're really developed for novellas and the author writes believable dialogue. I look forward to more!" -Amelia Kilometere

"Zoe Winters may well be one of my new favorite writers. Blood Lust is the first book of hers that I've read, but I can promise that it won't be the last.

Featuring three interconnected stories, Blood Lust deals with three women who find love in the last place that any of them expected and with three fantastic beasts that aren't what you might expect. Were-cats, vampires, and were-wolves, yes, please! Zoe brings to the table a clarity of vision with regard to her world that makes it feel very concrete and grounded and while putting a new spin on what could have turned into sterotypical depictions of these creatures. She also has a very good writing style that is a pleasure to read.

I definitely recommend this book for anyone who's looking for a fun read featuring spirited and sassy women, fantasy and a healthy dose of sexual tension. A must read for fans of Sookie Stackhouse and similar books and series."  -Literary Fatale

"If you are new to Zoe Winters' paranormal romance writing, then you are in for a treat. Romance fans will love the interaction between the three aspiring couples in this series. Horror fiction fans will be pleased at the intricate details that went into building this world of vampires, werewolves, dark sorcerers, and demons." -M.T. Murphy

"These three stories were very good paranormal romances. There is some steam but not heavy or overly graphic. There is a bit of suspense, but all three have happily ever after endings. I'm definitely interested in reading more books by this author." -J. Sasse

"All in all, Blood Lust is a full plate for any Paranormal Romance lover out there! The romance is great, but it never overshadows the story, I think Zoe did a great job in balancing that out and I can't wait for more books from her!" -Larissa's Bookish Life

"I've not really gotten into the "vampire craze" that seems to be filling the book world - until now. Blood Lust was a little out of my comfort zone but that didn't stop me from reading the book in full. All three parts of the anthology were good alone, but Zoe did a great job of weaving them together. Blood Lust is well written and worth more than what I paid for it. Thank you Zoe for a good read." -JCPhelps

If your ex is the Prince of Greed, you’d better be ready to raise Hell.

Charlie Henderson is living a lie. Her real name is Muse, she's half demon, and her attempt at a normal life is about to go up in smoke. 

After a assassin tries to kill her, leaving a trail of destruction in his wake, Muse must return to the one man she hoped never to see again and ask for help. The Prince of Greed isn’t known for his charity. His price is high, and the cost could tear her apart.
