From their top-secret headquarters... Three women with brains, brawn, beauty--and guns--are ready for anything...but love.

Three new, connected stories by authors Doranna Durgin, Virginia Kantra and Meredith Fletcher

Framed for murder and running from the CIA, sniper Bethany Riggs could trust no one, not even dashing British spy Jason Chandler. A born charmer, and disturbingly sexy, Jason might be the one man who can help her...or will he break her heart?

Undercover stuntwoman Kylee Swain could handle action--and more than the Hollywood kind. Until she hit a snag: Australian mercenary Mick Stone. Now she's got to survive the explosive heat of gunfire...and passion.

Beneath Victoria Grayson's pretty smile lay steely determination--and the ability to hack any computer in the world. She will take down the enemy--even if that means stepping on the boot-clad toes of DEA agent Bishop Tyler...and making him love it.

About the author

The Wolverine’s Daughter is hard-tempered by her struggle to survive in the hostile Keturan mountains; she knows nothing of the Outlands, or of her father...or of the curse behind her puzzling clumsiness. But she’s about to find out what it means to visit those Outlands...and they’re about to find out what it means to have her.

"When a sword and sorcery book begins with humor, it's fairly well guaranteed to be an excellent read.... This book whips along with impressive fight choreography, excellent background descriptions, and fascinating plotlines."
--Kliatt

Kelyn of Ketura.

Daughter of a legendary warrior who left the mountains before she was born. Brave. Strong. Tempered by her struggle to survive in the hostile, craggy Keturan mountains. And plagued by moments of enormous and puzzling clumsiness.

"Find your father," the local wisewoman tells her. "To find your true self, find the Wolverine."

Angered by his abandonment, Kelyn doesn't care about her father--but the lure of adventure in the Out Lands calls to her, just as it called to the Wolverine before her, and she accepts the challenge.

New languages, new weapons. Magic. Witch hunts. The treacheries of civilization. She doesn't know just how much of a challenge it'll be.
~~~

"With this new book, Doranna Durgin ventures into classic sword & sorcery -- and turns the subgenre upside down..... I like Kelyn, who could kick Red Sonya's steel bikini-clad butt from introduction to epilogue. Fantasy fans in general will love this book, but it has extra appeal for feminists and for warriors of the female persuasion."
--Hypatia's Hoard 

Dun Lady’s Jess: all woman, all heart…all horse. Courier mount Dun Lady's Jess accepts the hand of only one man: Carey of Anfeald. Together they race across rugged territories with the spell manuscripts no one else dares to carry, handling secrets with the potential to destroy worlds.

That is, until a treacherous wizard rips Lady and Carey apart in mid-run, tossing them across realities and turning Lady into Jess—a woman of fiery equine spirit and unyielding intent.

But Jess and Carey weren’t the only ones to tumble between worlds, and they aren’t the only ones looking for a way back. They definitely aren’t the only ones who want that deadly spell manuscript. And ultimately, only Jess—separated from the one person she trusts, flung into a new human form and culture—has the means to bring two worlds together and stop a wizard run amuck.

That is, if anyone can…

 "....Dun Lady's Jess is unique. Durgin has created a character who is utterly believable as both horse and horse-in-human-body. The setup is brilliant: the magic that causes the transformation is not in the horse, but external, and the creature that is Dun Lady's Jess must adapt, must find an identity that works in both paradigms. Humans who encounter her, in either body, must also adapt to the reality that created her and that she represents. She cannot be, any longer, just another mare...she cannot be, ever, just another woman...."
--Excerpt from Elizabeth Moon's Forward for Dun Lady's Jess


"A thrill ride with a fantasy twist, neatly done by a knowledgeable author - short, sweet, and paced at a gallop, Dun Lady's Jess can't help but to win you over."
--Janny Wurts




"Horses, heroics, and magic--a great combination! I thoroughly enjoyed reading Dun Lady's Jess, a spirited and daring novel. I couldn't put it down."
--Kristen Britain, author of the Green Rider series


"Dun Lady's Jess is a wonderful read for those who are horse fans and those who are just plain fantasy fans or fans of great writing."
--Josepha Sherman, bestselling author/editor


"Dun Lady's Jess is everything a great fantasy ought to be: Exciting, moving, and utterly original. Doranna Durgin has spun a marvelous tale, set it in a world that feels as real as our own, and populated that world with characters who will stay with you long after you read the final page. An excellent book, which I highly recommend."
--David Coe, author of Winds of the Forelands & the LonTobyn Chronicle


"Jess is a tale of wonderfully diverse and riveting characters embroiled in extraordinary events, told with a deftness and care few authors can achieve. Once you begin, you won't be able to put it down until you know what happens -- and then you'll wish it never stopped. I highly recommend it."
--Diana Pharoah Francis, author of Path of Blood


"Dun Lady's Jess is an adventure story with heart. It's a unique idea, imaginatively explored. The characters are charming, and humanly flawed. The accurate equestrian touches are a pleasure to encounter, and Jess' reactions, particularly while she's still getting her feet under her, are surprisingly yet completely believable. Doranna Durgin offers the reader an unusual viewpoint of impressive versimilitude."
--Vonda McIntyre, Nebula and Hugo Award-winning author of The Moon and the Sun


"Durgin never fails to entertain with solid characters, good action, well-conceived plots, compelling narrative -- and her expert background in horses always provides a real -- and realistic! -- treat for readers. Jess is one of the most complex and likeable characters in fantasy fiction."
--Jennifer Roberson, author of the Karavans and Sword Dancer series

Le chasseur des ténèbres - Tome 1
Surgi de l'ombre, l'homme s'avance vers elle avec la souplesse d'un félin et, de sa voix de basse, la conjure d'accepter sa protection... Pourtant, en dépit des dangers dont elle se sent entourée, Meghan refuse de le suivre et réprime avec peine sa colère. Comment ose-t-il se présenter devant elle ? Comment prétend-il la protéger, alors que lui et ceux de son clan ont laissé sa mère se faire tuer en dérobant aux forces du mal un manuscrit aux pouvoirs maléfiques ? D'autant que rien, absolument rien ne lui garantit que cet homme aux yeux d'or ne poursuit pas le même but que ses ennemis : découvrir grâce à elle le lieu secret où sa mère, avant de mourir, a dissimulé le précieux grimoire...

L'appel du crépuscule - Tome 2
Debout devant la demeure de Joe Ryan, Lyn songe à la mission dont ses chefs l'ont chargée : gagner la confiance de cet homme, et prouver qu'il a tué son coéquipier et trahi son clan - leur clan - pour rejoindre les forces du mal. Mais brusquement la porte s'ouvre, et Lyn découvre le visage de celui qu'elle est venue confondre. Impressionnant, puissant, il la domine de sa haute taille et la scrute de son regard clair. Un regard auquel Lyn, troublée, tente tant bien que mal de se soustraire. Car un sentiment étrange vient de naître en elle, une pulsion incompréhensible et terriblement dangereuse qui la pousse vers Ryan et risque de faire d'elle sa proie...

Dans les pas du loup - Tome 3

Mais bientôt elle chasse l'espoir fou qui grandissait en elle, pour revenir à la réalité crue de sa destinée brisée : elle n'est qu'une louve sauvage, enlevée à sa meute par un sorcier malfaisant. Une créature hybride, mi-bête mi-humaine, née dans un laboratoire et dressée pour tuer... Et même si Nick vient à bout de son tortionnaire, leurs routes se sépareront bientôt. Car sa place est loin d'ici, auprès de sa meute, et jamais elle ne sera capable, comme Nick, de vivre dans le monde des humains, cruel et corrompu...

Hunter Agency operatives Kimmer Reed and Rio Carlsen, overseas and cut off from the agency on their first assignment together, face an old enemy who wants it all: political terrorism, theft--and revenge. Not only that, she knows just how to get it--by turning their greatest strength into their greatest weakness: their love for one another.
~~~

Kimmer Reed is a Hunter Agency operative, a street foundling escaped from an abusive family and raised to be code-name Chimera--a fierce, savvy loner with a natural gift for reading people. Now on her first assignment with the one man she trusts--the one man she can't read--she finds herself overseas in the Basque countryside, framed for the theft of the very antiquity she has been sent to guard and doubting her ability to work with a partner at all--never mind the man she loves.

Rio Carlsen, former CIA field officer who left the agency with scars both physical and emotional, joins Hunter Agency field operations with reservations--and only because his partner is Kimmer. Now he's caught in the schemes of a woman from Kimmer's past. Political terrorism, antiquities theft, and revenge--this woman wants it all, and she's on her way to getting it.

Framed, cut off from the agency, and tangled in Basque Nationalist splinter terrorist groups, the biggest challenge Kimmer and Rio face is coming to terms with their pasts and with each other--so they can live through the day on the way to saving it.
