Taken from her beloved family and woods, Aria’s biggest fear isn’t death... it’s becoming a blood slave for a member of the vampire race.


No matter her fate, she must keep her identity hidden from the monsters imprisoning her. She’s already branded a member of the rebellion, but the vampires can never learn the truth of her involvement.


Hoping for death, Aria’s world turns upside down when Braith steps forward to claim her. The powerful vampire delays her execution, but it’s only a matter of time before he destroys her.


Aria’s determination to hate Braith only increases when she learns he’s a member of the royal family responsible for reducing humans to nothing more than servants and slaves. However, his strange kindness and unexpected gentleness slowly make her realize he’s more than just a monster.


Torn between her loyalties to the rebellion, and a growing love for her greatest enemy, Aria must decide between everything she’s ever known and a love she never dreamed of finding.

Book 1, Captured.   

Captured, taken from her beloved family and woods, Aria’s biggest fear is not the imminent death facing her, but that she will be chosen as a blood slave for a member of the ruling vampire race. Aria’s world is turned upside down when a vampire named Braith steps forward to claim her. He delays her execution, but Aria knows it’s only a matter of time before he drains her, and destroys her. Aria is determined to hate the prince, but his strange kindness and surprising gentleness astonish her. Torn between her loyalties to the rebellion, and her growing love for her greatest enemy, Aria struggles to decide between everything she has ever known and a love she never dreamed of finding.

Book 2, Renegade.

Though she is free of the palace, rescued from her position as a blood slave, Aria is haunted by the memories of Braith, the prince that betrayed her and shattered her heart. Every day is a struggle to get through, and the only solace she can find is with Max, her best friend, and fellow captive. Aria slowly begins to salvage the broken parts of her wounded spirit by throwing herself into the wonder of the woods she had so greatly missed. Her world is thrown into a tailspin again though when a marauding group of vampires destroy the caves she had found temporary shelter in. Scattered about the forest, seeking to stay hidden and find her family, Aria is stunned when Braith, the monster that savaged her heart, reappears. 

Book 3, Refugee.

Whispers, rumors, and horror stories abound about The Barrens and the strange creatures that lurk within them. Determined to find the remaining vampires that stood against his father in the war, Braith knows that it’s dangerous to enter the inhospitable land, but that they must if they are to have a chance at gaining allies to help overthrow the king.

Aria is fearful of entering into the land she’s heard nothing but cautionary tales about, but she’s determined to help Braith locate the vampires that may help them with their cause. She is fascinated and amazed by the world they uncover within. However, the more immersed they become in a world, the more she realizes that it won’t be the war or even the king that will eventually tear her and Braith apart. It will be her.  

Book 4, Salvation.

Imprisoned by Caleb and at the mercy of the king, Aria is determined not to let them break her.

Tormented by the loss of Aria, Braith is forced to choose between his need to rescue her, and the impending rebel war he’s been chosen to lead. Fighting against the darkness which threatens to drag him into its tempting depths, Braith struggles not to become the one thing he hates the most, his father.      

Faced with their separate challenges, Aria and Braith must come to terms with who they are, what they want, and the likelihood that they can never be together as the inevitable war looms on the horizon. A war that all of them will fight but not all of them will survive. 

Book 5, Redemption.

A year has passed since the war against Jack’s father. Having left the palace behind to ensure that the outer towns are obeying the new laws, Jack struggles to come to terms with the grief that drove him from the palace in the first place. That is until he encounters Hannah. 

Growing up in the small town of Chippman, Hannah had long ago accepted the fact that she would never leave. When Jack walks into her life, she quickly realizes that not everything is what she’d believed it to be. Knowing that Jack will reject her if he learns the truth about her, Hannah struggles to fight her growing attraction to him. For though the town of Chippman seems normal, its residents harbor secrets that they’ve taken great pains to keep hidden.

Free of the palace, Aria is still tormented by memories of Braith… the vampire prince who shattered her heart.


Her only solace from the anguish is with Max, her best friend, and fellow blood slave. Just as Aria begins to salvage the broken pieces of her wounded spirit, a marauding group of vampires raid the caves where the rebels are temporarily sheltered.


With the security of the caves gone, and vampires hunting them, Aria tries to stay hidden while she searches for her family. She isn’t expecting to come face to face with Braith.


Haunted by Aria’s betrayal, Braith spent the past months becoming a monster. When he learns she was spotted in the woods, he tries to stay away, but finds himself drawn to the rebel who stole his heart.


Divided between their loyalties and their hearts, will their love be enough to overcome their past, or will their differences tear them apart forever?

A year has passed since the war against Jack’s father freed the humans from their roles as servants to the vampire race.


Having left the palace to ensure the outer towns are obeying the new laws, Jack struggles to come to terms with his haunting memories of the war. He’s content to lose himself in the obscurity of the isolated lands… until he encounters Hannah.


Hannah long ago accepted she would never leave the small town of Chippman. When Jack walks into her life, she can’t deny her attraction to him. However, afraid Jack will reject her if he learns the truth, Hannah is determined to keep her distance from him.


On the outside, Chippman appears normal, but its residents harbor secrets they’re determined to hide—secrets that force the town to live under the rule of a vampire who could tear Jack and Hannah apart forever.
