What happens when the half-breed of the species suddenly becomes the savior?


There’s nothing Fae despise more than the half-breed called Halven, a race of lesser beings produced by the mating of a Fae and a human. Oops.


Only now those Halven are looking more useful each day, because a virus that kills immortals has been unleashed in Faery, and every life is at stake. Except for the Halven living on Earth. One Halven in particular.


A mere slip of a girl named Elena Rosales descended from a line of Fae known for their powerful magic, and she’ll come into her ability soon. An ability that could destroy the evil virus with a swish of her fingertips. And a little help from her powerful Fae mentors. Who push her and force her to grow her magic or risk the lives of those of whom she cares. Including her overgrown neighbor who’s gotten into the nasty habit of butting in where he is not wanted.


If somewhere along the line Elena discovers the reason she holds so much power? … Well, that’s to be considered another day. After all, Elena cannot make a stake to the throne if she doesn’t survive. And it’s deadly entering Faery as a half-breed.


A captivating twist on forbidden love with unique world building, seductive romance, and a deadly noble race for dominance that will make your heart pound. Grab it today!

After my last cheating ex, I’ve sworn off men. Until Lewis comes along and steals my breath and my good sense.


I’ve never been one to lust after guys. My mother’s revolving door of relationships doused any propensity I might have had long ago. But Lewis is six and a half feet of rugged mountain man, and he’s…eye-catching. Sexy. Silently brooding in all the best ways.


The more time I spend with him, the more naughty thoughts I have of us together, and he’s not helping put a stop to it. It’s infuriating.


I’m fantasizing and lusting, and I can’t remember why I wanted to stay away to begin with.


It turns out, Lewis might be the one man I can't resist. 


But he carries his own relationship baggage. Baggage that could break me in ways no ex-boyfriend ever did.


This hot, romantic comedy will have you intermittently fanning yourself and laughing at Lewis’s sexy approach at convincing Gen they’re right for each other. Grab Mountain Man now!


EXCERPT:


He tugs down his shorts—and goes completely naked.


“Um?”


He glances up. “You can stay in your panties. I’m getting clean… What? I trust you not to grope me.” He grins.


“Hot, funny, infuriating and omg where can I get one please…” ~ Reviewer

Giving in to her attraction for a human could take down a kingdom…


Humans are beneath her kind.


But Fae princess Theodora Rainer must escape the Fae realm, or marry a man she despises.


California farmer Alex Rosales stays out of the trouble his older brother gets into—someone has to hang onto the farm. But when Alex finds Theodora hiding on his property, caution is nowhere in sight. She has the beauty of an angel, with deep secrets he can’t penetrate.


Alex breaks his own rules and invites Theodora to stay. But the proximity puts them both in danger, because Alex glimpses her heart—only to discover something powerful seeks to tear them apart.

The key to good is found in truth.

Genevieve may have left the circus behind in Oregon, but there is plenty of show still to come.

When she and Henry land in France, they are whisked away to Croix-Mare, the home of Henry’s grandfather, Nutesh, where they will prepare for a journey they never could’ve imagined. Now that they have all three AVRAKEDAVRA texts—Life, Death, and Memory—the books must be destroyed in the Undoing.

However, it’s not as simple as taking the books to their birthplace in Babylon and setting them alight. Genevieve and Henry must rely on unexpected allies as they embark on a harrowing global search to acquire pieces necessary to complete the Undoing. They’re offered cover and protection by La Vérité, the secret network of followers devoted to the message of the AVRAKEDAVRA, who, not surprisingly, are found under the big top—because no one does underground quite like the circus.

But loyalties among the magical community are fragile. Genevieve, still grieving the loss of her mother, now struggles to control the new AVRAKEDAVRA-bestowed gifts, and with mounting threats to her psyche and body, she clings mightily to the promise of a brighter future once this is over—if they can survive it. And Henry, broken by his father’s treachery but entranced by the heartwarming connection his family’s text has granted him, grapples with the fact that once they succeed in destroying the books, he’ll lose the only family he has left.

Together, our two young heirs will learn that when hope has abandoned us, the overwhelming love of friendship and family is all the magic we need.
Angels! Demons! Love! Snark! The first five books of the best-selling series are now in one ebook collection with extended editions...


ANGELBOUND (Book 1) - With Wedding Epilogue

Myla Lewis is a girl who loves two things: kicking ass and kicking ass. She’s not your every day quasi-demon, part-demon and part-human, girl. Myla lives for the days she gets to fight in Purgatory’s Arena. That is, until she meets Prince Lincoln, a super-sexy half-human and half-angel demon hunter. But what’s a quasi-demon girl to do when she falls for a royal demon killer? With a love with fighting for, Myla’s about to shake up the after-realms.


SCALA (Book 2) - With Extended Epilogue

Myla Lewis has a whole lot of trouble. A magical object called Lucifer’s Orb is threatening millions of souls, and it’s Myla’s job to make it go away. Plus, an old enemy is plotting to separate Myla from her Angelbound love, Prince Lincoln. But Myla and Lincoln are fighting back. Can they stop the Orb, save Purgatory’s souls, and stay together… Or will both the after-realms and their relationship be destroyed?


ACCA (Book 3)

In just one week, supernatural warrior Myla Lewis must discover enough evidence to send the evil House of Acca to prison … or she’ll end up in jail herself, along with her fiancé. Time to kick some ass.


THRAX (Book 4)

Myla Lewis has married Prince Lincoln, and now they're expecting! All the after-realms rejoice. Myla should be happy too, but she has a serious problem. The day after their honeymoon ended, Myla's real husband disappeared. The man who's sharing her bed is an imposter...


THE DARK LANDS (Book 5)

Myla's honorary older brother, Walker, goes missing. Now there's only one thing to do: kick ass, take names, and get Walker back without releasing the uber-evil Lucifer. This will get tricksy.

"I loved the romance in this novel… Maxon and Lianna were amazing characters, they were both so spunky and sassy. Plus, the action scenes and powers/abilities were truly epic. I loved it!" – The Not So Public Library


Prince Maxon may be twenty-two years old now, but he’s still haunted by his boyhood abduction and torture in Hell. To deal with his past, Maxon limits his present-day activities to killing demons and seducing women. No long-term relationships. No combat too dangerous. No problem, right? 


Wrong. 


Maxon’s life has stalled out. The old thrills aren't there anymore, either on the battlefield or in the bedroom. While staking out his next fight, Maxon meets what seems like just another girl after a good time. What he gets is a close encounter with Lianna, a lady warrior with ties to the mysterious elemental rulers called the monarkki. 


It’s love at first fight. 


Trouble is, Lianna’s running from a dark history of her own, and her elemental enemies are closing in. When Lianna gets taken, Maxon realizes that after years of wrong choices and dead ends, the right woman is worth risking it all...

He must make a choice. Betray his people, or lose her forever…


Humans are inferior. A scourge on the Fae and on the magic passed down to them by angels millennia ago. Keen won’t add to the half-breed problem that threatens his people’s existence by giving in to his attraction to Reese.


Reese can’t stand Keen. He criticizes her clothing, won’t answer a straight question, and is too handsome for her peace of mind. Her entire life, Reese has been pegged for a shallow, ditzy blond. She won’t take the stereotype from the arrogant Fae too. 


But when her life is threatened, Reese sees a side of Keen that is protective and dangerously seductive. And she wonders what else lies beneath the soldier’s hard exterior.


The Fae realm’s battle for power forces Keen to make a choice: betray his people, or lose Reese forever.

Eragon and his dragon, Saphira, have just saved the rebel state from destruction by the mighty forces of King Galbatorix, cruel ruler of the Empire.

But chaos and betrayal plague him at every turn, and nothing is what it seems. Before long, Eragon doesn’t know whom he can trust.
