Traded, as if she was no better than a piece of property. Gova Dov doesn’t know what to expect, but it can’t be as bad as the abuse she’d received at the hands of her last master. Gova has never known kindness like Muam. She soon learns she can trust him, but can he trust someone like her? He’s told her she’s free to leave, but does she want to go? Does he even want her to stay?
Muam Kai works hard to earn his living, and payment in flesh won’t exactly buy his next meal, but he can’t turn the abused girl away. However, he’s no slave owner.
When Gova’s past comes back for her, Muam vows that no matter what happens to them, they will always have each other. Always find each other. In this life or the next.
It's a dying promise that would prove to be a curse on them both.

When Ophelia's visions of a Victorian mystery reveal a secret that will change her future, she also discovers a love that was stronger than death. But is it too late to right the wrongs of the past?

Alexander knows how to charm his, and his wolf's, way into the grumpy Caddo Indian man's heart. But fate has other plans for them.
When war between the Asa Gods and the Fenrir Ulv threatens, which side will the damaged Haven choose? Will he find a way of trusting those, especially Alexander, who he feels betrayed him? Or will he trust the words of strangers, who promise to make his quest of seeing all shifters dead a reality?
Haven's Revenge is a story of an emotional journey for a whole community. It's about finding acceptance not just from others but in yourself.
Jericho, The Jinn Cycle - Book One
By Nini Church
Paranormal Romance, Adult
A casual glance over her shoulder revealed a tall male in all his gorgeous glory – roped with hard muscle and handsome beyond words.
Damn, she hoped he had been the one who undressed her!
Color stained her cheeks, but she didn’t turn away, making every effort to also imprint his image in her mind – standing tall and proud in that doorway, his big shadow cutting into the early morning light cascading behind him. He had a sexy, inviting smile with a hint of longing in his incredible intense blue eyes and a tilt to his strong chin demanding attention.
No doubt, he got attention as often as he wanted looking like that.
Truly a beautiful male – straight black hair dusted his broad muscular shoulders, framing his handsome face with thick black brows and true blue eyes. Those deep blue eyes cut to the chase – holding hers for a second or two – as heated flashes of pleasure ran up and down her body. Eyes drifting lower, she followed the line of his strong nose when his mouth captured her attention and she lingered there – his sensuous lips slightly parted and just waiting for her kisses.
Fantasy 101 – in the flesh.
A big male, he stood at least six foot five inches tall with a broad well muscled chest that narrowed at his waist, topping thighs like tree stumps. He wore black – jeans, silk shirt opened to reveal his muscled chest – right down to his big cowboy style boots. An aura of command and power clung to him, yet he appeared casually in control by the hard set of his shoulders and hands loose at his sides – all clear signs this male was a natural born leader.
Well aware she was mooning at him - it was hard not to notice his chiseled features had turned dark and brooding, telling he wasn’t happy to see her.
Shocked and surprised by her intense reaction, a shiver crawled up the back of her neck.
Jericho took note of her shiver and her wet hair, furious that she was out of bed when she clearly wasn't ready. Dark shadows beneath her eyes revealed the effort it had taken her to bathe and come downstairs. Her bare feet startled the hell out of him. “What are you doing up?” His sharp tone demanding an instant answer.
She sighed. Maybe it had all been a part of one of those crazy dreams she’d had, feeling the warmth of his voice tethering her. But, at this moment, he sure didn’t sound soft and soothing – his voice now hard and mean, but worse by far – commanding.
Glancing over her shoulder again – it was all too evident the big male in the doorway gave the orders around here. Right now, he appeared utterly cold – a male who never gave in to emotion – all male all the time.
Yet, he took her breath away - a pleasurable assault on all fronts – visually, mentally and physically.
Best eye candy ever.
CCX, The Jinn Cycle, Book 3
By Nini Church
CCX's attraction to her was unstoppable - undeniable.
Like a thunderbolt piercing his heart, it beat only for Stacey and had since the first time he saw her two years ago at the Annex Ball.
In those fleeting few seconds, Cal sensed their incredible connection - he knew it, felt it, lived it. After that, there was never any question.
Stacey belonged with him.
Usually, Cal was highly skilled at predicting male/female attractions. He had a keen eye for the subtle nuances - spotting a passionate connection a mile away. And, he could often predict the next step in attraction's delicate dance of maybe yes - maybe no.
Only that little skill sure didn't work for him. Cal was dead wrong and way out in left field with his heart’s desire. Uh, huh - he suspected with Stacey - he wasn't even on the same field.
Most certainly, he'd called this attraction wrong as Cal watched Stacey on the far side of the Council of Nine office smiling up at the powerful Ruler of the Vampires – the Chosen One - Roman Mangetti.
Cal stiffened when her shiny black hair splayed over the Vamp’s too muscular forearm as she leaned in close to playfully, but chastely peck Roman’s cheek.
Softly, Stacey squealed with laughter as Roman Mangetti hugged her too tightly.
Cal absorbed the fantastic sound of her laughter while ignoring Roman’s hands were still on her.
Oddly, her laughter calmed CCX - settled that cauldron of power inside him - unmanageable power once unleashed.
Stacey's long black hair cascaded around her strong shoulders and tumbled down her delicate back. An incredible set of piercing blue eyes - Aegean blue - and wide lush lips she always painted red made Cal's heart beat like a war drum.
From the first, Cal appreciated her classy looks and those piercing blue eyes that would lead him into a world of wonder. A world he never imagined he’d be part of.
Stacey was that world – she made that world possible for CCX.
