M.J. Scott
Monsters used to be just her day job. Now they’re her life.

 

Reluctant werewolf Ashley Keenan thought she’d faced her demons when she brought down McCallister Tate, the vampire who killed her family. She’s building a future with her werewolf fiancé, FBI Agent Daniel Gibson, but not everything is smooth sailing. For one thing, she still owes a debt to the dangerous vampire who controls Seattle. And, for another, she knows that Tate didn’t work alone … and his allies might not be done with her.

 

Then a vicious attack leaves her best friend infected with an aggressive new strain of vampirism and Ash and Dan are sucked into the desperate fight to save her and to stop a plague of vampires overrunning humanity. A plague manufactured by the man who was helping Tate. When Dr. Smith and his vampire allies decide that Ashley’s family secrets might hold the key to making their new vampires unstoppable—and that the only way to get to those secrets is through Ash herself—the fight turns deadly.

 

To save herself, her friend, and maybe even the world, Ash has to embrace her werewolf abilities, call on some dangerous allies, and take a walk on the dark side…

M.J. Scott
PRAISE FOR M.J. SCOTT'S FOUR ARTS SERIES
Nominated for Best Paranormal Romance in the 2016 RITA® Awards. “Scott (the Half-Light City series) opens her Four Arts fantasy series with the portrait of a young woman who’s thrust into the center of dangerous political machinations… Romance fans will enjoy the growing relationship between Cameron and Sophie, but the story’s real strength lies in the web of intrigue Scott creates around her characters.” 
—Publishers Weekly

“Fans of high fantasy and court politics will enjoy The Shattered Court. Sophie is such a great heroine...”
—RT Book Reviews
DESCRIPTION: THE FORBIDDEN HEIR
She ran to save her life. Now what . . .
Lady Sophia Mackenzie has left almost everything behind. Her country. Her family. Her trust in the queen she suspects tried to kill her. All she has left is her own fledgling magic and her new husband, Cameron. But having fled Anglion to stay alive, she now has to learn how to face the dangers and temptations of Illvya, a land where the magic they practice is everything she’s been raised to fear.
To those who rule Illvya—the mages with their demon familiars and the parliament—having an unbound royal witch like Sophie in their midst is to some an unparalleled opportunity and to others an unbearable threat. As factions form around them, Sophia and Cameron struggle to navigate the intrigues and repercussions of their flight from Anglion. Illvya seeks to control them and Anglion may well still be trying to kill them. As their choices close in around them and Sophia begins to discover the potential of her powers, their bond—both magical and emotional—is pushed to the limit. In the end, in order to survive, Sophia will have to decide between loyalty and destiny and hope the price of her choice is one she can bear to pay . . .
