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 . . .

From #1 New York Times bestselling author V.E. Schwab

"Addictive and immersive, A Gathering of Shadows cements this series as a must-read." —Entertainment Weekly, grade A

Four months have passed since the shadow stone fell into Kell's possession. Four months since his path crossed with Delilah Bard. Four months since Rhy was wounded and the Dane twins fell, and the stone was cast with Holland's dying body through the rift, and into Black London.

In many ways, things have almost returned to normal, though Rhy is more sober, and Kell is now plagued by his guilt. Restless, and having given up smuggling, Kell is visited by dreams of ominous magical events, waking only to think of Lila, who disappeared from the docks like she always meant to do. As Red London finalizes preparations for the Element Games-an extravagant international competition of magic, meant to entertain and keep healthy the ties between neighboring countries-a certain pirate ship draws closer, carrying old friends back into port.

But while Red London is caught up in the pageantry and thrills of the Games, another London is coming back to life, and those who were thought to be forever gone have returned. After all, a shadow that was gone in the night reappears in the morning, and so it seems Black London has risen again-and so to keep magic's balance, another London must fall...in V.E. Schwab's A Gathering of Shadows.

Ashley Keenan thought she'd found the one in Daniel Gibson. That they were going to be in love for a lifetime. But it only takes a moment to change forever. 

The Day You Went Away is a short story prequel to The Wolf Within, the first book in my urban fantasy series, The Wild Side. The Wolf Within. It's short (about 8k). It's the story of what happened in the first stage of the romance between the hero and heroine of The Wolf Within before that book starts. While Ash and Dan have some ups and downs in this story (that's what happens when one of a couple becomes a werewolf), I promise they'll get their happily ever after in the end!

“The story’s real strength lies in the web of intrigue Scott creates around her characters.” Publisher’s Weekly

Vampires, werewolves, warring couples. And that’s just the day job.

Ashley Keenan just wants a normal life but she lives in a world that’s left normal behind. If she keeps her head down and doesn’t annoy any of her supernatural clients she figures everything will be okay. Until the day that FBI Agent Daniel Gibson, ex-lover, now werewolf, and the man she’s never quite forgotten walks back into her life.

Dan’s back because the vampire who murdered her family is coming after her. Worse, that the FBI needs Ash’s help to stop him. That means facing every nightmare from her past and spending every day with Dan, which is a whole other kind of nightmare when Ash knows she can never date a supernatural.

It’s a fight to guard her heart and her life. And to survive she might have to learn to love her inner monster…
