From New York Times bestselling author Maggie Shayne comes the final novel in her thrilling new trilogy, THE PORTAL

As an ancient king’s favorite harem slave, Lilia committed the worst of all possible crimes: loving another man. When the king discovered her treason, her lover was sentenced to lose his soul and linger in eternal imprisonment, and Lilia herself was executed alongside her sisters. While they reincarnated through countless lifetimes, she lingered alone between worlds for thousands of years, waiting for the moment to rescue her beloved Demetrius.

Now that moment has come. Demetrius has broken free, but without his soul and in the thrall of the same high priest who betrayed them so long ago; he has become a ravaging demon, devoting himself solely to pleasure and power. Somehow Lilia must convince him to reclaim his humanity, to abandon the enemy tempting him to give in to his cruel desires—or her life will be lost alongside his, both of them condemned to eternal damnation, eternal isolation, their love lost one final and irrevocable time.

Originally published in THRILLER (2006),edited by #1 New York Times bestselling author James Patterson.



Two New York Times bestselling writers merge their characters and worlds in “The Portal.” John Lescroart revisits the chaos of his legal thriller, Guilt, while M. J. Rose investigates Dr. Morgan Snow from The Halo Effect for a combination that highlights the best of both of their works.

Dr. Snow learns during her latest therapy session with Lucy Delrey that Lucy feels no emotion whatsoever when she destroys someone. Snow does not know whether to believe her or not, since this seems dramatically out of character for her client. She knows that Lucy is searching for someone from her childhood and wonders if finding him will help her patient…or make things much worse. When Lucy finally tracks him down, she has a plan that he clearly is not expecting.

Book 6 in Maggie Shayne's Bestselling Wings in the Night Series
THEIRS IS THE ULTIMATE IN FORBIDDEN LOVE.
Jaded by her many years of immortality, Sarafina lives for pleasure and avoids any thought of love, with its inevitable decline into betrayal and pain. Her only amusement comes from controlling those around her, mortals in thrall to her after a mere taste of her blood. She is convinced she can break any man—until she meets Willem Stone.
Willem is as strong-willed as his name implies and more vibrantly alive than any man Sarafina has ever met. Their battle of wills leads to a desire so powerful it threatens to overturn everything she thinks she knows about herself. Forced to work with him to save Amber Lily, the only child in all of history born to a vampire, she can feel the wall around her heart beginning to fall.But Willem is mortal and always will be, lacking the Belladonna Antigen that would allow Sarafina to turn him, to share with him her own dark immortality. And now the woman who will live forever finds herself well and truly doomed, irrevocably bound by love to a man who must one day die.
