 Hotshot LA lawyer Chase Baron doesn't know whether to kiss or throttle his best friend's little sister. She's a spoiled, unpredictable brat, and she drives this alpha wolf shifter howling mad. The last thing he wants is a chaotic witch disrupting his orderly life. When magic frees him of all his inhibitions, his wolf claims his one true mate. Once the claiming is over, however, he's left mired in resentment over his lover's manipulation.

 

Arabia Jensen doesn't mean to cause trouble. It's her natural-born talent as a raven shifter. She casts a Heart's Desire spell intended to capture the attention of a certain stubborn werewolf. But after the magic takes hold, she's the one who loses control. Arabia finds more than just her hands full with a big bad wolf who's horny and lookin' for love.

 

Once the pandemonium fades, Arabia's antics land her in prison. Chase is the only attorney willing to take her case, but even he thinks she's guilty. What's a woman to do when the man she loves believes she's committed crimes of the heart?

 About the Heart's Desired Mate Series:

Tried and true, the Heart's Desire spell is a love charm that requires a deft hand and a pure heart. The witch casting the spell has a mixing mishap, however, and the spell spirals out of control, wreaking havoc through the isolated Sierra Nevada town of Stillwater, California. A storm of sensual shenanigans sweeps up everyone in its path, supernatural and human alike, in a frenzied free-for-all that lasts until dawn. It's more than just hex appeal. It's a recipe for true love when sassy heroines and alpha heroes undergo a trial by love-in to discover their one true mate.

Fear the reckoning of those you have wronged.

Notorious Hunter King Jake Barrett lives his life according to a warrior’s creed. His forces are hard-pressed, outnumbered, and outgunned. Malevolent gods threaten his six-year-old son. In desperation, he extends his hand to his ancient friend and foe for help.


Valkyrie Victoria Storm follows the path Odin laid out, but each step carries the priestess farther from Freya’s favor. She works to unify the werewolf tribes and forge an alliance with the hunters. Trouble brews on the home front. The dominant males in her pack are at each other’s throats. A killer in her territory is skinning wolves; the evidence points to one of Odin’s worshipers.


Loki hides among mortal men, a shadow of his greater glory. Under the command of the Necromancer, the Trickster’s undead army grows ever more powerful. He counts the days until he collects on what he is owed, but he harbors more regret than satisfaction. His wolf children speak his name with derision. Those he seeks to help recoil from him. Justice for the God of Lies means the end of all life. Loki’s warnings fall on deaf ears but he knows—

Fate shelters the ember that will spark the fire. Reckoning for the day when the world burns.

Discover this exciting Norse mythology urban fantasy series where the modern crosses over with mysticism in a setting similar to Neil Gaiman's American Gods or Jim Butcher's Dresden Files. Science & technology clash with sword & sorcery in action-filled plots replete with magical creatures: gods & goddesses, shapeshifters, ghosts, elves, vampires, and werewolves.

Important note for readers: This book is an adult urban fantasy set on an alternative modern earth ruled by the Norse gods and goddesses. It contains violence, swearing, and sexual themes. The romance in this series is "slow burn", and there is no sex in this particular novel. There is no cliffhanger ending.

Norse & Viking Mythology, Paranormal & Urban Fantasy

Love between wolf shifters and hunters is forbidden for good reasons, but Valkyrie Victoria Storm never imagined her star-crossed affair would ignite a war. With the thirty-year alliance between their peoples shattered and hundreds dead, blame falls squarely on her. Forced to atone for her mistakes, she leads her ragtag pack of werewolves to what should be safe haven. Homeless, hungry, and hunted, it’s their last hope.

The Hunter King ruins Victoria’s plans when he arrives in town. She and her pack should run, but the goddess Freya has other ideas. Children are missing. Victoria is tasked with joining the Hunter—her enemy—to stage a rescue. Working together will either heal the rift between wolf shifters and Hunters or force them to tread separate paths forever. 

 

 

PRAISE FOR THE LOKI'S WOLVES / RAGNAROK: DOOM OF THE GODS SERIES:

This book is a great time!  It combines all the best elements of the paranormal with aspine-chilling mystery.  Although short, it is a well-told story full of twists and turns.  The author has a light easy-going touch with a descriptive style that draws the reader into the action. Although a little light on the shape-shifting aspect of the characters, the story explores other aspects of the supernatural, drawing inspiration from Viking mythology.  This use of mythology in a modern way opens up a plethora of new ideas for the genre.  "Valkyrie's Vengeance" is a niceeasy read, perfect for unwinding after work or on a Sunday afternoon.

A New York Times bestseller!

#1 New York Times bestselling author Sherrilyn Kenyon brings us back to the astonishing world of the Dark-Hunters in Stygian, with a hero misunderstood by many...but most of all by himself.

Born before man recorded time, I lived for thousands of years believing myself to be something I’m not.

Someone I’m not.

Lied to and betrayed by gods, Daimons and Dark-Hunters, I’ve struggled to find my way in a world where I’ve been cursed since the moment I was prematurely ripped from my mother and planted into the womb of an innocent woman who thought me her son.

Trained as a slayer and predator, I learned to fit in and stay low. To become a tool for evil. Until I was sent to kill the one woman I couldn’t. My hesitation cost her her life.

Or so I thought. In an act of betrayal that makes all the others pale in comparison, I’ve learned that this world is an illusion and that my Phoebe still lives.

Now I will have to travel into the very pits of Hades to try and save her, even as everyone around me attempts to steal what little soul I have left. There’s only one person at my back and I’m not sure I can trust her either, for she was born of an enemy race. Yet sometimes the road to redemption is one that singes us to our very core. And if I fail to find the answers I need to save Phoebe, more than just my wife will die.

We will lose the world. Both human and Daimon.

ER Nurse Victoria Storm anticipates a joyous Winter Nights ceremony with her wolf-shifter pack, but a determined hunter upsets all her plans. Daniel Barrett wants her help because he suspects a ghost is behind his friend’s disappearance. As a pagan priestess and spirit-speaker, she can discover things he can’t. He’s as sexy as he is persistent–she finds him impossible to refuse. Throw in a trip to a remote Arizona town, a haunted hotel, and a lost gold mine, and their evening is about to get interesting.

Framed for her lover's murder...

Victoria Storm, Alpha of the Storm Pack, leads her beleaguered family of wolf-shifters in a desperate flight from Odin's mortal followers. Her worst enemy, a rogue hunter, won't stop until his brother's death is avenged and he'll kill anyone who gets in his way. Following Freya's prophecy, Victoria seeks sanctuary in a small town high in the secluded Sierra Nevada Mountains.


In Sierra Pines, nothing is as it seems.

Victoria considers a marriage of convenience with Arik Koenig, a powerful lawyer with a Loki-like gift for twisting the truth to his advantage. The more she learns of his mysterious past, the greater her mistrust. With the fate of her pack on the line, Victoria undertakes an investigation into the murder of Arik's wife. When her prying uncovers layers of lies and deception, a blizzard of Ragnarök proportions threatens to consume them all.

After losing her lover and then her mate, Victoria Storm builds a new life in Sierra Pines, California. When the Norse Fates predict the she-wolf will destroy the world to save her unborn child, her duties as Freya’s priestess conflict with her responsibilities as Odin’s Valkyrie.


Sawyer Barrett has hunted Victoria so passionately, he doesn’t know whether he loves or hates her. Desperate to end the fighting, he will take chances with everything—except his heart. This hunter harbors a deadly secret he can’t reveal without risking the tentative ceasefire and his father’s continued disapproval.


Men revere him; monsters fear him. 

Jake Barrett—the notorious Hunter King—values loyalty to family above all else. When he believes his eldest son was murdered by a wolf ally, he releases a chain reaction of violent destruction that claims the lives of both wolves and hunters. 


An ancient vampire plots the destruction of wolves and hunters alike. If the embittered rivalry doesn’t end quickly, there is no hope for the Hunters, Victoria’s pack, or the mortal world.
