Orphaned and forced to live under the cruel eye of her stepmother, Saskia spends her days and most of her nights sewing gowns for rich dragonesses to wear to balls she will never see. When a chance encounter brings her into contact with the handsome Callan, Duke and cousin to the Queen, she thinks nothing of it. After all, what royal duke would want a woman with a broken, mad dragon?
But when the otherworldly intervenes, Saskia gets her chance to go to the ball, and dance with the man of her dreams…
Tiny, delicate and utterly beautiful… but where has he seen her before?
A royal duke by birth, and a black, Callan’s life has been dictated since the moment he was born. Ordered by his cousin, the queen, to pick a bride at the ball or she’ll pick for him, he’s between a rock and a hard place. Until he sees her. The tiny woman in the purple gown runs him a merry chase over the ballroom but one look and he’s determined. She will be his.
And she is, for the briefest of moments before his duty intervenes and he has to return a wayward youth to his father before he gets himself into a lifetime of trouble. When he returns his delicate princess is gone, leaving behind a single shoe…
Furious, Callan launches a hunt for his love…one that leads to a woman who is not who she pretends to be, a raid on a brothel and a fight with a troll. Can he persuade his delicate princess she’s not broken, but that she’s the perfect dragoness for him?

She’s made the list, and checked it twice…
Cadeyra the White has finally found her soulmate in Sawyer Stone. The guests are invited, the chapel prepared for the Dragon Queen’s Christmas Wedding, because sometimes the best Christmas presents aren’t under the tree.
As the most powerful werewolf in the city, Reena has to pick a man during the annual choosing and her usual plan just isn't going to cut it this year. This time she really does have to make a choice. Then a handsome alpha asks her for a dance, obviously unaware who she is, and all bets are off...
But her mystery alpha proves more than a pretty face. For one, Archer isn’t a wolf, or he wasn’t until he was infected a few days. Undergoing conversion as an adult is a risky business, especially for a natural alpha, and Reena knows only one way to bring him back from the madness. Her.
But the conversion doesn’t go as planned. Her hot as hell wolf can’t shift properly, and without it, he’s seen as ‘less’ in Lycan society. As such, the Council of Alphas have decided to use his continued presence in Reena’s bed as an excuse to remove her from power. Gearing up for a fight, Reena needs all her wits about her to deal with the council. Until Archer’s shifting problem is revealed as less of a problem, and more of a case of mistaken identity…
He’ll do anything to save his family… even the unthinkable.
Archer isn't a wolf, but he'll be the lamb to the slaughter if it means his younger brother isn't served up on a silver platter to some decrepit old she-wolf. Trouble is, if Seth doesn't go, someone else does... And only Archer is crazy enough to walk into the Mistress's den and pretend to be a wolf...
But there’s wrong with him… and since he can't remember his own name, he's got no idea what it is. All he knows is the fury that inhabits his skin. A fury that is only eased by the little female whose voice and scent soothes the beast inside him. Now if he can just convince her to come closer, maybe he can make her his, and tame the darkness in his blood….
Can Reena face down a couple, a werewolf pack without an alpha, and a hot as hell, definitely NOT wolf intent on making her his as soon as possible.

What she doesn't expect is the big male with the midnight eyes who rescues her, taking her home thinking she's a pet bird, or her reaction to his gentle touch and the scent of his dragon. After so many years, can she trust another... and reveal the truth about herself in the process?

And they don't come more in need than the little bird Damian discovers huddled in a box on his latest mission. A black dragon, he's responsible for the protection of dragonkind and by extension, all shifters, and he hates those who trade in paranormal artefacts with a passion.
He's never taken any of them home, but the wide, golden eyes of the little bird hit him on a soul-deep level. The need to care for her and nurse her back to health overwhelm both him and his dragon, a need he doesn't understand until he finds a naked woman in his kitchen.

Sergeant Cat Moore has a little problem. Well, actually a big problem... When her base is attacked and boarded by an alien war group, she finds herself in the sights of their leader, Tarrick, a Latharian war-commander. Their captors might be ripped, hot warriors looking for that one special woman, but the women of Sentinel Five have this little thing against being slaves.

Because her sexy alien has a thing about making sure her every need is met and has some very inventive ways of doing so. Until she gives him a bad case of mating marks around his wrist, and all bets are off.
Why? Because her sexy alien lover left one thing out when he introduced himself… Like the fact he’s a freaking alien prince…
