Stage manager Kira Franklin discovers a brass lamp in the back of a prop closet, complete with a gender-bending, wish-granting genie. Her first wish is easy—a job on a prestigious production of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet


Soon, though, Kira wonders how many wishes she'll need to succeed in that dream job. Her growing attraction to gorgeous actor Drew Myers rubs steady-going set designer John McRae the wrong way. And resolute John may be the only person who can rein in the play’s bizarre director. 


Can Kira find true love and salvage her professional reputation before she runs out of wishes?

Welcome to Vegas. Home of the Sin City Collectors. The job description is easy: Bring the offending supernatural in to the Boss and don’t ask any questions. 

Diesel Jones is a shifter with moon issues. Not the best combination to have. His dream of becoming a Sin City Collector had always lingered in the shadows because of his inability to control himself under a full moon. When Louie Fiore decides to test his merit, and gives him a job for the agency, Diesel jumps at the chance. But when he finds out he has to come up against an incubus, painful issues from the past resurface, and instead of bringing the sex demon in, he only has one thing on his mind—kill.

Sofia Cabrera is the new witch in town, and she’s more than anyone bargained for. She finds herself drawn to Diesel, the sexy shifter, the first moment she lays eyes on him. When she becomes the target of an organization of incubi, who take what they want without asking, Diesel comes to her aid unexpectedly. They end up fighting the threat together, and in the process, Sofia discovers she—and she alone—can tame his rages.

What’s Collected in Vegas, stays in Vegas...

Her latest assignment is to find one of the legendary elemental Four Talents, and she's determined to get in and out of Mexico as quickly as possible to avoid running into the man who nearly destroyed her life. But when the dangerous man from her past finds her, Cam must work with Marco Alvarez, a man she'd dismissed as a playboy, to prevent the the powerful magic of the Talents from falling into the wrong hands. She never expected the charming playboy to be a cunning warrior worthy of her heart...

But when a shadow-shifter shows up looking for Cam, Marco decides he needs to stick close to her to help her mission succeed. As he gets to know the strong-willed woman, he's torn between telling her the truth of his elemental magic and keeping the others who share his secret safe.

Book 1 in Kendall Grey’s JUST BREATHE paranormal romance series


Marine biologist Dr. Zoe Morgan is working her dream job: director of a whale tagging research project. She’s in her dream location: the beautiful beaches of Australia. But her sleep is plagued by nightmares—fiery hellscapes, hideous monsters, strange people … and the gorgeous man who rescues her from them. He might be a figment of her imagination, but he sure feels real.


What Zoe doesn’t know is that he’s not a fantasy. He’s a Sentinel charged with protecting humans from Fire Elementals, using his own blend of elemental magic. In the Dreaming, anyway. In the real world, he’s Gavin Cassidy, a sexy rock star who indulges in all the excesses that money and fame can buy. Gavin hasn’t been summoned to help anyone since his partner’s death, and he likes it that way—until he meets Zoe in her dreams. With Zoe, it’s impossible to stay detached, impossible to say no. 


But Dr. Morgan is more than just his muse—she’s the key to restoring order in the Dreaming. Gavin never believed he could fall for someone like Zoe, nor does he realize he may have to sacrifice the woman he loves to save his country.

“[I] enjoyed this steamy paranormal fantasy romance! Multilayered with likable characters and great chemistry, Inhale is not my usual genre but it pulled me in for a lap around the Dreaming. Looking forward to the next in the series!” —Toby Neal, USA Today bestselling author


“A unique paranormal lore with a touch of fantasy, the plot in Inhale is constantly on the move. … If you’re serious about Urban Fantasy novels that kick butt—I highly recommend this one!” —Giselle, Xpresso Reads
