Free sample

No one in the small Maine town of Birch Crossing knows where ex-military Harlan Shea goes when he disappears for months at a time, but whenever he reappears, his eyes are always haunted with trauma he will never share. When he returns to town for one last time, there is only one woman he wants to see, one woman he needs to connect with before he departs forever, one woman who can save what is left of his soul.

Still healing from a brutal marriage she barely escaped, Emma Larson is damaged in ways she will never reveal, not to anyone…except the dangerous, sensual man who has haunted her dreams for years, a man she has barely spoken to, a man who has come back into her life for twenty-four intense hours.

One moonlit night is all they have. 

But one night is not going to be enough. Not for him. Not for her. Not for the hearts they keep so tightly protected. But there is no future for them…or is there? They will have to become braver than they've ever been to find the love they both deserve.

 "Rowe is a paranormal star!" ~ J.R. Ward

Immortal warrior Gideon Roarke made an oath five hundred years ago to the woman who died for him. The ancient Calydon is ruthless in his quest to honor that promise, even if it means risking everything by teaming up with the one woman who will either destroy him, or finally bring redemption to his blackened, hardened soul.

After escaping from a two-year imprisonment at the hands of a madman, the only thing Lily Davenport wants is to go home and reclaim her life. Unfortunately for Lily, standing between her and that goal is a sensual, demanding protector whose dangerous seduction threatens to claim her life...and her soul.

The Calydons Destiny: The Calydons are a race of ancient immortals cursed with a dark side. Each Calydon is destined to meet his soul mate, to be so drawn to her that he is unable to resist bonding with her through the rituals of his race, but their destiny is to destroy each other and all they care about the moment their bond is complete.

"[D]ark, edgy, sexy ... sizzles on the page...sex with soul shattering connections that leave the reader a little breathless!...Rowe lays down some seriously dark and sexy tracks. There is no doubt that this series will have a cult following." ~ Guilty Indulgence Book Club

"DARKNESS SEDUCED is a fabulous story with all the right elements: a strong sexual attraction, a struggle against that attraction, a tender love, a horrendous battle against unimaginable evil and a fight to save the world...This is the kind of story you can't put down because you're so anxious to see what happens next." ~ Jeanne Stone Hunter, My Book Addiction & More

"Dark paranormal romance with passionate warriors, a cursed destiny, heartbreaking sacrifice and a gripping storyline. What I wouldn't give to hear the "crack" of a Calydon warrior's weapon as he protects me...swoon!" ~Sharon Stogner, Love Romance Passion Reviews

After two years of agonizing failure to reconnect with his daughter, he's heading to Birch Crossing to find her. Unfortunately for Griffin, he arrives to find the town has rallied against him to protect their own from an outsider. His only ally is a single mom whose warmth and determination just might break through the protective walls around his heart.

Since the day she became an eighteen-year-old widow with an infant, Clare Griffin's only goal has been to provide for her daughter. She has worked so hard to be strong, and the last thing she can afford is to open her heart to a man who will soon be leaving town, no matter how much he awakens the long-extinguished light inside her. But when Griffin helps rescue her daughter in a fierce storm, an unbreakable connection is formed between Clare and the tormented business mogul, a bond that threatens the fragile foundations of their lives.

“A testament to Stephanie Rowe’s skill and talent, one that deserves applause… phenomenal... There was not a moment that I wasn’t completely engrossed in the novel, the story, the characters… The narrative and dialogue surrounding these ‘tender’ moments in particular were so beautifully crafted, poetic even… And of course on the flip side of the heart-wrenching events, was the amazing, witty humour…superbly developed.” ~Bex ‘N’ Books

Nine brothers who stand by each other no matter what, even when all hell breaks loose…which it often does when the Stockton men are around.

Country music superstar Travis Stockton used his music to escape the Wyoming town that betrayed him as a youth, but all his money and fame can't chase away the nightmares that still haunt him. When he returns to his hometown for one final concert, he discovers that coming home is a hell of a lot harder than he'd thought...until he meets a sassy but weary single mom who needs the one thing from him he can't give, the one thing that no one else has ever wanted…himself.

Lissa McIntyre has worked hard to rebuild her life after being abandoned when she was seventeen and pregnant. After relocating to Rogue Valley, she finally feels like she belongs, for the first time in her life. She's got a great kid, and her Wildflower Café is a town favorite. The one thing she doesn't have is a man, and she intends to keep it that way. Who can afford to fall for a man who might walk away? Not her. She has no interest in men…until a dangerous, moody cowboy sits down at her deli counter and changes everything for her.

Can two battered souls find happiness with each other, or will the trauma of their past keep them apart forever?
