Opening line: Pandra Parthen crumpled to her knees with a hiss, clutching at the bloody slash in her stomach, pain burning through every vein in her body.


Tortured by a power-hungry Fey father, Pandra Parthen lashes out one fateful night and inflicts an unspeakable cruelty on Vârcolac warrior Thomal Costache, unknowingly binding herself to the vamp for life. Now she is stuck forever with a man consumed by the need for revenge. Thomal remains entrenched in rage while over time Pandra grows to want a real marriage. But when she is unable to break through his forbidding walls, she seeks to release him from their bond…and the only way she can do that is through her own death.


One of the most dangerous of the Vârcolac warriors, Mixed-blood vampire Thomal Costache oozes sex appeal on the outside while concealing darkness within. His obsessive fury is only shaken by Pandra’s imminent death, when he realizes he’s been ruled by anger for reasons far deeper than her abuse. But now Pandra is trapped where no one has ever escaped, and Thomal will have to call on all his fighting skills to save her. Dying is a given, but he’ll risk everything to get what he wants above all else: a second chance.

~Fan review


“If you’re looking for a sappy, easy, cookie-cutter romance with sparkly characters or weak, virginal damsels… move along, human! This story is multi-dimensional from start to finish … Whether you’re a die-hard fan of the series already or this is your first time reading this author, you will not be bored!”

~ Fan review


Opening line: He rode up on a Harley.


Recently promoted to the Special Operations Topside Team, quiet warrior Breen Dalakis is the least likely man to commit an unauthorized bite. But in a moment of blinding bloodlust, he bites and bonds with a new Dragon woman, permanently tying himself to a stranger. Now he must find a way to break through her seething rejection, but a lifetime spent skirting his emotions has left him stumped.


Wild girl Charlize Renault has never been in a long-term relationship, doesn’t want one now, and there’s a good reason for that—a deeply buried, secret reason. But when Breen disappears on a mission gone bad, Charlize’s emotional ghosts rise again. She’ll finally have to conquer her past if she ever wants to find true happiness with the man who has moved mountains to reach her…but the last time she fought her demons, they nearly destroyed her.

Opening line: The house loomed out of the darkness like a hulking beast, its windows black eyes, the front door left gaping wide in a permanent scream.

 

Dr. Toni Parthen never knew she carried a unique, supernatural gene until the night she was kidnapped for it. Imprisoned in a secret underground community, she is asked to do the unthinkable: procreate with a vampire male in order to save their dying race. Headstrong and independent, Toni doesn’t cower in the face of her new, sinister reality. Instead she incites the other captured women to mutiny. But danger lurks around another corner. A ruthless demon faction is also after her powerful DNA, and she is suddenly thrust into the middle of a bloodline war. As her world explodes into violence, her only hope of survival lies with the dark, formidable vampire who wants nothing to do with her.


A rare half-vampire, half-demon, the leader of the Warrior Class, Jacken Brun, has vowed never to allow his tainted bloodlines into the community. Already a heavy burden, this oath becomes nearly impossible to bear when Toni’s special scent and infuriating troublemaking ignite a voracious hunger in him. Avoidance is key. But when war wages around Toni, led by the man who devastated her years ago, Jacken must choose between honoring his pledge or claiming a forbidden love.

~ Fan review


Opening lines: Marissa Bonaventure sat bolt upright in bed. Wood cracked and splintered, a door banged, furniture scraped.


A typical night turns into one of terror when Marissa Bonaventure is savagely kidnapped from her bed. Dragged into what looks like a white slavery exchange, she is helpless to escape…until a smoldering, dark-clad stranger comes from out of nowhere to save her. Marissa is brought to the safety of a quirky underground town, where she’s offered a hefty sum of money to work for a year. Saddled with a lifetime of responsibilities, she is all about earning big bucks to fulfill her dreams. The bonus—she can date the smoldering Dev Nichita. But as a string of surreal events unfolds, nothing about the community—or Dev—turns out to be what it seems.


Stubborn and arrogant, leader of the elite, Special Operations Topside Team Dev Nichita is used to getting his way. When Marissa rejects him for being a vampire, he reacts with fury and withdrawal. Then an unexpected death forces Dev to face how much he truly wants the mate of his heart. But is he too late? Or can his tenuous relationship with Marissa rise above lies, anger, an otherworldly enemy’s threats, and the vicious backlash from a century-old betrayal?

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author K.M. Scott writing as Gabrielle Bisset comes the sixth novel in the Sons of Navarus series! 

 I am everything you dream of. I am vampire.

Life is good for Dante. Well, better than for most vampires. While they're consigned to roaming the earth at night to avoid the rays of the sun that can incinerate them, as a clyten Dante can safely walk in the sunlight. The only clyten in the Sons of Navarus, he's unique.

And he knows it. Confidence has never been something he's lacked. With the war against the Archons coming any day now, he'll need all his cockiness, especially since he's in charge of bringing the American coven of witches onto the Sons' side and watching over Theron as he rapidly moves toward the time when he'll be able to join the Sons of Navarus.

Scarlett Adamson knows a thing or two about cockiness herself. A powerful witch, she's also an accomplished ballerina. Or at least she used to be before the accident. Now she's mostly just a great witch and leader of the American coven, which she knows is no small feat for a woman in her mid-twenties.

But now her group has chosen to stand behind the Sons of Navarus in their upcoming civil war, and that has brought a certain vampire into her world who has upended all her long held beliefs about the witches' archenemy. Dante is nothing like the dark creatures of the night she's always thought vampires were, and after just one night with him, she can't imagine the world without him in it.

For the Sons of Navarus, time is running out. The war with the Archons can't be stopped. Will Theron be able to fulfill the Prophecy of Idolas, or will he never get the chance? The fate of the vampire world hangs in the balance.
