In MOON DANCER, enter the landless planet of Sea Forest from BENEATH THE THIRTEEN MOONS, where love and betrayal can be deadly. In DISENCHANTED LOVER, enter the magical world of Victorian London from the RELICS OF MERLIN series, where passion always trumps enchantment.

MOON DANCER: Tarov is a skilled dancer, wielding the deadly instruments crafted from the bones of a sea monster. Henel has stolen Tarov’s man in the past, and now seems intent on not only taking Tarov’s place as lead dancer, but her new lover too. Will Tarov lose everything to treachery? Or will the magic of Sea Forest help her find happiness?

DISENCHANTED LOVER: When Lady Rose Cheevers impulsively casts a spell and brings her husband back from the grave, she’s horrified to discover he’s not the angel she thought. When she seeks out the roguish thief, Mister Drake Pann, to help rid her of the demon, she discovers a new passion for love that may have everything to do with enchantment…or nothing at all.

“In Moon Dancer, Ms. Kennedy returns to the erotic, verdant world she created in her novel Beneath The Thirteen Moons. She is clearly comfortable returning to this setting as she easily slips the reader into the aquatic planet whose inhabitants worship the sea and live in massive trees. The result is a crisply told tale of love, jealousy and betrayal unfolding in a troupe of moon dancers, skilled performers of a beautiful and potentially deadly art form.  Of course our heroine Tarov gets her man, but will she lose her identity in the process? Moon Dancer is one part sci-fi thriller, one part love story and one part Shakespearian drama, all wrapped tightly into a dense yet easy to read short story.” —David Benz, Edgar-nominated author

"A Tolkien-esque world combined with an eighteenth-century historical romance produces a satisfying tale with twists you'll never expect. Excellent!"—Jennifer Ashley, USA Today bestselling author of Pride Mates

In a magical land ruled by ruthless Elven lords, the Fire Lord's son Dominic Raikes plays a deadly game to conceal his growing might from his malevolent father—until his arranged bride awakens in him passions he thought he had buried forever.

Lady Cassandra has been raised in outward purity and innocence, while secretly being trained as an assassin. Her mission is to bring down the Elven Lord and his champion son. But when she gets to court she discovers that nothing is what it seems, least of all the man she married.

But beneath the gilded castles lies an unspeakable evil, greater than either Dominic or Cassandra had ever fathomed, and without each other they may not survive.

A unique combination of historical and fantasy romance, The Fire Lord's Lover will fascinate readers of Karen Monin, Sherrilyn Kenyon, Kresley Cole, and Diane Duval who will adore this imaginative unexpected love story between the son of a tyrant and the woman sent to take them both down.

#1 New York Times bestselling author Stephanie Laurens returns to the Cynsters’ next generation to bring you a thrilling tale of love, intrigue, and fabulous horses.

A notorious rakehell with a stable of fabulous Thoroughbreds and a lady on a quest to locate such horses must negotiate personal minefields to forge a greatly desired alliance—one someone is prepared to murder to prevent.

Prudence Cynster has turned her back on husband hunting in favor of horse hunting. As the head of the breeding program underpinning the success of the Cynster racing stables, she’s on a quest to acquire the necessary horses to refresh the stable’s breeding stock.

On his estranged father’s death, Deaglan Fitzgerald, now Earl of Glengarah, left London and the hedonistic life of a wealthy, wellborn rake and returned to Glengarah Castle determined to rectify the harm caused by his father’s neglect. Driven by guilt that he hadn’t been there to protect his people during the Great Famine, Deaglan holds against the lure of his father’s extensive collection of horses and, leaving the stable to the care of his brother, Felix, devotes himself to returning the estate to prosperity.

Deaglan had fallen out with his father and been exiled from Glengarah over his drive to have the horses pay their way. Knowing Deaglan’s wishes and that restoration of the estate is almost complete, Felix writes to the premier Thoroughbred breeding program in the British Isles to test their interest in the Glengarah horses.

On receiving a letter describing exactly the type of horses she’s seeking, Pru overrides her family’s reluctance and sets out for Ireland’s west coast to visit the now-reclusive wicked Earl of Glengarah. Yet her only interest is in his horses, which she cannot wait to see.

When Felix tells Deaglan that a P. H. Cynster is about to arrive to assess the horses with a view to a breeding arrangement, Deaglan can only be grateful. But then P. H. Cynster turns out to be a lady, one utterly unlike any other he’s ever met.

Yet they are who they are, and both understand their world. They battle their instincts and attempt to keep their interactions businesslike, but the sparks are incandescent and inevitably ignite a sexual blaze that consumes them both—and opens their eyes.

But before they can find their way to their now-desired goal, first one accident, then another distracts them. Someone, it seems, doesn’t want them to strike a deal. Who? Why?

They need to find out before whoever it is resorts to the ultimate sanction.

 

A historical romance with neo-Gothic overtones, set in the west of Ireland. A Cynster Next Generation novel—a full-length historical romance of 125,000 words.
