If Saul Ade had known that stepping into his sister’s life would make him a player in the goddess Allendra’s unforgiving game, he would have never left the shadows. If he doesn’t accept the mate she has chosen for him by the rise of the next Blood Moon, the Sídhe will become human. Unfortunately, the woman he must make his love is a mermaid who once tried to drown his sister’s human best friend. If he’d wanted a mate at all, reckless Laurel O’Cuilinn wouldn’t be it.
Laurel’s devastated to learn that Saul would rather cede Allendra’s challenge than to be with her, but she’s too practical to sulk. Four weeks isn’t much time to make Saul cast aside his grudges, and she’ll do what she must to help the Sídhe retain their magic—even if it means turning on some of the mermaid charm her fated mate finds so repugnant.
Allendra’s not the only one who can play games. But unlike the goddess, Laurel plans to play for love—not with it.
Heath Horan, Sídhe prince and leader of a crew of fairy, motorcycle-riding assassins, claims she’s his fated mate and her ticket out of there. Unfortunately, he also claims that her mother was a runaway from the fairy realm and that Queen Rhiannon—his mother—would love to see both women dead. It seems Simone has walked from one curse into another.
She may be able to get used to being the main squeeze of a sword-wielding prince in leather, but she’s not so sure she’s cut out to be an assassin, too. Unfortunately, if she wants to stay alive long enough to break her curse and help Heath subdue unrest in his realm caused by his mother’s antics, she might have to be.
After a brutal fight left werewolf Anton Denis half blind, he closed himself off to the possibility of taking a mate. It’d take a special woman to love the man behind the scars, and meek Christina Stilton insists that woman is her.
Darius used to being on the fringes, but Stephanie understands how that feels all too well. He may lack polish, but he has the tenderness that was lacking in Stephanie’s previous relationships. They’re both loners in their own ways, but if they can come together to find a common thread, the mates could ignite a romance hot enough to make them both howl.
Lisa is convinced that her born-alpha mate has the potential to solve big problems, but not without incentive. He’s a wolf with a troubled past, and if she pushes too hard, she’ll lose his trust. She can’t afford that. Colt may not only be the ticket to a better life for her sisters, but possibly the closest thing to a perfect mate a domineering Type A personality like her will ever find.
Old grudges form a seemingly insurmountable wedge between the Madeiras and Carbones, but the wolf goddess will only grant Vic and Ashley with perfect mates once. If they’re to have a hopeful future in the Norseton pack, they must set aside the insults of the past. It may take a small miracle for them to manage it.

He’s not. He’s Dasha’s.
Being the only human in the fairy clique makes Dasha the perfect little soldier to play messenger in the fairy realm. She can’t be detected by raging Queen Rhiannon’s magic, and can help pull more oppressed Sídhe to freedom. The realm is collapsing and the people need a way out.
When Ethan’s ex pulls a stunt causing Dasha to get stuck in the realm, she starts to believe she was right keeping her distance from the fairy, but that’s the least of her concerns. If Dasha can’t accept what it means to be the mate of a shapeshifting fairy knight and work a little magic of her own, the two may never make it home alive.
Queen Contessa now has two chieftains and twice as many problems. She’s not only in the midst of using her powerful psychic abilities to track long-missing clanspeople, but now has to contend with mercenaries targeting the Afótama’s New Mexican desert home and a megalomaniac fairy queen wants to take Ollie’s sons. Further, her two men seem to have forged an incendiary connection that has left her feeling cold.
If Harvey, Ollie, and Tess are to be the leaders who finally return magic to their people, they must first come to terms with having power of their own. And to balance their strengths, they may have to become a true ménage instead of a sometime threesome.

-The Viking Queen's Men
Although her sister has pulled up stakes and moved her family to the psychic community of Norseton, Marty Petersen doesn’t believe she’ll fit in with them. She belongs in familiar Florida, and not in the desert amidst a clan of thoroughly modern Vikings.
Afótama clansman Chris Holst doesn’t agree. He’s been dreaming of Marty for nearly a year and knows she’s meant to be his. He doesn’t want her to leave Norseton before he’s had his chance to bond with her in the way of their kind, but he understands why she’d be afraid. Her father is the clan’s most notorious fraud, and the blowback from his imminent expulsion could upset the single mom’s already shaky situation. He’s willing to stand at her side and hold her hand until the turmoil subsides, but she has to let him into her life first.
If Marty can’t break free from the depressive grip of the lies that have suppressed her for so many years, she won’t be able to take what’s hers. She could wield the magic of the Afótama, and more importantly, she could claim the worthy man who is rightfully hers.

The Norseton Wolfpack’s newest guard recruit, Arnold, never ignores premonitions from his goddess, but her latest missive could have him turning werewolf culture on its ear.
His rescue of runaway new mother Leonora quickly escalates to untamed infatuation after Arnold accidentally gives Leo a mating bite. Unfortunately, being married already—sort of—Leo doesn’t want another mate. Her old one was the reason she’d grabbed her baby and left Wyoming with little more than the clothes on her back.
Although Arnold promises Leo that she can have the independence she wants in Norseton, she’s not convinced real freedom is possible. Try as she might to ignore the allure of her goddess-sent rescuer, he holds her in thrall as only a true mate could. Her ex’s reckless stunt to force Leo back to Wyoming leaves Leo with little choice but to trust not only her unwavering mate, but to put her faith in her stalwart new pack, too.
Disrupting the status quo is a dangerous prospect for wolves, but the Norseton pack can’t back down—not if they ever want to put their broken families back together.
As a first-year university teaching assistant, historian Grant Fennell was quietly infatuated with a beautiful student in his class. Now the teacher-student taboo is gone, and he can finally pursue the unforgettable Carla Gill…but he doesn’t have much time to do it. He’s earned his PhD and is heading home to Ireland immediately to start a new job.
As luck would have it, Carla’s in desperate need of an expert who can help her unravel the Irish half of her family tree, and she’s willing to tag along.
Traveling to a foreign country with a man she hardly knows is the boldest risk the nervous artist has ever taken, but Carla can’t pass up the opportunity to learn about her late father’s roots and about herself. After battling years of depression, she’s ready to come out of her shell. She’s ready for passion again, and the devastatingly charming Grant awakens her boldness.
It only takes Grant a few days to be convinced that sexy, quick-witted Carla is still worthy of obsession, but Carla worries they’re moving too quickly. Playing off Grant’s assertive spontaneity, her long-stifled audacity is surfacing, and she’s certain he’ll become disenchanted. She’s not the saint he thought she was, and the torch he’s been carrying for her for so long might be overdue to burn out.
