Awkward Holidays

Trapped in the Ward mansion with a reluctant and standoffish host – a vampire she should be afraid of but can’t help being attracted to – Angelina is preparing herself for grim, lonely holidays.

When her parents unexpectedly decide to visit, the situation, far from improving, only grows more complicated. They look forward to visiting New York with her, but how can she explain that she’s unable to leave the mansion? For that matter, what will they say when they realize she lives with a millionaire?

A hastily concocted excuse smoothes things over, but now Angelina finds herself having to work closely with Morgan Ward. It wouldn’t be so bad if Morgan was as pleasant to her as he is to her parents, but his mercurial moods leave her confused and frustrated. It doesn’t help that he seems no closer to finding a way for her to leave his house.

The New Year brings change with a startling kiss and an even more surprising guest… or is it more of the same?

My Reluctant Warden

My Reluctant Warden (Sexy Paranormal Romance by Kallysten)When her boss brought her to the party of the season, Mr. Ward’s birthday bash, Angelina thought she had slipped on Cinderella’s shoes.

Now that she is compelled to remain in the mansion, trapped with a host who was only pleasant to her in a shared fantasy, the dream abruptly turns sour.

Under other circumstances, she might enjoy staying in an opulent guest suite, with a butler waiting on her every desire. But her cage, as gilded as it may be, remains a prison, and her host, even if he wishes she were gone, is still her warden.

As she struggles to get used to the situation, she can’t figure out what to think of Morgan Ward, a man who claims to be a vampire, who at times ignores her and at times shows himself unexpectedly thoughtful. A man she’s attracted to despite her better judgment.

However, an unexpected conversation with her boss may give her no choice but to get much closer to Morgan than she’s ready for…

Losing His Wings

Losing His Wings (Angel and Demon Romance Novella)For millennia, Samuel has whispered in humans’ and vampires’ minds and tried to steer them toward the right path. For almost as long, Rowan has stood opposite him and nudged the same prey toward more questionable choices. Sometimes, Samuel won. Sometimes, Rowan did. But there was always someone else to help—or destroy.

When they battle once again over Jeffrey, a newly-turned vampire, the fight takes a different turn. This time, it’s about more than the life of Jeffrey’s girlfriend Tanya, or the people Jeffrey might kill to feed. This time, the fight might just be Samuel’s and Rowan’s last.

Moonlust

cover for MoonlustThe job was supposed to be an easy one for Captain Kar and his two-man crew: land the Danaus on the deserted moon, appropriate a few boxes of precious chromore, and jump out of the system before the Guardians could get to them. Even Will and Jay’s inability to keep their hands off each other for any length of time should not have been too much of a problem.

They discover too late it’s the laineards’ mating season. The resulting sexual pheromones begin to affect them as soon as they step off the  ship. With Will and Jay losing their minds to lust, and Kar himself blinded by visions of the two men he has wanted for months, things suddenly get much harder than expected.

Their only hope for not ending up in jail is to get out of there before the Guardians find them. Except an open loading dock contaminated the air inside the Danaus. And Kar will have to resort to drastic measures to keep Jay and Will apart long enough to escape…

Aria and Will

Cover for Aria & WillIn a near-apocalyptic world, humans and vampires are allied against savage demons from a parallel dimension that relentlessly attack their cities.

In the fortified town of Newhaven, Wilhelm, a centuries-old vampire, has been fighting for so long and has lost so much that he’s not sure he remembers why he fights anymore. After a chance meeting with the human child Ariadne, he keeps a close eye on her, and makes sure she remains safe. Watching her grow up reminds him of his purpose and gives a face to the humans he tries to protect with renewed vigor.

As years pass, however, and Aria becomes a young woman, then a fierce fighter, his protectiveness slowly turns into something deeper. Refusing to grow too close to her, he places a young vampire onto her path and takes a step back.

From the moment she lost her father to the demons as a child, Aria knew she’d pick up a sword someday, and join the fight, regardless of her family’s disapproval. She just hadn’t expected Will, a close advisor to the Guard’s Commander, to disapprove as well. Nor had she expected to find out that he has feelings for her… or realize that she returns them.

With danger and death lurking out of every shadow, can they find a way to be together before their time runs out?

Two centuries since her plan backfired, resulting not in the destruction of demons as she had hoped, but instead in the slaughtering of countless humans and vampires that had been fighting against them. Two centuries also, since she pushed away her favorite Childe, without ever telling him why. Two centuries of fighting alone to protect the humans she has sworn to defend from demons. Two centuries of missing Erik.

When he finally reappears in her life, she thinks she has been offered a second chance. But she soon realizes that she will need to face her mistakes to reach him, and understand that silence can be more painful than words.

Souls Night

Cover for Souls NightTo be allowed to join the Fighters who protect her village from fierce demons, Mierna has to go through the woods on Souls Night in search of a weapon. What she finds, instead, is a strikingly attractive vampire who once kept her people safe along with his now lost clan.

To her surprise, Elden gives her the sword she had come to steal, and when she asks, he accepts to teach her how to use it. In exchange, she offers him a few mouthfuls of her blood.

Hundreds of years after the Pact between her village and Elden was broken, it is a very different relationship that Mierna develops with the handsome but taciturn vampire; and when saying goodbye becomes too difficult, unexpected allies might help convince him that she’s not the child he would like to see in her–not a child, but maybe a Childe.
