Trained from birth to become the ruler of the Nephilim and their island sanctuary, Amira is the perfect princess, until her birthright and even her fundamental beliefs are ripped away. She’ll discover perfection and training count for nothing when faced with a ruthless enemy determined to possess her and all she holds dear.

As captain of the Royal Guard, Caeden’s priority is to protect the Royal Family. Sometimes that means protecting the naïve princess from her own desires, even if he is tempted to give in. When a betrayer strikes from within, their sanctuary and very existence are threatened. Caeden must overcome the burning pain of helplessness to defeat this enemy and restore Amira to her rightful place. He will not fail his princess again.

Do they have the fortitude and inner strength needed to regain the kingdom and save their people?

When an underage groupie stows away on his tour bus to be near her idol, rock superstar Damon Frost suddenly finds himself facing serious charges and a federal prosecutor out for blood.

Scarlet lives with her two dogs and their Master in a lakeside community in the New Orleans area.

Liza Cartwright’s journey leads her to Devil’s Valley and she’s not sure why. Greeted by a witch while trying to rent a room, Eliza is greatly disturbed by what she learns. According to a legend, those who arrive in Devil’s Valley, never leave. Unwilling to accept some crazy myth, Liza goes to Gideon’s Hall looking for the vampire who can change her fate.

Soon after arriving at a vampire’s mansion, Liza is inexplicably drawn to Gideon and Jake Devil, but she’s horrified to learn all the ways they’re connected. Inevitably doomed to a love she can’t escape, Liza gives up her dreams for two sexy vampires and a family full of blood drinkers. And she makes it her mission to find out about the witches and their damning curses by vowing to do whatever necessary to break them.

“Mr. Devil, it might interest you to know that I’m a lady.” She hadn’t behaved like one but that was beside the point.
“It doesn’t interest me at all, Miss Cartwright.” He sat on the settee opposite his bed. “Remove your clothes.”
“Remove my…”
He held up his hand, hoping to silence her. Properly duped, Liza stared at him dumbfounded and her silence did little to calm the angst stirring inside him. He was growing impatient and fully aware of the reasons.
Liza’s modesty might have been an admirable quality in some parts of the world but not in the Wild, Wild West and certainly not in the Devil brothers’ home. Unbuttoning his shirt, he let the garment hang free and leaned back, watching her carefully as he released her mind and allowed her to think freely once more.
She immediately gasped and looked the other way. “Mr. Devil! If you would please refrain from showing yourself!”

Carly Fitzpatrick had married the love of her life…and lost him in a tragic accident.

With no intention of ever falling in love again, she prefers to rely on herself to provide for her two young sons.  She doesn’t count on meeting the one man who could change her mind.

Will Buchanon is a man on a mission.  For twelve years he has been tracking an imposter; and the trail leads to Hidden Springs.  His only objective is to bring the criminal to justice.  Falling in love is not part of his plan.

Sparks fly from the first moment they meet but Carly resists Will at every turn, refusing to surrender to her desires.  When her life is put in jeopardy, he risks everything to save her, and in the process proves that he is worthy of her love.

Can he win the heart of the woman who has a will of her own?

Breaking apart, they stared at each other, both panting heavily.  Backing away a few steps, Carly placed her hand on her chest, trying to slow her breathing.  Will took a step towards her but she shook her head, taking another step back.

“Will?  Are you in here?”

“I’ll be right there, Jacob,” she answered for him, the tremor in her voice less obvious than she would have imagined.  “I can’t do this, Will.  I don’t want to.  You’ll be leaving as soon as you’ve found the person you’re looking for.  I won’t be a fling.”

Stepping close, he ran his thumb along her lower lip as he responded.  “You’re wrong about two things. You do want to do this; you wouldn’t have kissed me back if you didn’t.  And maybe I have found the person I’ve been looking for.”
