Un buono scheletro

Serie Scheletri | Libro 1

Serie Scheletri, Libro 1

Dylan Warner è giovane, colto e conduce una vita del tutto normale. Non è il tipo che si nota facilmente, fino al giorno in cui, dopo una serata movimentata con un affascinante sconosciuto, non diventa un lupo mannaro. Nonostante tutto, però, Dylan vuole solo continuare a vivere la sua tranquilla – seppur solitaria – esistenza da architetto. Cerca di tenere sotto controllo gli impulsi selvaggi, ma ben presto decide che ne ha abbastanza della città e si trasferisce in campagna, dove gli sarà più difficile far del male al prossimo. La sua nuova casa è un po’ decrepita, ma promettente, e corredata per di più da un nuovo vicino: il sexy, anche se un po’ rozzo, Chris Nock.

Dylan assume Chris perché lo aiuti a ristrutturare casa, ma presto si accorge che le sue prime impressioni su di lui erano sbagliate e che Chris, così come la casa, potrebbe diventare un elemento fisso nella sua nuova vita. Tra il mostrare al suo capo quanto vale, resistere al seducente richiamo del suo pericoloso ex-amante e la sua limitata esperienza nel campo delle relazioni sentimentali, per Dylan è molto difficile capire come comportarsi… Come giustificare poi l’irresistibile voglia di ululare alla luna piena che lo coglie ogni mese?

Spell Bound

The Warlock Brothers of Havenbridge | Book One
2015 Award Winners

The Warlock Brothers of Havenbridge: Book One

Mason Blackmoor just can’t compete with his brothers, much less his father. They represent the epitome of black magic, strong, dark, and wicked, and though Mason tries to live up to his respected lineage, most of the spells he casts go awry. To make matters worse, his active power has yet to kick in. While his brothers wield lightning and harness the cold, Mason sits on the sidelines, waiting for the moment when he can finally enter the magical game.

When a dead body is discovered on the football field of his high school, Mason meets Drake Carpenter, the new kid in town. Drake’s confident demeanor and quick wit rub Mason the wrong way. Drake is far too self-assured for someone without an ounce of magical blood in his body, and Mason aims to teach him a lesson—like turn him into a roach. And if he’s lucky, maybe this time Mason won’t be the one turned into an insect.

Not surprisingly, the dislike is mutual, and Drake does nothing to dispel Mason’s suspicion that the sexy boy with a southern drawl is somehow connected to the murder.

If only Mason didn’t find himself inexplicably spell bound whenever they are together, they might actually find out what danger hides in the shadows.

A Counselor Among Wolves

Leader Murders | Book Two

Leader Murders: Case Two

Five dead leaders, their bodies arranged in a pentagram. Treason, lies, and backstabbing. A make-believe affair that turns into a real mating.

Timothy Sands is a PBI counselor, half-fey, half-elf, with a secret crush on Herman Weiss, PBI director. As a new chapter is added to the Leader Murders, it is Weiss’s responsibility to investigate what seems an impossible-to-solve case. The other problem? Weiss is suffering from rages, and his only salvation lies in Tim’s emotional-grid-balancing skills. They only have to pretend to be a couple for Tim to use his talents, and he owes Weiss a big favor. Piece of cake, right?

The fey might be involved in the Leader Murders. Someone on the Council might be their ally, and another prominent PBI figure looks more and more suspicious as they investigate. The stakes are upped when Timothy’s father, the Fey King, threatens to leave the Council destitute if they don’t hand Timothy over to him. Weiss’s brilliant solution? Mating Timothy and forcing the Council into protecting him.

There’s only one small hitch in that plan: instead of protecting one, the Council might decide to get rid of two.

Fighting Instinct

L'Ange | Book Two

Only a privileged few know L’Ange’s head of security Arman de Soto is a shifter, and even fewer know he’s been systematically killing off a pack of werewolves. The reason for this vengeance is a secret Arman trusts with no one, quite the opposite of his obvious longtime pursuit of the château’s overseer, Linus Hobbes. Despite Arman’s reputation as a loner, the only thing he needs to complete his life is Linus. Predator and prey just don’t mix—but Arman won’t give him up.

Linus has lived alone for more than seven years, sheltered at L’Ange under an assumed name and hiding secrets of his own, including his terrifying attraction to the most dangerous man he’s ever met. Arman knows Linus should be afraid of the predator stalking him, but Linus is still drawn to him like a moth to a flame, no matter how much he tries to deny his instincts. It’s not until Linus’s past and Arman’s crusade exposes their secrets and opens L’Ange to attack that Arman realizes waiting any longer is a risk he just can’t take. So he’ll have to take his quest to the source of the threat in a gamble to protect L’Ange, Linus, and any future they might have together.
