Coalición de Sangre | Volumen 1

Volumen 1 de la serie "Coalición de Sangre"

¿Pueden un mago desesperado y un amargado y desilusionado vampiro encontrar la manera de forjar la coalición que podría salvar al mundo?

En un mundo sacudido por la guerra entre magos, los vampiros son vistos por muchos como seres inferiores a los humanos, como las estereotipadas criaturas de la noche que necesitan cazar a otros para sobrevivir. Pero a medida que la guerra se intensifica, los magos de la Milice se dan cuenta de que van a necesitar sacarse un as de la manga que incline la balanza a su favor, y la fuerza de los vampiros puede proporcionarles esa ventaja en la guerra contra los magos oscuros que buscan destruir el mundo tal y como se conoce hasta entonces.

En un movimiento peligroso y como muestra de buena voluntad, los magos le piden al líder de los vampiros que se reúna con ellos para poder exponerle su causa. Un mago desesperado, Alain Magnier, y un amargado y desilusionado vampiro, Orlando St. Clair, se reúnen en París, y la suerte del mundo depende de que lleguen a un acuerdo: ¿se unirán los vampiros a la causa de los magos y formarán una coalición con ellos para poder ganar la guerra?

Losing It

Witch Hunt and Losing It

Sequel to Witch Hunt

Mike Srevic blinked and the world turned upside down. For fifty years he lived alone, mystically bound and incapable of comfortably using his magic. Now he’s back on the throne as High Mage and soul-bound to Rick Behr, a man he hardly knows. Luckily, Rick has a big heart and huge reserves of patience, because Mike is still raw from watching his former lover die and doesn’t know how to talk about a future with Rick.

Defining their relationship isn’t Mike’s only challenge: an army of demons is amassing, and Mike discovers he has a nephew named Wyatt. It’s enough to rouse painful memories, leading Mike to believe his loved ones will only end up hurt. Scared and unsure what to do, he pushes Rick away and flies off to Chicago to train Wyatt.

But then Wyatt is kidnapped and Mike finds himself needing Rick’s support more than ever. Can he trust himself to make the right decisions and save the ones he loves?

Legami di sangue | Libro 1

Serie Legami di sangue, Libro 1

Un mago disperato e un vampiro disilluso e amareggiato possono trovare il modo di costruire un’alleanza che possa salvare il loro mondo?

In un mondo scosso da una guerra combattuta a colpi di magia, i vampiri sono considerati meno che umani, le tipiche creature della notte che, come nelle leggende, danno la caccia agli uomini. Ma all’inasprirsi dei combattimenti, i maghi capiscono di aver bisogno di un vantaggio che volga gli eventi in loro favore: la forza che i vampiri possono dare loro nella lotta contro i maghi oscuri, i quali cercano di distruggere la vita così come la conoscono.

Con una mossa azzardata, ma indice di buona volontà, i maghi chiedono al capo dei vampiri di incontrali, per perorare la loro causa. Un uomo disperato, Alain Maigner, e un vampiro amareggiato e disilluso, Orlando St. Clair, si incontrano a Parigi, e il destino del mondo dipenderà dalle loro decisioni: i vampiri si uniranno alla causa e formeranno un’alleanza con i maghi per vincere la guerra?

Lifting the Veil | Book Two

A Lifting the Veil Story

Ten years ago, the Great Unveiling revealed the presence of supernatural beings living on Earth. But the residents of the ruined city discovered in Majlis al-Jinn are long dead—or so junior archaeologist Pip Butler thought until he accidentally unleashed a very naked genie named Jinn.

Even though he’s been shyly pining for his charismatic supervisor, Val Velde, Pip has a hard time refusing Jinn’s flirtatious advances. He barely has time to even consider the fact that he has an all-powerful genie and three glorious wishes at his fingertips when ruthless mercenaries sweep down on the dig to collect the most valuable artifact of all—Jinn’s lamp.

So Pip, Val, and Jinn have to work together in a race against the clock to discover the secrets of the ancient city, free their captive colleagues, and keep Jinn from the mercenaries’ clutches—all while trying to sort out their romantic tangle.

The Thirteenth Sigil

Section Thirteen

Sequel to The Thirteenth Pillar
A Section Thirteen Story

After his last somewhat disastrous assignment, sidhe special detective Tuulois MacColewyn effectively got benched. But when a break-in at a high-tech storage facility leaves no witnesses—alive or, Cole’s specialty, dead—and just one missing canister, he’s recalled to Section Thirteen, the NYPD’s paranormal branch. It’s nice to get to work again with his current flame, Inspector Joss Vallimun, even if they do have their hands full: some mysterious force is cutting a swath through the city in search of that canister. If Cole and Joss figure that out, there’s the disappearances of employees connected to a local children’s television program to solve. Meanwhile, Internal Affairs is breathing down their necks.

But while Section Thirteen is working to find the stolen property and figure out what it is, something even stranger starts happening. Children’s imaginary friends are somehow manifesting themselves—and they’re coming after Section Thirteen. Even with a newly deputized witch and an ogre to bolster their numbers, the detectives have their work cut out for them.

A Section Thirteen Story

Tuulois MacColewyn’s simple life performing dirty jobs for fey hiding in New York City has died a quick death. Consulting for the NYPD on a case involving child abductions, losing a friend, laying siege to a stronghold at the end of Broadway, and being chased through a hospital by animated scarecrows combined to make last month hell. This month is shaping up to be much worse.

Yet, it’s not all bad. Cole has a new place to live, a steady-paying job working for the NYPD, and the heart of Inspector Joss Vallimun, head of Section Thirteen and, incidentally, Cole’s new boss.

Section Thirteen is understaffed and overworked, trying to solve every supernatural crime in New York, including a series of grisly child murders and evidence that local fey are being enslaved. When Vallimun is gravely injured just as the investigation reaches a fever pitch while a snowstorm blankets the city, Cole will need all the help he can get to have any hope of salvaging this month at all.

With his best friend, Andrew, and Andrew’s soulbound partner along for the ride, Mike can’t help but feel lonely until he meets Rick, an all-around gorgeous man who might just be the wrong guy—again—especially since Mike can’t shake an ex-lover who’s hoping for a second chance.

The Thirteenth Child

Section Thirteen

A Section Thirteen story

Immortal sidhe Tuulois MacColewyn is living rough. After nearly two centuries of life as one of Faerie Queen Titania's prized wolves and a handful of years as a Roaring Twenties mob boss's favorite enforcer, he's now exiled to New York, making rent doing dirty jobs for other fey outcasts. He used to consult on the occult for Detective James Corhagen at the NYPD, but since their highly combustible friendship burned itself out a year ago, Cole hasn't heard from him.

All that changes when Corhagen summons Cole right out of his shower and into the middle of a crime scene. The NYPD is facing a rash of messy black-magic murders, complete with exploding hearts and very little forensic evidence, not to mention the sinister disappearance of several half-fey children. However hard he tries to deny it—and his inconvenient attraction to the sidhe—Corhagen needs Cole’s help. A persistent police inspector rounds out the team, but when their investigation comes too close to the truth, suddenly it’s their lives on the line. With a powerful killer on the loose, Cole, James, and Inspector Vallimun must race against time to stop the monster out to claim the thirteenth child.

On top of that, Duncan has decided to add dating into the mix, though after Robbie’s death, he’s not sure he’s ready.

When Duncan meets Nick while tracking down a lead on Brenda’s boyfriend, he shelves his doubts and agrees to a date. Robbie doesn’t make it easy on him, showing up to spoil his chances, but that is the least of Duncan’s worries—because one of his clients’ husbands is missing and there’s a serial killer on the loose—one Duncan fears isn’t human.

Gabriel Blackstone’s world is divided quite clearly into castes: everyone knows their place and abides by it. As an inventor in the merchant caste, his life is predictable in its routine until the night his best friends and assistants, Caleb and Andrew, purchase the time—and body—of a companion for his birthday. As an activist in the Caste Equality movement, everything Gabriel believes in tells him to refuse the gift, but then he meets Lucio. The beautiful and alluring companion is far more than the vapid courtesan he'd expected, and he can’t get the man out of his mind.

After that night, Gabriel tells himself to forget about Lucio, but a chance meeting at a ball makes it clear neither of them is willing to ignore the compelling chemistry between them. It will take all their combined trust and cunning, plus the help of a wily aristocrat and a plucky political activist, to overcome the challenges of infidelity, abuse, and social stigma that lay along their road; however, Gabriel knows it will all be worth it if at the end of the day he can call Lucio his own.

He's got a spotty record from the Army, a one-night stand who won't go away, and a flock of reporters trying to crucify him for shooting a civilian waving a toy pistol.

Miguel has always tried to avoid relationships out of guilt and fear, but Nikolai sees the darkness in Miguel's heart—and the fortitude Miguel has hidden deep inside, a strength that will help him solve the case and reclaim his life.
