A human girl and an elven prince embark on an epic quest to save both their worlds…. 

Tam is a plucky seventeen-year-old girl determined to join the army by any means necessary—even if she has to sneak in. Loren, the prince of the elves, would rather be a healer than a prince. Neither of them wishes to do what society expects of them. 

As it turns out, destiny has something else in mind for them altogether, something far grander and infinitely more dangerous. When the humans and the elves forge an unlikely alliance against a common foe, Tam and Loren are thrown together in a desperate bid to vanquish an evil king.

Originally published as Wanderwood by Tara Burman in 2018.

Mykayla’s parents’ marriage is in trouble, but they’re working on it. Unfortunately for Mykayla, that means she’s getting shipped off to Boston to spend her summer with Uncle Yushua while they work out their issues. Mykayla has issues of her own—like her confusion about her sexuality, or apparent lack of it—that she’d like to explore alongside her best friend, Xiu.The situation at her uncle’s house is weird to say the least. There’s something off about his coworkers—aside from the fact that they won’t go away.

Things go from strange to stranger when a supernatural being shows up to protect Mykayla from someone he calls the Shadow Pharaoh. Sutekhgen is a sorcerer who never made it to the afterlife, with a huge Set Beast as a companion… and the mistaken assumption that Mykayla is the reincarnation of his lost romantic partner. 

She doesn’t know what’s worse: being caught in a metaphysical conflict between ancient gods or being stuck with a pushy jerk who doesn’t know the meaning of personal boundaries.

À l’approche de son quarante-cinquième anniversaire, Lil Lampert éprouve une terrible anxiété de vieillir. Pour l’aider à retrouver goût à la vie, son partenaire, Grier Dilorio, lui propose un voyage en amoureux en Italie. Cette absence tombe plutôt mal, car leur fils, Luca vient d’entrer à l’école secondaire. Il est confié à ses oncles d’adoption, Clark Stevens, des Chicago Bears, et Jody Williams. 

Grandir entre deux couples gays a donné à Luca une perspective de la vie assez unique, sans pour autant lui permettre de répondre aux questions qu’il se pose concernant son orientation sexuelle. Après plusieurs années d’un béguin secret pour son meilleur ami, Chip Davidson, voilà que Luca s’intéresse à sa jumelle, la rousse Chyna. Alors qu’il se croyait gay, peut-être est-il bisexuel finalement. 

Chyna est né intersexué, c’est-à-dire avec un rare syndrome génétique d’ambiguïté de genre. Biologiquement, c’est un garçon, mais sa mère, troublée par une crise de dépression post-partum, l’a déclaré à la naissance en tant que fille et l’élève depuis lors dans le mensonge. La puberté arrivant, Chyna a de plus en plus de mal à dissimuler son secret, d’autant plus que sa forte attirance pour Luca lui déclenche d’étranges réactions. 

Luca saura-t-il, malgré sa jeunesse, accepter une vérité troublante et aider Chyna à découvrir sa véritable identité, ou bien va-t-il renoncer au premier écueil et réduire à néant le rêve de bonheur d’un adolescent à la dérive ?

Little Goddess: Book Three
Vol. 2

Cory’s newly bound family is starting to find its footing, which is a good thing because danger after danger threatens, and Green can't be there nearly as often as he’s needed. As Cory learns to face the challenges of ruling the hill alone, she’s also juggling a ménage relationship with three lovers—with mixed results.

But with each new challenge, one lesson becomes crystal clear: she can’t be queen without each of the men who look to her, and the people she loves aren’t safe unless she takes on that queendom with all of the intelligence and courage in her formidable heart.

But sometimes even intelligence, courage, and steadily increasing magic aren’t enough to do the job, and suddenly the role of Cory’s lovers becomes more crucial than ever. Nobody is strong enough to succeed in every task, and Cory finds that the most painful lesson she and her lovers can learn is not just how to deal with failure. Cory needs to learn that one woman is only so powerful, and she needs to choose wisely who sits outside her circle of family, and who is bound eternally in her heart.

Humans have the option of separation, divorce, and heartbreak.  For Corinne Carol-Anne Kirkpatrick, sorceress and queen of the vampires, the choices are limited to love or death. Now that she is back at Green’s Hill and assuming her duties as leader, her life is, at best, complicated. Bracken and Nicky are competing for her affections, Green is away taking care of his people, and a new supernatural enemy is threatening the sanctity of all she has come to love. Throw in a family reunion gone bad, a supernatural psychiatrist, and a killer physics class, and Cory’s life isn’t just complex, it’s psychotic.

Cory needs to get her act and her identity together, and soon, because the enemy she and her lovers are facing is a nightmare that doesn’t just kill people, it unmakes them. If she doesn’t figure out who she is and what her place is on Green’s Hill, it’s not just her life on the line. She knows from hard experience that the only thing worse than facing death is facing the death of someone she loves.

Loving people is easy—living with them is what takes the real work, and it’s even harder if you’re bound.

Ennaline Whitehall has always been faithful. The god’s love is all encompassing, after all. Besides, she hardly had a choice growing up in the church alongside Ro and Ray, the twin sons of Father Piedmont. Now the twins are talking about marriage—all three are reaching the age for betrothal—but Ennaline doesn't feel that way about the boys. She doesn't feel that way about anyone, and who knows what the other faithful will do if they learn of her peculiar coldness?

Questions about romance pale in comparison to the rising god, however. Ennaline and the twins have always helped to keep evil at bay and reassure the people, but the holes aren't closing properly anymore, and the smell of rot is growing. As the faithful gather at the Piedmont farm and something unfathomable claws its way up from beneath the earth, Ennaline struggles to maintain her beliefs. Alone, she is forced to come face-to-face with her god.
