THIEF'S DESIRE (Fate's Hand, Book 1) OUT NOW


She’s a thief.
Victoria Flash, street thief and gambler, has spent her life scraping by on the streets of Dareelia, surviving and even thriving in the capital city’s underworld. But a chance encounter with a sexy and notorious King’s Own sets her on a path that could be deadlier than anything she’s ever faced. Something is brewing in her city, something that could destroy the world, and Vic won’t rest until she finds answers. If she didn’t have to contend with her overwhelming feelings for the King’s Own, she might even survive.

He protects the king.
King’s Own, General Jacob Marin is on the hunt for the source of trouble brewing in his city. When he happens across a clever street thief, he knows he’s found just the spy he needs in the underworld. It helps that she’s sexy and clever and oh so tempting. For a man who thought he’d lost his heart to his best friend’s wife years earlier, desire for the little thief is a welcome sensation. But when things get deadly and Vic’s life is in danger, Jacob discovers his feelings run far deeper than mere desire.

Then Fate comes calling…

Trust doesn’t come easy for Vic, but Jacob forces her to see a life she’s never even imagined for herself. First, though, they have to survive blood sorcerers, goblins, the possible destruction of the world, Jacob’s protective instincts, and Vic’s first trip into the woods. If they manage to live through their perilous mission, love and fate might just give them a chance at a future together.

FIRE AND TEARS SERIES -- OUT OF PRINT


BRIGHTARROW BURNING (Fire and Tears Book #1)

War tore them apart. Betrayal could bring them together…

Layla Brightarrow’s world fell apart the day the Sorcerers invaded her city, intent on using her fellow humans’ pain to augment their spells. Worse, the neighboring elven kingdom declared neutrality, effectively abandoning her people to struggle for survival.

Then some of the elves break neutrality to trade with the Sorcerers, and Layla is ordered to assassinate Althir, brother of the elf lord she has secretly loved all her life.

When Ulric of Glengowyn uncovers his brother’s plot—and that Layla is one of the assassins sent to stop him—his first instinct is to protect her from all possible harm. He’ll even use seduction, if necessary, to get her into a position to talk some sense into her.

Years of pent-up desire is too much for Layla to resist…and one touch unleashes an unquenchable fire that changes everything. Leaving Layla caught between duty and a love that could be her destruction. Or her salvation.

Warning: This book contains evil sorcerers, a scarred heroine, a sexy elf hero, naughty language, and an intoxicating and addicting pheromone that leads to wildly hot sex. Plus traitors, deadly magic, bespelled baddies, and a really, really rotten brother.


THE DARKNESS OF GLENGOWYN (Fire and Tears Book #2)

They’ll risk forever death for one last chance together…

Nuala of Glengowyn hasn’t left her home city in over a century, but not by choice. Her skill as a weapons master has made her a prisoner of her people. Held apart, protected in the extreme—until Sorcerers attack the human city of Sinnale.

Sent to supply her unique magical arrows to help the humans, she is far from free. The elf king and queen have sent a bodyguard, a fearsome warrior whose reputation has no rival. The only man she has ever wanted. Einar of Glengowyn.

Einar is known as a battle-crazed destroyer, so feared among elves he’s called by a single name: Darkness. And he has only one weakness—Nuala. Their union is forbidden, for melding their magics could destroy Nuala’s gifts. Yet as they journey to the war-torn city, no royal decree is a match for two hundred years of pent-up desire.

But even if they escape the war zone, their lives still hang in the balance. They must confront their sovereigns and prove love makes them stronger—or face their deaths.

Warning: This book contains a deadly elf hero, a heroine who’s his match, a lot of sexy misbehaving, some hard language, racing through the streets, owls, arrows, evil Sorcerers, wicked minions, and a very dangerous elf king and queen.


WARRIOR'S DAWN (Fire and Tear Book #3) -- July 29, 2014

For a chance at love, he may have to offer up his last drop of blood.

Branded a traitor, Althir of Glengowyn has resigned himself to life as outcast from his own people—until he’s offered a chance at redemption. A suicide mission to retrieve a vessel bearing the ultimate weapon: the Sorcerers’ true names.

His companion on the journey is a human woman unlike any he’s ever encountered. Beautiful. Brave. Fascinating. And before he knows it, keeping her safe is more important than his own salvation.

Mina Dawnswealth’s talent for spycraft has kept her alive even as her dreams—and her family—have fallen victim to the war, one by one. Much as she hates the idea of helping the traitor elf, at least she gets the pleasure of burying a knife in his back should he decide to betray her people again. A much easier task if she didn’t find him so compelling.

Only when they’re beyond the point of no return do they discover just how much blood their mission will cost. And how much love it will take to overcome their pasts—if they survive.

Warning: Contains an arrogant ass of an elf hero and a human heroine with a bitter past who would like nothing better than to kill him. Danger, fighting, hard language, magical mayhem, deadly Sorcerers and hot sex fueled by an addictive pheromone. Can we get a “Hell, yeah”?
