She wanted it hot. But is two too hot to handle?

When Nicole Bernard realizes her life is so boring, her only excitement is reading spicy romance novels, she resolves to make a change. A huge one—as in pulling up stakes to move across country to Boston, hoping life will go from humdrum to humming in no time.

She’s not even done packing when she gets her first dose of “interesting”. A friend drags her out to a club, where she enjoys a sexy sammich dance with two men who make her blood pump harder than the music.

James Henrick and Joseph Oliver have been looking for someone to complete their vampire trinity bond, and their first taste of Nicole convinces them she’s the one. Though they mean to take their sweet time seducing her, things flare quickly out of control.

One moment, Nicole is asking herself why she has to choose between two tasty morsels like James and Joseph. The next, she’s on a one-way trip to immortality—and she doesn’t even remember buying a ticket.

Originally released as A Darker Trinity from 2008-2012 with Lyrical Press

There are monsters, then there are monsters. Which kind wants her dead?

There was a time Marissa van Dyke loved Halloween. Then tragedy struck. Now the sight of a jack-o-lantern only reminds her of what she's lost. In fact, she'd prefer to just hibernate.

But recently her nightmares are becoming too intense to ignore. Dreams filled with horror-movie creatures that come closer to killing her every time. Where these vampires and werewolves are coming from, she doesn't know. She only knows they're relentless.

Neil Drigan has no interest in finding a mate. Bind himself to one woman? No thank you. Permanent is for the wolf pack Alpha--his brother. Yet lately he persistently dreams about running, in full wolf form, to save a beautiful woman who smells of flowers--and death.

At first the woman's identity is a mystery, until he realizes the dreams are a residual imprint of something that really happened. Not only is the woman temptation wrapped in real flesh and blood, she's still in danger. And the one thing he never thought he wanted.

Originally released as "Unholy Night" 2008-2012.

Warning: Werewolves, vampires, Templar Knights with attitudes, and a girl who must face her biggest fear in order to find love.

Even Fairy Godmothers can make the wrong call, and have to ask for backup.

Under His Nose

Fairy Godmother Christy is due for retirement, but agrees to take one last case, even if she must use as little magic as possible.

Roark’s perfect match is his best friend Stephanie. Bringing these two together would have been simple if Cupid hadn’t shot an arrow into Roark, forcing the mortal to fall in love.

Now Christy must use every skill at her command to thwart Cupid’s meddling and get Roark and Stephanie together without changing their free will, or she’ll never get her own Happily Ever After.

Before His Eyes

When Fairy Godmother Lilly gets her latest assignment, the rules lend her pause. She must bring two people together—using as little magic as possible.

Bruce Matthews has finally found someone who really gets him. There’s just one thing—he’s never actually seen her. Much as Greta Vandecall yearns to meet her online prince charming, secrets force her to hide.

A steampunk convention seems to be the perfect way for the lovers to meet face-to-mask. But if Lilly fails, she’ll lose her fairy godmother status. For good.

Warning: Magic, fairy godmothers, stupid decisions, a rambunctious god, and stubborn people who need a kick in the butt to see what’s obviously meant to be.

Sometimes the future comes knocking. Sometimes it knocks you into next week.

The Mythicals, Book 1

Fairy-In-Distress team member Duncan Molar’s mission is as simple as it is desperate. Find his missing best friend, banshee Cara Wallace, before an assassin lights the magical fuse that will unlock her scream, wiping out the last merrow colony on earth.

Since the day he rescued her from a fishing net, the near-victim of her very first scream, they’ve been joined at the hip, he helping her with her telepathy, she helping him remember the beautiful side of being a fairy.

When he finds her, the crisis isn’t over, for the unreleased scream could kill her…unless he gets her to a remote location and figures out a way to release it safely. The solution blows them so far apart, Duncan’s back to square one. Doing whatever he has to—including sacrificing his job with the FID—in order to save her.

Because secretly, he’s been in love with her for a decade.

Warning: A determined fairy, a banshee-in-distress, and a djinn that will only make matters worse.

Even Fairy Godmothers can make the wrong call.

Avalynn Fay is not a typical Fairy Godmother. She wears leather body suits, rides motorcycles, and prefers bourbon to anything fru-fru. Probably why she is assigned new charge, Jason Gregorian—a PI who drinks bourbon and loves to cook barbecue.

Jason’s a good guy. Generally decent. Even willing to pretend to be his ex-girlfriend Tessa’s date for a wedding, so she won’t be alone while her ex struts around with his latest squeeze on his arm.

Should be easy, right?

All Ava has to do is talk to him, feel him out a bit, and she’ll know exactly how to get the wheels in gear. Except when she meets Jason, suddenly no one is good enough for him. Not even Tessa, his intended Happily Ever After.

It’s enough to make a fairy godmother want a healthy shot of bourbon—right before she breaks all the rules.

Warning: Contains a fairy godmother who’s ready to spread her wings—and maybe a few other appendages—for a mortal hot enough to make her drive her motorcycle right off the road.

Sometimes even a fairy godmother needs to call for backup.

When Fairy Godmother Lilly Bloom gets her latest assignment, the rules send her into a minor panic attack. She must bring two people together—using as little magic as possible.

Photographer Bruce Matthews has finally found someone who really, really gets him. He and Greta like the same things, laugh at the same jokes. There’s just one thing—he’s never actually seen her face to face. Her social media profile bears no picture.

Much as Greta Vandecall yearns to leave her small town and meet her online prince charming, secrets chain her to the past and force her to hide her face from the world. Secrets she knows would destroy the friendship she values most.

A steampunk convention seems to be the perfect way to meet face to mask. And in the excitement of the moment they connect in a very warm, real way. But cold, hard reality isn’t far behind. And if Lilly fails, this time she’ll lose her fairy godmother status. For good.

Warning: Stupid decisions, a love of steampunk, and a fairy godmother willing to do whatever it takes to bring two people together.

There’s more than one way to unwrap a gift.

Erica Jones is a Scrooge, and she doesn’t care who knows it. She doesn’t “do” Christmas, never has, never will. For anyone who believes that everything is “merrier and brighter” during the season, she has a news flash—it’s not any better. Just colder.

Andrew Hawkins has never had a bad Christmas, never understood his best friend’s aversion to it. After all, it’s all about family and togetherness and faith, right? Instead, the faintest twinkle of tinsel or the whiff of evergreen sends Erica into self-imposed exile to watch the latest action movie.

Not this year. This year, Andrew is on a mission to find Erica’s Christmas spirit.

With him.

Even if he has to drag her, kicking and screaming.

This book has been previously published.

Warning: A woman who’s soured on seasonal fun, and the man who wants to break through her anti-holiday heart.

All it takes is faith, trust, and fairy dust. A swift kick never hurts, either.

Christy is due for retirement from her fairy godmother gig, but she agrees to take one last case. Helping Roark Turner find his perfect girl shouldn’t be much of a challenge—after all, she is a veteran fairy godmother.

What makes this case interesting? She must use as little magic as possible to bring Roark his much-desired Happily Ever After.

Roark’s perfect match is his best friend Stephanie Bowers. It should be simple to bring two people together who have been best friends since kindergarten, and let their free will take its course. It probably would have been, too, if Cupid hadn’t started shooting arrows into Roark, forcing the mortal to fall in love.

Now Christy must use every skill at her command—just not her magic—to thwart Cupid’s meddling and get Roark and Stephanie together without changing their free will or ruining her perfect record. Or she’ll never get her own Happily Ever After.

Warning: Magic, fairy godmothers, a rambunctious god, and two stubborn people who need a kick in the butt to see what’s obviously meant to be.

Length: Novel

Love will be the death of him. 

Felicia Hunter earned herself the nickname Leeza early in life, and well as the reputation for being a klutz. How she landed a job in a glass store was a miracle. The bigger miracle is the mysterious designer who brings in the most beautiful glasswork she’d ever seen. Little does she know, he’s an Immortal Knight Templar.

Sir Liam has spent the last 700 years as a Knight Templar, faithful to the Balance Mandate. His charge is to protect humans from all manner mythical creatures. In the past 24 years, he’s become more attached to Leeza than his vows of chastity allow.

The closer Liam gets to Leeza, the more love and need surge through him. His feelings for her bring him to the very edge, but if she pulls him over, he may end up broken.

Content warning, this story contains unbounded passion, a little bite-and-bleed love action and a Knight to die for.
