The Charmed is Christine's debut novel and every page is a true labor of love, reflecting the literary daydreamer she has become. She lives in the scenic Pacific Northwest where she enjoys hiking, camping and photographing many of the wonderful places that served as inspiration for her Charmed Trilogy ... especially on a cold rainy day.
One night. . . One violent supernatural battle
And five stories of the men whose lives
will be changed by it.
Kane, Brethren Guardian and one of the few Natural Shape-Shifters left in existence, survived the bloody battle of Brahm Hill but lost two of his closest friends. For all of his good-natured sarcasm and eye-popping good looks, Kane finds himself unable to completely forget about that night, so he seeks comfort in the one thing he is truly good at . . . sex!
This shape-shifting bad boy believes in having a good time—a very good time, usually involving some mingled heavy breathing with a sexy Dhampir in a tiny closet somewhere. But when he’s sent into the freezing tundra of the Northwest Territories to investigate a troublesome supernatural being on the loose, he ends up crossing paths with a woman who almost instantly drives him insane with want . . . because she doesn’t seem to be falling for the shifter’s charms.
It’s completely inexplicable.
Skye Matthews has a job to do, and she needs to be focused on that, not spending all her time rebuffing the advances of this way-too-cocky and handsome stranger. Yet, there is something irresistible about this self-involved playboy that Skye can’t seem to stay away from. And when the unidentified Kane is sent to investigate takes an unnatural interest in her, protecting her becomes the Guardian’s top priority.
But… can Kane save Skye from a supernatural being no one has ever encountered before?
In The Charmed—Book One of The Charmed Trilogy—Olivia Ann Greyson sees only one future for herself—to compose and perform the music she has loved since she was a child. But that future changes in an instant when a commuter train taking her to the city crashes and is attacked by, unbelievably, a coven of vampires! As the rabid creatures feed their thirst on the surviving passengers, Olivia is spared from an unthinkable fate because of the intervention of another vampire—Caleb Wolfe, a figure from her past who, for reasons he doesn’t understand himself, would do anything to protect her. After one familiar touch, Olivia recognizes the man behind the vampire. Soon love, and a powerful supernatural connection, begins to grow between them. But with that connection Olivia starts to notice starling changes happening within herself, and violent events make it clear that the vampire coven which wanted her the night of the train crash won’t stop until they have her. Time is running out for Olivia and Caleb to discover why all this is happening. And the answers they find may painfully tear their new love apart.
"It was the blood! The blood was somehow doing this to me!" Olivia Ann Greyson is a Charmer, a Dhampir with the power to lure the supernatural world's most dangerous of creatures, and she's in an impossible situation. She must leave behind Caleb Wolfe, the strong, protective vampire she has fallen madly in love with, in order to learn how to protect herself from the vampires, shifters and demons that will be drawn to her for the rest of her life. Human Guardian, Alec Lambert, has been assigned to see to Olivia's training by the organization he belongs to, which is known simply as The Brethan. He takes Olivia to the group's stronghold in the mountainous regions of Alberta, Canada, where she discovers the answers to her family's painful past and the extent to which those hunting her will go to capture her. But she also uncovers many secrets and even more questions about the mysterious group she has trusted to protect her secrets that will have her fighting to get back to the man she left behind. ...but will it be too late?
"You think you know him better than I do? Interesting ...and so boringly human." Over a year has passed since Olivia Ann Greyson discovered that she is a Charmer, a Dhampir fated to be part of the violent supernatural world that surrounds our human one. In that time, she has strengthened herself physically, learned of her family's secret past, and formed a deep and abiding love with the strongest man she has ever met, Daywalker Caleb Wolfe. But Olivia's biggest challenge still lives ahead of her... Dark vampire lord Luther Davin has been obsessed with capturing Olivia so he can use her special gifts for his own reasons. As Caleb and Olivia try to make a new life together with their coven, the Nightwalker's attempts to capture her only intensify and inadvertently bring an unwelcome visitor from Caleb's past barging back into his life. She is Caelestis--Celeste to the modern world--and she claims to be Caleb's first and rightful mate. Although Olivia has grown confident and secure in her relationship with Celeb, she soon realizes that Celeste sees herself as no less than a goddess among mere mortals and will stop at nothing to get Caleb back, which means Olivia herself must die! When these two threats collide and fate steps in to pull Olivia away from her new family, will she be ready for her darkest hour and her greatest battle?
