Author: Devin Harnois

Devin Harnois has several published novels and he’d have more if he spent less time on Twitter and playing Dragon Age. Most of his books involve magic, monsters, and hope. They're also getting progressively more queer. He collects skull items and only a strong will prevents his apartment from being overrun by them.

In second grade he wrote his first story, a romance about two mice falling in love. He still has the original draft.

Devin lives in Minneapolis.

Leander Weatherford doesn’t want a mage, but he needs one. Enchanted mechanical animals are all the rage among the upper classes and selling them will save his struggling family business. Enter Jak, whose enchanting ability is second only to his talent for flirting. It’s dangerous to keep such a tempting man close, but Leander can’t resist—in more ways than one.

Jak needs money to continue his aimless life of running. A partnership with Leander provides both income and a lovely diversion. Their masterful creations catch the attention of an eccentric baroness, who offers them a huge sum for an ambitious project—a full scale mechanical dragon.

Swept up into a life rubbing elbows with nobility, Leander is pleased but overwhelmed. Spending both work days and evenings with Jak, he finds himself drawing closer to the charming mage.

But Jak is hiding a dangerous secret, and the truth could tear them apart.

He used to fight monsters. Now he is one.

Claire Scarlotti has been fighting the nasties for years, but it hasn’t seemed to have made a dent. She hopes that volunteering for a secret project will not only make a difference, but gain her the recognition she craves.

But her new partner is going to be difficult. Especially at night, when he turns into a nasty. But nasty or human, she has to be able to trust him. If she can’t…well, her finger is never far from the trigger.

Victor Monroe volunteered to test a vaccine and ended up a monster. Half-nasty and half-human, he can’t always control his actions—or his desires. His first instinct is to drive Claire away to protect her. Until he discovers her touch is the human connection he desperately needs to tame his monster.

Now they must prove that Victor and others like him could be a valuable weapon against the nightmarish creatures that roam the world. If they can’t, they’ll be worse than failures. They’ll be dead.

Warning: Contains monsters, violence, a kick-ass heroine, a hero on the edge of sanity, lab experiments gone wrong, unexpected tenderness and safe sex that involves chains.

Emma Gillard is running from her family and herself. She sees the magic inside her as a curse, and with good reason. Any witch discovered in her home town is hunted down and burned at the stake.

When Captain Zeke Donovan rescues Emma from a crashed airship, one touch ignites a spark of magic in him - magic he'd thought lost forever. She's his only hope of getting it back, and convincing her magic is a gift is hard enough before she finds out he's a pirate.

Then they find themselves in danger with evil wizards, and trusting each other is the only way they’re going to get out alive.

Letting her live was bad enough. Wanting her is much worse.

Richard Everson has seen too many people die, killed by the nightmare creatures that have overrun the world. Every night he leaves the protection of the walled city to hunt the nasties alone. He likes his job. Maybe a little too much.

By day, Jennifer lives in her human skin. By night, the wolf takes over, a legacy forced upon her by the nasties who made her one of them. Everson is a tenuous link to what’s left of the human world. Despite the danger to them both, she hungers for his touch.

Each encounter sends the heat spiraling higher, until it burns away all control. And Richard realizes too late his heart has crossed a line punishable by death…

Warning: This book contains strong language, nightmarish creatures, a violence-loving hero, a very naked woman, werewolves, forbidden desire, and post-aocalyptic monster-killing mayhem.
