They can never be together. The notion is laughable. Humans are inferior, a scourge on the Fae and on the magic passed down to them by angels millennia ago. And if Keen finds himself drawn to the tiny human female, he keeps it to himself. He won't add to the half-breed problem that threatens his people's existence.

Reese can't stand Keen. He criticizes her clothing, won't answer a straight question, and is too handsome for her peace of mind.

Her entire life, people have pegged Reese for a shallow, ditzy blond. She won't accept the stereotype from the large, arrogant Fae too. But after Keen saves her life, she begins to question what truly lies beneath his stoic demeanor.

Forced together, Keen and Reese fight to survive among enemies, and Keen makes choices Reese couldn't have predicted. She glimpses a side of him that is protective and dangerously seductive.

But Keen refuses to acknowledge their connection.

Until he's faced with the decision to betray his people, or lose Reese forever.

Some love stories require great sacrifice...

Humans are beneath her kind, but Fae princess Theodora Rainer must escape the Fae realm, or marry a man she despises.

California farmer Alex Rosales is the responsible one. He stays out of the trouble his older brother gets into--someone has to hang onto the farm. But when Alex finds Theodora hiding out on his property, caution is nowhere in sight. She has the beauty of an angel, with deep secrets Alex can't penetrate.

No matter how hard he tries, Theodora won't let Alex in. But when he breaks his own rules and invites her to stay with him, he glimpses her heart--only to discover something powerful seeks to tear them apart.

Fates Altered tells the story of the love that sparked the Halven Rising.
