My name is Lucy Lyons and am an avid reader of novels, I had loads of time on my hands when I retired six years ago and starting writing.I have two sons, one has his own store which he also manages and the younger is finishing his degree at McMaster University this year.
I thoroughly enjoy traveling to other countries and exploring other cultures. I have traveled to Asia, the Middle East, most of the Caribbean and most recently Italy. Travelling allows me to be more creative in my writing as I experience meeting many people of different cultures.
Clay’s getting used to being gone from the Venatores lamiae, the vampire hunters that turned him into the werewolf he is now. That doesn’t mean he wants to be the boss of anything, especially not the Alpha for the largest wolf pack on the west coast. But, if that’s what it takes to keep the current pack leader alive, then he’ll fight, and he’ll win. She’s outmatched by her challengers, and undermined by the spies within the pack but Ashlynn is as resourceful as she is beautiful. She may drive him crazy for her lack of judgment and temperament, but he can’t deny his primal draw to her, and his beast yearns to claim her as much as the man.
With the pack divided and Clay’s friends from his old life in danger, he must learn to be open to the possibility of magic within. With old friends and new, he just might be able to save his new people, and claim the spoils of victory, the power of the alpha wolf, and the woman he has denied himself for so long.
Nicholas and Caroline are struggling with their bond, as their personalities begin to merge. They know that the vampire queen was banished to eternal sleep eons ago, but not where, or how. Caroline is sure that where she is, will be the power necessary to complete the spell that will keep Nick sane and able to lead their people
Dominique has a secret of her own, buried under Stonehenge. Her interest in reviving the queen is to serve her own ends. Once they wake the sleeping queen, they will either have the wedding Caroline has been patiently waiting for, or the nightmare that the council has warned vampires of will come true.
But the sleeping queen is not the enemy they fear, and the fairytale ending that Caroline thought she could never have, is now within reach, even if it is bittersweet.
Caroline has taken on the mantle of human servant to Nicholas, and they are living together under Pulse, the nightclub they inherited when they defeated the former master of Seattle. When Caroline stumbles across stranger, who knows all about the Venatores and her training with them, she lets down her guard and mistakenly gives the council emissary entrance to her new home.
His master’s power is the stuff of nightmares too, as Caroline soon learns to her detriment. The loyalty of the wolves is tested, as is Nicholas’ patience with Caroline as she strives to prove to the council that they aren’t a threat. However, she returned from the desert of Arizona with a new, remarkable power. If the council or the Venatores find out, it would be an immediate death sentence for her. But, can she share her secret, and possibly her greatest magical power of all, with the vampire that she loves?
Caroline is technically the servant of Nicholas, the Master vampire who reigns over the west coast of the United States. In reality, she’s too powerful in her own right to be forced into a submissive role. Instead, Nicholas has made her his emissary. In Arizona, she faces a danger long thought to be extinct. She needs to trade her services as a sorceress, and those of the werewolves who follow her, for an antidote she desperately needs to save one of Nicholas’ clan. With the power of the werewolves, and the secrets of the Zuni master vampire and her human servant, they face the terrifying night dweller Uhepono.
Only by victory can they save Rachel from the poison that is slowly driving her mad. But in challenging the Uhepono, Caroline risks losing not only her power, but her life and the lives of the shape shifters who depend on her. It will take all the power Caroline has amassed to survive, and possibly more. But if she completes the blood ritual with Nicholas, she’s terrified of what she will lose in return for the power to save her new people.
Life is dangerous for Caroline at her home with the Venatores. She’s officially a new Watcher of the Venatores. The title comes with the responsibility to preserve the Venatores treaties with vampire-kind, but there are hunters who don’t want peace. They’re ready and waiting for a war between the species, and doing everything they can to speed its arrival.
In her own life, Nicholas wants her to leave with him and allow her power to bloom to its full potential. Her heart aches to go with him, while her sense of honor has forced her to stay and fight for her place among the Venatores Lamiae sorceresses.
When the Venatores are visited by another master vampire who demands that Caroline gives her an animal to call like Nicholas and his rats, she refuses and her best friend is mortally wounded, the Venatores irreparably divided, and her fate sealed. She must kill the Master of Seattle for her crimes against the Venatores and Nicholas’ vampires. But in doing so, she may cross a line that separates her from the Venatores forever.
Ahead of her lies a future unlike any the Venatores Lamiae allowed her to imagine. With each growth spurt of her power, it becomes harder to deny Nicholas the final vampire bond. It’s the choice between eternal life as a vampire servant, or the slow decay that comes from refusing to give up the last bit of her humanity. But a danger greater than any she’s ever known is on the horizon, and her humanity might be the price she’s forced to pay, to save everyone she loves.
Eighteen-year-old Caroline is about to graduate from the Venatores lamiae high school. A year ago, the vampires she spent her life fearing kidnapped her and she learned they’re not as evil as she was taught. When Los Angeles, home of the master vampire Nicholas, suffers a rash of grotesque murders, the Venatores blame the vampires, but Caroline knows they’re innocent of the vicious crimes.
When Caroline warns Nicholas of the impending attack from the hunters, he in turn tells her about were-animals who once existed alongside vampires. Animals with supernatural strength and hunger hunted the vampires in a hundred-year war that supposedly left the were-population extinct, and almost destroyed the vampires.
Together, Caroline and Nicholas work to solve the mystery of who, or what, is killing the innocent. When Caroline becomes a target of an assassination plot of her as well, it is Nicholas who must save her. But, the healing comes at a price. Nicholas wants her to belong to him, and offers her almost unlimited power and immortality. But, to achieve what he desires she must turn her back on everyone she cares about in the society of hunters.
Caroline is once again presented with a choice between her fellow humans who fear and betray her, or the master vampire that consumes her thoughts, even in her dreams.
Caroline has been a ward of the Venatores lamiae (vampire hunters) ever since a vampire brutally murdered her parents in front of her as a toddler. On vacation with David, her best friend and secret crush, Caroline gets separated from her friends. All alone, she’s overpowered and kidnapped by a vampire to serve as a gift to his master.
Terrified at first that her fate will be the same as her parents, Caroline slowly comes to realize not all vampires are as deadly as Venatores have taught her. The master is genteel and kind. Despite his great power, he lets her speak freely and teaches her about the secret pact between their peoples.
Caroline learns to question the hate that has fueled her all her life, but, also discovers that David has been taken. Not protected by Nicholas, he’s been tortured by the same vampire that took her, the master’s own brother. For her, there is no choice. David is her brother and her best friend. She offers herself freely. No longer as a prisoner, but a willing student of the master, she faces the Venatores when they invade the master’s lair.
Her love for her people makes her a willing sacrifice to save them all. But, her growing affection for Nicholas, Master of the City, gives her the strength to face her own unique power. She must make a choice between the lives she is offered. Now, with growing faith in her own abilities and the ardor of a master vampire, the choice she makes will be her own.
