Tami Lund is a wine drinker and a lover of romance. She writes happily ever afters, one book at a time.
The bad guys are winning.
There are two types of shifters in the world: Rakshasa--the bad guys who want to destroy the world—and Light Ones—the good guys who want to protect it.
Lily's one of the good guys, the last of her kind, the only one who can save their species.
She's also a 170-year-old virgin who isn't in a hurry to get tied down. And then she meets Matteo, a Rakshasa who has been a prisoner of the Fates for a thousand years. They should be mortal enemies. She shouldn't strike up a friendship with the man. She certainly shouldn't develop feelings for him. And while we're listing don'ts, she definitely shouldn't give the man her most precious commodity: her innocence.
Because otherwise who's going to save humanity?
What happens when your neighbor hires you a stripper?
It starts one hell of a prank war. A war that involves goats, phallic chandeliers, stolen kisses in the rain, strawgasms, and eating out on the kitchen counter.
A war that could damn well involve two hearts and a plan. Her plan doesn’t involve falling in love. His life doesn’t involve plans.
This could be a problem.
My sister has disappeared into the shadowy vampire world of Blood Courtesans, where blood and sex are money, and humans are sold to the highest bidder.
I’m Anya, and I hate vampires. They killed my aunt. And now they’ve stolen my sister. I can’t let her die, so I head to Chicago to track her down.
Before I can find her, I’m assaulted by two human thugs, and of all the luck, a vampire comes to my rescue. Cam is sexy as sin with an accent that melts panties, and he hasn’t eaten in far too long. And now he's offering to help track down my sister… no strings attached.
Brandon Haines hates Fates. As far as he’s concerned, they serve no good purpose.
Even Prim. She’s sex and candy walking, and he may not be able to get her out of his head, but that doesn’t mean he’s going to do anything about it.
Except now he needs her.
Because Gavin Rowan’s curse has been lifted, and Prim is the only one who can re-curse him. Otherwise, Brandon’s whole damn species will be annihilated.

Jack is an FBI agent, a playboy, a man who is happy tasting the flavor of the month and not staying for breakfast.

When she was just eighteen, Julia Lee found her true love. The very idea of committing to forever at such a young age frightened her so badly that she did the only logical thing she could think of: she ran away.
Shortly before Julia graduated from college, she realized she was ready for the forever that Sam had promised. But she was too late; due to circumstances out of her control, Sam married another. So Julia moved half way across the country, to try to heal her broken heart.
Five years later, Julia made a career move that resulted in her moving back into town, and back into Sam’s life. He was divorced, but this time, Julia was involved in a relationship, her first serious one since Sam, and she was too afraid to give it up for what she’d once lost. Each time their paths crossed, it became harder and harder for Sam and Julia to resist their feelings: a love so intense, it virtually took Julia’s breath away any time she was near Sam.
Just as they finally bowed to destiny and would seemingly live their lives happily ever after, an unforeseen event, spurred by Julia’s ex-boyfriend, threatens to tear them apart again, possibly forever. Can Julia find her way out of danger, and back to the only man she's ever loved, the one she'd already nearly lost too many times?
