In an arctic world of magic and monsters, three powerful women face their deepest fears…and find their truest loves.

Inaluk’s Curse

The tribes are facing the fiercest battle in their history, and the last thing the chieftain’s daughter wants to do is recruit warriors from a village rumored to be cursed with cowardice. But when she meets the muscular blacksmith, Otuku, all of her preconceptions are shattered. Can Inaluk’s love for this man allow her to embrace her shaman powers and save her people?

Za’lla’s Dream

When the chieftain’s son helps her, she realizes the man she’s only admired from afar is enamored with her. As she faces the memories of a traumatic childhood, will the wall of ice around her heart melt so she can accept his love?

Then a stranger comes to her village, and she must rely on this mysterious man, Manuk, to help save Alloc from certain death.

A duchess under an evil spell... A shape-shifter determined to uncover the secret of it... Enter a Victorian world where magic is real and love is a passionate adventure. In a world where magic ruled everything, Felicity Seymour couldn't perform even the simplest spell. If she didn't pass her testing, she'd lose her duchy--and any hope of marriage. But one man didn't seem to mind her lack of dowry: a darkly delicious baronet who had managed to scare away the rest of London's Society misses. Sir Terence Blackwell knew the enchanting woman before him wasn't entirely without magic. Not only could she completely disarm him with her gorgeous lavendar eyes and frank candor, but his were-lion senses could smell a dark power on her--the same kind of relic magic that had killed his brother. Was she using it herself, or was it being used against her? One needed a husband, and the other needed answers. But only together could they find the strongest magic of all: true love.
