Cursed to live alone, fated to be blood-bound …

After being trapped in the HeartsBlood Gem for almost 3000 years, Ilia Silvia is pissed. She’ll never be so needy or naive to trust the Gods again. Once she’s finished helping Korinna and Tamuel, the witch and the cupid who freed her, she plans on finding a way to take her revenge on those who betrayed, trapped and used her.

But first, she must separate her life-force from Dawn, the baby who made her corporeal with her powers, and help find long-lost God Triptolemus who seems to be at the heart of the cure for all that ails her. The trouble is, he’s a God – or something like it – and she hates Gods with a vengeance. Even worse, she’s been having sexy dreams about him and wants to give into them. The Fates really do hate her!

Trip O’Dem has lived without a memory for over 2000 years. All he knows about himself is that he enjoys farming, is immortal, and can grow things with his blood. It’s been a lonely existence, until he sees the angel in his dreams. Sexy dreams that come day or night. Dreams that indicate she is the answer to the mystery of who he is.

Problem? There is a fury inside her so great it threatens to swallow them all whole.

A curse revealed. A cabal of traitors. An epiphany of redemption and triumph.

Tricked into traveling to the Department of Magical Affairs, Karisa faces the Shadow Master at last. Donovan Tempest reveals not only his plans for the Peacemaker. He also exposes the spy who’s been helping him all along.

Devastated by the awful truth, Karisa’s faced with the terrible choice she feared since the beginning. Either she watches her friends die one by one or she gives in to Tempest’s demands to open the way to her realm.

With no way of knowing if the guilds have united or if there are any survivors back at Takoda University, there’s only one thing to do. Her decision thrusts Karisa, her friends, the Shadow Master, and his most faithful followers into a fateful conclusion. One that’s certain to destroy more than her hopes and dreams.

Then there’s Garrett, who’s become her most heartbreaking choice of all.

Moon Blessed is the fifth and final book in the 5-part story, The Artemis Curse. Parts one through to four ends on a cliffhanger, with the fifth book concluding the tale.

Sword of Darkness
Book 2, Relic Hunters
Keri Arthur
Released: April in audio format

The race to claim Agrona’s Claws continues…

Agrona’s claws—three godly artifacts that, when used together, have the power to either extend darkness or utterly banish it—were deliberately hidden eons ago so that no man or woman would ever again wield them. But nothing stays hidden forever, and the Crown of Shadows was recently unearthed and stolen, despite Bethany Aodhán’s best efforts to stop it.

Now Beth and her brother Lugh must seek out the Sword of Darkness before those intent on destruction can reunite two of the three Claws and unleash chaos.

But even the help of a cranky goddess and two sexy elves might not be enough to save the day… or the world itself.

Because the forces of darkness are gathering momentum, and its origin lies closer to home than any of them guessed.

In a reservation where magic has been unrestrained for entirely too long, there is no rest from the wicked...

After dealing with the fallout of a shape-shifting, fire-throwing demon, Lizzie, Belle, and Aiden are hoping the reservation will finally catch a break from the constant influx of evil. Those hopes are quickly dashed when Lizzie comes across the scent of evil and tracks it back to the clean-picked bones of a man.

As it quickly becomes obvious that this is not a one-off situation and there's now a demon with a taste for human flesh on the reservation, another problem arises in the form of a White Lady-a ghost not only seeking bloody revenge, but demanding Belle's assistance to get it.

And she won't take no for an answer.

But the greatest threat of all might be the witch who is a magical bloodhound. A witch who's been sent to the reservation by one Clayton Marlowe...

Lizzie's husband.

Can two lost souls complete one another?

Damaris Trant has never been alone…until now. Not only is he stuck on planet Earth, his six Strazanian comrades—rares with special powers just like him—are scattered around the city of New Faxian like confetti to avoid an enemy that has already wiped out the rest of their species. Damaris doesn’t even know if his comrades are still alive since landing on Earth.
Despite his purple scale coloring making him a lower caste, his rare powers, which had elevated his standing on his planet Strazan, are now erratic at best. Add to that the memories of his deceased family, and he’s rendered even more powerless.
Then he meets Callie, and his already topsy-turvy life is turned upside down. She’s an addict who sees things differently. That she doesn’t find Damaris abnormal is beyond appealing to his peace of mind. If only she didn’t also see him as just another man without a conscience.

After Callie Trueberry lost her family to a house fire, she fell into a dysfunctional world of her own making. Chemicals and alcohol might decay her mind, but at least she’s no longer half-mad with grief. Then she stumbles into Damaris and wishes she was the woman she used to be, a woman who would have turned his head and perhaps even won his heart. He is everything she’s ever wanted in a man, their shared grief binding them closer still. But will he stand by her side as she cleans her body and her mind while enemies are hunting him down, or will he be lost to her forever?

Trials of Dusk and Dreams
Book 2, Fae Devils
Lana Pecherczyk

Nothing is as it seems in the Court of Dreams, least of all the Nightmares.

It’s the first in the Fae Devils series, a Fae Guardians spinoff.

It is recommended for mature readers due to language, violence, horror, and explicit sexual and dark situations.

Scarred by a harrowing attack during her final year at university, she falls into the familiar, nursing both her body and her trust in all that she once believed in.

Desperate for a pursuit that will fill the days as she recovers, and eager to escape the shadows of her past, Catriona stumbles upon a hidden family legacy. Her father's relentless research of their ancestors, the O'Byrne brothers—Thomas and Samuel—leads her on a journey through time and Catriona begins to uncover family secrets.

In the nineteenth century, two siblings faced a life-altering choice: to abandon their ancestral farm in County Kerry or remain and endure the relentless struggle of famine. As Catriona unearths the layers of history, a gripping family saga unfolds. Thomas’s pursuit of success along the Darling River stands in stark contrast to Samuel’s arduous battle to adapt to a foreign land. Hidden resentments festered, and Catriona is surprised to uncover the existence of a third brother who did not emigrate with Thomas and Samuel.

For a century and a half, silence has shrouded their Irish kin, but Catriona becomes captivated by the whispered betrayals of the past and Samuel's tenacious fight for survival. As she immerses herself in the stories of their forbears, she uncovers a multitude of secrets.

Three university friends arrive unannounced at the sheep station, and Catriona is confronted by a betrayal that threatens not only her newfound peace but her very survival.

In her confusion, where past and present collide, can Catriona navigate their sad family history and learn who she can trust before it’s too late?

A riveting tale of resilience, secrets, and the unbreakable bonds of family, where betrayal and survival hang in the balance.

One sadistic madman substituted by another.

That’s what happened when I escaped from the don of the O’Malley mafia only to be captured by Valentino Barone, deadly enforcer of the Agostino mobster family. I didn’t think I could hate anyone more than the don who damaged me, until Valentino takes away my freedom yet again and awakens my darkest desires, ones I never knew existed. Escape seems futile. But I did it once I can do it again—or die trying.

I was sent to find and kill Chantilly Alcott, fugitive lover of the don of a rival mafia who is desperate to find her. Ending her life and sending pieces of her body to the O’Malley family isn’t something that should bother me—it never has before—so why my reluctance to do my job? I will do it, eventually. For now, I hold her captive and tell myself I’ll break her spirit instead of her body.
So why is she slowly breaking me, instead?

Expected Release: 31 August

He’s a merciless killer who gets what he wants. He can have me…for a price

When my widowed stepmother kicked me out on the streets when I was sixteen, I was too proud to ask for help from any of my friends. Hunger left me with no choice but to accept money for sex so that I might survive. Four years later I’m not only surviving, I’m thriving. Asked to attend a private party at the Agostinos, a notorious mafia family who are as ruthless and cruel as they are filthy rich and generous, I can’t say no. Then my gaze meets the cold eyes of Serafino, and I’m lost even before he decides he wants all of me…body, mind and soul.

I’m known as a cold-hearted killer without a conscience, the bad boy of the Agostino mafia. That says a lot considering my brothers can be as ruthless as my father had once been, and he’d been a sick and twisted bastard of the highest order. Nonetheless, I have a reputation to uphold. People are afraid of me for good reason. What would they think though if they discovered the call girl who arrived to service the Agostino brothers is the one woman I want all to myself—a woman I would kill to protect—until I’m left with no choice but to kill her myself.

Book 1, Sons of the Sheikh
Expected Release: 31 October

His sting is as lethal as his charm.

Sheikh Aziz Hadi might be a player who knows how to charm the panties off women, but that means very little when the one woman he wants—Zamira Fasih—is also the one woman he can’t have. She’s the daughter of a sheikh from a neighboring country bordering his province. That they’re at war means there is no way he can talk to her, let alone date her. Then he sees her at the markets and he can’t deny the impulse to take what—who—he wants.

Zamira Fasih is not interested in Aziz, at least that’s what she tells herself. He and his family sided with an enemy of her father’s and now her people are paying the ultimate price. The Hadi family are scum, and Aziz is the worst of them. He’s not worthy of her attention, if only she’d stop damn well thinking about him! Then he kidnaps her and expects her to like him—but he’d better think again!
She is promised to another man who will help end the war and the death of her people, and nothing will change her mind. Not even the famous charm Aziz is renowned for.

The above three covers are by Eleni Konstantine's alter ego, HelzKat Designs.

Coven Librarian, Jules Stevens, jokes about being cursed. She’s not a proper powerful Stevens witch but a walking magical disaster. The only thing more chaotic than her power is her love life.
