The Cure

Recently trained healer Marilou Larkswallow has done the impossible and created a cure for blue fever. Lukas the Next, the newest generation of Aasguard warrior, has been tasked with preventing evil sorcerers from harming Marilou before she perfects this miraculous cure.

Marilou is not convinced she needs a bodyguard, especially not the one she’s had a girlhood crush on. Despite her new adult attraction to Lukas, she is well aware that healers do not marry. She and Lukas are also so young…

Meanwhile, Lukas is struggling with reconciling the hoyden of their youth with this confident, skilled young healer. Besides, they are far too young to commit to each other. Even if she as a healer can marry. Then there are the constant sorcerer attacks on Marilou. Can he stay focused on keeping her alive and healthy or will he fail his first task?

Shifter Secrets is here!

Independent Kinsley Jacobs is an unusual predatory marine shifter who is too busy at her new job as an agent for Oceanic Shift to worry about love. She’s helping her work partner accept her overwhelming beast and they’re closing cases at rapid rates. Debriefings on said cases means she has to appear unfazed and professional in front of her dreamy boss, who isn’t her fated mate, right? Surely her beast would know…

Older than he’d like to admit Maclaren “Mac” Atlas has been waiting for his mate for decades. He’s trying to stay strong, but gorgeous Kinsley keeps distracting him. Between hunting bad guys, kidnappings, and an internal spy, Mac doesn’t have time to fall in love. Besides, who he falls in love with depends on his beast, not on his strong attraction to a certain agent who works for him. At least he keeps telling himself that.

The Geek Snags the Fashion Designer

Blind dates don’t always go as planned. Fashion designer Katelyn Barstow, a veteran blind dater, knows all too well. When her date with the first geek she’s ever dated goes phenomenally well, she’s suspicious. Dating is rife with questionable men, boring dinners, and longings to be back home, cleaning the toilet. They always tank before the second date.

Geeky Derek Collins might be adept in computer languages, but women baffle him. He has an adorable dog, an amazing fixer upper house, and a successful business. He doesn’t need a woman. Don’t they complicate life? Yet when he meets equally successful Katelyn, his sister’s boyfriend’s stunning friend from college, he wonders if he should reboot his thinking.

As they embark on a whirlwind relationship their nearest and dearest tease them mercilessly about, in the back of their minds both wonder how this can work. Because, oh yeah, forgot to mention, they live in two different cities in two different states. Love has raised the stakes, but they have a geography problem.

The Heir

Emma the Petite might be small, but she is all Aasguard. An experienced warrior of over a thousand years she is confident in her abilities. She fools herself into believing the only thing she lacks is knowledge of her family history.

Mozark is a mage feeling his long years. He has traveled the land for over a millennium learning about other places and cultures. He is seeking a home but fears the urge to move on will triumph. Soon Emma and Mozark realize they have missed a few critical things. Such as Emma has an unknown family member who needs her dead so he can be the legendary Heir. Emma and Mozark also develop feelings for each other. But an Aasguard and a mage cannot marry. Or can they?

Okay, so said commanding officer took a couple bullets and their boat sank. Now they’re facing near hurricane conditions, a stormy sea, limited fuel, and her commanding officer is going to die if they don’t hustle him to safety soon.
