The proverbial prosecuting junkie, Aiden Pierce’s sole purpose in life is to convict the guilty and make sure they get what they deserve. He has little interest in his supernatural abilities and past, until a persistent internal fire begins to dog his every waking moment.
When his mentor the Chief Prosecuting Attorney of Seattle is found murdered in his home, and the only person of interest, seems to escalate that unnatural fire within him, Aiden is forced to confront his mysterious past and burgeoning powers, before his career goes up in flames.
Sonja Walker has been her own woman ever since she escaped the brutality of a powerful man thirteen years ago. Running a high end and discreet professional escort service, Sonja has achieved independence from all men. That is until a past lover, and dear friend, is murdered, and she becomes the prime suspect. As her world unravels around her, the police and the prosecuting office’s scrutiny not only serve to threaten her livelihood, but the puzzling and potent attraction she has to the assistant PA, Aiden Pierce, just might undo her completely.
As they try to ignore the simmering passion between them, Aiden and Sonja find themselves drawn into a battle against an undeniable evil, ultimately leading them through the jungles of Los Angeles and Guatemala to an ancient sect that has been fighting evil since a time before the Mayans. In a race against time, Aiden must embrace his legacy before he loses the one thing that has become more important to him than his career...or his life.

Melissa shouldn’t even want Riley, but she can’t seem to stay away, especially when she finds in him everything that’s missing in her relationship with Jonathan.
Melissa knows she has to make a hard choice, and when it comes to choosing between the life she’s always wanted and the man she’s falling in love with, she might find out that she can’t have the best of both worlds.

When Jacob Porter was a child, he watched a group of vampires kill his best friend, and he vowed to destroy them all. Now, years later, while on the trail of a demon-possessed murderer, he meets the mysterious Nyla Katt, a gorgeous, violet-eyed huntress who claims to be after the same killer he’s hunting. Jake doesn't play well with others, and has enough on his plate to deal with without the beautiful, sword-wielding hellcat pushing all his buttons while driving him wild with desire. Yet, there's something familiar about the woman that he just can't put his finger on.
Nyla has been Jake’s guardian for over half his life, but he onlyknows her as the black cat he found in the alley the night his friend was killed. She saved his life that night, and now they must work together to keep each other alive and fulfill a destiny planned for them long before either of them were born. But if Jake realizes the woman he has fallen in love with is not only the cat he's been telling his secrets to for years, but one of the very creatures he hunts relentlessly, he will kill her before their destiny can be fulfilled . . .

Erotic Paranormal M/M Romantic Suspense Novella
Detective Nicola Dupré is back at work after a six-month sick leave, but he's still haunted by his sister's tragic death. When Captain Moore gives him an unofficial undercover assignment to befriend the sexy, charming Nero Thorn, the erotic writer Nicola idolizes, he quickly accepts. He thinks it's an easy job until he gets to know the mysterious BDSM author. Overwhelming emotions he can't explain draw him ever closer to Nero.
Nero Thorn's a recluse and he likes it that way. When he literally bumps into his shy, handsome new neighbor, Nicola Dupré, sparks fly. He's drawn to Nicola like a moth to a fire and he quickly falls in love. But he has a dark, dangerous secret he's kept hidden from the world for years. If Nicola ever finds out who he really is, he'll run away in fear.
There's a serial killer out there, and the murder of his sixth victim was written in Nero's last novel before it ever happened. There's a connection between Nero, the sixth victim, and the killer, and Nicola has to figure it out before the killer strikes again.
