The Four Houses of Magic—light-seeking fae, blood-fueled vampires, loyal werewolves, and power-driven witches—barely survived a century of conflict. Now they exist divided, bound by a single promise: never The Four shall meet.
That rule has just been broken.
Heir to a brutal legacy, witch Rose LeFey is determined to confront her aunt and prove she’s finished with blood magic. Instead, she finds the basement full of prisoners: a sarcastic vampire staked to a table; a beautiful, defiant fae princess in an iron cage; and an insanely attractive werewolf chained to the wall.
He’s massive, covered in fur, and furious at being held captive.
She can’t look away—even if she should.
Contact between the Houses is strictly forbidden. But Rose can’t leave any of them at her aunt’s mercy.
Except the werewolf is a trap. As soon as Rose touches him, a mate-bond snaps between them. Curses. She walked right into a spell designed to tear apart her self control—and drive her straight into her aunt’s clutches. Her aunt has unleashed war on the magical Houses and humans alike—and she wants Rose’s magic at her side.
To stop her, Rose must risk everything and strike a bargain with the former captives. Tricky, as the vampire wants revenge, the fae to save her mother’s life, and the werewolf to protect his pack at all costs.
Yet working together might not be enough. Not when the true threat might be Rose’s deadly powers and her growing desire to make the false-bond real.
One Great Dane
And a zombie above the rest.
Jane Finch wishes her problems ended with a bad commute and no coffee. But when she and her beloved Great Dane, Schrodinger, emerge from a locked room they discover a city changed for the undead.
Zombies are everywhere. Some are endlessly cycling through their last actions, others have turned feral—and hungry. Jane and Schroddie’s best chance for survival? Reaching her parents’ bunker on the city’s north shore.
Not an easy commute on foot—when surrounded by zombies.
Dodging stray bullets and feral zombies is one thing. But soon Jane realizes one of the zombies is following her. Built like a tank, silent as the grave, his attention never waivers. Wherever she goes, he’s there. If she hides, he finds her. There’s no fighting him, no escape.
He’s not like the others—and he might be Jane’s only hope for survival.
The challenge of sharing close quarters with a zombie gets even more complicated when Jane tells her parents about her new arrangement—and they've got a surprise for her, too. Staying in the bunker isn't an option, because the Americans are threatening to nuke the entire area. Grey is regaining pieces of his humanity, but a rescue team won’t trust him. Or make space for her Great Dane, Schroddie. And Jane won't leave either of them behind.
Rescue or not, Jane, Schroddie and Grey have to get out of the blast radius.
A stolen car and an overprotective zombie get her and Schroddie all the way to the forward base—a base they find overrun with zombies. She grows closer with Grey and the lines of their relationship blur. She knows they'll survive as long as they're together—then Jane and Schroddie are kidnapped by power-hungry insurgents.
Grey will follow.
He will get Jane back.
Even if it means unleashing the monster inside him.
The Four Houses of Magic walk together once again. After a thousand years of separation, a witch, a werewolf, a fae and a vampire stood at the gates of the fae city and defeated a rising darkness. Yet the threat isn’t over, and the true danger lies buried much deeper…
Rose LeFey wishes the darkness ended with her aunt, but it rages on—the conspiracy behind her aunt’s rampage and the shadowy figures who aided that carnage. Not to mention Rose’s own burning desire to use her reclaimed blood magic.
Worst of all, the forbidden bond she shares with the werewolf Dar is growing stronger.
The trail leads Rose, her allies, and the werewolf she wants more than anything to the one place she absolutely can’t touch him: home. New Orleans.
But the center of witch governance in North America is not the city she left.
Ancient barriers crumble. Vampires rampage through the streets. And witches betray each other for power.
Bloody hex. These curses won’t stay dead.
As the witch council claws for control, they turn their blame on Rose’s blood magic and her illegal alliance. In the face of growing condemnation, Rose and Dar grow closer—dangerously so—and uncover secrets long buried.
As hidden enemies draw close, Rose and her friends discover the conspiracy runs deeper than they’d imagined—all the way into the grave.
Dear Miss Penelope Essex, on account of your unforgivably bookish ways and abysmal attempts at conversation, Her Majesty has deemed your Season a failure. With no marriage proposals, no dowry and no prospects, you are hereby ordered to attend The Monsters Ball.
Confirmed wallflower Penelope Essex has every intention of tending her brother’s library for the rest of her days. But first, she must survive the Monsters Ball.
Held at a remote gothic estate, the three-day ball is rife with monstrous nobles all determined to claim a mate. They’ll do whatever it takes to seduce her into hidden corners, to tempt her into signing a marriage contract. Escaping with her spinsterhood intact seems impossible, until she spots her childhood crush: the now monstrous Duke of Warick.
Lord William Roth is normally as cool as the cold fire covering his body. When he became a frost-flame demon, he swore he’d never take a mate. Yet when he sees Penny Essex struggling to resist three monstrous nobles, he rushes to her side and pretends to be her fiancé.
A fake betrothal is the perfect cover. Except the longer they’re together, the more she wants his fire to claim her. But will her duke treasure her heart and her beloved books, or will their passion send them both up in flames?
The Four Houses descend into chaos, and two unlikely heroes—a human nurse and a vampire mercenary—are trapped in the depths. Pawns in a bigger game. Predator and prey. Unless they defy their natures and change the fate of their worlds.
All Laine O’Callaghan wants with New Orleans is to locate the thief that stole from her and reclaim her family’s heirlooms. Then the Irishwoman’s bus is attacked and she’s kidnapped by vampires. Bleeding vampires!
Monsters are real, and her thief is their boss.
Now she’s trapped in an underground lair, being offered up as a prize to the strongest fighter.
Vampire Mitrick Black is missing an eye, an arm, and a chunk of his leg—and he won’t back down from a fight. Brutally injured, the gun-for-hire has one chance to survive: reclaim his position at his evil employer’s by winning a human blood-servant.
A human whose fierce spirit makes him want to protect her at any cost.
Yet Mitrick swore an oath to the werewolf who spared his life—and there’s no human servant in that promise. Especially one who spikes his hunger at every turn. Laine should be focused on the mystery behind her family’s heirlooms. Yet she can’t deny the fire that consumes her at Mitrick’s touch.
In the magic tunnels beneath New Orleans, unexpected love is their greatest strength—and their greatest weakness. When her quest for answers lands them both in the crosshairs, can they survive a curse in the dark?
Kimani Jones is determined to uncover a criminal conspiracy at Yellowhammer & Co., only to discover a bodysnatcher invasion. And that’s before an alien warrior smashes through a window to take her on the joyride of her life.
The intergalactic badass insists she’s his mate. But she won’t abandon her town to the parasitic invaders—even if her smoking-hot blue bodyguard is making her second guess her commitments.
One of only five surviving Apex’ir warriors, Gladius has vowed to hunt his infectious enemy, the Fever. They corrupt the local population, and he’ll destroy every drone in his path. So when his brother demands he rescue a human woman from a backwater settlement, he despises the distraction. Until he sees Kimani, and every protective instinct in his body is set ablaze.
Locked inside his helmet, Gladius knows only his fated mate can set him free and give him a future. He’s sure Kimani is the one. He’ll stop at nothing to claim her—that is, if the Fever haven’t already infected her. Because she’s hearing their voices in her head, and she might be a trap.
War has claimed The Four Houses of Magic. Despite all efforts to stop it, an ancient power is rising beneath New Orleans. Neither witch, nor fae, nor vampire, or werewolf—the true enemy is older and deadlier than any realized.
Still trapped in her enemy’s lair, blood witch Rose LeFey pretends to support her enemy while fighting even harder to return to her mate.
But the gathering dark has other plans.
Her enemy wants her—and her magic—for itself. Needs that magic to unleash its final strike. To escape that fate, she has to embrace powers beyond her control and trust her mate and friends will reach her in time.
Leading the charge above ground, Dar must draw up an Alpha’s strength—which grows harder every day. Being separated from his mate is agony. But an Alpha must protect all of his pack, and his allies need him to stand firm. The vampire Sebastian is battling past demons, and the fae Raina is listening to shadows—and somehow they must gather their people, convince them to fight.
As Dar, his pack and their army plunge into the magical depths beneath New Orleans, Rose pits herself against an ancient power. Though he fears for his mate, Dar must trust in her strength—her magic and her love—to hold back the rising tide.
His belief in her cannot falter. That faith is their bond—her anchor. And their only hope.
At the end of all things, the Four Houses must stand united—or they’ll fall forever.
The Four Houses of Magic are poised at the brink of war. Sickness brews beneath the streets of New Orleans, and ancient enemies claw their way to the surface. And former allies are forced to fight for their future from opposite sides.
Blood witch Rose LeFey is playing a deadly game beneath New Orleans.
Separated from her werewolf mate and trapped within her enemy’s walls, she’s pretending to switch sides while feeding vital information to her allies above. But how can she prove her loyalty to her enemy’s cause without actually serving it?
The need to reach his beloved mate is tearing Dar apart. Yet he has to lead the fight above ground—more, he has to build an army he can trust. No simple feat, as his enemies are corrupting the local werewolves and vampires. Even the dedicated witches that policed the borders between magical Houses have been compromised.
Dar, the vampire Sebastian, and the royal fae Raina desperately seek truth within centuries of lies—while their enemies plan their next strike.
Holy hex. Without help, they’ll be swallowed by the dark.
To gain the information her mate and friends need, Rose has to unleash the full might of her blood magic. But will that save what she loves—or will it drive her further into darkness?
Journalist Brooklyn Tate came to this Caribbean island to blow the lid off a money laundering scheme at a destination wedding—instead, she discovers a bodysnatcher invasion straight from her nightmares and a hot alien warrior sent to stop them.
The interstellar hottie claims he wants a mate for life—but he also acts like humans are barely evolved gerbils. How can she possibly be this grumpy goliath’s match?
Khaz is one of only five surviving Apex’ir warriors. Locked inside his helmet, he’s determined to hunt down the parasitic aliens responsible for destroying his planet.

But can a human truly be his mate?
To claim an impossible future, Khaz must discover whether Brooklyn’s touch can free him from his helm. But their enemies are closing in. Will their passion set the stars alight, or will the Fever burn them up before they can unmask the heart of the infestation.
Aspiring rock goddess Ashley Alcantara wanted to pass her PSATs and fight her way to the top of the music charts. Instead, she’s burying her mother and stuck with an estranged father—who just sold his soul. But maybe there’s silver lining: he also got Ash a full scholarship to a prestigious school.
Saint Damon’s Academy for the Gifted sounds a lot nicer than what it is: a demon academy hidden in the heart of Las Vegas, where the teachers’ heads spin, senior shifters hunt junior students, and finals can be literal murder. Dropped into the deep end of this dark, supernatural world, Ash has to learn how to swim—fast. Soon she’s drawing on the strange power she’d been taught to keep hidden, dating the hottest shifter in school, sharing donuts with an even hotter university student, and forging an unlikely friendship with two classmates trapped in the same apartment complex. But if Ash is going to survive St. Damon’s, she’ll need to do more than navigate the very bowels of Sin City—she’ll need to escape the demons who’ve been chasing her since she was born.
Finding strength in her friends—a meek Feeder named Oscar and a voodoo-priestess-in-training, Nabila—Ash hatches a desperate plan to fight back. They’re forming a band and using their music to channel their fledgling powers.
Together, they’ll make a stand against the dark—that is, if they survive final exams.
