This collection is chock-full of star-crossed lovers and fated mates. Meet these exiled alien warriors, princes and kings today!
Nearing high school graduation, Tilly Morgan’s eager to leave her small Texas town. Armed with a plan to start fresh with her older sister in Florida, her dreams are obliterated when an electromagnetic pulse ravages the planet, rendering the world’s electrical grid useless and throwing Tilly's community into chaos.
No technology. No modern conveniences. No power.
Widespread panic tears across the country and roving bands of looters and rioters overpower the weak to take what they want. Max Jacobsen, Callahan High School's bad boy troublemaker, teams up with Tilly in a bid for survival and protection.
There’s more to Max than he shows and Tilly finds herself drawn to his quiet strength and morally ambiguous ways. Their constant companionship creates a strong bond of friendship... and maybe something more.
Braving each incoming threat together, Tilly and Max learn what it means to protect the ones they love. But when black spaceships descend from the sky, an even greater threat looms over mankind—a fate far worse than the loss of electricity.
*This is the prequel to the Savage Worlds Series, which starts with The Descendant by Melissa Riddell.
Two enemies unable to fight each other's pull. Love will either bind them to Heaven or curse them to Hell...
After being marked by his father and thrown into the land of Nod, Cain's wrath and vengeance know no bounds.
Finding a tentative place in Lucifer's army, Cain longs to become a dark angel, crash through the gates of Heaven, and deliver retribution.
Lucifer assures Cain he'll finally earn long-coveted wings once Cain captures Phoebe--the only human immune to his mark and stirs emotion in his dark heart--if Cain can deliver her to Hell.
Torn between the burning hatred for his father and a consuming obsession for Phoebe, Cain is faced with an irreversible, life-shattering choice.
I came to Mesa Palms for a fresh start after my divorce. Needing the serenity and calm of the desert, I spend my afternoons as a DJ rocking the city. It might not be the most glamorous job, but I love the no-frills life and answering only to my cat.
That is, until one day, England’s biggest God of Nu Rock walks in like he owns the place, and my boss forces me to interview the arrogant jerk on-air. The entire interview turns into a horrible disaster, but it gets even worse when Viktor sets his sights on me.
He thinks he can seduce me with his bedroom eyes, but I’ve dealt with men like him before. I’ll chew him up and spit him out so hard he’ll land back in England, where he belongs.
When I walked into the dumpy radio station, I’ll admit I didn’t think much of it--until I saw the little angel sitting in front of the microphone with a snarky smile.
Yeah, I've made some terrible mistakes in my past, but it’s been years and I’ve cleaned up my act.
No drugs. No alcohol. No messing around.
Does Angela, the little demon sent to torture me, believe it? That’s a big, fat bloody no.
But I have a plan—Operation Angel Seducer. Once it’s sprung, she’ll be putty in my quite capable hands. After all, no woman has ever resisted the lead singer of Angry Gods.
Paxton Ross is a kid from the wrong side of the tracks. Finding his father dead in a seedy motel room due to an overdose, sixteen-year-old Paxton suddenly becomes homeless and destitute.
Terri Kingston is a girl who seems to have everything: a lavish lifestyle, a good school, a perfect family. Except outside appearances can be deceiving. What she needs most—love and acceptance—has always been denied.
When Terri and Paxton meet during their teen years, their worlds collide into a messy, beautiful, forbidden love.
But Terri’s parents tear them apart for twelve years. When they run into each other again, things have changed, and not for the better.
Will they get a second chance to find true love, or will the temptations of the rockstar world rip them apart once more?
Cursed for his sins. Scarred by her past. Can love set them free - or will fate keep them apart?
Ten years ago, when I was eight, a raven rescued me from a 50-foot plunge and a life of abuse. For years, the same bird stayed at my side like a best friend and protector. There was something special about him, but I had no idea just how unique he was until I found him in my room one night--in human form and irresistible. His secret comes with a price, though. Am I willing to pay?
Since the day I saved her life - both from a deadly fall and an abusive, drunken father - I've secretly hoped Sophie could break my curse. Two hundred years ago, a rival enemy's shaman doomed my tribe to live as ravens in retribution for our transgressions.
One day each month, during Ravenlight, the spell lifts and we assume our original forms. Instead of joy, though, being human is a reminder of what was lost.
Lucifer, introduced in Cursed, the first book of the Fallen Angels series, now goes by Lucian and he has a problem.
A disturbing problem named Anna Sill.
For the past ten years, he's struggled to understand why he has felt compelled to help her. Finally abandoning Anna to her fate, Lucian stubbornly refuses to have anything else to do with the human.
But fate and God are cruel mistresses, and Lucian finds himself face-to-face with Anna once again, though she's not the same girl he once knew.
Hell has many forms, and Lucian--its ruler--is about to discover Hell isn't just a place...it's a state of being.
Tilly Morgan and her four-legged companion, Kodiak, are trying to survive an alien arrival. Two years ago, the unearthly visitors unleashed devastation--a worldwide EMP followed by a deadly virus that wiped out more than half of humanity.
Traversing the lonely landscape, she runs into an alien on patrol with one order: eradicate all human life. A charismatic, dark-haired stranger named Jareth comes to her aid, and she reluctantly allows him to join her quest to find her sister.
As her group travels the desolate world and inches closer to her goal, she's forced to examine her unwanted feelings for Jareth and come to terms with her heart, even if the truth threatens to destroy her and everything she's come to believe.

Dive into The Descendant to experience this mesmerizing series today!
Jareth’s final betrayal pushes Tilly over the edge. Desperate to shove him out of her heart like a bad memory, she falls into despair. General Lathan Rhys recruits Harper Serrano to remind Tilly there are bigger things at stake than a broken heart, like humanity’s survival. She knows he’s right and works her way through the ranks to become Earth’s first representative to the alien race. Kodiak and Harper also train at her side and become new recruits for the Henokan army.
When the group takes the fight to the battlefield, Jareth abducts Tilly and whisks her back to the Staleth. Volatile and angry, he decides to do what he should’ve done all along—claim her and impose absolute rule over the Baltin Council.
But Tilly has her own secret. When Jareth discovers what she’s hiding, it changes the world forever.
The Henokans, in hot pursuit of the Baltins, have arrived on Earth. Escorted to the last major remnant of humans and the most secure stronghold in the United States, Tilly’s given two choices: cooperate or die. The United States Air Force and the Henokan army have formed an alliance called DAWN, and they plan to use her as bait to prevent an otherwise inevitable war.
General Lathan Rhys, the Henokan leader and Baltin Prince’s archenemy, wants more than her cooperation, though; he wants vengeance and companionship.
As Tilly and Kodiak come to terms with their new reality, she’s forced to re-examine the little she knows of Jareth. General Rhys urges her to forget about him and help heal what remains of humanity. The choice should be simple, but love demands a steep price. But when Tilly re-emerges into the world, she sees a bigger picture of the damage and injustice the Baltins have inflicted.
Humans need help. Can she do her part to save what’s left of humanity and continue the journey to find her sister? Will one more of Jareth’s lies push her over the edge in the fight for her heart and planet?
Only one thing’s for sure—he’ll never back down when it comes to holding her love, even if it means destroying everything in his path.
Ash has been struggling to make ends meet as a bartender for six months. She has no one to depend on and no one to depend on her. She likes it that way. It’s neat. Uncomplicated. Freeing.
But she’s not free at night.
A man with violet eyes haunts her dreams. Mordakhi swears he’ll hunt her to the edge of the universe if she doesn’t give him what he wants.
Ash doesn’t remember much before arriving in Fallow Hill, Texas.
Is Mordakhi a dream? A beautiful, sinister, beguiling nightmare that heats her body and makes her crave the darkness?
She knows she must resist him at all costs because if she doesn’t, her heart—and the world—may not survive his thirst.
How far would you go to protect your family?
Follow Jareth for the first year after the end of the Baltin Trilogy. From his perfect hideaway on Earth to Rularran, the newly-terraformed city on Mars, Jareth is determined to ruthlessly protect his family from every possible threat.
But perhaps the biggest danger comes from within...
Can he truly leave his violent past to become the man his family needs?
