Summary: The nightmares tormented me for years… …and shortly after my thirty-third birthday, I learned why. My name is Dante Coranguis, and I have a great life, a solid job, amazing friends, and most importantly, lots of crazy sex. But on the night I met the vampires, everything changed, including my nightmare. My life’s ambitions and dreams were snatched out of my hands because I was destined to become The One, the Herald of Satan, the Antichrist, the most feared man throughout the ages. And here I thought that was just a crazy horror movie about a poor kid named Damien Thorne. Prophecy Rising is the first book of The Snakeheart Series (Season 1), a supernatural novella series about Dante Coranguis and the ancient prophecy of the End Times.

Summary: Once upon a time, on a rocky island with enchantment under the ocean ... Cadence Bell left the windswept Northern Isles and his parents’ inn for the theaters and royal masques and glitter of Londre, swearing he’d make his fortune as a playwright and poet, trading fish stew and rain for fame and adoration and a place at the Queen’s Court. Now his parents are gone and Cade’s inheritance brings him back home, where he’d never wanted to return. But magic lurks beneath the waves, a stray pearl might be a key to another world, and even the quiet local schoolteacher has secrets of his own. Jeremiah Carver never meant to hide secrets. But he promised to tell no one about the other world he’s seen, and he keeps his word. Even if that means concealing magic from Cadence Bell. Which is difficult, since Cade’s not only a dazzling literary success, but also the person Jeremiah’s loved from afar since their years-ago childhood. And he’s afraid he’s falling for Cade all over again now. When Cadence falls under the siren spell of the ocean’s magic, Jeremiah has to make a choice and return to a world he’s left behind once before to rescue his heart from the sea.

Summary: In the final installment in the SoulShares series, author Rory Ni Coileain weaves together the myriad threads of this compelling paranormal romance in a climax that crosses time and space. Sometimes Fae love stories aren’t what you expect. The Marfach—devourer of magick, long-imprisoned mortal enemy of the Fae race—is free of its Antarctic prison. The Demesne of Purgatory—Fae, humans, a Fade-hound puppy, a Gille Dubh, and a darag—is all that stands between the monster and the power it needs to destroy both the Fae Realm and the human world. The only clue they have as to how to kill the unkillable is a cryptic note from the Loremasters: “Osclór, Nartú; Tobar, Soladán; Nidantór, Breathea; Glanadorh, Coromór, Farthor; Scian-omprór, Nachangalte; Crangaol, Síofra; Gastiór, Laoc, Caomhnór; Fánadh, Ngarradh.” Opener, Strength; Wellspring, Channel; Unmaker, Judge; Cleanser, Equalizer, Sentry; Blade-bearer, Unbound; Tree-kin, Changeling; Binder, Warrior, Guardian; Wanderer, Sundered. As they rebuild Purgatory from the rubble the Marfach left behind, they have to stand together, using everything they know—everything they are to their partners, lovers, husbands. Everything SoulSharing has made them. And not everyone who enters the final battle will leave it.

Summary: Kit has loved Elf for as long as he can remember. Since he first met him, when he was but a child. Elf says he loves him but will not consummate that love. How much longer can Kit wait after all he is human and death stands at his shoulder as it does with all humans. Is this a simple love story? Can a love ever be simple? Well no, particularly when a human loves an elf and they are both male. And can anything be simple when fairies come and go as they please and can act as they please should something displease them. What displeases them most? The spread of people not fairy for one. This tale is one of many that result from the impact of the Fair Ones, fairies if you would prefer, on the inhabitants of the realms beyond Fairy. It came about in an attempt to answer three questions. Are the Fair Ones fair? Can you fall in love with someone from another race, another species, another realm? And should that be so, can gender be an issue? Ah well humans, as always, that is for you to decide as you seem to be the only ones with such concerns.
