Summary: When a rebel werewolf and a vampire thief fall in love, only one thing is certain—trouble. For as long as Lucas Coate can remember, werewolves have been taught to mistrust vampires. Lucas is an exception—he has close friends who are vampires. The werewolf pack in Boggslake—and their leader, Jacob Coate—have made it clear that Lucas’s association with vampires is barely tolerated, and another transgression will be his last. When Lucas finds out about the plague of werewolf deaths in the area, he wants to help even though his own life may already be in danger. Declan has been away from Boggslake for ten years, but he isn’t surprised to learn that the internal politics of the Supernatural Council haven’t changed for the better. When a series of burglaries hit close to home soon after he arrives, Declan—a vampire and professional thief—is their prime suspect, although for once, he isn’t responsible. With the council keeping secrets, no one is safe. Time is running out, and for Lucas and Declan, everything is about to change. Authors Note: This story was originally released in 2015 by another publisher. This edition has been re-edited.

Summary: “Tell me a story Daddy.” Kikoi, xolos wrangler by night and King Talos’ snuggle monster by day, demanded. “What story do you want to hear tonight, baby boy?” Talos, Vampyr King and Supernatural Council Member, asked while he pulled Kikoi onto his lap. “I want to hear about when you met Daddy Bayne.” Almost three hundred years old and Kikoi would never get tired of story time. “Again?” Talos arched an eyebrow with amusement. “Yes! It’s a good one.” Kikoi beamed at Talos. Talos leaned against the headboard of their bed as Bayne, former assassin but still looked damn good in armor, joined them and began… The Age of Man has passed, and a new age is upon the Earth. An age of magic and technology ruled by the supernatural beings that once hid amongst humanity has begun. Bayne is thrust into a world he thinks he knows but quickly discovers his whole life has been built on lies. Talos, perfectly happy ruling his corner of the world, is faced with an unexpected and unwelcome change that comes with the mate chosen by Fate. Together they must discover how to live and, in the end, love one another. Fate has more in store for them than learning to love someone they should hate. Will they be open to all the possibilities Fate lays out for them? Bloodlines of Fate is a new urban fantasy series set in a world destroyed by humans and resurrected by supernatural beings. Fate has many plans for the vampires, unicorns, therianthropes, elves, and humans of this new world. While their mates may be fated, love isn't that easy. This book contains depictions of gladiatorial combat, snarky fem twinks who will cut you, kings in stilettos, and awkward heats with a pinch of daddy kink. Talos is part one of a two-part story arch that tells the love story of two triads (MMM). It does end in an HFN with a HEA tied into the second part. This is a type of omegaverse with mpreg.

Summary: I thought my boss was just another eccentric billionaire… …but I didn’t realize he was the financier of a global satanic cult, too. No matter how much sleep I lose thinking about my life, I can’t escape the numbing evil that surrounds me. Ever since the Vampires dragged me into this mess, my life has been an uphill battle against supernatural forces I barely understand. I’m not a religious man by any stretch of the imagination, and the mere thought of stepping into a church makes me nauseous. But the insane, unexplainable events happening in my life make me truly wonder if destiny has condemned me to an unholy fate: the Herald of Satan, or the Antichrist himself. When I found out the company I work for is nothing more than a front for a secret human organization that has been financing the end of the world (aka the apocalypse) and the coming of Lucifer Morningstar, well, that was the day I decided to foil the Devil and end it all. Unholy Alliances is the fourth book of The Snakeheart Series (Season 1), a supernatural novelette series about Dante Coranguis and the ancient prophecy of the End Times. Get it now.

Summary: I didn't think things could get worse… …but people started dying, and it was my fault. At first, I thought someone was playing a cruel trick on me, but that didn't explain the bizarre truth that defied scientific explanation: I had unwillingly become part of something ominous and evil. I'm not the kind of guy who cries often, and I'm certainly not a killer. I wouldn't even wish death upon my worst enemy, if I had one. But after losing two of my closest friends, I questioned my morals and beliefs: could I kill to survive? I didn't have time to mourn because I needed to discover where I fit in the supernatural world of Vampires, Lycan, and Spellcasters. If the crazy old priest and the Fae were right, then my place is second only to Lucifer Morningstar himself. Children of the Sun is the third book of The Snakeheart Series (Season 1), a supernatural novella series about Dante Coranguis and the ancient prophecy of the End Times.
