Let’s Get Serious with some fun Novel Series from Yours Truly!

Today I thought that I would take the chance to share a couple novel series that I have written. These are both full length novel series, meaning that these are in depth and satisfying stories that will leave you fulfilled even while you wait to read the next book in the series!

Let’s start off with my Darkest Series, for the second book Darkest Death is currently on preorder for only .99 cents this month (it will go up to 2.99 next month) which means that you can current get it and the first book in the series, Darkest Valentine, for less than $6! That’s two full length novels for less than $6!

From Book 1: Death and destruction haunts The Dark Duke.

Left unchaperoned and stranded, Lady Lillian Lancaster has no choice but to find her way home, and quickly before her reputation is ruined. Betrayed by those closest, she’s forced to trust the daring rogue who rushes to her rescue.

When the Dark Duke reveals his identity and proposes a false engagement in exchange for further protection, Lillian is concerned and intrigued—yet enamored by the shadows which haunt his eyes and fuel the horrid whispers behind his back.

Clarence, Duke of Canterbury, knows his father’s death was no suicide and will stop at nothing to clear the family’s shame.

He can’t believe his good fortune when he stumbles upon the niece of the very man he suspects is responsible. Not only does she hold the connections he needs to uncover explicit proof, but the very means to seeking revenge. However, the more time he spends wooing Lillian’s trust, the more he begins to doubt his ability to enact the plan.

Can their fake engagement stand up to dark family secrets? Or will revenge win out and shatter both their lives?

The other novel series that I am sharing today is a paranormal set full of shifters, mystery and magic, the War of the Weres!

Series Link: https://www.amazon.com/War-Weres-2-Book/dp/B074PSLFG5/

From Book 1: Nolan and Alexandria fight their sexual attraction, but can’t deny the pull of being mates, despite a serial murder investigation.

Nolan Littlebull is the alpha of the Wahpawhat pack of werewolves, and lead detective on a series of murders of pregnant women from his pack. Torn between human justice and were justice, he travels deep onto the Yakama Resevation, tracking the killers. He is attacked by the rival pack, only to be defended by another from that pack.
Alexandria George is the healer for the Lupins. Though trying to hide her ability to shift, she defends the mysterious wolf in their territory from the pack’s bully and escapes with Nolan. As if it wasn’t enough to be an outcast amongst her own, she now has the complication of having the rival pack being her mate. Together they must find the killer while facing an uncertain future.

Can they fight their attraction for the good of the packs, or is it too late to prevent war?

Pick up one or both of these series and set yourself up for an enjoyable week of reading!

Sarah, Countess of York and decrier of false men of the ton, enjoyed a good flirt, but she had her heart set on Lord Archer. Only, for the past four years, he barely acknowledged her existence except as best friend to his sister Hermione. Sarah had hopes that he began to see her as something more, but then the threatening notes started. Lord Archer also happens to be in the vicinity as each one is delivered. She hates the suspicions rolling around in her mind. However, Father taught her how to watch for treachery, and she couldn’t ignore the logic or the coincidence of Lord Archer’s presence, nor could she deny the pain in her heart at the thought.
Lord Archer had loved Sarah all her life, but once her parents died, he’d taken a step back, searching for a wife amongst the ton as a proper lord should, leaving her to heal. Instead, he found himself drawn more and more to Sarah as she matured into the perfect woman to be by his side. However, could she handle the secret life he led? Did she know about her father’s secret life? But none of that mattered once she started receiving those damn letters. Someone was out to hurt the woman he loved, and he planned to catch them or die trying. Could he also woo her and remind her of the love and trust of their childhood? Or would the situation keep them apart, or worse, kill the woman he wanted to marry?

Get a Sneak Peek at Another Awesome Box Set Coming Soon!

Hot on the heels of making the USA Today Best Sellers list with my last box set, Wings of the Wicked, I am happy to announce that I am already preparing for another box set releasing February 26, 2019!  Daryn’s Slayer, is my story in it and I thought that it would be fun to give you guys a look at what I have in store for you!

Daryn is a rebel vampire, escaped from his coven. Coven leader wants him back, but Daryn has no wish to be under her control again. However, she’d ordered all renegade werewolves killed, and without the rich werewolf blood, he only lived a half life. Only werewolf blood allowed him to stay in the light, to heal properly. He’d manage to stay out of her clutches, but she came too close this time. When he’d apparated to get away, he’d dropped upon sweet, sexy Ernestine.

Ernestine is a vampire slayer, bent on revenge against those who’d killed her kind not falling in line with the Vampire covens. Meeting Daryn had thrown her body into a frenzy of lust and deeper need she didn’t want to resist.

Once the two of them give into their longing for each other, things heat up. Can the two of them find a way to revenge both her people and save Daryn from the clutches of his coven leader? Or will the Vampires kill them both?
