Length: 81,000 words


The Vampire Contract

A vampire guilty of murder on the run from justice to prove his innocence. A werewolf sent to retrieve him with one thought – that only the guilty run.

Vampire Micah Jamieson is found guilty of killing his human husband. He runs from the execution he is facing to get home. He just has to pray he’ll reach home before supernatural law enforcement, in the shape of a Glitnir Court Retriever close in on him.

Wolf shifter and Retriever, Connor Strand easily captures Micah and he’s fully prepared to take the runaway in. But his wolf has other ideas.

Something about Micah challenges Connor and his long held beliefs. What if Micah is actually innocent? Will Connor put to one side his own prejudices, and then risk both his life and career to keep Micah safe?

The Guilty Werewolf

Declan Finlay is the best Retriever that Glitnir has.

Well, he is now that Connor Strand has gone rogue.

He is sent to find Connor - the guilty werewolf. But he doubts that his best friend could ever be guilty and he resolves to track him down and find out why he ran with the renegade vampire.

When the Fae Alliance, reporting to Glitnir, demand that he not go alone he is forced to accept the Incubus, Levi Tiernan, an assassin, as his companion on the journey. If Declan doesn't kill Connor, then Levi will.

What happens when old lust and love dictate action and suddenly Declan is questioning everything he loves.

The Warlock’s Secret

In a world where magic is rare, Joseph Jamieson is one of the most powerful holders of power. Orophin Tiwele, or Phin to his friends, is the son of the Elf King and has magic of his own. The rules say two supernatural beings with magic cannot be together and Joseph and Phin have lived by that rule despite their attraction to each other.

The resistance is growing larger each day, but traitors threaten everything Joseph has built. He wants peace, but soon comes to realize the way to peace, is through war.

When the only thing that will save lives is Joseph and Phin working together, it becomes impossible to see where magic and passion end and where love could begin.

4.5 Stars!!!

The Vampire Contract: I love enemies-to-lovers stories, add two very likable characters and a lovable wolf-side and I'm in heaven. This was a fabulous start to the series. I just couldn't get enough of Micah and Connor. They had amazing chemistry!

The Guilty Werewolf: While I loved Micah and Connor, I think Declan and Levi come a very close second to me, they were hot together! Again, after a falling out, these two are enemies and need to work together to find Micah and Connor, only Levi has his own agenda and Declan is in for a surprise when they actually find his friend Connor. 

The Warlock's Secret: Every book features a different couple, but there's an ongoing plot that just thickens as we advance into the series. I'm really enjoying all the twists and turns and can't wait to see where it will all lead to. Joe and Phin were very likable, too, although there were moments in which I just wanted them to just stop with the half-lies and misunderstandings and just get back together.
Overall, this volume was very entertaining and I can't wait to find out how things are going to play out in the next one.

The Vampire Contract

This is an interesting story of a fugitive Vampire and the Werewolf assigned to retrieve him and escort him to his execution for the murder of the Vampire's human husband. But in a wicked twisted of fate, Connor's wolf side has decided that the Vampire, Micah, is his mate.

Nice beginning to this series of books based on a world full of paranormal beings and humans alike. There is corruption and plots, all familiar when you have royalty and families dating back to the beginning of time, Forbidden love and arranged marriages and of course magic. It's fun and sexy and of course, there's that element of mystery.

I liked the build up of tension between both Connor and Micah since Connor was refusing to believe Micah's innocence at first and he denies his wolf's feelings. It was fun to watch the battle of the two Alphas.

The Guilty Werewolf

Declan is assigned an incubus assassin to accompany him in tracking done Connor and Micah.

That Incubus just happens to be his ex Levi, the man he's never gotten completely over. But after a betrayal, he's not planning on forgiving Levi any time soon.

I liked Declan and Levi and I found they had scorching chemistry and a great connection. I liked how they had a past because it made the quickness of their coupling seem more believable as opposed to instalove. I liked that as with the previous story, the fact that these two men are both strong, capable and stubborn made their banter and the way they behaved with each other entertaining.

The Warlock's Secret

Phin and Joseph both possess magic and that is seen as a problem. They also have a complicated past and a ton of unresolved feelings and baggage. This has led to tension between them and it makes their interactions fun. Whether they are fighting their attraction or giving into it, they have great chemistry.

The story overall is really picking up and we are seeing how much the supernatural world sort of thrives on corruption and segregation. There are a whole slew of beings that are introduced throughout the series and it's quite different yet interesting to see how the interact and live within the kingdoms.

Kingdom Volume 1


The Demon's Blood

When Simeon, a mountain lion shifter meets Asher, a blood demon, there is instant attraction. But, how can they act on the way they feel when there is an entire kingdom at stake.

Asherkan Iblis is a blood demon, a slave to elves and a soldier. He keeps the fact he has royal elvish blood a secret. His half brother returns to broker peace but reveals he is actually there for much more and Asher faces a decision that could lead to his death.

Simeon Blue, brother of the leader of the Feline Guild, mountain lion shifter, is tasked to accompany Phin on a mission over the Red Mountains and into the Second Kingdom. He has to talk to the Guild but all they want to do is stay in isolation and his mission is fraught with danger.

When Simeon is wounded Asher hides him and suddenly, next to a kings death, a cousin's hate, and Ludvik's black magic, love falls on the agenda.

The Incubus Agenda

When Nicholas Tarrant sees a broken and bloody Brody Lennox dragged into the Werewolf Coalition he has to decide. Stay under cover or help the incubus live. His decision is simple.

Nicholas Tarrant has worked hard for his position on the Werewolf Coalition. Having access to whatever is happening inside the Coalition is important to the Underground and he's good at blending in.

Brody Lennox is sent to Glitnir to broker talks of peace but is dragged broken and bloody into the Council chambers. Ludvik wants him killed as a traitor.

Can Nicholas save Brody? Or is Brody too broken to be saved?

The Third Kingdom

The story that began as a simple Retriever case, has become the tale of the fight against a thousand years of evil.

The wolf shifters have Niceros to take down. The Vampire Twins have to deal with Cassius. The Second Kingdom is in disarray and Simeon, Asher and Phin are desperate to calm the unrest.

An alpha needs to accept his role, a blood demon has to become the King he was meant to be, and the Vampire twins have to end the war.

Against all this, Reuben and Ethan, lovers separated for a millennium, are thrown back in to a war to end the poison that is Ludvik Peitrol.

In a battle on the barren fields of Arberfan is where this story will end.

How can love survive the evil that is another's hate?

4 Stars!!!

The Demon's Blood: I really liked Simeon and Asher, they were really good together. I'm loving how all the plans are coming along and all the twists and turns as we advance into the series. 

The Incubus Agenda: I liked Nick and Brody, but I'm not so sure about Reuben and Ethan, still I'm very intrigued over them and can't wait to see how Ludvik is going to react to seeing them together. 

The Third Kingdom: I loved that we were shown the different fronts before they all came together. It was action-packed and fast-paced and it tied all the loose ends from the previous stories. This was a fantastic ending to a very good series. 

It was a great collection of stories with great characters and a fantastic storyline that spanned through six books. 

Very Recommendable!
