Omega (#1, Omega Series)

Summary:

Omega_mediumIn a modern world ruled by territorial Greek gods, the human race has been oppressed, exploited and now, nearly destroyed by the constant infighting of gods.

However, a human girl with the power of a goddess is coming of age. Alessandra is the Oracle of Delphi – the last prophesized – and bears the mark of the double omega. Soon after she turns eighteen, Alessandra is told her destiny: to step between the warring gods and the human race and save her world from certain ruin.

For the gods, her appearance marks the beginning of the end – their end. They and the Triumvirate – leaders of the human elite – who serve them will stop at nothing to preserve their power.

Alessandra emerges from the forest where she spent her life hidden from gods and men and immediately plummets into a race against time, gods, and herself to discover who and what she is in a world where everyone she meets has a hidden agenda, and those pulling the strings remain in the shadows.

Before she can determine exactly what kind of savior her world needs, she must first master her power by completing three trials devised by the Triumvirate to enslave her.

One lone girl stands between warring gods and the people she’s destined to protect, but it’s the battle to understand who she is that she must win first.

Rhyn Trilogy

Summary:

The Rhyn TrilogyThe life of nineteen-year-old Katie rarely goes the way she wants. Just when she believes things can’t get much worse, a baby immortal claiming to be her son and death’s personal assistant appear on her doorstep. Everyone around her begins to insist she’s someone she’s not, while demons, deities and immortals threaten to tear her life – and sanity – apart.

Scared but brave, she confronts this new world head on, where she meets Immortals like Gabriel, a death dealer, and Rhyn, an outcast half-demon who claims her as his mate in a show of defiance to his Immortal half-brothers.

Determined to spite the siblings that sentenced him to Hell, Rhyn rescues Katie from the demons and discovers what everyone is after: his little human has a gift that will safeguard – or annihilate – the immortal and mortal worlds. His defiance melts into possessive protectiveness of the fiery yet vulnerable Katie as he realizes the sorry truth: he’s the only ally she’s got, and he won’t leave her high and dry the way his brothers did him.

Despite all odds, the unlikely pair begins to trust one another. Katie becomes caught up in the messy, dark political manipulations of the supernatural. The Immortals have no intention of letting her go – alive, that is, and Rhyn can only protect her if he accepts his place among the people he despises, a challenge given his status as an outcast.

Meanwhile, the demons pursuing Katie are closing in, the Immortals lying through their teeth and the deity Death playing a game no one can predict.

To save one another, they face the ultimate choice: Death or Hell. Life or Love. Katie’s life …

… or Rhyn’s.

When she finds Black Cade, she isn’t expecting him to protect her from the English fiancé she’s fleeing. She also doesn’t believe the tales of fae and magic, until she uncovers a secret one night while under Black Cade’s protection.

At first intrigued by the soft-spoken yet strong Isabel, Black Cade is soon faced with a difficult decision: protect her against her enemies despite knowing she’s there to kill him or leave her to deal with an abusive man out to steal her title and gold.

West (#1, History Interrupted)

West_1600x2400Summary: For fans of “Doctor Who” and “Outlander”

If you could change history, would you?

College graduate Josephine “Josie” Jackson answers ‘yes’ to the question on a survey while visiting the Old West tourist town of Tombstone. The next morning, she wakes up in Indian Territory in the 1840s, where she’s given a mission to complete before she can return to her time: to reset history, and prevent the deaths of hundreds of thousands over the next century, by convincing the man responsible for kindling the war between settlers and natives to stay home on the day he’s supposed to start the war.

But someone is hunting down time travelers and killing them. Three other women have been sent back to the same time period with Josie’s mission. When she stumbles upon what happened to them, she realizes the chances of her getting out of the past alive are not good.

To survive, she’ll have to trust the person who’s there to stop her from changing history, someone who has every reason to distrust her and only one reason to help her – to save her from the mysterious man who sent her back in time to start with.

Josie Jackson has been thrown back to the era of the Mongol Empire by Carter, the mastermind behind her trip to the Old West. Soon after arriving, she’s discovered by Carter’s enemies. They sever her connection to her handler, leaving her no choice but to obey them – or risk never making it home.

She completes the mission they assign her, only to have her hope of seeing her family and time again crushed. Her new handlers have stranded her in the past – alone, friendless and with no empathic memory chip to help her navigate the dangerous politics of an Empire at war.

When a Mongol warrior named Batu becomes her protector and guide, she can’t decide if she’s better off with him or alone. Strong, brave, loyal and quick to both laugh and kill, Batu and his world initially baffle her. With nowhere else to turn and no other option, Josie takes a chance to find happiness in the beautiful yet dangerous steppes of thirteenth century Mongolia.

Autumn Storm(#2, Witching Series)

Autumn Storm_coverSummary: A girl with no memory, hidden in plain sight …

A boy with no hope, spiraling into Darkness …

Only one knows the truth, and only one has the power to save them.

Autumn doesn’t know why she remembers a boarding school she’s never visited, or why her reflection is sometimes that of a ghost named Summer. She struggles to recover her memories and understand the warnings conveyed through her magick. Caught between the Turner twins, she isn’t certain who to trust: Decker, the mysterious Master of Dark, who makes her heart catch, or Beck, the cautious Master of Light, whose touch soothes her pain.

Unable to recover from Summer’s death, Decker slowly surrenders to the Dark. The guilt he feels when he falls for Autumn – and betrays Summer’s memory – drives him farther from the Light, until he completely loses control and takes the souls of Light witchlings.

As the protector of Light, Beck is caught between his allegiance to his twin and his vow to protect new witchlings. He must keep the Darkness from consuming his brother, for if Decker fails, he’ll take down the only person who has a chance of saving them all.

Winter Fire(#3, Witchling Series)

Winter FireSummary: A beautiful fire witchling with a dangerous secret …

A race to save the Light from permanent Darkness …

A Dark threat unites with an ancient evil …

If the Master of Light, Beck, has learned anything over the past few months, it’s never to trust a pretty girl – or his own judgment, the source of several messes he’s working hard to right. He saved his brother and girlfriend from Darkness but faults himself for not protecting them in the first place, like he’s sworn to. The Light is receding again, and his earth magick warns him that an ancient danger has re-emerged in the hands of a beautiful, conflicted girl who’s caught between Light and Dark. Drawn to her beauty and gentle heart, Beck is astonished to learn her magick will do more than set his blood on fire. Like his twin, the Master of Dark, Beck has a counterbalance, a woman who can help him protect the Light – if she doesn’t fall to the Dark like the fire witchlings before her.

Hurt too often by bullies in her own life, Morgan tries to protect those around her from similar pain. She and her brother arrive at the boarding school in the Rocky Mountains, only for Morgan to make enemies instantly with Dawn, the Dark witchling who tried to kill Summer twice. But Morgan is hiding something, a source of ancient evil, known as a soul stone, passed down through a thousand years of fire witchlings. Fire repels the coldness of the Dark, and only fire witchlings can safeguard the stone. Taking it into the middle of the source of Light awakens its powers. It finds an ally in Dawn and teaches the Dark witchling how to evade and seek her revenge upon the Masters of Light and Dark.

Morgan grabs the soul stone and runs, only to entangle Summer and Biji in her desperate attempt to protect Beck. Hidden from the Masters of Light and Dark, they must find a way to escape Dawn with their lives – and souls.

The Master of Light struggling to find his place …

The alluring Fire witchling who holds the key to helping him …

Darkness looms over the school for witchlings where the Master of Light, Beck, races to control his magic so he can protect the innocent. He struggles to balance his duty with his broken heart and to understand how to move on from what he considers his ultimate failure: his inability to save the woman he loved.

Morgan is on the run – for a good cause. The soul stone she carries could kill Beck and everyone else she cares about, if she’s caught by the Dark witchlings pursuing her. Neither Light nor Dark, she begins to think she’ll spend her life in the shadows, undeserving of Beck’s love and alone with her secret.

When the paths of Beck and Morgan collide again, there isn’t time for doubt or fear. They must work together to tackle the Dark soul that wants them both dead. To do so, there can be no more secrets between them.

Without Trust, Love and Light, the witchlings will perish.

Semper Mine (Sons of War standalone)

Summary:

Semper Mine_medium“A freak accident landed both of the Khavalov twins under my command, just before a routine mission turned into a nightmare. I brought home one twin in a coffin and the other in a coma missing his leg. I did everything right – and still people died. I can’t forget that night or how many lives it changed, including mine.

It’s natural for their sister, Katya, to blame me. I made one decision in the middle of a firefight, and it shattered her sheltered world. I’m the ice to her fire, and when we first meet, it’s not pretty. I don’t fear war or death, and I am definitely not going to let a beautiful woman with a quick temper and broken heart scare me off, either. I know she’s hurting, and I’m determined to make sure she’s okay. It’s the least I can do for the twins.

I may have failed them that night, but I won’t fail her. What I’m not counting on: the feelings she ignites within me.” – Captain Sawyer Mathis
