Guarding the Frontier Gets Harder All the Time.

The pilots of Lone Wolf Squadron stretch their resources to the breaking point. Colony ships continue to enter the Dervas Cluster, despite the danger from tribal raiders. When a clan war breaks out, it only magnifies the danger.

A new ally might hold the key to brokering a peace with some of the Cluster’s clans. Can Charli and Lindy seal a new treaty and friendship at the same time?

The Marshal and his misfit deputies are once again flying out at the sharp end of the spear, risking it all to save some of their former enemies.

Title: Witch-Mage Uprising
Series: The Chronicles of the WitchBorn Book 4
Release Date: 02/29/2024

Things have been quiet in NOLA… Too quiet.

The Coven had thankfully gone back to shunning Thea after the Silas debacle. Unfortunately, the brutal murders of several hedge witches leaves everyone involved with no option.

They must present a united front—with Thea as the liaison between AID and the Coven.

Thea finds motivation in the form of wanting to relieve Jax of the guilt he feels for mentoring the victims.

The investigation opens doors within the Coven for Thea. However distasteful she finds the skeletons in the Coven’s closets, the knowledge she gains could be just what she needs to get to the bottom of the mystery before it’s too late for the unaffiliated witches in the city.

Early leads point to a literal witch hunt. Keeping the peace as tensions rise in the magical community is not conducive to getting the answers every side is demanding.

Solving the murders can’t be as simple as identifying non-magicals taking out a vendetta against the seemingly unprotected witches outside the Coven? Right?

A New Evil Discovered in This Snippet of Beyond Mercenary Book 1

Beyond Mercenary Book 1: Blood Illusions

A new evil is brewing for this brother-sister duo.


 

Blood Illusions – 

The frozen ground crunched beneath my boots as I backed up against a tree, my breath forming misty clouds. My silver knife, gleaming in the dim moonlight, was frosted over, a peculiar phenomenon that only occurred when my twin brother Damon and I hunted these unusual vampires. I gripped the handle tighter, and a blend of fear and resolve pulsated through me.

As the vampire neared, the air filled with a curious blend of scents. The sharp tang of electricity, the chilling touch of frost, and a faint, almost imperceptible floral note reminiscent of night-blooming jasmine. The sensory paradox was as intriguing as it was unsettling, hinting at the complex nature of these creatures.

“Damon, now!” I shouted, my voice cutting through the dark forest.

Heavy footsteps thumped through the fallen leaves, accelerating my heartbeat. I raised my cold knife, my blood freezing as an angry snarl erupted nearby. The vampire’s hiss rattled my ears, sending goosebumps all over me. It had a definite scent. A burned electric smell, as if something had short-circuited. I’d never encountered anything like this in the supernatural world.

“Stay where you are, Sawyer,” Damon yelled. “I’ve got him.”

I peeked from behind the tree and watched Damon charge, his blade held high. He flushed something dark from the bushes. A vampire, towering and menacing. It swung and hit Damon, who flew through the trees like a baseball.

A rush of bitter air brushed over me as a dark shape sped past. Without hesitation, I swung my blade hard, slamming it into its back. The creature cried out in pain, stumbling forward, then whirled, blood dripping from its many sharp teeth. More like Jaws than Dracula.

What was this creature?

He stepped toward me. He was twice as tall as a grown man and made of pure muscle. His eyes glowed red like embers, and he flashed me a deadly smile, sending a chill up my spine. “You shouldn’t have done that, beautiful. I bet your blood tastes sweet.”

I pushed my fear behind me and crouched, ready to pounce, holding my blade firmly in my hand.

The creature lunged at me with vampire speed, but I was ready for him. He snapped my head back, his hot breath beating down my neck. As I gritted my teeth, a sudden, sharp jolt of electricity surged through my body, a sensation I’d come to recognize when these encounters turned deadly.

Ignoring the electric tingling that raced along my skin, I plunged my silver blade into his chest. The moment the metal met his flesh, a more intense shock burst through me as if the blade itself conducted a supernatural current.

He released me abruptly, staggering backward, clawing at the silver embedded in him. The electric sensation faded as quickly as it appeared, leaving a lingering buzz in my fingertips.

Damon screamed, lifted his sword high, and decapitated the vampire with a powerful blow. The creature’s head rolled to the side.

My brother panted, glaring at me. “Sawyer, what were you doing? You could have gotten yourself killed.”

I put my foot on the vampire’s twitching carcass and pulled out my blade. “Don’t act like Dad, Damon.” I lifted my head high. “I didn’t do anything you wouldn’t have done.”

“You don’t want to—”

I held up my palm. “Don’t even say it. I’m tired of both you and Dad thinking I’m going to end up like Mom. I’m not her.”

“But according to Dad, you’re reckless like she was.”

His patronizing tone spiked my anger. I didn’t answer for several seconds as I cleaned my bloody knife on the grass. “I’m not her. We needed to flush out the creature. This was the only way to do it, and you know it.”

Damon knelt beside the vampire’s head. Its eyes stared into the moonlight sky. He examined the mouth. “This thing isn’t like any vampire I’d ever seen. It’s got like a million teeth, and it smells like an electric charge. Never seen or smelled that in a fang before.”

I came up alongside him. “Where do you think this creature came from? Do you think it mated with something like a werewolf, and it’s a weird side effect?”

“No.” Damon shook his head. “I’ve seen the offspring of a vampire and a werewolf, and they don’t look like this. It’s almost as if…” His eyes turned solemn.

The hair on my nape stood on end. “As if what?”

He exhaled in frustration. “As if the damn vampires are doing something to make themselves more powerful, powerful enough to reign over the other supernaturals and humankind.”

My brows furrowed. “Do you think the Paranormal Mercenary Corp knows about this?”

The Paranormal Mercenary Corp was made up of supernaturals that included vampires, fae, orcs, dragon shifters, and wolf shifters. They claimed to protect not only their own kind but humans as well. The PMC was supposed to keep the supernaturals under control, meaning they didn’t hurt humans.

They maintained an uneasy truce with us human hunters. Our worlds coexisted as long as they adhered to the PMC’s strict laws. However, when any supernatural entity strayed, violating these laws, it fell upon the human hunters to intervene. This task was far from simple. Unfortunately, many supernaturals saw humans as nothing more than tempting prey, a bunch of walking Happy Meals, making our job both necessary and dangerous.

He gave me a hard stare. “Or maybe they’re involved up to their eyeballs in it.”

“That’s comforting,” I responded dryly.

He pulled his keys from his leather jacket. “Go get the Ford.”

I cocked my eyebrow and folded my arms. “Why? What do you want to do?” I couldn’t keep the uneasiness from my voice.

“We need to take the body back with us. Dad and the others have to see this. We need to know what the vampires are up to.”

I curled my lip as I turned away from the bloody head. I wasn’t sure what we had to put that thing in. Maybe there was a blanket in the trunk of the car. The trunk was our arsenal, and we had every kind of weapon to use on the supernaturals except for guns. Guns were useless against them. To kill one, you had to get up and personal. Real personal.

I slipped into the candy apple red ‘67 Ford Fairlane. Dad gave it to us in high school. Technically, it was both of ours, but it really belonged to Damon. It had a V-8 engine and was a beast. I loved this car. It was perfect for hunting. Way better than Sam and Dean’s Chevy Impala.

The Ford purred, and I slowly drove it over the forest floor. As I approached the fallen vampire, Damon hacked at the body. What was he doing?

I jumped from the car. “Damon…” My voice trailed off abruptly.

Damon roared as he brought his broadsword down on the bloody corpse again and again. A sickening thud accompanied each strike, echoing through the forest like a lumberjack chopping down a tree.

“Stop this madness.” I rushed over to him and grabbed his arm. “What are you doing?”

He broke away from my grasp, anger flashing in his eyes. He gritted his teeth as he pointed at the bloody remains with his sword. “Sawyer, this vampire has been trying to reattach its head to its body.” He kicked the head away from the body, then staked it with his blade.

My eyes widened. “What? That’s impossible. No vampire can do that.”

His face twisted with rage as he wiped the sweat from his brow. “This bloody bastard could.”

I ran back to the car and opened the trunk. I grabbed a blanket from the corner and hurried back to the head.

“Wrap the head in the blanket and put it in the trunk. We’ll have to bury the body parts in different places. Hopefully, it won’t come back to life.” Damon stabbed the creature in the chest, pinning him to the forest floor.

I shuddered at thinking of the body parts finding each other and creating a headless vampire corpse, aimlessly wandering the woods.

 The vampire’s dead eyes locked with mine. After drawing a shaky breath, I bent down and covered the bloody head.

Please don’t talk, please don’t talk, please don’t talk.

I tossed the secured head in the trunk. Damon grabbed two shovels and handed me one. The metal surface glinted in the pale moonlight.

He tilted his head. “Come on,” he urged as he headed toward the corpse.

The forest ground was hard and unforgiving under my feet as I followed him. Sweat-soaked strands of hair stuck to my forehead. With each thrust of the shovel, my arms trembled with effort as Damon and I carved out several holes in what felt like concrete clay.

“These are deep enough,” Damon pronounced as he wiped his brow.

We rolled the bloody pieces into several six-foot holes, then we covered them with dirt, all except for the limbless torso. It was the biggest piece.

I panted hard from all the shoveling. “I hope so. I wish we had something to weigh down the torso. I don’t want this thing reattaching its limbs.”

He scanned our surroundings. “Help me move that boulder.”

I groaned silently, but I nodded and pitched in.

The boulder wouldn’t budge

“Shit,” Damon remarked. “We’ll have to use chains and pull it with the Ford.”

“Sounds good.”

He opened the trunk and glanced warily at me. “I think this thing moved.”

“Really?”

“Yeah, it rolled across the trunk from east to west.”

I retied my ponytail. “Great. I really hope it doesn’t start talking.”

“So do I,” Damon agreed as he headed to the boulder.

He hooked the heavy chains around the rock, tugging to make sure they were securely fastened. I glanced at the motionless torso lying in the grave, holding my breath and praying it wouldn’t come back to life while we worked.

What kind of vampire was able to do this? Was this some twisted dark magic used by the PMC? What possible motive could they have for such a terrible act? The truce between us was already shaky, and this would make it come tumbling down.

The torso had been face down. Now, it was on its side. Damn it. “Damon, hurry!”

Damon revved the engine, and the Ford chugged forward, dragging the giant rock from its resting place toward the gaping hole. He leaped out of the car and undid the chains with trembling hands. We grasped either side of it and pushed with all our might, rolling it onto the torso with a squishing thud.

We grabbed our shovels and threw dirt on the boulder and the torso, pinning it to the ground. With every scoop of earth, my arms strained in protest. When we finally finished our grisly task, I trembled from head to toe.

I glanced at Damon. “What if it crawls out again?”

“Then next time, we’re making vampire s’mores. Extra crispy.”

We unlocked the trunk. The head had moved to the back again.

“Time to hit the road. Let’s give Headless a little separation anxiety. Maybe that will keep him still,” Damon suggested.

“God, I hope so.”

We loaded the chains into the trunk along with the shovels.

As Damon pulled away, I stared at the grave, hoping that thing wouldn’t move.

We had about a three-and-a-half-hour drive from Aspen back to Denver.

I sighed and glanced at Damon, who was intently studying the horizon. He absentmindedly twirled a strand of his dark hair around his finger, which meant he was nervous. He’d done this since we were little kids, like when he was taking a test or thinking about asking a girl out.

“Do you think Dad is still going to be mad that I went on this hunt?” I asked cautiously.

Damon sighed heavily, his breath fogging up in front of him. “He’s got a one-track mind. And you two had a hell of a row before we left.”

I leaned my head back. “I don’t want to go to college.”

“I know. He’s got this nightmare on repeat, scared you’ll go down the same road as Mom. His biggest fear is losing you like he did her.”

I fingered the charm bracelet Dad had given to me on my sixteenth birthday. He’d found it tucked away in some of my mom’s belongings in the attic. After she died, he didn’t have the heart to go through any of them. He had been rummaging through the attic looking for something—I couldn’t even remember what—when he stumbled upon it.

The bracelet didn’t have anything to do with hunting. When I was six years old, Mom and I went to see the Phantom of the Opera, and I fell in love with it. I was only a little kid, but I still remembered it. She’d bought me a charm bracelet, and I lost it a year later, days before she was murdered. I was devastated. Then, losing her too had nearly sent me over the edge of despair.

Ever since Dad gave me the bracelet, I always wore it. It felt like she was with me, and it gave me a small piece of comfort when I was scared or lonely. “I’m not Mom. It doesn’t mean what happened to her will happen to me.”

“Yeah, I get it. But carrying around guilt like that, it’s like trying to drive with the brakes on. Doesn’t do anyone any good, especially him.”

“Tell me about it,” I grumbled.

He reached over and squeezed my arm gently. “Get some sleep. You’ll face him soon enough.”

I managed a small smile, even though I dreaded having the same argument with Dad for the hundred millionth time. My head bobbed, and I fixed my gaze on the snowflakes gliding down the glass pane of the car window. The rumbling engine came to a standstill as Damon softly pressed the brake. A gentle warmth emanated from the car’s heater, making it toasty inside. I closed my eyes for a second, not believing I could sleep for one minute.

The next thing I knew, someone shook my shoulder, rousing me from a deep sleep. “Sis, we’re home.”

I fluttered my eyes open and yawned, stretched my arms. “What time is it?”

He rubbed the bridge between his eyes. “A little after four.”

I dropped my arms and yawned again. “You should have woken me up. I could have driven part of the way.”

He shrugged. “You were out like a light. And let’s face it, you could use the extra Z’s to keep up those stunning good looks.”

Red spider veins lined his deep blue eyes, and dark circles underlined his eyes as if someone had smudged charcoal beneath them. I cocked an eyebrow. “You need to catch some shut-eye, too, Damon.”

“Yeah, as soon as we dump our decapitated hitchhiker in the back with the geezer squad.”

I rolled my eyes. “You mean the Elders?”

He flashed me a mischievous smile. Damon had gotten into trouble more than once with the Elders of the Lumina Brotherhood, a top-secret society of supernatural hunters. They were our so-called bosses, but Damon had never been much of a rule follower. With Dad being an Elder, they had bonked heads again and again like stubborn bighorn sheep.

Our parents had trained us to be hunters since we first learned to walk. Dad had ideas about us becoming Elders and retiring from hunting, but neither one of us wanted to be a pencil-pusher.

I expected Dad to tear out of the house, ready to battle me again, but the house was strangely quiet. He always greeted us after a hunt.

Always.

Damon and I glanced at each other.

Something was wrong. Dread crept into my bones.

Title: Blood Illusions
Series: Beyond Mercenary Book 1
Release Date: 02/23/2024

I’m a hunter, and I thought I knew everything there was about vampires, but I was dead wrong.

Where blood flows, the sin of gluttony follows, and my brother and I are caught in its deadly thirst.

My twin brother, Damon, and I grew up in the shadows of the supernatural, trained by our father, a legendary hunter and an Elder in a world you wouldn’t believe exists.

Our lives? A relentless pursuit of the things that go bump in the night, ever since we lost our mom to a vampire’s fangs when we were just kids. But now, Dad’s gone missing, and we’re on a treacherous path to find him.

We thought we knew the drill – stake ’em, salt ’em, save the day. That was until we met our newest nightmare: vampires, or so we thought, leaving nothing but skeletons in their wake. These creatures, they’re playing by rules we’ve never seen, and we’re in way over our heads.

Then there’s Justice, a vampire fighting his own kind, a guy from some group called the Paranormal Mercenary Corp. Trusting a vampire? Not exactly in our playbook.

But when your enemy’s enemy is… well, you know how it goes. Doesn’t help that there’s something about Justice that’s messing with my head, in ways a hunter’s heart shouldn’t be stirred.

As we delve deeper into this mystery, every shadow whispers secrets, and every clue leads to more questions. Who are these new monsters? What happened to our father? And why does everything feel like it’s hanging by a thread?

One thing’s for sure: Damon and I are going to find the truth. We’ll hunt these monsters down, save our dad, and maybe, just maybe, figure out what’s going on with me and my unexpected ally.

In this deadly game of cat and mouse, it’s not just our lives on the line – it’s our souls.

It’s either the worst day of Juno’s life or the best. She’s not sure yet. But she’s going to find out!

An Unlikely Pairing in this Snippet of Fame and Flames Book 1

 

Hard Rock Heat: Fame and Flames Book 1

 

It’s either the worst day of Juno’s life or the best. She’s not sure yet


 

Hard Rock Heat – 

Juno

The insides of my stomach churned as I sat waiting. Today was the big day. My first TV interview, and I’d been asked to wait in some side room alone. Not that I had any idea what to expect, but every time I’d imagined how it would go, it hadn’t been me waiting alone in a room for thirty minutes while the interview time ticked closer.

I’d imagined being unable to find the correct section of the studio and wandering lost in the building for hours or turning up in my pajamas. The sorts of nightmares everyone had. But I’d also dreamed of it going well and pushing my career to a whole new level.

Although I’d been up since six to get ready and travel to London for the interview, I felt wired, my hands shaky and my pulse fast. Once more, I checked my hair and makeup still looked okay.

I’d tried to do my deep brown hair in an elegant French plait but was so unused to bothering with it that I wasn’t sure I’d done a very good job. Similar with the makeup, although I’d heard they were likely to redo it anyway.

I ignored most of my facial features, a sort of self-defense mechanism. My nose was a little too wide, my eyebrows too bushy, and my forehead too tall. Instead, I tried to focus on my eyes, the intense blue one of my best features. I also loved my ears, the shape of them almost elven and quirky in their lack of earlobes. My face wasn’t the most attractive, but it could definitely be worse.

Sighing, I put my little compact mirror away and sat back. My stomach was still in knots, and my hands were beginning to sweat.

Not good.

I subtly wiped them on my skirt and hoped it wouldn’t show.

To try and give myself something to focus on, I pulled out the sheet of questions I was going to be asked again and looked through them. There were the ones I’d expected about my work, the current book I was there to promote, and how I juggled everything.

There was also one about my separation. It had come as a shock to a lot of people. Almost fifteen happy years of marriage, including those of the recent pandemic, suddenly ended. I’d planned my answer to that one very carefully. I had to make sure people believed my reasoning.

Almost instinctively, I reached down to the bruises on my right-hand side and smoothed my clothes over them. They still hurt, but the pain was finally fading. I’d taken painkillers to take the edge off, but it was important that no one noticed them.

I was thinking about my answer to the final question, what I was planning on doing next, when the door finally opened.

My mouth fell open as I recognized one of the most attractive men on the planet being shown into the room by another of the studio assistants. He gave me a brief smile, the gesture lighting up his tanned cheeks and showing the chiseled jaw in the best frame.

He glanced at the woman showing him in before moving over to a seat on the opposite side of the room, and I couldn’t help but follow him with my gaze.

I finally shut my mouth, hoping the click it made wasn’t too audible.

“Someone should be with you to take you to hair and makeup in just a few minutes,” the woman said to Jack Starling, billionaire rock star and actor, before she noticed me.

She seemed to do a double-take as if she didn’t expect anyone else to be in the room.

“Oh, are you waiting here for Dominic?” she asked.

“I don’t think so,” I replied. “A lady called Faith asked me to wait here for my interview.”

“Interview?” The woman frowned and pulled the folder she’d been clutching against her chest far enough away to look at it. She seemed to scan down some sort of list.

“I think you might be in the wrong place. This is the section of the studio for Keith O’Sullivan’s talk show.”

“Great. That’s the show I’m on today,” I said as I exhaled, feeling my body relax with relief.

“Me too. They must be doing a double interview,” Jack said as he leaned forward and once again offered me that dazzling grin. His words were like honey, a blend of American deep South accent and something more mystical and almost Caribbean.

“No, no,” the woman said, suddenly appearing flustered. “It’s just Jack today. What’s your name, miss?”

“Juno. Juno Fernsby. The author and narrator.”

“Audiobook narration?” Jack Starling asked as the woman continued to look through pieces of paper she held, dropping one.

Both of us got up and tried to pick it up for her. Jack beat me to it by just a fraction, our hands brushing together. I straightened, feeling my cheeks grow hotter as he handed it back.

“I’m sorry, I don’t have you down at all. There must have been some sort of mix-up. Your interview must be another day. Do you think you could come back another day?”

I frowned and held up the paper I’d been clutching, my question sheet with a clearly printed date at the top.

“It is the ninth of July, right?” I asked.

“Of course. All day,” Jack replied for the woman, although she nodded as well.

“Then I’m meant to be here today,” I added, feeling my stomach knot even more.

Of all of the things I’d imagined going wrong, having the studio forget I was coming hadn’t been one of them. This couldn’t be happening.

Not only had it cost me several hundred pounds to get here and stay the night at a hotel nearby, but the time it had taken and the preparation I’d put in was massive. My new agent had assured me this would do wonders for my career. It was supposed to be something hugely exciting, not a train wreck.

“I’m really sorry. I don’t understand how there’s been such a mix-up, but you can’t be interviewed today. Mr. O’Sullivan doesn’t do double interviews.”

“But I’ve had this interview planned for months. I was told he doesn’t get many openings…” I trailed off, aware I was rambling.

I felt mortified, my cheeks beginning to heat. Not only was I not going to get my interview, but I was being given the brushoff in front of my favorite actor.

I looked between them, not sure what else to say or do, but the assistant appeared entirely sure of herself. No interview for me.

“Why don’t you go check,” Jack said. “There’s a chance we’re both meant to be here, and this lady has no doubt come a long way for this. I’m sure something can be worked out to accommodate both of us and waste no one’s time.”

The woman gulped, but his calm suggestion had far more weight than my pleading denial had achieved. Eventually, she nodded.

“If you could both wait here, I’ll be back as soon as I can.”

She turned on her heels and strode out, pulling the door shut behind her with a bang.

I backed up a little, not sure what to do now, and very aware I was alone in a room with Jack Starling, the most attractive man in the world. He didn’t move, his gaze on me, and I felt my cheeks flush again, so I looked away, taking in the jeans he wore and the brown boots beneath them. He had a quirky dress style, as did most of the rockers he spent time with.

“I’m sure the whole thing will be sorted out soon,” he said. “Have you come a long way?”

“From Bath,” I replied, instantly grateful for his ability to make conversation. I’d heard he was shy, but my normal, confident exterior was taking a while to catch up to the situation.

“Beautiful city. I love it there in the summer.”

“It’s stunning when the sun shines,” I said, immediately hating the small talk, but what else did I say to this man? My mind went blank, and my heart hammered in my chest, the pain down my side suddenly a thousand times worse.

This was a bad day.

 


 

Could it be the most attractive man in the world was also a decent one? Find out on February 22nd when Fame and Flames Book 1: Hard Rock Heat is released. Until then head over to Amazon and pre-order it today.

The Mother of Witches won’t go down without a fight.

To end her evil reign, it will require something Rose never expected.

She’s used to fighting with force and magic, but this epic battle will require much more than that.

Love.

Fighting hate with hate, only creates more chaos.

The way to end evil is with love.

But that requires a faith unlike any other.

Can Rose discover the location of the Sovereign Shadows coven and end the Mother of Witches before she destroys magic for good?
