The first week of 2023 came and went awfully fast last week. I blinked and it was Saturday and I have a feeling this week will be the same. This week, we will have one book released per day during the week. If you’re a fast reader, this is perfect for you because you’ll have a day to read each of the new releases! Or if you wait for Fan Pricing Saturday, you’ll have to catch up on everything next week. Either way, it’s a good week.

If you haven’t picked up the new series that launched last Friday, I’ve got a sneak peek of that one for you to enjoy today as well! Note: Auburn Tempest’s three series, including this one, will be moving into their own world this week on our book catalog and it will be called Empowered World. So if you wonder where they have disappeared to, that’s where!​​

I have 5 amazing books launching this week, That’s pretty sweet for a Monday!

Bounty hunting is rewarding, but nobody ever said it was easy.

When your partner is a powerful dark witch with anger issues, it can get downright terrifying.

Good thing Matt Bordelon is up for a challenge because the weather isn’t the only thing heating up in the Big Easy.

A cabal of dark witches and wizards will do anything to control magic. A powerful, idealistic, and extremely misguided politico can only make things worse.

The Big Easy Bounty Hunter and his partner-in-training jump on the case, but the next victim’s deadly countdown timer is ticking.

Nothing is ever simple when you mix dark magic and a deep desire for vengeance.

Matt’s no stranger to the ways of dark magic, but circumstances involving the case and his partner’s hot-headedness are testing his limits.

Can he rescue the victims and bring Natalia back before she succumbs to the sweet temptation of the darkness inside?

Or will the darkness take her before he can save her?

Get your copy and find out whether the Big Easy Bounty Hunter can navigate the murky undercurrents and prevail or if this is the case that defeats him.
