FOR ADULTS/TEENS:

Some curses can’t be outrun.

The secret to Redd’s past is locked away in a 400-year-old box that mysteriously appears every year on her birthday. For her entire life, her mother has kept them running from whatever lurks inside it. But Redd’s had enough of not knowing who she is. So when the box shows up where only she can find it, she opens it…and awakens a link to the evil her mother fought to keep dormant. 

John lives in an old-fashioned village, a place of exquisite beauty and abundance. But such splendor demands that the villagers commit dark and unspeakable acts. When the link with Redd is unlocked, the village council believes they have an alternative.  John is sent to find the one girl who could possibly save them…by making the ultimate sacrifice. 


Eleanor sets off from England to America in 1587, pregnant and desperate to leave her ties with the devil behind.  But when the captain of the ship refuses to take her and the other settlers further than Roanoke Island, what should be the beginning of a better life turns into a horrendous struggle to survive. Eleanor’s desire to see her daughter live at any cost will curse her and everyone around her for centuries to come…

Of Wicked Blood

NO REST FOR THE WICKED . . . OR THE CURSED.

SLATE
I didn’t mean to steal the Bloodstone from the de Morel’s crypt.
Scratch that, I did mean to steal it.
Until I realized it was a curse-magnet that only comes off if I, along with a jolly trio, successfully defeat four curses. If any of us fail, I’m dead.
I’ve never been a glass-half-empty sort of person, but my glass looks in dire need of a refill right about now. The only highlight of this wicked treasure hunt: feisty, entitled Cadence de Morel.

CADENCE
I was raised on tales of magic, in a small town reputed to be the birthplace of French witchcraft.
Did I believe all the stories I heard? Absolutely not. I mean, if magic existed, Maman wouldn’t have died, and Papa wouldn’t be stuck in a wheelchair, right?
Wrong.
The night Slate Ardoin waltzes into my life, wearing a ring he stole from my mother’s grave, I call him a monster. But then I meet real ones, and Slate, well . . . he becomes something else to me.
Something frustrating to live with but impossible to live without. Something I will fight for, no matter the cost.

*Warning: profuse cursing (and not just the magical kind).

Of Tainted Heart

ALL’S FAIR IN LOVE . . . AND MAGIC

SLATE
Somehow, we survived.
It was supposed to be over. No more curses. No more magic. Just a calm, little life in Brume.
For the first time ever, I’m ready for calm. So. Damn. Ready.
Just so happens that the girl I love doesn’t like to leave things unfinished.
Fine. So our little crew will assemble the Quatrefoil and bring magic back to the world. We’ve already faced death.
This can’t be worse.
Or can it?

CADENCE
I could have let things be. Maybe I should have let things be.
My crew is alive. Slate is by my side. And life is returning to normal.
Except the university is a giant pile of rubble. Papa is still stuck in a wheelchair. And a girl is dead.
If magic can change all that, I want to try one last time to bring it back.
Hopefully, I won’t regret it.

*Warning: profuse cursing (and not just the magical kind).

The Clockwork Siren Series

Immersed

Melusine Doré slays monsters for a living. The grim and gruesome don’t frighten her; she can take on a cyclops or a three-tailed dragon without even breaking a sweat. But falling in love? Falling in love terrifies her. Because love has the power to reveal a secret dark and dangerous enough to completely shatter her world. 

Submerged

When Melusine and Levi go hunt a beast down South, Melusine’s deepest fear becomes a reality as she finds herself in exactly the place where all her troubles began: home. There, Melusine must face the dark secrets and lies of her family’s past—and the very real possibility that she is more monster than maiden.

Surfaced

When Melusine and Levi discover that someone is trapping and torturing monsters, they’re led on a journey to a traveling freak show. A simple investigation quickly turns into a tangled mess. Levi goes missing and Melusine must tap into all her unusual talents to find and rescue her lover. This time though, Melusine won’t be the deadliest fish in the sea. 

Ensnared

When Amos is taken by sirens, Levi is suddenly thrust into the spotlight, giving him the chance to become the man his father wants him to be. The question is, will Levi do what is proper, or what is right?
