Shorts & More

Here you'll find a selection of short stories and standalone novels that start series I plan on extending some day. 

Please be patient. If you're excited for the next installment of one of these, tell a friend. Authors, like me, will put a second and third in a series to the side if we don't see readers excited for the next in series! 

Half Soul: The Realm

Hell called to his soul, but his soul resisted. 

 

Or that’s what Asher Terhune believed.

Born from the demonic seduction of his human mother, his birth destroyed her marriage. They were left with only a Guardian and Watcher to protect them from his demon heritage. Born with a half-soul, Asher quickly learned to use the Seven Deadly Sins to fill the hole inside himself.

His favorite sin was Lust.

 

Women had no chance of a second night with Asher, once he was done with them. And he had no intention of changing his ways. Until the sweet, calm, caring Sarah Illfrig rocks his world, and refuses his bed.

 

Asher finds her refusal unacceptable and takes on the challenge of seducing her. Sarah pushes him away even as the desire she feels for him is pulling her in.

 

But Sarah harbors her own secrets, and when the Guardian and the Watcher find out, it becomes imperative to keep Sarah and Asher apart.

Moonlight Calling

The Nightshift in New York

When Melissa Donnelly discovered the stalker’s note on her table, she was shaken to her very core. Her now-ex-boyfriend wasn’t the *best* person in the world, but she didn’t think Andrej would sink to this level.

Detective Loren Acrioni knew Melissa was going to be a handful the instant he showed up at her house. Sassy, sexy, and smart-mouthed, she was a fierce woman determined to not let anyone stop her from living life. Not even her ex-boyfriend, the heir-apparent to the Russian mob in New York City.

Very soon, it becomes apparent there’s more going on than either of them expected. Melissa is in real, immediate danger and Loren decides it’s time to call in the Nightshift–a special group of New York City police officers with odd abilities: witches, psychics… and shifters.

And the one thing Melissa never expected was her knight in shining armor would show up in the small, furry shape of a house cat named Alistair Meowly…

Turned: The Lastillions

Waking up dead sucks.

Cracking her eyes open as one of the undead for the first time in the cellars of Castle Pietra, Sara immediately meets her guardian—well, werewolf. She witnesses him halt her summary execution and then save her life with his blood.

His sweet, delicious, magical-laced blood.

Slowly, through his tutelage and the kindness of his family, she starts to get used to being a vampire. It’s not the best un-life, but at least she can make sure her little brother Keelan is safe and cared for.

But all it took was one winter night. A night she was enjoying with her date, Marius, and trying to live just a little bit of the life she lost when everything changed. She, Marius and Michael are pulled into a world that was darker, more cruel, and bigger than they ever suspected.

And Keelan was their captive.

The Descendantship

Previously published as The Complex

Balance Point

John Smith— lucky him, his real name and what a great name for a vampire–joined an experiment when his luck ran out. The donor he had been seeing was more than willing but less than legal, and her father the Senator wants him staked. He takes the alternative: a ticket to experiment on Lorn.


But the experiment was a microcosm of the worlds of Seldova and once again, he finds himself at the end of stake wielded by an angry mate. This time though, it’s not his life being threatened–the sweet, down-on-her-luck succubus Auralym has made the bad choice this time.


And the choice was worse than he and Climantra security volunteer Marin thought. Short on time, they must find her if they hope to find their balance point…

One Thousand Wishes

One Thousand Stars

The Angel fell, but not for him.

P’iliticus Alvinad had pined for the beautiful angel Arahambramin for centuries. But angels—living just a quarter turn out of the reality all the Metas inhabited—were one of the most mysterious of all the species, and she had never taken a second look at the diminutive djinn.

Pili’s heart was crushed when Min chose another to love. His ire rose when he found it was a Human. He knew he could ever turn her away from the Human who fathered her child.

He didn’t trust his heart after that. For his own safety, he entrusted his lamp to John Smith, the vampire. When John brings the lamp to the Complex, Pili is forced to follow. There, he discovers what his angel never knew about her chosen mate…

…and his plans for their child.
