Through her aunt’s lawyer, she learns this key comes with a house along Canal Grande in Venice, Italy. Thinking she can settle her post-divorce debts, she decides to pay her inheritance a visit but quickly realizes the house is more than crumbling brick and mortar—it’s a gate. A gate to a world of masqueraded lovers and assassins, a realm where a mask can hide much more than a face.

Until an irreverent, modern woman crashes through his defenses and teaches him to never give up. Unfortunately, hope always comes with a price.
To My Readers: I’ve always been interested by curses. Not the words (well…), but the power of a person’s hate. I’ve always wondered, what if a curse took shape, followed its target everywhere it went. A tailor made hell. This is such a story. Gaius did a bad thing two millennia ago and is still living his punishment. When Anne-Marie stumbles into him, she can’t resist trying to help this handsome stranger with the wounded eyes. But the curse isn’t done with Gaius. Not by a long shot.
Gentlemen Inc., Book Two
Jill can hear the dead. They speak to her, cajole, implore and sometimes warn her of dangers. But it’s becoming too much. She needs a break. A vacation. The moment she sets foot in magnificent Istanbul, Jill embarks on a sensual journey that spans epochs and dimensions. Her lover and guide, the sexy, enigmatic Kivanç, convinces her to leave everything behind, to abandon herself to her senses, which he fires with the most erotic and seductive means in his vast repertoire. He doesn’t just make love to her body—he consumes her entirely.
But whispers in the night trouble their idyll. The dead are speaking. And they’re warning her—Kivanç is more than what he seems. What begins as a hedonistic voyage and sexual adventure turns into a race against time when they discover an ancient secret deep beneath the city. Success would mean freedom for countless souls trapped in an artificial hell. Failure would doom them all to eternal torment.
And break her heart.

Lycan Warriors, Book Four
Brioni believes there is good in everyone. Even the mysterious new lycan who joins Earth’s organized resistance. He does not mingle with the others, kills without passion and never, ever takes his goggles off.
One night, she happens on him secretly playing the ocarina. The haunting music calls to her, as does Haruto’s loneliness. For once, when she reaches out, he does not respond with his trademark smirk or disappear. And as she shares herself with him, Brioni learns just how wicked a lycan’s touch can be and how a mere lick can unleash a fire she had not known possible. His flesh brands hers, his mouth sears a decadent trail on her skin. Pure sensualization. Until all hell breaks loose.
Haruto never cared about consequences, to himself or others. Until now. He would do anything to shield his precious “Goth Fairy” from harm. He would kill for her. Or die. And the enemy knows.
Lycan Warriors, Book Three
She went down in a hail of bullets, but even hell didn’t want her.
In the eyes of the law, Cristoval is a freak who ought to be hunted down and destroyed. To the thousands who look to him for guidance and strength, he’s the resistance’s charismatic leader, a man who sacrificed even his own happiness for the cause. When he meets a woman who eclipses every other, a Valkyrie fierce and forceful, he knows he’s been given a second chance.
To a woman who faced death and came out on top, the towering lycan with the haunted eyes is an anchor in a sea of chaos, a pillar in a world gone mad. He’d be more if she just let him. And she wants to. But the enemy has to pay for what they did to Cristoval and her, for stealing their chance, for twisting something good into an aberration.
If she has to drag her enemy down to hell herself, then she’ll do it. She’s been there. She knows the way.
Lycan Warriors, Book Two
He’s the worst of the bad, the deadliest weapon of them all, except to her…then he’s the gentlest teddy bear.
Liberty was the first member on the lycanthrope team of soldiers-for-hire. Her specialty is technology. She’s seen every member join, some of them to stay, others to leave — permanently. One colleague has always managed to make her lose her legendary cool. Unlike her, Cupcake hails from a humble background, hasn’t a credit to his name and lets people think he’s just a mountain of muscle, all brawn and no brain. Liberty knows better and has lusted after the quiet, towering lycan with the serious eyes for years, silently wishing he’d just make his move. But he hasn’t so far, even if there are days she swears there’s a bit of fire in his pale eyes, a hint of longing in the way he glances at her when he thinks she’s not looking.
A species created by man to serve and obey. But we made a mistake…we gave it fangs.
We designed them for our use. To wage our greedy wars, toil in our poisonous lunar mines. We made them pleasing to the eye so our children would not have nightmares, tall and strong and smart so they would adapt to environments never meant to sustain life. We thought we had created the perfect sub-species. Obedient. Disposable. How wrong we were.
Helios stands alone. The first of a dying race. He has spent his life fighting to free his kind. To avenge them. His world is a cold, desolate one that has never been touched by grace or light until a hot-tempered woman, a human, marches into his life, his home and his guarded heart. Through Dawn’s dry humor and passionate embrace, he learns to trust again and to love. But just as he starts to hope, she is stolen from him. With his light gone, all that is left is darkness and revenge.
They took the one thing he loved and Helios will stop at nothing to get Dawn back. Even damn his eternal, vampire soul.

Imagine if the Big Bad Wolf had won?
Dex Solomon is the Big Bad Wolf. Leader of a lycanthrope team of mercenaries, he fights hard, plays harder. And on the battlefield as well as in bed he takes no prisoners. He has no finesse, doesn’t know the meaning of the word “retreat”. His men will follow him to the gates of hell if need be. His women regularly curse him off to the same place. But one woman — sexy, dangerous and enigmatic — has managed to penetrate the tough shell and ignite the sexual fury brewing underneath, has even managed to convince the ever-guarded Solomon to trust her. For the first time in his life, he’s considering it…changing his ways, taming the beast within. He’d do anything for Eva.
And Eva, the Iron Conclave’s top spy, sent to infiltrate a team of dangerous lycanthrope mercenaries, would do anything to protect her government. Even if it means betraying the one man she’s come to love.
Erica Bain’s one-pilot company recently celebrated its seventh anniversary flying Yukon’s High North. Erica flies when no one else can, takes on clients no one else wants and lands her floatplane where no one else dares. But after she delivers wealthy hunters to their secluded lodge, an electrical fire forces her to make an emergency landing at a nearby weather station. Its lone occupant, a man notorious throughout the region for his “charming” personality, couldn’t make her feel less welcome if he tried. Maybe crashing in the mountains wouldn’t have been so bad after all.
Lothar’s been around for six hundred and seventy years, ten months, twenty-five days and some change. But who’s counting? His different careers have included prospector during the Gold Rush, reluctant medical aide to a charity group after his immigration to North America, courier during the Napoleonic War, popular man with the ladies of Vienna’s aristocracy and brilliant physician. And before it all, back in his thirteenth century native Austria — a time he won’t let himself forget — he used to be a sadistic monster.
He’s never believed men like him should hope for a second chance. Until Erica lands on him — literally.
