There are things out there…things I thought only existed in fairy tales.

 

My name is Kailani Ericson and I hate my life. My mother is an indentured servant in this lonely house, serving a hateful old woman who loves to terrorize me. My only comfort is the sea in my backyard. Diving into its frigid depths is one of the few things that make me happy.

 

Then he shows up, and my entire world shifts.

 

Bryce Howell is gorgeous, every girl’s fantasy. He’s also arrogant, insolent, and strictly forbidden. But he’s not normal. He’s something…different. Magical. Powerful.

 

Turns out, I’m not normal either. I am the stuff of myths and legends. They say legends never die, and I hope that’s true. There are those who want me dead, and if I can’t put a halt to my body’s imminent transformation, there will be nothing I can do to stop them.

 

I love the sea, but ultimately, it might just be what kills me.

In an underwater empire ruled by a vengeful king and populated by a race filled with hatred for all things human, can Kailani survive long enough to rescue her parents and escape the city?

Knowing the odds are stacked against her, Kai takes her chances and travels to the underwater city of Delmare, hoping to save those she loves. But not everything is as it seems in the beautiful kingdom under the sea. Not knowing who to trust, Kai must rely on her instincts to guide her decisions. She soon learns that the seemingly obvious threats are not what they seem, and something far darker resides in the ocean's depths. 

With unlikely allies by her side, Kai fights to survive. To return to land with both her parents. To return to the loving arms of her soul mate and get her happily ever after.

Resurfaced is the follow-up to Suppressed, and continues Kai and Bryce’s story. Filled with action, magic and romance, lovers of The Little Mermaid and Beautiful Creatures will enjoy this series.

Blood Persuasion
Vampires don’t exist. 

Everyone knows that, but after a drug experiment gone wrong, a new generation of children share a frightening number of characteristics with the fictional bloodsucking monsters. Needing blood to survive. Advanced hearing capabilities. The ability to control people with their minds…

I’m Savanna James. Loner, outsider, whatever you want to call it, I have no friends, and that’s okay with me. Or at least, it was. Everything changed the day I met the Patton brothers. I knew what they were. Homo Altiorems, or Alts, the children born to participants in the XRT-90 trials. Three dark-haired, silver-eyed, smokin’ hot Alts, at my school, in my cafeteria, staring right at me. They insisted on getting to know me, because something about me was different. Special.

I went from having zero friends to having three boys devoted to me in every way. And they were right. I was different. There’s one thing I can do that no one else can, and it changed my life. 

It changed theirs, too.
This is a young adult reverse harem paranormal romance suitable for teens and adults, ages 15+

Unpersuadable

My name is Lizzie Williams, and I have spent the last several months being molded into a soldier for the Divine Church of Purity— a group of intolerant, bigoted people desperate to keep our species pure and untainted by Homo Altiorems, or Alts.
The things I’ve done in the name of the church…I have a lot to make up for. My journey to redemption takes me to Connecticut, where I meet Silas and Slade Madsen. Brothers. Twins. Insanely hot and completely irresistible. They're also one hundred percent Alt. 

When my former mentor threatens someone I love, my new friends vow to help me execute a rescue plan. Our mission takes us to Washington, D.C., where, in addition to facing down the leader of the Purist movement, we discover our president is using Alts to further his own agenda. Their persuasion works on his peers, the press, and the American people as a whole…but it doesn’t work on me.

I’m Lizzie Williams, and I’m unpersuadable. 

Sometimes the ones who save us are the ones we need to fear the most.

In a world where dark faeries have stepped in to save the planet from humanity’s mistakes, seventeen-year-old December Thorne is nothing but a shadow. Shunned by her peers, bullied at school, and paid a little too much attention by her sleazy foster father, she lives in constant fear and perpetual solitude.

Until the day everything changes.

Offered a scholarship to the prestigious Oberon Academy, December finds herself living in a whole new world. Boundless food, clean clothes, a safe place to sleep, and the potential for true friendship make her new life seem almost too good to be true—but the school has a secret.

The truth is, Oberon Academy isn’t just a prep school for society’s elite. It’s a training ground for a secret race of magical beings no one knows exists. And they’re preparing for war.

Filled with fear and denial, December has a choice to make. She can either return to her pathetic life with her dangerous foster parents, try to survive on her own, or make Oberon Academy her home and discover the truth about who, and what she really is.

And that truth could save the world.

Rogues of Everly Prep

I might have gone from rags to riches, but this is no fairy tale.

I never thought I’d long for the days of pacing the living room of our tiny single-wide trailer, waiting for Mom to get home from her shift serving drinks at The Silver Fox. Or my boring night shifts at the convenience store. Even dodging my skeezy ex-boyfriend’s bumbling attempts to seduce me. 

To say my life wasn’t great was an understatement. But at least it was mine.

Or it was until Mom came home and announced she was getting married. That was the day my life became unrecognizable.

As if a new home and a new family weren’t enough, I found myself enrolled at Everly Prep—an exclusive academy where the rich send their pampered and privileged teenagers to be educated.

And it was immediately obvious I didn’t belong.

Patronizing staff members, mean girls, and snobs galore greeted me as I roamed the hallowed halls, but it didn’t bother me. I invited them to do their worst. 

Then I met them.

Seth, Theo, Cooper, and Mason—known as “The Rogues”—ran the school with iron fists and wicked tongues, making Everly Prep their own private kingdom. They were powerful, gorgeous, and brutal, a deadly combination that made them invincible.

And I was the perfect target…or so they thought. But I'm Chaz Miller, and I don't go down without a fight.

This is a dark high school romance with light bullying themes. Though there are four male main characters, it will not be reverse harem. There is one main love interest and there will be an HEA... eventually.
