Their chemistry could make their show a monster hit — if the monsters don’t kill them first.
On the surface, psychologist Audrey Barrett is the perfect co-host for Michael Covenant’s new cable series, Project Demon Hunters. She’s smart, articulate, and photogenic as hell.
There’s just one problem. Michael has made it his mission to stay out of her orbit. Thanks to his producer’s stubborn insistence, however, there’s no avoiding her — which means Michael will have to bury his secrets even deeper.
After the tragedy that took her parents ten years earlier, Audrey has kept herself on the fringe of the paranormal world. But with her small therapy practice floundering, the money the show’s offering is too good to pass up.
From the moment they step inside a rundown mansion, things start flying: sparks between Audrey and Michael, not to mention furniture hurled by something determined to make sure their investigation fails. Worse, evil seems to have followed Audrey home — and she discovers why the man at her side on camera is the last man she can trust in real life.

The two of them went upstairs, where she paused in front of the open door to her room. Before she could say good night, however, Michael spoke again.

“You know you’re a very extraordinary woman, don’t you?”
He was standing very close. Possibly too close, but Audrey found she didn’t mind. Maybe she should have minded. There might have been a moment when she could have stepped inside her room, made a quick comment about seeing him in the morning. Whatever that moment was, or could have been, it was lost soon enough, because Michael took another step toward her. Now he was only inches away, those odd, gold-flecked gray eyes focused on her face.
Voice a murmur, he said, “You can tell me to stop.”
She knew she should. She knew what was going to come next. But all she could feel was a terrible, aching need, body and soul telling her something her mind had wanted to ignore.
All she could do was shake her head. Not telling him to stop, as he’d said, but letting him know that she didn’t want to say those words.
She didn’t want him to stop.
And then he was bending toward her, and she felt as if she was falling into those eyes as his mouth touched hers. In that instant, the need within her seemed to flare with a terrible fire, wanting even more than this kiss, wanting him so badly that the strength of her desire shocked her. Had she ever felt this way with anyone else?
She didn’t think so, but right then she also wasn’t quite capable of rational thought. All she knew was that kissing Michael Covenant felt more right than anything else she’d ever done, even though she knew deep down that they should not be doing this. Not when they were working together. Not when he was being so secretive about his past.
Despite all those thoughts raging through her head, he was the one to end the kiss, not Audrey. He lifted his mouth from hers and took a step backward, then said, “I shouldn’t have done that.”

Silence fills Seraphina’s ears swallowing up the voices. Her mouth was open with laughter now clamps shut. She’s falling. Falling fast. Her arms reach for something, anything before clawing at her throat. It burns. Bubbles fly out as she attempts to scream. Help! Anyone help me! No one comes. No one ever comes. She grows light and lighter still. The bubbles slow until they eventually stop completely.
An image flashes against her mind, tiny face and blue lips under the clear water.
Seraphina’s eyes fly open. She was reliving it again. Reliving what she had allowed herself to become. She will never forget the time she spend as a Demon, that has become is her cross to bear. That’s when they come. Creeping up on her like shadows after the sunset. They echo louder and louder inside her mind. Her hands clamp down on her ears trying to drown them out. It doesn’t work. It never does. Screams of terror fill her. They used to fuel her power, now they only haunt her soul.
Seraphina has tried so hard to keep the screams from entering her. Her fingers still twitch with the power they can hold. Her hold on the Earth has never left. It sits there under the surface waiting…waiting to be unleashed. She can’t let it. She refuses to allow it. She is powerful beyond what anyone can comprehend. Which makes her dangerous. She must never allow herself to get out of control. Not ever again, the world depends on it. She shivers.
There was a dream. One she never mentions, not even to Nate. Once it’s spoken, it would make it real. It has been said that dreams are a wish your heart makes. She hopes that’s not true because the dream showed her the world. But, it wasn’t the world she remembered. It was a world destroyed. A world in which evil wins and her powers are unleashed. Death. Destruction. Lucifer and his crew roam the Earth freely. Humanity is no more. That’s why she has to keep it in check. Seraphina must not let the evil win.

Billion Dollar Bear
Jericho Knight isn’t interested in what his clan wants. If they had their way, he’d be mated to the ruthless Ravena Hasting, just because she’s the former Alpha’s daughter.
So, what does he do?
He disappears, that’s what. Determined to enjoy his final few days before becoming Alpha, he plans to live it up and escape the watchful eye of his suffocating clan.
That’s when he meets the firecracker that makes him want to break all his rules, especially the one about never mixing business with pleasure.
Bearly Magic
Mixing business with pleasure can be a magical combination. And deadly.
The local humans don’t know it, but they live among a growing community of shifters, mages, dark elves, and vamps. San Francisco may look like a beautiful city by day, but when the lights go down, the streets are crawling with dangerous paranormal creatures.
Angela Mason works for the Order of Protection. This means that it’s her job to protect the city from dark supernatural forces, and do whatever is needed to keep the people safe, including partnering with the irresistibly handsome stranger, Cole Avery.
What she doesn’t expect, is to feel such a strong connection to the dangerous shifter. Thankfully, Cole Avery’s rule of never mixing business with pleasure should keep them focused on solving the mystery.
Or so they think…
Taste of Honey
The curvaceous Olivia Rose has always been a hopeless romantic. In fact, it’s gotten her into trouble more times, than she cares to remember – always falling in love with the wrong kind of men. So, when she finds herself being rescued by a gorgeous stranger, she expects that it will be trouble as usual.
She has no idea just how much trouble she’s about to get into…
Dark Side of the Moon
Veronica Maxwell has never fit in. Not into the cliques in high school, not even in her own family. So, she turned to martial arts as a way of venting out that anger, and that’s how she ended up in the ring, fighting her ass off, fired up and ready to compete.
Mikel Taso is used to fighting. He lives in a world of constant war; Clans fighting Clans and shifters fighting shifters.
But when his Clan is threatened by extinction, he knows he has no other choice but to abandon his planet for a thriving one: earth. And that’s how he came face to face with our kick-ass heroine, and the one woman he believes is his one true mate.
When these two fighters’ cross paths, it sets in motion a series of events that will not only test their will to survive against all odds, but to survive each other.
And Veronica isn’t going down without a fight.
Grizzly Heat
Rescuing Sonya from a fire is only the beginning. It’s instant chemistry, a passion that burns as bright as the very fires that threaten to consume them.
They were destined to meet…

A chance encounter with a dangerous dragon ends with Kane being hired to take out an alpha of an opposing dragon clan. Gaining access to the leader is the least of his troubles. When Kane comes face to face with the alpha’s daughter, she isn’t just a distraction, she’s his fated mate.
Will Kane follow through and destroy the alpha he was hired to take out? Betraying his employer means war, but betraying his heart could cost him everything.

There’s nothing sexier than the kiss of a primitive, dangerous, and irresistibly gorgeous shifter, especially one with the power of the dragon…
When Arianna finds herself face-to-face with the gorgeous castle blacksmith, Craig James, she feels such an intense connection to the man that she is left stunned, unsure what the hell is happening to her. He’s not just remarkably handsome, he also possesses an irresistible charm, that leaves her powerless to resist him.
What begins as a one-night stand, quickly turns into something more, as Arianna finds herself thrust into the middle of a world filled with mystery, and magic, where tales of flying dragons and dangerous witches come to life, and where nothing is ever what it seems.

Abandoned by his mother as a young boy, and taken in by the elders of the Redwater clan, Tegan isn’t your typical hero. In fact, if you ask him, he wouldn’t call himself a hero at all.
Yet when he is asked to investigate the outcome of an attack on the nearby human villages, what he discovers invokes the rage of a thousand storms, and he finds himself on the run with a beautiful stranger.
Tegan may be half dragon, half human, but he’s all heart. If he doesn’t stay focused on the mission at hand, he will find that the curvy woman he’s determined to protect, could be on her way to stealing it.
Dragon Heat
When the curvy dragon shifter suddenly loses her ability to fly and finds herself hurtling to the ground, Adalyn must admit, she’s one hot mess. Unable to escape the city without wings, she goes on the warpath to find out exactly who is responsible for her inability to shift.
A few hours later, she finds herself drowning her sorrows at the local watering hole. What’s a girl to do when she has nowhere to go, and no one to call for help?
She falls into bed with the sexiest man in town, of course. Except the guy isn’t exactly able to help considering his reckless behavior is the reason why she can’t leave.

Samara
“Okay so it’s time to introduce the person to your left. They should have told you enough about themselves right now.” Martine, the uber-happy, bouncy pony-tailed teacher instructed us.
I was not uber-happy, or bouncy. I was super pissed off.
“Samara, could you introduce the person to your left?”
Yeah, pick on me first why don’t you?
Sighing and blowing air above my top lip, I pointed to the woman next to me. “This is Janet.”
She shook her head. “No, no. Jeanette.”
I rolled my eyes. “This is Jeanette. She’s been sent back to Cupid classes because she did something dumb.” I didn’t know what it was but if she hadn’t she wouldn’t be here.
“Well, let’s not use the word ‘dumb’ shall we. Jeanette just-”
“Fucked up?” I stated trying to be helpful.
“Let’s move along. Max, could you please introduce Samara?”
Max beamed like the goody-goody twat he was. From now on I was calling him Vax, due to his sucking skills and being full of crap.
“Samara is here because she set up Taylor Swift with Tom Hiddleston and we all know what a car crash that turned out to be.” He elbowed me. “I knew that wasn’t real. Did you give him the t-shirt? It looked like it could fit you?”
Martine’s face clouded over. Yeah she wasn’t so happy now was she?
“Samara did not set up Tom and Taylor. That is an outright lie.”
I folded my arms over my chest. “Well someone must have done it. Seriously ruined Tom for a lot of women she did.”
Martine stomped out of the carefully constructed circle of chairs she’d made us put together and grabbed a thick file from her table. Then she stomped back in.
“Here we go. Samara Leighton. Reasons for being back at Cupid Inc. Training Headquarters.
Samara’s behaviour towards her local colleagues resulted in one colleague being ridiculed and having to seek counselling. I quote. ‘What kind of person draws attention to an unfortunate mishap of another? Samara is crazy’.”
“Crazy is not waxing your vagina and then sitting with your legs apart in a spa.” I informed everyone.
“Samara engineered a speed dating event prior to the opening of the dating agency in Withernsea and we believe saw a man she liked there herself. She then ‘accidentally’ turned up on his date. This man is now her husband. Now, fortunately the date she ruined wasn’t fated anyway, but what she did that day was stupid.”
“We’re madly in love. The best match ever.” I looked at the other faces sat around. “Well we were. Now my husband is in kennels. KENNELS. They turned him into a dog.”
Martine carried on. “Samara’s monthly inputted figures included those pairings from Withernsea Dating Agency, run by Shelley Landry, with no actual input from Samara at all.
“It says pairings for the month. It doesn’t specifically say my pairings. That’s on Cupid Inc. They should be more specific.” I complained.
“It’s lazy, Samara.”
“So I’m Samara. I’m crazy, stupid, and lazy. That’s how you need to announce me to all the others, Vax.”
“Max.”
“What-ev-er. My introduction is complete.”
