Finder’s Keeper

My first entry in Dreamspinner Press’s new Dreamspun Beyond line of contemporary paranormal category romances.

Zane is an engineer who decides to move into the old gothic brownstone in Cleveland, Ohio that once belonged to his uncle. There he meets Kit, the caretaker of the house, who just happens to live in the basement. Kit is charming, sweet, and an amazing cook. He’s also the guardian of a gateway between the human and spirit worlds. Though he doesn’t know it, Zane is from a long line of keepers, humans who attend the gateways between the worlds. And he’s in for a very big surprise….

Familiarity

Kai Loflin is headed to his first job out of law school, dreaming on the plane about the gorgeous redhead in the seat next to him. But when Kai and Mr. Dream Guy are cornered in an alley and under attack by vicious creatures, the dream quickly becomes a nightmare.

It turns out the man of Kai’s dreams isn’t a man at all: Elodie is a familiar who has served Kai’s family for centuries. Kai, who was adopted as a child, discovers he is the last in a long line of mages who barely survived extermination at the hands of creatures bent on eradicating the magic users who once kept them at bay.

Elodie says he’s bound to protect Kai, no matter the consequences to himself. But when Elodie and Kai enter into a contract, Kai gets far more than he bargained for.  Elodie isn’t exactly what he claims to be, and his motives may be anything but pure. The last thing Kai needs is to fall in love with the person who may be his savior, or the tool of his destruction.

Blood and Eternity

Blood Series: Book 3

Sequel to Blood and Ghosts and the final installment in the Blood Trilogy

When he finds himself in a future he doesn’t recognize, Adrien must make a devil’s choice between the life he dreamed of with Nicolas and trying to repair a badly damaged past. If he chooses to go back in time to challenge Pelletier for the soul of the Council of Hunters, Adrien must first master the demon who lives inside of his mind and controls the ability to manipulate time. But there’s a caveat to the fight with the powerful being who shares his thoughts and body: if he loses, Adrien will die.

As Adrien struggles to control his demon, Pelletier enlists some frightening help in his crusade–horrible creatures created through vampire blood who respond to his commands. The fight is a distraction from Pelletier’s true motive: to force Adrien to grow strong enough to fight him one on one. But what choice does Adrien have but to fight to save the vampires and hunters he loves?

What will become of the Council of Hunters? Will Adrien be able to return to his own timeline and reunite with the Nicolas he lost at the ill-fated wedding? And will Adrien lose to his inner demon, or will he grow strong enough to finally win against the seemingly unbeatable Pelletier?
