Undying Embrace: A Dracula Novella

 Now available in audiobook format! 

Narrated by: Kylie Stewart

 
Death, Christabel thought bitterly. An inescapable fate that, for her, would remain forever elusive.
 
Life was perfect before he came. The vampire who shattered the world she knew. Handsome, intelligent, and charming, a single taste of Dracula’s touch overrode Christabel’s cautious sensibilities and left her breathless, craving a life beyond traditional expectations. A destiny of knowledge, which could only be found in the creature’s eternal embrace.
 
Fueled by unquenchable passion, and a desperate belief that the brilliant Christabel might break the curse condemning him to darkness, the vampire prince will do anything to claim her.
 
As her traitorous heart opens, will Christabel resist the vampire’s dark desires, or become his immortal bride?

Black Rose Guard: Vol 1 – Boxset!

BlackRoseVolI-3d-lg

Tales of the Black Rose Guard: 

Volume I 

A woman with no memory of her past. Another unable to forget. Both haunted by a sinister creature of roses and shadow with an unquenchable thirst for royal blood. Welcome to the world of the Black Rose. 

***

Six hundred years ago, Mara, the immortal captain of the Black Rose Guard, led her knights to their greatest victory: the annihilation of the Muir Court. For avenging a fallen princess, she was hailed a hero. Yet for Mara, the mirror reflected only a killer.

Haunted by the slaughter carried out in the name of honor and duty, Mara hoped she had fought her last battle. But when a mysterious girl arrives pleading for aid, Mara’s dream of peace shatters as the blood roses begin to bloom.

Determined to save the young woman for whom the long-dormant roses have awakened, Mara dons her ancient Arius blade, and prepares to once again lead her men into a fight from which they may never return.

All the while, Mara’s enemies prepare to exploit her greatest weakness: the life of her only love, Edward. Her sole warning is whispered in shadows: Beware the Silver Rose.

Shattered Moonlight – Cover Reveal

ShatteredMoonlight-Kindle

Shattered Moonlight
By: K.L. Bone & Erin McFadden

Every night, the wolf wailed his sorrow to the lonely moon.
Every sunrise, her heart echoed his mournful call.

**

Celine treads a worn path through the cursed wood to pray beneath the Hawthorn tree for her sister’s safe return. The trail is dangerous—her nightly pilgrimage is stalked by monsters who dwell in the murky shadows.

One moonlit evening, the beasts come for her, yet instead of meeting death, Celine is saved by a fearsome wolf. As Celine and her wolf develop an unlikely companionship, she begins to suspect the complex creature is more than he appears, and perhaps his fate is inexplicably tied to the kingdom’s curse.

When a handsome huntsman arrives intent on slaying her protector, Celine must face her fears to save her big bad wolf.

In Her Shadow

To the world, Carolyn Rodgers appeared to be a rising star. Winner of several prestigious pageants, she seemed a natural choice for Ingenue Magazine’s annual contest to discover Montgomery Studios’ next Hollywood star.

Only she was not Carolyn Rodgers.

Born Margaret Keats, Carolyn assumed a false identity after the disappearance of her sister, Elizabeth, who had entered the same competition the year prior. After a series of peculiar accidents, Elizabeth had vanished, without a trace, the night before the winner was selected.

Faced with law enforcements’ apathy, and determined to learn the truth of her sister’s disappearance, Carolyn infiltrates the competition, keeping her true identity hidden behind a web of elaborate lies. No one is above suspicion, but top of Margaret’s suspect list are studio executives, who are rumored to secretly help their favorites, and Myrna Moran, the aloof beauty who claimed her sister’s coveted prize.

“Fear to the fearless. Hope to the hopeless. Mercy to those who hate you. Death to those who love you. That is your destiny, Princess of Kale, Princess of Koloso, heir to both.” – Prophecy of the Kalian Twins

***

Two heirs. One throne. Journey to the Kalian kingdoms and follow twin princesses as their struggle for the crown divides not only their hearts, but the kingdom they strive to rule.

Trained in the arts of combat, swordplay, and the ancient traditions of the Gods, Mariana and Ameria have been raised separately by rival temples. But their complicated relationship is strained even further when the king declares only one of them can succeed him as queen. Now competing for the Kalian throne—and the heart of Ameria’s second-in-command, Kyle—the twins’ destinies are shepherded down a road of betrayal and treachery at every turn, each stalked by creatures charged by the Gods themselves to ensure neither strays from their destined path.

As primeval powers awaken, the two sisters must learn the truth behind an ancient prophecy and search for a way to change their inevitable fate as a voice growls through the darkness: Beware the Twins of Kale.

This boxset contains the first three books in the Rise of the Temple Gods series: Heir to Kale, Heir to Koloso, and Heir to the Defendants. The fourth book, Heir to the Prophecy, is coming in 2020.
