Death, Christabel thought bitterly. An inescapable fate that, for her, would remain forever elusive.

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?

After joining forces with the local vampire clan, Hayden turned on his master, betraying the man he had sworn to eternally obey. However, before the villain could be laid to permanent rest, Caleb vanished.

Katherine fell hard for Hayden’s protective nature, while his mysterious aura captivated her. Yet after only a single night in his arms, Hayden pushed her away, stating their love could never be. Confused by the rejection, Katherine struggled to move forward, left with no options but to deny her heart the battered soul it craved.

Now, Caleb has returned, set on delivering vengeance against both the man who betrayed him, and the catalyst for his defection. Katherine and Hayden must discover a way to avoid Caleb’s evil intent, while determining if there is any future for their love.

Princess of the Rose – Now Available!

PrincessoftheRose-KindlePrincess of the Rose:

Black Rose VI

Of all the codes they teach us…

those of duty, honor, trust, loyalty…

none ever speak of love.

The story is well-known. A Lorcan princess, who died at the hands of a wicked prince. And the captain, whose quest for vengeance knew no bounds.

But what if her death had been an elaborate plot? 

Instead of murder, Princess Liza is taken captive by the cruel-hearted Prince Nicholi, with the reluctant assistance of Captain Erik, of the Muir Court Guard. Focused entirely on his own aspirations, the prince demands Liza consent to become his rose bride, which would place both her eternal soul, and her kingdom, in his pitiless grasp.

As the prince awaits his answer with failing patience, Liza’s only comfort comes in a  guarded friendship with the Muir captain; a man torn between obeying the sacred vows of knighthood and his desire to protect the princess he has come to love.

Enraged beyond reason when discovering Erik’s devotion to the woman he considers his property, Nicholi forces Liza to make an impossible choice.
