About the Book:
When fairy tales turn into nightmares…
Ellie Aubrey has spent most of her unnaturally long life hiding her extraordinary abilities from the world. On the run from the shapeshifting wolves who murdered her family, she risks discovery in order to secretly watch over another group of similarly gifted people, determined they won’t suffer the same fate.
Alex Jenner has come home to protect his family from an unknown danger lurking in the woods. Suspicious of the new girl in town, he challenges Ellie in ways that will spark one of two possible outcomes: they’ll spontaneously combust, or she’ll lose control of the one power she’s fought so hard to contain.
In this fairy tale, the dragon the prince must slay is also the princess who holds his heart.
Alex gave her an adorable lopsided grin, and her heartbeat picked up in response. “I also just

finished a run.”

“In this weather?” Ellie teased. She was rewarded with a deep chuckle that danced up and

down her spine.

“Hey, maybe we could run together some time,” he suggested. Ellie gave silent thanks that

he hadn’t noticed her reaction to him.

“Maybe….” Ellie nodded and smiled to take the sting out of what could’ve been perceived

as a rejection.

Suddenly he leaned forward and touched her arm lightly. “You do that a lot, you know.”

Trying not to pull away from his touch, it was Ellie’s turn to raise her eyebrows in surprise.

“Do what?”

“Answer with something vague.” He sat back, letting her breathe normally again.

“Do I?” Ellie feigned surprise. Impressive. Most people don’t even notice when I’m giving

vague answers.

“There you go again!”

“Huh.” Ellie grimaced and tried a different approach. “I don’t even notice I’m doing it. I

guess I don’t talk about myself much in general.” Especially to hot guys who have no clue who I

really am.

“Fair enough.” Alex let her off the hook with good-natured grace. “So back to that run?”

Ellie laughed. Clearly she wasn’t going to get away with keeping her distance. Not that she

wanted to. She was just trying to avoid further complication. And Alex Jenner had the potential

to be a rather major complication.

About the Book:
Selene sacrificed everything when she took her brother’s place as ruler of the Vyusher—including her secret love for one-time adversary Griffin Aubrey. When nightmares that are just a little too real start, Selene fears she’s turned into a cold-blooded killer…the monster Griffin thinks she is.
Griffin and Ellie Aubrey are finally safe for the first time in over a hundred years, and Griffin doesn’t want to easily forgive the woman he blames for killing his family. But when an unknown menace drives Selene to leave her people and seek their help, Griffin must decide.
Can he move past his hatred of everything she is? Or will the bond that could bring them both the greatest joy now be the source of their deepest despair?

Through a grey swirling mist, Griffin heard Selene’s husky voice calling his name. He

realized he was dreaming.

“Go away!” he called out to the emptiness surrounding him, as he swiveled his head around

looking for her.

“Griffin, please,” she pleaded.

He clenched his jaw. “You’re the one who controls dreams, Selene. You clear this up.”

“I don’t control dreams, really. I visit. Let me in, and you’ll clear it up yourself.”

The wisps of cloud and fog drifted away. Rays of sunlight broke through. Suddenly, Griffin

was standing in a field of wheat with a brilliant blue sky above him. He felt no heat or cold or

breeze, saw no movement and no end to the vast golden landscape. He glanced down and

realized he was clothed in casual jeans and a t-shirt–similar to what he’d worn earlier that day.

“Well?” he prodded. “Come on. Show yourself.”

“I’m right here.”

Griffin spun around at the sound of Selene’s voice directly behind him. She stood placidly,

adorned in a flowing, pale purple sundress that made her look delicate and sweet, the exact

opposite of what he knew her to be.

Selene smiled. “Thanks for the pretty dress.” But her face froze when she caught Griffin’s

hostile glare. She sighed. “Won’t you talk to me? We could always talk here…in our dreams.”

Griffin crossed his arms over his chest and scowled, attempting to disguise the fact that his

silence was due in part to Selene’s beauty. She’d always taken his breath away. “But these aren’t

our dreams, are they?” he muttered. “This is you invading my dream.”

About the Book:
Lila Jenner left her family to start a new life away from Ramsey Pierce. After decades of rejection, she needs the chance to discover who she is without him. Helping to rebuild relationships between tribes of Svatura is just the opportunity she needs.
Determined that the fire raging inside him will never harm Lila, Ramsey denies the magical bond that could be theirs alone. But when an old enemy resurfaces and Lila disappears, he realizes he’ll do anything to win her back and make her his.
However, Maddox, driven by a centuries-old quest for revenge, is stronger than any of them ever imagined. Friends and enemies must band together against this shared threat. Even then, they may discover too late that one dragon is not always enough…
“Ramsey, stop!”

He kept going.

Lila knew what she had to do. Taking a calming breath, she closed her eyes and pulled on

every ounce of the power within her. She pictured a mountain stream, peaceful, cool, and

soothing. Then she pushed those feelings inside Ramsey, directly into the center of his soul.


Desperation clawing at her, she did the only other thing she could think to. She wrapped her

arms around his neck and laid her lips against his, pushing her calming effect through the more

intimate connection. At first he didn’t respond, but gradually, his steps faltered, slowed, and then

stopped. And the lips under hers changed from unresponsive to drugging in a nanosecond. Joy

surged as he kissed her with a passion equal to the rage that had held him captive only moments

earlier. He wasn’t in control. Not yet. But closer.

With a groan, he jerked back to stare down at her with wild eyes, still not fully focused.

Underneath her hand she could feel the frantic beating of his heart, like a bird trapped in a cage.

She reached up and took his face in her hands. He looked down, and his eyes slowly focused,

recognition lit the green depths.

“Lila,” he gasped.

About the Book:
Only oblivion can stop her pain.
Adelaide Jenner feels nothing… she is completely numb inside. Her fated love abandoned her and joined their enemy. On that day her sister turned off all Adelaide’s emotions in order to save her from a heartbreak that could push her over the edge of sanity. But the great power she claims, wielded without compassion or love, can only lead to pain.
Nate Pierce believes Adelaide used her extraordinary powers to deceive him all these years. So he destroyed a relationship he thought to be false and hungers for revenge. Now, Nate serves Maddox, unaware that his new leader is using him as a pawn in a bid to enslave or kill all Svatura.
The only hope of finally defeating Maddox is for Adelaide and her sisters to combine their growing powers against him. But the key to a Svatura’s power is the heart, and Adelaide is still missing hers.
“You can’t be here,” she said in a low, raspy voice.

“Don’t be afraid. I won’t hurt you…. I just saved you!”

She raised her gaze to his, and Nate was stunned to see her green eyes were now glowing

bright yellow.

“You don’t understand,” she whispered. “I could really hurt you. You need to leave.

Nate took a step closer to her. He could see that her slender body was quaking from head

Adelaide held up both her hands. “I can’t hold it in much longer. You really need to go.”

The anguish in her voice concerned him. He could tell she was terrified, but it seemed to be for

him, not because of him. She bent over and put her hands on her knees, sucking air into her lungs

as fast as she could.

Nate took a step closer but hesitated. She’s a con artist, don’t forget.

But he also wasn’t exactly sure what was happening to her. As far as he knew, none of

her powers were actually dangerous.

Suddenly Adelaide fell to her hands and knees. He could see her chest heaving as she

struggled for control. Nate acted on pure instinct. Tapping into his speed, he was at her side in

less than a blink. He wrapped his strong arms around her from behind, sat down on the ground,

and pulled her in tightly to his body. Leaving one armed wrapped around her midriff, he started

running his other hand through her hair in a soothing gesture.

Now that he was touching her, Nate was amazed her shaking wasn’t rattling her very

bones. It was that violent. Definitely not faking it.

“Breathe.” Come on.

“I… can’t,” she choked out. He knew that if he could see her face, tears would be

streaming down her cheeks. And he didn’t like it. It reminded him way too much of his dreams.

But he couldn’t think about that right now.
