Becoming a vampire wasn’t part of his plan.


I never imagined I’d be involved with a woman like Mistress Catalina. She’s out of my league. I’m beginning to learn that Catalina leads a dark life- that she’s part of an underworld much more terrifying than organized crime, dealing with creatures scarier than the ones in monster movies.

I’m not sure I want to be part of it anymore. Yet I can’t just walk away. I’ve fallen in love with her, but she wants something from me thatI’m not ready to give up.


Kevin is just like any other human working in one of my clubs: weak, mortal, delicious. However, there’s something about him that intrigues me. After more than a century of life, it takes someone special to garner my attention. He’s given me one hell of a chase, and now I’ve decided to add him to my family.

The problem is Kevin isn’t ready to submit, and I’m not ready to give him up. No one denies the Vampire Queen. I *always* get what I want.


The fate of Hell and Earth is at stake….

Amon Zoth, Prince of Hell, has only one path to victory against the army of demonic mages who could destroy him and all of existence: Find the human witch they call Shelby Mithras who lives on the Earth sphere, in a land called Kentucky.

After opening a portal between the spheres and luring Shelby to Hell, Amon learns that Shelby doesn’t know how to use her magic to its full potential, so he takes it upon himself to train her. He never imagined he’d be able to find common ground with a human, or that he’d be willing to move Hell and Earth to save her.

Shelby Mithras and her roommate Max are certain their small house on Elmcrest Lane is haunted. Little did they know there was a Hell mouth in their basement, or that the demons within it needed Shelby’s help.

After Shelby learns that she is the one who can help Amon Zoth save existence from certain destruction, she has no choice but let the arrogant demon prince teach her demonic magic. She never thought in a million years that she would give anything to see him again.


Not being a witch isn’t an option when you’re Coven Born.

I wasn’t raised a witch.

I didn’t even know I was coven-born until my parents died, allegedly from a curse. After being uprooted from San Francisco and moved across the country to Upstate New York to live with my uncle, I was thrust into a world of witches and magick.

Yeah – real witches and real magick. IKR?

Now, my eccentric uncle believes I have some kind of rare magick and the only way to find out is by sending me to the prestigious Thirteen Covens Academy where I will be trained to‘ meet my potential’, whatever that means. Just what I needed – a school full of rich, snooty kids. I have bigger things to worry about than my alleged rare witch powers.

First–there’s Carrie Ambrose–the resident mean girl who calls me ‘charity case’ and keeps trying to get a lock of my hair.

Second–the fact that Blaine Adams, the hottest, most popular guy at school asked me out, much to the fury of every popular girl in a one-hundred-mile radius.

Third–the rumors that my entire family is cursed and the only reason I’m alive is because the coven is doing spells to protect me.

My only ally (and that’s being generous) is the queen of the outcasts, Lisa Spears, who’s “serving time“ at the academy after doing something the coven high council didn’t like. Despite the mark she wears, or the insults from the other students – she has an entourage of hot guys who follow her everywhere, including the awkward, nerdy guy Eric–who’s always flirting with me. And the awkward, goth guy, Gary–who’s always flirting with me. And the awkward metal-head, Josh–who’s always flirting with me.

I’ll be eighteen in a few weeks–old enough to decide if I want to stick with the Academy until I graduate, or leave my previously estranged family and its legacy behind…
