Saying our vows and becoming bonded mates was supposed to be the start of our “happily ever after”…
For most of my life, I’ve known that I was meant to be mated to Ryker Wolfson. We’ve hit some bumps along the way, but I finally decided I’d be better off following my heart over licking my wounded pride.
So, yeah, our Luna Ceremony was as eventful as the rest of our courtship. Ryker was challenged by his former Beta, and they had their fight to the death right beneath the moon. Ryker was left standing and I was mated in a bloody white dress.
Too bad Aleksander refused to accept my invite. My old vamp roomie would’ve gotten a kick out of that.
Still, now it’s official. I’m the Alpha female of the Mountainside Pack. Only I’m not just mated to the Alpha male—I’m a born Alpha myself and every wolf on the East Coast knows it.
Did I really expect that it wouldn’t get back to my birth pack? I might’ve ignored my bio-dad’s latest summons, but nothing says “go home” like his wolves snatching one of my packmates. And while I’m no fan of Trish Danvers, no way can I leave her with my cruel sperm donor and his goons.
I have to go. Without a Beta to watch over the pack, Ryker is forced to stay behind. He doesn’t like it, but he knows better than most that I can take care of myself.
I mean, he still has the scar over his heart to prove it.
But when I learn that my suspicions were right, that Trish’s abduction was a trap laid specifically for me, I have to rely on my belief that the moon got it right, that Ryker really is meant to be mine, and that we’ll be together forever.
Because one thing I know for sure? I won’t be able to take his rejection again…
Forever Mates is the third novel in the Claws and Fangs series, and the conclusion to Gem and Ryker’s story (though there will be more books in the series after this one!).
After my mate rejected me, I wanted to kill him. Instead, I ran away—which nearly killed me...
A year ago, everything was different. I had just left my home, joining the infamous Mountainside Pack. The daughter of an omega wolf, I've always been prized—but not as prized as I would be if my new packmates found out my secret.
But when my fated mate—Mountainside's Alpha—rejected me in front of his whole pack council and my secret got out, I realized I had one choice. Going lone wolf was the only option I had, and I took it.
Now I live in Muncie, hiding in plain sight. If the wolves ever left the mountains surrounding the city, I'd be in big trouble. Good thing that the truce between the vampires and my people is shaky at best and Muncie? It's total vamp territory. Thanks to my new vamp roomie, I get a pass, and I try to forget all about the call of the wolf. It's tough, though. I... I just can't forget my embarrassment—and my anger—from that night.
And then he shows up and my chance at forgetting flies out the damn window.
Ryker Wolfson. He was supposed to be my fated mate, but he chose his pack over our bond. At least, he did—but now that he knows what I've been hiding, he wants me back.
But doesn't he remember?
I told him I'll never be his mate, and there isn't a single thing he can do to change my mind.
To Ryker, that sounds like a challenge. And if there's one thing I know about wolf shifters, it's that they can never resist a challenge.
Just like I'm finding it more difficult than I should to resist him.
Never His Mate is a full-length PNR featuring Gemma Swann, a wolf shifter who is hiding a damning secret. When her fated mate rejects her for another female, her anger and her embarrassment lead to that secret getting out. Since staying behind on the mountains is just not an option and going back to her home pack is impossible, Gem decides she has one choice: risk death by fang in Muncie, the vamp town surrounding the mountains.
Luckily for her, she not only manages to survive the local vamps, but she makes friends with one. Things are looking up for her: she has a place with her roommate, a new job she loves, and the certainty that she'll never have to look at Ryker Wolfson's handsome face ever again.
Until he stalks into Muncie and, suddenly, Gem is confronted by his rejection all over again. So what if he says he had a good reason? If he thinks she's going to take him back now, he has another think coming.
Because Gem? She'll never be his mate...

I’ve always known that Ryker is my fated mate. What I didn’t know? Was that he’s always known he’s mine…
For as long as I can remember, I’ve been waiting for the Luna Ceremony that would make him my bonded mate. Though it’s not supposed to be possible, I’ve known since I was a kid that the future Alpha of the Mountainside Pack was fated to be mine. I figured my knowing had something to do with me being a rarity: a born female alpha.
Turns out that I’m half right. It’s not the female part, but an alpha thing. Because Ryker? For the last eleven years, he’s known exactly who I am to him.
Worse? The rejection that had me hiding out this past year was as planned as everything else he has his claws in. Ryker might’ve thought he was protecting me, but all he did was push me away—all because he forgot for a moment what I am.
Omega Gem is history. Long live the Alpha of Muncie.
Only I’m in a bit of trouble these days. He might’ve spent years keeping my secret for me, but it’s out now. An unforeseen betrayal in his pack has Ryker reeling, and me walking around with a big ol’ target on my back.
As if dealing with my infatuated roommate wasn’t bad enough. Now I have a powerful wolf chasing after me, desperate to claim me during the next full moon.
Not to mention the summons from my birth pack—and my old life. My sperm donor has discovered just how valuable I am, and since I’ve been “rejected” by Ryker, he wants me to go home for the first time since I was a pup.
Yeah? Well, I want him to drop dead.
And while I’m used to getting out of tougher scrapes than these, I’m beginning to see that—once again—I’m left with basically one option, and it isn’t running away.
Maybe it’s time that I accept that he’s always been my mate…
Always Her Mate is the second novel in the Claws and Fangs series. In a case of “better the devil you know”, Gem realizes that Ryker is her best chance at avoiding being forced into a mating she doesn’t want. It’s tough, though. Because while she’s always wanted him, her pride still can’t get over his rejection…
Sometimes fate gets it wrong.
When the Luna announced that I was fated to be the mate of the Western Pack's Alpha, Jack "Wicked Wolf" Walker, I knew that I would never survive him.
I'm an omega. Gentle by nature, all of my packmates thought I could temper his cruelty—but they were way wrong. As it is, it's all I can do to avoid being marked by him and tied to him for life. Luckily, my brute of a mate has a taste for females, and fully bonding me to him means that he won't get to hop from cabin to cabin while I pretend like I'm happy to be called his.
For three years, I walked a thin line between being Jack's plaything and his bonded mate. When I gave birth to his pup, I thought he might change, but I did the one thing that he considered unthinkable: I gave him a daughter.
Worse, I gave him the first female alpha since the Luna herself.
Not that he knows that. I manage to hide her true nature, passing her off as an omega just like me—until Jack discovers the truth, and I'm left with no choice but to leave.
I know he'll come after us. My mate is psychotic, he's vicious, and he's cruel. He thinks he owns me, and he'll kill my daughter if he can get his claws on her. And while I may be an omega, I'm also a wolf. I'll protect her, no matter what, and when I pass into the territory of a neighboring pack, I attack the first wolf I see.
Who just so happens to be the Alpha of the Lakeview Pack...
Leave Janelle is a prequel novella (35,000+ words) that is set approximately twenty-five years before the events of Never His Mate, and it's the story of Gemma's mother.
Janelle Walker feels like she's been cursed by the moon. An omega wolf, she is the fated mate of the infamous and cruel Jack "Wicked Wolf" Walker, the most powerful Alpha in the West. Rejected and cast aside when she bears him an omega pup, she decides it's time to take her own fate into her hands, Luna be damned—especially since her daughter has a secret. One that the Wicked Wolf will kill to discover, and the gentle omega Janelle will kill to protect.
This prequel is fully designed for adult readers. Trigger warnings include: domestic violence, mentions of sexual assault, harsh language, and murder (it's brought up, but occurs off-page).
The first time she died, he waged a war for her. If he's not careful, he'll do it all over again...To avoid spoilers, full description coming soon!
Hint of Her Blood is the next arc in the Claws and Fangs series. Aleks might have been convinced that Gem was his long lost love reborn, but that all changes when he meets Elizabeth and he realizes that it wasn't an alpha female he was searching for, but one that's Luna-touched.
So, I think my apartment is haunted.
Spooky things have been happening to me ever since I moved in last year. At first, I ignored them. Later, I got used to the idea that I shared my place with a ghost. I even called him Casper. We got along just fine.
Until a sexy hunk showed up the night before Halloween and told me that his name wasn’t Casper—it was Zack. And that, on All Hallow’s Eve, certain ghosts sometimes have the power to cross over into the human world. Which he did, because he loves me.
I’m in love.
The only problem?
She’s alive. And me?
I’m kinda not.
At least, I’m not on every day except for October 31st. Because on Halloween? Anything goes.
I want Dani. And even if it’s only for the one night when ghosts can cross over to the living world, I’ll take what I can get. Because I love a mortal, and it’s not just hocus pocus.
Danielle Williams doesn’t believe in ghosts. But this Halloween, after a year of watching over and falling in love with his mortal houseguest, Zack Banks is ready to prove that this particular ghost might just believe in her.
Halloween Boo is the first novella in the Holiday Hunks series. This steamy Halloween treat is chock full of paranormal romance, insta-love, over-the-top Halloween magic, and enough Hocus Pocus nods to make you cackle like a sexy witch in between moaning for more. A Sarah Spade HEA guaranteed!
The very next day you… stomped it into a million pieces and left town without a backward glance.
I know that’s not how the song goes. But, for me, that’s exactly what happened. I met the man of my dreams on Christmas Eve. We shared one magical night of passion and I thought—well, it doesn’t matter what I thought. Because, Christmas morning, he left me under the mistletoe and I never heard from him again.
Until he shows up at my best friend's apartment in the middle of December this year. And I discover that not only did I not know my mystery lover’s true name, I never knew his identity, either.
The one night stand I had last Christmas? He’s one of the partners for the firm I work for. So he’s my boss.
He’s my best friend’s brother.
It’s tough running a company. There’s no time for anything—and that includes falling in love. I haven’t been in a relationship in over a decade. It never used to bother me, though.
And then I met her.
With long legs, bright green eyes, and a body built for sin, I abandoned my "no distractions" policy and had my wicked way with her for the night. It didn’t take long for me to realize that I wanted more than that—but an emergency call had me on the first flight out of Salem.
By the time I could return to search out my Christmas lover, I realized that I had no way of finding her again. The name I moaned? It's not hers.
I don’t know why that bothers me so much considering I lied about my own.
Now she wants nothing to do with me. I don’t blame her.
Doesn’t mean that I’m going back to California without a fight. She says it's just sex? I'm willing to do everything I can—including playing the part of her new boyfriend for her visiting parents—to prove how wrong she is.
And how right I am for her.
This Christmas is the second novella in the Holiday Hunks series. A sweet yet undeniably steamy second chance/fake boyfriend contemporary romance with meddling family members, a wayward feline, and a spark of Christmas magic—and they'll need every bit of it to get these two workaholics together. A Sarah Spade HEA guaranteed!
When sparks fly, it's all too easy to be burned...
It seemed like the perfect job. My old high school was in need of an art teacher. I studied art in college.They were desperate.
I start in September.
Of course, that meant I had to leave my adopted city, trading New Jersey for Salem—even after I swore I would never return. Knowing I would need the summer to prepare, I moved back at the end of June, trying hard not to remember why I chose to stay away these last five years.
My high school sweetheart. The boy I used to love before he insisted on a “break” when I moved away to college. The man I can’t stop picturing naked now that we met again at Salem High's Fourth of July celebration.
Ugh. Did he have to grow into such a gorgeous guy? Because he is. He's absolutely delicious and I've been starving for a long, long time.
But I promised myself years ago that I would never get mixed up with Emile again. The past was where it belonged—behind me. Only, it’s kind of hard to believe that when he’s standing in front of me, offering me the only thing I ever wanted.
Felicity Houston was the one who got away. My if only. My I really screwed that one up.
Our split was mutual. When high school ended and Felicity got accepted to a college in New Jersey while I stayed in Salem, we decided to break things off. We were high school sweethearts, each other’s firsts in everything that counted, but I’d be lying if I said that I didn’t want to see what else was out there. I was a stupid kid who was thinking with the wrong head because, within months of my first semester, I insisted the break become permanent.
By the time I realized that there was no one out there that I wanted more than Felicity, she’d already given up on me. She had moved on and she made it very clear that I needed to do the same. I promised I would—and that’s when my brother got hit by a bus.
Zack was in a coma for two years. My love life got put on hold, I barely scraped by to earn my degree, and I spent all of my time keeping my family from falling apart. It was a miracle when Zack finally came out of his coma. It was an even bigger shock when he announced he was getting married within a month of leaving the rehab center. And it was a wake-up call that life can be over in an instant.If I want something?I have to go after it and take it.
Suddenly, after five years, Felicity is back in Salem. She got away from me once. This summer, I’m going to do everything I can to make her mine again.
When Sparks Fly is the sixth and final entry in the Holiday Hunk series. It’s a steamy contemporary novella with enough fireworks to light up the Fourth of July! A second chance romance with a determined hero, a wary heroine, a cop with a very poor sense of timing, plus a very interesting trip to the summer movies.
It's also a companion to Halloween Boo. The hero of this book is the brother of that one and some of the details referenced in this one are from that story.

When I find the weird golden coin during a trip into Boston, I pick it up and stick it in my pocket. I don’t think anything of it—I'm too busy fuming over the dark-haired, green-eyed bartender I just met. Sure, his Irish accent is to die for. But though he was handsome, he was rude, and I refuse to give him another thought as I drive back to Salem… until my front doorbell rings later that night and, suddenly, there he is.
That coin I found? It's his. He came all the way to my house to get it back. Then he actually has the nerve to suggest that I stole it from him!
As outraged as I am, I can't help but think he’s some kind of creepy stalker. The truth, however, is much worse.
He’s a… a leprechaun. Honest. The coin I found? It's his amulet. By finding it and offering to give it back, I supposedly triggered some weird rule that says that he owes me three wishes. And, with a stubborn set to his hard jaw, determination in his gaze, he refuses to leave until he’s granted all three of them.
Now if only I could wish that he would disappear.
Or that I really mean it when I tell him I want him to go...
Leprechauns are supposed to have all the luck. But I’m not a full-blooded leprechaun—I’m only half. And the half that I am is one hell of an unlucky schmuck.
Nothing goes my way. Ever. I’ve gotten used to it. I’ve given up hoping that it’ll ever change, or that some of my dad’s magic will rub off on me. In fact, I’ve tried to turn my back on my heritage. I got a job working at an Irish pub in Boston—okay, so maybe I do like to torture myself a bit, especially since it's my dad's pub—and gave up on the tiny amount of magic I had.
Until St. Patrick's Day. Until I lost my amulet.
I might not be a full-blooded leprechaun, but there are some laws I do have to obey. I have my own pot of gold hidden in my apartment, I wear a red coat—go Sox!—and if I’m captured, or my amulet is stolen, I owe the wily human who messed with me three wishes.
Enter Madison Scott. Blonde hair, baby blues, and a stick so far up her butt, it’ll be my pleasure to yank it out. I might have to grant her wishes—but there’s no rule saying how I have to do that.
Only one problem. Remember the whole unlucky schmuck thing? Right from the first wish, something goes wrong. The magic won’t let me leave until the wishes are done, and Madison doesn’t want me to stay. Too bad for her, though. She’s stuck with me.
And after a couple of days with her, there’s nowhere else I want to be.

I’m a cupid.
See the little ‘c’? It means that being a cupid is just my job, a way to earn a paycheck instead of riding a desk nine to five like every other guy. The benefits are great: I make my own schedule so long as I hit my quota, the company provides the magic arrow and my very own wings, and I get to watch people fall in love all the time. It’s awesome.
Okay, so maybe the gig has made me a little sappy. I can’t help it. It’s one of the dangers of being a cupid. That, and you start hoping that maybe there’s a perfect match for you out there somewhere.
I’ll never know, of course. Because that’s the one thing you give up when you take on the magic—a cupid arrow isn’t made to work on us. We make the matches, but we’re never in any of them.
All that changes on New Year’s Eve. I had just finished up my last match of the year when this woman appears out of nowhere and I accidentally poke myself with one of my own arrows. It disappears, even though it isn’t supposed to, and I’m so surprised that I try to take off.
And that’s when I realize that I lost my wings.
The night I see him running away from my cousin’s backyard, I think he’s a prowler. Or maybe a perv.
I never expect he would turn out to be Cupid!
And, okay, maybe I shouldn’t have followed him. He could’ve been some kind of a whack job—at first, I kind of already peg him as one—but I chase after him because why not? I have my Mace in one hand, my car keys in the other, and I figure I can take him. At the very least, I can warn him about sneaking peeks in my cousin’s window.
I find him down the block, staring at his empty hands and awkwardly trying to flap away. He looks so horrified, I don’t have the heart to Mace him for being a creep.
That’s when he drops the bomb.
He tells me that he’s Cupid and I actually believe him. I mean, it’s crazy and he’s probably laughing at how gullible I am, but I want to believe. After seeing how fast my cousin found love again, I love the idea that there’s Cupid out there making love matches.
Except this one’s kind of broken. Somehow, while I was chasing after him, he pricked himself with one of his arrows and now he’s lost all of his Cupid mojo.
So now we’re on a journey from Salem to Philly in the hopes that I can help Cole get his wings back. He can’t fly, and I have a car, so why not? He’s made it very clear that Cupid makes people fall in love with his magic arrows, but he’s immune. He literally can’t love anyone else while on the job.
Only one problem. He might not be able to fall in love.
I’m already halfway there.
I’m With Cupid is the fourth novella in the Holiday Hunks series. A funny yet sexy road trip/paranormal romance with a cupid who can’t love, a woman with a love of life, and a trip that neither one of them will ever forget. A Sarah Spade HEA guaranteed!
For Tristan Bloom, the answer to the question is: it all depends. He was supposed to spend the days leading up to the new year checking in on his partner, following up on some business, and deciding what he wanted to do about his father’s offer.
Then he met her…
I don’t know what’s worse: knowing that my old flame is suddenly engaged, or that my best friend and business partner is about to be. I mean, seriously? What is it about Salem, Massachusetts? I swear, it’s like Cupid has moved in among all the witches or something.
I’m determined not to get sucked in. My goal is to make sure Max is doing okay, check out Dani’s new fiancé, and then head back to California as single as I was when I arrived. So I fly across the country just in time for Christmas Eve—and the Christmas party that our Salem branch is throwing for our employees.
At least, I thought it was our party.
Who knew that the venue had two rented halls?
I should’ve thought something was weird when they handed me a mask, or when I didn’t recognize anyone at the party. Despite the costumes and the masks, I should’ve at least been able to find Max or Dani.
I didn’t, but I found her.
I was drawn to her immediately. Couldn’t stay away. We danced together, laughed together, and I even stole a kiss when I steered her beneath a sprig of mistletoe.
Then midnight struck, my Cinderella panicked, and she was gone.
I have one week until I have to return to California and face my father. Until then, I plan on spending every minute I have searching for that girl.
It was my cousin’s idea.
Sheila knew how much this last year sucked for me. I flunked out of school in April, my fiancé dumped me in September, and the store I managed went bankrupt and closed down right before the holidays.
To say I was in a funk was putting it mildly. Christmas was one emotional train wreck after the other. I just wanted to lock myself in my room, drown in chocolate, and pretend that this past year never happened.
I had no plans for Christmas Eve. I was avoiding my family—except for Sheila. That woman is impossible to dodge and I know ‘cause I tried.
Instead, I let her talk me into crashing a party that the company she worked for was catering. It was a crazy Christmas masquerade with all the guests wearing masks.No one would know who I was, and if I found a man under the mistletoe… well, why not?
One problem. I did find a stranger under the mistletoe. And the kiss he gave me? Wow.
So why did I bolt from the party before I could even give him my name? Beside the obvious fact that I wasn’t even invited to it?
Because I’m Lindy Walsh. And, no matter what I touch—or who I kiss—I’ll inevitably screw it up.
I always do.
