Book 0: Fantasy Lover
Reader, Being trapped in a bedroom with a woman is a grand
thing. Being trapped in hundreds of bedrooms over two
thousand years isn't. And being cursed into a book as a
love-slave for eternity can ruin even a Spartan warrior's
As a love-slave, I knew everything about women. How to
touch them, how to savor them, and most of all how to
pleasure them. But when I was summoned to fulfill Grace
Alexander's sexual fantasies, I found the first woman in
history who saw me as a man with a tormented past. She,
alone, bothered to take me out of the bedroom and into the
world. She taught me to love again.
But I was not born to
know love. I was cursed to walk eternity alone. As a
general, I had long ago accepted my sentence. Yet now I have
found Grace-the one thing my wounded heart cannot survive
without. Sure, love can heal all wounds, but can it break a
two thousand year old curse?

Book 1: Night Pleasures
Have you ever wanted to know what it's like to be immortal?
To journey through the night stalking the evil that preys on
humans? To have unlimited wealth, unlimited power? That is
my existence, and it is dark and dangerous. I play hero to
thousands, but am known to none. And I love every minute of
Or so I thought until one night when I woke up handcuffed to
my worst nightmare: a conservative woman in a button-down
shirt. Or in Amanda's case, buttoned all the way up to her
chin. She's smart, sexy, witty, and wants nothing to do with
the paranormal-in other words, me.
My attraction to Amanda Devereaux goes against everything I
stand for. Not to mention the last time I fell in love it
cost me not only my human life, but also my very soul. Yet
every time I look at her, I find myself wanting to try
again. Wanting to believe that love and loyalty do exist.
Even more disturbing, I find myself wondering if there's any
way a woman like Amanda can love a man whose battle scars
run deep, and whose heart was damaged by a betrayal so
savage that he's not sure it will ever beat again.
Kyrian of Thrace
Book 2: Night Embrace
Life is great for me. I have my chicory coffee, my warm
beignets, and my best friend on the cell phone. Once the sun
goes down, I am the baddest thing prowling the night: I
command the elements, and I know no fear. For centuries,
I've protected the innocent and watched over the mankind,
making sure they are safe in a world where nothing is ever
certain. All I want in return is a hot babe in a red dress,
who wants nothing more from me then one night.
Instead, I get a runaway Mardi Gras float
that tries to turn me into roadkill and a beautiful woman
who saves my life but can't remember where she put my pants.
Flamboyant and extravagant, Sunshine Runningwolf should be
the perfect woman for me. She wants nothing past tonight, no
ties, no long-term commitments.
But every time I look at her, I start
yearning for dreams that I buried centuries ago. With her
unconventional ways and ability to baffle me, Sunshine is
the one person I find myself needing. But for me to love her
would mean her death. I am cursed never to know peace or
happiness-not so long as my enemy waits in the night to
destroy us both.
Talon of the Morrigantes
Book 3: Dance With The Devil
Zarek's Point of View:
Dark-Hunter: A soulless guardian who stands between mankind
and those who would see mankind destroyed. Yeah, right. The
only part of that Code of Honor I got was eternity and
Insanity: A condition many say I suffer from after being
alone for so long. But I don't suffer from my insanity-I
enjoy every minute of it.
Trust: I can't trust anyone...not even myself. The only
thing I trust in is my ability to do the wrong thing in any
situation and to hurt anyone who gets in my way.
Truth: I endured a lifetime as a Roman slave, and 900 years
as an exiled Dark-Hunter. Now I'm tired of enduring. I want
the truth about what happened the night I was exiled-I have
nothing to lose and everything to gain.
Astrid (Greek, meaning star): An exceptional woman who can
see straight to the truth. Brave and strong, she is a point
of light in the darkness. She touches me and I tremble. She
smiles and my cold heart shatters.
Zarek: They say even the most damned man can be forgiven. I
never believed that until the night Astrid opened her door
to me and made this feral beast want to be human again. Made
me want to love and be loved. But how can an ex-slave whose
soul is owned by a Greek goddess ever dream of touching, let
alone holding, a fiery star?
Book 4: Kiss Of The Night
What do you get when you have one immortal Viking warrior no
one can remember five minutes after he leaves their
presence, a princess on the run for her life, and one
seriously annoyed demigod? Basically, you get my life.
It started out simple enough. One night I went to save a
woman in trouble. The next thing I knew, the doorway to hell
had opened and out stepped Daimons-vampires the likes of
which I'd never seen before. Led by the son of Apollo, they
are out to end the curse that has banished them all to
darkness. The only problem with that is they have to kill
Cassandra Peters to do it and if she dies, so dies the sun,
the earth and all who dwell here. Life's just a bowl full of
cherries, ain't it?
Brought together by fate, it's now my job to protect a
daughter of the very race I have been hunting for centuries.
Neither of us dares to trust the other. But she is the only
one who remembers me... More than that, with her courage and
strength, she is the only one who has ever touched a heart
that I thought had died centuries ago.
The only way for a Dark-Hunter to regain his soul is through
the love of a woman. But what happens when that woman isn't
Book 5: Night Play
McTierney has had it with men. They're cheap, self-centered,
and never love her for who she is. But though she prides
herself on being independent, deep down she still yearns for
a knight in shining armor.
She just never expected her knight in shining armor to have
a shiny coat of fur...
Deadly and tortured, Vane Kattalakis isn't what he seems.
Most women lament that their boyfriends are dogs. In Bride's
case, hers is a wolf. A Were-Hunter wolf. Wanted dead by his
enemies, Vane isn't looking for a mate. But the Fates have
marked Bride as his. Now he has three weeks to either
convince Bride that the supernatural is real or he will
spend the rest of his life neutered--something no
self-respecting wolf can accept...
But how does a wolf convince a human to trust him with her
life when his enemies are out to end his? In the world of
the Were-Hunters, it really is dog-eat-dog. And only one
alpha male can win.
Book 6: Seize The Night
I was born the noble son of a legendary Roman senator. I
walked through the ancient world as a general, admired and
supreme until a brutal betrayal caused me to bargain my
soul. Now I'm an immortal Dark-Hunter, bound to protect
mankind from the evil scourge that haunts it. Over the
centuries, I've seen many frightening things: plagues,
pestilence, disco music...
And now Tabitha Devereaux. A human, she has trained herself
to fight vampires every bit as capably as any Dark-Hunter.
Idiosyncratic and off-beat, she is my personal bane-and yet
she beguiles me. There are only two small problems. She
happens to be the twin of my mortal enemy's wife. More than
that, Tabitha and her sister are being stalked by a power
that will not rest until everyone she holds dear is dead.
Unlike my Dark-Hunter brethren, I rely on no one but myself.
They spurned me and I turned my back on them. But the only
way to save Tabitha and her family is to find some way to
bridge a two thousand-year-old feud.
They say opposites attract, but can they stay together when
even the Fates conspire to keep them apart? Then again, the
Fates have never dealt with the likes of Tabitha Devereaux
before. They're going to be in for quite a fight...
Book 7: Sins Of The Night
the realm of the Dark-Hunters there is a code of honor that
even immortal bad boys must follow:
Harm no human. Drink no blood. Never fall in love.
But every now and again a Dark-Hunter thinks himself above
the Code. That's when I'm summoned. Who am I? I'm the one
thing the fearless fear. Step over the line and it's my
wrath you will face. Nothing can touch me. Nothing can sway
me. I am relentless and unfeeling.
Or so I thought until I met a female Dark-Hunter who goes by
the name of Danger-it's not just her name, it's how she
lives her life. She doesn't trust me at all. And who could
blame her? She alone knows that I'm here to be judge, jury
and most likely executioner of her friends. Yet she is my
key to saving some of them. Without her, they all will die.
Dangereuse St. Richard is a deadly distraction. Something
about her is reawakening a heart I thought was long dead.
But in a race against evil, the only hope mankind has is
that I do my duty. And how can I do my duty when it means
that I will have to sacrifice the only woman I've ever

where she feels like an outsider. But the world of rich and
powerful humans is never to meet the world of the
Were-Hunters who exist side by side with them, unseen,
unknown, undetected. To break this law is to call down a
wrath of the highest order.
In order to have Marguerite, Wren must
fight not just the humans who will never accept his animal

endangering their world. It's a race against time and magic
without boundary that could cost Marguerite and Wren not
