Vampland is a hedonist’s playground. It’s the hottest new dance club in town and Dara Ellis’s inspiration for showing women how to embrace the bad girl within. But it’s the club’s owner who really gets her pulse racing, first in lust and then in fear when she learns who–and what–he really is. Trey is far more than a creature of the night. He’s a flesh and blood man with gifts given from a higher power. Only the love of the right woman can save his soul from the darkness growing closer. But will Dara take a chance on a creature as much myth as man? Or will fear deny the love burning brightly between them?
In 2647, only ten percent of the population marries, and most of those nuptials are business related. Sierra Merritt, heir to Merritt Industrial, is married to her job. She doesn’t want another “husband” of any kind, and certainly not a Tergonian Shifter. Jonathan Bain Wright III, a Tergonian Shapeshifter and major shareholder in Wright Transport, completely agrees.
Neither bride nor groom wishes to marry a partner sight unseen and think a merger should end at the business level. Unfortunately, their shareholders don’t agree. Trying to indulge in their last few days of freedom before they’re forced to meet and marry, they each visit a nightclub with pleasure in mind. But when her bridal shower and his bachelor party intersect, they find themselves naked, happy, and in each others’ arms.
When the unthinkable happens, they have to wonder. Can a Shifter find a traditional happily-ever-after with a human who makes him feel what no human should? And can said human convince him her love is real?
A FAMILIAR FACE
Trade witch Mallory West is a heartbeat from losing her rent-controlled apartment, susses spells for a living, and can’t afford a decent familiar. In an effort to ease her financial hardship, she works part-time waiting tables. Late one night after working an unexpected shift, she receives an invitation from her boss to take a rest upstairs n the exclusive Lounge. Drawn to a mysterious black door, she enters and takes a well deserved nap.
But the world to which she wakes is nothing like the one she left. The large, incredibly sexy gray-skinned warrior she meets could be her boss’s twin, but he’s the war leader of the Talians–a fierce race fighting desperately to survive a crushing enemy. Mallory’s sudden appearance stuns the wary Talians.
And they don’t tolerate surprises or those they think might be enemy spies well…at all.
