Rules are meant to be broken... Unless breaking them tears an entire family apart.
I'm the cool headed one. The rule-follower. The non-hormonal-raging wolf.
This pack needs someone like me. We've fought creatures of the night, psychotic families and dealt with magic and the unbelievable. We're all thick as thieves, and the worst thing that could happen is getting kicked out of this pack.
Which is why breaking rules is not my thing.
So why does Elle make me want to throw it all away?
And why is it my stupid, idiotic wolf does exactly that...before I've even had a taste of her lips?
Now we've got more on our hands than a love story with bad timing. Cause the shite about to go down in Rockland Creek has just hit boiling point - and I'm the catalyst.
He barges in like he owns my destiny, and yeah it's hot as sin. That Irish accent, those gorgeous eyes, it'd be easy to fall for it.
Only I don't. I may look as sweet as the baked goods I sell, but there are thorns under this armor Finn has no idea about. Things he cannot know about, or I'll end up in the looney bin like my mom. And then things get really complicated when Tytus is added to the mix, telling me stories I can't believe. They're fable, myths....but before long I'm spiraling into a web so thick I don't know which way is up. And when the one person I can trust is hunted by a demon from his past, I'm left to rely on myself to figure it out. But what if I make the wrong choice?
*Book III in a paranormal shifter series filled with werewolves of all kinds, feisty females who stand up to them, and enough suspense to make it interesting. Can be read as standalone.*
Beautiful and nuanced as it is dangerous, the manners of Regency and Victorian England blend into a scintillating fusion of urban fantasy and court intrigue.
Between Mundanus, the world of humans, and Exilium, the world of the Fae, lies the Nether, a mirror-world where the social structure of 19th-century England is preserved by Fae-touched families who remain loyal to their ageless masters. Born into this world is Catherine Rhoeas-Papaver, who escapes it all to live a normal life in Mundanus, free from her parents and the strictures of Fae-touched society. But now she’s being dragged back to face an arranged marriage, along with all the high society trappings it entails.
Crossing paths with Cathy is Max, an Arbiter of the Split Worlds treaty with a dislocated soul who polices the boundaries between the worlds, keeping innocents safe from the Fae. After a spree of kidnappings and the murder of his fellow Arbiters, Max is forced to enlist Cathy’s help in unravelling a high-profile disappearance within the Nether. Getting involved in the machinations of the Fae, however, may prove fatal to all involved.
“BETWEEN TWO THORNS shows the darkness beneath the glamour of the social Season. Learning to be a young lady has never seemed so dangerous.”—Mary Robinette Kowal, Hugo Award-winning fantasy author
“Emma Newman is an extraordinary new voice in SF/F.”—Paul Cornell, Hugo Award winner and author of LONDON FALLING and SAUCER COUNTRY
Her secrets can set us free
After a disastrous laboratory accident, exobotanist Dr. ShaylaRam Gomez is desperate to redeem herself in the eyes of the scientific community, and more importantly, her beloved father. But now, with her carefully nurtured study of new black bean seeds in tatters, Shayla is banished to a dishonorable tour of the Obsidian Rim worlds with the man responsible for destroying her reputation – the brawny farmer from some backwater planetoid, Dr. Rahim Xie.
The people who freed Rahim from a lifetime of slavery are struggling under crushing debt to the Earth’s Conservatory, and Rahim has vowed to save these destitute Prithvi and Rim farmers. He’ll even steal classified research on sustainable crops from his irascible mentor Grumpy Gomez. When he discovers that meticulous Shayla has a hidden maverick streak, Rahim is tempted to enlist her aid. He needs more than her secrets; he needs her and her brilliant mind to help his cause. But how can he ask Shayla to join a revolution that will pit her against her own father – a man known for his political ruthlessness?
Forced together with their dogbot and humanoid companions, they'll travel to the edges of a decaying galaxy to fight the corporate greed that is slowly starving the worlds of the Rim. Are these scientists planting the seeds of their own destruction -- or will their reluctant collaboration blossom into something beyond mere coexistence?
Before the vogue of apocalyptic fiction really took off, in 1932 Dennis Wheatley researched and imagined a party of would-be survivors in the glow of a pending comet on course to collide with planet earth.
Astronomers could see it coming, civilians could slowly feel the effect of its rays tuning into their baser violent or passionate instincts, but what action would the government take amongst the rumours in such uncertainty? Evacuate the cities under martial law and risk national panic and chaos, or simply deny knowledge to maintain order in the hope that scientific predictions would prove false?
For millionaire Sam Curry, and his young wife and Hollywood starlet, Lavina, on learning of the prediction that they may have only sixty days to enjoy their new marriage, money is no object in taking measures to ensure their survival. Over dinner with a select group of family and friends, they decide a gyroscopic ark may see them through any eventualities, and go about ordering in materials without raising suspicion, and trying to live a normal life until the potential moment of impact grew near. But could they all be trusted to keep themselves and the ark safe from a nation already starting to panic, loot and riot?
And if they are to survive, what state will the planet be left in? Will the millions of corpses decay into airborne disease that would wipe out anyone left? Where and how will they settle to create a new civilisation? When nothing is certain and nothing remains, will any of the survivors be able to survive each other?
Shifts happen. Hearts change. Africa awaits.
Summoned to Kenya by a dying witch, Grace Elkhart can’t wait to leave. She agrees to stay only long enough to help her cousin Emma establish some law and order in Nairobi. Being a Demon, Grace has the power to do that. But settle down? Join Emma’s Pride? There are too many reasons against it, starting with Jed Kiprop, the only man to ever break her Demon heart.
As a lion Shifter, Jed knows he needs to join a Pride… eventually. Now that his eldest brother King has formed one, it should be an easy choice. Except his brother’s mate has a Demon in her family. And that’s one Paranorm Jed refuses to share space with, especially when it’s Grace, a woman he once loved before she betrayed him.
When a family tragedy and a king’s command force Jed and Grace to work together, sparks fly despite their mutual distrust. But will they be able to overcome their pride and prejudice in time to save the Pride and each other from an ancient enemy?
Join the Kiprop Pride and escape to a land where everything is possible. Start your adventure today!

That hot guy tied to Lissianna Argeneau's bed? He's not dessert—he's the main course!
Lissianna has been spending her centuries pining for Mr. Right, not just a quick snack, and this sexy guy she finds in her bed looks like he might be a candidate. But there's another, more pressing issue: her tendency to faint at the sight of blood . . . an especially annoying quirk for a vampire. Of course it doesn't hurt that this man has a delicious-looking neck. What kind of cold-blooded vampire woman could resist a bite of that?
Dr. Gregory Hewitt recovers from the shock of waking up in a stranger's bedroom pretty quickly—once he sees a gorgeous woman about to treat him to a wild night of passion. But is it possible for the good doctor to find true love with a vampire vixen, or will he be just a good meal? That's a question Dr. Greg might be willing to sink his teeth into . . . if he can just get Lissianna to bite.
