Summary

I have never put much stock in prophecy. I may serve as the goddess’s loyal daughter, but I make my own way in this world.

In an empire beset by violence and intrigue, to put your faith in anything beyond your own two hands means almost certain death. The blood embedded beneath my fingernails confirms it.

...But some destinies, you cannot outrun.

Meet Raziel’s mother Moriah, and learn her secret past in this short story prequel from the richly imagined Fatal Empire fantasy series by the author of the World of Lasniniar series, Jacquelyn Smith.

    A serial killer haunts a darkened land in a macabre contest of survival in book one of this horror fantasy trilogy. In 1999, the world is horribly altered by a mysterious, year-long phenomenon dubbed the Great Darkness. A serial killer known as the Family Man is drawn deep into this strange new landscape by the enigmatic Shepard of Wolves. As he receives clues to his fate through the powerful Red Dream, the Family Man goes searching for answers. A kill list contains the names of other monstrous killers, some even more infamous than the Family Man. They have been drawn into the Shepard's Game—the ultimate contest of death—and the prize is worth every drop of blood spilled in its name. But is this all a trap? Who is the Red Mother, and what does she want? Should the Family Man add the Shepard to his list? Striking the killers' names from his list one gruesome stroke at a time, the Family Man unravels the truth. But his own personal war against the waking world demands a heavy price—he must rouse the demons of his buried past.

    This alien bought a date at a charity auction. Now he thinks he owns her. 
    Purchased by a prince  
    When the Intergalactic Dating Agency hires Georgie to plan the first ever human-alien matchmaking soiree, Georgie thinks a charity auction for the local animal shelter will be the perfect ice-breaker. But to get the local singles to participate, she has to set an example, so she offers herself as one of the dates.
What she doesn’t expect is for her alien buyer to be so freakin’ hot. A few drinks in, and Georgie finds herself alone on a spaceship with a blue-skinned, muscle-bound male. 
    Misunderstood matchmaking  
    The Kirenai shapeshifters are known for the pleasure they give their bedmates, and Prince Arazhi is no exception. When his family insists it’s time for him to produce an heir, the last thing he wants is a jealous, power-hungry female weighing him down, so he heads to Earth. Human females are supposed to be pliant and fertile, willing to bear children without permanent bonds.
There, he spots a female with a regal bearing that makes his blood thrum hot. Better yet, it appears that she’s for sale. 
    But when Georgie not only refuses to be owned but also claims to be barren, Arazhi must choose. Will he follow his heart, or fulfill his duty?
