    Phoebe can read minds but she was never able to read her back story. All her life, Phoebe thought she was an orphan when she actually wasn't. That discovery came through Apollo, a handsome visitor of her fortune-telling shop. This ravishing hunk of a man was about to change Phoebe's mediocre existence.  
    Book 2 - The Shifter

    Phoebe and Supay make a deal with Juno to stop the infighting among the daemons. But at what price? Now Phoebe is with Apollo. Desperate to get her back, Supay considers Juno's new deal. To win back Phoebe's love, Supay will need to be unfaithful to her.  
    Book 5 - Exposed 
    Hiding away in Peru, Supay and Phoebe start their own family. Meanwhile, Apollo, heart-broken and lost, is lured into another one of Juno's schemes. If Apollo accepts the deal, the love of his life may resent him for the rest of his natural life. If he doesn't take the deal, she is lost to him forever.  
    Book 6 - The Beginning 
    As preparations for the war between daemons are made, everyone must choose sides. Siding temporarily with Apollo, Juno looks back on her life to figure out how she arrived at this moment. As she sifts through memories of the past, a dark stranger stands out. How far will young Juno go with her new love? More importantly, will her mother, Circe, discover the secret tryst? 
    Book 7 - The Treachery 
    When young Juno's love for Supay is discovered, Juno rushes to conceal her lover's name. Unwilling to sacrifice Supay to her mother's wrath, Juno does the only thing that she can to save her love… lie. At the heart of the matter is one question: To what lengths will Juno go to secure the safety of Supay and her unborn child? 
    Book 8 - Duplicity 
    Juno adjusts to blissful motherhood but like everything else in her life, this newfound happiness does not last. Before long, Circe discovers her daughter’s lies and gives her an ultimatum. As Juno races to protect her loved ones from Circe, she makes a final choice that could leave her perpetually unhappy.  
    Book 9 - Reconnaissance 
    Juno is frustrated by her inability to scry and reveal what the Greek daemons are plotting. She needs to get up close to view the action. Concerned that Juno will slip into her normal hyper-sexual siren ways, Apollo makes her promise to return within a few days. Will Juno be able to resist her base instincts? More importantly, will she get to the fortress and return without being spotted?   
    Book 10 - The Interrogation 
    Alone in the dungeon, Juno tries to hide her fear. If Apollo thinks that she ran off, then no one will ever come to look for her in this dark cavern. As her fear mounts, she holds on to the hope that Phoebe or Supay will take pity on her. Before that can happen, she has to come clean to Supay about her past.

    Taken by the Earl 
    After attending the wedding of one of her closest friends, and celebrating the betrothal of another, Mrs. Felicity Randall is looking forward to spending a peaceful summer at her house in the country. Several months when she may do and say as she wishes, without having to constantly be aware of her place in London Society as the respectable young widow of Major Stephen Randall. 
    But before Fliss can manage her escape to the country, she overhears a conversation in which two people discuss the murder of the new Earl of Winterbourne. Unable to see or identify either the man or the woman from her hiding place, but aware of where the murder is to take place, Fliss finds her plans for the summer changed completely, and requiring she procure an invitation to the infamous house party hosted every summer by the notorious Lady Eccles. A house party at which no respectable widow would normally dare to show her face.  
     
    Sinclair Montgomery has no time or patience for London society, as it had no tolerance for his mother so many years ago when she eloped with her Scottish Highlander, Sin’s own father. But when Sin unexpectedly inherits the title of the Earl of Winterbourne, he has no choice but to go to England to view his new estates. It was certainly not his intention, once there, to find himself the guest at a summer house party. Although the rumors of debauchery and licentious behavior to be had there were certainly enough to pique his interest. 
     
    Finding the beautiful Mrs. Felicity Randall waiting for him in his bedchamber the second night of his stay, leads Sin to believe that perhaps all is not lost after all, and he proceeds to make love to the delicate beauty. Until she informs him the only reason she came to his bedchamber, has attended this house party at all, is to warn him his life is in danger. That there is a plot afoot to murder him whilst he is there. 
     
    Sin has only been in England a matter of days, certainly not long enough to have antagonized anyone into wishing to murder him, and leading him to wonder if the poor woman can possibly be deranged.
