    Three stories of erotic paranormal romance: Included are the tales...

    Aquatic Ardor
    To save her lake from being sold to a developer, the undine Melia seduces the owner of the land. An undine who falls in love with a mortal, however, gains a human soul. Melia never expected to fall in love, and becoming human is the last thing she wants.

    Allure Of The Beast
    Half werewolf and half human, Erin tries to live as much like a normal woman as possible. Then her estranged father's foster brother, Raoul, invades her life with the news that a usurper has murdered her father and taken over the pack. Although she wants nothing to do with werewolf society, Raoul's offer of a potion to control the transformation convinces her to help him liberate the pack from the new alpha. When Erin and Raoul start to fall in love, she faces the risk of having to join the pack and embrace the beast side of her nature.

    Blood Hostage
    Descended from a long line of vampire hunters, Hal knows not all of the night creatures are merciless killers, but he also knows better than to trust one. When his young cousin and the boy's girlfriend are kidnapped by a homicidal rogue vampire, though, Hal imprisons Monique, a vampire with reason to detest the rogue, hoping she will help him rescue the captives. One problem—at the peak of her infrequent heat cycle, Monique must mate tonight. Can a mere mortal satisfy her, and will their mutual attraction overcome their differences?
  • Wild Sorceress Co-authored with Leslie Roy Carter Years ago, sorceress Aetria's untamed power caused a disaster on the battlefield. Temporarily banished for retraining, she has returned to the army to redeem herself as head of a company of novice mages. Under the command of her old nemesis, Adept Pleates, she struggles with her past disgrace and her still-uncertain control of her magical energy. When Pleates assigns her to escort the army's commanding general and his aide on a covert mission, Aetria sees a chance to prove her worth. To her surprise, she unearths a traitor's plot and previously unknown secrets of the source of magic. At the same time, she discovers long-lost kin and encounters an unsuspected ally in the depths of her own mind. Marge Robbins reviewing for Sime~Gen calls WILD SORCERESS "A tale of magic, intrigue, and enough plot twists and turns to keep even the most jaded reader of this genre spellbound and unable to put the book down until the very end."
