Vampire (book 1)
Everyone believed vampires were extinct.
Everyone was wrong.
When Ariel Swanson wrote a novel about vampires, she hoped it would exorcise her fear of the creatures that had, not so long ago, terrorized the human population.
Instead, it brought her to their attention.
And to the attention of Jachin Black-a man banished from the Sanguinas, a vampire clan, and forced to hunt among the despised humans. For he clung to the prophecy given years ago, of a better way for his kind to live. a prophecy Ariel unknowingly used as the basis of her novel.
Ariel hates and fears vampires. Jachin despises humanity. But the prophesy-and passion-bind them in ways they could never have imagined. Ways that may heal the past, and change the future.
Werewolf (book 2)
Humanity had reason to fear vampires.
But they didn’t know about werewolves. Yet.
When Detective Kaitlyn McKinney responded to a call about a strange, burned body, she discovers something far more complicated – and
Landon Rourke is a werewolf, exiled from his pack and dedicated to keeping a protective watch over Kaitlyn. A prophecy has said that his kind and vampires would one day come to a truce. But that day has yet to come.
Landon has his own past to deal with, too, involving Kaitie herself. A dark truth that has kept them apart for years. When Kaitlyn gets caught up in the battle between vampires and werewolves, their long-simmering attraction ignites. And in that attraction, they find the secret that will bring them together…
Were/Shapeshifter (book 3)
They thought they understood the prophecy.
They were wrong.
Caine Grennard was a werewolf, living among humans and lacking purpose–until the night he met a woman with an exotic, irresistible scent. A woman who might be his deadliest enemy.
When her aunt is kidnapped, Emma Gray swears to do anything to get the older woman back. Even if it means trusting the mysterious–and sexy–stranger named Caine.
But more is at stake than one woman’s life: Emma’s past holds the last key to unlocking a prophecy Caine’s clan is depending on. The fate of both their clans rests on them trusting the impossible, electric connection between them, even in the heart of betrayal…
Abby had barely survived the treacherous drive to Kaitlyn’s house through an ice storm. Then, forced to break in when she couldn’t find the key, she was immediately grabbed by someone in the dark. She gave her assailant the fight of his life…until his accusation that she was a burglar told her a mistake had been made. Now, facing her opponent, she was overwhelmed by an electric attraction more intense than any she’d ever felt.
Gabriel was impressed by this fascinating spitfire. He also felt the most intense desire of his life–a relentless need so powerful it tore him apart. He understood immediately that Abby was the one–the female destined as his mate for life. But Abby wasn’t like the other females he’d been with. For one thing, she was human. Gabriel didn’t trust humans one bit. But the realization hit him–if he was to win Abby, he would have to win her trust…and Abby wasn’t going to make it easy.
Note: This eBook exclusive novella can be read as a stand alone and doesn’t affect the outcome of the prophecy story arc in the full length novels, but if you’d like to read the books in order as to when the characters “fell in love” then this novella takes place between books 2 and 3.
Q: I love your Scions books. Please write more. Can you please tell me if there will be a Scions story for any of the following characters: Mira, Hawkeye, Roman or Laird?
A: I’d love to write more stories set in the Scions world in the future. We’ll see what the future holds.
Q: I understand there are four stories in the Scions series so far. What order should I read your Scions books in?
Note: With the exception of Scions: Perception, all the other books are in print. Scions: Perception is an eBook novella written as a stand alone story set in the Scions world. You don’t have to read Scions: Perception to enjoy the overarcing prophecy storyline in the trilogy, but I put it in the list in the time line that the characters meet each other. I hope you’ll check it out so you can meet Gabriel.
Q: I’ve read all three Scions books I could find in print (Scions: Resurrection, Scions: Insurrection and Scions: Revelation), but I can’t find Scions: Perception in print anywhere. Where can I get it?
A: Right now Scions: Perception is only available as an eBook Nocturne Bite (novella length) through eHarlequin.com, Amazon Kindle and other on-line sites. If you’d like to have a copy in print, let Harlequin know your wishes and hopefully you’ll see Scions: Perception in a future Nocturne print anthology collection of Nocturne Bites.
Q: I noticed a romance about Gabriel and Abby (a Lupreda and a human) mentioned in the 3rd Scions book, Scions:Revelation. I don’t remember seeing their romance in the first two Scions books. How did I miss their story?
A: Gabriel and Abby’s story is a Nocturne Bite (an eBook novella available in Kindle format on Amazon and as an eBook on Harlequin). Scions:Perception was written as a stand alone story, and you won’t have missed anything pertaining to the prophecy if you haven’t read it, but I hope you’ll check out Gabriel and Abby’s story nonetheless.
Q: I’d like to read your Scions series. Where can I find them?
A: You should be able to order used print copies of Scions:Resurrection, Scions:Insurrection on Amazon.com. Harlequin also released my Scions books under the Intrigue line in the UK HERE. Of course, you can also order the eBook version via various online sights like Amazon and Harlequin.
Q: I live outside the US and I have to wait forever to get your books from the US. Will the Scions books be released in other countries?
A: The Scions series has been released in the UK, Australia and in French. Harlequin controls where my books get released in foreign editions and when. Contact them to ask for a translation in your language.
Q: How do you pronounce your hero’s name in Scions: Resurrection?
A: Jachin is a biblical name that means “he who establishes”. It can be pronounced a couple of ways: Jay cin or Yah kin. I personally prefer the old-time pronunciation, Yah kin because it really seemed to fit my hero’s character.
