Unassuming law student Sadie Pratt leads a quiet life immersing herself in her books; outside of school, her only real form of excitement is researching the local flour mill and her link to its terrible history.

When his team is dispatched to rescue Strickland’s latest victim, the scene he discovers feels all too familiar and he vows he won’t play by the rules this time.

Desire, possession, and treachery lead Sadie down a crooked path to redemption. She must rely on her intellect and inner strength for her survival… and for that of the man she loves.

Forged from a childhood filled with bloodshed and death, Trent had been raised with a blade in his hands. He lives the life of a warrior and carves through his enemies as if seeking redemption for his mother’s ultimate sacrifice. As the acting Mikko of the Order of Rockys, Trent leads the most dominant Lycans in the world. For that reason alone, he has no use or understanding for those who wallow in their vulnerabilities, rather than exercise their power over their own destiny.

She is going to die, but with no clue as to when or why, Aryana is forced to do everything she can to negate the haunting words of fate,

“Weakness dies and you are weak.”

But the gods are merciless in their meddling in the lives of powerful mortals and the ones they love. How far will Trent have to fall for the weak female who steps in his life and claims his soul?

A passion that outlasts time itself…

Dawn and her lover Jake Maxwell share a sizzling bond even death can’t sever, reunited through his reincarnation and her awakening after three thousand years as a mummy. They’re on the run from Redeo Biotech, the company that resurrected her — and Redeo’s founder, Anton Vahl, is hell-bent on reclaiming her to mine the secrets of her rebirth. When he offers to let Jake go free if Dawn surrenders to him, she must sacrifice her freedom to save the man she’s loved for eternity.

The power of vengeance is undying too…

With Dawn in his clutches, Vahl sets out to help her regain her lost memories, of the life she lived in ancient Egypt. She may be forced to submit to his tests, but she will never give in to his will. Underneath the scientific curiosity, she senses a darkness more disturbing than his claims of legal ownership over her body. As Jake embarks on a desperate quest to uncover Vahl’s true motives and free Dawn, she is shocked by what her newfound memories expose about her past and her future. Now she’s in a battle for her life and her soul, determined to vanquish an evil that knows no bounds.

The weirdest part of all? She remembers his name.

Jake burns to tell her everything, but he’s keeping more secrets than she realizes. He sat vigil beside her glass coffin for months, watching as scientists regenerated her body — and fantasizing about the woman she might once have been, never dreaming she’d wake up, because no one believed she could. Now, confronted with the reality of her, he discovers this bold and suspicious woman captivates him even more intensely than his fantasy.

But as the rogue scientists responsible for her new life close in on them, the shocking truth about her origins, her past life, and her awakening threatens to destroy their burgeoning passion. Can the starcrossed lovers defeat their enemies before time runs out?
