Either I defeat the monster, or I become the monster.
As if being locked up in the crazy house wasn't bad enough, I wake up to discover that my nightmares are coming true. As in, the person I trust most in the world just morphed into a bloodthirsty monster. My only chance for escape comes in the form of two women who start calling out from within a shimmering tunnel. So, it's either stick around and get murdered or jump through some kind of portal. And there I was thinking my new meds were working.
I take Door Number Two and find myself ushered into the world of the Shadow Order, an ancient society of witches dedicated to protecting the covens. (Who me, a witch? Well, that sure explains a few things.) I'm given a choice: I can either go it alone and take my chances, or join their magical training program. Seeing as one option involves dying, I soon find myself alongside other young witches learning how to hone their magic. The problem being I didn't even know I had magic, never mind how to use it. There's also the small issue of it being unique enough to act as some sort of monster-luring beacon. While we know next to nothing about the supernatural psycho on the loose, we do know it changes form by hopping in and out of other peoples' bodies. And, right now, the body it wants most is mine. Why don't I find that flattering?
The Shadow Order (Crossroads Witch Book 1) is a fast-paced, unpredictable new urban fantasy that readers are calling "amazing," "with strong female leads," and "full of excitement!" If you like snarky kickass heroines, fast-paced action, magic, witchcraft and romance, then grab it today!
Six years ago, Kiera Anders resolved to put her painful past behind her, seeking a fresh start in New York. She didn’t count on her past finding her again in the form of Caleb Martin - her brother's former best friend and her first love. Now with millions to his name, a playboy reputation, and a closet full of skeletons, the cold and distant "Mr. Martin" is so different from the sweet Caleb she once knew.
But some things are hard to forget, and the passion that still sizzles between them can’t be denied. No other man could give Kiera that sweet taste of dominance and submission… and now that Caleb’s offering it to her again, how can she refuse? But things aren’t as simple as they used to be, with Kiera’s career on the line, a mountain of secrets between them, and Caleb’s sordid past threatening to catch up to him. It’s dangerous to mix business with pleasure… but it is worth the risk?
**This is the first book of the Risky Business Trilogy and ends on a cliffhanger to be resolved in book two**

If the Valkyrie can’t reach the safety of her ship by dusk, she’ll have to face them all.
