The second book in the best-selling Big Bad Bite Series!
Does he have his claws in her for good? Or is she just yanking his tail?
Elena Demos’s life has been turned upside down. Her mother has passed away, leaving Elena and her two half-sisters to deal with their mother’s will and the crazy stipulations it contains. For the three sisters to inherit the substantial amount of money left behind, they have to go to work with two aunts they’ve never met in a family business—Amazons Inc.—they know nothing about. If that isn’t bad enough, Elena runs into the man who once broke her heart, and it’s only their first day on the job.
Gage Ivanov is a stupid beast. He let the woman who should be his mate go because she couldn’t be told of his Other identity. Now Elena’s back, but she refuses to give in to his demands for her to be his mate. The timing for all of this couldn’t be worse, either, because Gage and his circle of friends are trying to subdue a rogue pack of wolf shifters in Germany who threaten to out the Others to the world of humans. Will he be able to juggle the oncoming conflict and win back his mate?

Every demon want’s you when you’re the devil’s daughter.
When Sere Mal-Laurette escaped hell, she thought she’d left her demons behind her. But now that one has found his way through hell’s gate, others are sure to follow. Then all hell will break loose.
If Sere fails to contain the little soulless bastards, the loas of the dead will likely figure out her true identity. Then they’ll be all over her soul, and she can kiss immortality goodbye. Moreover, someone needs to send the demons back to where they came from before they wreak havoc on the citizens of New Orleans.
To prevent the demon doppelgängers from killing their human equivalents and taking over their lives, Sere will need the help of people she trusts—and some she doesn’t. It’s time for her to embrace the badass demon hunter she was always meant to be. To do so, however, she’ll have to quickly figure out the line between protector of humanity and murdering psychopath.
It doesn't matter what crime syndicate you belong to, that just doesn't sit well with him.

What if the most important part of you was locked away, encased in stone, and only you could set it free?
After a lacklustre birthday party, Phoenix finds a strange creature hiding under her sink. Doing what any sensible person would do, she pokes it. And when that little guy wakes up, he rocks her world.
You see, Phoenix isn’t human, the little guy under her sink just told her so. She is actually a Traveller, once a beautiful humanoid who moved through time on multi-coloured wings that filled the sky. So why is she here, sitting on the floor of her tiny apartment with a strange creature named Sid? Where are her wings? And why doesn’t she remember any of this?
Following Sid into time itself, Phoenix embarks on a wild adventure. If the Sirens don’t kill her, meeting a talking Yeti might. And ancient Egypt is amazing when it isn’t so ancient, although she could do without all the snake-men chasing her. But don’t worry, when the stuff really hits the fan, Phoenix isn’t afraid to swing her baseball bat at whatever is in her way. And through all this, the most terrifying man in her home world, a silver-skinned warrior named the Archer, is hunting her down.
They say you can’t get blood from a stone, but maybe you can get wings? Either way, Phoenix sure as hell is going to try.

Bone-chilling fiction inspired by scripture and the private revelations of the saints. Guaranteed to make you rethink the apocalypse.
Eighteen months ago, the Earth survived a comet strike. Famine, economic depression, and soaring crime rates rode in on its tail. While the government scrambles for solutions, Gina Applegate vlogs about college life and current events. God doesn't figure large in her life. Nonetheless, Gina thinks she's a pretty good person until a mystical event called The Warning gives her a glimpse of hell, shaking her fragile faith. As the world slips deeper into darkness, the gulf between the godly and the godless widens, leaving no middle ground. Everyone must choose a side.
Before the comet comes, many nations, the good excepted, will be scourged by want and famine. The great nation in the ocean that is inhabited by people of different tribes and descent will be devastated by earthquake, storm, and tidal wave. It will be divided and, in great part, submerged . . . For in none of those cities does a person live according to the Laws of God. A powerful wind will rise in the North, carrying heavy fog and the densest dust, and it will fill their throats and eyes so that they will cease their butchery and be stricken with a great fear. ~Saint Hildegard (12th Century)
The story is set in a secular world in a rapid decline. Expect some strong language, sexual situations, and violence.
Comet Dust springs from a Catholic worldview. If Catholic beliefs upset you, this probably isn't a story you would enjoy.
"Rings true because it's backed by so many real prophecies. Scary stuff." --J.Keating
"The arrival of the three days of darkness literally sent chills through me. The demon filled fog was the most terrifying thing I've ever read. Since different saints have warned us this will happen in real life it doubles the scariness. I'm going to get me some holy water." --Elaine Pratt, Random Reader
" . . . well imagined and crafted with compelling characters that readers will easily relate to, characters who will remind readers of their deep and silent yearnings and the questions they ask in the dead of night. There is enough action to keep the reader turning the pages and there are surprising twists in the already engaging plot." --Christian Sia, Readers' Favorite®
"Despite the religious subject matter, it never felt like a sermon. The plot moved quickly. I never got bored." --Traci, Early Reviewer

And in a blinding instant, that life was stolen from me.
The rage of a grieving mother is an ugly beast. More so when she has the skills and killer instinct to back up the wrath and the knowledge that an accident was anything but.
Once more, I will pick up my guns. This time to hunt those who took my husband’s and son’s lives.
Let them see the assassin, trained to kill abnormals, stalk the shadows again.
Let them see the Phoenix rise from the fragments of a broken life as she burns with a fury that cannot be contained.

J.D. and George: thick as thieves since the fourth grade. J.D., the troublemaker, the stud: the alpha. George, the sidekick, the misfit: the loser.

NOTE: THIS BOOK IS NOT A SHIFTER/WEREWOLF ROMANCE/EROTIC STORY. IT IS AN URBAN FANTASY MYSTERY THRILLER!

Fenris stands head and shoulders above any werewolf who has ever lived. He has wandered the earth for centuries ensuring that anyone who discovered his existence, or his true ancestry was never left alive to tell the tale. However, things are about to change.
Even readers who do not normally read Werewolf books or shifter suspense stories have commented on how much they have enjoyed reading about the complex character which Fenris is. Read the reviews and see why readers find it hard to put this werewolves and shapeshifters book down once they have started it.

Fenris had been on the verge of leaving Columbus, until by chance he had caught the scent of the shifters. Undecided as to whether he should kill them or ignore them, he settled on the idea that he would wait to see what they were doing there before making his decision.
On finding out that the shapeshifters were there for the girl, left Fenris with a problem. He knew that the Faction had sent the shape-shifters to abduct the girl. It wasn't his business but his curiosity had been aroused, why did they want her? Who or what was she? She certainly wasn't a shifter.
The Faction had been hunting, recruiting and killing people with special abilities for centuries. Fenris had been cautious and ruthless in his attempts to prevent the Faction from discovering his existence. He was no ordinary Lycan, and if they were to discover that there was a werewolf such as Fenris walking the earth, all their attention would turn to him. He discovers that the girl who had got the Faction’s attention was a Psychic, or to be more precise, an Empath. Would he put himself at risk or walk away?

“Remarkable.… Gaiman has provided an enchanting contemporary interpretation of the Viking ethos.”—Lisa L. Hannett, Atlantic
Neil Gaiman, long inspired by ancient mythology in creating the fantastical realms of his fiction, presents a bravura rendition of the Norse gods and their world from their origin though their upheaval in Ragnarok.
In Norse Mythology, Gaiman stays true to the myths in envisioning the major Norse pantheon: Odin, the highest of the high, wise, daring, and cunning; Thor, Odin’s son, incredibly strong yet not the wisest of gods; and Loki—son of a giant—blood brother to Odin and a trickster and unsurpassable manipulator.
Gaiman fashions these primeval stories into a novelistic arc that begins with the genesis of the legendary nine worlds and delves into the exploits of deities, dwarfs, and giants. Through Gaiman’s deft and witty prose, these gods emerge with their fiercely competitive natures, their susceptibility to being duped and to duping others, and their tendency to let passion ignite their actions, making these long-ago myths breathe pungent life again.

But it's not easy to keep the truth, especially one you feel is owed, from a person you care deeply about.
