Chapter One

Sweat ran down Keagen’s muscular back as he pressed the female against the wall. His rock-hard body, with perfect proportions and stamina that would outlast a stable of thoroughbred racehorses, was nowhere near to flagging. He’d pounded the woman for the last hour, nonstop. The female on the receiving end of his attention cried herself hoarse more than twenty minutes earlier. She needed to rest, but large hands cupped her ass, supporting her weight, and only when he’d had enough would he let her down.

With the air-con turned up high the smell of fresh sweat and sex hung in the air. Keagen loved to fuck; he had some catching up to do after his sex-starved existence for the first part of his adult life. Puffing out a few quick breaths, he built up his pace. He was ready for a beer and wanted the woman out of his room.

Keagen was tall, muscular, and stronger than most men were, although he wasn’t exactly a man. His genes were human DNA with a hint of animal, courtesy of Solgen Laboratories… READ MORE of this urban fantasy

Excerpt From Captivated By The Winter King: Paranormal Romance

Mistral Dawn Captivated by the Winter King
Mistral Dawn – Captivated by the Winter King

Narrowing her eyes, she stalked towards him and poked him on his chest. “You did that on purpose, didn’t you? You’re trying to distract me. It won’t work.”

His smile sharpened and he leaned down to whisper in her ear, “I bet I could distract you if I really tried.”

Glaring at him, she backed up to the bench where she had left her supplies. She picked up a pair of elbow-length, leather gloves and slid them up her arms. After pulling the material tight over her fingers, she took the bottle of lube she had brought and walked back to Ankou. It was the fiery lubricant she had learned was his favorite, and the gloves allowed her to use it in ways she hadn’t been able to before.

Bound By The Summer Prince

Mistral Dawn - Bound by the Summer Prince
Bound by the Summer Prince

The Summer Court is in an uproar. The king has just been executed for unpardonable crimes, and the queen is prostrate with grief over his loss. This leaves the Summer kingdom bereft of true leadership; a problem which is compounded by the fact that the laws of Fairie require balance to be maintained by having a male and a female ruler for both Season Courts at all times. Uaine, the Summer prince, is the only one who can put things right, but he is without a mate. Knowing that he must take a bride quickly, for the sake of his people, even though he is struggling with his own feelings of pain and anger over his father’s treachery, he goes for a walk in a forest near the palace to try to clear his head and determine how best to choose a female to rule beside him.

While walking Uaine discovers a human female running loose in Fairie, which is against the most basic tenets of Fae law. Furious at one more problem he must deal with, he takes her prisoner and locks her in the dungeon; only to discover later that she is his soul-mate. The magical bond between them means they are meant to be together forever, but humans can’t feel the magic of Fairie. Will Uaine be able to win her heart and convince her that she can trust him to keep her safe from all the dangers of Fairie…including himself?

Roni is a human con woman and petty thief. Having run afoul of the local crime syndicate in the city where she is staying, she finds herself running for her life. Trouble is no stranger to her, but when she falls through a hole in a wall and finds herself in a world with carnivorous trees and rocks that eat people she realizes she may have found more of it than she can deal with. Rescued/arrested by the prince of the Summer Court, it doesn’t take long for her to formulate a plan to use him to get herself home. Unfortunately for her, she soon finds that her heart, which she had thought long ago turned to stone, has begun to feel the love she has been playing at. Will she be able to overcome a lifetime of caution and allow herself to follow her heart? Can a criminal love a cop?

Intrigue In The Summer Court

Mistral Dawn Intrigue in the Summer Court
Intrigue in the Summer Court

Jillian knows something bad is going to happen! She has been a loyal adviser to the throne and friend of the queen, Briallen, for thousands of years, and now Roni and Uaine’s wedding and coronation are to take place in just a couple days. The Summer Court will have a new king and queen, who, it is hoped, can repair the damage and heal the schism the late king created.
But Jillian can’t shake the feeling that trouble is brewing. Many of the Summer nobles aren’t happy about the changes that are taking place in the Summer Court, and many of the other Fae just aren’t too sure about having a human on the throne…even if she has been blessed by the goddess. When Angelica, the leader of the Pixies, comes to her with news of a plot to murder the prince and princess, Jillian’s suspicions are confirmed. Will the two of them be able to unravel this conspiracy in time to save the royal couple? Or will prejudice prevail, and the hope for peace in Fairie be lost forever?

*This is a novella and is number 2.5 in the series. Taken By The Huntsman is the first book in the series, and Bound By The Summer Prince Is the second book in the series

Captivated By The Winter King

Kate is a woman on the run. After years of being physically and emotionally abused by her fiance, she’s finally had enough. But leaving might be even more dangerous than staying, so she needs to get as far away as she can as fast as possible. A late night, desperate drive through the pouring rain ends suddenly when a cat appears in the middle of the road. While trying to avoid the half-drowned creature, Kate loses control of her car and crashes through a portal to Fairie.

Mistral Dawn Captivated by the Winter King
Mistral Dawn – Captivated by the Winter King

Ankou is a fallen God of Death and the king of the Winter Court of Fairie, and he’s facing pressure from every direction. The magic of the Court is out of balance due to the centuries-long lack of a queen. He is harried constantly by the Court nobles who want him to either step down or take a mate. All the duties of a ruling pair rest squarely on his shoulders. And added to all this is a soul-crushing loneliness. His existence stretches back hundreds of millennia, and in all that time he has never found the one person who could warm his lonely heart. He is exhausted and discouraged, and the last thing he needs is to go tearing off into the night on a fool’s errand. But one of his lingering god powers is the ability to sense the right course of action to follow, and his instincts are screaming at him to go to a particular place in the forest of the Winter kingdom and wait. Imagine his surprise when he finds the one he has been waiting for his whole life!
Using a careful blend of patience, seduction, and domination, the Winter king tries to win his soulmate’s love. Feeling safe and valued for the first time in her memory, Kate explores her new freedom by agreeing to try the BDSM games her lover suggests. As she experiments with both domination and submission, she learns just how liberating surrender can be. Will Ankou be able to convince Kate that she can trust him with her feelings as well as her body? Will Kate find a way to overcome the trauma of her past and open up her heart to accept the love that is offered to her? Can these two broken people find a way to fit all their disparate pieces together into a stronger, united whole? You’ll have to read to find out!

Here is a sneak peek from Angel Within, Paranormal Fantasy Romance.

This is the 2nd book in the Fallen Angels, Demon Within is the first and both these books are available in eBook, paperback and audio book and FREE on kindle unlimited


Angel Within paranormal fantasy romance
2nd book in the Fallen Angels paranormal fantasy romance series

This fantasy  romance series has a bit of everything. Fighting, magic, humor and hot sex. The stories for each book are individual, but it is advisable that you start with Demon Within, as important details/secrets come to light at the end of the novel.

Angel Within

Sabe frowned, and hoped to learn of the joke between Kai and Beros as Kai chuckled.

Kai stood up, and dusting off his pants, scanned the camp. “Where will I sleep?”

“With me.” Sabe grinned and left the warmth of his blanket, and Nissa’s body, to stand by his side. He slapped his shoulder, “But don’t worry, you’ll not be getting a goodnight kiss.”

Everyone laughed as Kai shoved at his friend. “I’m pleased to be respected among my friends.” Kai grinned wide. “You’ll do as your king commands; else I’ll have you flogged.”

Laughter rang around the fire once more, as the banter between Sabe and Kai continued, raising their spirits. The somber mood over the last few weeks had lingered for too long. Too many warriors fell to their death, and it was time to bring happier times forward.

“Until the morning then.” Kai pulled at Sabe’s arm as he attempted to say goodnight to Nissa, “Come on. I need my boots removing!” He chortled.

They’d brought only four tents. Nissa and Kiera occupied one, Sabe and Kai the other, while Jace, Nazar, Beros, and Maika used the others. The warriors often slept under the stars, and had makeshift shelters using canvas and the surrounding trees.

Kai removed his shirt, just as Sabe entered the dwelling.

Grinning at the claw marks on Kai’s back, Sabe couldn’t resist a tease, “I’m glad Nissa can’t see what her queen does in the bedroom. I’d be ripped to shreds!”

Kai grinned and turned to face his friend, showing the rest of his freshly scarred body.

Sabe grimaced with a hiss. “Is this a new game you’re engaging in?”

Frowning, Kai ran his fingertips over the wounds. The memories of his night with Eloise seemed distant. His recollection of the passionate manner in which his wife caused him harm faded quickly.

“This isn’t usual; I have no idea what made Eloise so…”


Sabe leaned in for a closer inspection and winced. “Imagine what damage she would have caused if you’d been gone for a week!”

They laughed and made ready for their beds. Kai was still tired, despite not rising until the afternoon.

Groaning as he lay back, he rested his arms behind his head. He turned to his friend with concerned thoughts. “Will you be alright tomorrow?”

“Of course, why wouldn’t I be?”

“It’s been a few years since… well, after what Tigan attempted. I’m just worried you might not be able to resist the temptation to kill him.”

The thought had crossed Sabe’s mind, and he knew Kiera would be equally satisfied if he did. “He deserves it, but you can count on me. I’ll do whatever you command.”

Lifting his head off the makeshift bed, Kai turned to his friend. “I’ll give no commands.” He scowled, “Nothing has altered between us, despite my title.”

He puffed out as he lay down. He never asked to be king, if he’d had his way, he and Eloise would have remained at Blackhill.

“I’ve always followed your lead, and I’ll continue. We’ll watch how it unfolds and you can decide the best course of action. Agreed?”

Kai sighed, “Agreed.”

“We’re settled then. Now unless you want me to tuck you in and kiss you goodnight, go to sleep.”

Sabe ducked as Kai’s boot flew through the air.

Kaegen is a genetically engineered superhuman. Gabriel is a werewolf. They both have been subjects in an illegal, undocumented laboratory and victims of the sadistic Dr. Keller. Gabriel escaped at the first opportunity, but Kaegen was turned into a weapon by the evil scientist, and he was sent to find Gabriel and bring him back to a cage. And that’s just where the action starts! 🙂
I read this book in one sitting! Once I got started, the fast-paced action sucked me in and kept me on the edge of my seat. The romance and sexual tension between the characters was great, and the sex scenes were super hot! This story is just getting started, and I can’t wait for the next book! 🙂

I’m offering a copy of Blood Ties, my latest release and the full box set of the Fallen Angels Series. Here’s a sneaky peek from Blood Ties.

Gabriel moved to sit by his side on the sofa and leaned over. He’d thought his sister dead for two years, and trusting Keagen’s expert knowledge of the workings at Solgen brought hope. kindle unlimited promoAlthough Keagen’s warning was still in his mind. If he couldn’t turn Lyra away from the company, he had no idea what he would do. He pushed the negative thoughts to the rear and concentrated on the present.

“So you think she might be a guest or a staff member?”

Keagen scrunched his shoulders. “Not sure. I’ll have to do a survey to confirm, but it’s a place to start.”

Gabriel nodded. “I’d like to go with you.”

Keagen blew out his cheeks. “We’ve already talked about this.” He stared at Gabriel with a look that a father would give to a child, but Gabriel wasn’t taking any notice.

“Look, if you let me tag along, I could prove useful,” he said hopefully.

“How, exactly?”

“I don’t know, maybe I can have the details of the layout or something written down to help you get around once you’re inside the facility.”

There was a pause and then Keagen rested his chin on his clenched fist as he gazed idly at Gabriel. “That would be awesome, and really useful if I didn’t have an eidetic memory.”

“A What?”

Keagen rolled his eyes. “A photographic memory.”

“No shit! Seriously?”

“I don’t need a side-kick; you’ll only get in the way.”

“Come on! You have to let me go with you!”

“I don’t. I have no use for you.”

Grunting as he slouched back against the sofa, Gabriel knew he wasn’t making any headway, but he wasn’t done yet.

“Okay, I admit; I have no skills that can help you, okay?”

Keagen grinned.

“But can’t you just let me tag along? Let me at least see my sister. You owe me that much.”

Frowning, Keagen thought for a moment. He preferred to work alone; however, Gabriel had skills that could prove useful if he was in a tight spot. The clawed hands were lethal, and when Keagen couldn’t use a gun, it would come in handy. Conceding to Gabriel’s insistence, and against his better judgment, Keagen nodded.

“Okay, but you have to do exactly as I say.” He gave Gabriel a hard stare.

“YES! I will!”

Gabriel’s elation was obvious, and Keagen shook his head in disbelief at his excitement. At least he wouldn’t slow him down. Closing the laptop, Keagen leaned back and sighed heavily. He was tired and needed to prepare. Turning to his new partner, he grinned.

“You’d better rest. I’ll be leaving at first light. So go and say goodnight to that puss of yours just in case it’s the last chance you get. Because if you meet your sister, you’re gonna get a shock. She won’t be the sweet, naive girl you once knew. As I see it, there are two possibilities. She’s either a basket case and chained to a wall in a cell, or a lethal weapon. If it’s the latter, the training and conditioning will have turned her into a fighting machine. If the company has given her the next assignment by the time we catch up with her, you and I are first on her hit list.”

He slapped Gabriel’s shoulder as he left. Rest wasn’t something he needed a lot of, but he still had to sleep occasionally. It was a case of quality rather than quantity, and he required a few hours to put right the sleep debt.

Watching Keagen leave, Gabriel thought then decided he was right, and headed to the bedroom, but hovered outside Lyssa’s room for a moment. He could hear her gently snoring and snickered, although he wished she were awake. A snuggle would be welcomed, but he didn’t want to disturb her after the ordeal of the last couple of days. Moving silently to his room and undressing, he lay in bed, staring up at the ceiling.

Memories of his sister plagued his mind from when they were younger. They always teased one another constantly, and when he’d made the decision to leave the pack, it broke her heart. She’d begged him to stay, but Gabriel knew if he remained, he and his father would end up fighting, and that wasn’t something he wanted. They kept in contact for a short time, but then Gabriel took up residence in his cell, and the last time he’d seen his sister was on a video, played to him while he was caged. Since Keagen debunked the video as a fake, his mind was now plagued with images of the same gruesome tests he’d endured; the bone and skin sampling, not to mention endless stamina tests. His stomach twisted. No one deserves to suffer under the hands of these bastards, especially his sister. He hoped Keagen’s second suggestion would apply to Lyra, and then at least he would attempt to bring her home, despite Keagen’s warnings. Gabriel needed to believe there was a chance he could save her; else, he may as well give up now.

He was unaware he’d drifted into sleep until he was woken slowly by the soft touch of Lyssa’s hands as she smoothed a warm palm across his chest. She’d snuck into his room, but he wasn’t about to complain. A strong arm reached around her and he kissed her head, letting her know he appreciated her presence.

It took only moments for Lyssa’s hand to wander lower to his cock and Gabriel moaned softly at her caressing. Palming him with precision, she stroked him to climax easily. He rested for a moment, before rolling her onto her back and pressed his mouth over hers. She received his tongue with enthusiasm. When his hand slipped between her thighs, she moaned into his mouth. The intrusion of long fingers inside brought her back into an arch. It was impossible to keep still or silent and Lyssa groaned loudly when Gabriel’s mouth moved down to a hard nipple and gave it a nip. Almost every time they’d played, she came. He was an expert at bringing her to climax, and she loved it. She felt the tingle and within moments, a rush of pleasure spilled through her body. It was impossible to remain quiet and she cried out her pleasure while Gabriel watched her face contort in ecstasy. Grinning after she’d climaxed, he kissed the tip of her nose and growled, causing her to giggle.

Without any words, Gabriel pulled her against him. Holding her tight, they drifted into sleep.

The hunter becomes the hunted…

Keagen was tall, muscular, and stronger than most men were, although he wasn’t exactly a man. His genes were human DNA with a hint of animal, courtesy of Solgen Laboratories. It wasn’t common knowledge what the company did, and their labs were all in secret locations. Only their financial backers knew where they were. Who supported them was unclear. Possibly the government, private military organizations, or even wealthy dictators; no one knew. You would not find any documentation about it. It wasn’t legal what they were doing, that’s for sure.
Keagen tracked and hunted escapees and always caught his prey, but just one eluded him. Gabriel, a lycan.

K 3 4 G E N is Solgen Laboratories number one hunter. He’s genetically enhanced and has a high IQ, heightened senses, and thanks to lycan DNA, he is stronger and faster than any man. It’s taken him a year to find Solgen Labs most wanted escapee; Gabriel, a lycan, and K 3 4 G E N is finally bringing him in, but despite his one hundred percent retrieval rate, his title and life are about to expire.
The labs have created a new hunter, a female. G H 0 5 C T – She’s faster, stronger, and has a new genetic enhancement that gives her the edge. She’s a trained killer, and is eager to replace K 3 4 G E N, robbing him of his title and crown.
Feeling betrayed, K 3 4 G E N turns to his enemy, Gabriel. He hands Gabriel a file containing details of his sister, who was executed at the hands of Dr. Keller, the founder of Solgen Labs. Seeking an alliance, he offers to help Gabriel find out what happened to his sister.
Gabriel must make a choice; trust the hunter, or run and hide as he had done previously.
