Bad Witch: The Chronicles of Emily
The Importance of Being Emily
Magic, matchmaking and murder…
Lord Willowbrook’s spring ball is supposed to be a magical celebration, but Miss Emily Wright is bored. The only outlet allowed for her magic is matchmaking—for others, not herself. Why bother? The only man she wants, Michael Black, is a man she can never have.
Suddenly the guests are abuzz with news of a young sorceress found drained of blood in the parlor. The mystery calls to her, and since she is the only available seer in all England, she jumps at the chance to prove herself.
Michael has spent his life preparing for his ritual death, when he will join the Order of St. Jerome as an immortal chronicler. Now that dream hangs in the balance, his mentor accused of the murder. Worse, gentle Emily, the woman he silently loves, is walking into a world of horrors beyond her imagination.
Torn between duty to the order and desire to keep her safe, Michael fights his growing need for a love that can never be his. All the while the real killer stalks the shadows of Willowbrook Hall, homing in on the next victim.
Poison in the Blood
She is honey to his throat…but one sweet taste could part them forever…
Banished from home while her husband adjusts to life as an immortal, blood drinking chronicler, Emily Black is homesick, heartsick and struggling under the constant sensory barrage of a city drenched in ancient magic. When an old friend asks for her aid in solving a string of murders, she welcomes the distraction, despite the danger.
Justine Dubois is grateful for a seer’s help, and more understanding than anyone of Emily’s plight. As a guardian, Justine commands respect; as a woman, her magic is considered inferior. Together, they are determined to prove their worth to London’s magicians, starting with solving these murders—with maybe a bit of matchmaking on the side.
Long before he met his soul mate, Michael Black made a commitment to join the Order of St. Jerome. He will live forever, forced to watch the woman he loves age and die. As Emily hunts the murderer, Michael struggles protect her. But if he loses control of his hunger, the greatest threat to her safety could be Michael himself.

Even a bad witch deserves a second chance.

Life as an outcast was nothing new, thanks to her father’s wicked reputation, but the injustice left her heart scarred. Especially since she’d been turned in by the man she loved.
Alexander Duquesne has never faltered in his duties as a guardian—until now. He still suffers lingering guilt over his role in Cat’s exile, and when the old Titania is murdered, Cat is in line to be the next victim. Lex will do anything to keep Cat alive, even if she hates him for it.
Hunted by a powerful stranger intent on drawing her into an evil web, Cat reluctantly accepts Lex’s protection and the resurrected desire that comes along with it. Lex faces the fight of his life to keep her safe…and win her back. If they both survive.
Bloodlines and Broomsticks
Liars and tigers and weres, oh my!
Riley O’Driscoll’s perfect life cracked thanks to her nasty divorce, and then her world shattered when her beloved grandmother’s murder left her with a surprise inheritance of magic and mayhem. Riley has less than a year to learn a lifetime’s worth of witchcraft, and after a lifetime of academic excellence Riley has only failed in two subjects: love and magic.
When witch hunters break down Riley’s door, a miscast spell sends her through the looking glass and into the path of sexy shapeshifter Jeremiah Galestrom. Jere was an agent of the Wild Hunt—an elite team of sorcerers sworn to protect magiciankind by hunting dangerous shapeshifters–who was infected and left for dead after his team was massacred. His faerie family saved his life, but his rescue left him trapped in Faerie with no hope of escape—until Riley arrives.
They strike a bargain that trades a year of Jeremiah’s protection for Riley’s help, and Riley finds herself with a new roommate who’s a real tiger. With the hunters closing in, can Riley trust her life—and her heart—with a man who is counting the days to his freedom? And while Jeremiah knows he can protect Riley from the hunters, can he protect her from himself, and the wild magic within him?

Bewitched, Blooded and Bewildered
It’s better to be a bad witch than a dead one.
One thing stands between Catherine Duquesne and happily-ever-after with her soul mate Lex—her unwanted bond with billionaire vampire Zachary Harrison. Married life is hard enough without adding an uninvited vampire to the mix, and being tied to Zach endangers more than just her relationship. If Zach dies, she dies, and with his new seat on the necromancer council being challenged by older, more powerful masters, his life expectancy is dwindling fast.
Vampire politics is only the beginning of Cat’s problems. Hunters are stalking magicians, abducting entire families and killing anyone who resists. As the current Titania and Oberon, Cat and Lex must protect their people, but Cat’s dark past keeps the victims from seeking their help. Worse, the former Titania’s granddaughter wants to oust Cat from the job, believing her vampire ties make her unfit.
To break the bond Cat must broker deals with devils on a journey that will take her to hell and back—literally. Freedom comes at a high price, but Cat will risk anything to save her people and her marriage.
Blood, Toil and Trouble
Why settle for bad, when you can be wicked?
Marie is the wild child of the venerable Duquesne family, born to break her mama’s heart. After failing at her guardian duties on two previous assignments, protecting Chicago’s magician community is Marie’s last chance at redemption. But with hunters preying on the people she’s supposed to protect, Marie must join forces with sexy, tempting Dr. Brian Dannaher to combat them—and nothing is more dangerous than falling for a vampire.
Brian lives in the shadow of the other area chroniclers, often overlooked but grudgingly content to live a quiet, unremarkable unlife—until bold, vivacious Marie stirs desires he has long ignored. Chroniclers are meant to investigate and record magician history, and never to interfere with it. They most certainly do not charge into the fray and battle the rising darkness, but Brian was a soldier in life and hates the idea of watching from the sidelines. Brian would do anything to fight at Marie’s side, even if that means violating the oaths of his order.
When the hunters strike too close to home, Marie has the chance to prove herself worthy of her family’s upstanding guardian reputation. But being a good guardian means ignoring the desire drawing her into Brian’s arms, and it’s so much more fun being bad…
