Dragon’s Claim Blurb:
Book three in the Unveiled Seductions series.
Talathion Frostbane was tasked with saving his people and took on the responsibility unflinchingly. Yet all it takes to throw his entire existence into chaos is one encounter with the wyvern-shifter he spurned two hundred years before. The passion between them is as strong as ever, but there’s no escaping the expectations of the clan. And giving in to the all-consuming desire for the dragonkin would have devastating consequences.
When Hervé Cinq à Sept travels to the Fey city of Leaich, searching for answers after someone tries to kill him, what he finds rocks his world in a variety of ways and leads him down a path of inescapable hunger. As he finds himself on his knees, lost in desperate need and heading for heartbreak, he realizes why, as a species, the dragonkin no longer believe in love. It’s so easy to lose everything—pride, independence, control—when the one you want to claim can never be yours.

Dragon’s Claim Excerpt:
They had to get out of the club. Even through the fog of his need Hervé knew he didn’t want their first time together to be like this—a fumbling encounter on his desk or tattoo table. He wanted to be able to look at Tala as he touched him, branded him with his attention, possessed him completely, utterly, as he’d dreamed.
Reluctantly he let go of Tala’s ass long enough to reach for his amulet, intending to open a portal, but clearly the elf had the same thought and beat him to it. There was a rush of magic, so strong as to be shocking, and in a blink they were in the master bedroom at the beach house.
There was no time to even consider the extent of Tala’s power because Hervé realized not only had the elf translocated them but he’d removed all their clothes too. They were skin-to-skin and the primal rush of arousal firing through his system was almost more than Hervé could bear. The sound that broke from his throat was agonized, feral, giving aural evidence of the yearning overwhelming his soul. Ravenous, he threaded the fingers of one hand through Tala’s hair and broke the kiss. Tugging on the toffee-brown curls, Hervé gave in to the need to taste him more fully and set mouth and teeth to the other man’s neck. Elation shook him when a low moan of assent vibrated from the straining throat into his lips.
Wedging a thigh between the other man’s, Hervé shuddered at the press of the hard cock against his hip, the slick dampness illustrating the extent of Tala’s arousal. Or was it his own cock causing the trails of wetness over their stomachs? Step by step he pressed the elf backward toward the bed, aware of the rocking of their groins, the hard grasp of Tala’s hands—one on his ass, the other on the back of his head. He’d never felt weak with need before, excited beyond bearing by the knowledge he was about to make love with—no, lay claim to—another being. Within raged the urge to brand Tala with his fire, take him, take from him something elemental and necessary, as the elf had so long ago stolen a piece of his heart.
Fleeing Fate – Book One in the Unveiled Seduction series.
Jakuta Dagbo knows bad weather’s approaching, even though the sky above the faie world is clear. And when Gràinne Bairdie walks into The Midnight Café wanting an arcane tattoo, he realizes the tempest raging into his life has nothing to do with wind and rain. Just one look at her brings his storm god libido, and the protective instincts he no longer trusts, to thundering life.
Gràinne’s a banshee on the run, desperate to claim the emotions she’s sure are rightfully hers and has no time to explore the sparks of need flying between herself and Jakuta. What she’s trying to do will bring the wrath of the Banshee Council down on her head, and she knows they’ll do anything to stop her.
Yet, as Gràinne and Jakuta peel back the layers of their lives, searching for the answers she needs, they can’t ignore the lightning-hot passion searing their blood. And when emotion reaches its apex, demanding complete surrender to the cyclone of desire, neither can resist. Even if it means Gràinne’s banshee wail of release will be her last.
Stone-Hard Passion – Book two in the Unveiled Seductions series.
Tattoo artist Jasmina is on a mission to entice her client Vidar into bed, but getting the shy, obscenely ripped troll to agree is going to take some work. Even telling him straight up she wants him doesn’t break through his reserved, polite demeanor. Just what does a jinn have to do? Maybe showing him the pleasures they can enjoy without jeopardizing their friendship will do the trick.
Beneath Vidar’s staid exterior his blood burns with the thought of having Jasmina for his own. He’s been carrying a torch for years, never thinking she’d be interested in a troll. Although he desperately wants to take Jasmina up on her offer, there’s something about him she doesn’t know, and he doubts she’ll still be interested if she finds out.
When Jasmina’s past threatens and Vidar offers her sanctuary, there’s no way to stop their passion from boiling to the surface. But despite their new closeness, secrets and dangerous enemies can destroy what they’ve built, forcing them to sacrifice everything to prove their love.
