She couldn't resist his animal magnetism....
Luc Lazare doesn’t need more complications in his life. And Skye Cross, the intriguing woman able to communicate with animals, is the last thing he wants. Too bad his body disagrees. But he’s trying to save his shapeshifting family from being forced into the battle arena, and that means protecting the shifters responsible for stealing Skye's brother’s soul. Even as she demands his help, he’ll have to resist the pull of temptation.
Skye’s most recent animal rescue assignment involves saving canines involved in primal battles. Her investigation leads her to Luc, a man whose powers unsettle but intrigue her. Luc lures her into a dark encounter, and realizes that the animals engaging in these battles aren’t dogs at all, they’re wild predators. Skye finds herself caught in a dangerous world she never knew existed while relying on a man she couldn’t possibly trust.

Can a journal that belonged to her ancestress, Lady Elizabeth York show her the answers...in time to save her true love?
Chased by evil, two women discover their own magic to fighta villain's curse on the Posey rings that draw them to the men they are destined to love.
"A passionate tale of destiny, danger and dark magic---and a love so powerful that it conquers time." Mary Jo Putney, New York Times Bestselling Author
A mother’s nightmare…
Isabel Falcon’s eleven-year-old daughter has disappeared. There’s no motive. No trace. All that remains is emptiness, and a cold fear that grows with every minute. Filled with terror and panic, Isabel must now rely on the one man she wanted to avoid: Lucy’s father…
Twelve years ago, Micah Wild fell in love with Isabel Falcon – an intense, all-consuming love that was forbidden by both their families. But the generations-old feud between the Falcons and the Wilds would never allow such a marriage, and Micah and Isabel were pulled apart before their daughter was born. Now they are reunited for a single purpose: to find their daughter before the unthinkable happens.
Torn between hurt and betrayal, and the slumbering desire that once burned hot in their blood, Isabel and Micah must find the one thing that could bring their family together… or be lost to each other forever.
