Talk about getting your signals crossed…

When her brother cancels their backcountry ski trip, Robyn Maxwell takes it in stride. The fact she’s deaf doesn’t make her survival skills any weaker, and she’s been craving the chance to escape into the Yukon wilderness. Only the sexy beast of a man she bumps into at the cabin starts cravings of another kind, setting her hormones raging as well as raising strange questions about wolves, and mates, and pack challenges.

All wilderness guide Keil Lynus wanted was a nice quiet retreat before challenging for the Alpha position of his Alaskan pack. He wasn’t planning on meeting his destined mate, or finding out she’s not aware she has the genes of a wolf. Between dealing with his accident-prone younger brother, a deaf mate with an attitude and an impending duel to the death, his week—and his bed—is suddenly full.

Far from the relaxing getaway any of them had in mind…

Helia dreams of restoring Earth so humans can once again flourish beyond the walls of Haven, the last remaining city on a planet decimated by centuries of pollution and abuse.

Helia’s world, where humans balance on the edge of extinction, is becoming even more perilous.

When the alien leader imprisons Helia’s mother on a false charge, Helia begins to uncover the conspiracy behind the aliens’ presence on Earth. Now, she must join forces with alien rebels and put into motion her own secret invention–and it’s humanity’s last hope. If she succeeds, humans have a chance at survival and she has a chance at love.

My life used to be so simple. Get in, outsex a pesky incubus and get out with the cash. The vampires changed that. I hate vampires.

Firstly, the Demon Child woke and went on a feeding spree. He’s strong, lightning fast and as cute as a button. I fight demons by using my sexual aura, which makes hunting a vamp who looks like a kid totally wrong.

Secondly, the new mayor wants the paranormal world exposed. Not only does that cut into my income, it will lead to open warfare.

Thirdly, the only ones paying me to hunt the Demon Child are a pair of screwed up vampires: Nic – the motivational speaker, I don’t know whether I want to kill him, screw him or cut off his perfect face and wear it as a mask – and Kisho, who would be the perfect man, if it wasn’t for his vampirism. Oh, and that he’s Nic’s bitch, when I want him to be mine.

The mayor wants me on his team, I’m under investigation by the Demon Fighter Council – working for the enemy is strictly forbidden and, for the first time ever, I doubt my ability to get the job done.

Could my life get any more complicated? Oh yeah, the Demon Child has a secret that makes him unkillable.

Young women across the city are dying, and he suspects their deaths are connected. After he voices his suspicions, he becomes a target. Bodhi needs Sasha and Connelly’s assistance to unearth the truth before it’s buried along with more victims — and him, if whoever’s trying to silence him succeeds.
