An immortal born from an unlikely alliance... 
Beautiful mythic Greek heiress Adrasteia 'Adri' Dionysios has roamed the world for millennia, taking her pleasure where she wanted. Until one night, when Fate drops a baby wrapped in fire into her arms. Motherhood is a formidable challenge, but so is figuring out the identity of a mystery man who makes her pulse race.

A vampyre’s obsession… Seraphine 'Sera' Dionysios' origins are shrouded in mystery. Torn between a mother whose blood saved her life, and a man who now possesses her soul, the only thing Sera can still cling to is her heart.

One rule matters above all others: Always protect the portal… When Evil comes to Adri and Sera’s hometown of Shadow Bridge, a place where the mortal human world ends and the supernatural realm starts, it’s up to them to stop a prophecy as old as time itself...or die trying. 

She stared at him, steeling herself against his intense gaze. He was looking at her in that way. The one that told her she was his, that he wanted her, and that what he wanted, he took. She swallowed again, this time to calm her racing pulse.
Oh no, don’t do this to me.
“You will cooperate. Mia cara, you have no choice in this. I’ll make sure you come to no harm,” he said, as if that would reassure her.
What his words did, though, in particular the unwanted endearment, was send her temper flying to the tropics. That was good, because with anger came courage. Something that was second nature to her mother, but not so much to her.
And the man needed someone to put him in his place—fast.
“Is that so?” she said, lifting an eyebrow and enjoying the jolt of energy her whirling emotions gave her. “I think you need to learn how to speak to a woman if you want to charm her into obeying you. When did you go to school, the Middle Ages?”
Come to think of it, he might be that old.
His lips curved on one side in a shadow of a smile. “If I touched you right now, you’d melt in my arms and beg me to take you.”
Her face burned with embarrassment. She chanced a surreptitious glance at the others in the room. They stared at her, but didn’t seem concerned with this conversation.
“That’s not true.” Her voice trembled a little.
“You know it is.”
She took refuge in her resentment. Conceited prick. “I know nothing of the sort. In fact, I hardly know much about you, except that you take pleasure in ruining people’s lives.” And that you make my blood boil, not just with rage, but in other ways....
Second in line...

AN ETERNITY OF ROSES (Book 1 of The Valthreans)
This is a standalone book with an HEA, but there's a major story arc that will progress throughout the series. For lovers of paranormal romance, adventure and suspense.

Two lovers separated by an evil curse. 
A desperate quest through time. 
A love that wants to beat all odds.
And all the while, deadly danger brews around a two-thousand-year-old secret society and the enemy that lives to decimate it.

"...‘Til the end of my life, I shall belong to you as your husband.”

That was the promise Adrian made to Emmaline. And then, he was gone forever...

It is 1807. Adrian Segrave, Viscount Bournemouthe, and Lady Emmaline Deramore are about to wed and British Society teems with excitement at this imminent love match. But Madeleine de Brandeville, a mysterious Frenchwoman, has her lustful and ambitious sights on the groom. When she sets her cruel plan in motion, she leaves devastation in her path.

Heartbroken, Emmaline embarks on an adventure she'd never imagined having. As the world changes and chaos brews, her fate becomes linked with the Valthreans, a group of immortals who must learn to face a deadly enemy that threatens their place in the human world. But all the while, there is one thing she wants more than any other—to get back her man.

When she finally finds her prize and the intense blue flame of desire burns once more, her worst nightmares are far from over and the toughest battle is yet to begin. Will love win the war in the end?

Meanwhile, a little gift for all our amazing readers. Get the short prequels to the Eternelles series for FREE...

Adrasteia 'Adri' Dionysios, daughter of a Greek god, has lived for twenty-eight centuries and her existence as a flighty, conniving, and wicked creature is starting to get tedious. Can a heathen like her ask for something more, and deserve it? When her prayers are answered, all plans for any future change. For the best? Time will tell.

ADRASTEIA is the first short prequel to INESCAPABLE (Eternelles: The Beginning, Book 1).

Séraphine “Sera” Dionysios has everything she could ever wish for—a nurturing mother, a privileged life, a man who loves her. But, who is the mysterious stranger who keeps staring at her during dinner on the eve of her departure toward a new life? As she prepares to embark on an equally exciting and frightening journey with her husband-to-be, her world comes crashing down and leaves her reeling.

SÉRAPHINE is the second short prequel to INESCAPABLE (Eternelles: The Beginning, Book 1).

That's all for now :). Time to head on over to the GREAT INDIE AUTHOR BOOKS site and check out all the other fantastic offerings. Or for easy access, check out the linky list below. Have fun reading!
