Exciting news! My Claimed series is getting new covers and the stories refreshed. I’ve also got Narrators lined up to turn these novels into audiobooks!
The pleasure Renee got whenever she sank her trowel into a new patch of ground was almost better than a free ice cream sundae with extra chocolate fudge and rainbow sprinkles on top. Only thing that would’ve topped that was if her new boss, Damon Cubin, had taken her somewhere private and kissed her until she forgot all her inhibitions.
But that was a far-fetched fantasy. Why would handsome, intelligent Damon want her in any capacity other than professional? He’d shown how much he was into her by ignoring her half the night after she thought they’d had a connection, then picked up a random woman he met at the bar and bringing her here with everyone.
Now Renee was faced with reality and if she didn’t get her shit together, her dream job was on the line. The only drawback to this perfect job was Damon’s female proclivity, which didn’t involve Renee and his autocratic rules.
Renee scooped out another bucket load from the archeological site and wiped her brow. Damon’s extensive knowledge of ancient Phrygian culture, almost as if he’d experienced it firsthand, drew her to him. Didn’t hurt that he was gorgeous as sin. Not to mention, he was the first archeologist to give her a chance as an assistant; for every other excavation, she amounted to nothing more than a volunteer. This was her chance to work with someone who valued her skills. Further her career and she could go full-time instead of cramming her passion into three short summer months when she wasn’t teaching.
She exhaled, air trickling through her parted lips until her lungs screamed. The breathing exercise did little to take her mind off Damon. Let it go, Renee, he’s not interested.
Sifting through dust and rock was what she craved—the careful, almost artful search to discover a piece of lost history. The tan-colored tent several yards away mocked her, and she gritted her teeth. For God’s sake, she was in Turkey, her dream spot to excavate religious artifacts, not get upset that Damon had brought his girlfriend with him. What did Renee think? That he was going to be some celibate hunk who would see her and fall instantly in love? She snorted. Dream on, princess.
Days earlier, when he met her and the rest of the team at the airport, he offered them a meal and drinks. His easy-going nature and archeological knowledge enamored her. Not only was he living her dream, but the few pictures she’d scoured online didn’t do him justice. She had to admit, she’d fallen for him, giving into mild fantasies about him.
Intelligence radiated in his blue eyes, and Renee swore they peered into her soul. That was until the blond bombshell in a size two dress flounced over to him. Then he showed his true colors by sleeping with the woman. Never mind that Renee would’ve jumped his bones if he’d asked.
That was until she realized what a hard to please boss he was.
Did he hire Renee for the summer because few could tolerate his arrogance and demands? Demands such as he must be the one to strike ground first and they had to provide daily reports rather than the standard semi-weekly. She kept reminding herself: this was for her own future. Didn’t matter Damon’s morals or that he was now doing god knew what in his tent with a woman he just met.
Renee swallowed down the lump of emotions in her throat. And up until that moment at the bar, she’d thought she and Damon had a chemistry between them. Concentrate on the dig, not on a guy. She didn’t need a man.
Succubus Adeline has lost her powers. The crystal that all her kind crave has attached itself to her and rendered her powerless. Unless she finds a way to remove it, she’ll transform into a human–a fate worse than death.
Jack is running from vamps and weres. They want his hidden doppelgänger talents to locate a stone that enables weres to transform at will, but he just wants to be left alone. Now he has a bounty hunter after him.
Adeline is determined to get the bounty on Jack so she can pay for the answer to remove the bracelet. She soon discovers his secret. The tables are turned on the succubus, and she finds herself the one who is at the mercy of desire.
In a race against time, vampires, and weres, Adeline and Jack travel from Boston to Greece to New Orleans to stay ahead of the hunters.
When Jack confronts a dangerous voodoo queen alone, Adeline learns that love is sacrifice. But will they both survive the lesson?
