Never trust a Cat Sidhe.

Riona, the fierce Cu Sidhe princess, should never have let him live, but once upon a time, meeting a Cat Sidhe named Kieran changed her life. Traveling to the Garnet Court under the guise of celebrating the Winter Solstice, the last person she expects to find is Kieran. When their eyes meet across the ballroom, Riona wonders what he is there for...and if it's her.

Never love a Cu Sidhe.

Kieran, the cunning brother of the Cat Sidhe queen, knows loving a Cu Sidhe is treason. However, the beautiful Riona calls to him like a melody he cannot resist and he finds himself searching for her around every corner. When he finally captures Riona's attention, he must make a choice—will he ignore his queen's orders or his heart?


Two star crossed lovers desperate to rise above the war between their people. Will love and passion guide them? Or will betrayal and conflict tear them apart?

The Realm of Darkness!

A king with a broken crown. 


Shay rules from the murky corners of the Topaz Court, a realm not many willingly travel to. It promises only one thing —Death. Duty eats away at the dark king, and as he escorts departed souls to the Otherworld, something—or someone—threatens to taint his kingdom and destroy the magic that sustains it. 


A selkie searching for answers. 


Seven years ago, Neri's sister disappeared on dry land over the sands. Neri has prepared every day since to follow after her and find what delays her sister's return to the waves. 


Death hounds after the selkie. Shay shouldn’t stand in its way; to upset the balance is to risk everything. Not even when her spirit stirs something inside him, something he thought long lost...


As the threat to magic grows, the selkie might be the key. Together, Shay and Neri traverse the realms to save their homes, their families, and themselves. Can they succeed under the shadow of death?
