It’s hard to have a love life when you don’t have a pulse.

All that changes for Fred Wilder when he meets Elliam Sturm a few weeks after Sloane Beaumont first becomes a Starkiller and kills a god.

As a ghoul, Fred Wilder needs very specialized medicine to combat his constantly rotting body. As a thief, Fred needs that body in good condition. Fortunately for him, Ell does the impossible: brings new life to Fred’s dead flesh.

Just being around Ell makes Fred feel alive for the first time since his untimely demise. He’s so charmed by Ell’s bright personality and shared love of obscure fantasy that he doesn’t think twice about the source of Ell’s power. But this is Archersville, so their blossoming romance is threatened by a dangerous painting that could awaken an ancient god who could destroy the world. Now the fate of billions hinges on Fred completing a daring heist.

But as Fred and Ell work together, the true depth of Ell’s power becomes impossible for Fred to ignore, and he’s forced to accept that perhaps the biggest mystery—and the biggest threat—has been with them all along….

Jakob Kuratowski is a lot of things—a witch, a baker… and a lightweight. Which is how, after a rare night of drinking and dancing, he becomes the mate of an alpha werewolf.

Jakob doesn’t trust his new mate, Erik Lindstrom, any farther than he can throw him, and he’s not about to give up the life he’s built and the job he loves and go live with a bunch of werewolves just because his accidental husband wants him to. Werewolves might have a mystical instinct about their mates, but Jakob needs time.

That doesn’t stop him from helping *their pack*, as Erik insists on calling it, when they have magic trouble. He even lets Erik woo him a little. But when the deadly threat of the unlife—ravenous abominations who dwell in the dark place between the living and the dead—set their sights on Erik, Jakob has to step up and into his role in the pack to save the man he’s coming to love.

Cloister Witte und seine Hundestaffelpartnerin Bourneville finden Vermisste und bringen sie heim.

Doch damit ist die Arbeit nicht immer beendet.

Die junge Transfrau Janet Morrow liegt im Koma, seit sie sich während eines Unwetters von ihrem Auto entfernte. Dass Cloister sie finden konnte, bedeutet nicht, dass die junge Touristin auch heimgefunden hat. Was führte sie nach Plenty in Kalifornien … und wer wollte verhindern, dass sie den Ort wieder verließ?

Mithilfe von Special Agent Javi Merlo, der seine zunehmenden Gefühle für den ungeschliffenen Deputy weiterhin leugnet, deckt Cloister ein zehn Jahre altes Komplott des Schweigens auf, das Plentys korrupte Vergangenheit eröffnet.

Janet Morrows alte Geheimnisse sind nicht die einzigen, die ans Licht kommen. Obwohl Javi seine Vergangenheit hinter sich gelassen hat, scheinen einige Menschen fest entschlossen zu sein, seine Leichen aus dem Keller zu zerren. Seine finstere Vergangenheit mit einem hochrangigen Agenten in Phoenix macht nicht nur die Ermittlungen komplizierter, sondern auch seine Beziehung zu Cloister.

Und seit wann interessiert ihn die überhaupt?

Acsquidentally in Love (Deutsch)

Kraken-Krimi der anderen Dimension | Buch 1

Nichts bringt zwei Männer – oder einen Mann und einen alten Gott – so zusammen wie Rache. 

Privatdetektiv Sloane hat seine Karriere bei der Polizei aufgegeben, um den Mörder seiner Eltern zu finden. Wie sie ist er ein Anhänger längst vergessener Götter, praktiziert ihre Magie und betet sie an ... nicht, dass er jemals eine Antwort erhalten hätte. 

Bis jetzt. 

Azaethoth, der Geringere, mag der Schutzpatron der Diebe und Betrüger sein, aber er kümmert sich um seine Anhänger. Er ist auf die Erde gekommen, um den Mord an einem seiner Lieblinge zu rächen, und vielleicht auch, um den süßen Detektiv zu verzaubern, den das Schicksal ihm in den Weg gelegt hat. Wenn es nach ihm ginge, würden sie viel mehr tun, als nur einen Mörder vor Gericht zu stellen. Denn er ist sich ziemlich sicher, den Mann gefunden zu haben, mit dem er sein unsterbliches Leben verbringen möchte. 

Sloanes Entschlossenheit bröckelt angesichts Azaethoths überraschender Anmut, und die Tentakel, die er manchmal erspähen kann, wenn sie aus der sterblichen Gestalt des Gottes hervorkommen, regen seine Fantasie an. Aber ihre Ermittlungen werden immer seltsamer und tödlicher. Um zu überleben, brauchen sie ein wenig Vertrauen … und viel mystische Feuerkraft.

Wane On Harvest Moon

Moonlight Prophecies | Book Three

Cat shifter Luke and rat shifter Preston have had a solid relationship for ten years, but lately, the increasing attacks on their pack and the stress of raising their adopted daughter are highlighting more of their differences than the values they have in common. When they travel to Glenwood to investigate the source of the ancient artifacts tied to the recent violence, tensions in the shifter community—and their relationship—are already running high.

Strangely, this mystery seems tied to the events that brought them together. On their first mission, eighteen-year-old Luke and twenty-one-year-old Preston had to put aside their differences—and back-burner their mutual attraction—to prevent a disaster that would have revealed the existence of shifter kind to humans. 

But how does what’s happening now connect to their past? And can they find the answers their pack, their species, and their relationship need to survive?

Le loup de la prophétie

Un hiver de loup

Le territoire de la meute écossaise.

Jack et Gregor, les princes loups exilés, auraient voulu ne jamais le quitter. Danny le chien, en revanche, l’a fui dès que possible et il n’avait pas prévu d’y revenir. Quant à Nick, à la fois médecin pathologiste et oiseau charognard, il n’a plus nulle part où aller.

Après bien des périples, il ne leur reste qu’une option : réclamer l’aide du vieil homme afin d’annihiler les prophètes qui les poursuivent depuis leur départ de Durham. Vu la réputation sinistre et méritée du Numitor, chef de meute et père des jumeaux, même les prophètes, ces traîtres aux mains sanglantes, évitent de lui chercher noise.

Quand Jack et Gregor arrivent enfin chez eux, c’est pour apprendre que le vieil homme a disparu, remplacé par un fantoche à la solde des prophètes. Le quatuor, bien qu’endeuillé et hanté par d’anciennes erreurs commises, cherche à démanteler les funestes projets de la prophétesse Rose avant qu’il soit trop tard. Les enjeux montent vite et le froid s’installe jusque dans leurs os lorsqu’ils découvrent les horreurs cachées derrière les légendes et les prophéties.

Dans les Hautes-Terres glacées d’Écosse, Fenrir se réveille et sa faim est inextinguible.

Les prophètes affirment depuis toujours que l’Hiver de loup serait rouge sang, mais ils n’avaient jamais révélé de qui venait le sang.

After a cruel experiment binds him to the soul of Rota, an old god, Alexander has one mission: find Rota’s body. Having a godly boyfriend is great, but it would be better to have one that he could actually touch. Unfortunately, even Alexander’s ability to command Rota’s divine power hasn’t helped.

Lions & Tigers & Bears: Book Two

As part of a military team, Crank needs to keep his head on straight. His unit depends on it. So the recurring sensual dreams he’s having—the ones featuring a shark shifter with dark brown hair and eyes—really screw with his focus. Especially since the shifter is a guy.

Greenland shark shifter Vic can’t stop thinking about Crank, a human military guy he met when Vic got called in for a consult. Crank seems handy with anything that flies, and Vic would be happy to have him at his back, in more ways than one. And that’s a problem—firstly because Vic’s in love with his boyfriend, Saul, but also because Crank is sarcastic, irreverent… and straight.

The problem comes to a head when Saul discovers Vic has been dreaming about a man who isn’t him. Saul does not share. But when Crank starts invading Saul’s dreams too, he has to reassess his feelings. His life may depend on it.

Exploring the growing connection between the three of them will have to wait, though. The upcoming mission demands the team’s full attention. They’re about to discover something huge, and they have badly underestimated the enemy….
