Bastian does not want another bride though he craves one like air. He’s decided he will no longer suffer love. It’s simple enough to claim his bride, lock her in a tower, and forget about her.
Acasia has everything to live for. The last thing she wants is to become a Dragon’s midnight snack. When she’s claimed by the dragon, she’s terrified and angry. The dragon frightens her to the point she finally decides a quick death is better than the constant fear.
A strange man temps Acasia and she thinks she’s losing her mind. As Bastian tries to ignore his unwilling bride, curiosity gets the best of him and he slowly falls hopelessly in love like he has in the past.
When Acasia is stolen by another dragon, Bastian realizes Acasia is different and the love he thought he felt before is nothing like what he feels now. When all is lost and his mate lies at death’s door, the only solution is to go to his knees and demand the Goddess take him and not Acasia.

Thomas never thought he would live this long; he expected the usual lifespan of 60 to 70 years. But one terrifying night in 1946 San Francisco has changed all that. He’s now been alive 86 years and still looks 20. He and his associates, Jonathan and Kathryn, have been granted Immortality by a group of sylphs belonging to the Zie Council – led by their queen, Malina – who possess an elixir called Enchantment. But what they and the rest of the Immortals have to do in order to keep receiving this elixir involves protecting sylphs and humans from the faeworlders – vampires and shapeshifters – who want nothing more than to eat, violate, and kill them. For Jonathan, Thomas, and Kathryn, policing the fae is a dirty job, but somebody has to do it. And the payment is eternally priceless.

When Naelen Spencer shows up at Clarke Gannon’s apartment saying he wants to hire her to hunt his sister down, she’s got zilch inclination to actually take that job.
For one thing, she’s not actually looking for an employer. For another thing, Naelen is the kind of rich, entitled playboy that she hates. For a third thing, he’s a dragon shifter, and she’s a dragon slayer. Those things don’t mix.
Sure, okay, she doesn’t kill shifters, only soulless, monster dragons that do nothing but burn, kill, and destroy.
And fine, he does happen to have eyes like the sky in high summer and a deep voice that makes her feel warm all over.
And all right, she needs the money he’s offering. She could use it to help her sister, who’s never caught a break her entire life.
But screw that guy.
That’s what she wants to say, anyway. Instead, she ends up taking him up on his offer, and then she’s flying off in a private jet to get mixed up with a creepy country town, a nest of powerful vampires, and a bunch of potent magical objects.
