Here is a summary of a few of the projects my agent is working on placing. Of course Eternal Knights is not listed here since its got its own page:) Eternal Knights is in a 2nd and 3rd read with several editors and I hope to have news on it soon. It's the book that Berkley took to committee and it got booted because the upper mgt said they'd bought too many vamps:(
This is actually an anthology with two other amazing authors. I am honored to be working on this with them!
One woman seeks her best friend, who is missing,and faces an evil like none she has ever known. One man, not wholly human, may be her only hope. But to earn his help, and save her friend, Joline Morris must enter a dark and erotic world where danger and passion collide. A world that will make her face her deepest fears before she finds salvation for herself and those she loves.
The Beast Within
Known only as 'Jag', he leads an army, the Knights of White, in the battle of good over evil, fighting the soulless Darkland Beasts who took his wife and his life. Saved by an immortal of mystical powers, he, too, is now immortal, destined to live with the vengeance he feels in his heart. He is torn between the beast stirring his soul and the goodness his mentor presses him to embrace.
But soon the true origins of the war being fought will become clear. For this is a battle of angels; Raphael, a protector of humanity, against, Cain, the fallen one, from the Underworld.
Cain will stop at nothing to take down his adversary, even bringing back Jag’s wife back to life in the form of forbidden temptation. His plan, to destroy the Knights, and conquer good with evil.
Now, Jag will find the one he lost, and their love will either lead him to the light or the ultimate darkness.
Not Dead Enough
Book One of a Series
By Lisa Renee Jones
We’ve all heard the stories. Tales told around camp fires and at slumber parties. Urban legends, myths, and yes, ghost stories. We go to the movies, begging to be scared. We buy the newest horror novel the minute it hits the shelves. We beg to be scared. Wanting fear. Needing it. Getting a high off the adrenaline rush of spine tingling terror. Convincing ourselves these dark things live only in the imagination…but that’s what evil wants us to think, thriving on our ignorance. Drinking innocence like fine wine. Waiting. Planning. Lurking in the shadows of existence with the poisonous of its presence and then targeting the souls of the defenseless for attack. Preying on the weak and using them to stalk those stronger.
And only one force stands between the hunted and the hunter.
Born with beauty meant to disguise the potency of their skills from those they hunt, they are the chosen seven. Women born into their destiny as part of magical genetic lines. These gifted seven are overseen by the Interworld Council, the ‘law’ ruling all things paranormal.
As ‘Guardians’ of the portals leading from one world to the next, these women are considered guardians of the unknowing humans, shielding them from the spirit world and fighting darkness. They are strong, possessing supernatural powers. They are the force that controls the lines dividing two worlds, the living and the dead. The barrier separating the spirits of the past from the physical bodies of today.
For in the otherworld, the realm between life and death, there is darkness beyond human comprehension. Sinister beings demanding to be seen and known. Yearning to take control of the living. Preying on those who believe them non-existent. There is only one way to stop their malicious intent to claim good as evil.
The Circle of Seven.
And now, one of those seven will face an enemy like no other. This Guardian, the daughter of the council’s leader, will be forced to align herself with a sworn enemy of her people…a vampire. For his brother wants to unite the dead and the undead, and this Guardian and vampire must stop them. This woman’s courage to forgive will become salvation, of herself and of life as we know it. And one man, a vampire, someone others consider an enemy, will become her bridge to the path called destiny.
The Walker Brother's Trilogy. Three wild and sexy brothers and the women who know how to tame them.
