Jane Yellowrock is back on the prowl against the children of the night...
The vampire council has hired skinwalker Jane Yellowrock to hunt and kill one of their own who has broken sacred ancient rules—but Jane quickly realizes that in a community that is thousands of years old, loyalties run deep...
Jane Yellowrock is a shape-shifting skinwalker who's always up for a fight — even if it means putting her life on the line...
The Master of Natchez, Mississippi has a nasty problem on his hands. Rogue vampires — those who follow the Naturaleza and believe that humans should be nothing more than prey to be hunted — are terrorizing his city. Luckily, he knows the perfect skinwalker to call in to take back the streets.
But what he doesn't tell Jane is that there's something different about these vamps. Something that makes them harder to kill — even for a pro like Jane. Now, her simple job has turned into a fight to stay alive...and to protect the desperately ill child left in her care.
In a novel filled with lush imagery and exhilarating action, Faith Hunter creates a near-future world caught in the throes of an ambiguous apocalypse-where a woman with everything to hide finds her true destiny revealed.
As humanity struggles with religious strife and seraphs and demons fight a never-ending battle, a new species has arisen. «Neomages" are human in appearance, but able to twist left-over creation energy to their will. A threat to both humans and seraphs, they are confined in luxurious Enclaves.
Thorn St. Croix is no ordinary neomage. Nearly driven insane by her powers, she is smuggled out of an Enclave and now lives among humans, channeling her gift of stone-magery into jewelry making. But when Thaddeus Bartholomew, a dangerously attractive policeman, tells her that her ex-husband has been kidnapped, Thorn risks revealing her identity to find him. And for Thorn, the punishment for revelation is death.
Jane Yellowrock is a shapeshifting skinwalker you don't want to cross — especially if you're one of the undead...
For a former vampire killer like Jane, having Leo Pellisier as boss took some getting used to. But now, someone is out to take his place as Master Vampire of the city of New Orleans, and they're not afraid to go through Jane to do it. After an attack that's tantamount to a war declaration, Leo knows his rival is both powerful and vicious, but Leo's not about to run scared. After all, he has Jane. But then, a plague strikes, one that takes down vampires but leaves humans untouched, as carriers of the dread disease.
Now, to uncover the identity of the vamp who wants Leo's territory, and to find the cause of the vamp-plague, Jane will have to venture into the underbelly of vamp society, where rules were made to be broken. As she circles closer to the truth, she finds the answers to the secret that could turn every vampire in the U.S. true-dead...
In a post-apocalyptic ice age, neomage Thorn St. Croix was nearly driven insane by her powers. She lived as a fugitive, disguised as a human and married to a human man, channeling her gifts for war into stone-magery. When she was discovered, her friends and neighbors accepted her, but warily. Not so the mage who arrives from the Council of Seraphs, who could be her greatest ally-or her most dangerous foe. And when it's revealed that her long-gone sister, Rose, is still alive, Thorn must make a choice-and risk her own life in the process.
The vampires of Asheville, North Carolina, want to establish their own clan, but since they owe loyalty to the Master Vampire of New Orleans they must work out the terms with him. To come up with an equitable solution, he sends an envoy with the best bodyguard blood money can buy: Jane Yellowrock.
But when a group of local campers are attacked by something fanged, Jane goes from escort to investigator. Unless she wants to face a very angry mast vampire, she will have to work overtime to find the killer. It's a good thing she's worth every penny.
Living among humans in a post-apocalyptic ice age, neomage Thorn St. Croix has learned to count on her friends, but she's lost count of her enemies. She is a source of both fear and fascination for the people of Mineral City: Her powers can save them from the forces of evil, but also attract demon spawn and succubae. And fighting on her own turf nearly gets Thorn and those she holds dear killed.
But Thorn's ultimate test awaits deep under the snow-covered mountains beyond the village, where an imprisoned, fallen seraph desperately needs her help. There, hidden in the hellhole, the armies of Darkness assemble to ensure this subterranean rescue will be Thorn's final descent.
First in a brand new series from the author of the Rogue Mage novels

But now she's been hired by Katherine Fontaneau, one of the oldest vampires in New Orleans and the madam of Katie's Ladies, to hunt a powerful rogue vampire who's killing other vamps...
Adrian Ruxley podrá ser un encantador libertino que hechiza hasta las moscas, pero no es un hombre dado a permanecer quieto mientras una dama es acosada, ni siquiera en una boda organizada por la dama en cuestión, Emma Boscastle, profesora de buenos modales en su academia de Londres para jóvenes damas. Adrian se enfrenta al ofensor, se produce un altercado, y ahora este adulador se encuentra recuperándose bajo el techo de Emma, encantado de la profunda preocupación que refleja su encantador rostro. Ella tiene un encanto que ningún libertino puede resistir.
Emma está escandalizada con su propio comportamiento, seducida por un desconocido, atractivo ciertamente, eso sí. ¿Cómo podrá ocultar su indiscreción de la mirada de sus perceptivos hermanos? La pasión que Adrian ha despertado, y los sensuales placeres que le ha mostrado, han convertido los días de Emma en la academia en una exhibición impropia y sus noches en un audaz abismo de sensualidad. Pero cuando su intimidad revela los turbulentos secretos de Adrian, Emma quiere afrontar su más ambicioso plan: reformar a un libertino.
El apuesto oficial de caballería sir Gabriel Boscastle, regresa de Waterloo siendo un héroe, sólo para retomar su búsqueda de placeres prohibidos en Londres. No hay apuesta que este cínico caballero no acepte, ni mujer que no pueda seducir. Pero cuando viaja a la mansión campestre que ganó a las cartas, descubre que existe un juego al que jamás ha jugado, y que podría haber encontrado la horma de su zapato. Su contrincante y vecina no es otra que Alethea Claridge, la única persona que le plantó cara durante sus años más alocados y la única mujer que ha logrado capturar su corazón.
La hermosa y solitaria lady Alethea sigue, aparentemente, de luto por su prometido, que murió en la batalla. Pero bajo su escudo de fingida aflicción, oculta un atroz secreto que podría destruir su reputación para siempre. De modo que, cuando una noche este apuesto jinete regresa como un trueno a su vida, comprensiblemente recela de él. Alethea defendió a Gabriel cuando era un muchacho travieso. Pero ahora que es un seductor, le revela sus deseos sensuales sin la menor duda, pese a que jura que se reformará. ¿Se redimirá este irresistible granuja y le devolverá a Alethea la confianza en el amor o la arruinará para siempre? Alethea no tardará en tener la respuesta mientras Gabriel pone en tela de juicio todo lo que ella cree acerca del amor, de sí misma, y de lo que se precisa para ser un héroe.
From London’s ballrooms to its sizzling bedrooms, award-winning author Jillian Hunter spins a seductive dance of desire and breathtaking romance.
Lord Griffin Boscastle has no intention of ending his glorious career as a rakehell now that he has inherited a dukedom. Still, there are responsibilities he must discharge before his pleasures resume, including finding a bride, and depositing his incorrigible niece at a relative’s academy outside London. It is at this so-very-proper finishing school that flame-haired instructress Harriet Gardner awakens in Griffin emotions so dangerously intoxicating that he must avoid her at all cost. Yet when Harriet finds work in the townhouse where Griffin resides, her presence tempts him at every turn.
Harriet has survived London’s streets far too long to let an arrogant duke woo a bride he doesn’t want when she desires him for herself, and she has seen too much of life not to recognize a man ripe for redemption. But just as Harriet finds the perfect cure for His Lordship’s devilish ways, a vindictive enemy intervenes, and the duke whom Harriet has plotted to save suddenly becomes her devoted protector.
