You stop fearing the devil when you’re holding his hand…

Nothing much exciting rolls through Violet White’s sleepy, seaside town… until River West comes along. River rents the guest house behind Violet’s crumbling estate, and as eerie, grim things start to happen, Violet begins to wonder about the boy living in her backyard.

Is River just a crooked-smiling liar with pretty eyes and a mysterious past? Or could he be something more?

Violet’s grandmother always warned her about the Devil, but she never said he could be a dark-haired boy who takes naps in the sun, who likes coffee, who kisses you in a cemetery… who makes you want to kiss back.

Violet’s already so knee-deep in love, she can’t see straight. And that’s just how River likes it.

Less than six months ago my life was twisted and flipped on its side. Things have changed so much I barely recognize myself anymore.

I am no longer an Enforcer.

I am no longer a Witch.

I no longer hate the Fae. (For the most part)

And the sex-on-a-stick-gorgeous-Fae? He isn’t really the Dark Prince.

No, he is the father of my children and with the babies on the way, the land dying and the Mages closing in; alliances will have to be formed if we are all to make it through the war that is coming to our front door.

Between warring Gods and Goddesses, how are any of us supposed to win?

Blurb book one: Sage…

They were born at midnight—four witchlings. Earth, Air, Fire, and Water—bound by magic and blood.
 
Sage Sutton loves horses, the beauty of nature and witchcraft. Her earth magic comes naturally. With the help of her best friend Brooke, they set forth to complete their circle. Not an easy or simple task. They had a grave deadline—the end of summer—eleven months.
 
The witchling, Fire, refuses to accept her powers, and the Air witchling, is nowhere to be found. They don’t have the faintest clue who or where she is. Without a complete circle, they are doomed. Finding the last witchling, Air, is utmost important. She is the key to the final link in the chain.
 
Sage’s birthday is fast approaching, the fall equinox. But they aren’t the only ones born at midnight…a curse unleashed. As each of their eighteenth birthdays approach, so does the strength of the curse.
 
And as if her life isn’t complicated enough, in strolls Blake Sinclair. Blonde. Blue eyes. Adorable. Will Sage be able to control her heart and defeat the curse?

How do you defy destiny?

Helen Hamilton has spent her entire sixteen years trying to hide how different she is—no easy task on an island as small and sheltered as Nantucket. And it’s getting harder. Nightmares of a desperate desert journey have Helen waking parched, only to find her sheets damaged by dirt and dust. At school she’s haunted by hallucinations of three women weeping tears of blood . . . and when Helen first crosses paths with Lucas Delos, she has no way of knowing they’re destined to play the leading roles in a tragedy the Fates insist on repeating throughout history.

As Helen unlocks the secrets of her ancestry, she realizes that some myths are more than just legend. But even demigod powers might not be enough to defy the forces that are both drawing her and Lucas together—and trying to tear them apart.
