Summary: A Cascade of Moments is the new, enchanting second installment of 'The Fae Souls' series. My life started anew when I arrived at Prince Eldran's mansion with my memories absent and my future uncertain. I met a beautiful woman there named Sorcha and we fell in love, creating something special that brought our lives happiness and wonder. When Prince Eldran granted us permission to remain on his island, we built a life together. It couldn't have been more perfect. Years passed, and our love blossomed. With time on our hands, Sorcha chose to help in the mansion's kitchen, while I worked in the gardens and joined the island's guard detail. It worked well for us, until word reached us that King Auberon and Queen Carisse were returning, and a failed treaty brought about threats of war from a long-standing enemy. It was important to me to protect Sorcha, our home, and the friends we'd made on the island during our years there. I assumed we might have to fight, but I could only hope there was a chance for us to stay together and make it through - safe and sound. A Cascade of Moments is a romantic novella of just over 20,000 words, which contains strong steamy content and language.

Summary: A New F/F Fantasy Romance from the author of Cynthia and Eve. Book 1 of 'The Fae Souls'. When I first arrived at the mansion, I couldn't remember anything. My name, how I'd got there or who the people were around me. I knew I was a woman, and the pink dress and brown ankle boots I wore felt vaguely familiar, but nothing more. It wasn't long before I was told my name was Celina. I was given a suite to stay in and encouraged to prepare for the mysterious Prince Eldran's masquerade party. I found everything I needed in my suite, other than the answers I sought. Fragments of memory hinted at dark experiences, at love and loss, but there was no context and I was uncertain about my history and what the future might hold for me. A stranger at the time, Sorcha found me alone as I sought solace in an empty room. I discovered she too had missing memories, and in her I found a person to talk to. A friend and more, but did we have a chance? A Masquerade in Time is a romantic novella of just over 20,000 words, which contains strong steamy content and language.

First loves. Second chances. Three problems.

Dani Smith has a problem. Scratch that: this fun-loving lesbian has three of them. First, she wakes up hungover and married in Vegas. Oops.

She may have a ring, but her bride is nowhere in sight. The third problem is aloof, cold-hearted Mia: Dani's ex. The last thing that Dani needs is that know-it-all ice queen—even if her first love still makes Dani's heart race. But if she's going to track down her mystery bride before she leaves town, she's going to need some help...

When someone comes along with a solution to his dilemma, he is thrilled.

Summary: When a change in collective conscious sends the Outsiders, a group of aliens, to the shadows below the city, humans reason that the demonization of their peers is simply more “humane.” There’s no question, nor doubt. Just acceptance. Lydia had embraced that sense of “truth” for as long as she can remember. The daughter of a powerful governor, she has been able to live her life with more comforts than most. Comforts can be suffocating, though, and when the opportunity to teach Outsider children in their private, “humane” community becomes available, she takes it. What she finds beneath the city is far from the truth she had grown to know. There she meets Alessia, an Outsider with the knowledge and will to shake the foundation of all those who walk above ground. The two find a new and unexpected connection despite a complete disconnect from the technological world. Or perhaps in spite of it. Still, it takes a lot more than an immutable connection to change the world. Lydia, Alessia, and a small group of Outsiders must navigate a system of corruption, falsehoods, and twists none of them ever saw coming, all while holding on to the hope to come out alive in the end. But it’s a risk worth taking, and a future worth fighting for.

When the combination of the two walked into his life in Luke, Adam couldn’t help but want him. But how was he supposed to know if Luke felt the same attraction? He had no prior experience, no past encounters, nothing to help him. Not even his sight. One look at Adam and Luke wanted him. Sensual, gorgeous, kind, with a strength that Luke was drawn to, Adam was everything Luke desired. Being in Adam’s arms, showing him the pleasure of a man’s body, being touched, held, and desired in return, had Luke wanting more, had him wanting what he knew he couldn’t have. It didn’t matter to him that Adam was blind, but Adam deserved more than someone like him. Luke was a man with a broken past and falling in love with Adam was a foolish thing to do, especially because Adam would never love him back if he found out what Luke was hiding.
