Sanctum Retribution: Shadow Havens Book 3
As Ilea steps farther into her role as the law of the Demesne, anxious speculation about Sebastien and his next move flourishes. Tensions build, as passion sizzles at long-awaited Matings and Kya’s romantic dream comes true when Meniari asks her to attend one with him. It’s a fresh beginning for a warrior with a past and a female hiding a gentle heart behind a tough persona.
Meanwhile, the Father of the Demesnes is having a grand time in Paris, but intelligence soon arrives from the spy he left behind. Infuriated by what he learns, he embarks on a rage-driven plan to force a brutal wedge between the Sanctum and the Saint Rushton Demesne forever, one that will jeopardize Iridea and her unborn child.
A vampiress on the run from the Parisian Demesne risks everything to find Micah Odera in Scotland, shattering his newfound peace with a strange tale of barbaric punishment, an act of treason that saved her life, a nefarious scheme and Circe’s dangerous fascination with Sebastien.
Seeking the protection of the Sanctum, she reveals all she knows to Miriel and Andrieu, forcing the haven into a partnership with the Saint Rushton Demesne. A desperately precarious plan takes shape, as Xavier struggles with Ilea’s demand that he keep a terrible secret for her. If he breaks his vow, the betrayal may cost him her love. If he keeps his word, she may die. Ultimately, Ilea and Iridea will have a single chance to do what only they can – bring Sebastien to meet fate.

The saga of the Sanctum and the Demesne concludes as it began … among angels.
Lucifer’s game has always been about Kellan and Christine and he hasn’t hesitated to manipulate everyone in the living realm and the angelic world to reach his terrible goals. Now, a vicious lie and Christine’s compassionate nature have been used against her. Her abduction, the tragic death of a Sanctum warrior and the brutal battle between Fortune and the Luce brothers, have left everyone in the Shadow Havens reeling.
As archangels and angels descend on the Sanctum, Michael and Kell realize that Christine has tied the hands of those who would have protected her, without realizing what she was doing. Her best hope for coming home rests with Phanuel, a blind, renegade archangel, who hasn’t been seen or heard from in centuries. Hope and repentance may be his area of expertise, but some question where his loyalties remain, since he’s spent far more time with Lucifer than anyone else.
While Christine begins to cope with Lucifer’s manipulation and falsehoods, a bittersweet reunion takes place in the hereafter. There will be a price for what Bride’s done, yet she cannot regret the outcome. It’s only the beginning of what the living, the angels and the denizens of the hereafter will do to maneuver Lucifer into a corner he cannot escape from.
There’s more at stake than the love between a beautiful woman and a shunned angel. The balance of the living world is riding on what happens next. As the threads between the living world and the hereafter tighten into chains, everyone will play a part in the outcome … for better or worse.

Sanctum Renaissance: Shadow Havens Book 6
Fortune sees everything he’s ever wished for in Rachel’s eyes and the time has come for him to tell her who he was so long ago. She sees the strong, beautiful warrior who has taken her heart, but his words may shatter them. If she still loves him after she has his truth, their lives will be perfect… or he’ll annihilate whatever stands in the way of their happiness.
Iridea’s dream is coming to life in Renaissance, a showcase of beauty and the peaceful harmony she hopes supernaturals will find there. As long as she can overcome a big obstacle with her angelic Mate, balance their baby on her hip and manage publicity with a flamboyant out-of-town guest of the Saint Rushton Demesne, she shouldn’t have any problems at all.
As love and searing passions shape the future, a strange, late-night phone call to the Maidenheart Bakery draws Miriel and Andrieu into Saint Rushton to find a desperate woman, looking for help only the fallen death angels can provide. It’s a huge risk, but they can’t chance walking away from her… or what she knows about the Sanctum.
Trouble is blowing in the wind, in the form of the Luce brothers - two vicious werewolves, looking for a home, where an occasional missing human isn’t unusual. They’re about to be swept into the bizarre schemes of a banished archangel, taking them into a violent tempest. This isn’t the kind of war the fallen angels, daemons and vampiric warriors expect, but it’ll be a fight from hell. And, it’s just getting started…

Sanctum Storm: Shadow Havens Book 5
Circe’s arrival in Saint Rushton has Maksim grinding his fangs, but he’s making the best of a volatile situation. When his boss finds a new ally in Gwyn, it’s pure kismet, as the she-wolf is happy to hand over everything she knows about the Sanctum and the Demesne. At the top of Circe’s blow-it-to-hell list is the Maidenheart Bakery, because she knows who is serving the pastries and her hunger for revenge is insatiable.
All that stands in the way of Circe’s plot, is a force of the havens’ warriors and a certain resurrected vampire, half a world away, with three daemon healers and Circe’s chauffeur. They’re not exactly what Sebastien is used to, but he has a plan of his own. With Saan’s help, it may even work.
As Tam’s love deepens for Amaya, the couple searches for a way to make things right with Kellan, as the angel struggles with his concern for the woman who was once under his wing. When Kell gives in to his need to see her, the blunder is epic, but it provides Miri and Andrieu with critical information about what’s going on in Saint Rushton.
It’s the break Fortune has been hoping for and the sooner he’s done his job, the sooner he’ll have Rachel in his bed. Some will die in Circe’s storm of wrath, but another storm will fulfill the arcane prophecy of a banished angel.

“Entertaining and exciting, the story is full of sub-plots that allow for all the characters to become real and have their own very special parts to play as the action unfolds. Complete in itself, Sanctum Angels is a great read but creates the desire to follow the lives of the characters in upcoming volumes.” –

When Priana Grey walks into a bank, she isn’t expecting to be taken hostage by a violent thief; nor, is she expecting Detective Joe Cafaris to offer his life for hers. The stepdaughter of fallen angels of the Sanctum, she has concealed her true nature to move among humans for years, but Joe’s courage astounds her. Although she knows that falling in love with a human is a disaster, she just can’t ignore what she feels.
Joe is a tough loner, cool in the most dangerous situations, but he’s not ready for the scorching desire he feels for Priana. He has a million logical reasons to walk away, but his heart wants something else.
Priana’s stepbrother, Keirc, warns that she’ll find only misery with Joe, yet he guards a perilous secret of his own. His lover, Iridea, is the daughter of Sebastien Galaurus, a ruthless vampire who leads the Demesne, a powerful supernatural haven quite unlike the Sanctum. When a stunning crisis forces Priana into the heart of the Demesne, a maelstrom explodes in the shadow of supernatural havens on the brink of war, where fallen angels, vampires, weres and daemons call the shots and humans are viewed as critically frail - a place where men and supernaturals can die.

“The fourth installation of the Shadow Havens series is chock full of surprises and plot twists. It contains several storylines that will all lead up to a powder keg of events in the next book. While the main focus of the book is on Kya and Meniari and their growing relationship, we also get to see a lot of Circe and Sebastien, Tamuel and Amya, Rachel and Fortune, Xavier and Ilea, and finally Sebastien’s first mate Sabine. The subplots of all these supporting characters give the story a wonderful depth and dimension. It also helps propel the story forward by building an almost obscene level of anticipation for what will come next.”

Sanctum Illusions: Shadow Havens Book 4
The past has a way of haunting those who want to forget it most...
Meniari has fallen in love with Kya, but all bets are off when his ex, a former Sanctum warrior, shows up with ideas of rekindling the fire that once burned between them. Tamuel has come to the Sanctum too, along with his rebellious guiding angel, Kellan. He’s finally received permission to return to the angelic realms - as long as Miriel agrees to crush his heart to end his mortal life. Kellan’s onboard with that, because he can’t have his wings back until Tam dies. The only obstacle is Amaya… and Tam’s mysterious fascination with Circe’s former lover.
While Miri and Andrieu grapple with circumstances at the Sanctum, Fortune and his Demesne warriors are carrying out Ilea’s orders to clean up the haven’s clubs in Saint Rushton. Things are going well, until Circe sends Maksim and his vampires to Saint Rushton.
Sabotage and spying are the games, but the players get more than they bargained for, after Circe receives a photo of Amaya on Tamuel’s arm. Overwhelmed with bloodlust and fury, she breaks human and vampiric law, causing dire consequences.
As dangerous conflicts arise in the havens, Saan meets Sebastien’s first Mate, Sabine, in the hereafter. He may think his work in the realm of the living is done, but Sabine brings him a surprising plea for help. Can he reach out to the male who allowed his death?
Bound by threads from the past and the hereafter, shocking events unfold that will bring warriors to their knees and test the courage of angels.
