HALF DRAGON, HALF WOMAN, CAN SHE SAVE HER FRIEND’S SOUL – WITHOUT LOSING HER HEART?

Mercy Wilson is a reporter in the San Francisco Bay Area, but she’s also more – and less – than human. Half woman, half dragon, she’s a draman – unable to shape shift but still able to unleash fiery energy. Soon her powers will be put to the test.

Mercy’s friend Rainey has enlisted her help to solve her sister’s murder. Then a horrible accident claims Rainey’s life, leaving Mercy only five days to find her killer. If Mercy fails, according to dragon law, Rainey’s soul will be doomed to roam the earth for eternity. But how can Mercy help when she herself is a target? With nowhere else to turn, she must join forces with a sexy stranger – the mysterious man they call muerte, or death itself, who’s as irresistible as he is treacherous. But can even Death keep Mercy alive for long enough to find her answers?

SHE’S GOT A DANGEROUS SECRET – AND POWERS FAR BEYOND HUMAN . . .

When Destiny McCree wakes up beside a dead man on an Oregon beach, she knows only this: she was to keep moving, keep searching and keep one step ahead of the forces that have been pursuing her from the heart of Scotland to this isolated spot. Why? The death of her lover has left her alone, with little memory of her past. A glimmering serpent-shaped ring is the one clue she has – and a bargaining chip in a most dangerous game.

Enter Trae Wilson, a master thief with a sexy, knowing grin and a secret agenda of his own. Destiny and Trae both have powers far beyond human – and both are running for their lives. Together they’re rising a tide of danger, magic and lust . . . but with killers stalking their every move, they must use any means necessary, even each other, to survive – until the shocking secret of one woman’s destiny finally unravels.
