Devil’s Lullaby– The Ringer’s Masquerade Series
This will debut June 15, 2012 through Lycaon Press.
Sebastian’s haunting gaze seemed to penetrate my very being revealing my secrets, fears, and desires. My name rolled off his tongue, tempting me to take exactly what I hungered for. His world was laced with agony and inconvenient truths, whereas mine was saturated with sweet, beautiful, carefree lies. Sebastian promised me nothing of a happy ending. The demonic spawn with an angelic voice could derail my only purpose for living, but still I hesitated to look away. My curiosity would certainly be my undoing–but then again, death was inevitable.
Life perceived by the soulless ones…
Created to die, Catherine’s fate never veers from the surgical death awaiting her next birthday. As a soulless spawn, she’s utterly obedient to all of the Ringer’s demands in hopes to fulfill her only purpose for existence–to be the perfect organ donor for her terminal progenitor. Although Catherine hasn’t ever met her progenitor, an unexplainable, impossible bond ties their lives together, forever.
Catherine waits patiently for death, until Sebastian gives her a taste of something more, something worth fighting for. When his uncontrollable, consuming passion can’t get any more dangerous, Sebastian reveals the Ringer’s most guarded secrets–secrets they’d kill to keep.

Unspoken Lies released Jan 20, 2012
With the Unseelie prince’s dangerously addictive kiss lingering on her lips, Roxy is appointed by the Seelie Court to investigate their king’s murder. As more faeries turn up missing or dead, Roxy must find the killer before accusations push the two courts into war.
The problem: the killer orchestrates a twisted game of hide-and-seek, as if amused by the web of lies they create. One catch: all the clues lead to an Unseelie prince being the killer mastermind – the very faerie whose touch Roxy craves.

“I was created to die. Death isn’t what scares me. I’m afraid what they’ll do if I don’t play by their rules.”
“You don’t have to do everything they want, James.”
The rage in his eyes fizzled into misery but, even as anguish threatened to overtake his soul, hope lingered. His familiar scent drew me closer. It reminded me of the young man he used to be. He towered over me, as if he could shelter me from the cruelty of life. It was tempting to let him, but I knew it would just be another lie. The Ringer made a game out of life and death. They created the rules and demanded everyone abide by them or suffer the consequences. Nevertheless, I couldn’t ignore the truth any longer. I needed answers.
“To protect the ones I love…” James said, explaining why he never rebelled. He leaned in close enough to steal a kiss. An agonized smile crept onto his face, “To protect you.”
A fate worse than death…
All of Catherine’s dreams ended with her progenitor’s sacrifice and the loss of her beloved. Surrounded by a scornful family, and friendships built upon lies, she’s never felt more alone. The Ringer denies her plea to be an organ donor yet monitors her relentlessly. She is unable to live a life free of the hospital’s control. Her future unravels as disturbing questions arise and hidden lies surface. However, what’s even more troubling than the Ringer’s dangerous secrets are the torturous punishments they deliver to those who defy them.

Forgotten– First book in the Fate Trilogy
Finished Feb 2012 - Still looking for a publisher….
His perseverance unnerved, watching me like some kind of twisted guardian angel. However, my blindness dubbed it nearly impossible to prove his stalking behavior. Jace waited confidently for me to come to him, like he knew my defiance would crumble. With one touch he’d awakened my soul. His charisma lured me close. Fiery urges enticed me to give into temptation, discarding reason, which was exactly why I fought them... until twilight. Jace was a different kind of night terror –dangerously mouth-watering.
"Escape from reality, Gwyneth," Jacewhispered in my dream. His heat, power, and fervor encased us. His lips hoveredabove mine, waiting for me to close the gap. "Sometimes it can be too painful to live in."
Trouble would certainly find me if I got involved with a guy like Jace – unhinged, rebellious…insanely addictive. But dreams were to be an escape from reality; this wasn’t real. What’s the worst that could happen?
Gwyneth’s story began long before she watched her family brutally murdered and lost her sight. Hunted by people she’s never seen, she tries to forget her unsettling past, even though she knows someone’s watching her from afar. Visions are the only escape from her blindness. She sees glimpses of a complex future when a dangerously charismatic young man walks into her life. From the moment Jace lays his eyes on her, Gwyneth’s life is complicated tenfold.
He knows information about Gwyneth that only a psychopathic stalker could dig up. Secrets about her bloody past surface… Unable to decide what to believe, Gwyneth seeks answers to the questions burning in her heart. But the ancient truth she uncovers is more than any high school romance Gwyneth bargained for. She’s pulled into an ageless battle brewing between immortals and eternal hunters– both of which are desperate to get their hands on her.
