Someone is hunting the fantastical creatures of Catalina Island.
When a magical amulet gives marine biologist Naomi Twain the power to see through glamours it plunges her into a world of danger and intrigue. Fantastical creatures are everywhere, but hidden, on Catalina Island—and someone is hunting them, putting at risk a unique, magical ecosystem.
Corey Madrigal is bathing a behemi, a flying miniature pig, when Naomi crashes into his life. With a natural talent for seeing through glamours, he feels a responsibility to the creatures of his island home, creatures who were the friends of his childhood. Now, he’s a Hollywood special effects artist, and he’s going to be an amazing ally for Naomi in her quest to capture the hunters of the island’s fantastical creatures.
But the hunters have their own agenda.
And then, there’s the ghost…
Intense danger, wild storms, and passionate loyalties put to the test. Fantastical Island is a stand-alone adventure in the Old School series.
Other New Releases
Familiar Magic, The London Coven series, Book 1, by MV Stott
Three dead witches. An unknown killer. One big mistake: they left me alive.
My name is Stella and I’m the Familiar to the London Coven.
Magic is real. It’s all around you, and it’s dangerous. Uncanny things lurk in the shadows, hell-bent on murder and destruction. It’s my job to make sure the people of my city are protected, and I’m usually pretty good at it, but now…
…now something has dropped into my life and torn my coven apart. It did the impossible and murdered three of the most powerful creatures in London, leaving me alone and running scared.
Something evil beyond anything I’ve ever experienced is loose in London, something with the power to squash me like a bug…
…and I’m going to destroy it.
My name is Stella Familiar, and evil just picked on the wrong woman.
Lady of Silver, Shona Husk
A man on a mission
A brutal crime is haunting detective Dale Morgan. A young woman has been murdered on the city’s outskirts, and her blood drained. Dale suspects the leader of a depraved cult may be to blame. Yet with barely a shred of evidence at the crime scene, Dale will have to turn to the one person he despises almost as much as the killers he puts behind bars.
A woman with secrets
To humans, Saba Venn is a psychic, but she’s Albah, a race long forgotten by humans but who live amongst them, her powers fueled by blood and silver. She agrees to help Detective Morgan, if it means stopping the vampire cult she believes is behind the killing. But the attraction she feels with Dale is immediate, and as their relationship intensifies she begins to doubt she can keep her secret from him.
[Shona is a fantastic Aussie author – the only person I know who has ever released a goblin into the botanical gardens of my city, Perth – For the Love of a Goblin Warrior]
Immortal Kiss, JK Coi
It has been two years since Baron’s initiation into the world of the Immortals and was forced to set aside his past to embrace the challenges of his new future…a future without the only woman he ever cared about.
Maxine is strong, determined, and loyal to a fault, but her promise to Baron’s brother is a hard one to keep, because it means tracking Baron down and dragging him home to face the music. But the man she finds isn’t the same one who broke her heart when he left two years ago without even saying goodbye, and now that she’s been sucked into his dangerous new world, nothing will ever be the same again.
When Baron encounters a vicious vampire who vows to destroy everything he loves, it doesn’t faze him in the least. He gave up everything he loved along with his humanity. But then the demon finds Maxine, leaving her broken and battered on Barron’s doorstep, and he realizes he still has something to lose…
[JK is one of my fantabulous Antho Sisters. Back in 2011, she, PG Fort, Stacy Gail and I had novellas in the anthology, A Clockwork Christmas. We had the best time promoting that book together, although we live in three different countries.]
