An homage to Taming of The Shrew:
Lord Jesper Kyr doesn't know what to make of the prickly Iaso upon encountering the country lass in her back garden. When Hektor throws down the gauntlet - successfully court and bed the bookish blue-eyed shrew within a fortnight or forfeit the game - he gladly accepts the challenge ...and Jesper never loses to his cousin.
Iaso lives with her drunk of a father, a minor noble of no importance. He often gambles away what little Iaso earns with her beer-brewing skills. She is resigned to a life of spinsterhood after an embarrassing scandal years ago ruined her reputation. An opportunity presents itself to pay off all of her father's debts. Will Iaso find the price too high?
It started off as business , but now it's something more. They've never met in person, but Bryony and Enzo are the closest of friends. They worked in different states on the same project two jobs ago, staying in touch through calls and text. Enzo feels like he can share anything with her. Soon, Bryony is all he can think about. So why won't she meet him?
From their late-night conversations, Bryony knows she's not what Enzo envisions in a woman. Wrong shape, wrong hair, wrong everything. He's brilliant, funny and off-limits for someone like her. Bryony is determined to preserve their long-distance friendship, even if it means sacrificing her heart.
Second in the MYTHOLOGY & FOLKLORE series:
Baba Akaga, the Red Mother, is the name given to the mysterious flame-haired woman who appears in the Empire from across the Far Seas to save the Emperor's wife during childbirth. She agrees to stay and share her skills with the foremost adepts of the Palace under the watchful eye of the irritating PalDin, careful not to give away all of her secrets, and most definitely not her heart.
PalDin, the head of the Emperor's Elite Guard is tasked with watching over the foreigner with the flashing eyes and impertinent smile. He is steadfastly loyal to the throne. PalDin doesn't trust the woman's methods or her motives. He's determined to uncover her treachery. After all, in the old stories, the demons always had red hair.
Third in the MYTHOLOGY & FOLKLORE series:
Tannith is a crofter's daughter who lives alone, barren. The village crops are failing. The fields are flooded with brackish water, ruining the plants. In place of her childhood friend, Tannith agrees be sacrificed by the priests as a harvest offering to appease the Marsh King. She is resigned to her fate, happy to save Ara's life.
Preachaun is the Marsh King, an ignoble title given to him by the capricious far darrig fairies after he loses a wager based on foolish pride. He lives at the edge of a swamp by the sea, cursed to remain there forever until a mortal woman professes her love for him, unbidden. Preachaun was trained to fight, not to woo. Where will he find a mortal woman, and if he does, can he manage the impossible?
Fourth in the MYTHOLOGY & FOLKLORE series:
Beautiful Alys refuses an arranged match with the arrogant Lord Viggo. As punishment, her wealthy merchant father sends Alys to the cloister steps rather than pay for her tattoo. He wants Lord Viggo to chose Alys for the fertility rite, forcing the issue. Only it's the older sister, a honey-eyed acolyte, who stands before Viggo once they are in the Sanctuary.
Lorisa will do anything for her sister, even switch places to keep Alys from a loveless marriage. She begs the saturnine man to complete the rite with her instead, pretending it was Alys he bedded. Lord Viggo agrees on one condition - that Lorisa continue to warm his bed as his wife in place of Alys. If she breaks her sacred vows, will he break her foolish heart?
