Sanguine and Stygian
A Heart of Blood and Ashes meets The Witcher in this sexy, action-packed fantasy romance.
In a world where mercenary clans hold all the power and children are cursed from birth by blood magic, Kara McKenna is one of the unlucky ones. Marked by a curse that awakens if she’s responsible for someone’s death, she’s spent her entire life as an outcast. She’s working as a farrier in the mountain reaches when the Sanguine Riders invade in search of a cursed woman. Kara’s family is killed in the ensuing violence, and she’s left destitute, homeless, and alone. She resolves to join the Sanguine’s rival clan—the Stygian Brotherhood—for the training that will enable her revenge.
Tensions flare amid the training yard as Kara and the Stygian commander, Logan Vakarian, wrestle with their growing attraction to one another. If she succeeds in her revenge and her curse awakens, she’ll have to feed its dark appetites with violence or passion each month, or risk succumbing to a blood rage.
As Kara’s hunt for the mercenaries responsible for her family’s death comes to a head and her relationship with Logan deepens, she’ll be forced to choose where her loyalties lie—with the only family she has left, or the deadly mercenary she’s falling in love with
The Stygian Crown
The highly anticipated sequel to Sanguine and Stygian, a dark fantasy romance continuing Kara and Logan’s story as they go from battlefield to ballroom in an effort to hunt down the elusive leader of the Sanguine Riders before it’s too late. Passions will burn and secrets will be revealed in the glittering palace of seven spires.
Kara McKenna. Farrier, mercenary, spy.
After accepting a royal contract to identify Sanguine assassins targeting the princess of the realm, Kara goes undercover at court disguised as a noblewoman. But all is not as it seems in Lerathil’s marbled halls, and as long-buried secrets are unearthed within, Kara grows a target of her own.
Separated from Logan, Kara’s left to navigate the court’s treacherous smiles by herself. When he returns—and the cunning princess Kara is tasked to protect comes between them—Kara is pushed to the brink. She resorts to dark blood magic to sate her curse, cutting herself off from her powers in the process.
But Lerathil is a dangerous place to lower one’s guard, and the results of her dark bargain threaten to change the landscape of Teleria forever.
