Second Star to the Left
The swagger and adventure of Pirates of the Caribbean meets the sexy banter of The Hating Game, in this retelling of Peter Pan that’s far from the Neverland you know.

Banished for doing the unthinkable, selling the hottest drug in Neverland—pixie dust, Tinker Bell wants absolution. Determined to find a way home, Tink doesn’t hesitate to follow the one lead she has, even if that means seducing a filthy pirate to steal precious gems out from under his…hook.

Captain Hook believes he’s found a real treasure in Tink. That is, until he recovers from her pixie dust laced kiss with a curse that turns the seas against him. With his ship and reputation at the mercy of raging storms, he tracks down the little minx and demands she remove the curse. Too bad she can’t.

However, the mermaid queen has a solution to both of their problems…if Tink and Hook will work together to retrieve a magical item for her.

As they venture to the mysterious Shrouded Isles to find the priceless treasure, their shared nemesis closes in, and his wrath is nothing compared to the realization that achieving their goal may mean losing one another for good.

Coming Soon from City Owl Press.

Ilya’s Gambit
An enemies-to-lovers fantasy romance perfect for fans of A Heart of Blood and Ashes and The Bridge Kingdom.

Ilya Valerious was born to rule the city-state of Sorrena in her mother’s footsteps. She spent her entire life preparing for that destiny, until the tyrannical emperor conquered her city. Held hostage to ensure her people’s obedience by the emperor’s first captain, Lucien, she plots a dangerous gambit to free her people: seduce the captain, source information for a growing rebel movement, take them all down from within.

Lucien never questioned his role in the empire or Emperor Ryszard, the father-figure who saved him from starvation as an orphan, until he met Ilya. Despite the dangerous temptation she offers, Lucien keeps Ilya close to try and sway her toward his emperor’s side. However, when she reveals that he may have been kidnapped by the emperor and groomed into a magical weapon of war, Lucien’s carefully disciplined life begins to unravel.

As the emperor’s power grows, Ilya wrestles with her growing desire for Lucien and her duty to Sorrena. Aiding the rebellion to free her city will shatter the trust between them, and possibly spell Lucien’s death. Lucien knows that loving and protecting Ilya is treason, but he can’t lose the one person who truly sees him. To save the people they love, and each other, they will have to decide where their hearts and loyalties lie, if the emperor doesn’t kill them first.

Coming in 2023 from City Owl Press.
