Synopsis

“Fear to the fearless. Hope to the hopeless. Mercy to those who hate you. Death to those who love you.” – Prophesy of the Kalian Twins.

In the land of Kale there lies a delicate balance between the powerful Temples and the rulers from an ancient, royal bloodline. The Temples are ruled through combat, determined by a series of tournaments. Of these tournament champions, sixty are chosen to become Defendants, an elite team charged with protecting the realm from all enemies. Selection to this team is considered the highest of honours and leadership of the team is decided only once every thirteen years.

Princesses Mariana and Ameria, twin daughters of two such champions, are taken as children to separate, yet equally powerful Temples. Through years of rigorous training both are educated in the arts of combat, swordplay, and the ancient traditions of the Temple Gods. Both eventually obtain the rank of Kalian Champions with the expectation of one day serving upon the coveted Defendant… Continue reading

Synopsis

All her life, Lily has been told to loosen up and relax. But she likes her life the way it is: neat, tidy, and logical. She’s not repressed. She’s controlled. (Unless there are pizza rolls.)
Then she meets Gabriel.
Gabriel is the epitome of tall, dark, and handsome. In fact, he’s irresistible—literally. But he’s certain he’ll never fall in love. How can he when he knows the real reason women want him?
Then he meets Lily.
The flames of their attraction are scorching hot, but when Lily figures out the secret to Gabriel’s supernatural appeal, everything will change. And when they finally come together, they’ll both end up with a lot more than they bargained for.

One Hell of a Guy is the first book in the Infernal Love trilogy. It was previously published under a different author name.

Synopsis

Angels and demons do battle for a girl possessed by the spirit of a powerful, dead angel in this fabulous paranormal debut by Sabrina Benulis. Archon is the first of the Books of Raziel, a truly fantastic and very hip new take on heaven’s warriors that readers of the angelic novels of Danielle Trussoni, Lauren Kate, Becca Fitzpatrick, and Alexandra Adornetto are sure to adore. Archon is new wave urban fantasy, a tale of the supernatural that brilliantly blends passion, obsession, horror, and suspense in a way that will appeal to dark fantasy fans and paranormal romance readers equally. Sabrina Benulis’s angels are creepy, sexy, and totally awesome—and, like Anne Rice’s amoral, ambiguous, and addicting vampires, they will seduce and terrify you at the same time.

Synopsis

“All wickedness is but little to the wickedness of a woman: let the portion of a sinner fall upon her.”
– Ecclesiasticus 25:19

As a direct descendant of the 19th century vigilante gang, the Bald Knobbers, Ezekiel Woods, Jr. has been indoctrinated into a world ruled by violence and a literal interpretation of the bible his entire life.

Now, over a hundred years later, Zeke continues his ancestors’ crusade, spending his days camouflaged as an aloof middle-aged grocery store sacker and his nights in a farmhouse cellar, preparing captives’ souls for their ultimate destiny: redemption or death.

His latest abductee, an indomitable Texan working her way through a third-life crisis, chooses another option: escape.

Zeke must recapture this lost sheep or face a consequence far worse than any worldly fate: that God has forsaken him.
