She has the beauty of an angel, with deep secrets Alex can’t penetrate. No matter how hard he tries, Theodora won’t let Alex in.

They can never be together. The notion is laughable. Humans are inferior, a scourge on the Fae and on the magic passed down to them by angels millennia ago. Keen won’t add to the half-breed problem that threatens his people’s existence by giving in to his attraction to Reese.

Reese can’t stand Keen. He criticizes her clothing, won’t answer a straight question, and is too handsome for her peace of mind. Her entire life, people have pegged Reese for a shallow, ditzy blonde. She won’t accept the stereotype from the large, arrogant Fae too. Until Keen shows a side of himself that is protective and dangerously seductive.

But Keen refuses to acknowledge their connection. Until he’s faced with the decision to betray his people, or lose Reese forever.

Book One of the Halven Rising series.

Elena Rosales has busted her ass to get into a good college. She’s the only one in her family ever to attend, and expectations are high. No pressure. But Elena’s got this one in the bag, because she’s as dependable as the molecules she studies, as reliable as the chemical reactions that comfort her in their predictability. Until they don’t.

Elena has always wondered why her mother abandoned her on her first birthday. It’s not until she turns eighteen and her chemistry experiments go berserk that she learns the truth: Her mother wasn’t human, and the Fae are willing to harm those Elena loves if she doesn’t use her power over the elements to cure them of a deadly disease.

Derek, Elena’s brooding neighbor, isn’t the friendliest guy, but he has access to an off-hours lab and is willing to help Elena create the antivirus. He has his own secrets to keep, and this business Elena is mixed up in could blow his cover. But when Elena and Derek get together, more than chemicals spark fire—and they soon discover just how complicated attraction can get when they find themselves on the other side of the portal, fighting for survival. Lives collide, and allegiance and love are tested, in Fates Divided.
