New Release: StarCrossed 3: Objects in the Mirror


 
Now on sale at Torquere Press.

StarCrossed 3: Objects in the Mirror takes us back to the town of Salem, Massachusetts, famous for the witch trials of 1692. In the wake of that tragic time, the town has done everything in its power to be charitable toward its more unique residents. Tarot readers, a nightclub with a twist, and little shops dedicated to magic and New Age arts line the downtown streets. One of every four Salem residents claims either to be a witch or to know one.

What newcomers don't realize, however, is that witches are hardly the only usual people who might be living next door.

Jace and Konnor Barton are demon twins enjoying a much-improved life after narrowly escaping a very rough start. Given a second chance, they live in the protective care of their adoptive father, vampire Gennady Zaitsev. Trouble starts when local clergy are brutally murdered, and the Salem Special Council—of which Gennady is the president—is asked to rein in a potentially dangerous citizen.

Twenty years should have been enough to leave their past behind them, but it has come charging after the Barton twins with an unholy vengeance. When one brother falls under suspicion for the clergy murders, it shatters the heart of the other. Only an unlikely alliance of angels, vampires, were-creatures, and humans can help the brothers and keep the secret of supernatural beings living in Salem safe from the outside world.

The clock is ticking.

New Release: Messiah 1: Three of Cups

Messiah I: The Three of Cups


Now on sale at Torquere Press.

In the year 2039, the world is a better place, thanks to one man. Fresh from college, Malcolm Wilder engineered a cheap fix to fossil fuel dependence. The new energy-for-all economy brought on world peace, and as Earth and its people began to heal, creatures once thought to be the stuff of myth decided it was finally safe to reveal themselves. A decade later, Malcolm is a corporate giant living in exotic Dubai.

He's on the cover of every magazine and his name on everyone's lips. Malcolm's business partner and lifelong friend, Levi Tanner, is concerned that Malcolm isn't allowing himself to enjoy his fame and fortune. Levi finally takes Malcolm to Mortal Sins, a local hot spot that caters to those looking for something a little different in the way of adult recreation. Little does Malcolm know, but the world still has a few problems of Biblical proportion and all hell is about to break loose.

Authors' Note: Dark, futuristic urban fantasy. Discretion is advised for those sensitive to religious themes.
