Fight for Darkness

Kane’s raging beast thrives in the cage. Malin’s thirsts for revenge.

Technical knockouts are MMA fighter Kane MacLeod’s trademark move. His match tonight proved that point again, and now he’s strolling to the club to celebrate when a ruckus in a dark alley stops him in his tracks. The darkness obscures four fighters save for dark smoke and bright flashes. How the—wait . . . is that magic? No way! A small woman spins, crouches, and kicks faster than Kane can track. She’s holding her own, but he can’t leave her at the mercy of three large men. What if that was his sister?

Malin’s sole purpose: destroy the slime who killed her sister. Every night, she enters the Daylight Realm to hunt. She stalks among the humans unseen, searches, fights, then slips back into Darkness before dawn. Her coven begs her to accept her sacred duty, but she owes her sister. Malin carries the burden of Myla’s death, and until she slays Godric, everything else can wait.

Kane MacLeod’s life is in the cage. His one truth since he left high school in the eleventh grade, and he’s done well. Two more fights, and he’ll leave the cage—and Wickney—for good. But first, he just needs to see that his mother and sister are set for life.

Both fight for darkness, but how can they deny themselves when Darkness itself keeps throwing them together?

Praise for Fight for Darkness

"I couldn’t get enough of Malin’s and Kane’s story! It drew me in from the start and kept me enthralled. This is a tale of vengeance, magic, and love. It is a standalone but is part of a series. Spice is 3.5 🌶. Check trigger warnings always!"-- Goodreads Review

"I can't begin to express how much I loved this book. It is my favorite book of the year so far. I loved the characters so much. Kane is a professional fighter who is deeply scarred by this past. He has this rage inside him always clawing to get out. Malin is a dark witch who can only think of revenge until she meets him. I absolutely could not put this book down. It sucked me in from the start. I would recommend this book to anybody who loves fantasy romance. They even have cute little familiars."-- Goodreads Review

Hunger for Darkness

Monsters are real! But do they live in Darkness . . . or Light?

Kiera Macleod’s childhood fear of shadowy beasts has become reality. Falling for a dark witch was the last thing she could have imagined, but since her head injury, Conrí has been at her side. He’s the one who nursed her back to health. But the worst part of discovering real monsters is that they are her protectors . . . and she is one of them.
Kiera’s brother has joined the Dragan Garda
í and fights for Darkness alongside Conrí, the man she wants so badly it hurts. She faces a choice: a nursing career she’s worked hard to build or saving her mom with Conrí at her side. He wants more than she can give, and the gnawing in the pit of her stomach says he’s dangerous and she’ll lose herself. If she tries, will she go crazy like her mother?
Conrí has been part of the Dragan Gardaí for nearly two centuries, and his coven duties have always come first. Until Kiera. He couldn’t leave her side while she recovered, and now, she is becoming a healer in Darkness, a child of the Dark goddess herself. She accepted her fate to save her mother, but could she find a way to accept him too?
