PACK BOUND: Pack Bound Series Book 1
Five hundred years ago, facing extinction, a group of powerful witches united to create a pact with the Were to save Witch-kind. The pact expelled an ancient evil, known only as the Darkness, that blocked the Were from their wolves. With the Darkness destroyed, the Packs and Covens grew strong as they thrived beside each other in their brand-new world.
But the Darkness was not destroyed.
Skye Collins has been brought up to fear her magic and shy away from Witch and Were alike. But when Jason McVale, the Alpha of Pack McVale, comes in search of her, she is intrigued and tempted. Yet, the intensity of passion she shares with Jason threatens her control – and if she loses control, she just might turn into the weapon the Darkness intended her to become all along.
Can she trust this Were when he says his Pack will die without her? More importantly, can she trust her magic before the Darkness has its way?
If stories of wild magic, shifters, witches, fated mates and the struggle against evil are your nirvana, then the award nominated Pack Bound Series is for you.

SHIFTER BOUND: Pack Bound Series Book 3
Lone Wolf, Iain McShane, yearns to roam free, but how can he leave his Pack now with an enemy spy right in their midst? An enemy that might very well be his mate – an impossibility given Lone Wolves never mate. But whatever she is, Shifter-witch, Eloise O’Brien, is certainly a mystery he wants to solve. She might seem meek and lost, but he can sense power deep inside her, power that could tip the balance in their fight with the evil Darkness that’s threatening to tear his Pack apart.
Eloise has betrayed her Coven and almost killed her brother to save the Were Pack she once feared and hated. Now, learning the truth of who she really is – the prophesied Nexus, a witch of unspeakable power – she must make a choice between the light and the dark, between Iain, the Were she is coming to love, and her once beloved brother and Coven who are now working for the Darkness.
But how can she choose when either choice will lead to the destruction of someone she loves?

WOLF BOUND: Pack Bound Series Book 4
Trickster Were, Adam McVale is almost killed in his attempt to stop the evil warlock Cain from murdering his Pack – emphasis on the ‘almost’. He is transformed into a Shade, a creature caught between life and death. A horrible turn of events, sure, but at least he now gets to haunt the irresistible and ever prickly medium, Shelley Conners, who has made her dislike of him undeniably clear; pretty funny given he and his wolf are certain she is their mate.
Shelley hates and fears the inherited powers that connect her to the spirit world and the insanity they inevitable bring. But it seems she is the key to reuniting Adam’s body with his Shade and save him from certain death. Given she can hardly let the annoying Were die, she agrees to help, even though it will speed up her descent into madness.
But there is an even darker evil within her – the Darkness that has been hunting the Packs and Covens for centuries. Can she save Adam and stave off the Darkness before it uses her to destroy the world?
The eagerly anticipated final instalment of the McVale Pack and Coven’s fight against the Darkness is here! Lost souls, wild magic, shifters, fated mates, action, mystery and sexy romance make Wolf Bound an un-put-downable tour de force in paranormal romance.

SOUL BOUND: Dawn of the Curse Book 1 (A Pack Bound Prequel Series)
The Darkness is banished and a new era has begun for the Were and the Covens, bound together by the magical Pact that keeps them safe.
Spirit-talker Morghanna Cantrae doubts she’s strong enough to lead her Coven into their new life with Pack MacCrae, especially given she can’t even persuade her beloved yet stubborn sister, Morrigan, that the Pact is the only way forward. Then a mysterious traveller, Alistair Sinoir, arrives. With one glance, they are mated. But the mating is the least of the wonders he brings. He carries the proof that the Pact is right: he is both Were and Warlock, and he is the strongest of them all.
But before Morghanna can reveal this revelation to anyone, the Darkness they thought banished strikes in the most devastating of ways. To save the pack, her Coven and her mate, Morghanna is forced to face the truth of her own powers … even if it costs her what she thought never to have: her love.

Even worse, if she does not go to Rome, uncover a secret spell, and be in the exact spot the curse was bound by midnight on Valentine’s Day, her soul will continue to be cursed forever. Oh, and she has to do it all with her soul mate who was cursed to never reveal himself to her, too.
