Burned by Magic

The Baine Chronicles Series, Book 1

“If you’re into snarky heroines, murder mysteries, kickass fight scenes, wild new worlds, and a dash of romance–Sunaya is your girl!” – Angela Roquet, USA TODAY bestselling author of the LANA HARVEY, REAPERS INC. Series.

In the city of Solantha, mages rule absolute, with shifters considered second-class citizens and humans something in between. No one outside the mage families are allowed to have magic, and anyone born with it must agree to have it stripped from them to avoid execution.

Sunaya Baine, a shifter-mage hybrid, has managed to keep her unruly magic under wraps for the last twenty-four years. But while chasing down a shifter-hunting serial killer, she loses control of her magic in front of witnesses, drawing the attention of the dangerous and enigmatic Chief Mage.

Locked up in the Chief Mage’s castle and reduced to little more than a lab rat, Sunaya resists his attempts to analyze and control her at every turn. But she soon realizes that to regain her freedom and catch the killer, she must overcome her hatred of mages and win the most powerful mage in the city to her side.

The Baine Chronicles Series, Book 2

With the silver murders solved and her training as a mage underway, Sunaya figured her life would get easier. But between the Chief Mage’s packed schedule and the grunt work demanded of her as an apprentice mage, magic lessons are few and far between. Worse, her apprenticeship leaves little time for her job as an Enforcer, and without bounties Sunaya’s money pouch is drying up – fast.

Even so, when Shiftertown Inspector Boon Lakin asks for Sunaya’s help digging deeper into the murder of a fellow Enforcer, Sunaya has no trouble making room in her life to help him. The trail leads them to a series of crimes victimizing shifters for the entertainment of vicious humans. Sunaya and her friends race to identify the perpetrators and free the survivors, and the stakes are heightened when she discovers one of the victims has a connection to her. But if Sunaya is not careful, she may end up a very dead shifter herself.

Ridden with guilt, Sunaya defies the Mages Guild and goes off in search of Iannis, trekking into dangerous, uncivilized territory to try and make things right. But Sunaya’s relationship with Iannis isn’t the only thing at stake – if she doesn’t find him soon, the Resistance might just succeed in plunging the Northia Federation into a devastating and bloody civil war.

Fugitive by Magic

The Baine Chronicles: Book 8

Fenris is no stranger to picking up the pieces of his life and starting over. Three years ago, he was forced to flee his life as Chief Mage of Nebara, and undergo a magical procedure that changed him into a shifter and forever altered the course of his future.

But even though adjusting to life as a shifter was hard, Fenris had friends in Solantha. This time, to save his friends from being caught up in his own troubles, he’s fled to Abbsville, a small human town with less than one-thousand people. And not a single ally to rely on.

Or so he thinks.

Not long after he arrives in town, Fenris finds himself entangled with Mina—a beautiful veterinarian with a heart of gold, and secrets lurking behind her gentle smile. Fenris knows he should stay away, but he has never been able to turn away when an innocent is in trouble. And it doesn’t take him very long to realize that Mina is in a whole world of it.

If Fenris and Mina want to keep their secrets intact, they are going to have to learn to trust each other. But trust is a hard thing to give, especially when you’ve spent your entire life running…

IMPORTANT NOTE: This book follows SCORCHED BY MAGIC, Book 7 in the Baine Chronicles series. While you are not required to have read the previous books in the series to enjoy this one, it is highly recommended that you do. Unlike the other books in the Baine Chronicles series, which are written from Sunaya’s POV, this book is written in dual first person POV– in other words, from the viewpoints of both Fenris and Mina. Sunaya’s books contains foul language, violence, and some adult situations, whereas Fenris’s has tamer language and more romance.

Even with Fenris at her side to advise and protect her, wresting Mina’s family fortune back from greedy relatives proves more difficult than expected. Someone is determined to deny Mina’s rights, at any cost. And when Fenris meets an unexpected enemy from his past, things go from difficult to downright dangerous…

Saved by Magic

Forsaken by Magic

A Baine Chronicles Novella

A novella exploring the origins of Fenris, one of the most beloved characters from the Baine Chronicles.

Lord Polar ar’Tollis has everything he wants. Wealth, power, respect, beautiful women eager to marry him—there is very little the Chief Mage of Nebara lacks in his life.

Except, perhaps, compassion.

Mages are taught from an early age to rein in their emotions, that they are superior to humans and shifters, and that they must rule with a firm, unyielding hand. But when an execution order for a little girl crosses Lord Polar’s desk, his entire world view is called into question. Especially when he realizes the depth of corruption within his own office.

Saving the life of an innocent child should not be a hard choice. But if Polar helps her, his own life will be at risk. And with enemies lurking in the shadows, waiting for him to fall, he cannot afford a single misstep…

Enforcer Annia Melcott is no stranger to adversity. A damned good investigator and a loyal friend, she’s fought rebels and terrorists, taken down dangerous criminal gangs, and risked herself time and again for the sake of her city.

But when Annia’s life goes up in smoke, she decides she’s had enough. Hoping to lose herself in an adventure or two, she travels to the Southern continent for a much-needed respite.

The first mission she snags is simple enough–escort two mage children and their guardian back to their ancestral home, and make sure they don’t get killed or kidnapped by bandits. But while Southia’s verdant lands are beautiful and compelling, they are also rife with ancient, wild magic that the world has forgotten. Evil shamans, powerful goddesses, and vengeful ghosts lurk in unexpected places, and if Annia isn’t careful, she might very well become their next victim…

NOTE: This is a backstory novella that takes place concurrent to the events in Taken by Magic. It is also a prequel to Tempted by Magic, Book One in the brand-new Mischief and Magic series, coming Spring 2020!
