The setting – New Orleans, Pernambuco, Brazil, and the opal mines of Australia.
One year ago, Antiquities dealer Elektra Charpentier lost the rarest opal she’d ever almost owned, and the only man she’d ever loved. Now he’s back.
Aussie gem hunter Cass McKay spent the last year searching for Elektra’s Blood Opal and a way back into her life, and into her heart. Now he has it. And he doesn’t intend to lose her again, because without her, he’s U n d o n e
No one steals from Cass, especially not when it cost him the woman he loves. One year ago on the eve of Carnival, Elektra broke their engagement after the “Blood” opal was stolen from them. But Elektra’s reason for breaking their engagement has now come back to bite her. Cass intends to return to Brazil, putting himself in danger to retrieve her opal, in the hope that Elektra will give their relationship another chance. Staying out of Cass’ bed isn’t an option if she’s going to keep him safe, but coming clean might make things worse. Elektra is walking a tightrope between desire and deceit, and the truth will endanger not only their love, but their lives.
Welcome to Destiny, or should I say Middle Earth…
I’m Sheriff Jack Lang. After an exciting career as a Navy pilot, Destiny seemed like the perfect place to settle down – safe, sane and secure. But that ship sailed when I met Tempest Pomeroy – sexy redheaded mail lady and trouble magnet. Tempe never fails to test the limits of my patience or the law. Every time I think it’s the last straw, up pops another haystack.
My name is Tempest Pomeroy, and my human job is delivering the mail. I’m also a Paramortal like my family, or I’m supposed to be. If I didn’t have a few little talents, I’d think I was adopted. To say I was having a bad day would be like saying Katrina dropped a little rain on New Orleans. My brother’s genie bottle is missing, my mother’s AWOL, and the sheriff and my ex-lover are squaring off like yard dogs staking a claim over a poodle. I am no one’s poodle. I’ve denied my heritage for most of my life but all this chaos is a sign of my quickening Tempestaerie power.
Oh, and the sheriff? He thinks he’s settled in a normal, quaint small town—like Mayberry?! We’ll see how that turns out… Things better settle down soon, ‘cause I’m about to go…Storm Crazy.
***Storm Crazy is book 1 in the Paramortals world of tempestaeries (storm witches), dragons, shifters vampires and fae.*** Book five, Take These Broken Wings (October 2, 2016) completes Tempe and Jack’s um…series of epiphanies, .
Jack Lang is up to his ‘six’ in alligators.
Who is he kidding? Alligators he could handle! Ragtag doesn’t begin to describe his band of heroes. With Tempe and the other Paramortals ill or incapacitated and the sudden appearance of creatures he’s never heard of before, will Jack be able to keep Destiny out of the hands of their enemies for the rest of the power down?
The Paramortals call it Para-moon, when the lunar moon and Cache´ coincide. It’s like flipping the breaker on the leylines that run across the west end of Storm Lake. For twenty-four hours most of the Paramortals have lost their ability to follow through with their mission as defenders, relying on their human brothers and others outside of the Para realm to protect them. It has to stop here or Jack and Tempe won’t have that future he’d just begun to want in the worst way.
Luckily, he has a dragon on his side and a few surprises up his sleeve. “Yippee, ki, yi!” …But a lot can happen in twenty-four hours…
Shocks and secrets abound as Jack and his frends defend Destiny during the Chaos.
Welcome to Destiny, is it Mayberry or Middle Earth?
I’m Tempe Pomeroy, a Paramortal like my family. But if I didn’t have a few little talents, I’d think I was adopted. To say I was having a bad day would be like saying Katrina dropped a little rain on New Orleans. I turned to a human, Sheriff Jack Lang, a hunky ex-Navy pilot who believes he moved to a normal small town – like Mayberry – to raise his teenage daughter. Not. Once he gets wind of my true nature he’ll probably take the first jet out of Middle Earth.
Being the sheriff of a small quaint town like Destiny should have been a dream. Not. When my trouble magnet of a girlfriend turned out to be a storm witch with a djinni for a father and a group of supernaturals—vampires, dragons, witches and fae—for friends, I wasn’t sure I could stay. I had a teenage daughter to consider. I mistakenly thought that was the last straw, but apparently there was another haystack.
Welcome to Destiny — is it Mayberry or Middle Earth?
A series of strange events in Destiny have Tempest Pomeroy reeling. Between her Djinn brother missing, the body she discovered in the clubhouse, and her quickening Tempestaerie powers approaching, not to mention all the Alphas in her world going crazy, well… to say she’s having a bad week would be like saying Katrina dropped a little rain on the Gulf Coast.
Tempe is a mail carrier and a Paramortal like her family, but until now – with only a few measly talents – she thought she might be adopted.
There’s an immediate attraction between her and Destiny’s hunky new sheriff, ex-Navy pilot Jack Lang, who’s investigating the odd occurrences, but it won’t last. All the men in Tempe’s life leave eventually.
Oh, and the sheriff? He thinks he’s settled in a normal small town to raise his teenage daughter—like Mayberry?! We’ll see how that turns out… As the Para-moon approaches and more non-humans arrive in Destiny, will Jack stick around, or take the next jet out of Middle Earth?
The BEST BUY! this box set includes books 1-3 in the Destiny Paramortals: Storm Crazy, Cry Me a River, and Eve of Chaos
What readers are saying, “This is my new favorite series.” “Can’t wait for the next one!” “Run don’t walk to the buy button” “Wow…just Wow! Give me some more!” “Tempest Pomeroy is one of the best paranormal heroines I’ve read.”
Is he a real hero, or just a pretender?
The tall, dark and deadly looking mercenary Delilah Burke confronts at the robbery scene is sexy as sin, and apparently “saved the day”, but is anything about him real?
Ex-Navy officer Luc Larue knows how it looks when the sexy cop and her partner respond to a silent alarm at the grocery where he stopped for a six-pack after work. Luc’s job with KPI requires certain…attire, and equipment.
Once she finds out what he does for a living, and that he’s not a real hero, she probably won’t agree to see him again, much less hear his proposition.
Each day reveals more to Del of the enigma that is Luc Larue. The guy is golden, perhaps too good to be true. Then, trouble arrives from out of his past and Del is faced with a choice – does she believe the evidence against Luc, or trust her heart?
He’s “the one” and everyone knows it but him.
Billionaire ex-soldier and CEO, Ridge Romano’s mission is to improve the lives of wounded veterans. With the big vote on his veterans bill coming up before Congress soon, how had he ended up on stage between two cover models with a hundred women shouting, “Take it off, Tucker!”? That’s the question his family and friends would be asking tomorrow. That, and “Who’s Tucker?” If he could only slip away without repercussions.
Buffy Calloway’s face and body were recognizable worldwide but the ‘face’ she’s looking for is the face of her franchise. Interviewing cover models at the D.C. conference, she finds ‘her man’. Tucker – the late arrival – has the ‘je ne sais quoi’ that will make her talent agency and photography studio an immediate success.
The Calloways have always known what they wanted and Buffy knows he’s ‘the one’. There’s just one problem. Ridge laughs at the notion of himself as a cover model. He has more important priorities. Who is Buffy to argue with such a noble cause, but she’s determined to show Ridge he’s underestimated the influence of a vast romance community.
Could this be the first time a Calloway was wrong?
You’ve killed him, Bad Brenna taunted. Brenna looked down the steps at the man lying motionless in the tropical downpour. I told you that silly phobia would get you in trouble if you didn’t get a grip.
Brenna knew she was right, knew it was exactly why Bad Brenna existed, to help her cope with the trauma that had turned her into a scared rabbit whenever lightning was in the forecast. But her anxiety over the approaching storm had been magnified by yet another premonition. Typically, it meant someone was about to die. Had she been the means, this time, of fulfilling her own prophecy? As usual there were no clear answers. She needed to start trusting her sixth sense if she was ever going to get rid of Bad Brenna.
What happened? He’d been dodging the lightning, fighting the wind and rain, looking for a place to hide…when he’d seen the faint glow in the distance. There was no answer at the door so he’d broken in, entered… and there she was, a beautiful Valkyrie. Wielding her sword, she screamed as she struck him—for no good reason—and then everything went black. Everything.

Del needs to set a wedding date, but though bad guys don’t scare Officer Del Burke, Luc’s mother and five sisters do. She really wants to marry Luc; they just want to know when.
The Larue social media is all a twitter at the return of their hometown movie idol, Ducane Beauregard Larue and a visit by Raptors quarterback, Gino Manelli, at the only place to celebrate Christmas eve, the Romanos’.
This Christmas nothing could make Buffy happier than delivering a few surprises and helping the people she loves find love. Then, a Christmas eve miracle confirms what she already knows – that with a little nudge, all her love ones’ happily ever afters will happen in the not so distant future.
