God of the Dark

Book 1 of the Of The Dark series.

Out 11 October 2018
Available in trade paperback 25 Oct 2018

What do you do when the Dark God proposes marriage? Say no, of course!

Adrastea, a simple country healer, is surprised to receive a marriage proposal from the Dark God Mor-Lath. As a devotee of a rival god, of course she turns him down. She was raised on chilling tales of this Chthonic being who drags the souls of the unrepentant to Dom-al-gol. Adrastea loves her simple country life of brewing medicines and saving lives. Marriage to Mor-Lath would greatly complicate things. Besides, why would the Dark God propose to her?

Undaunted by her refusal, Mor-Lath insists on courting her. Sometimes he is charming, winning over the other villagers, but other times, she sees him for the dark god he truly is. He refuses to let anyone stand in his way. While he makes it clear he'll only have her willingly, he's making it very difficult for her to say no. She wonders, what is he really after?

Adrastea faces a quandary: if she accepts the Dark God's marriage proposal, she'll lose her very soul. But if she rejects it, the world itself and everything in it might be at stake. Either way, the price is too high.

Bride of the Dark

Book 2 of the Of The Dark series.

Out 18 October 2018

Marriage to the Dark God isn't all it's cracked up to be.

To save everyone she knows and loves, Adrastea agreed to marry Mor-Lath, God of the Dark. But what does Mor-Lath get?

The mystery behind his reason for the marrage deepens as he introduces her to his priestesses, his library, and even the God of the Light. The only place he didn't introduce to her was his bed.

This baffles her. Without consummation, the marriage isn't complete in Adrastea's eyes, making her the bride, but not a wife.

Why did he marry her? An ancient prophecy provides both the reason and the reluctance of Mor-Lath when it comes to his bride, and that which he desires most could also be the one thing that destroys them both.

The Future: Leo and his co-worker Katerina have fallen in love. Secretly, of course, for office romance is illegal and all marriages are strictly regulated. There's only one exception: the Valentine Raffle. But to win at love, Leo and Katerina may need to cheat the system...

The White Feather

The White Feather

Crippled by a fear of firearms, James Cowper is rejected by the draft. The villagers mark him as a cowardly pariah and shame him cruelly, to the point of James attempting to take his own life. He is stopped by the appearance of the famously naked Stoweham Ghost who convinces him to live.

A hundred years ago a romantic rival cursed Georgia Palmerton, refting her spirit from her body. Since then, she's wandered as the incorporeal Stoweham Ghost. Unlike true death, Georgia could be restored back to life, if only she could find someone brave enough to lift the curse from her body.

Freeing Georgia from physical death is a simple matter. Freeing James from social death is altogether more challenging, especially when he is asked to give up everything he's ever known.

Can courage win over cowardice?
