The Prophecy

By- Lucy Varna

Genre- Fantasy/ Romance /Romantic Suspense



Maya Bellegarde has spent her entire life searching for a way to break the curse hanging over her and her People. As part of her quest, she volunteers to investigate an anomalous burial at a Swedish archaeological dig where a rare cache of documents has been discovered side by side with an ancient symbol linked to the Seven Sisters, the progenitors of the People.



While in Sweden, Maya meets James Terhune, an attractive archaic language expert, and invites him to take on a position at the Institute for Early Cultural Studies, the People's main historical research branch. James is thrilled by the opportunity Maya extends and intrigued by the attraction he feels for her. He soon begins to suspect, however, that the secrets of the grave are minor compared to the secrets Maya holds, secrets that could hamper their burgeoning relationship and cripple the work they've undertaken for the IECS.

The People aren't the only ones interested in the newly-discovered documents. An ancient enemy of the People resurfaces, threatening the lives of Maya and James' loved ones, and setting in motion a chain of events that could save the People, or destroy them.

There, she teams up with Dave Winstead, an FBI agent working undercover with the People's most ancient and deadly enemy.

Tempered

Daughters of the People #3.5

By- Lucy Varna

Genre- Fantasy/ Romance /Romantic Suspense



Among the People, Hawthorne the Chronicler is well-known for two things: Her faithful rendition of their history and her inclination to behead those who betray her. To mortals, Hawthorne is better known as Al C. Hawthorne, a fantasy writer with a stellar imagination and a knack for complex stories. It is in this guise that she must track down the sources of comic book illustrator Aaron Kesselman's modernized tales of Rebecca the Blade.



Hawthorne's blunt words and lithe grace intrigue Aaron, enough for him to take her up on the offer of sharing her bed. Before he knows it, his heart begins the fall into love, a fall he's willing to take if only he can persuade Hawthorne that she isn't a two thousand year old immortal descended from one of the most ruthless warriors in British history.



The past isn't the only obstacle standing in the way of true love. The Eternal Order is on the move, targeting key members of the People in their never-ending quest to extinguish the Light. Hawthorne soon learns that a strong arm and a sharp blade aren't always the best weapons in a Daughter's arsenal, especially when her heart is involved.




 




In All Things, Balance

Daughters of the People # 4

By- Lucy Varna

Genre- Fantasy/ Romance /Romantic Suspense



The People are in a time of great need. The Prophecy of Light has been rediscovered, the Eternal Order constitutes a growing threat, and the IECS Archives may hold the key the People need to forever be free of An’s curse.



Moira the Reluctant, immortal Daughter of the renowned Rebecca Upton, journeys from her home in Ireland to assist with efforts to locate Sanctuary, the legendary refuge of the Seven Sisters. There, she meets Tom Fairfax, a reserved archivist tasked with organizing and modernizing the Archives. Tom is everything a Daughter could want in a future mate, handsome, intelligent, and kind. Above all, his touch arouses her in a way no other man’s ever has.



The moment Tom spied Moira, his heart tangled into a knot and hasn’t loosened since. The beautiful Daughter has a sharp tongue and a temper to match, and is not at all the kind of woman he dreamed of calling his own. In spite of the attraction he feels for her, Tom goes out of his way to avoid the fiery Daughter, determined to protect himself from certain heartbreak. Moira is equally determined to have him, regardless of his apparent infatuation with another Daughter.



When Moira’s brother is kidnapped, she and Tom are thrown together in a way neither anticipated, forcing them to trust one another or risk losing their budding love under the crushing weight of the Order’s never-ending quest for continued immortality.



 




Sanctuary

Daughters of the People # 5

By- Lucy Varna

Genre- Fantasy/ Romance /Romantic Suspense



Jerusha Mankiller has found herself in a lot of tight spots during her century and a half of living, but her current assignment takes the cake. Her mother, the formidable Blade, has sent her halfway around the world to investigate clues to the locations of Sanctuary and the City of the Sisters. The catch? Her cover is as the wife of her brother’s best friend, a former Delta Force Operator with a smart attitude and a wicked smile.  



Playing somebody’s husband isn’t a new cover for Drew Martin, but it’s the first time he’s partnered a woman he’s got the hots for. Unfortunately, Jerusha treats him like her kid brother, and when she’s not, she’s instituted a strictly hands-off policy. One kiss wouldn’t kill her, would it? And at least then he’d know if the wild attraction tugging at him affected her, too.



Tracking down decades-old leads isn’t exactly easy, though. Soon, Jerusha and Drew have their hands full countering the problems cropping up around every corner. Someone is tailing them, the Shadow Enemy turns up in the unlikeliest of places, and an ancient Daughter sets her cap for Drew, leaving him wondering what could possibly go wrong next.

Excerpt:

From Sanctuary-


Jerusha whirled around, another angry retort at the ready. Drew was standing right behind her, so close she nearly flinched back. How the hell had he gotten that close without her hearing him or at least without him setting off her internal alarms?


He wrapped his hands around her upper arms and yanked her close, and dropped his voice to a low murmur. “Helluva temper you got there, Jaybird.”


She curled her lips into a smirk. “Helluva crap argument, if you ask me. You couldn’t come up with a better scenario?”


“I was working on the fly. You got into it well enough.”


“What can I say? I like yelling at you.”


“Yeah, I figured.” He lowered his head and brushed his mouth across hers. “Mmm. You sure you’re ok with this?”


“It’s just a kiss, Drew, and besides. It’ll be more convincing.”


“Yeah.” His hands tightened on her arms and he inched her closer, molding their bodies together. “Hold on to your knickers, baby.”


She meant to snicker, meant to make light of his phrasing. His mouth came down on hers, claiming her in a gentle kiss, and her humor died as quickly as it had risen. His lips moved over hers, coaxing her into a response, and she gave it to him, opening her mouth, sweeping her tongue across his, tangling her fingers in his jacket and holding him as close as he held her. Heat swept through her in a blazing rush of light and flame, and she rose on her tiptoes, aligning their bodies together in a perfect melding of male and female.


He yanked back, his breath harsh, and stared at her, his cognac eyes hot. “Jaybird,” he whispered, and then his mouth was on her again, demanding and hard, his rough need a welcome relief. Oh, she’d missed this, missed kissing a man, missed feeding his need with her own, and Drew was so perfect, so good. He sucked her lower lip into his mouth, scraped his tongue across hers, and she moaned, melting into his solid strength.


Quiet footsteps came from behind her, and Jerusha nearly cursed. Right. They were reeling in their tail, trying to gain information. Making out was just a fringe bene, not the main event.
