Welcome to a new series of book recommendation posts!
I’ve been meaning to do short recs like this for a long time now, but never actually gotten around to organizing myself enough to pull it off. I wish I could devote more time to book blogging, but my writing schedule doesn’t really permit that at the moment, so I asked myself, what can I do?
The first thing that came to mind was reviewing titles I read and loved on Bookbub as soon as I wrapped them up (you can check those out here, and make sure to follow me if you want to receive them in your inbox). Still, I guess that part of me that loves being engaged in the reader side of the community wanted more. I mean, who doesn’t love stumbling upon a recommendation or two? I know I picked up a lot of excellent books that way I wouldn’t have otherwise found.
That’s where this little trial comes in. The books will be broken down by sub(genre), just a bunch of no-frill recommendations, and maybe, sometime in the future, I’ll be able to expand them into more elaborate posts.
It’s been three years since I first started plotting a series about a bisexual werewolf tennis player, and now Lotte’s story reaches its explosive conclusion in BURNING MOON! I hope you’ll enjoy one last ride with our badass wolf!

Stalling tactics were old news in any kind of battle, and the ones wagered on the tennis court were no different. Of course, when one was losing as blatantly and hopelessly as Ostwald Kleinfield, calling for a break under the pretenses of getting a nasty leg cramp was just crass.
Especially when the game in question was the godsdamned final of the Munich Games and the werewolf’s opponent was none other than Richard Ackmann, the uncontested winner of the last four supernatural grand slams.
It was a sad sight—one made even more pathetic as two medics with bags in their hands hurried onto the court and made a beeline for Kleinfield’s shaded bench. I snorted. Yes, a tennis match most definitely came with the peril of cramps, which were lethal to werewolves.
BURNING MOON is the page-turning finale to the suspenseful urban fantasy series where supernatural forces clash in a cloak-and-dagger war!
What doesn’t kill you leaves a demon fighting by your side
Boran has always hated demons with a passion. Now, he just might have to save one of the fucker’s lives.
Because in a world of unstable magic, a human can to do little to fight the supernatural forces. Especially when those damn forces are bent on controlling the ley lines and wreck havoc upon Boran’s town.

Destiny Reclamed is one of the stories set at the very beginning of the “Future” portion of the Kolovrat Universe, filled with action, demons, and magic!
I wrote this novella for an urban fantasy anthology a while ago, and it’s been sitting on my computer for an embarrassingly long time, waiting for me to send it out into the world again. I’m happy to say that elusive time finally came!
You can now read Destiny Reclaimed for free (no newsletter sign-up or anything like that required) by downloading it from one of the following links:
Chilly autumn air bit into my fingers as I huddled in the shadow-doused alley, scrolling through the numerous pockets of the dark web.
Maybe not the best way to spend my time given who Lena was meeting. The Interspecies Crimes and Relations Agency would throw my ass in a warded cell if they knew what I was up to. But thanks to Simon’s literal magic fingers, my activities were basically untraceable. Tapping in a quick command, I opened a different branch of correspondences, then sorted them from latest to oldest. All the shady dealings there for the taking.
Yeah, having a genius warlock on the retainer definitely gave a person a leg up in life—and a hole in their bank account. Though the latter was mostly my fault since I refused to let Simon undersell himself just because we were friends.
Not very demonic of me, true, but seeing as I wasn’t entirely a demon…
I huffed, my breath condensing in the frigid alley. Damn, September had laid it on thick with the end-of-summer stint. Something my rapidly draining cell phone battery confirmed. Lovely.
SHADOW HEART is the third novel in the suspenseful urban fantasy series with kickass assassins, sinfully hot demons, eye-candy vampires, and a steamy polyamorous romance you won’t want to miss!
My mind strained to separate illusion from reality.
Wildfire curved around me and danced beneath what little of the false night sky I could see beyond the smoke. I cast a look over my shoulder. The woods gave way to pastures, unrecognizable figures shuffling in the distance. False, false, false.
The thunderous echo of footsteps crashing against my right ear, too.
I flexed my fingers by my sides and ignored the dizziness that had ratcheted up again as I pushed my focus to its limits. Even the feel of hard ground—not soil—beneath my feet did little to steady me. Shit. The entire damn situation was almost like experiencing some sort of odd double vision—if you could even call it that when it was only the scents that didn’t align with the imagery or sound and painted a different landscape.
Though I probably should have been grateful I at least had that tiny bit of advantage given the sheer strength of the Leshy who kept evading me with infuriating ease.
PHANTOM MOON is the fourth book in the suspenseful urban fantasy series set in the Kolovrat Universe where myth meets reality!
I observed the holo projected from my vambraces marking the movements of the numerous red dots scurrying about like ants and attempted to figure out a pattern. The interstellar merchant ship I’d snuck onto for the trip through the wormhole was large, filled to the brim with cargo they were hurrying to unload—excellent cover for a stowaway, but also crammed as fuck. It didn’t help that it was taking them ages to move the merch.
A cramp clutched my leg from crouching in the exact same spot for the past two hours.
I breathed past the pain, then slunk through the shadows closer to the exits. Voices swirled in the distance, and I shut the holo down, not wanting to attract any attention with its faint light. When the five men working this sector moved deeper into the hull, I knew I wouldn’t get a better opportunity than this.
Taran’s heavy air hit my lungs as I crossed into the open. Damn, I’d almost forgotten what it was like. But as much as it strained my breaths, I also couldn’t deny that it tasted just a bit like freedom.
NOVA is the action-packed, epic conclusion to the SCAR Force: Delta Faction serial
