Got Trouble?

Cary Redmond sure does. This time with a particularly sexy leopard shifter who seems to think she’s his mate, a faery mentor who’s suddenly made himself scarce, and an ancient demon searching for a mysterious, mystical source of power in the forest outside of town. Throw in a vulnerable kid for her to keep safe and it’s just another day in the life of Portland’s resident Protector—save the innocent, manage her private life, keep all hell from breaking loose, and try not to die.

Easy, right?

Oh boy.

Trouble Takes a Holiday…

Though for Cary Redmond, meeting her shifter boyfriend’s mother for the first time doesn’t feel much like a vacation. Dealing with Deacon’s gorgeous ex-girlfriend, his complicated family, the truth about who he really is, her faery mentor’s emotional declarations, and the troublesome conflict escalating between the leopards and the cougars just adds spice to an already interesting month.

Cary’s used to surviving in the midst of chaos and impending preternatural wars. The real trick will be surviving Deacon’s protective mother who just happens to be the Queen of the Leopards.

Life in Cary’s seventh year as a Protector just keeps getting more interesting.

And more deadly.

Trouble Throws a Curve…

And not one Cary Redmond sees coming. In the early months of her seventh year as a magical Protector, discovering the Portland vampires behaving badly complicates Cary’s already complicated life. Learning the Master of Portland not only knows who she is but wants to meet her doesn’t help even a little bit.

With a wizard still skulking in the wings waiting to kill her and her latest Protector job tossing her into the middle of yet another crisis, the last thing Cary needs is vampire trouble. Even her developing relationship with her leopard shifter mate isn’t enough to distract from the shocks that just keep coming. And surviving her test year starts to look more and more impossible.

But she’s managed so far, she can get through this latest disaster. No problem for an ordinary woman with an extraordinary job…

If only life were that simple.

Trouble’s in the Curses…

Halfway through her test year as a magical Protector, Cary Redmond is starting to think she just might survive. With her leopard shifter mate at her side, she’s even managed to enjoy parts of the journey.

Then her latest job reveals trouble brewing in Faery. Trouble that could affect all the realms and seriously complicate her test year. The path of danger points to the English Faery court—and her former mentor, Jaxer. She wants to help her friend, even though their current relationship can best be described as complicated. But stepping into a realm made entirely of magic, when she’s just discovered she can absorb magic, seems like a bad idea. Especially since she hasn’t learned how to release that magic yet.

With a world-ending threat looming, even Cary’s bosses want her to go. And she won’t be going alone. Both her mate and her mentor will be at her back. But to save the world this time, Cary has to confront her greatest fears. And the knowledge that if she fails…

Her own realm will fall.

Trouble with a Vengeance…

In her seventh year as a magical Protector, Cary Redmond has faced down more world-ending, life-or-death situations than she cares to remember. And now that she’s discovered she’s not as ordinary as she thought, finding ways to not die is getting even tougher. Especially with all the enemies she’s collected while saving good guys from bad guys.

So when her latest job forces her to confront too many of these old enemies, Cary desperately wants to refuse. Unfortunately, walking away is not an option, thanks to more of that world-ending trouble so common in her life.

With the help of her leopard shifter mate, Cary once again faces overwhelming odds in a quest to save the world.

And hopefully not die.

See how it all began. When Cary Met Jaxer.

When Cary met Jaxer, her life changed forever. Not that she wasn’t already looking for a change. But still. Rethinking her career goals is one thing. Finding out the world is a lot spookier than she knew, quite another.

Cary never intends to jump head first into that strange, new world. But for a soft hearted animal lover, there are just some things she can’t allow. And seeing a poor little Labrador puppy taking abuse from a huge man pushes her beyond her tolerance…right into one of the scariest moments of her life.

And the beginnings of a new adventure she may not survive.

A new job, a new house, a new demon dog… And so much to learn.

Cary Redmond has a lot of study ahead of her if she wants to survive her new job as a magical Protector. Study means books. And books mean spending time in a bookstore—something she will never object to. However, the place her mentor sends her isn’t an ordinary bookstore. And the clientele are more than what they seem.

But with the help of The Bookstore’s proprietor and the resident basset hound, Cary is sure she can navigate this new world without getting eaten by anything.

After losing her keys—again—she seeks the help of a friend from her pre-Protector life.

But there is more to Marianne than meets the eye. And in this new world of magic and mayhem, Cary is learning everybody really does want to rule the world.

In Cary Redmond’s life as a Protector, magic does not always cause the mayhem…

Running into the darkness under a bridge is not the sort of thing an ordinary woman should do late at night. But for Cary Redmond, it’s just part of her job as a magical Protector. And frankly, after the not-so-fun dinner with her parents, charging into danger to rescue the innocent seems like a good idea. Almost as good as the donut she was going to have before her Protector senses went off.

What she discovers in those midnight shadows, however, changes her perspective completely on women running into the darkness under a bridge. And sets the stage for a brand new friendship.

Introduce magic into that equation, however, and Cary knows she’s out of her league. A magic problem needs a magic solution. And while the super powerful witch who comes to her aid isn’t exactly what Cary expects, she’ll take all the help she can get. She might even survive the night, with a little help from her newest friend.

Going on an ordinary date should not be this tough…

Despite knowing each other for two months, and surviving more than one dangerous adventure together, Cary Redmond and her leopard shifter mate have never managed a regular date. A first date.
An event which carries a significance that unnerves Cary. How can she be this worried about going to a movie with a man she’s fought demons with? And seen naked.
But of course, for Portland’s resident Protector, even the simple things in life prove complicated. And when someone needs her help, Cary doesn’t dare avoid her job…even on a date.

Third time’s the charm. Right?

For Cary Redmond, Portland’s resident magical Protector, going on a simple date with her leopard shifter mate is proving almost impossible. Really, she just wants to get through dinner. After two failed attempts, Cary and Deacon are determined to make this date work.

Protectors don’t get nights off…

Girls’ night means different things to different groups of friends. For Cary Redmond and her three closest friends, it means staying in and watching a classic 80s film while eating Mexican food and drinking margaritas. The perfect evening, with the perfect company…

Until an unexpected guest crashes the party. Literally.

In the ensuing wreckage, Cary discovers her night off has just become a work night. Since she’s a magical Protector, she’s used to diving in to keep the good guys safe from the bad guys. But this time, it’s her dearest friends in danger.

And no one, not even the Goblin King, messes with Cary’s friends.

A family dinner with leopard shifters…what could go wrong?

Cary Redmond’s first introduction to her leopard shifter boyfriend’s family proved a little more interesting and fraught than she might have liked. Okay, the trip was a disaster. So Deacon’s mother declares a do-over. And no one argues with the Jones family matriarch. They even agree to come up to Portland, into Cary’s territory, for the big meal.

What could possibly go wrong?

Unfortunately, in Cary’s world, anything that can, usually does. And when her bosses show up with a job, she can’t refuse. Magical Protectors don’t get time off for family events…

Not when there are innocent people to protect and monsters on the loose.

Who knew pumpkins could do that?

Cary Redmond encounters a lot of unusual things in her life as a magical Protector. A cursed Jack-O’-Lantern, however, is new. But since the creepy pumpkin is in her best friend’s place of business, Cary is quick to help.

The only problem is she has no idea how to stop a curse. Or a pumpkin. Or, really anything. Getting between bad guys and good guys…she does that all day long. Stopping a deadly pumpkin come to life…not so much.

But Cary is up for the challenge. At least, she hopes so.

Because if she’s not, it could cost her her best friend’s life.

When her best friend’s mysterious past comes calling…

Although powerful witch, Angie Jordan, is one of Cary’s closest friends, there are parts of Angie’s past she refuses to talk about. Things she’s hinted at but always avoids explaining. Demon related things. And while Cary is very curious about that past, she also respects her friend’s privacy. After all, everyone should be allowed their secrets.

But when someone out of Angie’s past comes to town and threatens her family, Cary doesn’t hesitate to throw herself between this threat and her friend. She might not understand the undertone, but she can keep Angie and her family from getting hurt. After all, it’s her job as a magical Protector.

And what good is being a magical Protector if you can’t stand between your friends and disaster?

All vacations are not created equal…

And as far as magical Protector Cary Redmond is concerned, going to Hawaii with her best friends ranks at the top of the list. No work, no magical Protector business, no jumping between good guys and bad guys to keep good guys safe. For two whole weeks. She gets to enjoy sun, sea, and tropical breezes without any paranormal chaos. Couldn’t get any better than that.

Except Cary’s life bends toward chaos, no matter what she tries. And when paranormal danger rears its head, Cary has to answer the call. Even if it means facing one of her greatest fears.

Because her best friend’s future is on the line.

Angela Jordan is a witch with a very particular set of skills. One of those skills has her embroiled in the demon hunter world. Not her calling. But the hunt still lures her in. Confronting the kinds of nightmares most humans never have to face, Angie accepts the work though she wouldn’t go so far as to say she enjoys it.

The demons call and magic answers…

When hunting demons nearly kills her, witch Angie Jordan runs away to New York City, takes a job reading fortunes, and spends two years trying to forget her past. She was born to be a witch, not a demon hunter. Escaping that world means giving up the love of her life, a man who could no more resist the hunt than she could refuse the call of magic. That sacrifice is one of the hardest things she’s ever done. But staying with Sebastian means living in a world that will eventually destroy everything she loves. And she doesn’t dare take that risk.

The demon realms are restless and persistent, though, almost as persistent as Sebastian, dragging her back to the hunt. This time, a young girl is in danger, and Angie can’t refuse to help. But in her quest to rescue the innocent, dark secrets emerge, threatening everything Angie has built, plunging her into a deadly battle that pits the will of a demon against her magic.

Deception isn’t only for demons… 

Faced with returning to the world of demon hunters or fighting an all-out war with them, powerful witch Angie Jordan feels boxed into a corner of lies and deceit. The demon world terrifies her. And if not for the one little trait that allows her to open portals into demon realms, her pursuit of witchcraft would be unquestioned.

Surrounded by people she can’t trust, the only good thing about the whole mess is having Sebastian, the love of her life, by her side again. But their relationship is still best categorized as complicated. And Sebastian has plans of his own. Plans that could upend everything and endanger the entire world.

Enemies on every side force Angie to do things she thought impossible. To survive, she must discover the real extent of her powers. And decide just how far she’s willing to go to save her world and the man she loves.

Because if she can’t conquer her own demons, the real demons will win.

But after trouble last Halloween broke open new powers for Angie, controlling her growing magic proves too challenging to do alone. Her only hope at mastering the demon witch magic before it overwhelms her…help from her first mentor and teacher.

And that means a trip home to New Mexico.

Getting the kraken away from human habitation proves challenging. And when Joan spots a grounded fishing boat, which the kraken refuses to release, Joan fears the creature has already claimed its first victim.

Facing a kraken, without getting killed, tests even an experienced hero and her dragon. But that’s the job. A job Joan was born to do.

Just her. Her sword. And her dragon.

A Joan of Kerry Novella

No one visits a dragon’s island uninvited…

And since the satchel holds a carefully folded selkie skin, that something promises to be bad. Selkies never leave their skins unattended. Not on purpose.

Joan and Rory set out to uncover the secret of the abandoned selkie skin, a quest that brings them face to face with more of the mythical seal people. And a tragedy that has cost lives.

To save the day, Joan and Rory will have to face the dangers of the ocean deep.

And they might just have to burn.
