With the aide of her two best friends, Eloise must forge alliances with other Fae, before both worlds are thrust into utter chaos.
Bad girls burn hot…
Red is the color of Kia Alcott's hair.
It's her temper, which blazes hot and always gets Kia into way too much trouble.
And it's the color of fire. Fires that Kia can start…just by thinking about them.
When her latest "episode" gets her kicked out of school, Kia is shipped off to her grandmother, who works for the wealthy Blackwoods. It's an estate shrouded in secrets, surrounded by rules, and presided over by a family that is far from normal…including the gorgeous and insolent Ethan Blackwood.
Ethan knows far more about the dangers of the forest surrounding the estate than Kia can ever imagine. For this forest has teeth, and Ethan is charged with protecting the outside world from its vicious mysteries.
But inside, even the most vibrant shade of red doesn't stand a chance against the dark secrets of the Blackwood family…
Dating isn’t easy when you’re in the middle of a blood feud.
Anastasia Vila’s family can turn into swans, but just once she’d like them to turn into responsible adults.
After hundreds of years, they still cling to the blood feud with the Renard family. No one remembers how it started in the first place—but foxes and swans just don’t get along.
Vilas can only transform into their swan shape after they have fallen in love for the first time, but between balancing schoolwork, family obligations, and the escalating blood feud, Ana’s got no time for love. The only thing keeping her sane is her best friend, Pierce Kent.
But when Pierce kisses Ana, everything changes.
Is what Pierce feels for her real, or a byproduct of her magic? Can she risk everything for her best friend? And when the family feud spirals out of control, Ana must stop the fight before it takes away everything she loves.
What do Saffron, a scavenger from the Core, and Jane, an Oracle at the Collegium have in common? The Directorate-and the dangerous magic of a Green Jack's leaf mask. A Green Jack's mask might help the crops grow in the dry months, but it also kills whoever wears it. And now Saffron has a choice: wear the mask or let a small piece of magic die.
Meanwhile, Jane's family secrets are catching up to her. Her mother offers her to the Directorate's new Program. Survival is by no means guaranteed. And although the Directorate controls both science and magic, but they can't control everything. Not anymore. But if science can't save them, and magic can't save them-how will Saffron and Jane save each other?
A Bluestocking, a betrothal of convenience, a traitor… and a handsome rake. What could go wrong?
Persephone Blackwell prefers digging in the dirt for old bones and secret treasure to anything Society might have to offer. When her godfather, the Duke of Pendleton, decides to host a Festival of Antiquaries, she jumps at the chance to take part-especially since it’s the best way to save her oldest friend, Henry Talbot, who is being framed for treason. She has not yet found the evidence that he has sent home hidden inside Egyptian forgeries---but she does find something else: Conall Hunter, the Earl of Northwyck.
The Conall she knew before the war was shy and serious, but this new Conall is a celebrated rake with a practiced charm and a dangerous grin. Persephone finds them both irresistible. Rumor has it, he is searching for a wife. Not that Percy is on the Marriage Mart. After all, earls do not marry ladies with scandalous pasts and a penchant for the mummification process of Ancient Egypt.
As it happens, Conall is secretly searching for a traitor, not a bride. But he is beginning to wonder if Persephone might fight both categories.
When Dougal is plucked from a millhouse as the last Duke of Thorncroft, he doesn't know the rules of Society. Meg does. She'll save him from the bullies and the treasure hunters.
Meg Swift has a tiny problem with stealing. What else is she to do when her uncle triples the estate rents? She learns how to mend roofs, plant turnips--and how to steal. She's too busy for her godfather's parade of single gentlemen at the Cinderella Ball.
Dougal Black has just been plucked from a millhouse as the last of the Thorncroft duchy bloodline. And if he's not married by the end of the year, the Prince of Wales will choose his bride for him. But Dougal doesn't know the rules of this new world. Luckily, Meg does.
They will have to contend with dozens of debutantes on house tours hoping for a glimpse of the single duke, and treasure hunters who will stop at nothing to get what they want from the historic Thorncroft Abbey.
Meg can't abide a bully. So she'll help Dougal. Even if she has to marry him to do it.
Lady Tamsin Bell, daughter of a duke, has everything a lady could want. She has a fine house in London, exquisite ball gowns, and a generous dowry.
But she doesn’t have Captain Henry Talbot.
When artifacts from her private collection start to go missing, Tamsin is on the hunt—and Henry has no choice but to go with her. Because he’s always been aware of Tamsin. When he was fighting war at sea, she was all that he could think of. But now that he’s back, he’s not good enough for her.
No matter how tempting she is.
But he’ll destroy anyone who threatens her happiness. She shines too brightly, and he’ll do whatever it takes to protect her shine.
From himself. From a thief who is willing to kill to protect his secret. And from his father. The earl is a bully and a tyrant, but he’s never dealt with a Cinderella before.
And a Cinderella always gets her man.
“Think you know the classic fairy tales of yore? You’re about to encounter some unexpectedly dark and intriguing passages revealed by Alyxandra Harvey, the bestselling author of Haunting Violet, Stolen Away and hugely popular The Drake Chronicles vampire novels. Briar Rose, a collection of superbly crafted epic poem-short stories, revisits familiar tales from antiquity to open up new mystical realms of strange, unsettling possibilities and surprises. One thing is for certain – you’ll never, ever look at classic fairy tales the same way again…” - Michael B Davie, author, Poetry for the Insane: The Full Mental
“Fairy tales didn’t begin as children’s stories. They were originally oral folktales thought to belong to the ‘peasant’ class, until the literary salons of the 17th Century adopted them as their own. They have been retold countless times and hundreds of years later they still resonate. They are a guide through the dark woods of life and a conversation with our mythic selves.
Take another look: The witch, the wolf and the wonder await.” – Alyxandra Harvey
Sometimes you have to break the rules to find your happily ever after.
The stern and proper Callum Winter, Duke of Montford, must marry. At least according to his mother.
Enter: The Duchess Games where ladies are invited to display their accomplishments in dancing, music and all social graces.
Caitriona Lovelace just wants to steal the duke's signet ring to get her smuggling operation running and save the village from ruin. Options are scarce for a thirty-one-year-old spinster, her two younger siblings, four dogs, a cranky goat, and a one-eyed fox.
She might not have any pretty accomplishments, but she can sing sea shanties and debone a haddock in minutes. But between pianofortes and watercolors, Caitriona is shocked to discover that Callum remembers her from that passionate summer long ago and she has never forgotten him.
Cat might not be duchess material---but she's the perfect woman to save Callum...and their happily ever after.
The only problem is that she has to betray him first.
On Solange's sixteenth birthday, she is going to wake up dead. As if that's not bad enough, she also has to outwit her seven overprotective older brothers, avoid the politics involved with being the only daughter born to an ancient vampire dynasty, and elude Kieran Black-agent of an anti-vampire league who is searching for his father's killer and is intent on staking Solange and her entire family.
Luckily she has her own secret weapon-her human best friend Lucy-who is willing to defend Solange's right to a normal life, whether she's being smothered by her well-intentioned brothers or abducted by a power-hungry queen. Two unlikely alliances are formed in a race to save Solange's eternal life-Lucy and Solange's brother Nicholas, and Solange and Kieran Black-in a dual romance that is guaranteed to jump start any romance-lover's heart.
NB: This book is also known as My Love Lies Bleeding.
The day Isabeau St. Croix was turned into a vampire, she was buried alive and left for dead by a vicious British lord. Now, over two hundred years later, she has finally emerged from her nightmarish captivity to seek revenge.
To her dismay, the vampire world is edging on chaos as different factions vie for power, and Isabeau soon finds herself pulled into the shadowy world of undead politics and betrayal. It is there she meets the handsome Logan Drake, whose noble family must fend off those who would try to usurp them.
Then the dread vampire Montmartre begins a plot that will force Logan’s sister, Solange, into a marriage that will allow him to claim the throne for himself. And unless the clans stand together—and Isabeau and Logan stand with each other—the entire vampire realm may be torn asunder.
Hunter Wild attends the secret Helios-Ra Academy, following in her family’s tradition of training as vampire hunters. So when she receives a special invitation to attend the coronation of vampire queen Helena Drake, she’s surprised to think of vampires as something other than evil prey. Some of them, like Helena’s son Quinn, are actually drop-dead gorgeous.
And when her fellow students are struck by a mysterious illness, Hunter suspects they are under attack not from the nightwalkers, but from within the academy. To save her schoolmates, she will have to turn to an unlikely ally whose family rules the realm of the undead: Quinn Drake.
Can Hunter trust her born enemy to have her back without trying to seduce her?
As the newly crowned vampire princess, Solange Drake has a lot to get used to—including some new fangs. Her family is also hosting the Blood Moon, a rare gathering, in the forest near their farm, which means Solange’s best friend, the all-too-human Lucy, must keep her distance, whether she wants to or not.
While the Drakes are busy with the party—and keeping a pack of feral vampires at bay—Lucy has her training at the Helios-Ra Academy (aka Vampire–Hunter High) to keep her occupied. And there’s her cousin Christabel, who almost seems to have a personality when her head isn’t buried in a book. But when Christabel is mistaken for Lucy and kidnapped, it becomes clear that someone—or something—wants to hit Solange where it hurts.
No one messes with Connor Drake’s friends and family and gets away with it, especially since Christabel has awoken feelings in him he can’t fight, including the fear that he might not be able to save her . . .
Nothing about Solange Drake is normal. She’s a newly crowned vampire princess, after all. But she’s also having trouble with her bloodchange—too much trouble. Which is probably why she just tried to eat her boyfriend’s face. The couple has survived treachery, vendettas, and bounties, but they might not be able to survive each other.
Nicholas Drake is starting to think that Solange, his little sister, is turning into a monster. That doesn’t bode well for any of them, including his human girlfriend, Lucy, Solange’s best friend. Because she’d rather kiss vampires than kill them, Lucy is already having trouble fitting in at Helios-Ra Academy. To make matters worse, dangerous new hunters have appeared on the scene . . . ones who live and die by the motto Better dead than undead.
Now it’s up to Nicholas to protect Lucy from Solange and Solange from herself, without having to choose between love and blood . . .
Vampires and magic just don’t mix. That’s what Solange Drake is figuring out. Well, the real Solange. Not the madwoman who has taken over her body and ripped the Queen’s crown from her own mother’s hands to fulfill an ancient prophecy. The real Solange is trapped in the imposter’s mind—somewhere in twelfth-century Britain—where she faces the perils of witches, dragons, and knights.
Meanwhile, back in Violet Hill, the fake Solange has gone on a blood-drunk rampage, feeding on civilians in blatant disregard of a decade’s worth of treaties. With her best friend possessed and her boyfriend missing, Lucy knows, if she doesn’t find a way to reach Solange, the human vampire hunters will exact their revenge—and bring a bloodbath down upon the town like no one has ever seen before. Love and loyalty. Betrayal and deception. The weapons at hand will determine who wins and who loses in this battle royale.
Having been raised by a fraudulent medium, Violet Willoughby doesn’t believe in ghosts. But they believe in her. Visited by a persistent spirit, one who suffered a gruesome death, Violet can no longer ignore her unique ability. She must figure out what this ghost is trying to communicate, and quickly, because the killer is still on the loose.
The only person who can help her is Colin, her best friend since childhood. He understands the true Violet, and perhaps their friendship is growing into something more.
But helping her with her mission could risk their chance at being together. Can Violet find a way to help this ghost and still have a future free of lies?
Witches of London / Lovegrove Legacy
Emma Day and her two cousins-Gretchen and Penelope-are uninterested in their debutante lives. All the boring balls, tiresome curtsying, and polite conversation about nothing at all leave much to be desired. Even the dangerously handsome Cormac Fairfax is too frustratingly enigmatic to woo Emma, despite the fact that she can't stop thinking about him.
But when debutantes start being murdered-and Emma keeps finding the bodies-their worlds are turned upside down. The girls discover their secret family lineage of witchcraft and their own new magical abilities, which they must now embrace in order to stop the chaos, even if that means risking their lives.
NB: This book is also known as The Secret Witch.
In Regency England, cousins Gretchen, Emma, and Penelope are all dealing with what it means to be a Lovegrove - part of a long line of witches who wield great magic, but who must also face great danger.
As a Whisperer, Gretchen constantly hears the murmurs of other witches' spells. And while this does help her to know when one of her own spells is going wrong, the assault on her magical senses makes it difficult to use her own gifts - especially when she's additionally distracted by the cool-as-ice and devastatingly handsome Tobias Lawless.
But while Gretchen tries to hide the truth and resolve her feelings for Tobias, London falls under an evil shadow. Only Gretchen and her cousins can stop a terrible sacrifice from unleashing an unspeakable darkness...
NB: This book is also known as Whisper the Dead.

But now they are no longer together.
Penelope has been kidnapped by a murderous madwoman, trapped in an ancient cellar full of bones, and forced to use her talent for reading objects to locate the remains of long-dead evil witches. Her captor plans to use the bones to reanimate their dark spirits in living bodies and unleash them on an unsuspecting world.
And the only hope to stop such a nightmare rests with Gretchen, Emma, and every witch in London as they struggle to reach Penelope before darkness falls forever . . .
