Hidden Empire

Shadow of the Swan (Hidden Empire 1)

A determined academic, trapped by her ancestor’s pact. A gentleman vampire, sworn to protect her. And a deadly Fae king, bent on claiming her as his bride.

In the golden years of the Victorian Era, Louisa Wallingford investigates myths and legends around the globe with her historian uncle, until her life is torn apart by an ancient promise to a sadistic Fae royal. Faced with becoming his unwilling bride, Louisa’s only escape is another marriage … to a handsome but distant vampire.

Sir Henry Carstairs gave up his humanity to save the queen he loved. When he failed, he vowed to protect her daughter and the country she ruled. Now, his vow requires him to enter an arranged marriage in order to protect a beautiful, headstrong scholar. But as their faux relationship becomes real, a deadly conflict between the British Empire and the Land of Faerie threatens to separate them forever.

The Crimson and the Black (Hidden Empire 2)

Beware of dragons…

Countess Fyodora Korelev—vampiress, bon vivant, and bane of the Ministry of Antiquaries—is back in Victorian London and promptly involves herself in a search for kidnapped selkie girls. When she meets a bold Scottish dragon shifter who is also after the kidnappers, she’s irresistibly drawn to him … and doesn’t like that at all.

Dragon shifter Callum Brown is tracking down the Sassenachs who stole his honorary niece when he runs into a tempting vampiress whose scent sets his very blood on fire. He knows Fyodora is the mate he’s been waiting for, but she refuses to believe him. Now Callum must use all of his skills to seduce his stubborn, beautiful countess while the two of them hunt for his niece.
