Kotahi Bay

The Way the Sky Curves

Melody has always known she was different – sucking the life from her father when she was 18 proved that – but she’s spent the past few years pretending it isn’t true. It’s a shame that Robbie, the guy she’s fallen for, only wants her for her power. Faced with the truth, Melody has no choice but to run again; this time back to her estranged family in Kotahi Bay.

Noah can taste magic emanating from Melody the moment he meets her, but he’s tempted by more than just that. She might be sarcastic and quick to bite, but she’s vulnerable too, and his protective nature draws him in. The only problem is that he’s got secrets of his own, and if he lets them slip she’ll never trust him again. 

Melody must finally accept who she is, because if she can’t, Robbie will destroy her family and her life.

Beneath Broken Waves

Can they trust each other enough to save a dying god?

Jake’s ability to amplify magic makes him useful to others, but means he’s always playing second fiddle. When he uncovers a toxin seeping into the ocean, he hopes that finding the source might gain him the respect he so desperately craves. That is if he can keep the daughter of the sea from killing him.

Moana has lived beneath the waves for so long she can’t remember what it was like to be human. She knows they’re to blame for the poison leeching into her waters and she’ll do anything to save her father, even if it means taking lives. But when Moana lures Jake into the ocean, something about him stays her hand. This young mortal makes her feel alive again, and what’s more, she has a feeling she can use him for more than just his blood.

Will Jake and Moana be able to stop the threat to the sea god, and the Bay?

This volume also includes previously published novella In the Spirit, your first introduction to Alyssa, the main character from In the Earth’s Embrace (Kotahi Bay #3).

In the Earth’s Embrace

If she thought the only skeleton in her closet was a ghost, she was dead wrong.

Alyssa’s finally settling into life in Kotahi Bay, and things are good. Mostly. Only, she hasn’t really made any friends. Oh, and people keep insisting that she take over her dead grandmother’s role as the town witch. But if she’s learned anything about her family it’s that magic has a way of warping even the best of them. Alyssa doesn’t want a bar of that so she continues to do what she does best–ignore the problem and hope it goes away–until her best friend Kelly shows up with secrets of her own.

Despite his intimate connection with death, necromancer Brandon needs help or his terminally ill nephew will die. The only way to get the cure is to convince Alyssa to become the town witch, or–worse–raise her grandmother from the grave. He thought he’d put his dark past behind him, but isn’t a life more important?
Can Alyssa and Brandon find a way through the secrets and lies that surround them, or will they doom Kotahi Bay to darkness?
