Years ago I attended my first readers con and met Jessa Slade. The first book in this series had just come out, and a beautiful friendship was born. With each book in this series you are sucked more and more into the world Jessa has created. 

seduced by shadowsBook 1 Seduced by Shadows

When Sera Littlejohn meets a violet-eyed stranger, he reveals a supernatural battle veiled in the shadows, and Sera is tempted to the edge of madness by a dangerous desire. Ferris Archer takes Sera under his wing, now that she is a talyan—possessed by a repentant demon with hellish powers. Archer’s league of warriors have never fought beside a female before, and never in all his centuries has Archer found a woman who captivates him like Sera.

With the balance shifting between good and evil, passion and possession, Sera and Archer must defy the darkness and dare to embrace a love that will mark them forever.

forged in shadowsBook 2 Forged in Shadows

THE WAR BETWEEN GOOD AND EVIL HAS BALED FOR MILLENNIA, WITH THE MARKED SOULS CAUGHT IN THE MIDDLE. BUT THE NEW GIRL DOESN’T PLAY BY THE OLD RULES.

Liam Niall never meant to be a leader. Having barely survived the Irish potato famine, he escaped to Chicago, where he lost half his soul and gained a wayward band of demon-possessed warriors. Now, as they face a morphing evil, Liam grows weary and plagued by doubt — until a new weapon falls into his hands. Her name is Jilly Chan. To save her demon-ridden soul, Liam must win her for his battle … and his bed.

Waging a one-woman war against threats to the street kids she mentors, Jilly won’t be any man’s woman or weapon. But Liam — with his hard eyes, soft brogue, and compelling hands — is a danger to both her rebellious independence and her heart.

Two halved souls sharing one fierce passion will sear a fresh scar across the city. Who’s in danger now?

vowed in shadowsBook 3 Vowed in Shadows

Possession by a demon cost Jonah Walker his faith, his humanity, and his wife. Once a righteous missionary man, he endures immortality with nothing but a body built for battle and a bent for retribution. But his last devastating fight left him wounded beyond healing and his only chance to redeem his soul lies with a fallen woman.

Thrust into a wicked underworld of shadows and sin, Nim Hamlin can’t believe her wanton ways as the “Naughty Nymphette” enthralled a demon… and a damned saint. The world she knows doesn’t deserve deliverance, But Jonah’s touch holds an unholy allure-–and she’s never been any good at resisting temptation.

As darkness gathers in the sweltering Chicago summer, Jonah and Nim must conquer the demons of their past to face even fiercer monsters as their passion ignites a furious power. Only their sins can save them now..

darkness undoneBook 4 Darkness Undone

Sidney Westerbrook has always studied darkness and damnation from a sensible distance. Now, to earn his place as a league Bookkeeper, he must discover why Chicago is such a battleground of soul-linked warriors. But the research becomes personal when he finds himself over his head and under attack — and at the mercy of a waif with demon-lit eyes and a deep yearning in her heart. 

Alyce Carver has been alone longer than she can remember, battered by the living nightmares that haunt her city. Cornered by yet another gang of demons, she unwittingly joins forces with a handsome scholar who can salvage her past, and she in turn may be the key to his investigations. But she won’t let him go until he shows her everything she’s been missing.

What begins as an experiment in possession becomes a trial by desire so powerful it threatens both their lives, even as it binds their souls.

the darkest nightBook 4.5 The Darkest Night

Wishing you a demonic Christmas…

Possessed by a divine entity, Cyril Fane fought rampant evil and the pain of more private losses with a fiery golden sword…until he was beaten and left for dead by a malevolent force. Now exiled from his angelic brethren, he reluctantly joins the Chicago league of talyan—immortal warriors possessed by repentant demons—as his only chance to reclaim his sword and his place in the holy sphericanum.

Bella McGreay, mysterious mistress of the Mortal Coil night club, has also danced around an uneasy affiliation with the talyan. She has secrets of her own to keep, and as the days shorten toward the winter solstice, shadows are deepening all around. Even as she barricades herself against the joys—and terrors—of the Christmas season, she’ll have to decide whether the shadows or her secrets are more dangerous.

Bella and Cyril have good reason to fear evil when an old enemy returns to torment them and the Chicago league. But only together will they find a way to the light after the darkest night.
