He has dreams of being a schoolteacher and a novelist, as well as having a closet big enough to hold his obsessive collection of cardigans.

The Vampire Code #5: Benjamin Franklin Johnston is still reeling from the loss of his job and wondering what to do with his life when he shows up on the doorstep of his best friend Chris Hawthorne’s newly inherited Victorian mansion in Crimson, Virginia. He’s come to help Chris settle in and ends up getting much more than he bargained for. He finds himself in the middle of a supernatural battle and in the arms of a man named Raul, a security man for the Crimson Corporation. The very Corporation that bought out his employer and handed him a pink slip, essentially ruining his professional life. Ben doesn’t forgive easily and holds a grudge longer than anyone, but something about Raul has his defenses faltering. There is something different about Crimson, Virginia and there is something different about Raul that has Ben craving more. Can Ben let his anger go and give Raul a chance? Or will suspicions and mystical forces be the end of them?
Raul Abella has never been called an easy man. He’s gruff and to the point, sometimes too much so. He got off on the wrong foot with Chris Hawthorne, letting his prejudices get the best of him and now he finds himself drawn in a way he has never been before to this man Ben Johnston, who just so happens to be Chris’s best friend. Raul is certain he won’t be getting a glowing review from Chris, but he’s determined to capture the heart of Ben Johnston, his forever chosen love. The going is slow, Ben’s defenses are hard to penetrate, but Raul is willing to put in the work. Raul knows his position within the Crimson Corporation and the true nature of himself and his coven will be hard for Ben to believe, but he knows he must try if he wants a chance with his forever love. Raul may be gruff and at times off-putting, but he has the heart and soul of a warrior – he never gives up.

He must serve her as long as she walks the earth. Lucian is a man trapped in a gilded prison. When he arrives at the Crimson Coven to rid them of their curse he is met by suspicion and hostility, two things he has come to expect from his life.

The Demon Lord #11: Lord Nael DuFour, the Demon Lord, has been sealed in the Demon Sphere for a Millennia. The Dragon Stone has set him free. Little did Jai and his chosen Levi realize what they were unleashing when they made their deal with the Demon Lord to help save the Crimson Coven. Nael is just looking for a little fun when he drops in on the Crimson Plantation. A millennium away has made for a very bored Demon Lord. He worms his way into an invitation to stay at Crimson, much to the chagrin of Cullen Volakis, and is ready to lend some assistance in the Crimson Feud with Fane Minea and the Vampire Council. What Lord Nael is not expecting is the moment he catches the scent of his soulmate on the air. He has been trapped for so long he almost didn’t know what the scent and the feeling meant, until he laid eyes on the most beautiful creature in all the realms. Peter Deschamps, his soulmate. The patience and self-sacrifice of courtships do not come easily to a man like Lord Nael. He must learn to put his own desires second if he has any chance of winning his lover’s heart.
Peter Deschamps is the IT brain of the Crimson Coven operation. What he lacks in size and strength, he makes up for in unrivaled intellect. He is already two centuries old, although his small and slight stature makes him look much younger than his years. He has been waiting for his chosen, wondering when he would find the other half of his heart like many of his coven-mates had. What he does not expect is for the other half of his heart to be held by the Lord of the Underworld, the master of darkness Lord Nael DuFour. How can two people so different have any hope of coming together? Peter must defeat the fear of his own inadequacy if he has any hope of keeping his forever love. They are literally worlds apart, and they will stay that way if Peter’s courage continues to falter.
War and Death are coming to Crimson’s very doorstep. Courage is what they all need if they have any hope of survival.
