    Summary

    The pads of his fingers connected with his own neck. Visceral carnage. An open wound, wet and slick.

    Father Paul loomed over him with deep red curtains dripping down from his open mouth. Was that… his blood?

    Was this… Really happening?

    As the void overtook his senses, Riley couldn’t help but smile at his own foolishness. Miracles had happened on Crockett Island so, of course, the devil would come to collect his due. And, of course, Riley had fallen in love with him.

    Summary

    This was God’s plan, it would seem.

    It was impetuous of John, really. Careless, even, to keep the doors open at such a time of need. He could have simply taken Flynn aside, reasoned to his innermost beliefs, saved him the pain of death-- but the mixture of hunger, the sound of the other man’s heart beat, the sweet scent of blood--

    Any man, of faith or not, could hardly resist such an invitation.

    Summary


    He’d taken Millie to his bed in the end.
    Or, rather, they’d taken each other.
    It wasn’t something either one had ever dared planned or even hoped for. But they’d just known when the time came, and it had happened, almost miraculously so. Sin, joy, guilt. It all mingled like blood and flesh. The little seaside community – this little fishing village on Crockett Island – held many unspoken things, and those things were tied to the waves that washed in and out with the days and hours.
    It washed away sanity, too.
    He knew that now.

     

    Father John Pruitt hopes he can save his lover, his daughter, and his congregation from death.
    His plan is far from perfect, but one inquisitive professor doing research on the island could destroy everything.
    More unfortunate still is that the saint he tried to be wants one thing, and the beast he's become wants another.

    Summary

    With a wedding comes peace—peace between clans, peace across the mountains, peace in every fjord...
    And chaos within Randvi’s very being.

    When she meets a wolf amid an unkindness of Ravens, she hardly expects the craving to invite such long teeth into the meat of her heart.

    -

    “If he hurts you,” she hisses, her breath warm on Randvi’s ear, “I am too far in drink to keep from striking him.”

    Randvi twists to meet her gaze for an instant, their stares clashing. She wets her lips with a nervous dart of her tongue and finds strength in the hungry way Eivor tracks it. “Stand near and let me look at you, and it will be smoother for me.”

    She does not linger to see the slight widening of Eivor’s eyes at that, the flare of her nostrils and the clenching of her jaw. Randvi turns and follows her husband to their bridal couch to the wingbeat cadence of her racing heart.
