The
Lost Treasure
The
Paladin Princess Book 3 
 
Decaying
corpses of powerful sirens float in the sea, forming a grisly trail
toward the horror that killed them.

 

Mermaids
whisper about a new threat in the ocean, a menace that imperils all
the denizens of the waters, from Swerighe, to Alkebulan, to all the
undiscovered seas.

 

Charlotte
and her troupe, searching for clues, hear whispers of a secret
treasure that might be connected to the siren deaths. An aged merman
who has traveled farther than any other, reveals to them the tale of
a strange, strange land:

 

There
is a faraway land, full of steep mountains, and dangerous creatures.
The forest surrounding the tallest mountain is home to a multitude of
dread monsters, each more terrifying than the last, who hunger for
the flesh of unsuspecting travelers foolish enough to venture into
their realm. At the apex of this tall peak, which rises twenty
thousand feet, past deadly glaciers and a river of fire, is a
sanctuary watched over by a forgotten order of mystics skilled in the
art of battle and devastation. In the rear of the sanctuary is a
passage that leads into the mountain, and deep into the heart of the
Earth. At its end are catacombs guarded by a beast so dreadful that
minds will go mad at the sight of it. The door to the catacombs can
only be accessed by defeating the beast that guards it. Inside,
concealed by a hideous shroud and an ancient poison, lies the lost
treasure of El Dorado.”

Confessions
The
Possession Chronicles Book 1
by
Carrie Dalby
Genre:
Supernatural Southern Gothic Family Saga 
 
Their
love brought scandal and demons.

 

 

 

Lucy
Easton, an aspiring novelist, will do anything to help boost her
chances at publication—including betraying her family. But when she
crosses paths with the charismatic Alexander Melling, her aspiration
for success pales in comparison to the attraction she feels towards
him.

 

 

Alexander
is a young lawyer from a powerful family, striving to free himself
from his father’s shadow. The more time he spends with Lucy, the
more desperate he becomes to shed the secrets of his past—a past
which can destroy the both himself and the woman he’s falling in
love with.

 

 

While
Alexander struggles with his past sins, Lucy must decide whether
loving him is worth risking her own safety…and her heart.

 

 

From
gossip magazines to gleaming Mardi Gras balls, Lucy and Alex navigate
the Edwardian era in the Deep South with both passion and guilt.

of Evil
The
Possession Chronicles Book 2




During
the spring of 1906, Magdalene Jones is hired to be a companion to
Ruth Melling at Seacliff Cottage, the Mellings’ second home on Mobile

society banter and a manor hour infested with demonic activity.
Alexander, the Mellings’ bachelor son, and Magdalene find themselves
oppressed by demons playing upon their lusts. Claudio De Fiore–a
young Italian deacon training to become a priest–and newly arrived
from Scotland, Douglas Campbell, seek to protect Magdalene from the
evil within the walls but they themselves might be part of the
trouble.
