Knight of the Crescent Moon
Tam must protect her city and open her heart—before time runs out.
Homicide Detective Tam Paradiso really doesn't need more complications, but, she spends her days keeping the streets of Philadelphia safe from gangsters and her nights keeping the innocents safe from supernatural monsters. Not only is she trying not to get taken out by hostiles every night, but she has to hide her monster hunting from the one person she trusts most—her cop partner, Xavier.
The last thing Tam needs are additional complications, but when sixteenth century British playwright Christopher Marlowe appears during one of her hunts, saves her from death by ghoul, and then asks her help to hunt down a strigoi running loose in the city, Tam finds herself embroiled in a more sinister plot than she ever could have imagined.
Between hunting the bloodthirsty monster, sniffing out a mole in the Philadelphia PD, and uncovering her own family secrets, Tam is afraid to fall for the handsome, velvet-caped, time-traveling, stranger—especially since he will be zapped back to his time period in less than a week. Can Tam and Marlowe track down the beast before time runs out? Will Tam face her feelings for Marlowe before it's too late?
Love Burns. So Do Witches.
Italy, 1491. When Celestina DiCapria, at the end of her requisite year-long mourning for her murdered father, hears the bell of Montanina ring not for death but for the youth of Florence to rise up against the plague of witchcraft, she puts aside her dreams of adventure and a hunky scalpellino to answer the call. The formidable Austrian Friar Thane Brucker and his holy army are Celestina’s path to vengeance on finding the witch who killed her father and left his soul to rot in purgatory.
Rinaldo SanGiorgio, a rock cutter from the hills above Florence, yearns to break free from his family’s quarry and paint frescos. When he finds his muse in Celestina, he vows to help with her fight—until the fervent religious mob destroys the art he loves. Rinaldo is torn between saving the Renaissance’s greatest art and his greatest love.
But when Celestina is herself accused of witchcraft, Rinaldo realizes flesh and bone are more important than plaster and pigments. Can Celestina and Rinaldo overcome the secrets and lies of a jilted lover, a lustful friar, a powerful monsignor, and an overprotective nonna before Montanina rings for her?
