Exiles of the Realm

Fairy tales come to life when five storybook villains are exiled to Earth. Forced to in a world without magic, their only hope to break the curse that binds them here. And how do you break a curse? With true love, of course.

Hook

This might not be Neverland, but then again, he's not your mother's Captain Hook.

Infamous thief, James Hook knows all about chaos. Back in the Fae Realm, he wove enough trouble to earn himself a one-way ticket to exile. Now he’s been banished to a world without magic, and his only hope of getting back home hinges on stealing the heart of the one woman who seems immune to his charm.

Mercy Herrera’s daily life is a well-ordered machine. Between work, volunteering, and finishing her degree, she doesn’t have room for distractions. So when a dangerously seductive stranger sweeps into her life promising the solutions to all her problems, Mercy doesn’t have time for his antics. Not until mysterious forces upend her world–the kind her rational mind tell her can’t possibly exist.

But when a simple mistake turns into a disaster, the pair are thrust into the fight of their lives, and forced to make a gut-wrenching decision–risk their hearts, or stand alone against fate.

Hunt

He’s no Prince Charming.

Adele Grayson’s life is no fairy tale. Introverted and managing crippling anxiety, living in San Francisco is hard enough. The last thing she needs is to have her day ruined by a freak rainstorm that sends her running for cover…and straight into the arms of a hard-bodied stranger who rings all her warning bells. Adele knows he’s dangerous, but she can’t help wondering…if he’s so bad, why does he feel so good?

Once the Queen’s deadly Huntsman, Bron Douglas is now exiled from the Fae Realm and beginning to doubt he’ll ever return…especially now that an otherworldly assassin has followed him to the mortal world. When an enigmatic beauty crashes into his life, Bron isn’t sure if she’s simply another tempting distraction or the key to breaking the curse that binds him.

But when Adele unwittingly snatches the source of the assassin’s immortality, the killer trains his sights on them both. Suddenly, the pair are faced with a difficult choice—give into fear and run for their lives, or fight back and claim their own Happily Ever After.

Jinn

Make a Wish at Your Own Risk.

Growing up in San Francisco’s oldest running antique bookshop, Nicole Starling has spent her life surrounded by fairy tales and legends. But she was never sure if she really believed any of her eccentric family’s wild stories until the day that a mysterious stranger moved into the apartment upstairs. One look and Nicole knows there’s more to the dangerously handsome stranger than meets the eye…and now she’s determined to be the one who finds out exactly what it is.

Exiled from the Fae Realm for crimes against the crown, Shay Madrid has given up hope that he’ll ever return home. Now all he wants is to live out the rest of his days in peace and quiet…but it seems the dark-eyed beauty who runs the shop downstairs has other plans. And though he knows that nothing good can come from getting closer to her, he can’t quite find the will to push her away.

But when Shay’s old enemies show up at Nicole’s door, he knows that they’re both in terrible danger, and the only chance they have of making it out alive is by putting their hearts and souls on the line.
