Book 2 in the Fallen Siren series
Genre: urban fantasy

About Reckoning:
Join Agents Emma Monroe and Zack Armstrong.
She’s sacrificed. He’s suffered. They’ve both been betrayed.
Now it’s time for a reckoning.

  Special Agent Emma Monroe has a secret. She’s a Fallen Siren, cursed by the gods and banished to Earth for her failure to prevent the kidnapping of Persephone. As an FBI agent she saves the lives of others believing redemption could be one rescue away.

  Her partner Zack is a werewolf and former Black Ops sniper who once carried out a string of questionable assignments. Now he’s determined to atone for his past. Ironically, there’s a portion of his past Zack doesn’t remember—an affair with Emma. Giving into their attraction for one another almost led to their undoing. Now it’s back to business as usual.

  While trying to unravel the mystery behind a series of kidnappings in Southern California, Emma and Zack become entangled with political tensions in the vampire and Were worlds. Not to mention the struggles they face in their relationship with one another. With so much uncertainty, they come to realize the only thing they can really count on is one another…or can they?

“You think you’ve come to terms with it. But you haven’t.”

“Come to terms with what?” I’ve busied myself by gathering up the coffeepot and empty cup. By the time Kallistos answers, I’ve made it as far as the dining table.

“Not being able to have who you really want. Arm- strong.”

It’s not said in anger or recrimination, but once the words spill from his lips I can’t seem to walk any farther. The delicate china cup begins to rattle against the sau- cer. I look down. My hand is shaking. He takes the cup from me along with the pot and sets them on the table. “Talk to me,” he says, pulling me back over to the sofa. “I can’t. Not about this.”

“Are you afraid you’re going to hurt my feelings?” “You have no feelings.” As soon as I speak the words, I regret them.

“Don’t mistake control for lack of passion. I know the rules. I know how to play the game. I’m not some naive, idealistic boy. I was once. Not anymore.” He places my hand over his heart. “I am devoted to you. I will forever remain so. Demeter is the only one who could jeopardize that, and her ability to do so, her power to do so, is extremely restrictive.”

“As long as I live without love,” I whisper. “As long as I don’t give my heart.”

Kallistos drops my hand. “Just stick with me, kid.” “You sure that what we have is enough?”

“I am.”

I smile. “But what if that changes? You know, I’ve been told I can be pretty irresistible.”

Kallistos gets up, walks over the bar, and despite the fact that the sun has just risen, he pours himself a drink. “You may be irresistible. But I’m not. At least not where you’re concerned.” He swallows the scotch, then sets the glass down. “I can walk in the light, but I’m not of it. I’ve done things, had to do things, will continue to do things. Do you understand?”

I’m not sure I do.

His back is to me. Heaviness bows his shoulders. “I’m not the hero, Emma. I’ll never be the hero. I can’t be redeemed.”

Kallistos straightens, draws a breath, continues. “Will you come to me tonight?”

The uncertainty in his voice is wrenching. I nod, then find my voice. “I will.”

Cursed by S. J. Harper
Book 1 in the Fallen Siren series
Genre: urban fantasy

About Cursed:
Meet FBI Agents Emma Monroe and Zack Armstrong.

She's cursed. He's damned.
Together, they make one hell of a team.

Emma Monroe is a Siren, cursed by the gods and bound to earth to atone for an ancient failure. She’s had many names and many lives, but only one mission: redemption. Now that she works missing persons cases for the FBI, it could be just a rescue away. Unless her new partner leads her astray.

Special Agent Zack Armstrong just transferred into the San Diego Field Office. He’s a werewolf, doing his best to beat back the demons from his dark and dangerous past. As a former Black Ops sniper, he’s taken enough lives. Now he’s doing penance by saving them.

Emma and Zack’s very first case draws them deep into the realm of the paranormal, and forces them to use their own supernatural abilities. But that leaves each of them vulnerable, and there are lines partners should not cross. As secrets are revealed and more women go missing, one thing becomes clear: as they race to save the victims, Emma and Zack risk losing themselves.

Book 0.5 in the Fallen Siren series
Genre: urban fantasy

About Captured:
Join FBI Agents Emma Monroe and Zack Armstrong.
She’s a Siren. He’s a Werewolf.
Their mission is redemption.

Emma Monroe is a Fallen Siren, cursed by the gods and banished to Earth for her failure to prevent the kidnapping of Persephone. She’s had many names and many lives, but only one mission: redemption. Now she works for the FBI and is on temporary assignment in Charleston. Solving this next missing persons case could be the key to ending her ancient curse—unless the temptation that’s her new partner gets in the way.

Zack Armstrong is a Werewolf. Tall, dark, and dangerous, he currently works for one of the bureau’s elite Child Abduction Rapid Deployment teams. In many respects the man is every bit as mysterious as his secret and perilous past. But there are two things he’s certain about, that he’s going to get his man and his woman.

When Zack finds himself suddenly shy a partner and a third child goes missing in Charleston, Emma goes from consultant to CARD team member in the space of a few hours. The abductions of the first two boys ended in murder, an outcome that neither Zack nor Emma can abide. As they race against time to track down the kidnapper and rescue the latest victim, they find themselves fighting something just as treacherous—a growing attraction that can’t be ignored or denied.
