Misery Loves Company

MiseryLovesCompany300

When it comes to magic, more isn’t always merrier.

Miss Misery, Book 3

Keep letting the Gryphons blackmail her? Or join a goblin for tea? Choices, choices.

Furious at the Gryphons’ betrayal, former vigilante Jessica Moore is determined to cut the law enforcement agency from her life—and hopes doing so will solidify her rocky relationship with Lucen.

When a friend’s soul is sucked dry by a goblin, Jess finds it’s not so easy to let go of her past. Unwilling to let down someone who needs help, she puts aside her anger to work with the Gryphons and solve the case.

A stolen soul isn’t her only problem. Boston’s goblin leader is calling in the debt Jess owes. To plug the holes in both her personal and professional dam, Jess must unearth information about a magic she never knew existed, all the while testing Lucen’s patience and stirring the wrath of old enemies.

What she discovers will reveal the terrifying truth behind the Gryphons’ treachery, and force her to choose where her loyalty—and her heart—truly lie.

Warning: Secrets will be revealed, friendships will be tested, and old enemies will pick fights. On the bright side, there are still naked satyrs for a distraction between battles.

Tracey Martin

UNH_photoTracey Martin grew up outside of Philadelphia, the lucky recipient of a drama-free childhood, which is why she spent so much time reading about other people’s lives. It was while she was working on her doctorate in psychology that she had an epiphany–imaginary people are way more fun than real ones. And so she began writing. Never able to choose just one of anything, she currently writes both urban fantasy for adults and contemporary stories for teens.

She likes her coffee simple, her music epic, and her movies to contain explosions. A city girl at heart, she doesn’t understand how she and her husband ended up living in New Hampshire, but writing keeps her off the mean, small town streets.

“Wedding Ghost” is now available! It’s already out on Kindle and Smashwords and will soon be out at Barnes & Noble, Kobo and iTunes. Hope you enjoy the new story! As always, thanks so much for your support.

“Wedding Ghost”

wedding ghost 400x600La Fi wants to be done with the wedding from hell. The fact that it’s her own makes it worse.

Dreading the spotlight, she’s tempted to elope. But with their wedding only days away, that’s not an option for supernatural detectives, Thulu and La Fi.

Fortunately, a case comes along that helps distract them as the big day approaches. The client is a bride, dead for over ninety years, who wants to find the truth behind her murder.

Add to the mix a teenage ghost fixated on making La Fi his own bride, and since he can’t come back to life, he’s happy to bring her over to his side.

Juggling the case, her wedding and the sinister teenager, La Fi would like to enjoy what should be the happiest day of her life. That’s assuming the ghost boy doesn’t get his way and she actually makes it down the aisle.

“Wedding Ghost” is a prequel novelette in the Modern Magics series.

The fourth novelette in the Modern Magics series actually takes place between “Ghost Memory” and ‘Unwanted Ghost.” I had many requests to tell the story of Thulu and La Fi’s wedding, but of course there had to be a ghost involved. :) This one rather surprised me, too. The novelette will be available very soon!

1600x2400

Ripped from her deathbed, Noah transports Kate to the Olam Yetzirah, the dimension where universes form. They seek the advice of the archangel, Michael, in how best to get back to Earth and their children. Kate’s son and their newborn daughter, Lucia, the one spoken of in the prophecy Gemini Rising, await their return.

Trouble arises and concern ripples through the Olam. Kate is unable to make the transition from human to bond mate and her dreams of returning to Earth with Noah are crushed. Uriel will become Kate’s mentor while Noah is dispatched to Naresh, his home planet and to his people to whom the Light no longer speaks.

Will Kate become the bond mate she is meant to be? Will Noah find welcome with his people or will they despise him for taking the Light from their souls. Most important of all, will the prophecy of Lucia be fulfilled, or will Belial, demon of Hades, murder her in a fit of jealous rage.

 

You can buy The Light and the Flame on Amazon.
