Author books

Two brothers. Two sisters. One sweet & sexy rivalry.

Twin brothers and Air Force vets, Tanner and Garrett Mann, return from deployment to find their thriving business burned to the ground. Time for Plan B: Move back to their hometown of Beach Pointe to start over.

But that means running into Paige and Morgan Baxter - gorgeous, curvy, and owners of Two Sisters Cupcakes.

There’s an old diner for sale across town, Garrett’s a great cook, and Tanner has an idea. They’ll make savory cupcakes that men would like. We’re talking bacon and Cheez Whiz. Even better? They'll call it Mann Cakes. Problem is, they end up attracting an unexpected crowd.

Paige is furious. Every man in her life has left her behind, including Tanner. She’s sacrificed everything for her shop. She won’t lose it over some egotistical ex-boyfriend, even if he does have an Air Force-chiseled body. Her younger sister, Morgan, isn’t helping matters. She’s been gaga over Garrett since high school.

To hell with that. If it’s a fight Tanner wants, it’s a fight he’ll get. But how much is Paige willing to risk to win a cupcake war?
One rightful vampire queen. Five irresistible vampire men. Together, they'll sever the crown – or maybe the traitor's head that wears it.

Wren has a dark obsession—to find her mother's murderers before they find her. Every new singing gig brings her closer to crossing their names from her list.

When a detective shows up with a new lead, she jumps at the chance with fangs bared.

But to get the info they need, they’ll have to bust someone out of jail.

Sure. No problem.

Ashe has just been framed for high crimes against the Southern Vampire Clan—but he’s not exactly innocent either.

While waiting for his fate, a five-pointed star tattoo appears on his wrist, similar to the tattoo of a stunning platinum-haired vampire. The sudden attraction between them is undeniable. Better yet, she's just offered to free him.

Sounds like a great deal. So what's the catch?

Turns out, as their enemies close in, the catch could very well be their lives.

EMERGENCE is a paranormal royal reverse harem romance in the SEVER THE CROWN series. Wren connects with another of her men in each book—and learns how their fates are all intricately intertwined. Each book ends in a cliffhanger.
One list. Ten names. A past he can't erase.

Deputy Jesse Maddox's reputation in Beach Pointe is... less than stellar. He thought following in the footsteps of his late father, a former cop, would make up for it. Not quite. Every time he closes his eyes, his past is there to haunt him.

After falling asleep on the job (again), the sheriff gives him an ultimatum. Get counseling for whatever's keeping him awake at night or get out. Jesse would rather have a root canal, but he goes anyway, expecting a big waste of time. What he doesn't expect is to fall in love.

Leigh Meriwether is so close to earning her counselor's license, she can taste it. But when Deputy Maddox walks in, she second guesses her career choice. The horror stories she's heard from her clients about him are enough to make anyone cringe. Despite her reservations, she gives him a game plan: make a list of people he's hurt, apologize and make amends. Simple enough.

What's not so simple? Uncovering the real man hidden within. What's worse? Falling for her own client.

If you love hilarious small town romance, quirky characters, and a grab-the-tissues ending, you'll love Jesse's List.
A fake marriage. A real baby. One huge mess.

Avery Price needs quick cash to save her bridal shop. When she discovers a way to win $50,000, she jumps at the chance. The only catch is, she has to get married or at least stage a convincing wedding. Her best bet is Beach Pointe’s most eligible bachelor. But he hates everything to do with marriage.

Veterinarian Dr. Jack Maddox is a magnet for every gold-digger in town, but Avery is the only one who's ever walked out on the chance to share his bed. When he finds her in his kitchen in only an apron, he’s shocked that she’s changed her mind, but there’s a catch (of course).

Though he’d rather poke his eye out with a fork than even pretend to get married, he can handle a little acting for this fun-sized wildcat.

But, starting a family was never part of the deal…

Get ready to fall in love with the swoon-worthy Jack Maddox in the hot standalone 3rd book of the Beach Pointe series. If you love sizzling bedroom shenanigans, dysfunctional family chaos, and a heart-stopping climax you’ll love Mysti Parker’s hilarious romantic comedy.

In the high elf city of Leogard, an elven noblewoman longs to leave her gilded cage. A half-breed former pirate wants nothing more than to escape his guilty past. Easier said than done...

Caliphany Aranea, nearly a century old, leads an enviable life as high elf King Leopold's niece and daughter of Sirius, Leogard's most famous wizard. She is expected to follow in her father's footsteps to lead the Mage Academy and to marry a man she doesn't even like. Yet, she craves a taste of life outside the city walls.

As a young boy, half-elf Galadin Trudeaux witnessed his parents' death at the hands of pirates. After being raised by those same murderers and forced to do their bidding, he escaped and now lives an honest life as a sea merchant and ranger.

When two brutes at Leogard Harbor attempt to kidnap Caliphany while she dreams of faraway lands, Galadin comes to her rescue. Impressed by his skills, she asks him to train her as a ranger. Though he is hesitant at first to train a woman of her class, Caliphany's hefty sack of gold finally persuades him. Unfortunately, her father is not amused, and the two must escape before Caliphany faces a forced marriage and Galadin faces a noose.

From that moment on, to the finale, where Caliphany must decide where her heart truly lies, she and Galadin embark on a fateful journey that will change their lives forever. Can they survive the trials and tragedies ahead to find a love that stands the test of time?

It’s a race against time for Wren and her four mates. If they win that battle, the foundation will be set for an epic war for the throne. Queen versus queen.

Blood against blood. With both queens at four mates each, the playing field is matched. Or is it?

Just one more mate could ensure Wren’s claim to the throne.

He kept his mouth shut while lurking just out of her reach, always watching, driven only by his need for vengeance. But then everything changed, and it sent him into a tailspin. The wrong choice became the right one, and right became wrong. His only anchor? His heart.

One thing’s for certain though—a queen needs to die. And he might be the final piece of the puzzle, the thriller, to make that happen.

**This is a medium-burn reverse harem vampire romance.**
Wren’s world has caught fire. But she’ll be damned if she lets it burn.

After a devastating blow, Wren clings to normalcy while doubts rage in the back of her mind. Does she really have what it takes to be Queen of the Southern Vampire Clan? Her new potential mate doesn’t seem to think so.

Marlowe—SFBI agent and professional thinker—wants nothing to do with Wren or to be her next mate. Following down that path would lead to fiery destruction, and he’s already been there, done that. In fact, he’s seriously considering removing the tattoo that links him to her. He thinks Wren doesn’t have the grit or smarts needed to sever the crown.

Oh, he’s about to be schooled.

But in doing so, Wren’s alliances are tested, and more startling secrets are revealed. With a little help from Marlowe, though, Wren realizes that maybe you really can fight a royal fire with fire.

Wren's fourth mate just might be the death of her...that is if the world doesn't end first.
From USA Today bestselling author Lindsey R. Loucks and award-winning author Mysti Parker, get lost in a paranormal reverse harem series that will leave you breathless and begging for more!

Wren, true heir to the vampire’s Southern Clan throne, has recently joined the Kidnapped Multiple Times Club. She’s certain she’s sick of it—until she meets her latest kidnapper and potential fourth mate.

He’s dangerous. He’s lethal. He’s basically Idris Elba in leather. And he looks damn good in a tux.

He’ll make the perfect date for a cult party. The murderess queen will be there, and Wren can sever her crown once and for all. If he can be persuaded, that is.

Hawk—a highly trained assassin—wants to be left alone to do his job. He’s had a headache nearly forever, a throbbing one that beats in time with his strange new tattoo like a ticking clock.

Fitting since the woman named Wren has been prophesied by his granddad to end the world in one week.

One week. Hardly enough time to stop an apocalypse, much less to accept his role as Wren’s fourth mate.

Even if they save the world and sever the crown, their future together could be as unforgiving as the clock ticking down their final seconds—as Wren, Hawk, and all her other mates are about to learn the hard way.

**This is a medium-burn reverse harem vampire romance.**

In another time and another place, his choice would be easy.
