For him, there has never been love. His world has always been empty and soulless. He was just a vessel of discord, lost in a black and white existence, numbly making his way through life. But, he was content, even cherished his distance from true reality. But his entire dreary existence was thrown into the winds of uncertainty when she entered his life. Her arrival will force him from his comfortable cocoon of cacophony and ignite the burning inside of him. They share in their past hardships and try to disregard their own resistance to this new found love. Even with the interference of another’s bitter jealousy the light they have will shine through. But that light will awaken something that should have stayed hidden, and creates a dark path that lies before one of them. It will end in the pain of the not so innocent and in an eternal hell custom prepared by an angel.

Er ist Freude und Schmerz, Frieden und Krieg, mein Leben und meine Liebe.Bear hatte einst geschworen, Thia gegen alle Gefahren zu beschützen. Dass sie einmal ihr Herz an den geächteten Biker mit Engelsgesicht verlieren könnte - und er sich auf der Suche nach einem Ausweg für sie opfern würde -, hätte sie niemals für möglich gehalten. Erneut auf sich allein gestellt und ohne Hoffnung, ihn jemals wiederzusehen, ist jeder Tag für Thia unerträglich.

Dieses Buch macht absolut süchtig!" Good in the Stacks Book ReviewBand vier der King-Reihe von USA-Today-Bestseller-Autorin T. M. Frazier
The life of a spinster in Victorian London isn't an easy one on the best of days, but such a life becomes infinitely more complicated when said spinster is "soulless" - a preternatural bridging the gap between the natural and supernatural worlds. Miss Alexia Tarabotti has this unique distinction, and when she is assailed at a formal gathering by a rove vampire, an encounter that results in the death of the half-starved creature, her circumstances become exponentially more complicated indeed! Now caught up in an intrigue with life or death stakes, Alexia must rely on all her talents to outmatch the forces conspiring against her, but it may be the man who has caught her eye - Lord Conall Maccon - and their budding flirtation that truly drives her to her wit's end!
Condemned by society and her werewolf husband due to a pregnancy she cannot explain, Alexia Maccon - preternatural, tea aficionado - seeks an explanation for this "infant inconvenience" so as to cleanse her sullied reputation and prove her fool of a husband wrong. Preternaturals are a rare breed and the only history of their kind lies in Italy with the Templars, a group that once partnered with preternaturals to hunt down werewolves and vampires. Will Alexia find an explanation for her impossible offspring? Or do the Templars have other plans for the curious "Soulless One"?
Settling into her new life as the Lady Woolsey, Alexia finds her days quite challenging. Whether it is a regiment of supernatural soldiers camped out on her front lawn or the demands of being the Queen's "muhjah," there never seems to be a want of new hurdles to overcome. But when stories of supernaturals rendered normal by some unknown force begin cropping up, Alexia has a rather serious mystery on her hands. Can she root out the cause of this phenomenon, which smacks of some larger plot at work?
In the late 21st century, scientists created a serum that gave every person nine lives, also known as souls. Flush with expendable life, Earth collapsed into war and anarchy, leaving the Catholic Church to step in and take control. In a world where the stealing of souls is big business, it takes people like Constance Grace, detective in the Soul Theft Division, to hunt the criminals down and strip them of their remaining souls. When social-climbing con man, Noah Hannock, plunks himself on the church's radar, he becomes Constance's problem. With a brand new partner, Mikon Cross and seven of her nine given souls remaining, Connie has to enter high society under a too-familiar alias to tempt Noah into her web. While the chemistry between Connie and Mikon is scorching hot, the reality is they don't trust each other. Each with their own secrets to protect, the hunt for Noah Hannock threatens them both. The only way they can survive is if they learn to lay themselves on the line for each other.
Alexia Tarabotti is laboring under a great many social tribulations. First, she has no soul. Second, she's a spinster whose father is both Italian and dead. Third, she was rudely attacked by a vampire, breaking all standards of social etiquette. Where to go from there? From bad to worse apparently, for Alexia accidentally kills the vampire -- and then the appalling Lord Maccon (loud, messy, gorgeous, and werewolf) is sent by Queen Victoria to investigate. With unexpected vampires appearing and expected vampires disappearing, everyone seems to believe Alexia responsible. Can she figure out what is actually happening to London's high society? Will her soulless ability to negate supernatural powers prove useful or just plain embarrassing? Finally, who is the real enemy, and do they have treacle tart?The Parasol Protectorate is a comedy of manners set in Victorian London: full of werewolves, vampires, dirigibles, and tea-drinking.This boxed set includes the whole series: Soulless, Changeless, Blameless, Heartless, and Timeless.

Houdini Scientist: Noun.1) A young inventor that hides the secrets to her science behind elaborate misdirection and an illusion of incomprehensible complexity, like a magician would.2) Just another soulless zombie trapped in a secret base that officially doesn't exist.3) A girl that will save the world, if she can save herself first.* * *"Some savants can play concert-level piano at the age of five, without ever taking a lesson. Others can do advanced math in their heads, draw a Picasso with crayons, or recite every word they've ever read or heard. Her piano was a lathe, a plasma cutter, and an automated mill. And the songs she played shook the world."* * * In the control room of a secret mountain base, a dozen engineers crowded around a wall of monitors as the girl on the screens connected the final pieces of a month long, multimillion-dollar project. "They can't seriously be thinking about turning that thing on, can they?" the new engineer said. "Believe it." "She's what, thirteen?" Stepping closer to the screen, the lead engineer just shook his head, "I've seen her like this before. Almost a trance the—" "Have you looked closely at that thing?" He pointed to the array of ducts, pipes, and tubes that fed an enormous ring bolted to the ceiling, dripping with frost. "Staring up, it almost looks like a—" "A Stargate, right out of the TV sho—" "And they're prepared to let a teenage girl not only build one, but turn it on? Are you crazy?" Right then she hesitated, held out her hand as if conducting an orchestra, and pointed to the camera. "God help us," the lead engineer said, sending more power than the entire US grid surging through the alien-looking device. Booooommmmmm!!! They plunged into darkness as a muffled explosion rumbled through the base. "Richter 3.9!" someone announced, lights flickering on. "Get me eyes in that chamber!" the XO said. "I want to see what kind of rabbit she just pulled from our hat."A much calmer eleven years earlier...The newly transferred major showed his badge at the gate...The Art of the Houdini Scientist is a prequel to The Hummingbird Series (Patent Mine, Hell from a Well, The Heredity of Hummingbirds, and Mourning After Dawn) and Daughters of Immortality Prequel, in this case, literally means it was written years after "Patent Mine" but takes place (within the storyline) before "Patent Mine". Because of this it naturally, and unavoidably ends where the other begins. The books in this series can best be thought of like seasons on TV shows, with "The Art of the Houdini scientist..." as season one.
