A wickedly sweet tale
filled with danger, humor, and the intoxicating passion of first love.

Sweet Desire Wicked Fate
Book 1 of the Trilogy

Gold Medal Award Winning Young Adult Horror, Romance novel. Sensuous and suspenseful, Sweet Desire, Wicked Fate is a hair-raising young adult fantasy thriller filled with unique creatures, horror, humor, and the intoxicating passion of first love.

Buried family secrets can be deadly when uncovered.

What Jaden Lisette knew for certain:

  1. Monsters are real.
  2. She was madly in love with Briz Nolan.
  3. The American poet e.e. cummings was right. It takes courage to grow up and become who you really are.

Jaden never imagined she might not live to see her sixteenth birthday, or that bonding with a feral pack of monsters could be her only chance of survival. After arriving to a small Louisiana town, Jaden meets Briz Nolan and envisions falling in love—until she stumbles upon a dangerous secret lurking on her ancestral property, causing a horrifying twist in the lives of the two would be lovers. To save her family, Jaden must befriend the feral creatures and eliminate them. But, as the days pass, she wonders, who is her real family…her mother and sister, or the monsters?

Hiding from the world was the only life Violet had ever known. What other choice did a genetic experiment who happened to resemble a fairy have? If found, she would be killed and dissected. Wouldn’t she? After a lifetime of living in the shadows, Violet was about to find out.

Thrust into a world beyond the four walls she’d always known as home, Violet has to fend for herself. Staying out of sight is vital to her survival, but maybe being found is just what Violet needs to discover herself.
