Rei would do anything for those she loves.

As her best friend, Abby, struggles to cope with the sudden loss of her husband, Rei and her closest girlfriends take her to a beautiful lakeside house nestled in the forests of the Pacific Northwest, hoping that a weekend of support from long-time friends will help Abby along her road of emotional recovery.

But as the young women get settled, Rei begins to notice there’s something wrong with the place. Could this peaceful, idyllic location be hiding an ancient evil below the waters of the lake? Or are the problems wholly within Abby herself, who seems to be losing her grip on reality? When unexplainable, nightmarish things occur, Rei realizes this weekend getaway may turn into their last outing.

DESCRIPTION:

Andreas de Wolfe is the second-eldest de Wolfe grandchild. Son of Troy, he has inherited his father’s comely looks, his aggression, and his talent with a sword. The man is born for battle. But he is picky when it comes to women, the reason he’s not yet married. Unfortunately, when he does fall for a woman, Andreas sets himself up for a hell of a situation… and it could cost him everything.

It’s an all-out battle on the Scottish Marches as the de Wolfe Pack is called to war, the prize being Andreas’ very life.

Having been sent to London on business, Andreas de Wolfe finds himself in a unique position when his task is finished – leisure time. Seeking a diversion, he ends up in a mysterious underground gambling establishment that is full of scandalous, and dangerous, behavior. Those who enter must wear masks and names are never to be revealed. Anonymity prevails.

Enter Gavriella de Leia.

A beautiful young woman with a tortured past, Gavriella is brought to the gambling establishment by her ribald cousins. In her haste to find an exit from the terrible place, she runs into Andreas, who can see through the mask to the frightened young lady beyond. He calms her and an easy flirtation develops. Not even the masks can conceal the powerful attraction building between them. They make a date to discover the truth about one another, but Gavriella never shows up.

Andreas returns home, despondent.

Three months later, Andreas is called with the de Wolfe army to defend a lesser ally from a vicious enemy and Andreas realizes the daughter of the ally is, in fact, his beloved mystery woman. Her father is a long-time ally riddled with madness, and Gavriella is out of her element trying to handle his affairs. Andreas wants to know why she never showed up that day in London, but the truth is more than he bargained for.

In fact, there is something much more sinister afoot.

The truth behind Gavriella is far darker than Andreas could have imagined and he soon finds himself swept up in the horror she is linked to. In the lowlands of Scotland a devil lives, one that wants Gavriella for his very own and will stop and nothing to get her.

It’s all swords on deck to help Andreas save the only woman he has ever loved… or die trying.

DESCRIPTION:

Is happiness a universal concept? People, who had survived the near apocalyptic experience, seem to believe that it is.

What if life after a disastrous event that almost shuttered the world into pieces would not be doomed to dim, grey picture we are used to believe it would? What if people learn from their mistakes and decide to build a whole new world full of pleasure, easiness and happiness for all?

Tauria, aged 32, lives in such a world. It is designed to make everyone feel happy every minute of their lives. Work brings satisfaction, hobbies are encouraged, relationships are supposed to bring out only positive emotions. Does it matter that things that do not fit into the general happy pattern get discarded and disappear? Things like friendship and commitment. Things like true love. Is it enough with lightness and never-ending joy?

The apocalyptic event that had changed the world forever, had done more than that. There are two worlds now, forced to exist side by side. Can they find a way to live together?

One meeting, insignificant in itself, as all meetings of two people are, promises huge changes. Is the world – the worlds – ready to accept them?

The Chinese proverb says: “When the winds of change blow, some people build walls and others build windmills.” What will the people of two worlds, so utterly different and at the same time so similar, choose?
