Mostly Innocent—A Powers That Be Novel October 2018
Meet Layla James, your typical smart and snarky chick—except for the whole succubus thing. After nearly a millennium on Earth, Layla’s settled down in a boring life in Palm Springs, until a smoking-hot hunter comes to arrest her for murder. But Layla knows the rules—she'd never kill someone and incite the wrath of The Powers That Be.
Elijah Daines is a hunter, maintaining the balance of good and evil in the mortal realm, his power stronger than any hunter she’s ever encountered. Plus, he’s a seriously sexy distraction. Too bad he’s accused her of a crime she didn't commit.
As the killer continues a murder spree that not only frames Layla but threatens to expose the existence of supernatural creatures to humans, Layla and Elijah team up to investigate. Hopefully, they can fight off their escalating attraction for each other long enough to exonerate her and stop the murder madness.

After centuries of torturous isolation in her lamp, genie Celeste finds herself in gritty and tumultuous Colonial America. Her newest master, the Governor of Bateaux Bay, is vying to be king of the New World. Desperate to avoid returning to her lamp and believing herself to be enslaved, Celeste reluctantly becomes a pawn in the governor’s war. She strikes a deal with him—she’ll use her power to do more than simply grant three wishes if he agrees to give her freedom upon becoming king.
However, her plans go awry when she befriends the governor’s two sons, Cassius and Elias. In their own different ways, they help her—Elias by showing her love and Cassius by challenging her views. Seeing the implications of her master’s wishes—genocide of the indigenous people and impending war—she must decide if she will break her bargain for the betterment of the New World or selfishly keep her focus on her freedom.
