The first three full novels in the Southern Arcana Series:
Crux: A woman's discovery of her supernatural heritage plunges her into the midst of a new and terrifying world, one where her past defines her destiny and falling in love with the wrong man--like the spell-slinging investigator who sets her heart racing--could be her downfall.
Crossroads: Duty and desire stand on opposite sides of the fine line a shapeshifter princess must walk. Falling in love is dangerous enough. Falling in love with a man who was turned into a wolf instead of born as one means risking everything--her family, her heart...and possibly his life.
Deadlock: A human daughter isn't of much value to a shapeshifter family unless magic can wake her inner wolf. But playing with powerful spells is dangerous. The only man who can help her is the most powerful wolf in New Orleans--and her family's enemy.
How do you make a Moira Rogers? Take a former forensic science and nursing student obsessed with paranormal romance and add a computer programmer with a passion for gritty urban fantasy. Toss in a dash of whimsy and a lot of caffeine, and enjoy with a side of chocolate by the light of the full moon.
By day, Bree and Donna are mild-mannered ladies who reside in the Deep South. At night, when their husbands and children are asleep, they combine forces to unleash the product of their fevered imaginations upon the page.
I loved the supernatural aspect and the in depth looks into the political side of ruling the sups. This book has it all. Love, romance, intrigue, and danger, just to mention a few. Well worth reading and looking forward to the rest.
This first set of books covers the major players and how the interrelate with one another. It covers the outdated old boys network, the greed and power of the ruling families and the desire by the younger generation to change it.
I'd already read the first one in this trilogy, but since the omnibus edition was free I figured it was ok to "only" get two new titles.
The writing here is very uneven. The first one didn't feel like it was going to turn into part of a larger, very political story-arc. The time spent on the political stuff ramps up through the three stories, but unfortunately the world-building doesn't really support the weight of all the political stuff. I found the political stuff rather interesting, but missed the world-building. We're all glad for a lack of info-dumping, but you can build a world without resorting to dumps.
Still, the arc of the political stuff was interesting enough that I could someday get around to the second trilogy (especially if I can find it for free). I do, however, really hate omnibus editions on e-readers - which has nothing to do with this or any other particular story, and everything to do with me as a reader!
This is paranormal at its greatest. There's love, action, wild sexual encounters and much more in these three books. Seeing the stories unfold and seeing the love blossom was amazing. You could feel the love in every word
