Lady Tanglewood: A Novella (A Serving Magic Story)
Nari knows the rumors about Arrowood. Forbidden magic. Illegal crossbreeding. Strange howls in the night. Should she go through with the wedding anyway?
As Nari rides toward Arrowood and her new home, her head is elsewhere. Soon, she will be marrying the clan chief’s handsome son.
Their rites of binding must go off without a hitch. Every detail of the ceremony needs to demonstrate unity between the two rival clans, as Nari of Tanglewood weds Mordahn of Arrowood.
Nari hears the sound of horses’ hooves pounding the trail up ahead and frowns. Why is her fiancé riding out to greet her, here in this isolated stretch of road, wearing chainmail and bearing arms?

Lady Apprentice (A Serving Magic Book, Volume One)
Her homeland under siege. A dark sorcerer hot on her trail. All the prophecies say Linden can stop him. Who are they kidding?
Linden is the worst mage apprentice at her school. Her latest disaster: accidentally destroying her classroom when a small hooded fay pops up inside the fireball she’s just conjured.
Linden is sent to the headmaster’s office to be formally expelled, when she is saved by the bell—quite literally. Someone is frantically ringing the bell inside the watchtower overlooking the western frontier. Raiders are coming, in broad daylight, wearing the uniforms of the enemy army.
In the days following the raid, rumors begin to fly about the invading commander, with dark powers and an even darker mission. And for some reason Linden has yet to fathom, he’s taken a personal interest in her and her unruly magic.

Lady Mage (A Serving Magic Book, Volume Two)
Old fay magic. A new clan chief. And a crooked necromancer—has he brought back Linden’s worst nightmare?
Although Linden is now a Master Mage, she’s struggling to adjust to her new duties. Her advisors are more concerned with keeping her safe than listening to her warnings about the dark magic gathering along the borders.
But that all changes when a fay scout delivers shocking news: Mordahn has returned from beyond the grave. Even worse, he’s discovered the ancient places of power, which are fueling his war machine.
Linden must team up with Mordahn’s arrogant nephew to destroy the places of power—but will they be able to save their homeland before it’s too late?

Everyone agrees with Linden’s plan to take the fight to Mordahn—everyone except the handsome, obstinate Chief of Arrowood. Linden and the clan chief part on bitter terms.

A dark fay uprising. A dashing fay wizard. And a growing anti-magic movement. Are Mara’s blades sharp enough to cut through such a tangled web?
By day, Mara runs a clockwork toyshop. By night, she spies for the resistance. The last thing Mara needs is a ridiculously handsome fay to train in customer service and spy craft.
Arnesto is persistent, bedazzling, and a twelfth-level fay wizard. He also casts spells in all the wrong places, talks more than he listens, and manages to get himself arrested. Mara is giving the incompetent fay one more chance to prove himself.
When a fresh threat imperils both the human and fay realms, Mara and Arnesto must fight together. But are swords, magic, and a scrap of prophecy enough to save the kingdom?

Lady Reaper (A Serving Magic Book, Volume Five)
Mara’s magic has stopped working—at the worst possible time! With chasms opening in the streets of Bellaryss and rumors of chaos in the lower realms, should Mara seek help from the king of the elves?
After rescuing thirty people, including Arnesto, from the dark fays, Mara’s physical injuries are healed—but her magic has never recovered—and her ensorcelled sword no longer responds to her touch.
Even worse, Mara’s heart is bruised by Arnesto’s long absences and rambling explanations.
Arnesto, however, has problems of his own. His brother’s spirit—along with many others in the lower realms—can’t cross over to the far shore—and Arnesto blames himself.
Mara must find a way to work with Arnesto despite their differences and misunderstandings. But can she gain admittance to the elven king, find a cure for her magic, and save both worlds—the living and the dead—before time runs out?
