The Underworld Series
(Formerly the Jolie Wilkins, Sinjin Sinclair and Mists of Magic & Mayhem Series)
Book 1: Fire Burn and Cauldron Bubble
A self-deprecating witch with the unique ability to reanimate the dead.
A dangerously handsome warlock torn between being her boss and her would-be lover.
A six hundred year old English vampire with his own agenda; one that includes an appetite for witches.
The Underworld in a state of chaos.
Let the games begin.
Life isn’t bad for psychic Jolie Wilkins. True, she doesn’t have a love life to speak of, but she has a cute house in the suburbs of Los Angeles, a cat and a quirky best friend.
Enter Rand Balfour, a sinfully attractive warlock who insists she’s a witch and who just might turn her life upside down. Rand hires her to help him solve a mystery regarding the death of his client who also happens to be a ghost. Jolie not only uncovers the cause of the ghost’s demise but, in the process, she brings him back to life!
Word of Jolie’s incredible ability to bring back the dead spreads like wildfire, putting her at the top of the Underworld’s most wanted list. Consequently, she finds herself at the center of a custody battle between a villainous witch, a dangerous but oh-so-sexy vampire, and her warlock boss, Rand.
Book 2: Toil and Trouble
The Underworld in civil war.
The cause? A witch who can reanimate the dead.
A sexy as sin vampire determined to claim her.
An infuriatingly handsome warlock torn between duty and love.
Who says blonds have more fun?
After defending herself against fairy magic, Jolie Wilkins wakes to find her world turned upside down—the creatures of the Underworld on the precipice of war. The Underworld is polarized in a battle of witch against witch, creature against creature, led by the villainous Bella, who would be Queen.
While Jolie has one goal in mind, to stake the vampire, Ryder, who nearly killed her, she also must choose between the affections of her warlock employer, Rand, and the mysteriously sexy vampire, Sinjin.
And as if that weren’t enough to ruin a girl’s day, everything Jolie knows will be turned inside out when she’s thrust into the shock of a lifetime.
Book 3: Witchful Thinking
Jolie thinks she’s seen it all, but life continues to spring surprises.
The latest shocker? She’s just been crowned Queen of the Underworld.
Jolie may possess a rare gift for reanimating the dead, but she doesn’t know the first thing about governing disparate factions of supernatural creatures. She can barely maintain order in her own chaotic personal life, which is heading into a romantic tailspin.
First there’s sexy warlock Rand, the love of her life, from whom Jolie is hiding a devastating secret.
Then there’s Sinjin, a darkly seductive vampire and Jolie’s sworn protector—though others suspect he harbors ulterior motives.
As the two polar opposite yet magnetic men vie for Jolie’s affection, she must keep her wits about her to balance affairs of state and affairs of her heart.
Overwhelmed, under pressure, and longing for love, Jolie decides it’s time to take charge—and show everyone that this queen won’t take jack.
Book 4: The Witch Is Back
Funny and feisty witch Jolie Wilkins is back—or rather, she’s back to her humble beginnings.
Propelled into the past to her old Los Angeles fortune-telling shop, Jolie has no idea she possesses extraordinary powers, and she definitely doesn’t remember becoming Queen of the Underworld.
But at least she has two incredibly sexy men vying for her affection: Rand Balfour, who looks very familiar, though Jolie can’t place his gorgeous face, and Sinjin Sinclair, who is tall, dark, and perfect . . . except for the fangs.
Yet despite her steamy love life, Jolie can’t shake the sense that something is not quite right—like she’s stuck in a déjà vu gone terribly awry.
As both men race against time—and each other—to win Jolie’s heart, the fate of the Underworld hangs in the balance.
And Jolie’s decision can either restore order or create an absolute, drop-dead disaster.
Book 5: Something Witchy This Way Comes
For smart and sexy witch Jolie Wilkins, being Queen of the Underworld is a royal pain.
Back from a round of time travel, Jolie must now protect her realm from the sinister Lurkers—a powerful breed of half-humans bent on conquering the undead.
And if there’s one thing she knows, it’s that the supernatural never go down without a fight.
At least Jolie has her soul mate (and finally official boyfriend), warlock Rand Balfour, by her side.
Honorable, brave, and unbelievably handsome, Rand is everything Jolie wants in a man.
So why can’t she forget the dangerously alluring vampire, Sinjin Sinclair?
With her private life heating up and a battle boiling over, Jolie sets out to prove that in matters of love and war, the fairer hex has its own set of charms.
Book 6: Novella: Be Witched
While the undead wage a brutal civil war, Rand Balfour has only one thing on his mind: protecting his true love, Jolie Wilkins, the savvy and spirited witch whose powers have made her the toast—and target—of the new Underworld order.
For Rand, keeping Jolie safe means guarding against allies and enemies alike.
First there’s Sinjin Sinclair, a dangerously seductive vampire who has his fangs set on Jolie, and who Rand suspects of harboring a sinister agenda.
Then there are the factions of supernatural creatures causing chaos at every turn.
But most shocking is Rand himself, whose wild desire for Jolie may put her very life at risk.
Torn between his duty and his passion, Rand must summon all his strength to withstand temptation, even if it costs him the one woman he cannot bear to lose.
Book 7: Sinjin
Abandoned on the battlefield by the people she calls her tribe, Bryn must face the fact that she is now playing prisoner to the Queen of the Underworld, who also happens to be her fraternal twin sister.
As the days and months go by with no word from the Supreme Elder of her tribe, Bryn thinks her life couldn’t get much worse.
While Bryn bemoans her imprisonment, her sister, Jolie, is doing everything in her power to ensure that blood ties are thicker than they appear. Jolie wants nothing more than to befriend Bryn and teach her not to hate the Underworld, but to embrace it.
But Bryn fights the very idea of becoming one with her enemies, although she can’t help her attraction to a certain six-hundred-year-old English vampire, Sinjin Sinclair.
Once Bryn is placed in Sinjin’s care, she’ll find herself battling the undeniable magnetism of the vampire, the one creature she abhors above all others.
Sinjin’s quick wit, his indisputable sex appeal, and the mystery that surrounds him all point to the fact that if Bryn falls for him, she’ll be in over her head. But, as a warrior through and through, Bryn isn’t the type to fall for anything, especially a handsome face. If anyone should be able to withstand the lure of the vampire, Bryn appears to be the likeliest candidate.
Of course, looks can be deceiving…
Book 8: The Scent
When Bryn’s loyalty to her own people is tested, the decision she makes will change the course of her life forever…
Truth be told, Bryn isn’t really sure where her loyalties lie. Of one thing she’s sure, though, is that her fraternal twin sister, Jolie, who also happens to be the Queen of the Underworld, should be her sworn enemy.
But after spending months with Jolie, Bryn can’t deny the fact that she genuinely cares for her sister, much though she shouldn’t.
If it weren’t maddening enough that her relationship with Jolie is anything but black and white, then there’s Sinjin.
Cool, calm and calculated, Sinjin Sinclair is everything Bryn imagines she should find reprehensible in a man.
First of all, he’s a master vampire and all vampires, in Bryn’s mind, are nothing more than bloodsucking parasites.
Secondly, his unflagging cockiness when paired with his boyish charm is enough to irritate any sensible woman. Mostly, though, it’s Sinjin’s unapologetic sexuality that Bryn finds extremely off-putting… and, well, somewhat entertaining and possibly even exhilarating...
After Bryn purposely botches her leader’s attack on Jolie, Bryn finds herself returned to her old life, a life she thought she’d wanted.
But the old adage, “be careful what you wish for because you might get it,” will take on new meaning once she finds herself playing hostage to her own people.
Book 9: Novella: Blood Lust
Please note: Because Blood Lust is a novella, it isn't as long as the other books in this series.
This novella falls in chronological order and should be heard after The Scent.
Blood Lust, written in the perspective of gallant and undead gentleman, Sinjin Sinclair, picks up right where the second book in the series, The Scent, leaves off.
Sinjin is understandably irate over the treatment Bryn received when she was taken hostage by those who were once her own people.
Even though Sinjin was able to rescue Bryn and Betta after their escape attempt and deliver them to the safety of Queen Jolie, it is clear that Bryn's pain runs deep.
Sinjin wants nothing more than to help Bryn heal but she will have none of it, instead growing cold and distant.
Outraged that he is unable to break through Bryn's walls, Sinjin takes matters into his own hands when he decides to avenge her....
Book 10: The Gentleman
In the third installment of the Bryn and Sinjin series, Bryn finds herself in a sweat after a horrific dream.
In it, Kinloch Kirk is destroyed and everyone she cares about is dead. Worst of all, she can't shrug away the feeling that the dream isn't just a dream but a vision of what's to come.
Throw in the hauntingly familiar stranger, Dureau Chevalier, who just happens to be incredibly sexy and Bryn finds herself at a crossroads. Does she continue with the promise she made herself to avoid all men or does she acknowledge her interest in Dureau?
And what about Sinjin--the vampire who has definitely lodged himself in her heart and head? With the impending doom of a visionary dream still waiting to unfold, Bryn finds herself stuck between two men's affections.
Book 11: The Flame
While Bryn professes to be nothing more than a warrior, her feelings for Master Vampire, Sinjin Sinclair, can’t be denied.
But neither can her feelings for Dureau Chevalier, the enigmatic man who has appeared in her dreams since she was a child.
As Sinjin and Dureau continue to pursue Bryn, she finds herself wondering if maybe there is room for love in her heart. But who will she choose?
Unfortunately for Bryn, her love troubles aren’t the only troubles to plague her.
Even more important is her belief that there’s a traitor in her sister’s court, someone who is feeding information to Luce, public enemy number one.
As the future of Kinloch Kirk becomes more and more unclear, Bryn will have to figure out the best way to bring the fight to Luce.
Book 12: The Suitor
A war between the creatures of the Underworld and those who would see them extinct,
A woman desperately trying to understand and control her powers,
A seductive and charming vampire who serves as her protector, but hungers for much more,
And the man who steps out of her childhood dreams into her waking days with secrets of his own……
After a surprise attack on home soil leaves Queen Jolie and her court reeling, locating enemy forces becomes priority Number One.
Desperate to prevent another attack, and with nothing to go on but a vision from a dream, Bryn leads a scouting party to find the enemy stronghold.
The hunt takes Bryn, Sinjin, Dureau, and Damek to a land ruled by fae magic where the cost of admission might be more than they bargained for.
Book 13: The Awakening
While returning from a scouting mission to attempt to locate Luce’s camp, Bryn stumbles on a wolf-girl strapped to a rack and left for dead.
Once rescued, the girl, Dayna, tells Bryn and company all about the newest flavor of Luce’s evil and, most specifically, what Luce plans to do to Bryn, if he ever takes her as prisoner again…
And Bryn’s time in Luce’s breeding program will pale in comparison to the newest torture he’s devised…
Upon returning to the queen and Kinloch Kirk, a new arrival starts heating up the scene and making waves. Audrey Chevalier, Dureau’s beautiful French sister, seems to be overly interested in Master Vampire, Sinjin Sinclair.
And unless Bryn’s mistaken, Sinjin appears to return Audrey’s affections.
Will this budding new romance push Bryn into the arms of Dureau? Or will it make her second guess her decision to avoid a romantic attachment with Sinjin?
Meanwhile, Jolie continues to gain allies as it appears the Underworld is soon to go to battle with Luce’s forces yet again.
That is, until Dureau informs Bryn about the true nature of her ancestry, information which could absolutely change the tide of the war for all involved.
And, prepare yourself, for an ending to this book that will leave you speechless…
Book 14: The Champion
When Bryn finds out she’s pregnant, she’ll have to deal with the fact that Sinjin doesn’t believe the baby is his—how could it be? He’s a vampire, after all, and incapable of reproducing. At least that’s what everyone thought…
As if dealing with Sinjin isn’t enough, Bryn and Dureau have decided to move forward with their plan to contact Luce’s tribespeople through their dreams.
Bryn and Dureau both hope to enlighten Luce’s people that they’ve been fed nothing but lies and that a better future awaits them if they agree to join Jolie’s court.
But, that plan doesn’t exactly go as Bryn and Dureau hoped it would…
How will Dureau respond when he finds out Bryn’s pregnant?
And what happens when Bryn and Dureau are forced to accept the help of Monsieur D?
And will Sinjin ever believe he’s the father of Bryn’s child?
Book 15: The Changeling
Something is wrong with Bryn and Sinjin’s baby. Whereas once Bryn could feel the baby’s emotions, now she can’t feel anything.
Sinjin will find himself traveling to Africa in his search to discover what evil is threatening his child.
To make matters worse, Kinloch Kirk is under a magical attack.
The question remains: by whom? Half the constituents of Jolie’s council believe the newly relocated Daywalkers are the one responsible, but others aren’t so sure.
Book 16: The Lost Child
After realizing their infant daughter has been spirited away to the land of Faery by the Fir Darrig, one of the Unseelie Court, Bryn and Sinjin decide to go after her.
Luckily, they have Odran, Klaasje and Dureau by their side.
But once they locate the baby, Sinjin and Dureau are taken hostage by the Darrig and its Unseelie cohorts while the others are forced to find their own way back.
Forced to separate from Sinjin, Bryn thinks her luck can’t get any worse… that is, until they return to Kinloch Kirk...
Book 17: Shadow Phantoms
The order of the Underworld is no longer…
Where once factions of creatures—vampires, witches and warlocks, werewolves and fae—all came together, united under the banner of Queen Jolie, now those factions are separate and vying for control.
The vampires, unified under the authority of Master Vampire, Sinjin Sinclair, are living a life of hedonistic opulence aboard three cruise ships on the open water. Sinjin, bemoaning the loss of his one true love, can find little interest in anything else. But there’s a threat on the horizon and one which will force Sinjin out of his melancholic lamenting…
Meanwhile, the witches and warlocks have been separated into two factions: The King’s Alliance, commanded by ruthless High Mage, Duine, and The Order of the Templar, a band of rebels, led by Pagan. While Duine seeks to control all witches and warlocks, subjecting them to his tyrannical rule, Pagan wishes to return magic to the hands of the people.
Amid the chaos of attempted assassinations and battle, is Emma Balfour. Now seventeen, Emma is attending the highly prestigious Elmington Academy—a school of magic. Unlike her witch mother and warlock father, Emma is anything but magical and finds her time at Elmington a struggle. That is until she meets enigmatic Stone Draper. Stone is handsome, young, and charismatic and Emma finds herself immediately taken with him. There’s only one problem… Stone Draper is actually Professor Draper, Emma’s instructor.
Book 18: Circle Of The Moon
Sinjin Sinclair might have been estranged from his family and friends, but that doesn’t mean he stopped caring about them. Learning of a possible threat to his niece, Emma, Sinjin has his own card to play.
Meanwhile, Emma finds herself increasingly attracted to her professor, Stone, who might not be all he appears. Then there’s also charismatic Clark who seems to be vying for her attention.
And what will it mean for Bryn when she receives a visionary dream where she learns her sister, Jolie, long suspected to be dead, might actually be alive and lost in a place called the Abyss?
Book 19: Hallowed Flames
Sinjin Sinclair now has a mission—to ensure Bryn is safe. But he'll have to worry about his own safety when his ships get attacked by the Vryloka.
Meanwhile, Emma finds herself the object of a ghostly attack.
After losing more of his men, Pagan makes a decision to the shock of his second in command—to seek out the rebel forces leader, Nyx, in the hopes of joining forces.
And why does High Mage Duine continue to receive haunting dreams of a woman with golden hair who makes him feel... whole and happy again?
Book 20: Hush Of Ruin

Meanwhile, Emma continues to try to understand who sent a killer spirit after her. And the one person who can help her solve the mystery just happens to be her incredibly handsome and sexy professor...
