Soula Deveraine wants to make the most of her Second Hunt. It’s been ten years since the last disaster and this year, she’s determined to court or be courted in the eight-week event. When Soula stumbles into a kidnapping gone wrong, she awakens a decades-old feud between the Deveraine and Vaughn Clans. Her bad luck continues with a rejected Soulbond, a mysterious cursed diary and the handsome Orion Kuroe who doesn’t fit any of her daydreams. Can she survive the danger—or worse, the heartbreak?


Orion Kuroe isn’t looking for love anywhere—he doesn’t have the time or heart to spare. His latest clue is a cursed diary with vital information to his inter-realm investigation. Translating it is top priority, but he isn’t prepared for the translator to be gorgeous trouble-magnet Soula Deveraine. He needs her help, he doesn’t want her heart—but is that choice really up to him?


Sands of Time is a slow-burn RH adventure with a hint of romance and plenty of fantastical magic.

Treasured Sands (SOULA DEVERAINE #2)


Helping Zoe Caranthe is a favor Saera can't refuse. Old debts are resurfacing and she can't outrun them again. Caught between fragile new friendships and increasingly dangerous assignments, Saera teeters on the edge of a fractured past that could ruin everything. Between old memories, Zoe’s schemes and Soula's awkward attempts at courtship, her instincts flip to survival mode.


Accepting Soula might be the anchor she craves, but can she risk her heart one more time? 


For Soula, playing with time is getting risky. Especially when she can't get Saera out of her mind—or her heart. When Saera's unexpected guest becomes a volatile variable, there's too many unexpected horrors. Bonding with Orion hasn't solved any of the problems she'd expected and Saera is the grounding influence she needs. 

Can she balance a reluctant courtship before her time-manipulation unravels them both?

Shifting Sands (SOULA DEVERAINE #3)


Garren doesn’t understand how he wound up escorting Soula to the Exhibition Hall for the famed Botanical Gardens Event, in addition to his own entry, he’s hiding the truth of an experimental antidote for Lady Arsenic.


Soula knows that requesting a favor means it can be recalled at the worst time—and it is. She has hundreds of better things to do than let to Carson boss her around as a temporary tour guide. Except—Garren is the one ‘porting her back and forth and maybe, he’s not so bad after all. 


But he doesn’t seem interested in courting her at all and his shadows—scare her. How can she court an uninterested Pareya without giving in to the need to rewind every interaction they have?


Can she sort things out on her own? Or will rewinding her problems fix everything? 

Sorrowful Sands (SOULA DEVERAINE #4)


Ryder doesn’t need any more complications where Soula Deveraine is concerned. Unfortunately, his enemies don’t care about that. Between juggling the ongoing investigation, his information network’s breakdown and Soula’s recent attempts to help—he’s got his claws full. Too full to do anything about the incoming threat. 


Soula’s not sure she can keep on ignoring the changes between her potential soulmates and the increasing unease from the side effects of Ryder’s investigations. When her normal workday is turned upside down because of him—things might not be so simple ever again. 


Can he accept Soula’s help? Or will her presence make everything worse? Can she accept what he has to offer? Or will her heart shatter for good this time?

Soula Deveraine _ Book Two-2.png

Or does it? 

With Petra's renewed scrutiny, Soula will have her claws full! 

Character cards & series extras!



Soula Deveraine is the youngest daughter of Lady Ilsa Deveraine, Blood Title holder within the famous Elven Royal Circle. 

The fame of her family's Circle (and her siblings!), have overshadowed her long enough. For her second Hunt, Soula decides to go all out--she'll court someone herself, or be courted in turn. 

This Hunt, will be memorable

Meet Soula's Intended Alpha - Ryder Arrington


Ryder Arrington keeps the kinds of secrets that get other people killed. Death is something of an annoyance on account of his Necromancer title. 

Orion Kuroe is helping to bring a strange mystery to a satisfying end and that's all that matters. The Hunt is underway and things are getting boring. 


There's just one loose end--and what was that about a soulbond

Meet Soula's Intended Beta - Orion Kuroe-Orseno


Orion Kuroe-Orseno is the youngest son of the famed Lord Orseno, one of the reigning triads among the Earth Clan Chiefs. 

He's not looking for love or heartbreak, this hunting season. He's keeping his head down and his heart hide, while doing what he does best--uncover secrets that right the balance between good and evil. 

He just needs one more clue.

Meet Soula's Intended Gheyo King - Saera Carrowytch


Saera isn't interested in getting in the middle of whatever is going on with Soula and the rest of the crew. She's fairly happy minding her own business and rank. 

It's just that Soula's really cute. 

Really cute. 

And maybe it wouldn't be so bad to have her around after all...

Meet Soula's Intended Gheyo Pareya - Garren Kracyen


Garren is NOT interested in Soula Deveraine at all. 

Not even a tiny bit. 

He's perfectly fine nursing his cold, deadened heart and trying not to get killed by whatever harebrained schemes Ryder throws his way. 

It's just that she's stubborn--and cute. A little too stubborn. 

Meet Soula's Intended Gheyo Queen - Petra McGlighten


Petra's starting to get a little tired of this. First, an unexpected Soulmate, then all of the crazy business with Ryder--and now, it's even worse-!

She's really not looking forward to the next couple of weeks. Especially since Soula seems to have set her sights on her...

Meet Soula's Intended Gheyo Prince - Tobien Mylgere


Tobien has a feeling he's next. 

Does he want to be? That's hard to tell. 

Especially when the rest of his Suite is split down the middle with some of them looking thrilled to the bone and others acting as if their world's ended. 

He's not really sure what he's going to do, because it seems like Soula's already figured that out for him.

There's just the pesky problem of a little secret he's been keeping from all of them--and it's about to come out in the open...
