Disgraced (A Royal Cleaner Prequel)

Lady Caroline of House Raven had once been meant to be Queen of the Underworld.

But when another conspired to steal her place, she had been disgraced and had fled to learn the ways of the Wardens of Maltess, deep in the mountains.

After five years, Caroline was at home with the Wardens.

But when word arrives that her brother, the head of their house has died, leaving her his only heir, Caroline must leave the Wardens and return to the pit of vipers she had once fled...

Target: A F/F Urban Fantasy Novel (The Royal Cleaner: Book One)

When Caroline swore a sacred oath to protect magic, she never anticipated falling for a human.

Caroline was used to Demons causing trouble, trying to toe the line of magical exposure to prompt the king into action against the humans. What she wasn't used to was them trying to destroy her city with a devastating curse.

Even more irritatingly, a new detective seems reluctant to simply hand over the investigation, and insists on following Caroline, despite it making her job nearly impossible.

The only thing that would make Caroline's job harder is if she actually started to fall for the detective, and Caroline had never been one to make things easy.

TARGET is an f/f paranormal romance novel set in L.C. Mawson's Snowverse.

Trapped (A Freya Snow Prequel)

Lily Snow awoke in a medical facility with no memory of who she was or how she came to be there, bloodied and battered.

She's told that she was attacked by magical beings, simply for being human. She's told that she's there for her own protection. She's told that the medicine she's taking is to help her recover.

But as her memories start to return, she's not so sure that any of that is true. Not to mention the ghost who keeps appearing, and telling her to get out. Before it's too late.

TRAPPED is a prequel to the Freya Snow series.

Hunt (Freya Snow: Book One)

When Freya said that she’d be shocked if she made it through the year without killing herself, that wasn’t an invitation for a demon to come and do it for her.

Being passed from foster home to foster home, with no real family or friends to call her own had always been kind of a drag, and after fourteen years, Freya Snow was just kind of done with her dreary existence.

But when a terrifying creature with bright red eyes and needle-like teeth starts following her, and a ghost appears, telling her that her mother died to keep magic a secret from the mortal world, Freya is suddenly determined to survive the strange new world she finds herself thrust into.

The only trouble is, she’s not sure that her new ghostly mentor is telling her everything, and her survival may very well depend on the truth. 

HUNT is a YA urban fantasy novel with a dash of sci-fi. It is the first book in the Freya Snow series.

The Freya Snow Pup Trilogy: Books 1-3

Soulbound usually either fall in love, or kill each other. The question is, which is their fate?

Follow Freya Snow, a young, sarcastic Angel, through her first few years as a Demon hunter in this three-book collection.

Hunt
After discovering her magical heritage, Freya is hunted down by a Demon, hellbent on using her death to increase his own power. With barely any training, can Freya truly escape unscathed?

White
When Freya's classmates start acting out fairy tales, with potentially deadly consequences, she finds herself in the middle of a fight with the Fae. As she finds herself cursed to play out Snow White, the question is if she can stop them before she falls asleep, because she's not sure her prince will come.

Wings
After the city experiences an excess of magic, Freya finds herself with physical wings, and her best friend (and crush), Damon, develops glowing red eyes. Physical manifestations of their powers. Not only is the boy she loves a Demon, he's the next in line for the demonic throne, and her Soulbound. But his father's looking for war, and stopping him may push Freya's trust of Damon to the limits.

The collection includes the first three Freya Snow novels (Hunt, White, and Wings) as well as the Short Story Collection and Family, the first short story following Freya’s sister Alice.

Loneliness/Justice (An Aspects Prequel)

"Fitting in" had never really appealed to Lex.

Not that she would be capable of it if it did, but she didn't care. Not when she had two friends by her side that she knew would never leave, right?

But living in a world of monsters, with only superpowered warriors to protect them, should have meant she knew better.

When her two only friends are called to join these warriors, she's left alone.

But maybe her loneliness is exactly what will save her...

Loneliness/Justice is a prequel to the Aspects YA sci-fi series.

Rebel (Engineered Rebel: Book One)

Alex was genetically engineered and trained from birth to hunt magical beings, but she left that life behind for the love of an angel.

But when fate, and Alex's former family, separate them, Alex is left with no choice. If she ever wants to be free - to stop running - she'll have to turn and fight those who raised her.

The question is, can she do it alone, or will she have to trust her former friends and siblings who may very well be spies for the enemy?

REBEL is the first book in the Engineered Rebel series and is part of L.C. Mawson's Snowverse.

The Almosts: A Snowverse Novella (The Almosts Trilogy: Book One)

A real job? In this economy? Maybe robbing banks isn’t such a terrible idea after all…

Kara had always been good with computers. She was autistic. Go figure. But when she finds herself caught in the middle of a bank heist and able to see impossible things, she starts to figure that there might be more to it than that.

After losing her job, she’s out of options, so when a woman appears in her house claiming to be some kind of witch, telling Kara that she has the ability to magically control machines, and offering her a job with her heist crew, Kara hesitates before throwing her out.

Maybe there are worse places for a quasi-magical autistic woman to be than on the wrong side of the law…

THE ALMOSTS is the first book in The Almosts Trilogy, a series of paranormal heist novellas set within L.C. Mawson’s urban fantasy Snowverse.

Lady Ruth Constance Chapelstone and the Clockwork Suitor (The Lady Ruth Constance Chapelstone Chronicles: Book One)

Lady Ruth Constance Chapelstone never cared much for boys.

She was too fixated on corsets or engines to give them much notice. An "inventor's disposition" is how her uncle referred to it when she would forget basic necessities, like food or sleep.

But proper ladies don't spend their days reinventing the steam engine, so Lady Ruth's uncle helped her to create a new persona - The Owl: Britain's Greatest Inventor!

The Owl is sought after but so is Lady Ruth, and making sure she remains free to pursue her inventions may every ounce of her cunning.

Lady Ruth Constance Chapelstone and the Clockwork Suitor is the first in a trilogy of steampunk novellas following Lady Ruth's adventures.
