Trying to Break Curses in All the Wrong Places

I knew breaking up with my boyfriend would hurt, but I didn’t think it would kill me…
Liv had never really been into her boyfriend. She hadn’t seen a reason not to date him, but that didn’t really last long.
But then it turned out that not only was magic real, but he managed to curse her!
Now she’s on her way to Ember Academy for Magical Beings, because apparently she has magic as well, and according to the terms of the curse, she has to find someone to love in next year or… Well, she doesn’t exactly want to find out…

Ember Academy For Young Witches Prequel

Breaking the most sacred rule in the vampire world has consequences…

Natalie hadn’t meant to bite her best friend.

She really hadn’t.

But she did, and a young vampire who can’t control herself is a danger.

Under most circumstances, Natalie would be locked away until she was deemed old enough to take a willing human as a thrall.

But the witches have just opened a school to help their young to control their powers, and Natalie is part-witch.

Maybe Ember Academy could be the home that the human world never was…

Ember Academy for Young Witches: Book One

Ancient curses. Blocked memories. And an Academy for young witches that might just hold the answers.

I should have known something was wrong when my weird aunt arrived in town just as I started getting killer headaches.

But how was I supposed to know that it was a sign of repressed magic?

Or that an ancient witch had escaped her tomb and sent demons after me?

Demons who cursed my mother.

I wanted to stay with her, even if she wouldn’t wake, but I was sent to Ember Academy for Young Witches instead. Somewhere the demons hopefully can’t get me.

I need to find a way to lift the curse, but there’s a block on both my magic and memories that everyone is refusing to lift.

A block that might hold the answers as to why an ancient witch is after me in the first place.

If I can figure her out, maybe I can figure out this curse.

My teachers don’t want me digging into it, worried about the danger.

But I don’t care.

My mother was cursed because of me, and I’m not going to rest until she’s safe again.

BASICS OF SPELLCRAFT is the first book in the Ember Academy for Young Witches YA Urban Fantasy Academy series. If you love kick-ass heroines, Sapphic slow-burn romances, and magical boarding schools, you’ll love this latest fast-paced series in L.C. Mawson’s Snowverse.

Advanced Demonology

What’s the point of having a mother who can see the future if she won’t help you fix your brother’s mistakes?

So, it was clear that my best friend, Skye, was going to confess her feelings for my brother, and then he went and told her that he was following me to Ember Academy for Magical Beings, instead of going to human university with her until she came into her magic.

He seems to think that I still need him, and nothing I say will convince him otherwise.

But maybe the word of our mother, who can see the future, will be enough.

Except she refuses to tell us anything about the future, which leaves me with just one option: use my time at Ember to find a way to break into her study, read her journals, and prove that my brother and Skye are destined to be together.

It can’t be that hard to outsmart a powerful demon who can see the future, right?

ADVANCED DEMONOLOGY is a prequel novella to the Ember Academy for Magical Beings new adult slow-burn reverse harem urban fantasy academy series, introducing some of the main characters and also giving a glimpse into the future.

But when another conspired to steal her place, she was disgraced and 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…

The Royal Cleaner: Book One

Caroline doesn’t remember her crime.

One moment, she’s a Lady of the Demon Court.

The next, she’s sent to Earth as punishment.

Her task? Keep the humans from learning about magic at all costs. Even if it means doing the one thing she’s worst at – dealing with other people.

Detective Mina Sharma is determined to prove herself.

Her new promotion is the one thing going right in her life as a newly-divorced single mother, and she’s not going to let anything stop her from solving her first case.

Not even the aloof and enigmatic blonde with crimson eyes telling her to drop it if she values her life.

Especially not when this Caroline is just as much of a puzzle to solve as the case itself.

And Mina has always loved puzzles.

Freya Snow: Book One

Freya has been alone as long as she can remember.

Always moving from foster home to foster home, never finding a permanent family.

An outburst of impossible magic, and the appearance of a ghostly guardian Freya’s mother tasked with watching over her.

With her newfound abilities, finding her father should finally be within Freya’s reach, but her new guardian cautions restraint.

Freya still doesn’t understand the magical world, she claims, or its dangers.

If Freya wants the truth, it may mean going it alone once more.

And putting her guardian’s warnings to the test.

Freya Snow: Books One to Three

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.

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?

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.

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.

Aspects: Book One

A hero’s life means death.

Claire never wanted to be a hero.

The Aspect Guardians protect the last cities of Earth from the creatures that were left there by their alien ancestors.

Remnants of a forgotten civil war.

Claire is all too familiar with the alien creatures. They killed her mother, leaving her all alone.

But those chosen can’t refuse. The Aspect powers embody emotions, and those most in tune with those emotions are called to take the mantle.

And they’re lucky to survive more than two years.

Some Aspects aren’t even that lucky, however, and the Aspect of Love is notorious for only having a few months at best.

So, when the Aspect of Love dies and Claire is chosen as her successor, all of her nightmares are made real.

She must face the monsters of her childhood. And they will likely kill her.

But strength comes in unlikely places, and finding the means to survive may mean Love turning to Hate.

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 Lady 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.

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.

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.
