The Open Portal
Bullied and lonely, teenager Mona Parker’s plan to end her life is interrupted when her guardian angel appears one night. He brings her a proposition.
Swap your life with another.
Mona agrees and awakens on Meredith, a magical world filled with flying horses, gnomes, and faeries. Now, Alexandria Duvalier, the beautiful daughter of a wealthy Duke, servants wait on her every whim. Sought after by scores of men, love—once a laughable prospect—is now finally within reach. Then her fresh and happy life comes crashing down. Her new world has a dark and deadly side.
And if she is not very careful, it will kill her.
A beautiful witch with a violent past, forms an unlikely love affair with a compassionate young doctor…until she fears she may end up killing him.
Tressalayne is a member of a murderous witches’ coven. An attack by witch hunters forces the coven to escape through a hastily constructed portal of magic. Ripped from her medieval world, the portal hurls Tressalayne and the coven’s leader, Morganna, into present day East Texas.
Critically injured in the passage, Tressalayne awakes in a hospital with no memory of her previous life.
Lucas Beckett finds himself in charge of the mysterious patient’s recuperation, and soon develops more than just a medical interest in her recovery. However, their blossoming relationship is marred by Tressalayne’s nightmarish flashbacks and uncontrolled manifestations of magic.
Can their life together survive this collision of past and present? As Tressalayne’s struggles continue, other threats emerge to loom over the young couple, and the stage is set for a final confrontation.
Murderous intent, or love and devotion? Only one can survive and The Janus Witch must decide.
Intent on defeating the Dark Queen and destroying the Veil, Prince Tal and Alexandria arrive at Markingham to discover a city on the verge of collapse, its people starving, and children vanishing without a trace. Hopes of launching attacks from the city against the Dark Queen evaporate.
To make matters worse, the tiny breach in the Veil allows only a trickle of soldiers and supplies to pass through. Before the city’s defenses can be restored, the Baleful, a vast army composed of melded humans and animals led by a giant centaur, sweeps across the land like locusts, leaving nothing behind.
In the midst of turmoil and conflict, the love between Tal and Alex reaches white-hot intensity. But the leader of a renegade militia group wants Tal for herself and will do anything to get him…even strike a bargain with a child-killing witch for a potion to make her irresistible.
But every witch’s brew comes with a price.
