Q: Where did you get your inspiration for the League of Lords paranormal series? It sounds exciting! How are the books tied together?
I had a scene in my mind years ago. It's not actually a scene that is IN the book but rather described there. When the hero and heroine meet as children. I hesitate to strongly use the word paranormal--think psychics. With much of the similar Victorian historical wrapped around it.

The hero, Julian,...

Lord Bellweather's Lady
How does a lady escape a fate worse than death? When Augusta Furlough flees her vile brother to plead with the fairies to take her in, she's rescued by a handsome stranger on a huge, dark charger, and whisked away to his home. Grateful but suspicious of his motives, she's determined to leave and try the fairies once again. Lord Bellweather, the half-human liaison with the fairies, spent most of his youth in their realm. Now he's taking his place in the human world and must adapt to its peculiar customs. What better prospect for marriage than a delightful lady who understands human society and also believes in fairies? But it's not that simple, for Augusta is branded a madwoman, and Bellweather is also part hellhound, a ferocious otherworldly beast with which not even a desperate madwoman could fall in love.
The Price of Possession
When my family died at the hands of a demon prince, I hung up my exorcist hat. I'd failed to protect them, and while I was willing to risk myself, the price had risen too high. Now I'm serving up hot, fresh pizzas to everyone who wants them. I was the only person left to inherit the family business and I'm doing my best to keep it up and running in honor of my loved ones. These days, my biggest challenge is telling off a rampaging customer, and endless paperwork. That is, until he shows up again. Darius was the only guy I couldn't say no to, the one who dragged me into the world of the occult in the first place. When he shows up and begs me to assist with an exorcism, I reluctantly agree. He's still using me; because I'm the best exorcist around and he only calls when he needs my help. Before I know it, I've got an incubus in the living room, a hellhound marking around my yard, and a demon prince who can't decide if he wants to kill me or… you know. Not to mention the vampire and the nephilim I seem to have collected. Normally I wouldn't work with the supernatural, but we all have a common goal. Prevent the crime syndicate from summoning a demon prince and becoming more powerful than we can hope to handle. If I can keep my cool, it will be a miracle. If I can hold on to my soul it'll be an even bigger one. No one ever claimed being an exorcist was easy, but to protect those I'm coming to love, I'll pay whatever price necessary.
