The Fae Worlds

  • Kidnapped

    Waking up was more difficult than normal. Kestrel blinked a couple of times before attempting to move. It almost felt like she had a hangover, but she knew she hadn’t gone out drinking the night before. All she could remember clearly was going to the library, and then there was a fuzzy blank. Slowly she sat up. At first she just wanted to lie back down to get rid of the headache. Then Kestrel realised she was in a room she’d never been in before. Breathing deeply, she slipped off the bed, her unexpectedly bare feet touching carpet. There was no doubt in her mind something bad happened. Nowhere was…

  • Daniel’s Takeover

    Lucas walked into the room. He was an easy person to spot. The power came off him in waves, being one of the two most powerful people in the House. It wasn’t until she felt him walking toward her Kara looked up, and their eyes met for a moment, as he closed the distance between them. Normally they avoided each other. He’d arrived at a difficult time. It made her cold to him at a time when he needed support, the early days of working through his first experience of being a shifter. Eventually, the way it was always going to happen, someone else arrived, and then Lucas wasn’t alone.…

  • Birthday Night

    Aurora stared into the flames, wondering how other people felt on their eighteenth birthday. It was a day that would define the rest of their lives, but no one ever talked about it. She knew why. Talking about it would make the possibility of it happening more real. Being a magic user could be a death sentence, if the wrong person happened to hear of it. Parents dreaded the thought of losing their child, while her generation was worried they’d never fulfil their potential. They all had plans for their future, something she’d never been able to do. After spending several days poring over the family trees of everyone in…

  • The Twins

    A Plan For Survival The alarms were loud. It was how they were supposed to be, and yet, as I tried to work out what was going on, I couldn’t understand why they were loud. What was happening? Breathing deeply, I remembered where I was, which was all I managed to do before the stasis chamber was opened. My brother looked down at me, holding one hand out to help me. Taking it, eyes meeting with his for a moment, I let him do most of the work, the alarm even louder as it echoed through the metal hallways. Like I expected he was already prepared, our emergency bags beside…

  • A Plan for Survival?

    Sabotage? “We don’t know them.” I raised an eyebrow. “I don’t know you.” His eyes met with mine. “Lucien, I appreciate you helping me, because I don’t know if I’d have been able to get off the Paladin otherwise. This…” Gesturing, at a loss for words, I bit down on my bottom lip. “We know nothing about this world. Surviving isn’t going to be an easy task, and I believe more of us will make them simpler. Especially if we are somewhere dangerous.” Lucien glanced at Alex and Bonnie. “Trusting them might be a mistake.” “Anything could be, but they have skills we don’t. Skills we’re likely going to need.”…

  • Spellbound

    The bathroom seemed the best place to go. I could feel the spell wrapping around me, and I tried to breathe as it tightened around my rib cage. It wasn’t the easy thing I’d ever had to do. Whatever had been used made me want to curl up on the floor and sleep, but I knew that letting the spell get the better of me was going to be a mistake. Then my cousin would grab me the way he’d been threatening to since he realised what I could do, because he needed me for the next step in his plan to take over the world. Laughing at him when…

  • Rescuing the Dragons

    Erin was almost out of the window when a hand grabbed hold of her leg, and pulled her back into the room. All she had a chance to do was let go of the files in the hope she’d be able to retrieve them. Her feet had barely touched the ground when she was almost picked up by the owner of the hand. The only thing she really had a chance to notice about him, other than his gender, was the slave collar he wore around his neck, so she knew he was following orders. That didn’t stop her from trying to fight her way free, but he was a…

  • Returning

    As I stood on the doorstep, hoping I was only going to have to deal with one of the two brothers, I found myself wishing my life was simpler. When he answered the door I did my best not to show any of the emotions I was feeling. For far too long the two of us simply stared at each other. Fortunately Erik appeared behind Axel right when I was about to say the wrong thing. “Cassie?” He smiled at me. “I didn’t think we’d ever see you again.”

  • Waking An Empress

    The curtains opened. Carrie, yawning, rolled, and found someone was opening her curtains for her, which was definitely not normal. She had gone to bed alone, right? Doing her best not to make too much noise, even though it didn’t make sense that a burglar would be opening her curtains, she slid her hands down her body. Instead of wearing her favourite comfy pyjamas she was in some sort of night gown. Was it made of silk? It felt like it was made of silk. Something else making no sense. Before she was ready the person who’d been opening her curtains turned to look at her.
