RED AUGUST - BOOK ONE
What if you found out that you were descended from a long line of clandestine fighters, and that your family was still at war? Or that the love of your life was something other than human?
August Archer thinks she's a normal teenage girl—even though she has been having disturbing and erotic dreams about wolves lately. Still grieving over the loss of her bookish, charming father, and wondering over his final gift of a red hooded cloak, August is uprooted from her New York City apartment to a tiny town in Maryland, and the rambling Victorian house where he grew up. There she meets a wise woman with a gift for herbal medicine, the gentle old man who keeps the house in repair and the grounds thriving, and her new neighbor: an enigmatic, irresistibly fascinating man who refuses to talk to her, yet who seems to know her better than she knows herself, and fuels her most intense romantic fantasies.
But it's when August begins to coax her feisty Scottish grandmother out of her self-imposed catatonia that a strange tale of werewolves and hunters emerges—one in which the man of her dreams may be her family's oldest enemy—in this modern-day telling of the Red Riding Hood story.
RED ARCHER - BOOK TWO
Following a season of late weddings and new romance, August Archer is ready to embrace the next part of her life—ready to reclaim her lost heritage, and to join herself with the man she loves.
But her sojourn with Faolan to their Scottish homeland turns out to be a very different trip than either of them could have imagined. August feels the bonds of love twisting into knots when the past comes back to haunt them both, even as the bonds of family grow stronger when she finds the hunter clans—her ancient kin—preparing to fight for what they hold dear.
Before this journey ends, August will face her bitterest enemy, confront a shocking betrayal in the Archer family, and become transformed by a spirit world she never dreamed existed. And she will encounter a ghost from the past that threatens to unravel her entire future, in this reimagined saga of the Red Riding Hood story—the sequel to Red August.
RED HUNTER - BOOK THREE
How do you forgive the one who shattered your family? How do you forgive yourself, if you were the one?
There has been much to celebrate in the Archer family. August’s grandmother has been rejuvenated by late-life romance, honeymooning with the man who has waited so long for her. Her mother too has found love again, and even her best friend has come back into her life. With her own true love Faolan, August can finally enjoy just being an everyday couple in their little Maryland town—even if the mother of his child has been an irritating presence in their lives lately (and even if that bond is something August wonders if she’ll ever have with him).
She knows she must keep up her fight training, and with Faolan’s help she’s learning to control the fierce power emerging within her. Yet August wants nothing more than to heal the old rifts in the Archer clan, and bring her estranged aunt Blair home. Blair Conall, however, is not a lady to be trusted. Having deserted her family years ago to secretly marry the leader of the lycan clan, the Archers’ ancient enemies—and later plotted his downfall as well—she is a complicated woman with her own plans and her own rules.
But back in their Scottish homeland, the Lycan Council crafted a vicious and twisted scheme to rebuild their power. Reaching across the waters to Baltimore, they send a bloodthirsty killer after August, while calling on their monstrous cousins in the city’s rundown waterfronts to set a trap—and who better to bait it with than Blair herself? August may soon find that the most dangerous enemy is the one you call a friend, in this third book in the Red August series.
