About Isabel Jordan
Isabel Jordan writes because it's the only profession that allows her to express her natural sarcasm and not be fired. She is a paranormal and contemporary romance author. Isabel lives in the U.S. with her husband, her son, a neurotic Shepherd mix, and a ginormous Great Dane mix named Jerkface. (Don't feel bad for Jerkface. He really is a jerk.)
Now that the normal stuff is out of the way, here's some weird-but-true facts that would never come up in polite conversation. Isabel Jordan:
1. Is terrified of butterflies (don't judge...it's a real phobia called lepidopterophobia)
2. Is a lover of all things ironic (hence the butterfly on the original cover of Semi-Charmed)
3. Is obsessed with Supernatural, Game of Thrones, and Dog Whisperer.
4. Hates coffee. Drinks a Diet Mountain Dew every morning.
5. Will argue to the death that Pretty in Pink ended all wrong. (Seriously, she ends up with the guy who was embarrassed to be seen with her and not the nice guy who loved her all along? That would never fly in the world of romance novels.)
6. Would eat Mexican food every day, if given the choice.
7. Reads two books a week in varied genres.
8. Refers to her Kindle as "the precious".
9. Thinks puppy breath is one of the best smells in the world.
10. Is a social media idgit. (Her husband had to explain to her what the point of Twitter was. She's still a little fuzzy on what Instagram and Pinterest do.)
11. Kicks ass at Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon.
12. Stole her tagline idea from her son. Her tagline idea was, "Never wrong, not quite right." She liked her son's idea better.
13. Breaks one vacuum cleaner a year because she ignores standard maintenance procedures (Really, you're supposed to empty the canister every time you vacuum? Does that seem excessive to anyone else?)
14. Is still mad at the WB network for cancelling Angel in 2004.
15. Can't find her way from her bed to her bathroom without her glasses, but refused eye surgery, even when someone else offered to pay. (They lost her at "eye flap". Seriously, look it up. Scary stuff.)

The road to happily ever after has never been more hilarious...or complicated...
Grace Montgomery’s plan is simple. Go to her younger brother's wedding, stop it, go home, make partner at her law firm. Almost getting arrested by a cocky air marshal? Not on the agenda. Neither was puking on him. (Don't ask) Finding out he's her soon-to-be brother-in-law? Also a setback. And don't even get her started on her attraction to the dead-sexy jerk.
If Nick had a plan, it wouldn't include getting involved with a woman as complicated as Grace. It especially wouldn't include road tripping with her. But as it turns out, traveling--and sparring--with the sharp-witted Grace is the most fun Nick's had since, well, ever. And their chemistry? Off. The. Charts.
Soon, Grace realizes there's more to Nick than a pretty face and a big, um, gun. If she's not careful, she might lose her prized control--and her heart. But first, they'll have to deal with a meddling ex, a slew of dysfunctional family members, and a contaminated pumpkin bisque (long story). It's gonna be a long, complicated week...

Gage certainly wasn’t expecting to come face-to-face—or, face-to-ass, he supposed—with Sadie again, either. Their smokin’ physical chemistry had been complicated when they first met. (Mostly because she’d been engaged to his cousin at the time. But that’s another story…) Now Gage knows exactly what he wants, and that’s Sadie—in his arms, in his bed, forever. All he has to do is convince the woman of his dreams to un-friend zone him once and for all…
But before Gage and Sadie can figure out how to stow their emotional baggage and move forward together, they have to deal with a crazy pregnant lady, Gage’s even crazier family, and the re-appearance of a particularly pesky ghost from Sadie’s past.
Looks like things might get even more complicated this time around…
You Wrecked Me is book 2 in the You Complicate Me series but can be read as a standalone. Book 3, You Ruined Me, is also now available. Not intended for anyone who doesn't like characters who cuss, tons of nerdy pop culture references, witty, snarky banter, and all manner of familial silliness. For the rest of you, happy reading!
Michael Montgomery had a plan. He intended to get so drunk he forgot his ex-fiancé was marrying his cousin, and that he had to attend the wedding. Alone. But somewhere between the vodka and organic bananas at the supermarket, he forgot the plan and ended up rescuing a damsel in distress—by pretending to be her boyfriend. Oh, well…planning was overrated, anyway.
Delilah Morgenstern didn’t need someone to save her from her ex, but she wasn’t going to refuse the help, either. Being Michael’s fake girlfriend at the wedding was the least she could do to repay her sexy nerd in shining armor. Falling for him, though? Not an option. But surely she could fake it for one night (sharing one bed) and not get too attached. That’s what she keeps telling herself, at least…
It’s not long before Michael and Delilah realize how thin the line between real and pretend is—and just how easy, fun, and potentially ruinous it would be to cross it…
You Ruined Me, book 3 in the You Complicate Me series, is a light, snarky, low-angst romance featuring a quirky heroine and the sexy nerd who steals her heart. The books in this series can be read as standalones in any order. Each book features a guaranteed happily ever after, delightfully weird familial antics, and tons of nerdy pop culture references. There's also cussing. Lots of it. Don't say I didn't warn you...
Together, they'll be epic...or a complete train wreck. It could go either way, really...
Psychic and paranormal PI Harper Hall isn't that surprised when her business partner skips town. She never really trusted the jerk anyway.
But if Harper wants to consult for the police on a high-profile case, she'll need a new partner-- preferably one with some supernatural talents of his own.
Noah Riddick, a slayer left jobless when vampires went public and earned human rights, is perfect for the gig. Too bad he's grumpy, anti-social, and completely resistant to the idea of working with her.
Riddick's dark secrets and shady past forced him into exile from human society--an exile he was comfortable with until gorgeous and exasperating Harper waltzed into his life. Now, all too aware of how unlifelike his life has been, he realizes partnering with her might be the best thing that could ever happen to him...even though it might be the worst for her.
Fighting vampires, making immortal enemies, staging daring rescues...it's all in a day's work. But falling in love? Well...that's a little trickier. Even for the Semi-Charmed Harper Hall.
"If you love Charley Davidson, True Blood or Buffy the Vampire Slayer, then you will definitely want to read this quirky vampire/paranormal series." --Literati Literature Lovers
The Harper Hall Investigations series is perfect for fans of strong, smart, kickass heroines, grumpy, brooding heroes, paranormal mystery and hijinks, and snarky humor. Get it today!
Adrianne Riddick is far from normal. But her latest psychic vision, the one of her death, is weird even for her. To stop it from coming true, she’ll need help from her family of supernatural hunters. She’ll also need to avoid Gabriel Malek, her first love. The demon who shattered her young heart.
But as complicated as all that is, her life doesn’t really go to hell (literally) until a new enemy shows up and knocks Adrianne and Gabriel into another dimension. (Long story)
Now, if they want to get home and stop Adrianne’s vision, they need to work together—all while dealing with the fact that her unrequited feelings for Gabriel aren’t exactly unrequited anymore. Yeah…his timing could be better.
So, what’s a vampire hybrid, misfit of magic to do when her happily ever after—and, you know, her life—is on the line?
She’ll get back to you on that…
Semi-Fated is book 8 in the Harper Hall Investigations paranormal romance series. You could read it as a stand-alone, but it definitely works best if you've read the rest of the series, starting with Semi-Charmed.

You also might want to skip this one if you don't have a healthy appreciation for characters who cuss, and snark. Lots and lots of snark. Happy reading!
This box set features these 3 light, hilarious, full-length, romantic comedies:
You Complicate Me
Grace has a wedding to stop. She never intended to tangle with (or puke on) her future brother-in-law on the way there. Falling for the cocky jerk? Also not part of the plan. Looks like the road to happily ever after is about to get super complicated.
You Wrecked Me
Former runaway bride Sadie never thought she’d see Gage, her ex-fiancé’s sexy, grumpy cousin again. But one stray dog and a butt injury (long story) changed all that. Now all she has to do is remember why throwing her heart at him would be a bad idea…especially when he seems so willing to catch it…
You Ruined Me
Michael wasn’t planning on picking anyone up at the grocery, but playing nerd in shining armor and pretending to be Delilah’s boyfriend in front of her ex seemed like a good idea at the time. But how do you convince your fake girlfriend to move you out of the friendzone when your feelings become all too real?
These books are not intended for anyone who doesn't like characters who cuss, snarky banter, tons of nerdy pop culture references, and all manner of familial silliness. For the rest of you, happy reading!
Quinn Connell's life is anything but mundane. As an ex-convict with a shady past and an even shadier employment history, all he has to do is obey the terms of his parole, which are exceedingly simple: get a job, and stay out of trouble. Unfortunately, getting involved with Marina is the very definition of trouble for someone like him. And, as it turns out, her sister is the only employer in town willing to hire him. Quinn's head tells him Marina's officially off limits. Too bad his heart--and body, which can't seem to stop touching her--didn't get the memo.
But when Quinn and Marina find themselves in the middle of a brutal life-or-death situation, Quinn knows keeping his distance and staying out of trouble is no longer an option. He'll do anything to keep Marina safe, even if it means relying on a few of his quirky (and sometimes scary) new coworkers and utilizing the very same dubious skills that landed him in prison in the first place. Nab the bad guys, stay out of prison, and (hopefully) get the girl. Easy, right?
Yeah, not so much.
Semi-Obsessed is book 6 in the Harper Hall Investigations series. You can read it as a stand-alone, but it works best if you've read the other books in the series, starting with Semi-Charmed. It also works best if you like kick-ass heroines and the sometimes befuddled alpha heroes who love them. You also might want to skip this one if you don't have a healthy appreciation for cussing and pop culture references. But for everyone else, enjoy!
She’s 754821 and she’s a perfect killing machine. A nameless Sentry cleaner raised from birth to destroy paranormal threats, she’s the thing monsters fear. But then Lucas rescues her and everything changes. According to him, she has a family, a home, a purpose. To Lucas, she’s not just a number; she’s Seven, and she’s beautiful.
They’re nothing alike. He’s warm, open, easy to talk to. Her? Not so much. Violence is all she’s ever known.
And none of that matters when she’s in his arms.
But when a threat from her past emerges to destroy the new life she’s worked so hard to forge, Seven knows she’ll need to rely on her killer instincts to protect the future she longs for with Lucas. She can only hope she doesn’t lose what’s left of her humanity—and Lucas—in the process…

Mischa Bartone was a runner. Running from anything that made her feel too much was kind of her thing. But not even an expert runner like Mischa could escape death. And when the only man who’d ever made her consider not running brought her back as a vampire…well, let’s just say she didn’t exactly handle it gracefully.
Giving the love of his life immortality didn’t go exactly as Hunter had hoped. As if having her push him away wasn’t punishment enough, he also ended up in prison for turning her without her written consent. And after months on the inside with no contact, he could only assume she was well and truly over him. So what if the memory of her consumed his every waking thought? That was his problem; he’d deal with it. Time to stop chasing Mischa Bartone once and for all.
But when Mischa and Hunter are thrown together on a case for a very pregnant Harper Hall, sparks fly—and it doesn’t take Mischa long to realize that letting Hunter go had been a huge mistake, the biggest of her life (er, undeath?). Time to stop running and fight for what—and who—she wants.
So, all she has to do is go undercover in the Miss Eternity vampire beauty pageant, find a couple of missing former contestants, stop a sicko stalker with a penchant for floral metaphors, complete her court-mandated vampire therapy sessions, and win back the man (er, vampire) she loves. In heels. And a skeezy pageant swimsuit. Easy, right?
Yeah, not so much.
Semi-Twisted works best if read as part of the Harper Hall Investigations series (Book 1: Semi-Charmed; Book 2: Semi-Human). This book is intended for mature audiences. This book is not intended for anyone who doesn’t enjoy smart, potty-mouthed heroines and dark, brooding heroes, and who doesn’t appreciate a plethora of nerdy pop culture references. For the rest of you: happy reading!
Harper has accomplished a lot over the years. She's fallen in love, gotten married, and raised a supernaturally gifted baby, all while running the most successful PI business in the state. She'd mention her hot-as-hell dhampyre husband Noah Riddick, too...but that'd just be bragging. It's not like challenges haven't presented themselves, either. Vampire serial killers? Yep. Caught a few of those. Supernatural mafia? Shut that down ages ago. Hostage negotiations? Fuhgedaboudit. So when someone near and dear to Riddick's heart is targeted by a maniacal military asshat intent on building an army of genetically engineered super-soldiers, Harper knows she'll have to fix things once again. Especially since the asshat in question just happens to be her father ...
But it's not long before Harper and Riddick realize the military is the least of their concerns, and if they aren't careful, they just might trigger a paranormal apocalypse. Can Harper and her band of semi-magical misfits save the world--or will this be the end of Harper Hall Investigations (and life as we know it)--once and for all?
In case you missed any books along the way, here's the reading order for the Harper Hall Investigations series:
Book 1: Semi-Charmed
Book 2: Semi-Human
Book 3: Semi-Twisted
Book 4: Semi-Broken
Book 5: Semi-Sane

Nikolai Aleyev has a lifetime of sins to atone for—not the least of which is betraying Violet’s trust. She’s made it clear she wants nothing more to do with him, and he understands. She’s better off without him. It doesn’t matter that he’s broken and only semi-sane without her. But when he’s assigned to act as Violet’s bodyguard, Nikolai knows he can’t stay away. Protecting her? That’ll be easy for a dhampyre like him. Keeping his hands off her and controlling the attraction that sizzles between them with every touch? That just might be more than he can manage.
When bullets—and sparks—start flying, Nikolai will put everything on the line to save Violet—his freedom, his heart, his life. Because sometimes, the line between crazy and happily ever after is razor thin, and the reward just might be worth crossing it.
Thriving paranormal PI business? Check. At least some control over her psychic ability? Check. Smokin' hot ex-slayer fiancé? Check.
But Harper's plans to grab the first ordained Elvis impersonator she can find and marry Noah Riddick on the Vegas strip—sans drama—are shot to hell when her old business partner shows up and makes her an offer she can't refuse. And if she tries? Well, let's just say she might not live long enough to regret it.
In the course of their elopement from hell, Harper and Riddick find themselves entangled with the paranormal mob, dodging the, uh, affections of a creepy vampire mafia boss, and participating in the supernatural equivalent of Fight Club. First rule of paranormal Fight Club? There are no rules. And, oh yeah, don't die.
Seriously, what's a girl gotta do to get her happily ever after?
