I’m supposed to be the Alpha's mate. Screw that.
Since I was born, I was destined to be one thing—the Alpha’s Mate. It should be every girl’s dream. Not mine, though. He’s too dark and damaged, and I’ve got a secret he can never know: I’m not a true wolf.
Instead of waiting for him to figure out I’m an abomination, I left on my fifteenth birthday. But I didn’t go far. No way in hell would I let fate drive me from the town I love.
Ten years later, I’m still hiding in plain sight. When I occasionally see him on the street—deadly, sexy, powerful--I just walk by. Keep my head down.
Until that night. Wrong place, wrong time, and suddenly I’m accused of murdering someone from my old pack. And he’s there. Blaming me. I’ve got one chance to prove my innocence and find the real killer, or I'm dead by shifter law.
Fortunately, the Alpha doesn't recognize me because I'm no longer the same ugly duckling. He senses I'm special though, and he won’t stop until he figures out the truth. But when he does, I’ll be in danger from more than just the murderer.
My secret is out
Despite ten years of secrecy, Lachlan has figured out that I’m his mate. And he’s not pleased that I’ve been hiding from him. It’s hardly my worst problem, though.
There’s a killer after me. Multiple killers, if our source is to be believed. And they’re determined to find me. As much as I want to run a hundred miles from Lachlan to avoid the mate bond, it’s too dangerous. I need his help to find the people who are after me, and there’s no way he’d let me go, anyway.
As much as I hate it, we’re going to have to team up to stop a madman. The hunt forces us into close proximity, and despite our best efforts to resist each other, it becomes harder every day. Fate seems determined to have its way, and what it wants is for me and Lachlan to be together.
I work for the Order of Magica, the supernatural version of the FBI. Sounds fun, right? Except I spend my days chained to my desk, writing reports, and wishing that I was out solving crimes.
Well, be careful what you wish for.
When my best friend is abducted, my life in Chicago turns upside down.
I’ll do anything to get her back—even work with Damian Malek, a wanted criminal, notorious crime lord, and dangerous fallen angel. He’s hot, lethal, and he's the only one who can help me master my dangerous powers. I don't want anyone to know about my magic, but I have no choice if I want to save my friend.
Here's the catch: if the Order finds out that I’m working with Damian, I’ll get canned. Maybe even be hunted for what I am. But if I don’t give him what he wants, he’ll reveal my secret to the world.
People say I'm a weirdo. Sure, my idea of a party is a mini box of wine and hanging out with a feral raccoon, but it works for me.
When I’m accused of murder, things get crazy. One, I learn that I have magic. Two, there’s a secret magical city hidden right in London itself. And three, my only hope is a vampire who’s sexy as sin and scary as the devil himself. He's called the Devil of Darkvale, and he all but owns Guild City.
Some say I should just quit and turn myself in. Not a chance. I’m going to solve this murder myself, which means surviving in a new world of witch parties, magical guilds, and a vampire with a tortured past. The vampire and I are like colliding stars, and the heat is irresistible. I should avoid him, but if I want to save my own life, he’s my only hope.
Hades never saw me coming...
Tuesday night in the library started out normal--alone with cheap beer and a murder mystery. Partying, librarian style. Until the god Hades appears.
When he abducts me, I try to say he's got the wrong girl--I'm no goddess. At least, I don't think so.
Suddenly, I'm in his world, captive. The upside? I live in a castle with a lethally beautiful god who wants to make me a queen. The downside? He's scary AF and also wants me to help him destroy the world.
Obviously that gets a big 'no' from me. I'll do whatever it takes to escape, including seducing the god of death. But together, we're an inferno, and the heat is impossible to resist. His touch fogs my mind, but I must succeed. Otherwise, everyone dies.
The god of hell wants me to be his queen.
I’ve screwed up. Big time. A day ago, I mistakenly released the evil Titan Chronos onto the Earth. He’s spreading devastation in his pursuit of ultimate power, and it’s all my fault.
The only way to stop him is to fulfil an ancient prophecy and unite with Hades. Problem is, Hades plans to rule in Chronos’ place, spreading the underworld to earth. He wants me to rule by his side, a dark queen to his dark king.
As much as I want Hades—I might even be growing to love him—I can’t be part of something so terrible. Underneath Hades’ dark exterior, I know there is goodness inside. My only hope is to convince him to turn to the light, because I’m afraid I can't live without him.
Finally, I’ve found a place where my weirdness fits in—Guild City, a secret magical place deep in the heart of London. And it’s great… for about 2.5 seconds. Right up until the Council of Guilds discovers I’m a magical misfit with too much magic I can’t control.
When they throw me in prison, my only hope is The Devil of Darkvale. A prophecy states that the lethally sexy vampire is my Cursed Mate. Whatever that means. He’s so powerful that he can get the Council off my back, but he’ll only do it if I work for him.
I want to refuse because the attraction between us is undeniable, but I don’t have a choice. I agree on one condition—he trains me to control my magic so the Council won't toss me in a dark cell to rot. He agrees, but as we work to solve a mystery from his deadly past, it becomes a question of whether or not we’ll even survive.
I'm going back to hell, and Hades awaits...
Two weeks ago, I escaped Hades fortress. He might not admit it, but we’re on opposite sides of a war. He wants to spread eternal darkness; I want to stop him.
To succeed, I must master my magic before it destroys me. But Hades still thinks he can seduce me to the dark side. I let him think he’s right, because he’s the only one who can teach me how to use my magic.
But this practice requires that we touch, and once we do, our connection is impossible to resist. Soon, I’m torn between my goals and Hades. If I can’t resist his darkness that calls so sweetly, we’re all doomed.
There’s no other way to say it: I’m up a creek without a paddle. I’m one half of a Cursed Mate bond, paired with the Devil of Darkvale, a devastatingly sexy, powerful vampire.
But we’re reaching the end of the line. Grey, who I think I'm growing to love, is cursed to kill me. Or he’s going to die. Fate will ensure we take one of those two terrible paths. Though we’ve tried, it’s been impossible to break the bond or the curse.
Then I discover a mystery that pulls me in deep. My past is not as it seems, and there may be answers that that can help me save Grey and myself. No matter how dangerous, I’m going to follow the clues until it’s all over—for better or worse.
Cursed Mate is the final book in the Guild City series, a fun, sexy urban fantasy romance by Linsey Hall.
The good news: I have a new life in a crazy city full of actual magic. Wild, right? The bad news: I still don’t have a guild, which means I’m halfway to being an outlaw. My days here are numbered.
When an enchanted book reveals dark secrets from Guild City’s past, a dangerous threat rises. Worse, it has stained my friend Mac with a deadly curse.
It’s up to me to save her—and maybe even the city itself—but the only person who knows about the city’s hidden past is the Devil of Darkvale, my Cursed Mate. The immortal vampire could be my downfall. But if I want any chance of saving Mac and the city I love, I must go to him for answers.
Life as I know it is irrevocably changed. I’m now the leader of the Shadow Guild, a ragtag bunch of supernaturals who don’t quite fit in anywhere but together. It should be perfect, but of course the magical world is never so easy.
For one, the man that I’m falling for—the Devil of Darkvale—is doomed by a curse that will drag him to hell. There’s only one solution—use magic to break the ancient, fated bond that binds us, and then don’t fall for each other.
That becomes difficult when a series of kidnappings forces us to work together. Love might equal death for the Devil and I, but with so many lives at stake, we must work together to save them…all without succumbing to the pull of fate.
He must never realize who I am.
I lead a humble life slaughtering monsters. As long as no one learns that I’m descended from a line of forbidden Dragon Bloods, I can keep my job and my life.
But when a fiercely sexy Fae king realizes I’m his fated mate, I’ve got problems. Especially since A), he hates me and B), he learns my secret. It puts my whole life at risk. I want to kill my mate.
The stars align when my job sends me to the Fae Court as an undercover agent to investigate him. Did the king kill hundreds?
Even when I’m in disguise, he only has eyes only for me. He senses that I’m his mate, and our attraction is irresistible. Despite our mistrust, we can't stay apart. But when he realizes what I’m up to, there will be hell to pay. That is, if I survive.
