MagicInk isn’t your average tattoo shop—it’s a mecca for the weird and unusual.
Katie Bishop keeps her head low and goes about her business like any other mundane citizen of Savannah. But the dragon tattoo on her back since birth isn’t ink at all—it’s her reality.
She owns a tattoo shop at the edge of town, but the people who work at MagicInk are more than just employees—they’re family. So, when she makes a grave mistake and accidentally frees a rogue god imprisoned in an old grimoire, she’ll do whatever it takes to rectify that problem before the city falls. Even if the ultimate price is her death.
As if running a business and hunting a ruthless god isn’t enough of a challenge, Jackson Hunter rides into town and blows everything to hell. But just like her, he isn’t what he seems. Will he help or hinder the hunt?
The Katie Bishop series is full of action, but it’s also about finding your tribe. If you like found families and a good dose of humor, this one’s for you.
For fans of Mercy Thompson mixed with a little Sookie Stackhouse.
Eleven years at the FBI taught me two things—how to stay alive when a gun is pointed at my head, and that I never want to work for anyone else ever again. When I moved to Atlanta and started my own PI firm, I swore I’d never make my living chasing down missing or philandering spouses. But the rent is due, so when a woman knocked on my door and offered me a boatload of money to track down her missing husband who helped himself to a family heirloom on his way out, I had a hard time saying no. Seemed like easy money.
The local vampire cartel has also taken an interest in my case, and now I’m neck-deep in the shady blood trade questioning who the bad guys really are. Throw in a wizard with a fascination for dinosaurs and Venus flytraps, and my case just got even more complicated.
Did I mention my dead ancestors talk to me, and my partner and I are on the run from a ruthless vampire in New Orleans?
The Chronicles of Jesse Ames series is part of the Katie Bishop universe, so old friends from Savannah will pop in often.
Warning: Jesse has a mouth like a sailor. Colorful language is guaranteed.
If you want to find a vampire in Savannah these days, all you have to do is throw a rock and you’ll hit one. Colin and Adrik are back, and they’ve both brought their own brand of trouble. Abel is caught in the middle, and Katie will have to walk a fine line between friendships to save him even if it means pressuring Emmaline to make nice with dear old dad.
But Katie has more to worry about than just the vampire problem in town. There’s a werelock stalking the city, and Jackson's and Kali’s fates are both on the line if Katie doesn’t figure out Ethan’s secret and kill him before he takes his pound of flesh.
Can she stop a vampire war and kill a werelock? The alternative isn’t an option.
Katie Bishop has just been pulled back into the world of the Crossroads Society—to hunt down a murderous sorceress looking to take over the throne of Savannah.
It’s just another Saturday night in the city, but what happens on this particular evening will set the wheels in motion for a witch war that could destroy Blackthorn Grove—the reigning coven of Savannah. There’s been a murder, and all the evidence points to one of their own. In the race to uncover the truth before a council of witches arrives for a formal tribunal, the revelations about Blackthorn Grove keep coming.
But that’s not all Katie has to deal with. There’s a fight going on inside of her—between the woman and the dragon that lives on her back. With her twenty-fifth birthday right around the corner, she’ll be faced with an even bigger fight—battle for control over the dragon in what could be a deadly ritual.
Will the witches of Blackthorn Grove retain the throne of Savannah? Will Katie win the battle for control over the dragon?
Blackthorn Grove is the second book in the Katie Bishop series.
Decades after her “departure” from this world, Althea Noble Bouleau has returned to reclaim the throne of Blackthorn Grove. But she’s not the same witch who left years ago, and her obsession with Emmaline could mean the end of Savannah’s most powerful coven.
As Althea’s motives start to unfold, she vanishes with Emmaline, leaving Katie and Gabriel with a cold trail to find them. But Katie also has problems closer to home to deal with, like the expansion of MagicInk and an employee suddenly showing signs that his recent bout with a vampire was more than just a bad memory.
And then there’s the warlock who just arrived in town.
The clock is ticking, and Katie is running out of time as a blanket of darkness begins to fall over the city.
Nothing’s more dangerous than a lover scorned, especially one with fangs. Gabriel is about to find that out, but he’s only the consolation prize. The real goal is Pearl May Mobley, and Sugar will be the ultimate weapon if she doesn’t end up in jail—or at the bottom of the river—first.
Meanwhile, the howlers are coming out in full force, and Sea Bass has his own ghosts from the past to deal with.
Katie is stuck somewhere in the middle, trying to juggle all the chaos, including her own wedding plans. But the dominos are falling fast, and people she loves will die if she doesn’t cave to blackmail.
And then there are the bodies popping up on a regular basis. Coincidence? Or is there another threat in town?
Some people would welcome their long-lost family. But when your father is a ruthless, ancient vampire, it’s best to run in the opposite direction.
Emmaline is a demure witch with a heart of gold. She’s also more powerful than all of Blackthorn Grove’s witches combined. After twenty years of exile enforced by the coven, her father, Adrik, has come back to Savannah with his clan to claim his daughter. He’s hell-bent on taking Emmaline back to his house of vampires in New Orleans.
Katie Bishop is determined to protect Emmaline and send the vampires back to Louisiana, but Emmaline may not be the only one who needs protecting. There’s something inside Katie that could make Adrik want to possess her too.
What is Adrik really after, and why is he no longer afraid of the coven? The race is on to figure that out and to stop the trail of bodies the vampires are leaving all over town.
Dark Nightingale is the fourth book in the Katie Bishop series.
Savannah is about to become a former city on the map if Katie can’t figure out how to get rid of the warlocks who just blew into town. Equally disturbing are their deep ties to Jackson’s father, the man who brought them.
Randall Hunter is hell-bent on bringing Jackson into the family business. But Jackson knows what his father does for a living–or thinks he does—and he’s just as determined to refuse. But the warlocks are much more than they seem, and Jackson doesn’t have a choice when they target Katie as leverage. If Katie could just find a way to kill their unusual henchmen, the warlocks would be toast.
Can things get any worse? Of course they can. Mouse is two steps away from succumbing to a two-hundred-year-old family curse, Katie’s stressing out over the plans to expand MagicInk, and there’s about to be a dangerous shortage of tequila in town.
Bayou Kings is the fifth book in the Katie Bishop series.
Jackson Hunter’s past has finally caught up to him. So has the woman who refuses to let him go—a cat with some sharp claws.
Katie Bishop is starting to wonder if she knows her boyfriend at all. He’s just given her two million reasons in cash to doubt that, and the shifters he used to ride with back in Atlanta want to get their hands on it. But they want more than just the money. They want Jackson, and they’re willing to dine on a few tourists and take hostages to get it all.
But Katie has more to deal with than just losing Jackson. One of her employees has gone missing, and old ghosts have come back to haunt her—in the form of a possible life sentence in the penitentiary.
Shifter’s Moon is the third book in the Katie Bishop series.
A bargain has been struck, and a shattering decision must be made.
The Destiny Thief picks up where The Blood Thief left us – staring at the last page and asking... how?
Alex Kelley and Greer Sinclair have become an inseparable pair, but the choice she’ll have to make for the sake of love could destroy them both. She’s becoming a force to be reckoned with, making her even more desirable to those who want to control her and exploit her remarkable gifts, including her own family.
From the streets of Manhattan to the ancient sites of Ireland, more revelations emerge, and the true nature of the people and the gods in Alex’s circle begin to unfold. The closing chapters of The Fitheach Trilogy will bring poignant or fitting conclusions for so many of the people she loves, and they will finally reveal the truth about the prophecy and the power of three witches in one.
The Blood Thief continues the story as Alex and her enigmatic host, Greer Sinclair, are on the hunt for an elusive vessel that can only be opened by the power of the amulet. Contained within this vessel is a prophecy––one that could alter the world, good or bad depending on who gets to it first. The search will take them from the streets of Little Italy to the campus of Cornell University. There they meet the eccentric and brilliant Dr. David Oxford who sheds light on why the vessel has been nearly impossible to find. Could a mere mortal hold the key to finding it? Will an ambitious mafia princess ruin their plan?
As the hunt heats up, so does the attraction between Alex and Greer. And as her unique birthright unfolds deeper at every turn, that attraction and the friendships she cherishes will be thoroughly tested. Alex isn’t the only one with secrets––some hard to believe; others simply unfathomable.
Read through to the conclusion in THE DESTINY THIEF to find out how it all ends.
