About Michelle Manus
Michelle lives in a desolate land with a dark wizard, a unicorn, and a feline overlord. Despite certain stereotypes you may be familiar with, the dark wizard is not holding her captive, nor does the unicorn require virgin riders. The feline overlord, however, may well be evil.
She holds dual BAs in English and Philosophy, which has gotten her about as far as you would expect it to in life. Despite all evidence to the contrary, she’s still desperately holding out hope that in an alternate reality she’s a sword-wielding princess.

Welcome to Earth Between. The inhabitants are magical, the fugitives dashing, and the new Guardian is having a seriously strange life.
It’s easy to feel forgettable. Nyx literally is, and the condition seems to be getting worse.
Homeless, alone, and with no memory of her past, she's at the end of her rope when she stumbles into Earth Between. Here, a Waystation connects the planet to the rest of the inhabited universe, and magic and intergalactic travel are just the order of the day.
Becoming the Station’s Guardian seems too good to be true. It means a home and stability, surrounded by people who can actually remember she exists. But when an illegal traveler slips into Earth Between, she’s given an ultimatum: apprehend him or lose Guardianship of the Station.
Nyx will do whatever it takes to keep her new life, even if it means following the fugitive to one of the universe’s most dangerous planets. But that action has life-altering consequences, thrusting her into the middle of a conflict that started centuries before her birth.
Nyx is about to come face to face with the powers of the universe—and discover that being seen is even harder than being forgotten.

She’s been to the universe’s prison planet, why not check the black market off her bucket list next?
Life at Nyx’s Station has been a little tense of late. There are the fugitives she’s hiding, the Harvester of Worlds she still doesn’t know what to do with, and then there’s the ex-boyfriend she’s been avoiding. So when someone from her elusive past shows up in Earth Between, Nyx jumps at the distraction—and the chance to finally get some answers.
The only problem is, her childhood friend Seth has no intention of answering any of those questions. When he portal-jumps to the forbidden Shadow Market, it should be a guaranteed escape from a Station Guardian, but Nyx’s altered bond with her Station means following him is a possibility. One she has every intention of making a reality.
Her newfound friends insist on coming with her, and really, what’s the worst that could happen from taking three ex-Enforcers, two Amazons, and one Tiagren shifter to the universe’s most notorious black market planet?
This time, leaving Earth was not Nyx’s choice...
After her latest trip off-planet, Nyx Fortuna has every intention of keeping both feet firmly on Earth Between. Between trying to figure out why the Kumir have been hunting her friend Seth, searching for a way to destroy the Harvester of Worlds, and getting frustrated by the glacially slow return of her memories, she doesn’t have any time for planet-hopping.
Unfortunately, the universe has other plans. When she’s abducted from Earth Between, Nyx finds herself in the remote reaches of the universe, on planets unconnected to the Station’s ley lines. Her only hope lies in mastering the portal magic she’s only just discovered she has. But even if she can manage its use, does she have enough magic—and determination—to find her way back home?
Siren Savage doesn't stay in one place for longer than six months. Nightmare creatures stalk her footsteps, and the gray-eyed man who controls them will do anything to claim her power for himself—the power to heal or kill with a single touch. A life on the run means a normal relationship isn't in the cards, but when she meets Jace Winters, she finds herself wanting everything she knows she can't have.
Old wounds have Jace staying as far away from Aspect—the power that runs in his family's bloodline—as possible. But when he meets Siren, a woman with more Aspect than any one person should be able to contain, he's incapable of turning down her plea for help—even if it means diving back into the very society he once swore he'd have nothing more to do with.
Neither of them planned on falling in love, but you know what they say about the best-laid plans...
Author's Note: Siren's Song is the first in a trilogy of connected standalone paranormal romances. It's perfect if you like: romances set in a fully-developed magical world, relatable, strong female leads who make their decisions based on logic, and male love interests who are capable of showing their concern for a woman without ever feeling the need to lock said woman in a room for her own protection. Smexy scenes are explicit but don't overwhelm the story.
In Aspect Society, magic is political power, secrets are as common as breath, and what you don’t know could easily get you killed…
Valkyrie Winters’ life is tied to a magical object that shouldn’t exist. Which is why she has one goal: steal said artifact and destroy it before it kills her. Simple, right? Not when the artifact in question belongs to the council that governs magical society, and not when the handsome, infuriating Random Tremayne is intent on sticking his nose in her business. All because she made the mistake of sleeping with him one time. A year ago.
As a notorious playboy—and her brother’s best friend—Random was supposed to be safe. A one-night fling. He wasn’t supposed to tell her he loved her. She’s kept him at arms-length ever since, unable to shut him down completely, but also unable to give him anything more—because the people Valkyrie cares about have an unfortunate tendency to find their lives ruined. Still, the unpredictable nature of Random’s magic might be just the thing Valkyrie needs to pull off this heist—and keep her life. But saving hers might destroy his.
Random has been in love with Valkyrie since approximately forever. But with the exception of one night together, she won’t give him the time of day. After a year spent chasing her—and having his feelings run through an emotional blender more times than he can count—he’s ready to throw in the towel.
Then a chance encounter brings Valkyrie’s secrets tumbling into the light, and her actions finally start making sense. She needs his help, and he’s more than willing to give it. If they survive stealing from the Council itself, will he finally get what he’s always wanted, or will she break his heart forever?
Even the magically inclined know werewolves don’t exist. So why is her new rescue dog suddenly taking human form?
Ever since going sober, Meredith Townsend has kept busy by helping her friend clean up the mess left over when they took down Aspect Society’s biggest bogeyman, Elijah Winters. When they find a dog locked in a basement at one of Elijah’s old compounds, Meredith’s magic immediately senses a lie. She knows it definitely isn’t a dog, but she never expects a werewolf—since everyone knows they don’t exist.
Jensen King spent six months as Elijah Winters’ captive while the sadistic Aspecter tried to discover the secrets of all things Shifter. Now that Jensen’s free, he only has one goal: locate the other Shifters stolen from his pack before they get sold to the highest bidder at an underground magical auction. But his beautiful, suspicious rescuer isn’t exactly easy to sneak away from. When it turns out she might have as much of a reason as him to want to bring down the auction, he proposes they work together.
If they succeed, they might even have a chance to broker peace between the two magical societies...if they don’t accidentally lead them into the first open war in centuries first.
