He has one chance to defeat a demon before it destroys the woman he loves—again.

U.S. Forest Ranger Annie McGowen sees what roams the Cabinet Mountains woods after dark when she runs under the moon as a white wolf. But after an earthquake strands her with a wrecked truck, she encounters something her years of wilderness experience never prepared her for. A tall, hot First Nation man holding an enormous scythe and standing over a bloody body. Against all evidence, her inner wolf insists he's innocent.

Hualpa and two other warriors were put in stasis two thousand years ago, to be awakened if a ravenous demon ever escaped its prison. Now the monster is loose and his brothers are dead. Hualpa stands alone between a bloodthirsty threat and an unprepared world that's nothing like the one he left behind.

Hualpa's grief and aching loneliness ignite Annie's compassion, which flares into soul-deep attraction. But with their newfound love comes a growing fear in Hualpa's heart. Fear that if he fails to kill the demon, it will destroy the one precious thing he has left. Annie.

Strength can be drawn from pain…if the heart can heal faster than it bleeds.

Guardians of the Light, Book 1

Dara Khan Androcles was trained from childhood to be a healer. But as a traitorous, demon-possessed invader threatens Safehold, and she defends a wounded warrior on the battlefield, her ruthlessly hidden dragon thirsts for blood.

When she lifts the warrior’s blond, blood-encrusted hair away from his ear, she discovers he is more than King Hengist’s outlander ally. He is an immortal. The elven heir to the throne of Cymry.

Loren ta Cedric senses something different about flame-haired, falcon-eyed woman who saves him. A healer, wreathed in raw, dark power, who wields knives with deadly skill. A mortal who prays to the Lady, not the human gods. Now he owes this thoroughly distracting female a Life-Debt. Which, in the heat of their flight to Loren’s homeland to raise an army, somehow becomes Life-Mate.

Dragon-human and elf, peasant and prince, logic says they have no future. Yet the power of their unlikely bond could be the only thing that saves their world from a demon poised to tear it apart.

Warning: Contains a grouchy dragon, a sentient war mare with the dry wit of a certain English Dame, and a fiery (literally) heroine who strikes serious sparks with a mercenary elf.


reviews duality

5.0 out of 5 stars
By C.burnetteon April 4, 2013

This book was one of many I had downloaded for free and kept untouched on my device. I finally forced myself to open a book and chose Duality at random. I must confess, I never would have thought I'd enjoy a romance novel so much. I love how the story is enveloped in fantasy. I found it very easy to read and have already recommended this book to my friends.

What a great find!
By LadyAtlantison December 28, 2012

Great Book!
By Amber A.on January 21, 2010

I had a great time reading this book. I found the combination of action/love story very well written and entertaining. I had trouble putting the book down as it kept me interested from beginning to end. I'd recommend it to anyone who loves reading and enjoys action/love stories.

Guardians of the Light, Book 2

An assassin num. An elven paladin. A ruthless queen who will destroy all they hold dear.

As a child, invaders butchered Maleta’s parents and left her ravaged body for dead. Now, reborn as a finely-honed weapon for the Gray Goddess, Maleta has shed the burden of emotions for one goal—regain her homeland for her brother.

Cianan ta Daneal’s mission to the fractured land of Shamar is twofold: to overthrow a despotic queen, and to save a life. For months, he’s been haunted by recurring visions of a beautiful swordswoman slaughtered by a skeleton army. He never expected to lay eyes on that woman and recognize her as his Lifemate—or that she’d turn and run like hell.

Uniting Shamar’s diverse peoples in revolt is easy compared to the delicate task of wooing a woman who flinches from his touch.

Slowly, Maleta dares to hope that her country, what’s left of her family, and her shattered heart are safe in Cianan’s steady hands. But when the cold blade of fate strikes true, can she trust his love is strong enough to pull her back from the Abyss?

Warning: This new twist on Sleeping Beauty contains an assassin nun who knows no fear. Okay, just one fear, but it’s a biggie. And an Elven paladin with the Devil’s own negotiating skills. To coax her heart out of hiding, he’s gonna need every one of them.

OK, it was more like Cianan meets "Red Sonja".................
By Teresaon February 18, 2010

Wow—I so totally still love Cianan! From Book 1-I knew he would be an awesome story. That said- I think I understand the broken character she tried to create with Maleta-but I still couldn't get that old Conan the barbarian sidekick (Red Sonja) out of my head.

I liked the really strong heroine-but I think she overpowered what could have been Cianan's true character. Loved him-he was very patient and understanding and his welfare drove me to continue turning the pages. Dang! he is one good lookin elf too.

I love the series and will continue to acquire them as you write them Renee!!!

Ruled by the moon. Lured by desire. Destined for a miracle…or bitter betrayal.

Guardians of the Light, Book 3

Years ago, the pull of the full moon and a powerful curiosity drew Finora into a human fisherman’s bed—a man who stole her selkie skin and took its location to his grave. For seven years, trapped on land, she has searched fruitlessly. Hope fading with every passing year.

Tasked with finding and returning dragons to his mountain homeland in the east, Trystan follows a slim lead westward across an unfamiliar sea. When pirates attack his ship, leaving him with injuries too severe for his werewolf to heal, he comes face to face with the most unexpected of rescuers—Finora, her two, half-human children, and the biggest damned dog he’s ever seen.

Tristan and Finora’s attraction is instant, undeniable, and hopeless. Finora is pulled to the sea, Tristan is tied to the land. But Finora can help him complete his mission, and share one night of searing, heartbreaking passion. And memories only the deepest of betrayals could shatter…

Warning: Contains Celtic legends, seven-year curses, dragons with bad attitudes, imperiled children, a grumpy goddess, and wave upon wave of soul-searing pleasure.

A well woven fantasy.
By Carol Braswellon February 14, 2017

This amazing urban fantasy is hot, hot, hot. The detailed sexual scenes in no way take away from the continuing story of sea creatures, werewolves, humans, and dragons. This author has put all these creatures together in a very well told story that keeps you turning pages. I am not a fan of fantasy, however, the author has woven a compelling story into this series. I am only sorry that this is the first of the series I have read. Good job.

Without his forbidden touch, her light will disappear forever.

Guardians of the Light, Book 4

Plagued with nightmares of a goblin child tormented by monsters—and with her usual cures having no effect—dream faerie Pryseis journeys to the Shadowlands to heal the child in person. Even though doing so risks the wrath of the faerie council. And, if she’s away from home too long, her very existence.

Caught and imprisoned by an ungrateful goblin sorcerer, she’s now trapped underground, chained, her despair growing as her time ticks down. Warmed by the memory of a man she has only touched in dreams.

Benilo ta Myran drained his spirit healing powers during the war, but he has no choice. The beautiful faerie in his dreams is in trouble, and not even his worried king and queen can stop him from trying to save her before the darkness snuffs out her light.

Finally they are together—chained side by side in a goblin dungeon. Their only hope for escape is to break the law to merge their powers in a ritual so intensely erotic, it binds them for life. However short and nightmarish that life might be…

Warning: Beware beautiful faeries and hot elves appearing in your dreams. They may lead you astray…and steal your heart.

I've enjoyed all the books in this series. Each protagonist & their mate with each new book are well-developed &unique persons in their own right. This book well carries the series story line forward. We are newly introduced to old players in the Shadowlands, & thus gather new insights of the whole. I love the Fairy light & fancy.

On what should have been Verdeen’s proudest day, she is blocked from advanced warrior training because no war mare chooses to bond with her. Burning with humiliation, she accepts a lesser assignment to the Isle of Ice, serving as bodyguard to human riever, Daq Aryk.

Verdeen’s never paid much attention to men, so focused was she on her training. But she quickly realizes hieing off into a distant wilderness with Aryk is a bad idea. He makes her lose all focus and perspective.

Aryk faces a difficult task: molding six warring clans into a peaceful whole. He’s got nothing against women warriors, but Verdeen is young and inexperienced, her beauty a potentially fatal distraction. She’s a shield-maiden, not a bedmate. But the way she melts at his every touch erodes all his good intentions…and sense.

One kiss unleashes the kind of feverish desire that should occur only once in a lifetime—with a mate. But as their quest takes ever more dangerous twists and turns, their bond could be the one thing that unites a nation. Or make Aryk’s worst nightmare a blood-soaked reality.

Warning: Contains fire and ice, never-gratuitous sex and violence, sword play and self-play, spying and lying, noble intentions and betrayal. In other words, a rollicking good roll in the proverbial hay.


reviews riever's heart

Wildes, Renee. Riever's Heart. Samhain. (Guardians of Light, Bk. 5). 2011. c.214p. eISBN 9781609285890. EPUB $5.50. FANTASY ROMANCE

After a bloody battle with his fellow Isadorikjans, Daq Aryk decides to travel to the south to get help in uniting the tribes of the frozen north. Aid comes in the form of Verdeen, a feisty Elven champion who is struggling with balancing the warrior of her personality with the awakening woman. As they journey toward Aryk's home, they must contend with Verdeen's skepticism, the elements, and enemies, to say nothing of the growing heat between them. This historical fantasy romance steams its way through a traditional hero's journey home. Readers will enjoy the layers of lovemaking that are balanced with an exciting story line. Between the bloodsport and the intense relationships, there is really something for every romance or fantasy enthusiast here.

Verdict: If you like your icy landscapes with some hot love scenes, this is the book for you! Well-drawn characters with lots of facets placed in exciting situations; a fun page-turner.—Emily Thompson, MSI, Ann Arbor, MI

Worst case of mistaken identity EVER.

As a teacher, Maili is adept at juggling multiple tasks, but this is ridiculous. Erotic dreams make her sleep anything but restful. Her father wants to marry her off to a neighboring chieftain's son. Her grandmother's whispered blasphemy about doubting the gods has the local volcano threatening to split wide open.

As she prays in the temple for mercy on her grandmother, Maili expects the mountain to smoke and rumble. She doesn't expect Afu himself to pop through a dark fissure and squash her flat.

The last thing Dax remembers is vowing to prevent his queen's assassination. He wakes up in an island paradise, where the primitive natives worship the statue of a troll named Afu. And they expect him—their fyre god incarnate—to stop their cranky volcano from blowing up.

As an incentive, they've given him a maiden sacrifice/bride, a dark-eyed beauty who's just as determined to seduce him as he is to return home in one piece.

While she's less than thrilled to be traded like a chicken, one thing is certain. Dax is the man in her dreams...and she's hell bent on making them come true. Or her people may die.

Warning: Contains erotic dreams, volcanic-hot love scenes, one edgy F/F interrogation scene and some self-loving. Also treason, black sorcery and an evil witch doctor who shrinks heads.


reviews god of fyre mountain

5.0 out of 5 stars
Fun, Exotic Read
By K. Hernandezon March 15, 2013

I was completely swept away by GOD OF FYRE MOUNTAIN. I hadn't read any of the other books in the series yet, but I do plan to go back and read them now. The characters are very well-drawn. The hot, "god" of the mountain is flawed, strong, loveable and yummy--everything I like to read about in my heroes. The heroine is also strong, smart, sweet, loyal and determined. She is willing to sacrifice herself to save her people but the fyre mountain god has something else in mind. Danger from man and nature ensues. I highly recommend it!

A warrior born to kill. A witch born to heal. An evil that could destroy them both.

Guardians of the Light, Book 7

Valkyn, captured by pirates and turned over to the usurper Lord Zurvan and beaten within an inch of his life, despairs of ever seeing his sons again. The only ray of light that pierces his violent soul is Mari, the witch Zurvan sends to heal him between each tortuous round of interrogation.

Every time she enters Valkyn’s cell, Mari gathers her life magic around her like a shield. It does no good—his dark soul is a formidable opponent to her light. There’s no denying Valkyn makes her long-widowed body remember exactly how long she’s been alone. But she has a mission of her own. Valkyn could be the key to restoring the boy king to his rightful throne.

Mari has known only one man. Valkyn has never bedded the same wench twice. Yet resisting the siren call of desire is a losing battle. Yet even if they manage to overthrow Lord Zurvan, the real battle lies ahead—convincing Mari that in the place where dark and light meet and touch, forever can exist.

Warning: Contains a peacenik witch, a battle-weary warrior, lots of herbs, spells, and magic, a selkie hunting for his skin, and blistering hot love scenes. Handle with Ove-Gloves, or stock up on aloe. Your choice.

By Evampireon August 11, 2015

Well written scenes and details paint vivid images bringing the story to life and the suspense draws readers in and refuses to let go while the complex plot, interactions with a goddess and some unexpected twists spice things up.

The author has created a fascinating alternate world fantasy with some traditional elements as well as unique elements that blend together to keep things interesting. The story and the intriguing characters had me enthralled from the beginning and I am looking forward to more adventures in the Guardian of Light world.

Sleeping with the a time of war.

With the destruction of their main medical facility, the Daynavian Resistance orders operative Lonan Tremayne to commandeer the Imperium medical frigate, IMF Intervention and seduce the chief medical officer to come along. Rumor has Sub-Commander Seppala Amundsen disenchanted with her Imperium bosses and ready to defect. One problem. She's Antithian; her people enslaved Daynavians for generations. Lonan's squad would rather kill her than turn her, just on general principle—orders be damned.

Trauma surgeon Seppala Amundsen has had a bellyful of war, completely fed up with the autocratic Imperium that betrayed her. A friend tricks Seppala into spending her three-day leave at Harmonies, a notorious Bregorian pleasure palace. She's way out of her league. Meeting Lonan Tremayne should have been the highlight of her stay, but he's not Imperium. Is he interested or using her for some other purpose?

It only takes one "accident" for Lonan to suspect someone wants Seppala dead. But why? Now he not only has to turn her, but keep her alive long enough to do so. But is it a professional assassin...or one of Lonan's own?
