Contemporary with a Touch of Extraordinary

A made man in the Italian Mafia. An immortal blood demon.
I never imagined he’d become my dark salvation.

My midlife awakening wasn’t going as planned.
I’d wanted to prove I was more than a mousey professor,
that I could handle life outside the walls of academia.
Turns out, I’d underestimated the real world.

My new boss was arrogant, domineering, and dangerous,
and he turned me into a live wire that sparked under his thirsty stare.
But he wasn’t just thirsty for my body. He craved my blood.

I should have quit, should have run away screaming.
Instead, I ran right into Marco DeVita’s arms.


Heritage. Family. Blood. The bonds that had tied me to the Boston underworld for almost a century were unbreakable. Or so I thought.

Someone in my crew had been stealing from me, had betrayed our family. But to ferret out the snake, I’d needed an expert to find proof.

Anna Barone was a distraction I couldn’t afford. Her brilliant mind,
hot temper, and even hotter body made my fangs ache with need.

I was trapped between my desire and my duty to protect.
Because in my world, everything comes at a price.


HER DARK SALVATION is the first book in the Bonded in Blood series.
Each book is an interconnected, standalone Paranormal Mafia Romance with a guaranteed HEA.

This novella was a perfect combination of contemporary and paranormal. I can't wait to read the second book in the Demons Among Us series!

This is one of my favorite reads of the year! Lush prose that feels like a glass of wine at the end of a long day.

This was a beautifully written and engaging novella. I loved the ornately descriptive prose, which really sold the setting in a run-down Gothic mansion.

The Siren's Song was one of the best novellas I have read, packing a good punch of emotions that feels simultaneously too short but perfectly complete as is.

The Siren's Song

The Siren’s Song filled me up with joy and peacefulness. I had the most wonderful and magical time while reading this lovely and beautiful story.

The Siren's Song

I liked this novella as well as the previous one in the series. Katelyn Brehm portrays mythical creatures as humane as possible, they seamlessly blend into society without being obnoxious.
