'Every decade, twelve young women from my island are gifted to the monsters.

'This year, I’m in the line-up. But unlike the others, I want to be taken. Correction, I need to be taken—for my sister's sake. It's my fault she was chosen during the last offering, and I have to find out if she’s alive.

'I thought I was ready, but nothing could have prepared me for the four monsters who claim me. A vampire, wolf shifter, demon, and siren. They're terrifying, powerful, and infuriatingly arrogant...and now these alphas are fixated on me.

'Turns out, finding my sister won’t be as easy as I’d hoped. Now that I’m in their world, the monsters think I’ll become one of them. I’m in their monster trials, and they’re going to play with me until I turn.

'These a**holes think it’ll be easy to break me, but they picked the wrong girl. Because I’m already a monster. They just don’t know it yet.' (Publication summary)

'All monsters must belong to a house. Good thing I don’t play by the rules.

The monsters won’t break me. I’m going to find my sister, and if participating in the Week of Orash is my best chance of finding her, I’ll fight. I’ll face off against the newbloods and let the alphas from the monster houses think they can have me.

But I don’t belong to anyone. Not even the four terrifying monsters who hold me captive—Kade the wolf shifter, Asher the demon, Darian the siren, and Locke the vampire. Or at least, that’s what I used to think. Now I’m not so sure. Somehow these four males are melting through my defenses, and I'm starting to realize that I need them as much as they need me.

As the secrets of the Katakin continue to unravel, I find myself wondering who the true monsters are. Nightmarish creatures named the ‘outliers’ wreak havoc on the city, and enemies walk the cobbled streets, like whispers in the darkness. My sister isn't the only one who needs saving, and I’ll have to decide if I’m willing to embrace the power inside myself, or if I let the monsters burn.

This is the second book in the Her Cursed Protectors series, and a fun reverse harem fantasy novel for audiences aged 18 years and older. **Language warning **Multiple POV' (Publication summary)

'An unbreakable bond. An ancient curse. A monster to ruin kingdoms.

'We survived the outliers, but now Kade, Asher, Darian, Locke, and I are in the fae kingdom with a tortured prince in our grasp. The fae hold the secrets to breaking the curse over Katakin, and I intend to find out what they are. But the fae realm is as perilous as Katakin, and those secrets? Yeah, we’ll have to pay for them with blood.

'As I get closer to finding my sister, I learn to accept the magic that runs in my veins. But I’m about to discover that I’m not immune to the curse like I thought I was. Those four monsters of mine? Yeah, they’re about to find out just what kind of monster they’re bonded to. Turns out, I might not be the Katakin monsters’ salvation. I might just be their downfall.' (Publication summary)

y separately published work icon The Wars of Monsters Mia Hartson , Golden Grove : Mia Hartson , 2024 27858408 2024 single work novel fantasy

'Two lost sisters. A war that will define two worlds. A curse that demands a price.

'As outliers sweep through Katakin City killing those who oppose Warrick, the monsters are left bleeding and wounded, forced to hide away and prepare for the coming war in secret. I'm one of them now, and my mates and I have to play our parts in what's to come. The monsters of the rebellion are relying on me to use my power to fight, and Locke, Kade, Asher, and Darian must finally step up and become the alphas Katakin needs.

'But when the war comes, the outliers see both the monsters and the fae as enemies. If we are to have any hope of surviving, the fae king will have to decide whether centuries of hate and the desire for revenge is worth the annihilation of two races.

'Breaking the curse over Katakin could be the answer, and I need to figure out the secrets embedded in my mind. I went to Katakin to save my sister, but now I'll have to make a choice: Hold on to everything I ever believed or let us become who we need to be to save two worlds…no matter the price.' (Publication summary)
