Release the Djinni, Jenny Schwartz , 2014 single work novella fantasy romance

'Niki is a djinni granted freedom by a young boy’s innocent wish. It is a freedom that scares her and she retreats far from her Persian home to the cool, ivory tower detachment of Oxford. But when the young boy is kidnapped and even his guardian angel can’t find him, Niki, with her half-demon powers and untried heart, is the only person who can save him. But can she save herself from falling in love with an angel?'

Up in Flames, Jenny Schwartz , 2014 single work novella romance fantasy

'Diane Lee is a newly qualified Mage for Hire with a To Do List that ought to include hiding under the blankets. Bad enough she still hasn’t bought her mom’s birthday present, but now that list item has been replaced with “fall in love”. As if she had time! And then there is Number One on the list, “Save the President’s life”. Uh, what? Diane’s organized day goes up in flames as she encounters a very sexy, presidential bodyguard and a salamander with a sensual desire to bliss out.'

Embracing the Ghoul, Jenny Schwartz , 2014 single work novella fantasy romance

'Doctor Carla Richel is a ghoul, which means pain and suffering energize her. It’s a curse she’s worked hard to defeat, turning it into a positive by specializing in emergency medicine. But it still blights her love life because who can she trust with the secret of her other-nature?

'Rhys Draig is a New York police captain and a fierce dragon shifter, determined to save his people and his city from the disaster of a demon on the loose. To do so, he needs help. But help comes in the form of a sexy, powerful doctor who distracts and entices him more than he ever imagined his dragon nature could be tempted.'
