I do enjoy a sexy vampire or shifter story. But I gotta say, I love the magical and conniving Fae creatures, which is why I chose them for the Halven Rising series. The Fae in the Halven Rising series have a slightly different mythology than the typical pixie or brownie sometimes found in Fae stories. One theory of the origin of Fae suggests they descended from angels, yet they’re different from Nephilim. That small piece of mythology gave me something to run with.
In the Halven Rising series, the Fae were ordained into existence by a higher power and given magical abilities through their relation to angels. Just as there are said to have been battles in heaven, so too are there battles in Faery. It doesn’t hurt that Fae believe they’re superior to humans. Especially, when they find themselves falling in love with one. That’s when the real tension and magical sparks fly!

Some love stories require great sacrifice…
Humans are beneath her kind, but Fae princess Theodora Rainer must escape the Fae realm, or marry a man she despises.
California farmer Alex Rosales is the responsible one. He stays out of the trouble his older brother gets into—someone has to hang onto the farm. But when Alex finds Theodora hiding out on his property, caution is nowhere in sight. She has the beauty of an angel, with deep secrets Alex can’t penetrate.
No matter how hard he tries, Theodora won’t let Alex in. But when he breaks his own rules and invites her to stay with him, he glimpses her heart—only to discover something powerful seeks to tear them apart.
