"Unique, suspenseful, tempting, and oh so much fun! Kate SeRine knows how to pack a punch!" -- Donna Grant, New York Times bestselling author

You reap what you sow. . .

Saying Nate Grimm has a dark past is an understatement. Fortunately, no one's bothered to look too closely at the Fairytale Management Authority's lead detective and part-time Reaper. And that's the way Nate wants to keep it. For after centuries of torment and loneliness, he's finally found happiness with the hot and hard-charging love of his life, Tess ""Red"" Little.

Of course, his love for Tess is the reason there's a posse of Reaper judges after him, led by a sadistic bastard acquainted with Nate from once upon a time. Now, Tess will pay the price for Nate's transgressions unless Nate severs his ties to the transplanted Tales--and Tess--forever. His enemy has the advantage in speed, malice and brutality. But the Reapers have underestimated the depth of Nate's love and devotion. And the fury of his wrath. . . "

Author Q&A
Telling Tales

Around two hundred years ago a magical duel went awry, transplanting hundreds of fairytale characters from Make Believe into the human world of the Here and Now. And in 2012, I introduced the first of these “Tales” to readers with RED, sharing how Tess “Red” Little and Nate Grimm found their happily ever after while solving murders, dispensing justice, and keeping more troublesome Tales from exposing their secret lives among us Ordinaries.

And now with the release of the fourth book in the series, EVER AFTER, I’m thrilled to finally tell the story of Gideon Montrose, the mysterious and sexy fairytale bodyguard who has been wooing fans with his loyalty, honor, and gallantry since he stepped onto the page in my second Transplanted Tales novel, THE BETTER TO SEE YOU.

Surprisingly, I’d originally planned for Gideon to be just a throwaway character. But I fell in love with him after only a couple of sentences, and so gave him a bigger role in the second book. The reader response was so overwhelmingly positive, that I brought him back in the third novel, ALONG CAME A SPIDER. And when it came time to choose the protagonist for the fourth book in the series, it was a no-brainer! Gideon had experienced a lot of tragedy and heartbreak in his life and it was time to give him the happily ever after he so deserved.

Enter Arabella Locksley, a notorious thief that Gideon is ordered to apprehend only to discover she’s none other than the feisty, unpredictable woman he knew back in Make Believe as Robin Hood. Now, torn between his happiness at finding his former love alive and his anger over the lies that tore them apart, Gideon’s loyalties are put to the test. But it soon becomes apparent he’s just as likely as ever to have his heart stolen by the beautiful thief.

I think readers who have fallen for Gideon are going to love Luke Rogan, the hero of DECEIVED, the first novel in my new DARK ALLIANCE romantic suspense series, releasing from Kensington in summer 2016.

Luke’s former career in the Special Forces makes him a valuable asset to Temple Knight & Associates, a multi-billion dollar private equity firm operating as a front for the Knights Templar—modern-day warriors who’ve been secretly recruiting over the centuries to rebuild their Order as it once was before corruption and greed diverted them from their noble calling to protect the innocent. Now they work outside the law to thwart those who would bring the world to its knees.

In DECEIVED, Luke’s mission is simple: secure Sarah Scoffield and her young son Eli and bring them back to headquarters. Problem is, Sarah and her son seem to hold the key to the Templars’ undoing. And someone else has made it clear they’ll stop at nothing to capture them. Determined to deliver Sarah and Eli before the Templars’ enemies can get their hands on them, Luke’s made a vow to keep his distance and not get too close. But Sarah’s gentle love soon begins to thaw Luke’s cold heart and awakens in him passions he’d thought dead and buried long ago…

I’m looking forward to sharing Luke and Sarah’s story and introducing readers to the exciting world of the DARK ALLIANCE!
