Welcome to Blackbird, a small Midwest town with a big paranormal problem.
As an Observer, Seth is tasked with identifying lost souls. An unenviable job under normal circumstances, but the situation takes a turn for the worse when Blackbird’s Guardian calls it quits. With no one to take her place, Seth finds himself partnered with Desmond, a powerful and intimidating Warrior, who sees the downtrodden Observer as a liability.
Desmond’s fears are all but validated when a magical disturbance draws even more Discordant creatures to the area, including a deadly femme fatale from Seth’s past, and Bogie, a demon with a heart of gold and a tenuous grasp on the English language.
To save Blackbird (and eventually the world), the agents must set aside their differences and team up with a ragtag group of local mystics. Together, they might win the day, or they just might make things a whole lot worse.
Chloe Winslow didn’t leave Pittsburgh – she escaped. Running from a life destroyed by lies, she finds herself starting over in the small town of Maple Ridge, Vermont. If she can keep her past a secret and keep her spirits high, she might just make it through her first year teaching at Sugar Pine Elementary. She learned her lesson about getting too involved in her students’ lives – this time, she’s going to keep her distance. Too bad she can’t help herself when it comes to her handsome, surly, standoffish neighbor and his troubled daughter.
Dylan Cunningham and his daughter, Dahlia, have been betrayed in the worst possible way. Between his broken heart and his daughter’s silence, Dylan has no time to worry about the attractive woman who’s moved in next door. But that neighbor also happens to be Dahlia’s new teacher, and he can’t just ignore her. And even though he’s vowed to never risk his heart again, Chloe is making it harder and harder to keep that vow.
Can Chloe mend their broken home, or are they just begging history to repeat itself?

He wasn’t supposed to kiss me.
My heart wasn’t supposed to pound.
We weren’t supposed to spend the night together—the hottest night of my life.
One night turns into a snowed-in weekend away, and even the blizzard of the century can’t cool the fire between us. I can’t get enough—of his smile, of his body, of the way he makes me feel.

But none of it matters when I’m in his arms.
I know he’s made mistakes. I know his wounds are deep, and he doesn’t trust easily. I know he doesn’t believe he could ever be enough to make me happy, but he could.
