Just because it’s happening in your head doesn’t mean it isn’t real…

“With Exposed in Darkness, Heather Sunseri has crafted a sophisticated and absorbing thriller enhanced by a high-stakes horse-racing backdrop and a hard-won romance you’ll relish.” – Kathy Altman, USA Today
Just days before the running of the biggest thoroughbred horse race in the world, an act of bioterrorism kills Kentucky’s lieutenant governor, and former FBI Special Agent Brooke Fairfax receives a video of the murder from her long-time anonymous source. When Brooke discovers domestic terrorists are actually after the governor—her late husband’s brother—and that the radicals are eyeing more targets, she heads to Kentucky to stop the threat.
Shortly after the political assassination, the FBI zeroes in on one person: international mogul Declan O’Roark. Though Brooke has been out of the game since her husband was murdered, her former boss thinks she is the perfect candidate to connect Declan to the crime.
Despite the FBI clearly establishing means and opportunity, Declan remains unfazed; his motives have nothing to do with murder, but with getting closer to Brooke Fairfax. And Brooke finds the case becoming even more unclear as she falls for the FBI’s number one suspect.
Exposed in Darkness is the first in a brand new series. Brooke’s and Declan’s adventures with crime and love continue with additional books in the series:
Cut in Darkness
Covered in Darkness
Shot in Darkness
Desired in Darkness
Protected in Darkness – a special In Darkness novella and the sequel to Cut in Darkness
Los Angeles County park ranger, Jack Carter, is about to discover that not all is as it seems in his tranquil life.

The undead kind.

Now searching for answers and help for his brother, Jack finds himself on the run from a lethal group of government agents—and from something monstrous that stalks his woods. Something not of this world…and hungry for flesh.

Ever since my parents died in the demon war, I’ve paid my way through life by using magic to con people. It’s not right, but a girl’s gotta do what she can to survive.
Unfortunately, my latest con has left me smack dab in the middle of a murder scene. Now, a coven of angry mages thinks I’m the killer. In order to clear my name, I have to team up with an infuriatingly sexy warlock whose powers are far darker than he admits. Throw in a string of related murders and a vexed vampire clan, and I’m up to my eyeballs in danger.
But that’s not even the worst of it. When I get too close to the real killer, he casts a life-threatening curse on my grandmother. Before, I just wanted to save my own butt, but now I’ll do whatever it takes to track him down—even if it means following him through monstrous dimensions.
Because I don’t play nice with magic. And when you mess with Grandma, you become #1 on my sh*t list.
