This is a combination of stories I have written. We could all live in peace if we would just listen! None of this would change unless every American gets involved with the political process. It is your right, it is your duty, and in many circumstances, it could mean your life! What goes around comes around. Remember this! The next day, as all the other recruits answered reveille and hit the grid, Morgan and Burger were handing the company commander a note that in effect said they were helpless and hopeless. Reality is an illusion, albeit a persistent one. With a crack of thunder, the owls exodus was almost marked by the rising sun. The Rain Dog stretches her nose with her neck arched toward the sky, and the raindrops begin to fall.

Love At First Bite Nightclub dancer Chloe Lamoureaux just met the man of her dreams: Aidan Raines is charming, considerate, rich, and hot. Of course, he's a little mysterious about his age. And his favorite drink. And he's not much for sunlight. But he's asked her to marry him, and she's ready to do it. Sure, she has a few secrets too--but they'll have plenty of time to work things out while they're living happily ever after. Right? Her identical twin sister, Chuck, isn't so sure. Maybe reporting for the local Bigfoot-sighting tabloid doesn't make her an expert, but to Chuck, Aidan and his brother Sebastian look like honest-to-Dracula vampires. Especially Sebastian: beguiling, seductive, and just a hint of dangerous. Maybe she wouldn't mind him taking a little taste. But with Chloe's life in the balance, she has to know--do they want hot love or hot blood? Or maybe. . .a little of both?

My name is Lily Quinn. I'm a bounty hunter. I work for the College of wizards to hunt down the monsters that go bump in the night. If they're hot, sometimes I bump right back. Volume 1 includes the first 4 books of the Lily Quinn series, plus the Valentine's Day special story: - Book 1: Wanted Undead or Alive - My name is Lily Quinn. I'm a bounty hunter. I work for the College of wizards to hunt down the monsters that go bump in the night. If they're hot, sometimes I bump right back. There's a vampire in my city and my employers want him dead. His creator, too, if I can find the guy. I don't have much to go on, but I think I can oblige. Vampires are deadly and beautiful - just the way I like them. I'm going to need a few things first, though, starting with a man and ending with a stake. I just hope it will be enough. - Book 2: All's Fae in Love and War - My name is Lily Quinn. I'm a half-succubus bounty hunter. I work for the College, a secret cabal of wizards who pay me well to deal with monsters. You wouldn't believe my resume - or my little black book. But speaking of books, some kind of ancient tome has gone missing from the College's library. I'm not sure why this book is so important, but the wizards are offering a huge reward of alchemically transmuted gold to have it returned, along with the thief who stole it. So now I've got a lead on an Unseelie fairy who likes leather and a challenge. What a coincidence. So do I. I'm going to have a great time questioning this thief about where to find the book... but I have to catch him first. - Book 3: The Beast Within - Let me introduce myself. My name is Lilith Quinn, but you can just call me Lily. I'm a sex-powered half-succubus bounty hunter working for a College of sorcerers who pay me in gold to deal with monsters. My life just gets weirder from there. There's a werewolf loose in the city. I don't know who the hell he is, but it's my job to catch the guy before he can hurt anyone or spread his demonic curse. The College wants me to take him alive, but werewolves are strong, fast and tough as hell to catch. This is going to be a challenging hunt and I'll need a lot of power to finish it. You remember what I need for power, right? So let's get started. - Book 4: In Too Deep - My name is Lily Quinn and I'm the best monster hunter in the city. The College of wizards pays me a lot of money to track down and deal with the supernatural dangers that infest the mortal world. But I wasn't always as good at it as I am now. My first job was Adahr, a nix who likes to steal from humans and flaunt his powers. He's the one who got away. Now Adahr's back. He's being chased by Remy Saville, a French bounty hunter who's been after the water spirit for years and is determined to finally finish the job. Remy's handsome and experienced, but there's no way I'm letting him or anyone else beat me to the nix this time. Adahr's mine. So let the games begin. I'm going to play dirty. - Max's Long Night: A Lily Quinn short story - My name is Maxwell Ferguson. Max. My best friend is Lily Quinn... but she's probably not like your best friend. For one, she's not entirely human. Lily's half succubus and uses the power that sex gives her to hunt down monsters on behalf of the College of wizards. So let's just say that being Lily's friend can get really interesting. Now she's invited me out to dinner for Valentine's Day. The restaurant is nice and everything seems pretty normal so far, but there's no way things will go that smoothly. You know Lily better than that. What have I gotten myself into this time? These and all Lily Quinn stories contain graphic depictions of sexual acts. Lots of them. There's other stuff, too, like fun stories and crazy adventures, but these books are definitely for adults only. You have been warned. Enjoy!"
