Can her salvation save his soul?

Fragile (with RaeLynn Blue)

Cayla was not the typical gun shot victim. A quiet waitress, she was brutally gunned down coming out of the neighborhood corner store. There was nothing taken, there was no motive, just a fragile, broken woman lying on the cold, broken sidewalk.

Kale was not the easiest cop to get along with. Biting and sarcastic, he worked alone caring for little but the job. There was something about this case that Kale just couldn’t let go. There was something about this victim that called him unlike any other.


Dark Waters Anthology (with Jeanie Johnson & Jayha Leigh, RaeLynn Blue and Aliyah Burke)


Overboard by Shara Azod

Being thrown overboard off a luxury liner by her so-called aunt and cousin was bad enough, but being rescued by a creature that shouldn’t even exist took the cake. Mix in the infuriating man’s insistence she was his “perfect mate” and Dallas had had just about enough. All she wanted to do was to get back to Texas and bring her aunt and cousin to justice before the evil duo could get their hands on her money. But first she had to get past an extremely adamant, extremely horny selkie.

Thane was more than satisfied at the mate the Fates had provided for him. Hot and feisty, full of life and a body that made him want to cry. All he had to do was to get the daft woman to see they were destined to be together. Unfortunately, she was human, so Thane had his work cut out for him.

A Love Reborn by RaeLynn Blue

On the isle of Aquatrion, there is a legend that speaks of the Sirens’ gift to those who drown at sea. Once one has been consumed by the waters, for his sacrifice, he will be turned into a selkie—both man and seal, to live amongst the sea, for his soul would forever be tied to both, that to which had been born, and to that which had died.

Kikomo mourns the death of her husband-in-waiting, Takumi. Lost saving her life during a storm at sea, Takumi’s body was swallowed up the roaring waves and choppy seas. A year later, Kikomo’s father demands she marry the local merchant, a fisherman and a man of great political power. Distressed, she flees her home to the sea. There she cries seven tears in to the sea. At once a selkie appears, and he bares a striking resemblance to Takumi…

Faith’s Tears by Aliyah Burke

Can a woman who lives her life based on logic and tangible things trust in the love and belief of a man claiming to be a magical being, a selkie?

From the moment his gaze landed on her dark beauty, Rowan Kilgour knew she was his life-mate. Despite his feelings, he knew she deserved a chance to experience life before she was tied to him forever. So he waited. Seventeen years. And now that he’s found her again, he’ll be damned before he lets her go.

Faith Henderson still wore the pendant given to her years ago by a senior in high school when she was a sophomore. While visiting the Isle of Skye she is reunited with him. His dark hair, muscular body, and dark chocolate mousse eyes still had the power to turn her into a puddle. Add to that his thick Scottish brogue and she was putty.

Can Rowan convince Faith that their lives are intertwined? Will she get past her disbelief in magic to see him for what he truly is? And accept him for it? Or will a darkness from her past keep them separated for all eternity?

Sometimes all destiny needs is salt water, in Rowan’s case all he needed was… Faith’s Tears

Sealed With a Fist by Jeanie Johnson and Jahya Leigh

Is it really so bad when the bane of your existence a) is a bigot; b) hates animals unless they're dipped in batter; c) cannot swim; and d) keeps a running commentary of insults aimed at you?

It is when you're a Selkie and your ball and chain is bigoted against anything in the water that doesn't have a motor or sails. Well, that's not exactly true because Yonder also hates sailboats. Ever since those meddling damn dolphins saved the feisty human girl from certain death she's been part of Aonghus's life.

Why does he have to get stuck with the surly ass woman who is a) human and b) human, and c) did he mention human? Oh yeah, because his Da—the Emperor of the Selkie and democratically-elected president of all water creatures—made Yonder his responsibility as part of his punishment.

Since she has nowhere else to go and he cannot drown her, she lives with them. Ever since she woke from the healing sleep she's brought nothing but chaos into his life. If he's not serving as her sounding board for her long list of 'why killing people is not always bad', he's serving as her impromptu bodyguard. The last thing Yonder needed was a bodyguard. No, what she needed was a bail bondsmen, a parole officer, and a priest. He cannot even count the number of times that he's been tempted to throw her to those shifters that have a hit out on her (which is pretty much every single animal in the Animal Kingdom including some humans) or outright kill her.

Thierry's Angel

In New Orleans, where old Southern lineages root as deep and tangled as the haughty Cypress, two powerful families become entrenched in a battle to preserve pedigrees. For the past nine years, Thierry Chevalier, the strikingly handsome, well-bred, polished son of one of the oldest, most powerful white families in Louisiana, has been harboring an impassioned desire to captivate the woman of his dreams. His desire, Angelique Dubois.

But when opportunity opens, their fates are magnetized. The tempest of passion, power and pride that erupts is more sweeping than a steamy Gulf Coast monsoon.

Remy Goes to Therapy


Exciting sequel to Thierry's Angel!

But then, he had never met a woman to get under his skin the way Regina has. The lovely psychiatrist has Remy hungry for more than a passing fling, but can he melt her icy defenses and find the woman beneath?

I sincerely hope you complete the series. Each of the Chevalier cousins deserves to have his story told. Lady Rienne's past should also be explored and exposed to correctly connect the dots of this story.

I am looking for the next book which was listed a few week ago as coming soon. title The Taming of Katrina

Shara Azod said...

The Taming of Katrina has been put on hold for the foreseeable future. Sorry.

What happened with Remy Goes to Therapy? It seemed kind of short, and I read on I/M Romance Readers site that it was released without your permission.

Shopping in Italy said...

I want to go on record again as saying I really enjoyed the first two stories and I think it would be ashame not to complete the series. I've become quite a fan Ms. Azod.

Shara Azod said...

Thank you, I really appreciate your support. At this time however, a continuation of this series is not possible. Believe me, it is as hard on me as the readers who have been so wonderfully supportive, maybe more so. I will definitely revisit the series as some date, I just regret it will be at least two years before I can.

Shopping in Italy said...

How unfortunate. As a television produce, I had an ulterior motive in suggesting you complete the series. Having said that, I do appreciate that things happen and sometimes projects are delayed. And in some cases they simply can not be completed. Good luck with your future endeavors Ms. Azod

Shara Azod said...

I appreciate the, I really do. I wish like heck I could release the two others that are semi-finished, but there were serious...irreconcilable differences and I cannot get out of the contract. I have shifted my focus to a Georgia based series as of now. Hope you take a look see and enjoy it as much as Thierry and his cousins.

Shopping in Italy said...

Contractual issues I understand. I'll be sure to check out the other series. However, I would like to revisit the Chevalier's at a later date. I really think there is something there. It so accurately reflects the caste system in Nola, that I think we could do something with it. Can you be contacted privately from this site or some other?

Shara Azod said...

Absolutely! shara.azod@gmail.com
I am very familiar with Southern caste systems, although admittedly, the ones in Louisiana fascinates me to not end. As a dark skinned woman from a family with light skin good hair roots(if you catch my underlying meaning), it has always tickled me, infuriated me, and in the end amused me. Because I was a first born, certain family members made "allowances" for the color of my skin, which was always weird, because I saw how the other dark skinned grandchildren and great-grandchildren were treated and/or referred to. I wish more authors would delve into the weird subculture we have going on down here.

Shopping in Italy said...

Again, thank you for getting back to me. I've emailed you and I'm looking forward to your response.
