The Passion Season, Book I of the Covalent Series
by Libby Doyle
A superhuman warrior from another dimension. An FBI agent with a troubled past. A search for a killer that uncovers a depraved cult.
When Zan O’Gara investigates a ritual murder, she meets the only man who’s ever reached beyond her emotional defenses. Little does she know he harbors a dangerous secret.
Barakiel accepted his solitary life after the rulers of his homeworld banished him to Earth, but his encounter with Zan changes everything. He knows he should stay away from her before his enemies make her a target. No matter. There’s no taming the unruly passion of a Covalent warrior.
As Zan’s investigation brings her closer to the truth about her lover, Barakiel realizes his presence on Earth has placed its most vulnerable citizens in danger. Compelled to protect them, he undertakes a series of duties he may not survive, even as Zan rescues him from a deadened heart.
The Pain Season, Book II of the Covalent Series
by Libby Doyle
On the night of the equinox, Zan O’Gara learns monsters are real.
When Zan can no longer deny her lover is hiding things, she confronts him. Barakiel assures her he will soon share his secrets but she dreads the day, afraid the love of her life is connected to a ritual murder. Her heart won’t allow her to believe he could harm an innocent man. The truth is worse than she could have imagined.
As Barakiel’s power as a warrior grows, so does the strength of his father’s obsession with him. Lucifer spreads his dark tendrils through the Earthly Realm using a network of depraved men, and Barakiel soon realizes his love has drawn a target on Zan’s back. Events at the equinox make this clear to Zan as well. Barakiel has lied to her.
And so begins a season of pain and rage. A season of traitors and war. And love. Like the elemental forces that made him, Barakiel’s love does not end.
