The Passion Season
by Libby Doyle
In ancient times, powerful aliens walked the Earth. Now, only one remains.
Exiled for the sins of his father, Barakiel accepted his solitary life until Special Agent Zan O’Gara showed up at his door investigating a ritual murder. He suspects his father is behind the gruesome crime and knows he should stay away from the beautiful FBI agent, but his discipline fails him.
Zan believes Barakiel is a wealthy businessman with information vital to her case. As her investigation brings her closer to the truth about him, Barakiel learns his presence on Earth has placed vulnerable humans in danger. Compelled to protect them, he undertakes a series of duties he may not survive.
“Barakiel is a fantastic hero—weird, complex, enigmatic, but also compassionate and sensitive.”
The Pain Season
by Libby Doyle
On the night of the equinox, Zan O’Gara learns monsters are real.
When Zan can no longer deny Barakiel is hiding things, she confronts him. He assures her he will share his secrets, but Zan dreads the day, afraid the love of her life is connected to a ritual murder. 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 a network of depraved men and Barakiel soon realizes his love has drawn a target on Zan’s back. Events at the autumnal 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.
“A commendable follow-up with otherworldly action, down-to-earth melodrama, and sensuality in between.” — Kirkus Reviews
