Tales of Akatsuki

Book One: Kitsune

A Kitsune dreaming of a wider world. A prince seeking purpose. A love that defies the odds.

Trapped in a dull and unfulling role as palace maid, Rin dreams of rising higher in the immortal court. Determined to change her lot in life, she plans to use her illusion power to spy on her ruler’s rival and prove her worth. But when her mission fails, she’s turned human as punishment. Now she has until the next full moon to seduce a human prince, break his engagement, and upend his treaty with a rival kingdom without her Kitsune magic or voice, otherwise she’ll become a common fox.

Hikaru is the dutiful oldest son and heir. Whatever he’s asked, he does without complaint. Outwardly, at least. Inwardly, he pines to be a poet, scholar, or anything but a prince. Then he finds a mysterious woman wandering alone beside spirit invested woods, and while he knows he shouldn’t, he brings her home. She cannot speak, but there’s something bewitching about her, drawing him in becoming a dangerous temptation he cannot afford, because peace depends on his marriage to another…

Rin thought it would be simple. Kitsune are experts at deceiving mortals, after all. But the foreign human heart beating in chest threatens to betray her. To save her life, she has to destroy his, and the more time they spend together, the harder it is to deny her growing feelings. Now Rin is caught between two impossible choices: either let fate tear them apart or risk her magic and life for love.

Book One: Kitsune

Hotaru needs a wife. Yuki has no intention of marrying, ever. Neither of them planned on falling in love.

Hotaru was never supposed to become king. But after his elder brother abdicated, he inherited a title, a kingdom at war, and a witch with dubious intentions. Desperate for allies, he travels to a neighboring kingdom in search of a bride. Where it’s rumored, the dying king hopes to arrange his sister’s marriage. Instead, he meets an insufferable princess who talks to forest animals…

Yuki is more comfortable with dirt and grime between her toes than in silk and satin. Her uncanny connection to the forest alienated her from everyone but her brother, who’s dying from the same illness that killed their father. Her brother is afraid she’ll be left alone and insists she marry. For his sake, she agrees, but only if she falls in love…

To win Yuki’s hand, Hotaru will have to capture her heart first. But she’s not only immune to his charms, but tries to sabotage him at every turn. That is, until an unknown assassin attempts to kill Yuki with his gifts and frame Hotaru. Realizing Hotaru wouldn’t kill his would-be bride, she reluctantly agrees to work with him to find the real culprit. However, the more time they spend together, the more her feelings start to change. Yuki swore she’d never fall in love, but if she’s not careful, Hotaru might change her mind.

Book Three: Okami

A wolf desperate for freedom. A headstrong spy running from her past. A love they cannot deny.

Chained by a magical collar to a cruel master, Shin’s life has lost all meaning. He spends his endless days patrolling his master’s domain. Then he intercepts a spy, and the first wolf he’s seen in centuries, and on reckless impulse let her go. He knew he’d be punished, but he’s shocked when he’s ordered to not only catch her, but if he fails, he’ll be locked in darkness and solitude for eternity. A fate worse than death.

While searching for missing priestesses, Akane met Shin, and their brief exchange ignites instincts long buried. For centuries she’s tried to suppress her inner wolf’s hunger and when he let her escape, she resolved to bury it once more. Then he reappears in disguise, tempting her wolf and her heart. But she can’t risk losing control. If she does, she’ll endanger everyone she loves.

Akane tries to resist Shin’s charm, but when kidnappers take her sister, Shin is the only one who knows how to find her. But if they want to find her sister, she needs him, and to face her fear of her power. Shin teaches her how to manage it, while also capturing her heart. While he wrestles with choosing between damnation or a life without Akane.
