Hope dangles by a silken thread.

Araneae Nation, Book 1

When the head of the Araneidae clan is found poisoned in her nest, her eldest daughter, Lourdes, becomes their clan's new maven. If her clan is to survive, she has but one choice: she must marry before her nest is seized. All she needs is a warrior fierce enough to protect her city and safeguard her clansmen. Such a male is Rhys the Cold.

Born the youngest son of an impoverished maven, the only things Rhys has to his name are his sword and his mercenary reputation. His clan is starving, but their fondness for the flesh of fellow Araneaeans makes them unwelcome dinner guests. Torn between loyalty to his clan and fascination with his future bride, Rhys's first taste of Lourdes threatens to melt the cold encasing his heart.

Amid the chaos of battle, Lourdes's sister disappears and is feared captured. Lourdes and Rhys pursue their enemies into the southlands, where they discover an odd plague ravaging southern clans as it travels north, to Erania. Determined to survive, Lourdes will discover whether she's worth her silk or if she's spun the thread by which her clan will hang.

Warning: This book contains one mercenary hero with a biting fetish, one determined heroine who gets nibbled, and an answer to the age-old question, "What does dragon taste like?" Matricide and sibling rivalry are available upon request. The house special is revenge, best served cold.

Hailey is a small town girl at heart. She's lived most of her life surrounded by sprawling cotton fields and rolling pastures. Her desire to explore the world without leaving the comfort of home fueled her love of reading. Whenever life in the Deep South strikes her as too ordinary, she can be found with her nose stuck in a book—or glued to her Kindle's screen—as she explores other worlds and cavorts with mythical creatures. She never imagined she would one day write her own adventures. Now she can't imagine doing anything else.

“A warning would have sufficed.” Stella: Lol, that scene was one of my favourites as well, though I also love this line that took place after the above scene between Vaughn and Lourdes: “Is he all right?” “I don’t know.” He ripped his pant leg open and inspected his thigh.
