--George Will, political analyst and baseball fan

"Dave Kindred loves baseball and Dave Kindred knows baseball. His book Glove Stories is as good as it gets for a baseball fan. If you care about the game, you'll love this book. It's a winner."

“His lips met mine again, this time in a slow, soft caress, conveying everything he had just said in those beautiful words that had reached my very soul. I could have drowned in that kiss. I could have lived there for eternity. It filled me up with everything I needed to survive. He gave me life through his lips and I treasured it." 


Recovering from recent losses, Lucinda finds herself in a Dark place.

She starts to doubt who she has become.

She seeks reassurance that despite the Prophecy and what that has meant for her life, she is still remaining true to herself.

The American Families of Vampires close in on Lucinda and her kindred. There is one who insists Lucinda is his and none other's.

He has not forgotten her and will do anything, anything at all to make her his.

Loyalties are tested and fall short, and Lucinda must find the strength to fight for something she cannot even remember.

But that is not all Lucinda must battle.

The Queen of Darkness appears in amongst the mayhem to exact her plans for Dark's success and the final confrontation of Light and Dark comes to a head.

Without the steadfast support and love of her kindred, Lucinda would not be able to face what is to come, but still she holds something of herself back.

Will she never give herself completely to Michel? And if she does, will it be enough to save her? And enough to save the Light from the Dark once and for all?

"This is such a rich and wonderfully written series. Nicola Claire has created a complex world of vampires, and other supernatural beings, that feel so real you have to wonder if she isn't writing from experience. The characters are flesh and blood, the situations believable and impossible at the same time. Michel and Lucinda are a perfectly complex couple. I love this series and cannot wait to read more." ~ Kyra Dunst (Author of Severed Bonds)

“I watched as he comprehended what it was that he saw on my face, in my eyes. And I watched as a part of him shut down, locked away from me forever. And I hid the fact that my heart was breaking even as I lied to him, even as I broke his. And I swore I would never let him know otherwise, or I would truly be lost, and the war would be over."


Surviving Paris and the Iunctio has left a jagged mark on Lucinda's soul. Now she must stay under their radar and out of their sights.

But that's not all she has to worry about.

Lucinda's life is spiralling out of her control. There are those who want to shackle her under the guise of protection and love. If she is to have a chance at fulfilling the Prophecy, she must break free.

But to do that is to cross a line. One she had never thought she would.

With her personal world becoming more complicated and her powers growing by the day, Lucinda has to take on even more responsibility: Helping out the Master of Wellington City with an increasingly alarming human vigilante problem.

Split between Wellington and Auckland, her kindred and her pull toward the vampire who wears her mark, Lucinda has to dig deep to stay true to the Light within and not give in to the seduction of the Dark.

And then, there are the shape shifters and her best friend Rick.

Things are changing, relationships twisting and Lucinda has to face it all while battling to stay in control.

Control that she feels is slipping through her fingers as surely as blood drips from an open vein.

Forbidden Drink is now my favorite book of the series...There is lots of action fight scenes, tons of sex (and I mean, really hot steamy sex!!), and even moments that will make you cry. This book has it all. It is going on my keeper shelf for sure." ~ Jen (Goodreads #105 Top Reviewer)

I would recommend this author to others." ~ Kyra Dunst (Author ofSevered Bonds)

"I felt hot tears streaming down my cheeks at his words. Spoken so carelessly, but with such shameless intent. He knew how I felt. How I had been feeling. How lost and alone and full of grief my days had been. Avery was not a friend. Not even a trusted acquaintance. But he understood what I was going through. Even if he didn't have a compassionate bone in his entire buffed body, he knew what I had suffered. I didn't have to justify my behaviour to him."


Walking out on her life and hiding in the only place she can think of that the Iunctio - the vampire governing body - and in particular, the Champion, can not find her, Lucinda faces eternity alone and on the run. Heartbroken, bereft and quite desolate she hides in amongst the lowest forms of vampire society.

Doing what she can to keep the innocents safe, while denying herself the support she desperately needs to recover from such personal losses.

A saviour of sorts arrives, but can he be trusted? Avery Rousseau has only ever been interested in himself. But the handsome, arrogant and always so well-put-together vampire does seem to care. At least he offers a distraction from the heartache and loss. Lucinda battles with her inherent mistrust of the one vampire who understands what she is going through.

But should she allow him inside her crumbling walls?

More than just vampires stalk Lucinda though. There is a fairy who claims she is his one true love. Lucinda is called to his Light, she can't help reaching for it, but to do so could have everlasting consequences she may not be prepared to face.

As time runs out - first with the Iunctio, then the Ljósálfar - Lucinda must do what she has to do, to survive, before her heartache breaks her in two.

But memories plague her, her mind starts to play cruel tricks and slowly reality begins to crumble, taking a once strong and confident Nosferatin down as quickly as a predator catches its prey.

And now, there are just so many predators, Lucinda may not stand a chance at all at avoiding being their prey.

Rylee Hale is having a hard time. As a new business owner just starting out on her own, she’s struggling to attract new clients to her paralegal business.
Then she attracts two that are way more than she can handle.

Drace and Lucian are Denarins—a race of the Twelve Peoples where two males bond together in order to join with a single female. An Alpha and a Beta make the perfect pair to attract and care for a woman in every detail of her life.

But what happens when two Alphas get wrongfully bonded? That’s the dilemma Lucian and Drace are in and only a Pure One from Earth can help them. When they see Rylee helping a couple with their divorce in the AMI viewscreen, they decide she’s exactly the female they need to break the bond between them.

Nobody asked Rylee what she thought about being abducted from her life on Earth and caught in the middle of a conflict between two huge, muscular alien males. It's okay thought--she’s a smart girl—she can handle herself. But once she gets a taste of being bonded to two sexy men who want to please her in every way, will she be able to stand by and watch them be…Severed?

"You do realise," he whispered, his hand reaching up to brush my hair from my face. He began twining a strand around one of his fingers. "That you are my most magnificent obsession." Magnificent obsession. I think I liked that. I certainly understood it. He was mine too.


Confronted with yet another curve ball, Lucinda finds herself in Álfheimr at the mercy of the Dökkálfa. And the Fey have unusual rules, rules which even the Dark Fairies like to stretch.

Throwing herself into the political machinations of her hosts, Lucinda must negotiate her release.

But what could the Dökkálfa monarch want that would mean Lucinda's freedom?

Never one to have the patience for politics, Lucinda must adapt to new environments and new challenges, not just from the Fairies, but from all sides now. An old enemy rises to do more harm than good, forcing Lucinda to confront depths of loss she thought long buried.

Struggling with her physical well-being, battling a political world that is now her home, and working against a powerful, devious and underhand enemy, Lucinda must draw on all her Light to succeed.

However she is not alone. She is watched over by the spirit of a dragon.

But everyone knows, the kiss of the dragon is as lethal as its flame.

Kindred Beings What Seventy Three Chimpanzees Taught Me About Life Love And Connection

Description :

Enter a world of tender friendships, staunch loyalties, violent jealousies—and enduring love.

As a child, Sheri Speede knew that she wanted to advocate for animals in any way she could. But it was not until many years after veterinary school, when she was transporting a chimpanzee named Pierre away from a biomedical facility as part of her job as a conservation advocate in Cameroon, that Dr. Speede discovered her true calling. She began to search for land for a forest sanctuary for captive chimpanzees that were held on chains and in small cages at local hotels.

Dr. Speede eventually founded the Sanaga-Yong Chimpanzee Rescue Center, a forested home for orphans of the illegal ape meat trade. One chim- panzee, Dorothy, was rescued by Dr. Speede and her colleagues from a bleak existence imprisoned on a chain and forged a deep friendship with her. Dr. Speede explains how chimpanzees, like humans, are capable of a broad spectrum of emotional behaviors—both hateful and loving. Dr. Speede also candidly reveals her own struggles as a stranger in a foreign culture trying to adjust to rural African village life. And she admits that unlike Dorothy, she was not always kind, gentle, and forgiving.

Dorothy died of old age at the sanctuary, and a photograph of Dorothy's funeral, in which Dr. Speede cradled Dorothy's head while her family of chimpanzees mournfully viewed her body, went viral after being published in National Geographic. The world was surprised at the depth of the chimps' grief at the loss of their friend, but Dr. Speede was not. Through the chimps, she had come to understand the meaning of love, loyalty, and true connection.

While this is a compelling story about the emotional complexity of the chimpanzees she rescued and befriended, it is also Dr. Speede's story. Major events in her personal life, including love affairs, dangerous run-ins with criminals, and the birth of her daughter, unfold as the development of her primate rescue center runs parallel to her own development. Ultimately, Kindred Beings is a story of profound resilience, of both the apes and the woman who loved them.
