Roses are Red, Violence is Blue

(A book in the Holiday Remixes series)
A novel by

Xyran was last in line to take over the family business. The line just got a whole lot shorter.

When a human from a rival province kills his father and older brother, mild-mannered Xyran "Blue" Rossi finds himself next in line for control of Ravenna. A fae mafia kingpin. But Blood Law dictates that before he can succeed the throne, he must take a wife.

An unexpected peace offering comes in the form of Cirella—sister of the human who killed his brother and father. Offered up by her human family to atone for her brother's crime, Cirella checks all the fae mafia wife boxes: pretty, smart, good with a blade...

Xyran's mother is ready to bury the hatchet. A Valentine's Day wedding will be the perfect way to ease relations between the two families.

Unfortunately, neither Cirella or Xyran have any intention of playing nice.

This is a steamy, lighthearted, standalone Valentine's Day romance you can read in an hour or less. In it, you'll find the following tropes:

HEA ending
morally grey beta hero
forbidden love
men with wings
arranged marriage
mafia family

About the Series

Small town apocalypses? Dystopian billionaires? Fae mafia bosses? How about hockey playing shifters? A Greek god desperately in need of a nanny?

You may ask, "Why?" This series of steamy holiday instaloves asks, "Why not?" Why not a mishmash of genres? Why not funny, off-the-wall romance with hot spice and big heart? Why not a sexy hockey shifter rom-com starring the Easter bunny?

Inside these 12 books, you'll find 12 short standalone instaloves, each set during a different holiday in every month of the year.

"Even August?" I hear you asking.

Yes, friend. Even August.

"But there isn't even a holiday in Aug—"

Don't worry about it. It's gonna be fine. I have, like, eight months to figure that out. Just start at December, and we'll all be fine. Okay?
