The Glass Gargoyle paperback version

Archeologist Taryn St. Giles has spent her life mining the ruins of the elves who vanished from the Four Kingdoms a thousand years ago. But when her patrons begin disappearing too-and then turning up dead-she finds herself unemployed, restless, and desperate. So she goes looking for other missing things: as a bounty hunter. Tracking her first fugitive-the distractingly handsome and strangely charming Alric-she unearths a dangerous underworld of warring crime lords, demonic squirrels, and a long-lost elven artifact capable of unleashing a hell on earth. Chased, robbed, kidnapped, and distressingly low on rent money, Taryn just wants one quiet beer and to catch her fugitive. But there's more to Alric than his wicked grin-is he a wanted man or the city's only hope? With menacing mages in pursuit and her three alcoholic faery sidekicks always in her hair, Taryn's curiosity might finally solve the mystery of the elves... or be the death of her and destroy her world.

Warrior Wench paperback

"Vaslisha Tor Dain is a mercenary starship captain with a few simple rules: A good ship is better than a great man, in case of confusion always err on the side of blowing someone's head off, and never fall for a telepath or a member of her crew.

All of those are about to bite her in the behind.

Vas’s life takes a turn for the worse when she comes back to her crew after what should have been a two week pleasure trip to find out she’s actually been gone a month and has no memory of missing time. Her beloved ship, The Victorious Dead, has been sold for scrap and its pieces scattered throughout the galaxy. In addition, there are unmarked ships blowing apart entire planets and the Commonwealth government can’t, or won’t, stop them.

And that’s just her first day back.

Vas has to fight her crew, the Commonwealth, and a mysterious cadre of warrior monks to get her ship back and save a universe that may not want to be saved."

The Girl with the Iron Wing paperback

"Thousands of years ago, the fey races crossed the Veil into the human world to save themselves.

Hundreds of years ago, the fey saved humanity from being wiped out by the Black Death.

Now something is coming after the fey--from Earth and from beyond the Veil.

As a detective with the LAPD, Aisling Danaan has seen it all, and as an elf from a powerful, guarded clan, she sees more than most. But no one has ever seen a fairy explode from iron poisoning.

The winged fey who died was one of various fey races that outnumber humans in a world where the Black Death nearly wiped out humanity. Over time, the species mingled, and magic and technology developed equal standing. But the strange and violent murder threatens to unbalance the peace that the fey High Council brought through the Veil.

Called out by name by the killer, Aisling must unravel a tangle of secrets reaching deeper and wider than any case she's ever worked. And one of the most vexing mysteries is super spook Reece Larkin. With badges from too many questionable agencies, the sexy, troublesome spy seems to know more than he's willing to share--and what he won't tell could kill them. They'll have to work together to hunt down the source of the poisoning before the entire fey population on Earth is destroyed by the Iron Death."
