CAPTURED: A Fallen Siren Prequel (Science Fiction & Fantasy)
1 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:37PM
Description: Join FBI Agents Emma Monroe and Zack Armstrong. She’s a Siren. He’s a Werewolf. Their mission is redemption. Emma Monroe is a Fallen Siren, cursed by the gods and banished to Earth for her failure to prevent the kidnapping of Persephone. She’s had many names and many lives, but only one mission: redemption. Now she works for the FBI and is on temporary assignment in Charleston. Solving this next missing persons case could be the key to ending her ancient curse—unless the temptation that’s her new partner gets in the way. Zack Armstrong is a Werewolf. Tall, dark, and dangerous, he currently works for one of the bureau’s elite Child Abduction Rapid Deployment teams. In many respects the man is every bit as mysterious as his secret and perilous past. But there are two things he’s certain about, that he’s going to get his man and his woman. When Zack finds himself suddenly shy a partner and a third child goes missing in Charleston, Emma goes from consultant to CARD team member in the space of a few hours. The abductions of the first two boys ended in murder, an outcome that neither Zack nor Emma can abide. As they race against time to track down the kidnapper and rescue the latest victim, they find themselves fighting something just as treacherous—a growing attraction that can’t be ignored or denied.

“Are you happy, Zack?” I ask. A dangerous question. One I have no right to ask. I’m standing, my hand on the passenger door to the Suburban. He’s on the driver’s side, key in the lock. “I’m not sure I ever will be. Something’s missing. I don’t even know what it is, but I know I want it back in the worst possible way.”
S.J. Harper, Reckoning

“You shouldn’t write off the possibility of a good romp with a guy just because he goes furry a few days every month.”
S.J. Harper, Cursed

“You’ve seen one dark, rugged werewolf, you’ve seen them all. That’s what I told myself the first time I laid eyes on Zack Armstrong. I was wrong. Dead wrong. And now that presumption has come back to bite me in the ass.”
S.J. Harper, Cursed
