The Tales from Hawk’s Folly Farm
For the first time, these three novellas are collected into one volume: Iron Shoes; Snow Comes to Hawk’s Folly; and Snowfall.
Imogen Hawkes is running out of time. She must come up with enough money to prevent the bank from foreclosing on her farm. All her hopes are pinned on her horse winning the Special Stakes.
But things keep going wrong, and it’s soon clear someone is determined to stop her. As race day draws closer, Imogen finds unexpected sources of help…including the new stallion she’s purchased from Boston, who’s not at all what he seems.
Despite a life spent avoiding it, Imogen learns that magic may be her best ally….
Snow Comes to Hawk’s Folly:
Imogen has the life she’s always wanted. Her farm is thriving, as is her family. But a guest comes to the farm, bringing trouble in his wake.
When Imogen’s son disappears, how far will she go to get him back? Is it magic? Or something more mundane? In her family, the mundane is rarely to blame…
Lourdes Medina has left everything she knows. Following a vision in a dream, she’s gone north to Saratoga Springs to buy back the mare her brother sold out from under her. But the horse’s new owner, Finn, makes her an interesting offer in return for the horse. Against her better judgment, Lourdes becomes entangled in his family’s problems…and it seems she’s unwittingly gained an enemy, a woman who will go to any length to get the husband she wants.
But Finn is a mystery. He seems to have abilities that she’s never seen before, including the ability to overhear her speaking to horses. It’s Lourdes’ one small magic–she can speak directly to a horse, mind to mind, and they obey her word. When she learns the truth about Finn, that’s when things truly become complicated. What exactly is a puca?

A new novella from the world of the Golden City: The Seer’s Choice
Genoveva Jardim’s father was a monster—a defrocked priest who used his healer’s gift to murder instead. Determined to make amends for the deaths her father brought to the Golden City, she turned her back on her life among the aristocracy. She’s chosen to work for the Special Police, learning how to use the healer’s gift she’d never even known she had. She wants to save lives instead of killing like her father.
Rafael Pinheiro has kept an eye on Miss Jardim for some time now. The very first time he met her, his seer’s gift told him he would someday marry her. What he can’t figure out is why he would choose her. She’s young and an aristocrat—hardly a match for a mere police captain raised in an orphanage. They don’t seem to have anything in common.
But when Miss Jardim’s life is threatened, everything changes…

The Dragon’s Child Cycle
These two volumes chronicle the history of the Zheng family, beginning with the initial story “The Dragon’s Child” where we see the first meeting of Kseniya Ilyevna and Yun-qi, the bodyguard of the wizard who holds her and her niece prisoner at his mountain retreat. The first volume includes “The Dragon’s Child” and “Early Winter, Near Jenli Village”. The second volume continues with “The Legacy of Dragons”, “The Dragon’s Pearl”, and “The Waiting Bride”.
Also a part of this grouping of stories we have “The Eretik”, published separately.
In a story that falls (chronologically) between the second and last tales in The Dragon’s Pearl, we meet Kseniya’s youngest sister Ivanka, who has fallen into trouble more than once before.
