Love the supernatural? Yes? Then you’ll absolutely adore Dzintra Sullivan’s novels. We first fell in love with Dzintra’s bestselling series Halfway House series which centres around a house for troubled paranormals…
Arkadia (Halfway House series, book 1)
I am Arkadia Castner. I am beautiful. I am popular. I am also the most messed-up witch you will ever meet. I can’t make water boil, or make the wind blow; I can’t even light a match without the aid of a flint. My 18th birthday is in six months, and if I don’t pass the Paranormal Safety Exams (PSEs) by then, I will be banished to the Isle of Shadows for eternity, never to be seen again – it will be as though I never existed.
I found myself at the halfway house under the supervision and guidance of Den Mother and telepathic empath, Eloise Mayflower. The halfway house is the last chance for troubled paranormal teens like me to pass our PSEs and avoid banishment. Eloise knows everything I think and feel, and is supposed to be helping me, but I still can’t do basic spells a six-year-old can do. I hate it here, but I have no choice. This is my last chance.
I had all but given up hope, when in walks Bohdan Drak. Tall, dark, and so damn sexy it hurts to look at him – even his muscles had muscles. He is a dragon shifter and wears the mark of having passed his PSEs. When our souls meet, we realize we have found our soul mates and perfect matches. My dying hope has found life again, and I finally have a reason to look forward to a future.
I thought everything would be fine, but darkness and despair creep into my future. I have been framed for a murder, and everyone believes I am guilty. The paranormal council now watches my every move. Can I trust Bohdan and true love? I fear my destiny is to be banished forever …
A self-described “benevolent Queen ruling my imaginary world” pretty much sums up exactly what you can expect to find in a Delwyn Jenkins novel! We recommend The Watchtower Chronicles.
Called by Fire (The Watchtower Chronicles, book 1)

But when a sister-witch is murdered and another kidnapped, Kamryn discovers a dark magic so terrifying it threatens the safety of both her worlds. Driven by the need to help in the investigation, Kamryn must deal with the complications of working with the mysterious Watchtower Knights.
After two hundred years in exile, the Knights have been invited back to protect the Witches at the Collegium. They can’t afford any mistakes, and Alex knows his attraction for the fire witch has trouble written all over it. With one eye on the investigation and the other on Kamryn, Alex must balance his obligation to duty with the needs of his heart.

Protecting Her Heart
Plissa Waltric has made mistakes: being a bitch to the Prince of Rica was probably not the best career move. But she’s really tried to make the best of her punishment for almost killing Kernan Radaton – turning things around at the Rican Balcite Mining Company, training a replacement, and waiting for the King of Angonia to forgive her and let her return home.
Thanks to her role in protecting the RBMC, it looks like Plissa might finally be free. But with the end of her punishment in sight, the very last thing Plissa needs is a secret from her past to make an appearance. Unfortunately, Paolo has always done just as he pleases, and it pleases him to rekindle his relationship with Plissa. But the secretive organisation of capaz de pensa is outlawed now, and Plissa’s past involvement could risk her whole future.
With Paolo back in her life—and her bed—it soon becomes clear that her future is not the only thing she’s risking. Plissa has always valued her head above her heart, her ambition over her relationships. Now she needs to figure out what is really important, and what she is willing to sacrifice to get it.
