SENTINEL'S DAGGER (D'VAIRE, BOOK 2)
Rumor has it that sentinels are as dangerous as they are mysterious. Unsatisfied with the limited knowledge they possess, the Dragon Court of D’Vaire’s two necromancers make the courageous decision to summon their soul-bound assassins. First to arrive is Gavrael. Transported from the cell that served as his home for over ninety years, he goes from a world of only gray to one vibrant with color. Unused to companionship, Gavrael finds that building relationships with his new family is difficult. Though they are warm, caring, and friendly, he struggles to translate the burgeoning thoughts in his mind into words, leaving him struggling to adapt and trapped in solitude.
Boredom has Gedeon wondering if there is any value in being a sentinel, but that changes the moment he is summoned to D’Vaire. Pleased with the opportunity he’s been given, Gedeon is determined to immerse himself in his new life. He tackles relating to everyone around him with all the fortitude galvanized into his soul at his resurrection. However, regardless of his resolve, he is baffled and frustrated when he meets Gavrael. His impatience only grows once he realizes the man is his mate.
Gavrael and Gedeon were never taught about matebonds. Ripped from isolation, they quickly learn that their old lives have ill-prepared them to handle the complexities of their new connection. Conflicting personalities cause the pair to have difficulty seeing eye to eye and agreeing on a plan for their future. Grappling with the concept of love, their journey forward is halted by the return of an old foe intent on settling a score against the D’Vaires. To find happiness together, the sentinels must accept that it will take more than their trusty daggers to finally lay the past to rest and claim their reward—eternal devotion.

RISE OF THE LICH SENTINEL (D'VAIRE, BOOK 5)
Swamped with guilt over nearly every decision he’s made in his life, Arch Lich Chander Daray spends his time escaping into books and focusing his energy on leading the Order of Necromancia. The last thing on his mind is finding his other half. In pursuit of freedom for the sentinels, Gavrael and Gedeon D’Vaire ask him for help, and Chander is happy to oblige. When their leader is summoned to begin the process of bringing the sentinels into the Council of Sorcery and Shifters, Chander is horrified to discover they are mates.
From the moment of Lich Sentinel Alaric’s resurrection, he has been spellbound to care for the sentinels. Hunger burns and exhaustion runs deep, but Alaric is forced to put his sentinels first, involuntarily setting his own needs aside.

Determined to sway Chander, Alaric refuses to be pushed aside, though loving a man who fears his own inadequacies comes with a price. The odds are heavily stacked against the two, yet neither man appears capable of simply walking away. But is that enough to save them from heartbreak?
FALL OF THE ARCH LICH (D'VAIRE, BOOK 6)

They are led by Arch Lich Chander Daray, the one person Alaric wishes to avoid at all costs. Despite Chander’s decision to end their matebond, Alaric cannot stomach the idea of signing their separation papers.
Arch Lich Chander Daray has never been more miserable. His mate is gone, and he believes he’s been betrayed in the worst way. Chander thinks he’s at rock bottom, but there is more pain to come. The elder council demands his title be revoked, and when they offer a petition signed by thousands of necromancers, Chander feels he has no choice but to resign.
With nothing but time on his hands, Chander pushes his magic to its limits. Alaric is not idle either and is determined to get the sentinels out of their prison. Though things between them are over, they soon find themselves face-to-face. There is love in Chander’s heart, but Alaric must be willing to forgive him the mistakes he’s made. Chander is ready, but for Alaric, it will require a leap of faith to trust Chander again. Will they decide to start fresh or simply walk away?
VENGEANCE FROM THE DARK (D'VAIRE, BOOK 3)
A thousand years. That’s how long Chieftain Lorcan of the Acwellan has waited to have his vengeance. Now that his mate has distanced himself from the sanctity of the magic stealing stones the Cwylld elves are notorious for, Lorcan can finally end his miserable life. It is no more than he deserves after abandoning Lorcan and igniting a war between their people, leaving the demonic elven of the Acwellan tribe decimated.
Things are not always as they seem. Lorcan’s other half did not vanish of his own accord. Blinded and left to sit in the dirt while his tribesmen and women heap insults upon his head and occasionally use their fists to show their dislike, he has no memory of his past nor of Lorcan. After centuries of neglect, he is rescued by the kind hearts of D’Vaire and is cautiously learning to live again.
When Lorcan’s hunt leads him to a sanctuary, he is shocked but remains undeterred. With a score to settle, he will allow nothing to get in his way—not even his own heart. But Lorcan’s other half is equally stubborn, and his mind is set on reconciliation. Fate has not recklessly paired these two, though she does work in mysterious ways. The question remains: when all is said and done, which of their plans will be left in the dark?
DISREGARDING FATE (D'VAIRE, BOOK 8)

So, he’s delighted when he arrives at his first elven gathering and meets his other half. Cadlyr can leave the Cwylld and enjoy a prosperous life. Observing the tradition of their people, they agree to be mated the following day. Only, instead of promising his life to Evlithar of the Valzadari, Cadlyr is told the young elf has died by his own hand. Devastated, Cadlyr promises not to forget him and rages internally that Evlithar failed to come to him with his troubles. If he had Evlithar would still be alive and Cadlyr could’ve escaped.
Two thousand years later, Cadlyr’s existence has changed. Now the last of the Cwylld he is determined to recreate the sullied name into something noble. He resides within a special sanctuary at the Draconis Court of D’Vaire and has never been happier. It takes time, but he is eventually convinced to return to the annual gathering of elves.

THE FIRST SENTINEL (D'VAIRE, BOOK 7)

RESURRECTION OF THE FALLEN (D'VAIRE, BOOK 4)
Reverent Knight Drystan Kempe has no use for the rumors that have swirled around him over the past two centuries. He knows he is not the former emperor of the dragons—the only thing they share is a common name. After all, Drystan the emperor had a love that has become legendary since his death, and Drystan the fallen knight is very much alone. He’s waited over six hundred years for the other half of his soul and has grown impatient. When Drystan finally finds him, he is unamused by the discovery that he bears the name of the former emperor’s mate, but he tries to remain open-minded.
Reverent Knight Conley Gylde is confident that whoever he was prior to his recent resurrection has no bearing on this new beginning. He first focuses on demolishing every training record the fallen knights have with his unmatched speed, then tackles his job with the same level of intensity. Although he is unsure what to make of his title or his mate, he is not a man easily intimidated, and he puts his best foot forward.
When Drystan and Conley finally become blood-bonded, their mating brings them a great deal more than they bargained for. Originally it was their future awaiting them, but unlike their brethren, they are forced to contend with their pasts. Faced with a history of deceit and betrayal from those closest to them, they must find strength in themselves and trust in Fate; only then will they learn what truly matters: the awe-inspiring love between them that has transcended everything…even death.
