Wes Rockville, a disgraced law-enforcement agent, gets one last chance to prove himself and save his career when he’s reassigned to a 232-year-old secret government organization. The Witches Protection Program. His first assignment: uncover a billion-dollar cosmetics company’s diabolical plan to use witchcraft for global domination, while protecting its heiress Morgan Pendragon from her aunt’s evil deeds. Reluctantly paired with veteran witch protector, Alastair Verne, Wes must learn to believe in witches…and believe in himself. Filled with adventure and suspense, Michael Okon creates a rousing, tongue-in-cheek alternate reality where witches cast spells and wreak havoc in modern-day New York City.
“They say that right before you die your whole life flashes before your eyes. What a load of crap! The second I felt the “click” beneath my boot all I saw was his face. I had left him standing mere feet behind me, and if I moved a millimeter more, I would kill us both. If you asked me what you see before you die, I’d be the first to tell you that it’s not the life you’ve lived that replays in your mind’s eye, but the one you haven’t.”
For five long years Jaylee Penn Sayer has had recurring dreams of the day a landmine in Kuwait almost took her life, and of the man who saved her in a way she would never be able to accurately explain. For a half decade she dreamed of the way he and their teammates had disappeared into thin air, and why the remaining witnesses to the event seem to have no recollection of it at all.
One tragic night, as Jaylee watched her best friend’s life slipping away, the man who saved her, Marcus Cain, returns the way he left…suddenly, inexplicably, and carrying the pieces to Jaylee’s heart. Immediately Jaylee’s reality is turned upside down by a series of nightmarish attempts on her life, and Marcus is forced to reveal who, and what, he really is, the truth about her destiny, and why she can never have the thing she wants most. Him.
As an ancient prophecy unfolds, worlds begin colliding around her, and Jaylee starts to discover gifts she never knew she had, gifts that mark her as an enemy to a dangerous foe, that free her from a curse, and that force her to send Marcus away. Possibly forever.

War is a jealous lover who is reluctant to release me
from her embrace.
Pacorus, now retired from the politics of Parthia, embarks on a journey to request the high king find a place in the empire for his Egyptian protégé, who has been offered the governorship of Roman-controlled Egypt, as well as to discover the whereabouts of his former squire.
But Queen Gallia’s assassins have unwittingly set in motion a sequence of events that will plunge the empire into peril, as well as endangering the King of Dura himself. When an invading horde of barbarians sweeps into Parthia from the north and crushes everything in its path, Pacorus is once again forced to unsheathe his sword.
But old allies cannot be relied upon and Pacorus is not the great warlord of old. With an untrustworthy high king and a cunning adversary to face, he is soon faced with his greatest challenge: saving the Parthian Empire itself.
