Once upon a time, there was a man called Indri. He was the son of the frog king and had the features to prove it. Because he was feared for his appearance, his unloved heart hardened and turned black as a frog’s.
Once upon a time, there was a lady called Tilula. She was the daughter of a merchant and older sister to his favorite son. She was rarely ever appreciated by her family, but this never stopped her from loving those who needed to be loved.
Through fate and by the merchant’s own doing, Indri and Tilula are thrown together. It is in the forest that he first sets eyes on her beauty. It is in his villa that she first glimpses his wounded soul.
Can a heart of gold heal one that’s tainted black?

Moët Arkady is a Lecora –cursed by an ancient swamp magic so that any man she kisses could end up not only possessing HER but a lifetime of fabulously good luck to boot. Not exactly helpful when returning home after years of banishment BAM! Moët’s plane crashes right into the swamp that created the curse in the first place. So when Moët must play good Samaritan to a drowning passenger, what was that? A kiss? Better not be, because he’s Moses Gentry, the indomitable Gentry in The Consortium v. Gentry Refinery, the biggest most dangerous legal war these southern Parishes have ever seen, the one that will decide whether the swamp itself lives or dies.
And she’s the new Court Monitor who has to decide the whole blasted thing.
If Moët rules for the Consortium, Moses Gentry will lose everything –like he’s gonna let that happen. But if she rules for Moses, the Consortium’s rich and powerful members could be headed to prison –and they sure don’t intend on going. Since Moët’s predecessor resolved the dilemma by ending up alligator bait, and her former high school sweetheart is now the Consortium’s lead attorney and pretty great at stealing kisses, Moët could sure use some good luck herself.
And that wily old swamp still has its magic not to mention some truly surprising plans for the intrepid little Lecora –and whoever wins (and whoever loses!) The Consortium v. Gentry Refinery.
Because when they least expect it, a bit of swamp magic could just seal this deal… with a kiss!

An insatiable curiosity drives her to learn more about these monsters, and so she travels on a journey that will redefine who she is and what she knows.

On her first day in town, she has an accident with an eccentric casino owner. Enthralled by his good looks, she falls into his bed for a steamy one night stand.
But Hunt Blackwater is more than a mysterious, gorgeous casino owner. Rumors of a Native American curse and a string of inexplicable deaths follow in his wake. But the most terrifying is his ability to reach right into Charisma’s soul and make her want the things she’s convinced herself she can do without.
Unwilling to get in over her head, Charisma cuts her trip short and returns home, but trouble seems to follow her. With remembered whispers of curses in her ears, and the lingering smell of death in her nose, she wonders if she is his next victim. Things go from puzzling to harrowing as Charisma comes face to face with the greatest betrayal she could ever imagine.
