|Sweeter Than Wine
An abused woman has the power to unite werefolk, fey and vampire against an evil that would see them all dead - if she can learn to love again.
Christy lies near death after a brutal beating by her estranged husband. Her preternatural friends reach a desperate conclusion: The only way to save her is to turn her. Sebastian steps forward to take on the burden of being her Maker.
For him it's no burden at all. She draws him as no other woman has for centuries. With the help of a werecougar friend, Sebastian teaches Christy about her new life and abilities, making certain she is as strong as he can make her. Only then can she face her abusive ex-husband and put her old life behind her. But Christy's ex-husband is involved in something more dangerous than any of them had guessed.
Vampire, were, and even a fey knight must work together to put an end to the threatening evil. To overcome her past, help keep the darkness at bay, and fight for a new life with Sebastian, Christy must draw on all of her new-found strength.
Will it be enough?

5 Red Tattoos from Erotic Escapades! Megan said: "...unforgettable...Heat flares easily and often throughout Sweeter Than Wine and whether it is Sebastian and Christy alone or if Matt has joined them, the emotionally rich love scenes will touch your heart and libido. With a fantastic cast of secondary characters youâ€™ll just love and plenty of potential antagonists out there I will be waiting eagerly on the edge of my seat for the next installment of the Paranormal Tales series. Hereâ€™s hoping Matt finds a woman of his own to make him purr in human form."
Julia Clark of ParanormalRomance.org (PNR) said: "Hot-blooded vamps, weres, and fey in a fast-paced tale...The huge success of paranormal romance has flooded the market with all kinds of creatures, and new takes on old legendsâ€”for better or for worse. While Ms. D'Arc's characters follow fairly standard paranormal canon, she avoids the pitfalls of clichÃ© to give us a series peopled with strong folk who come from vastly differing backgrounds, with various strengths, shortcomings, and quirks."
