L.M. Pruitt has been reading and writing for as long as she can remember. A native of Florida with a love of New Orleans, she has the uncanny ability to find humor in most things and would probably kill a plastic plant. She is the author of the Winged series, the Jude Magdalyn series, the Moon Rising series, Taken: A Frankie Post Novel, and Pearls. Ms. Pruitt is currently at work on INSTRUCTION, a new adult romantica releasing in August.
Taylor Allerton's speakeasy is one of the hottest nightclubs in Manhattan. Young, rich, and beautiful, she can have any man she wants--and usually does.
Namir Adeem just became the youngest partner at one of the most prestigious accounting firms in Manhattan. His determination to bring honor to his family leaves no time for any relationship.
When Taylor discovers just how sheltered Namir is, she takes it upon herself to give him the education he deserves.
Some things can't be taught in school....
In moments of pain, we seek revenge.--Ami Ayalon
My home is compromised.
My children are gone.
My husband is dead
Every inch of my life is in ruins.
The only thing I have left is vengeance.
And no matter what it takes--no matter what tool must be used--no matter the cost--I will have it.
Pearls combines paranormal romance and alternate history for a story anyone can sink their teeth--or fangs--in to. Another kick ass series from one of my favorite authors. If L.M. Pruitt isn't on your watch list, she should be!--Rachel Rawlings
From the incomparable mind of the writer who brought you the critically acclaimed WINGED saga comes a breathtaking, sexy, and dangerous new series
Between the hell of humanity and the heaven of eternal life lies a world of guilty pleasures….
In the aftermath of the conquering of what had once been the United States of America, Marguerite Saint-Laurent was given a choice: lose her New Orleans home to the new vampyre rulers or become the lover of the King’s confidant, Duke Grégoire Barthlémy.
Fifteen years later, Marguerite is a lady in her own right, a close friend of King Bienvenu, and headmistress of the Saint-Laurent School for Exceptional Young Women and Men. Her days are filled with educating future members of the demimonde, her nights with the Duke.
But underneath the glitz and glitter of the New Orleans Court, discord and animosity are brewing—and no one, not even those closest to the throne, are safe.
Political intrigue, civilized violence, sexual scandals… be sure not to forget your smelling salts….

Selene is under attack yet again--this time by the federal government.

Fact--He'll use anything--and anyone--to help him reach that goal.

Who is the traitor?
Everything has led to this.
One final battle.
At the very end–what do you fight for?

Cari Gravier might have learned Selene's big secret, but some things remain constant: the Old Town Cafe, blackberry harvesting, and the shaky relationship with her ex-husband, Mike Sullivan.
But there's more change in the wind, the kind even half blind Old Willis can see. The seeds of the past--betrayal, violence, and heartbreak--are ready for harvest.
And some sleeping dogs just won't stay down....
Nothing ever happens in Selene, Georgia. The biggest events in the past ten years have been a wedding, a funeral and a bar fight. It's slow, sleepy, a little narrow-minded--but for Cari Gravier, it's home.
Now things are starting to happen that nobody's seen before. Strange things in the woods, dead animals--and dead people. Cari's about to discover a whole new side to Selene. And a past that may come back to bite her....
The Fallen have one goal--storm the gates of Heaven and reclaim their heritage.
The Winged have one mission--to prevent it all costs.
From North America to Africa, Europe to South American, the stage is being set for the final battle, the one to end all worlds, and with it comes an ugly truth.
Keep your friends close--and your enemies closer.

All I wanted was a little peace and quiet.
Instead, I've got dead Covenant members and a steady stream of letters from the new guy in town. His beverage of choice? A 2002 Merlot, with a shot or two of powerful virgin blood.
On top of that, I'm breaking in a new police liaison, failing at playing matchmaker, and fighting nausea like it's a full time job.
Did I forget to mention that I've also got enough girls living at the Crossroads to start my own boarding school?
Peace and quiet? Out the window.
--Jude Magdalyn Henries
Jude Magdalyn Henries lives what many would call an unconventional life. Orphaned at birth, raised by nuns, a teenage runaway living on the streets... she now earns a living at odd jobs, including one as a fake tarot card reader. Very little about Jude's life appears normal, by any scale. When she accepts a gig to do a private reading, unconventional takes on an entirely new meaning.
Life as she knows it ends when she's thrust into a world she never knew existed-one filled with magic, vampires, and her beloved New Orleans on the verge of an underground war.
To make matters worse, she's got two men in her life vying for attention, Williams and Theo. Both call to a different part of her, but one scares her just a little bit. Can she step up to the challenges set before her and make the right choices for the "greater"greater good"?
If it's not one thing, it's another.
Felipe, one of New Orleans's most infamous--and crazy--vampires is back in town. And to say he's unhappy is an understatement.
Duprees and Williams have to track down Felipe, fast, before he claims any more victims. If that means making a deal with the Devil--otherwise known as St. Germaine--and using an untrained dhampir, so be it.
If that wasn't enough, I've also got rebellious teenagers, feuding couples, and a suddenly full social calendar.
The more things change....
In the last year, Joanne Watson has died, fallen in love, fought demons and earned her Wings.
None of that compares to what's coming next....
Life as a member of the Winged isn't perfect--or easy. There's always some new camp drama. There's always a demon ready for a fight. There's always death.
And now there's the Resistance.
Joanne must choose again, this time between her fellow Winged and their burning desire for change or the archangels and the eternal vow she made.
Even in the afterlife, one truth remains--everything ends.
Cheating spouse? Stolen jewelry? Missing person?
Call Frances--Frankie--Post. A private detective with a trick of two up her sleeve and a few skeletons of her own.
What starts out as a simple missing person's case dumps Frankie and her lover Jack right in the crosshairs of a dangerous human trafficking organization. With lives on the line, bad blood and old wounds finally see the light of day. And Frankie and Jack are forced to realize: The past always catches up with you.
I fell from the Talmadge Bridge the week before I turned thirty.
I was given a choice: Go to Heaven. Go back to my life in Savannah. Or spend eternity fighting evil under the direction of the archangels.
I chose the demons--and the angels.
I chose the Winged.
