I’m coming for Underbelly Circus… to burn it to the ground.
My whole life, I’ve wished for family but found foes instead. All this changed in a matter of days when I met the guys from Haret – my dragon, shifter, mage, fae, merman, and vampire.
Each man has his own unique magic, and as a Qilin, I have the power to channel it.
There’s one huge problem, though.
I got my piece of dragon, but if the Ringmaster finds out, he’ll use Jack to get to us. With Underbelly controlling Jack, we don’t know who trust.
It’s time to fight the Ringmaster for everything he has.
The guys’ magic is mine for the taking, as long as I can wrap my head around the way Qilin do harems. With these gorgeous guys, that shouldn’t be hard.
I’m Carlyle Licorne, and I’m here to take back what’s mine.

The Ringmaster is coming… to steal me away.
For years, my odd ability to manipulate others kept me one step ahead of the Underbelly Circus – a place nobody like me lives through.
Everything goes to hell when a gorgeous stranger dies right in front of me, resurrects himself as a dragon, and begs me to follow him straight into the Underbelly beast.
He claims I’m the lost Qilin Queen – a magical freaking unicorn.
I can smell the truth in his words, and he’s desperate. How can I help him, if he works for my greatest enemy?
The answer comes barreling into my world when his brothers-in-arms find me, too – lion shifter, mage, fae, merman, and vampire.
They’re all from a magical world beyond mine, and they need me to help them find the way home.
Only a pure Qilin can find the Path, and these six men think I’m the last one alive.
I’m Carlyle Licorne, and I’m no innocent unicorn.

“So… Jack, is it, this time?” the Ringmaster asked, digging his thick fingers into my temples as I held myself still and silent. My arms were tense and pale as I fisted my hands at my sides.
He didn’t need to touch people to read their thoughts. The asshole just enjoyed how concrete pain enhanced the nausea that came with him digging through my memories.
“Interesting choice of names for this cycle. Jack be nimble, Jack be quick. Something about a candlestick, I think. Will you get burned, Jack, when you jump? You do love to jump.”
I clenched my teeth against the growing ache in my skull, but I didn’t flinch. I never flinched, and this was why the Ringmaster hated me the most. He respected me for it, too, though respect got you nowhere in the Underbelly Circus.
The Ringmaster removed his grip from my face and slowly pulled back his invisible mental probes. Slouching back in the ridiculous medieval throne we carried from city to city, the Ringmaster eyed me, pinning my blue eyes with his black ones. He ran his palms down the slick silk of his tie, straightening it. “I have another job for you. This one is different. I need her.”
The psychotic fervor in the man’s eyes wasn’t helping a damn bit with my nausea.
“What’s in it for me?” I said after managing to catch enough breath to speak evenly. My last big job had earned me a new mattress. I scrubbed at my coarse brown hair, standing it up even more than usual in my efforts to rub away his touch. “Unless you’re ready to set me free,” I cracked, not bothering to hide the bitter edge of my tone.
I’d been in the Circus long enough to forget where I was before. I’d picked a new name so many times I couldn’t even remember my first one. None of my new identities had made a difference, though. The Ringmaster’s tricks and powers were legendary: I’d never escape the Underbelly Circus, and neither would any of the recruits I’d ever been sent to retrieve.
With my unique powers, I couldn’t even escape the Ringmaster in death. I’d simply start another cycle, right where the last one had ended.
Immortality wasn’t that cool if it was indentured.
The Ringmaster leaned forward and smiled at me, cruel and slow. “If you find her and bring her back unharmed, you can have the thing you’ll want most.”
“And what is that?” I asked, lifting an eyebrow at his use of future tense. I scratched at my two-day stubble, wishing we were done with this meeting already. Out of habit, I twisted the gold ring on my thumb, its weight and purity giving me a certain comfort that a mattress never could. “I’m resigned to this life.”
I totally fucking wasn’t, but it was all part of the act.
“Not your fate.” The Ringmaster grinned wider, showing his double row of perfect white teeth. “The girl’s.”

What is on your nightstand?
Would you believe I don’t own a nightstand? LOL. I sleep like a rock, so I never get up in the middle of the night. I read mostly on my phone, and I always slip it under my pillow when I’m ready for sleep. Guess I’m either easy or crazy. 😉
What author would you totally fan?
Oh, so many! I’d love to meet some of the big YA fantasy authors like Sarah J Maas and Leigh Bardugo. Plus the Reverse Harem leaders like Tate James and Auryn Hadley.
What makes you cringe?
Violence against children and animals. I seriously can’t deal with books that have much of that, no matter how much I love the story or the characters.
Do you obsessively plot out each point or just go with the flow?
I’ve tried both, and I fall somewhere in the middle. I plot a long series arc first, then make up the beginning and end for each book, plus a couple of ideas for the middle. I wing it from there! I’ve found that if I plot too much I deviate and end up wasting time.
Is there a word you love to use?
F**k! LOL. Really, I do love that word. It rolls off the tongue so well, and I’m prohibited from saying it in my “day job” so that makes it all the more fun to say. 😉
