This is Lex’s signature series, telling the stories of mated couples who are connected to or related to three best friends who aren’t above meddling to make the matings happen. This series combines vampires, dragon shifters, werewolves, the fae and the Magia (the magical race) together in a world where such creatures live side by side with humans, each basically their own race. They are stories of love, family and acceptance of the differences between us.

Shifting Winds, Book 1 – M/F – Vampire Elysia Granville and her brothers own a cemetery in the Darkworld. When Elysia goes to the Undertaker’s Ball on Halloween in search of a one night stand, she finds more than she bargained for. Elysia isn’t looking for a mate or any kind of relationship. When she makes the mistake of choosing black dragon Declan Antaeus to relieve her sexual tension, she ends up finding fulfillment on more levels than she ever dreamed of.

Hot Water, Book 2 – M/F –  Black dragon Eden Antaeus is a bad girl. Or so her brother Sean would have her believe.

What Eden finds is Colin Granville, her brother Declan’s new brother in law. Desire burns hot between them despite the lack of surnames and after one night together, they both want more. Getting past the discovery that their siblings are married, Colin teaches Eden that she’s not the Queen of Kink and Eden finds a love, and a life, she never expected to have.

Fire Season, Book 3 – M/M – Black dragon Holden Antaeus isn’t looking for a mate. His life is filled with family, work, and dating.

Garret Renquist is a green dragon, intelligent, witty, bi-sexual, and hot for Holden.

What follows is a journey through stereotypes and ingrained beliefs as Holden struggles with the fact that his destined mate is a man.

Emily falls for the strong, sexy black dragon and hides her need of him behind an icy facade. Vahid longs for Emily to need him but can’t bring himself to mate with such a cold woman.
