Cali Mann

Cali Mann is the USA Today bestselling author of the Thornbriar Academy series. She writes paranormal romance, the sexy kind with why choose, hunky shifters, sexy vampires, and women who stand up for themselves. She learned romance by reading through her mother’s entire Gothic romance collection in her teens, so she and dark romance go way back. When she’s not writing, she spends her time streaming shows, playing video games, and pestering her two tuxedo cats.

Margo Bond Collins

USA Today, Wall Street Journal, and New York Times bestselling author Margo Bond Collins is a former college English professor who, tired of explaining the difference between “hanged” and “hung,” turned to writing romance novels instead. She now writes urban fantasy, paranormal romance, and science fiction romance. Sometimes her heroines kiss aliens, sometimes they kill monsters. But they always aim for the heart.

Shadowheart Media 

Shadowheart Media publishes paranormal romance, urban fantasy, and science fiction romance.

Are you a fan of sexy fantasy romance, hot paranormal men, spicy reverse harems, and a witchy pirate heroine?

Even more, are you looking for a guaranteed happily ever after?

If you’ve answered yes to these questions, then you don’t want to miss out on the steamy reverse harem paranormal historical romance series The Mystic Marauder.

About The Mystic Marauder Series

I was born on the island of Tortuga. My mother died and one of her brothel customers taught me to be a thief. I stole and stole and stole until I sneaked my way into a pirate ship at fourteen.

By sixteen, I was running my own crew. I fought and scraped my way into this life and my grandmother’s bruja magic didn’t do me any favors. Healing magic was pretty much useless for a pirate who only wanted to kill and to steal—until the nobleman ended up on my boat.

He’s tougher than any rich fob had a right to be. And he has a secret—a dangerous secret—that might just kill us all. Then again, it might make us richer than we ever dreamed.

And in the meantime, I’m falling for not one but three of the men involved in this insane race to gain the treasure when we get to the X that marks the spot. If we get there.

But what’s the life of a pirate without adventure? I never expect to live past my twenties anyway.

Destiny Blade – A Pirate Witch

Henry St John – A Stowaway Vampire

Talin Kingston – A Powerful Shifter

Mack Calabran – A Rival Pirate Captain

Roseline Baptiste – First Mate on the Shadowheart

Juan Verity – First Mate on Mack’s Ship

Tomas LeBaron – A Vampire Stalking the Shadowheart

The Shadowheart—Destiny Blade’s ship—sets sail in the Caribbean.

They’re all in a race to find a long-lost treasure—but first, they must track down the map that will take them there!
