Overview: Aja has been writing stories since the age of six, and novels since the age of thirteen. While she’d be the first to admit that those early efforts weren’t particularly good, she sure loved putting them down on paper!
Genre: Paranormal Romance
1. Pure Healing – Enter the world of Pure Ones, a race of immortal, supernaturally powerful beings who protect humankind, where sexual intercourse with anyone other than one’s Eternal Mate leads to a slow, painful death within thirty days.
The Healer of the race, Rain, is the only exception to this rule. To harness and accumulate enough energy to heal severe wounds, especially as the war between her people and the vampire hordes accelerates, she must take a Consort once every ten years and draw strength from his blood and body. But as the war wears on, few Pure-males who are strong enough to serve as her Consort remain. Valerius, Protector of the race, is the strongest candidate.
Despite their instant attraction ten years ago when they first met, Valerius has staunchly avoided applying to be the Healer’s Consort. The brutality and violence he suffered as a Roman sex slave in his human life ate away at his soul, leaving a dark abyss of torment and self-doubt.
Now, as Rain’s strength drains with every healing act, Valerius cannot escape the fact that he may be the only one who can save her, and in so doing, afford his people greater hope for the future as battles intensify.
Will Rain and Valerius find their way to each other as the struggles between good and evil evolve?

6. Dark Redemption – All his existence, he’s fought for the wrong side…
Born and trained to be the most fearsome Dark warrior the immortal races had ever seen, Enlil of Anatolia had only ever known ruthlessness, brutality and rigid control. He was a weapon used by others, his life never his own.

She sees a soul worth redeeming.
7. Pure Awakening – I have always loved him.
Though that love has evolved, metamorphosed, transmuted over time (and sometimes it felt a little—maybe a lot—like hate), what hasn’t ever changed is that I love him.
But I didn’t comprehend the depth of my love, the teeth and claws and desperate prayers of my love, until six hours ago:
They say he’s missing…
The Royal Zodiac—me and my inner circle—hasn’t been complete these past two years since the attack. Every time we get close to a potential candidate to recruit into our ranks, they disappear, the most likely scenario being that Medusa and her minions got to them first.
And now she has Dalair.
I won’t rest until I get him back.
My name is Sophia Victoria St. James. I am Queen of the Pure Ones.
This is my Awakening.
8. Pure Ecstasy – Jade: She is a ruthless, cunning vampire queen, the most powerful amongst all the Hives in the world. Beautiful, predatory, and alluringly dangerous, she’s a huntress who revels in blood and sexual pleasure.
Seth: He is calm, cool, and level-headedness personified, as the most effective negotiator and mediator amongst the Pure Ones. Known by the moniker of “Monk,” he thought he could resist any and all temptation.
3 years ago, they made a deal, one that gave the Pure Ones a critical advantage against a deadly foe. But the price he paid still haunts him to this day.
3 years ago, she played a delicious game, not realizing until it was almost too late, how he changed her entire world.
Now, common enemies force their paths to cross again. Only this time, the stakes are higher, the risk is greater, and the love—should they choose to claim it—will be worth every sacrifice.
9. Dark Obsession – Maximus has always been in control.
As the Commander of the Chosen, the Dark King’s personal guard, he can’t afford to step wrong. With his eternal familiar at his side, he can loosen up, give in to moments of carefree fun. But all that changed on a fateful night.
She will always find a way back to him…
Ariel Kyles is an experiment with programmed thoughts but no soul—until a black panther’s spirit possesses her body. Suddenly, she discovers whole new needs, desires, and a primal, irresistible obsession: Maximus.
Fate will not be denied…
Maximus and Ariel each have secrets about themselves to uncover, and their journey leads them to a fantastic, hidden world.
But the most delicious mystery of all may prove to be their Destiny together.
10. Pure Providence – All my existence, I have loved one woman.
But she was never meant to be mine.
I loved her when she was the intended bride for another.
I betrayed him too.
I loved her after they married.
I took what wasn’t mine.
I paid my penance by dying in his stead.
But it wasn’t enough to restore the Balance.
When the Goddess gave me a chance to make things right, to serve as a soldier of the Pure Ones, I embraced that offer. Even though what I really wanted to do was stay dead and numb.
Never to be reawakened in this world.
Never to feel again.
To yearn and desire and seethe with jealousy and despair at my own helplessness.
The Goddess warned me at the moment of my death and rebirth not to want her again. For our paths would cross in the future, though I wouldn’t know the time and place. Nor would I recognize her physical incarnation.
For she was never meant to be mine.
Will never be mine.
But the moment I realized who she was—the Pure Queen I’d been assigned to protect as the Paladin—the moment I recognized her soul, I Fell again.
I wanted. I craved. I yearned. I seethed.
I pushed her away over and over again. Made her angry and confused.
Made her hate me.
But Goddess above! I cannot change how I feel. I cannot stop wanting her.
Cannot stop loving her.
All my existence, my body, heart and soul have belonged to one woman.
Even though she can never be mine.
I love her still.
I love her forever.
This is the beginning of the end of our story.
Judge me if you dare.
11. Pure Magnetism – A lost king…
Goya is a rare magical being: a royal Beast. And not just any animal shifter, but the king of the earthly realm–the great white tiger. But now he is a king without a home, cut off from his kin, and trapped in a human body against his will.
A single mother…
Maddie Peterson is a career-minded single mother who has a fundamental distrust (and often, dislike) of men, especially in light of her cheating ex-husband and manipulative co-worker. But, then, she’s never met a male like Goya before.
Opposite worlds collide…
When Maddie welcomes the silent stranger into her home, there is no denying their animal attraction. She teaches him how to be human, and he teaches her how to be wild.
But when he gives his heart and soul to her, the pure spirit of the noblest of Beasts, is she brave enough to accept him as a partner into her life, as well as step into his fantastical, dangerous world?
12. Pure Surrender – Aella Alexander:
An Amazon warrior in her human life, Aella has always taken and fought for what she wanted, and what Aella wanted, she got.
The mysterious new recruit to the Pure Ones’ team of Elite soldiers is not what he seems. He has a critical role to fulfill to maintain Balance in the universe…
He cannot afford to be distracted by her.
Destiny is shaped by choices made:
The past cannot be changed, a past that neither Cloud nor Aella remembers. But the future is yet unwritten. In this present time, with this second chance, Cloud must make his ultimate stand: to carry out the role he’s been assigned, or to embrace an uncertain future, knowing that his choice would be irrevocable. Absolute.
And that the souls of countless innocents depend upon it…
Can Aella help him choose wisely, or will she lead them all to ruin?
13. Pure Darkness – We are who we are…
For as long as it can remember, it has been known as the Creature. Neither he nor she, neither Pure nor Dark…a beautiful abomination to all races and Kinds. A faithful henchman of the evil Medusa, it has perpetrated dark deeds beyond redemption, even if its own hands have never directly taken a life.
We are who we’re made…
Once upon a time, the Creature was conceived in love, a True Love that endured across millennia of trials and tribulations. Its parents have never given up hope that they would one day recover their lost son. And, too, the Creature was not always as it is now. But circumstances shriveled its heart and suffocated its soul, forging a being who cares about nothing and no one—
