To save her aunt from a dark curse, Tabitha becomes a thief to thwart the plans of the man she loves, who's intent on destroying the curse and her aunt.


Varen Crowther is an enforcer who rules the crime lords and the cartels of the world for the dark sect known as The Horned Gods. Brutal and wild, yet startling in his good looks, he's a jerk with a cocky smirk while Tabitha is just a servant to high-ranking families, someone seen but never noticed. Except by Varen. And while Tabitha is planning a heist to save her cursed aunt, Varen is already at work stealing her heart, leaving Tabitha torn: betray the man she's falling for to save her aunt, or give in to her new forbidden romance, at the risk of Varen discovering the dark power inside her that will destroy everything they know?

(RISING is a stand-alone book in the Little Bird Series, but can also be read as a prequel to BOUND.)
