As the Collegium council’s top sheriff of the southeastern United States, Valeria Banning doesn’t just take her job seriously, she takes it personally. So when a notorious traitor wanted by the authorities suddenly risks his life to save hers, she has to wonder why.


As a mage, Griffin is sworn to protect innocents from dark magic, which is how he finds himself fighting side by side with the beautiful Valeria Banning. But when the council finds out the two have been working together, they’re both left running for their lives-from the law, the threat of a ghoul takeover, and a possible Collegium mole.

"4 Stars! Book one of The Protectors is a paranormal romance debut novel that readers will not soon forget. In an inventive turn, Northcott chooses to focus on magic and demons instead of the typical, run-of-the-mill vampires and werewolves plot. The characters take an emotional roller-coaster ride throughout the book - but the excitement doesn't stop there. Action and strong fantasy elements are just two of the ingredients that make this book an out-of-this-world read."
