The Compound Series

contemporary fantasy // paranormal suspense // LGBTQ+ romance

Book 1: Dark Empathy

“Emotions are powerful. Dangerous. You can’t afford to have them, especially here. Better to have nothing at all so it can’t be used against you.”

These are the rules:

1. Rare and powerful empaths never escape the compound.
(Bastian Lucas escaped a year ago, and just because he’s been dragged back doesn’t mean he won’t escape again.)

2. Compound officers don’t ask questions.
(Captain Henry Mortimer has always followed orders, but Bastian’s arrival—and the disappearance of one of Henry’s team—have him wondering things he probably shouldn’t be wondering.)

When Major Valentine orders Bastian and Henry to investigate a series of murders committed by an asset with powers similar to Bastian’s, it brings to light more than just a cover up. Things like why an empath who shouldn’t exist is killing senators, what’s really behind the compound’s sinister asset program, and whether Bastian and Henry will live to see the end of this case.

Because they’re in danger of breaking rule number three as well:

3. Don’t fall in love.


TRIGGER WARNINGS: Suicidal ideation, murder, emotional abuse, sexual situations

Available in e-book and paperback

What Readers Are Saying About the Compound Series

I loved both Bastian and Henry; their characters were well developed, flawed, and likeable. The love story was sweet, and even though the suspense plot is the main focus, the development of their feelings for each other really made me cheer for them.

Felicia Blaedel, romance author
