When Nick takes a client caught in an apparent grudge between competitive bass fishermen, he discovers he has unknowingly entangled himself in the secessionist plot of healthcare magnate, Bruce Reynolds, to create the sovereign nation of Texas. Hoping to pass the case to the Texas Rangers, Nick is instead recruited to head the Governor’s special task force. Complicating Nick’s task, Reynolds is Governor Fran Adamson’s major campaign contributor and secret lover. 
Faced with Reynolds’ remotely controlled drone air force destroying strategic targets across the state, Nick and his partner and sometimes lover, Theresa, make a desperate attempt to prevent civil war, the destruction of the Governor’s political career, and a client’s murder, while keeping their love intact.
In his scheme for glory, Bruce Reynolds didn’t plan on Nick Sibelius, who wants the wannabe secessionist to know, when he says don’t screw with Texas, he damned well means it.

Claire, the Devil’s assistant, knows very little about the world she was dropped into five years ago, when she inherited her mother’s unpaid debt to the Demon King.

In a last ditch effort to save her life and get out of her deal with the Devil, she sets out to solve Junior’s murder only to be taken prisoner by the four most dangerous immortal hell spawn alive.

Not to be out done, the Pagan Queen Mab, claims Claire for entering her realm uninvited. She has an old debt to settle with her brother the Devil. Taking Claire from him after losing her years ago is just icing on the cake.

Will Claire win her freedom, and save herself from the Devil? Or be trapped by Mab forever?

As Ilsa and Moshe struggle with their faith and their attraction to each other, Moshe’s true prey, Horst Bress, a vile, freak of a prison guard, has decided to turn the tables on the famed Nazi hunter, and anyone close to him is fair game.
