Fire In The Heart
(A Metahuman Files: Classified Novella, No. 03)
By Hailey Turner
Surrender to vows.
Staff Sergeant Alexei Dvorkin has come a long way since being turned into a metahuman, and all he wants to do is marry the man he loves. A wedding is easy, but it’s the honeymoon where his past unexpectedly catches up with him.
A future together.
All Agent Sean Delaney wanted was a romantic honeymoon with his new husband. When he and Alexei stumble into a fellow operative’s mission on the luxury gambling resort island Fortuna-sur-mer, they get more than they bargained for in their newly-minted civilian lives.
Destined to burn.
Forced to choose between staying and joining the mission or leaving to stay safe and postpone their honeymoon, Alexei and Sean make the only decision they can—to fight.
Fire in the Heart is a 28,000-word novella that takes place after New Horizons in the Metahuman Files: Classified series. Reading the prior books is not necessary to enjoy this one.
If you’re new to Metahuman Files, (which I was before reading Fire in the Heart) you can catch up with the first book in the series HERE.

A fantastic taster into Hailey’s Metahuman world!!!
This was my first read of Hailey’s Metahuman sci-fi series and I loved it! It can be read as a standalone/established couple read but obviously many other couples are mentioned and their team/found family is present and mentioned throughout this novella that would probably be better enjoyed or at least allow for a better understanding of the intricacies between all the characters and their team role better if I had read the previous books. That being said I loved this story and all the characters and now am desperate to go back and read the previous books.
I loved Alexei and Sean and enjoyed their wedding and interrupted honeymoon. I enjoyed the interaction between Alexei & Sean and Jaime & Kyle and their team/family dynamics. I enjoyed the honeymoon’s interruption and thrill Hailey loves to inject into her writing and now I really need to know what happens next.
A highly recommended novella that is a great addition to the series or the perfect taster to enrapture you to Hailey’s Metahumans Series.

A Ferry of Bones & Gold (Soulbound, Book 1)
By Hailey Turner
Narrated by Gary Furlong
When the gods come calling, you don’t get to say no.
Patrick Collins is three years into a career as a special agent for the Supernatural Operations Agency when the gods come calling to collect a soul debt he owes them. An immortal has gone missing in New York City and bodies are showing up in the wake of demon-led ritual killings that Patrick recognizes all too easily from his nightmares.
Unable to walk away, Patrick finds himself once again facing off against mercenary magic users belonging to the Dominion Sect. Standing his ground alone has never been a winning option in Patrick’s experience, but it’s been years since he’s had a partner he could trust.
Looking for allies in all the wrong places, Patrick discovers the Dominion Sect’s next target is the same werewolf the Fates themselves have thrown into his path. Patrick has been inexplicably attracted to the man from their first meeting, but desire has no place in war. That doesn’t stop Patrick from wanting what he shouldn’t have. Jonothon de Vere is gorgeous, dangerous, and nothing but trouble—to the case, to the fight against every hell, and ultimately, to Patrick’s heart and soul.
In the end, all debts must be paid, and Patrick can only do what he does best—cheat death.
A Ferry of Bones & Gold is a 115k word m/m urban fantasy with a gay romantic subplot and an HFN ending.
