Mind Mates

Pull of the Moon Book 4.

Pretty little shifter, wizard prince—their taboo love could burn the barriers between worlds.

Shifter Emma Singer has more problems than she can shake her pretty little wolf tail at. Her heirloom journal is missing, her pack alpha wants her for his harem, and her family plans to sell her to him. Even her wicked little crush on her hot boss is doomed—why would six-and-a-half feet of handsome royal wizard want a boring, good-girl iota shifter like her? Not to mention her only power is going berserker—that's a real relation-shipwreck!

Gabriel Light is a wizard prince who turned his back on his exceptional powers after he was accused of causing his parents' death. Now he pours his intellect into his tech business, and hides his naughty, forbidden lust for his pretty shifter clerk. But when his sister is imprisoned, and Emma is kidnapped, it's time for this alpha geek-wizard to decloak with all laser cannons blazing. Only one problem—how can he be sure Emma won’t get caught in the crossfire?

Then Gabriel and Emma stumble on hidden magic, a key to power beyond imagining—if they can stay alive long enough to use it. But if Emma unleashes her berserker wolf on their enemies, can Gabriel draw her back from the brink before she destroys everyone in her path?

Warning: Contains a hot wizard prince panting to bring out a good-girl shifter’s naughty side. Accidental voyeurism, deliberate orgasms, a jealous rival wizard, and fun with prophecy.

MM PDPurest Delight/5 Stars! "[Emma and Gabriel] got each other, they understood what the other was saying when people around them would just scratch their heads trying to figure it out. They each thought they had unrequited love for the other and they each had their insecurities and problems. Together they found a way to make things work, they found a new kind of magic and they found that prophecies, though obtuse, can be fulfilled and that love will always win over hate. [Mary Hughes is]  just an author that draws you into the story, makes it exciting and then just has you giggling, smiling and laughing throughout the story." ~Kitty Angel for Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews

5 Love Ya5 Love Yas! "This book is full of intrigue…who is trying to frame Emma as the person who turned in Gabriel's sister as a witch mated to a wolf? How did Emma's ne'er-do-well brother get released from the Council prison after getting a life sentence? And what does Emma have to do with an ancient prophecy that has everyone so excited? […] And did I mention that Gabriel and Emma are probably the only supernatural geek squad folks I've seen?" ~

Her whole future is endangered by a theft. When her new boss finds out, will he condemn her or save her?

Iota wolf shifter Emma Singer has just snared a coveted job at Gabriel Light's Choice Buy store when a pricy high-tech phone is stolen—and it looks like Emma's the thief. How can she convince her new boss she’s innocent?

Wizard prince Gabriel Light has bigger problems than the fact that his store has been robbed. A chance touch of his new hire lights a bonfire of lust in him. But witch + shifter = stupidly huge taboo. If the Witches’ Council finds out, they’ll have his head. Literally.

Yet the more Gabriel uncovers about the crime, the more unsettled he is. Especially when the thief returns and seems to be deliberately targeting Emma…


Heart Mates


Pull of the Moon book 2

To survive, they’ll have to find the missing pieces—starting with their own.

Sophia Blue wishes the cute little doggie she’s found in her aunt’s abandoned magic shop could talk. Maybe he’d tell her if the old woman has wandered off on a walkabout, or if there’s foul magic afoot. Odd how the scruffy little fur ball seems to understand Sophia’s every word.

Just a few years ago, she might have cast a spell to translate the dog’s ear-piercing yaps. But her magic is out of her reach, locked away in penance for mistakenly helping an evil wizard.

Noah Blackwood was the last person to see Sophia’s aunt before she hit him with a spell gone sideways. By night he’s two-hundred pounds of authority, a respected local pack leader. By day? He’s twelve pounds of poof dog. A tasty morsel for the five anti-alpha wolves gunning for him.

The instant the sun goes down and Sophia’s eyes meet Noah’s, fire ignites between them in an incendiary kiss. But when the evil wizard reappears intent on murder, Sophia must break through killing layers of pain to find her magic. And Noah must reclaim all that he is—even defy the law—to claim the woman his heart knows is his mate.

Warning: Contains a sassy ex-witch princess who hasn’t picked up a wand in four years, and a rare alpha wolf who proves attitude knows no boundaries. A little drooling, a lot of panting, and a few nips in all the right places. Flea collar not included.

NOR Top Pick

Top Pick! "I loved the book!
Be ready for a wild and adventurous story." ~DebA, Night Owl Reviews

"I just love it when I find a new author on Netglley. The joy of the hunt and the thrill of discovery and Mary Hughes is my exciting new find. Heart Mates is book one in her Pull of the Moon Series. A series that deals with forbidden love, power struggles, and of course the desire to rule the world and those that would stop it."
~ Shauni S, Tea and Book

"I absolutely loved every page. There are some smoking hot sex scenes, all beautifully done. I know from the story there are at least two more books to come and I can't wait to read them." ~ Petula for Warrior Woman Winmill

"Will Sophia be able to reverse Noah’s hex in time? What secrets is Noah hiding that makes this hex more complex in him? How will the Council react to a witch and a shifter doing the forbidden? Can what started out as a hex really turn into love?" ~ Sami for A Closet Full of Books

"This book was fabulous from beginning to end. […] there is nothing this story does not have. The sex is definitely hot and the plot has so many twists and turns I had to stop and catch my breath to keep up. […] Five stars without a doubt." ~ Carrie Rogers for Luscious Literature

"The story has laughs, pain, murder, suspense, wolfs, witches, love, and heartbreak." ~ Renee for Renee Entress's Blog

a terrific plot full of murder, magic and mayhem… It’s essentially the characterisation of out two main protagonists that catapulted the story from an average fantasy read to a full blown steamy piece of intelligent and well thought out writing. Noah is a delectable combination of sweet and fierce, strong yet vulnerable, handsome but humble and when paired with the hilarious and neurotic heroine Sophia they just spark together to create some thigh-clenchin’ sexual situations and boy are there plenty of those and the great thing is each and every scene is hot and fresh, there are no repetitive and dull oversaturated sex scenes, in fact one involving a jail cell or two was probably the best and most original, not to mention arousing piece of erotic writing I’ve ever read. Don’t be fooled into thinking it’s all sex and no substance as Pull the Moon packs quite the punch with its well developed and executed plot. The battle scenes are superb, the gore and blood on point and the romance just a beautiful touch ribboning through the bad and dramatic times. […]  a top-notch paranormal romance" ~ Nicole McCurdy for Hooked on Books

MAProphecy Mates

Pull of the Moon book 1.

Daniel Light is a powerful wizard prince on the hunt for a dangerous prophecy—only to find it's in the hands of Zoe Blackwood, the woman he'd adored but who'd friend-zoned him when he was a gangly teen. A masked ball gives Daniel the chance to seduce Zoe, to get his hands on the parchment plus settle accounts with her. And yet he finds he wants to woo her.

Wolf shifter Zoe Blackwood throws a classy, grand masked ball as her last chance at romance before her wolf forces her to mate. She remembers Daniel as that rich gangly boy she could always count on yet never really noticed. When he shows up at the ball, he's still rich but not gangly at all, and she notices his deadly grace plenty. But can she still count on him?

Then an evil fire wizard crashes the party, eager to get his hot hands on Zoe. She's shocked to learn both men are really after her prize, an ancient parchment containing a terrible prophecy—and she's caught in the crosshairs.

Warning: A wolf shifter on the cusp of mate-or-else, a smokin' hot wizard who won't let anything stand in his way, and fun in closets.
