Trapped into learning the ways of magic with the mages, Mack is creating even more enemies for herself as her temper – and her abilities – continue to get the better of her. Except she’s no longer just got herself to worry about…...

With her true identity revealed – and the threat of the Brethren hanging over her head – Mack has escaped to Scotland. It’s not just shapeshifters that are going to get in her way now though....

The first book in the Blood Destiny series introduces feisty, fiery Mack. She may not be a shapeshifter like her adopted family, but she’s not going to let anyone threaten her and hers....

Blood Destiny

Helen Harper's first urban fantasy series 'Blood Destiny' follows the experiences of fiery shapeshifter Mackenzie Smith.

There are five books in the complete urban fantasy Blood Destiny series. The heroine, Mackenzie Smith, is bad-tempered, foul-mouthed and has several very large chips on her shoulder but she’s loyal to a fault and extraordinarily powerful.

Mack navigates her way through the complicated world of faeries, mages and vampires – not to mention shapeshifters and their scary, but oh-so-very sexy Lord Corrigan. With more than 125,000 copies sold and fans worldwide, this is a series you don’t want to miss.

Now you can read the events of the Blood Destiny series from Corrigan’s point of view in the new Corrigan series!

Mack might be, to all intents and purposes, a normal looking human, however she lives with a pack of shapeshifters in Cornwall in rural England after being dumped there by her mother when she was just a young child. She desperately wants to be accepted by her surrogate family, not least because a lot of them hate her for merely being human, but for some reason her blood just won't allow the transformation to occur.

With a terrible temper to match her fiery red hair, Mack is extraordinarily useful in a fight, and when her pack alpha is brutally and abruptly murdered, she swears vengeance. Unfortunately, his murder also draws in the Brethren - the leaders of the shapeshifter world - who will slaughter everyone in Mack's small rural pack if they discover her true identity. Unfortunately Corrigan, the green-eyed muscle-bound Lord Alpha of the Brethren, doesn't let much slip by him...

                    [post_content] => Bloodmagic is the second book in Helen Harper's Blood Destiny urban fantasy series. Keep the magic going!

After escaping the claws of Corrigan, the Lord Alpha of the Brethren, Mack is trying to lead a quiet lonely life in Inverness in rural Scotland, away from anyone who might happen to be a shapeshifter. However, when she lands a job at an old bookstore owned by a mysterious elderly woman who not only has a familiar passion for herbal lore but also seems to know more than she should, Mack ends up caught in a maelstrom between the Ministry of Mages, the Fae and the Brethren. Now she has to decide between staying hidden and facing the music, as well as confronting her real feelings for the green eyed power of Corrigan himself.

                    [post_content] => Bloodrage is the third book in Helen Harper's Blood Destiny urban fantasy series.

Mack begins her training at the mages' academy in the hope that, by complying, the stasis spell will be lifted from her old friend, Mrs. Alcoon. However, once there, she finds herself surrounded by unfriendly adults and petulant teenagers, the majority of whom seem determined to see her fail.

Feeling attacked on all fronts, Mack finds it harder and harder to keep a rein on her temper. Forced to attend anger management classes and deal with the predatory attentions of Corrigan, the Lord Alpha of the shapeshifter world, her emotions start to unravel. But when she comes across a familiar text within the walls of the mages' library, which might just provide the clues she needs to unlock the secrets of her background and her dragon blood, she realises that her problems are only just beginning...

                    [post_content] => Blood Politics is the fourth book in Helen Harper's urban fantasy Blood Destiny series.

You'd think that life would finally be dealing Mack Smith a kind hand. Living in London, and with the opening of the new improved city version of Clava Books mere days away, things appear to be settling down. Other than the terrible nightmares about dragons, that is. Or the fact that she's being constantly tailed by a string of mages, shifters and faeries, all of whom are constantly demanding her attention. And that's without even bringing the temptation of Corrigan, Lord Alpha of the Brethren, into the equation.

Then, when a local dryad asks her for some help, things really start to fire up. There are some long hot summer days ahead...

                    [post_content] => Bloodlust is the fifth and final book in the Blood Destiny series. The conclusion is here, but is Mack ready?

Life's no fun being a dragon, especially when you are forced into responsibilities that involve trying to keep the peace between an array of shifters, mages and faeries in order to bring down the scariest and deadliest foe the Otherworld has ever seen. And that's not to mention the fact that your own soul mate hates your guts...

Mack Smith, a fiery Draco Wyr, is battling to come to terms with her emotions, her heritage and her true capabilities. All she has to do is defeat Endor, win back Corrigan and live happily ever after. From the streets of London and Russia, to the beaches of Cornwall, will she be able to ever win the day?

            [post_content] => Bloodfire is the first book in the Blood Destiny series, which has sold over 100,000 copies to date. Jump in and get the fire started!

Mack might be, to all intents and purposes, a normal looking human, however she lives with a pack of shapeshifters in Cornwall in rural England after being dumped there by her mother when she was just a young child. She desperately wants to be accepted by her surrogate family, not least because a lot of them hate her for merely being human, but for some reason her blood just won't allow the transformation to occur.

With a terrible temper to match her fiery red hair, Mack is extraordinarily useful in a fight, and when her pack alpha is brutally and abruptly murdered, she swears vengeance. Unfortunately, his murder also draws in the Brethren - the leaders of the shapeshifter world - who will slaughter everyone in Mack's small rural pack if they discover her true identity. Unfortunately Corrigan, the green-eyed muscle-bound Lord Alpha of the Brethren, doesn't let much slip by him...

The first book in the Blood Destiny series introduces feisty, fiery Mack. She may not be a shapeshifter like her adopted family, but she’s not going to let anyone threaten her and hers.

With her true identity revealed – and the threat of the Brethren hanging over her head – Mack has escaped to Scotland. It’s not just shapeshifters that are going to get in her way now though.

Trapped into learning the ways of magic with the mages, Mack is creating even more enemies for herself as her temper – and her abilities – continue to get the better of her. Except she’s no longer just got herself to worry about…

From the Fae to the Ministry of Mages to the shapeshifters, everyone wants a piece of Mack. The trouble is that her greatest challenge is yet to come.

The tumultuous climax to the Blood Destiny series. Will Mack win the day and get the happy ending she deserves? Or will her own true nature betray her?
