Will the sins of the father be the sins of the daughter?
As Rae struggles with new friends, a new school and a star-struck forbidden love, she must also face the ultimate challenge: receive a tattoo on her sixteenth birthday with specific powers that may bind her to an unspeakable darkness. It's up to Rae to undo the dark evil in her family's past and have a ray of hope for her future.
Book Two: Treasured Secrets by C.M. Owens

The sight of him leaves her unbalanced and almost incoherent.
Stolen glances and accidental grazes leave her with a fever almost every time. But his mixed signals get her high one second before leaving her to plummet the very next. In a world full of secrets, looks can be deceiving. Even her own reflection has been hiding the truth of what’s to come.
It doesn’t take long to realize why Tallis sends her on such highs and lows. His blood, his ties, and his secrets rival hers. And when the reality Aria has known shatters to make way for the fantasy she never believed, it all spirals out of control.
It’s her they want, but he’ll stand in the way…

So far the stories are alright, however the editors should be fired! Wrong words, horible grammer, missing words make it difficult to read at times. Not sure I will continue with these series.
Correction to previous comment Cora's Kismet in the collection Glitter is only a prequel to the story as are most of the stories in this collection.
