Weather Warden (Adult Urban Fantasy)Edit

Joanne Baldwin is a Weather Warden and part of an organization that rents space from the UN. Their mission is supposed to be alleviating natural disasters before millions of people die. Joanne shows up on the run, in her hot Mustang "Delilah", from a murder of which she has been accused; she thinks if she can find Lewis Orwell, with all three Warden capabilities—Earth, Fire, and Weather—who is in hiding, she can get help. Lewis' last known action among the Wardens was to steal three bottles containing Djinn, the supernatural beings, many of whom partner with Wardens to do their work. Her life becomes one huge complication as she learns a lot of truths people do not want her to know.

The Outcast Season (Adult Urban Fantasy)Edit

On August 24, 2007, Caine announced on her mailing list and her blog that she had sold a four-book series called "Outcast Season" to Roc Books. Describing the upcoming series, she said "This series is a spin-off of the Weather Warden series, and will follow the story of a Djinn who's been cut off from her fellows, and must rely on the goodwill of a Warden partner for her very existence. Along the way, she has to face enemies and challenges that the Djinn can't, or won't face themselves."[13] The series was published yearly in February since 2009.

In 2017, Caine began publication of an intense new thriller series about Gwen Proctor, the ex-wife of an infamous serial killer who is constantly on guard for her kids against Internet trolls and real-life stalkers. When a body turns up in the lake outside their front door, and it appears to be connected to her ex-husband's methods, the spotlight's now on Gwen and her kids ... and she might never escape it again.
