FULL MOON RISING

by Keri Arthur

A rare hybrid of vampire and werewolf, Riley Jenson and her twin brother, Rhoan, work for Melbourne's Directorate of Other Races: an organization created to police the supernatural races—and protect humans from their depredations.

While Rhoan is an exulted Guardian, aka "assassin," Riley is merely an office worker—until her brother goes missing on one of his missions. The timing couldn't be worse. More werewolf than vampire, Riley is vulnerable to the moon heat, the week-long period before the full moon when her need to mate becomes all consuming...

Luckily, Riley has two willing partners to satisfy her every need. But she will have to control her urges if she's going to find her brother...

Easier said than done as the city pulses with frenzied desire, and Riley is confronted with a very powerful—and delectably naked—vamp who raises her temperature like never before.

In matters carnal, Riley has found her match. But in matters criminal, she must follow her instincts not only to find her brother, but to stop an unholy harvest. For someone is doing some shifty cloning in an attempt to produce the ultimate warrior—by tapping into the genome of non-humans like Rhoan. Now Riley knows just how dangerous the world is for her kind—and just how much it needs her.

REAPER'S REVENGE

by Charlotte Boyett-Compo

There's unfinished business in Haines City...

Cynyr Cree and his wife Aingeal have returned to the western town to protect its citizens from two men the Reaper thought he'd killed. With Cree have come the other six Reapers of his team, sent there by the Shadowlords to help stamp out an impending threat to all mankind lurking in the mountains of the high desert.

Otaktay, the Jakotai brave who once owned Aingeal, has sworn to take her back from Cree and to slay the Reaper before her eyes. Teaming up with Silas Gibbs, another Rogue, the Jakotai will let nothing stand in his way of retrieving the woman he believes belongs to him even if it means becoming a Rogue, himself.

From the blackness of space, the Triune Goddess Morrigunia keeps a close eye on Her beloved Reapers. When She senses death and danger stalking one of Her own in the form of the Ceannus—the immoral network of scientists who had brought the Rogues to Terran shores to destroy humankind— She returns to Terra with vengeance in Her eye and annihilation in Her black heart.

Take another exciting journey to the future with Cynyr and Aingeal.

THE BURNING

by Susan Squires

A Forbidden Temptation . . .
It is 1821, and all who know the beautiful, mysterious Ann Van Helsing believe she is insane. Yet Ann's curse is not lunacy, but rather the deep psychic ability that allows her to know everything about another human being—their history, thoughts, and desires—simply by touching them. Overwhelmed by a power she can barely control, Ann roams the woods and caves near her estate, searching for a peace that eludes her. It is here she encounters the man who will change everything.

Leaves Her Yearning . . .
To repent for an unforgivable transgression against his own kind, vampire Stephen Sincai has become a vigilante who must hunt and kill those whom other vampires have made. When Ann discovers Stephen bleeding in the woods, she reaches to touch him before she can stop herself. In an instant, Ann knows every fiber of Stephen's being—and the knowledge is at once frightening and insatiable.

For Eternal Fulfillment . . .
Ann and Stephen are drawn together by a force more powerful than they know. As Stephen and Ann continues to fight against the evil surrounding them, an unseen treachery has yet to be revealed: an enemy bent on destroying them by making them choose between what they love and fear the most.

UNLEASH THE NIGHT

by Sherrilyn Kenyon

It's a predator eat predator world for the Were-Hunters. Danger haunts any given day. There is no one to trust. No one to love. Not if they want to live...

An orphan with no clan that will claim him, Wren Tigarian grew to adulthood under the close scrutiny and mistrust of those around him. A forbidden blend of two animals—snow leopard and white tiger—Wren has never listened to anyone when there was something he wanted. Now he wants Marguerite.

Marguerite D'Aubert Goudeau is the daughter of a prominent U.S. Senator who hates the socialite life she's forced to live. Like her mother before her, she has strong Cajun roots that her father doesn't understand. Still, she has no choice but to try and conform to a world where she feels like an outsider. But the world of rich and powerful humans is never to meet the world of the Were-Hunters who exist side by side with them, unseen, unknown, undetected. To break this law is to call down a wrath of the highest order.

In order to have Marguerite, Wren must fight not just the humans who will never accept his animal nature, but the Were-Hunters who want him dead for endangering their world. It's a race against time and magic without boundary that could cost Marguerite and Wren not just their lives, but their very souls...

DARK SIDE OF THE MOON

by Sherrilyn Kenyon

Susan Michaels was once the hottest reporter on the Beltway Beat until a major scandal ruined her life and left her writing stories about alien babies and Elvis sightings. Life as she once knew it is over, or so she thinks until she gets a lead on the biggest story in town: The Seattle Slayer. She heads to the local animal shelter, expecting a tip on the latest rash of killings. Instead, she gets a story about the mayor feeding citizens to a ring of vampires... yeah. Just another day in her life.

Then she gets talked into adopting a cat she's allergic to. Her first thought is to neuter the cat. But when he turns out to be a gorgeous shapeshifting man who claims to be an immortal vampire slayer she thinks: not so fast. Next thought: seek professional help.

Susan doesn't know what to believe, but as she's drawn into a paranormal world, she comes to realize that the story that could bring her credibility is too unbelievable to expose. Now it's no longer a question of bringing the truth to her readers, it's a matter of saving lives and souls, and her only ally is a man she's allergic to. In the world of the Dark-Hunters, it's always dangerous. But never more so than when one very human woman can shatter their entire world with just one story. The only question is... will she?

CRIMSON ROGUE

by Liz Maverick

Crimson City, Book 6

From the four strata of Crimson City come rogues: vampire, werewolf, human, demon. These rebels, rakes and unsung heroes have turned their backs on the extravagant vampire skyway, the gritty werewolf underground, the iron-fisted human stronghold and the fiery power of the demon underworld. Walking a thin line between heaven and hell, they make their own rules and follow their own destinies. Ironically, they will be the ones to determine if the City flourishes or fails.

Cydney Brighton knows them well, for she too is now rogue. Having escaped hell, she's discovered that the City is not what it once was—and neither is she. Only one man understands her, understands what it means to be someone or something beyond control. He's ready to come out of the darkness; and part-man, part-machine, he's willing to sacrifice almost anything to make himself whole.

PRIVATE DEMON

by Lynn Viehl

A Novel of the Darkyn, Book #2

Antiquities expert Jema Shaw has two lives: one during the day, when she catalogs museum artifacts and cares for her crippled, bitter mother; the other during the night, when she works with police to search for crime scene evidence. The only place Jem truly feels alive is in her dreams, where unlike real life she can pretend that she's safe and loved and wanted. Yet when a demon warrior begins showing up in her mind each night, he draws Jem with him into her most secret, intimate fantasies. Finding the key to solving three brutal assault and murder cases, however, isn't as difficult for Jem as waking up to discover that her dream lover is very real—as are the killers coming for both of them.

DARK DEMON

by Christine Feehan

For as long as she can remember, Natalya has been fighting demons: first in the form of childhood nightmares, then later, immortal creatures that kill and prey on the innocent—including her own twin brother.

A Carpathian who has seen nearly everything in his endless existence, Vikirnoff doesn't think he can be surprised anymore—until he faces a woman who rivals him as a vampire hunter. A formidable and gifted warrior in her own right, Natalya has a nature that is strangely familiar—yet alien—to his own. Who is this mysterious female who fears no one—not even him? Natalya could be the key to the survival of the Carpathians, but all Vikirnoff is certain of is that she is the key to his heart and soul...

DEAD WALKERS: THE PROTECTORATE

by Angelique Armae

A Quasi Vampire...

An evil entity older than time...

In Regency Ireland, a dark legacy re-emerges from the depths of the Vampire realm, leaving three souls trapped between two worlds...

Donovan Bramwell is heir to an ancient Celtic vampire kingdom and its earthly branch known as the Night Watch, a secret organization made up of vampires and humans protecting the mortal realm. But when the time comes for him to ascend to the throne, Donovan refuses. He's been harboring a deadly secret, a bite inflicted by an evil entity. And only Donovan knows he's the one soul capable of destroying the very world he was born to protect. Now his enemy has returned and Donovan is determined to save the Night Watch, even if it mean's sacrificing his own soul. But as Donovan prepares to carry out his secret plot, a female quasi vampire thwarts his plans and forces him to relive issues he's spent centuries trying to forget...

Born a royal Celt with Vampyric blood, Iceni lost her family and her tribe to the Romans and the deadly vampires who befriended the Empire. After spending centuries trying to fight the dark souls who took away her world, Iceni now has the chance to finally avenge her parents' deaths and take back the sacred relic housing her father's ancient powers. But to do so, she needs Donovan Bramwell to join her cause. And considering she didn't exactly use conventional means to get the man's attention, she must first convince the Night Watch heir she's not the enemy...

Suffering from a bite gone wrong, Vastos, a Vampyric prince older than time, returns to man's world determined to cure the ailment inflicting his soul. But to do so, he must fight his greatest antagonist—Donovan Bramwell—the one soul keeping him alive, yet causing his demise. Vastos has two choices, conquer the Night Watch and take the throne away from Donovan, or destroy Iceni and take full control of her father's powers. And to a dieing vampire, choosing one option over the other really doesn't matter...

SWEET DREAMS

by D. L. Edwards
 

The last thing Megan Montgomery wants to do is go to the police and tell them she's having horrible nightmares again that just happen to be coming true. But she hesitated to believe and a woman died.

When he finds a victim's body, exactly as she said it would be, he knows she is the only real lead he has in the most important case of his career. What he doesn't know is how he's going to keep his hands to himself until the madman from her nightmares is behind bars.

Can a woman who's not sure life is worth living and a cynical cop who doesn't believe in anything he can't touch work together to find a monster before he adds the last piece of human flesh to his grotesque creation?

Homely Louise Bauer makes a deal with a mysterious "bag lady"—if Lu will perform a ceremony using a sculpture of her ideal man, he'll come into her life and love her as she is. Soon afterward, Lu meets Eric Troy, a handsome, charming and talented actor who lights up her days and heats up her nights.

Then Lu notices that anyone who crosses Eric suffers a violent punishment, yet Eric himself always has an airtight alibi. Could Desma, the ancient-looking "bag lady," be helping him through some kind of sorcery? Why did she warn Lu never to question Eric about his past? Are they conspiring to boost Eric's acting career, or do they have something even bigger and more diabolical in mind?

Lu digs for answers, knowing that this violates the original "deal." She also knows if she loses control of Eric, he could eliminate her, too—and perhaps the last hope of survival for the human race...

RESURRECTION

by Sara Reinke

ALL HELL IS ABOUT TO BE RAISED...
Jay Frances can resurrect the dead. One touch is all it takes to restore life to even long-since cold flesh. Jay has always considered this ability more of a curse than a gift -- that is, until the night he finds JoBeth Montgomery brutally murdered in a darkened stairwell and raises her. Jo is the first he is able to restore fully, body, mind and soul. She is also bright, beautiful and before long, Jay finds that Jo fills the void that has been in his heart since the death of his wife. As a mutual attraction grows into something far deeper and more tender between them, so, too, does someone else's interest in them. Jo had not been the victim of a random act of violence. Her assailant had been someone far more methodical, a sadistic serial killer the police call the Watcher. Jay's brother, Paul, knows about the Watcher's methods all-too well. A seasoned homocide investigator, he's also the lead detective charged with catching him. When he learns about Jo, and what had happened to her during her assault, Paul recognizes the modus operandi of the Watcher. He also sees the chance to use Jo as bait, to try and lure the elusive killer out of hiding. Paul and his quarry have more in common than he can ever imagine. Paul knows of Jay's extraordinary abilities; he's seen them firsthand. But so has the Watcher. He knows Jo is alive, but that's not what tempts him any longer. He's watched something else that has fixated him: Jay and his ability to raise the dead. And now the Watcher embarks on a personal quest to see Jay do it again. And again. And again.

ENSLAVE ME SWEETLY

by Gena Showalter

COLD-BLOODED ASSASSIN, HOT-BLOODED PASSION . . . EDEN BLACK ALWAYS GETS HER MAN.

Eden Black walks among humans, protecting them from the murderous evil of other-worlders who abduct and enslave. And though she appears to be human herself, Eden is an alien, a Raka, distinguished by ! her golden hair and skin, and gifted with the ominous ability to kill without remorse—and with total accuracy. Until the fateful night she has one shot to eliminate her target, a human slaver— and misses.

"Failure" is not in Eden's vocabulary. Neither is "partner"—but that's what she is forcibly assigned after recovering from her disastrous mission. A sexy, steely-nerved human agent, Lucius Adaire enjoys nothing more than sparking the fury -- and rousing the desire—of the fiery female assassin too proud to admit defeat. Locked in an assignment they ca! nnot afford to lose, Lucius and Eden find themselves bound in two high-stakes, heart-pounding games: the sensual web of kill or be killed and the erotic dance of seduction.

SILHOUETTE NOCTURNE

Writing Guidelines:

Nocturne is looking for stories that deliver a dark, very sexy read that will entertain readers and take them from everyday life to an atmospheric, complex, paranormal world filled with characters struggling with life and death issues. These stories will be fast-paced, action-packed and mission-oriented, with a strong level of sensuality. The hero is a key figure — powerful, mysterious and totally attractive to the heroine. In fact, both main characters are very powerful, and their conflict is based on this element. The author must be able to set up a unique existence for the characters, with its own set of rules and mythologies. We are looking for stories of vampires, shape-shifters, werewolves, psychic powers, etc. set in contemporary times.
