Roman Draganesti is a vampire with a problem. He's lost one of his fangs, biting something he shouldn't have. He has one night to find a dentist and get his fang fixed before his natural healing abilities close the wound forever, leaving him a lopsided eater for all eternity. Shanna Whelan is a mortal with a problem. After witnessing a gruesome murder, she's next on a hit list. And her career as a dentist appears to be over because now, she faints at the sight of blood. When Roman rescues her from an assassination attempt, she wonders if she's found the one man who can keep her alive. Can she conquer her fear of blood in order to fix Roman' s fang? And if she does, will he use his fangs on her?

In 13th century Hungary,

Lucien Korvina comes face to face with mythical beings from his childhood nightmares. Legendary Sagitarry and their beastmasters the Manicore, descend on cloven hooves upon his tranquil, rustic village and wreck havoc, killing and mutilating everything in their path.

Left for dead from grievous wounds, Luc ien is found by the mysterious Sibylline, a Revenant queen from beyond space and time. In her fangs is the promise of eternal life and when she pierces the dying man’s jugular, he becomes One with the Blood. As one of the Undead, he has become her plaything—her prince of the Revenants.

Khamsin has no idea who her parents were or from whence she came. Growing up on an old cruise ship turned orphanage after the Great War of 2052, she has never known love. Captured by Lucien’s men, she fights to escape the clutches of what she believes is pure evil—vampire beings intent on draining her blood and enslaving her body, forcing her into thrall to a Revenant master.
In the great keep at Modartha, Khamsin learns the true ways of the Revenants when—despite her fear of him—she falls in lust and love with Lucien Korvina. There is but one problem—Sibylline.

What does a five hundred year old, cultured male vampire want? Sebastian Montgomery Chateaufix stares at the mirror and wonders. His reflection eludes him as usual but that doesn't matter. What matters is that in five hundred years he hasn't found what eludes him—a soul mate.
But that is about to change.

He finds himself on The Mating Game after unknowingly sucking up Viagra with his meal. And as Sebastian is about to discover, Viagra + red wine + a Vampire = completely stoned. But that doesn't matter. He's met the pixie of his dreams!

Pixies, as everyone knows, are the trailer trash of the supernatural world. Vampires are the aristocrats. So when Jessica finds herself in front of her chosen one—a vampire who obviously lost some stupid bet—she has only one choice, to deck him. And she does.

It's love at first bite. But in order to live happily ever after, Sebastian has to pass Jessica off as an aristocrat to Queen Mabb and the fairy court at summer solstice. Jessica's education is about to begin.

That is, if she can get the bubblegum out of her bleached blonde beehive hairdo.

Rogue had joined the Raven Clan after his own grandfather had been killed by a vampire and one of the Ravens—Drake—had saved his Aunt Grace from the same fate. Rogue had only been on one mission to destroy a Clutch of vampires. This would be his second. He thought he was prepared for the battle ... until he met his prey. Kaitlyn Gale, a beautiful, fiery-haired fledgling vampire, was going crazy. One night of passion while on vacation in New York City had changed her life forever. Now she was trying to figure out exactly what was wrong with her. Why she avoided daylight. Why she craved blood, of all things. It had to be a virus. Had to be. Back home now in Indiana and working at her job in the hospital lab, she can run tests on her own blood while she stealthily steals bags of blood from the blood storage to tame her appetite. But her life takes another wild turn when she literally runs into Rogue Shanley. Kaitlyn is drawn to him, not realizing the dangerousness of the situation until Rogue tells her exactly who and what he is—a vampire hunter sent to kill her.

Having lured a president into her bed in the Fictionwise humor-best seller "I'm Undead and I Vote", Tiffany Golden will now be lured in turn to a vampire master's castle. (Except that she insists on saying he invited her there, because “lured” is such a stereotype). There, she will find a vegetarian were-Maltese and her alpha werewolf mate, a vampire bride determined to become a licensed Realtor and, oh yes, the prospect of (literally) everlasting love.

It's a tough life for witch Rachel Morgan, sexy, independent bounty hunter, prowling the darkest shadows of downtown Cincinnati for criminal creatures of the night.

She can handle the leather-clad vamps and even tangle with a cunning demon or two. But a serial killer who feeds on the experts in the most dangerous kind of black magic is definitely pressing the limits.

Confronting an ancient, implacable evil is more than just child's play -- and this time, Rachel will be lucky to escape with her very soul.

On the trail of a serial killer, vampire Quentin Albermarle is mistaken for the killer by a police special task force. Once the smoke clears, Quentin finds himself in a delicious position—atop one of the unit's crack officers, Darcy Henry.

In need of Quentin's access to the vampire sub-culture, the task force leadership invites Quentin to join the crime unit as a special advisor, much to the chagrin of the men in the unit, and especially, of Darcy.

A no-nonsense cop with no time for romance, Darcy suddenly finds herself embroiled in a steamy love triangle between her mortal partner, Joe, and the handsome vampire. Going from abstinence to wantonness, she is unable to resist the two men's relentless seduction or her own sensual curiosity about a vampire's special "kiss".

When the real killer threatens the life of someone close to her, Darcy makes a choice that forever binds the three of them together.

For American Stephanie Cahill, Bella Vista is a new beginning—a chance to put her painful past behind her. Yet, from the moment the first body is discovered at the site of an archeological dig, Stephanie feels as if she's being watched, followed, studied...hunted.

Archeologist Grant Peterson senses something odd about this dig, something that has him locking his door at night. And now, the echoes of a burial site's ancient legend can be found in the chilling signature of a killer on the loose, as one by one, young women start disappearing, only to be found horribly mutilated.

The powerful attraction between Stephanie and Grant is a complication neither can afford as they are pulled into a desperate race against time to keep Stephanie from joining the ranks of the missing. For nothing in Bella Vista is what it seems. No one can be trusted. And those closest to Stephanie may prove the most dangerous of all.
