THE REST FALLS AWAY

by Colleen Gleason

The Gardella Vampire Chronicles: Book 1

Beneath the glitter of dazzling 19th-century London Society lurks a bloodthirsty evil....

Vampires have always lived among them, quietly attacking unsuspecting debutantes and dandified lords as well as hackney drivers and Bond Street milliners. If not for the vampire slayers of the Gardella family, these immortal creatures would have long taken over the world.

In every generation, a Gardella is called to accept the family legacy, and this time, Victoria Gardella Grantworth is chosen, on the eve of her debut, to carry the stake.

But as she moves between the crush of ballrooms and dangerous, moonlit streets, Victoria's heart is torn between London's most eligible bachelor, the Marquess of Rockley, and her enigmatic ally, Sebastian Vioget.

And when she comes face to face with the most powerful vampire in history, Victoria must ultimately make the choice between duty and love.

WHEN DARKNESS COMES

by Alexandra Ivy

 

Guardians of Eternity

It should have been a dream-come-true.  What woman wouldn’t want to trade in her humdrum job and boring life to become a goddess?  A goddess who is not only immortal, but also bound for an eternity to a drop-dead gorgeous vampire?  Unfortunately being a goddess isn’t all that it’s cracked up to be, as Abby Barlow soon discovers.  In fact, within a few hours she is on the run from a horde of demons, a pack of zombies, and a powerful wizard who is intent on sacrificing her to his dark prince.

And if that isn’t bad enough she’s lost her job, her rent is due, and it turns out that being the savior of the world doesn’t come with a paycheck.

Welcome to the Guardians of Eternity!

SHARDS OF CRIMSON

FIVE BRAND NEW STORIES FROM THE ORIGINAL AUTHORS OF THE USA TODAY BESTSELLING SERIES


It's been said there's no such thing as quiet here. Ever since the metropolis first became home to paranormals, discord was named queen. But who will be her king—vampires, werewolves, demons or men? One thing remains sure: This land is a battleground and conflict is eternal. Yet there are those who join together—strangers, enemies, lovers. Here, one silken caress can be deadlier than a bullet, but some still know joy. For darkness can become light, and in one sharp instant pain can become ecstasy, and hatred, love.

by Harper Allen

Darkheart & Crosse: Book 3

Ever since Tash's grandfather Darkheart revealed the big family secret—Tash and her triplet sisters were born of a vampire slayer—Tash's life has been a series of surprises. But none of that prepared her for the possibility of turning vamp herself.

That's the good news. The bad? The most gorgeous man she's ever laid eyes on is over two hundred years old. And one of her sisters wants to stake him, while the other wants to doom him to a life of tortured guilt. Worse yet, with a new Queen Vamp in town, it's up to Tash to infiltrate her army. As a semihuman, there's no danger of Tash falling under Lady Jasmine's control. Or so she thinks….

YOU SUCK: A LOVE STORY
by Christopher Moore

Being dead sucks. Make that being undead sucks.

Literally. Just ask Thomas C. Flood. Waking up after a fantastic night unlike anything he's ever experienced, he discovers that his girlfriend, Jody—the woman of his dreams—is a vampire. And surprise! Now he's one, too.

For some couples, the whole biting-and-blood thing would have been a deal breaker. But Tommy and Jody are in love, and they vow to work through their issues. Like how much Jody should teach Tommy about his new superpowers (and how much he needs to learn on his own). Plus there's Tommy's cute new minion, sixteen-year-old goth girl Abby Normal. (Well, someone has to run errands during daylight hours!)

Making the relationship work, however, is the least of Jody and Tommy's problems. Word has it that the vampire who nibbled on Jody wasn't supposed to be recruiting any new members into the club. Even worse, Tommy's erstwhile turkey-bowling pals are out to get him, at the urging of a blue-dyed Las Vegas call girl named (duh) Blue.

And that really sucks.

BLOOD SON

by Erica Orloff

 

And now Elizabeth Martin was on a wild-goose chase halfway around the world to save him from madness. She didn't believe a word of his cryptic e-mail about vampires and drinking blood. Nor did she believe the drunkard who spoke of vampires ruling the small Czech village where he was last seen. Until she was put in contact with a mysterious Dhampir--the offspring of a vampire and a human. Reputed mercenaries who'll do anything--or betray anyone--for a price.

Elizabeth takes an instant disliking to Josef Darecky.

He's too edgy, intense and moody…and he arouses desires that could compromise her mission. But he's also the only man who can save her brother, who is half-turned already. And, as she forms an unlikely bond with the half-blood mercenary, she senses that only by trusting him--and winning his trust--can the vampires be fully destroyed.…

DEAD SEXY

by Amanda Ashley

 

A killer with a twisted idea for fun is really putting a crimp in Regan Delaney’s style. The former vampire hunter doesn’t know what to make of such a madman whose handiwork bodes ill for the living—and the undead! His chilling M.O.—mutilation followed by blood draining—has landed Regan the case, but all the evidence is as confusing to her as the vampire who may be the only one who can help piece it all together.

Joaquin Santiago is Master of the City, a seductive creature of the night unrivaled in power and control. With Regan, though, he may have met his match. She’s unlike anyone he’s ever known, all fury and flame, firing his desire in ways never imagined. But before he can enter her world, or she his, they are drawn into the game of a depraved and elusive killer whose sick idea of winning is to kill the competition.

POSSESSION
by Jennifer Armintrout

Blood Ties: Book 2

My father always said fear was a weakness. Well, that's easy to say when you don't have to worry about vampire slayers or holy water. I hate fear, but undead life goes on. In the two months since I was attacked in the hospital morgue and turned into a vampire, I've killed my evil sire, Cyrus, fallen in love with my new sire, Nathan, and have even gotten used to drinking blood. Just when things are finally returning to normal--as normal as they can be when sunlight can kill you--Nathan becomes possessed. And then he slaughters an innocent human.

Now it's my job to find Nathan before the Voluntary Vampire Extinction Movement does, because they're just waiting for an excuse to terminate him--and anyone foolish enough to help him. But it gets worse. It turns out that Nathan's been possessed by one of the most powerful and wicked vampires alive--the Soul Eater. And who knows what vile plan he's concocted?

With the Soul Eater and my possessed sire on the loose, I have a lot to fear. Including being killed. Again.

BENEATH THE SKIN
by Savannah Russe
 
Darkwing Chronicles: Book 3

For a vampire, temptation is never far away...

If you passed Daphne Urban on the streets of New York, you’d see a sleek young brunette dressed to kill. You’d never know she was a vampire. But the government knows.

Their ultimatum: Spy for the United States, or be terminated. And after all these centuries, Daphne is not ready to call it quits....

After a recent break-up, vampire Daphne Urban must somehow take her mind off her personal life. So she’s glad to throw herself into her work, joining her fellow antiterrorist agents to chase down a ruthless enemy—a professional who goes simply by "Gage". Mysterious, cruel, and unstoppable, this assassin is dead-set on killing a certain presidential candidate...

Team Darkwing has to find Gage before it’s too late. But during the mission, Daphne finds herself inexorably drawn back into the life she once rejected: New York’s secret vampire underworld, where all pleasures are pursued and no desire is forbidden. Especially the craving she has so long resisted—living human blood...

In an impulsive act of passion he claimed the beautiful Violet Deeds, a human, as his mate.

Now, afraid of retribution from his clan and concerned for Violet's safety, Byron takes steps to protect them both. But will it be enough? Irrevocably bound together, as the tie between Byron and Violet strengthens they step into one another's worlds, awakening long buried desires and threatening the balance of society and nature.

CARINIAN'S SEEKER

by T. J. Michaels

She’s his target…and his mate. Aw, hell!

Beautiful genius, Carinian Derrickson, wants to live long enough to date a man from the future generations of spacemen, complete with ray guns and starships. She’s not crazy, she’s just afraid of dying young of some dreaded disease, like all the rest of her family. Her research into gene therapy has shown her the way to extend her life is by emulating traits only before seen in fiction. Vampire fiction. Only the beings that shouldn’t exist are very real indeed.

Unknown to her, there’s a bad boy vampire in the lab next door with a goal quite the opposite of hers. If he has his way, he’ll bring the Vampire Council of Ethics (V.C.O.E.) to its knees.

Jon Bixler is a Seeker for the Council—an assassin and undercover operative in a world of humans. Bix must get close enough to this rogue to find out exactly how he plans to dismantle the Council. And Carinian is just the ticket. But when he meets her, all his vampire common sense flies out the window as his libido leaps off the charts. What’s he going to do now that the woman is in danger and secretly trying to do the impossible?

Bix and Carin can’t deny the combustion of love and lust between them. They accept their mating. But can they stay alive long enough to enjoy it?

GRAVE ILLUSIONS
by Lina Gardiner
 
New York City is in the grasp of a deadly, unseen enemy. At least unseen by normal society.

Lieutenant Jess Vandermire, New York City police officer, is uniquely specialized to recognize and fight this threat. It’s her job to forge a black ops team, an assortment of men and women who wouldn’t be considered for the job under normal circumstances.

But these aren’t normal circumstances. The team has to be tough, and if need be, they have to be expendable. Jess understands what she’s fighting and what’s at stake. For her, it’s all about retribution until ex-cop John Brittain is recruited to her team.

Suddenly, her priorities aren’t quite so easily definable. John Brittain has a chip on his shoulder and is as tough as they come. But is he ready for the whole truth? That combating “super” vampires whose primal need for blood and the addictive drug “Sunshine” is only the beginning of their problems? And when Jess tells him the truth about herself, will he stay and fight or will he turn against her and not only threaten their lives but destroy the fragile relationship developing between them?

THE VAMPIRE OF VENICE BEACH

by Jennifer Colt

McAfee Twins: Book 3

Two Pairs of Private Eyes Are Better Than One...

A fanged foe is threatening Venice Beach. Can the McAfee twins stop him before he drains the city dry?

Crime-fighting sisters Kerry and Terry McAfee are used to nabbing killers while wearing high heels. But when their pal Darby Applewhite—a.k.a. Ephemera, Queen of the Undead—hires them to work crowd control at the annual Venice Goth Parade, they find themselves sporting black jumpsuits and white makeup instead. Ephemera plans to promote the opening of the highly anticipated Dark Arts Galley by popping out of a coffin just as the guests are brought inside. But when the coffin lid rises, she pitches forward onto the street—and Kerry and Terry are shocked to discover that the Queen of the Undead is in fact dead after all!

Suddenly the parade of harmless misfits is transformed into a stream of potential suspects, and it’s up to the twins to find their friend’s killer. Soon they’re plunged into a nefarious world that includes dentists specializing in prosthetic fangs and a goth cult led by a thug with a forked tongue. Will threats scrawled on their Harley in blood and amorous advances from sexy Detective John Boatwright derail the twins from getting their ghoul? Not bloody likely.

HUNTING DIANA

by Doreen Orsini

How does Frank Nostrum manage to lure the strongest vamps in Mina's Cove into his pen? How does he keep them there until they meet their death beneath dawn's fiery rays? When one of their own kind, one secretly driven by jealousy, declares that his daughter is the lure, the elders of Mina's Cove pass sentence: the hunter's daughter must pay for his crimes with a single kiss, a drop of blood, a hunger denied. Torn between duty and honor, Lucian, the vampire sent to carry out the sentence, sates Diana's hunger while he searches for proof of her innocence.

Diana finds herself thrust into the arms and world of a creature she never believed existed. Can she trust him with her knowledge about his brother's death? Mina's Cove has been a haven to the peaceful vampires for nearly a century. Since the angels took pity on Mina and Dracula, blood still holds a strong attraction for these creatures of the night, but only when combined with passion. If Lucian fails to save Diana, the wrath of the angels will doom the vampires of Mina's Cove and all humans within their grasp.

BLOOD SECRETS

by Vivi Anna

Valorian Chronicles: Book 1

A young human woman is found ritualistically murdered in a downtown Necropolis hotel. It is up to Caine Valorian, a 200-year-old vampire, and his Otherworld Crime Unit to solve the unusual crime, and quickly before the human press can jump onto the story and cause a panic. To add to their already tough case, a new member, Eve Grant, transfers to their lab at the request of the mayor. Not only is she green and eager to impress the boss, but she's human. The first human ever to work in an Otherworld unit. The mayor thought it would be great press especially now with the strange human murder.

Caine has his work cut out for him, especially with his unruly team who don't appreciate any help from a human. Not only is this the toughest case of his career, but he's unusually attracted to the new girl, which can only cause trouble for them all. However, as they sink deeper and deeper into the workings of the case, Caine and Eve become closer and closer. So close that neither of them can see past each other and at the real happenings behind the scenes. The more they poke and prod at the case, the more they realize that something is going on, that this murder is only one step toward a greater purpose. Someone in the Otherworld community is calling on dark forces, in a plot to wipe out the entire human population.

Is she the woman strong enough to fight by his side and fight for him, or will the pursuit of revenge be the only thing Julian will live for?

REAL VAMPIRES HAVE CURVES

by Gerry Bartlett

 

Real Vampires: Book 1

Sometimes being a vampire bites. I mean, I haven’t seen daylight since 1604. But who could resist a chance to live forever? Especially when the man offering is hunky Scottish vampire Jeremiah Campbell. Who knew that the way you are on your big V-day, the day you turn vampire, is the way you are forever. So I’m stuck for eternity with the kind of “generous” curves that are so not in style.

Believe it or not, not everybody appreciates vampires. A techno-freak big game hunter wants to add my fangs to his tacky trophy necklace. And then there’s the killer with the pointy wooden crosses . . . As for my love life, Jerry’s hanging around and still pushing my hot buttons. And there’s this to-die-for Italian vampire who claims to be Casanova. Mr. Right? Or Mr. Right Now? If I can just stay alive long enough to enjoy both of them . . .

BE STILL MY VAMPIRE HEART
by Kerrelyn Sparks

Love at Stake: Book 3

If it was still beating. Angus MacKay has been undead for almost five hundred years and it's not often something, or someone, surprises him. Until Emma Wallace. The sight of this luscious agent from the CIA's elite Stake-Out team was enough to stop Angus in his tracks. But then he discovers that she's a vampire slayer, intent on killing the "monsters" who killed her parents. And it's Angus's job to stop her.

The only good vampire is a dead vampire. It's been Emma's motto since she committed her life to the destruction of these things. Now Angus MacKay wants to convince her differently.

Sure, he's a sexy Highland warrior who seems to have stepped off the cover of a romance novel, complete with brogue, kilt, and sword, but he's also one of them. And it's her job to kill him.

The war is on, but will it end in the destruction of one or both of them . . . or in total surrender to a passion for the ages?

WHITE KNIGHT

by Jim Butcher

The Dresden Files: Book 9

Someone is targeting the city's magic practitioners, the members of the supernatural underclass who don't possess enough power to become full-fledged wizards. Many have vanished. Others appear to be victims of suicide. But the murderer has left a calling card at one of the crime scenes--a message for Harry Dresden, referencing the book of Exodus and the killing of witches.

Harry sets out to find the killer before he can strike again, but his investigation turns up evidence pointing to the one suspect he cannot possibly believe guilty: his half brother, Thomas. Determined to bring the real murderer to justice and clear his brother's name, Harry attracts the attention of the White Court of vampires, becoming embroiled in a power struggle that renders him outnumbered, outclassed, and dangerously susceptible to temptation.

Harry knows that if he screws this one up, a lot of people will die--and one of them will be his brother.

It's a position that usually comes with years of training, but Cassie's circumstances are a little...unusual. Now she's stuck with a whopping amount of power that every vamp, fey, and mage in town wants to either monopolize or eradicate-and that she herself doesn't dare use.

What's more, she's just discovered that a certain arrogant master vampire has a geis on her-a magical claim that warns off any would-be suitors, and might also explain the rather ... intense attraction between them. But Cassie's had it with being jerked around, and anyone who tries it from now on is going to find out that she makes a very bad enemy...

SECRETS IN THE SHADOWS

by Jenna Black

Guardians of the Night: Book 2

They hunt in every major city, hidden by the crowds, shielded by disbelief. They are Killers, and their prey is human.

Not all vampires are Killers. The Guardians of the Night sacrifice the superior physical and psychic strength that comes with feeding on humans to protect them.  But the Guardians walk a thin line, for even a single kill could leave them helplessly addicted to murder.

Jules Gerard has vowed that he will never become a Killer.  But when he discovers that the man who turned him into a vampire is dead and kicking in Baltimore, the allure of extra power is tempting.

Standing in his way is a human, spitfire Hannah Moore, who has followed him to Baltimore to help him confront his past. Hannah doesn't seem to realize how dangerous vampires can be--and despite his façade of disdain, Jules has a real soft spot for the petite P.I.

Jules is going to have to choose: vengeance or love? Damnation or redemption?

UNDEAD IN THE CITY

by Hera St. Aubyn

Raised in the inner city of Detroit, musician Tempest Moon knew the only way to succeed was to be smarter -- and tougher -- than the next guy. Being a sexy, talented singer/lead guitar player with her own band was her way of being in charge of her destiny. Whether anyone else liked it, or not.

On the night of the worst blizzard the city had seen in a century, Tempest’s band was gigging in yet another downtown dive. With one more set to play before she and the band could escape the smoky lounge, a mystery man walked in. Even dripping wet from the relentless onslaught, Tempest could tell the man was unusual. If only because he was the most gorgeous male specimen she’d ever seen. But he was a little pale.

Malveaux ducked into the bar to avoid having to kill anymore of the local vampire territory boss’s worthless minions. Under most circumstances, he’d have enjoyed tracking the idiots, and tearing their hearts out. He’d learned long ago to take pleasure in his work. But Malveaux’s current circumstances were far from usual. A sexual obsession, passed to him by his sire and suddenly overwhelming, had changed all the rules of the game. If he didn’t find an “offspring” -- a female thrall to serve his sexual needs -- and soon, he’d go mad.

When he laid eyes on the charismatic musician on stage, he knew he’d found his “child.” She wouldn’t need to know he was an assassin. But she’d find out his deeper secret soon enough when he sank his fangs into the pulsing vein in her neck.

There’s just nothing like blood, sex, and rock’n’roll.

DARK MOON RISING

by F E Heaton

Vampires Realm: Book 3

Welcome to The Vampires Realm

An enemy with unimaginable power and bloodlines with centuries of hatred bred into them, two things that threaten to tear Prophecy and Valentine apart as they fight for their lives and their future together. Their vain attempt to join their houses into one army drains the last of their strength, leaving them more vulnerable than they've ever been. The tension escalates between the bloodlines, and, more dangerously, between Valentine, Prophecy and Venturi. As everything crumbles around them, defeat seems inevitable.

In one decisive move, their enemy turns the tables against them, taking what is most important to Prophecy and leaving her to fear that the terrifying visions she's been having are coming true. An enemy becomes a friend, guiding her in her time of need, and a friend becomes an enemy. Death, destruction and danger surround her, but the help of an old ally brings her the army she needs and the dark moon brings her the power to fight the legions of Hell.

When the time comes, will Prophecy be able to do what's necessary or will the sacrifice she must make be too painful to go through with? Does she have the strength to stop Hell from being unleashed into the world and save the ones she loves at the same time?

The dramatic conclusion to the Prophecy story, Prophecy: Dark Moon Rising is a gripping tale of love and war that will take hold of you, set your heart racing and not let you go until the very last page.

MARKED

by Kristin Cast & P.C. Cast

 

A House of Night novel: Book 1

The House of Night series is set in a world very much like our own, except in 16-year-old Zoey Redbird's world, vampyres have always existed. In this first book in the series, Zoey enters the House of Night, a school where, after having undergone the Change, she will train to become an adult vampire--that is, if she makes it through the Change. Not all of those who are chosen do. It’s tough to begin a new life, away from her parents and friends, and on top of that, Zoey finds she is no average fledgling. She has been Marked as special by the vampyre Goddess, Nyx. But she is not the only fledgling at the House of Night with special powers. When she discovers that the leader of the Dark Daughters, the school's most elite club, is misusing her Goddess-given gifts, Zoey must look deep within herself for the courage to embrace her destiny--with a little help from her new vampyre friends.

CHANGELING
by Yamine Galnorn


Delilah, a changeling with a cattitude...


Meet the D’Artigo Sisters—three half human, half-Faerie, wild and sexy members of the OIA—the Otherworld Intelligence Agency.  Camille, a witch, Delilah, a werecat, and Menolly, an acrobat extraordinaire turned vampire, are sent Earthside to keep them out of trouble by their superiors, who consider the girls nothing but a bunch of bumbling half-breeds.  But the girls soon find themselves smack in the middle of Demon-Central when Shadow Wing, the leader of the Subterranean Realms, decides to attempt a coup on both Earth and Otherworld.

From their home in a seedy suburb of Seattle, the sisters must use every ounce of erratic power they have to thwart the havoc about to unfold. Together with Camille's lust-crazed and not-quite-human boyfriends, an FBH (full-blood-human) detective named Chase Johnson who has a penchant for spicy beef tacos and wild women, a gorgeous hunk of dragon flesh named Smoky, Iris the house sprite, and Maggie--their baby calico gargoyle, they must use all of their collective talents to prevent the demons from taking over as the three sisters attempt to save two worlds, one monster at a time.

UNDEAD AND UNEASY
by MaryJanice Davidson

You are cordially invited to the wedding of Elizabeth Anne Taylor and Eric Sinclair

607 Summit Ave
Midnight
July 4, 2007

RSVP by June 25, and don't be like one of those jerks who doesn't RSVP and then shows up with three people. Seriously.

In the days leading up the The Big Day, Vampire Queen Betsy Taylor seems to have a full house - and the wedding guests have yet to arrive. Along with her human buddies, there's a ghost, a werewolf, and a Fiend crashing at her place. And though her fiance, Vampire King Eric Sinclair, conveniently disappears when the conversation turns to seating charts and flower arrangements, he does manage to make his oh-so-sexy presence known at other moments.

Betsy knows the next few weeks won't be smooth sailing - but she never expects just what's in store for her. Cold feet are no surprise, especially with an undead groom. But when Sinclair truly goes missing - and not just to avoid wedding preparations - along with most of her friends and loved ones, Betsy is frantic. Alone and afraid for the fate of everyone she loves, Betsy can't trust anyone as she trieds to find them and whoever is behind all the disappearances.

MY SISTER IS A WEREWOLF

by Kathy Love

Love Bites: Book 4

The sexy Young brothers may know a fang or two about the art of seduction, but their sister, Elizabeth, is positively mooning over a few issues of her own. BAD MOON RISING

Elizabeth Young's brothers think they have it rough as vampires? Ha! Two words for them: unwanted hair. What werewolf Elizabeth craves is a normal life with a husband, kids, and less shaving. Unfortunately the vaccine she's researched isn't working yet. Worse, she's in heat—and soon every dangerous wolf pack for miles around will be at her door. To buy time, she needs to have sex, and often, with the first human male she can find.

Veterinarian Jensen Adler just meant to drown his sorrows, until a stunning, leather—clad brunette made him an offer he couldn't refuse. Now he's caught up in something really weird, definitely dangerous, and, okay, extremely hot. So his new girlfriend's hiding something (and she's a little freaky about the moon), but Jensen knows true love when he feels it, and this time, he's not giving up. no matter how hairy things get.

The glorious nineteenth-century city of Rome gives rise to a new threat from the Immortal Undead...

Victoria Gardella has been a vampire slayer for just over a year, balancing her life as a peer of Society with the dangerous role that takes her out on moonlit streets, stake in hand.

As Victoria races across Europe to stop what could be the most deadly army the Gardellas have ever faced, she is accompanied by the unlikely Sebastian Vioget, a man as tempting as he is untrustworthy. But when Victoria discovers that she has been betrayed by one of her most trusted allies, the truth will challenge all her powers as a Venator – and as a woman.

BLOOD RED

by Heather Graham

 

When a fortune-teller shows bridesmaid Lauren Crow an omen of her gruesome death, she and her friends laugh it off as cheesy theatrics—until women begin disappearing in the night. Even as the streets become more dangerous, Lauren finds herself lusting after a man who is himself dangerous—and quite possibly crazy. Mark Davidson prowls the city by night armed with crosses and holy water, in search of vampires, whose existence, he insists, is real. He is as irresistibly drawn to Lauren as she is to him, and not only because she's the image of his murdered fiancée. But Mark's frightening obsession with finding his lover's killer merely hides a bitter vendetta that cuts deeper than grief over a lost love.

As Lauren wrestles with desire and disbelief, sinister shadows lengthen over New Orleans, threatening her friends and foretelling a battle that may spell the end of the city's uneasy truce between the living and the undead.

GIDEON

by Jacquelyn Frank

The Nightwalkers: Book 2

They’re called the Nightwalkers—proud, ancient beings who live in the shadows, existing just beyond the human world. But there are also dangerous humans who hunt them—necromancers who use the blackest magic to manipulate them. And for a Demon named Gideon, the battle against these evil forces will soon be all too personal…

AS A HEALER, HE KNOWS HER BODY. BUT IT’S HER HEART HE WANTS.

For a thousand years, Gideon has healed his people. And as the oldest surviving male of his race, his wisdom has always been respected without question. But Gideon knows that even he is vulnerable to the powerful, primitive desires that befall his kind during Hallowed moons—and nine years ago that truth was hammered home when he found himself claiming Magdelegna, the Demon King’s sister, in a wild embrace. Horrified by his lack of control, he left her wanting and furious—and then exiled himself for the better part of a decade. Now, with necromancers threatening his people—and Magdelegna nearly their victim—Gideon must face another truth. He and the beautiful, stubborn Magdelegna are destined to be together, to share a love as deep and old as time itself. But first he needs to regain her trust. Then he’ll have to save her life…

Every night holds secrets.

EVERY DARK DESIRE

by Fiona Zedde

Pleasure without limits. Desire without rules. Love without mercy. Naomi McElroy's life in Jamaica has always been about the comforts of family and home. But secretly, she yearns for something more. When she surrenders to seduction in a jasmine—scented garden under a full moon, her life is changed forever. In that moment of complete ecstasy, Naomi becomes Belle, one of the undead whose carnal hungers are never sated.

Now Belle is part of a vampire clan, lost in an existence that strips away all pretenses and lays bare the deep, dark hungers within every soul. But first she must be taught. Through the feel of skin pressed against skin and the skilled manipulations of a powerful lover, Belle craves desire every waking moment. A part of her hates her new life, but another part revels in it—the savagery of her senses, the sway of her body, and the sensual decadence of her new family. What Belle finally feels is a sexual connection like no other she's experienced.

But in this exciting new world, there are many dangers that are best left untouched—and dangers that are too intoxicating and enticing to resist.
