AWAITING THE MOON

by Donna Lea Simpson
 

It is 1795, well past the time when folks should have abandoned such superstitious notions as a belief in werewolves, Elizabeth Stanwycke thinks as she travels into the heart of Germany to tutor a young countess in the ways of the world, and the English gentry in particular. But Elizabeth has never seen anything like Wolfram Castle, her new home for the time she is to work there, nor has she ever met any man like Count Nikolas von Wolfram, her new student's uncle. Handsome, commanding, enigmatic, he is keeping secrets, but whether they are merely sordid family tragedies of the past that he is concealing, or something more terrifying and sinister is anyone's guess.

All Elizabeth knows is, the more time she spends in Count Nikolas's company, the more she is drawn to him... but she understands only too well the price a woman pays for allowing the urgings of her heart to influence her behavior, and she is determined never to pay that price again.

HIGHLAND MIST

by Donna Grant

 One prophecy to save the world.
Two realms fighting for control.
Three Druid sisters who hold the key to salvation
and the hearts of the men that would love them.

An honorable laird…

Laird Connall MacInness was born to a clan that for centuries has been charged with the guarding of the sacred Druids. 'Tis a duty he has always met with a willing heart, until the day his sister, a Druid priestess, goes missing, and the very Druids he has protected refuse to help him find the last remaining member of his family. Then a 300 year old prophecy places a Druid priestess in his hands for safekeeping. 'Tis the chance at revenge that he's been waiting for, but is he willing to pay the cost his revenge will demand--the loss of his mate and the future of Scotland?

A willing lass…

Glenna MacNeil wants only to be free, to find the purpose of her life. When she is told to look for the dark laird that would free her, she eagerly goes with the powerful laird who fights her clan, not realizing she has set in motion events that will change the course of history.

A TASTE OF DARKNESS

by Nina Bangs

Mackenzie Vampires - Book 3

He'd lived a thousand years for this? Reinn Mackenzie was one ticked-off vampire.

Werewolves—furry pains in the butt. Werecats—sneaky whisker-twitching manipulators. Reinn hated them all. But most of all, he hated his job. Guardian of the Blood. What a crock.

The Mackenzie council, in its infinite stupidity, had ordered him to protect the purity of the clan's bloodline. What purity? They were all just a bunch of bloodsuckers, for crying out loud. Besides, how could he destroy a clan member for mating with someone not on the council's approved list when the very sight of a certain little werecat revved his engine?

Kisa Evans made it impossible for him to think about anything but the dangerous fantasy of freeing his own inner beast. No matter how he fought the desire to feel the soft heat of her throat beneath his lips, the craving only grew. Kisa might be the enemy, but he longed to show her the sensual pleasure to be found in...

TO TAME A WOLF

by Susan Krinard

Her innocence destroyed, young widow Tally Bernard swore that she would never trust a man again. But when her brother disappears, she has little choice but to make a pact with the devil.

Though he wants nothing more than to live a quiet life on a ranch of his own, Simeon Kavanaugh can't escape the legacy of his werewolf father. The animal instincts that keep him from being fully human also make him a brilliant tracker, forced to survive on the desperation of people in need.

The attraction between these two wounded souls is immediate, primal -- and dangerous. And if Simeon has any hope of saving Tally, he must do what he has always resisted and merge both man and beast within him. But if she cannot accept what he becomes, his choice may cost Simeon the only thing worth having -- Tally's love . . .

THE SECOND SEDUCTION

by Shelly Munro

Though the gifts of second sight and a loving heart have made her an extraordinary healer, Rosalind finds her talent has also branded her a misfit and an outcast. When a marriage is arranged for her with the mysterious Viscount Hastings, heir to Castle St. Clare, she embraces what she sees as the last chance for a normal and secure future.

Lucien, Viscount Hastings, back from the dead and safe in the bosom of his family, has no time for the chit his family has arranged for him to marry. There is no room in his life, or his heart, for anything but vengeance for the death of his beloved first wife, Francesca.

Threats echo in every crash of the waves beating upon the cliffs on which Castle St. Clare stands. Whispers linger in the corridors during the still of the night. Malicious eyes track every move made by the spurned bride and her scarred, but handsome would-be husband.

Is there a chance for two lonely hearts?

A dark past collides with the present, bringing together family, truth and . . .

No, there is a new danger, one that threatens England, the whole of Europe and Largo's fiancée, too! The only solution is to see that true love conquers all. Until then, they are all...ENDANGERED BY MAGIC.

TOUCH OF NIGHT

by Susan Spencer Paul

The Seymour family is one of the oldest and most respected families in England. However, what no one knows is that this family is also magically inclined and it's a secret they intend to keep. Niclas Seymour can sense the thoughts and emotions of others. It was only years ago that he became indirectly responsible for his best friend's death when he told him that his wife was cheating on him and he killed himself. And the law of the magical families is that if blood is shed by magic done then the offender is placed under a blood curse. Niclas has not known true sleep in three years and it is slowly driving him mad. He will do anything to lift the curse and finally be free of it. The only way that can happen is if he does a great deed for a member of his best friend's family. Such an opportunity has eluded him thus far. Then a Miss Julia Linley, also from one of the most respected families--and a distant relative of his friend---needs aide in rescuing her aunt from Niclas' uncle. It seems the man is set on marrying her aunt against her wishes. Not a great deed, but Niclas will take up this challenge on her behalf. What he does not expect when he meets Julia is that just her touch alone has the ability to drown out the voices. He craves her soothing touch, not only for the relief it brings, but for the passion she arouses in him. However, as they travel, an old nemesis appears threatening to expose Niclas and the whole magical society throughout England. And if Julia discovers his dark secrets will he lose her forever?

THE RAVENCLIFF BRIDE

by Dawn Thompson

As the coach flew up the Cornish coast, Sara saw the end of her journey:  Ravencliff Manor.  She was now its Baroness.  But what sort of man would rescue her from debtors prison by marriage--sight unseen, by proxy?  Obviously a scoundrel--the same sort of man who kept the draperies drawn and his house in a state of gloomy disrepair.  The same sort of man who let a strange, wolf-like animal roam his grounds as if it were master.  Of course, Sara would have accepted the proposal of the Devil himself to get out of the Fleet, so she was resigned to her fate.  Then she met her husband--hair black as sin and a handsome face, and all her assurance vanished.  What strange curse had befallen Nicholas Walraven, and what secrets did he hide?  What dark fortune had brought her to this place?  For good or ill, she was now...The Ravencliff Bride.

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...

THE DARK ONE

by Ronda Thompson

A PASSION IGNITED
Rosalind Rutherford knows full well the scandal she courts when she attempts to seduce the notorious Armond Wulf—in fact, she's counting on it as a means to escape her sadistic stepbrother's control. Unfortunately, Lord Wulf's better instincts prevail...although not before he gives Rosalind a tantalizing taste of what she's missing. And when the opportunity arises to rescue Armond from a grim fate while changing her own, Rosalind knows she must seize it...

A CURSE UNLEASHED
Armond can no more ignore the Rutherford woman than his ancestor could resist the temptress who cursed the Wulf men with a terrifying transformation that occurs at the appearance of the full moon—and is set in motion by love. Now, to save her reputation and his freedom, Armond must marry Rosalind. But he vows that while they may share the pleasures of the marriage bed, she will never have his heart...

A LOVE EVERLASTING
Yet as strange and mysterious events bring them closer in body and soul, Armond finds it increasingly difficult to keep his feelings for his new wife locked away. Especially when the reality of unquenchable desire—and certain danger— burn stronger than ever by the light of a full moon...

DARK DESIRES

by Eve Silver

Dark Streets

On the streets of Whitechapel, a man steps from the fog-shrouded shadows, looking for company. The women are always happy to take his coin—just before they take his knife…

Dark Secrets

Darcie Finch has come to the East London brothel as a last, desperate choice. Instead, the madam turns Darcie out into the harsh night with new hope—to seek employment from one who owes her a favor, Dr. Damien Cole—as well as a last warning: Have a care. Steer clear of his work and his secrets. He is a man to fear…

Dark Desires

The Cole residence is a strange place, indeed. Servants disappear. Unsavory characters call at odd hours of the night. And Darcie has seen the handsome doctor leave his laboratory splattered with blood. Now, Damien has offered her the chance of a lifetime, using her skills as an artist to work beside him. Long hours together soon ignite an unexpected—and irresistible—passion. But the closer Darcie gets to Damien and his secrets, the more she wonders if he is a dedicated, charming healer…or a cold-blooded killer…

TOUCH OF PASSION

by Susan Spencer Paul

My Dearest Reader,
When you hear my story, perhaps you will think me a man unable to control his own hungers...his own temptations. But I warn you that I am no such thing. I am simply a man who knows what he wants, and what he can't live without. It is only fair to tell you that my clan is one descended from magic. I have learned these powers are both a blessing and a curse—for the magic that flows through my blood controls my fate utterly and completely. When I first saw the beautiful Loris, I knew she was my unoliaeth, my oneness, the woman I am destined to unite with for all eternity. At that moment, I allowed my passion to lead me to do the unthinkable: I employed a forbidden magic to win Loris's heart. How did I know that my error would lead to a black curse that still haunts me today? How could I have known that the curse would irrevocably cast Loris' affection for me to another man? Now I am left to ponder how I might win Loris back—black curse be damned. I believe there must be a way. For while it is the darkest realms of magic that keeps Loris from becoming mine, there is another power at play: the undying, unending love of one man for one woman. And I pray that in the end, that will be enough...
Your obedient servant,
Kian Seymour, Castle Tylluan, London

THE HOUSE ON THE BLUFF

by Elena Dorothy Bowman

The last voice heard from the house was an 18th Century ancestor's blood-curdling screams in the dark of night, but no one ever saw or heard from that person again. What was it about the "house" that made people tremble? Why had no one ventured near it since 1789; why had no one dared? Had it not been there for centuries, standing tall ... empty ... beckoning? Abigail Adams Pierce could not envision that the information she stumbled on would take her on a hair- raising journey she would never forget. A journey that once started would have no turning back, even at the risk of losing her life in the physical sense and being trapped within the spiritual realm, which had invaded the Pierce House. And nothing, in her wildest imagination, could have prepared her for the effect her discovery would have on her life from that moment on. This was her family's legacy - handed down from the 11th Century - to the descendant who dared to enter in spite of its warnings. To the day she entered her ancestral home, with its promise of terror or fulfillment, The House On The Bluff maintained its enchantment and its ageless elegance, standing as a silent sentinel waiting for the one long destined to enter who could shatter its secrets.

Count Marcello Spoleti is intrigued by the female who dares to try and control the vampire. But, he also knows there is more to Tatiana than just a pretty face--much, much more. Forcing her father to give her over to him, lest he tell of his children's crimes, Marcello plans on keeping Tatiana in his complete control. Rating: Contains graphic sexual content, adult language, and violence.
