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...

COLLIDING FORCES
by Constance O'Day-Flannery
 
Deborah Stark is a newscaster with ambition to spare and a take-no-prisoners attitude when it comes to love. Her latest whirlwind affair with the darkly sexy Marcus ends with D. never expecting to see him again. Then her mother dies right before Thanksgiving and Marcus shows up on the doorstep of D.'s childhood home in New Jersey--and the ice around her heart cracks a little.

But for D., work comes first. She's deep into a story about corruption throughout the highest levels of the company that owns her Philadelphia television station, and not even the hint of true love can distract her. Marcus has secrets--about the mysterious Foundation he works for, about his ability to shape-shift--secrets D. isn't ready to hear. But when D. realizes that Marcus is too aware of what she's investigating to be an innocent bystander, she knows she must accept his truths. For only with Marcus's help will D. survive long enough to expose corruption . . . and claim love.

PRETTY EVIL

by Lexi Davis

Three sexy bachelors with big plans.

Longtime friends Rice, Coach, and Geffen can't believe it when they see an abandoned property just a stone's throw away from Rodeo Drive -- the dilapidated wreck is more haunted house than Hollywood high life. But when they enter the massive estate with their best friend and realtor Sunnie, they see a great financial investment. A fixer-upper with room for a gym and a sauna. A cavernous hall for swanky celebrity parties. A hideaway for seducing the ladies...in other words, a place to live large and dream big.

A foxy she-devil out for revenge.

But Sunnie senses all is not right with the house. Turns out it is already occupied by a supernatural vixen who resents the intruders and vows to use her shape-shifting powers to dispatch them -- not with violence but with an equally lethal weapon: sex. Morphing into each man's fantasy lover, she takes them one by one to heights of ecstasy designed to torment their souls. Only Sunnie, armed with an extrasensory gift and some very powerful prayers, can take on this devilishly gorgeous demon -- even if she has to pay the ultimate price.

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.

THE SMOKE THIEF

by Shana Abe

For centuries they've lived in secret among northern England's green and misted hills. Creatures of extraordinary beauty, power, and sensuality, they possess the ability to shape-shift from human to dragon and back again. Now their secret--and their survival--is threatened by a temptation that will break every boundary.... Dubbed the Smoke Thief, a daring jewel thief is confounding the London police. His wealthy victims claim the master burglar can walk through walls and vanish into thin air. But Christoff, the charismatic Marquess of Langford, knows the truth: the thief is no ordinary human but a "runner" who's fled Darkfrith without permission. As Alpha leader of the draŽkon, it's Kit's duty to capture the fugitive before the secrets of the tribe are revealed to mortals. But not even Kit suspects that the Smoke Thief could be a woman. Clarissa Rue Hawthorne knew her dangerous exploits would attract the attention of the draŽkon. But she didn't expect Christoff himself to come to London, dangling the tribe's most valuable jewel--the Langford Diamond--as bait. For as long as she could remember, Rue had lived the life of a halfling--half draŽkon, half mortal--and an outcast in both worlds. She'd always loved the handsome and willful Kit from the only place it was safe: from afar. But now she was no longer the shy, timid girl she'd once been. She was the first woman capable of making the Turn in four generations. So why did she still feel the same dizzying sense of vulnerability whenever he was near? From the moment he saw her, Kit knew that the alluring and powerful beauty was every bit his Alpha equal and destined to be his bride. And by the harsh laws of the draŽkon, Rue knew that she was the property of the marquess. But they will risk banishment and worse for a chance at something greater. For now Rue is his prisoner, the diamond has disappeared, and she's made the kind of dangerous proposition a man like Kit cannot resist....In this bewitching novel, Shana Abé transports us into a world of exhilarating romance and magic.

MOON'S WEB

by C.T. Adams & Cathy Clamp

Tony Giodone made his living as an assassin—until one of his marks ripped his throat out and turned him into a werewolf. Now he's the best hired killer there is.

When a curvy woman in an expensive suit tries to hire him to kill her, his wolf senses insist that she is his mate. One kidnapping, a plethora of gunfights, a psychic coma, and two faked deaths later, Tony and Sue have new identities and are hiding in a community of Sazi shapeshifters. All seems well, until Sue begins to pull away from Tony and he realizes that if he can't be more open with her, he's going to lose her.

To add to his problems, Tony is getting flashes of other peoples' lives. He doesn't know if they're memories or fantasies—but he wants it to stop, because he's learning things he shouldn't about his friends and neighbors.

What's more dangerous than a psychic-powered werewolf assassin? Whatever it is, it's kidnapping and killing female Sazi . . . after it sucks out their powers. Its latest captive is the girlfriend of Carmine, the Mafia don who used to be Tony's boss. To get her back, Carmine will make war on all the Sazi—and while the Sazi would win, they can't afford to be exposed to humans. Now it's up to Tony to save Carmine's girlfriend—and all of the Sazi.

He could really use the help of Bobby, the python member of Wolven, but Bobby is a bit preoccupied. It seems that Chicago's pack enforcer, Asri Kho, a deadly Komodo Dragon on the full moon, makes his knees weak. That is, whenever she's not trying to kill him.

CHALLENGED

by Lorie O'Clare

Stone McAllister will not settle down. No lady will tame him. He's happy that his littermates have found good women, set up happy dens, and enjoy the calm life of mated werewolves. That life just isn't for him.

Even after meeting Ali Bastien, an aggressive young thing anxious to learn everything at once, Stone forces all thoughts of settling down out of his head. Some werewolves are simply meant to prowl the night, take on any lady who comes their way. And that is the life Stone will hang onto—with teeth and claws if necessary.

When Ali starts announcing to her pack and her family that Stone McAllister is the werewolf for her, Stone knows it's time to leave. Something won't let him though. And to make matters worse, when another werewolf starts sniffing around Ali, Stone finds himself ready to fight for her—a fight to the death, a fight for the right to call Ali his—for life.

PLEASURE CRUISE

by Michelle M. Pillow & Mandy M. Roth

 

Clare needs to loosen up and have some fun—not to mention some hot sex with someone other than herself. Her best friend, Kira, knows exactly what she needs—a vacation full of hunky single men who'll knock her panties off. When she booked the cruise for Clare's birthday, the travel agent left out one tiny detail. It's a supernatural cruise, and they aren't getting off until they're married.

The powers that be are tired of waiting for the supernatural to find their own mates and reproduce. In a desperate act to get the dwindling population back up, they've decided to take matters into their own hands. Dominik, a lycan, and Braden, a vampire, are just the two perfect candidates to start this experiment. They're sexy, in the prime of their reproductive immortal lives and ready to mate—just as soon as they can seduce their unsuspecting brides, or at the very least, keep them from swimming back to shore.

MOON ILLUSION

by Amy O'Connor

 

Dating the local realtor was bad enough -- but dating a werewolf...?

Nate Moore's business card may as well have read, "Randy Werewolf: Out for a Good Time." Then he met Gina, a self- confessed, quietly boring woman. He didn't have any choice; destiny was involved.

So it was simple -- all he had to do was convince her he really did understand the definition of 'commitment', save her from her scheming stepfather, sweet talk her into his bed, and... oh yeah... explain about how he was a werewolf, and she was more than just a tasty midnight snack. Easy!

Immortal Ops 2: CRITICAL INTELLIGENCE

by Mandy M. Roth

Missy Carter leads a boring, overworked life as a system analyst for the State Department or rather, that's what she lets everyone believe. In reality, her life is anything but boring. As an agent with the Paranormal Security and Intelligence, she's seen and done it all. Intelligence is her specialty, assassination is her hobby. The only problem is that the things she spies on don't die easily. She's learned to handle anything life can throw at her. That is until the biggest paramilitary pain in her ass shows up … again. Lucky for him, he's sexy.

Roi Majors, second in command of the I-Ops, is having a hard time believing that Intel can only get half the information needed to bring down an underground ring of vampires who are hell bent on creating a race of supernaturals with multiple strands of DNA. As the team looks for answers, Roi searches for sexual release. When he's paired with the one woman in the world who seems immune to his self-proclaimed charms, he can't wait to see her to safety and bid her good riddance. He never counted on falling in love with her. And he sure as hell never counted on her claiming to be an agent with a branch of the government no human should know about.

DARK MOON

by Lori Handeland

When dusk falls, nightmares become reality...

Dr. Elise Hanover quite literally lives for her job—since quitting would mean meeting a silver bullet with her name on it. She works alone, struggling to unlock the mysteries of an affliction that should only exist in nightmares. But Elise knows from personal experience just how real it is. Because the first time its deadly power pulsed through her veins was the last time she saw the love of her life. Until now...

and forbidden passion is unleashed...

The surprise visit from FBI agent Nic Franklin is merely the first in a series of shocks. After her lab is firebombed and her most bloodthirsty test subject escapes, Elise and Nic have no choice but to join forces. Unfortunately, the situation in remote Fairhaven, Wisconsin is far from safe: Nic has too many questions about Elise's work and why she deserted him years ago; townsfolk are disappearing, and Elise feels her own condition intensifying in ways as terrifying and exhilarating as her rekindled attraction to Nic. Now, as a shadowy evil closes in, it's becoming all too clear that Elise is the only one who can stop it—if it doesn't stop her first...

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.

DRAGONSWAN

by Sherrilyn Kenyon

Originally published in the anthology, TAPESTRY, 09/02.

Dr. Channon MacRae wanted to unravel the mystery of the Dragon Tapestry. What she never expected to uncover was an entire society that is older than time. A secret society that has existed as part of the world and yet apart from it.

Sebastian Kattalakis has come forward in time to reclaim the tapestry he sold years before. The last thing he expects is to find a woman whose intellect and charm captures his animal attention. But he is a man on the run, outcast and ostracized, he can offer her nothing except a heart that was broken by circumstances four hundred years ago.

Channon doesn't see the outcast. She sees only a man who is noble and brave.

But will the kiss of the dragon free her or will it bind her to his side forever?

Winner of P.E.A.R.L. 2002 ~ Best Short Story

Lucky Lilac never has to choose between man and beast!

MINE TO TAKE

by Dara Joy

 

In a galaxy far, far away, beautiful Jenise will do anything to escape marriage to her late stepfather's evil brother, Karpon. When she discovers that Karpon has captured a powerful shapechanger, Gian Ren, she decides to make him an offer he can't refuse. Gian Ren has been drugged, stripped, and chained to a wall. Despite his circumstances, Jenise is wary, for even chained the shapechanger is formidable. Surprisingly, he accepts her unusual request that he deflower her in exchange for her aid in escaping. Gian passionately accomplishes his part of the bargain and within moments, the two set off on a perilous journey, fleeing from Karpon and his soldiers. Mine to Take has action, adventure, and enough steamy sensuality to light up the night sky. H-O-T!
