ETERNAL NIGHTS

by Patti O'Shea

Jarved 9: Book 2

Capt. Kendall Thomas has been plagued by dreams of blood, dreams so horrifying they leave her trembling in the night. Kendall has good reason to be afraid. She's discovered thieves are stealing artifacts from the alien city on Jarved Nine, and the smugglers will do anything to protect their lucrative sideline—even commit murder.

The last man Kendall wanted to endanger was her best friend Wyatt Montgomery, but the stubborn Special Ops captain followed her when she went to gather evidence, and the smugglers trapped them both in the city's ancient pyramid. Now by day, they're chased through labyrinthine tunnels, deeper and deeper into the heart of the temple. But in the cloak of darkness, they can no longer deny the powerful force drawing them together, the passionate dreams that leave them aching with need, the touch of skin on skin that makes them long for—ETERNAL NIGHTS.

RAVYN'S FLIGHT is scheduled to be reissued in Aug. 2006.

SLAVE TO SENSATION

by Nalini Singh

 

In a world that denies emotions, where the ruling Psy punish any sign of desire, Sascha Duncan must conceal the feelings that brand her as flawed. To reveal them would be to sentence herself to the horror of "rehabilitation"—the complete psychic erasure of everything she ever was...

Both human and animal, Lucas Hunter is a Changeling hungry for the very sensations the Psy disdain. After centuries of uneasy coexistence, these two races are now on the verge of war over the brutal murders of several Changeling women. Lucas is determined to find the Psy killer who butchered his packmate, and Sascha is his ticket into their closely guarded society. But he soon discovers that this ice-cold Psy is very capable of passion—and that the animal in him is fascinated by her. Caught between their conflicting worlds, Lucas and Sascha must remain bound to their identities—or sacrifice everything for a taste of darkest temptation...

BORN IN DEATH


by J. D. Robb

Lt. Eve Dallas struggles with the end—and the beginning—of life, in the #1 New York Times-bestselling series set in 2060 New York City.

Eve Dallas has a grisly double homicide to solve when two young lovers—both employees of the same prestigious accounting firm—are brutally killed on the same night. It doesn't leave Eve a lot of leftover time to put together a baby shower for her buddy Mavis, but that's supposedly what friends are for.

Now Mavis needs another favor. Tandy Willowby, one of the moms-to-be in Mavis's birthing class, didn't show up for the shower. A recent emigrant from London, Tandy has few friends in New York, and no family—and she was really looking forward to the party. And when Eve enters Tandy's apartment and finds a gift for Mavis's shower wrapped and ready on the table—and a packed bag for the hospital still on the floor next to it—tingling runs up and down her spine.

Normally, such a case would be turned over to Missing Persons. But Mavis wants no one else on the job but Eve—and Eve can't say no. She'll have to track Tandy down while simultaneously unearthing the deals and double-crosses hidden in the files of some of the city's richest and most secretive citizens, in a race against this particularly vicious killer. Luckily, her multimillionaire husband Roarke's expertise comes in handy with the number crunching. But as he mines the crucial data that will break the case wide open, Eve faces an all too real danger in the world of flesh and blood.

SNARING THE HUNTRESS

by Sylvia Day

Star is an Interstellar Council judge. Her position requires her to pass sentence, hunt down the offenders, and administer punishments. She's considered one of the best, and if she plays her cards right, she just might become the first of the Hunter species to ascend to the Supreme Court-her life's goal. When she's ordered to hunt down a rogue Jacian ambassador in heat, the precedent is death. Sympathetic, but following the law she holds so dear, she pursues him with the intent to kill.

Roark has entered his mating cycle. By Council law, he should be locked in a room with his pre-assigned partner for a week of non-stop sex that will get him through his heat. But he doesn't want his pre-assigned. He wants Star, the luscious blonde judge whose compassion and intelligence has won his regard. The penalty for going rogue while in heat is death, but that's a small price to pay for a week of sensual pleasure with the woman he desires more than anything.

Now the huntress is the prey, and when she's snared by a man in heat, it's passion that rules, not the law. Or does it? Roark still has his sentence, and his lover Star is judge, jury...and executioner.

Her world was filled with what she thought was undying love. Their worlds would collide in the heat of the desert and take them from the depths of despair to the heights of ecstasy.

He is her only reason for living, her other half and her only hope in a world that has become her living tomb. She fears the love he has found with Aradia may mean his destruction or—worse still—bring about his violent death. She prays she can protect him against the needs of his lonely heart and thwart the evil that stalks his every move.

Intrigue and adventure abound in a land where evil is never more than a footstep away. In the shadows of a sinister fortress, uncontrollable passions duel with unnatural hatred and unrelenting revenge as an imprisoned woman fights to save the life and sanity of the Shadowlord.
