Paranormal Romance:

Moonlight (Moon #1)
by Lisa Kessler
Paranormal Romance
[learn_more caption=”Book Description”]Rancher Adam Sloan is more than meets the eye. As the heir to his Pack, the sexy werewolf’s biggest challenge is keeping his kin’s true nature under wraps. But a group of jaguar shifters threatens to reveal the pack, blasting into town killing humans in plain sight. And when he smells one at the local diner, his standing orders are to take her out.




Lana Turpin doesn’t realize she’s a moving target. Raised in the foster system, she only knows that she blacks out during the new moon and wakes up without remembering a thing. But now she’s being tracked by some strange organization that wants her back–even though she’s never stepped foot inside their compound. And the stranger across the diner is watching her like an enemy.




It should be a simple mission for Adam, but when he touches the frustratingly beautiful Lana, his inner wolf howls…mate. Now, the two must find and stop the people who hunt her…and Adam must keep his own family from killing the only woman he will ever love.[/learn_more]



Urban Fantasy:

Mist (Mist #1)
by Susan Krinard
Urban Fantasy
[learn_more caption=”Book Description”]New York Times bestselling author SUSAN KRINARD launches her first urban fantasy series with MIST.




Mist lives a normal life. She has a normal job, a normal boyfriend, and a normal apartment in San Francisco. She never thinks about her past if she can help it.




She survived. That’s the end of it.




But then a snowy winter descends upon San Francisco. In June. And in quick succession, Mist is attacked by a frost giant in a public park and runs into an elf disguised as a homeless person on the streets…and then the man Mist believed was her mortal boyfriend reveals himself to be the trickster god, Loki, alive and well after all these years.




Mist’s normal world is falling apart. But thankfully, Mist isn’t quite so normal herself. She’s a Valkyrie, and she’s going to need all her skill to thwart Loki’s schemes and save modern Earth from the ravages of a battle of the gods.[/learn_more]



Young Adult:

Replica (Replica Trilogy #1)
by Jenna Black
Young Adult
[learn_more caption=”Book Description”]REPLICA is the breathtaking new SF novel from JENNA BLACK, author of the Faeriewalker series.
Sixteen-year-old Nadia Lake’s marriage has been arranged with the most powerful family in the Corporate States. She lives a life of privilege even if she has to put up with paparazzi tracking her every move, every detail of her private life tabloid fodder. But her future is assured, as long as she can maintain her flawless public image—no easy feat when your betrothed is a notorious playboy.




Nathaniel Hayes is the heir to the company that pioneered human replication: a technology that every state and every country in the world would kill to have. Except he’s more interested in sneaking around the seedy underbelly of the state formerly known as New York than he is in learning to run his future company or courting his bride-to-be. She’s not exactly his type…not that he can tell anyone that.




But then Nate turns up dead, and Nadia was the last person to see him alive.




When the new Nate wakes up in the replication tanks, he knows he must have died, but with a memory that only reaches to his last memory back-up, he doesn’t know what—or rather, who—killed him.




Together, Nadia and Nate must discover what really happened without revealing the secrets that those who run their world would kill to protect.[/learn_more]

In London at the turn of the century, Magnus finds old friends, and meets a very surprising young man…the sixteen-year-old James Herondale.




This standalone e-only short story illuminates the life of the enigmatic Magnus Bane, whose alluring personality populates the pages of the #1 New York Times bestselling series The Mortal Instruments and The Infernal Devices.

Belladonna
(Secrets of the Eternal Rose #2)

[learn_more caption=”Book Description”]In Renaissance Italy, love, lust, intrigue and secret societies converge to stunning results!




In the second in the stunning Secrets of the Eternal Rose series, Cassandra Caravello is trying to forget Falco, the wild artist who ran off with her heart, as she grows closer to her strong, steady fiancé, Luca. But Luca seems to have his own secrets. When he’s arrested by soldiers in the middle of the night, Cass’s life is once again thrown into chaos. She must save Luca, and that means finding the Book of the Eternal Rose—the only evidence that will prove he’s innocent.




So begins her journey to Florence, a city haunted by whispers of vampirism, secret soirees and clandestine meetings of the Order of the Eternal Rose. And home to Falco, who is working for the Order’s eerily stunning leader, the Belladonna herself.




Can Cass trust her heart to lead her to the truth this time?
Nothing is as it seems in this seductive thriller, where the truth may be the deadliest poison of all.




Another sensual edge-of-your-seat romance thriller that’s just as alluring Venom. This historical romantic mystery is perfect for fans of Philippa Gregory’s The Other Boleyn Girl, Anna Godbersen’s The Luxe, Libba Bray’s A Great and Terrible Beauty and Cecily Von Ziegesar’s Gossip Girl.[/learn_more]
