Book Description

Annalise Fallston made peace with postponing her big-city dreams to care for her ill father, but lately she’s been filled with a restlessness not even her beloved painting dispels. Worse, the colors don’t speak to her as they always have, and all her efforts produce dark, foreboding images of a dangerous man and a terrifying future.

Devlin Eston, black-souled son of the evil Anemoi Eurus, is the only one who can thwart his father’s plan to overthrow the Supreme God of Wind and Storms. But first, Dev must master the unstable powers he’s been given. Distrusted and shunned by his own divine family, he never expected to find kindness and passion in the arms of a mortal.

But Devlin’s love puts Annalise in the path of a catastrophic storm, and in the final Armageddon showdown between the Anemoi and Eurus, sacrifices will be made, hearts broken, and lives changed forever…or lost.

Book Description

Secrets in the Shadows is the second installment in acclaimed author Jenna Black’s Guardians of the Night paranormal romance series.

Jules Gerard has always thought the vampire who betrayed and turned him was dead. But when he discovers that Ian Squires may still be alive and killing in Baltimore, Jules’s long-dormant thirst for vengeance is reawakened.

After Hannah Moore’s fateful encounter with the Broad Street Banger, the petite PI has vowed to keep as far away from the Guardians of the Night as possible. But when her best friend and former business partner asks her to help save Jules from himself, Hannah reluctantly agrees to track Jules down and convince him to return to the Guardians.

Jules doesn’t want help from anybody, much less a stubborn, bossy mortal who doesn’t seem to realize how much danger they’re really in. Unfortunately, he soon discovers that Ian is far too powerful to take on alone.

Caught in a deadly game that quickly spirals beyond his control, Jules must choose: Vengeance or love? Damnation or redemption?
