by Dianne Duvall
Paranormal Romance
[learn_more caption=”Book Description”]In Dianne Duvall’s world of Immortal Guardians, the stakes for mortals are high, but the cost—especially to the heart—might be higher…




It’s not the first time Immortal Guardian Richart d’Alençon has saved a human life from eternal damnation. Usually, he moves on, a nameless savior like a ghost in the night. But this time he can’t seem to forget the woman who rewarded him with a sensuous kiss after he rescued her from a trio of vampires. While Richart knows that loving a human can only bring trouble, the taste of forbidden lust is too great to resist…




Jenna never imagined she’d end up a single mom working overtime to put her son through school. But she might have daydreamed once that a devastatingly gorgeous Frenchman would sweep her off her feet. Now that a package of tall, dark, and handsome seems intent on doing just that, doctors are telling her she may not have long to live. But Richart is telling her just the opposite. All she has to do is abandon her humanity…




Includes a special sneak peek of NIGHT UNBOUND.[/learn_more]

by Angela Addams
Paranormal Romance
[learn_more caption=”Book Description”]Her biggest mistake comes with fangs…and a nose for tracking her down.




Wherever there’s a lying, cheating scumbag who’s broken a woman’s heart, Vengeance Dealer Darcy Wells is there. So what if she isn’t the most skilled witch around? She’s only using one spell, which leaves the hapless male suffering tormenting lust for one woman. Her.




The beautiful part? This curse comes equipped with a blinding agent, allowing her a clean getaway. Unrequited lust, coming right up! As far as Darcy is concerned, it’s justice served. Her next target: Raven Glock, rock band bassist and drop-dead-gorgeous sex god.




When Raven lays eyes on the luscious Darcy, he gives her what he promises all the starry-eyed groupies who toss their panties at him—one unforgettable night in his bed. Sex with Darcy is so epic that he forgets his cardinal rule: to get her out before morning.




At the crack of sunrise, Darcy serves Raven a face full of cursed ash. But something goes horribly wrong…and she finds herself magically tethered to one pissed-off werewolf.




Worse, breaking the spell could cost her everything…maybe even her life.

  1. I’m so far behind on the Kate Daniels series! I NEED TO GET CAUGHT UP!!! I should just do a full series re-read. Kate and Curran are always perfect for that:) I’ve heard such great things about The Winter King as well, it’s now ready and waiting on my Kindle and I’m struggling to actually be productive at work instead of reading it:)
