Descended from Dragons
by Tricia Owens


Reg. Price: 2.99

Beneath the glitz and glamour of Las Vegas lies another city. A secret city in plain sight, full of warlocks and demons, shape-shifters and golems. A city that feeds off the chance magick that is generated by gamblers and which is ruled by mysterious beings called the Oddsmakers.

It is in this strange underbelly of the occult that Anne Moody runs a cursed pawn shop for the desperate, the curious, and the magickally inclined. Though the job is boring, it keeps her under the radar. None of her customers have any inkling that she is a dragon sorceress with a power that's been feared throughout history. However dragons are no help when a stone statue ends up in her shop that is more than it appears. The statue is a gargoyle named Vale, who is shrouded in mystery and secrets. When she learns that Vale is possessed, and that the person responsible for cursing him plans to take over Las Vegas with a horde of demons from Hell, Anne realizes it is up to her to defy the Oddsmakers and save the city, and possibly the world.

I, Vladimir

by Daniel Kaye


My memory is different from yours. Over time you lose sight of people and places, dates are like the frayed edges of a painting that you will never see again. The faces and events still haunt me as if they happened yesterday. I remember every life I have taken for almost two thousand years.
For a long time, with our numbers growing, we had known safety. Throughout history, there had always been stories about us. Many believed them to be old wives’ tales. Never once did I believe our numbers could lead to our downfall.
I have lived many lives and in all of that time, this was to become my darkest moment. The year was 1941 and war raged across Europe. Humans now traveled great distances to wage war on one another. The latest conflict had taken on a new face, a face of evil. One man had taken a sign of peace and placed it on a blood-red colored flag, which his troops followed into battle. Like locusts, they consumed everything in their path and invaded far off lands with little resistance.
As the war spread further, our clans divided into smaller groups to evade capture. We were forced farther east into colder, more hostile territory. Safe hiding places to sleep had become harder to find. I knew the day would come when we would be trapped, but never in my wildest dreams would have imagined it happening as it did.

Dragon's Heat

by Crystal L. Shaw


She’s never bowed to anyone, but he’s determined to have her on her knees.

Kara Hart has lusted over Drago Arrington, a ripped and powerful dragon shifter, since he first looked down on her from his throne. With a war brewing, she chose to battle against his kind. That meant staying away from the one man dominating her every desire – even though it’s left her completely at his mercy. When Drago has a chance to have this strong-willed spitfire’s complete submission, he makes her a deal she can’t refuse. Kara caves to the dark temptation warring within her and attempts to play a role she’s never dared to fantasize before.

Little does she know this contract is very much one sided. Drago needs an heir and he’s convinced Kara will give him exactly what he craves. It only takes one taste for him to realize she’s the greatest treasure he’s ever owned; he’s not letting her go.

When the sparks kindling between them ignites to flames, will Kara realize she’s playing with fire? Or will her struggle only end with her being the one to get burned?
