Dream Breakers, Oath Takers
Jacqueline Jayne
Zane Gideon is determined to comb all of Hell’s Rings, if he must, to find Wilder Swift. Unfortunately, his employer the Hell Runners Society instituted a lockdown on every Soul Saver and all seven of Hell’s Gates.
For more than a hundred years, gifted humans of the uber-elite, ultra-secret Society pledged their lives to rescue lost souls from the First Ring of Hell. But an accident during a covert mission to the Ninth Ring opened a secret door linking Hell to Heaven. Zane witnessed as all the lost souls escaped damnation in one fell swoop, turning the First Ring into an empty, white void. In the process, he lost track of Swift, now MIA for more than two months.
The Society is forced into a risky choice—rescue repentant souls from deeper rings or close its doors. Forever—without finding Swift.
Zane always believed the repentant deserved to be rescued as much as the lost and campaigns for the Society to raise the bar. All he needs to sway the council are two things. One—his guns that shoot holy water filled bullets. And two—an oracle that can locate the repentant with visions.
But the oracles lost their visions with the closing of the First Ring.
All except one—the cold beauty Zane is hoping to defrost between his sheets.
Protected from the Society by her grandmother, Delphine Claudel never knew her horrific nightmares were actual visions. Her grandmother relents her hold and reveals the truth to Delphine about her gift of sight. With Zane’s help, she asks Delphine to join the Society. Though the cowboy is handsome and persuasive, Delphine declines. The visions drove her mother insane and she refuses the same fate.
But Zane doesn’t accept her refusal.
Neither does a council member with his own agenda.
To protect Delphine from drug-induced visions, Zane invites her to his Montana home. There he offers her a deal—she helps him find Swift then her gift will be removed.
She agrees but being sequestered with the cowboy is dangerous. His intellect more than his rugged sex appeal, incite changes in the way she approaches life choices. And the way she views this duty-bound man. She succumbs to his passionate kisses, and for the first time, she falls in love.
Located by the Council, they are forced to run and wind up confronting the very demon that destroyed Delphine’s mother. Confident in her abilities, Delphine strikes a deal with a demon only to be pitted against the man that stole her heart.
If Zane can manipulate the Lord of the Ninth Ring to withdraw the demon possessing Delphine, he can save her life.
But he might have to sacrifice his life and the future of Hell Runners to do it.
The Vampire's Mail Order Bride
Kristen Painter 
Welcome to Nocturne Falls, the town that celebrates Halloween 365 days a year.

The tourists think it's all a show: the vampires, the werewolves, the witches, the occasional gargoyle flying through the sky. But the supernaturals populating the town know better.

Living in Nocturne Falls means being yourself. Fangs, fur, and all.

After seeing her maybe-mobster boss murder a guy, Delaney James assumes a new identity and pretends to be a mail order bride. She finds her groom-to-be living in a town that celebrates Halloween every day. Weird. But not as weird as what she doesn’t know. Her groom-to-be is a 400-year-old vampire.

Hugh Ellingham has only agreed to the arranged set up to make his overbearing grandmother happy. In thirty days, whatever bridezilla shows up at his door will be escorted right back out. His past means love is no longer an option. Not if the woman’s going to have a future. Except he never counted on Delaney and falling in love for real.

Too bad both of them are keeping some mighty big secrets…
