Cursed by Night
Jasmine Walt & Emma Stark
My name is Ace Bissett, and I'm a paranormal detective who doesn't believe in magic.
Or at least, I didn't before I met them.
The day I inherited my aunt's old house, everything changed. One moment, I was convinced that magic was a hoax. The next, I'm surrounded by four winged, fanged, ridiculously hot guys who are definitely nothuman, and who insist that I'm the only one who can break the curse that binds them to the night.
I know I should run far, far away from this hot mess, but there's a connection between us I can't deny. I'm seeing things I can't explain, feeling things that don't make sense. The detective in me has never been able to resist a mystery, and this one is just begging me to dig in.
But all that will have to wait, because there's a new threat stalking my city. One with a taste for blood and bone, unable to be killed or captured by normal human means.
It's a good thing I've got four new roommates to help me hunt them down. But even if I didn't, I'd figure out a way. Because I never give up. I never give in. And I always protect what's mine.
Chromium, the last unmated dragon guard and former royal bodyguard of the Drakkaris court, has a secret. He’s been sneaking out at night to serve vigilante justice and taste new things in the human world. When he runs across a curvy restaurant owner with a sweet personality and a lasagna to die for, he knows he has found his mate. Now he just has to stay in her world long enough to protect her from those who want to hurt her.
Helen hasn’t had a lot of easy breaks in life, but she works hard to help anyone she can. When a mysterious, hot customer stops her restaurant from being robbed, she’s happy to offer him a place to stay, even if she doesn’t know anything about him. Well, except that he’s tall, with Caribbean blue eyes and a warrior’s bearing, and seems utterly intent on winning her heart.
As Chromium fights to keep his secret from his friends, he is realizing more and more that he can’t bear even a moment away from Helen’s side. All he wants to do is pleasure her, love her, and show her who she belongs to. But Helen has secrets as well, and a past that may just be coming back to hurt her, if Chromium doesn’t watch out.
The King of Hearts 1
Cassie’s had a rough few months. Being a vampire came with its own risks. Being a con-artist vampire was even tougher. Being forced to fake one’s own death to keep from getting thrown in the slammer or murdered and then resurrecting oneself? Really takes a lot out of a girl. Frankly, she could use a little down time. But, true to form, she’s skipped that and opted to jump straight from the frying pan into the fire as a new recruit-in-training for the Old Guard. They think she’s got the skillset to help them ferret out some troublemaking vampires in the Undercity, and she’s just interested enough to agree.
But when she struggles with the whole “obedience” portion of her training and decides to make a break for it, she’s suddenly thrust into the center of a centuries’ old battle for power. A battle that will pit the world’s strongest, most revered vampires against one another…and Cassie herself.
And then there's Ryder. Tough, strong, amazing Ryder, who will accept nothing less than everything. It's going to be a bumpy ride.
City of Blaze
Epic Fantasy. Magic. Love.
The city is failing and no one else can see it. Its soldiers exploit the castle's servants, confident that deadly wielders have been exterminated; wars are fought to encourage otherwise absent mortality; countless people suffer from the terrible pangs of nalka, the hunger for intimacy; and all the while its king concerns himself with choosing which of his disappointing concubines to execute next.
The duty falls upon the king's son, Kahr Morghiad of House Sete'an, to restore the city's strength and the army's purpose. In his attempts to right these wrongs, he uncovers darker horrors and encounters a woman with forbidden powers – a woman who could be his greatest ally or his greatest threat.
