Passion’s Potion
Anise Rae
Not all treasures can be locked away…

Thea Redding has finally overcome the scandal dogging her life. Her new potions shop is a success. Life is perfect. Until a handsome dragon-rider mage accuses her of poisoning his sister…Thea’s ex-best friend, the woman who ruined her reputation years ago.

But Thea was never interested in revenge. Or poisons. Or dragon-riders. They’re a paranoid bunch, intent on protecting their infamous treasures. Woe to those who get swooped up by one.

Nothing will stop Marcus Tavis from getting an antidote for the poison that’s destroying his sister. He thought he’d captured the culprit. But Thea is not what he expected. In fact, she may be his only hope for curing his sister. Too bad they got off on the wrong foot. Fortunately, dragon-riders are born to charm. It’s one way his type has procured their treasures for millennia, and Thea may be his greatest treasure ever. But she’s in danger. Someone is blackmailing her to conjure an impossible potion. She needs Marcus’s protection. Can he charm her into trusting him…and taking a chance on love?

 For the Blood
Debbie Cassidy
Stay alive at all costs. No attachments, no looking back, no emotion.

The last thing my father gave me was a key. No explanation, no details, just a key. The last thing he asked of me was to take the key to a set of co-ordinates. But survival in a fallen world filled with Feral isn’t easy. The Fangs and the Claws, once upstanding members of society are now slave to the virus, hunting indiscriminately under a perpetually full moon.

There is no hope. There is no haven. Not alone. Not until them.

They are a new breed of monster—beasts of both fang and fur. Unaffected by the sickness, they crave only one thing, and it runs through my veins. Survive, my father said. Look out for no one except yourself. But sometimes the only way to survive is to make attachments. Sometimes the only way to live is to accept a dance with death. And right now, for me, the path to survival is in the blood.
Here’s to hoping it doesn’t kill me.
