“A broken vampire and a driven doctor, seized by a passion neither can afford.”

Dr. Alexis Byornsson has her hands full in the ER when her patient s uncle blows into the exam room. Stitching up a five-year-old s cut is hard enough without a blond god distracting her all to hell.

To say she s furious is putting it mildly not that anyone would notice. Not with the legendary control that s earned her the nickname Dr. Frozen .

Luke Steel never knew a woman chastising him could be so sexy. But for the first time in three hundred years, passion stirs in his gut along with panic. Since his wife was taken before his eyes in a brutal attack, he s sworn he d never feel that powerless again.

Almost before either Luke or Alexis realize what s happening, they re sharing a blazing kiss that shatters her logical armor and unleashes his wholly unwanted mating instinct. And spurs a closer-than-skin enemy to put into motion a devastating plan for revenge.

“Warning: This book contains a hot doctor and a hotter vampire messing up sterile surfaces. The usual rogue shenanigans, but this time covering deeper motives. Hang on to your stethoscopes at what s revealed!””

Assassins Bite by Mary Hughes
Series: Biting Love (# 8)
Release Date: November 3, 2015
Publisher: Samhain Publishing
Pages: 314
Source: book provided by the publisher for review

 

 

Only her light can burn away his shadows.

On her first night as a police officer, Sunny Ruffles takes down three felons…only to be attacked by a gang of vampires who are a whole new level of hurt. Then a mysterious shadow man intervenes, saving Sunny before he disappears. She runs after him, telling herself her pursuit has nothing to do with his sharp, stubbled jaw, his powerful shoulders, or his sexy-as-hell, kissable lips.

Rescuing the humans makes Aiden Blackthorne late for a critical meeting with the vampire Nosferatu’s daughter. Yet clompy, bumbling Sunny draws him back like wild honey. He kisses her, and he’s almost got her down to her underwear when a bomb meant for him explodes. The last thing Aiden wants is to drag Sunny into his hellish conflict with Nosferatu. But Aiden’s a loner whose only friend has mysteriously disappeared, and the woman who smells and tastes like his mate is the only backup he has left. He’ll need her, everything he is, everything he was-and everything he might have been-to defeat his evil master and claim the love he never dared hope to have.

Warning: This book contains shadowy assassins shooping off vampire heads, cops bumbling in at the worst of times and opposites attracting, colliding, and exploding in lust-a.k.a., explicit fighting, humor, and sex.

Darker Edge of Desire: Gothic Tales of Romance edited by Mitzi Szereto
Release Date: December 2, 2014
Publisher: Tempted Romance
Pages: 235
Source: Book provided by the publisher for review

 

 

Love, passion and sex . . . it’s all here in Darker Edge of Desire. Gothic literature has always possessed a dark attraction ripe with the promise of the forbidden and the sensual. In Darker Edge of Desire, Mitzi Szereto takes the sexualized Gothic and ratchets it up a few notches into the danger zone, opening a door into the darker side of lust and love that only the courageous dare to venture through. Venturing even farther into the world of mystery and romance than she did in the critically acclaimed Red Velvet and Absinthe, Szereto creates an atmosphere with a distinct Gothic flavor where we explore our more forbidden desires. In these tales, love and lust (and kink!) know no boundaries, and all nature of beings —vampires, werewolves, shape shifters, ghosts, and succubae — abound. Tread carefully, danger and desire lie ahead!

Dark Pursuit by Bronwyn Green, Jessica Jarman, Kris Norris, Paige Prince

Publisher: Amazon Digital Services, Inc

Rising Blood by Bronwyn Green
Vampire hunter, Harper Yovanoff, is not happy. She’s been assigned a new partner—one who’s an utter pain in her ass. Elliot Zielin is gorgeous, but he’s also reckless and insufferably arrogant. If he’s not careful, the vampires will be the least of his worries.

Elliot knows he should play nice with his new partner but can’t resist poking the bear—the tiny, angry bear who’s so freaking beautiful, she makes him ache for things he shouldn’t. Despite the fact that Harper has a stake with his name on it, he keeps pushing.

When a powerful vampire begins stalking hunters, Harper and Elliot are forced to work even more closely together. With tempers and adrenaline high, letting off a little steam goes way too far, and they end up in a place they never expected. Fighting their growing feelings becomes impossible, but if they can’t stop the sire hell-bent on their destruction, all the love in the world won’t save them from becoming the very thing they hunt.

Tempted to Death by Jessica Jarman
Months ago, Tara Wilcox ran away from Luca Castell and Oliver Gordon. She’d fallen hard for the pair of hunters, fearing their growing feelings and the possibility they’d find out that she is one of the things they hunt.

Luca and Oliver are partners, in every sense of the word, and spend their lives running toward danger. Falling for Tara was the biggest risk they’d ever taken, and her vanishing had gutted them.

But, she’s back, desperate for their help. Reigniting their love is simple. But nothing is simple when, faced with an impossible choice, Tara reveals the truth.

Now that Luca and Oliver know, Tara has another choice to make—run again or trust that they’ll look beyond the monster she fears they’ll see.

Content Warning: Tempted to Death is an MMF ménage and contains depictions of MM intimacy and sex.

Grave Measures by Kris Norris
Not all souls go quietly.

After the brutal murder of his girlfriend, Daniel Cartwright had thought banishing her spirit would bring him peace—allow him to move on. Until her ghost returns. She wants Daniel to join her…and she’s not taking no for an answer.

Arrynn Baker has watched Daniel flourish into one of Threshold’s best hunters. And is proud to be his partner. There’s just one small issue… She’s fallen for the man. Hard. While she’s not opposed to taking him as a lover, she’s not convinced he feels the same.

When a grisly new killing rocks both their worlds, lines get crossed, and Daniel knows he’s got a choice to make. Either be content with one night with Arrynn, or man up and jump in. But, if he wants a future with the woman of his dreams, he needs to deal with his past, once and for all. Even if the solution takes grave measures.

Next Lifetime by Paige Prince
Born a witch, Sarah keeps her gift and her love of William, a lowly farmhand a closely guarded secret. Their plans for a life together come to a grisly end when one of the world’s most feared and evil vampires finds out about her power and decides to take it.

A hundred years later, William has been reborn as Lucas Dagan, a powerful vampire hunter, with no memory of his past. But, Sarah, now known as Caitlin, remembers. Worse, she’s now the very thing Lucas has sworn to exterminate. Any chance they might have had at happiness has been crushed.

Duty and passion collide when Caitlin and Lucas are forced to fight together to save the world. But will determination and remembered love be enough? Because if evil has its way, there won’t be a Next Lifetime for anyone.

Otter Chaos by P.D Singer
Release Date: October 9, 2015
Publisher: Rocky Ridge Books
Pages: 235
Source: book provided by the author for review

 

 

Lon Ewing snowboarded in and turned economist Corey Levigne’s life upside down, introducing him to a world he didn’t know existed. Corey’s still adjusting to a boyfriend who shifts into an otter and raids the koi pond—and now Lon says Corey’s department chair is a werewolf?

Wolves at the university, wolves in the bank—across Lon’s desk sits Professor Melvin Vadas and his hench-wolves, demanding a construction loan for the pack’s new lodge in the mountains. There’s just one little problem: the proposed building site is home to a breeding population of rare fish.

What do wolves care for stupid human rules, an otter who’d barely make a good snack, or one pesky human determined to protect the environment? Once they’re snout to snout with Corey and Lon, there’s more than silverscale dace on the Endangered Species List.

Includes Tail Slide, the short story that launched Otter Chaos.

Fresh powder snow and running water in the Colorado back country call Lon like the moon calls the wolves. Belly-sliding to a good time on the weekends makes up for a workweek at a desk, and meeting Corey adds a whole new level of fun to snowboarding.

It’s easy to slip away for time alone in the woods without raising suspicion, but how’s Lon to entertain himself when bad snow and a worse spill force them off the mountain too early?

Never give an otter a box of Cheerios.

To celebrate the rise of their new queen, three goddesses of the moon created three stars, one of fire, one of ice, one of water. But then they fell from the sky, putting the fate of all worlds in danger. And now three women and three men join forces to pick up the pieces…

Sasha Riggs is a reclusive artist, haunted by dreams and nightmares that she turns into extraordinary paintings. Her visions lead her to the Greek island of Corfu, where five others have been lured to seek the fire star. Sasha recognizes them, because she has drawn them: a magician, an archaeologist, a wanderer, a fighter, a loner. All on a quest. All with secrets.

Sasha is the one who holds them together—the seer. And in the magician, Bran Killian, she sees a man of immense power and compassion. As Sasha struggles with her rare ability, Bran is there to support her, challenge her, and believe in her.

But Sasha and Bran are just two of the six. And they all must all work together as a team to find the fire star in a cradle of land beneath the sea. Over their every attempt at trust, unity, and love, a dark threat looms. And it seeks to corrupt everything that stands in its way of possessing the stars…
