Kitsune | H.S. Lane


Freewheeling Kumiko is a kitsune, a Japanese shapeshifter with powers of fire and illusion. Her natural abilities come in handy for her line of work, being a world-class thief, and she loves every minute of it. When she’s hired to steal art from reclusive millionaire Takeo Shinozaki for a fat paycheck, she thinks it’s just another job.

The heist goes without a hitch until Takeo reveals that he knows who and what Kumiko is; that he’s a kitsune too, and that he wants her help. She refuses to cooperate, but after he saves her life from a vengeful victim of a past theft, decides to throw her lot in with him. His power, control, and utter brazenness when it comes to pleasuring her soon binds her to him, even when he tells her his goal – to kill the woman who murdered his family.

When revelations about the killer and Takeo’s history threaten to tear apart Kumiko’s life, she faces the hardest decision she’ll ever make – stay by the man she loves who may no longer love her, or abandon him to fight an opponent he can’t beat. Either way, her life will never be the same.

A Good Sub Would | Sierra Cartwright

A Good Sub Would

Shelby, a wanna-be sub, hasn’t found a Dom strong enough to push past her need to be in control. Her experiences as a sub have been yawn-inducing. She’s fantasized plenty, though, about Trevor Lawton, one of Dark Haven’s legendary, mouthwateringly firm Doms.

As the stakes get higher at the charity poker match, Dom Trevor Lawton is fascinated by the woman kneeling across the table from him. Problem is, she’s not a good sub. Oh, she tries, and she’s lovely. But she’s not very good at following orders. The woman needs a firm, unyielding hand… One like his.

  • Note:A Good Sub Would was previously released as part of the Doms of Dark Haven 2: Western Night anthology.

Emerald City Shifters 2: Sealed by Magic | A. Catherine Noon & Rachel Wilder

Emerald City Shifters 2: Sealed by Magic

Seattle has been at peace since before it was founded on the banks of the Puget Sound.  The war between the witches and the snake shifters ended and they now live separate lives.  Generations of distrust have kept them separated, until Ari Fitzgerald meets sexy Zachary Bennett, a young witch from the Queen City Coven.

Ari is the son of the lamia king.  He needs to find the source of the black market trading in lamia venom before any other snake shifters are hurt, or worse.  The young ones are most at risk, because their venom is more potent.  Ari discovers the source is a witch and suspicion falls on Zac and his coven. Ari doesn’t want to believe it.

Zac works for his brother-in-law, a powerful bear shifter who doesn’t care about shifter politics.  When three coyote shifters come to town, looking for black-market lamia venom and a witch to kidnap, Zac gets caught in the middle between the bears, the lamiae, and the power-hungry coyotes. He’s going to need all the help from Ari that he can get.

Ari and Zac must find the source of the venom before the city erupts into a dangerous war, with the two of them on opposite sides.

Dying for a Bite | Marie Booth

Dying for a Bite

Estelle’s a sweet Southern girl with lots of spirit but low self-esteem when it comes to her very curvy body. When she’s seduced and bitten by two of the sexiest, most desirable vampires in Shortfalls, Georgia, her sexuality’s coming alive for the first time. Thanks to the two sexy hunks she’s living with, she discovers her erogenous zones are her favorite highway to heaven. Could un-life get any better?

Nathaniel enjoyed seducing bloody gorgeous Estelle, but when her charms worked their magic on him, he lost control and bit her. Now he’s her maker, responsible for her training. While he plans to enjoy every minute of Estelle’s sexual instruction, particularly sharing her with the love of his life, Maurice, Maurice is not as enthusiastic.

When Estelle intrudes on his perfect life with Nathan, Maurice is not happy. Sure, the woman’s body is easy to arouse and enjoy—he has to admit—but he’s now determined to take back control. The fangs are coming out and so are the cuffs.

But when danger strikes their nest in the form of a rival gang, Estelle, Nathaniel and Maurice learn they’re bound together by more than sex and blood.
