Bitter Blood | Lyn Gala

Bitter Blood

Officer Paige Silver assumes that a serial rapist is the worst fate her small town of Oxbow could suffer, but then her rookie partner Brady appears on her doorstep with a taste for blood and a back covered in runes that have been carved into his flesh. Suddenly the mundane evil she thought she knew is nothing compared to the demonic forces that are gathering. Well, evil might have claimed Brady for their side, but Brady came to Paige.

Even without understanding his developing powers, he offers his loyalty to the woman he has admired and wanted for some time. The fact that they were partners at work kept them from ever acting on their mutual attraction, but now that Brady is no longer human, he is determined to earn a spot in Paige’s bed and her life. And while ethics kept Paige from considering a relationship with Brady while he was alive, she’s having more and more trouble keeping any sort of professional distance. Her only fear is that the evil that changed Brady may lay claim to his soul, and if she gives him her heart, he may drag her with him right into hell.

  • Note: Bitter Blood was previously released as Insistent Hunger by another publisher. It has been revised and re-edited in this version.

Hunting for Spring | Katherine McIntyre

Hunting for Spring

Hunters are a lonely breed, and Conor’s no exception–until he meets Brenna. Even though she slinks in unannounced and kills the wight he’s hunting down, and he should be backing carefully away, he can’t get her blinding smile or gorgeous curves off his mind. The girl’s a mystery he can’t resist, so since they’re both after the same caster who’s unleashing these monsters, he suggests teaming up. Despite her initial reluctance, Brenna joins Conor’s quest and soon the wights aren’t the only thing the lusty lady is hunting down.

He’s happy enough to satisfy her hungers, though he wishes she’d give him a few answers with her kisses. Soon enough he learns her secrets have repercussions. Faster than Conor can lift his Glock, he’s drawn into a web of kidnappings and Unseelie mischief, and it’s all concealing the machinations of a darker foe–one determined to bring Philly and the two hunters to ruin.

Playing for the Other Team

Bryson just wants to make it through the last few weeks of high school alive. Graduation is on the horizon, his grades are decent, and his biggest worries are, in order, his baseball performance, his graduation gown color, and his weird hair. Everything seems on track – until two heavy realizations hit him right in the middle of his senior prom: He’s gay, and he’s in love.

Reserved artist Jasper turns him down at first, despite his feelings for Bry, but he offers help to ensure Bryson can start the next chapter in his life as the person he was always meant to be. However, Jasper struggles with his own demons. He has commitment issues and a past which won’t let go of him, including a jealous ex-boyfriend who doesn’t take kindly to his former flame being pursued by someone else. Soon, every day spells trouble for the gifted outsider, forcing him to rely on Bryson for support.

Bryson must pull together all of his resolve to navigate the minefield with Jasper. Together, they stand against bullies, homophobes, and graduation gowns that threaten to make them look like bananas. With luck, they might just make it out in one piece.

Van Zant Siblings 4: Learning from the BIG Mistakes

Geneticist Alexandra Van Zant has reached her breaking point. Tired of her fiancé’s sexual secrets, learning that the basement holds a blood-red playroom, and Jonathon is Gabe’s submissive…it’s the final straw. The ménage a quatre’s future turns shaky when she informs her men the relationship is on paper only, but with a madman still intent on humanity and killing anyone who gets in his way, her reliance on Gabe, Jonathon, and Conor to keep her alive makes avoiding them impossible.

When POTUS gets involved, chasing disease outbreaks, glamorous photo shoots, interviewing on talk shows, and clandestine meetings at twenty thousand feet become the new typical day in the office for the woman more comfortable in a lab coat. Vacationing in Ireland is a welcome respite but ignoring her men in the middle of nowhere is impossible. With time for quiet reflection, will Alexandra dismiss the ménage forever or allow all her men back in her bed?

When a strategic attack lands both Alexandra and Jonathon in the hospital with life-threatening injuries the ante ups dramatically. While Alexandra is unconscious, her pregnancy reveals the secrets are getting deeper and more dangerous by the day. Will this new discovery heal the ménage or be the breaking point for them all?
