Orphan X, Gregg Hurwitz

ggreg

The Nowhere Man is a legendary figure spoken about only in whispers. It’s said that when he’s reached by the truly desperate and deserving, the Nowhere Man can and will do anything to protect and save them.

But he’s no legend. Even Smoak is a man with skills, resources, and a personal mission to help those with nowhere else to turn. He’s also a man with a dangerous past. Chosen as a child, he was raised and trained as part of the off-the-books black box Orphan program, designed to create the perfect deniable intelligence assets — i.e. assassins.

He was Orphan X.
Evan broke with the program, using everything he learned to disappear.

Now, however, someone is on his tail. Someone with similar skills and training. Someone who knows Orphan X. Someone who is getting closer and closer. And will exploit Evan’s weakness– his work as The Nowhere Man –to find him and eliminate him.

The Regular Guy, Elicia Hyder

They say the best things come to those who wait, and no one hopes that’s true more than Special Operations Commander, Nathan McNamara.

For over a year, he’s put his life, his career, and his mother’s hopes for more grandchildren on hold to dive headfirst into a world he never knew existed. A world full of angels, demons, and enough sexual frustration to crack the Pope.

But all that is supposed to be behind him, and his future looks bright and full of possibilities.

That is, until a familiar chill ripples the atmosphere — and a supernatural thunder rumbles over the mountains.

The Sacrifice, Elicia Hyder

“Hello, Praea.”
There’s only one being on Earth who calls Sloan Jordan by that name — her biological mother, a demon named Kasyade. So why did she answer Sloan’s best friend’s phone? When Sloan reaches Adrianne Marx’s apartment to investigate, all she finds is a half-written list of things to do before Sloan’s wedding:

1 — Order booze for the reception
2 — Send the final guest count to the caterer
3 — Register for gifts
4 — Don’t forget to–

That’s where the to-do list ended. Mid-sentence with a scrawled line like Adrianne had been dragged away from the task. If Kasyade was involved in the abduction, Adrianne probably had been.

The reason? Ransom.

The price? Sloan’s unborn daughter, the most powerful angel in all of history.

But hell can’t rival the fury of an angry mother protecting her child, and until the baby is born, her incredible power is Sloan’s to wield. Now the prey becomes the predator as Sloan seeks to put an end to Kasyade forever.

EH- 1;c The Angel of Death

After stopping a serial killer and shutting down an interstate human trafficking ring, Sloan Jordan is ready for a break.

But back at home in Asheville, her problems have only just begun.

The supernatural world has taken an interest in her, and stranger things are happening. Her powers are multiplying, she’s plagued by vivid nightmares, and a deranged young woman, babbling an unknown language, has been detained by police.

The only cue to her identity – Sloan’s name carved into her arm.

Cozen, Bethany-Kris

COZEN Cover

coz–en (kuz-uhn)
verb
1. trick or deceive.
– obtain by deception.

She was named most appropriately.

Cozen Taylor has more than earned her place as one of North America’s most successful thieves. Her name is whispered amongst criminal elite as the go-to thief when someone needs a heist.

She has never failed.

A call from the Miami-based Astor family could change all that with a job that seems almost impossible to complete. The mark should be simple — a stolen family heirloom, the man who has kept it hidden for over twenty years, and six months to return the place to its rightful owners.

Nothing is ever that easy.

Three-hundred million for a successful heist. No smart thief would turn the offer down. Cozen didn’t expect a complication like him to put a kink in her plans, though. Sargon Makri — tall, dark, gorgeous, and entirely dangerous. For her life, her heart, and for the success of the heist.

The last thing Cozen needs to be thinking about is Sargon, and how she can get him into her bed… especially when he just happens to be her mark’s bodyguard. The thrill of the job has never been more addicting to Cozen, and she will risk everything to make the heist a success.

But at what cost?
