Forsaken by Magic, Jasmine Walt

FbMcover

 Lord Polar ar’Tollis has everything he wants. Wealth, power, respect, beautiful women eager to marry him — there is very little the Chief Mage of Nebara lacks in his life.

Except, perhaps, compassion.

Mages are taught from an early age to rein in their emotions, that they are superior to humans and shifters, and that they must rule with a firm, unyielding hand. But when an execution order for a little girl crosses Lord Polar’s desk, his entire world view is called into question. Especially when he realizes the depth of corruption within his own office.

Saving the life of an innocent child should not be a hard choice. But if Polar helps her, his own life will be at risk. And with enemies lurking in the shadows, waiting for him to fall, he cannot afford a single misstep…

A novella exploring the origins of Fenris, one of the most beloved characters from the Baine Chronicles.

The Last Magician, Lisa Maxwell

maxwellcover

Stop the Magician.
Steal the book.
Save the future.

In modern-day New York, magic is all but extinct. The remaining few who have an affinity for magic- the Mageus -live in the shadows, hiding who they are. Any Mageus who enters Manhattan becomes trapped by the Brink, a dark energy barrier that confines them to the island. Crossing it means losing their power — and often their lives.

Esta is a talented thief, and she’s been raised to steal magical artifacts from the sinister Order that created the Brink. With her innate ability to manipulate time, Esta can pilfer from the past, collecting these artifacts before the Order even realizes she’s there. And all of Esta’s training has been for one final job: traveling back to 1902 to steal an ancient book containing the secrets of the Order- and the Brink -before the Magician can destroy it and doom the Mageus to a hopeless future.

But Old New York is a dangerous world ruled by ruthless gangs and secret societies, a world where the very air crackles with magic. Nothing is as it seems, including the Magician himself. And for Esta to save her future, she may have to betray everyone in the past.

Open Hearts by Eve Dangerfield

Eve Dangerfield 3;b Open Hearts

Ash Bennett’s had enough. She’s not wasting any more time longing for Prince Charming and getting stuck with Prince ‘Baby, What’s For Dinner?’

If she can’t find a respectable, self-sufficient man to start a family with she’ll just do it by herself. It’s better than pinning all your hopes on a guy who’s never going to make you happy. Take Dean Sherwood, sure he’s stupid hot but that doesn’t pay the bills or remember to pick you up from the airport. No, they’re just having a little fun until Ash can find a donor. Right?

If only it was that easy…

Everyone loves Dean. He’s easygoing, a great footballer and always up for a beer or sixteen. He also has the attention span of a Cocker Spaniel on MDMA, but that’s never been a problem where the opposite sex is concerned. At least it wasn’t until he met Ash. Beautiful, driven and wild in bed; she’s all he’s ever wanted in a wife.

Unfortunately, he’s far from what she wants in a husband, what with his perpetually empty bank account and inability to cook anything other than bacon. When she tells him he’s not baby-daddy material, Dean vows to become the man she needs, whatever it takes.

DT cover

Nia and Loren go head-to-head with Ancient Greek Gods in the next installment of this epic urban fantasy adventures series…

She went from sacrificial lamb to single Immortal, and with her self-appointed best friend, Loren, they left her heartache and China in search of a new adventure: a lost, ancient tablet that could lead them to the rumored group giving out everlasting life and riches.

It was supposed to be a girls’ trip, a chance to get over a man she’d loved for 500 years and another she’d learned she had forgotten about. She needs this distraction, for the sake of figuring out what else she’s forgotten, if not only to let her heart settle. But when a possible clue leads Nia and Loren in the middle of brewing trouble with the Greek gods, our dear archaeologist realizes that more rides on them finding the tablet than she originally thought.

In fact, she just may end up buried with the past she’s so adamant to find.

Hunted by Sin, Jasmine Walt & Debbie Cassidy

HbS cover

Now that Malina is the Gatekeeper-in-Training of the underworld, her life is a week bit different. Instead of spending her days killing innocents, she’s protecting them by catching the bad guys who want to drink their blood and steal their souls. Plus, she’s immortal, can eat without gaining an ounce, and is damn near hard to kill. Pretty good, right?

Unfortunately, not everything is going as smoothly as Malina would like. The latest bad guy on her radar, a rogue vampire, is proving impossible to pin. Leaving a string of missing persons in his wake, and showcasing some serious ninja skills, this target isn’t exactly the stop and chat type. And if that wasn’t bad enough, life has also decided to throw in a series of witch blood kidnappings, and an investigation order from the Mayfair Coven’s High Witch.

With people disappearing left, right and center, Malina and her friends have to find the perpetrators — fast. But the deeper they dig, the less things add up, and soon they find themselves with far more questions than answers.

If Malina wants to come out on top of this mess, she’s going to have to learn to weed the truth from the lies. But if she’s not careful, the truth just might kill her…
