Kissed by Night, Jasmine Walt & Emma Stark

kiss

My name is Ace Bissett, and I used to think magic was a hoax.

Now I’ve got four dark, sexy gargoyles at my beck and call, magic bursting from my fingertips, and a curse that’s proving ridiculously hard to break. Juggling all of that would be a challenge on its own, but when you add in my day job as a detective? It’s almost impossible.

But all of that stuff is the least of my worries. A new threat has risen in my city, and it looks like the murderer is going after anyone with an interest in the occult.

That makes me the perfect person to stop them… but also the perfect target. And the deeper I dig, the more I realize that this isn’t an accident. The murderer is trying to get my attention, and if I don’t unmask him soon, this could be the end for not just me, but the four gargoyles who have become more important to me than life itself…

The Sacrifice, Elicia Hyder

sacri

“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.

Sloan Jordan’s days are numbered.

She has 139 to be exact.

In that time, there’s a lot to do: a missing friend to find, a wedding to plan, and her own murder plot to overthrow.

When a lead takes the crew back to Chicago, the truth they uncover is more shocking than they ever imagined — to fight the enemies of the present, they must first face the demons from the past.

The Angel of Death, Elicia Hyder

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.

If that wasn’t enough, the FBI has launched a full-scale investigation into her private life, believing Sloan might not be as innocent as she claims.

With her boyfriend, Warren Parish, deployed with the Marine Corps, Sloan’s only ally is Detective Nathan McNamara. Their friendship is already complicated, and its limits are about to be tested.

Sloan has a secret… one that could turn even Nathan against her forever.

All the missing victims of North Carolina’s deadliest serial killer have been found, all except Rachel Smith.

When the FBI produces a photo proving Rachel is alive and well in Texas, one case is closed but another one is opened. Either this is a case of mistaken identity or there are more people than just Sloan Jordan and Warren Parish who seem to walk the earth without a soul.

Along with Detective Nathan McNamara, Sloan and Warren travel south to find Rachel and solve the biggest mystery of all: determining who– or what –they really are.

Blessed– or cursed –with a connection to the souls of others, Sloan Jordan can see the best in people… and the worst. For twenty-seven years, she’s kept her ability a secret, but eleven young women have been murdered in the mountains of North Carolina, and Sloan may be the only hope of finding their killer.

She has just agreed to help Detective Nathan McNamara with the case, when a stranger– who is as alluring as he is terrifying –shows up at her doorstep with a dark past and another puzzling mystery:
she can’t see his soul at all.

Now Sloan is on the hunt for a deadly psychopath with two irresistible men. One of them would die for her, and the other would kill to keep her safe.

Cursed by Night, Jasmine Walt & Emma Stark

cbn

My name is Ace Bissett, and I’m a paranormal detective that doesn’t believe in magic.

Or at least, I didn’t before I met them.

The day I inherited my aunt’s old house, everything changed. One moment, I was convinced that magic was a hoax. The next, I’m surrounded by four winged, fanged, ridiculously hot guys who are definitely not human, and who insist that I’m the only one who can break the curse that binds them to the night.

I know I should run far, far away from this hot mess, but there’s a connection between us I can’t deny. I’m seeing things I can’t explain, feeling things that don’t make sense. The detective in me has never been able to resist a mystery, and this one is just begging me to dig in.

But all that will have to wait, because there’s a new threat stalking my city. One with a taste for blood and bone, unable to be killed or captured by normal human means.

It’s a good thing I’ve got four new roommates to help me hunt them down. But even if I didn’t, I’d figure out a way. Because I never give up. I never give in.

And I always protect what’s mine.

Her training comes at a price: helping a fae lord find several dangerous artifacts and shadowing them for his enemies. But the more she uses her abilities, the deeper she becomes embroiled in the cutthroat societies closing in on her. Soon, Brooke finds herself hemmed into a corner, condemned to make an impossible choice that might destroy the human world as she knows it.

A Soul to Take by Emily Taylor

Emily Taylor- 1;a A Soul to Take

Dying is the least of Elixia’s worries.

The world has changed: demons of legend now live among humans, integrated into society through Government programs, wishing for peace.

Elixia Albelin, however, isn’t sold. As an Agent-in-training, she knows firsthand the blood-thirst of demons and isn’t jumping to befriend the monsters plaguing her dreams.

But when a mission sours, Elixia’s sister is caught in the crossfire: taken. Abandoned by those meant to protect her family, Elixia is left with only one option if she wants to retrieve her sister – a taboo option that goes against everything she believes in.

She must sell her soul.

Now, bound to a beast and living on borrowed time, Elixia has to navigate the demonic world to find her sister within a cesspool of human traffickers and serial killers. Enemies control her fate, the simplest truths are questioned, and misperceptions must be shattered. Only one thing remains consistent – Elixia must find her sister before time runs out.

Or become the very thing she fears most: a soulless monster.

Gritty, powerful, and exciting. A Soul to Take is a gripping debut that explores prejudice, justice, and the consequences one family faces when those two collide.
