Demon Bound, Chris Cannon

dound

When a summoning goes awry, suddenly booknerd Meena’s summer job becomes something drastically different.

Instead of cleaning eccentric Carol’s house, she’s bound to a demon as his soul-collector. Soon Meena discovers that the boring, pageant-obsessed, bonfire-loving town that she’s never fit in to is a hotbed for soul-sucking demons, demon-hunting witches, and vampires who just wanna have fun… And then she comes into her own powers.

Could things get any stranger? Good thing she meets new guy Jake — who gets her and still hangs around.

When Jake’s mom sends him off to his Aunt Zelda’s for the summer, he thought he’d be bored. But nothing is what it seems in this town. His aunt isn’t just odd, she’s a witch who fights demons and tries to maintain the magical balance of the town. Jake should get the hell out of there and, he would leave, except for bad-ass newbie witch Meena, who looks at him like he matters.

He never counted on sticking around, but Meena’s bound to a demon who wants to destroy her soul — and Jake’s finally found someone worth fighting for.

Reaper Witch: Wolves and Zombies, Chanda Stafford

witch reap

She spent years avoiding the dead. Now they’re coming after her.

Three years ago, Max Norton left home to open a tea leaves and tarot shop. It seemed like a good trade: escape the King of Hell and live a low-key life free from scrutiny and death threats. For a Scythe, a half-human paranormal entity who can open literal portals to Heaven and Hell, and who’s hounded by creatures both light and dark, it’s a dream come true. Until an annoyingly handsome ghost shows up and demands that Max help him solve his murder.

She wants nothing to do with it, but when zombies start attacking children and demons are sent to kill her, she knows this is one fight she can no longer avoid. Her ex-boyfriend, a charismatic wolf shifter, tells her about a dead zone in the forest where a necromancer is practicing black magic.

The only way to stop him is with the forbidden powers she ran away from; powers that will put a target on her back, because they mark her for a destined role in Hell she has no intention of fulfilling.

Saving the world from the zombie apocalypse may literally mean challenging the armies of Hell and facing the past she ran away from. With time running out, Max and Luke have to figure out who’s raising the dead and turning them into bloodthirsty monsters before they kill the few people left that she actually cares about. Hiding in the shadows, a mysterious enemy holds a secret that could change Max’s life forever…

Assuming she lives long enough to hear it.

Blackthorn Grove, Luanne Bennett

“Miss Bishop, I’m afraid we have a witch war on our hands.”

Katie Bishop has just been pulled back into the world of the Crossroads Society — to hunt down a murderous sorceress looking to take over the throne of Savannah.

It’s just another Saturday night in the city, but what happens on this particular evening will set the wheels in motion for a witch war that could destroy Blackthorn Grove — the reigning coven of Savannah.

There’s been a murder, and all the evidence points to one of their own. In the race to uncover the truth before a council of witches arrives for a formal tribunal, the revelations about Blackthorn Grove keep coming.

But that’s not all Katie has to deal with. There’s a fight going on inside of her — between the woman and the dragon that lives on her back. With her twenty-fifth birthday right around the corner, she’ll be faced with an even bigger fight — battle for control over the dragon in what could be a deadly ritual.

Will the witches of Blackthorn Grove retain the throne of Savannah? Will Katie win the battle for control over the dragon?

Enchantress Under Pressure, AC Spahn

pressure

Magic is breaking.

Newly recruited by the Void Union, enchantress Adrienne Morales plans to stay on good terms with her magic-immune handlers. That’s hard to do when everyone knows about the enchantment tattoo storing catastrophic magic on her body. Then she discovers a murder victim with an identical tattoo.

That corpse means only one thing: the cult that enchanted Adrienne has a lethal operative in town, and her conflict with the Voids just became her smallest problem.

With mysterious fires destroying Voids across the nation, the Union Legionnaire has his hands full. Catching the murderer is up to Adrienne. But as her search intensifies, magic begins breaking down around her: ghosts rise, enchantments go haywire, and the specter of war looms over San Francisco.

Played by fears from her past, mistrust from the Voids, and the sudden unreliability of her powers, Adrienne isn’t sure where to turn.

Worse, Adrienne’s life isn’t the only one hanging in the balance. If she goes down, her friends will fall beside her, and the entire city might be next. To defend her paranormal world, she must stop the murderer, uncover the cult’s secret plot, and decide whom to trust — when she’s not even sure she can trust herself.

Called by Magic, Jasmine Walt

Enforcer Annia Melcott is no stranger to adversity.

A damned good investigator and a loyal friend, she’s fought rebels and terrorists, taken down dangerous criminal gangs, and risked herself time and again for the sake of her city.

But when Annia’s life goes up in smoke, she decides she’s had enough. Hoping to lose herself in an adventure or two, she travels to the Southern continent for a much-needed respite.

The first mission she snags is simple enough — escort two mage children and their guardian back to their ancestral home, and make sure they don’t get killed or kidnapped by bandits. But while Southia’s verdant lands are beautiful and compelling, they are also rife with ancient, wild magic that the world has forgotten.

Evil shamans, powerful goddesses, and vengeful ghosts lurk in unexpected places, and if Annia isn’t careful, she might very well become their next victim…


Author’s Note:
This is a backstory novella that takes place concurrent to the events in Taken by Magic. It is also a prequel to Tempted by Magic, Book One in the brand-new Mischief and Magic series, coming Spring 2020!

Hidden by Night, Jada Storm & Emma Stark

hbn

My name is Ace Bissett, and after a lifetime of proving magic doesn’t exist, I’m learning how to be a witch.

If you’d told me a few months ago that I’d be burning sage and staking vampires, I would have laughed in your face. And yet here I am, casting spells and brewing potions while I relentlessly search for a way to lift the curse that binds my four lovers to the night.

But just when I think I’m getting a handle on my powers, ghosts from my past surface… literally.

These spirits bring danger to everyone I hold dear while hurting innocent bystanders in the process–which is something I can’t allow, no matter the cost.

My dark protectors will do anything to keep me safe, but as far as this new threat is concerned, I’m on my own. For even the strongest warrior can’t fight an enemy they can’t see, and if I don’t find a way to defeat these spirits, we might end up trapped in the darkness… forever…

Kissed by Night, Jada Storm & Emma Stark

jada curse 2

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…

Shade, Mere Joyce

ebook (3)

Fourteen-year-old Callum Silver sees dead people.

It’s not a gift. His family thinks he’s crazy. Sometimes he thinks he’s crazy. He has no friends. He’s forced to live his life surrounded by nothing but the searing pain, sickening smells and desperate moans that accompany the murdered ghosts who seek him out.

When he’s offered a place at Camp Wanagi, the ten weeks in the French countryside isn’t a vacation, it’s a lifeline. A way to meet others like himself and prove his ability can offer more than years of loneliness and expensive therapy bills.

Run by a mysterious group known as the Oracle of Senders, Camp Wanagi brings together teens from around the globe who all possess the unique ability to see the dead. While Cal is relieved to find others like him, he learns quickly that not everybody experiences the spirits as he does. Some of the campers revere their abilities and don’t understand his hesitation, while others- like quiet bookworm Meander Rhoades -have good reason for wishing they could get rid of their ‘gifts’.

While researching their final project, Cal and Meander find an unmarked grave which reveals aspects of their abilities neither knew existed, forcing Cal to decide if the torture of seeing ghosts is worthwhile and, more importantly, if being a part of the Oracle of Senders is necessary, dangerous… or both.

Four Psychos, Kristy Cunning

IMG_20171118_002643_288

I’m not so different from most people.
Like everyone else, I have life goals.

Goal #1:
Become a real girl instead of this invisible ghost thing I currently am.

Goal #2:
Convince the four men I’ve been haunting for the past five years to pick me to be their new toy after goal one is complete.

Goal #3:
Figure out who/what I am and why I can’t remember anything past the five years I’ve been haunting this quad.

Goal #4:
Eat popcorn.

See? Perfectly normal. Sort of.
Gotta start small, after all.
It’s not like anyone else is perfect, either.


WARNING:
Sexual situations. Reverse Harem. Dark humor galore. Strong language.
