New York Times bestselling author Lara Adrian returns with a pulse-pounding new novel in the thrilling Hunter Legacy series of vampire romances set in the darkly seductive Midnight Breed paranormal story world.
Born and raised as an assassin in the notorious Hunter program, Breed vampire Cain has since put his specialized skills to use as a mercenary willing to clean up any problem for a price. Or so he thought. After a job in Las Vegas strains even his dubious code of honor, Cain pulls up stakes and lands in Miami for a much-needed break. All he wants is time away to clear his head and regroup, but then a beautiful young woman is nearly killed in front of his eyes and the ruthless former Hunter becomes the only thing standing between her and a sniper’s bullet.
Marina Moretskova is no stranger to dangerous men. As the niece of a Russian organized crime boss, she’s grown up around killers and criminals. But her uncle wants out now, and he’s enlisted Marina’s help in buying his freedom by delivering valuable intel to a secret contact in exchange for protection. Not even Marina’s bodyguards are aware of her mission, so when an attempt on her life is averted by a handsome, steely-eyed vampire, as grateful as she is for Cain’s intervention, the last thing she needs is the shrewd Breed male nosing around for answers. Cain’s cold, haunted gaze and merciless abilities attest to his brutal nature, yet the rough, solitary Hunter stirs a powerful longing in Marina—a darkly seductive hunger she can neither afford nor resist. With a target on her back and covert enemies closing in from all sides, trust is a risk that can prove deadly . . . and the safest shelter she may find is in the arms of the most lethal man she’ll ever know.

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Thea Harrison comes the final novella featuring Pia and Dragos…
Pia’s latest pregnancy has become a daily challenge, her relationship with Dragos strained with argument. That hasn’t stopped them from achieving a compromise and traveling to Las Vegas to celebrate their friend Rune’s wedding to his mate Carling.
From the moment they arrive, the trip goes awry. Death walks in Vegas, and Pia is kidnapped as an ancient enemy makes a move to destroy the Great Beast once and for all.
But the Great Beast has other plans.
On Planet Dragos everything goes the way he arranges it—unless someone decides to cross him, and God help them then, because he doesn’t know how to back down, and he doesn’t ever, ever let up….
This book was a thrill ride from start to finish. Love the Elder Race series and this one was amazing. We are introduced to a couple of new characters especially Stinkpot aka Niall and Azrael. I do so hope that Azrael gets his own book. He took it very well when Pia slapped him. Plus we got to see some old favorites. I think everyone who was anyone in this series showed up for this book. I always hate to see the end of her book and I cannot wait to see where Ms. Harrison take us on the next journey into this world. I give this one 5 stars. I was given ARC in consideration of fair and honest review.
Enter New York Times bestselling author Nalini Singh's breathtakingly passionate Guild Hunter world with the story of a woman who isn't a vampire or an angel...or human...
Once a broken girl known as Sorrow, Holly Chang now prowls the shadowy gray underground of the city for the angels. But it's not her winged allies who make her a wanted woman--it's the unknown power coursing through her veins. Brutalized by an insane archangel, she was left with the bloodlust of a vampire, the ability to mesmerize her prey, and a poisonous bite.
Now, someone has put a bounty on her head...
Venom is one of the Seven, Archangel Raphael's private guard, and he's as infuriating as he is seductive. A centuries-old vampire, his fangs dispense a poison deadlier than Holly's. But even if Venom can protect Holly from those hunting her, he might not be able to save himself--because the strange, violent power inside Holly is awakening...
No one is safe. I know I say this every time but this is my absolute favorite Nalini Singh book. I didn't think i would like Viper but dayumn he is perfect for Holly. He can be an ass a sexy one but an ass none the less and he is great to have in your corner. And he treats Holly like an equal and unbroken which is what she needs. And Holly might be a newbie paranormal but she is powerful and growing more so If they can avoid the people who are trying to kill her then they just might get their happy every after. Unless Holly grows too powerful and Raphael has to put her down that is if Elena would let him. I bought this book with my own money and i give it 5 stars plus.

quest that will allow her to become ruler over two worlds … or watch Kat

Morales felt a tingle of nerves between her shoulders as she and her partner
entered Miguelito's. Something watched them – not some one, not anyone in the
knot of uniformed police and civilians gathered at the doors into the
restaurant's kitchen. What burned at the nape of Kat's neck, and turned the
greenblack amulet around her neck into ice so cold it almost burned, came from
some … thing. A creature, definitely not Human. Kat stopped a couple of steps
past the entrance, scanning her surroundings. Miguelito's had gone lavish in
Christmas decorations: arrangements of poinsettias on every Spanish-tiled table
in sight, bright-colored pinatas around the bar at the far end of the room, a
six-pointed star of Magic-enhanced light strands hanging from the ceiling in
the room's center, with more light strands radiating outward toward the walls
in a simulation of starlight.

A native of Tyler, Texas, Pat Blair lived for a few years on the
Texas coast, in the Rockport and Corpus Christi area, before moving to
Sheridan, Wyoming, since 1986. Writing as P.L. Blair, she finished her first

reporter at The Sheridan Press newspaper. After taking a short semi-retirement,
she resumed working as a reporter for Sheridan Media, a company that boasts
nine radio stations and a website, sheridanmedia.com, in 2013. Blair's writing
career was briefly disrupted by a – fortunately small – heart attack in January
2016, but with medications and a change in diet, she's recovered and back on
track. She shares her life with three dogs – a basset hound, dachshund/cocker
mix and a “Jack Russell terror” – and a cat. All are rescues.

From New York Times bestselling author Tosca Lee comes a story of love, ancient secrets, and survival. Book 1 in the House of Bathory duology.
When you wake up, you remember nothing. Not your name, or where you were born, or the faces of the people you knew. Just a single warning written to yourself before you forgot it all:
"Emily, it’s me. You.
Don’t ask about the last two years… Don’t try to remember and don’t go digging. Your life depends on it. Other lives depend on it.
By the way, Emily isn’t your real name. You died in an accident. You paid extra for that."
You start over in a remote place with a new name, a fresh life. Until the day a stranger tells you you’re being hunted for the sins of a royal ancestor who died centuries before you were born.
You don’t believe him, until they come for you. Now you’re on the run.
Every answer you need lies in a past you chose to erase. The only thing you know for sure is that others are about to die and you need those memories back.
But first, you have to stay alive.

No one speaks when you enter the Center for the last time. There’s no need. You’ve gone through the counseling, tests, and a checklist of preparations to get the plastic bracelet you wear the day of treatment. The one that saves a life. They don’t need to know why you’re doing it any more. Or that you lied about it all. Just the scratch of the stylus as you sign your name on the screen one last time.
A nurse takes me into a room and I lie down on the table. I give her the sealed packet—the only thing I brought with me. There’s cash, meds, and an address inside, the one for “after.” It’s a thousand miles away. She’ll pass it to the companion assigned to me. No point meeting her now.
I’m 21 years old and my name doesn’t matter because it’s about to be erased forever. I’m choosing to forget the ones I love, and myself, in the process.
They say your life flashes before your eyes when you die. But they don’t tell you that every detail comes screaming back to life. That you taste each bite of every meal you savored, feel the shower of every rain you walked in… smell the hair against your cheek before that last, parting kiss. That you will fight to hold on to every memory like a drowning person gasping for poisoned air.
Then everything you knew is gone. And you are still alive.
"One of the most gifted novelists writing today." -Steven James, bestselling author

New York Times bestseller Jennifer Estep (Mythos Academy) continues her Elemental Assassin urban fantasy series with an e-novella starring Silvio Sanchez, the vampire assistant of Gin Blanco, as he goes on a holiday date that turns out to be more deadly than romantic.
Working for Gin Blanco (aka the Spider, the assassin who runs the Ashland underworld) doesn’t leave much time for romance, especially with Gin’s holiday party planning in full swing. But when he catches the eye of a charming gentleman, Silvio finds himself going out for coffee.
All’s fair in love and war, though. Just as Silvio is starting to enjoy himself, he realizes he’s being watched. His nice-guy date doesn’t sense the danger, and Silvio wants to keep it that way (and, well, keep the guy alive) so Silvio ends the date early—only to be abducted by some villainous giants.
Will Silvio survive the night and make it back to the Pork Pit in time for Gin’s holiday party? Only if he decks the hall with bodies …
Note: Thisis an e-novella that takes place after the events of Unraveled, book #15. It is told from the point of view of Silvio Sanchez, Gin’s personal assistant. It is about 20,000 words — around 70 pages — and is available as an e-novella and audiobook only. There will not be a print version at this time. It is priced at $1.99.
This is a novella set in Jennifer Esteps Spider's world and while Gin and the rest of the gang are in it they are not the star of this story. Silvio, Gins right hand vampire is front and center in this story. While he's been in many of the books I didn't know much about him except that he was a vampire, a snazzy dresser, and as organized as the energizer bunny is hoppy.
This book starts out with him going on a date for which Gin was happy but it is obvious from the beginning that this wasn't going to be an ordinary boy out with boy date. He smells a set up so he tries to get his date Mitch to leave.
It soon becomes obvious well at least to me that this was a setup. And so Silvio does what Gin normally does. He kills them all and lets God sort them out. I bought this book with my own personal money and I loved it and loved getting to know more about the secondary characters in Gin's world. This one wouldn't be a good read for someone who wasn't already familiar with that world. This is definitely not a stand alone story. But I give it 5 stars and can't wait for the next story in this series.
Werewolf Carter Sinclair is on the hunt. He’s tracking a newly turned vamp, a beauty with bite named Lauren McIntosh. Hunting her is the easy part. After all, no one can hide from a wolf. But once Carter gets the vamp in his arms, his easy mission suddenly goes straight to hell.
One taste, one bite that should never have happened…and Carter is hooked—mind, body, soul. Nature has plans for him and Lauren. They’re to be mates, but a vicious vamp is waiting in the dark—a killer who has already claimed Lauren as his.
Now Carter has a new mission—keep Lauren safe at all costs. Make her fall for him. And hide all of the very dark and dangerous secrets that fill his closet. He needs Lauren to trust him, he needs her to stay with him, and the last thing he wants is for Lauren to know just how deeply he’s already betrayed her. What she never knows can’t hurt her, right?
Their mating is forbidden, but Carter is about to break every werewolf and vamp rule out there in order to claim Lauren. And those fools who try to get in his way will find out just how deadly his beast can truly be…because there is no one in the world more important to a wolf…than his mate.
I love this book. Carter is a badass and he has an a serious problem. He is a werewolf who has a serious Jones for vamp blood. He has had since he had to save his pack leaders mate. But when he is hired to get Lauren and bring her back to her "mate" he figures out rather quickly that her blood is the cure for his little problem because she is in all actuality his mate.
But when she finds out he has already betrayed the crap will hit the fan. And he will have to figure out to protect her and get rid of the bad guy all the while groveling for her forgiveness.
Lauren is an amazing heroine. She is caught is a bad situation what with the bad guy hunting. He is one bad dude. but she isn't cowed by him. She is a fighter.
But this is a Cynthia Eden book so of course there is a happy ending. And this is a darn fine read. I give this one 5 stars and if you've not read this series of hers and you love PNR then what are you waiting on. I was giving this book for consideration of a review which in no way influenced my opinion of this book.
