Faith Hunter - Dark Queen (Jane Yellowrock #12)

dark queenJane Yellowrock used to hunt vampires, but now she must fight–and win–beside them.

As Enforcer to the vampire Master of the City of New Orleans, Jane Yellowrock stakes her reputation and her life on keeping her territory safe. But Leo has been issued a blood challenge by the emperor of the European vampires, who seeks to usurp all of his power and possessions. If Leo loses the match to the death, the city will be forfeit, and the people of New Orleans will suffer the consequences. Jane can’t let that happen.

Preparing for the duel requires all of Jane’s focus, but with so much supernatural power in play, nothing goes according to plan. She has to rely on herself and the very few people she knows she can trust to stand and fight. Only two things are guaranteed: nothing is sacred, and no one is safe.

Sherrilyn Kenyon - Death Doesn't Bargain (Deadman's Cross Trilogy #2)

death doesn't bargainHell On Earth.

When the Chthonians brought the primal gods to a truce at the end of their great war, part of the pact they forged was that the worst of the evil the gods had unleashed against each other and mankind would be forever banished.

But forever is a long time. And nothing can contain those determined to find a way back.

To catch evil, it takes evil . . .

While Thorn is able to contain the demons unleashed on the ground, the ones who prey on the innocent sailors and sea faring travelers are beyond his reach.

For the sake of humanity, he makes a shaky alliance with an old foe, Marcelina. In the form of the ship they sail upon, she assembles a team under the command of Captain Devlyn Nathaniel Bane, one of the most notorious and bloodthirsty pirates to ever sail the high seas.

Damned and murdered by his own, Bane is out for revenge. With his own secret agenda, he agrees to take charge of the motley crew of pirates and brigands, and to protect the seas from the preternatural terrors that seek to devour every unwary soul they can take.

Theirs is a sacred and deadly task, as they are hunted by their prey and human authorities alike. If they fail, the world will fall to the ancient gods of chaos, and anarchy will reign. Most of all, the Southern gate, where the greatest, most powerful darkness is imprisoned, will be opened and there will be no stopping it.

It’s yo ho ho and a bottle of high seas stakes where the souls of all humanity are the ultimate prize and bargaining chip.

Carole Mortimer - Grigor (Dragon Hearts #5)

grigorGrigor Pendragon is nearer to turning feral than any of his brothers, of making that final shift and remaining in his dragon form. If— When this happens, his brothers will have no choice but to kill him, before he harms any humans, who for sixteen hundred years haven’t known of their existence.

The only thing that will stop Grigor’s last and fatal shift is meeting and claiming his fated mate, the one woman meant just for him.

Gayle Wilson is independent and outspoken, a computer geek, and she has no idea her sister, Holly, is now the mate of a dragon shifter, or that Dylan’s seven brothers are also dragon shifters.

What she does know is that she’s being kept a virtual prisoner at Pendragon Castle, the family’s home in North Wales, until her sister comes back from her trip away with Dylan. Gayle isn’t at all impressed when Grigor, the eldest Pendragon brother, announces she belongs to him now, and then expects her to do exactly what he tells her to do. Admittedly, he’s tall—very!—dark, and handsome, with muscles that go on for miles, but there’s no way she’s going to belong to anyone, least of all the arrogant and cold Grigor Pendragon. The first opportunity she gets she’s getting out of there and going back to London, and to hell with the whole of the Pendragon family.

But when danger starts stalking her, Grigor is the only one she can turn to for help.
