PARANORMAL ROMANCE

 

MARKED
Shadow City: Book 1

by C.M. Blackwood

Available in Kindle Unlimited

Dani Ford, a detective in the SCPD, knows this all too well. The murder rate is the highest in the country, and though it isn’t quite as bad as, say, El Salvador, it certainly gives Mexico a run for its money.

Immigration has been a big issue in America lately – but you can be damned sure nobody’s immigrating to Shadow City. If you sent them an invitation, they’d hop back over that fence so fast, the authorities working the border would pull them out a chair and fix them tea and cookies.

Murder, robbery, rape. This is all really bad stuff, no doubt – but for Dani, it’s the norm. What’s not normal is being sent to a local nightclub called Bloody Teeth to investigate a kidnapping case, and then getting attacked by a woman with fangs. And then – to add a creepy cherry to the top of the sinister sundae – being defended by another woman with fangs.

What the hell is going on in this damned city? Dani is determined to find out. She’s never believed in vampires. She’s never believed in magic. Her parents died in a car accident when she was sixteen, and from then on out it was nothing but the hardcore real world. But now . . .

She’s seriously crushing on Risa, the woman who saved her from being mauled at Bloody Teeth. They’ve shared a strange connection ever since. As it turns out, Risa – who doesn’t like Edward Cullen all that much but seems to be his charming female vampire counterpart just the same – left her “mark” on Dani, an invisible brand that recognizes them as soulmates. But Risa’s world is perilous, even more so than the one Dani’s used to, and Dani has to decide if she wants to take the risk.

All she knows is that she’s been marked, and it will change her life forever. . .

 

WITCHING MOON

by Poppy Woods

Available in Kindle Unlimited

Alandra Michaels is your everyday, run-of-the-mill, ordinary witch. She doesn’t have an affinity for an element, like her sister. She can’t speak to the dead, like her mother. Even her familiar–Beezelbub the moth–is a plain, non-threatening insect. Alandra is fine with that; she knows what she is and what she isn’t.

Or so she thought . . .

When a spell goes wrong and a gorgeous woman shows up in her living room claiming to be the Moon, everything changes for Alandra and her magical abilities will be put to the test.

Can she reverse the spell and send Luna back to her realm?

Celestials never go to Earth anymore. When witches figured out they could harness their energy for ultimate power, celestials closed the doors to their own realms.

When a beautiful young witch accidentally summons Luna to Earth, the clock begins ticking. Can she make it home before she’s sacrificed for her power?

Will she even want to?

With the aid of the Fae, shape shifters, Vampires, and other creatures of supernatural lore, the Worldship, Leviathan, is complete one thousand years later.

Fire is the most terrifying concept on an interstellar spaceship like the Leviathan. Enforcer Knith Shade is tasked to investigate one that threatened the Alpha-Stack of the Worldship and uncover who was responsible for it when Queen Mab is the primary suspect.

But with Cate’s vacation ending in a few short weeks and Aspen’s aversion to staying in one place, can their encounter be anything more than a fling?

When Cate discovers Aspen’s secrets, Aspen is forced to face everything she’d been trying to forget. And everything she’d forgotten she wanted.
