Petal to the Metal by Annabel Chase

Forty-two-year-old Mia Thorne is not living her best life. After a disastrous career-and-relationship-ending event, she escapes New York City and moves to a sleepy river town in Pennsylvania, courtesy of a dead aunt she never knew. Aunt Hazel was the reclusive family nut, a self-proclaimed psychic. Of course, Mia’s dad always told her that she, too, had the gift, but after his death, her mother made sure to squelch the notion. No square pegs allowed!

Aunt Hazel’s old cottage is only slightly better than the decrepit gardens surrounding it. Mia doesn’t know the first thing about gardening and expects this will be one more failure on her seemingly endless list. Even Aunt Hazel’s ancient cat seems to have pegged her as a loser.

When Mia stumbles over a body in the overgrown garden, the newcomer catches the eye of the police chief and his hotshot detective, Derek Fairfax, and she becomes the number one suspect in the case. Much to her shock and awe, she also catches the eye of Derek’s brother, Dane, a lawyer with a head for what’s legal and a bod for what isn’t—but getting arrested for murder would certainly put a damper on her dating life.

Will Mia tap into her long-buried psychic skills in order to save herself or will she end up digging her own grave?

Crossroads Burning by Layla Nash

Sass Luckett is cursed. Not because her truck keeps breaking down, her bank account’s on life support, and she’s constantly dodging packs of dire wolves looking for a witch-sized snack.

No, Sass’s family is literally cursed: they must stay and guard their small town of Rattler’s Run from the Crossroads, the Bermuda Triangle of the prairie. If Sass and her sisters flee, the uncontrolled magic will wipe the town straight off the map—and the world will be overrun by the unnatural critters that emerge from the cataclysm.

Not to mention that there are a couple of generations of Luckett ghosts hanging around the attic, just itching to point out how she’s failing.

Sass dreams of a completely different, completely normal life far away from Rattler’s Run. But that would require money and magic she just doesn’t have.

And then some fast-talking, big city researchers offer her a fat paycheck to play tour guide on the Crossroads. When all hell breaks loose—literally—Sass realizes they’re not tracking normal wolves at all. The strangers are actually government agents investigating the magical shenanigans in and around Rattler’s Run, and somehow they think Sass is the key to restoring balance in the Crossroads.

There’s only so much cursing a witch can take, and Sass is running out of friends and patience. It’s just a matter of time until she’s sh*t-outta-Luckett.

Betwixt by Darynda Jones

Divorced, desperate, and destitute, former restaurateur Defiance Dayne finds out she has been bequeathed a house by a complete stranger. She is surprised, to say the least, and her curiosity gets the better of her. She leaves her beloved Phoenix and heads to one of the most infamous towns in America: Salem, Massachusetts.

She’s only there to find out why a woman she’s never met would leave her a house. A veritable castle that has seen better days. She couldn’t possibly accept it, but the lawyer assigned to the case practically begs her to take it off her hands, mostly because she’s scared of it. The house. The inanimate structure that, as far as Dephne can tell, has never hurt a fly.

Though it does come with some baggage. A pesky neighbor who wants her gone. A scruffy cat who’s a bit of a jerk. And a handyman bathed in ink who could moonlight as a supermodel for GQ.

She decides to give it three days, and not because of the model. She feels at home in Salem. Safe. But even that comes to a screeching halt when people begin knocking on her door day and night, begging for her help to locate their lost objects.

Come to find out, they think she’s a witch. And after a few mysterious mishaps, Dephne is beginning to wonder if they’re right.

Calypso’s Heart by M.C. Solaris

Caly
Do you dream of ridiculously hot men? Okay, maybe you do. (And yes, I’m well aware I should lay off the romance books before bed.) But do you actually ever meet those men you dream about in real life? I didn’t think so. That’s probably a good thing though because I have… And these men from my dreams have done nothing but pull the rug of reality out from under me… which was how I fell and ended up in a world that I thought only existed in romance books.

My name is Caly (AKA Callie) and I’m just an ordinary single woman living the LA dream… paycheck to paycheck. Except whose dream is it? I’m not really sure… but it’s not my dream. Especially because I have really weird dreams… like really weird. Then again, everyone has weird dreams, right?

Blake
I am an alpha wolf shifter and leader of Orion’s Order, a pack of… well, not wolves. We’re an unconventional pack of highly skilled specian hunters that do one thing: hunt the evil in our world. And we were hired by SILE (Species Investigative Law Enforcement) to hunt a bloodthirsty criminal who is infamously untraceable. That was until an irresistible female brought an unexpected twist to our hunt and set things in motion… a motion that has left my pack and our world forever changed.

Claimed in Forbidden by Keira Blackwood & Liza Street

At the Forbidden B&B, you’re just as likely to find fresh-baked cookies as straight jackets.

Like any self-sufficient woman, Daphne knows you can’t trust a selfie on Tinder. Turns out that goes for real estate, too. From the moment she reaches the driveway of the “beautiful mansion” she just purchased, she knows she’s been duped.

It’s going to take more than scrapbooks and self-affirmations to change this creepy AF insane asylum into the B&B she’s always dreamed about.

For alpha wolf shifter Declan, this is the construction job from hell. He isn’t interested in dating anyone–especially not a human. And especially not one who wants to strong-arm him into staring at paint swatches all day. But as he’s forced to work closely beside Daphne, Declan finds himself less resistant to checking out paint swatches and more interested in checking out her plumbing.

Is this the construction job from hell? Or is it destiny?

This is an adult 18+ story that contains language, possible violence, and sexual situations geared to an adult audience.

Once Bitten by Trina M. Lee

I’m a werewolf with rare power and an attraction to darkness.

Part of an organization dedicated to protecting the existence of supernatural beings, I hunt the rogues that threaten to expose us all. Not gonna lie. I love what I do. But when my ex and pack Alpha is accused of murder, it gets a lot trickier. If he’s guilty, I’ll have to be the one to take him out.

That means keeping my head in the game and not allowing sinfully alluring incubus vampire Arys to distract me. If Arys is anything, it’s darkness, and I can’t deny the power that draws us together. Falling into bed with him feels like a good idea at the time until it ends with an explosion of power and a soul-deep bond neither of us anticipated. But it comes at a price.

Now I’m craving blood and shying away from sunlight. And I don’t know how the hell to explain it to Shaz, the packmate who’s always been more than a friend. As the body count rises long-buried secrets are revealed. Secrets that prove not everyone is who I think they are. 
 
Not even me.
