All my Ghosts have Heartbeats by Victoria Ellis

Hawk by Kat Savage

Hawk Blurb:

Hawk Tanner is not a man of many words—especially if you’re a silly girl getting a silly tattoo in his shop. The owner of Bird’s Eye Tattoo Studio doesn’t want you to tip him with your phone number or flirty glances. He’s tired of all the wrong women wanting him for all the wrong reasons.

Drew Ashby has no time—for anything. As a recently-divorced single mother, her focus is on finding a job, caring for her daughter, and rebuilding some semblance of a life after hers was wrecked.

When Drew lands a job at Bird’s Eye, sparks don’t immediately fly. She can’t deny the fact that her boss is a delicious specimen of a man. His tattoo-covered skin might even drive her wild, but his brooding presence and set jaw make him hard to read.

That is, until he drops the bad boy persona and starts making moves on her—kind and caring gestures she doesn’t expect.

Things turn hot, and just when Drew thinks everything is finally going right, life does what it does best: It throws her a curveball from her past.

Bird’s Eye might not be the family Drew envisioned for herself, but ideals can change in a heartbeat. There’s no doubt Hawk is the man she wants, but can he step up and be the man she needs?

Unwanted by Ashlee Rose

Unwanted Blurb:

Your wedding day is supposed to be the happiest day of your life, right?

So why am I left in tears without a husband?

Luna Smith was set to be married to who she thought was her dream guy but life doesn’t always work out how you want it. Does it?

When her friends convince her to go to Hawaii on what was meant to be her honeymoon, instead making it a girls holiday. She never would of imagined having a unwanted tag along, a bodyguard that her father insisted she take with her.

Dark, brooding and devilishly handsome Taron Sloane is everything she didn’t want.

Taron was hired to do a job, to keep Luna safe at all times but he never would of thought the little spitfire would keep him on his toes and give him a run for his money.

Luna is sure she’s back on the path of where she wants to be when her life gets turned upside down again.

Can Taron and Luna fight this unwanted chemistry crackling between them? Or are the unwanted demons too much for them to battle.

Fallen Rebel & Darkened Soul by C.G. Blaine

Fallen Rebel Blurb:

Cass 

Watchers exist by one rule: keep your Nephilim alive. No matter what.

Protecting, following, watching from the shadows, I’ve served my time. Now, all that stands between me and returning home is her.

Hannah Kelley. The last of her line. My final charge. So long as she stays breathing for the next fifty to seventy years, I’ll have completed my punishment. No longer a Fallen.

Except now, she knows who I am. She knows what I am.

And I have no doubt she’s about to make my existence an absolute hell.

Hannah 

I lost everything I loved at once, my world ripped apart in an instant.

I’ve been alone ever since. At least, I thought I was until I met him. A guardian angel. My Watcher. The immortal asshole interfering with every aspect of my life.

Once Cass steps out of the shadows, I have no way of putting him back. Even though I desperately want to. He’s not exactly thrilled with my existence either. I’m keeping him from the eternity he’s been waiting for after all.

But whether we love or hate each other, our fates are intertwined—his forever tied to my life.

And when Cass decides he wants that forever to include me, I fear for anything in Heaven or Hell that might try to get in his way.

***

Darkened Soul Blurb:

Keep my Nephilim alive. Earn back my light. Finally go home.

As a Watcher, nothing else should matter. Nothing else has mattered. Until her.

She dug her way in without any invitation. Now, she haunts my dreams and makes me lose focus. The one mortal off-limits, and regardless of how hard I try, I can’t stay away. And the more untouchable she becomes, the more I want her.

At first, she’s a distraction that could cost me the eternity I’ve worked so hard to protect. But then she becomes a danger beyond anything I’ve ever imagined. When it comes to her, it’s not only my immortality hanging in the balance. This woman threatens my soul’s very existence 

Our story was always meant to be messy—because, at the end, one of us has to die.

Once Upon a Valentine by Jess Bryant

Once Upon a Valentine Blurb:

Branson Frost is out of control.

His life is a mess. He doesn’t take anything seriously. He drinks too much, he parties too hard and he goes to bed with random strangers all so he doesn’t have to feel so alone. The one thing he doesn’t do is attachments which is why he’s never let himself have the one man that might be able to rein him in for good.

Julian Holland is always in control.

As the executive assistant to the CEO of Frost Financial, he organizes and executes. He has his entire life planned out and getting his heart broken by a billionaire playboy isn’t on his to-do list. That’s why he swore to himself he’d never fall into bed with the charismatic younger brother of his boss, no matter how Branson’s reckless flirting makes him feel. 

Only one Valentine’s Day setup, too much champagne and three little words change everything they thought they knew about each other and themselves. Do opposites really attract or do Branson and Julian have more in common than they ever realized? Do we get to choose who we love or are our hearts always in control?

Kian’s Focus, Birdie’s Biker & Truly’s Biker by Misty Walker

Kian’s Focus Blurb:

I lost my boyfriend on the night I had planned to propose.
It was a horrific accident that was all my fault.
I gave up and resigned myself into a life of obscurity.

Until I got a call that my sister, Sara, needed me.
It gave me purpose and I ran to her rescue.
Because that’s what I’ve done our whole lives.

That’s how I ended up in Brigs Ferry Bay.
But when I showed up, things were so much worse than I thought.
She was sullen, fragile, and sinking into a depression I didn’t know how I’d get her out of.
Together, we were drowning.

Until I met Kian.
He’s everything I’m not.
Bouncy, bubbly, full of life, and an innate ability to make everything better.
He makes me believe I can be happy again.

Now the unthinkable has happened and Sara is on the verge of losing her life.
Once again, it’s all my fault.
Kian had clouded my vision with promises of hope and forever.
I was so stupid to believe I could be happy again.

I try push him away.
To shove him out of the darkness that follows me.
I don’t want him to suffer the future fate had secured me to.
But Kian’s focus is on me
And he’s used to getting what he wants.

Birdie’s Biker Blurb:

Vegas is where good people go to sin. Reno is where the bad ones go.

Amidst the drugs, weapons, and trafficking, a murder-for-hire market has emerged. And my motorcycle club is right in the thick of it.

If you can pay, we have a million different ways to solve your problem. You want someone to vanish without a trace? The Great Basin Desert is almost two hundred thousand square miles of “nobody will ever find you.” You want to make a statement? We’ve been known to hang bodies from the Reno Arch.

If you’re paying, we’re killing. No witnesses, no evidence, and no questions asked.

That is until we’re hired to locate and kill a group threatening biological warfare by exposing our city to a deadly virus they stole. It’s the big payday we need. But in order to take the job, we have to also agree to protect the spoiled brat who saw everything.

Small. Frail. Innocent. Frightened. I made her my little birdie, but she always wants to fly away. Too bad for her I’ve clipped her wings and locked her in my cage.

They say free birds sing, and caged birds pray. Her cries sound the same to me.

***

Truly’s Biker Blurb:

Truly:

Blond hair, a chiseled body, and ice blue eyes.
All the features of a god that trick you into thinking he’s a savior.

But he’s not.
Roch’s a devil in disguise.
A contract killer, in a motorcycle gang,
and the man I’ve been in love with since I was eight.

Now that I’m legal, I’m not waiting any longer for him to realize it.
So I act out, I cause a scene, I try to make him jealous.
Except, I trusted the wrong person.

Now Roch and his club are in danger,
and it’s all my fault.

I really messed up this time.

Roch:

Truly thinks I don’t notice how she’s suddenly everywhere now that she’s an adult.
Getting into trouble, showing me what a brat she is, and
making me come rescue her.

But she’s my best friend’s daughter.
My dead best friend’s daughter.

No matter how she taunts me, it can’t happen.
The Royal Bastards are my brothers and my dogs are my world.
There’s no room for complications.

When one of her tantrums brings trouble to my door,
it’s not just her life at stake, it’s my entire club’s.
Now she has my full attention, and I’m realizing
Truly owned my black heart the entire time.

Will we be over before we’ve begun?

Alpha Hell by G. Bailey & Scarelett Snow

Crescent Wolves: Supernatural Shifters Academy by G. Bailey & Regan Rosewood

Her Wolves: Fall Mountain Shifters by G.Bailey

Alpha Hell Blurb:

The alpha of hell is my fated mate and he rejected me.

I’m an outcast in my pack and have been since the day I was born. Shunned by most of the wolves around me, I’ve managed to stay out of trouble… until now.
Now The Alpha of Stormfire is hunting me, but he doesn’t want to claim me as his mate.

He wants me dead.

Forced to leave my old life behind, I have no choice but to go on the run. Luckily, The Demon Hunting Trials is the perfect place to hide, even if it comes with a few obstacles.

Such as their leader is a total jerk, a wolf is blackmailing me to be his friend, and I swear my new, sexy as sin partner is trying to get us killed.

With demons running amok and the alpha of hell searching for me, I hope I can live long enough to get my revenge.

Crescent Wolves Blurb:

Secret societies. Magical boarding schools. Supernatural beings…What could go wrong? 

I’m Millie Brix and apparently, I’m a supernatural shifter. Funny eighteenth birthday present, right?

Chosen for Supernatural Shifter Academy, I have to learn which shifter clan I belong to and how to use my powers that are slowly growing out of control. Supernatural Shifter Academy only has five hundred places and if I’m not strong enough to survive, I won’t get to walk away.

The Sirens lure you in, the Wolves bite first and ask questions later, the Dragons only care for themselves, the Vampires plan to own the world and the Witches will do whatever it takes to win.

I’m not going to let the academy or its students beat me, that’s for sure. 

With a prince of the Vampires seducing me, a secretive Siren dead set on making me his, a gorgeous Wolf shifter who wants to claim my heart and an alpha Dragon who sees me as a prize he wants to keep… the academy is far more dangerous than it looks.

In this academy, secrets are the only thing you can trade with and I’m right in the middle of the biggest secret the academy has.

And when the truth comes out…the academy will fall. 

***

Her Wolves Burb:

I knew nothing about mates until the alpha rejected me…

Growing up in one of the biggest packs in the world, my life is planned out from the second I turn eighteen and find my true mate in the moon ceremony.

Finding your true mate gives you the power to share the shifter energy they have, given to the males of the pack by the moon goddess herself. The power to shift into a wolf.

But for the first time in the history of our pack, the new alpha is mated with a nobody. A foster kid living in the packs orphanage with no ancestors or power to claim.

Me.

After being brutally rejected by my alpha mate, publicly humiliated and thrown away into the sea, the dark wolves of the Fall Mountain Pack find me.

They save me. The four alphas. The ones the world fears because of the darkness they live in.

In their world? Being rejected is the only way to join their pack. The only way their lost and forbidden god gives them the power to shift without a mate.

I spent my life worshipping the moon goddess when it turns out my life always belonged to another…
