Blue Moon by Lori Handeland
Miniwa, Wisconsin is under siege, but not by the usual summer tourists. The area’s normally shy wolf population has begun stalking human prey, and their victims have been disappearing…or worse. Something is happening in the woods. Something brutal and primitive…
Officer Jessie McQuade has seen plenty in her years on the force-but nothing as intriguing as the gorgeous, naked man she encounters while tracking a rogue wolf. Professor Will Cadotte is a Native American activist. He’s also the only man capable of distracting Jessie from her work. And for a cop, distraction-no matter how pleasurable-can be deadly. It’s against Jessie’s better judgment to accept Will’s help in her investigation, yet she soon finds herself doing exactly that-and more. Will’s dark, penetrating eyes see into a part of Jessie’s soul she never knew existed. It’s exhilarating…and terrifying.
Now, as a town’s deepest secrets come to light, no one is safe: not friends, lovers, or strangers. And as Jessie follows a bloody trail to the shocking truth, she’ll have to decide who she can trust when the moon is full…
Sex, Murder and a Double Latte by Kyra Davis
Sophie is a popular murder mystery novelist living in San Francisco. The biracial wordsmith has it all: a small group of loving (and wildly eccentric) friends, a beautiful apartment, a charismatic feline companion — and an obsessed fan that may be trying to kill her. After a Hollywood movie producer interested in bringing one of Sophie’s novels to the big screen reportedly commits suicide in a bizarre reenactment of a death scene from one of his movies, Sophie senses there is something terribly wrong. That foreboding turns to downright terror when someone begins re-creating scenes from Sophie’s latest murder mystery with Sophie herself as the prime target. Can hunky Russian expatriate Anatoly Darinsky help her find the assailant — or is he the mysterious stalker?
Rabbit: Chasing Beth Rider by Ellen C. Maze
Whoever thought writing a bestseller could be so dangerous? Author Beth Rider’s second vampire novel has hit number one and she is flying high on her new-found fame, but at a fated book signing that runs late into the night, Beth is confronted by an evil she’d only experienced in nightmares. Jack Dawn, a supernatural monster belonging to an ancient race of bloodthirsty immortals known as the Rakum, vows to track down and kill the young writer because of the vile redemptive message her book is bringing his people. The Rakum have spread evil among mankind since the Beginning, growing in strength and influence with every passing century. Jack’s proselyte Michael Stone was brought up from his youth to be strong, sensible and oftentimes, brutal. But when he stumbles upon the beautiful and apparently innocent Beth Rider, he is instantly smitten, despite the fact that a few seconds later he realizes that she is the target of his Elder’s fury. Puzzled by Jack’s unreasonable condemnation, Michael takes it upon himself to protect the lovely author from the limitless lust of his brethren. Facing the most terrifying trial of her life against creatures known only in fables, one simple woman will unintentionally threaten the very existence of a powerful and accursed people. In the climactic mêlée, it is a race to the death, or if Beth has her way, a race to the life-of every Rakum who makes the choice.
