(Watch Me) Save You (Run This Town Book 4) by Avril Ashton

Amazon –> http://bit.ly/1IDIQzI

Synopsis

Is love enough to pull two drowning men back from the edge of darkness?
No one will love you. Tek Ng has heard that statement his entire life, and after all he’s been through, he believes it. The tortured reality of who he is wars with everything else in his world. He’s got a fiancée he doesn’t want, a family legacy he wants to escape, and unrequited love so unavoidable he descends into sexual depravity with the last person he should. Tek is drowning, but he’s not sure he wants to be saved.
Quinn Storm hides in his quiet house, afraid of his shadow and his memories. At one time he had a husband and a life, but that was snatched away in a violent attack. Hardly daring to live, Quinn is alive only because he’s too scared to end it all himself. He’s drowning and wants no chance at being saved.
A favor for a friend brings these two men together just in time for Tek to watch Quinn unravel. Quinn quickly becomes the most important thing in Tek’s life, but can he trust Quinn to love him once he realizes what Tek is hiding? Just as they reach for each other, their reprieve is shattered by Tek’s demons, leaving Quinn with the realization that he’s not the only one in need of saving.
Warning: Contains references to rape and sexual abuse/assault.

The Gods’ Games by Quil Carter

Amazon –> http://bit.ly/1Jvqylu

Synopsis

When Erick disappeared it wasn’t that big of a surprise. Ben’s drug-addicted, lowlife brother was always pissing off dangerous people, so it was easy to assume he’d made the wrong person mad. Sure it sucked, but Ben got over it.
Then one night, four years after Erick vanished, Ben comes face-to-face with a mysterious man with silver hair, the same person who was last seen with Erick. After a failed attempt to get answers from him, Ben becomes obsessed with finding the silver-haired man he’s sure killed his brother. Though who he ends up finding isn’t quite his brother’s killer, but an odd young man with pointed ears, who brings Ben to a new world that he’d never fathomed existed.
And all the more baffling, this strange-looking young man is telling Ben that not only does he need Ben to help him save their kingdom from a rebel king…
… that rebel king is none other than Erick.

Ink and Shadows by Rhys Ford

Amazon –> http://bit.ly/1LYrjRR
Review –> http://bit.ly/1HLN9Zc

Synopsis

Kismet Andreas lives in fear of the shadows.

For the young tattoo artist, the shadows hold more than darkness. He is certain of his insanity because the dark holds creatures and crawling things only he can see—monsters who hunt out the weak to eat their minds and souls, leaving behind only empty husks and despair.

And if there’s one thing Kismet fears more than being hunted—it’s the madness left in its wake.

The shadowy Veil is Mal’s home. As Pestilence, he is the youngest—and most inexperienced—of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, immortal manifestations resurrected to serve—and cull—mankind. Invisible to all but the dead and insane, the Four exist between the Veil and the mortal world, bound to their nearly eternal fate. Feared by other immortals, the Horsemen live in near solitude but Mal longs to know more than Death, War and Famine.

Mal longs to be… more human. To interact with someone other than lunatics or the deceased.

When Kismet rescues Mal from a shadowy attack, Pestilence is suddenly thrust into a vicious war—where mankind is the prize, and the only one who has faith in Mal is the human the other Horsemen believe is destined to die.

Synopsis

Book four in the Sin City Uniforms series

SWAT officer Cole can handle just about anything, until he rescues Brett—a man who makes him question all he’s ever believed about love.

As a member of the Las Vegas Police Department’s SWAT team, Cole has seen his fair share of danger, but he’s never taken a chance on love. He’s willing to have some fun when the mood strikes him, but he’s married to the job. Called in on a hostage situation, Cole is prepared for anything and everything… Except for the brave and beautiful Brett.

Brett has been burned before, most recently by Officer Parker McLean. He’s hoping to settle down in Vegas, perhaps find someone he can build a life with. The last thing Brett’s looking for is another man in uniform, but when he meets Cole, there’s an attraction that can’t be denied. He doesn’t expect to fall for the chiseled alpha, though.

What begins as nothing more than two people experiencing a great night together spirals into something far deeper. But will Brett be able to handle the stress that comes with having a lover who constantly puts his life in jeopardy? And can Cole risk his heart on an everyday hero, or will the job he knows so well remain his top priority?

Bonded to the Alpha by Robin Moray

Amazon –> http://bit.ly/1NJrMYu

Length: 141 pages

Synopsis

Bonded mates are rare, and every wolf knows that the killing of a bond-mate is punishable by death. But nineteen-year-old Callum is fully human, woefully ignorant of Pack Law, and when an accidental encounter with a frenzied beta leaves the wolf dead and Callum battered but alive, he finds himself facing the wrath of the pack -- until the dead wolf’s mate invokes the right to claim Callum as his own.
With his life on the line, Callum’s only choice is to bond with the troubled alpha, and carve a place for himself in the pack by any means necessary.
Taking the bond was the worst mistake Nero ever made. But now, with his bond-mate dead, the clock is ticking. He needs to bond again by the full moon, or his next transformation will kill him. That’s all he needs the human for, just a means to an end. At least that’s what he tells himself, but as the bond takes hold he finds himself falling deeper into something he swore he would never do again.

Warlock's Cove by Jade Astor

Amazon –> http://bit.ly/1KBKZO2

Length: 39 pages

Synopsis

Synopsis: Warlock’s Cove, a picturesque village nestled on the rocky New England coast, is a small town like no other. Founded in the seventeenth century by two families driven out of Europe for practicing witchcraft, it has developed a uniquely tolerant and unconventional culture. Warlocks, vampires, and ghosts all attempt to co-exist peacefully there while keeping their secret from the outside world. Occasionally, however, they run into trouble when overly curious humans wander into town looking for trouble…or love.

When Professor Dane Forrest accepts a teaching position at the local college, he sees it as an opportunity to learn more about the folktales and supernatural legends he has spent his career researching. What he doesn’t expect is to spend his first two nights in town rescuing a student from a vampire attack and then going on a date with the alleged vampire himself. Though he’s determined to maintain detached, unemotional outlook, he soon starts to realize why vampires are known as masters of seduction…and why they are considered as deadly as they are alluring.

Meanwhile, on the other side of town, hundred-year-old vampire Simon is mourning the loss of the man he loved, who deliberately ended his existence by walking into the sunlight. Things begin to look up when Simon makes an intriguing new acquaintance down by the beach. Unfortunately, the young man in question seems to have as many secrets as Simon does. Faced with having his long-cold heart broken a second time, Simon wonders whether his best course of action might be to follow his former mate into a peaceful oblivion.

Guardians of the Haunted More (Tyack & Frayne Mysteries #5) by Harper Fox

Release date: 1st August

Amazon –> http://bit.ly/1H2WtD1

Synopsis

The wedding is just the beginning…
Gideon and Lee have spent a year in chaotic married bliss, with all the trimmings – a dog, tricky in-laws, and a baby girl they both adore. But even the best of lives can be fragile, and a shocking family loss hits their new world like a demolition ball.
Gideon has little energy left to investigate a murder that’s taken place in the fields outside Dark. He still has his duties to his community, though, and with Lee at his side, he begins to unfold the mysterious death of Farmer John Bowe. It’s harvest time, ancient West Country magic in the air, and rumours are flying through the village of an enemy Gideon thought he’d left behind long ago.
Can the beast of Bodmin possibly be real? Everything in Gideon’s stoical police-sergeant’s nature says no. But Lee has taught him to see the world differently, and now they must pool their resources to unmask a killer before more lives are lost – and somehow find a way to mend their shattered family, too.
