Finished Last Week
Secret Lives by Sierra Dean
She’s tackling her demons in the City of Angels.
Secret McQueen has been many things in her life: head of the Vampire Tribunal, werewolf queen twice over, bounty hunter, fighter, lover. She’s been the hunter and the hunted. Hell, she even died once.
One thing she never thought she’d be, however, was a normal human. Because “normal” was never a word to apply to her.
Now, Secret’s a former vampire/werewolf-hybrid living in a human’s body. She continues to answer the call of the supernatural, working for an elite FBI special unit designed to help the general public accept the existence of the creatures that used to only be found in nightmares. She’s happily married to the man of her dreams.
But when her old vampire mentor Sig goes missing, and her former beau Holden Chancery comes calling for help, Secret will be pulled out of her new sunny existence and sent back into the nightlife she once knew so well.
She’ll find herself asking if there’s any room for humanity in a world full of monsters.
And she might find there’s more than a little monster left in her, still.
Serene by Diana Nixon
I used to think that my life was a picture of perfection. I had everything a twenty-five-year-old woman could wish for: a loving family, friends, a dream job and a fiancé who thought the world of me.
Until the day I lost it all… Including my ability to see.
The car accident took away not just my vision, but also a part of me that I was sure I would never be able to get back.
And then I met him… Stanley Burke. A kind of a man I thought didn’t exist anymore: understanding, loving, supportive and generally too good to be true.
Without effort, he breathed life into my frozen heart, making it beat faster than ever before.
He became a light that my eyes would never see again. He made me feel things that were long lost and forgotten.
Only I couldn’t give him what he deserved.
Because in my pitch-dark world, there was no place for love…
“I’ve never been so scared of losing someone in my entire life… Then again, I’ve never had anyone as important as you are to lose…”
La Nouvelle Arche de Julie De Lestrange
Spécimen : enfant maintenu en gestation artificielle pendant quinze années. Donne naissance à un membre actif et productif de la Communauté.
Mathilde est l’une des premières. Aujourd’hui âgée de 20 ans, elle s’occupe des futures générations qui grandissent au Centre. Comme elle, ces spécimens n’auront pas d’enfance. Comme elle, ils naîtront, prêts à se battre, pour affronter l’ennemi invisible qui terrorise leur Communauté.
Aussi, lorsqu’un mal étrange frappe certaines unités, Mathilde cherche à tout prix le moyen de les sauver. Et ce qu’elle découvre pourrait bien remettre en cause sa propre humanité.
Mais peut-on être seule à changer le monde ?
Désormais, elle n’a plus qu’une alternative : se taire. Ou combattre.
Six de Coeur de L.H Cosway
Approchez et faites la connaissance de Jay Fields, illusionniste, mentaliste et manipulateur.
Je réfléchis en trois dimensions quand vous pensez en lignes droites.
Je vous montre une table et vous croyez voir une chaise.
Fumée, miroirs, tours de passe-passe… Je détourne votre attention. Je fais mes tours et vous abuse.
Mais surtout, je vous en mets plein les yeux.
On pense que j’ai tué un homme mais je n’ai rien fait.
Cela fait partie de mon plan.
La vengeance. Voilà ce que je désire. Pour moi, et pour elle.
Pour nous six.
Elle ne se souvient pas de moi, mais pourtant, elle est la clé de tout. Ma récompense au bout du chemin – enfin… si je parviens à me retenir de l’approcher.
Allez, choisissez une carte. Entrez et assistez au spectacle. Regardez mes mains, scrutez-les avec attention et oubliez ce qui se passe à côté… pendant que je détruis votre univers depuis la scène, juste ici, sous les projecteurs.
La terre des vikings de Margaret Moore
Summoned to Thirteenth Grave by Darynda Jones
Grim Reaper Charley Davidson is back in the final installment of Darynda Jones’ New York Times bestselling paranormal series!
Charley Davidson, Grim Reaper extraordinaire, is pissed. She’s been kicked off the earthly plain for eternity – which is the appropriate amount of time to make a person starkraving mad. But someone’s looking out for her, and she’s allowed to return after a mere hundred years in exile. Is it too much to hope for that not much has changed? Apparently it is. Bummer.
She’s missed Reyes and her daughter, Beep, but now that she’s back on earth, it’s time to put to rest burning questions that need answers. What happened to her mother? How did she really die? Who killed her? And are cupcakes or coffee the best medicine? It all comes to a head in an epic showdown between good and evil in this final smart and hilarious novel.
A curse so dark and lonely by Brigid Kemmerer
Fall in love, break the curse.
It once seemed so easy to Prince Rhen, the heir to Emberfall. Cursed by a powerful enchantress to repeat the autumn of his eighteenth year over and over, he knew he could be saved if a girl fell for him. But that was before he learned that at the end of each autumn, he would turn into a vicious beast hell-bent on destruction. That was before he destroyed his castle, his family, and every last shred of hope.
Nothing has ever been easy for Harper Lacy. With her father long gone, her mother dying, and her brother barely holding their family together while constantly underestimating her because of her cerebral palsy, she learned to be tough enough to survive. But when she tries to save someone else on the streets of Washington, DC, she’s instead somehow sucked into Rhen’s cursed world.
Break the curse, save the kingdom.
A prince? A monster? A curse? Harper doesn’t know where she is or what to believe. But as she spends time with Rhen in this enchanted land, she begins to understand what’s at stake. And as Rhen realizes Harper is not just another girl to charm, his hope comes flooding back. But powerful forces are standing against Emberfall . . . and it will take more than a broken curse to save Harper, Rhen, and his people from utter ruin.
