Circle of Death (Damask Circle, 2) – Keri Arthur
In one vicious night, Kirby Brown’s world is torn apart. Her best friend is dead, killed by a madman who is now after Kirby, and she has no idea why. When the police prove incapable of protecting Kirby, she has no choice but to trust a mysterious stranger. And while she finds herself inexplicably drawn to him, she fears the strange abilities he wields.
An investigator for the Damask Circle, Doyle Fitzgerald, has come to Melbourne, Australia, to hunt down a killer. What he doesn’t expect to find is a cadre of witches capable of controlling the elements, a sorceress determined to take that power for herself, and a broken woman who is more than she seems. Doyle is certain that the reason behind the bloodshed lies in Kirby’s past—a past she has no wish to remember. Because Doyle isn’t the only one with magic in his soul: Kirby’s special gifts have the strength to destroy the world.
Circle of Desire (Damask Circle, 3) – Keri Arthur
A TEMPTING FATE
Two children have been found dead, their souls torn from their bodies. Two more are missing, and Ethan Morgan’s niece is one of them. A dedicated cop, Ethan has every intention not only of bringing her back alive but of catching the monster behind these kidnappings. And he will use anyone and everyone to achieve those aims—even a crazy woman who claims to be a witch. But time is ticking. The victims rarely stay alive for more than seven days. Four of those days have already passed.
In ten years of working for the Damask Circle, shapeshifter Katherine Tanner has never come across anything that goes after kids the way this monster does. The last thing Kat needs is interference from a cop who has no idea what he’s up against. But the greatest threat to Kat may come not from the forces of darkness, but from the man she is beginning to love. Because Ethan is a werewolf . . . and the full moon is rising.

Rock Chick (Rock Chick, 1) – Kristen Ashley
Indy Savage, cop’s daughter, rock chick and used bookstore owner, has been in love with Lee Nightingale, once bad boy, now the man behind Nightingale Investigations, since she was five years old. No matter what ingenious schemes Indy used to capture his attention, Lee never showed an interest and Indy finally gave up. Now Indy’s employee, Rosie, has lost a bag of diamonds and bad guys are shooting at him. When Indy gets involved, Lee is forced to help. Complicating matters, Lee has decided he’s interested, Indy’s decided she’s not. But she can’t seem to keep Lee out of her life when she’s repeatedly stun gunned, kidnapped and there are car bombs exploding (not to mention she’s finding dead bodies).
Indy’s best bet is to solve the mystery of the diamonds before Lee. Lee’s challenge is to keep Indy alive and, at the same time, win back her heart.
Les Anges ont la Dent Dure (Felicity Atcock) – Sophie Jomain
« Je crois que cette fois, c’est sûr, je suis née sous une mauvaise étoile. J’ai d’abord découvert les vampires, puis les anges, ensuite les entre-deux, les démons, et maintenant, voilà qu’on me jette des sorts et qu’on accroche des poulets égorgés à ma porte. Il ne manquait plus que ça ! Daphnée, ma colocataire, affirme que c’est parce que j’ai un mauvais karma, tu parles !
Quoi qu’il en soit, j’allais devoir me sortir au plus vite de ce pétrin, mais c’était sans compter que j’avais une deuxième préoccupation : Greg le Bulldozer. Cet idiot s’était amouraché d’une griffeuse psychopathe que je ne voyais pas d’un bon œil. Il avait l’air d’avoir de sérieux problèmes.
C’était plus fort que moi, il fallait que je m’en mêle, même si à coup sûr, j’allais au-devant de sacrés ennuis. »
