 The Moonstone and Miss Jones (Paranormal Investigator, 2) – Jillian Stone
A master of paranormal deduction—and paramour seduction—Phaeton Black has a knack for bumping into things that go bump in the night, from ghoulies and ghosties to long-leggedy beauties…

Mooning For The Moonstone

Barely escaping the clutches of a succulent succubus, Phaeton Black returns to London only to get sucked into another unearthly scheme. Professor Lovecraft has been tinkering with the secrets of life and death, replacing body parts with the latest mechanical marvels. To succeed, he needs to tap the power of the fabled Moonstone—and he needs Phaeton’s help. Of course, Phaeton would prefer to investigate the more interesting body parts of Miss America Jones. Perhaps, bringing his lady friend along for the ride won’t be to too much trouble…

Shanghaied In Shanghai

The bewilderingly beautiful and bountifully gifted daughter of a Cajun witch, Miss Jones is always up for an adventure, especially with Mr. Black as her traveling companion. But when Phaeton is mysteriously shanghaied in Shanghai, America thinks he’s run out on her. Stranded in the Orient—and steaming mad—she’s prepared to look under every stone for the missing detective. The case has put them both in the most compromising positions, but this time, Miss Jones is on top and Mr. Black is at the bottom…of a truly infernal plot.

 Le dernier Hiver – Jean-Luc Marcastel
2035, 31º C en-dessous de 0. Depuis des années, le Crépuscule baigne Aurillac dans un ciel de sang. L’Hiver s’est installé, un hiver éternel qui dévore les terres et fige l’océan dans la banquise. La Malesève, cette armée de pins monstrueux, a mis à genoux la civilisation. Alors, devant la fin d’un monde, que reste-t-il d’autre que l’amour ? L’amour qui va pousser Johan à braver le froid et les pins pour retrouver sa bien-aimée, l’amour qui va pousser son frère, Théo, à lui ouvrir la voie, l’amour toujours qui incitera Khalid et la jolie Fanie à tout laisser derrière eux pour les suivre. L’amour est-il assez fort pour triompher de la Malesève et de ce qu’elle a fait des hommes ? 
On the Island – Tracey Garvis Graves
When thirty-year-old English teacher Anna Emerson is offered a job tutoring T.J. Callahan at his family’s summer rental in the Maldives, she accepts without hesitation; a working vacation on a tropical island trumps the library any day. T.J. Callahan has no desire to leave town, not that anyone asked him. He’s almost seventeen and if having cancer wasn’t bad enough, now he has to spend his first summer in remission with his family – and a stack of overdue assignments – instead of his friends.

Anna and T.J. are en route to join T.J.’s family in the Maldives when the pilot of their seaplane suffers a fatal heart attack and crash-lands in the Indian Ocean. Adrift in shark-infested waters, their life jackets keep them afloat until they make it to the shore of an uninhabited island.

Now Anna and T.J. just want to survive and they must work together to obtain water, food, fire, and shelter. Their basic needs might be met but as the days turn to weeks, and then months, the castaways encounter plenty of other obstacles, including violent tropical storms, the many dangers lurking in the sea, and the possibility that T.J.’s cancer could return. As T.J. celebrates yet another birthday on the island, Anna begins to wonder if the biggest challenge of all might be living with a boy who is gradually becoming a man.

Nécromancienne (Alex Craft, 1) – Kalayna Price

Grave witch Alex Craft can speak to the dead, but that doesn’t mean she likes what they have to say . . .
As a private investigator and consultant for the police, Alex Craft has seen a lot of dark magic. But even though she’s on good terms with Death himself—who happens to look fantastic in a pair of jeans—nothing has prepared her for her latest case. Alex is investigating a high profile murder when she’s attacked by the ‘shade’ she’s raising, which should be impossible. To top off her day, someone makes a serious attempt on her life, but Death saves her. Guess he likes having her around . . .
To solve this case Alex will have to team up with tough homicide detective Falin Andrews. Falin seems to be hiding something—though it’s certainly not his dislike of Alex—but Alex knows she needs his help to navigate the tangled webs of mortal and paranormal politics, and to track down a killer wielding a magic so malevolent, it may cost Alex her life . . . and her soul.
Je me présente : Alex Craft, nécromancienne et consultante pour la police.
J’ai la faculté d’invoquer les ombres et j’en ai fait mon métier – du moins, j’essaie d’en vivre, même si parfois je préférerais ignorer ce que les morts ont à me révéler.
Question magie noire, je croyais avoir tout vu, mais le meurtrier que je traque en ce moment est d’une malveillance crasse!J’ai beau être en bons termes avec la mort, cette fois il n’est pas impossible que j’y laisse ma peau…et peut-être même mon âme…

  1. OOooh nice! Have read Kalayna’s book! Loved it! She writes awesome books! If you like this one I HIGHLY recommend her other series…can’t think of the series name right now, but the first one is called Once Bitten! It’s totally different from this series, but still incredibly awesome!

    My STS will be up tomorrow, so be sure to stop by!
