Wildfire (Hidden Legacy, 3) – Ilona Andrews

Just when Nevada Baylor has finally come to accept the depths of her magical powers, she also realizes she’s fallen in love. Connor “Mad” Rogan is in many ways her equal when it comes to magic, but she’s completely out of her elements when it comes to her feelings for him. To make matters more complicated, an old flame comes back into Rogan’s life…

Rogan knows there’s nothing between him and his ex-fiance, Rynda Sherwood. But as Nevada begins to learn more about her past, her power, and her potential future, he knows she will be faced with choices she never dreamed of and the promise of a life spent without him.

As Nevada and Rogan race to discover the whereabouts of Rynda’s kidnapped husband and are forced to confront Nevada’s grandmother, who may or may not have evil motives, these two people must decide if they can trust in each other or allow everything to go up in smoke.

Grave Secret (Secret McQueen, 5) – Sierra Dean

Sometimes a secret goes to the grave. Sometimes Secret puts you there.

It’s been a hell of a year for Secret McQueen, and the last thing in the world she wants is to get caught up in werewolf drama. But when her former fiancé Lucas Rain shows up asking for her help, she knows there’s no easy way out.

After making it known she wants nothing to do with him, Secret agrees to help find Lucas’s wayward sister Kellen. After all, how much trouble could one socialite get into in the city that never sleeps?

Unless that socialite has been spirited away by fairies.

Trying to track down a missing girl in an alternate reality is just the start of Secret’s problems, though. Someone appears to be killing teenagers, and the MO looks eerily similar to something for which the half-fairy oracle, Calliope, might be responsible. Throw in a rogue wolf pack claiming allegiance to Secret’s mother, Mercy, and she’ll have miles to go before she rests.

Warning: This book contains a promise fulfilled, sex that’s out of this world, and more heartache than one hybrid assassin can handle.

Cold Hard Secret (Secret McQueen, 7) – Sierra Dean

The Secret’s out, and heads will roll.

Ever since her near-death experience at the hands of the villainous Dr. Kesteral, Secret McQueen hasn’t been the same. As in damaged almost beyond repair. But as usual, Secret has no time to lick her wounds.

Armed to the fangs, she and Desmond embark on a whirlwind quest for revenge that takes them to the sewers of Paris to put an end to Alexandre Peyton. Instead, it’s almost the end of them, and before she can stop him, Peyton rips the veil off her deepest secret.

The devil’s not through muddling up the details, either. An eye-opening confab with Sig in the Big Apple leaves her wondering if she’s ever been in control of her own life at all. Plus, a cryptic postcard sends her racing back to her Manitoba hometown, fearing for her grandmere.

With the Council holding the power of life and death over her head, Secret’s circle of friends is shrinking, while the pool of enemies looking for payback is widening like a pool of her own blood.

Warning: Contains the least romantic Paris getaway in history and an unstoppable hybrid with an impossible choice to make between two men who’ve been to hell and back for her.

Dangerous to Know (Lillian Frost & Edith Head, 2) – Renee Patrick

Classic Hollywood. Silver Screen Style. Vintage Murder. A champagne cocktail of a mystery covered in movie magic stardust

December 1938. Lillian Frost has plunged head first into a world of boldfaced names and endless glamour as social secretary to movie-mad millionaire Addison Rice. Costume designer Edith Head is now in charge of Paramount Pictures’ wardrobe department, although her position is precarious: potential replacements are being auditioned on a regular basis. The two friends again become partners thanks to an international scandal: a real-life incident, a historical footnot long forgotten, in which the war clouds gathering over Europe cast a shadow on Hollywood.

At a swanky Manhattan dinner party the well-heeled guests speak ill of Adolf Hitler in front of a German maid with Nazi sympathies. The secrets she spills soon have all of New York society running for cover–and two of Paramount’s biggest stars, Jack Benny and George Burns, facing smuggling charges.

When an émigré composer seeking work at Paramount is found dead, Marlene Dietrich tells Edith she blames agents of the Reich. As Lillian and Edith unravel intrigue that extends from Paramount’s fabled Bronson Gate to FDR’s Oval Office, only one thing is certain: they’ll do it in style.

Spill Zone (Spill Zone, 1) – Scott Westerfeld & Alex Puvilland

Nobody’s ever really explained the Spill. Was it an angelic visitation? A nanotech accident? A porthole opening from another world? Whatever it was, no one’s allowed in the Spill Zone these days except government scientists and hazmat teams. But a few intrepid explorers know how to sneak through the patrols and steer clear of the dangers inside the Zone. Addison Merrick is one such explorer, dedicated to finding out what happened that night, and to unraveling the events that took her parents and left her little sister mute and disconnected from the world.

 

Brutale – Jacques-Olivier Bosco

Elle est jeune. Elle est belle. Elle est flic. Elle est brutale.

Des jeunes vierges vidées de leur sang sont retrouvées abandonnées dans des lieux déserts, comme dans les films d’horreur.
Les responsables? Des cinglés opérant entre la Tchétchénie, la Belgique et la France.
Les mêmes qui, un soir, mitraillent à l’arme lourde un peloton de gendarmerie au sud de Paris.
Que veulent-ils? Qui est cet « Ultime » qui les terrorise et à qui ils obéissent?

Face à cette barbarie, il faut un monstre.
Lise Lartéguy en est un.
Le jour, elle est flic au Bastion, aux Batignolles, le nouveau QG de la PJ parisienne.
La nuit, un terrible secret la transforme en bête sauvage.
Lise, qui peut être si douce et aimante, sait que seul le Mal peut combattre le Mal, quitte à en souffrir, et à faire souffrir sa famille.

The Deal (Off-Campus, 1) – Elle Kennedy

Hannah est une très bonne élève et elle a un don incroyable pour le chant.

Mais quand il s’agit d’hommes et de séduction, elle perd tous ses moyens. Garrett est la star de l’équipe de hockey de l’université, mais ses résultats scolaires ne sont pas à la hauteur et il risque de perdre sa place dans l’équipe. Ils vont passer un drôle d’accord.

Elle lui donne des cours et il l’aide à séduire le quaterback de l’équipe de football.

 

Toi + Moi + Lui – Tijan

Summer Stolz est amoureuse de Kevin Matthews depuis le collège. Qui ne le serait pas ? Toutes les filles du campus en sont folles, et il reste rarement célibataire très longtemps…

Alors, quand une liaison naît entre leurs père et mère respectifs, et que Summer se retrouve en cohabitation avec son coup de coeur 24 heures/24, la situation prend un tournant… épicé.

Mais c’était sans compter sur sa rencontre avec le mystérieux Caden Banks. Un jeune homme rebelle, insoumis, dangereux… mais, surtout, terriblement sexy. Summer va alors devoir répondre à son coeur : peut-il battre pour deux garçons à la fois ?
