SET YOUR NIGHTS ABLAZE WITH THE FIRST BOOK IN THE FLAMES OF VAMPIRE PASSION SERIES London Beckley (aka Lindy Beck): “Human life is short. A flicker of time, and then it’s over. Live it while you can... With me.” Those were the outrageous words Zane said to me the night I attended the adult convention to try to network and sell some books. I had left my husband to pursue my life on my own terms rather than put up with one more word of insult. Once I arrived at the event, I was startled to find someone already at my table, Zane, claiming to be my assistant for the night. As the event progressed, amidst his antics of reading excerpts to chittering ladies, and flashing what I thought were fake fangs, he made his intentions towards me crystal clear. Little did I know how drastically my life was about to change with Zane’s entrance into it. Zane took me from my colorless world, and immersed me into his vibrancy. Soon, he was inside me in almost every way possible. My conflicted mind. My hidden walls protecting me. My damaged heart. The immediate and undying intensity between us was both an awakening of my true self and an overwhelming rush ripping me apart. I wasn’t sure if I would survive the ways he made me feel in my body, heart and soul, much less the salacious, climax-inducing visions he could send directly into my psyche. After a night of interrupted intimacy, and another of heated exchanges between Zane and my mother, I threw away my inclination for sanity, and accepted his ...

Gaia save the Queen… Emma Stonetree’s father is missing. Worse yet, her uncle’s gone too, leaving her and her two cousins, Jasper and Jade, floundering for an explanation. All Emma can think of are their fathers’ stories—tall tales of magic, mystery, and a whole host of shifter races. Stories she might not have believed, if not for her own research into the matter—research that hardly prepares her for the trials of magic she and her cousins will endure as they set off that Midwinter’s night to discover their roots. Nor does it prepare the three for what they find on the other side of the mystical portal their fathers disappeared into: the ursa, a fertility-focused race of bear shifters, with customs that defy their human sensibilities. Except the trio swiftly learn they aren’t really human either, and once inside the ursa Sanctuary, they are just as bound by ursa laws as the earth is bound by the seasons. Emma and her cousins must make a choice: accept their legacies as ursa royalty, accept the love they find inside the sanctuary, or reject their passions and retreat to their safe, mundane lives, never to return to the realm they were meant to inherit.

They call me an abomination. A mutant. A curse on their kind. I don’t let it bother me. Much. My name is Holly James, and what they say is true. I’m a freak of nature—a null. My mere presence zaps the magic from Others, rendering them powerless. That’s why they hate me. But here’s the kicker: I’ve found a way to profit from my lack of mojo. Whether it’s acting as a mystical wet blanket in a dispute between pyromancers or keeping hormonal shifters from changing during a sweet sixteen party, I provide a highly specialized service. For a hefty fee. When a young witch turns up dead, clutching an amulet cursed with black magic, my estranged grandfather asks for my help. In return for nullifying the necklace, Gramps promises to find my missing mother—a witch who vanished after my birth. Of course there’s a catch. He wants me to assist Cade McAllister, the arrogant sorcerer in charge of investigating the case. Cade resents my existence, let alone my attempts to help. Still, I’ll do whatever it takes to find my mom. For my own peace of mind I have to know what happened to her, and I won’t allow anything to get in my way. Not even this crazy, irrational longing I feel for a hot sorcerer with the sexiest scowl I’ve ever seen.

Some werewolves walk the world forever in search of their mates. Gabriel Danes was one of the lucky ones--Joy Sutton just sort of appeared in his path one night six years earlier. Unfortunately, she came along too soon, leaving him with a painful choice: succumb to temptation and rob a young girl of her innocence, or suffer through season after season until she'd experienced enough of the world to know what she would have to give up if she decided to accept his bite. Joy didn't need four years at a university in Miami to teach her anything about the world, but she went anyway because Gabriel Danes wanted a woman, not a girl...and because it was just too painful to watch him live his life around her while she yearned helplessly for what he wouldn't give. Now she's home, and she's done. Just done. But when Joy tracks Gabriel down to let him know she’s moving to Florida for good, his tightly-leashed control snaps—and Joy realizes she did learn something during four years of college. She learned how to claim her mate.
