Paranormal Thriller

The Stepford Florist by JT Lawrence

The Stepford Florist by Janita Lawrence

Jasmine is arrested for performing a bootleg vampire facelift in her modded-out steampunk caravan.

She’s thrilled, because it’s worked out exactly as she planned.

Jasmine has mastered moonlighting. She’s a steampunk inventor, a cosmetician, and a florist. And then there’s her real job: hacking evil corps and exposing dodgy clinics.

When Jasmine, the head of Alba-an underground biopunk organisation-is tipped off that something morally dubious is happening at the city’s most luxurious high-tech spa, she takes it upon herself to investigate, and discovers a whole lot more than she bargained for.

(Warning: Contains colorful language and sex.)

Fantasy

Verdant Magic by Aimee Easterling

Verdant Magic by Amiee Easterling

USA Today bestselling author Aimee Easterling’s new series is chock-full of “electric story telling” and “wild post apocalyptic world building.”

Ever since dragon fire killed her parents, Amber Gardener has resolved to protect her enclave of illegal magic users from the dangers of the outside world. So when a winged intruder lands in her garden, the witch’s initial impulse is to defend her neighbors using every weapon at her disposal…up to and including the use of deadly force.

But at the last moment, the invading dragon shifts into a mysterious yet handsome stranger whose calm nature prompts Amber to question everything she previously believed to be true. Too bad her childhood sweetheart has no such compunction against dealing with danger the quick and dirty way.

Enter a murderous dragon on the rampage, an unexplained fading illness, and a kind-hearted innocent kidnapped out of her bed. Can Amber abandon her post as protector and team up with her enemy in time to save people they both hold dear?

Dive into an exhilarating new adventure with this first in a series of interconnected standalones.

Reunion by John Hartness

Reunion by John Hartness

You can go home again, but sometimes you really, really shouldn’t.

Jessica Bates is a successful paranormal investigator with a new network TV deal, a boyfriend she loves, and no idea of the trouble she’s about to find herself right smack in the middle of.

Nobody told her the location of their latest episode and investigation site. Because they knew she’d never come with them if they did. Twenty years ago, Jessica’s high school burned to the ground, killing all her friends while she watched. Now there are reports of strange noises and odd activity in the abandoned school, and the town has hired Jess’s crew to figure out what is causing the disturbances.

What they find is worse than they ever imagined.
