"Reading a Lina Gardiner book is like riding an out-of-this-world roller coaster with your favorite people in the world." --Joyce Lamb, USA Today bestselling author

"Lina drops crumbs of information like Gretel dropping crumbs to find her way home; instead of home, though, we are led to the startling denouement so smoothly, we are left gasping."-BittenbyBooks.com

"The lead couple is a fascinating pair . . . they make a formidable team as they battle killer vampires . . . fans will appreciate the adventures of Jess Vandermire, vampire hunter."--Harriet Klausner, Alternate Worlds

For decades, Jess Vandermire, has been fighting the city's biggest threat--deadly hunters in the night. But with John 'Britt' Brittain, by her side, there's nothing she can't handle. That is, until now. Suddenly...

The vampires Jess and Britt are hunting aren't acting like normal bloodsuckers. They're braver, smarter...and harder to kill.

The Vatican has ordered Jess's brother, Father Regent Vandermire, to save the soul of a massive, bloodthirsty creature. But his prayers aren't working. And if the monster gets much bigger, the whole city will need them.

Her beloved Britt is once again in her life. But until he understands his newfound powers, he won't touch her. Because there's a good chance his love might kill her...

Jess quickly realizes she and Britt aren't powerful enough to handle the upcoming challenge alone. There's only one man who can help--evangelist Malcolm Fisk. Too bad they can't trust him . . .

Lina Gardiner, award-winning author of the Jess Vandermire, Vampire Hunter Series, has writing in her blood. Her books have been well received by such reviewers as Kirkus Reviews and USA Today's HEA blog, including a 4.5-star rating from RT Book Reviews and a nomination for a Romantic Times Reader's Choice Award. On the home front, Lina lives in New Brunswick, Canada, a hot spot for legendary ghosts, tall tales and odd happenings, which probably add to her love of a good mystery. The spooky stories her grandfather told his grandchildren in the "parlor" when their grandmother wasn't paying attention didn't hurt either...

If Ellie Locke dies, so does her sister, so when Ellie is murdered by a water god, it's a no-brainer to cheat death by accepting a deal from a stranger with the power to freeze time…until she discovers he has just set her up as a target for sociopathic serial killer with excellent magical skills.


Her only chance to survive her new job as an agent in a magical crime-fighting organization is her partner, a deliciously sexy half-demon who needs to stay alive as badly as she does. Neither of them has the magical ability to defeat a sociopath who has already killed seventy-six of their predecessors, but who needs skills when you have incentive?


Smoke, shadows, a hostile demon dad from the beyond, and highly paid assassins sent by her loving parents make things a little complicated for Ellie and her new partner, but what's a pair of breasts and an intimate moment for, if not to save themselves and the world?


And this is just the start.


NOTE: Do you see the gold medallion on the cover? That means this book contains Super Secret Bonus Scenes, which are extremely cool.

One foretold love deserves a second chance…

Haunted by dreams of a lover who takes the form of a mythical dragon, Eileen Grosvenor searches for the truth. She never expects to find a real dragon shape shifter, let alone one who awakens her passion and ignites memories of her own forgotten past.

Erik Sorensson is focused on leading the Pyr to triumph over the Slayers, even if it costs him his life. When an ancient relic that can turn the tide of the battle reveals itself, Erik knows he has to retrieve it from Eileen’s possession. But when he tries to do so, he’s shocked by an incredible firestorm that compels him to confront the truth about Eileen’s identity. Her presence reminds him of mistakes he’s determined not to repeat, and Erik is forced to make a choice: duty or love.

Only by unlocking the secrets of the past can Erik and Eileen fulfill the final prophecy of the Pyr. Can they face their deepest fears and claim their destined love in time to defeat the Slayers?

“Second chances are a key theme in this latest Dragonfire adventure. Cooke keeps the pace intense and the emotions raging in this powerful new read. She’s top-notch, as always.”—Romantic Times
