In Which An Undead Finds Himself At Sea (In More Ways Than One) A Story of the Draculia Vampires by Colleen Gleason – The year 1802: When sexy, undead Raine St. Albans goes off to the Caribbean (not a great place for a vampire to be, considering the long, sunny days) on a mission to try and thwart the evil vampire Cezar Moldavi, he finds himself at the mercy of the female pirate captain Arial Bonny…in more ways than one.
A Vampire’s Life for Me by Nikki Jefford - Fane Donado’s always been a grab life by the teeth kind of vampire. When his alluring friend Cassie requests help investigating suspicious vamp deaths in the Caribbean Islands, Fane hops the first plane down.

But if it’s true that a vampire hunter’s trolling the islands, they’re all at risk.
Someday My Count Will Come by C. Gockel –Dare is an ancient Night Elf keeping secrets from his own kind and seeking a Night Elf that has gone renegade.

Midnight Escape by Jennifer Blackstream– Where do vampires send their criminals? Paradise.
Out for Blood, by Hailey Edwards - White sand beaches, fresh tropical drinks…and three exsanguinated bodies. So much for Marshal Ayer’s transfer to the island of St. Kitts being a vacation.
Enzili by Mark Henwick - The nineteenth century approaches, bearing the direst omens for the small British island of St. Mark's. Charles Tynes believes he has the solution to the problems, and his desperate plea for assistance from the influential Lord Willoughby-Lazaure seems answered when the earl's pale and uncannily beautiful daughter arrives.
But as people die and the slaves whisper of Enzili, the strange Voodou Goddess whose domain encompasses both good and evil, will Charles be able to face the true horror that lurks beneath the bright Caribbean sun?
Consume by Charity Parkerson - Jonathan thinks Cin is too perfect to be real. He’s right.

Fifteen minutes into visiting the club, Jonathan sees him, and the world slips away.
Dawn’s Justice by Phaedra Weldon – A message claiming Robert Guillot is not dead but alive in Havana, starts Solange on her own personal journey to learn the truth about what happened to her secret lover.

Ship of the Dead by Debra Dunbar - Adeyemi leads a band of rebel Maroons in the mountains of eighteenth-century Haiti, but one by one his men are found dead – bitten on their necks and drained of blood.

They’ve got five days to escape. Five days for Uriel to save these women—and five days for her to save the demon she’s beginning to think is just as much of a captive as they are.
Because saving them all is the only way she can atone for…something‑ atone, and win forgiveness for a past she can’t remember.

However, there's more of a battle ahead than Luce could possibly imagine. She may be an orphan without a past, but no one - including Luce herself - could ever be prepared for the truth of her dark, powerful destiny . .
