Dead men DO tell tales!

There’s no need to dig for treasure in this anthology of 10 short stories by today’s hottest fantasy authors. Stories include:

 

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. Playing Sherlock Holmes isn’t half as enticing as convincing Cassie to break her number one rule of not dating other vampires. 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. Penny is only twenty-four, seeking her lost sister, and hiding a secret as well. To save themselves, and save Dare’s people, they might have to risk letting their secrets go.   

 

No Scions for Old Men by Courtney Sloan – Fifty years after the Terrorist Wars of 2025, Barbados stands as a bastion of vampire, magical Obeah, and human hope alike. Vampire Queen Esme holds a treasure too tempting for any to pass up: a cure to the bestial madness born from vampiric long life. But when a group of South Americans seeking the cure crash onto the island, dragging an entire pirate fleet behind them, Esme must decide if a few refugee souls are worth the destruction of her people’s way of life.

 

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.

As the top investigative reporter for Global Daily, Jonathan travels all over the world. Three weeks in Tortola, covering the story of the disappearance of twelve women, sounds like heaven. After all, the island is one of the most beautiful in the world. He doesn’t have many leads. The women only have one thing in common. They all went missing from the same club—Consume. 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. But will she find him before his scheming sister and overly kind uncle do, and will Solange accept the changes Robert endured, and forgive the circumstances that force a final showdown?

 

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. Is the murderer an evil spirit? An animal? Or are the killings somehow related to the eight strangers that arrived from France on a ship where nearly all of the crew are dead?

Book 4
The Leader Who Rules Chaos, Rules the Realms…

Two years ago Loki, God of Mischief and Chaos, destroyed a large chunk of Chicago’s financial district and then vanished into thin air. He still has not been found. Odin, ruler of the Nine Realms, is desperate. To find Loki, he sends his son Thor on a dangerous quest to consult the all-seeing Norns. But Thor needs humanity’s help...

Loki’s former lover, veterinarian Amy Lewis, is carrying all of Loki’s memories--but missing some of her own. Hoping to keep Loki from Odin’s machinations, she agrees to help Thor on his journey.

Bohdi Patel’s memory was wiped by Loki’s mischief. He thinks Amy and Thor are both crazy to want anything to do with Loki. But he needs to find his parents, and he’s been told the Norns will answer any question--for a price.

When Chaos is the goal, only one thing is certain: Amy and Bohdi are about to get into worlds of mischief.

C. Gockel
When science meets Chaos, what could go wrong?

Bohdi Patel is keeping the revelation that he is Chaos incarnate a secret, and handling the revelation about as well as one would expect. He’s in a downward spiral: losing his lease, totaling his car, and trying to keep everyone he cares about at arm's length.

Veterinarian Amy Lewis is wondering what happened to the funny, flirty, curious Bohdi she knew in the land of the Norns. He’s become moody and sometimes cruel. She is definitely glad she didn’t become romantically entangled with him ... most of the time.

When tragedy strikes Amy’s beloved mutt Fenrir, and Odin strikes Bohdi’s best friend Steve, they have to work together again. Amy’s knowledge of science, Bohdi’s talents for theft, and both of their survival skills are put to the test. But more than Steve and Fenrir’s lives are at stake. Amy and Bohdi may unlock the key that saves mankind from the gods … or bring about the apocalypse.

Book 2
The second installment in award-winning, New York Times bestselling author Colleen Gleason's International Bestselling Gardella Vampire Hunter Series.

"...turns vampire stories—and romances—on their ear." —The Detroit News

"With its wonderfully witty writing, action-infused plot and sharply defined characters, Rises the Night is deliciously dark and delightfully entertaining." —The Chicago Tribune

"A tense plot line and refreshingly diverse supporting characters complete the package, giving series fans plenty to sink their teeth into--and plenty more to look forward to." —Publishers Weekly

"…Heart-stopping scenes and sexual tension. With numerous twists, [Gleason] leaves you hanging, eagerly awaiting the next installment." —Romantic Times

The saga of Victoria Gardella continues as the glorious nineteenth-century city of Rome gives rise to a new threat from the immortal undead....

Lady Victoria Gardella Grantworth de Lacy has been a vampire slayer for just over a year, balancing her life as a peer of Society with the dangerous role that takes her out on moonlit streets, stake in hand. She has learned brutal and heartbreaking lessons about the sacrifices that must be made in order to save humanity from the evil that secretly preys upon it, but she has not wavered in her vow to fight on.

Now, in Italy, a powerful vampire is amassing the power to control the souls of the dead. As Victoria races across Europe to stop what could be the most deadly army the Gardellas have ever faced, her unlikely companion is Sebastian Vioget--a man as tempting as he is untrustworthy.

But when Victoria discovers she has been betrayed by one of her most trusted allies, the truth will challenge all her powers as a Venator...and as a woman.

"This novel has enough dark, angst touches to it that I was utterly wrung out by the end. It is also so good that I couldn't wait to get online to see when the next in the series will come out...Not for the faint of heart, but the writing is wonderful and the characters really stand out vividly." —All About Romance

The Gardella Vampire Hunters series should be read in order to avoid spoilers.

The Victoria books are:
The Rest Falls Away
Rises the Night
The Bleeding Dusk
When Twilight Burns
As Shadows Fade

The complete series of five books is now available.
