Jude Black was the deadliest Therian operative in North America . . . until his path collided with an enemy with golden eyes and a body that clouded his thinking.

Shapeshifter Jude Black, level six operative for the Therian Senate and their deadliest weapon, has served his superiors for ten years without question. He was raised to believe his job is one of the highest, most honorable occupations in the realm. Killing is what he does, and having each mission wiped from his memory is a non-issue . . . until his brother Garrett goes missing.

When it appears that the Senate's only concern is to make him forget the whereabouts of his only brother, Jude begins to question his loyalties. Then he meets the beautiful, hazel-eyed Letitia Hawkes, and his loyalty is put to the ultimate test. She is a werewolf, one of his race's sworn enemies. But she's being used by Eideroche Medical, the same people who made his brother disappear.

Jude's convinced Letitia is the key to the answers he desperately needs to find his brother. At least that's what he tells himself as he teams up with her to find out just what Eideroche is up to. But soon, Jude finds himself in the deadliest battle of his life. Because he's falling in love with Letitia. But by doing so, he might just be guaranteeing her death . . .

"The characters are vibrant . . . and an unexpected cliffhanger will leave readers eager for book three." --RT Book Reviews

"Fast-paced and filled with intrigue . . . " --Paranormal Romance Reviews

Tough vampire cop, Jess Vandermire, fights against her unholy brethren in New York City to protect the two men she loves more than life itself. But Jess is waging a personal war, too--to save the tiny shred of soul she has left. If she loses, so does the city . . .

Women all over NY are dying by exsanguination and every one of them bears a striking resemblance to Captain Jess Vandermire, who cannot account for her whereabouts at the time of the murders.

John Brittain is black ops and a vampire hunter serving under Jess, but their relationship is much more than professional. He withholds an incriminating piece of evidence found near a body until he can clear his lover of the crime.

Then there's Drago, who caters to a rich clientele at his exclusive club. He has a deadly secret--and a wealthy patron willing to pay $10 million just to have Jess . . .

NEW ENTRY IN THE BESTSELLING MONSTER HUNTER INTERNATIONAL SERIES BY DRAGON AWARD–WINNING AUTHORS LARRY CORREIA AND SARAH A. HOYT


When Owen Pitt and the rest of the Monster Hunter International crew are called away to mount a month’s-long rescue mission in a monster-infested nightmare dimension, Julie Shackleford—Owen’s wife and descendant of MHI founder Bubba Shackleford—is left behind. Her task: hold down the fort and take care of her new baby son Ray. Julie’s devoted to the little guy, but the slow pace of office work and maternity leave are starting to get to her. But when a routine field call brings her face-to-face with an unspeakable evil calling itself Brother Death, she’ll get more excitement than she ever hoped for.


Julie is the Guardian of a powerful ancient artifact known as the Kamaresh Yar, and Brother Death wants it. In the wrong hands, it could destroy reality as we know it. Julie would die before giving it up.


Then Ray goes missing, taken by Brother Death. The price for his safe return: the Kamaresh Yar. If Julie doesn’t hand over the artifact it means death—or worse—for baby Ray. With no other choice left to her, Julie agrees to Brother Death’s demands. But when you’re dealing with an ancient evil, the devil is in the details.


To reclaim her son, Julie Shackleford will have to fight her way through necromantic death cults, child-stealing monsters, and worse. And she’ll have to do it all before Brother Death can unleash the Kamaresh Yar.


It’s one woman against an army of monsters. But Julie Shackleford is no ordinary woman—she’s one tough mother!

Then a mysterious stranger shows up and offers to help. She discovers her entire existence has been leading up to the challenge ahead--a challenge that has insurmountable odds.

And if she doesn't win, every human on the planet will pay the price . . .
