There's a whole lot of "bonding" going on in this installment of the Parched Vampire Romance Novel Series. 

Clarity learns more of Baron Ze Feldis’ deep dark secrets. Will his honesty be what it takes for her to trust the power their bond completely? 

Zillael has come to the end of the road, and she must choose between her destiny and her heart. Or, are her heart and destiny one in the same?

Fawn gets more than she bargained for when her true bond turns up, and memories which had been snatched away start to resurface.

Glo is learning that the lifestyle of a vampire slayer isn’t all that grand. Will her bond with Finn be enough to convince her to continue therein? 

Finally, Tapeetha, the second sister, is forced to leave Enu for an Earth she abandoned hundreds of years ago. She’ll have to reconnect with her bond to stop Lario and the power of evil’s plan to make second-generation vampires invincible. However, Leto Danto, her brokenhearted bond, isn’t ready to so quickly forgive and forget.

"Light Speed," a novel featuring Adore a Navi is also included. Read about what happens them before they show up in Vanquish (Parched, Book 4).

When Adore, the first sister, is lured out of Enu, she finds herself in the crosshairs of the “white-haired Selell.” The diabolically evil, Lario Exgesis never thought he would succumb to the power of the bond, but he has. Will his feelings for Adore get in the way of his evil ambitions? Especially since she happens to be bonded with more than one vampire. 

* * *

Navi, the fourth sister, has gotten herself into a sticky situation. Surprisingly the one sister who knows how to call her on her BS has come to save her, and she brought her annoying new bond with her. Will Navi’s secrets and ulterior motives derail their mission and stop them from getting their hands on a powerful object before Lario claims it?

A sizzling romance from USA Today bestseller Ember Casey.

This wicked billionaire will do anything to get what he wants...and he's not afraid to play dirty.

Lily Frazer would do anything to save the Frazer Center for the Arts—even take on the infamous billionaire Calder Cunningham. When Lily breaks onto the Cunningham estate, she only wants to find and reason with Calder. (All right, all right, she wants to punch him in the face, too, but that's Plan B.) As it turns out, the arrogant billionaire is willing to give her the money he promised, but there's a catch: she must win it from him.

And the games he has in mind aren't exactly... innocent.

Lily isn't about to give up the money without a fight (or let some haughty bastard seduce her), but she quickly discovers that there might be more to the brooding Calder than she initially perceived. As their games of cat and mouse become increasingly intense, she suddenly finds herself confused by her own emotions. Can she deny her attraction long enough to win the money she needs?

His Wicked Games is a tale of devilish deeds, wild passions, and wicked romance. And it's currently FREE!

*WARNING: This book contains steamy scenes and an alpha billionaire who's too sexy for his own good.

Women.

They’ve always been my weakness. 

There’s a certain line a man shouldn’t cross to get the woman he’s always wanted—especially when that woman belongs to his best friend.

I crossed that line. And now I’ve lost everything that matters.

They say a man has to hit bottom before he rises to the top. I’ve hit bottom—but like a balloon filled with helium I’m working hard as hell to pick myself back up.

Then I meet Carter. She’s irresistible and way too good for me. I’m not ready for her—at least not yet. Plus she’s my buddy’s favorite cousin. I’ve made the mistake of crossing him once, and I sure as hell don’t want to cross him twice. So I’m keeping my distance. But as each day goes by, I’m finding it harder to resist her.

WINNER OF THE NEBULA AWARD FOR BEST NOVEL • Naomi Novik, author of the New York Times bestselling and critically acclaimed Temeraire novels, introduces a bold new world rooted in folk stories and legends, as elemental as a Grimm fairy tale.

HUGO AWARD FINALIST • NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY NPR | BuzzFeed | Tordotcom | BookPage | Library Journal | Publishers Weekly

“Uprooted is confidently wrought and sympathetically cast. I might even call it bewitching.”—Gregory Maguire, bestselling author of Wicked and Egg & Spoon

“Our Dragon doesn’t eat the girls he takes, no matter what stories they tell outside our valley. We hear them sometimes, from travelers passing through. They talk as though we were doing human sacrifice, and he were a real dragon. Of course that’s not true: he may be a wizard and immortal, but he’s still a man, and our fathers would band together and kill him if he wanted to eat one of us every ten years. He protects us against the Wood, and we’re grateful, but not that grateful.”

Agnieszka loves her valley home, her quiet village, the forests and the bright shining river. But the corrupted Wood stands on the border, full of malevolent power, and its shadow lies over her life.

Her people rely on the cold, driven wizard known only as the Dragon to keep its powers at bay. But he demands a terrible price for his help: one young woman handed over to serve him for ten years, a fate almost as terrible as falling to the Wood.

The next choosing is fast approaching, and Agnieszka is afraid. She knows—everyone knows—that the Dragon will take Kasia: beautiful, graceful, brave Kasia, all the things Agnieszka isn’t, and her dearest friend in the world. And there is no way to save her.

But Agnieszka fears the wrong things. For when the Dragon comes, it is not Kasia he will choose.

Praise for Uprooted

“Uprooted has leapt forward to claim the title of Best Book I’ve Read Yet This Year. . . . Moving, heartbreaking, and thoroughly satisfying, Uprooted is the fantasy novel I feel I’ve been waiting a lifetime for. Clear your schedule before picking it up, because you won’t want to put it down.”—NPR
