 The Spawn of Lilith , Dana Fredsti - In la-la land, it pays not to be human. Vampires, succubae, trolls, elementals, goblins—studios hire anyone and anything that can take direction, be discreet, and not eat the extras. Human stuntwoman and struggling actress Lee Striga is a member of the legendary Katz Stunt Crew. They’re the best – and boast superhuman strength. Now it’s up to Lee to figure out who—or what—is killing the cast and crew on her new job. Especially when she goes from stuntwoman to lead role... and the next target.

They intend to spend some time alone together before he becomes the ruling duc (perhaps with her at his side). But Pierre finds himself set to inherit a mistrusting people with an uneasy history, and duties cannot be put off any longer. A fatal illness is spreading, he is being claimed by the fée, and someone has already tried to take his life. Though, with his being a Lord of Death, it will take much more to kill him.


Fire and Ashes, (Death Investigator Angela Richman Book 2), Elaine Viets - A 70-year-old womanizing financier is killed when his mansion goes up in flames, and  residents of the exclusive gated community blame the outsider, the victim's 20-year-old Mexican girlfriend, for the death.  Sifting through the ashes of a vicious crime - and the secrets of the privileged - Angela must use her forensic skills to get to the truth, and prevent an innocent woman from being burned.
