Sera’s Dragon (Fire Mates Book 1)

by Lexxie Couper

Finding your fire mate is easy. Convincing your fire mate she is fated to be yours…not so much! Soar with the dragons of Australia in Sera’s Dragon from awarding winning erotic paranormal romance author Lexxie Couper. Book 1 of her Fire Mates series will keep you turning the pages of this contemporary paranormal suspense.

Life isn’t easy for a modern-day dragon shifter. Unlike those wuss werewolves, dragons can’t just shift and go for a run through the nearest forest. They can’t go flying on a whim. Forget about scared villagers slinging arrows; these days it’s Neighborhood Watch zealots with AK-47s. Then there’s the whole sex issue. Try telling the little cutie at the local Starbucks that a soul-shattering orgasm might end in bed flambé. No, being a dragon shifter kinda sucks. And for Tyson, it’s even worse–because he’s suddenly in heat.

Bad news for the stranger he spies running along Bondi Beach.

Ty instantly recognizes Sera as his mate. Now he has to convince her, while also dodging the psychopathic dragon hunter on his tail. Scorching sexual persuasion should do the trick. Hopefully. Because if Ty doesn’t join with his Fire Mate before his heat cycle finishes, bad things will happen. Lots of bad things.

This erotic paranormal suspense contains dragons, shapeshifters, werewolves, and adult themes. Sera’s Dragon is not intended for readers under the age of 18.

Sky Ghosts: The Night Before – A Sky Ghosts short story (Urban Fantasy series for adults)

by Alexandra Engellmann

For centuries, Sky Ghosts have been hiding their differences from humans, living among them in secret. Their powers, skills, and the gift of flight turned them into the best protectors the human elite could ever have. But for every one of them who believes in fair work and duty, there are ten more who use their power to prey on the weak and avoid justice. They’re called Sky Beasts, and the war between them and the New York Sky Ghosts Headquarters has reached a fevered pitch.

Patricia aka Pain is known as the “kill first, ask questions later” kind of girl. An urban legend at twenty-one, she helps to secure the Headquarters’ future in her own way – by slaughtering Beasts in between working bodyguard jobs. When a certain gang leader resurfaces on the gloomy Brooklyn outskirts, she makes a plan, which includes her big sword, her best friend, and good old improvisation.

There’s only one minor detail – it all sounds too good to not be a trap.

Taki is an ambitious Polaris stuck with the dregs of his kind in a squad named Tirefire the Lesser. Though career suicide might be bearable in the right company, his new companions are anything but. The sniper despises him, the man-at-arms is profoundly depressed, and his beautiful captain has a penchant for beating her underlings.

As the invading horde draws closer, this squad of defectives must band together despite the long odds against them. But with Imperial assassins out for their blood and treachery from within their own ranks, survival will come with a high price.

The Very Best of Tony Richards

by Tony Richards

Tony Richards (born 1956, just outside of London, England) began his career as a science fiction writer, before a series of his stories in the Pan and Fontana Books of Horror and The Fontana Book of Great Ghost Stories caught the public’s attention. He has since been a regular contributor to Weird Tales, Cemetery Dance magazine, The 3rd Alternative, Black Static, The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction, and numerous anthologies and smaller magazines. His first supernatural novel, The Harvest Bride, was shortlisted for the HWA Bram Stoker Award, and he has since published some dozen others.

He has continued to work in other genres as well, contributing to Isaac Asimov’s SF Magazine and – very regularly – to Alfred Hitchcock’s Mystery Magazine. His first crime novel, The Desert Keeps Its Dead, appeared in 2014, and a second – The Tribe – is due out late in 2016. He has penned enough short fiction to fill seven collections, and his third – Going Back – made the shortlist for the British Fantasy Awards. Stories of his have seen inclusion in The Mammoth Book of Best New Horror, Stephen Jones’ Great Ghost Stories (the best fiction from the Fontana Book), and The Best of Cemetery Dance.

He keeps on writing to this day in a wide variety of styles, and his Raine’s Landing supernatural adventure novels on Kindle have attracted a cult following. This book contains no less than 38 handpicked stories – horror, ghost, dark fantasy, mystery, crime, sf, fusion fiction, and even paranormal romance – representing the best of his work.
