As you might imagine, with so many publications this year, there are also a lot of gorgeous covers to share. I’m delighted to reveal the covers of the Bloodbound serial (first part coming out Feb. 14), Red Queen (April 10), Fortune (Arcanium Book 1, May 15), and “Intervention” from the Wild After Dark Anthology (May 22, single August 21).
As if wandering the streets in bloody clothes after losing her memory isn’t bad enough, Julia’s been kidnapped by vampires, then presented to Nathan, high priest of Dominion.
Nathan’s not interested in a bleeder, perfectly content with fellow priest Lucas as his companion, lover, and willing servant. However, when Lucas offers her to him, Julia’s lack of fear and endearing confusion intrigue him.
With nowhere else to go without her memories, Julia accepts his offer and embarks on a sensual but deadly journey into the world of Dominion and its arrogant, esoteric elite…as well as the darkness of her own desires and the mystery of her past.
In her Court, a black market organization that specializes in magical artifacts and antiquities, Eden Farrow rules with an iron fist and a steel-boned red corset.
Some of her employees want her to transition into more traditional criminal commerce, but Eden—also known as the Red Queen for her ruthlessness and the Queen of Hearts for her uncanny ability to steal the hearts of men after one night in bed with her—refuses to budge. She prefers a cleaner, nobler kind of illegal activity.
She’s also a vampire with a taste for the gothic and theatrical, and she’s used to getting her way.
All that changes when another vampire and his werewolf companion invade her territory. She brings Antony and Luca in, preparing to torture them mercilessly before forcing them to submit to her bite.
But they aren’t like other men.
After her jealous boyfriend makes an angry, careless wish, Maya DeLuca finds herself trapped in a traveling demonic circus at the mercy of a devious jinni, Bell Madoc.
Among voluntary human oddities and demons masquerading as humans, Maya joins the other lost souls of Arcanium who suffer in perpetual purgatory under the weight of their wishes. Kitty the Bearded Lady, contortionist Valorie, aerialists Seth and Lars, and conjoined twins Joanne and Jane are just a few of her strange new companions, all making the best of a cursed situation under the rule of Bell and a sadistic Ringmaster.
But Maya’s not even cursed because of her own wish, which means she still has three for Bell to twist at his whim. He might be fond of her, but that doesn’t mean she’s safe from his endlessly inventive, wicked imagination. He may twist her wishes for his own pleasure. Or he may just give her what she wants…which could be even worse.
When Emily’s husband, Land, calls her to come to the warehouse district at sunset, at first she thinks it’s just another job for their para-extermination company. Then he tells her that they’ve finally caught Matt, the third member of their team, who was bitten by a werewolf a few weeks ago and has been missing ever since.
Emily races to the warehouse. She and Land plan to reassure him that they’ll provide all the help that he needs and that he doesn’t need to run away from them. They’re no strangers to the supernatural, after all.
What she arrives to, however, is Matt wild in his cage, a creepy vampire duct-taped to a pipe, Land covered in blood from a bite mark on his neck, and not a single easy answer in sight.
I hope you will join me on this journey into myriad new terrains, and I’m hoping you enjoy these stories as much as I do.
