Rose Ridgewood can’t stand her father’s new employee. It isn’t just Hayden O’Conner’s attitude and criminal record that bothers her-it’s his odd, silver eyes and the fact that she can’t read him. It isn’t until she becomes a victim in a deadly game of chase that secrets are uncovered that alter not only her views of Hayden, but of modern humanity. As Rose learns what Hayden really is, her emotions take her closer to him…and closer to danger. When lives are threatened she’ll have to decide whether to stay safe at home in California, or follow what might be true love into the unknown.

Sydney Pierce has just met the guy of her dreams…just don’t tell her psycho boyfriend, Trevor.

With a gorgeous boyfriend, a thriving gymnastics career and a stellar academic record, anyone would assume that Sydney has it all. That’s precisely what the seventeen-year-old perfectionist wants you to believe, and she works hard to keep up the pretense. Especially now that there are cameras following her for a documentary on Olympic hopefuls.

When Grant, the charming new student, disrupts her carefully crafted routine, the cracks beneath her perfect façade begin to rise to the surface and despite Trevor’s objections to their friendship, she can’t stay away from him.

As her connection to Grant pulls her closer to him, the once lighthearted relationship with Trevor takes an intense and dark turn, forcing her into a position in which not only her happiness, but her safety is at stake.  Can Sydney learn to let go of everything she is clinging to in order to gain everything she has ever wanted, or will she realize her breaking point too late?

The Descendant by Kelley Grealis9780615612362_p0_v1_s260x420

Allison Carmichael wakes from a car wreck with no memory of the past three years. She doesn’t recall her husband’s death or how she alienated her friends, and she definitely doesn’t remember anything about her new boyfriend Vincent Drake – a charismatic man with a penchant for rare and unique possessions. In fact, the only things familiar to Allison are her seemingly common ailments – insomnia, lack of appetite, erratic body temperature – which have gone undiagnosed and are worsening.

But Vincent knows exactly who, and what, Allison is – a mortal descendant of the first vampire. He is a vampire who has watched over Allison and her ancestors since the Biblical times of Cain and Abel ensuring their secret is kept. Once he realizes Allison’s symptoms are accelerating and transforming her, he’ll stop at nothing to have her.

Vincent tells Allison that she is a descendant and the first of her kind to exhibit signs of vampirism. Her worsening symptoms mean that she must decide between risking her mortal death if she cannot control her symptoms or fully transforming into a vampire and damning her soul for eternity. A decision made even more difficult when Allison discovers that Vincent has manipulated her life, and everyone in it, so that he can have the one thing no one else in the world has – the first descendant-turned-vampire.

For sixteen-year-old FALLON BRAEDEN being on the run had been the easiest part of her life.

When you’re told you’re normal even though nothing about you is normal? Fallon must learn quickly just what she is before the evil chasing her finally gets what it wants… her blood.

The world depends on her not falling in love, not giving in. But what happens when the temptation becomes too great, when falling is her only option? Can she live
knowing the world will burn because his touch is the only thing keeping her alive?

Melanie has also found ‘courtly’ love with Will, Coach T’s handsome, ball-playing son. When Melanie is on the court, everything is perfect….until she is forced to face an opponent who doesn’t play by the rules.

Suddenly, all eyes are on Melanie, and it isn’t for her amazing free-throws. A man’s job, a girl’s reputation, and her boyfriend’s entire world now rest in Melanie’s hands. She has to decide: keep her secrets and protect her future, or put an end to the lies…and lose everything.
