New York Times bestselling author Gena Showalter begins a dark, sexy new series – Rise of the Warlords – with a fan-favourite character from her beloved Lords of the Underworld series, Taliyah Skyhawk. The ice maiden faces off with her greatest enemy, a villain brutal beyond imagining.
For centuries, Taliyah Skyhawk has prepared to become Harpy General, leader of the deadliest female army in existence. One of the requirements? Remain a virgin. But, for a chance to save her people, she must wed the fearless leader of the Astra Planeta, Alaroc Phaethon.
The time has come for Roc to sacrifice another virgin bride to his god. There has never been a woman alluring enough to tempt him from his path. No warrioress powerful enough to overcome his incredible strength. No enchantress desirable enough to make him burn beyond reason. Until now.
With the clock ticking, war between husband and wife ignites. Except Taliyah never expected the merciless king to challenge the future she once envisioned. She certainly never anticipated the thrill of their battles turning into games… The problem is, only one spouse can survive.

Haunted/Ghost Walk/The Vision (Harrison Investigation Series volume #1) by Heather Graham
Go back to where it all began! Before the Krewe of Hunters, there was Harrison Investigations. Available for the first time in a value box set, the first three stories in the series — thrilling paranormal romantic suspense from New York Times bestselling author Heather Graham.
Matt Stone doesn’t believe in ghosts. Although his home, a historic Virginia estate that dates back to the Revolutionary War, has seen some strange happenings lately. Pressured to get at the truth, he agrees to let Harrison Investigations explore. But he isn’t ready for beautiful, intriguing Darcy Tremayne, or the skeletons she’s about to discover. Because it’s much more than a simple mystery from the distant past — Melody House holds a very real and lethal danger, one that will cast Darcy into a struggle against the worlds of both the living and the dead.
As manager of a successful New Orleans haunted-tour company, Nikki DuMonde doesn’t scare easily. So a visit from one of her employees in the middle of the night doesn’t faze her, until she learns the woman was brutally murdered — at the exact time Nikki swears she was in her room. No one believes her except for Brent Blackhawk, a paranormal investigator desperately trying to forget his tragic past. When he realises ghosts are trying to reach out to Nikki, he knows that she, too, must listen to the dead…if she wants to keep living.
It seems like any other salvage dive — until Genevieve Wallace sees a vision of a dead woman in the water. A dead woman who opens her eyes and looks directly at her…but no one, including her diving partner Thor Thompson, believes her. Then a body washes up on shore, and everyone assumes this is what Genevieve saw. But she knows it’s definitely not the ghost she encountered, but another victim of the same brutal killer. With the threat of death coming closer, she and Thor somehow have to link a violent past with a present-day mystery…because if they don’t, the power of death will possess them, too.

Bound by oath and lost in desire for a man she cannot have, Liv is racing to save the child from a dark criminal underworld where secrets, lies, trauma and danger lurk around every corner, every touch and every kiss…
But more blood will be spilled before it’s over
Blood & Ash by Jennifer L Armentrout
Chosen from birth to usher in a new era, Poppy’s life has never been her own. The life of the Maiden is solitary. Never to be touched. Never to be looked upon. Never to be spoken to. Never to experience pleasure. Waiting for the day of her Ascension, she would rather be with the guards, fighting back the evil that took her family, than preparing to be found worthy by the gods. But the choice has never been hers.
The entire kingdom’s future rests on Poppy’s shoulders, something she’s not even quite sure she wants for herself. Because a Maiden has a heart. And a soul. And longing. And when Hawke, a golden-eyed guard honor bound to ensure her Ascension, enters her life, destiny and duty become tangled with desire and need. He incites her anger, makes her question everything she believes in, and tempts her with the forbidden.
Forsaken by the gods and feared by mortals, a fallen kingdom is rising once more, determined to take back what they believe is theirs through violence and vengeance. And as the shadow of those cursed draws closer, the line between what is forbidden and what is right becomes blurred. Poppy is not only on the verge of losing her heart and being found unworthy by the gods, but also her life when every blood-soaked thread that holds her world together begins to unravel.
