Demon crypts. Vampire lairs. Glowing angels. Sexy sirens.
The stuff of fiction. Or so Winn Thomas
always thought. Since being accepted
into the fold of the supernatural, he knows better. None of what he imagined is
true, but everything he feared is, and binding himself to his Changeling
girlfriend until her nineteenth birthday will give him an education far beyond
what he’d get at his human high school. Luckily,
Winn’s not giving up, he won’t back down, and he definitely isn’t going to run
away with his tail between his legs. After all, only werewolves have tails.
Right? In this, the second of the 19th
Year trilogy, Winn’s facing the challenge of one lifetime. If he doesn’t learn
the truth about mythological creatures, his girlfriend Mac Thorne won’t either.
That means, in six months, when she chooses her final form, she won’t know what
to pick. Winn, though, has his own ideas
about Mac’s final selection—plans she knows nothing of. He intends to have her pick human. Whether she
can or not.

Colton Nelson was 28 when he won the Texas Lottery and went
from ranch hand to ranch owner overnight. When women started lining up wanting
some of his millions, even going so far as to drug his beer, his family asks
the lovely new ranch assistant to help out by pretending to be his girlfriend.
They make her an offer she can’t refuse, so even though she doesn’t like it one
bit, Laura agrees to help. Laura Baker and her sister, Janet, had been raised
in foster homes. Though she was the younger of the two, Laura was always
bailing Janet out of trouble. Janet thinks Laura should take advantage of the
billionaire cowboy but Laura is getting to know Colton intimately and she
doesn’t give a damn about his money. True love isn’t for sale.

When mechanical genius Emily is kidnapped by rogue
automatons, Finley Jayne and her fellow misfits fear the worst. What’s left of
their archenemy, The Machinist, hungers to be resurrected, and Emily must
transplant his consciousness into one of his automatons—or forfeit her friends’
lives. With Griffin being mysteriously
tormented by the Aether, the young duke’s sanity is close to the breaking
point. Seeking help, Finley turns to Jack Dandy, but trusting the master
criminal is as dangerous as controlling her dark side. When Jack kisses her,
Finley must finally confront her true feelings for him…and for Griffin. Meanwhile, Sam is searching everywhere for
Emily, from Whitechapel’s desolate alleyways to Mayfair’s elegant mansions. He
would walk into hell for her, but the choice she must make will test them more
than they could imagine. To save those
she cares about, Emily must confront The Machinist’s ultimate creation—an
automaton more human than machine. And if she’s to have any chance at
triumphing, she must summon a strength even she doesn’t know she has….

A dark and tender post-apocalyptic love story set in the
aftermath of a bloody war. In a city where humans and Darklings are now
separated by a high wall and tensions between the two races still simmer after
a terrible war, sixteen-year-olds Ash Fisher, a half-blood Darkling, and
Natalie Buchanan, a human and the daughter of the Emissary, meet and do the
unthinkable—they fall in love. Bonded by a mysterious connection that causes
Ash’s long-dormant heart to beat, Ash and Natalie first deny and then struggle
to fight their forbidden feelings for each other, knowing if they’re caught,
they’ll be executed—but their feelings are too strong. When Ash and Natalie
then find themselves at the center of a deadly conspiracy that threatens to
pull the humans and Darklings back into war, they must make hard choices that
could result in both their deaths.

What eighteen year old Mac Thorne doesn’t know will probably
kill her. In exactly eight months, five days, three hours and thirteen minutes,
Mac has to choose what she’ll be for the rest of her life. She has no choice
but to pick. As a Changeling, it’s her birthright. To Mac, it’s a birthchore.
Like going to school with humans, interacting with humans, and pretending to be
human during the pesky daylight hours. Once darkness descends, Mac can change
into any supernatural form that exists-which makes her as happy as she can be.
That is, until Winn Thomas, the biggest geek in her senior class, figures out
there’s more to what hides in the dark than most are willing to acknowledge. In
this first of the 19th Year Trilogy, Winn might know more about Mac than even
she does, and that knowledge could end their lives, unless Mac ensures the
powers-that-be have no choice but to keep him around.
