After Draven Delano fled his coven, he vowed he´d never take an innocent human´s life again. To survive on his own, he became a doctor, allowing himself easy access to blood bags and a means of survival without harming a soul. But an immortal can never stay in one place for too long. And he can never fall in love. When he moves to the sleepy town of Burn Falls, he thinks he´s found the perfect place to temporarily settle. Until he meets the one woman who could change everything.

As fate would have it, she begins a relationship with the only one who can protect her from the thing she fears the most. Until she finds out what Draven´s been hiding. Evil has chased Draven for eighty-six years. Soon, he´ll be forced to face those demons and break his vow—a decision that could save both him and Calla. Or it could kill them both. Forever.
Number-one USA Today and New York Times best-selling author Maya Banks continues her suspenseful and sizzling Slow Burn series with this fourth book - a mesmerizingly sexy tale of a strong, brilliant woman who encounters the one man who makes her lose all control. Eliza Cummings fought free of a monster who terrorized her when she was an innocent teenager and helped put him away for good. She took a job with Devereaux Security Services and devoted every hour to taking down the very thing she´d nearly become. No one, not even those closest to her, know her darkest shameful secrets. But now the killer has been set free on a legal loophole, and it´s only a matter of time before he comes for her. Eliza´s only choice is to run and lead the monster away from the people she loves. Wade Sterling has always lived by his own rules, a law unto himself who answers to no one. He´s never professed to be a good man, and he´s definitely not hero material. Wade never allows anyone close enough to see the man behind the impenetrable mask - but one woman threatens his carefully leashed control. He took a bullet for her, and the result was more than a piece of metal entrenched in his skin. She was under his skin, and nothing he did rid himself of the woman with the courage of a warrior and who thinks nothing of putting her life before others´. But when Wade sees a panicked and haunted Eliza, he knows something is very wrong, because the fool woman has never been afraid of anything. And when she tries to run, the primal beast barely lurking beneath his deceptively polished façade erupts in a rage. She may not know it, but she belongs to him. This time Eliza isn´t going to play the protector. She is damn well going to be the protected. And as long as Wade breathes, no one will ever hurt what is his. 1. Language: English.

There Be Monsters Here.... It´s not as great as you´d think, living in a tourist town that´s known as ´´the most magical place in America´´. Same boring high school, just twice as many monsters under the bridges and rival Families killing each other for power. I try to keep out of it. I´ve got my mom´s bloodiron sword and my slightly illegal home in the basement of the municipal library. And a couple of Talents I try to keep quiet, including very light fingers and a way with a lock pick. But then some nasty characters bring their Family feud into my friend´s pawn shop, and I have to make a call - get involved or watch a cute guy die because I didn´t. I guess I made the wrong choice, because now I´m stuck putting everything on the line for Devon Sinclair. My mom was murdered because of the Families, and it looks like I´m going to end up just like her.... 1. Language: English. Narrator: Brittany Pressley.

Another diverse collection of stories from the author of A Knife in the Back and YOU WILL BE SAFE HERE. In Coming Home, after the siege, Lily finds refuge in her favorite place: a pond a few miles outside of the city. There she is attacked and taken hostage by a lone enemy soldier. She thinks hes going to kill her, but he has something else in mind. In It Steals Things, years after finally escaping Partlow, Va, Ben returns to help an old friend who is going through a tough time. But Mike doesnt want help. He wants revenge. In The Legacy of the Monster Diego Tomas, an apartment building in a city deluged by the rising oceans becomes a battle zone between the last people on Earth. And finally, in Tophers Ton, the final chapter of the Topher Trilogy, the end of the world comes in a barrage of bombs, a rush of tsunami, and a hail of meteors. Topher, still recovering from his kidnapping by a deranged serial killer, manages to not only survive, but nearly rebuilds civilization. If it werent for Rasheed, the demented boy-god with a tank, or Nurse Smith, the deranged leader of a group of crazy doctors, or Liam Chris, a deranged despot seeking revenge, he might have been successful.
Rick Gullotti lives the good life. He fights fires, dates beautiful women - though none long enough so she casts wistful glances at jewelry stores - and has great friends. And thanks to helping out the elderly couple who own his building, his rent is low. But when concerns about their health lead him to contact their only son, his life starts getting away from him. Jessica Broussard has no interest in leaving sunny San Diego or her cushy corner office for Boston, but her father - who happens to be her boss - dispatches her to deal with the grandparents she´s never met. She´s unprepared for the frigid winter, loving relatives who aren´t the monsters she´s been led to believe, and the hot, scruffy firefighter who lives upstairs. At first Jessica is determined to get back to her comfortable life as quickly as possible. All she has to do is talk her grandparents into selling their monstrosity of a house and moving to a retirement community. But she underestimates Rick´s dedication - and his considerable charm. Nobody´s taking advantage of his friends on his watch, even if that makes the tempting Southern California girl with the long legs his adversary. Unfortunately for them both, the only thing more urgent than the matter at hand is their sizzling chemistry, and it´s quickly becoming too strong to resist. 1. Language: English.

Horror author C. Dennis Moore returns to the short story form with this latest collection, The Dichotomy of Monsters, 15 terrifying tales of things that aren´t what they seem. Moore´s reality will leave you questioning your own senses and doubting the proof right in front of your eyes. In ´´Reckoning´´, Jody returns to his old home after his mother´s funeral to find some of the memories he thought he´d left behind aren´t so quiet nor so forgotten. Fans of his haunted house novel, The Third Floor, will find Moore´s take on ghosts in this story to be anything but typical. In ´´Timesmiths´´, Moore ponders the question of time travel and what happens to the perceptions of those being affected when alterations are made. In ´´Broken Man´´, poor Mr. Sumner saw angels take away his dying wife, and now he thinks he can bring them back for him if he makes himself suffer enough. In the title story, an escaped Mr. Hyde sets out for America in search of a permanent cure to his weak alter-ego. But he soon discovers the real monsters are not quite as obviously recognized as he is. In ´´Monday´´, the one C. Dennis Moore calls ´´the best story I´ve ever written´´, Maddy has only one goal today: die. But an old custom and a deep-rooted sense of routine keeps her locked in an unending cycle, until she can figure out the key to breaking her pattern. These are just some of the 15 stories in The Dichotomy of Monsters, but each one offers its own unique view of hell and the monsters that dwell there. Leave your preconceptions at the door and let C. Dennis Moore show you just how beautiful monsters can be and, as in the story ´´The Garden´´, how monstrous the beautiful are. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Eric Burns.
