Dragon's Desire by Cecilia Lane

Ruth West - Thursday, July 27, 2017

Whoever said happy endings were easy was a fool or a liar.

Cursed nearly a century ago by a demon he was hunting, Quinn Byrnes has waited impatiently to feel the sense of his mate in his head. After watching his brother settle down with a mate, a spark of hope ignites in Quinn when he finally feels the connection to his own woman. Following the instincts of his inner dragon, Quinn lands in London only to discover the woman destined to break his curse is working for his enemies.

Lily Delaney would do anything to guarantee her sister’s safety—including working as a bounty hunter for a powerful demon. When her latest hunt ends in failure, Lily finds herself face to face with a shifter who dumps equal amounts of desire and anger in her veins. Quinn is tall, tattooed, and his dazzling green eyes challenge her to take him as a mate even as he sets her life on fire.

Quinn’s presence unleashes unwanted demonic attention in the form of an ancient enemy that’s now turned his sights on Lily. But with her target in the wind and her sister on the chopping block as punishment, time is running out for Lily to launch a daring rescue. As their foes circle, Quinn and Lily orbit around a truth neither wants to admit: happy endings come with a price.

The Hundredth Queen by Emily R. King

Ruth West - Thursday, July 20, 2017

In Emily R. King’s thrilling fantasy debut, an orphan girl blossoms into a warrior, summoning courage and confidence in her fearless quest to upend tradition, overthrow an empire, and reclaim her life as her own.

As an orphan ward of the Sisterhood in the ancient Tarachand Empire, eighteen-year-old Kalinda is destined for nothing more than a life of seclusion and prayer. Plagued by fevers, she’s an unlikely candidate for even a servant’s position, let alone a courtesan or wife. Her sole dream is to continue living in peace in the Sisterhood’s mountain temple.

But a visit from the tyrant Rajah Tarek disrupts Kalinda’s life. Within hours, she is ripped from the comfort of her home, set on a desert trek, and ordered to fight for her place among the rajah’s ninety-nine wives and numerous courtesans. Her only solace comes in the company of her guard, the stoic but kind Captain Deven Naik.

Faced with the danger of a tournament to the death—and her growing affection for Deven—Kalinda has only one hope for escape, and it lies in an arcane, forbidden power buried within her.

Secondborn by Amy A. Bartol

Ruth West - Friday, July 14, 2017

Firstborns rule society. Secondborns are the property of the government. Thirdborns are not tolerated. Long live the Fates Republic.

On Transition Day, the second child in every family is taken by the government and forced into servitude. Roselle St. Sismode’s eighteenth birthday arrives with harsh realizations: she’s to become a soldier for the Fate of Swords military arm of the Republic during the bloodiest rebellion in history, and her elite firstborn mother is happy to see her go.

Televised since her early childhood, Roselle’s privileged upbringing has earned her the resentment of her secondborn peers. Now her decision to spare an enemy on the battlefield marks her as a traitor to the state.

But Roselle finds an ally—and more—in fellow secondborn conscript Hawthorne Trugrave. As the consequences of her actions ripple throughout the Fates Republic, can Roselle create a destiny of her own? Or will her Fate override everything she fights for—even love?
