The grim reaper took a vacation…

Now all hell is breaking loose.

With an existential crisis looming over his head, Asher needs a break from reaping souls. But when he leaves his door to the underworld unattended, one escaped ghost threatens to turn the French Quarter into a haven for the hell-bound.

Oh, and that crisis he was trying to escape? Her name is Jasmine Lee, and she could be the death of him.

The literal death of Death. Yep. You heard that right.

There’s no such thing as too dead when it comes to necromancer Jasmine Lee. She’s never met a ghost she can’t tame, but when a thousand ornery spirits descend upon New Orleans, her secret weakness is a recipe for phantasmal disaster.

Holy ghost guts. She’s in trouble.

The unfairly hot reaper is the last person Jasmine wants to work with. But if she doesn’t help Asher wrangle the lost souls back to the underworld, there will be hell to pay.

Crimson Oliver is a bad witch.

She’s not wicked, but every spell she tries to cast goes awry in one way or another. After her last screw-up, the high priestess has threatened to bind her powers and turn her human for good.

Crimson’s solution? Challenge the priestess to a battle of magic she can’t possibly win.

Not without a miracle, anyway.

Enter hotter-than-hellfire demon Mike Cortez. He’s a devil’s advocate who can make anyone’s dreams come true…for a price. He’s had his eye on the seductive witch for a while, and Satan is in the market for a new assistant.

But Mike wants to date her, not damn her.

When he accidentally makes a deal condemning Crimson to an eternity of satanic servitude, they’ll have to go to hell and back to outsmart the devil and save the witch’s soul.

Sophie Burroughs is determined to be a witch. Her grandmother was a witch. All the other supes say she smells like a witch, but she can’t cast a spell to save her life.

Sprouting fur is so not on her to-do list.

But when a smokin’ hot werewolf bites her and then accuses her of crimes against his pack, she has until the next full moon to prove him wrong and stop his magic from transforming her into a wolf.

A romp in the sack would be a nice bonus, too.

Trace Thibodeaux didn’t mean to bite Sophie. The red wolves have been cursed, she’s the prime suspect, and if he wants to keep his rank in the pack, he has to end her magic by any means necessary.

But that doesn’t include sheathing his sword in a witch’s scabbard.

He’s gotten into bed with the enemy before, and that’s a mistake he’ll never make again.

Or will he?

The Ghost and the Graveyard – Genevieve Jack

My Brief Synopsis:
Grateful Knight is betting it all on a fresh start – one she doesn’t really have a choice about. Left utterly destitute by her most recent failed relationship, she’s left with the choice of declaring bankruptcy or taking free rent in a house in the middle of nowhere that her realtor father cannot seem to sell, she chooses the latter. She always does the most responsible thing she can.

And that’s about to bite her in the ass.

Pulling into a town of 200, now 201, Grateful nearly crashes her Jeep at the sight of the local graveyard’s caretaker as a crazy daydream takes over out of nowhere. Determined to avoid men until she’s back on her feet, Grateful tries to keep her distance from the super hot (cover model level) Rick, but the very first night he shows up at her door with a stinking bouquet, she can’t seem to keep her hands, or lips, off of him.

The house has secrets, and those secrets want Graceful to learn them. When an angry ghost comes flying at her screaming for her to get out, Grateful flees to the only other person she knows, Rick, but what she sees there is too much for her brain to handle and she passes out cold.

Forced to believe in the unbelievable, face a relationship with a man she doesn’t know but who has known her for lifetimes, and possibly accept a title she isn’t sure she wants, Grateful’s strength, sense of self, and responsible nature will all be put to the test.

As she tries to grasp everything around her, will the secrets and truths be too much for her to handle? Can she accept all of it, or will she turn her back and leave Red Grove, NH all together?

Switching Hour – Robyn Peterman

My Brief Synopsis:
Zelda is a witch with a problem.  She just finished a stint in magical prison for killing her familiar by “accidentally” running him over with her car… three times.  As she and her cellmate prepare to join the free world again, ancient and insanely powerful Baba Yaga appears with missions they have to complete if they don’t want to become mortal come All Hallows Eve.

The problem? Well, there’s more than one…
The only direction Zelda receives is to go to her recently deceased aunt’s house.
Said house is in “Asscrack, West Virginia.”
An aunt she didn’t even know she had and was apparently killed “violently.”
Her mission would take place there, but she was never told what she had to do to pass.

Now stuck in a beautiful old Victorian house, alone with her revived familiar, Zelda finds herself inundated with injured animals who turn it to be shifters, including one sexy-as-hell wolf alpha.

Can Zelda figure out and complete her task in time or will Baba Yaga follow through on her threat?
Can she open her heart to the people in this small town who need her so desperately, or will her past keep her heart locked up tight?

Can she even keep herself alive to try?
