Fury of Seduction (Dragonfury
By Coreene Callahan

Successful landscape designer Tania Solares prides herself on living by
her own terms, relying on no man to provide for her. But her carefully
controlled life takes a turn for the extraordinary when her inquiry into the
disappearance of her best friend thrusts her between two warring factions of
dragon-shifters. Suddenly Tania’s survival depends on Mac, a newly initiated
dragon-warrior who will break every rule to keep her safe.

Now that Tania knows the truth about Dragonkind, returning to her old
life is too grave a risk. Ivar, leader of the Razorbacks, plots to decimate the
human race, and Tania is just the tool he needs. Despite the danger, Mac cannot
deny her a choice: Trade the independence she’s fought so hard to achieve for
safety in a magical world, or turn her back on the man she’s grown to love in
order to reclaim a freedom that might not last? It is an impossible choice. And
yet a sacrifice must be made…

real—and each of us may be one—in this all-new paranormal suspense novel from
#1 New York Times bestselling author Christopher Pike.

Heading off for a weekend in Las Vegas with
her friends, Jessie Ralle has only one worry—how to make it through the road

But what Jessie doesn’t realize is that Jimmy
is the least of her problems.

In Las Vegas she meets Russ, a mesmerizing

Jessie wants to know his secret, and in response, alone in his hotel room, he
teaches her a game that opens a door to another reality.

To Witch World.

Suddenly Jessie discovers that she’s stumbled
into a world where some people can do the impossible, and others may not even
be human. For a time she fears she’s lost her mind. Are there really witches?
Is she one of them?

up another classic edge-of-your-seat thrill ride that keeps you guessing right
until the last page.


Rector “Wreck ‘em” Sherman was orphaned as a
toddler in the Blight of 1863, but that was years ago. Wreck has grown up, and
on his eighteenth birthday, he’ll be cast out out of the orphanage.

 And Wreck’s problems aren’t merelyabout
finding a home. He’s been quietly breaking the cardinal rule of any good drug
dealer and dipping into his own supply of the sap he sells. He’s also pretty
sure he’s being haunted by the ghost of a kid he used to know—Zeke Wilkes, who
almost certainly died six months ago. Zeke would have every reason to pester
Wreck, since Wreck got him inside the walled city of Seattle in the first
place, and that was probably what killed him.Maybe it’s only a guilty
conscience, but Wreck can’t take it anymore, so he sneaks over the wall.

The walled-off wasteland of Seattle is every
bit as bad as he’d heard, chock-full of the hungry undead and utterly choked by
the poisonous, inescapable yellow gas. And then there’s the monster. Rector’s
pretty certain that whatever attacked him was not at all human—and not a
rotter, either. Arms far too long. Posture all strange. Eyes all wild and
faintly glowing gold and known to the locals as simpley “The

In the process of tracking down these
creatures, Rector comes across another incursion through the wall—just as
bizarre but entirely attributable to human greed. It seems some outsiders have
decided there’s gold to be found in the city and they’re willing to do whatever
it takes to get a piece of the pie unless Rector and his posse have anything to
do with it.

be or not meant to be . . . that is the question.

It’s one thing to fall head over heels into a puddle of hazelnut coffee, and
quite another to fall for the—gasp—wrong guy. Straight-A junior Julia may be
accident prone, but she’s queen of following rules and being prepared. That’s
why she keeps a pencil sharpener in her purse and a pocket Shakespeare in her,
well, pocket. And that’s also why she’s chosen Mark Bixford, her childhood
crush, as her MTB (“meant to be”).

But this spring break, Julia’s rules are about to get defenestrated (SAT word:
to be thrown from a window) when she’s partnered with her personal nemesis,
class-clown Jason, on a school trip to London. After one wild party, Julia
starts receiving romantic texts . . . from an unknown number! Jason promises to
help discover the identity of her mysterious new suitor if she agrees to break
a few rules along the way. And thus begins a wild goose chase through London,
leading Julia closer and closer to the biggest surprise of all: true love.

Because sometimes the things you least expect are the most meant to be.

The Last Man by Vince Flynn

An invaluable CIA
asset has gone missing, and with him, secrets that in the wrong hands could
prove disastrous. The only question is: Can Mitch Rapp find him first?

Joe Rickman, head of CIA clandestine
operations in Afghanistan, has been kidnapped and his four bodyguards executed
in cold blood. But Mitch Rapp’s experience and nose for the truth make him
wonder if something even more sinister isn’t afoot. Irene Kennedy, director of
the CIA, has dispatched him to Afghanistan to find Rickman at all costs.

Rapp, however, isn’t the only one looking for
Rickman. The FBI is too, and it quickly becomes apparent that they’re less
concerned with finding Rickman than placing the blame on Rapp.

With CIA operations in crisis, Rapp must be
as ruthless and deceitful as his enemies if he has any hope of finding Rickman
and completing his mission. But with elements within his own government working
against both him and American interests, will Rapp be stopped dead before he
can succeed?

who’s going to be lucky in love.
