 Dark and Deadly: Eight Bad Boys of Paranormal Romance
By Jennifer Ashley, Alyssa Day, Felicity Heaton, Erin Kellison, Laurie London, Erin Quinn, Bonnie Vanak and Caris Roane
Eight hot paranormal romances by New York Times and USA Today bestselling authors. Alpha-male bad boys will fulfill your darkest, most deadliest desires in these stories about shifters, werewolves, vampires, magic, special powers and other realms. But only if you dare…

BODYGUARD by Jennifer Ashley
Elizabeth Chapman is saved from an armed attacker by a Kodiak bear who shifts into a tight-bodied, naked human male. Ronan takes Elizabeth to Shiftertown, becoming her 24/7 bodyguard. The mateless Ronan has adopted a houseful of orphaned Shifters--having grown up in foster care, Elizabeth is touched by his protectiveness. Ronan only wants to keep Elizabeth safe, but the sassy woman is triggering his long-buried need to mate.

He’s a warrior, hardened by years of protecting his town from vampire attack. She’s a garden witch who sees the world in shades of sunshine and delight. Opposites don’t only attract, they go supernova in this sizzling tale of magic and mayhem.

BEWITCH by Felicity Heaton
A vampire with a bloodstained past and a soul tainted with darkness, Payne is perfect in his self-control, never surrendering to his darkest desires. Now a beautiful witch in the shadowy fae underworld reawakens long denied hungers and tempts him with pleasure. When one incredible night of fulfilling their fantasies leads to more than just keeping a promise and saving a friend, will they be able to overcome the barriers that stand between them and forever?

DARKNESS FALLS by Erin Kellison
Agent Malcolm Rook is hunting for people with the rarest of talents—the ability to master dreams. He finds the undeniably gifted Jordan Lane, but she’s wary of mysterious Rook and resists his pursuit as long as she can. Yet the dreamwaters they enter are too exhilarating to resist, and attraction soon ignites electric passions. Delving too deep stirs a nightmare, one they must defeat, or be forever lost to darkness. 

ROGUE’S PASSION by Laurie London
Blaming himself for the death of a friend, Iron Guild warrior Asher Kane vows to bring those responsible to justice. After he’s hurt on a mission and nursed back to health by a beautiful yet mysterious woman, this dangerously sexy bad-boy finds himself falling for Olivia…even as he struggles to stay away. But stalking them on the streets of New Seattle is a cruel and vengeful evil—one that threatens to destroy them both…

Alex’s mission: Kill the hellhounds that have invaded earth and return to his home in the Beyond. But from the start, things go horribly wrong. The hounds are cunning and a human female witnesses their attack—she intervenes and saves Alex’s life. Now he must keep the alluring Lilly alive while fighting his desire for her. When passion flares, Alex risks all to protect her and defend the forbidden life he craves.

THE MATING HEAT by Bonnie Vanak
Werewolf Kara Mitchell fled with her brother Aiden to Montana after their alpha father punished her for kissing sexy omega werewolf Ryder Carrington. Left scarred by her father’s cruelty, Kara believes no one can love her. After killing his alpha to save the pack, Ryder now rules, but needs a mate. His blood runs hot for Kara. Ryder will do anything to claim her, even risk an all-out pack war that could cost them everything…

TRAPPED by Caris Roane
Mastyr Vampire Zephyr, a one-man fighting force, struggles to save the life of a woman who despises his warrior ways. She’s been a thorn in his side, but he has one goal: to keep her safe. For Alesia, however, she just wishes he’d leave her alone since she can never approve of his profession. She broke up with him months ago and wants to start a new life. The trouble is, he’s still the one man who can curl her toes.

Lilly sighed and looked back at the wounded man.  He sat on the bench, head lolled back against the wall and eyes closed.  She needed to move him to the couch, where he could lie down and she could attempt to patch him up.

“Alex,” she said, but his eyes didn’t open.  “Come on, Alex.  Stand up.  Let’s get you to the couch and then you can rest.”

His eyes opened, but they were unfocused.  Knowing she might not get more than that out of him, she sat beside him, slung his arm over her shoulder, and stood, forcing him up with her.  He weighed a ton, and she’d never have succeeded if he hadn’t roused enough to help.  They danced an awkward tango across the floor, listing from side to side.  The dogs helped, which meant they made every effort to trip them both.  By the time they reached the couch, she could do little more than maneuver and push.  He collapsed in a heap on the big, soft cushions.

“You still with me?” she asked as she swung his legs up.

She didn’t expect an answer, but he muttered, “Not dead, if that’s what you mean.”

Pretty much exactly what she’d meant.  She hurried back to the front door and locked it, checking the deadbolt twice.  Alex gave a dry laugh.

“That won’t stop anything.”

“Shut up,” she said.

In seconds, she had a fire going and some water boiling.  She hung her coat on the hook next to Alex’s and shoved her boots under the bench beside his.  It made her pause, the sight of the pairs.  Like they belonged together.  She tried to ignore the longing that sparked from nowhere.  She didn’t know this man and he certainly wasn’t the mate to her North Face boots.  According to him, he wasn’t even human.  With a scowl, she pulled Amy’s impressive first aid kit out of the closet and set it on the table in front of him.

Blood soaked his flannel shirt and carefully, she stripped him of it.  He helped with silent and grim determination, never looking away from her face as she revealed a broad, muscled chest, strong arms, and flat abdomen.  Necessary or not, she felt awkward with her fingers at his fly, more so when he lifted his hips so she could pull off his pants to give her access to the wound on this thigh.  It was impossible not to notice the ripple of muscle, the strip of flesh between his belly button and the elastic of his briefs.  A dark arrow of silky hair drew her eyes downward.

He might not be human…he might not even consider himself a man…but he sure as hell looked like one to Lilly.

She glanced at his face.  His eyes were shut, his breathing deep.

A large, angry bite stood out on his ribs.  Gently, she cleaned the wound with hot water and a soft cloth before putting disinfectant and a bandage over it.  Blood had splattered his abdomen, and with perhaps a little more attention to detail than needed, she cleaned that, too, smoothing the supple skin with her fingertips.

She glanced up again and found him watching her.  Her hand rested against his belly, where it had no business being.  Blushing so hard it hurt, she snatched it away.

“You said you weren’t a man,” she exclaimed and then wanted to cover her head with a blanket and die.

“Never said I wasn’t male,” he answered darkly and closed his eyes again.  “Give me a couple of hours and I’ll prove it.”

Lilly stared at him, mouth open, a whole host of conflict in her chest.  She cleared her throat.  “That won’t be necessary,” she said primly.

He gave a soft, rumbling laugh that made him groan.

After that, Lilly kept her hands busy in more appropriate ways.
