Overview
"Warriors of the Rift"
"Once a generation, the rift between the paranormal world and the human world opens, allowing supernatural entities to cross. Vampire, demon, or shapeshifter, they can save the world-or send it spiraling into chaos."
The next opening of the rift is coming-and its consequences will be deadly. A rogue group of human-hating preternaturals is planning an apocalyptic attack, but the Council of Preternaturals may have found the key to saving the world: Keira O'Brien, a fey with a long criminal record, whose empathic abilities once made her the queen of con artists. If she successfully infiltrates the dangerous faction, the sins of her past will be forgiven.
Keira isn't the only agent working against the rogue prets. Finn Evnissyen, a powerful demon with a dark lineage, is a hired assassin looking for a way out. If he stops the threat, he will finally earn his freedom. As the rift fast approaches, and danger escalates, Finn and Keira must discover if they're on the same side-or sleeping with the enemy . . .

A skillful blend of gritty urban fantasy and taut romantic suspense redeems this slightly flawed novel. Every 73 years, a rift briefly opens, allowing supernatural creatures to cross over and join human society. Then a rogue group of preternaturals gets hold of a machine that could keep the rift open indefinitely. The result will be chaos. Demon Finn Evnissyen, Lucifer’s son, and fey Keira O’Brien, Finn’s ex-lover, have been separately tasked with infiltrating the group and foiling its aims. Ex-grifter Keira has a mistake in her past she wants forgotten, while Finn is tired of being under his father’s demonic thumb. Mutual distrust doesn’t stop mutual passion from reigniting as they work toward their goal. Garner has created a fascinating world, ripe with conflict, drama, and sensuality. However, Keira’s neediness and insecurity overwhelm her strong, independent characteristics, and savvy readers will have no trouble figuring out the bad guy early on. Agent: Susan Ginsburg, Writers House. (Mar.)

Undercover lovers

Reunited lovers face danger and desire in Catherine Mann’s riveting Free Fall. When undercover Interpol agent Stella Carson is kidnapped while posing as one of a group of students visiting East Africa, Jose “Cuervo” James, an Air Force pararescueman (think Navy SEAL with additional medic skills), is sent in as part of the liberation team. But the attempt goes awry and the pair must hide out while awaiting a second try at extraction. Feelings flare between Jose and Stella, but the passionate fire can’t eliminate what stands between them: Jose’s certainty that his own childhood makes him a bad bet as a family man. Other ominous plot threads come together to uncover old secrets and reveal a betrayal that Jose and Stella might not survive. An expert blend of raw emotion and suspenseful thrills.

BEAUTY AND THE BEAST
Adventure, sizzling sex and scary creatures abound in Cynthia Garner’s return to her paranormal milieu, Heart of the Demon. Half-chameleon demon enforcer Finn Evnissyen makes a literal bargain with the devil: He will gain independence from his devilish employer if he infiltrates a rogue group of preternaturals (vampires, werewolves, shifters, demons and fey) determined to take over the human world. Unbeknownst to him, fey Keira O’Brien has been blackmailed into doing much the same thing. Finn and Keira were lovers in the past and the attraction still runs strong, but now they’re each dismayed to find that the other is loyal—or so they think—to this dangerous organization. Still,  their close proximity results in new romantic sparks, and they become enthusiastic, if distrustful, lovers. When the truth of their involvement with the bad guys comes to light, they have still more peril in the way of a happy ending. Will they manage to stop the rogues or will they lose their lives? Fast-paced action and imaginative world-building will entertain enthusiasts of supernatural romance.

TOP PICK IN ROMANCE
Julia London delivers a charming fish-out-of-water story in The Last Debutante, set in 1811. When Daria Babcock travels to Scotland from West Sussex, England, on a visit to her grandmother, the last thing she expects is to be kidnapped by the powerful laird of a Highland clan. But Jamie Campbell is sure he has good reason; he believes Daria’s grandmother stole a thousand pounds from his uncle, and he will take the girl as ransom until the money is repaid. Daria’s confinement in Jamie’s medieval-looking castle is not as harrowing as she feared. Not only does she find the countryside beautiful, but she begins to chip away at the Campbell family’s suspicion toward her. Jamie himself is fascinated by Daria’s grace and good humor under the circumstances, and soon they are falling for each other. But the laird isn’t free to marry whomever he wishes, and he’s torn between his heart and his duty toward the clan. Jamie is still wrestling with his choice when Daria’s friends and family arrive to secure her release—and a devastating scandal is revealed, further making romance between the pair impossible. This is a tender story peopled with memorable secondary characters and two culture-crossed lovers worth rooting for.
