Haunted Attraction by Marla Holt haunted attraction cover

Who knew unexplained footsteps and a haunted house could lead to such an unlikely attraction?

Jess Lewis doesn’t have time to wait for the contractor. The more delays she runs into with this bed and breakfast, the less time she has for that too. And why does the contractor have to look like he belongs in a hot construction worker calendar? Being late for her next appointment and being forced to come to terms with her bisexuality is too much to handle on only one cup of coffee.

Matthew Zimmerman is a contractor by day, mystery author by night. When his new client is identical to the femme fatale in his books, and just as surly, Matthew has trouble remembering that Jess ended a relationship with a woman. But then they keep hearing mysterious footsteps in the house, he realizes there might be more going on under the surface, both with Jess and the house.

Jess and Matthew have to question what they’re seeing, hearing, and feeling on their quest to find out what’s haunting the house. Or are those ghost investigations just an excuse to give into that tempting attraction?

Haunted attraction is a slow-burn paranormal romance with a bisexual heroine, just the right amount of spooky, and a guaranteed happily ever after. Get cozy with this steamy haunted house romance from Marla Holt today.

Just when I start to feel safe again, Hudson is back with a vengeance. He insists there are secrets I don’t know about, threatening to drive a wedge between Jaxon and me forever. But far worse enemies are at our doorstep.

The Circle is caught in a power play and the Vampire Court is trying to drag me out of my world and into theirs. The only thing Hudson and Jaxon agree on is that leaving Katmere would mean my certain death.

And not only am I fighting for my life, but now everyone else’s is at stake—unless we can defeat an unspeakable evil. All I know is that saving the people I love is going to require sacrifice.

Maybe more than I’m able to give.

Dusk Before Dawn by Fiona Davenportdusk before dawn cover

Releases October 12, 2020

Kieran Bancroft has spent almost a thousand years saving humans from evil vampires. Protecting potential consorts from nightwalkers gave Kieran something to focus on other than his dwindling hope that he’d ever find the one who was meant to be his.⁠

Thana Fernsby had no idea vampires existed. Not until her aunt sprung an arranged marriage on her, and she went running into the night. Thana ended up at the door of a daywalker–the good kind of vampire that had been born instead of bitten.⁠

Kieran would help any damsel in distress. But when he touched Thana and discovered she was his destined consort, the fight became personal.⁠

what pharaoh wants coverWhat Pharaoh Wants by Marcelle Sixx

“One more month and Robyn is officially mine. Hopefully he was the last one that she tried to sleep with. If not…” He slid into his car and gripped the steering wheel. “I feel bad for the next jig and her too. I’m done with the games. I want my wife and the power that comes with her.”

David Pharaoh was a vicious man. A truce between his father and another gentleman included a promise of young Robyn. After mastering the art of Dark Magic, Pharaoh decides that it’s time to take his prize. However, when Robyn rejects him, he stops at nothing to make any man who comes close to her suffer for even so much as looking, and to prove to Robyn that she only belongs him.

He would make her temperature rise with his invisible touch, or when he disturbed her dreams. Robyn’s loins ached as if he had truly invaded her in the wee hours of the morning. He would make sure to save the painful part of the first stroke, and only made her feel what his slow and meaningful penetration was like. It would always make Robyn wallow in passion and squeeze at her erect nipples before she would realize that she was being manipulated. Pharaoh was becoming much better at forcing himself inside of her dreams and make love to her before he would dissipate into nothing.

Robyn, held in the clutch of something that she hadn’t known she was involved in, is determined to get away and stay away from Pharaoh and his mischief. But at what cost? Anything can happen in the city of New Orleans when the son of Voodoo wants the princess of White Magic.

Wrong again.

Being clinically insane would be better than reality. In that scenario, the only person who’s in danger is me. Stolen from my life to be sold off to the highest bidding vampire to live as a blood slave would seem like the worst of my problems.

Not even close.
