Blurb: Welcome to the secret wing of County Hospital—where vampires get transfusions, werewolves have silver allergies, and one nurse is in way over her head…
Nursing school prepared Edie Spence for a lot of things. Burn victims? No problem. Severed limbs? Piece of cake. Vampires? No way in hell. But as the newest nurse on Y4, the secret ward hidden in the bowels of County Hospital, Edie has her hands full with every paranormal patient you can imagine—from vamps and were-things to zombies and beyond…
Edie’s just trying to learn the ropes so she can get through her latest shift unscathed. But when a vampire servant turns to dust under her watch, all hell breaks loose. Now she’s haunted by the man’s dying words--Save Anna—and before she knows it, she’s on a mission to rescue some poor girl from the undead. Which involves crashing a vampire den, falling for a zombie, and fighting for her soul.
Grey’s Anatomy was never like this…
Highlight: The gruesome wounds of the Supernatural are tended to at a Paranormal Hospital.
Caution: If you have a weak stomach, forgo the gory details.
Highlight: The world has been brought to life by the casualness and ignorance Edie portrays towards the Paranormal beings. So you learn as she does.

My name is Rylee, and I am a Tracker. When children go missing, and the Humans have no leads, I'm the one they call. I am their last hope in bringing home the lost ones. I salvage what they cannot. I'm on the FBI's wanted list. I have a werewolf for a pet, a Witch of a best friend, and I have no need for anyone else in my life. But when a salvage starts to spin out of control, help comes from a most unexpected direction. One that is dangerously dark, brooding, and doesn't know a thing about the supernatural. One whose kisses set me on fire.
Highlight: The rapid change of scene mirrors the character being on the run.
Caution: Rylee runs around like a headless chicken.
Highlight: The action scenes replay for your enjoyment.
Caution: Repeated lines of the characters dry up faster than Rylee can run.

TITLE: Masked SheWolf
AUTHOR: Yara Gharios
SYNOPSIS: The first female werewolf in centuries has to stay hidden. Micheal Dylan Connolly was born a girl against all odds, and she must mask her gender to evade those who would want to use her bloodline. She has been living as a boy for almost eighteen years now.
When a powerful pack comes into town, Michael's secret is in jeopardy. She is torn between her fascination with the newcomers and her fear of being taken. But she isn't the only one keeping secrets; the pack's new leader, Alpha Logan Underwood, did not suddenly change homes for no reason.
However, danger can surprise you from anywhere; even those closest to us are capable of putting our lives at risk, and pretty soon, Michael finds herself in the middle of too many lies, which could threaten to expose hers.
Because secrets always seem to have a way of coming out.
