Dreamer by Nicole Thomas
This is the first book in the Dreambound series.
Received from author for review.


Someone is using Anna's dreams as a weapon, and so far, they've gotten away with murder. Anna isn't quite sure why those closest to her die when she dreams, but it's enough to turn this teenager off REM sleep and relationships for good. She has more than enough blood on her hands without boys crushing on her and getting buried six feet underground as a result.

As of right now, Anna's plan to avoid relationships with anyone outside her family has gone off without a hitch. And if it weren't for her classmate, Liam, she would've continued to do so. Liam's successfully flown under her social radar, and if he wants to avoid having his obituary in the local newspaper, he'd keep it that way. But when he confides in Anna and tells her he has dreams as well, he becomes an exception to the rule.

Okay, so his dreams might not be as dangerous, but it turns out his mother's were. Liam's mom is missing. His mom just turned eighteen when she fell completely off the grid, and Anna could be next.

Touch the Dark by Karen Chance
This is the first book in the Cassandra Palmer series.
Bought from unknown location.


Cassandra Palmer can see the future and communicates with spirits--talents that make her attractive to the dead and the undead. The ghosts of the dead aren't usually dangerous; they just like to talk... a lot.

The undead are another matter.

Like any sensible girl, Cassie tries to avoid vampires. But when the bloodsucking mafioso she escaped three years ago finds Cassie again with vengeance on his mind, she's forced to turn to the vampire Senate for protection.

The undead senators won't help her for nothing, and Cassie find herself working with one of the most powerful members, a dangerously seductive master vampire--and the price he demands may be more than Cassie is willing to pay...

Cry Wolf by Patricia Briggs
This is the first book in the Alpha & Omega series.
Bought from unknown location.


Anna never knew werewolves existed, until the night she survived a violent attack... and become one herself. After three years at the bottom of the pack, she'd learned to keep her head down and never, ever trust dominant males. Then Charles Cornick, the enforcer--and son--of the leader of the North American werewolves, came into her life.

Charles insists that not only is Anna his mate, but she is also a rare and valued Omega wolf. And it is Anna's inner strength and calming presence that will prove invaluable as she and Charles go on the hunt in search of a rogue werewolf--a creature bound in magic so dark that it could threaten all of the pack.


Wicked Game by Jeri Smith-Ready
This is the first book in the WVMP Radio series.
Bought from unknown location.


LATE NIGHT RADIO YOU CAN SINK YOUR TEETH INTO 

Recovering con artist Ciara Griffin is trying to live the straight life, even if it means finding a (shudder!) real job. She takes an internship at a local radio station, whose late-night time-warp format features 1940s blues, '60s psychedelia, '80s goth, and more, all with an uncannily authentic flair. Ciara soon discovers just how the DJs maintain their cred: they're vampires, stuck forever in the eras in which they were turned.

Ciara's first instinct, as always is to cut and run. But communications giant Skywave wants to buy WVMP and turn it into just another hit-playing clone. Without the station and the link it provides to their original Life Times the vampires would "fade," becoming little more than mindless ghosts of the past. Suddenly a routine corporate takeover is a matter of life and undeath.

To boost ratings and save the loves of her strange new friends, Ciara rebrands the station as "WVMP, the Lifeblood of Rock 'n' Roll." In the ultimate con, she hides the DJs' vampire nature in plain sight, disguising the bloody truth as a marketing gimmick. WVMP becomes the hottest thing around next to Ciara's complicated affair with grunge vamp Shane McAllister. But the "gimmick" enrages a posse of ancient and powerful vampire who aren't so eager to be brought into the light. Soon the stakes are higher and the perils graver than any con game Ciara's ever played...
