Her Majesty’s Necromancer – C.J. Archer

“Put your arm around me,” I told Lincoln Fitzroy. He did, and as with every other time he touched me, my blood responded with a throb and my skin tightened. Imagine how I would react if he touched me with desire and not violence. I hooked my fingers onto his forearm, dropped so that he […]

Heart of the Fae – Emma Hamm

Blood covered her hands. The metallic smell burned her nostrils and overwhelmed her senses. Although she’d finished the surgery an hour ago, she still saw the gaping wound, the splayed open flesh, and the iridescent shimmer of the blood beetle feasting upon sinuous muscle. Sorcha sat on the back stoop with her hands dangling off […]

Haunting the Deep – Adriana Mather

I sip my hot cocoa, not the powdered kind that comes out of a packet, but the shaved-chocolate kind made from scratch.

Grave Witch – Kalayna Price

The first time I encountered Death, I hurled my mother’s medical chart at him.As far as impressions went, I blew it, but I was five at the time, so he eventually forgave me.

Going Down in Flames – Chris Cannon

Bryn yanked down the school bus window. Not that it helped much. The bus still smelled like sweat and nacho cheese. The sweat could be explained by the freshman boys who had gym last hour and considered showering optional. The nacho cheese was a mystery. When the bus came to her stop, Bryn stood, cringing […]

Godsgrave – Jay Kristoff

Nothing stinks quite like a corpse. It takes a while for them to really start reeking. O, chances are good if you don’t soil your britches before you die, you’ll soil them soon afterward—your human bodies simply work that way, I’m afraid. But I don’t mean the pedestrian stink of shit, gentlefriends. I speak of […]

Zero – Kendra Mei Chailyn

It had been decided I’d be the one to go on an exchange to Jamaica. That news hadn’t come as a great shock to me. Every year, the GSG 9 and the Jamaica Defence Force did an exchange. It had been a hassle to find someone—most were married, families, children. Since Beast and Fleur were […]

Zephyr – Miranda Bridges, Kyra Snow

Speak now, or forever shut the fuck up.” Khloe laughs at her twin’s remark, her shoulders shaking from the force of her mirth. I’m sure she’s used to Kayla’s sense of humor. Meanwhile, I cringe inwardly. It’s not the first time Kayla has said something like that and I know it won’t be the last. […]

Zecri – Ella Maven

I carefully swiped at the dried blood behind Graven’s collar. While my skin had long since turned into a mass of scar tissue, Graven’s wouldn’t toughen up. He bled every time the chains on his collar were yanked, which was often. “I’m fine,” he grumbled, but his face pinched with pain and he wouldn’t meet […]

Zane – Tasha Black

Sarah Flynn prided herself on not being easily rattled.

Justice, Sarah, she reminded herself firmly. Justice […]

Zane – Emilia Hartley

Chelsea Montrose’s hands shook. There had been a time when she wistfully gazed at the gleaming lake and marveled at its sapphire beauty.

You Spin Me – Karen Grey

ONCE UPON A time, there was a beautiful princess. She was a tad vain and spoiled, but aren’t all princesses?

You Ruined Me – Isabel Jordan

Nothing screamed “pathetic” like buying a gallon of cheap vodka at an IGA on a weekday afternoon in the hopes of getting so trashed you forgot your exfiancée was marrying your douchebag cousin.

You Love Me – Caroline Kepnes

You Are Mine – Jenika Snow

Yes, Captain – Ann Grech

Eddie cried quietly in the room he shared with his two brothers. He was the middle child of five, an older brother and sister and a younger set of each too. But none of them suffered like he did. His brothers were stocky while he was slim and almost delicate. Even his sisters were made […]

Yearn – A. D. Ellis

“GET İN AND DON’T SPEAK,” Khi ordered as he unlocked his car.
