Carnival Tarot - Dakotah's Reading By Jory Strong Book 3 in the Carnival Tarot series. Three cards. The past. The present. The future. Death. Strength. The Emperor. Dakotah Flemming didn't believe that the tarot cards spread out in front of her held the truth. Because even though the fortune-teller's prediction of a man in her future, one unlike any other, filled her for precious seconds with longing and hope, she couldn't afford the luxury of such emotions. She was running from the past, from an enemy determined to see her dead. And as much as the wolf who shared her skin might want a mate, Dakotah didn't have any illusion that such a thing was possible. Domino Santori had no intention of taking a bride, of converting her into a kadine-a vampire's mate. Instead he envisioned a future filled with an endless string of women to satisfy his needs. But the wolf that was an integral part of him had a different idea. And its will combined with The Heat and The Hunger of his race soon had Domino wanting Dakotah as fiercely as he'd once desired his freedom.
In a post-Apocalyptic world where supernaturals have emerged from hiding, wealthy humans delight in decadence while the religious gain power through temptation. For the masses, fear reigns from birth to death, and the afterlife holds beings that only the bravest can summon—or dare to desire…
Taken from her home and family, shamaness Aisling McConaughey has no choice except to enter the “ghostlands” in order to learn the fate of a wealthy man’s mistress. But there is always a price to pay for the use of her power. To save the woman’s life she must summon the Djinn prince Zurael en Caym—and yield to his savage, sensual rage.
Zurael fears nothing except being called and bound to a human’s will. He intends to kill Aisling after she’s served as bait to find an enemy in possession of an ancient tablet. But the more he tastes of her innocent spirit, the more he’ll use his fiery touch and seductive whispers to keep her hungry for his mercy—even as they weave an erotic spell that he cannot escape…
Powerful forces threaten both their worlds, leaving Aisling and Zurael with an unbearable choice. Follow their hearts…or stay true to their honor and risk losing an eternity of pleasure.
The author of Spider-Touched and Ghostland continues her tale of a postapocalyptic world where the afterlife has come to life...
Born into a world of violence and paid-for sex, Rebekka longs for a family of her own and dreams of freeing those trapped in the shapeshifter brothels of the red zone. A witch's prophecy claims she'll one day use her gift to heal the Weres made outcast by their mixed human-animal forms.
But Rebekka knows that everything comes at a cost. A plea to save five children sends her into the arms of Aryck, a Jaguar enforcer—and into territory controlled by pure Weres. It's a place where humans and outcasts aren't welcomed, where plague threatens and the fate of the Weres hangs in the balance. And where the choices Rebekka and Aryck make are paid for with their hearts...if not their souls.

The author of Ghostland continues her tale of a postapocalyptic world where supernatural beings have emerged from hiding.
Held prisoner by humans, his angelic memory and power lost because of the sigil-inscribed collar around his neck, Tir dreams of freedom and hungers for vengeance. He's sworn he'll never lie with a mortal, but when Araña removes his shackles and helps him escape his captivity, she melts his icy control and leaves him burning with desire. She's a temptation he can't resist — an unknowing enemy who might well enslave him more thoroughly than the chains he's worn for centuries.
Powerful forces have brought them together to serve a greater purpose, but learning the truth of what they are will destroy them — unless their love is strong enough to overcome the dark legacy of a battle that began with the birth of mankind.
When Marisa Lacoste goes to the Cascades she never expects to end up running for her life. Betrayed. Terrified. Her pursuers close behind, she scrambles along a canyon wall until she's sent hurtling downward. Left to die, she regains consciousness to find herself in a cave with a warrior whose every touch and glance signals that she belongs to him. Ukiah cares for her. Makes love to her. Conquers her with pleasure. But when a decision on her part puts Marisa back in danger, he's forced to act, to test her courage and the strength of their new relationship by showing himself for what he is-a creation of magic and belief whose spirit takes flight in the storm.
Trey's worked hard at denying he's gay. He's suppressed it by never allowing himself to act on a same-sex attraction. He's avoided it by becoming involved in relationships with women. But when he helps the Feds take down his girlfriend's family, he ends up in protective custody — and in the arms of Tenino, a sheriff's deputy who wants a permanent lover, one he can share the full truth about his Thunderbird spirit with.
The attraction is immediate, intense, undeniable. But their future together is uncertain. Trey's ex-girlfriend is looking for him. And she wants revenge — of the fatal kind.
