Stormbringer by Isabel Cooper

Sentinels spend their lives fighting the monsters that prey upon humanity. Deep in the wilderness, a lone Sentinel discovers a handsome warrior in ancient clothing, held in an endless sleep—Amris, hero of the world’s last great battle. His discovery can only mean one thing: the Traitor God is gathering his armies again, and everyone they love is in terrible danger. Amris has been trapped in dreamless sleep for centuries. Now he’s awake…and so, it seems, is humanity’s greatest threat. Determined to save the world from being swallowed by the Traitor God’s oncoming storm, Amris and his rescuer, the fiercely beautiful Darya, must learn to trust each other—and the powerful bond that’s formed between them—as they fight their way through a land swarming with danger to get word back to their allies before it’s too late… Fans of The Witcher and Ilona Andrews will love this epic tale of adventure and romance. During the day, ISABEL COOPER maintains her guise as a mild-mannered project manager in

Walking the Edge by Sue Ward Drake

On the knife edge of danger in the streets of New Orleans, these rugged men call the Big Easy home, and they’ll do whatever it takes to protect their own. Ex-army ranger Mitch Guidry never should have let his brothers talk him into joining them in the Big Easy.

Unfortunately, the only way to save her brother is to stick to Mitch like glue. But sharing close quarters with him whi

I wish this had released during the spooky season of October, but a little "Nightmare Before Christmas" never hurt nobody! Fantastic!  ~
