by S.M. Reine
5 out of 5 stars on Amazon
Urban Fantasy Thriller

Julieta’s never been quite right. She likes the company of corpses. She studied vampires in college. She dreams of darkness and cold metal and blood. She thinks that becoming engaged to Michael—beautiful, warm, godlike Michael—might be her salvation. But then he vanishes, and she buys a gun to take his place.

Alec is nothing like Michael. He assassinates vampires, and he shows Julieta how to be the perfect monster. It’s not love, but killing vampires together is almost better. When Julieta is taken by a coven of vampires, Alec is the only one who can save her, and what they face leaves them only one question: Who is the better monster?

The Rhine Maiden: A Suburban Fantasy (The Rhine Maiden Book 1)
by Erin Evans
3.7 out of 5 stars on Amazon
Humorous Urban Fantasy

“She speaks and they obey,” but even a supernatural ability can’t help this stay-at-home mom control her own life.

The Rhine Maiden is a laugh-out-loud urban-fantasy with an unlikely protagonist, a young mother who has an unusual power. Blessed, or perhaps cursed, with the ability to command obedience, Piper Cavanaugh’s normal life turns upside down in this full-length novel.

A descendent of the sirens who sang sailors to their deaths, Piper has vowed to never use her power of command, but one little slip-up and her secret has come back to bite her – literally. Now she must gain permission to join the United Supernatural Beings, or it’s open hunting season on all of humanity. While juggling toddlers, keeping her husband in the dark, and babysitting her rebellious kid sister, Piper finds herself befriending a vampire, stealing from murderous witches, and doing battle with “Satan,” otherwise known as her mother-in-law. And she thought grocery shopping with her kids was hard!

The Rhine Maiden is a refreshing switch for readers who long for a more relatable heroine. With commonsense and sass, Piper handles diapers to decapitations as only a mother can. Filled with comedy, action, and thrills, The Rhine Maiden expands the borders of urban fantasy into the suburbs!

ExtraNormal (Book 1)
by Suze Reese
4.5 out of 5 stars on Amazon
YA Paranormal Romance

An extraordinary tale of an ExtraNormal girl.

Mira Johns is pretty much like any other teenage girl. Except that she knows how to harness electro-magnetic energy to communicate without words.

And she's really, really far from home.

Her assignment as an emissary to Earth sounds fairly simple: blend in, observe, and stay away from the planet's primitive males.

But after she finds one boy too irresistible for stupid rules, she realizes the real reason she's supposed to keep her distance: mates from her world can die if separated.

Mira's only hope is to uncover the truth to why she, the most mediocre of candidates, was actually chosen for this assignment--before the agency discovers her secret and sends her back home.
