Last Rites (A Lucy Hart, Rites Novel)
by Mercy Walker
4.2 out of 5 stars on Amazon
YA Paranormal Romance

What if you discover your fiancé is a werewolf, and worse, his creature-of-the-night girlfriend is trying to kill you?

Lucy Hart, eighteen-year-old queen bee and captain of the cheer squad, faces just that. She loses everything—money, social status, and even her home—when her father is arrested for tax evasion and immigrant slave trafficking. Reduced to flipping burgers, she plots to get her old life back, blackmailing her father’s slime ball lawyer, and scheming her way into a gig pretending to be a rich young man’s “fiancée.” The pay: enough money to let her write her own future. The bad news: the guy is a condescending pain in the butt.

In no time at all Lucy finds herself fighting for her life as her faux fiancé’s vampire girlfriend tries to slaughter her, and on top of that, getting royally grossed out by her own spanking new paranormal ability: necromancy. Yet somehow, while she gets back her life and kicks vampire butt, she also manages to fall in love/lust with her fake fiancé.

The Last Nephilim
by Martyn Housley-Smith
4.0 out of 5 stars on Amazon

Veiled from the world, three teenage nephilim and the priest who raised them battle to prevent the Fallen making their own Hell on earth. But when their mentor is forced to reveal his true identity, his dying words send them on a dangerous journey to uncover the truth about their origins and deep into the lair of the darkest of angels.

This is a teenage novel that tries to take a fresh stance on the angel theme. No ripped torsos confusing a love torn protagonist here. This is a fast paced global adventure, full of twists and turns; from Venice to Las Vegas you will live the adventure as the three nephilim seek the truth of their beginnings.

Urban Fantasy

Forsaken. Condemned. Destined. Scandalously accused of murder in his hometown, Godren is compelled to flee for his innocent life, only to take up crime for survival on the streets. He knew he would have to adapt – but he never meant to adapt so well. Too late, he learns he has woven a reputation into the interests of corrupt professionals – namely Mastodon, the crime queen of the city. A sorceress of sorts, she has been avoided by the law more than hunted. But bounty hunters are becoming increasingly reckless in character, and, unbound by the particulars of the law, are realizing their capacity to grapple with her. Due to their evolving nerve, Mastodon has put a price on their own heads. Godren faces a commission of leading a new breed of bounty hunter against the originals. Doomed if he refuses such a ruthless woman her wishes, Godren has little choice but to comply, when all he wants is to escape the injustice of the corrupt world he has been plunged into. Will there prove to be no honor in survival? Or will Godren put faith in the transcendental signs of fate that inspire him to fight for justice, and dedicate himself to a willful quest for deliverance, pursuing the forceful yet painstaking process of turning the tables? And could there still be room for an additional scheme of secret ambition?
