Embrace by Jessica Shirvington
Goodreads | Amazon

I slowly opened my eyes. The sun speared its first bright rays of golden orange into the sky and I leapt from the cliff, with the sorrowful knowledge that no matter what the outcome, at least part of me would die that day...

Violet Eden is dreading her seventeenth birthday dinner. After all, it’s hard to get too excited about the day that marks the anniversary of your mother’s death. The one bright spot is that Lincoln will be there. Sexy, mature and aloof, he is Violet’s idea of perfection. But why does he seem so reluctant to be anything more than a friend?

After he gives her the world’s most incredible kiss – and then abandons her on her front doorstep – Violet is determined to get some answers. But nothing could have prepared her for Lincoln’s explanation: he is Grigori – part angel and part human – and Violet is his eternal partner.

Without warning, Violet’s world is turned upside down. She never believed in God, let alone angels. But there’s no denying the strange changes in her body ... and her feelings for Lincoln. Suddenly, she can’t stand to be around him. Luckily, Phoenix, an exiled angel, has come into her life. He’s intense and enigmatic, but at least he never lied to her.

As Violet gets caught up in an ancient battle between dark and light, she must choose her path. The wrong choice could cost not only her life, but her eternity...

Eternal Eclipse by Sherry Soule
Goodreads | Amazon

Immortal Struggle. Forbidden Passion. Timeless Envy.

  As a headstrong and practical New Yorker, Skylar Thornton doesn’t believe in the supernatural until she moves into Summerwind Mansion. Her hope for serenity and a new home is soon eclipsed by haunting dreams of another young woman murdered in the house. She suspects there’s something strange about this place and it’s not just the bad dreams—or her uncontrollable attraction to the former owner, Dorian Knight.  

 Dorian seems so achingly familiar and as close to Mr. Darcy as she’ll ever get. Expect Jane Austen never wrote a hero like him—someone who both excites and frightens her.  Determined to unlock secrets that have remained hidden for centuries, Skylar is plunged into an otherworldly mystery that not even she can explain away after her uncle mysteriously dies in the house.   

When the dark history of the Knight family begins to unravel, tensions heighten, and old resentments turn deadly. Even though Dorian warns Skylar about a terrible curse—she still doesn’t know who or what to believe. But just as Dorian tries to tell Skylar the awful truth, his darkest secrets are finally revealed—putting their lives in terrible danger.  Now Skylar starts to wonder which she would rather hold on to—her sanity…or her life?

Darkness Before Dawn by J.A London

This electrifying new trilogy blends the best of paranormal and dystopian storytelling in a world where the war is over. And the vampires won.

Humans huddle in their walled cities, supplying blood in exchange for safety. But not even that is guaranteed. Dawn has lost her entire family and now reluctantly serves as the delegate to Lord Valentine, the most powerful vampire for miles. It isn’t until she meets Victor, Valentine’s son, that she realizes not all vampires are monsters....

Transcendence by C.J Omololu
Goodreads | Amazon
When a visit to the Tower of London triggers an overwhelmingly real vision of a beheading that occurred centuries before, Cole Ryan fears she is losing her mind. A mysterious boy, Griffon Hall, comes to her aid, but the intensity of their immediate connection seems to open the floodgate of memories even wider.

As their feelings grow, Griffon reveals their common bond as members of the Akhet—an elite group of people who can remember past lives and use their collected wisdom for the good of the world. But not all Akhet are altruistic, and a rogue is after Cole to avenge their shared past. Now in extreme danger, Cole must piece together clues from many lifetimes. What she finds could ruin her chance at a future with Griffon, but risking his love may be the only way to save them both.

Full of danger, romance, and intrigue, Transcendence breathes new life into a perpetually fascinating question: What would you do with another life to live?
