Heart of the Dragon’s Realm by Karalynn Lee
Princess Kimri is used to betrayal. Her brother sold her to a king in exchange for swords to defend his lands. King Tathan’s reputation is as fierce as that of his mountain kingdom—where dragons are said to guard the castle walls—but the realms are unstable enough without angering the mountain-king, so Kimri reluctantly agrees to the union.

Beneath a Darkening Moon (Ripple Creek) by Keri Arthur
Savannah Grant still harbors deep secrets and carries emotional scars from a love affair gone bad many years ago.

The Council of Blades: Forgotten Realms by Paul Kidd
War cares little for the troubles of the aristocracy.

Dead Spots by Melissa F. Olson
Scarlett Bernard knows about personal space: step within ten feet of her, and any supernatural spells or demonic forces are instantly defused—vampires and werewolves become human again, and witches can’t get out so much as a “hocus pocus.” This special skill makes her a null and very valuable to Los Angeles’s three most powerful magical communities, who utilize her ability to scrub crime scenes clean of all traces of the paranormal to keep humanity, and the LAPD, in the dark.

Krampus: The Yule LordKrampus: The Yule Lord by Brom
Santa Claus, my dear old friend, you are a thief, a traitor, a slanderer, a murder, a liar, but worst of all you are a mockery of everything for which I stood. You have sung your last ho, ho, ho, for I am coming to take your head. I am coming to take back what is mine, to take back Yuletide.Publisher: Harper Voyager (October 30, 2012) ASIN: B007JLK8TQ

The Lion in Chains: A Foreworld SideQuest (The Foreworld Saga) by Mark Teppo and Angus Trim
Many were displeased with the “peace” King Richard of England brokered in the Holy Land, and his return from the Crusades wasn’t greeted with cheers, but rather shackles. Now a “guest” of the Holy Roman Emperor, the Lion-Hearted is being held for an exorbitant ransom…so much money that it seems unlikely that the silver will make its way from Britain to Germany.
With a surprising cast of characters, The Lion in Chains is a Foreworld SideQuest that illuminates a decisive moment in European history in an unexpected way, revealing another secret in the long-reaching narrative of the Shield-Brethren.

The Shattered Dark by Sandy Williams
McKenzie was a normal college student, save for one little twist: she’s a shadow reader, someone who can both see the fae and track their movements between our world and the Realm.

Stray Souls (Magicals Anonymous) by Kate Griffin

A Trace of Moonlight (Abby Sinclair) (Abby Sinclair) by Allison Pang
Abby’s pact with a daemon—whether or not she remembers making it—is binding, so she’d better count herself lucky that (in the words of a daemon who knows better) there’s nearly always a loophole. But her friends’ reckless attempts to free her, well intentioned though they may be, set off a disastrous chain of events. In no time at all, Abby turns her incubus lover mortal, then gets herself killed, cursed, and married to an elven prince whose mother wants her dead. On top of everything else, she’s lost the Key to the Cross Roads to her mortal enemy, who promptly uses his restored power to wreak havoc on the Other World and put its very existence in jeopardy. Only one person can make things right again, but to find her, Abby must place her trust in allies of mixed loyalties, and conquer her nightmares once and for all.
