Times are hard for newly minted vampire Merit. Ever since shapeshifters announced their presence to the world, humans have been rallying against supernaturals - and they're camping outside Cadogan House with protest signs that could turn to pitchforks at any moment.

It's not long before Merit finds herself in the dark, heady heart of Chicago's supernatural society - which seems to be full of vampires ready to fulfill the human's worst fears. She's about to learn that you can't be a vampire without getting a little blood on your hands ...

The First Chicagoland Vampires Novel They killed me. They healed me. They changed me. Sure, the life of a graduate student wasn’t exactly glamorous, but I was doing fine until Chicago’s vampires announced their existence to the world. When a rogue vampire attacked me, I was lucky he only got a sip. Another bloodsucker scared him off and decided the best way to save my life was to make me the walking undead. Now I’ve traded sweating over my thesis for learning to fit in at a Hyde Park mansion full of vamps loyal to Ethan “Lord o’ the Manor” Sullivan. Of course, as a tall, green-eyed, four-hundred-year-old vampire, he has centuries’ worth of charm, but unfortunately he expects my gratitude—and servitude. Right… But someone’s out to get me. Is it the rogue vampire who bit me? A vamp from a rival House? An angry mob bearing torches? My initiation into Chicago’s nightlife may be the first skirmish in a war—and there will be blood.

William W. Johnstone, bestselling author of the Mountain Man and Blood Bond series, continues his bold new saga of the American frontier, where a town called Fury is pitted against the rugged and unforgiving wilds of the Arizona Territory...and only one man has the courage to keep fighting for Fury's very survival. It's hard country, but the pioneers of Fury (Pop. 112) are banding together to make it a home. With barren lands, blinding dust storms, drought, hostile Indians, and violent bands of cutthroat outlaws against them, death is never far away. It's enough to make Jason Fury, whose father the town was named after, ride out for San Francisco. But a fiery young redhead named Megan McDonald keeps him Arizona bound--and just in time. When another Indian attack finds the marshal's badge pinned to Jason's unwilling chest, he turns out to be the right man to do whatever it takes--for... A Town Called Fury

Praise for Cynthia Eden and Burn for Me “Cynthia’s on my must-buy list.”—Angie Fox “Inspired, masterful.” —RT Book Reviews, TOP PICK! “Alluring.” —Publishers Weekly “Readers will be looking forward to more Phoenix Fire books and, of course, hot alpha men.” —USAToday.com “Wickedly sexy!” —The Parkersburg News & Sentinel “Vampires and shape-shifters abound . . .

"The 14 chapters posit a regendering of revolutionary poetics, which is accomplished by reworking concepts such as '(new)man,' 'woman,' and 'subaltern.' The predictability of Rodrâiguez's arguments and dated historical referents do not detract from solidanalyses, like those in chapter eight regarding Mario Roberto Morales' 'El esplendor de la pirâamide' and those in the next chapter on Oreamuno's 'La ruta de su evasiâon.' The author focuses on her strength - narratives from Cuba and her native Nicaragua"--Handbook of Latin American Studies, v. 58.
