Full moons bring out the dangers, and for private investigator Sam Hain, that means a supernatural creature has run afoul of the Veil Watchers, a government organization dedicated to preventing humans from knowing they share a world with supernatural creatures by any means necessary. As her birthday nears, an evasive redcap asks seeks her aid for a banshee whom a young woman filmed singing her warning of doom and then uploaded the video to social media. As the video went viral, teams of amateur ghost hunters descended upon the sleepy Irish village of Bannagh.

Now the banshee, the young woman who discovered her, and numerous ghost hunters are in danger from the Veil Watchers and from ancient evils and shadowy forces alluded to in the banshee’s song. With only four days before Veil Watcher Michael Cormack arrives to preserve the secret through a shoot-first policy, Sam has little time for error if she is to protect everyone from overzealous Watcher Michael Cormack, known for his scorched earth approach to keeping the secret safe. And as ancient evils rise and threaten the living, Sam’s resolve to protect the lives of all involved will be tested as she unravels the mystery of Liam’s doom.

The R.S. Parker Paranormal Romances

Laura Trescothick is a vampire who writes cozy mysteries as Sonya Parkes. She just went indie after decades with a single publisher, but the creative control that comes with independence leaves her with little time to meet new people. With the release of her newest novel, Queen of Bleeding Hearts, she’s set up for a book signing at a local, independent bookstore run by her ex-girlfriend.

Ali Hopkins comes from a long line of witch and monster hunters, a legacy she wants no part of. Cursed by a witch to transform into a beast that will stalk and kill her family on the eve of her twenty-fifth birthday. With two weeks before the fated event, she learns of an elixir that might break the curse and make her family proud of her. But there’s a catch! The one man who claims to know the formula demands Ali kill a vampire for him.

When Laura and Ali accidentally bump into each other at the Sonya Parkes book signing, books and sparks fly. But when each learns the other’s identity, will Laura see Ali as anything beyond a threat? Will her feelings even matter to Ali once she learns of Laura’s true nature?
