(The Guild Codex: Spellbound #1) Pub. date: September 14th 2018 Genres: New Adult, Urban Fantasy



Broke, almost homeless, and recently fired. Those are my official reasons for answering a wanted ad for a skeevy-looking bartender gig.
It went downhill the moment they asked me to do a trial shift instead of an interview—to see if I’d mesh with their “special” clientele. I think that part went great. Their customers were complete dickheads, and I was an asshole right back. That’s the definition of fitting in, right?
I expected to get thrown out on my ass. Instead, they…offered me the job?
It turns out this place isn’t a bar. It’s aguild. And the three cocky guys I drenched with a margarita during my trial? Yeah, they were mages. Either I’m exactly the kind of takes-no-shit bartender this guild needs, or there’s a good reason no one else wants to work here.
So what’s a broke girl to do? Take the job, of course—with a pay raise.

Note: The three mages are definitely sexy, but this series isn’t a reverse harem. It’s 100% fun, sassy, fast-paced urban fantasy.

(Shayne Davies, #1) Publication date: September 18th 2018 Genres: Adult, Urban Fantasy
When it comes to talented new recruits at the Federal Underworld Agency, Nora Jacobs is only half the story…
The Devil to Pay is the first book in Jackie May’s companion series to Nora Jacobs, set in the same urban fantasy Detroit, sharing several supporting characters (hello, Nick Gorgeous), but with a new main character, Shayne Davies. This series can be enjoyed on its own, but readers of the Nora Jacobs books will be more familiar with the world and its characters.
As a fox shifter, Shayne Davies gets no respect in an underworld run by the fearsome and powerful—werewolves and vampires, sorcerers, demons, and mythical faerie creatures. Even at home, Shayne is still treated like the brat of the pack. Her mom constantly nags; her intended (but unwanted) mate ensures plenty of awkward silences, and Shayne is even expected to act submissive to the pack’s future alpha…a six year old.
Yeah. Time for Plan B.

Happy Monday, Everyone!

    I hope everyone is staying safe, what with the hurricane and the flooding. I'm in western Virginia so we haven't seen the effects of the hurricane yet. Our city has highly recommended that those in the flood zone seek other shelters. Luckily, we live in the foothills of a mountain so we are not in the flood zone, but so much of the city is. I'm hoping that people will heed the warning and get themselves and their animals to safety ahead of the flood.  Of course, poor North Carolina is still getting rain. If you are in that area, please stay safe.

    In a world where people die and come back as immortal mythical creatures (vampires, werewolves, zombies, gods etc.) the mortal Elmer Jones scratches out a living as a private investigator. An elf hires him for a case that starts out with a dumped husband stealing a wedding ring and escalates into a plot to exterminate the human race. With the aid of his vampire assistant Val, Elmer must recover the ring, decipher its meaning, and save the world. 

    All in a day’s work for the Last Living Detective...

    The last Living Detective in a comic homage to the noir works of Raymond Chandler and Mickey Spillane, only with more dead bodies and funnier jokes.

    INFINITY IN DEATH

    Vienna, 1908

    Gabriele Ziegler is a young art student who becomes infatuated with charismatic archeologist Dr. Emeryk Quintillus. Only too late does she realize his true designs on her. He is obsessed with resurrecting Cleopatra and has retained the famed artist Gustav Klimt to render Gabriele as the Queen of the Nile, using ashes from Cleopatra’s mummy mixed with the paint. The result is a lifelike portrait emitting an aura of unholy evil . . .

    Vienna, 2018

    The Mortimer family has moved into Quintillus’s former home, Villa Dürnstein. In its basement they find an original Klimt masterpiece—a portrait of Cleopatra art scholars never knew existed. But that’s not all that resides within the villa’s vault. Nine-year-old Heidi Mortimer tells her parents that a strange man lives there.
     
    Quintillus’s desire to be with Cleopatra transcends death. His spirit will not rest until he has brought her back from the netherworld. Even if he has to sacrifice the soul of a child . . .






    Catherine Cavendish does it again with an eerie tale in Damned By the Ancients.

    The Mortimer family has moved into a new home in Vienna, closer to Ryan’s new job. Very quickly, they realize that things aren’t what they seem. There is a padlock on the basement door and they are told by the owners that no one is allowed down there. Their daughter Heidi very quickly imparts some very disturbing information about their new home.

    Mum. Dad. There’s a man in the basement.

    While her parents are quick to deny her statement as part of her active imagination, her mother Yvonne starts experiencing strange happenings herself. 

    The rapping was coming from behind the locked basement door.

    And then there’s the stray cat, who seems to commune with Heidi. Is the voice her parents hear that of Heidi, or of something more sinister?

    These things however are only the beginning for the Mortimer family and Heidi. When they decide to find out for themselves what lies beyond the basement door, they will set into motion events that cannot be stopped. Dr. Quentillas’ obsession with Cleopatra is not halted even by death and he will do whatever it takes to have his true love brought back to him.

    Cavendish has managed to write, not only a paranormal story that will raise the hairs on your arms, but one that is rich with Egyptian mythology.  During the very first chapter the tension is ratcheted up, leaving the reader on the edge of their seats. She then crafts an elaborate plot spanning from Vienna 1908 to present day. Everything falls into place as the mystery is unraveled and the secrets are revealed. Damned By the Ancients proves once again that Catherine Cavendish weaves creepy tales with believable characters in an atmospheric melding of history and horror.

    About the Author

    Hello, my name's Catherine Cavendish and I write horror fiction - frequently with ghostly, supernatural, gothic and haunted house themes.

    My novellas COLD REVENGE, MISS ABIGAIL'S ROOM, THE DEMONS OF CAMBIAN STREET, THE DEVIL INSIDE HER and THE SECOND WIFE have now been released in new editions by Crossroad Press.

    Also out now- from Kensington-Lyrical - the second in a trilogy - WAKING THE ANCIENTS - set in Egypt and Vienna and featuring the sinister Dr. Emeryk Quintillus whose obsession has stayed with him past the grave. The first in the trilogy - WRATH OF THE ANCIENTS - is already available and the third - DAMNED BY THE ANCIENTS - is available for pre-order (out in October).

    My novels THE DEVIL'S SERENADE and SAVING GRACE DEVINE have also been released in new editions by Crossroad Press, as have my novel of the Lancashire Witches - THE PENDLE CURSE - and my novellas, LINDEN MANOR and DARK AVENGING ANGEL.

    I live with a long-suffering husband and a delightful black cat who has never forgotten that her species used to be worshipped in ancient Egypt. She sees no reason why that practice should not continue.

    Our home is in a rambling building dating back to the mid 18th century, haunted by a friendly ghost, who announces her presence by footsteps, switching lights on and strange phenomena involving the washing machine and the TV.

    When not slaving over a hot computer, I enjoy wandering around Neolithic stone circles and visiting old haunted houses.

      Piper Griffiths wants one thing in life: To become a Consul, a keeper of the peace between humans and daemons. 

      There are three obstacles in her way.

      The first is Lyre. Incubus. Hotter than hell and with a wicked streak to match. His greatest mission in life is to annoy the crap out of her, but he isn't as harmless as he seems. 

      The second is Ash. Draconian. Powerful. Dangerous. He knows too much and reveals nothing. Also, disturbingly attractive — and scary. Did she mention scary?

      The third is the Sahar Stone. Top secret magical weapon of mass destruction. Previously hidden in her Consulate until thieves broke in, went on a murder spree, and disappeared with the weapon.

      And they left Piper to take the fall for their crimes.

      Now she’s on the run, her dreams of becoming a Consul shattered and every daemon in the city gunning to kill her. She’s dead on her own, but there’s no one she can trust — no one except two entirely untrustworthy daemons ... See problems one and two.
