A Hall of Keys and No Doors Emmie Mears

Ella Keyes thought the death of her twin brother Stuart was the last time she’d let life surprise her. She’s up for tenure at her university, she escaped a doomed engagement, and her fluffy cat knows exactly when to expect her home every day. But when her grandmother passes and leaves Ella her house, Ella discovers that the third floor corridor of keys is more than just a family pun. The seemingly-unremarkable keys don’t unlock any doors in the house, but each time Ella touches one, something in her life shifts. Her life’s carefully-grown roots are ripped out of their soil. Flowers bloom in the middle of a Buffalo winter. A blind date with the wrong person ends up being just maybe the right one. Her grandmother’s batty twin sister turns up every day searching for something even she doesn’t know how to identify, and Ella’s parents refuse to return her calls.

After months of training a budding army of human/demon hybrids, Ayala and Carrick have worked out most of their differences. Who gets to use the bathroom first in the morning. Who’ll feed the bunny before they go out to make mayhem. Who gets to keep the jeeling claw they found in Forest Hills. You know, the important stuff. But when Gregor sends them out with their battalion of shades and the mission quickly lands on the wrong side of Ayala’s “don’t kill norms” moral line, she quickly discovers that maybe morality wasn’t the motivator behind Gregor’s pet project—or at least not when money’s involved. And when a trio of shades starts murdering the populace in Nashville again and targeting places and people significant to Ayala, her desire to help her own comrade shades stay on the good side of the Mediators will place her at their mercy again. With the Summit fracturing and demons closing in on the city, saving the shades and herself may cost Ayala everything.

A woman who values her independence above all else, Rachael Gooding excels at keeping men at a distance. Wielding her exotic good looks and razor sharp wit to intimidate rather than attract, she’s managed to avoid the pain and complications she knows would come with a serious relationship.

When a man from her past is murdered in the park across the street from her apartment, Rachael must decide whether to tell Simms about her past and risk exposing everything she’s spent the last ten years guarding so carefully.

Under the Owl Tree Sara Daniell

Moving to Stockbridge, GA wasn’t how I planned on starting my senior year. I didn’t want to have to prove my worth in an all-boys sport or deal with the inevitable struggles of being the “new girl.” I definitely didn’t want to find myself falling for someone who was completely off limits — the assistant coach, Zach Shaw. It was as if we were at war, just waiting for the first one to cave into temptation. But I wasn’t his toy, and my feelings weren’t his playground. I needed to know that I was more to him than the casual fun he was used to in the past. I needed to know that breaking the rules would be worth it. Zach and I were wrong right together. So right.
