The Wonder Of It All by Xio Axelrod

For a decade, Tre and Rudy starred in Wonderwhirl, a popular children’s show. They sang silly songs, did even sillier dances, and were the best of friends until the day everything changed. At nineteen and twenty, Tre and Rudy were deemed too old for the show. Their dream ended. Tre used Wonderwhirl as a steppingstone to success, but Rudy kept his affiliation with the show firmly in the past. He never forgot Tre, though it often seemed like Tre had forgotten him. When Rudy learns the truth about Wonderwhirl, he feels betrayed. Intent on revenge, he heads to Hollywood, landing a role in an edgy TV drama where the star is none other than Tre. But Rudy’s hasty plan to ruin the show is futile. The magic between them still lingers. Can Rudy forgive Tre? And can he work beside him and risk his heart again?

The Vampire’s Hunter by Kait Ballenger

Blood Moon Bride by Sherilee Gray

Shut away since childhood by her cruel parents, Delphine longed for the day her mate—a powerful vampire warrior and mysterious member of The Five—would save her from an agonizingly lonely existence. But with their identities kept secret, she never imagined he’d be the Five’s brutal and battle-scarred commander. Over the centuries just one thing has kept Constantine sane: dreams of the sweet female destined to be his and a life after war without pain or bloodshed. Every part of him hungers for Delphine, yet when he learns who her stepfather is—the male he’s vowed to destroy—he knows he must give her up. But keeping his innocent mate at arm’s length won’t be easy—especially when Delphine ignores the battle lines completely and launches a ruthless campaign to win his heart…
