TITLE: Soul Magic (Book #3)
SERIES: Triad
AUTHOR: Poppy Dennison
PUBLISHER: Dreamspinner Press
BLURB: Blood runs soul-deep. Cormac hasn’t been the same since the night the High Moon Pack was attacked. With his magic weakened, he’s consumed by a bloodlust he hasn’t felt since he first became a vampire. His need to replenish his power makes him a danger to his last remaining family member, and his hunger makes him careless. And that’s just the beginning of his troubles. Feeding from pack beta Liam Benson was supposed to slake his appetite, not leave him craving more.

Simon Osborne and Gray Townsend are trying to fight a being history says shouldn’t exist—one with all three types of magic. The pack must use all of their resources to combat the mysterious triad, even turning to the shady Council of Mages for help. While Cormac struggles to reconcile his past failures with his current desires, Simon must attempt the impossible: an alliance between mind, body, and soul.

TITLE: Prelude
SERIES: Blue Notes
AUTHORS: Shira Anthony & Venona Keyes
PUBLISHER: Dreamspinner Press
BLURB: World-renowned conductor David Somers never wanted the investment firm he inherited from his domineering grandfather. He only wanted to be a composer. But no matter how he struggles, David can’t translate the music in his head into notes on paper.

When a guest violinist at the Chicago Symphony falls ill, David meets Alex Bishop, a last-minute substitute. Alex’s fame and outrageous tattoos fail to move David. Then Alex puts bow to string, and David hears the brilliance of Alex’s soul.

David has sworn off relationships, believing he will eventually drive away those he loves, or that he’ll lose them as he lost his wife and parents. But Alex is outgoing, relaxed, and congenial—everything David is not—and soon makes dents in the armor around David’s heart. David begins to dream of Alex, wonderful dreams full of music. Becoming a composer suddenly feels attainable.

David’s fragile ego, worn away by years of his grandfather’s disdain, makes losing control difficult. When David’s structured world comes crashing down, his fledgling relationship with Alex is the first casualty. Still, David hears Alex’s music, haunting and beautiful. David wants to love Alex, but first he must find the strength to acknowledge himself.

When David joins Doug and his brother, Bryan, on a job to track down a group of vengeful trolls, the journey takes them across the Expanse to the Shards of Exeter, a magical place made of continent-size landmasses shrouded in atmosphere. There, supernatural beings abound and formidable adversaries lurk in the shadows.

But the mission is more than it seems. Through visions, David learns of the role he must play in reshaping the Expanse—and of the unspeakable evil that caused the God Hunters’ war so long ago. With that same threat resurfacing, David must embrace his destiny to save the family he has come to love.

When his co-worker and best buddy Ken Hancock brings him to a new gym, with a tough-as-nails personal trainer named Granger, Thomas immediately gets a ‘vibe’ from the young man.
