Who better to figure out why blood is being spilled than the vampire Lemuel, who, while translating mysterious texts, discovers what makes Midnight the town it is. There's a reason why witches and werewolves, killers and psychics, have been drawn to this place. And now they must come together to stop the bloodshed in the heart of Midnight.

Sport of Kings by C. E. Morgan
The grace of a parable and the force of an epic. A majestic story of speed and hunger, racism and justice, this audiobook is an astonishment from start to finish. A vital new voice, C. E.

Yet even their deep bond can’t heal all wounds from their individual pasts, as the collegiate and post-collegiate women struggle with their own demons, drama, and desires.
As the women try to overcome— or give into— their impulses, they find not only themselves tested, but the one thing they always considered unbreakable: their friendship.
Eligible by Curtis Sittenfeld

Suddenly he finds himself in the company of The Department of Peculiar Science, a fearsome enforcement agency that polices the odd and strange. The box isn't just a supernatural heirloom with quaint powers, they tell him. It's a doomsday device. They think. And suddenly, everyone is out to get it.
Flight of Arrows by Lori Benton
In 1757, a young Redcoat, Reginald Aubrey stole a newborn Native American during the devastating fall of Fort William Henry and raised him as his own.

Not Two Hawks, William’s twin brother separated since birth. Nor Lydia, who longs for Reginald to be free from his self-imposed emotional prison and embrace God’s forgiveness— and her love.

William, whose identity has been shattered after discovering the truth of his birth, hides in the ranks of an increasingly aggressive British army.
