Supernatural creatures come alive @ the library

Kiss of Snow by Nalini Singh

Publishers Weekly

A love triangle long awaited by fans resolves in Singh's 10th Psy-Changeling installment, the first in hardcover. Sienna Lauren is a rare Psy X who can wreak devastation with cold fire. Sienna has fought hard to control her abilities, knowing she'll most likely burn out and die by age 25, but she can't control her longing for alpha wolf Hawke. Hawke is drawn to her too, but there are barriers between them: age, station, and the death of his destined mate. Hawke and Sienna's fight against their fierce attraction parallels the beginnings of real war against antichangeling Psy factions—a war in which Sienna may have to use the powers that could destroy her. Singh deftly eliminates Sienna's potential love interest and adds a sweet secondary romance that contrasts with the violent intensity of Sienna and Hawke's relationship. First-time readers may be a little overwhelmed, but fans who have been longing for this story will not be disappointed

Dead Reckoning by Charlaine Harris

From Barnes & Noble

There are some problems Sookie Stackhouse can't ignore; for example, the firebombing that she witnessed at Merlotte's, the bar where she works. Of course, true to form, our favorite telepath also has other dangerous things on her mind; for example, her Significant Other Eric Northman and his "child" Pam seem intent on killing their vampire master. As usual, things quickly become absorbingly complicated. Sometimes it just doesn't pay to have special gifts.

Born of Shadows by Sherrilyn Kenyon

From Barnes & Noble

Desideria is a Royal Guard sworn to protect her mother and her government. When she uncovers a devious assassination plot, she realizes that desperate times call for desperate messages. To save her mother and herself, she throws herself into the arms of a worldly-wise smuggler. Before long, things heat up in more ways than one. Sexy, sexy, supersexy.
