Worthless

Worthless

Author: Carter J. Thompson Narrator: Joe Hempel Release Date: 01/10/2021

The world ended. The Night killed it. X is trapped living in the slums of the last remaining city on Earth. He can only venture out beyond the towering walls to scavenge relics of the old world when the sun is up. At night, like everybody else, he hides inside from the monsters of the shadows . . . until an unexpected death occurs a little too close to home. With the blame on his shoulders, and trigger-happy guards on his trail, X has no choice but to run. But the city was never a safe place to begin with, not really, and his only slim chance of survival lies outside the walls, in a landscape empty of humanity-and full of the darkness that wiped it out.

Luke Larken gets the surprise of his life when his howl is returned while out on a run. He knows immediately it's his one true mate, and it's coming from Collier territory. His once rival and now friend Thomas Collier and his mate Lily are more than happy to help him with the hunt to find her.

He doesn't know that when his predecessor split the packs, that Luke's mate had her family broken in pieces. She grew up watching the toll it took on her father and as a result carries much hatred in her heart for the Larkens. Can Luke move beyond her long-engrained resentments? Or has he lost his chance at true love before it even begins? When devastation strikes the Larken Pack, Luke must make some tough decisions and possibly relocate them all for a better life. He'll do anything to protect his Pack. But will he be willing to sacrifice his one true mate for the good of the majority? Or will he give it all up if it comes down to a choice between the two?

She sold her soul to keep her sister safe, and now she’s working off her contract by catching bad guys and dragging them back to hell.

Arctic Bite: Forgotten Brotherhood, Book 2

Author: N.J. Walters Narrator: Joe Hempel Release Date: 01/10/2021

Being immortal doesn’t mean you can’t die. It just means you’re damn hard to kill. When Alexei Medvedev joined the Forgotten Brotherhood—paranormals hired to assassinate other paranormals—he knew it wouldn’t be a cake walk. But his next target is one of Death’s own Reapers gone rogue. For the first time since he started this gig, “damn hard to kill” feels more like “damn near impossible.” Tracking Cassie Dobbs brings him to a remote bar in small-town Alaska, where this hot-as-hell Reaper is casually serving drinks, as if she doesn’t have a bounty on her head from Death himself. Alexei is dangerously intrigued. Everyone in the Brotherhood knows the first rule: don’t fall for your target. But Alexei soon has bigger problems to face than an unexpected attraction. They only send assassins after those who deserve to die…or so he’s been made to believe. Now that he’s met Cassie, though, he’s not so sure. What if everything he’s been told is a lie, and the person he’s been sent to kill is the only one who knows the truth?
