1. Past Redemption by Savannah Russe
Scandal, secrets, seduction – it’s all in the family. If you passed Daphne Urban on the streets of New York, you’d see a sleek young brunette dressed to kill. You’d never know she was a vampire. But the government knows. Their ultimatum is to spy for the United States, or be terminated. And after all these centuries, Daphne is not ready to call it quits…The word is out on Susto. It’s a new recreational drug that intensifies sex, it’s spreading like wildfire – and it’s lethal. Team Darkwing’s mission is to track the drug back to its origin. Immersing themselves in New York City’s nightlife, they soon discover ties between Susto’s billions in revenue and the country’s most powerful political dynasty. To infiltrate the family, Daphne flirts with its weakest link, handsome party boy St Julien Fitzmaurice, whom she’d love to casually sink her teeth into. But even as their dalliance leads her deeper into the case, Daphne can’t stop thinking about Darius, the darkly sexy human she claimed with a passionate bite. He’s the bad boy she knows she should – she must – forget, because if she doesn’t, she’ll be risking not only the mission, but her own heart…

But there is something very different about Ian, something both wonderful and frightening.

Earning Neha’s trust comes at a price—Jason must tie himself to her bloodline through the Princess Mahiya, a woman with secrets so dangerous, she trusts no one. Least of all an enemy spymaster.

Noah knows that Sam will never leak the scientific research…so he must find another way to get it, while keeping Sam close. But someone else is after Sam’s secret. Who is the other spy infiltrating The Others? If their genetic secrets get into the wrong hands, all hell could break loose. Now Noah’s true loyalty is put to the test as he fights to protect The Others―and his beloved Sam―and find the imposter…before it’s too late.
9. Gossamer Wing by Delphine Dryden
After losing her husband to a rogue French agent, Charlotte Moncrieffe wants to make her mark in international espionage.

Her spymaster father has one condition: He won’t send her to Paris without an ironclad cover.
Dexter Hardison prefers inventing to politics, but his title as Makesmith Baron and his formidable skills make him an ideal husband-imposter for Charlotte. And the unorthodox undercover arrangement would help him in his own field of discovery.
But from Charlotte and Dexter’s marriage of convenience comes a distraction—a passion that complicates an increasingly dangerous mission. For Charlotte, however, the thought of losing Dexter also opens her heart to a thrilling new future of love and adventure.

Anastasia might possess upgraded parts and programming, but the scientists never could cure her of her biggest weakness, jealousy. The volatile emotion made her walk away from love once. Can she overcome it and recognize the truth? Or will she continue to let the military manipulate her emotional strings?
