And Pyper needs his help. When she becomes target numero uno and the prime suspect in the shop owner’s death, it appears her ghost holds the key to solving the murder. In between stolen kisses, Pyper will need to get to the bottom of all of his secrets if she wants to stay alive and out of jail…and maybe finally get that date he keeps promising her.



 
Whiskey, Vamps, and Thieves - Selene Charles
Meet Scarlett Smith, Southern Vampire Detective…

Not too long ago she was just a regular Southern Belle in love with her soldier, dreaming of a life full of babies and white picket fences.

Now she solves murders and drinks a little type-O on the side. No big deal, she's certainly nothing special or amazing...right? Except every once in a while she senses something stirring inside of her. Something dark. Something ancient. And something very, very powerful. But for now it's just easier to pretend she's nothing more than a vampire with a badge and a gun who just so happens to have the hots for not one, but two different shifters one of whom is her step-brother.


 
Sterling - Dannika Dark

Zoë Merrick knew nothing about immortals until she was brutally attacked by one and left for dead. When she awakens, a strange power is coursing through her veins. It’s not until a warrior named Justus De Gradi walks into her life that she discovers she’s a Mage—able to manipulate energy and use it as a weapon. Justus vows to serve as her protector and teacher, but she’s still struggling with letting go of her past. Will Zoë learn to accept her fate and trust those around her, or will she fall victim to the predators in the Breed world?

 
A Spirited Manor - Kate Danley

Grieving widow Clara O'Hare accepts an invitation to a séance in the remote country home of Lord Horace Oroberg. Joining her around the table are Oroberg’s cad of a son and his mousy fiancée; her overbearing mother; a renowned scientist; a lovely suffragette; and the dashing young medium, Wesley Lowenherz.  But before long, the group’s fascination with the spirit world calls up something sinister, and Clara and Wesley are pulled together to solve a murder most foul.

 
Cast in Angelfire - SM Reine
As a half-angel, half-human mage, Marion Garin is the most powerful witch in the world.  Or so she’s been told.

Unfortunately, she’s lost her memory, and now Marion doesn’t know much of anything. Casting magic? Forget about it. It’s not an accident, either. Someone powerful wanted to take Marion out of preternatural politics, and they succeeded.

She’s told that a man named Seth Wilder could help, but she’ll have to find him first. He’s been missing for years. Marion needs to track Seth down and fix her memory before her unknown enemy finishes the job…

What's on the horizon

As I sit here going through emails, probably the most common question I'm receiving is will there be more of the Seven series now that's it's over?

I received a lot of similar questions when I ended the Mageri series, and even though readers had to wait, that the wait was worth it for Simon to get his own story in RISK and for there to be another glimpse in their world via THE GIFT.

This early on, I can't say yes or not. And when I end a series, I don't like to slam the door shut. I love giving readers the gift of allowing their imaginations to run wild with all the "what ifs" while also allowing myself the opportunity to revisit through a novella or spinoff if a story beckons me. I hope  as a fan you'll stay on my newsletter and keep checking in so you don't miss any news on upcoming projects, because you never know what might be just around the corner.

I love the Seven world as much as I did the Mageri. I became close to those characters as I write them, their personalities so strong that they leap off the page. It's always hard to leave behind the familiar and step into the unknown, but the journey was worth it when I left the Mageri series and began a new story that captivated the imaginations of so many readers. I love the newness and challenge of a series as much as I love the comfort of an old one.

Characters become home. But so often when the story is dragged out, it erases that love readers have with bad books. When you're talking about immortals and semi-immortals who will live on for thousands of years and beyond, there's no real conclusive ending. Not when you think about it. I could go on, but that would mean major shifts in the story and timeline, and readers might not like it.

Sooooooooooooo, as for whether or not there will be more of the Seven world, that door was left open a crack.

I will say one thing: a spinoff would not be loaded with cameos, and it might not even be comparable to the others in how the book or series is structured. That could mean it's even better. As a writer, I'm more challenged with creating something new and not mirroring what I've already done.

I totally plan to write more paranormal romance, just as I am currently putting out more urban fantasy romance with the CROSSBREED series. What's the difference? Urban fantasy focuses more on plot than romance, and most urban fantasies - even with romance - center around one protagonist, whereas in paranormal romance, each book is devoted to a new couple.

If you've read all my books, then I think you'll see how different they are. Yet my world is the same, which will always give you familiar ground, and it makes crossovers (if any) even that much more special. And yep, I totally put hints in my books that sometimes you won't pick up until the second read or after you've read the other. Like in TWO MINUTES when someone died, a chess piece was put on their grave. It's hinted to but never said - Simon Hunt did that. Readers who read the Mageri series first might have picked up on that. If you're curious about chronological reading order of how all my books list, go here: http://www.dannikadark.net/p/reading-order.html

I cannot wait for CROSSBREED. There is a possibility I could release other books or even another series while the Crossbreed series is running, but it's only January and too early to tell. I'm always working on side projects, but it's just a matter of determining what I can manage. As much as readers want more books, I know you guys don't want any of them to feel rushed, so that's why I always take my time with each and every story, making sure it's absolutely the way it was meant to be before I even announce the release. :)

Happy reading!
