Death by Dragon by Madeleine Ribbon
Fell Harwick, half-incubus and witch extraordinaire, knows how he'll die. Ever since he was a child, he's had visions of a dragon tearing him to pieces. Since he's not terribly fond of the idea--and the power-hungry vampire that killed his mother is now after him for his unprecedented healing abilities--he's gone into hiding. But when a pair of shifters get shot in front of his cabin in the woods, he feels obligated to keep them safe.
Jett and Theodore are members of the local resistance, fighting against the same vamp that wants Fell. Theodore is a beautiful, tragic mess, and Jett hates all incubi on principle--something Fell finds out as he tries to take energy to power his healing magic.
Jett and Fell might have been able to work around one paranormal prejudice. Jett even encourages Fell into sex with Theodore when he needs energy. But then Fell discovers that his future killer has been sleeping on his couch.
Over a century ago Illusionist David Berkeley committed suicide in his mansion by the sea, thus dooming his restless spirit to wander forever. Or so the local legend goes...
Professor Rhys Davies, a part-time parapsychologist, is writing a book on California hauntings and he believes the crumbling ruins of Berkeley House will make a terrific chapter -- if he can gain access to the house and grounds. The only obstacle is brooding cop and self-appointed caretaker, Sam Devlin. As obstacles go, Devlin is a big one.
But you know what they say. The bigger they are, the harder they fall...
"Ghost of a Chance" first appeared in the 2007 anthology, Scared Stiff, where Josh joined best-selling authors William Maltese, Sarah Black and Laura Baumbach for a quartet of very different stories of m/m supernatural doings that had readers panting (in more ways than one) under the covers.
Another great story by Josh Lanyon and another superb addition to my Halloween library. Rhys and Sam may seem like complete opposites on the surface but underneath they mesh perfectly. A Ghost of a Chance offers up a little bit of everything: mystery, paranormal, romance, and of course two equally stubborn men butting heads.

Romanus by Mary Calmes
Stopping to offer help one sultry summer night, Mason James is unprepared for the change that this simple act of kindness will bring. After giving an old man a ride home, Mason discovers a new, magical, and even dangerous world he cannot hope to understand. But he also finds Luc Toussaint and is intoxicated at first sight... and even the secret Luc protects won't be enough to keep Mason away from the truth of his heritage and their love.
Witches always come in threes. For the Mallory clan, those three are Artemis, Bella, and … well, Kevin.
Disappointingly normal, Kevin has spent his life in the shadow of his siblings, one brilliant, the other staggeringly powerful. But when the killing of a witch up on Cairn Hill coincides with the arrival of a handsome stranger in their sleepy home-town, Kevin finds himself going undercover to untangle the mystery behind the murder. He knows better than to get too close to a witch-killer, but as the connection between them deepens, Kevin can't help falling under Peter's spell.
Can Kevin keep his true nature secret? Or will he give it all to a man who can destroy him?
On the trail of a rogue witch, Peter never expected to meet anyone like Kevin Mallory. He can't let himself be distracted by green eyes and strong hands; he has his duty, and his duty is everything. But as tensions wind them both to breaking point, Peter finds it harder and harder to resist what his every instinct tells him to do.
Will Peter deny temptation to do his duty? Or will he risk everything for the one thing he never knew he needed?
Witches, witch hunters, warlocks, oh my. I have never read this author before but I will be keeping an eye out for more. Kevin is hard not to like, you just want to wrap him up in a hug and let him know how much power he really has. Peter's certainty that all witches are evil will definitely try your patience but we all have lessons to learn, how Peter and Kevin come to terms with the truths makes for a very good story. I didn't really think I was going to like Artemis too much at first but he proves to be a better brother than I expected. Throw in the evil warlock and boy is this a great addition to your paranormal reading.

Tyler's favorite quote and something she always has tucked in the back of her mind as she writes her fictions: "Everything you can imagine is real."―Picasso.
