New York Times and USA Today bestselling author, Deanna Chase, brings you book two in the Crescent City Fae series. Finding the perfect dress can be hell… especially when a stranger tries to gun you down in broad daylight. Void agent and magical baker extraordinaire, Willow Rhoswen has been anticipating her first date with Talisen Kavanagh since she was sixteen. After eight years of waiting, there are only two things that can stand in her way—an assassination attempt and a new game-changing drug. Talisen’s invented a new elixir that creates superhumans, ones that can rival vampire strength, and everyone wants it. Including the vampires. With Willow’s life on the line, he makes a deal with the devil, while she’s forced to accept the always-strings-attached protection from the most notorious vampire organization in New Orleans. But when Talisen and his drug go missing, Willow will stop at nothing to find him, even if it means working with her vampire-ex, David. With souped-up humans, dangerous vampires, and more questions than answers, Willow has less than twenty-four hours to find him before everything changes forever.

What was it like to grow up black and female in the segregated South? To answer this question, LaKisha Simmons blends social history and cultural studies, recreating children's streets and neighborhoods within Jim Crow New Orleans and offering a rare look into black girls' personal lives. Simmons argues that these children faced the difficult task of adhering to middle-class expectations of purity and respectability even as they encountered the daily realities of Jim Crow violence, which included interracial sexual aggression, street harassment, and presumptions of black girls' impurity. Simmons makes use of oral histories, the black and white press, social workers' reports, police reports, girls' fiction writing, and photography to tell the stories of individual girls: some from poor, working-class families; some from middle-class, "respectable" families; and some caught in the Jim Crow judicial system. These voices come together to create a group biography of ordinary girls living in an extraordinary time, girls who did not intend to make history but whose stories transform our understanding of both segregation and childhood.

As the orangutans whoop and the champagne is sipped, no one knows that murder is in the air at the Zoo-To-Do, the swank affair of the New Orleans spring social season. Then shots are fired and events quickly escalate. Ryley Worthington, an amateur sleuth, rushes into the fray to investigate. The victim is the wife of Brad Byrnes, her best friend and long-time secret flame. The tragedy that affects Brad stirs hidden and unfulfilled emotions as Ryley determines to get to the bottom of the murder. Her discoveries shock and unsettle her when she realizes her closest friends are involved. She is forced to re-examine her values and to come to terms with her deepest fears and insecurities. Her own sanity begins to unravel as the trail draws her into the dark world of maniacal wannabes and twisted egos. Drawing on Laurie Ellis's personal knowledge of the mysteries and romance that make the Crescent City such a unique place, A Mind to Kill is at once a mystery and a study of the power of love and friendship. It is a story of transformation as a murder investigation becomes the test of individual resolve and one woman's journey toward the attainment of personal fulfillment.
