The Psycho Before Christmas by Michelle Hercules

Everyone thinks I’m the perfect daughter, a model student, and the star of the track team. But when an asshole hurts me, he’ll find out I have a darker side.

Then my plan of retaliation is foiled by Killer Santa, a psychopath who offed my ex before I could.

I spent a year hating him for denying me my revenge. I couldn’t have foreseen that the killer who terrorized our hometown days before Christmas was none other than my stepbrother, a sinfully gorgeous pain in my ass.

I hadn’t seen him since we left for colleges on opposite sides of the country. Now we’re back under the same roof, and all the feelings I suppressed return with a vengeance. Eric is my only weakness.

But it turns out we’re not the only monsters in town. Someone is hunting us, and it’s kill or be killed.

Sounds like a good Christmas to me.

*Author’s note: Stay away if you don’t love unhinged heroes with stabbing tendencies. This novella contains dark themes.

Queen of Madness by Lee Jacquot

The greatest weakness any man can ever have is a woman.
The inherent need to protect them can become overwhelming and all consuming. It makes us think irrationally and do stupid things. In my case, falling down a rabbit hole.
My sister made a mistake. One that put us in debt with the Italian mob who owns half the state, and as payment they’ve enlisted me to work for them.
Only it isn’t them I’ll be working for.
It’s for her. Onyx Embros.
She’s a ghost, a legend, the head of their rival mafia family, and the queen of Wonderland.
In order to save my family, I have to act as her guard so they can find a way to kill her. But the longer I stay, the more I realize Onyx isn’t who I thought she was, and neither am I.
Turns out, I’m just as mad.
