Under Suspicion (The Underworld Detection Agency Chronicles) by Hannah Jayne
Being a human immune to magic helped Sophie Lawson get promoted. It’s also made her a major, very reluctant player in a game that stretches beyond even the Underworld. Having handsome buttoned-down Englishman Will as her new guardian is one tempting blessing, especially since sexy fallen angel Alex is mysteriously MIA lately. But as a frightening number of demons start disappearing around the city, Sophie suspects that an Armageddon-level prophecy is about to become everyone’s nightmare. And her investigation is testing her bravery – and Will’s unexpected vulnerability – in ways neither could predict. Now Sophie and Will are fast running out of time as an unstoppable evil prepares to lay waste to demons and humans alike.

Things in Morganville look grim, especially since vampire Amelie—the town founder—has been infected by the master draug’s bite.

The Hunt by Andrew Fukuda
Gene is different from everyone else around him.  He can’t run with lightning speed, sunlight doesn’t hurt him and he doesn’t have an unquenchable lust for blood.  Gene is a human, and he knows the rules.  Keep the truth a secret.  It’s the only way to stay alive in a world of night—a world where humans are considered a delicacy and hunted for their blood. When he’s chosen for a once in a lifetime opportunity to hunt the last remaining humans, Gene’s carefully constructed life begins to crumble around him.  He’s thrust into the path of a girl who makes him feel things he never thought possible—and into a ruthless pack of hunters whose suspicions about his true nature are growing. Now that Gene has finally found something worth fighting for, his need to survive is stronger than ever—but is it worth the cost of his humanity?

Creatures of the Night: In Search of Ghosts, Vampires, Werewolves and Demons by Gregory L. Reece
Intrigued by some of the most sinister legends of Western civilization, Gregory Reece goes in search of answers to the question: why is our culture so obsessed by the eerie and the macabre? Why have the Twilight and True Blood series skyrocketed in popularity, with millions of readers and primetime television and movie adaptations? Whether tracking night-stalking werewolves, chanting black magic mantras with Satanists, or interviewing a modern-day Count Dracula, Reece is determined to uncover the truth in this bold and startling journey into a world that has so often seemed to lie beyond the limits of rational comprehension.
Coming out May 8, 2012.

Beauty: An Anita Blake Vampire Hunter Outtake by Laurell K. Hamilton
This one is simply an ebook short story by Hamilton that, well, sounds just like a story she has already told 20 billion times. Ugh, anyway… With a vampire like Jean Claude around, it’s far too easy for Anita Blake to doubt her own appearance—and the hold it has on those who love her. But one hot tub and two incredibly sexy men—Jean Claude and Asher—will make her feel like the most lusted-after woman alive…or undead. Not bad for a mere human…
Coming out May 8, 2012.

Vampire Kisses 9: Immortal Hearts by Ellen Schreiber
The final book in the Vampire Kisses series. Athena “Stormy” Sterling is coming to Dullsville, and Raven is both excited and panicked in anticipation of Alexander’s little sister’s visit. Stormy’s visit stirs up the perfect immortal whirlwind. Raven is forced to take a good look at what it would really mean to be a vampire in the Sterling family, aside from some of the things she already loves, like shunning the sun and sleeping in a coffin with Alexander. When Raven compares her life with Stormy’s, she can see that it’s not all starry skies and black roses. But Raven knows she’s always wanted to be a vampire. Alexander is as romantic and dreamy as ever, and though he keeps showing Raven how much he loves her, will she ultimately be able to convince him that it’s the right thing to turn her?

Darkness Before Dawn by J. A. London
Only sunlight can save us. We built the wall to keep them out, to keep us safe. But it also makes us prisoners, trapped in what’s left of our ravaged city, fearing nightfall. After the death of my parents, it’s up to me—as the newest delegate for humanity—to bargain with our vampire overlord. I thought I was ready. I thought I knew everything there was to know about the monsters. Then again, nothing could have prepared me for Lord Valentine . . . or his son. Maybe not all vampires are killers. Maybe it’s safe to let one in. Only one thing is certain: Even the wall is not enough. A war is coming and we cannot hide forever.
