Grimspace (Sirantha Jax, #1)
As the carrier of a rare gene, Sirantha Jax has the ability to jump ships through grimspace—a talent which makes her a highly prized navigator for the Corp. Then a crash landing kills everyone on board, leaving Jax in a jail cell with no memory of the crash. But her fun's not over. A group of rogue fighters frees her…for a price: her help in overthrowing the established order
The Missing
From the national bestselling author whose sexy stories -you will not soon forget-(Romance Review) comes a brand-new, sinfully sexy romantic suspense novel.Her psychic gift drove away the man she loved- and years later has drawn him back to her-As a teenager, Taige Branch hated her psychic gift. No one could understand-except for Cullen Morgan, the boy who stole her heart. He did his best to accept her, until his mother was brutally murdered-and he couldn-t forgive Taige for not preventing it.Now a widowed father, Cullen Morgan has never forgotten Taige. But what brings her back into his life is another tragedy. His beloved little girl has been kidnapped, and Taige is his only hope of finding her. Working together against the clock, Cullen and Taige can-t help but wonder whether-if they find his daughter in time-it isn-t too late for the overpowering love that still burns between them

Cheerleader Isobel Lanley is horrified when she is paired with Varen Nethers for an English project, which is due—so unfair—on the day of the rival game. Cold and aloof, sardonic and sharp-tongued, Varen makes it clear he’d rather not have anything to do with her either. But when Isobel discovers strange writing in his journal, she can’t help but give this enigmatic boy with the piercing eyes another look. 

Soon, Isobel finds herself making excuses to be with Varen. Steadily pulled away from her friends and her possessive boyfriend, Isobel ventures deeper and deeper into the dream world Varen has created through the pages of his notebook, a realm where the terrifying stories of Edgar Allan Poe come to life. 

As her world begins to unravel around her, Isobel discovers that dreams, like words, hold more power than she ever imagined, and that the most frightening realities are those of the mind. Now she must find a way to reach Varen before he is consumed by the shadows of his own nightmares. 

His life depends on it.

That guy on the 3rd cover always freaks me out, lol, but still sounds like a good story. I might put it on my wishlist for the sis-in-law, she loves that genre.
