Saundra Mitchell
Description: "Something happened to Ava. The curving scar on her face is proof. But Ava would rather keep that something hidden--buried deep in her heart and her soul. She has her best friend Syd, and she has her tattoos--a colorful quilt, like a security blanket, over her whole body--and now, suddenly, she has Hailey. Beautiful, sweet Hailey, who seems to like Ava as much as she likes her. And Ava isn't letting anything get in the way of finally, finally seeking peace. But in the woods on the outskirts of town, the traces of someone else's secrets lie frozen, awaiting Ava's discovery--and what Ava finds threatens to topple the carefully-constructed wall of normalcy that she's spent years building. Secrets leave scars. But when the secret in question is not your own--do you ignore the truth and walk away? Or do you uncover it from its shallow grave, and let it reopen old wounds--wounds that have finally begun to heal?"-- Provided by goodreads.com.

Description: In 1872, New Orleans is a city ruled by the dead. But to seventeen-year-old Celine Rousseau, New Orleans is a safe haven after she's forced to flee her life as a dressmaker in Paris. Taken in by the sisters of the Ursuline convent in the middle of the carnival season, Celine is quickly enraptured by the vibrant city, from its music to its fancy soirées and even its danger. She becomes embroiled in the city's glitzy underworld, known as La Cour des Lions, after catching the eye of the group's enigmatic leader, Sébastien Saint Germain. When the body of one of the girls from the convent is found in Sébastien's own lair--the second dead girl to turn up in recent weeks--Celine battles her attraction to Sébastien and suspicions about his guilt along with the shame of her own horrible secret. After a third murder, New Orleans becomes gripped by the terror of a serial killer on the loose--one who has now set Celine in his sights. As the murderer stalks her, Celine finally takes matters into her own hands, only to find herself caught in the midst of an age-old feud between the darkest creatures of the night, where the price of forbidden love is her life.

Description: In Garner County, girls are told they have the power to lure grown men from their beds, to drive women mad with jealousy ; that their very skin emits a powerful aphrodisiac. That is why they're banished for their sixteenth year, to release their magic into the wild so they can return purified and ready for marriage. But not all of them will make it home alive. Tierney James dreams of a society that doesn't pit friend against friend or woman against woman. She fears the brutal elements, the poachers in the woods, men who are waiting for a chance to grab one of the girls in order to make a fortune on the black market. But her greatest threat may very well be the other girls. -- adapted from jacket
