When the Heart Lies
by Christina North

The biggest secrets have a habit of catching up with you…

Romance novelist Kinsley Wentworth, a young mother who occasionally suffers from depression, anxiety, and low self-esteem, has a knack for approaching life as if she were a character in one of her novels. Kinsley is desperately in need of love, the one thing missing from her marriage.

Bad decisions can have terrifying consequences…

After a failed attempt at reconciliation with her estranged husband Nick, Kinsley meets Wayde online, and they develop a friendship. He’s allegedly searching for her missing brother. Wayde convinces Kinsley that he will help her find her brother if she moves to Florida with her young son, but Kinsley soon finds herself trapped in an abusive and potentially life-threatening situation.

A knight in shining armor…

Unknown to Kinsley, she is not totally alone; she has a protector. Jackson, a private investigator hired to watch over her and her son, is always close at hand. A little too close, Jackson is falling for a woman in a hopeless situation.

A fairytale happily ever after?

Kinsley is convinced she can forgo her own need for love to provide her son with a traditional family. But Jackson is determined to give Kinsley the space and time she needs, confident she will figure out that he is the reality she has been looking for all along.

Weaned on rejection and raised on neglect by a bitter stepmother, she’s unsure how to mother her own children, passing on what she believes are the proper roles of men and women. After a life filled with tragedy and heartbreak, she realizes she may have created a respectful, obedient daughter, but she’s also made her meek and submissive. Her son, on the other hand, has been groomed from birth to assume his father’s role as lord and master of the family. Unfortunately, he also inherits his quick temper.

The Paris Vendetta
by
Steve Berry

DescriptionWhen Napoleon Bonaparte died in exile in 1821, he took to the grave a powerful secret. As general and emperor, he had stolen immeasurable riches from palaces, national treasuries, and even the Knights of Malta and the Vatican. In his final days, his British captors hoped to learn where the loot lay hidden. But he told them nothing, and in his will he made no mention of the treasure. Or did he?

The Concho Kid
by
J.C. Hulsey

DescriptionWhen sixteen year old Benjamin Bradley kills his step-daddy, he is transformed into a ruthless killer, seemly without a conscience. The sheriff forces him to leave town or stand trial for murder. He then shoots the sheriff in the back and kills him. Killing seems to come so easy for him, that he kills the livery stable owner, steals a horse and rides out of town. He's not only a bad guy. He’s the worst of the worse. He’s a cold blooded killer. He kills indiscriminately. No one is safe when he goes on a killing rampage.

Trouble in Paradise
by
Robert B. Parker

DescriptionStiles Island is a wealthy and exclusive enclave separated by a bridge from the Massachusetts coast town of Paradise. James Macklin sees Stiles Island as the ultimate investment opportunity: all he needs to do is invade the island, blow up the bridge, and loot the island. To realize his investment, Macklin, along with his devoted girlfriend, Faye, assembles a crew of fellow ex-cons --all experts in their fields--including Wilson Cromartie, a fearsome Apache. James Macklin is a bad man--a very bad man. And Wilson Cromartie, known as Crow, is even worse.
