Morning Star


Pierce Brown - February 9, 2016

Morning Star CoverRed Rising thrilled readers and announced the presence of a talented new author. Golden Son  changed the game and took the story of Darrow to the next level. Now comes the exhilarating conclusion to the Red Rising Trilogy: Morning Star. Darrow would have lived in peace, but his enemies brought him war. The Gold overlords demanded his obedience, hanged his wife, and enslaved his people. But Darrow is determined to fight back. Risking everything to transform himself and breach Gold society, Darrow has battled to survive the cutthroat rivalries that breed Society’s mightiest warriors, climbed the ranks, and waited patiently to unleash the revolution that will tear the hierarchy apart from within.   Finally, the time has come.   But devotion to honor and hunger for vengeance run deep on both sides. Darrow and his comrades-in-arms face powerful enemies without scruple or mercy. Among them are some Darrow once considered friends. To win, Darrow will need to inspire those shackled in darkness to break their chains, unmake the world their cruel masters have built, and claim a destiny too long denied—and too glorious to surrender. Praise for Morning Star   “You could call [Pierce] Brown science fiction’s best-kept secret. In Morning Star, the trilogy’s devastating and inspiring final chapter, . . . he flirts with volume, oscillating between thundering space escapes and hushed, tense parleys between rivals, where the cinematic dialogue oozes such specificity and suspense you could almost hear a pin drop between pages. His achievement is in creating an uncomfortably familiar world of flaw, fear, and promise.” — Entertainment Weekly   “A page-turning epic filled with twists and turns . . . The conclusion to Brown’s saga is simply stellar.” — Booklist (starred review) “Multilayered and seething with characters who exist in a shadow world between history and myth, much as in Frank Herbert’s Dune . . . an ambitious and satisfying conclusion to a monumental saga.” — Kirkus Reviews From the Hardcover edition.

Breakdown


Jonathan Kellerman - February 2, 2016

Breakdown CoverBestselling author Jonathan Kellerman has been universally hailed as the master of psychological suspense, and the blockbuster new thriller featuring Alex Delaware and Milo Sturgis confirms his status as today’s preeminent practitioner of saber-sharp storytelling.   Psychologist Dr. Alex Delaware meets beautiful and emotionally fragile TV actress Zelda Chase when called upon to evaluate her five-year-old son, Ovid. Years later, Alex is unexpectedly reunited with Zelda when she is involuntarily committed after a bizarre psychotic episode. Shortly after Zelda’s release, an already sad situation turns tragic when she is discovered dead on the grounds of a palatial Bel Air estate. Having experienced more than enough of L.A.’s dark side to recognize the scent of evil, Alex turns to his friend LAPD Lieutenant Milo Sturgis for help in finding out who ended Zelda’s broken life.   At the same time, Alex is caught up in another quest: the search for Zelda’s missing son. And when other victims vanish from the same upscale neighborhood, worry turns to terror.   As Alex struggles to piece together the brief rise and steep fall of a gorgeous, talented actress, he and Milo unveil shattered dreams, the corruption of a family, and a grotesque betrayal of innocence. With each devastating revelation and damning clue, Alex’s brilliant mind is challenged as never before—and his determination grows to see a killer caged and the truth set free.   Praise for Jonathan Kellerman   “Jonathan Kellerman’s psychology skills and dark imagination are a potent literary mix.” —Los Angeles Times   “Kellerman doesn’t just write psychological thrillers—he owns the genre.” —Detroit Free Press From the Hardcover edition.

Audrey Carlan - September 30, 2015

September CoverVegas, Viscous Exes, and Ventilators.  My life felt like a fast ride on a too short highway. Coming home should be roses and rainbows, but  nothing that comes out of the desert blooms free. I was most certainly not free. I’d missed my payment  to Blaine, owed the last client a hundred grand I didn’t have, and my father was on his deathbed. To  make matters worse, Wes was missing in action. As in, no one had seen or heard from him in three  weeks. Devastation didn’t begin to explain where my mental state was at. Like anything life had thrown my way, I pulled on my big girl panties, not the sexy lacy ones I enjoyed  teasing my guy with, but the kind that said, “This ass means business.”  I had no choice but to make the decision I made.   My ex, the man that ruined the concept of love for me, put my father in the hospital, was about to get  everything he ever wanted…at least that’s what I led him to believe.

March


Audrey Carlan - August 4, 2015

March CoverA fiancée. I’m going to Chicago to pretend to be some Italian Stallion’s future wife. Why a massive hunk, boxer, and rich restaurateur needs a fake bride is beyond me. Then again, I’m not paid to know why. I’m paid $100,000 to be his escort, or in this case, the woman he’s supposedly “going” to marry. The moment I met Antony “Tony” Fasano, I thought I might have lost my ability to breathe. In my twenty four years of life, I’d not seen anything like him. Clad only in a small towel precariously dangling from his hips--water droplets streaming down every inch of his muscular frame--I knew right then and there, I’d finally seen male perfection in all its raw glory. What happened next blew me away. It was now abundantly clear why he needed me...a fake fiancée.
