Un'indagine di Cole McGinnis

Per Cole McGinnis, ex poliziotto diventato investigatore privato, ogni giorno presenta una nuova sfida che spesso comporta, purtroppo, sofferenza e morte. Claudia, la segretaria che gli fa da madre, si sta ancora riprendendo da un colpo d’arma da fuoco, mentre il suo ragazzo Kim Jae-Min, non ancora dichiarato, di punto in bianco si trova a dover ospitare la sorella adolescente. Nel frattempo, Cole affronta i suoi problemi di famiglia, in particolare quel misterioso fratellastro giapponese che il suo fratello maggiore, Mike, è deciso ad accogliere a braccia aperte.

Come se i suoi drammi personali non bastassero, Cole viene avvicinato da Madame Sun, un’indovina i cui clienti stanno morendo a una velocità allarmante. Lei è convinta che qualcuno li stia uccidendo e vuole che siano svolte delle indagini al riguardo, ma la polizia pensa che si stia immaginando tutto. Cole accetta il caso nella speranza di tranquillizzarla, ma si trova davanti a un nodo gordiano di menzogne e tradimenti in cui nessuno è chi dovrebbe essere, e la morte sembra l’unica carta presente nel mazzo dell’indovina.

A Men from GLEN Mission

So-called monsters won’t hold these spies back!

For two secret agents on a mission to a secluded Romanian village, the toughest fight they face may not be against the folktale monsters lurking in the foggy mountains and old ruins, but against their unlikely attraction to each other.

Keller Key is the top operative at the covert Global Law Enforcement Network—and boy does he know it. Sexy half-Ukrainian, half-Korean Sevastyan Song is a close second. When the agents go undercover to investigate an old friend’s suspicious death, it soon becomes clear something sinister is afoot in the ancient forest and decrepit abbey. If an evil organization doesn’t spell the end of them, the angry locals might. But if they’re going to conquer their enemies, they need to keep their hands off each other and their minds on the case, in a rivals-to-lovers paranormal mash-up that gives new meaning to spy-on-spy action.

Getting His Man

A love story worthy of an old movie… with a new twist.

Artie needs a hero, a man like those he’s always revered in Golden Age films. His drug-dealing jerk of a roommate got him arrested, and since his savior isn’t likely to sweep in and save the day, Artie calls a bail bondsman.

August has always imagined himself a hero from a black-and-white movie, but he’s never found a man willing to let him play that role—at least not until he gets the call from Artie.

Both of their dreams might come true, but not before August must use his skills as a bounty hunter as well as a bondsman. Artie is on the run for his life, and August must protect him and help him clear his name. Only then can they both finally get their man.

The Shifters: Book Twelve

Agent Poe loves being part of the Agency—an organization devoted to protecting shape-shifters—and he especially loves his mate of only a couple of months, Nordik, the nigh immortal master bear shifter. He has the best of both worlds—the man he loves and the job he loves. But when Nordik reveals he’s ready to rejoin society and accompany Poe on his missions, Poe must take the next step and make them a full partnership.

After the Agency intercepts a message from Arcas, the leader of the Knights of the Dawn—a cult bent on the annihilation of shifters—meant for his followers, their job gets a whole lot harder. The Knights don’t bother keeping their activities hidden anymore, stretching the Agency’s resources thinner than ever.

After a near-fatal mission almost costs Poe his life, Nordik insists on a break for both of them. They visit Poe’s family in Ireland and learn that true danger lies not without, but within. There’s no greater betrayal than that of a loved one.
