Heroes and Babies

He can’t save everyone…

Firefighter Lucas Attiker is mired in guilt by his inability to save his young son, who perished in a fire three years ago. When he rescues a troubled young man and his baby daughter from a Colorado forest fire, Lucas finally begins to forgive himself. But the wildfire is only the beginning of the dangers facing them.

Hell-bent on saving his daughter from his crime boss ex, Owen Michaels is on the run with the baby in tow—fleeing both the killers who are after him and the US Marshals Service deputies assigned to protect him. When his desperate flight lands them in the midst of an inferno, the man who saves them offers hope for more than just survival.

They might have escaped a blazing forest and a hail of bullets, but both men will need to risk their lives—and their hearts—to give a little girl a loving family… if they can make it out alive.

A Merrychurch Mysteries Case

Many consider Naomi Teedle the village witch. Most people avoid her except when they have need of her herbs and potions. She lives alone on the outskirts of Merrychurch, and that’s fine by everyone—old Mrs. Teedle is not the most pleasant of people. But when she is found murdered, her mouth bulging with her own herbs and roots, suddenly no one has a bad word to say about her.

Jonathon de Mountford is adjusting to life up at the manor house, but it’s not a solitary life: pub landlord Mike Tattersall sees to that. Jonathon is both horrified to learn of the recent murder and confused by the sudden reversal of public opinion. Surely someone in the village had reason to want her dead? He and Mike decide it’s time for them to step in and “help” the local police with their investigation. Only problem is, their sleuthing uncovers more than one suspect—and the list is getting longer….

Fish Out of Water: Book Five

Jackson Rivers has always bucked the rules—and bucking the rules of recovery is no exception. Now that he and Ellery are starting their own law firm, there’s no reason he can’t rush into trouble and take the same risks as always, right?

Maybe not. Their first case is a doozy, involving porn stars, drug empires, and daddy issues, and their client, Henry Worrall, wants to be an active participant in his own defense. As Henry and Jackson fight the bad guys and each other to find out who dumped the porn star in the trash can, Jackson must reexamine his assumptions that four months of rest and a few good conversations have made him all better inside. 

Jackson keeps crashing his bicycle of self-care and a successful relationship, and Ellery wonders what’s going to give out first—Jackson’s health or Ellery’s patience. Jackson’s body hasn’t forgiven him for past crimes. Can Ellery forgive him for his current sins? And can they keep Henry from going to jail for sleeping with the wrong guy at the wrong time?

Being a fish out of water is tough—but if you give a fish a bicycle, how’s he going to swim?

After an attack by the Coalition leaves THIRDS Team Leader Sloane Brodie critically injured, agent Dexter J. Daley swears to make Beck Hogan pay for what he’s done.

Nous reformons le groupe.

À ces quatre mots, un frisson glacé dévala le long de la colonne vertébrale de Miki St John, surtout quand ils émanaient avec une ferveur presque religieuse de son frère en tout, sauf par le sang, Damien Mitchell. Cependant, ces mots n’étaient rien, comparés à ce qu’il ajouta.

Et nous partons en tournée.

Quand Crossroads Gin prend la route, Damien espère que cela les rapprochera. Il y a quelque chose de magique dans le fait d’être en tournée, surtout lorsque vous voyagez dans une fourgonnette où il n’y a pas de roadies, de gérants ou d’amants pour servir de tampon. Le groupe est déjà proche, mais Damien sait qu’ils peuvent l’être davantage… des sortes de frères, pas uniquement liés par des liens familiaux, mais aussi par leur intense amour de la musique.

Tandis qu’ils voyagent d’un concert à l’autre, le groupe est hanté par des erreurs du passé et des démons personnels, mais ils continuent. Pour Miki, Damie, Forest et Rafe, la scène est l’endroit où ils prennent véritablement vie et la musique qu’ils jouent est aussi importante pour eux que l’air qu’ils respirent.

Mais les démons et les problèmes ne les laisseront pas tranquilles, au cours des kilomètres parcourus, le groupe fera face à ses plus grands défis : dépasser ses défauts les plus profonds et ne pas s’entre-tuer les uns les autres.

Benvenuti al Dim Sum Asylum, il Manicomio dei Dim Sum, in una San Francisco dove un caso è noioso e banale quando la polizia deve inseguire una statuetta alta mezzo metro con degli impressionanti baffi alla Fu Manchu, che è scomparsa da un santuario e se ne corre in giro per Chinatown lasciandosi dietro una scia di magia sessuale e caos.

Roku MacCormick, ispettore della divisione Crimini Arcani di Chinatown, deve affrontare una quantità di sfide che vanno ben al di là del suo retaggio umano-faerie, dei draghi ringhianti che stanno a guardia dei portali di C-Town e dell’esplosione di una fabbrica di noodle. Infatti, oltre alle interferenze di una famiglia mafiosa che vuole tenere a distanza e a un serial killer esperto di incantesimi che deve assolutamente trovare, dopo un caso andato a rotoli, a Roku tocca accollarsi Trent Leonard, un nuovo partner di cui non si può ancora fidare.

Anche se preferirebbe restarsene a casa con Bob the Cat a riempirsi di whiskey fino ad addormentarsi, ogni giorno Roku indossa distintivo e pistola, deciso a servire e proteggere la città che ama. Quando l’oscuro e sotterraneo mondo magico di Chinatown rende la sua vita un inferno e il caso su cui lavora si rivela letale, è Trent che bada a coprirgli le spalle e, a detta del suo nuovo partner, anche a guarire il suo cuore. Per Roku, però, Trent è pericoloso quanto i mostri e i criminali che hanno giurato di abbattere.

Fische auf dem Trockenen: Buch Eins

Privatdetektiv Jackson Rivers wuchs auf den rauen Straßen von Del Paso Heights auf und traut Polizisten nicht – obwohl er einer war. Als der Mann, den er als seinen Bruder betrachtet, des Mordes an einem Polizisten beschuldigt wird, bei dem es eindeutig nicht mit rechten Dingen zuging, setzt er Himmel und Hölle in Bewegung, um Kaden und seiner Familie zu helfen.

Strafverteidiger Ellery Cramer stammt aus einer reichen Familie, was ihn nicht daran hindert, sich bereits seit sechs Jahren zum straßenerfahrenen, selbstbewussten Detektiv Jackson Rivers hingezogen zu fühlen. Doch als Jackson ihn um Hilfe bei der Verteidigung von Kaden Cameron bittet, ist er bald überfordert – und das nicht nur in Bezug auf den verschlossenen, unwirschen Detektiv. Kaden wurde nicht nur ein Mord angehängt, sondern er wurde ihm von korrupten Polizisten angehängt, wobei die Verschwörung weiter reicht, als Ellery sich vorwagt – und bis in Jacksons unschöne Vergangenheit.

Bald sind beide Männer tief in das Rätsel um den in der Tankstelle ermordeten Polizisten verstrickt und befinden sich in einem Wettlauf gegen die Zeit, um Kadens Unschuld zu beweisen. Doch abseits der Ermittlungen und der fliegenden Kugeln müssen sie mit persönlichen Komplikationen umgehen … und einer gegenseitigen Anziehungskraft, die außer Kontrolle geraten ist.

L’avvocato divorzista Clayton Reynolds è un cinico felice che crede nel duro lavoro e nelle avventure di una notte. Crede anche che essere un ottimo avvocato significhi non dover mai più tornare al miserabile parcheggio per roulotte in cui è cresciuto e che fare volontariato in un rifugio per donne maltrattate serva a placare la sua coscienza che, di tanto in tanto, viene a tormentarlo. Così, quando Nadine Graham arriva con un braccio rotto e un figlio che desidera disperatamente proteggere, Clayton non può rifiutare la sua richiesta di aiuto.

Accettare il caso significa rivolgersi all’investigatore Chiamami-Kelly-e-basta. Il che non sarebbe tanto male, se Kelly non fosse un inguaribile romantico… nonché l’uomo più sexy che lui abbia mai incontrato.

Kelly ha sempre avuto una cotta per l’inarrivabile Clayton Reynolds e acconsente ad aiutarlo, anche se è già parecchio impegnato ad accudire il figlio del fratello rimasto vedovo.

Quando il caso di Nadine si fa pericoloso, i due uomini, all’apparenza agli antipodi, sono costretti a collaborare, scoprendo così di avere moltissime cose in comune… ma risolvere il caso e salvare la vita di Nadine potrebbe costare caro a Kelly.

Der Scheidungsanwalt Clayton Reynolds ist ein überzeugter Zyniker, der an harte Arbeit und One-Night-Stands glaubt. Außerdem ist er der Meinung, dass er als exzellenter Anwalt nie mehr nach Hause – in die elende Wohnwagensiedlung, in der er aufgewachsen ist – zurückkehren muss. Mit ehrenamtlicher Arbeit für ein Frauenhaus versucht er das schlechte Gewissen zu beruhigen, das ihn gelegentlich plagt. Als Nadine Graham mit einem gebrochenen Arm und einem Sohn erscheint, den sie verzweifelt beschützen will, kann Clayton ihre Bitte um Hilfe daher nicht abschlagen.

Die Annahme des Falls bedeutet jedoch auch, den Ermittlungsbeamten „nennt mich einfach nur Kelly“ um Unterstützung bitten zu müssen. Das wäre gar nicht so schlimm, wenn Kelly nicht ein hoffnungsloser Romantiker wäre und außerdem der heißeste Mann, dem Clayton je begegnet ist.

Kelly hat immer schon für den unerreichbaren Clayton Reynolds geschwärmt. Er willigt ein, zu helfen, obwohl er mit dem mutterlosen Baby, das sein verwitweter Bruder bei ihm gelassen hat, eigentlich schon genug um die Ohren hat.

Als Nadines Fall eine gefährliche Wendung nimmt und die zwei scheinbar gegensätzlichen Männer zur Zusammenarbeit gezwungen werden, entdecken sie, dass sie sehr viel gemeinsam haben. Die Lösung des Falls und die Rettung von Nadines Leben könnten Kelly jedoch alles kosten.
