We all have things in life we cannot change. Serenity is in the acceptance.
Kit Marsden is proud that she’s put her heroin use in the past. She’d really just prefer if no one made a big deal about it so she can move on with her life. After all, people hear the word “heroin,” smile politely, and run for the hills. Kit would have more success ignoring her past if her NA meetings weren’t at the library where she nearly died. Plus, she can’t stop thinking about the librarian, Thea Harris.
Thea’s desperate to protect her library and keep it a safe place for the community. She’s used to keeping her life orderly and predictable, working hard, and preparing for every possibility at work and at home. But nothing prepares her for Kit Marsden.
Will Kit and Thea be able to embrace who they are, what they want, and what they can create together, or will the library and their chance at love falter?
Until a year ago, Lola Walker always felt comfortable in life—she was unlucky in love, but solid as part of Holt Lasher’s team. But the past year has made her swear off women and shaken her faith in her ability to do her job. Getting cheated on, dumped, and almost getting your team killed will do that. But then a new threat is leveled against Holt and her family by a group of anonymous cyber criminals attempting to steal millions from unsuspecting online fantasy sports players. Lola goes undercover in L.A. to find them, intent on regaining her footing. And if she just happens to spend some time with the intriguing Dr. Quinn Golden? Well, it would be rude not to, even if she might be involved in the scheme. But when Quinn’s life is in jeopardy will Lola have to watch helplessly as someone she loves gets ripped away from her once again?
Rogue agent Zoey Blackwood is having the time of her life traveling the world and evading the CIA’s capture. Her wisecracking humor keeps things light, but her mission is no joke: save millions of innocent lives that the US considers expendable in the wake of a deadly virus. Giving away the vaccine’s top-secret formula when the government plans to sell it lands her squarely on the CIA’s most-wanted list.
CIA Agent Peyton North’s mission is simple: apprehend Zoey and return her to headquarters. Peyton gives chase, ready to do whatever it takes to catch her. But every time she thinks she has Zoey cornered, the smart-ass agent pulls off another clever escape.
Sparks ignite between them during their cat-and-mouse trek around the globe. A bond is forged and loyalties are tested as their sizzling attraction approaches a point of no return.
By Ali Vali
For Cain Casey nothing is more important than family, and having hers close—Emma, Hayden, Hannah, and the new baby—is as near as she’ll get to true happiness. But enemies who lurk in the shadows threaten more than just her business, forcing her to question whether the biggest threat comes from having it all.
As Cain continues to search for lingering adversaries like agent-turned-drug dealer Anthony Curtis, the FBI is hot on her tail and will stop at nothing to lock her away. Add the Russian mob into the mix and it might be too much to handle. It will take a transformation into the devil incarnate for Cain to keep those she loves safe and to hold on to her rightful place as the head of the family.
