A dedicated cop in the Special Victims Bureau, Ryan Mercedes has a trusted friend in lawyer-advocate Audrey Lincoln. Her compassion is the perfect counterpoint to his hard-driving fight for justice. And this good relationship only gets better the night they cross the line from friends to lovers.
But they're up against seemingly insurmountable obstacles that could divide them for good. Worse— now she and Ryan are on opposite sides of a controversial case. Can they trust enough to resolve their differences and find their way back to each other?
But her brother, Cole, thinks that's a huge gamble, and she can't disagree. At the very least, he tells her, she should go for a known quantity and ask his old friend and best poker buddy, Blake, to be the dad.
Blake's certainly a known quantity, all right.
He's Annie's first husband...
They say big-city problems don't happen here. They're wrong. That's why psychologist Kelly Chapman is so concerned about fourteen-year-old Maggie Winston. She's a straight-A student who's developed a sudden interest in an older man. A man she knows only as Mac.
Deputy Samantha Jones, Kelly's longtime friend, is worried, too. She has been ever since a local businessman killed his wife and then himself. Since a kid was caught selling drugs. Since the discovery of a mysterious chemical dump on Kyle Evans's farm. Kyle, her former fiancé and current lover…
Are all these things connected? That's what Sam and Kelly are beginning to think. And that means someone in Chandler is lying.
For one thing, a judge she's always trusted is making decisions she doesn't understand. For another, her pediatrician is being questioned in the deaths of several young patients--including Hannah's adopted son. The police say it was murder. Dr. Brian Hampton says he's been framed.
Still reeling from grief at the loss of her child, Hannah no longer knows who to believe, who's lying and who's not. Despite her faith in Brian, she begins to wonder if he's betrayed her. Is he connected with Donahue? Is he responsible for her son's death?
Neighbor Simon Green is the only person who isn't begging her to quit the case. Simon, an ex-police officer with dark secrets of his own, understands how vital it is to obliterate violence and hate. But when one word from the most unlikely source threatens to change their lives forever, Janet must decide what risks she's willing to take.
At one time, Amy Wainscoat had it all—wealth, control of her family's Chicago business, a handsome and loving husband, a child she adored. But her husband was killed in a boating accident a year ago. And now, most devastating of all, five-year-old Charles has been kidnapped, apparently by the nanny she'd recently fired.
Despite the involvement of the police and the FBI, despite the fact that she's hired one of the best private investigators around, Amy's determined to be part of the search.
There are some things only a mother can do…
When Charles and his ex-nanny are spotted in Michigan, Amy drives across the state, following every conceivable lead, following each road to its end. As she and her detective grow close, their shared quest engenders an intimacy that's more real than anything except her love for Charles.
Then, one day, the search is over. And what they find shocks Amy as nothing has ever shocked her before.
Divorce lawyer Hayley Hanna has one week to convince her bosses she's not a "ruthless, man-hating shark." And it's not going to be easy. In a moment of insanity, Hayley agrees to bring her fiancé to the corporate retreat in Maui. But there's one problem: she hasn't got a fiancé.
Enter Chase Hartley—six feet of sexy, sculpted police muscle. Chase needs a date for his sister's island wedding—someone to stop the family matchmakers. The chemistry between Hayley and Chase is just a bonus—one that quickly turns hot nights into sizzling sexcapades. All they have to do is resist believing their own lie. But just because their relationship is fake doesn't mean that falling for each other won't have real consequences!
With her business sold and her family out of reach, Abby Hayden's at loose ends.
But if Abby doesn't have enough to occupy her time, Dr. Nick McIntrye has too much. So many people rely on him for help and guidance…. No wonder Abby calls him "St. Nick."
Nick has a proposition for Abby, one he thinks will benefit them both. He persuades her to work at a home he's established for pregnant teens, girls who'll be giving up their babies for adoption.
That's where Abby learns she has a special gift: she knows how to make these girls feel loved and valued, despite their mistakes, despite their fears and lost confidence. And she receives a special gift herself—her very own St. Nick. Not just this Christmas, but for all the Christmases to come!

And will he ever forgive her if she doesn't choose him?
