Christmas Stalking: A Mindhunters Holiday Novella

Anne Marie Becker
Free sample

Chicago prosecuting attorney Gwendolyn Pierce prides herself in being a strong, independent woman. Ignoring the frivolity of the holiday season and working through Christmas might come across as Scrooge-ish to others, but building her career is her focus. Besides, being miserly with her time and attention protects her from getting too close to people and then experiencing the pain of losing them. Her dedication to prosecuting criminals helps her cope with the injustice in the world that took her sister from her.


Defense attorney Matthew Haney looks forward to enjoying all of the usual holiday traditions with his parents and siblings but his thoughts continually stray to a certain sexy woman who is probably spending Christmas alone. Gwen is all work and no play—except for that week they spent together. Their passion ran deep and now she’s under his skin and in his head, even though she’s determined not to let him distract her. 


When a stalker wants Matt for her own and sees Gwen as an obstacle to dispose of, they begin receiving pretty little packages with not-so-pretty presents inside. Confronted by painful ghosts of her past, present, and future, Gwen must decide whether to open her heart and let the man of her dreams in. If Matt can convince the woman he loves he’s worth the risk, they’ll receive the greatest Christmas gift of all—love.  

The Mindhunters series continues in this 33,000-word romantic suspense Christmas novella…

The Mindhunters, Book Six


It’s not whether you win or lose, it’s whether you make it out alive.


Abby Rhodes learned early on that her gift could do more harm than good, so she stifled her psychic abilities for years. But in an unguarded moment, she touches an object connected to the murders of eleven girls and receives a message—one that could help capture a killer. When a twelfth victim goes missing, she must choose whether to trust her gift and risk everything, or stay silent and possibly jeopardize a young girl’s life.


Tech genius and ex-SEAL Andrew “Einstein” MacKenzie doubts the sexy yoga instructor with the soft smile can help find a killer who has eluded authorities for decades, but he’ll do anything to catch a break in this case—until he learns Abby’s methods have no basis in science. He prefers verified data and reliable statistics that fit neatly into his crime-solving algorithms. This woman, both his polar opposite and his perfect match, threatens to upend his carefully controlled world in every way.


Twenty years ago, the Charmer began his deadly game, killing beautiful young women to serve his needs. Now, the agents at SSAM are breathing down his neck. Determined to stay in control, he initiates a plan to destroy the agency—unless they find him first. It’s a race against the clock as Einstein and Abby hunt the ruthless serial killer, and the winner will take all.

"Reading Hideaway is like a mini vacation, as Roberts transports you from the sun-drenched mountains of Big Sur to the rolling hills of Ireland to the bustling streets of New York City." - Associated Press

A family ranch in Big Sur country and a legacy of Hollywood royalty set the stage for Nora Roberts’ emotional new suspense novel, Hideaway.

Caitlyn Sullivan had come from a long line of Hollywood royalty, stretching back to her Irish immigrant great-grandfather. At nine, she was already a star—yet still an innocent child who loved to play hide and seek with her cousins at the family home in Big Sur. It was during one of those games that she disappeared.

Some may have considered her a pampered princess, but Cate was in fact a smart, scrappy fighter, and she managed to escape her abductors. Dillon Cooper was shocked to find the bloodied, exhausted girl huddled in his house—but when the teenager and his family heard her story they provided refuge, reuniting her with her loved ones.

Cate’s ordeal, though, was far from over. First came the discovery of a shocking betrayal that would send someone she’d trusted to prison. Then there were years spent away in western Ireland, peaceful and protected but with restlessness growing in her soul.

Finally, she would return to Los Angeles, gathering the courage to act again and get past the trauma that had derailed her life. What she didn’t yet know was that two seeds had been planted that long-ago night—one of a great love, and one of a terrible vengeance...
