About the author

New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author Brenda Novak has penned over 45 novels. A two-time Rita nominee, she's won The National Reader's Choice, The Bookseller's Best, The Bookbuyer's Best and many other awards. She runs an annual online auction for diabetes research every May at www.brendanovak.com. To date, she’s raised over $2 million. Brenda considers herself lucky to be a mother of five and married to the love of her life.

Melinda grew up on an isolated sheep ranch, where mountain lions had been seen and yet she roamed unaccompanied. Being a rather optimistic, clueless of danger, sort she took to playing "what if" games that led her to become an author.  She spends days trying to figure out new ways to say "He made her heart pound."  That might sound boring, but the challenge keeps her mentall ahead of her 3 kids and college sweetheart husband.

Anna Adams wrote her first romance in wet sand. The Atlantic Ocean washed it away, but Anna kept going. Her stories are of love, like the proverbial stone in a lake, making ripples that spread and contract and involve.  From Iceland to Hawaii, and points in between, Anna and her own hero share with children and family and friends who’ve become family.  All this living and loving gives Anna plenty of fodder for stories of love set in real life. Come along and live them with her!

Three classic stories of romantic suspense from New York Times bestselling author Brenda Novak…

White Heat

Nate Ferrentino, who works for private security contractor Department 6, has been assigned to infiltrate a dangerous cult that has recently taken over the desert ghost town of Paradise, Arizona. It’s a challenge he welcomes—until he learns that colleague Rachel Jessop will be going undercover with him. Thanks to their shared history, he’d much rather go alone….

The problem is, only married couples can participate in cult rituals. So Rachel and Nate must pretend to be husband and wife. There’s no choice. Because people are disappearing…and if they don’t stop the cult, Rachel might be one of them.

Body Heat

Twelve people have been shot at point-blank range and left to rot in the desert sun. It’s Bordertown, Arizona’s new chief of police Sophia St. Claire’s job to do something about it. Help arrives in the form of Department 6 hired gun Roderick Guerrero. As far as Sophia’s concerned, his involvement only makes things worse. He has a history he can’t get past. A history that includes her.

Rod refuses to leave town until the killer is caught. He’s not worried about the danger posed by some vigilante. It’s Sophia who threatens him. Because he’s used to risking his life—but his heart is another story.

Killer Heat

The bodies of seven women have been discovered in Skull Valley, Arizona. Jonah Young, a private security operative from Department 6, has been hired to assist in solving these murders. But Jonah’s not prepared for the complications that arise when he’s forced to work with a woman from his past, private investigator Francesca Moretti.

Jonah betrayed Francesca ten years ago. She hasn’t forgiven him and she’s pretty sure she never will. But she has to work with him, because if they bet on the wrong suspect, it might be the last thing they ever do….
