The Last Stand Collection by Brenda Novak, Volume 2

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

The Perfect Couple

One afternoon in May, Zoe Duncan’s thirteen-year-old daughter goes missing from her own backyard. Zoe’s willing to do anything to bring Sam home, even if it means divulging all her secrets to a private investigator.

Jonathan Stivers is good at what he does, the best. But never has the P.I. had fewer leads to work with–or been more attracted to a client. Jonathan’s sure of only one thing: Sam was taken by someone close to the family. He doesn’t know how close until he realizes that the “perfect” couple next door is anything but….

The Perfect Liar

Air Force Captain Luke Trussell is shocked when the police charge him with rape. He knows he made a mistake in judgment the night before, but he certainly didn’t force his attentions on the woman who’s been stalking him for months.

Problem is Kalyna Harter has the bruises, and the DNA evidence, to make her claim convincing.

Kalyna goes to victims’ rights advocate Ava Bixby, but Ava soon realizes she’s defending the wrong victim.

Problem is switching her support to Luke could be dangerous, especially when she falls for him. Because Kalyna won’t tolerate losing the man she wants to anyone. Least of all Ava.

The Perfect Murder

For more than a year, Sebastian Costas has been trying to unravel the truth behind the murder of his ex-wife and son. Despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary, he’s convinced that her second husband–a cop–committed both murders, then faked his own death. Now Sebastian has followed the slimmest of leads to Sacramento…and that’s where he finally gets the break he needs. Investigator Jane Burke calls him in connection with a separate crime–a crime that could lead him straight to the man he’s been looking for.
Three classic stories of romantic suspense from New York Times bestselling author Brenda Novak…

Trust Me

Four years ago, Skye Kellerman was attacked in her own bed. She managed to fend off her knife-wielding assailant, but the trauma changed everything about her life. But now, her would-be rapist is getting out of prison. Sacramento detective David Willis, who investigated her case, believes Burke is a clear and present danger--and now he’s is free to terrorize Skye again. Unless David can stop him. Unless Skye can fight back. Because Oliver Burke has every intention of finishing what he started…

Stop Me


Romain Fornier lost his reason for living when his daughter was kidnapped and murdered. He used a cop’s gun to mete out his own justice and spent the next few years in prison. After being freed, he learns that he might have killed the wrong man. Jasmine Stratford, a psychological profiler, is convinced the same killer kidnapped her sister sixteen years ago. She approaches Romain because she knows he can help her. But searching for the man who irrevocably changed both their lives means they have to rise to a killer’s challenge…

Watch Me

Teenagers Sheridan Kohl and Jason Wyatt were parked at the lake in Whiterock, Tennessee, when a stranger wearing a ski mask shot them both. Sheridan lived but Jason died—and the stranger was never caught. When Sheridan’s attacked a second time, it’s only because of Jason’s stepbrother, Cain Granger, that she survives. Cain knows that whoever killed his brother probably isn’t a stranger at all. But figuring out that person’s identity is easier said than done—especially since the killer seems to be taunting them both…
 Hell hath no fury…

 

Chinese-born Australian lawyer, Sally-Ann Li spent her childhood defending herself from false accusations based largely upon her race. Now an adult with a successful career in the highly reputable Sydney Legal law firm, she’s relieved to have put the trauma of her youth behind her.

 

Detective Constable James Shepherd loves his job and he’s good at it. He prides himself on playing fair, but he also likes to win. He has an enviable success record among the members of the City of Sydney homicide team and he wants to keep it that way. When a man is discovered brutally murdered in a dark city alley, James relishes the challenge of finding the person responsible and taking another bad guy off the streets.

 

Sally-Ann is shocked and aghast to discover her ex-brother-in-law has been murdered. She’s even more shocked when she realizes she is one of the prime suspects. When the good-looking detective questions her about the murder, she’s at once thrown back to the nightmare of her childhood. Underneath her veneer of confidence still lies the scared little girl who was repeatedly forced to bear the brunt of unjust accusations and the detective’s visit brings all of her insecurities to the fore.

 

Despite this, she finds herself inexplicably drawn to the handsome detective and can’t help but wish they’d met in different circumstances, but the truth is, he’s determined to put her away for murder and she’s just as determined to prove her innocence…

 

 

 USA Today bestselling author Chris Taylor doesn’t disappoint with her latest book.

 Jessica Wolfe’s career as a lawyer at the prestigious Sydney Legal was going from strength to strength until her brother, Alistair Wolfe, decided to get involved in illegal human tissue trafficking. Alistair’s subsequent arrest and conviction brought with it a mountain of negative publicity and has damaged Jessica’s prospects of a partnership at the law firm. Despite her brother’s criminality, Jessica is determined to prove her worth by working harder than any other lawyer.

 Then she receives a phone call from an old high school flame that will change her life forever…

 Mackenzie Callaway is a successful property developer. A former high school football jock, he’s defied everyone’s expectations by scraping his way through college and graduating with a business degree. Sheer hard work, a whole lot of charm and a fair amount of luck has enabled him to accumulate wealth like he’d never dreamed possible. Then his ex-girlfriend’s body is found in a suitcase hidden inside the air conditioning vent in one of his buildings and all hell break’s loose.

 The police think they have enough circumstantial evidence to charge Mackenzie with her murder and his perfect life begins to spiral out of control. His only hope is the girl he’s known since high school who just happens to be a damned fine criminal defense lawyer.

 

Can Jessica and Mackenzie ignore the spark of attraction between them in order to save Mackenzie from being convicted of a crime he didn’t commit…?
