Book 2 of The Devane Files finds our intrepid inspector ready to settle down with his new wife. But problems seem to find their way to his front door. Now, Devane finds himself once again caught up in a mystery that could not only cost him the love of the woman who holds his heart, but his life as well.

The riveting sequel to Out Of Hell...

Almost a year has passed since the murder of Robert Bradshaw, and Inspector Michael Devane has married Bradshaw's lovely widow, Bethany Anne. Life has become a thing to be enjoyed again, and the past is slowly being put to rest. But less than a day after they return to London from their honeymoon, Bethany's closest friend, Daphne Ashton, arrives with a problem that will require Devane's special brand of insight and investigation—as well as his return to the case that never quite rests, that of the elusive killer known as Jack The Ripper.

Once again on the streets of Whitechapel and Spitalfields, Devane's dreams are haunted by blood, violence, and a growing certainty that he is being drawn deeper into a mystery that is, perhaps, best left unsolved. Recently free of an opium addiction, the pressures mount, leaving Devane to wonder if he has known all along who the Whitechapel murderer is, and chose to seek refuge in drug-induced ignorance rather than accept a truth that could destroy much more than his new life if it became known...

About the author

Denysé is a native of Atlantic Canada, she began writing at an early age and can’t recall a time when she wasn’t creating in some artistic form. Cowboys have been a love-affair that began at the tender age of three, and eventually expanded to encompass an equally timeless passion for pirates, Greek Gods, and Ancient Egypt. The other side of the Old West intrigue is an affinity for Victorian England, particularly the 1885-1895 part of the century.

 DARK, DANGEROUS, EMOTIONAL HISTORICAL ROMANCE

Join dashing heroes, scandalous scoundrels, and rebellious women in USA Today Bestselling Author Erica Monroe's suspenseful historical romance series: Covert Heiresses and The Rookery Rogues.

Meet the COVERT HEIRESSES: women who by day are the talk of the ton, and by night England's top spies.

I SPY A DUKE

SHE WANTS REVENGE

When bluestocking Vivian Loren becomes the governess for the wealthy Spencer family, she's hunting for clues about the murder of her brother, not romance. But Vivian didn't count on one thing: James Spencer, the infuriatingly handsome Duke of Abermont.

HE NEEDS A WIFE

As head of Britain's elite intelligence agency, James has no time to find and woo a wife. After discovering Vivian's quest for answers has made her a pawn in a treacherous plot of one of Napoleon's most deadly spies, James realizes they can help each other. She'll become his duchess, and he'll keep her safe. What begins as a marriage of convenience quickly becomes anything but as secrets surface. Love may be the most dangerous mission of all.


THE ROOKERY ROGUES features thieves, Metropolitan Police Officers, and hellions in the gritty London underworld.

 A DANGEROUS INVITATION

SHE'S GIVEN UP ON LOVE, AND WANTS ONLY INDEPENDENCE...

Torn from her life of privilege by her father's death, Kate Morgan survives in London's dark and depraved rookeries as a fence for stolen goods. The last man she ever expects, or wants, to be reunited with is her first love, who promised to cherish, honor and protect her, and instead fled amidst accusations of murder.

HE'S THE REFORMED RAKE DETERMINED TO WIN HER BACK.

One drunken night cost Daniel O'Reilly the woman he loved. If he ever wants to reclaim Kate--and his old life--he'll not only have to prove he's innocent of murder, but convince the pistol-wielding spitfire that he's no longer the scoundrel he once was.

Together, they'll have to face a killer. Time is running out...

 Author’s Note: The stories in the Regency Unlaced, Alpha, and Knight Security series have stronger sexual content and language than my other books.
Lady Rachel Shaw had believed her unhappiness to be at an end once her husband died, but now she finds herself caught in the clutches of a cruel and relentless blackmailer. Totally at a loss as to who she can turn to for help, her friend the Countess of Winterbourne, advises Rachel to go to Lucien Brooke, Viscount Brooketon, a gentleman who was recently of assistance to Fliss and her husband.

Rachel doesn’t know Lucien Brooke personally, but she has seen him many times at one Society event or another, and knows him to be an aristocratic and handsome gentleman who has avoided every attempt by the beauties of the ton to be lured into matrimony. Gossip and reputation say the viscount as being a cold and arrogant gentleman who does not suffer fools gladly. And Rachel has been very foolish indeed.

Left with no other choice, Rachel finally decides to risk the viscount’s scorn and ask for his help.

Lucien Brooke, Viscount Brooketon cannot deny Lady Rachel Shaw’s beauty or desirability, but unfortunately she is also as flighty and flirtatious as his mother, a woman who has been embroiled in one scandal after another for most of his life. That being the case, Rachel Shaw is the type of woman whom Lucien has always avoided having any personal involvement.

Looks can be deceiving, however, and within minutes of Rachel calling at his home and explaining her current predicament, Lucien realizes he was wrong to have judged the lady without really knowing her, or her circumstances.

He now not only wants to help Rachel in her current predicament but he also wants her. In his arms. In his bed.

Persuading Rachel into accept any of those things from him is going to be a battle Lucien has every intention of winning.

An unhappy marriage, to an adulterous wife, has left widower Mr. Ranulf Montgomery immune to the wiles of women. He certainly has no time, or sympathy, when the young and beautiful Miss Darcy Ambridge, is found hiding in his carriage, as he makes the long journey from London back to his home in Scotland.

Darcy Ambridge acts out of desperation when she decides to throw herself on the mercy of Ranulf Montgomery. Convincing that hard and cynical gentleman of her dire circumstances seems impossible, however. Can Darcy break through the hard shell that now surrounds Ranulf’s emotions, and find the warm gentleman she once found so intriguing? Or will Ranulf simply abandon her to the attentions of the lecherous gentleman determined to bed her?

As desire rages out of control between the two of them, Ranulf dearly wishes to rid himself of Darcy’s company. Something he knows he cannot do, in all conscience, until he finds the culprit of the series of ‘accidents’ now threatening to injure or kill both of them.

Who could possibly want to see one or both of them dead? The unscrupulous gentleman Darcy is running away from? Or perhaps someone from Ranulf’s past, set on revenge?

Author’s Note: The stories in the Regency Unlaced, Knight Security, and Alpha Series, have stronger sexual content and language than my other books.

 "You can't be serious?"
"Amerasha needs stability," King Alenzo Coranthaos reminded his only son. "Our future lies with you!"

Michel Alexandros Coranthaos, heir to the island nation of Coranthis, turned from the castle window to look intently at his father. He tried to keep his voice even and free of the irritation that was coursing through his veins like a living thing. "Father, you are in the prime of your years, hardly on the verge of dying of old age. I fail to see why you think it so necessary for me to marry and produce offspring!"

His father's shoulders stiffened at the words and Michel sighed inwardly. He schooled his expression to careful neutrality and waited for the rebuke he sensed was coming to him.

"Why do you think it so necessary to remain unmarried, Michel?"

Startled by the calm question, he took a few moments to seriously consider the question. He could be flippant about it, or he could for a change be honest. The expectancy in his father's eyes decided him and he crossed the distance between them.

"I don't think it's unnecessary, father. I simply choose to wait for a woman I can love and respect, someone I can share my life with, as you did with mother."

Alenzo looked at his son, and nodded, expression grave.

"I wish to see you happy, Michel." He held up a hand to ward off the reply Michel was about to make and smiled, albeit with sadness. "You have played the carefree prince for many years, but there is an emptiness in your life that needs to be filled. Tell me this is not truth? If you can?"

Michel stared, genuinely surprised by the turn of the conversation. He'd answered his father's summons with the expectation of another of their increasingly frequent arguments. Instead, he was being accorded a direct honesty that had once been the core of their relationship, but had often been lacking in years. He sat down and for a few moments he remained silent, then he leaned back in the comfortable chair and nodded.

"There is no sense denying what you say, father. I am not a happy man," he admitted, then laughed with real bitterness. "I don't lack for attention, but it feels very hollow."

Alenzo nodded. "It's time to bring a bride to you, my son."

Michel frowned, and waited for the trap to spring. He should have recognized the change in tactics, his father was a supreme manipulator.
I have debts to pay and secrets to keep. When someone threatens my life, I crash into him: Jackson Ludlow

The recluse billionaire of New York

Once, he had everything a man could want. Then, he lost the only thing that he ever loved.


So, he spent four years holed up in his mansion doing the only thing he knew how to do: make money. 


We are all wrong for each other. He’s cold, uninterested and demanding. 

I’m impatient and inexperienced. 


The only thing we have in common is that we both have secrets. 

And the closer we get, the more they threaten to destroy us.
