Avoiding him should be easy with her strict dating rules.


Mind reader and Psychic Guild lawyer, Marisa Meadows, adheres to her Guild Girl Code by not dating Guardians. But she’s drawn to Guild Guardian Ric McAllister’s handsome charm... especially when their psychic minds dangerously connect. It’s not easy to keep Ric at arm’s length when she needs his help to eliminate the evil tormenting her.


One madman. One Guardian. And the fight for the woman who tempts them both.


After Ric has a deadly clairvoyant vision of Marisa burning down a house, he's determined to prove her innocence. Yet his visions are seldom wrong, and as the clues pile up, Marisa’s guilt escalates. Every moment in her presence is pure temptation, and Ric fears it won’t be long before he surrenders to her darkness. Soon it’s hard to tell whether their greatest threat is from the darkness seducing them, a sinister mastermind playing games, or the passion leading them toward destruction.

About the author

After lamenting the lack of young adult books to read, award-winning and USA Today best-selling author, Erin Richards, wrote her first novel at the age of eighteen hoping to shift the tide. But the only tide she shifted was moving from high school to college. Then everyday life took its toll on her writerly dreams until she couldn’t ignore the writing bug any longer. By then, she had immersed herself in reading adult fantasy and romance novels. Writing suspenseful paranormal and fantasy romance was a no brainer and she went on to publish two adult romance novels and hasn’t stopped since. But her muse wanted to give that YA writing gig another chance, and Erin finally realized her lifelong dream of publishing a YA novel with the debut of Vigilante Nights.


Erin lives in California. In her spare time, she enjoys reading (of course!) and re-landscaping her backyard, even though she hates digging holes…unless she’s burying fictional bodies! She also confesses to a fascination with American muscle cars…and reality TV shows!

Lieutenant Eve Dallas returns in Dark in Death, by J.D. Robb, the #1 New York Times bestselling master of suspense, and takes on a case of death imitating art...

It was a stab in the dark.

On a chilly February night, during a screening of Psycho in midtown, someone sunk an ice pick into the back of Chanel Rylan’s neck, then disappeared quietly into the crowds of drunks and tourists in Times Square. To Chanel’s best friend, who had just slipped out of the theater for a moment to take a call, it felt as unreal as the ancient black-and-white movie up on the screen. But Chanel’s blood ran red, and her death was anything but fictional.

Then, as Eve Dallas puzzles over a homicide that seems carefully planned and yet oddly personal, she receives a tip from an unexpected source: an author of police thrillers who recognizes the crime—from the pages of her own book. Dallas doesn’t think it’s coincidence, since a recent strangulation of a sex worker resembles a scene from her writing as well. Cops look for patterns of behavior: similar weapons, similar MOs. But this killer seems to find inspiration in someone else’s imagination, and if the theory holds, this may be only the second of a long-running series.

The good news is that Eve and her billionaire husband Roarke have an excuse to curl up in front of the fireplace with their cat, Galahad, reading mystery stories for research. The bad news is that time is running out before the next victim plays an unwitting role in a murderer’s deranged private drama—and only Eve can put a stop to a creative impulse gone horribly, destructively wrong.

From the author of Echoes in Death, this is the latest of the edgy, phenomenally popular police procedurals that Publishers Weekly calls “inventive, entertaining, and clever.”
