Tessie King has just inherited the biggest casino in South Lake Tahoe, Nevada: the Royal Lakeside. What she didn't bargain for are the problems she'd inherit with it.

Having left Tahoe years ago, the underbelly of the casino trade is a far cry from the art world Tessie is used to. High-stakes cons, inside jobs, wise guys... Tessie quickly realizes she's in way over her head. And things go from bad to worse when questions start to arise about the nature of her father's death. Enter FBI agent Devin Ryder, member of the Nevada Organized Crime Task Force. He's had his eye on the Royal Palace for months, and with the suspicious death of its leader, Ryder now has Tessie squarely in his sights. If Tessie doesn't want to be running her casino from behind bars, she needs to find out how her father really died, who's behind it, why, and how to get them into Agent Ryder's hot little hands before he gets his hands on her. All the while catching a con-man, beating the competition, and running a multi-million dollar business.

Tough job? Fo'get about it. All in a day's work for this lady luck.

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author, Gemma Halliday...

When Tessie King inherited the Royal Palace Hotel, Lake Tahoe's biggest resort, she inherited a cranky board of directors along with it. A board that is demanding higher revenues, or Tessie's out. Faced with the possibility of losing her father’s legacy, Tessie turns to her staff to help her come up with a plan: film the season finale of Battle Buffet, the hottest cooking competition show on TV, at the resort. It's a scheme sure to bring in the big bucks.

But is also brings big trouble. When one of the casino’s wealthiest clients is found dead on the gaming floor, and the killer comes up incognito on the security footage, everyone is a suspect—from the television crew to the blue haired retirees at the slots. Tessie teams up with her stepmother-turned-BFF and her snowboarding teenage crush in a race against the clock to repair the casino's reputation, dodge mob accusations from the hot FBI agent on the case, and track down a killer before any more of her big spenders end up sleeping with the fishes.

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author, Jana DeLeon, the fourth book in the Ghost-in-Law series, RESURRECTION IN MUDBUG, aka The Return of Helena Henry!

Just when you thought it was safe to go back into the bayou…

Jadyn St. James is excited to start her job as game warden in Mudbug, Louisiana, and hopes it is the beginning of a new and improved life. She expected to run across any number of odd occurrences in the small bayou town, but she never thought her life would be in danger within a matter of days. And that’s not even the worst thing.

Helena Henry was hell on wheels—both alive and dead—when she resided in Mudbug, and a year in heaven hasn’t improved her one bit. Now, she’s back and has brought trouble with her.

When it becomes apparent that a major crime is occurring in Mudbug, Colt Bertrand is more than frustrated to be saddled with an inexperienced game warden, especially one who looks like Jadyn. But it soon becomes apparent that they need to put their differences aside if they expect to solve the crime, and more importantly, stay alive. 

Resurrection in Mudbug is a humorous mystery and contemporary romance set in the bayous of southern Louisiana. It is the fourth book in the New York Times bestselling Ghost-in-Law series. Resurrection in Mudbug has a cozy mystery feel and features a strong heroine, a sexy hero, and a ghost unlike any you’ve ever heard of. It appeals to fans of light paranormal, paranormal romance, cozy mysteries, women sleuth, and also to fans of the Stephanie Plum series by Janet Evanovich.

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Gemma Halliday, whose books have been downloaded over a million times, comes a novel with the physiological thrill of Gone Girl and the suspenseful twists of Big Little Lies...


She faked her death to escape life in a war torn country. But now her enemies have tracked her down, and this time they want her to stay dead.


Anya Danielovich lives with the guilt of what she had to do to survive when her native country divided against itself. But that was a long time ago. Today she’s become Anna Smith, a single, thirtysomething woman living in San Francisco with a simple desire to lead a better life. Even if she is still haunted by her past—the enemies she made, the mentor she betrayed, the woman she was. She’s taken care to cover her tracks over the years, but she’s beginning to feel like she’s being watched…


Nick Dade is a hired gunman, the best of the best. He’s read Anya’s file, knows the unspeakable acts she committed, and after weeks of surveillance, he’s ready to pull the trigger on his latest target. That is until someone else beats him to the punch. With his agenda shattered, Dade is suddenly thrown together with the woman he’s been sent to eliminate. Who is she really? Who hired the second hit? And who can he trust?

From New York Times and USA Today Bestselling author Gemma Halliday...

Allie Quick has high aspirations - much higher than reporting on the latest celebrity gossip for the L.A. Informer, Hollywood's most notorious tabloid. But if she's going to join the ranks of the real reporters, she's going to need a headline worthy story under her belt. Which is just what she gets when the producer of the trashiest reality shows on TV winds up murdered, and Allie convinces her editor, Felix Dunn (from the High Heels Mysteries), that this story has her name written all over it. Between an aging dance-off judge, a family with sextuplets and triplets, and the star of a little person dating show, Allie has no shortage of reality stars to question. But when she finds herself falling for her prime suspect, Allie's relationship with her editor is suddenly on the rocks, and her life is in danger. This is one deadline Allie can't afford to miss!
