Teenage heiress Kaya experiences her first taste of freedom when she’s kidnapped from her sheltered life. But as she forms an unlikely connection with her abductor, Luke, her adventure takes a strange turn. Now, as her father’s men and her devoted bodyguard scour the woods to find her, she wonders if staying in the arms of her abductor is the safer place to be. At least, that’s what her heart is sayingher head is saying run


There is nothing magical about growing up in a mountainside castle, when it’s your prison. Kaya’s ruthless and powerful father keeps her under lock and key, watched every second of the day—and Kaya’s not really sure why. She’s just a normal girl…no one special. She doesn’t understand her father’s obsession with her safety—until she is kidnapped. 


Dragged through a brutal wilderness, Kaya’s captor shows her the devastating truth, and even though he has dark secrets of his own, she is inexplicably drawn to him—when the stars are in your eyes, sometimes the line between right and wrong gets blurred. Passion obliterates common sense. Love... makes you reckless. 


Dangerously passionate and darkly romantic, SERENADE is the first novel in a page-turning thriller and seductive romance series.

I am a survivor. A warrior facing battle. 
I will protect those I love with my life...
and take back what’s mine. 


Kaya has minutes to save the man she loves. Minutes. 

Luke’s life is hanging by a thread, and Kaya has to do the unthinkable—go back to her father. It’s a worthy way to die, giving your life for the one you love.  But not everyone feels that way—Thomas in particular. Realizing he wants more than just friendship, he wedges himself between Kaya and her sacrifice. He’ll do whatever it takes to keep her with him, even if it means stealing her precious minutes.     


But there’s more at stake than just her life. 

The truth behind Henry’s genetic research is shocking, and Kaya must stop him before he can release a weapon of mass destruction upon the world. But how do you stop a man with unlimited resources? Caught between dying to save the one she loves—or living to save millions—Kaya’s heartbeat is her only bargaining power. 

Time is ticking...

A spine-tingling thrill ride of unearthed secrets and true-love’s capacity, Rhapsody is the final installment of the compelling Nightmusic Trilogy.

IN THIS TEEN SPY THRILLER, JOCELYN STEELY IS AMERICA'S LAST SHOT TO BEAT THE NORTH KOREANS

When Jocelyn Steely was kidnapped by a North Korean spy agency, she was only a little girl. Young. Scared. Powerless. And completely moldable.

Now, ten years later, she’s a ruthless assassin. Yet her target isn't who you might think. Jocelyn is determined to escape her kidnappers and take down North Korea and their spy agency forever.

But when she makes it to U.S. soil, she finds that not everyone believes her story. Will she be able to get the Americans to trust her? Or will the North Koreans discover her deception before she has a chance?

In this life-or-death action-packed spy thriller, Meghan Rogers creates a teen girl character whose toughness, intelligence and determination rival Jason Bourne, Sydney Bristow and James Bond.

The first novel in the Raven Files series will leave you breathless.


Praise for Crossing the Line:

"Jocelyn makes for a kick-ass, determined heroine, and there’s no shortage of scenes of adrenaline-charged adventure...[A] strong debut for both the author and the Raven Files series."--Publishers Weekly

"There’s a plot twist, revealed secret, or chase scene in every chapter—Rogers knows how to keep the pages turning....The cliff-hanger ending begs for a swift sequel."--Booklist

"For fans of TV’s Alias, this is the beginning of an excellent new espionage series."--School Library Journal

"Action lovers will enjoy the movie-worthy close-combat scenes, tension-building rescues, and narrow escapes, while those who like their spy stories with psychological heft will appreciate the careful portrait of Jocelyn as a trauma survivor....Perfect for readers who grew up with Carter’s Gallagher Girls series and are ready for the next level."--BCCB
YOU HAVE FOUR DAYS TO LOCATE FIVE TREASURED TROPHIES. BREAK THE RULES AND YOU ALL DIE. HAPPY HUNTING!

Back in September, the town of Bakersville, Ohio made national news when a video went viral featuring thirteen of the high school’s elite in compromising positions. Now it’s May, and every month since the “Bakersville Dozen” made their infamous appearance on the national stage, one girl has gone missing. Officials are no closer to identifying the criminal.

Bailey, “Like a Virgin” Holzman is getting really fed up with the scrutiny. She just wants to enjoy the rest of her senior year, and have an epic summer before heading off to college. So when she discovers a note in her locker on the last day of school inviting her on a scavenger hunt, she thinks it’s just a sweet surprise from her boyfriend trying to cheer her up.

But following the clue leads her, instead, to the first official casualty. And another sinister envelope. The killer is close, and it could be anyone. Even the people Bailey’s always trusted most—her best friend, her perfect boyfriend, or the boy-next door she’s always pined for.

With the clock ticking, she faces a terrifying choice: play the game by the killer’s rules—follow the clues, tell no one, and no cops—for a chance to save the rest of the missing girls, or risk becoming the next grisly victim.

The latest heart-pounding thriller from Kristina McBride blends elements of Gone Girl, Pretty Little Liars, and Stephen King into a story that will leave you guessing until the final pages.
