He lost her once. He won't lose her again.

Despite an illustrious career as a top hostage negotiator, Joe Matarazzo is haunted by the past. It was a year ago that three innocent lives were lost under his watch. But Joe isn't the only one who remembers that day. When Joe's exes begin to fall victim to a violent stalker, Joe seeks the help of Laura Birchwood—a lawyer and the woman he once loved. Despite old wounds, Laura agrees to help Joe find out who's framing him. And while they expect to be met with danger, they're unprepared for passion that still burns strong, and their determination to give what was between them a second chance.

Our man Giorgio is returning to one of the trade offices via Cannes for plenty of social relaxation after several months in the field. Instead of enjoying the pleasures of rest, Giorgio is sent a sealed message: ‘Return via Athens with immediate effect’. Giorgio teams up with his old friend Emilio to find some secret financial files which have recently been stolen – who took them, and why? The girls in D section who source Giorgio’s messages and keep his secrets are looking forward to his return and looking forward to him livening the place up. Also anticipating Giorgio’s return is a bodyguard who has certain feelings for him, even though he hid her exotic glittery shoes. And the other woman, whose side is she really on? Did she really want Giorgio? All are involved, for good or bad. The secret financial files will open a door to a world of money, and the people that Giorgio and Emilio are tracing all have their own reasons for stealing the files. All characters are caught in the midst of the struggles between love and trust, loss and grief, and the grand lifestyle that they all aspire to. In this lifestyle is a world of power and intrigue, and the invisible wealth of others. A secret, shadowy environment filled with cars, yachts and executive jets. There are some who live even deeper within this lifestyle. In an undefined tenebrous existence in the world of finance, there is always a price to pay, but who will pay this time? In this life of shadows, will they survive, with or without visible scars?
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.
A NEW YORK TIMES 100 NOTABLE BOOKS OF 2019 SELECTION

From #1 New York Times bestselling author Stephen King, the most riveting and unforgettable story of kids confronting evil since It.

In the middle of the night, in a house on a quiet street in suburban Minneapolis, intruders silently murder Luke Ellis’s parents and load him into a black SUV. The operation takes less than two minutes. Luke will wake up at The Institute, in a room that looks just like his own, except there’s no window. And outside his door are other doors, behind which are other kids with special talents—telekinesis and telepathy—who got to this place the same way Luke did: Kalisha, Nick, George, Iris, and ten-year-old Avery Dixon. They are all in Front Half. Others, Luke learns, graduated to Back Half, “like the roach motel,” Kalisha says. “You check in, but you don’t check out.”

In this most sinister of institutions, the director, Mrs. Sigsby, and her staff are ruthlessly dedicated to extracting from these children the force of their extranormal gifts. There are no scruples here. If you go along, you get tokens for the vending machines. If you don’t, punishment is brutal. As each new victim disappears to Back Half, Luke becomes more and more desperate to get out and get help. But no one has ever escaped from the Institute.

As psychically terrifying as Firestarter, and with the spectacular kid power of It, The Institute is Stephen King’s gut-wrenchingly dramatic story of good vs. evil in a world where the good guys don’t always win.
