From National Bestselling author, Leslie Langtry...

 

Dakota Bombay prided himself on his Bond-like image—bad-guy killer by day, lady-killer by night. But his life gets both shaken and stirred by an irate grandmother demanding a marketing plan for the family assassination business, a precocious six-year-old son he never knew he had, and a mysterious redheaded funeral director who's got him intrigued in more ways than one.

Suddenly the perennial playboy is knee deep in pie charts and play-dates, while juggling the demands of the not-so-family-friendly family business.  Throw in a team of rival assassins, and Dak's dreams of living trigger-happily ever after just may be put on ice.

Missi Bombay invents things—fatal flowers, Jell-O bullets, stroke-inducing panty hose and other ways to kill a target without leaving any trace behind. Living a solitary life on her family's island, she's a great asset to her family of assassins. Unfortunately, the family that kills together also meddles together, and when Missi's mom decides her daughter's life is a little too solitary, she packs Missi off the Costa Rica for an undercover assignment on a low-budget Survival reality TV show.  Amidst the ridiculous challenges, tribal voting, and late-night sneaking to the nearby resort, Missi finds herself not only scoping out her family's latest target, but also Lex Danby, the hottest contestant on the island. But Missi's hormones get put on the back burner when someone starts sabotaging the show…and Missi is squarely in the sights of the deadly culprit.

YOU CAN'T PICK YOUR FAMILY...
Death by Chocolate is her favorite dessert. And those knitting needles aren't just for craft projects. To most people, Gin Bombay is an ordinary single mom. Then again, they don't know she's from a family of top secret assassins. Somewhere between leading a Girl Scout troop for her kindergartner--would nooses count for a knot badge?--and keeping their puppy from destroying the furniture, Gin now has to take out a new target.

BUT YOU CAN PICK THEM OFF
Except this target has an incredibly hot Australian bodyguard who knows just how to make her weak in the knees. But with a traitor threatening to expose everything, Gin doesn't have much time indulge her hormones. She's got to find the leak and clear her assignment...or she'll end up next on the Bombay family hit list.

From National Bestselling author, Leslie Langtry...

Coney Bombay isn't your average PhD.  While he may be well versed in philosophy, he's also one of the most lethal members of the Bombay Family of assassins.  Choosing to travel the world operating carnival rides and spending quite evenings knitting with his pet   guinea pig, even in his crazy family, Cy stands out as wild card.  But after a series of run-ins with perennial grad student, Veronica Gale, the cool cat is starting to feel a little hot under the collar.

In her research, Ronnie Gale has seen a lot.  Problem is, she hasn't actually done a lot.  The mysterious Cy Bombay seems about to change all of that when a whirlwind adventure takes them from the small-town country fair to the outer reaches of Mongolia, and into a murder mystery with Cy squarely in the center.  

Ronnie's going to have to climb out of her ivory tower and get a little down and dirty if she wants to survive Cy Bombay's wild ride.

Laura Smith is the mom of two adorable children, the wife of a successful businessman…and the unappreciated shadow of the woman she once was.  Somehow, her family never seems to notice that the laundry gets done, the house is picked up, dinner mysteriously appears on the table, and then cleans up after itself. Instead of being her children's idol and her husband's lover, she's become a funny little footnote in her own life. That is until she takes her children on vacation to Disneyworld in sunny Florida, where she just happens to end up in a hotel room right next to her college flame, Alan James.  Old passions ignite and new excitement sparks as Laura and Alan bring new meaning to "The Most Magical Place on Earth."  But when Laura and Alan's spouses unexpectedly show up in Florida, a comedy of errors ensues, and only one thing is for certain: Laura's life will never be the same again.

From USA Today bestselling author, Leslie Langtry comes another hilarious Merry Wrath Mystery...


For ex-CIA Agent turned Girl Scout troop leader, Merry Wrath, planning a wedding is infinitely more terrifying than the time she was a mole in Carlos the Armadillo’s drug cartel. To make matters worse, while plagued by insomnia (brought on by diabolical details that include bizarre things like "boutonnieres") Merry and her cat, Philby, witness a midnight murder next door.

 

Or do they? With her record of sleeplessness, everyone from her fiancé, Rex, to her Girl Scout troop are questioning her sanity. And when strange incidents of arson start popping up all over Who’s There, Iowa and a mysterious woman vanishes, Merry begins to believe her neighbors are foreign spies.

 

Throw in meeting her fiancé’s odd twin sisters, late night visits with Mr. Fancy Pants—the King Vulture at the zoo—and a scary sleep study, and Merry wonders if she’s in danger of losing her mind…or her life.

From USA Today bestselling author, Leslie Langtry comes a mystery series of laugh-out-loud proportions...


When CIA agent Merry Wrath is "accidently" outted, she's forced her into early retirement, changes her appearance, and moves where no one will ever find her—Iowa. Instead of black bag drops in Bangkok, she now spends her time leading a young Girl Scout troop. But Merry's new simple life turns not-so-simple when an enemy agent shows up dead at scout camp. Suddenly Merry is forced to deal with her former life in order to preserve her future one.

It doesn't help matters that the CIA sends in her former, sexy handler to investigate…or that the hot new neighbor across the street turns out to be the local detective in charge of her case. And when Merry is forced to take on a roommate in the voluptuous form of a turned KGB agent/bimbo, things become trickier than wet work in Waukegan or cookie sales in the spring. Nothing in the CIA or Girl Scouts' training manuals has prepared her for what comes next…
