Janet Evanovich
Janet Evanovich’s #1 New York Times bestselling sensation Stephanie Plum returns in her twenty-forth thriller as mutilated corpses litter the streets of New Jersey... 

Trouble comes in bunches for Stephanie Plum. First, professional grave robber and semi-professional loon, Simon Diggery, won’t let her take him in until she agrees to care for his boa constrictor, Ethel. Stephanie’s main qualification for babysitting an extremely large snake is that she owns a stun gun—whether that’s for use on the wandering serpent or the petrified neighbors remains to be seen.

Events take a dark turn when headless bodies start appearing across town. At first, it’s just corpses from a funeral home and the morgue that have had the heads removed. But when a homeless man is murdered and dumped behind a church Stephanie knows that she’s the only one with a prayer of catching this killer.

If all that’s not enough, Diesel’s back in town. The 6-foot-tall, blonde-haired hunk is a man who accepts no limits—that includes locked doors, closed windows and underwear. Trenton’s hottest cop, Joe Morelli isn’t pleased at this unexpected arrival nor is Ranger, the high-powered security consultant who has his own plans for Stephanie.

As usual Jersey’s favorite bounty hunter is stuck in the middle with more questions than answers. What’s the deal with Grandma Mazur’s latest online paramour? Who is behind the startling epidemic of mutilated corpses? And is the enigmatic Diesel’s sudden appearance a coincidence or the cause of recent deadly events?

PROTECTOR WOLF
by Linda O. Johnston
When naturalist Maya Everton travels to Washington State, she is nearly attacked by a pack of wolves—until another wolf arrives to drive them off. Later, she discovers Lieutenant Ryan Blaiddinger shifting and realizes he is her mysterious protector. Ryan is a member of the elite unit of shapeshifters known as Alpha Force, whose mission is at cross-purposes with hers…

But as news of the attacks spreads in the small community, the scientist and soldier unite to protect area wolves from locals who will stop at nothing to decimate the perceived threat. And close together in the moonlit woods, they may not be able to resist their own natural instincts…


STRANGERS OF THE NIGHT by Megan Hart
Three young people with a shared tragic past that left them burdened as well as blessed with supernatural talents are now the target of forces determined to harm them.

In this enthralling trilogy, these fearless, damaged souls are ready to embrace the unfathomable but are wholly unprepared for the passion they find in the arms of a stranger.

Love blooms best when the night falls, doesn’t it? Don’t miss this scintillating collection of novellas from New York Times bestselling author Megan Hart!


Karen Whiddon
La nuit où tout a commencé, Karen Whiddon Reed n’en croit pas ses yeux... Est-ce bien Kaitlyn qui se tient face à lui et le fixe de ce regard bleu qu’il n’a jamais pu oublier ? Luttant contre l’envie de lui claquer la porte au nez, il laisse entrer chez lui la femme à cause de laquelle il vient de passer trois ans en prison. Dans sa tête, les questions se bousculent : pourquoi Kaitlyn a-t-elle disparu la nuit où Tim, le frère de Reed, a été tué ? Pourquoi n’a-t-elle pas révélé qu’elle et Reed étaient ensemble au moment du crime ? Prenant la parole la première, Kaitlyn lui fait alors une stupéfiante révélation : juste après le meurtre, elle a été enlevée par l’assassin de Tim, un fou furieux auquel elle vient seulement d’échapper et qui est à sa recherche car elle est la seule à connaître son identité... Une dangereuse mission, Linda O. Johnston Pour découvrir dans quelles circonstances Brody, son ex-petit ami, a été tué en Afghanistan, Sherra pirate régulièrement les systèmes informatiques du ministère de la Défense. Un soir, elle sent le doute l’envahir : Brody est-il réellement mort, ou sa disparition a-t-elle été orchestrée pour servir quelque objectif ultra-secret ? Mais, tandis qu’elle s’interroge ainsi, elle sent une main se plaquer sur sa bouche et, se retournant, découvre que son mystérieux agresseur n’est autre que Brody. Troublée malgré elle par ces étranges retrouvailles, Sherra comprend que, si Brody est venu chez elle, ce n’est pas uniquement pour la revoir, mais pour lui demander de cesser ses activités clandestines. Des activités qui risquent de compromettre sa mission et de les mettre tous deux en danger de mort...
