As kids, Tania and Trevor's unsupervised play time offers a lifeline
to sanity amidst the chaos of family dysfunction. When danger threatens
Tania, Trevor isn't willing to stand by and watch his sister get hurt.
The instinct for survival is only rivaled by the killer instincts the
Wilde siblings encourage in each other. Instincts that turn into a
deadly game igniting their first taste for blood.



Book #1 in The Wilde Twins: a psychological thriller about an "evil twins" serial killing team--and their slow descent into amoral mayhem.

-Reviewer Top Pick at Night Owl Reviews (2011)
-Readers' Favorite Five Star Award (2014)


"A chilling portrayal of two young siblings from a broken home who
embark on a journey of bloodlust. Scott captures the pathos, the inner
turmoil, and the cold logic of surviving childhood in a world without
tenderness--with only the smell of cheap wine on its breath."

-- Charles Austin Muir, contributing author to Hell Comes to Hollywood (Stoker-nominated) and Dark Visions (Grey Matter Press)


"A true-to-life action-packed family drama, complete with sex, drugs, alcoholism, and violence."

-- Katherine Mayfield, author of Bullied


"Tragic, brutal, morbid and disturbingly enthralling. . .this is a
dark cautionary tale of children mutated by our sick and hypocritical
society that should not be missed."

-- Kristopher Miller, reviewer at The Catacomb's Bookshelf


"Events [in Playmates] progress to a crescendo and offer no
predictable conclusion. This means readers should be prepared for the
second installment of a slowly-building psychological thriller of the
emergence of evil and sociopathic responses to an impossible life."

-- D. Donovan, Senior eBook Reviewer, MB
"Reading Hideaway is like a mini vacation, as Roberts transports you from the sun-drenched mountains of Big Sur to the rolling hills of Ireland to the bustling streets of New York City." - Associated Press

A family ranch in Big Sur country and a legacy of Hollywood royalty set the stage for Nora Roberts’ emotional new suspense novel, Hideaway.

Caitlyn Sullivan had come from a long line of Hollywood royalty, stretching back to her Irish immigrant great-grandfather. At nine, she was already a star—yet still an innocent child who loved to play hide and seek with her cousins at the family home in Big Sur. It was during one of those games that she disappeared.

Some may have considered her a pampered princess, but Cate was in fact a smart, scrappy fighter, and she managed to escape her abductors. Dillon Cooper was shocked to find the bloodied, exhausted girl huddled in his house—but when the teenager and his family heard her story they provided refuge, reuniting her with her loved ones.

Cate’s ordeal, though, was far from over. First came the discovery of a shocking betrayal that would send someone she’d trusted to prison. Then there were years spent away in western Ireland, peaceful and protected but with restlessness growing in her soul.

Finally, she would return to Los Angeles, gathering the courage to act again and get past the trauma that had derailed her life. What she didn’t yet know was that two seeds had been planted that long-ago night—one of a great love, and one of a terrible vengeance...

Connell and Marianne grew up in the same small town, but the similarities end there. At school, Connell is popular and well liked, while Marianne is a loner. But when the two strike up a conversation—awkward but electrifying—something life changing begins.

A year later, they’re both studying at Trinity College in Dublin. Marianne has found her feet in a new social world while Connell hangs at the sidelines, shy and uncertain. Throughout their years at university, Marianne and Connell circle one another, straying toward other people and possibilities but always magnetically, irresistibly drawn back together. And as she veers into self-destruction and he begins to search for meaning elsewhere, each must confront how far they are willing to go to save the other.

Normal People is the story of mutual fascination, friendship and love. It takes us from that first conversation to the years beyond, in the company of two people who try to stay apart but find that they can’t.

“[A] novel that demands to be read compulsively, in one sitting.”—The Washington Post

“[Rooney] has been hailed as the first great millennial novelist for her stories of love and late capitalism. . . . [She writes] some of the best dialogue I’ve read.”—The New Yorker
