Rule of Law

Karin Tabke LLC

“When a man is denied the right to live the life he believes in, he has no choice but to become an outlaw."  ~ Nelson Mandela


Lana, a wayward senator’s daughter and dark angel in the making, must earn her freedom and her wings. Law, the underworld lord of a secret clan, captures her and gives her the space to battle her demons. But once she spreads her wings, will he set her free? 



RULE OF LAW


A vengeance quest that began twenty-five years ago...


Sold to the highest bidder, Alana Conti must fight for her life--and for her soul--when she comes face to face with Law, the mysterious underworld boss who obeys no laws but his own. His touch is commandingly sensual and Alana yields, taking the first steps into his intriguing life of crime and web of carnal promise.


Law's heart burns white hot but not for Lana--for revenge. The unspeakable crimes committed against his family cannot go unpunished. Senator Conti's beautiful, rebellious daughter is the perfect lure to draw his sworn enemy out from an island fortress. 


As Lana becomes an integral part of Law’s high-stakes world of vice, spies, and global politics, she accepts the reality of her situation: she’s fallen in love with an outlaw who can give her everything but her independence… and his love.


Forced to acknowledge his feelings for Lana, Law has no option but to surrender the one thing she desires most--her freedom…

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.
Three classic stories of romantic suspense from New York Times bestselling author Brenda Novak…

Trust Me

Four years ago, Skye Kellerman was attacked in her own bed. She managed to fend off her knife-wielding assailant, but the trauma changed everything about her life. But now, her would-be rapist is getting out of prison. Sacramento detective David Willis, who investigated her case, believes Burke is a clear and present danger--and now he’s is free to terrorize Skye again. Unless David can stop him. Unless Skye can fight back. Because Oliver Burke has every intention of finishing what he started…

Stop Me

Romain Fornier lost his reason for living when his daughter was kidnapped and murdered. He used a cop’s gun to mete out his own justice and spent the next few years in prison. After being freed, he learns that he might have killed the wrong man. Jasmine Stratford, a psychological profiler, is convinced the same killer kidnapped her sister sixteen years ago. She approaches Romain because she knows he can help her. But searching for the man who irrevocably changed both their lives means they have to rise to a killer’s challenge…

Watch Me

Teenagers Sheridan Kohl and Jason Wyatt were parked at the lake in Whiterock, Tennessee, when a stranger wearing a ski mask shot them both. Sheridan lived but Jason died—and the stranger was never caught. When Sheridan’s attacked a second time, it’s only because of Jason’s stepbrother, Cain Granger, that she survives. Cain knows that whoever killed his brother probably isn’t a stranger at all. But figuring out that person’s identity is easier said than done—especially since the killer seems to be taunting them both…
From #1 New York Times bestselling author Stephen King, the most riveting and unforgettable story of kids confronting evil since It—publishing just as the second part of It, the movie, lands in theaters.

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.
Strip clubs, kidnappings, the mafia, and undercover missions—it’s all here in the first three books in national bestselling author Karin Tabke’s sizzling Hot Cops series!

Book One: Good Girl Gone Bad
Philamina Zorn is a straight-laced, by-the-book cop working in internal affairs, and this time it’s landed her an undercover job at a gentleman’s club. Jaded vice cop Ty Jamerson has been forced to work with her, but makes it apparent he’d rather see her handing out parking tickets than working his case. But as they enter the sordid world of exotic dancers, murder, and kidnapping, these two hot cops discover that if they want to survive, they’ll have to strip more than just their inhibitions.

Book Two: Skin
Feisty Francesca Donatello needs the sexiest man on the planet to launch her magazine SKIN. Undercover cop Reese Bronson needs the job to infiltrate the Donatello organized crime family. While Reese sheds his clothes and Francesca captures it on film for her magazine, someone decides that Francesca belongs with her mob-boss father—dead. On the run from San Francisco to Wyoming, they dodge bullets and learn that trusting each other is the only way to stay alive.

Book Three: Jaded
Turned out at fourteen by her mother, Ruby Leigh Gentry has a dark past that she will do anything to keep there. Burned-out, cynical detective Jase Vaughn gets a job involving a sexual predator whose killings lead him to the door of the one woman who can break the case wide open: Jade Deveraux, the sultry proprietress of Callahan’s, a blueblood gentleman’s club. But Jade (a.k.a. Ruby Leigh) knows the same secrets as the killer. Are they one and the same…or is she the next victim?
