Kimmer Reed never intends to see her so-called family again. But when her brother shows up on her doorstep with gunmen on his heels, she does what comes naturally--she survives. Turns out he's in trouble (again) of his own making (again), and his survival strategy is to turn the bad guys on to Kimmer (of course).

But Kimmer is no longer a scared teen.  She's a highly trained covert agent with things worth fighting for--a life she loves, a house that's truly a home, and a strong partner who loves her.  And, it turns out, her so-called family now includes two innocent little girls--both currently in the hands of the same bad guys who have just turned Kimmer's life upside down.

Family.  Can't live with 'em, happy to live without 'em.  But no one makes Kimmer's choices for her--or for her two terrified nieces.  Look out, bad guys!
 

"Doranna Durgin's BEYOND THE RULES (4) is action-packed from start to finish. Kimmer is so strong that readers won't doubt for even a minute that she'll come out on top in the end. And Rio is a hero any woman could love."
--Romantic Times, Four Stars

"BEYOND THE RULES is a fascinating addition to the Bombshell line. Part action-adventure, part family drama, this story explores how far someone will go to do what's right..."
--Jennifer Wardrip, Romance Junkies

"BEYOND THE RULES is one of those reads that leaves you saying WOW! Kimmer Reed is a truly amazing heroine...the story flows wonderfully and keeps you on the edge of your seat."
--Wendy Keel, Romance Reader's Connection

"...Filled with unrelenting danger, heart-stopping action plus a wonderful touch of romance...With Kimmer's sharp-edged nature and brazen wit, Ms. Durgin has created a dynamic heroine. The storyline of this book merges the ever-present action and suspense with a heartfelt romance,"
--Amelia Richard, CataRomance

" Filled with action and suspense...an exciting read."
--Jennifer Bishop, Romance Reviews Today

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…
The Blythe College Collection: Drake and Alexa brings together Push the Envelope, Push it Forward (from Summer Nights), and Winter Wedding, three sensational new adult stories by bestselling author Rochelle Paige. This collection also features never seen before bonus scenes. 

"I love alpha males.... Yes I know Alpha males are the in thing but they need to be done right and in this book Drake is perfect." -Aurora Rose Reynolds, NYT bestselling author of the Until Series 

"Absolutely loved! I'm a sucker for the over the top, crazy in love alphas. You give me one of those and I'm sold." -Harper Sloan, USA Today bestselling author of the Corps Security Series 

Push the Envelope 
Alexa is just your average college junior, attending classes and piloting Mile High Club charter flights. Boys haven't been on her radar for a couple years after a disastrous breakup with her high school sweetheart. Her plans to focus on school hit a bit of a snag when she meets bad-boy Drake Bennett and he sets his sights on making her his own. 

Drake transferred to Blythe College for the rugby team, not for a new assortment of college girls. He's sexy and cocky, and he attracts women like moths to a flame. When he meets Alexa, Drake knows he's met his match. She tries to resist him, but Drake isn't used to taking no for an answer. 

Push it Forward (from Summer Nights) 
Drake and Alexa had a whirlwind romance in Push the Envelope, falling for each other hard and fast. But their newfound love is tested during summer break when their plans mean time spent apart. When danger comes knocking on Alexa's door with the return of her ex-boyfriend to town, Drake drops everything to be by her side.

Can Drake convince Alexa that it's time to push their relationship forward? Or will she allow her fears to hold her back? 

Winter Wedding 
All Alexa wants is to walk down the aisle to Drake with their family and friends surrounding them. Feeling the loss of her mother more acutely than ever, she agrees to a lavish event in an effort to please her new mother-in-law. The stress of a high-profile wedding starts to wear on her – and that's before things even start to go wrong. 

All Drake wants is to make Alexa his wife. He knows something is bothering his fiancée and means to get to the bottom of it. After a series of mishaps threaten to ruin their big day, he's determined to set things right for Alexa. Drake takes matters into his own hands to ensure that their wedding day is everything she's ever wanted – giving Alexa the winter wedding of a lifetime.
