“The Look of Love is the perfect combination of sexy heat and tender heart. This character driven romance has brains, brawn and the perfect bad boy to launch a whole family’s worth of fun.” -Barbara F., #1 NYT Bestselling Author

Chloe Peterson is having a bad night. A really bad night. The large bruise on her cheek can attest to that. And when her car skids off the side of a wet country road straight into a ditch, she’s convinced even the gorgeous guy who rescues her in the middle of the rain storm must be too good to be true. Or is he?

As a successful photographer who frequently travels around the world, Chase Sullivan has his pick of beautiful women, and whenever he’s home in San Francisco, one of his seven siblings is usually up for causing a little fun trouble. Chase thinks his life is great just as it is—until the night he finds Chloe and her totaled car on the side of the road in Napa Valley. Not only has he never met anyone so lovely, both inside and out, but he quickly realizes she has much bigger problems than her damaged car. Soon, he is willing to move mountains to love—and protect—her, but will she let him?

Chloe vows never to make the mistake of trusting a man again. Only, with every loving look Chase gives her—and every sinfully sweet caress—as the attraction between them sparks and sizzles, she can’t help but wonder if she’s met the only exception. And although Chase didn’t realize his life was going to change forever in an instant, amazingly, he isn’t the least bit interested in fighting that change. Instead, he’s gearing up for a different fight altogether…for Chloe’s heart.

“Tendrils of Life is a literary gem, a novel I recommend to readers, especially those who appreciate good writing and historical fiction.” -Anne-Rae V.

Acute food shortages and lawlessness plague communist-occupied Seoul at the start of the Korean War in 1950. Jimin, a sixteen-year-old boy, aches to return to the safety of his old home on Ockdo (Jade Island), a remote island he’d left five years earlier. But only his father, who is absent from home, knows the way. His adversary, a man who’s been plotting to wipe out Jimin’s family and steal their island, brings a tragedy and tries to eliminate him, forcing him to traverse the war-torn country on foot with his seven-year-old sister to find his father.

But the war sweeps across the country multiple times and hinders them from meeting up with their father. Back in Seoul, with Chinese troops (who invade the country to prop up the communists) bearing down on them, Jimin is forced to join the army, leaving his sister alone, hungry, and homeless in the cold, bomb-devastated city. During a long march, Jimin succumbs to hunger and fatigue and is left to die at a roadside house.

He is rescued by a girl he loves, but the war, his adversary, and personal misfortunes continue to thwart his goal of returning to his island with his girl, father, and sister. He miraculously survives a massacre and an epidemic of relapsing fever and undergoes other gut-wrenching trials. He finally stumbles on his father, who is very ill with tuberculosis, and he must overcome formidable obstacles to return to Ockdo. With action and suspense, Tendrils of Life is a rich and intriguing upmarket fiction, interwoven with gripping character-oriented narratives and full of visual detail. It’s a story of love and hope, greed and revenge, and the quest for survival in the turmoil of war – a depiction of resilience of the human spirit.

Born in Rio

Genre: Contemporary Fiction

Rita Ray was cold-hearted, no doubt, a straight shooter with an enviable banking career in New York City. She had no real recollections of her childhood before the age of ten, when she fled with her mother from Brazil to the United States. She never learned why. A box of letters, found following her mother’s death, will reveal evidence of a puzzling past back in Brazil. Born in Rio is a moving, psychologically charged novel with thrilling turns, embraced by a contemporary love affair in Rio de Janeiro.

Rita’s journey of discovery, and self-discovery, delights readers in a well-crafted plot among lush descriptions of Brazil–its history, its people and its soul. Laced with wit and spiced with mystery, it’s a compelling, transporting tale with a heart. In the 2016 Summer Olympic city Rita might just find what she never thought she was looking for. An immigrant story. A devastating crime. A chance to forgive, to love again. And a woman born in Rio.

Her USA Today bestseller, SLEEP TIGHT, was called “compelling and real – a great read,” by Andrea Kane. “Guaranteed to keep you awake at night,” raved Lisa Jackson. With her newest novel, Anne Frasier will really take your breath away… Watch your back, Elise. No one understands the dark side of Savannah better than homicide detective Elise Sandburg. As an infant, she was thought to be the daughter of a famous root doctor-and was abandoned in an ancient Low Country cemetery. Growing up, she was haunted by her possible connection to the local Gullah culture-with its spells and voodoo.

Now, however, there’s a twisted killer on the loose, and the city is gripped by terror. Someone is using a substance that leaves its victims in a state that mimics death. As their bodies slip into an irreversible paralysis, their minds remain fully, shockingly awake. Before you wake up dead. Step by step, Elise’s relentless chase for the killer draws her straight back into the world she most fears. And now, to stop a murderer, she must confront the truth about her own past in ways she never could have imagined…
