    Evan Rocco has been a hero to Paige Lawson for as long as she could remember.  So when she runs into him in a bar after a major professional coup, she’s feeling celebratory and reckless.  But it can’t go anywhere, because after all, he’s Evan Rocco.  When she finds her gaming company in trouble, there’s only one man she can turn to. 
    Evan can’t get the woman who disappeared after their one-night-stand six months ago out of his head.  He’d honestly thought there was more between them besides just sex—a connection he’d never felt before.  When PSL, his favorite game software company is the victim of sabotage, he jumps at the chance to help them solve the mystery behind The Crimson Lady, the fan-made character who’s taking credit for murder.  Maybe it will get his mind off the woman of his dreams. 
    When he realizes who the CEO of PSL actually is, he has to get over his own issues or else he’ll put the one woman in danger he never wanted to hurt.

    Midnight Alpha is the fourth, and full-length novel in USA Today Bestselling author Carole Mortimer’s SCORCHING HOT new ALPHA series. Sizzling contemporary romance with an added dash of danger. 
     
    Stories of dark and compelling ALPHA men, who are used to taking what they want when they want it, and the strong and determined women who have no intention of being taken. Unless it’s on their own terms... 
     
    Gregori Markovic recently became the head of the Russian family that rules London’s criminal underworld. Aged in his mid-thirties some considered him too young for the position. Not any more, he has already been tried and tested, and more than proved himself worthy. 
     
    Gaia Miller is looking for the man responsible for the death of her sister, and she doesn’t mind putting herself in danger if it means finding that man. Going to work at Utopia, one of the exclusive nightclubs and casinos owned by Gregori Markovic, gives her the perfect opportunity to find him and ensure that he pays for his crime. 
     
    Even if that man should turn out to be Gregori Markovic himself. 
     
    Cold and remote, Gregori finds the ice he keeps about his emotions begins to melt from his very first momentous meeting with Gaia Miller, as he is drawn to her warmth and passion in a way he never has been with any other woman. 
     
    Suspicious of Gregori Markovic’s involvement in her sister’s death, Gaia hadn’t expected him to be quite as devastatingly handsome or so powerfully imposing. Or to find herself irresistibly drawn to the sharp edge of danger that surrounds him. 
     
    As different as night and day, and with so many secrets standing between them, the two nevertheless can’t seem to stay away from each other, or to resist every opportunity to explore the depths of that attraction. Wherever that passion might take them. 
     
    But Gregori has already made enemies, one powerful enemy in particular. A man who will stop at nothing to make Gregori suffer in the same way he’s suffered, by taking someone from him that he cares about. He sees Gregori’s deepening involvement with Gaia Miller as the perfect way to exact that revenge. 
     
    Author Note—the novellas and full-length novels in the ALPHA series have sexier situations and stronger language than my other books.

    “A dynamic story line that grips from the first chapter and doesn't let go.” 
    --Midwest Book Review, Diane Donovan (regarding Once Gone) 
    
    From #1 bestselling author Blake Pierce comes a new masterpiece of psychological suspense: CAUSE TO FEAR (An Avery Black Mystery—Book 4).
    
    When a body turns up floating beneath the frozen Charles River, the Boston Police summons its most brilliant and controversial homicide detective—Avery Black—to close the case. It doesn’t take Avery long, however, to realize that this is no isolated murder: it is the work of a serial killer.
    
    Other bodies begin to turn up, all of them sharing one thing in common: all are trapped in ice. Is it all a coincidence—or the signature of a particularly deranged killer?
    
    As the media converges and Avery suffers pressure from her bosses, she struggles to crack the inexplicable case, too bizarre even for her brilliant mind. At the same time she tries to keep her own depression at bay, as her personal life spirals to a new low. And she does it all while trying to enter the mind of a psychotic and elusive killer.
    
    What she will find will shock even her, and make her realizes that nothing is what it seems—and that the worst darkness may sometimes be closest to us.
    
    A psychological thriller with heart-pounding suspense, CAUSE TO FEAR is book #4 in a riveting new series—with a beloved new character—that will leave you turning pages late into the night. 
    
    Book #5 in the Avery Black series will be available soon. 
    
    “A masterpiece of thriller and mystery. Pierce did a magnificent job developing characters with a psychological side, so well described that we feel inside their minds, follow their fears and cheer for their success. The plot is very intelligent and will keep you entertained throughout the book. Full of twists, this book will keep you awake until the turn of the last page.” 
    --Books and Movie Reviews, Roberto Mattos (re Once Gone)
