    I’m protected by the mob, but for how long once I have testified against my father? Though my heart longs for the man I only ever knew as X, I still have a job to do. Protect my sister and get my father sent down. I might want to see my father behind bars, but I haven’t forgotten the events that led me to this point. Vengeance runs through my veins like blood and I won’t give up so easily. 
    But when I think I see X on the street, everything changes. If I believe it is him, it means he never came back for me. I can’t live with the not knowing—is X still alive, and did he ever care for me at all? 
    X... 
    I woke from the incident with a name that is not my own, and only a black hole where my memories used to be. But then I am accosted on the street by a beautiful woman with dark eyes, telling me I’d been sent to kill her. I can’t get her out of my head, and I know I have to find her again. She’ll be my key to unlocking what I’ve lost ... as long as we can both stay alive long enough to find out.

    Pursued by the Viscount is the fourth story in USA Today bestselling author Carole Mortimer’s highly acclaimed Kindle Top100 Regency Unlaced Series. 
    
     
    
    Author’s Note: The stories in the Regency Unlaced, Alpha, and Knight Security series have stronger sexual content and language than my other books. 
    
     
    
    Lady Rachel Shaw had believed her unhappiness to be at an end once her husband died, but now she finds herself caught in the clutches of a cruel and relentless blackmailer. Totally at a loss as to who she can turn to for help, her friend the Countess of Winterbourne, advises Rachel to go to Lucien Brooke, Viscount Brooketon, a gentleman who was recently of assistance to Fliss and her husband. 
    
     
    
    Rachel doesn’t know Lucien Brooke personally, but she has seen him many times at one Society event or another, and knows him to be an aristocratic and handsome gentleman who has avoided every attempt by the beauties of the ton to be lured into matrimony. Gossip and reputation say the viscount as being a cold and arrogant gentleman who does not suffer fools gladly. And Rachel has been very foolish indeed. 
    
     
    
    Left with no other choice, Rachel finally decides to risk the viscount’s scorn and ask for his help. 
    
     
    
    Lucien Brooke, Viscount Brooketon cannot deny Lady Rachel Shaw’s beauty or desirability, but unfortunately she is also as flighty and flirtatious as his mother, a woman who has been embroiled in one scandal after another for most of his life. That being the case, Rachel Shaw is the type of woman whom Lucien has always avoided having any personal involvement. 
    
     
    
    Looks can be deceiving, however, and within minutes of Rachel calling at his home and explaining her current predicament, Lucien realizes he was wrong to have judged the lady without really knowing her, or her circumstances. 
    
     
    
    He now not only wants to help Rachel in her current predicament but he also wants her. In his arms. In his bed. 
    
     
    
    Persuading Rachel into accept any of those things from him is going to be a battle Lucien has every intention of winning.

    I’m wanted dead by the most powerful mobster in the country. Trouble is, he’s also my father. 
    My name is Verity Guerra and I’m the daughter of the most ruthless mafia man in New York. Now in Witness Protection, I only care about my younger sister, and living long enough to testify against the man who has forced us to run. I knew he’d send someone after me, but I didn’t bank on a hit man known only as X, with cheekbones sharp enough to grate Italian cheese on and muscles that won’t quit. 
    I had saved her life, but I had also been paid to make sure she turned up dead. 
    People know me as X, and killing isn’t just my job—it’s in my blood. But the moment I saw a picture of the mobster’s daughter, I was already hooked. With her silky dark hair, tattoos, and a mouth that looked designed for kissing, I couldn’t get her out of his head. But when I’m sent to take her down, I discover she’s more of an adversary than I’d bargained for. 
    Turns out, love and hate aren’t so far apart after all. Can we fight our hidden desires, or will we both end up dead?

    Savage Alpha is the 8th story in USA Today Bestselling author, Carole Mortimer’s, #1 Bestselling Alpha series. 
    Author’s Note: The stories in the Alpha Series are steaming hot and the language sometimes explicit. 
     
    Who does Lily go to for help when a fan’s admiration turns to a dangerous obsession? 
     
    Her four older brothers are the obvious choice, especially when they own and run Knight Security. But Lily has fought long and hard for her independence from her family, and for her career as an actress. She certainly doesn’t want one of her brothers—or possibly all four of them—wading in with their usual arrogance and taking over her life again. 
    But as the fan’s obsession becomes darker, the “gifts” more bizarre, Lily knows she has no choice. 
     
    The last thing Jonas Grayfeather wants it to accept a job protecting the spoilt sister of the Knight brothers. But Gabriel, the eldest brother, and the man who once saved Jonas’s life, is calling in that favor, and so leaving Jonas with no choice but to at least check into whether or not Lily Knight really is being stalked. 
     
    A single meeting with Lily, and Jonas knows she’s going to be even more of a pain in his ass than any of her four overbearing brothers has ever been. She’s outspoken, annoying, and so stubborn Jonas’s first instinct is to put her over his knee, and give her the spanking she obviously should have received as a child. 
    She’s also wild and beautiful, sexy as hell, and arouses him with just a glance of those sexy green eyes. Whether they like it or not, the attraction is mutual, and the desire quickly blazes out of control between the two of them. 
     
    But Lily’s reckless disregard for Jonas’s efforts to protect her, may result in one or both of them ending up dead. 
    If they don’t kill each other with passion first…

    What would it be like to return to your hometown after twenty-five years in prison for a crime you have maintained you did not commit? And why would you?
    
    Walter Desmond is back in Trafalgar, British Columbia, having been officially exonerated when new evidence showed corruption at worst, incompetence at best, by the Trafalgar City Police conducting the investigation. His pitbull attorney is seeking five million in damages from the provincial government. But Walt has not returned to Trafalgar to pursue money or revenge. He just wants to know the why of it.
    
    The family of the murdered girl, Sophia D’Angelo, is bitterly determined to see Walt returned to prison—or dead. But for Trafalgar’s police, including Sergeant John Winters and Constable Molly Smith, the reality is: if Walter didn’t kill Sophia, someone else did. 
    
    So, case reopened. It lands on Winters’ desk. The records are moldering. One investigating officer is dead, the other is retired—and not talking. The police are instructed to treat Walt as if he’d never been arrested or convicted. Someone else apparently killed Sophia, someone still walking free.
    
    But too many minds remain closed. It’s good luck for Walt that a group of women in town for the dragon boat race are staying in the B&B where he’s booked, women with no local prejudices. But then a townswoman, then a boat woman, are attacked by a rapist, the media gets active, and tempers dangerously flare. 
    
    "Another brisk whodunit in a beautiful western Canadian setting with an appealing protagonist in Molly, whose personal life gets as much attention as her professional one."—Booklist on the previous Constable Molly Smith mystery, Under Cold Stone.
