    “Block is a master of witty dialogue, plotting and pace, and the series’ wacky, offbeat characters make great companions.” —Cleveland Plain-Dealer   "Fans will welcome it. New readers will delight in it. A witty, and always affectionate, sendup of the genre.” —Denver Post   “Clever and amusing.” —Detroit Free Press   “Wittily diverting…rather like an Agatha Christie novel narrated by Basil Fawlty, or a game of Clue organized by Monty Python.” —Entertainment Weekly   “Block peoples his mystery with a wacky cast of characters who all happen to have a knack for snappy dialogue, the wackiest and snappiest being Bernie himself, of course.” —Florida Times-Union   “Rhodenbarr is one of the slickest characters in crime, and Block…one of the most talented writers.” —Houston Chronicle   “…you’d rather be stranded on a desert island with [Bernie Rhodenbarr] than with any other detective in fiction.” —Kirkus Reviews   “In his Matthew Scudder books, Block is one of the most serious of crime novelists. When he chronicles Bernie…Block is one of the funniest…[Bernie] is enough to give burglary a good name.” —Los Angeles TimesBernie Rhodenbarr has gone legit -- almost -- as the new owner of a used bookstore in New York's Greenwich Village. Of course, dusty old tomes don't always turn a profit, so to make ends meet, Bernie's forced, on occasion, to indulge in his previous occupation: burglary. Besides which, he likes it.Now a collector is offering Bernie an opportunity to combine his twin passions by stealing a very rare and very bad book-length poem from a rich man's library.The heist goes off without a hitch. The delivery of the ill-gotten volume, however, is a different story. Drugged by the client's female go-between, Bernie wakes up in her apartment to find the book gone, the lady dead, a smoking gun in his hand, and the cops at the door. And suddenly he's got to extricate himself from a rather sticky real-life murder mystery and find a killer -- before he's booked for Murder One.

    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.

    ** Newly edited to improve and expand content! ** 
    They trust no one… 
    TREX Special Agent Dan Weber gave up his director position to take the lead role on the team assigned to protect the greatest biological weapon ever created. Now it’s disappeared. It’s up to Dan to hunt down the double agent suspected of stealing the weapon and threatening to unleash it on the world if his demands aren’t met. TREX pairs Dan with a reckless rookie—a rookie who looks more like a swimsuit model than a member of the covert agency. 
    Reeling from past betrayals, Dan doesn't trust anyone—especially the gorgeous tomboy he’s been saddled with. The rookie will only get in his way and slow him down. The fact she stirs up feelings in him he’s long since buried means nothing. There’s a mole within the agency, one hell bent on taking out every member of Dan’s team before destroying the world, and Dan will stop at nothing to find the mole at any cost. His new partner’s interest in his team is more than a coincidence, and he’s determined to find out why. 
    Including each other… 
    Determined to prove herself in a male-dominated field, Agent JT Turner eagerly accepts a shady mission to track down a phantom weapon the agency denies ever existed. Too eagerly, according to Dan. JT sees it as a chance to show them all she belongs on the frontline—the first female to make it into spec ops. Being paired with their top agent, superspy Dan Weber himself, guarantees her a spot in the elite division—even if it means taking his. 
    Refusing to let a hungry rookie screw up such an important mission, Dan sets out to uncover the mole on his own—someone who just might be closer than anyone realizes. But JT won't stand down; she's got an agenda of her own and plans to uncover the mole before Dan. 
    When the two unlikely partners track the weapon to Colombia, they uncover a deeper plot than either could have realized, one that hits them both personally and threatens everything they’ve ever stood for. Undermanned and unarmed, can JT and Dan unravel a madman's plot and remove the threat before it’s unleashed? In a race against time, the line between desire and destiny will blur, and their true desires will finally be met. 
    It’s the adventure of a lifetime—if they can survive.
