Summary

She achieved something momentous: writing by hand, she composed a novel that has become the talk of Swiss Literary Circles. New York Times
 

A compelling, edgily atmospheric portrait of an uneasy city and a young woman's struggle to find her place in the world. With quiet understated assurance, The Sky is Changing asks big questions about our fragmented society. C. J. Schuler, The Independent 



London: A group of thirty-somethings meet to celebrate a birthday. All seems normal. But, after two years of trying, Claire and Anthony have still not conceived a child, and pulsing with the fear of terrorist attacks, the city is crackling with tension. Befriending a young girl, Nora, Claire finds herself drawn as her maternal instincts begin to blur. 
Meanwhile, Anthony is forced to question his job as a City Analyst as their safe and secure existence begins to fracture. As Claire retraces the journey she has made since an accident ended her promising career as a ballet dancer in Berlin, she realises her life has moved beyond her control.

    There are bad boys and then there are the men of Devil’s Rock . . . 
    Some men come with a built-in warning label. Knox Callaghan is one of them. Danger radiates from every lean, muscled inch of him, and his deep blue eyes seem to see right through to Briar Davis’s most secret fantasies. But there’s one major problem: Briar is a nurse volunteering at the local prison, and Knox is an inmate who should be off-limits in every way. 
    Knox feels it too—a shocking animal magnetism that drives him to risk his own life to protect Briar’s. Paroled at last, he tries to resist her. She’s too innocent, too sweet, and she has no idea what Knox is capable of. But a single touch can lead to a kiss—and a taste . . . until the only crime is denying what feels so right . . .

    “A villain so unique, he gave me nightmares and fantasies.”—Jeaniene Frost 
    When it comes to bad boys, no one beats Sammy Divine (a.k.a. Satan, Lucifer, Scratch). But whatever name he cares to go by, Sammy is one sexy devil—as New York Times bestselling RITA Award winner Terri Garey so delectably demonstrates in A Devil Named Desire. Sammy’s second unforgettable appearance—after Devil Without a Cause—is tasty, tempting, and hotter than hell, as the irresistible Prince of Darkness sets out to prove to his archangel friend Gabriel that forbidden fruit, in the form of a beautiful woman, is impossible to resist. Garey delivers dark, edgy, wickedly wonderful paranormal fun that fans of Mary Janice Davidson and the Sookie Stackhouse novels of Charlaine Harris might eagerly sell their souls for.

    Have you heard?  
    The future Duke of Barrington has just been gambled away by his father. To an heiress! 
    The delicious details thus far... 
    Nicolas, Lord Hatherly, never intended to marry—nor add to the “mad” Hatherly line—but now he must honor his father’s debt to a social-climbing merchant or lose the family estate.  
    A notoriously wild marquess, won by her father at a game of cards, is the very last thing Miss Alice Tombs wants. She’s spent the last three seasons repelling suitors in spectacular fashion so she’d be at liberty to explore the world. She’ll just have to drive this one away as well. 
    Until Nick proposes an utterly tempting arrangement: one summer together to prove the legitimacy of their union, then Alice is free to travel while Nick revels in the time he has left before the Hatherly Madness takes hold. 
    It will be easy to walk away after a few months of make-believe wedded bliss—won’t it? Alice and Nick are about to find out...one sultry night at a time.

    Ex-SEAL and LOST founder Gabe Spencer is accustomed to the unusual in his job. But when knockout Eve Gray steps into his office, he's rattled. For the mysterious woman is a dead ringer for the heiress thought to be the latest prey of the serial killer who goes by the name Lady Killer.
