Summary

From her multiracial background to her unique talents in the world of art, Julia Rawson has always felt like a bit of an outsider. Now, as the very first female investigator working just outside of Washington D.C., for the Virginia Medical Examiner’s office, she’s continuing to live her life outside the norm—but this time, in the brave new world of investigating death. 
Just one year after the tragic events of 9/11, the twenty-seven-year-old finds herself navigating the incredible, often complex field of forensic science—lending her skills toward literally giving the deceased victims of crime a face. 
Facing death isn’t always easy. And her latest case, an unidentified body found in the mountains of western Virginia, has everyone especially perplexed. But at least she has her best friend Lisa to turn to—not to mention a certain forensic anthropologist, Dr. Michael Cuezze, who seems to understand Julia in a way no one else can. 
Written by a real-life forensic professional, this captivating mystery delves into Julia’s life as she struggles to adjust to her new profession—and works to bring justice to one of many faceless victims of homicide once and for all.

    The restaurant is crowded and noisy. The man sits by the window, watching the grey sky, bored, as he is every Monday morning. Suddenly he turns and she's there, standing in front of him. Years have passed since he last saw her, since the day he left, without an explanation, without a reason. Yet only now does he realize he never stopped loving her, even for a second. When she tries to run away from him, too shocked by the sudden onslaught of emotions, he stops her. And as they embrace, surrounded by passersby, they promise to hold on, to make mistakes again. To love each other. Deeply and forever.
    
    With his intimate, almost whispered style, Pedro Chagas Freitas takes the reader on a journey to explore the deepest layers of their feelings and to discover the truth about love; the kind of love that touches, grabs and thrills you, that discovers and conceals, that wounds and heals, that seizes you and sets you free.

    A picture of deception . . .  
    Annabelle Lawson knew nothing about the breathtaking stranger she met on the train—only that he'd make an ideal model for the budding young artist . . . and that she desired him more than she believed possible. But after she'd been seduced, she learned that she'd also been betrayed.  
    The man she thought she loved was really Magnus Wallis—a scoundrel like his father before him, the loathed cousin of Annabelle's benefactor, the honorable Earl of Whitby.  
    A landscape of love . . .  
    No longer the naively romantic girl who would tumble for a rogue, Annabelle cannot avoid a reunion with the despicable Magnus, who wants to include her portraits in his new London gallery. She means to show him her coldest face—but upon seeing him again, her every intention melts from the heat of his touch. It is clear that Magnus still burns with love for her. But is he still the villain he once was, or can he be reformed into a man Annabelle can dare to love?

    From the Diary of Leonie Noirot: The perfect corset should invite its undoing . . . 
    Lethally charming Simon Blair, Marquess of Lisburne, has reluctantly returned to London for one reason only: a family obligation. Still, he might make time for the seduction of a certain redheaded dressmaker—but Leonie Noirot hasn't time for him. She's obsessed with transforming his cousin, the dowdy Lady Gladys, into a swan. 
    Leonie's skills can coax curves—and profits—from thin air, but his criminally handsome lordship is too busy trying to seduce her to appreciate her genius. He badly needs to learn a lesson, and the wager she provokes ought to teach him, once and for all. 
    A great plan, in theory—but Lisburne's become a serious distraction and Leonie's usual logic is in danger of slipping away as easily as a silk chemise. Could the Season's greatest transformation be her own?
