Experience what reviewers are calling "a brilliant continuation to the world created in His Wicked Games"...
SECRETS. LIES. AND A DESIRE THAT CAN'T BE DENIED.
Louisa Cunningham has lost everything. Burdened by grief and heartache, she does something desperate—she assumes a false identity and takes a job at Huntington Manor, the luxury tourist attraction that was once her family's estate.
Nobody here knows who she really is. Not even the sexy, mysterious handyman who knows how to push all her buttons.
He's everything she knows she should stay away from. He's a playboy. He's constantly getting in fights. And he resents the Cunninghams for reasons Louisa doesn't understand. But in spite of herself, she can't stay away from him, even when that puts her secret at risk. Even when it becomes increasingly clear that he harbors a few secrets of his own...

Things had been bad enough for the inspiring and beautiful young Helga Wensley when her much-loved father died some five years ago, leaving her and her mother in penury.
Recently her ailing mother too has passed away, which means that her stepfather, Sir Hector Preston, is now her Guardian. To make matters worse he promises her hand in marriage to a cruel and uncouth man called Bernard Howell, a Fate that she considers worse than dying.
As her mother suggested soon before her death, Helga goes for help to her estranged Aunt Millicent, a glamorous actress from the notorious Gaiety Theatre – and her life changes forever.
Putting herself forward for a 'role' paying her one thousand pounds in which she pretends to be the fiancée of the dashing Hugo, Duke of Rocklington, Helga finds herself with the most sought-after bachelor in the whole of the Social world at his fabulous country seat, Rock Castle.
And, despite Aunt Millicent's firm instructions not to fall in love with the Duke, Helga is smitten and finds that playing the part of the lovestruck fiancée requires no acting at all.
But all that changes when by chance Helga again meets the dreaded Bernard Howell, who pursues her brandishing his horse whip and she races back to Rock Castle to the Duke to save her –
Ancient ruins, haunted memories, and a ruthless criminal combine with a touch of mystic presence in this taut mystery about a crime we all must address.
Maggie, a National Park Ranger, is back at the Castle – an ancient Native American pueblo carved into the face of a limestone cliff in Arizona. Maggie, who suffers from depression, has been through several traumas: the gang rape she suffered while in the Coast Guard, the sudden death of her ten-year-old son, and a suicide attempt. As part of her therapy Maggie volunteers at the local rape crisis clinic.
Maggie has several men in her life. The baker, newcomer Jim Casey, always greets her with a warm smile and fills pink boxes with sweet delicacies. Brett Collins, a scuba diver, is doing scientific studies in Montezuma Well, a dangerous cylindrical depression that houses a deep spring filled with strange creatures found nowhere else on Earth. Then there’s Dave, with whom she’s had a one-night stand, and her new boss Glen.
One of these men is a serial rapist, and Maggie is his next target.

In return for her family’s safe passage out of the country, the breathtakingly lovely Claire Devereux agrees to be his mistress.

Claire surrendered her body to Duhet, but swore he’d never break her spirit. What she didn’t know was that the real Duhet had been abducted, and his American twin brother, Adam Dillon, was installed in his place as a spy. And she was devastated to find that her body was not at all immune to the pleasures of Duhet’s caress, nor her heart to his intoxicating company. “I consider Elizabeth Thornton a major find.” —Mary Balogh, New York Times–bestselling author of the Westcott Novels
