From New York Times bestselling author Lexi Ryan comes a sexy new standalone romance about a woman torn between two men from her past, searching for missing memories that could hold the key to her future.
I’m in love with a man who tried to kill me. At least that’s what they tell me . . .
Six weeks ago, paramedics found me unconscious in my own home. Beaten. Bruised. Hardly breathing. When I woke up, I couldn’t remember the last three years or anything about my life in Jackson Harbor. They tell me my fiancé, Colton McKinley, is on the run for what he did to me. They tell me I’m safer if I stay away.
I don’t care if my memories ever come back. I want nothing to do with those missing years . . . until a sexy stranger with angry eyes shows up on my doorstep and demands I stop ignoring him.
Levi Jackson is my fiancé’s best friend, but seeing him sparks something inside me. As the truth unravels in my mind, I know they’re wrong about Colton. My own secrets are far more dangerous than the man I was engaged to.
I return to Jackson Harbor to search for answers and find myself running from a faceless boogeyman and seeking refuge in Levi’s arms. And in his bed.
I can’t deny my feelings for Levi. But as the pile of lies between us grows, I realize that sometimes the truth can’t set us free. Sometimes, it’s the very thing that can destroy us.

But first she needs to make herself strong enough to face him, and that means collecting power as only a sylph can. Joining the Raven Knights means committing more than her life to defeating the True Kingdom. She’s committing her soul…and her body.

The debut novel of an astonishing voice in psychological suspense
As dusk approaches a small Dublin suburb in the summer of 1984, mothers begin to call their children home. But on this warm evening, three children do not return from the dark and silent woods. When the police arrive, they find only one of the children gripping a tree trunk in terror, wearing blood-filled sneakers, and unable to recall a single detail of the previous hours.
Twenty years later, the found boy, Rob Ryan, is a detective on the Dublin Murder Squad and keeps his past a secret. But when a twelve-year-old girl is found murdered in the same woods, he and Detective Cassie Maddox—his partner and closest friend—find themselves investigating a case chillingly similar to the previous unsolved mystery. Now, with only snippets of long-buried memories to guide him, Ryan has the chance to uncover both the mystery of the case before him and that of his own shadowy past.
Richly atmospheric, stunning in its complexity, and utterly convincing and surprising to the end, In the Woods is sure to enthrall fans of Mystic River and The Lovely Bones.
Until he met vampire hunter Jack Harlan, Sam Fisher lived a quiet, peaceful life. Now that dark creatures have murdered his wife and kidnapped his daughter, Sam must learn everything he can from his new mentor to find his little girl before it’s too late.
One plus size woman who wants to have a child via artificial insemination because her biological clock is ticking. One reclusive billionaire who is more than willing to give her the kid she wants...the natural way. Two people who might very well discover that what they'd wanted at the beginning of their relationship isn't what they'd really needed at all!!!
I have everything I've always wanted. A successful career as a plus size model, a new business that's flourishing, financial security, and amazing friends who I know will always have my back.
So everything should be perfect in my world, right? I should be content.
Unfortunately, I'm not. I want to have a child, and my biological clock is ticking way too loudly for my liking. Since every man I'd ever dated was a jerk, I was okay with not having a man in my life. I'd already decided I was better off without one. Problem was, I did need a baby daddy, so my only solution was to find a sperm donor, and I was ready to do exactly that at a fertility clinic...until a very unlikely source, billionaire Mason Lawson, offers to knock me up the natural way.
I mean, really? How can a woman who wants to have a child not consider Mason's offer? The man was every woman's fantasy, including mine. I can't even look at him without wanting to tear his clothes off and find out what's underneath that cool, businesslike, billionaire facade.
Honestly though, I just don't understand his motives. Why would he want to have an intimate relationship with a plus size woman like me? Not that I wouldn't love to dip into his "gene pool," but why in the world does he want to be the father of my child?
I wasn't about to accept his offer. There would be way too many complications, but I'm still intrigued by the man who put that option out there in the first place.
Why did he do it?
Somebody like Mason is the man a woman really wants but can never have.
He's the unattainable.
Still, as Mason starts a sensual game of seduction with me, I'm finding it almost impossible to resist the urge to play with him, even if it's only for a little while....

Talia hadn’t planned on dying today. But accidentally defying the Supernatural Council isn’t exactly a wise life plan. When she did her duty and touched a bloody knife to determine guilt or innocence, her vision seemed…off. So was Councilman Gideon’s rush to declare a shivering child guilty of murder.
Now Talia’s trying to lose herself in the West Virginia mountains with the child in tow. And the mercenary on their tail has an uncanny ability to find them, no matter how far they run.

His wife left him for a younger man. He blames himself. He could not give her what she had needed, so another man had. Now, two years later, she needs what only he can give her: a defense to a murder charge.
In this sequel to The Color of Law, A. Scott Fenney must defend his ex-wife, Rebecca, who is accused of murdering the man she left him for. Trey Rawlins, a rising star on the pro golf tour, is found dead in his $4 million Galveston beach house with a butcher knife in his chest—and Rebecca's fingerprints are found on the murder weapon. The police refuse to investigate other suspects, so Scott must. The case takes Scott to Galveston, and the investigation takes him behind the scenes of the image-conscious, corporate-sponsored pro golf tour—into a world of million-dollar purses and endorsement deals, agents and caddies, groupies and WAGs. Scott digs deep into Trey Rawlins and discovers a lifestyle that cost him his life—and that now threatens Scott's.
