Undone_ReDes_5.25x8_FINAL2_e125dpi framed.jpg

When Maxine Ricci’s models are brutally murdered, she’s convinced a serial killer is targeting her New York agency. She’ll do whatever it takes to safeguard her people—even if that means hiring bodyguard Shane O’Rourke. He alone understands the demands of the fashion world, because he used to be one of Max’s top models—until she fired him.

Reeling from a lawsuit that could tank his private security firm, Shane's got no choice but to accept Max’s offer. Unfortunately, the logistics of the job are a nightmare—as is the distraction of keeping close quarters with the sexiest, most challenging woman he's ever known. And Shane’s already learned the hard way that failure in his line of work can be deadly.

Despite Max’s number one rule not to date anyone she works with, soon she and Shane are as tangled up as the killer’s mind. By the time they realize Max is the madman’s ultimate obsession—it might be too late for Shane to protect her. Can they find and stop the killer before everything they’ve built comes undone?

What’s a marine to do when he’s falling for the woman who filmed his wife’s last words?
Catch a murderer—before he loses her, too.

Eddie Mackey was busy defending his country when his wife supposedly committed suicide. A year later, he has a new mission: finding her murderer. The perfect starting point is the New York City photojournalist who filmed his wife’s last words.

Except Miranda Hill won’t betray the secrets of the dead, especially when she has to protect the living. Not to mention, a terrifying accident left her with PTSD and enough danger to last a lifetime. The last thing she needs is a determined marine jeopardizing her hard-won stability.

When Eddie’s investigation nearly costs Miranda her life, he adds protecting the gorgeous woman to the wrongs he must right. Sparks fly, even as it becomes clear they are embroiled in something far more sinister than they’d imagined. But higher stakes soon erode the tenuous trust Eddie and Miranda have built. With a killer determined to bury them, the only way to win is to dig deep—both inside and out—to uncover the truth and expose evil.

A big break turns into Tori’s worst nightmare…


Tori Radnor’s future is looking brighter after scoring a big break with her start-up venture. Mega-successful Aiden Miller has agreed to help. Although her job isn’t the only thing drawing Tori to her new partner, she is determined to keep it strictly business. She owes that to her teenager, after letting her almost-ex nearly destroy them.

Aiden is facing a cross-roads personally and professionally when the police discover his Poconos store is part of a well-established drug ring.

Inexplicably, as his desire for the kind-hearted social worker increases, so does the danger—leaving protective Aiden between a rock and a hard place.

If she can’t stay hidden, she must run—again.

While tracing his missing teenage sister, Detective Mitch Saunders uncovers a disturbing link to one of his old, and very cold, cases: Laura Macnamara, a young woman who walked out her backdoor and simply disappeared. Runaway, or victim? He never knew, but is about to find out. Because Laura—a sexy, grown woman now known as Charlie Hart—holds the key to his sister's safety.

Except Charlie refuses to help him. Between her carefully guarded secrets and well-founded fears, too much is at stake to look back. Nor can she consider a future with Mitch—a man who will expose her to evil, if that’s what it takes to bring his sister home. He leaves Charlie no choice but to run—again. Or is it already too late?
