From Ilona Andrews, #1 New York Times bestselling author, the thrilling conclusion to her Hidden Legacy series, as Nevada and Rogan grapple with a power beyond even their imagination… Nevada Baylor can’t decide which is more frustrating—harnessing her truthseeker abilities or dealing with Connor “Mad” Rogan and their evolving relationship. Yes, the billionaire Prime is helping her navigate the complex magical world in which she’s become a crucial player—and sometimes a pawn—but she also has to deal with his ex-fiancée, whose husband has disappeared, and whose damsel-in-distress act is wearing very, very thin. Rogan faces his own challenges, too, as Nevada’s magical rank has made her a desirable match for other Primes. Controlling his immense powers is child’s play next to controlling his conflicting emotions. And now he and Nevada are confronted by a new threat within her own family. Can they face this together? Or is their world about to go up in smoke?

Πριν από δέκα χρόνια ο Όλεθρος ήρθε στον κόσμο. Εμφανίστηκε σαν μια εκτυφλωτική λάμψη στον ουρανό και χάρισε υπεράνθρωπες δυνάμεις σε μια πλειάδα καθημερινών ανθρώπων. Πλημμυρισμένος από φόβο και δέος, ο υπόλοιπος κόσμος άρχισε να αποκαλεί τους ανθρώπους αυτούς Επικούς. Οι Επικοί, όμως, δεν είναι φιλικά διακείμενοι προς την ανθρωπότητα. Μαζί με τις απίστευτες ικανότητές τους απέκτησαν και το πάθος της εξουσίας και η απόλυτη εξουσία προϋποθέτει τη συντριβή του ελεύθερου ανθρώπινου πνεύματος. Στις μέρες μας, στο σημείο όπου κάποτε βρισκόταν η πόλη του Σικάγο, ο πανίσχυρος Επικός που είναι γνωστός ως Ατσαλόκαρδος κυβερνά ως τύραννος, προικισμένος με απίστευτη φυσική δύναμη και την ικανότητα να ελέγχει τα στοιχεία της φύσης. Οι φήμες λένε πως οι σφαίρες δεν μπορούν να τον βλάψουν, πως καμιά λεπίδα δεν μπορεί να τον πληγώσει, πως η φωτιά δεν τον αγγίζει... Είναι άτρωτος, ανίκητος. Κανείς δεν τολμά να του αντισταθεί. Κανείς… εκτός από τους Τιμωρούς. Οι Τιμωροί είναι μια μυστηριώδης ομάδα απλών ανθρώπων που έχουν αφιερώσει τη ζωή τους στη μελέτη των Επικών. Σκοπός τους είναι να ανακαλύψουν τα αδύνατα σημεία τους και να καταφέρουν κάποτε να τους αφανίσουν. Ο νεαρός Ντέιβιντ θέλει όσο τίποτα στον κόσμο να γίνει μέλος των Τιμωρών. Λίγο μετά την άφιξή του στο Σικάγο, ο Ατσαλόκαρδος δολοφόνησε τον πατέρα του Ντέιβιντ. Όπως ακριβώς και οι Τιμωροί, ο Ντέιβιντ μελετά εδώ και χρόνια τους Επικούς, καταστρώνοντας σχέδια για την εξάλειψή τους. Το μεγάλο του όπλο στην προσπάθεια αυτή, όμως, δεν είναι κάποιο αντικείμενο αλλά μια ανάμνηση, που οι Τιμωροί έχουν ανάγκη για να εκπληρώσουν την αποστολή τους. Έχει δει τον Ατσαλόκαρδο να ματώνει. Κι η καρδιά του διψά για εκδίκηση.

He took her captive. She stole his heart. A rogue pirate. A beautiful Englishwoman. Who would win their battle on the high seas? "I came down here to terrorize you into submission. I did not expect such easy capitulation." "How dismaying for you. Should I put up a defiant front to assuage your disappointment?" "You're a cool one, Miss Angela. I'll give you that much." "Are you what they say you are, Captain Saber?" A slight smile tilted his mouth up at one corner. "And what do they say I am, Miss Angela? Murderer? I've killed men, though I can't say I've derived any satisfaction from it. Pirate? Quite true. Though at times, I've stolen things that belong to me, so I'm not quite certain what that does to my redoubtable reputation as a thief and scourge of the seven seas." He took a step closer, his voice lowering to a husky timbre that sent chills chasing down her spine. "That I am known as--let me see--a defiler of damsels? As for that reputation, I gladly plead . . ." His hand shifted, fingers tightening in her hair to draw her head back. "Guilty." Virginia Brown is the bestselling author of more than sixty novels including the bestselling Dixie Divas mystery series.

Lights! Camera! Murder! Trinket and the gang, beware! Hollywood descends on Holly Springs, and soon it's up to the Divas to keep the stars from falling like magnolia blooms in a trailer-park tornado. Someone doesn't want DARK SECRETS UNDER THE HOLLY to reach the big screen. He--or she--is willing to kill locals, movie stars, and maybe even Divas to stop it. Diva-sister Dixie Lee Forsythe wrote the juicy tell-all about a historic Mississippi town very much like Holly Springs, and a lot of townsfolk would be happy to strangle her. Bitty is in a blond lather over a gossipy story line about a philandering Senator who very much resembles her late husband. And even Trinket's a little miffed at Dixie Lee's oh-so-recognizable Trinket Truevine character, described as, "built like a girls' basketball coach--not necessarily a female one." Dixie Lee starts getting mysterious death threats, an actress brings being a diva to heights even Bitty can't match, and a production assistant is murdered. If Trinket, Bitty, and the Divas don't solve this case quick, Oscars season in Tinsel Town will be short a whole bunch of stars.

Genre: Fiction

Maybe Harley Jean Davidson should have finished college, but at the time it hadn't seemed nearly as important as it did now. She should have stayed in corporate banking. She should have settled down with Mr. Right instead of dallying with Mr. Right Now--irresistible Memphis detective Mike Morgan. It was time to put her shallow youth behind her. She was closing in on thirty, entering the halls of maturity, and proving that she has a talent for catching bad guys. Things could be worse. Much worse. Her job as a Memphis tour guide is about to get even stranger than usual. "Hey," she called, "last stop for all Elvi. This is it, sir. Sir?" He didn't respond, just remained in his seat on the bus, staring out the window. Maybe he'd gotten cold feet about the Elvis contest. With a sigh, Harley walked to the back. "Hey, buddy," she said when she reached his seat, "we're here. Time to go on stage and sing your heart out. Knock 'em dead." When he still didn't respond, Harley put a hand on his shoulder to give him a slight shake. He slumped forward, his head hit the back of the seat in front of him, and she jumped into the aisle. The hilt of a knife protruded from his back. She froze. This couldn't be happening. Not to him, not to her, again. She leaned closer, and the rusty smell of blood made her stomach lurch. Backing slowly away, she fumbled at her waist for the cell phone that she now kept tethered to her with a chain, and hit speed dial. The police dispatcher answered quickly. "Nine-one-one?" Harley said in a voice that sounded a lot calmer than she felt. "We have another dead Elvis." Will her talent (jinx?) for stumbling into crime scenes eighty-six her relationship with Mike? Was he working up to a break up or just still upset about the dead Elvis in her van? Only one way to find out. "So," she said when she put the heated plate of fried rice and egg rolls in front of him, "is this a break up?" He gave her a startled look. "What are you talking about?" "Me finding bodies. You not liking that. Us. Maybe we need to talk about it." "Yeah. Well. I'm not really good at that kind of conversation." "Me either." She sat down in the chair opposite him, and Sam immediately jumped up on the cushioned arm to sniff her plate. He purred. Little beggar. She gave him a piece of rice and he gave her a horrified look. Then he leaped down to cross to Morgan, who had chicken fried rice. Morgan obliged the cat with a piece of chicken, and then looked over at Harley. "Maybe we just need a break from each other. Just for a couple weeks or a month. Something like that. Give us time to think about . . . things." Her throat got tight, but she nodded casually. "I think you're right. I don't want you to feel like I'm jeopardizing your job, and lately I can't seem to stop tripping over bodies. I don't know what it is. Some kind of murder magnet, I guess." One corner of his mouth tucked into a wry smile. "Any chance you can get rid of it?" Virginia Brown is the author of more than fifty novels, most recently the bestselling Dixie Diva Mysteries and the acclaimed mystery/drama, Dark River Road.
