Love on the Rocks (Love on Tour Book 1)
“I am stranded in a diner in the middle of the desert at 3am. Things have not been going my way. Then two smoking hot rock stars walk in and offer me a ride.”
Dani Roberts is a humble park ranger with a dark relationship past. To avoid dealing with her future, she hits the road for a little adventure. In a lonely cafe in the middle of the nowhere Nevada she runs into two rock stars. Given the current lack of direction in her life, she accepts a ride on their tour bus.

Bentley (Hawthorne Brothers Romance)
Bentley Hawthorne and his brothers ruled our high school—and my fantasies—years ago. I thought I moved on from that crush when I graduated, but I couldn’t have been more wrong. There’s something dangerous about a Hawthorne boy, and the most dangerous one is Bentley.
He’s tattooed, has slicked-back hair, and can make any woman’s engine purr like a kitten. He’s wrong for me in every way, but sometimes it’s better to be wrong than right.
I’m just a shy, introverted girl trying to get through college who’s dreamed of being with Bentley Hawthorne since I first laid eyes on him in high school. I know I shouldn’t have these feelings, but when my car broke down on the side of the road late one night and he was there to save the day, how could I keep away?

My Favorite Mistake
Two secrets. One bet. Who will break first?
Taylor Caldwell can’t decide if she wants to kiss her new college roommate or punch him.
On the one hand, Hunter Zaccadelli is a handsome blue-eyed bundle of charm. On the other, he’s a tattooed, guitar-playing bad boy. Maybe that’s why Taylor’s afraid of falling in love with him, or anyone else. She doesn’t want to get burned, so she needs him gone before it’s too late.
Hunter himself has been burned before, but Taylor’s sexy laugh and refusal to let him get away with anything make her irresistible. Determined not to be kicked out of her life without a fight, Hunter proposes a bet: if she can convince him she either truly loves or hates him, he’ll leave the apartment—and leave her alone.
Desperately Seeking Epic
Paul James loved Clara Bateman.
Hating her would have been easier.
She was the past, and he was hell-bent on keeping her there.
Or so he thought…
Craigslist Ad: DESPERATELY SEEKING EPIC
You’re my father.
I don’t know much about you. I know your name is Paul James, you’re a thrill seeker, and once upon a time you did stunts and people called you ‘Epic.’
I’ve been told you don’t know about me. That it’s complicated.
But for me it’s simple.
Here’s the thing: I’m twelve years old…and I’m dying.
Upon a Dark Night (Peter Diamond Book 5)
A young woman is dumped, injured and unconscious, in a private hospital’s parking lot. She is an amnesiac with no memory prior to her discovery by hospital personnel. Detective Inspector Peter Diamond of the Bath homicide squad is unwilling to become involved. He has other, more important cases to solve: A woman has plunged to her death from the roof of a local landmark while half the young people of Bath partied below, and an elderly farmer has shot himself. Are these apparent suicides what they seem, or are there sinister forces at work? And might the amnesiac woman hold the key to both cases?
Starvation Lake: A Mystery
In the dead of a Michigan winter, pieces of a snowmobile wash up near the crumbling, small town of Starvation Lake—the same snowmobile that went down with Starvation’s legendary hockey coach years earlier. But everybody knows Coach Blackburn’s accident happened five miles away on a different lake. As rumors buzz about mysterious underground tunnels, the evidence from the snowmobile says one thing: murder.
Gus Carpenter, editor of the local newspaper, has recently returned to Starvation after a failed attempt to make it big at the Detroit Times. In his youth, Gus was the goalie who let a state championship get away, crushing Coach’s dreams and earning the town’s enmity. Now he’s investigating the murder of his former coach. But even more unsettling to Gus are the holes in the town’s past and the gnawing suspicion that those holes may conceal some dark and disturbing secrets—secrets that some of the people closest to him may have killed to keep.

In the electrifying Indian Killer, a national bestseller and New York Times Notable Book, Sherman Alexie delivers both a scintillating thriller and a searing parable of race, identity, and violence.
