Fern Michaels
The fourth book in Fern Michaels bestselling Men of the Sisterhood series has all of
the action and drama her fans flock to. While the Men of the Sisterhood series is tied to
Michaels mega-popular and long-running Sisterhood series, it also stands on its own
and is a great entry point for new readers!

When the call comes, the Men of the Sisterhood drop everything to help their friends. This time its Cyrus, their four-legged
hound dog and unofficial mascot. While member Joe Espinosa is driving along an isolated country road with Cyrus in tow,
he catches a glimpse of movement in the woods bordering the road and notes Cyrus pawing desperately at the car window.
As soon as he pulls over to investigate, Cyrus bolts out the door and leads Joe to three children clustered together
bedraggled, silent, and scared out of their wits. As soon as he has brought the children to safety, Espinosa arranges an
urgent meeting.
Charles, Abner, Jack, Dennis, Harry, and the rest of the crew gather at BOLO headquarters to hear a shocking story that
confirms their worst suspicions. Many more children are still in danger. But in order to protect and avenge the victims,
the team must use more cunning than ever before. With so many vulnerable young lives at stake, one mistake would be
too many

The Duck Darley Mystery Series
Casey Barrett
Olympic swimmer Casey Barretts debut mystery novel is now available in mass market!
Writing what he knows, Barrett follows former competitive swimmer-turned-investigator
Duck Darley in a search for the missing sister of his former teammate. From the expensive
penthouses of the Upper East Side to the drug-addled studios of the East Village, secrets
and murder lurk just beneath the surface of New York City and its inhabitants.

Duck Darley should have been a winner. Once a competitive swimmer destined for Olympic gold, he drank away his gilded
youth and followed his fraudster fathers footsteps into prison. Barely scraping by as an unlicensed private investigator, Duck
now chases down cheating spouses for the same Manhattan elite who once viewed him as an equal, and drowning bitter
memories with whatever fills his glass.
Ducks lost glory days resurface when hes tasked with finding the teenaged sister of a former teammate turned Olympic
champion. Privileged Madeline McKay vanished over Labor Day weekend, leaving behind a too-perfect West Village
apartment and a promising athletic career of her own. Duck thinks hes hunting for a self-destructive runawayuntil
Madelines film student ex is savagely murdered, and the media spins her as the psycho who killed him.
As Duck searches for Madeline, hes plunged back into the dark underbelly of Olympic swimminga world rife with wild
lies and terrible violence. And he soon learns that no matter how hard he tries to escape his past, demons still lurk beneath
every surface

detective Joe Fowlers obsession. After fifteen months and nine victims, Harry Stork was identified as the Stickman and
Fowler shot him dead. The killings stopped. For a while.
Now, more bodies are turning up, each staked through the chest with a stick-figure drawing in the killers signature style.
Detective Leah TealJoe Fowlers daughter and Alvins sole detectivereceives a letter before each victim is found, just
like her late father did. The only people who knew about the letters were the cops on the taskforce back thenand the
killer himself.
Did Joe shoot the wrong man, or was one of the detectives he handpicked involved all along? As a single mother, Leah tries
to balance an increasingly disturbing case and a new relationship with caring for her childrenbright, perceptive Abe, and
teenaged Caroline, whos in the first flush of young love. But with each menacing communication, each gruesome discovery,
Leah realizes just how personal, and how devastating, the truth may be

during her incarceration. After making examples out of a few of the other inmates and putting the squeeze on her unit
Double Gs style, Starr recruits some new talent for a plan she intends to execute when she gets out. Queen Fem isnt happy
about all of the sudden attention on the Double Gs organization.
While her counterpart is being held in federal custody, Diamond Morgan steps up to the plate and holds the Double Gs
down in her absence. She focuses on keeping the organization strong while strategically trying to weed out the weak link.
She has been holding on to some valuable information ever since Starr was arrested, waiting for the right time to reveal it.
Its hard for Agent McCarthy to stay focused. The untimely and unfortunate tragedy with his daughters illness prevents him
from pursuing the Double Gs with his colleagues the way he knows he needs to. His slack is soon picked up by his fellow
agent, Reddick. After showing just how long their arms can reach, it seems the two agents and the rest of the bureau
combined may not be enough to take down the double Gs. The temperature continues to rise in Las Vegas, Nevada, as the
Double Gs turn up the heat the best way they know how: By putting the squeeze on the game and the players in it.

Raven loves the night life, chasing women and her next high. Men and women fall under her spell at first sight, but she
only has eyes for women. She accepts all shapes, sizes, and forms, for they are mere pawns in her quest to feed her
cravings. She has a little secret that could cause catastrophic results for anyone who encounters her, and it could
potentially lead her into a sticky situation, but her cravings are too powerful for her to resist. Will her little secret come
back with vengeance?
Valencia longs to be loved. All she has is her best friend, Sena, who is there for her through thick and thin. Going home to

someone else.
A lowkey assassin working for the notorious Mr. Jackson, Kidd wants nothing more than to be out of the business. He is
smitten with Valencias beauty and her caring ways. Just when he thinks he can get out of the game and pursue Valencia
wholeheartedly, Mr. Jackson calls in a favor that rocks his world to the core. Will his heart overrule his loyalty to his boss?
Johnna Brown currently lives in St. Louis, where she writes her brand of erotic love stories with a crazy twist.
