The job would be cool if it weren't for the dorky pink bodysuits, his jerky boss, and attacks from joy-sucking shadowy entities called Suicides.
When Fallon discovers a dangerous new breed of Suicide, a terrific battle erupts. To save the girl he's falling for — oh, and prevent total world domination — Fallon uses a secret weapon to kick some serious Suicide butt.

For what foolish Saxon lord has any hope against an army of seasoned Norman knights? But the great warrior is infor a shock: His adversary is no crusty, aging nobleman but an exquisite princess who looks as fragile as a flower-and yet fights with a will as steely as the sword she wields. Suddenly Luc is waging a dangerous new war-aimed at the defenses of a fierce Saxon beauty who threatens to conquer his warrior's heart. 
Ceara is a ferocious warrior and proud daughter to the Saxon lord of Wolfridge, and any man would be a fool to challenge her. So how could she ever surrender to this hulking mercenary sent by the Norman bastard who has already taken so much? Ceara has made a sacred vow to fight at all costs, never yielding to her enemy. But that was before she met her match in Luc, the one man who could rival the intensity of her courage-and the heat of her passion.

New York Times bestselling author Julie Garwood delivers a contemporary romance that's pulse-pounding in every sense of the word. 

Dr. Ellie Sullivan has just completed her residency at a large urban hospital. While jogging in a park nearby, she witnesses the shooting of an FBI agent in pursuit of wanted criminals, a couple identified as the Landrys. The only person to see the shooter's face, Ellie is suddenly at the center of a criminal investigation. 

Agent Max Daniels takes over the Landry case. A no-nonsense lawman, he's definitely not the ideal man that Ellie has always imagined, yet she's attracted to him in a way she can't explain. 

Ellie heads home to Winston Falls, South Carolina, to attend her sister's wedding. Shortly after she arrives, though, she receives a surprise visitor: Max Daniels. The Landrys have been captured, and she'll be called to testify. But they've been captured before, and each time the witnesses are scared into silence-or disappear before they can take the stand. Max vows to be Ellie's shadow until the trial, and it isn't long before sparks fly.
