Rachel de Luca’s uncanny sense of perception is the key to her success as a self-help celebrity. Even before she regained her sight, she had a gift for seeing people’s most carefully hidden secrets. But the secret she shares with Detective Mason Brown is one she has promised to keep. As for Mason, he sees Rachel more clearly than she’d like to admit.
After a single night of adrenaline-fueled passion, they have agreed to keep their distance—until a string of murders brings them together again. Mason thinks that he can protect everyone he loves, including Rachel, by taking them to a winter hideaway, but danger follows them up the mountain.
As guests disappear from the snowbound resort, the race to find the murderer intensifies. Rachel knows she’s a target. Will acknowledging her feelings for Mason destroy her—or save them both and stop a killer?
About Let the Dead Sleep by Heather Graham:
An Object of Desire? Or of Fear?
It was stolen from a New Orleans grave—the centuries-old bust of an evil man, a demonic man. It’s an object desired by collectors and by those with wickedness in their hearts.
One day, its current owner shows up at Danni Cafferty’s antiques shop on Royal Street, the shop she inherited from her father. But before Danni can buy the statue, it disappears and the owner is found dead….
Michael Quinn, former cop and now private investigator, is determined to find and destroy this object with its long history of evil and even longer trail of death. He and Danni are drawn together in their search for the missing statue, following it through sultry New Orleans nights to hidden places in the French Quarter and secret ceremonies on abandoned plantations.
But Cafferty and Quinn know that their story won’t end when this case is closed and the dead rest in peace once again.
About Bridal Jeopardy by Rebecca York (part of the Mindbenders series):
P.I. Craig Branson finds himself falling for a woman he should be staying far away from
Love at first sight can’t begin to describe the attraction detective Craig Branson feels when he locks eyes with gorgeous Stephanie Swift. It’s more powerful, passionate and deeply emotional than anything he’s ever felt. But the P.I. is in New Orleans to track down a killer…not to have a fling.
Still, he can’t resist the intense sexual pull he feels the first time he kisses Stephanie. He’ll risk everything to rescue her from her rich, possessive fiancé. Taking her on the run, Craig faces danger from two relentless pursuers—one who would expose the secret of their bond…and one who would keep him from his soul mate forever.
