View: 8186This omnibus edition includes the first three books in the Lacy Merrick thrillers. Don't miss out on the action-packed series readers call "believable and ripped from today's headlines." State of Denial (Book 1) FBI civilian data analyst, Lacy Merrick, manages the threat of terror every day. But when terror strikes home, she is faced with a new reality and a new enemy. When she crosses paths with Special Agent Will Caison after the tragic incident, Lacy begins to unravel a furtive plot to discredit not only her, but her husband and cyber security expert, Jay Merrick. The plot, she soon discovers, balances on the tip of a deeply embedded secret that has the potential to destroy a nation. Shadow Rising (Book 2) The groundwork had been laid and the justice they sought would soon arrive. At least, that was what they believed. But when FBI Agent Will Caison returns to Washington, vowing to help Lacy Merrick and Aaron Hunter once again, a disruption to their plan changes everything. First Target (Book 3) Lacy Merrick pulled at the thread of corruption and America has begun to pay the price. With the country in an economic freefall, a result of harsh US sanctions, civil unrest has exploded. To combat the possibility of further corporate and government deceit, an elite task force is put in place. Now, Lacy Merrick and her colleagues must find the money behind the Dalian Company—the Chinese-run global corporation at the heart of Lacy’s unexpected reality. With CIA Agent Trevor Axell, FBI Agent Will Caison, and cyber-hacker, Aaron Hunter, they must work covertly to expose the trail.

View: 1294Now that supernatural beings have seized control of the world, life has become a struggle for the humans who once held power. Witches, vampires, and werewolves determine the fate of every single human, but their moral compasses have long since been shattered. Rebels, free humans, and slaves all share dreams of hope, mercy, love, and more. But with their fate so uncertain, survival isn't enough... and they may have to sacrifice what is nearest and dearest to them if they want to change their lives.Bought, Ravel, and Recoil feature different characters whose lives begin to come together in Owned and Temper. ###BOUGHT:When he agreed to take the fall for his pack leader's failed attempts to help the Rebellion, Jace knew he wouldn't live long enough to regret it. However, instead of the noble end he envisioned for himself, the werewolf finds himself at the mercy of a witch and his depraved games. Though he clings to his conviction that he can withstand anything his new master can dish out, it isn't long before he realizes pride has no place in his life as the pet of the controlling Elias Ivers.RAVEL:For years, Reese has hidden away in his home, refusing to venture out where he might have to face what reminds him of all that he's lost. When Ashton, a human thief, breaks into his home one night, he doesn't have a choice but to face the harsh truths of the world he's turned his back on. He knows he supports the society monsters of myth and lore built upon the backs of humans through his silence, but the new leaders don't tolerate sympathizers.If a werewolf can't act against the status quo without facing severe consequences, a human with Ashton's cunning and experience circumventing supernatural predators certainly can't risk drawing their attention. Their chance encounter leaves them both shaken and questioning whether they are living life as they were intended... or if surviving is really living at all.RECOIL:Over the past decade, Khaz has watched as supernatural creatures like himself have turned the world into their own personal playground. Unlike the others, he didn't benefit from the Takeover, and every time he sells himself to keep a roof over his head, he's keenly aware of that fact. His landlord, a renowned slaver, offers him the chance to catch up on his rent by breaking a human.Groomed to fight, Noah has survived by giving himself over to his hatred of those who took everything away from humanity. When the werewolf can't break him, he's given to the vampire instead -- and he's sure this will be no different. The problem is that even the harsh lessons the Rebellion taught him couldn't prepare him for someone like Khaz... who always has an ace up his sleeve.###The Fate of the Fallen Series:1.
