In the latest novel from the New York Times bestselling author of Hope Burns, a woman discovers that the man she least expects is exactly what she needs… High school math teacher Chelsea Gardner has the perfect plan. She’s tired of dating all the wrong men, and after years of frustration, she’s developed a foolproof list of requirements for finding “The One.” Bar owner Sebastian “Bash” Palmer finds Chelsea beautiful, smart and fun, but he thinks her list is ridiculous and unnecessary. Intent on proving Chelsea is looking for love in all the wrong ways, he offers to help her find the “perfect” man. Chelsea knows Bash isn’t the right guy for her—he barely meets one of her criteria—but there’s something about the charismatic man that has her yearning for things that are most definitely not list approved. Because sometimes, a relationship that looks totally wrong on paper can turn out incredibly right…

Fear is his favorite medium FBI agent Karen Younger’s worst nightmare just came true. A vicious serial killer from a cold case has struck again—his crimes spanning two different continents, eight years apart. But he’s only getting started, and with each young woman brutally beaten to death across San Carlos, California, he’s sending someone a message. Glenda Lindstrom is facing a nightmare of her own. Her abusive ex-husband, Ralph Beringer, is back in town—repeatedly calling, stalking her kids, breaking into their home. He doesn’t want a reunion, he wants revenge. Beringer has never forgiven Glenda for taking their son away and remarrying. But she can’t convince anyone that the man terrorizing her is capable of far worse than misdemeanors. Beringer is rapidly losing control over his murderous impulses, and he has Glenda and her family exactly where he needs them to complete his grisly scheme. With only a handful of clues and gritty instinct, Agent Younger is running out of time to solve the case before a madman’s rage erupts again.

Dylan "Books" Griffith isn't the first soldier to lose friends in Afghanistan. Or the first to be sent home wounded. Nor is he the first to find it hard to find his way in the civilian world, despite his short time of deployment. But when alcohol, drugs, and sex can't wallpaper over his deepest wounds, Dylan embarks on a quest to save himself and search for deeper meaning-by way of a vision-quest trip by motorcycle across the Southwest to the Hopi tribal home of a fallen comrade. What he finds there astonishes him-but who and what he encounters along the way stirs his soul in equal measure. DYLAN'S DIVIDE is a story with familiar themes, but a wholly unique story, infused with the heat of passion and the heart of an underdog-and a hope that burns brighter than the high-noon highways of the Southwest.
