Falling in Love could hurt one’s soul. Moving from Texas to Northern Virginia, Maggie finds herself lost, broke and alone after her fiancé dumped her. But with a soft landing at Rose Gardens Apartments, she finds a new job, new friends and “a calling”. Taking the job as the new property manager, she renovates not just the apartments, but the building, the landscaping and her life! She finds a new family with the residents of the apartment complex. She finds…contentment. Enter…Oliver. To the casual observer, he appears to be a guy down on his luck. Exactly the kind of person Maggie needs to help. But Oliver is so much more…and she can’t resist tempting the fates and…falling in love. But Oliver isn’t who he appears to be. And his lies hurt more than they should! Oliver is stunned by the beautiful woman as she “helps” him by offering him a place to live. It’s just a beaten up apartment, completely different than the penthouse where he normally sleeps at night. But there’s something about Maggie, an energy and inner beauty that he can’t turn away from. Nor can he tell her the truth about his identity or his plans for her precious neighborhood. He’s not giving up though! Oliver has found the woman he wants to spend the rest of his life with. And he won’t let Maggie push him away. He could fix this! He had to!

For fans of the dark family secrets of We Were Liars and the page-turning suspense of The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer, The Breathless is a haunting tale of deeply buried secrets, forbidden love, and how far some will go to bring back what’s long dead. No one knows what really happened on the beach where Roxanne Cole’s body was found, but her boyfriend, Cage, took off that night and hasn’t been seen since. Until now. One year—almost to the day—from Ro’s death, when he knocks on the door of Blue Gate Manor and asks where she is. Cage has no memory of the past twelve months. According to him, Ro was alive only the day before. Ro’s sister Mae wouldn’t believe him, except that something’s not right. Nothing’s been right in the house since Ro died. And then Mae finds the little green book. The one hidden in Ro’s room. It’s filled with secrets—dangerous secrets—about her family, and about Ro. And if what it says is true, then maybe, just maybe, Ro isn’t lost forever. And maybe there are secrets so dark, they should never see the light of day. “[The Breathless] is full of secrets, dark magic, and satisfying twists and turns.”—Booklist “Bringing together horror, romance, and tragedy in one creepy old house,…[The Breathless] will leave readers heartbroken and haunted.”—The Bulletin “An absorbing and romantic Gothic mystery that will haunt you long after the final page.”—Kara Thomas, author of The Darkest Corners and Little Monsters “Evocative and mysterious; The Breathless is rich with layered secrets and intertwined stories of love and loss.”—Sarah Tomp, author of My Best Everything. “The Breathless is part magic-tinged mystery, part Southern Gothic, and part romance that chills and thrills you all at once. I couldn't put it down!”—Tara Hudson, author of the Hereafter trilogy “This sultry Southern tale is drenched in atmosphere! A world of secrets, mysterious family heirlooms, and forbidden love. Get ready to be bewitched by a story where not only does the past live on . . . the dead do, too!”—Adriana Mather, New York Times bestselling author of How to Hang a Witch

. . . But I do know that I can love like it’s my first language. And I’ll turn your heart into a kick drum before you’ve got a chance to turn around and rethink me. And I know that I’ve made mistakes as often as the government has lied to people. But I hold no regrets. I don’t wear that skin any longer. It doesn’t fit me anymore and I’m proud of that.’’

From the bestselling author of We're All in This Together comes a novel about family, friendship, fame, and the cost of living in the public eye -- because when everyone suddenly knows your name, it's easy to forget who you really are. "The first time they met, Mags saved Ava's life. The second time they met, Ava saved Mags's." Ava Hart is the most reluctant cast member of a reality TV show based on her big city family's (mostly staged) efforts to run a B&B in small-town Nova Scotia. Every family has its problems, but Ava has grown up seeing her family's every up and down broadcast on national television, after the show becomes an unexpected success for reasons that will take a heavy toll on the Harts. Mags Kovach is the charismatic lead singer of a struggling Halifax rock band hoping to be the Next Big Thing. For years she's managed to contain her demons and navigate the uglier aspects of being a woman in the music world, but after a devastating loss, she turns her anger on the only person she can: herself. As their private tragedies continue to set social media and tabloid headlines on fire, their every move subjected to an endless stream of public commentary, it will be their unexpected friendship that will save them. They will push back against the roles they've been forced to play, and take back control of something they thought they'd lost forever -- the right to their own stories.

When accountant Chloe and children’s book author Will Turner were set up on a blind date, Chloe’s friend assured her she’d love Will and Will’s friend assured him he’d get laid. They wound up at a headache-inducing opera, walked out at the first intermission and both agreed their blind date was a bad idea. Will drove Chloe home to her Back Bay Boston apartment, where they said good-bye and resolved never to see each other again. But then Chloe discovered that her most treasured possession had been stolen while she’d been at the opera with Will. In fact, her flaky, selfish brother had filched it and fled to his home in Minnesota. Chloe is determined to get it back. Only problem: her car is in the shop. Only other problem: she’s deathly afraid of flying. Will’s dilapidated old van works. And even if he and Chloe aren’t suited, she’s got the sexiest legs he’s ever seen. What the hell—he’ll drive her to Minnesota. A lot can happen on a fifteen-hundred-mile drive.

Ursula Blanchard, loyal lady of the Queen's Presence Chamber and gifted sleuth, is at home amid the glittering complexities of the royal court. Now, Ursula has a new part to play in the service of her Queen -- a role that exposes her to hidden dangers in the famed university town of Cambridge. Assigned as a harbinger for the Queen's upcoming Summer Progress to Cambridge, Ursula is placed in charge of not only Her Majesty's comfort, but also her safety. For Ursula, that means undertaking menial employment in a pie shop to investigate rumored political perils behind a swashbuckling student playlet conceived at the University to entertain the Queen. Even in such a bastion of Protestant power and scholarly pursuits as Cambridge, protecting the Queen is not purely academic. When a handsome young student's all-too-conveniently timed death rouses her suspicions, Ursula applies her superior powers of observation to untangling a mystifying jumble of oddities, coincidences, secrets, and ciphers that surround her...and discovers ominous signs of treason.

The Doctor of Pimlico (1919) is a mystery novel by Anglo-French writer William Le Queux. Published at the height of Le Queux’s career as a leading author of popular thrillers, The Doctor of Pimlico is a story of mystery, idolization, and international crime. Using his own research and experience as a journalist and adventurer, Le Queux crafts an accessible, entertaining tale for readers in search of a literary escape. Known for his works of fiction and nonfiction on the possibility of Germany invading Britain—a paranoia common in the early twentieth century—William Le Queux also wrote dozens of thrillers and adventure novels for a dedicated public audience. Although critical acclaim eluded him, popular success made him one of England’s bestselling writers. In The Doctor of Pimlico, a writer befriends a retired General whose legendary career consisted of expeditions in Egypt, Afghanistan, Burma, and France. Walter Fetherston, an internationally renowned mystery novelist with a reputation for cosmopolitan excess, meets and immediately falls in love with General Sir Hugh Elcombe’s daughter, the beautiful Enid Orlebar. Hoping for marriage, Fetherston has his dreams disrupted when a newcomer to the General’s social circle proves to have a strange and nefarious influence on those around him. Dr. Weirmarsh, a surgeon based in London, possesses a hypnotic personality and seems to hold considerable sway over the lives of the General and Enid. Looking for answers, Fetherston uses his skill as a mystery writer to play the part of the detective, traveling across Europe in an effort to uncover the doctor’s murky past. What he finds is more shocking, and much more extensive, than he could ever have imagined. With a beautifully designed cover and professionally typeset manuscript, this edition of William Le Queux’s The Doctor of Pimlico is a classic mystery novel reimagined for modern readers.

The boy next door has always made her breathless. Joey… I wouldn’t say I ran away exactly—twenty-two is too old for that. I’d call it self-preservation. I have one objective: protect my heart from the boy next door who has no clue I’ve loved him my whole life, even with a front row seat to his revolving bedroom door. My escape plan almost worked. Except I left one thing behind. Logan Carter hijacked my heart, and now it’s time to get it back. This time for good. Logan… I wouldn’t say I’ve been lying this whole time—not about everything. Not about how much I miss my best friend, and definitely not about how pissed I am that she left with hardly a goodbye. She’s the last person I ever expected to ghost me, and her absence left a gaping hole in my chest. When Joey Grayson steps off that bus, I know I’ll do anything to keep her home, and that means finding out the truth. But I’m not sure how to tell her my truths when I’m living so many lies. Breathless is a standalone companion novel to the USA Today bestsellers Shameless and Reckless. Each book features a different couple.

A young woman’s secret may tear her rural Minnesota community apart, in this “emotional tale of star-crossed love, vengeance and regret” (Publishers Weekly). In the tumultuous days after World War I, Herman Richter returns from the front to find his only sister, Liesel, allied with Lester Sutter, the "slow" son of a rival clan who spends his days “Historical fiction with a slight touch of magical realism, The Turtle Catcher is a moving portrait of difficult times and vividly realized characters” (Booklist) from “the most promising Minnesota writer in a generation” (Minneapolis Star Tribune). In the tumultuous days after World War I, Herman Richter returns from the front to find his only sister, Liesel, allied with Lester Sutter, the “slow” son of a rival clan who spends his days expertly trapping lake turtles. Liesel has sought Lester’s friendship in the wake of her parents’ deaths and in the shadow of her own dark secret. But what begins as yearning for a human touch quickly unwinds into a shocking, suspenseful tragedy that will haunt the rural town of New Germany, Minnesota, for generations. Woven into this “great, rattling, breathless mystery” are the intense, illuminating experiences of German immigrants in America during the war and the terrible choices they were forced to make in service of their new country or in honor of the old (NPR’s Weekend Edition). The Turtle Catcher is a lyrical, vibrant, beautifully wrought look at a fascinating piece of American history—and the echoing dangers of family secrets. “One mark of a good book is that it keeps you up all night reading it. But if it’s nearly dawn and the book is closed and you still can’t sleep, the book’s either brilliant or scary as hell. Nicole Helget’s first novel, ‘The Turtle Catcher,’ is both.” —MinnPost

THE OLDEST and strongest emotion of mankind is fear, and the oldest and strongest kind of fear is fear of the unknown. These facts few psychologists will dispute, and their admitted truth must establish for all time the genuineness and dignity of the weirdly horrible tale as a literary form. Against it are discharged all the shafts of a materialistic sophistication which clings to frequently felt emotions and external events, and of a naïvely insipid idealism which deprecates the æsthetic motive and calls for a didactic literature to "uplift" the reader toward a suitable degree of smirking optimism. But in spite of all this opposition the weird tale has survived, developed, and attained remarkable heights of perfection; founded as it is on a profound and elementary principle whose appeal, if not always universal, must necessarily be poignant and permanent to minds of the requisite sensitiveness.
