DCI Nelson has been receiving threatening letters telling him to 'go to the stone circle and rescue the innocent who is buried there'. He is shaken, not only because children are very much on his mind, with Michelle's baby due to be born, but because although the letters are anonymous, they are somehow familiar. They read like the letters that first drew him into the case of The Crossing Places, and to Ruth. But the author of those letters is dead....

I love Elly’s Ruth and Nelson books. She hasn’t disappointed me with this next book in the series. The story line is intriguing when characters emerge from the past and again we are lead along a twisting turning story, keeping the reader gripped. I didn’t want to put the book down.

After hitting her head, Lucy Sparks awakens in the hospital to a shocking revelation: the man she’s known and loved for years - the man she recently married - is not actually her husband. In fact, they haven’t even spoken since their breakup four years earlier. The happily-ever-after she remembers in vivid detail - right down to the dress she wore to their wedding - is only one example of what her doctors call a false memory: recollections Lucy’s mind made up to fill in the blanks from the coma.

Their love affair began intensely and passionately. Princess Adeline and Josh Jameson knew any future together was impossible - her status as a princess and his standing as a Hollywood heartthrob dictated that. But the heights of pleasure they could take each other to were wildly unanticipated by them both. But then a cruel turn of events rips their worlds apart, and Adeline is more bound than ever by the protocol and expectations her title commands.

Her father is The King of England. She is The Controversial Princess. Regarded as down to earth by the press and rebellious by The King, Princess Adeline refuses to bow to the royal expectations her title carries. She knows better than anyone that the united front of the royal family is nothing but smoke and mirrors - lies and secrets masked by power and privilege. She wants no part of it, and she will never surrender to The King's demand to marry a man she does not love. But despite Adeline's determination to retain her free will, she remains deeply unfulfilled, feeling caged.

Thank you to Jodie Ellen Malpas for another gripping story.

The book has it all a love story with twists and turns, politics of a family living by strict rules a Princess who doesn’t want to live by those rules. Ends with a cliff hanger string it up for the next book!

A new standalone novel from Jodi Ellen Malpas, the best-selling author of the This Man and One Night trilogies. Annie has never experienced the 'spark' with a guy - the kind of instant chemistry that steals your breath and blindsides you completely. Until a night out with friends brings her face to face with the wickedly sexy and mysterious Jack. It's not just a spark that ignites between them. It's an explosion. Jack promises to consume Annie, and he fully delivers on that promise.

I thought I had control. I was so, so wrong.... I don't need a relationship. I have Hux, a decadent club where I quench whatever raw desire I choose. I take pleasure and I give it - no strings attached. So when Raya Rivers comes in asking for someone cold, emotionless, and filthy...well, no man ever takes his wicked pleasure quite the way I do. Only Raya is different. Vulnerable. And carrying some deep sorrow that gets past all my carefully constructed walls and inexplicably makes me care.

In this gripping thriller, an ex-agent on the run from her former employers must take one more case to clear her name and save her life. She used to work for the US government, but very few people ever knew that. An expert in her field, she was one of the darkest secrets of an agency so clandestine it doesn't even have a name. And when they decided she was a liability, they came for her without warning. Now she rarely stays in the same place or uses the same name for long.

At first I thought this is not the book for me, however, i kept listening and was soon hooked the book has lots of twists and turns, keeping me gripped! I really love the storyline. Totally different again from the authors other books. I highly recommend you get this book. The way it ends I wonder if there is going to be another follow up, I really hope so.
