After losing her father and two older husbands in freak accidents, she discovers her business manager has absconded with her fortune. Afia refuses her godfather’s help and jumps at an unexpected job with Leeds Investigations. Jake Leeds can’t turn down the hefty secret retainer Afia’s godfather offers him to hire her. Quickly seeing beyond her wacky superstitions and sensationalized personal history, Jake realizes Afia is as generous as she is misunderstood. Will the sexy PI be the good luck charm that puts her on a winning streak? In Charmed, the princess is in danger. Lulu Ross champions nonviolence. Just her luck, she’s tiara-over-glass-slippers for a man who carries a gun: Colin Murphy. Too bad the sexy professional bodyguard is delusional. Who would want to hurt Princess Charming, a low-profile, goody-two-shoes who performs as a storybook character at children’s birthday parties? Surely the sexy gifts from a secret admirer are meant for her bombshell sister. Or are they? In Seduced, Sofia Marino is a kick-ass heroine. Her role on the cheesy TV sitcom Spy Girl has garnered her a male cult following, fan sites, and a hefty bank account, but faster than a director yells, “Action,” her life goes from Hollywood to Hollyweird. She wakes up in Arizona, disoriented and caked with blood. The last thing Joe Bogart, a burned-out FBI agent on his last undercover case, wants is more intrigue. The last thing he needs is Sofia Marino. Now he’s smack dab in the middle of a murder mystery and in danger of losing his heart. Sofie and Joe embark on a mission to save not only themselves but also their friends and family.

The delightful second installment in Alexander McCall Smith’s already hugely popular new detective series, The Sunday Philosophy Club, starring the irrepressibly curious Isabel Dalhousie — editor of the Journal of Applied Ethics — and her no-nonsense housekeeper, Grace. When Isabel’s niece, Cat, asks Isabel to run her delicatessen while she attends a wedding in Italy, Isabel meets a man with a most interesting problem. He recently had a heart transplant, and is suddenly plagued with memories of events that never happened to him. The situation appeals to Isabel as a philosophical question. Is the heart truly the seat of the soul? And it piques her insatiable curiosity: could the memories be connected with the donor’s demise? Grace, of course, thinks it is none of Isabel’s business. Add to the mix the lothario Cat brings home from the wedding in Italy, who, in accordance with all that Isabel knows about lotharios, shouldn’t be trusted . . . but goodness, he is charming. That makes two mysteries of the heart to be solved — just the thing for Isabel Dalhousie. From the Hardcover edition.

I gasped, or tried to. My mouth opened, but I couldn’t draw breath. His lips, pearly wet, parted and he blew into my mouth. My lungs expanded beneath his weight. When I exhaled he sucked my breath in and his weight turned from cold marble into warm living flesh. Since accepting a teaching position at remote Fairwick College in upstate New York, Callie McFay has experienced the same disturbingly sensual dream every night: A mist enters her bedroom, then takes the shape of a virile, seductive stranger who proceeds to ravish her in the most toe-curling, wholly satisfying ways possible. Perhaps these dreams are the result of her having written the bestselling book The Sex Lives of Demon Lovers. Callie’s lifelong passion is the intersection of lurid fairy tales and Gothic literature—which is why she’s found herself at Fairwick’s renowned folklore department, living in a once-stately Victorian house that, at first sight, seemed to call her name. But Callie soon realizes that her dreams are alarmingly real. She has a demon lover—an incubus—and he will seduce her, pleasure her, and eventually suck the very life from her. Then Callie makes another startling discovery: Her incubus is not the only mythical creature in Fairwick. As the tenured witches of the college and the resident fairies in the surrounding woods prepare to cast out the demon, Callie must accomplish something infinitely more difficult—banishing this supernatural lover from her heart. “Vivid and enchanting . . . Dark’s letter-perfect gothic style is a satisfying tribute to previous gothic novels, and the paranormal elements, including incubi, fae, vampires, and witches, make this a stellar romance.”—Booklist (Top 10 SF/Fantasy) “[Juliet] Dark develops a complex, detailed world where magic, reason, and gothic literature enjoyably intersect.”—Publishers Weekly From the Trade Paperback edition.
