Melanie Thorpe believes that love and marriage are fine for other people-people who don't have the kind of baggage to carry around that she does. Over the years, she has done what was necessary to protect herself, and she never takes anyone at face value. Her choices make it difficult to let anyone get close but she has a handful of people she counts as good friends. As she watches some of those friends fall in love and get married, Melanie finds herself wondering if it might be worth taking a chance. Is there a way to have a relationship without ever revealing the past that has shaped the way she lives her life now? Tyler Harris has been married before, but when his wife divorced him after an explosion left him with a double amputation below the knee, he wasn't all too keen to rush into another relationship. Six years later, his life is full with his involvement at his church, his job and his large group of friends. He's been happy with the many friendships he has-including one with Melanie Thorpe-but when he begins to feel more for her, Tyler wonders if it's worth risking a friendship for the possibility of love. If Melanie was able to trust a man, it would be someone like Tyler. She has long admired him, but lately-with love blossoming all around her-she's starting to feel things for him she never thought she'd feel for any man. But can she trust him enough to share about her past? When a tragic event brings secrets to light, Tyler struggles to understand Melanie's trust issues even as he tries to encourage her to not only trust him but God as well. Will she take a chance on Tyler? Or will her determination to keep herself safe send him away?

Justin Morrell cares about only two things in his life: his job at BlackThorpe Security and his sister, Beth, and her family. After a family tragedy a decade earlier forced Justin to leave the military career he'd planned on in order to care for his thirteen-year-old sister, he has taken his role as her guardian seriously. So when bad news comes regarding his niece, Justin is determined to do what he can to fix the problem. Though it seems he can't change the events that are unfolding, he's determined to make sure that the woman that's showed up in Beth's life to help her is really on the up and up. There's just something about Alana Jensen and her son that doesn't add up, and Justin plans to use his resources at BlackThorpe to figure out why that is and then take the steps necessary to protect his family. It's been just over two years since Alana Jensen and her son fled an abusive home in Florida. For the past several months, Alana has been feeling that she and Caden may have finally found their new home. Her passion to help people who are dealing with a child newly diagnosed with hearing loss has brought them into contact with Beth and Daniel Olson and their daughter, Genevieve. Though they must live frugally, Alana finds that for the first time in her life, she feels happy and safe. She isn't keen to let people get close enough to know about her past and the scars she wears, but she finds herself unable to turn away the friendship that Beth and her husband offer to her. Everything would have been fine if Beth's brother hadn't shown up looking an awful lot like her ex and determined to paint her as a threat to his family. Justin's busy work schedule has left little room for a relationship with anyone but his family. That has worked fine until the day he finds that the walls he's kept around his heart have crumbled. Will he be able to make the changes necessary to let more people into his life, or will the job he's devoted his life to come out on top? Alana never planned to allow another man close--particularly one who shared the muscled physique of her ex. But when her son is determined that Justin Morrell is his new hero, she has to decide if she is willing to open herself up again. Will she be able to finally let go of her past and the hurts she's carried for so long and trust that God's will for her life just might include another shot at finding love?

But when Danny's uncle shows up on her doorstep with the news that Danny is the heir to his now-deceased father's fortune, Brooke finds her control over her and Danny's life slipping away. Lucas Hamilton isn't surprised his brother never acknowledged his son. A child didn't fit into the lifestyle he'd chosen. But now that Lucas knows about Danny, he plans to take care of him like his brother should have. What he hadn't foreseen was the boy's mother making it clear they didn't want-or need-his help. Over the years, Lucas has gotten used to living in the shadow of his larger-than-life, adventurous twin brother, but now he finds himself wanting to step out of that shadow to show Brooke that she can count on him. Determined not to let Lucas have the chance to prove her theory on men correct, Brooke resists the temptation to rely on him for anything. However when she finds more than her theory at risk, will Brooke realize that a change of heart may bring her more than just peace? Will Lucas be able to convince her that sharing responsibility doesn't mean giving up control? And that she can trust him-not just with Danny but with her heart as well?

Not only are Pryor’s characters and fathomlessly dark love stories fabulous, but her continual world building of Blackthorn blows me away. Blood Roses is a highly recommended read! Gravetells.com ‘It pulls no punches, its heroes are on the edge, and its sex scenes are off the charts.'

After reading the first two books of the Blackthorn series I am definitely on the Lindsay Pryor fan bandwagon!’ VampireRomanceBooks.com ‘This is a deliciously dark book. This isn't your typical happily ever after story, and I think that's what drew me to the series in the first place. This is the second book I've read, and I honestly think it's better than the first.’ RomFan Reviews

Get swept away again by the extravagant world in this dazzling Victorian romance by New York Times bestselling author Kat Martin. Unrepentant rake Rule Dewar is living the good life when a most surprising event occurs—he falls in love with his wife. After their strategic “marriage of commerce” three years ago, Rule quite forgot about Violet Griffin, the teenage heiress to a Boston manufacturing fortune. He simply spoke his vows, took over her father’s business and returned to England to resume his usual pursuits: high-priced wine, high-stakes gambling and highborn women. Yet when Violet, now a sophisticated woman, unexpectedly appears at Rule’s London town house, husbandly duties no longer seem so odious--he can’t wait to take his stunning bride to their marriage bed. Violet, however, is not so easily led: she has her own ideas and is seeking an annulment to marry another. But as Rule attempts to win her over, someone else is determined to frame him for murder and keep him out of the way for good... Originally published in 2010
