An ex-MI6 agent is out to rescue a woman from his past who was kidnaped by the mob in this…thriller from the CWA Steel Dagger Award–winning author of Firefly. On a deserted road in Calabria, Greek aid worker Anastasia Cristakos is driving to visit one of the new refugee centers funded by billionaire Denis Hisami—whom she has recently married. She slows down to greet two African migrants she recognizes. Only too late does she realize they are not her friends. This is an ambush. Hours later, Anastasia wakes up on a container ship, powering eastwards across the Mediterranean. She’s been abducted as bait to get to her husband. Denis has explosive information that his Mafia enemies have already killed for—and would be willing to kill for again. To find and rescue his wife, Denis turns to former MI6 agent Paul Samson. There’s only one snag. Paul was, and probably still is, in love with Anastasia. “Porter handles every aspect of the complicated plot . . . with keen intelligence and compassion. Thriller readers looking for plenty of action, excellent writing, and credible, convincing characters will be rewarded.” —Publishers Weekly

We must protect them from themselves, just as much as we must protect ourselves.Imagine a world in which witchcraft is real. In which mothers hand down power to their daughters, power that is used harmlessly and peacefully. Then imagine that the US President is a populist demagogue who decides that all witches must be imprisoned for their own safety, as well as the safety of those around them - creating a world in which to be female is one step away from being criminal... As witches across the world are rounded up, one young woman discovers a power she did not know she had.

Tutto ciò che Marjorie Vanhorn desidera è rendere felici le persone con le sue crostate pluripremiate e farsi baciare dal…delizioso medico legale della città, Anderson Swift. La nemica di Marjorie è la nuova organizzatrice della fiera della contea, Eloise, che ricatta i concorrenti per ottenere le loro ricette vincenti. Eloise vuole a tal punto la ricetta della crostata di mele di Marjorie, da essere disposta a fare tutto il necessario per impedirle di vincere altri premi. Dopo essere stato rilasciato su cauzione, Vega scompare. Kelli e suo figlio Joey ora sono finalmente liberi dall'oppressione e dalle violenze del marito. Nessuno sente la mancanza di Vega, nemmeno i suoi genitori. Quando Vance, il fratello maggiore di Vega, esce di prigione, si dirige verso la casa di Marjorie dove sospetta di poter trovare il fratello... e magari un po' di divertimento. Marjorie, tuttavia, non ha alcuna intenzione di essere il divertimento di Vance.
