Meet Roxanne St. Claire's "bullet catcher"—bodyguard Donovan Rush—who may have met his match in the sexually charged "Diamond Drop." Debut author William Simon shows us what happens when the granddaughter of the president of the United States is kidnapped. And Lee Child's pitch-perfect "I Heard a Romantic Story" puts a whole new spin on Love Is Murder.
Bodyguards, vigilantes, stalkers, serial killers, women (and men!) in jeopardy, cops, thieves, P.I.s, killers—these all-new stories will keep you thrilled and chilled late into the night.

Dianna Love – Deadly Fixation
Devon Fortier eased forward through pitch-black passages where death waited for foolish humans in Savannah, Georgia’s forgotten underground.
He was neither foolish nor human.
Deep voices growled up ahead in what had once been a rum cellar. The argument echoed off the packed-dirt walls that seeped water. Dank odors of rot, urine and unearthly creatures clogged every breath Devon inhaled.

New York Times bestseller Dianna Love spent her early years dangling over a hundred feet in the air to create unusual marketing projects for Fortune 500 companies. Now she’s released her energetic muse on writing high-octane thrillers and urban fantasy. Her first book won the prestigious RITA Award (as Dianna Love Snell) and she now coauthors with number one New York Times bestseller Sherrilyn Kenyon. The latest Kenyon-Love collaboration has resulted in the Belador urban fantasy series that debuted on the New York Times, USA TODAY, Publishers Weekly, and Walmart bestseller lists in 2010 with Blood Trinity. The next Belador novel, Atlerant, was released September 2011 and Cathbad’s Curse will be out September 2012. When not speaking at national and international events throughout the year, Dianna lives in the metro Atlanta area with her motorcycle-instructor husband. For more on Dianna visit
