A woman on the run collides with a danger more lethal than she feared in this Ghostwalker novel by #1 New York Times bestselling author Christine Feehan. Ghostwalker Kane Cannon is pure male-animalistic, sexual, protective, instinctive-and his past missions have prepared him for anything. But his newest assignment, to rescue hostages in Mexico, plunges him into a hot zone he never anticipated: the hiding place of Rose Patterson-fugitive, ex-lover, a fellow Ghostwalker pregnant with his child. Rose is in flight from the insidious experiments that still live in her dreams, and from the madman who´d do anything to take her child. Of all the Ghostwalkers enlisted to hunt her down, Kane is the only one she can trust. But as their passion reignites, the stakes are raised. Because Kane is now a wanted man as well. And together they´re about to face the most desperate challenge of all: staying together and staying alive.
In the new thriller from New York Times bestselling author Lisa Scottoline, Mary DiNunzio’s ruthless nemesis Nick Machiavelli is back...with a vengeance. When three men announce that they are suing the Rosato & DiNunzio law firm for reverse sex discrimination—claiming that they were not hired because they were men—Mary DiNunzio and Bennie Rosato are outraged. To make matters worse, their one male employee, John Foxman, intends to resign, claiming that there is some truth to this case. The plaintiffs’ lawyer is Nick Machiavelli, who has already lost to Mary once and is now back with a vengeance —determined not to not only win, but destroy the firm. It soon becomes clear that Machiavelli will do anything in his power to achieve his end…even after the case turns deadly. The stakes have never been higher for Mary and her associates as they try to keep Machiavelli at bay, solve a murder, and save the law firm they love…or they could lose everything they’ve worked for. Told with Scottoline´s trademark gift for twists, turns, heart, and humanity, this latest thriller asks the question: Is it better to be loved, or feared... Feared, the sixth entry in the acclaimed Rosato & DiNunzio series, expertly explores what happens when we are tempted to give in to our own inner darkness.

It is rare for an individual in history to have successfully made such a mark on their world that people are still talking about them centuries after their death. When you consider the number of people that have existed throughout the millennia that have wielded some kind of power, it takes a remarkable individual to stand out from the crowd. Nevertheless, one such individual did manage to achieve this near-impossible feat of attaining everlasting fame: Genghis Khan. This single person from the relative confines of Mongolia is credited with creating one of the most feared empires that ever existed. When you learn more about his story, the very fact that he achieved so much becomes even more remarkable than you may have at first thought. Genghis Khan was a leader that was ruthless in his aims and ambitions, a man who thought nothing of destroying everything in his path. His reputation of extreme brutality sent villagers running from their homes when they got even a hint that Genghis Khan was coming their way. But is that the entire story? Was he as bad as history has made him out to be? This was an individual who established an empire that survived for more than a century after his demise, and it did so to such an extent that it was the longest continual empire to have ever been created in the history of the world. A wonderful battlefield commander, a prime tactician, he had a need to conquer the world that shaped this man into a fearless leader that would ultimately go on to shape what we now know as the modern world. In his book entitled Genghis Khan: The Ruthless Legacy, Great Mongol Empire, and the Making of the Modern World author Cameron White deeply chronicles how Genghis Khan with fierce determination was able to rise from the ashes of the devastation of his early years to become one of the most remarkable and ruthless leaders of all time. 1.
