Eyes of Stone

"Eyes of Stone (Barresi Book 1)" by Lux Miller

| Website | Facebook | Twitter | The night Luca Barresi stormed into my life, everything changed. The crowned prince of the Mafia’s New Orleans empire rained hellfire down on the jazz club I called home. I wanted to feel something for the brooding playboy, but the man’s a monster. Sure, he’s panty-melting hot, but his heart is frozen ice. He murdered my boss in cold blood, then turned on me because I saw too much. When he caught me snooping, he offered me an impossible choice. The sweet freedom of death or the captivity of life in servitude to the mob pretending to be his girlfriend to protect his image. I guess you can figure out which option I chose. I don’t want to be another notch on his bedpost, despite the spark that sizzles between us every time we put on another act of our little game. Part of me knows better than to tempt fate, but part of me is determined to see just how dangerous he can be.

Speeding down the highway on the way to work, her two little girls sleeping in the back seat, medical resident Claire Rawlings doesn't have time for the nausea overtaking her. But as the world tilts sideways, she pulls into a gas station, runs to the bathroom, and passes out. When she wakes up minutes later, her car―and her daughters―are gone. The police have no leads, and the weight of guilt presses down on Claire as each hour passes with no trace of her girls. All she has to hold on to are her strained marriage, a potentially unreliable witness who emerges days later, and the desperate but unquenchable belief that her daughters are out there somewhere. As hopeful and uplifting as it is devastating, Little Lovely Things is the story of a family shattered by unthinkable tragedy, and the unexpected intersection of heartbreak and hope.

Wicked Girl

"Wicked Girl: Psychological Crime Thriller" by  I. V. Olokita

"Even if a dog goes mad, it will always be a dog." So said a small white sign hung on a wall in Birmingham Mental Institution Ward number 3. It had a black frame, written in a hand they were all well acquainted with. The letters had faded over time. In the end, among all the calligraphy in the frame, one could detect a blurred signature. It was mine. John Wilcox is a young idler who loathes people except for young women. His destiny brought him near Birmingham Mental Institution during an earthquake. At that time Wilcox saves Elsie, an eccentric, half-deranged teenager. John pulls out every manipulation at his disposal to convince her that he is the right person to help her recover. Grey, Alessi's father, goes on a quest for his lost daughter. She, too, like her mother, was trying to escape him. And so, began the tragic story between prey, and it's supposed predator.
