For Lieutenant Eve Dallas of the NYPSD, the job is a useful reminder of what she has to be grateful for this season. Hosting Roarke's big Irish family for the holiday may be challenging, but it’s a joyful improvement on her own dark childhood. Other couples aren’t as lucky as Eve and Roarke. The Reinholds, for example, are lying on the floor of their Downing Street apartment, stabbed and bludgeoned almost beyond recognition. Those who knew them are stunned - and even more heartbroken by the overwhelming evidence that they were murdered by their own son.

Absolutely loved this one in the series. I teared up when she received the award and then again when she recieved her gift. starting these books from the beginning you grow to love the characters and become fully invested. How could you not love these books!

On one of the city's hottest nights, New York Police Lieutenant Eve Dallas is sent to Central Park - and into a hellish new investigation. The victim is found on the rocks, just above the still, dark water of The Lake in the park. Around her neck is a single red ribbon. Her hands are posed, as if in prayer. But it is the eyes - removed with such precision, as if done by the careful hand of a surgeon - that have Dallas most alarmed.

I will say this is one of my favorites in this series. I love how much closer it brings Dallas and Peabody together. I also love seeing another side of Eve being brought out. I have read these books in order and would ask anyone interested in this series to do the same. By reading them in order you know each of the characters and see how they deepen with each book. To pick them up in any order you will lose the character development.

Laine Tavish is an ordinary woman living an ordinary life in the small town of Angel's Gap, Maryland, as the proprietor of Remember When, an antique treasures and gift shop. At least, that's what everyone in Angel's Gap thinks. They have no idea that she used to be Elaine O'Hara, daughter of the notorious con man Big Jack O'Hara. Or that she grew up moving from place to place, one step ahead of the law.

Buy the two together it's well worth it. I love the Nora Roberts book and the love story that went with it. Then I love how it went to the future for Eve to solve. it really came full circle and it's good to see what happened to the characters of the past. If she hasn't already I would love to read more stories about Lane and Max. Loved it.

I think I LOVE these books way more than I do Ana's perspective or it just could be the narration. Zachery's narration for Ana and Christian are way better. I love hearing what he is thinking and I love to be able to hear what was said between him and his mother at the party. Simply put LOVE IT!

At exactly 7:30 p.m., Walter Pettibone arrived home to over a hundred friends and family shouting, "surprise!" It was his birthday. Although he had known about the planned event for weeks, the real surprise was yet to come. At 8:45 p.m., a woman with emerald eyes and red hair handed him a glass of champagne. One sip of birthday bubbly, and he was dead.

Dante had been courting his victim in cyberspace for weeks before meeting her in person. A few sips of wine and a few hours later, she was dead. The murder weapon: a rare, usually undetectable date-rape drug with a street value of a quarter million dollars. Detective Eve Dallas is playing and replaying the clues in her mind. The candlelight, the music, the rose petals strewn across the bed - a seduction meant for his benefit, not hers. He hadn't intended to kill her. But now that he has, he is left with only two choices: to either hole up in fear and guilt or start hunting again....

The books in this series so far is thought provoking as well has humorous and romantic. I love the character development. I suggest reading them in order so you have an understanding of the relational involvement of the characters. I'm currently on book 10 but had to add my 2 cents. I have loved each book tremendously and can't wait to see what happens next with Eve, Roark, Peabody, Mavis, Nadine, Mira and so on!!!!!!!

Saber Alexiares is no ordinary vampire. He is like a cruel, fire-breathing dragon. Reared in the bowels of the colony by Dark Ones, he has no conscience, no compassion, and no saving grace. Captured by the enemy, he is sentenced to execution by sunlight only to discover that his body will not burn - he isn't who he thought he was. He was stolen at birth. He was reared by the wrong house. And the sunlight isn't going to kill him because he does have a soul.
