Dillon was a slave trainer. He cruised the highways at night in his huge truck, looking for lone women at remote, deserted truck stops, taking them and training them for sale to a cartel running brothels in Mexico. He was good at his job, and it was not long before he came to the attention of Viktor, a very rich Russian who made his money by providing top-quality sex slaves.

I liked that it wasn't brutal,you were aware of what was happening to the girls but it was done tastefully and never overly dramatized. I would recommend this book for someone just starting to read about bondage.

Ex-CIA master assassin Court Gentry has always prided himself on his ability to disappear at will, to fly below the radar and exist in the shadows - to survive as the near-mythical Gray Man. But when he takes revenge upon a former employer who betrayed him, he exposes himself to something he’s never had to face before. A killer who is just like him. Code-named Dead Eye, Russell Whitlock is a graduate of the same ultra-secret Autonomous Asset Program that trained and once controlled Gentry.

I love the fact that Rose Harbor is a healing place. It seems that all who go there including Jo Marie are blessed. This can't be the end of the series I need to know that Mark makes it back. I need to know about the long time lodger.

Making a fresh beginning is not always easy. Leaving the past behind and bringing only the good stuff forward can be confusing . Stepping out of our selves to look back to see what we really want and don't want, standing up for ourselves finally is truly a rush.

If you've never read a Repairman Jack novel, this is the place to begin. It's 1990. A twenty-one-year-old named Jack has dropped out of college, leaving his old life behind to build a new one in New York City. Manhattan's rough edges are jagged enough to shred any unwary newcomer, but perhaps not one who is determined to stay off the grid, at any cost, in the busiest metropolis on earth. And to do so, he'll have to take jobs of a less than legal nature.

When Dr. John Taylor is found dead in a hotel room in his hometown, the local police find enough incriminating evidence to suspect foul play. Detective Samantha Adams, whose Palo Alto beat usually covers small-town crimes, is innocently thrown into a high-profile murder case that is more intricately intertwined than she could ever imagine. A renowned plastic surgeon, a respected family man, and an active community spokesman, Dr. Taylor was loved and admired. But, hidden from the public eye, he led a secret life - in fact, multiple lives.

The story opens in 1906 in New Rochelle, New York, at the home of an affluent American family. One lazy Sunday afternoon, the famous escape artist Harry Houdini swerves his car into a telephone pole outside their house. And almost magically, the line between fantasy and historical fact, between real and imaginary characters, disappears.
