New York Times bestselling Sisters of Suspense join forces for a gripping standalone novel about a clique of popular girls whose high school friendship is marked by a tragedy that continues to haunt them decades later. Jackson and Bush take the reader’s hand and twist them through this shocking tale of suspense. First they were five. Then they were four. Whose turn will it be next? At Bristol High they were an elite clique known as the Five Firsts: Amanda, Bailey, Carmen, Delta and Zora . . . ABCD & Z. They could have accepted their classmate, Emmy, as "E", but with her bookish disposition and her embarrassing status of scholarship student to boot, they rejected her and chose wealthy Zora instead. At a pre-graduation party just before the end of senior year, Lance Ventura, the hottest guy in school, falls down an embankment toward the river and is barely rescued in time to save his life. One of the Five Firsts, Carman, rushes to save him, but isn't so lucky. Her sudden death causes a community to mourn and rumors of foul play to swirl, but the tragedy is ruled an accident. Fast forward ten years and the classmates all meet again at the high school reunion. Some of them have had good fortune in their lives. Others, not so much. PRAISE FOR LISA JACKSON AND NANCY BUSH “Superb . . . a masterpiece of romantic suspense.” —Publishers Weekly (starred review) on Something Wicked “A chilling thriller with enough false leads to keep readers enthralled to the finish.” —Library Journal on One Last Breath

Fiona claims she doesn’t remember anything about the night her best friend left a party early and walked into the ocean. But the truth is, she wishes she could forget. Trixie’s disappearance is ruled a suicide, but Fiona starts to believe that Trixie isn’t really dead. Piecing together the trail of a girl who doesn't want to be found leads her to Jasper, Trixie’s former friend with benefits, and Beau—the boy who turned Fiona down, who loved someone else, who might be happy Trixie is gone. The closer Fiona gets to finding out what happened, and the closer she gets to Jasper and Beau, the more she realizes that the girl she knew better than anyone may have been a carefully constructed lie—and she might have been waiting to disappear the entire time. Told in alternating chapters between the past and the present, Last Girl Lied To is a gripping emotional thriller. An Imprint Book

Born on the cusp of WWII in 1938, at a time when other little girls dreamed of being nurses and secretaries, Trina Robbins’s ambition was to be a bohemian; and indeed she did. She chronicles a life of sex, drugs, rock ’n’ roll — and comics — in Last Girl Standing. Robbins describes her upbringing in Queens, New York, reading comics through her childhood in the 1940s; visiting the EC offices and becoming part of SF fandom (dating Harlan Ellison at age 16); and posing nude for men’s magazines in the 1950s; living in the Village, over her own boutique where she made clothes for and interacted with rock royalty like David Crosby, Donovan, Cass Elliot; her close relationship with Paul Williams; entering the orbit of underground cartoonists like Art Spiegelman, R. Crumb, Vaughn Bodé, and Bill Griffith, when she started contributing comics to The East Village Other; and, in the ’70s, moving to San Francisco, contending with the phallocentric underground scene, marrying Kim Deitch, co-founding Wimmen’s Comix, and being invited into Felch Comics (she declined); her work for the National Lampoon, Marvel Comics, and Eclipse in the 1980s; and her crisis as a cartoonist and transformation into an historian and lecturer in the ’90s and 2000s. From science fiction to the Sunset Strip, from New York’s underground newspapers to San Francisco’s underground comix: Trina Robbins broke the rules and broke the law. From dressing Mama Cass to being pelted with jelly babies as she helped photograph the Rolling Stones’s first US tour, from drunken New York nights spent with Jim Morrison to producing the very first all-woman comic book, this former Lady of the Canyon takes no prisoners in this heavily illustrated memoir.

Six years ago strangers broke into Juliette’s house; she was home alone. She kept her eyes closed, praying that if she didn’t see anything, she wouldn’t be killed. No one harmed her. In fact, one of the thieves protected her. Now Juliette’s dreams are haunted by him. Christian has waited to take her, resisting the urge each night. It always ends badly with human pets. They’re too fragile. The longer he can wait, the better, because the moment he takes her, the clock on her life starts ticking down. Then she’ll be gone forever. What Readers Are Saying About The Last Girl: "OMG! I love this book! It was crazy amazing! This is definitely my favorite book so far by Kitty Thomas. It is beautifully disturbing! There are no light and fluffy vampires in this book which is probably why I loved it so much and the story was excellent! Read. This. Book." -Rosanna Albani "This is the first book I have read involving a vampire. I have read many erotic romance books, regular romance books, and simple erotic books, I didn't realize how much i would like this kind of story, it was great." -A.J. Powers "I wasn't sure what to think about Kitty Thomas writing a vampire tale. The cover was breath-taking though (I'm a sucker for pretty covers)and I liked the description of a darker vampire story. Boy is it dark too! Beautiful blend of dark erotica and dark paranormal romance. But, it's a more realistic take on a vampire romance. It also ends perfectly. Not a whimsical romance by any stretch of the imagination, but a good read." -Autumn Jones Lake "Maybe I am a vampire groupie, but Christian's brutal charisma makes his capture of Juliette seem like a pretty good deal to me. It's almost as if she is being afraid because she thinks she should be. "It is the hedonistic and animal side that craves pleasure, even if the cost is pain and fear." This book is poetic and dark beauty, most of it is the channel of Juliette's thoughts, the journey her soul takes. I may gush and go on and on about this story, but take heed of the warnings, this story is not for everyone. It is dark erotica. But it is fabulous and well written. If you have an open mind it will take you on a fabulous trip. It's not just about sex. It explores ownership, just like the author, Kitty Thomas, says she likes to do with her writing. It explores lust versus love, need versus want. Forever versus as long as he lets you live.... See, Christian knows he has a line that he will eventually cross, and he knows that the end is near for Juliette. She's human, she will not be able to withstand his needs." -Liz @ Fictional Candy "I fell under Christian's spell right along with Juliette. He was powerful and unapologetic about his Dominance. He was dangerous and beautiful and all of the things that drive little subbies to their knees. If you have ever fallen in love with the monster because he was beautiful, tortured, and alone, you will love Christian. This book took me places I had never been before and that is saying quite a lot." -Brian If you like Kitty Thomas, consider trying some of these other great authors: CJ Roberts, Tiffany Reisz, Annabel Joseph, Pepper Winters, Anna Zaires, Aleatha Romig, Skye Warren, Cherise Sinclair, and Willow Winters

"Maeve Kerrigan [is] a fascinating and plausible character...What she has is persistence, integrity and emotional intelligence, and a very deft way of insinuating herself into a reader's affections."—The Irish Independent (UK) Vast wealth offers London defense attorney Philip Kennford a lot of things: a gorgeous house with a pool in the backyard, connections in the top echelons of society, a wardrobe worthy of Milan runways. But his money doesn't provide a happy marriage, or good relationships with his twin daughters...and it does nothing to protect his family when someone brutally murders his wife and daughter in their own home. When Detective Constable Maeve Kerrigan arrives at the scene, the two survivors—Philip and his second favorite daughter, Lydia—both claim to have seen nothing, but it's clear right away that this is an unhappy family accustomed to keeping secrets. Maeve soon finds herself entangled in a case with a thousand leads that all seem to point nowhere, and it doesn't help that her boss, whom she trusts more than almost anyone, is starting to make decisions that Maeve finds questionable at best. In The Last Girl, Jane Casey once again demonstrates her ability to write vivid, three-dimensional characters and spin a gripping, unpredictable mystery.

For a full hour I sat at my desk and stared up at the two photographs. One by one I smoked a packet of twenty Prima cigarettes.... The earth, I felt, was beginning to shift, and the long dead were stirring. In the closing days of the twentieth century, an elderly writer wanders the streets of Vilnius, Lithuania, possessed by the need to photograph the young mothers of the city. In their faces and the faces of their children he sees the reflection of a secret that haunts him. A secret he has spent years trying to bury. In a decaying back street of the city a woman struggles to raise her family. As her son dreams of a better life she is torn between Vilnius' twilight world of prostitution and her determination of securing hope for her children. She too is haunted by memories that rob her of sleep. In Vilnius the rubble of the Jewish ghetto lies side by side with the fallen statues of communist heroes. Through this tangled debris of past and present the story of the writer's great love and his even greater betrayal begins to coil its way to the surface and demands to be told, in The Last Girl by Stephan Collishaw.

A shimmering girl who disappears in daylight. A boy who goes to war and comes back forever broken. New landscapes in which old ghosts appear, telling their bits of stories. Lovers and losses, visions and dreams—such are the people, places, and images who fill Rose Solari's third collection of poetry, The Last Girl. Moving beyond the often-narrative constructions of her previous collection, the poems in this collection tell their truths slant-wise, in spiky, inventive lines that sing their way under the reader's skin. Solari's whole-hearted lyricism of her elegiac moments, linguistic inventiveness, and range of tones sweep the reader from dark to light, from pain to joy, from unbearable loss to giddy delight. The poems in this collection represent a writer working at the peak of her powers, possessed of technical mastery, fierce perception, and a tender but unsentimental heart.

We were a scandal waiting to happen. But I didn't care. For years my life had already been an unending downward spiral. Then my grandfather, Jack, gave me an apartment no one knew about. A secret bequest after his death, and the brief note that accompanied the gift sent me running to Italy. I'd gone to Venice to find peace, knowing I was weak, and instead I found him. He was magnificent, brilliant, jaded, and white-hot danger. I was consumed by him as I've never been by anything or anyone. Vibrant and unrelenting wakefulness burned inside me when he was near. And he became everything I craved and all I lived for. Letting go of us was inevitable, even as it tormented me to tear us apart. THE SAND & FOG SERIES is about the Manzone family, filled with passionate loyalty, enduring hope, and forever love. Each book in this series is carefully written so that you can understand and not feel lost even if you haven't read the other books in the series. You can start the Sand & Fog Series with The Last Girl. But be warned: the characters cross-over from book to book and it's easy for readers to fall in love and become addicted to my other spunky heroines & swoon-worthy heroes and binge read for days!
