Boone O’Keirna knows Ophelia is trouble the second he sees the way she moves. Not about to let the deadly little hellcat marry his sadistic half-brother, Boone pretends to be the Prince’s emissary and kidnaps Ophelia. Too bad they can’t be in the same room without him wanting to throw her out an airlock–or into bed.

Even as they fight each other–and their explosive attraction–Ophelia and Boone sense something is wrong. Too much is going their way. Soon, they realize while the cards may never lie, the truth is sometimes hidden between them…and the future king of Hansarda is not one to take defeat lying down.

 Title: Diva (Flappers #3)
Author: Jillian Larkin

Parties, bad boys, speakeasies—life in Manhattan has become a woozy blur for Clara Knowles. If Marcus Eastman truly loved her, how could he have fallen for another girl so quickly?

Being a Barnard girl is the stuff of Lorraine Dyer's dreams. Finding out that Marcus is marrying a gold digger who may or may not be named Anastasia? A nightmare.

But will anyone listen to her?

Now that the charges against her have been dropped, Gloria Carmody is spending the last dizzying days of summer on Long Island, yachting on the sound and palling around with socialites at Forrest Hamilton's swanky villa.

Title: Dark Water (Siren #3)
Author: Tricia Rayburn

The sea is calling, but the reluctant siren will do anything not to answer. . . .
A year after the events that killed her sister and turned her into a siren, Vanessa is desperately trying to put her family back together and reclaim a “normal” life. But no matter how many times she swims, or how much salt water she drinks, she can feel herself getting weaker and weaker. She has no idea how to survive as a siren and she doesn’t want to know the truth about her newly discovered identity. It’s just too horrifying.

Then her biological mother shows up at her summer house in Maine—she is one of the Nenuphars, the most powerful of all sirens. She promises that she wants to help the daughter from whom she’s been separated for far too long. But is she to be trusted? Now Vanessa must face the harshest reality of all—to survive she must endanger and injure others—but is that any sort of life?

Chilling and romantic, Dark Water explores questions of identity as old as the sea, and brings the Siren trilogy to a startling conclusion.

Though Leah has crushed on Grayson for years, she’s leery of getting involved in what now seems like a doomed business — until Grayson betrays her by digging up her most damning secret.

Now Leah finds herself drawn into a battle between brothers — and the consequences could be deadly.
