Mirror Image (Daniel Rinaldi Series Book 1)

by Dennis Palumbo

Dr. Daniel Rinaldi is a psychologist who consults with the Pittsburgh Police. His specialty is treating victims of violent crime. Kevin Merrick, a college student and victim of an armed assault, is one of these people.

A fragile, troubled kid desperate for a role model and a sense of identity, Kevin has begun dressing like Rinaldi, acting like him, even mirroring his appearance. Before Daniel can work this through with his patient, he finds Kevin brutally murdered. Stunned, he and the police suspect that he, not Kevin, had been the intended target. And now the killer is threatening Rinaldi.

Feeling responsible, Rinaldi is determined to solve the crime. His journey takes him through a labyrinth of friends and colleagues, any one of whom may be the killer. It also includes an affair with a beautiful, free-spirited Assistant DA with secrets of her own. When Kevin’s identity as the estranged son of a Bill-Gates-like biotech giant is revealed, his murder turns into a national story, and another person turns up dead.

The Room Mate (Roommates Book 1)

by Kendall Ryan

A new standalone novel from New York Times bestselling author Kendall Ryan.

The last time I saw my best friend’s younger brother, he was a geek wearing braces. But when Cannon shows up to crash in my spare room, I get a swift reality check.

Now twenty-four, he’s broad shouldered and masculine, and so sinfully sexy, I want to climb him like the jungle gyms we used to enjoy. At six-foot-something with lean muscles hiding under his T-shirt, a deep sexy voice, and full lips that pull into a smirk when he studies me, he’s pure temptation.

Fresh out of a messy breakup, he doesn’t want any entanglements. But I can resist, right?

I’m holding strong until the third night of our new arrangement when we get drunk and he confesses his biggest secret of all: he’s cursed when it comes to sex. Apparently he’s a god in bed, and women instantly fall in love with him.

I’m calling bullshit. In fact, I’m going to prove him wrong, and if I rack up a few much-needed orgasms in the process, all the better.

There’s no way I’m going to fall in love with Cannon. But once we startâ?¦I realize betting against him may have been the biggest mistake of my life.

The Carnival of Florence

by Marjorie Bowen

A Dominican Italian friar, Girolamo Savonarola was a preacher active in Renaissance Florence – and is often deemed one of the most tragic figures in modern history.

A Protestant but not a Heretic, a Reformer but not a Dissenter, Savonarola’s ambitious attempt to transform the Roman Church and prevent the Reformation was one fraught with dichotomies and struggle. Forced to confront not only his own inadequacies, but also those of his Faith, more often than not Savonarola found himself an impediment to his own inspiration.

But when his refusal to join the Holy League against the French resulted in Savonarola being summoned directly to the Vatican, his future suddenly became even more uncertain…

Through her celebrated blend of history and fiction, Bowen brings this unfortunate figure to life in this biographical novel. Set in fifteenth-century Italy, The Carnival of Florence is a gripping tale of a remarkable man who led a life of tragedy that met a fiery endâ?¦
