Martin Jeppesen, a down-to-earth, savvy marketing executive, deals with stress by imagining things - a bat wafting around a boardroom, for example, or molten ink enveloping the head of a garrulous luncheon companion. As his life becomes more and more stressful, his imaginings begin to run wild and hallucinations eventually dominate his life, to the point where the only thing he thinks is a hallucination is reality. How he deals with this, and how it affects the people in his life, is the subject of The Madman's Kiss.

For fans of Libba Bray, this first book in a gothic suspense trilogy is inspired by H. G. Wells's The Island of Dr. Moreau and has been hailed by New York Times bestseller Carrie Ryan as having "beautiful writing, breakneck pacing, a pulse-pounding mystery, and an irresistible romance." Following accusations that her scientist father gruesomely experimented on animals, sixteen-year-old Juliet watched as her family and her genteel life in London crumbled around her—and only recently has she managed to piece her world back together. But when Juliet learns her father is still alive and working on a remote tropical island, she is determined to find out if the old accusations are true. Accompanied by her father's handsome young assistant, Montgomery, and an enigmatic castaway, Edward, Juliet travels to the island, only to discover the depths of her father's insanity. Torn between horror and scientific curiosity, Juliet knows she must end her father's dangerous experiments and escape her jungle prison before it's too late. Yet as the island falls into chaos, she discovers the extent of her father's genius—and madness—in her own blood.

On the day her husband is sentenced to prison, Angela Santiago Hart gives up her newborn son for adoption. Eleven years later, she wants him back. This sets in motion a chain of events which engulfs the boy, Ethan, his sister, Abby, and a vast cast of memorable characters, in a maelstrom of legal, domestic and sexual nightmares. Although the novel deals with heady stuff, like the family courts, sexual slavery, murder, pedophilia, madness, prison, and a dark underworld of judicial and personal brutality, what draws one in is how the children endure and transcend their ordeals and the psychological consequences of doing so that emerge later on. Added to this are the stories of the childrens parents, Angelas husband, boyfriend and other children, a family court judge and her husband, the girls tricked or kidnapped into slavery, various judges and lawyers, all transformed by a single miscarriage of justice. The power of the book is in the courage, grit, determination and craftiness of its characters and and in their victories against impossible odds.

It's New Year's Eve...and now or never for these two hearts When a woman with no faith in love meets the quintessential nice guy determined to breach her mile-high walls, sparks fly as both fight a decidedly unwelcome but equally unavoidable attraction. Steph Hargrove was a bombshell, a sexy, intrepid woman operating in the business world with guts, brains and daring. She was accustomed to going after whatever she wanted until a man she called friend betrayed her and the company she’d helped build—and nearly killed her in the process. Since that time, she’s been a shadow of the wild, wicked woman who’d carved a swath through her world. Gavin O’Neill is an artisan with wood, a gardener, a restorer of battered homes and a savior of strays. When first he meets the wounded woman who postures as invincible and worldly, the sadness in her eyes draws him even more than her lush figure does. However she insists otherwise, he sees that she needs the kindness and friendship he can give to her while he’s waiting for the woman of his dreams, who will be small and soft and sweet, different in every way from the woman he keeps returning to see. Yet while he’s not interested in the virago and she refuses to be nurtured, a potent attraction keeps them circling each other. And while they’re busy listing the reasons they’re unsuited, something powerful is growing between them. New Year’s Eve is for lovers and new beginnings…will these two stubborn souls take the risk?
