A wealthy, if dysfunctional, family sets out on a $600 million island treasure hunt, all at the behest of a vengeful deceased matriarch. Among the competitors is Rule Danforth, who left his rarefied family to pursue the protection of a rare zebra breed. But now he’s lost his land and needs a windfall in order to continue his worthy efforts. Along for the ride is a local woman, Mandy McRae, who vows to help Rule claim the reward, but may have other less-pure motives as well.
Tonight and Always by Linda Lael Miller
A classic paranormal tale by bestselling author Linda Lael Miller—now available on NOOK.
Kristina's beauty befits a child of vampires, but she does not possess the seductive gifts of her parents. Her cursed bloodline remains, making her immortal. The one time she dared give her heart to a mortal man, she suffered the torment of his immortality, and vowed never to love again—until now.
A glacial volcano awakens with a series of eruptions, stranding ex-cop Hobson at 66 degrees north, where human behavior is as unpredictable as the weather. Hobson's quickly ensnared in a bizarre murder investigation involving Gummi, a road-weary homicide detective; Jon Kari, an amoral entrepreneur; Snorri, a brutal pimp; and Ulfar, a homicidal sheep farmer. As Hobson falls in with a group of enigmatic tourists trying to survive the volcanic aftermath, the chase for a killer pushes them all to the icy edge of the inhabitable world.
