Billionaire businessman, Cal Sellers, knows how to get what he wants. And what he wants is Lucy Monroe. The problem? He had her once and lost her with one careless, arrogant act. And now she´s standing in his office demanding her old job back. Cal has no intention of rehiring her as the co-host of his home shopping TV show, Pleasure at Home. He has an altogether different position in mind for her - as his wife. If Lucy wasn´t so desperate she never would´ve stepped foot in Cal Sellers´s office, let alone the block his building stood on. Lucy´s a survivor who managed to break free of her ex´s terrible abuse, but now he´s back and more determined than ever. He wants their daughter, Poppy, and will stop at nothing to get his little girl back. Lucy will do anything to protect her daughter, including marrying Cal Sellers. Against her better judgment, she agrees to Cal´s proposal and finds herself married to a very different man than the one who broke her heart two years ago. As Lucy´s ex grows bolder and more violent, Cal and Lucy find themselves fighting not only for Poppy, but for a forever love that could be the one thing that will save them all. ungekürzt.

LAPD homicide detective Peter Decker and his wife, Rina Lazarus, will be blindsided by a brutal multiple murder in this twisting tale of suspense from New York Times best-selling author Faye Kellerman. ´´They say dead men don´t talk, but if you listen, they do.´´ As a lieutenant in the LAPD, homicide detective Peter Decker doesn´t get many calls at 3 a.m. unless a case is nasty, sensational - or both. Someone has broken into the exclusive Coyote Ranch compound of billionaire developer Guy Kaffey and viciously gunned him down, along with his wife and four employees. A well-known figure on both the business and society pages, Kaffey, with his sons and his younger brother, Mace, built most of the shopping malls in Southern California and earned a reputation for philanthropy, donating millions to worthy causes. It doesn´t take long for Peter, his trusted detectives Scott Oliver and Marge Dunn, and the rest of his homicide team to figure out that the gruesome killings must be an inside job. Things become even more entangled when they discover that Kaffey´s largesse had included organizations that extended second chances to delinquents, many of whom Kaffey had hired for his personal security. But was the job pure murder/robbery or something even more twisted? A developer of Kaffey´s magnitude doesn´t make billions without making more enemies with blood grudges. With leads taking the team across L.A., up and down the Golden State, and into Mexico, Decker is plenty busy - and plenty thankful not to have to worry about his wife, Rina Lazarus, getting caught up in this deadly case. Rina is out of harm´s way, serving on a jury at the courthouse. But then a chance encounter with a court translator who needs her help leads Rina into the terrifying heart of her husband´s murder investigations - and straight into the path of a gang of ruthless killers. To protect Rina, Decker must find his prey before death unites his two worlds. ungekürzt. Language: English. Narrator: Mitchell Greenberg.

What about that? Thats not a business expense, he said, deadpanned. Youll be liable for them. What? That means youll have to pay for the expenses. Her cheeks burned red. I know what liable means. I meant how am I supposed to pay for that? You shouldve thought of that before you spent all that money, he said, making a note in his folder. She felt her blood boil. He was being so unreasonable. There wasnt even a chance for her to defend herself! She thought she was just going to get fired and that would be the end of it. Instead he was enjoying himself pointing out all her indiscretions. There was no way for her to pay for that. She didnt have that much money to begin with. And he wasnt done. She didnt have time to feel sorry for herself since he started talking again. $246 for lingerie is not company expense. She cringed, but didnt respond. He stared at her, his face an expressionless mask that made her anxious and angry at the same time. It occurred to her that he was enjoying this a whole lot. She clenched her hands into tight fists. She wanted to punch the man in the face to shut him up. Do you have anything to say? he asked, though it sounded like taunting to her ears. She shook her head. Good, because Im not done, he said. She drew a deep breath and made herself comfortable in her seat. Her fingers fiddled with the buttons on her shirt and she found herself getting incredibly warm. She undid the button on her collar, opening up her shirt a little so she could breathe. The company certainly doesnt need a new violin or a sound system, he continued. She ignored him and slowly undid the second button. The shirt was beginning to feel too suffocating. She wanted it off. She waited for him to stop her but when he didnt, she continued. The third button revealed the cleavage between her breasts. A thought occurred to her and she spoke before she could tell her mouth to stop. Did Jennifer get in trouble too? His eyes dip down and she felt her chest flush in response to the attention. Let him look. He would be easier to deal with if he found her attractive. Yes, he said simply. So Jennifer had been stealing company cash too. How much did she spend? she asked despite herself. Too much. More than I did? she asked. His perfect full lips curved into a wicked grin that made her shiver. What you spent is peanuts compared to the amount Jennifer took. Oh, she gasped. Her heart swelled as she started believing she could get away with it. From his own words, he didnt think she took a lot. What did you do? she asked. Seized all her assets and threw her out on the streets, he said as if he was commenting on the weather. Cold sweat trickled down the sides of her face. Maybe she wasnt going to get away with it after all. What do you want me to do? she asked, her voice barely a whimper now. He closed the folder and put it down in front of him. Thats a good sign. Looks like were finally getting somewhere, he said.
