The Death of Kings (Emperor Series Book 2): Conn Iggulden
One sweet, unassuming book blogger targeted by an assassin. One handsome prince sworn to protect her. These two have nothing in common, except undeniable chemistry and the target painted on their backs.When Prince Conner Udine promised his best friend and former Marine buddy that he’d protect his sister, he never imagined that it would lead to a lifetime commitment. But as a 16th-century law resurfaces, his life plan takes a drastic turn, and now he has to marry before his 30th birthday, or he’ll lose the throne and hasten his father’s illness that will lead to his death. Olivia Hawke’s feelings for Conner are her best-kept secret. A romance between them would be inappropriate. But now that he’s her protector, and she has to live in his castle, that secret is getting harder to keep. And when it’s revealed that he has to marry someone, and fast, things go from awkward...to dangerous. Will she agree to give him her hand and finally get the happily-ever-after she’s always dreamed of, or will her fear for his safety, and her own, cause her to turn down the proposal of her dreams?While this story is a stand-alone novel that belongs to the Hawke Family Fortune, there are mentions of the Marshall Family Saga, the House of Morgan, the upcoming Brothers in Revenge novels, and even Princes of Avce characters and storylines are all intertwined in the same world.This USA Today best-selling author includes an all new dazzling romance and with tons of family drama!

Laci Rocha Peterson, eight months pregnant, was last seen by her sister, Amy, in the late afternoon of December 23, 2002. She spoke to her mother, Sharon Rocha, at 8:30 p.m. that night. This would be the last time anyone from her immediate family ever spoke to her. A search began which lasted an agonizing four months. Sadly, Laci Peterson and her son Conner were found dead on the shores of San Francisco Bay on April 18, 2003. Her husband, Scott, was eventually arrested and charged with the murder of Laci and Connor. After a sensational, media-saturated trial, Peterson was found guilty of capital murder and was sentenced to death on March 16, 2005. This book deals with the story in three separate sections: first, Sharon describes the ordinary, loving life her daughter led, including fond memories of her childhood and adolescence. Second, it covers her marriage, disappearance, the community´s moving search for her, and her and Connor´s eventual recovery from San Francisco Bay. Third, it tells the story of the trial in detail not before revealed. Sharon also talks about victim´s rights, a subject on which she now campaigns regularly. 1. Language: English.

When a cluster of blazingly fast meteorites strikes Earth’s upper stratosphere in the year 2129, they release three destabilizing elements into the atmosphere - Strongzine, Stradamine, and Starlox - which encircle the Earth’s surface in a thick, partially solidified layer of cloud and begin to spew a constant stream of acid rain onto the surface below. Organic life forms are all but obliterated, and the human race is reduced to a tiny fraction of its population. This event is known as the Ruin. But five centuries later, humanity still survives. Cloudwalkers tells the story of Conn Brataich, a young man who lives a privileged life above the cloudbank, relying on his noble heritage - and the abilities it provides - to guide him through his beautiful but treacherous realm in the New York skylands, and Misty Casper, a Grounder who lives an arduous and somber life hundreds of feet below in the former subway tunnels of crumbling midtown Manhattan. Their two cultures live in uneasy, segregated codependence, rarely interacting until late one fall evening when, mysteriously, an experienced Cloudwalker of noble blood falls 500 feet to his death. Conn is sent to recover the body in secret, but he doesn’t expect to encounter Misty on the dangerous streets of the dying city. Their chance encounter triggers a domino effect that throws them both headlong into a struggle for their very survival. Conn and Misty soon discover that only by working together can they succeed, but first they’ll have to put aside their preconceived notions about one another. Dark forces, long thought to have been expunged, have returned and are threatening to destroy both their ways of life. Through love, loss, and the looming threat of war, Misty and Conn will be forced to face their greatest fears for the sake of their very world and each other. 1. Language: English.
