Something to Look Forward to: Novel July Offerings


Obsession FallsReaders will return from the long holiday weekend with something to look forward to as July sees a flurry of reissues and first time in paperback offerings from some of America’s top authors.

From New York Times Bestselling Author Christina Dodd comes Obsession Falls, Book 2 in her Virtue Falls Series from Saint Martin’s Press. Taylor Summers witnesses a boy receive a death threat and promptly does the only thing she can do. She sacrifices herself to distract the killers. Her reward for her noble act is a life in ruins—she loses everything: her career, her reputation, and her identity.  She finds refuge in Virtue Falls, where she realizes that to live her life again she must enlist the help of the man who does not trust her to Defenderdefeat the man who would destroy her.

Meanwhile, New York Times Bestselling Author Diana Palmer returns in July with a new title in her Long, Tall Texans Series:  Defender.  When Paul Fiore disappeared from Isabel Grayling’s life, he believed it was for all the right reasons: She was young and innocent. He was just a lowly employee of her father. Three years have gone by, and now Paul is the FBI agent assigned to a case that makes it only too clear that life in the big Texas mansion was more sentence than pleasure for Isabel.  Isabel knows Paul won’t hesitate to protect her life over his own, but if she can’t trust herself to resist him, how can she trust him not to break her heart all over again?

And for fans of #1 New York Times Bestselling Author Linda Lael Miller, July will let you catch up on Book 4, Book 5 and Book 6 in her acclaimed Stone Creek Series as well as enjoy a reissue of Batteries Not Required from 2005.

Let the fireworks begin!
