by Christina Dodd | Genre: SuspenseVirtue Falls Series

Twenty-three years ago, in the isolated coastal town of Virtue Falls, Washington, four year old Elizabeth Banner witnessed her mother’s brutal murder. Elizabeth’s father was convicted of killing Misty and sentenced to prison. Elizabeth grew from a solitary child to a beautiful woman with a cool scientific mind and an instinctive distrust of love. Now she is back in Virtue Falls, a geologist like her father, her life guided by logic and facts. But nothing can help her through the emotional chaos that follows the return of her ex-husband, Garik Jacobsen, an FBI agent on probation and tortured by the guilt of his past deeds. Nor can it help her deal with her father, now stricken with Alzheimer’s and haunted by Misty’s ghost. When a massive earthquake reveals long-concealed secrets, Elizabeth soon discovers her father is innocent. Is the killer still at large, stalking ever closer to the one witness to Misty’s murder? To Elizabeth herself? Elizabeth and Garik investigate, stirring old dark and deadly resentments that could provoke another bloody murder— Elizabeth’s own.

THAT SCANDALOUS EVENING: The Governess Brides #1, On Sale Now

by Christina Dodd | Genre: Governess Brides SeriesHistorical

New York Times bestseller Christina Dodd brings you brings you her wittiest Regency tale of propriety lost…and love won…in this prequel to her famed Governess Brides Series!

A Disastrous Season…A simple statue began the scandal.
A Lady Concealed…An innocent English miss conceived of it, her hands gliding across the clay, delineating each smoothly defined muscle and sinew, creating a sculpture of the man she worshipped. When the likeness was exposed along with Miss Jane Higgenbothem’s secret tendre for Lord Blackburn, the ton’s amusement sent Jane away in disgrace.
A Gentleman Revealed…Now, a decade later, Jane is back in London as chaperone to her beautiful niece. But to Blackburn, Jane’s unwitting model, the cool spinster is still a challenge. She once made the arrogant rake a laughingstock: so why is he tempted to revive an affair that began so long ago, on THAT SCANDALOUS EVENING?

Get THAT SCANDALOUS EVENING from your local bookseller or order it from Amazon, Barnes and Noble or Books-a-Million. In eBook: Kindle, Nook, iBooks, Kobo


A PIRATE’S WIFE FOR ME: Governess Brides #11

by Christina Dodd | Genre: Governess Brides SeriesHistorical

New York Times bestselling author Christina Dodd brings you the historical romance you’ve been waiting for, the all-new, full-length Governess Brides historical…

Caitlin MacLeod of Scotland is proud to announce her graduation from The Distinguished Academy of Governesses. She specializes in the womanly arts of housekeeping, picking locks, and overthrowing ruthless dictators, and is looking for a position wherein she can utilize these skills. No dashing, dastardly pirates or faithless, former lovers need seek her services.

Ship’s captain (and prince in disguise) Taran Tamson is by coincidence in need of the best lockpick in the land; he needs the reckless auburn-haired beauty to retrieve the papers that will help him leave behind his swashbuckling ways and win his island kingdom of Cenorina. He assures said lady that he will honor her demand for a proper, chaste relationship for as long as she desires it, then use his every sensual wile to make sure she desires only one thing — him…

by Christina Dodd | Genre: SuspenseVirtue Falls Series

Blockbuster bestselling author Christina Dodd delivers a novel that will leave readers breathlessly turning the pages in this “stunning work of mystery, danger, and romance.”

Taylor Summers witnesses the death threat to a young boy, and does the only thing she can do—she sacrifices herself to distract the killers. Her reward is a life in ruins, on the run in the wilderness, barely surviving a bitter winter and the even more bitter knowledge she has lost everything: her career, her reputation, her identity. She finds refuge in Virtue Falls, and there comes face to face with the knowledge that, to live her life again, she must enlist the help of the man who does not trust her to defeat the man who would destroy her.

She’s being hunted, but it’s time to turn the tables….

Coming September 8 in hardcover and for your KindleNookKoboGooglePlayiBooks.
