Newly named head of Quinn Security Investigations, retired detective Logan Jeffries believes in law and order. Everything should have its place. A personal life should never interfere with work. Relationships should have their own rules too. Logan lives by his own laws -- five precisely. As long as he follows them, all is right in his regimented world. Nate Jordan wishes he could say no when assigned to work with Logan. Nate has never forgotten Logan's kindness the night they met. In the three years since, his crush has only grown. This partnership will surely end in disaster, but Nate cannot walk away. Quickly, Logan and Nate delve into the search for a missing socialite.
Nothing else should occupy Logan's thoughts. The only problem? Nate is determined and sweet, and working with him awakens Logan's deepest desires. Logan won't break his laws, though. Not even for the gentlest, sexiest man in the world. Meanwhile, Nate is falling harder and faster for Logan every day they're together. The craziest damn thing is he thinks he senses attraction under Logan's controlled facade. Nate will have to break every one of Logan's laws to capture the man of his dreams.

El padre Pío de Pietrelcina nació en 1887 y murió en 1968 en el convento capuchino de San Giovanni Rotondo. Allí dedicó medio siglo casi exclusivamente a confesar a decenas de miles de personas que acudían a verle atraídas por su fama de santidad y por los numerosos milagros y hechos extraordinarios que rodearon su vida. Sobre todo, los estigmas, que recibió siendo muy joven y le hicieron vivir en su propia carne la Pasión de Cristo. Juan Pablo II lo elevó a los altares en 2002 ante la mayor asistencia jamás registrada en una canonización. Y desde entonces su nombre, que ya era venerado masivamente en Italia, se ha extendido por toda la tierra. “Daré más guerra muerto que vivo”, profetizó el santo. Este libro, con sus impactantes historias de fe y conversión, es una buena prueba de ello.

Salon Kitty was a high-class brothel in Berlin, in World War II. It was used by the Nazis to gather intelligence, with secrets pried from clients at the brothel by booze and sexy women.
That much is true, and a matter of historical record. Were there really secret rooms in the basement of Salon Kitty, rooms where beautiful women were kept as playthings for a kinky, sadistic, high-ranking official? Major Mueller, recently transferred to the SS and promoted to Lieutenant Colonel, was sent to investigate rumours that more was going on at Salon Kitty than sex and information-gathering, but what he found would change his whole life… after he took the opportunity to sample some of the “merchandise” of Berlin’s most notorious brothel, of course.
