The units are built around a tree-lined cul de sac, on a narrow road that winds up just off Ventura Boulevard. I pull into one of the guest parking spaces and get out of the car. It’s so quiet I have to strain to hear the traffic. Hard to believe the noise and crowding on Ventura are just d...

What he was doing was both undignified and foolhardy, but it would hopefully demonstrate his determination and the depth of his feelings. All he wanted was to have a short civil conversation. Well, that wasn’t all he wanted, but he would settle for a chance to be able to declare himself. The wind...

I was making a list of what I knew and questions I had about the death of Ashton Prince. I always liked making lists. It gave me the illusion of control.

Looking after Amelia was just as inconvenient as he had feared. It wasn’t that the child was troublesome in herself – quite the opposite, in fact. Most of the time she was as good as gold. It was just that he was all too aware he was supposed to be looking after her. There was only so much televi...

With a soft grumble, she burrowed beneath the coverlet Tade had pulled over their naked bodies after their last loving, reveling again in the spicy scent of his skin, the tenderness with which he held her, as though, even in sleep, he sought to treasure her. This was so new, so special, this sens...
