Dirty Exes (Liars, Inc., 1) -Rachel Van Dyken

Blaire has never quite gotten over Jessie Beckett, the ex–NFL star whose kisses were hot enough to ignite the entire Eastern Seaboard. When he chose work over her, Blaire was left brokenhearted. Why else would she have married a skeezy two-timer, just to divorce him less than a year later?

Now Blaire is getting even by becoming one half of Dirty Exes, a PI firm fully committed to humiliating cheating jerks. If only the new jerk she’s been hired to uncover wasn’t Jessie Beckett himself.

Exposing Jessie isn’t going to be easy, especially when she still daydreams about his sexy smile. Further complicating matters is Colin, Jessie’s best friend. He’s gorgeous, a little bit cunning, and willing to help Blaire get the inside scoop on Jessie—for a price.

Now caught between two men—one totally right and the other totally wrong—Blaire will need to decide just how much she’s willing to risk…and whom she’s willing to risk it for.

 

Spies, Lies and Allies – Lisa Brown Roberts

Summers are supposed to be fun, right? Not mine. I’ve got a job at my dad’s company, which is sponsoring a college scholarship competition. I just found out that, in addition to my job assisting the competing interns, I’m supposed to vote for the winner. Totally not what I signed up for.

There’s a crazy guy running the competition like it’s an episode of Survivor. Then there’s Carlos, who is, well, very distracting –– in a good way. But I can’t even think about him that way because Crazy Guy says any fraternizing on the job means instant disqualification for the intern involved.

As if that’s not enough, an anonymous weirdo with insider intel is trying to sabotage my dad’s company on social media…and I’m afraid it’s working.

Much as I’d love to quit, I can’t. Kristoffs Never Quit is our family motto. I just hope there’s more than one survivor by the end of this summer.

Kings of Ashes (Firename, 1) – Raymond E. Feist

The first volume in legendary master and New York Times bestselling author Raymond E. Feist’s epic heroic fantasy series, The Firemane Saga—an electrifying tale of two young men whose choices will determine a world’s destiny.

For centuries, the five greatest kingdoms of North and South Tembria, twin continents on the world of Garn, have coexisted in peace. But the balance of power is destroyed when four of the kingdoms violate an ancient covenant and betray the fifth: Ithrace, the Kingdom of Flames, ruled by Steveren Langene, known as « the Firemane » for his brilliant red hair. As war engulfs the world, Ithrace is destroyed and the Greater Realms of Tembria are thrust into a dangerous struggle for supremacy.
As a Free Lord, Baron Daylon Dumarch owes allegiance to no king. When an abandoned infant is found hidden in Daylon’s pavilion, he realizes that the child must be the missing heir of the slain Steveren. The boy is valuable—and vulnerable. A cunning and patient man, Daylon decides to keep the baby’s existence secret, and sends him to be raised on the Island of Coaltachin, home of the so-called Kingdom of Night, where the powerful and lethal Nocusara, the « Hidden Warriors, » legendary assassins and spies, are trained.

Years later, another orphan of mysterious provenance, a young man named Declan, earns his Masters rank as a weapons smith. Blessed with intelligence and skill, he unlocks the secret to forging King’s Steel, the apex of a weapon maker’s trade known by very few. Yet this precious knowledge is also deadly, and Declan is forced to leave his home to safeguard his life. Landing in Lord Daylon’s provinces, he hopes to start anew.

Soon, the two young men—an unknowing rightful heir to a throne and a brilliantly talented young swordsmith—will discover that their fates, and that of Garn, are entwined. The legendary, long-ago War of Betrayal has never truly ended . . . and they must discover the secret of who truly threatens their world.

Nuit sans fin (Pendergast, 17) – Preston & Child

À FORCE DE TROUVER DES CADAVRES SANS TÊTE…

Quel point commun entre la fille d’un milliardaire, un ancien avocat véreux, un oligarque russe… ?
Tous ont été assassinés à New York, la cité des ténèbres, la ville de la nuit sans fin.
Tous ont été décapités et leur tête a disparu, comme si l’assassin était une sorte de collectionneur morbide…

… PENDERGAST POURRAIT BIEN Y PERDRE LA SIENNE !

Selon quels critères le criminel choisit-il ses victimes ? Vincent d’Agosta, du NYPD, et l’agent spécial Pendergast, du FBI, sont sur les dents. D’autant que ce dernier pourrait bien être la prochaine cible du tueur.
Une enquête constellée de fausses pistes où intelligence et sens de la déduction seront des atouts capitaux !

Thérapie du Crime – Sophie Jomain & Maxime Gillo

Alice Rivière est une psychologue peu conventionnelle. L’incongruité, c’est son truc. Elle ne fait rien comme personne et c’est même la raison pour laquelle on vient la voir. D’ailleurs, si elle pouvait parler de ce qu’on lui confie lors de ces séances, elle aurait des centaines d’histoires à raconter. Mais la discrétion est une règle d’or. Une règle fortement ébranlée par la réapparition du commandant Xavier Capelle qui vient lui soutirer des informations sur un de ses patients. Encore faudrait-il qu’elle accepte de l’aider et qu’elle lui pardonne l’humiliation subie seize ans plus tôt. Et pour ça, il peut toujours courir…

Ville Condamnée – Nicolas Villeneuve

« Bienvenue à Mersin ».
C’est l’affiche qui accueille Marc et ses compagnons à l’entrée de la petite ville calme. Peut-être même trop calme. Pas de bruit, pas d’habitant… simplement des questions qui se bousculent dans les têtes et l’étrange sensation d’une présence qui murmure de fuir.
