Rachel Van Dyken - Egyetlen ​méreg
Wes ​és Kiersten legjobb barátja, Gabe igazi balhés srác: egyik lányt fogyasztja a másik után, sötét haja és tetovált karja sem riaszt el senkit. Sőt. Saylor igazi mintadiák: nagyszerű eredményei vannak, ösztöndíjat kap, kiválóan zongorázik, de valami mégis hiányzik az életéből – és a játékából. A szenvedély. Ők ketten egy zaklatott délutánon egy gyakorlóterembe futnak össze – szó szerint –, és bár elsőre taszítják egymást, hamar kiderül, hogy valami furcsa módon egy húron pendülnek. Aztán egy napon Saylor önkéntes munkát vállal egy rehabilitációs intézetben. Az ápoltak közül kiragyog Hercegnő, a nyaktól lefelé bénult lány. De mit keres ott Gabe minden nap? Mire Saylor választ talál a kérdésre, menthetetlenül belegabalyodik Gabe életébe. Vajon együtt sikerül megküzdeniük a múlt döntéseinek következményeivel?


Rachel Van Dyken - Egyetlen
Kiersten ​elsőéves az egyetemen. Még sosem találkozott senkivel, aki a rémálmait elűzte volna, de olyannal sem, akit ha meglát, a szíve hevesebben kalapál. A beiratkozáskor azonban összefut egy fiúval - szó szerint -, akitől nemcsak kalapál a szíve, hanem egyenesen kiugrik a helyéről. Weston, az egyetemi focicsapat nagymenője sok lánnyal találkozott már. Volt olyan is, aki szexuális zaklatással vádolta. Már éppen nyugvópontra ért volna az élete, erre besétál az ajtón egy elsőéves, akinek vadító vörös hajzuhataga van, és zöld szemében olyan titkok csillognak, amelyeket azonnal meg akar fejteni. Rachel Van Dyken Egyetlen trilógiájának első kötete egy nem mindennapi páros történetét meséli el. Megvédhet-e a szerelem a rémálmoktól? És mi történik, ha a halálos kórral kell szembenézni?

Rachel Van Dyken - Avoiding ​Temptation
I ​hit on her first. Realized she was my best friend Finn's little sister second. And got a bloody nose third — compliments of Finn after he watched me nearly score with the new underclassman. After all I did have a reputation on campus, word on the street was that a girl could orgasm within one minute just watching me eat Lucky Charms. You can't make this stuff up — even though it was at least four minutes and included outside circumstances. Ahem, I digress. Point is, not only did I earn the attention of the worst sort of girl for me — my best friend's only sibling — but now she's out to seduce me. Me! One of the most famous Pleasure Ponies of them all! I can't shower — she follows me to the bathroom. Literally. I can't sleep — Lucky me, she lives in the same dorm. And I can't focus on anything except for her taunting eyes every single time something goes her way. I want her, but I don't want her to know I want her, and I definitely don't want to die before graduation, which is looking more and more likely considering we can't keep our hands off each other. Something's gotta give, and I have an inkling I should probably start writing my eulogy now because that something is probably going to be me.

Rachel Van Dyken - Compromising ​Kessen
The ​last thing career-driven Kessen Newberry wants is to leave her home in Colorado to spend a Season in London, far away from her job, her friends and the memories of her mother. However, her father, the Earl of Newberry, threatens to disinherit her unless she gets in touch with her British roots. She complies, but has no intention of enjoying the experience. That is until she meets Christian Vandenbrook, the arrogant and irritatingly handsome future Duke of Albany and her father’s business partner. Unfortunately, Christian hates Americans. And coffee. And apparently, Kessen. A hatred this passionate can only lead to one thing… marriage. Caught in the middle of a Regency-inspired nightmare, Kessen and Christian are forced to marry in only one week’s time. Resigned to their fate, the two resolve to give the relationship a chance—which would be much easier if everyone would stop interrupting them every time they found a moment alone.

Rachel Van Dyken - Forever
This ​is the conclusion to Alec and Nat's story. I breathed in and out for a few seconds as I waited at the end of the aisle. It felt like I was standing overlooking the edge of a cliff, and the minute I saw my future wife, I was going to freefall. The music started. Shit, I was seriously going to pass out. People stood, Demetri nodded his head and patted me on the back. And then I saw her. It was like seeing her for the first time all over again. Memories of meeting her that first day of school had me grinning from ear to ear. The local girl, who didn’t even know who I was the first time she saw me, fell for me. And in return, gave me her heart for safekeeping. I ached to touch her as she walked slowly down the aisle. Her brown eyes met mine. And I lost it. Every single fear that I was holding on to snapped. Forget drugs. Forget needing to calm down. I couldn’t stop my heart from beating out of my chest, and I didn’t want to. I just wanted to touch her, to tell her how pretty she was in her white dress. I wanted to promise her forever, I wanted to be her eternity.

Rachel Van Dyken - The ​Dare
Boring ​Beth Lynn has always lived up to her nickname… until she wakes up in a hotel bed next to a sexy as sin state senator she re-connected with at a wedding the previous night. The biggest problem? She can't seem to remember anything about the night before except for crying into a box of cookies, and she’s pretty sure Grandma Nadine slipped something in her drink. And what should have been a one night stand turns into a six day adventure when Grandma whisks them off to Hawaii to save them from the ensuing media firestorm. Jace isn't looking for commitment — he believes he made that clear when he left the wedding with Beth. Then again, he can't remember much of anything other than the way her skin felt beneath his hands. Now he's stuck with her at some lame couple’s retreat and trying his hardest to fight the attraction only a woman like Beth could invoke. He doesn’t think it can get any worse. But one spider attack… A donkey ride from hell… And an unfortunate episode with Viagra tea — and there’s one thing Jace knows for sure: He should never have agreed to Grandma Nadine’s suggestion in the first place. Because if this isn’t paradise, and it isn’t a vacation — that only leaves one option. Survival. But to make it through alive… they might lose their hearts in the process. The Bet #3

Rachel Van Dyken - Dark ​Surrender
Never ​met a male siren before? You're about to.... I grew up as a prince... And lead the life of a King. There isn't anyone or anything that doesn't want me, that isn't attracted to me. They can't help it. And I sure as hell don't want them to. I live for their lust, I crave touch like an addiction, I make them beg on their knees for one, simple, caress. As a male siren it's my job to feed off emotion. And I was happy to do it. I am happy to do it. What I'm not happy about? Being told I have to mate with some withering human and stay loyal to that one person for the next few centuries. There's a war coming and being the idiot I am--I offered to take one for the team in order to help a friend. Now my sexual appetite is taking a freaking kick in the nuts. And I'm left wondering if it's worth it. If she's worth it, with messy hair and dirty human hands. But I have a world to save. A job to do. Now, if only, she would just let me do it rather than fighting me at every turn. I've lived lifetimes as the most irresistible being on the planet. Only to meet my match. With one. Measly. Human. They say hells hot. They're wrong. Because Hope, my little human, is way hotter. And before this is over--she may just singe me alive.

Rachel Van Dyken - Fraternize
Emerson ​just made her dream come true as a professional cheerleader for her favorite pro football team.

Thrown back together, Miller and Emerson feel the undeniable pull of passion again, even if the conflict that tore them apart seems insurmountable. Then there’s way-too-sexy Grant Sanchez. He has a serious reputation with the ladies, and when it comes to winning someone he wants, he doesn’t let anyone stand in his way. Now Emerson is breaking every rule in the manual. But what she doesn’t know is that she’s part of a wicked little game—one that could steal both her dream and her heart.

Rachel Van Dyken - Office ​Hate
#1 ​New York Times bestselling author Rachel Van Dyken delivers a laugh-out-loud romantic comedy with this hilarious, standalone new adult romance. Have you ever hated someone so much that you actually wondered if prison would be worth it? I have. And I had to bear witness to Mark's cocky smile for four miserable years watching girl after girl tumble in and out of his bed while he had nothing but scorn for me. After we graduated college and, thank God, finally parted ways, I thought that I was done having to deal with the enemy. And then I got fired, sending me careening right into a local bar—and Mark's bed. My nightmare came true as we both soon realized that we would be fighting for the same job at Emory Enterprises. We had to live together under the same roof, and as the challenges got weirder and weirder, we got closer and closer—united by the trauma that is CEO Max Emory. When I signed up for this internship, I envisioned coffee runs, not gecko sitting—long story. Soon one thing led to another, and somehow my enemy quickly turned into my best friend. But what happens when the games are over? Furthermore, how do I tell the guy I used to hate that he owns my heart when I wasn't even aware I'd given it away? Prison time or Mark? A few days ago, I would have chosen prison. Now? He's all I see.

Rachel Van Dyken - MVP
I ​was the golden boy. America's Quarterback. I was everything to everyone. Always available. Solid. I can remember how something felt wrong that day. And I haven't been able to get that feeling to go away. Not when I buried my child. Not when my fiancé looked at me like I'd been the reason for it all. Not when I look in the mirror and scream at the top of my lungs. Football kept me sane. But I've lost everything. And then I got a phone call. She was in an accident. She remembered nothing. A gentleman wouldn't fight for her, wouldn't remind her of the pain. So, I let her go. I let her live her happily ever after and I took all the darkness, all the pain, all the anger. Only, the universe had a sick sense of humor. She bumped into me. She pursued me. The beautiful woman I used to call mine. She said she wanted to make me smile. She didn't know she's the reason I stopped.

Rachel Van Dyken - Steal
It's ​easy to lose yourself in someone you love. Easier to lose yourself in someone you hate… I didn't think it could get any worse than having to babysit a bunch of spoiled musicians on set — keeping them out of trouble is a cakewalk compared to seeing my ex every day. Seaside, Oregon isn't big enough for the both of us. She hates me. I loathe her. The plan was simple — stay the hell away and make sure she gets to set on time. What I didn't expect was to be faced with our past in front of an audience — and be forced to face it again. It's torture. The way she looks at me. The way I try to look through her. Words left unsaid. The lingering aftermath still as powerful as ever. I feed the chasm between us, for fear that she'll make me feel again — and steal the last shred of heart I have left. We have everything but each other. It's not enough. Not when you've lost love. And replaced it with the only thing left — hate.

I would rather be tortured for an eternity than hear those damn words from one more person, as if Claire, my dead fiancé, was a cell phone or car keys. How about, I'm sorry your life is over. I'm sorry you want to die too. I'm sorry you see her in your dreams and wake up only to relive the nightmare. I'm supposed to be the strongest of them all.

I feel her touch, her kiss—it was a mistake what we did that night, but I can't take it back, and now she's under my father's protection—my protection. My worst enemy. The woman I'm the most attracted to. I can't decide if I want to strangle her or kiss her, and now that she's stuck in my life, my only goal is to make her feel the same loss I do and destroy her in the process. I'll trick her with my touch. Seduce her with my kiss. And in the end, when my enemy is at her most vulnerable—I'll bring down an entire Empire and continue my reign as King. Bow down, I'll say as I bring the Five Families to their knees. Blood in. Never out. Damned.
