Rachel Van Dyken könyvei a rukkolán


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 - 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 - 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 - The ​Bachelor Auction
Cinderella ​never had to deal with this crap. Jane isn't entirely sure that Cinderella got such a raw deal. Sure, she had a rough start, but didn't she eventually land a prince and a happily-ever-after? Meanwhile, Jane is busy waiting on her demanding, entitled sisters, running her cleaning business, and . . . yep, not a prince in sight. Until a party and a broken shoe incident leave Jane wondering if princes---or at least, a certain deliciously hunky billionaire---maybe do exist. Except Brock Wellington isn't anyone's dream guy. Hell, a prince would never agree to be auctioned off in marriage to the highest bidder. Or act like an arrogant jerk---even if it was just a façade. Now, as Brock is waiting for the auction chopping block, he figures it's karmic retribution that he's tempted by a sexy, sassy woman he can't have. But while they can't have a fairy-tale ending, maybe they can indulge in a little bit of fantasy . .

Rachel Van Dyken - Elude
Twenty-Four ​hours before we were to be married--I offered to shoot her. Ten hours before our wedding--I made a mockery of her dying wish. Five hours before we were going to say our vows--I promised I'd never love her. One hour before I said I do--I vowed I'd never shed a tear over her death. But the minute we were pronounced man and wife--I knew. I'd only use my gun to protect her. I'd give my life for hers. I'd cry. And I would, most definitely, lose myself, to a dying girl---a girl who by all accounts should have never been mine in the first place. I always believed the mafia would be my end game--poisoning my heart, while it claimed my soul. I could have never imagined. It would be my redemption. Or the beginning of something beautiful. The beginning of her. The end of us.

Rachel Van Dyken - Shame
I ​ran away from him, ran away from the memories and tried to start over. A fresh start at college was just what I needed and for a while it worked, unitl my past began to catch up with me. I'd always been the party girl, the one you could count on for a good time, but it was all a lie. I so wanted to be the beauty in the story--when really I knew I was always the beast. When guys touched me...I felt nothing but pain. When they kissed me...I felt nothing but rage. Until he walked into my life. I wasn't prepared to fall for someone--ever. My scars were too deep, the wounds too raw. But he offered me peace, he offered me security and love. I should have known it was just another lie--I should have known that falling in love with my professor was a bad idea. But I was powerless to stop myself from falling. And he was powerless to catch me. You think you know my story, but you don't....after all everyone has Shame in their lives--you're about to know mine.
