Linda Howard - Nyugat szép leánya
"A föld különlegesen szép volt. Talán épp ezért választották lakóhelyüknek az első emberi lények ezt a földrészt. Huszonötezer évvel és néhány évszázaddal később Új-Mexikó lett a neve. Ez a név nem adta vissza a hideg, kristálytiszta tavakkal tarkított északi havasi erdők varázsát, amelyek a hullámzó préribe simultak, sem a magányos hegyormokat. A levegő olyan tiszta volt, hogy jótékonyan megnyugtatta a szemet és az elmét, és a napnyugta mindig színesre festette az eget." Victoria Waverlyt, a nemesi származású, hamisítatlan úrihölgyet a polghárháború folyamán elszegényedett szülei egy jobb élet reményében hozzáadják egy dúsgazdag farmerhez, aki azt hiszi, ily módon maga is úriemberré válik. Erre, természetesen semmi esélye, hisz kulturálatlan, minden emberi érzésből kivetkőzött alak, s emberei sem különbek nála. Közéjük érkezik meg Victoria, akinek még húgát és unokahúgát is meg kell óvnia a rájuk leselkedő ezer veszélytől. Mit ér a puszta női büszkeség és becsület a fegyverek ellenében? Milyen is a cowboyokkal, indiánokkal teli "romantikus" Vadnyugat női szemmel?! Linda Howard történelmi tintába mártotta tollát. Ha elolvasta, meséljen róla másoknak, vagy álmodozzon a semmibe meredve, vagy egyszerűen sóhajtson egy nagyot. Én megtettem mindhármat."

What would make the perfect man? That's the delicious topic heating up the proceedings at a certain table of professional women at their favorite restaurant, Ernie's, tonight: Mr. Perfect. What qualities would he have? Would he be tall, dark, and handsome? Caring and warmhearted -- or will just muscular do? Jaine Bright and her three girlfriends start off with the basics -- he'd be faithful and reliable, the responsible type, with a great sense of humor. But as the conversation picks up momentum, so do the quartet's requirements for Mr. Perfect -- and they write down a tongue-in-cheek checklist that's both funny and racy. The next thing they know, the List, as it has come to be called, spreads like wildfire throughout their company and sizzles along e-mail lines. And it doesn't stop there: the List becomes an overnight sensation, grabbing the interest of local newspapers and television coverage. No one expected this avalanche of attention for something that began as a joke among friends. And the joke turns deadly serious when one of the four women is murdered... The prime suspect in the case is the victim's boyfriend, who was one of a number of men who found the List sexist and offensive. But an impenetrable alibi gets him off the hook. Now, with the help of Jaine's neighbor, an unpredictable police detective, the puzzle must be solved -- and time is running out as a deadly stalker targets the three remaining friends. Now, knowing whom to trust and whom to love is a matter of survival -- as the dream of Mr. Perfect becomes a chilling nightmare. Putting her "trademark darkly sensual style" (Booklist) into high gear, New York Times bestselling author Linda Howard creates a tour de force of passion and suspense in this electrifying new page-turner, and proves that appearances can be deceiving -- and deadly.

Jina Modell works in Communications for a paramilitary organization, and she really likes it. She likes the money, she likes the coolness factor—and it was very cool, even for Washington, DC. She liked being able to kick terrorist butts without ever leaving the climate-controlled comfort of the control room. But when Jina displays a really high aptitude for spatial awareness and action, she’s reassigned to work as an on-site drone operator in the field with one of the GO-teams, an elite paramilitary unit. The only problem is she isn’t particularly athletic, to put it mildly, and in order to be fit for the field, she has to learn how to run and swim for miles, jump out of a plane, shoot a gun...or else be out of a job. Team leader Levi, call sign Ace, doesn’t have much confidence in Jina—who he dubbed Babe as soon as he heard her raspy, sexy voice—making it through the rigors of training. The last thing he needs is some tech geek holding them back from completing a dangerous, covert operation. In the following months, however, no one is more surprised than he when Babe, who hates to sweat, begins to thrive in her new environment, displaying a grit and courage that wins her the admiration of her hardened, battle-worn teammates. What’s even more surprising is that the usually very disciplined GO-team leader can’t stop thinking about kissing her smart, stubborn mouth…or the building chemistry and tension between them. Meanwhile, a powerful Congresswoman is working behind the scenes to destroy the GO-teams, and a trap is set to ambush Levi’s squad in Syria. While the rest of the operatives set off on their mission, Jina remains at the base to control the surveillance drone, when the base is suddenly attacked with explosives. Thought dead by her comrades, Jina escapes to the desert where, brutally tested beyond measure, she has to figure out how to stay undetected by the enemy and make it to her crew in time before they’re exfiltrated out of the country. But Levi never leaves a soldier behind, especially the brave woman he’s fallen for. He’s bringing back the woman they left behind, dead or alive.

And while those who felt Carrie’s wrath are now smiling at her demise, Jaclyn refuses to celebrate tragedy, especially since she finds herself in the shadow of suspicion. Assigned to the case, Detective Eric Wilder finds that there’s too much evidence pointing toward too many suspects. Compounding his problems is Jaclyn, with whom he shared one deeply passionate night before Carrie’s death.

And this time the target is not a bride but one particularly irresistible wedding planner, unaware of a killer’s vow.
