The last kiss goodbye: a novel

By Robards, Karen

Publishing Date: [2013?]

Classification: FIC

Call Number: FIC

"When New York Times bestselling author Karen Robards brought her irresistible brand of hot passion and chilling suspense to the paranormal romance scene with The Last Victim, it was just the beginning. Now her all-new series cranks up the deadly danger and intense desire to the next level, as sexy serial killer hunter Charlotte Stone returns to action in her thrilling second adventure. THE LAST KISS GOODBYE Dr. Charlotte "Charlie" Stone has dedicated her career as a psychiatrist to exploring the darkest territory of all: the hearts and minds of serial killers. It's a job she's uniquely suited for, thanks to the secret talent that gives her an uncanny edge--Charlie can see dead people, whose tormented spirits cry out to her for the justice only she can provide. This blessing--or curse--gives Charlie the power to hunt down and catch madmen and murderers. It's also turned her love life upside down by drawing her into a hopelessly passionate relationship with the lingering ghost of charismatic bad boy Michael Garland. But there's little time for romance with her supernatural suitor when murder comes pounding at Charlie's door in the form of a terrified young woman fleeing a homicidal maniac. Saving her life places Charlie squarely in the cross-hairs of a sadistic predator nicknamed "the Gingerbread Man," notorious for manipulating his victims like pawns in a deadly chess game. And now the queen this psychopath's bent on capturing is Charlie. Refusal to play will only put more innocent lives in danger. Matching wits with this cunningly twisted opponent will require all of Charlie's training and expert skills. But even with her devilish "guardian angel"--not to mention her favorite flesh-and-blood Fed, Tony Bartoli--watching her beautiful back, the Gingerbread Man's horrifying grin might be the last thing Charlie ever sees. Praise for Karen Robards "One of the most popular voices in women's fiction."--Newsweek "Draw a line between two extremely popular genres, mysteries and romance novels, and in the middle you will find the bestselling Robards. She merges the two worlds like no one else, deftly interlacing plot and passion."--Albany Times Union Praise for The Last Victim "[An] exceptional storyteller. Leave it to Robards to deliver the start of a series that is distinctive and unforgettable!"--RT Book Reviews "Excellent. This story is going to haunt you."--Pittsburgh Post-Gazette "Thrilling. a fun and sexy read."--Booklist"--

Come to me: stories

By Bloom, Amy

Publishing Date: 1994, c1993

Classification: FIC

Call Number: SS

Though Bloom remains a practicing therapist, she's given up her day job on Yale's clinical psychology faculty to concentrate on writing. Readers who've sampled her work will applaud her decision. For some of these characters, sanity itself is problematic, but most are preoccupied with the more mundane challenges of love and lust, past and present, making contact and being understood. Half the stories in Come to Me are pieces of a jigsaw puzzle: "Three Stories" follows David Silverstein from his disrupted Canadian childhood ("Hyacinths") to marital crisis ("The Sight of You") and, years later, family tragedy ("Silver Water"); in "Henry and Marie," Silverstein's sexual rival and his wife move to North Carolina and continue their searches for love and happiness (in "Fault Lines" and "Only You," respectively). With a perceptive eye and a sure hand, Bloom economically captures the troubled lives of "normal" people and the "normal" lives of troubled people. Come to Me is a valuable acquisition in libraries where short fiction commands a following. ~--Mary Carroll, Booklist
