  4. NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER In this pulse-pounding and thrillingly sensual novel, Lara Adrian returns to the mesmerizing world of the Midnight Breed, following new characters into a dark future where an uneasy peace can unravel into war and a great betrayal can mask an all-consuming love. Twenty years after the terror of First Dawn when mankind learned that vampires lived secretly among them the threat of violence reigns as the two species struggle to coexist. The only group preserving the fragile harmony is the Order, an elite cadre of Breed warriors dedicated to protecting humans and vampires alike. And in this precarious world of torn loyalties and shattered trust, Mira, a fiery squad captain, finds that every fight bears an intensely personal cost. Raised among the Order, Mira has always believed in the warrior s code of swift and even lethal justice. But the one thing she desires more than the Order s hard-won acceptance is Kellan Archer, a sexy but troubled Breed fighter. In love with him since childhood, Mira once broke through his tough exterior during an unexpected night of rapture, but the next day he mysteriously disappeared, never to return. Kellan didn t think he would ever see Mira again or have to confront the truth of why he left. After abandoning the Order years ago, he now leads a band of human rebels intent on carrying out their own vigilante rule of law. Yet a high-profile kidnapping assignment brings him face-to-face with the past he sought to avoid, and the striking woman he has tried desperately to forget.

  6. Every family has secrets that bind them together. A heart-rending story of a guesthouse keeper and his wife who attempt to start over, from devastatingly talented debut author Kali Napier. 1932. Ernie and Lily Hass, and their daughter, Girlie, have lost almost everything in the Depression; all they have keeping their small family together are their secrets. Abandoning their failing wheat farm and small-town gossip, they make a new start on the west coast of Australia where they begin to build a summer guesthouse. But forming new alliances with the locals isn’t easy. Into the Hasses’ new life wanders Lily’s shell-shocked brother, Tommy, after three harrowing years on the road following his incarceration. Tommy is seeking answers that will cut to the heart of who Ernie, Lily and Girlie really are. Inspired by the author’s own family history, The Secrets at Ocean’s Edge is a haunting, memorable and moving tale of one family’s search for belonging. Kali Napier breathes a fever-pitch intensity into the story of these emotionally fragile characters as their secrets are revealed with tragic consequences. If you loved The Light Between Oceans and The Woolgrower’s Companion you will love this story. ‘One of the best books I’ve read this year. I absolutely loved it. Totally gripping, beautifully written, the characterisation is superb. An absolutely stunning book. I am still thinking about it.’ MELISSA ASHLEY, author of The Birdman’s Wife ’This beautifully written, intense tale of a family’s heart-rending search for belonging is Kali Napier’s debut novel, but there’s a sophistication to her storytelling. The secrets of the title unfurl slowly with hints dripping through every page.’ Australian Woman’s Weekly ’Napier has blended fact and fiction to great effect, writing with a raw emotional power that at times, is devastating.’ Better Reading ‘Kali Napier may be a debut author but she is certainly no novice. The Secrets at Ocean’s Edge is an incredible novel, a story layered with all of the hallmarks that make for an Australian classic.’ THERESA SMITH ’If you enjoyed similar recent Australian novels such as Joy Rhoades’ The Woolgrower’s Companion, Lucy Treloar’s Salt Creek, Lisa Bigelow’s We That Are Left, and Rosalie Ham’s The Dressmaker, then this is definitely for you.’ Historical Novel Society
