    Gates of Paradise (A Blue Bloods Novel)
    Schuyler Van Alen is running out of time. The Dark Prince of Hell is storming the Gates of Paradise, intent on winning the heavenly throne for good. This time he has his greatest angels by his side, Abbadon and Azrael-Jack and Mimi Force, as they are known in the coven. Or so he thinks. When Lucifer assigns Jack and Mimi the tasks of killing their true loves, the Force twins' secret vow to defeat the Dark Prince once and for all will face the ultimate test. How far will Mimi and Jack go to conceal their true loyalties? Meanwhile, former vampire Bliss Llewellyn has joined forces with Lawson, the greatest wolf of the underworld, to free his people from their imprisonment in Hell. As they struggle against seemingly impossible odds, an ancient message, woven into the very fabric of time, reveals just how much depends on the success of their mission. Only Schuyler, the key to the Gate of Promise, has the power to unleash Lucifer's army of Silver Bloods. When she is taken captive and delivered straight to Hell, Schuyler must make an unthinkable choice-the same one the angel Michael was forced to make in Florence so long ago. Will she find the strength to do what he could not? The epic, heartbreaking Blue Bloods series comes to a close with this final novel about staggering courage, unbearable sacrifice, and the immortality of true love.

    Crazy Hot
    Back in the Hamptons for a final summer, the sun is hot, but the drama’s hotter for Mara, Eliza, and Jacqui in the conclusion to the Beach Lane series. Mara, Eliza, and Jacqui thought they would be spending the summer apart, but when Eliza’s stepmom is in desperate need of a nanny, Eliza calls for reinforcements. And so back to the Hamptons it is… Mara’s sworn off romance, and focusing instead on writing a book about being an au pair and an It Girl. But she keeps getting distracted by her ex, Ryan. Eliza is quickly becoming a fashion star—but her relationship with Jeremy is also moving at breakneck speed. Are things moving too fast for her to handle? And Jacqui is just trying to do her job so she can pay for NYU, though it’s hard when an Australian photographer is encouraging her to quit and become a model. Will she take a risk? However these girls survive their craziest, hottest summer yet, one thing’s for sure: The Hamptons wouldn’t be the same without them. The Beach Lane series is created by Alloy Entertainment, producer of bestselling teen and middle grade series including The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, Gossip Girl, The Vampire Diaries, and Pretty Little Liars. Originally published as part of the Au Pairs series.

    In the Hamptons for their third summer, Mara, Eliza, and Jacqui do their best not to get burned on the beach—or in love—in Book 3 of the Beach Lane series. It’s another summer in the Hamptons for Mara, Eliza, and Jacqui—and babysitting is officially on the back burner. Mara is the new It Girl of the Hamptons, writing a column about the local nightlife. She has a pass to every hot club, but all her boyfriend Ryan wants to do is stay home and cuddle. Eliza is in relationship bliss with Jeremy, but her hectic fashion internship is limiting their time together. Can they make it work? Jacqui has decided to forego the no boys rules, especially when three dot.com billionaires move in next door and vie for her affection. The girls seem to have it all this summer. But as all good Hamptons girls know, looks can be deceiving…and sometimes when the sun shines, it scorches. The Beach Lane series is created by Alloy Entertainment, producer of bestselling teen and middle grade series including The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, Gossip Girl, The Vampire Diaries, and Pretty Little Liars. Originally published as part of the Au Pairs series.
