Aiden Wyatt Raine.
Giving in to him. Loving him. Marrying him.

Aria’s reality bears no resemblance to her lifelong plan of remaining single and detached. As a matter of fact, her world is a direct contrast to what she thought she wanted—she’s the mother of an adorable baby boy and the wife of billionaire business mogul, Aiden Raine. Having buried scars of her past, Aria’s living the happily ever after she once believed to only exist within the pages of a fairytale. Aria’s life appears to be perfect, yet a part of her feels it’s all a dream and fears what’s waiting for her when she awakens.

Aria Cason Raine.
Finding her. Rescuing her. Marrying her.

Aiden’s privileged life is not without challenges, most of which he faces and overcomes without batting an eye, but his greatest challenge to date, is Aria Cason. From the initial glance, he knew she was the one he’d claim as his own. He’s captivated by a wife he can’t get enough of and a son who centers his universe. He finally has it all—a family he holds closer to his heart than anything else. And as Aiden prepares to reveal the details of an unsettled vendetta, he holds on even tighter.
Aria and Aiden were starting a story that would lead them to forever, but their world starts to unravel when Aiden pulls the trigger on a plot that’s been brewing for months, a blow that not only rocks his new marriage, but also rips through the entire Raine family. What happens when the family whose polished veneer finally started to ring true, spirals into even more disarray?

Determined to keep their promises, Aiden and Aria fight to recover from Aiden’s bout with revenge, but their resilience is short-lived when the past and present collide, resulting in a tragedy that threatens to permanently alter the dynamic of their relationship.

Aria and Aiden knew they would face adversity, but neither of them expected the heartache and loss that could leave their marriage– dangling in the balance.

What started as uncontrollable lust became the story of two lives, two hearts and one soul, but can the couple who’ve so intricately entwined their hearts, uphold their vows of now until forever?

Forever Touched brings a heart wrenchingly poignant conclusion to the passionate love story that is The Untouched Series.

The Darkest Corner (2017)

Liliana Hart – Gravediggers Series

Book 01 – The Darkest Corner (5/23/2017)

╰☆╮

New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author Liliana Hart’s first book in her suspenseful Gravediggers series, featuring an elite group of mysterious men who might be dead to the world, but are also tasked with saving it—and no one can ever know.

The Gravediggers aren’t exactly what they seem. They’re the most elite of the world’s fighting forces—and all they have in common is that they’ve been betrayed by the countries they’ve died for. Because they are dead. To their country, their military, and their families.

Sometimes the dead do rise…

Solomon Lange is a dead man walking. A former black ops agent, he was disavowed and stripped of all honor before being recruited as a Gravedigger. But his honor and good name no longer matter, because no one knows he’s alive, and he’ll never get the recognition he deserves. His mission is simple: save the world or die trying. And for God’s sake, don’t ever fall in love. That’s a rule punishable by death. The kind of death a man can’t be brought back from.

Tess Sherman is the only mortician in Last Stop, Texas. She has no idea how Solomon Lange ended up in her funeral home, but she’ll eat her hat if he’s only a funeral home assistant. Solomon is dangerous, deadly, and gorgeous. And she knows her attraction to him can only end in heartache.

Solomon is on a mission to stop the most fatal terror attack the world has ever known—what’s known as The Day of Destiny—a terrorist’s dream. But when he discovers Tess has skills he can use to stop them, he has to decide if he can trust her with secrets worth dying for. And, most important, he has to decide if he can trust her with his heart.

Even with the warning from Dallas that once he claims her, he will come for her wherever she is, Melissa leaves. It’s now just a matter of time before he makes good on his promise.
