If you’re not beautiful, you are dead.

More Than Anything by Natasha Anders

Two lovers strive to trade a grim past for a bright future in this story of bittersweet yearning.

Tina Jenson belongs to the same social stratum as Harris Chapman, but he’s out of her league—at least that’s what she thinks before they jump in bed together. It’s the perfect night, but when she overhears crude, hurtful comments the next morning, she can’t get away fast enough.

Ten years later, Tina’s life is a mess. That night with Harris didn’t just hurt her feelings; it started a cascade of disappointment and heartbreak. Every time she bumps into Harris, her heart twists inside out. She still wants him, but she’s harboring a painful secret from their night together that she’s not ready to reveal.

Crossed signals, high-society whispers, and shame have kept Tina and Harris apart for years, but deep down, they’re hungry for each other and eager to write their own rules. Can they let go of the past and find their way back to each other, or are the barriers between them too high and too strong?

Ten Swedes Must Die by Martin Österdahl

How can he forget the past when it’s out to kill him?

Former special-ops soldier and now an analyst for the think tank Vektor, Max Anger would kill to move on from the scars of his past—if only for the sake of Pashie, his girlfriend and fellow operative, who wants out of the battle zone. For them, a normal life is just one more dangerous uncertainty. Especially now that evil is hitting closer to home. Sofia Karlsson of the Swedish police wants Max’s help in a high-profile and high-stakes murder investigation: the hunt for a serial killer stalking the streets of Stockholm, who’s eliminating his victims in gruesome and tantalizingly clever ways.

When Max discovers his connection to two of the crime scenes, his investigation uncovers what could be the most shameful episode in Sweden’s history. The deeper he gets, the harder it becomes to distance himself from the dark sins of the past—and to secure a future with the woman he loves. For Max, and for the killer, the countdown to a terrifying end begins.
