Where there’s smoke there’s fire, and no one knows this better than New Jersey bounty hunter Stephanie Plum. Dead bodies are showing up in shallow graves on the empty construction lot of Vincent Plum Bail Bonds. No one is sure who the killer is, or why the victims have been offed, but what is clear is that Stephanie’s name is on the killer’s list. Short on time to find evidence proving the killer’s identity, Stephanie faces further complications when her family and friends decide that it’s time for her to choose between her longtime off-again-on-again boyfriend, Trenton cop Joe Morelli, and the bad boy in her life, security expert Ranger. Stephanie’s mom is encouraging Stephanie to dump them both and choose a former high school football star who’s just returned to town. Stephanie’s sidekick, Lula, is encouraging Stephanie to have a red-hot boudoir “bake-off.” And Grandma Bella, Morelli’s old-world grandmother, is encouraging Stephanie to move to a new state when she puts “the eye” on Stephanie. With a cold-blooded killer after her, a handful of hot men, and a capture list that includes a dancing bear and a senior citizen vampire, Stephanie’s life looks like it’s about to go up in smoke.

Hit the beach with three funny, fast-paced summer reads, including a smokin’ hot Stephanie Plum novel—now in a special ebook bundle from #1 New York Times bestselling author Janet Evanovich! In THE HEIST, Evanovich teams up with Lee Goldberg, bestselling author and television writer for Monk, for the first adventure in an electrifying series featuring Kate O’Hare, an FBI agent who always gets her man, and Nicolas Fox, a fearless con artist who lives for the chase. In WICKED BUSINESS, Lizzy Tucker’s once normal life as a pastry chef in Salem, Massachusetts, turns upside down as she battles both sinister forces and an inconvenient attraction to her unnaturally talented but off-limits partner, Diesel. And in SMOKIN’ SEVENTEEN, Stephanie Plum is under pressure to choose between her on-again-off-again boyfriend, Trenton cop Joe Morelli, and the bad boy in her life, security expert Ranger. With a cold-blooded killer after her, a handful of hot men, and a capture list that includes a dancing bear and a senior citizen vampire, Stephanie’s life looks like it’s about to go up in smoke. Also includes excerpts from The Chase, Wicked Charms, and Explosive Eighteen as well as a preview of the first book in Janet Evanovich’s upcoming Knight and Moon series, Curious Minds, with co-author Phoef Sutton!

Everyone will be eager for the next book in the series.”—Associated Press “[The Fox and O’Hare series mixes] the humor from Evanovich and Goldberg’s books with the intricate cons seen in the best episodes of Mission: Impossible.”—Library Journal

As Station Seventeen's rookie, Luke Slater knows his fire and EMS training will be both rigorous and risky, but he never imagined having to partner up with the one woman he wants to keep at arm's length most of all. Quinn Copeland is as wide-open as Luke is reserved. He has no interest in letting the sweet and sexy paramedic rock his hard-earned control. But the need for composure becomes the need to survive when they find themselves in the crosshairs of a brutal gang leader on their first shift together.Paramedic Quinn Copeland's station mates aren't just her friends. They're her family. She'd do anything to keep them safe--including reluctantly trusting her impossible-to-read, impossibly gorgeous new partner with the one thing she holds close. As the passion between Luke and Quinn goes from a slow burn to a sizzle, their steps grow more and more dangerous, both in the fire house and out. Can they outwit a cold-blooded killer and face the fears that could cost them everything? Or are they in too deep?

"In one moment, with one touching performance, Fantasia captured the hearts of millions of American Idol fans. Her powerful voice and independent style made her an overnight sensation. But life wasn't always sensational for Fantasia. At 17, she was just another girl who dropped out of high school, a baby on her hip. Her life and her plans for her future seemed to be going nowhere. But Fantasia was raised with the kind of faith that she needed to rethink her choices and redirect her life. In this book, she offers an emotional look at her rise to the top and the life-altering revelations she came to during her lowest moments along the way. With a spirit as strong as her voice, she speaks with heartfelt, humorous frankness about what it takes to get off thewrong path and onto the right one.--From publisher description."--From source other than the Library of Congress
