**Previously published as RUN TO ROME** She loved him and left him, but fate had other plans... Nine months ago, undercover detective, Ispettore Evalina Gallo, protected her heart the only way she knew how, never expecting to see her savior-turned-one-night-stand again. When he returns to Italia—now a person of interest in an investigation of a local organized crime family—her personal connection to the rugged American gets her assigned to the case. With his mother’s pleas ringing in his ears, Ben Sanders plans to retrieve a stolen bible his father shipped to Italy thirteen years ago, and then get out as fast as he can. But with the sudden arrival of the beautiful detective, he suspects his mother’s desire to right past wrongs might not be the whole truth. Now, less than twenty-four hours after entering the country, he’s getting shot at—again. In a race from Milan to Rome to find the precious book before anyone else, time is ticking for the one-time lovers. Attraction burns hotter than molten lava, but amid secrets and half-truths, they must move beyond past betrayals and trust each other if they have any hope of a future together.

Get your copy of BETRAYED today! “...a thrill ride of an adventure and suspense, topped off with sizzling chemistry between the leads.” ~ Helen, Amazon reviewer EXCERPT: “You said you don’t look back.” “I don’t,” he lied. Because clearly, he hadn’t been able to forget about her. “Is that a lesson learned from your parents when they stole from other people? Is that how they taught you to deal with your conscience?” Her accent had gotten much thicker, and while he recognized she was purposely goading him, he still stiffened at her words. The realization that they were the truth sucked the air from his lungs, and he pushed away from the wall. “How’d my parents get dragged into this?” “You wanted to talk about family. Let us talk.” “No. I don’t know what your problem is, but my conscience isn’t the one that seems to be having a problem right now.” When he moved to brush past her, she grabbed his arm, her fingers gripping his bicep like a vice. The restraint snapped his tenuous control and he rounded on her. Grasping her shoulders, he backed her against the wall. Confusion surfaced when she offered no resistance. He knew from experience she could lay him out flat in one move if she wanted. So what was her game? Hands flattened against his chest, she lifted her face to his. He swallowed hard at what he saw. Earlier she’d turned away from him. Now the heat in her gaze was pure invitation. Closing his eyes against the temptation did nothing to stop latent desire from rising up to engulf him. Things had been explosive between them in the past. He discovered nothing had changed when his body hardened in response. Desperation tightened his grasp. “What do you want from me?” Her fingers curled into his shirt, nails scraping his chest through the silk material. “I don’t know,” she whispered. Opening his eyes, he locked his gaze with hers and was surprised to see there was some truth to her words. Uncertainty was mixed with an intense hunger that matched his. Shallow breaths feathered his chin, raising his response level past rational thought. He slid his hands up to frame her face and lowered his head. “Is it this?” Giving her no chance to answer, he covered her mouth with his. He swept his tongue inside and there was nothing tentative about his possession or her response. She tasted better than he remembered; a unique blend of sweet and spice that could never be replicated. Breaking the kiss, he rasped, “Tell me, Eva. Is that what you want?” “Yes,” she breathed. ~~~ ITALY INTRIGUE SERIES Kidnapped, book 1 *Winner* 2012 Write Touch Readers' Award, romantic suspense as Lost in Italy Betrayed, book 2 Conned, book 3 Romantic suspense, sexy alpha male hero, betrayal, international romance series, Italian vacation romance, sexy cop heroine, beach reads, treasure hunt, one night stand romance, second chance romance, family betrayal, Milan Italy, Tuscany, Rome, on the run romance, redemption romance, bad boy romance, Stacey Joy Netzel, romance series, action adventure romance, action, adventure

George Packer

Millions of Iraqis, spanning the country's religious and ethnic spectrum, welcomed the overthrow of Saddam Hussein. But the mostly young men and women who embraced America's project so enthusiastically that they were prepared to risk their lives for it by aiding the U.S. forces constitute a small minority. On a cold, wet night in January 2007, George Packer met two such Iraqi men in the lobby of the Palestine Hotel, in central Baghdad to hear their story and those of other Iraqis working as translators and additional key personnel for the U.S. military and occupation authorities. They assumed that their perspective would be valuable to foreigners who knew little or nothing of Iraq. But instead of respect and gratitude, those who chose to help bridge the gap between the occupiers and the occupied were met with suspicion and hostility. They have been killed by insurgents and militias, ignored by U.S. officials, fired from their jobs without reason or recourse, and prevented from fleeing to the States for safety. Based on Packer's account in The New Yorker, Betrayed is a riveting and morally complex drama that explores in the Iraqis' own words the ways in which we have already abandoned them. It will have its world premiere in January 2008, off-Broadway at the Culture Project.

Robert K. Tanenbaum

From the dark fantasies of a sexual underworld to the darkest realities of a terrorist conspirator, New York Times bestselling author Robert K. Tanenbaum draws District Attorney Butch Karp deep into a combustible courtroom game of politics, power, lies, and murder. Awaiting trial in the Tombs, Manhattan’s infamous criminal detention complex, is Sharif Jabbar, the demagogic founder of a Harlem mosque. Charges against his terrorist attack on the city were dismissed once, and now that the Islam convert is being held on new allegations, New York District Attorney Roger “Butch” Karp is determined to bring him down. He faces formidable competition. Attorney Megan O’Dowd, a radical activist enthralled with revolutionary rhetoric, is going to the mat with the uncompromising conviction that Jabbar is being railroaded by the NYPD. Outside the criminal courts, Karp’s wife, Marlene Ciampi, is pursuing her own investigation. Allegations against indigent Manhattan street vendor Dirty Warren in the murder of society beauty Michelle Oakley don’t sit right with Marlene. Unfortunately her sole ally is religious vigilante David Grale, the charismatic but deranged leader of the Mole People. What Grale knows about city corruption snakes as far and wide as the dank honeycomb of the sewers and tunnels his destitute army calls home. Then Marlene discovers an unexpected— and ugly—parallel between the Oakley murder and the disappearance of another debutante: a treacherous underworld of upscale call girls and the price paid for indulging the wealthiest of men. As she explores these sordid truths, Butch Karp navigates his own tortured waters. What he soon discovers is that everyone, from the conspiratorial Jabbar and O’Dowd to the city’s most powerful, unimpeachable players—has a secret that could either set them free or cost them more than they ever feared. With more than twelve million copies of his books in print, Robert K. Tanenbaum continues to rivet readers to their seats with the kind of explosive thrillers that have made him “a writer worth knowing” (Washington Post ).

In January 1944, Vice Admiral Percy Walker Nelles was fired from his position as head of the Royal Canadian Navy. Betrayed reveals the true story behind the dismissal: a divisive power struggle between two elite groups within the RCN pitted the navy's regular officers against a small group of self-appointed spokesmen for the voluntary naval reserve. Threats of public scandal, mass insurrection, and political intimidation caused one of the worst breakdowns ever in Canadian civil-military relations. This fascinating investigation into the machinations of a divided navy tackles important questions of military professionalism, leadership, and identity.

Betrayed takes a new approach to the subject of global poverty, one that doesn't blame the West but also doesn't rely on the West for solutions. Betrayed puts the poor themselves at center stage, and shows how their entrepreneurial energies are shackled by political and social discrimination. When these shackles are removed, as is happening in places such as China and Vietnam, the poor are able to seize opportunities and drive wealth creation. Combining the latest research into poverty and state building with the author's personal observations drawn from years running businesses in the developing world, Betrayed explains how leaders in the developing world can build more inclusive societies and more equitable governments, thereby creating dynamic national economies and giving the poor the opportunity to accumulate the means and skills to control their own destinies. This refreshing new approach will appeal to business people who are fed up with reading critiques of global poverty that see capitalism as the problem, not the solution; people in both the global North and South who want to see attention focused not on Western aid but on what developing countries and their citizens can do to help themselves; scholars and practitioners in the development field who are looking for new, practicable ideas; and general readers who want accessible and engaging accounts of ordinary people struggling to overcome poverty.

Laurie H. Rogers

In America, more money is spent from all sources on K-12 education than on the U.S. Department of Defense. Why then are so many children suffering what amounts to educational malpractice? Why are they crippled for life with a substandard education and a life-altering vision of themselves as 'incapable'? Betrayed is a passionate, well-researched and frank accounting of how a failing public-education system continues to be forced on teachers and students, despite its nearly complete lack of supporting research or successful student outcomes. Betrayed roots out the self-styled 'stakeholders' whose personal, professional and financial interests are served by this failing system. It sympathizes with teachers_many of whom aren't allowed to do their jobs, yet are constantly threatened with removal for 'ineffectiveness' or 'insubordination.' Betrayed is an expose, but it's also a beacon of commonsense and hope. Through the 'Square of Effective Learning,' Betrayed offers practical methods for teachers, parents, advocates and legislators to stand up against this broken system, to effect positive change, and to ensure a good-quality education for all of our children.
