However, it is her talent for translation that brings her into contact with Alexander Banebridge, or "Bane," a man who equally attracts and aggravates her. When Bane hires Lydia to translate a seemingly innocuous collection of European documents, she hesitantly agrees, only to discover she is in over her head.
Just as Bane's charm begins to win her over, Lydia learns he is driven by a secret campaign against some of the most dangerous criminals on the East Coast, compelled by his faith and his past.

Surrounded by electrical fences, most kids try to survive the Farms by turning on each other…
And when trust is a thing of the past, escape is nearly impossible.
Lily and her twin sister Mel have a plan. Though Mel can barely communicate, her autism helps her notice things no one else notices—like the portion of electrical fence that gets turned off every night. Getting across won’t be easy, but as Lily gathers what they need to escape, a familiar face appears out of nowhere, offering to help…
Carter was a schoolmate of Lily’s in the Before. Managing to evade capture until now, he has valuable knowledge of the outside world. But like everyone on the Farm, Carter has his own agenda, and he knows that behind the Ticks is an even more dangerous threat to the human race...

  1. Sono felicissima per Kresley Cole, anche se, vista la doppia nomination, mi ha stupido che abbia vinto con Shadow's Claim e non con Lothaire, che a mio parere è nettamente superiore! Dei libri premiati ho letto appunto solo quello della Cole, che spero venga tradotto, soprattutto per completezza della serie degli Immortal After Dark, visto che pur essendo uno spin off fa diversi riferimenti alla serie principale.
    Sarebbe effettivamente molto bello se una manifestazione del genere ci fosse anche da noi, un bel coronamento al lavoro delle nostre autrici italiane (con però un premio anche per il miglior libro estero, visto quanto ancora importiamo come romance.)

    1. Eh, ma è questo il nostro intento...farvi usare il vostro inglese,cara Filomena! ( Sempre che a scuola non abbiate studiato francese ;o) In ogni caso usa il traduttore google settato su italiano che trovi sulla banda laterale sinistra del blog dopo la box Le Ricette del cuore...non una traduzione perfetta, ma passabile!
