Picture Perfect

Picture Perfect


A Woman Determined to Rise Above Heartache and Ruin.

Alexis Morgan returned to New Orleans just after Hurricane Katrina devastated the city.  Determined to focus on rebuilding her interior decorating business and saving her home, Alex has no time for relationships.  She refuses to fall into the same trap that her mother fell into and become involved with a married man.  Then, the soon-to-be married Elliot Walker storms into her life, tempting her to forget the hard lessons she learned as a child.

A Man Determined to Prove Himself.

Businessman, Elliot Walker, is the youngest, and only adopted, son of a wealthy and prominent New Orleans family.  The Walkers’ natural children are models of Society and Elliot will do no less.  Once his older brother marries, Elliot knows their mother will push him to marry the woman she believes is perfect for him, a high-powered attorney with a thirst for money, power, and sex.  With six months to go before his wedding, Elliot hires Alex to redecorate his home.  Suddenly, keeping his mother happy by marrying Rachel, a woman he’s beginning to realize he barely knows isn’t as important as having Alex in his arms.  But Rachel intends to have it all and she’s willing to murder to get it.


Out of the devastation of Hurricane Katrina, secrets are revealed, relationships tested, and true love born.




Leslie C. Ferdinand and her mother, Shirley H. Ferdinand, have been writing together since 1991. Leslie is divorced and the mother of three daughters. She is Shirley’s only child. Under their pen name, Christine Holden, they sold five books to Berkley/Jove between 1998 and 2001. They are also the author of Wicked Allure. Picture Perfect is their first Liquid Silver Books release. They are currently hard at work on their next projects.

BTSemag Sneak Peek

A Feartured Sneak Peek:

Christmas Wishes by Mary Manners
Love comes full circle when a child’s Christmas wish arrives special delivery.
When attorney Riley Harper comes home to Maple Ridge following the death of his grandfather, the last thing he expects to find is Kaylee McKenna living in his grandparents’ guesthouse. Though he and Kaylee were once best friends, Riley cannot find it in his heart to forgive her for the death of his mother. His heart, full of bitterness and resentment, has room for little else.

Kaylee has no time to dwell on events of the past, especially where Riley’s concerned; she’s too busy raising her six-year-old niece, Rosie, and working as an ER nurse. With Christmas quickly approaching, her days are spent helping with charity events and filling the wishes on Rosie’s Christmas list.

But when Rosie’s father makes an unexpected visit, Kaylee must call on Riley’s legal expertise to ensure Rosie of a safe and secure future. Will Rosie’s special Christmas wish heal Riley’s damaged heart and bind the trio together as a forever-family?

Check out the reviews in the November BTS Book Reviews magazine. Here’s a tasty morsel of Tarah Scott’s Knight of Passion.
See full review in the issue.

A Knight of Passion

Author: Tarah Scott
Genre: Historical Erotica
Heat: 5
As whore for the Duchess of Arundel, Lady Riana Ellis keeps her sister safe from the
duke’s lascivious desires. Now the duchess demands that Riana murder the man
already sent to her bed.
Sir Bryant Cullen determines to have the duchess’ whore. Her land is a prize, but
it’s her secrets he wants. Once he knows what she knows, he will control the
powerful houses of Arundel. And she will be his.
Final Review
Certainly had that! And in droves. When Lady Rihanna first meets Sir Bryant it’s a
case of mistaken identity. She was forced into trying to kill a man in order to protect
her younger sister. The man was supposed to show up. Her Benefactress the
Duchess of Arundel was to watch and the devilish deed was to be done. Luckily for
the intended target, it wasn’t carried out and Bryant had an interesting time even if
there was unwanted company hidden away and watching everything unfold.
