It is 1988 and teenager Whitney Forbes thought her biggest problem was surviving high school and determining if there was more to handsome Reid Wallace than just his looks and popularity. She was wrong. Her problems were about to get a lot more complicated.
Whitney always knew she was special. But when she discovers she is more “special” than she ever imagined, surviving another school day outside her posh D.C. suburb takes on a whole new meaning. Caught in the middle of a CIA plot and her undeniable magnetic attraction to Reid, she will need to decide who she can trust and what it means to become the Sundial…before she risks her heart and an alarming plan goes into motion.
Authors Fruzzetti and Pearsall believe YA Saves and Sundial is an epic adventure full of romantic intrigue that questions the bonds of love and trust as well as social and economic issues. It unflinchingly dares its characters to overcome adversity to survive and nothing is quite as it seems in this character driven suspense that has a high intensity ending!

The first body is in Singapore, on a bed in an empty suite in the Marriott Hotel. The second in Bangkok, in a seedy apartment close to the American embassy. Both women. Both Americans. Both beaten viciously and shot in the head. Both stripped naked and lewdly displayed.
The FBI says it’s terrorism, but the whispers on the street are that a serial killer is stalking American women across Asia.
Inspector Samuel Tay of Singapore CID is something of a reluctant policeman. He’s a little overweight, a little lonely, a little cranky, and he smokes way too much. Thinking back, he can’t even remember why he became a police detective in the first place. He talks about quitting all the time, but he hasn’t. Because the thing is, he’s very, very good at what he does.
When bodies of American women start turning up, Singapore CID calls in Inspector Tay. It’s a high profile case, and he’s the best they have.
Then why is it, Tay soon begins to wonder, that nobody seems to want him to find the women’s killer? Not the FBI, not the American ambassador, not even his bosses at CID.
When international politics takes over a murder case, the truth is the next victim.

Meet the Charons. They’re your typical dysfunctional family of four of the world’s best assassins. Father Michael is the former head of a covert arm of the CIA that did so much “wet work” it was code named “Water Works.” Mother Valerie is a legendary femme fatale whose steamy sexuality has been luring men to their demise for nearly three decade.
Then there are the twins, Seth and Olivia. While barely into their twenties, they have already delivered on several high-profile contracts. Seth is very much his father’s son and is calm and calculating. Olivia, on the other hand, has been out of control since she reached puberty. With her Sports Illustrated Swimsuit body and the face of an angel, combined with lethal martial arts skills, she is a force to be reckoned with.
In this episode, Olivia has reluctantly agreed to spend one month training with the most feared assassin of the last one thousand years, Master Rōshi Dorje. Chaffing under Rōshi’s supervision she jumps at the chance to join a security team to protect a member of a secret organization known as the High Council.
Olivia soon discovers, instead of being part of primary security detail, her job will be babysitting the rebellious teenaged granddaughter of the Council member. Just as pretty as Olivia and just as out of control, when these two lock horns all hell breaks loose.
