House of Shadows
The house on Sunset Boulevard has witnessed everything: from the infamous murder-suicide of a ’50s starlet and her lover, to the drug-fueled commune in the ’60s, to the anguish of its present owner, Jilly Meyer, who is struggling to preserve the house and what’s left of her wounded family.
Man of Shadows
Coltrane is a liar, a con man and a threat to everything Jilly holds dear. He is also her hated father’s right-hand man, a gorgeous, loathsome snake who doesn’t care whom he uses to get what he wants. And he’s made it clear he wants Jilly. But the question is, what does he want her for?
Shadows at Sunset
Somehow Jilly has to stop Coltrane from destroying everything she cherishes. Including her own vulnerable heart. And the only way to do that is to uncover what Coltrane is really up to, and that could mean upsetting the explosive secrets of the past.

Stuart (Shadow Lover) crafts another steaming suspense novel with this tale of ghosts, revenge and lust in Southern California. Jilly Meyer single-handedly holds together one of L.A.'s most dysfunctional families, mothering her adult siblings, Dean and Rachel-Ann. Despite pressure from their villainous multimillionaire father, Jackson Meyer, Jilly won't abandon her siblings or their crumbling Sunset Boulevard mansion, which he wants to have demolished. La Casa de Sombras (House of Shadows) was the scene of a notorious Hollywood murder-suicide in the '50s, and glamorous ghosts still haunt the lonely place, seen only by fragile, recovering substance abuser Rachel-Ann. Enter Coltrane, a solitary, enigmatic, drop-dead gorgeous man who manages Jackson's legal affairs. Convinced Jackson murdered his mother years ago, Coltrane is bent on revenge, sabotaging Jackson's illegal business dealings and planning to seduce one of his daughters. The sexual tension between stubborn, long-legged Jilly and Coltrane is palpable, and the secondary romance between Rachel-Ann and her long-lost love is endearing. Incest, sex, multiple murders, sex, betrayal, sex--it's the usual enthralling mix fans expect from Stuart, arguably romantic suspense's most popular novelist.
