Rita Morgan is a character in the Dexter Book Series and Dexter Comics.

She is a signicant character to the novel series, she is the woman who Dexter uses as a disguise to fit in to society. Dexter's "love" for Rita seems less sincere than it does in the television series; he only considers her a part of his disguise. She has had two children from a previous relationship, Astor and Cody, who were abused by their father. They are, by a humorous misunderstanding, engaged in Dearly Devoted Dexter and married at the end of Dexter in the Dark. It is never said in the books how they met. In the books, Rita is also something of an exercise fanatic; she and Dexter regularly go for 5k runs, long bike rides, or weightlifting sessions together. In the fifth book, Dexter is Delicious, Rita gives birth to a girl, Lily Anne. In the seventh book, Dexter's Final Cut, she is murdered by pedophile Robert Chase after she caught him molesting Astor.
