During a raid to a Comanche camp he rescues Anna, a tall warrior woman. The two become friends and comrades, their fates forever intertwined. They find themselves together in the prairies of 19th century Texas, the bordellos of Civil War-era New Orleans, to Prohibition in the 1920s, the Great Depression, and the vastness of space.
But will they survive hardships through history, the enmity of their southern neighbors and the Civil War, and be able to return to his home planet to exact his revenge?

So when handyman Caleb Hunter stops by for a haircut, he’s the answer to her prayers…though her son isn’t as thrilled to have him hanging around. Old wounds have kept Caleb from returning to Redemption, but when he receives word of his mother’s unexpected death, guilt and regret bring him home for good. Lauren excites him like no woman ever has, but she’s a package deal, and he’s not sure he’s prepared to take on a ready-made family.
A FAIR TO REMEMBER – Ready for a nice, quiet life in small town USA, reformed gang member Wes Carter feels Redemption is the perfect place to relocate his financial business for reasons more than just the name. Tara Russell has decided to add some excitement to her life and get a little wild–no matter how uncomfortable it makes her or her overprotective family.They meet at the local fair one warm summer night and discover opposites attract for all the right reasons. Add a dash of Sugar in the form of an incorrigible Great Dane, and it’s destined to be A Fair To Remember.

Financially, he’s a godsend, but emotionally he’s athreat to the barricade she’s built around her heart. Heir to a vast fortune, Jacob Spalding flees L.A. for Wisconsin to escape the scandalous nightmare his life has become. Now known as Matt Jacobs, he settles in to small town life and soon finds himself infatuated with the coffee shop owner across the street. Too bad the infuriating woman is as contrary as she is beautiful.
GROUNDS FOR CHANGE – Charlie Russell lived with a secret for years, but guilt has pushed him to the breaking point. He meets psychologist Dana McClain and feels an instant connection that has nothing to do with his Great Dane, Sugar, spilling coffee down her shirt. Dana switched to counseling animals because she has a history of becoming too emotionally involved with her clients. She figures she’s safe helping Charlie with Sugar’s issues, until he reveals his secret and asks for help. She tells herself it’s all about the dog, not the guy, but history has a way of repeating itself.
HOME IS WHERE THE HEART IS – Heiress Melinda Spalding is stunned when her brother moves to the Midwest, and soon follows. Discovering she likes”Mayberry” is as shocking as her attraction to the local mechanic. But L.A. is where she belongs–or is home truly where the heart is?

She hides her desolation from everyone-especially the town veterinarian, whose three-year-old is a painful reminder. RickWilde liked Allie back in high school, but life took them in different directions. Now a single parent, his interest in Allie is renewed despite the fact her shoulder is colder than the bitter winter wind. Brought together by an orphaned kitten, Allie is helpless to resist Lukas’ impish innocence and Rick’s charm. Does she risk her heart on an impossible dream, or will Rick’s desire for more kids devastate their future?
A Cutthroat Business: #1 (Savannah Martin Mysteries)
by Jenna Bennett
Everyone has warned new-minted realtor Savannah Martin that real estate is a cutthroat business. But Savannah doesn’t think she’s supposed to take the warning literally … until an early morning phone call sends her to an empty house on the ‘bad’ side of town, where she finds herself standing over the butchered body of a competitor, face to face with the boy her mother always warned her about.
Rafe Collier is six feet three inches of testosterone and trouble; tall, dark, and dangerous, with a murky past and no future—not the kind of guy a perfect Southern Belle should want to tangle with. In any way. But wherever Savannah turns, there he is, and making no bones about what he wants from her.
Now Savannah must figure out who killed real estate queen Brenda Puckett, make a success of her new career, and avoid getting killed—or kissed—by Rafe, all before the money in her savings account runs out and she has to go back to selling make-up at the mall.
