SOUTHERN ROMANTIC SUSPENSE COLLECTION by Carmen DeSousa

The stories in the Southern Romantic-Suspense collection all have a slight connection to each other so you can read each book individually — without a cliffhanger — then continue the journey and meet new protagonists with different issues and tragedies to overcome.

Novels included in this set:

She Belongs to Me – In this tightly woven tale of love, possession, and secrets, police detective Jordan Monroe finds his wife unconscious, clinging to life.

Split Decisions – Sometimes you want something so badly you are willing to abandon everything you’ve ever known–including yourself.

Land of the Noonday Sun – When two strangers have nothing left but their dreams, they must forge a relationship in Nantahala, North Carolina, a small town known as Land of the Noonday Sun.

When Noonday Ends – When a new attorney accepts a pro-bono case of an abused woman suspected of attempted murder, he ends up with more than he bargained for. She’s the ex-wife of one of the oldest and wealthiest families in Ashville, and her in-laws will stop at nothing to conceal family secrets — even murder.

TERMS OF TEMPTATION by Lorrie Farrelly

HISTORICAL ROMANCE

Kinley’s determination to defend herself and the animals she loves will make her Bram’s unlikely ally. They are irresistibly drawn to one another, but when her passion and spirit clash with his tangled conflict of duty and desire, not only their hearts will be in danger, but their very lives as well.

Tender and touching, full of drama and detail, it brings all the emotion and adventure, suspense and romance readers have come to expect from author LORRIE FARRELLY.
