The summer of 1983—the era of big debt, big hair, and big dreams. Seventeen-year-old Kassandra Lawson is a Southern California girl, enjoying the summer before her high school senior year, thinking life is great.

But then tragic news arrives, sending Kee and her parents to Daltville, Arkansas, to a funeral and more news that turns all their lives upside down.

An unexpected and unwanted move to the humid, bug-infested south is almost too much to deal with, but she discovers a racist, backwoods, tiny hick community more famous for her aunt’s moonshine than for its progressive thinking. What’s more is that everyone seems to be hiding secrets.

Dangerous ones.

Illegal ones.

Violent ones.

When her family arrives, the dominoes start falling and the intrigue and suspense build to a remarkable ending. A surprise gift, a boy, and revealed town secrets help Kee, her family, and her small community to learn, grow, and find love.

VIRGINIA GRAY

Susan never planned on a husband, kids, or a small-town address. Her dream included a giant corner office and a full spread in Forbes Magazine. But for reasons defying understanding, she’s agreed to marry her formal rival, Pete Walsh, move to the tiny coastal community of Havelock, North Carolina, and become part of his enormous (and highly opinionated) family. But marital bliss can be a fleeting thing. When the opportunity for company advancement arises, Susan is forced to choose between her personal wants and her family’s needs.

Pete never realized that marrying Susan meant marrying her career as well. He’s a simple guy with the simple dream of settling down and raising a family. When he learns Susan doesn’t share his vision, marriage becomes harder than either of them imagined.

Can Susan find a way to have it all? Can Pete come to terms with her decisions? And whatever happened to happily-ever-after? Find out in Back Where I Belong…

DDDARE THE DEVIL

SAVE A HORSE – RIDE THIS DEVIL OF A COWBOY!

Welcome to Glacier Country! Luthor Devlin and his ranch hands were out tracking 20th century rustlers when they stepped into a time warp!

There on the jagged cliffs was a woolly mammoth, a sabre-toothed tiger and her – a tawny, near-naked savage. She was a primal fantasy come true – that left him stunned!

His gaze was locked onto hers. “I’d really appreciate an explanation of all this. You, the hairy elephant, and the cat with the overbite are not the norm in Montana. And I know you can understand my every word. So anytime you’d like to begin.”

Her relaxed appraisal hadn’t gone unnoticed by either the man or the large tiger. The latter proved her undoing. His mouth opened not to snarl again but to emit a long, loud, kittenish yawn. The tiger rolled over, rubbed his back and shoulders into the ground, his hind legs spread-eagle, yawned again, and pawed sleepily at his face. To the amazement of everyone, his sword-like teeth fell out.

“Damn it, Pumpkin, why couldn’t you have just growled!” She extended her hand. “Cam Stirling, action technician.” At his confused expression, she sighed. “Stunt woman.”

She was wild, irresistible – and he was the man to tame her. She dared the devil every day – why not Luthor Devlin!
