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…

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!

Meet Griffen St.Clair – he thought he could handle her and not get burned. But he quickly found out that Brandy was a force to be reckoned with and he wasn’t giving up on the idea that he could reform her.

Brandy Abbott had decided to teach St. Clair a lesson when he assumed to know so much about her and pronounced her the queen of seducers.

What she didn’t count on was the fact he was soon to be her boss and her lover AND a man who needed to be taught a lesson about women!

What had come over her? Exactly who was she – Brandy the smoldering, uninhibited lady of the night? Or B.J. Abbott, brilliant young architect, whose dreams were filled not with erotic languor but with visions of concrete and steel. For the first time in her life, she didn’t know!

And Griffen – who was he? A mixture of keen-eyed eagle and ferocious lion? He had conjured up a male fantasy and assumed she was a tramp!

Outraged, cast in an unfamiliar role, Brandy had chosen to play it to the hilt and loved the part … unaware that it would throw her into emotional chaos and force her to choose between two of the sweetest things life offered – surrender and revenge.

Like most feats the capable workaholic attempts, her pregnancy goes perfectly… until the results of prenatal testing threaten to tear Micah’s marriage apart.

Pregnant, overworked, and driven to the end of her rope by the neediness of the sister and widowed mother who depend on her, Haley seeks refuge with a week’s vacation on the Alaskan coast. As she soaks up the serenity of the unexpectedly vast and beautiful wilderness, Haley finds something else she doesn’t expect — deep feelings for the wildlife-loving boat captain who reminds her how to laugh.

With her unborn niece or nephew on the way and thousands of miles of ocean between their lives and careers, Haley and Ben settle for a friendship. But back home in California, the emptiness in her heart refuses to heal, and when her pregnancy takes a frightening turn Haley must examine what really matters — and rediscover the childhood dream she never realized she had lost.

PULLING HOME – Mary Campisi

It’s taken nine years and a cross-country move, but Audra Valentine Wheyton has kept her secrets safe. She’s created the perfect life: a husband who loves her, a daughter she adores, and a position as head writer for an award-winning daytime soap. When her husband dies suddenly, Audra returns to her hometown for the funeral and faces a community that has not forgotten her meager beginnings and the man who has never forgiven her for marrying his brother.

Jack Wheyton is a successful pediatric neurosurgeon who is about to become engaged when Audra walks back into his life with her daughter. He forgave his brother long ago for taking something that had been his, something he hadn’t even realized he wanted until it was gone. But forgiving Audra is another story…and forgetting her? Near impossible.

When a shattering illness strikes Audra’s daughter, she turns to Jack to save her child and risks exposing a secret that will change their lives forever.

No more Miss Nice Girl –

Noah Drake walked out of her life without a word – just divorce papers.

Marlayna O’Brian wanted answers and he was the only man who could provide them.

She gave him fair warning: “Seduction is the plan for today. Keep on your toes, Mr. Drake. You never know when or where I’m going to strike!

Inside is one very hot, explicit romantic comedy!
