  • An Absence of Motive
    by Maggie Wells

    He was an outsider…and the only man she could trust

    Attorney Marlee Masters’ brother was murdered. Proving it means working with Sheriff Ben Kinsella and facing down the nasty whispers in their rural Georgia town. But a stalker’s vowing retribution if the two don’t end the investigation. Ben won’t abandon Marlee in her hour of need, but will she have to place herself in even more peril to catch the killer?

    Rescued by the Colton Cowboy
    by Deborah Fletcher Mello

    She’s on the run with a baby…

    Soledad de la Vega would do anything to help her loved ones. So, when her best friend is murdered, Soledad vows to keep little Lyra safe…by hiding from a killer in Palmer Colton's barn. The cowboy has never wanted a wife and kids, but something about Soledad and Lyra changes all that. Will he be able to keep his heart intact—even as he keeps them safe from a deadly threat?
