"DREAMING OF YOU" (Romantic Comedy)
Katelyn Palmer never believed any harm could come from using her college crush as the hero in her first romance novel--the novel that jumpstarted her writing career. However, when Shane Hunter storms into town, demanding to meet the writer who used his identity Katelyn is confronted with more than her long silent emotions. If Shane takes her to court for invasion of privacy, her career would be over.
Shane doesn't know how to act when his ex sister-in-law accuses him of having an affair while he was married--and then shows him the romance book as proof. Now he wants to know who this author really is and why she used his name, and most of the events in his life, for her story. Desperate to know the truth, Shane befriends Katelyn, but he does not expect to be attracted to her, even more unexpected is the joy he finds watching his twins fall in love with the woman who is stealing his heart, too.
"DANGEROUS KISS" (Romantic Suspense)
In a desperate attempt to keep a man from her past who was wanted by the police from noticing her, Kelsey Manning makes a good-looking stranger an offer. She’ll pay Rick Jarmin if he pretends to know her. That mere request leads into a dangerous kiss . . . An unforgettable kiss even though following the bad guy puts their lives in danger.
A THRILL OF HOPE
Holly Kidman is determined to be the best movie-producer California has ever seen…until her mother’s broken leg ruins Holly’s plans and she must return home for the holidays. During her stay in her home town of Timberland, Montana, fate throws her with a man she’d rather not be around. And yet, once she can get past old grudges, she realizes the charming man and his large ranch inspire her more than she thought possible. Dare she hope for her dream-come-true?
Rafe Montgomery is pleasantly surprised when Holly suddenly returns to town. Still haunted by the one, less than eloquent, kiss they’d shared years ago, he’s disappointed by the haughty attitude she’s come back with. His hope is to change the stubborn and unforgiving woman he’s slowly having feelings for and to show her what Christmas is all about.
Humility is a hard emotion to swallow, but Jace Corbett must relook at his faults if he wants to keep from freezing his what's-it off. Literally. In the middle of the Colorado mountains at a family lodge, his date kicks him out of the cabin. The lady in the next cabin is his angel of mercy and rescues him...in more ways than one.
