HEADLINES

Missing
A rescue mission goes sideways when a highly respected operative with extraordinary skills is forced to work with a green-as-grass rookie he knows way too well. With a catastrophic event and six months of intense training behind her, Alexandra Davidson is determined to be the best security agent Meyers has ever taken on—even though her first partner is a man who walked out on her because he doesn't do relationships, and she won't settle for anything less. But personal lives have to be put aside while Alex, Caleb, and the Meyers team race to save innocent victims from human traffickers. Missing, is a fast-paced, full-length, stand-alone adventure set in Texas and British Columbia.
Diamonds To Die For
An old flame, a cold fire, and the will to live. When the men in her life start dropping like flies, Kate will sacrifice everything to keep an old love safe. But Jason knows who the killer is… A horse trainer and a private detective might seem like an unlikely pair, but they have a steamy history neither one would mind revisiting if she wasn't in mortal danger and if he wasn't fighting to keep her alive. Join Kate while she runs for her life, avoids trouble, and is for the most part successful. As for keeping Jason at arm's length? Well, as a former jockey she knows, you can't win ‘em all.
All She Wanted

Married for over forty years, Julia and James have grit, love, and a strong supportive family on their side, but what they're up against this time threatens to undo their dream of a brand new life together.
