Identity Crisis by Eliza Daly, author of Under Her Spell

When Olivia Doyle’s father dies, rather than inheriting a family fortune, she inherits a new identity.  She learns they were placed in the Federal Witness Protection Program when she was five years old.  Her father was involved in an art forgery ring and testified against the mob.  Brought up not to trust anyone, Olivia has a difficult time relying on U.S. Marshal Ethan Ryder to protect her, and to keep her secret. She fears her father may have continued his life of crime through her art gallery.  She has little choice but to depend on Ethan when she realizes someone is now after her.  Olivia’s search for the truth leads her and Ethan across country to a family and past she doesn’t remember.

At the age of ten, Ethan witnessed a brutal murder.  He vowed when he grew up, he’d protect people in danger.  Protecting Olivia is difficult when she won’t trust him.  He soon realizes his desire to protect her goes beyond doing his job, but if his judgment becomes clouded by emotions, her safety could be jeopardized.  

Can Ethan and Olivia learn to trust each other when they uncover secrets that will change their lives forever?

The Designated Drivers’ Club by Shelley K. Wall, author of Numbers Never Lie and Bring It On

Jenny Madison was fired from her office job for an “attitude problem” that resulted from, well, a disappointing life. Out of desperation and a need to pay her rent and car loan, she starts a business driving people home after a night on the town. Customer calls continue to put her in contact with Grant Tucker, an equally disillusioned entertainment executive whose life has been derailed due to a family incident of past years.

Grant doesn’t remember the young passenger in the car that killed his niece. He just knows the driver died. At the time, the family needed stability and he needed a job so he delved in to help keep the small entertainment company afloat while his aunt and uncle, the owners, dealt with the loss of a daughter. Years later, meeting Jenny seemed more an aggravation than salvation.

Jenny faces significant personal challenges when a number of her clients, contacts, and friends end up associated to the haunting accident from her past that killed her father. Unfortunately, the little girl also killed in the accident has no intention of staying hidden in the dark. She makes her presence known in a most inconvenient way.

Touchpoint by Shay Lacy, author of Hero Needed

She learns secrets with a touch. He has secrets to hide.

Insurance investigator Gabrielle Healey uses her touch clairvoyance to learn the truth about disasters. But when the crippled Densmore building can’t provide the answers she needs to deny the claim, surely the man who designed it can. The evidence points to a flawed design. A touch will confirm his guilt.

Brilliant architect Christian Ziko has secrets he can’t reveal, and not that he caused the building he created to collapse. With the victims’ families howling for justice and a grand jury poised to indict him, he must uncover what happened so he can clear his name and his conscience.  Yet his brother and business partner discourage him. When a clue unearths terrible truths about the people he trusts, Christian is forced to ask beautiful Gabrielle for help. But someone wants their investigation terminated…and is willing to kill to keep their secrets hidden.
