Riveting HARLEQUIN ROMANCES guaranteed to surprise and excite!

Congratulations to "Brook B.", "Vin G." and "Tammy Y.", the winners in the giveaway. Thank you to all who participated!

By Delores Fossen

A Texas lawman risks his future to protect a woman from his past in USA Today bestselling author Delores Fossen’s latest Sweetwater Ranch book. (Harlequin; $5.50)

The woman fleeing a cold-blooded killer is no stranger to Deputy Colt McKinnon. Fourteen years ago, Elise Nichols was the love of his life. Now she’s back in Sweetwater Springs–to be the star witness in an upcoming murder trial that could tear the Texas lawman’s family apart.

With her explosive revelations certain to rock the town, Elise didn’t expect to be welcomed home with open arms. Certainly not by the cowboy with the badge who once meant everything to her. But after being run off the road and shot at, she has no choice but to trust him. Even more dangerous is the desire that’s reigniting, making Elise yearn for something she may not live to see. 

DELORES FOSSEN is a USA Today bestselling author with a family tree that includes Texas cowboys, Choctaw and Cherokee Indians, a Louisiana pirate, and a Scottish rebel who battled side by side with William Wallace. With ancestors like that, it's easy to understand why Delores, a Texan and former Air Force captain, feels as if she were genetically predisposed to writing romances. Along the way to fulfilling her DNA destiny, Delores married an Air Force top gun who just happens to be of Viking descent. With all those romantic bases covered, she doesn’t have to look too far for inspiration.

“Delores Fossen is just a delightful find! She’s witty, wonderful and wicked.” 
– The Belles and Beaux of Romance

“Fossen’s stories are known for non-stop, explosive action with nail-biting close calls and impressive booby traps, and her latest is right up there. Fans should appreciate the consistency in a genuinely solid series” 
RT Book Reviews

“There is just something about Delores Fossen’s writing style that I can’t resist.” – Riverina Romantics

by Shirlee McCoy

After a prominent senator’s son is murdered, Captain Gavin McCord of the Capitol K-9 Unit wants answers. The senator was a mentor to Gavin, and Gavin will stop at nothing to bring the killer to justice in Protection Detail. (Harlequin $5.99) 

With his team of elite K-9 cops and his loyal dog, Glory, at his side, Gavin discovers that a child at Cassie Danvers’ nearby foster home may have witnessed the murder. 

He’s drawn to the determined and beautiful woman, but she doesn’t want him interviewing her traumatized charges. Yet trusting Gavin is the only way to stay one step ahead of the deadly gunman when Cassie becomes a target. 

SHIRLEE MCCOY knew early that she wanted to write inspirational fiction and began writing her first novel when she was a teenager. Still, it wasn't until her third son was born that she truly began pursuing her dream of being published. Three years later she sold her first book.
Now a busy mother of four, Shirlee is a homeschool mom by day and an inspirational author by night. She and her husband and children live in Maryland and share their home with a dog and a guinea pig.

“McCoy packs a lot of action into a short amount of time. The well-crafted characters show that struggles can often lead to a reward.” – RT Book Reviews

“Shirlee McCoy's writing style flows smoothly and this is a very easy story to get lost in.” –Fresh Fiction 

“McCoy’s writing is descriptive and contains a well-balanced blend of action and romance.”

By Jennifer Morey

 Georgia has seen one wealthy Adair ruin her stepmother's life and swears she won't get involved with his son Carson, but she can’t resist his tempting good looks. Award-winning author Jennifer Morey pairs former special ops soldier Carson Adair with determined librarian Georgia Mason in THE MARINE’S TEMPTATION (Harlequin; $5.50). 
So what if he's a hot former special ops soldier who showers her with extravagant gifts? He is the sexiest man she's ever met and it's hard to hate him for searching for his long-lost stepbrother, or tracking down the traitor behind his botched mission. 
When Georgia is kidnapped by a disturbed ex-boyfriend and thrown in the line of fire, Carson protects her, igniting their scorching passion. But after all they’ve gone through together, will Georgia fit in with the elitist Adairs?

JENNIFER MOREY’S first stories were inspired by her childhood love of Man o' War, Secretariat and The Black Stallion by Walter Farley. Bubbles of dialogue above cartoon drawings of horses led to hand-written tales of adolescent love. Years later, and two months after graduating from Colorado State University with a B.S. in geology, her mother died suddenly and the course of her life changed. The writer in her resurfaced, and she pursued a serious career. As Associate Project Manager for the Spacecraft Systems Segment of a satellite imagery and information company, Jennifer works with the International Traffic in Arms Regulations. When not writing, she can be found playing volleyball, hiking, flower gardening, socializing, or cuddling with her rescued golden retriever and feisty yellow lab. A finalist in more than twenty contests, Jennifer has received several awards for her writing, one of which led to the publication of her debut novel, The Secret Soldier. 

“Morey’s nonstop, action-packed plot and intriguing characters create a compelling story.” 
– RT Book Reviews

“There is gripping suspense in every Jennifer Morey story.” – Cataromance

“Thanks to strong storytelling and smooth pacing, readers will be hooked.” – RT Book Reviews
