“Skin Game” by Stuart Woods. (Teddy Fay # 3) When Teddy Fay receives a freelance assignment from a gentleman he cannot refuse, he jets off to Paris on the hunt for a treasonous criminal. But as Teddy unearths more information that just does not seem to connect, his straightforward mission becomes far bigger, and stranger, than he could imagine. The trail of breadcrumbs leads to secrets hidden within secrets, evildoers trading in money and power and a global threat on an unprecedented scale. Under the beautiful veneer of the City of Lights, true villainy lurks in the shadows, and only Teddy Fay alone can prevent the impending disaster.
“Hot Target Cowboy”by June Favor. (Dark Horse Cowboys # 2) Eldest son Colton Garrett is the biggest, strongest, and steadiest of the Garrett brothers. Colt accepts his responsibilities, knowing his future is tied to the land. Colt has stayed centered - but when he falls in love, he falls hard. He is mesmerized by Misty Dalton, the younger sister of one of his brother’s friends. Local girl Misty Dalton has held a family plagued with problems since her mother passed away. But when the threats to her family turn deadly, Misty turns to Colt. If anybody wants to hurt Misty, they’re going to have to go through the toughest of the Garrett boys first.
“Maid for Love” by Marie Force. (Gansett Island # 1) Maddie Chester is determined to leave her hometown of Gansett Island, a place that has brought her only bad memories and ugly rumors. Then she’s knocked off her bike on the way to her housekeeping job at McCarthy’s Resort Hotel by Gansett’s “favorite son,” Mac McCarthy. He’s back in town to help his father with preparations to sell the family resort and has no intention of staying long. When Mac accidentally sends Maddie flying over the handlebars, badly injuring her, he moves in to nurse her back to health and help care for her young son. He soon realizes his plans for a hit-and-run visit to the island are in serious jeopardy, and he just may be “maid” for love.
“Dark Water Rising” by Sharon Sala. Sam and Haley Quaid buried their tenyear- old son and then ended their marriage, all in one week. It wasn’t a volatile divorce, but three years later, except for trading Christmas cards, Sam and Haley have completely lost touch…until a dramatic weather report sets their paths on a collision course once more. Tropical Storm Gladys is heading straight toward coastal Texas, and locals are anxious as they prepare for potential devastation. Haley, a Realtor, has an appointment to show a property and is determined to keep it, but a hurricane isn’t the only looming danger: news reports talk of two prisoners who’ve escaped from a nearby penitentiary only a few miles from the house Haley’s headed for. When Sam’s phone rings with his ex-wife’s number, he immediately remembers the card he gave her when they parted on the courthouse steps. If you ever need me, call and I’ll be there. She hasn’t called in three years, and Sam is sure this can mean only one thing: Haley is in danger, and it’s up to him to save her.
