A Hope At The End Of The World
In the chaos of World War II, Polish teenagers Helena and Luzyna Grabowski have lost everything. Without parents or a home, they are shipped to a refugee camp in Persia. When they hear that orphans are being selected for relocation to New Zealand, Helena is filled with hope — until the officials say they have a place only for her younger sister. On the morning she is to be transported, Luzyna fails to join the group, and Helena takes her place. The horrors of war and her guilt at abandoning her sister follow Helena across the sea. Though the people in New Zealand embrace her, the traumas Helena has suffered threaten her peace and blind her to the devotion of James, a young Allied pilot. If Helena can let go and dare to hope again, she may finally step out of the shadow of her past to find a future.
A Filthy Business
Good intentions: they'll bite you every time.
A lifetime ago, brutally efficient fixer Phil Kubiak coldly cleaned up the messes of shady clients from Miami to Las Vegas by any means necessary — short of murder. Now he's one eye and one working leg short of the man he used to be, scarred beyond recognition, and with the feds and criminal organizations in hot pursuit. Throwing back sour beer in a dingy bar, Phil recounts the long story of his bitter life to the only person left to listen... Across the splintery table, a journalist in pursuit of a career-making interview has driven into the bowels of the desert, seeking not only an award-winning profile but also something more... something darker. Will what she sees in Phil's empty gaze spur her toward forgiveness — or vengeance?

Curious Liaisons
Alex Gentry doesn't scare easily. Working as an undercover FBI agent he hangs with criminals in order to gather information. Danger is just part of the job. But one thing has him terrified: his attraction to Madison Parker. Madison is the cousin of Ramon Alonzo, son and second in command to a notorious drug lord. Alex has befriended Ramon as part of his cover, and Madison has unknowingly become his informant. Falling for her could risk this case — and both their lives. All Madison wants is to get her new business off the ground, and for her creepy cousin Ramon — to whom she's unfortunately indebted — to leave her alone. If she could only stop fantasizing about Alex... As the Alonzo investigation heats up, so does their relationship. But will the secrets they're keeping tear them apart — or get them both killed?
Lucas Thorn wasn't born a cheater. All it took was a single moment — say, a certain disastrous incident on the night before his wedding — and boom. Reputation destroyed forever and always. So now he owns it. He has a lady friend for every night of the week and his rules are simple: No commitments. No exceptions. But a certain smart- mouthed, strawberry blonde vixen is about to blow that all to hell. Avery Black has never forgiven Lucas for cheating on her sister. And suddenly being forced to work with him is pretty much her nightmare. It does afford her the opportunity to make his life as difficult as possible. But no good revenge scheme comes without payback. Now Avery's lust for vengeance has turned into, well, lust. And if Lucas stops cheating, it's definitely not because he's falling in love...

Trinity Harbor
How could the sensible daughter of Trinity Harbor's self-proclaimed patriarch have taken in the boy caught hot-wiring her car? Whether the boy is a modern-day Huck Finn or not, Trinity Harbor is in an uproar. But for Daisy Spencer, guiding the orphaned ten-year-old is easy, an escape from her own tragic past. She can ignore the town's nay-saying. The only real obstacle is...that man. That man is the boy's uncle, Walker Ames, a tough DC cop who sees his unexpected nephew as his last chance at redemption. Soon he's commuting to the charming fishbowl of a town, where everyone assumes he's seduced Daisy — their best Sunday-school teacher! But to Walker, Daisy is a disconcerting mix of charming innocence and smart-mouthed excitement in a town that's not as sleepy as it looks.
