Zander opened his hand. The necklace lay across his palm. “I don’t want anyone else. Just you. For the rest of my life.”

She trembled as he fastened the chain around her neck.

“I love you,” she breathed. “More than anything.”

Intense happiness tumbled through him as he threaded his fingers through her hair and drew her forward. Caressing her lips with an achingly sweet kiss, he whispered against her mouth. “Promise you won’t give it back again?”

“Promise.”

“I love you.”

Contentment and belonging wrapped him in warmth. Together, they’d continue to heal the scars that had marred their souls. Side by side, they could face anything. Falling in love with the angel next door was the best thing he’d ever done.

As the only reporter in the small town of Fortuna, Ohio, Tessa McDonald hopes every phone call will be the big story that brings glory to both her and the radio station, WFRT. When Eugene, the town’s one goth/gangsta teen calls, she only goes to check out his supposedly gone-crazy mom to keep from disappointing him. But when some of Fortuna’s already colorful characters go waaay around the bend, she knows more help is needed.

Carson Hayes of the Ohio Bureau of Investigation returns to Fortuna to aid the local police after a 60-something shopkeeper disappears. While he searches through bank records and waits for a ransom call, he’s also rolling with the chief as the newly nutty are taken to the local psych ward. He’s thrilled to spend his nights with Tessa, despite the cranky cat she’s been guilted into sheltering, the morose appearances of Eugene, and her predilection for always being on the wrong end of a gun.

Together, they try to mend a twenty-five-year family rift, caused by greed and stubbornness, by proving that love is more powerful than money.

He’s completely unprepared for the attraction he feels for his sister’s best friend and blames his grief when he gives into it. Gabe tries to put things right. Kate is practically family, and he promised his father he’d take care of her.  However, Gabe is pretty sure taking Kate hard and fast against any ready surface wasn’t what his dad had in mind.

Despite his constant meddling and insistence that they need to keep things platonic, he makes her tremble with desire and yearn for forever with him.

Double Down Desperate
by Jannifer Hoffman

The most important things in Patsy Bartlett’s life are what color nail polish to use and whether to fly to Rome or Paris for the weekend—until her father, calling her spoiled, lazy, and greedy, cuts the purse strings and gives her a sink-or swim-ultimatum. She must survive on twenty-five thousand dollars for one year or be cut from his will. A list of restrictions ban her from borrowing, acquiring money she hasn’t earned, or carrying a debt of any kind at the end of the year. Taking her time to acknowledge he is truly serious gets her into trouble.

North Dakota farmer Luke McAlister is accused of killing his wife and two little girls. His case against him is dismissed on a questionable technicality. Consequently, returning to the small town where he grew up suddenly becomes a nightmare. The community is divided between those who believe he got away with murder and those who think he’s innocent. The only way he can find peace is to unravel the mystery of what happened on a night he can’t remember—and hope the truth doesn’t turn out to be his biggest nightmare.

The last thing he expects is help in the form of a carrot-top floozy driving a red Maserati.
