Interior designer Kate Munroe’s life is a train wreck. Her parents’ deaths left her with their mounds of debt, she can’t get a job designing even a cubicle, and she’s bunking in her best friend’s spare bedroom. To make ends meet, she’s a nanny to a lonely little boy whose rich father works all the time. Romance is not on her radar. But her hot new neighbor could change her mind, with his broad shoulders and Southern charm. Too bad his secrets could destroy her.
Cathy has always loved writing, but that pesky thing called Real Life cast writing into the backseat for years. Now she has reunited with her creative passion, and devotes every moment she can to all the plots and characters milling about in her imagination. She admits she finds story plotlines in everyday occurrences going on around her.
When she’s not writing her special mixture of romance and humor, she likes to travel read, and take long walks with her husband (the inspiration for her happily-ever-afters). Cathy looks forward to many years of writing for readers’ enjoyment.
Imprisoned for a crime he didn't commit, undercover cop Jake Dalton wants answers-now. Worse, he's dragged Lucy into the mix, and she's now guilty by association. With their lives on the line, the race is on to get to Las Vegas before they're killed...and they're running out of time.
Zane Bigelow grew up in a beautiful, perfectly kept house in North Carolina’s Blue Ridge Mountains. Strangers and even Zane’s own aunt across the lake see his parents as a successful surgeon and his stylish wife, making appearances at their children’s ballet recitals and baseball games. Only Zane and his sister know the truth, until one brutal night finally reveals cracks in the facade, and Zane escapes for college without a thought of looking back...
Years later, Zane returns to his hometown determined to reconnect with the place and people that mean so much to him, despite the painful memories. As he resumes life in the colorful town, he meets a gifted landscape artist named Darby, who is on the run from ghosts of her own.
Together they will have to teach each other what it means to face the past, and stand up for the ones they love.
Sexy, gorgeous Mackenzie Baudin also happens to be at the top of the organized crime’s hit list. He knows he can never reveal the real reason why he was forced to leave her behind years ago, but he’ll do whatever it takes to gain her trust.

Full description is below:
SEALs of Honor: Brett
High seas terror and international intrigue all wrapped up in homegrown problems of the loved-and-lost-and-found-again variety…
Rescuing hostages trapped on a yacht in the middle of the open ocean is a routine mission for an elite SEAL like Brett. But when one of the hostages turns out to be his ex-girlfriend and her kids, the same-old, same-old takes a turn for the discombobulating. Particularly because she's single again…
As a way to heal, Ceci walked away from Brett years ago, straight into another intense relationship. Now she's a widow raising two kids. Her plan to stay single and safe from heartbreak feels a million miles away when she comes face-to-face with her rescuer--the man she's never been able to forget. Unfortunately, "safe" is no longer in the cards anymore…in life or love.
SEALs of Honor: Devlin
Cupid apparently has a soft spot for SEALs and he's lined his sights up on Devlin next. He's not looking for romance, but he finds the right woman in the worst possible place.
As part of a military unit helping train Afghan soldiers, Devlin is learning how to use the latest combat drones. After a murder is committed on the base, suspicion falls on the drone's drop-dead-gorgeous designer. Devlin can't stop himself from running to her rescue. Following their return Stateside, another employee in the same company turns up dead. Once again, all evidence points to the designer.
Bristol had no choice but to take her latest drone models to war-torn Afghanistan, given how behind schedule she is in her work and because her boss is pressuring her. The last thing she expected was disaster to strike and, for all the world, she looks like the one to blame. When the bodies pile up and her research goes unfathomably missing along with her best friend, she's determined to find out what's going on, damn the danger.
Devlin has made it his mission to keep her safe while she seems to be doing everything in her power to make his job--and resisting her--impossible.
SEALs of Honor: Easton
Trips to Canada's wilderness for joint military training are something Easton always looks forward to. Meeting the lovely photographer contracted to capture the base and trainees for new marketing materials adds a whole new twist to a straight-forward routine…a twist with both a light and dark undertone.
Summer tends to get lost in her art so she's been called ditzy, absent-minded, and a host of less flattering names. She doesn't let any of it bother her. Her passionate nature has a rewarding creative outlet, and she adores traveling for her work.
Unfortunately, her undistracted concentration means she isn't always taking care of herself the way she should. So, when she's attacked, Easton is the one who realizes she's unwittingly stumbled into a dangerous situation and she needs his help to stay safe.
The escalation of violence has Easton holding Summer close enough to kiss, close enough to shatter her ability to focus on a single other thing…
