Heather hid a secret for twelve long years, but when the Halls moved back to town it was only a matter of time before the truth came out. Now everyone but Colt knows he has a son. She’ll get one chance to convince Colt to forgive her—and become the father Richard has always longed for. If she answers Colt’s online ad for a temporary wife, will he fall in love with her before he learns the truth?
Colt knows it’s crazy to try to find a wife through an internet ad, and it’s even crazier to fall for a stranger who wants far more than a temporary marriage, but Helena Warner reminds him so much of Heather, he begins to wonder if the two might be the same woman. Heather can’t believe she’s using a fake name to seduce the father of her own child, but is it possible Colt might know more about her true identity than he’s letting on?
Once all the lies and secrets are stripped bare, Colt and Heather must answer the ultimate question: can a love interrupted ever be renewed?

Mason Hall, Navy SEAL, knows all about
difficult assignments, but his current mission is one for the record books. Not
only must he find a wife—and get her pregnant—or forfeit the ranch his family
has prized for generations, he must also convince his three brothers to marry,
too—before the year is up. Who knew one city girl and three wayward brothers
could put up such a fight?
Regan Anderson can’t wait any longer to meet Mr. Right, so she’s
taken matters into her own hands. She’s quit her job, given up her nice
apartment and undergone all the preliminary appointments to prepare for
artificial insemination. Still, becoming a single mother is daunting, so when
she spots Mason’s Wife Wanted ad on the Internet one night, she’s ready for a
few laughs. She’s sure the ad must be fake, but when Mason answers back, she
soon finds herself wanting more than a long distance relationship.
If Mason can just keep her talking until he makes it home from
Afghanistan, he’s sure he can convince Regan he’s her man. But when he whisks
her off for a trial run in Chance Creek, they’re in for an unpleasant surprise.
The ranch is in ruins, the house has been stripped, and they’re going to have
to work day and night to beat Mason’s deadline to win it back.
Can two strangers pull together against all odds? Or is this
mission doomed to fail?

Connor never thought he’d fall for Sadie, but when he learns she means to leave, he knows far more than his mission is at stake. Can he convince her to stay?
Or will love remain out of his reach for good?
Alabama didn’t have a good start to life. Emotionally and physically abused by her mama, Alabama spent her high school years in foster care. People let her down, time after time, and she’d learned to rely on only herself.

Alabama and Abe had no idea their paths would cross and their prayers would be answered, but like most things in life, nothing is ever as easy as it seems at first. Two words would change both their lives and they’d have to fight hard for their happy ever after.
**Protecting Alabama is a stand-alone love story. It’s Book 2 in the SEAL of Protection Series.**
