Best if books are read in order. 


Fate, the great equalizer, binds two broken and battered hearts together in their true destiny. 

When those wanting to silence Cora show up in Gibbs City, Missouri to do her harm, Sheriff Virgil Carter fights against Cora’s past as it rises and threatens to destroy them both. 

Caught between her past and the future she longs for, Cora must make a difficult decision. Torn between her desire to hold on to love, Cora must surrender what she holds dear to her heart and allow the healing to begin. 

Fate says one thing, the heart another. Destiny stands at the crossroads. 

Love often comes like sleep, softly, quietly and unexpectedly. You just have to close your eyes and dream.

In the early hours of an icy Montana morning, the recently widowed Rose Gray wraps her baby up tight in a blanket, and escapes from the home that now belongs to her greedy and powerful in-laws.

She travels to Come-By-Chance to meet young fur-trapper Henry Miller, who has agreed to marry her if she will come - but Henry knows nothing of Rose's baby, or even her seven-year marriage.

Can Rose expect such a young man to accept not just herself, but her baby daughter Minnie as well?

Might Rose and Henry find love amidst all the troubles that threaten to tear them apart?

And what is Rose's secret - a secret so terrible she can see no other future than to live with the shame of it, each and every day for the rest of her life?

It's time to catch up with the Come-By-Chance townsfolk: the strapping Wilkinson brothers Ben, Matt and Toby; recently wed Ruby, Emily and Violet; the Beans, the Hearts, the Milligans, the Carmichaels and of course, the feisty Kate and incorrigible Wally Davis.

The Sleeper SEALs are former U.S. Navy SEALs recruited by a new CIA counter-terror division to handle solo dark ops missions to combat terrorism on U.S. soil.

Garrett Mann is burned out. Eight years as a Navy SEAL can do that to a man – especially when he’s been on one too many missions where he has lost too many of his buddies. At thirty-five, he has been fortunate not to be the next Navy SEAL with his name on the wall. Still, he can’t refuse a former commander who enlists him for one last assignment on a secret project.

Doctor Haley Kingston skills will keep her alive, but only one man can save her after she is kidnapped from the hospital where she is working. Haley’s code of ethics as a doctor leaves her little choice but to help the injured leader of a terrorist group. Unfortunately, those ethics won’t be able to save her, or thousands of others, should the terrorist leader live.

Haley will have to trust the last man on earth that she wants to see – the one that broke her heart. Garrett has his own problems. He will have to face his worse nightmares – see the one he loves in danger and realize that his dog tags may be the next ones given to her. Garrett will be pitted against foes determined to stop him at any cost. Can he save the woman he has always been afraid to love before she is executed? Or will his nightmares come true, and this mission will turn out to be his last?
