"Eagle delivers." Publishers Weekly

A woman on the run . . .

The terrified eyes in the middle of the highway belonged to a woman--battered, bruised, and barely conscious. Nick Red Shield swerved his pickup and empty horse trailer to avoid her, but neither he nor the mysterious Lauren Davis could avoid the collision of their lives . . . though Nick's loner instincts kick into high gear, Lauren's vulnerability tugs at him in ways he'd thought long since shut down. More comfortable with horses than people, he's drawn to the secretive runaway. But even in the safe haven of his South Dakota ranch, among the magnificent painted horses of Western legend, the danger shadowing Lauren's life will compel her to new acts of desperation to save her young son and force Nick to confront demons bent on destroying them both.

Lakota Sioux rancher Dillon Black is slowly working his way back from losing everything he ever cared about. Ultimately, it was the horses that saved him. In his heart, he truly believes in the connection between the wild, majestic breed and the soul of the Lakota people.

Now he has a dream--the Mystic Warriors Horse Camp--a place where youth can connect with the Lakota ways. He has the land, the horses, and the history. All he needs is the money.

That's where television producer Ella Champion comes in. She works on a reality show where community projects get a makeover. Dillon's ranch could be her next show . . . and he could be exactly the man she needs off-screen.

Dillon's ex-wife, Monica, thinks he could use some common sense, but deep down, she feels Dillon's project might heal their shattered family. Especially because she's about to reveal a secret that will change everything. Dillon and their teenage children will need all the help they can get . . .

A secret son. A lost love. A dangerous job. A frightening risk.
A second chance at the happiness their hearts were once afraid to share.



Thirteen years ago, alone and secretly pregnant, Helen Ketterling left her job as a school teacher on the Bad River Sioux Reservation in South Dakota. Her summer love affair with Reese Blue Sky had ended abruptly when he left the reservation to pursue his chance at a NBA career.

Now her new position, a dangerous assignment for the Bureau of Indian Affairs, and Reese's father's sudden death bring them both back to Bad River for a reunion at once fiery and bittersweet. Not only does Helen fear a custody battle if Reese learns that they share a son, but she can't reveal that she's working undercover at the reservation's casino.

And Reese has his own secret--one that ended his basketball career and could endanger his son. While much has changed in the years since he left home, he finds that his roots and his heritage still matter as he reaches for reconciliation with his past. Family ties are the basis of Lakota tradition, and all are threatened by political intrigue and corruption. Was Reese's father murdered because he planned to blow the whistle on the casino's outside management company?

As their investigation into his death leads them down a treacherous path, Reese and Helen struggle to bridge the memories and heartaches of a time when she was an idealistic young teacher and he was a lonely man on the verge of reaching for the stars. They'll have to search deep inside themselves to challenge the doubts that have kept them apart.

Le destin des Fortune. Séduisants, ambitieux... amoureux.

Le dilemme d’un Fortune, Susan Crosby

Fasciné, ravi, séduit... Mais que lui arrive-t-il ? Michael Fortune ne se reconnaît plus. Depuis sa rencontre avec Felicity, rien n’est plus pareil : son sourire et sa fraîcheur illuminent ses journées, son corps, qu’il imagine doux et soyeux, hante ses nuits. Serait-il... amoureux ? Impossible ! Il n’a jamais cru aux sentiments. Et puis, tout les oppose : elle mène une vie tranquille à Red Rock, alors que lui tient les rênes de la prestigieuse entreprise familiale à Atlanta. Elle rêve d’un amour éternel, lui préfère les aventures sans lendemain. Mais alors pourquoi se surprend-il à l’imaginer dans sa vie ? Est-elle différente des femmes qu’il a connues ? Il n’y a qu’une seule façon de le savoir : la convaincre de le suivre pour une escapade romantique...

Les prairies de la passion, Kathleen Eagle

Lily n’avait jamais imaginé retourner un jour chez elle, dans ce coin perdu du Montana. D’autant plus que ces lieux sont habités par un seul souvenir : celui de son départ précipité quatorze ans auparavant, seule, enceinte, effrayée. Et pourtant, maintenant qu’elle a perdu son travail, s’installer temporairement dans le ranch de son père lui a semblé une solution évidente. Mais elle partira vite, très vite, dès qu’elle pourra offrir à sa fille Iris un toit et une vie confortable. Seulement voilà, ce qu’elle n’avait prévu, c’était de succomber au charme de Jack McKenzie, le bras droit de son père : beau, séduisant, sûr de lui, Jack suscite en elle un désir enivrant, effréné. Hélas, inutile de songer à une aventure : parce qu’elle ne restera pas. Et, puis, elle se l’est juré, elle ne laissera plus jamais un cow-boy meurtrir son cœur...

"Edge-of-the-seat suspense . . . Her scene setting is convincing and her pacing flawless . . . Eagle enriches the romance genre."
--Publishers Weekly

His gift is a rare talent; his art celebrates an important American legacy. But it's born from a torment that might make him as dangerous as he is irresistible.


Wealthy, beautiful and sophisticated, Cassandra Westbrook collects exquisite art objects with a connoisseur's fine taste and a rich woman's whims. She always dominates an art auction--until a mysterious artist named Thomas Warrior bids against her for a set of Native American ledger drawings.

Though he's outbid, Thomas feels a strong connection to the historic artwork that embodies his Native American heritage and symbolizes the survival of its courageous spirit. He's a survivor too, growing up on the mean streets to become more famous than he'd ever imagined possible. So he's not a man to give up easily--neither on the drawings nor on the stunning woman who now possesses them.

Thomas and Cassandra are not only destined to cross paths again, but when he agrees to mentor her talented but troubled nephew, fate collides with the fierce attraction they share.

Thomas's artistic gift haunts him as his creations seem to take on a life of their own. When Cassandra's nephew and the extraordinary ledger drawings disappear at the same time, not even Thomas is certain who he really is or what dangers threaten those he loves.
