" . . . a remarkable glimpse into the many relationships people experience in their lives as husbands and wives, parents, children, siblings, friends and lovers." Romantic Times

The secret they've kept can either bring them together or tear them apart.

Youngest sibling and only sister, Kim Luchetti returns to the Illinois family farm after her father's heart attack. Eight years ago she vowed never to return, believing only distance would allow her to forget the tragedy that broke her heart. Returning means she must face everyone's questions, including those of her first love, Brian Riley, the only one who knows her secret.

Brian has always loved Kim, despite his hurt and anger over her having abandoned him when he needed her the most. When she appears at his farm, surprise causes him to tumble off the barn roof and break both of his wrists. Kim's guilt makes her agree to stay and help him until he is healed.

Living in such close proximity forces Kim and Brian to face the past and their unresolved feelings. Will talking about what happened help them heal? Or will the memories of their heartbreak keep them apart forever?

" . . . an emotional tale that will keep one turning those pages until the last one is reached." Loves Romances 

After discovering that the father she'd been told was dead is, in fact, alive, thirteen-year-old Rayne Houston runs away. She takes along her new friend, the Timinator, aka Tim, a young boy she found hiding behind a garbage can in her hometown of Las Vegas.  Tim needs a daddy too, so the two of them hop a bus to Illinois and begin The Daddy Quest.

Nicole Houston is frantic when she discovers her daughter is gone. Her lies are coming back to haunt her, but when she told them she believed she was doing the right thing for everyone. 

Nicole lived a life no child ever should. Dumped as a baby, unwanted and unloved, she ended up in Vegas, working as a stripper. Then one night of love with a man bound for the priesthood set her on a new path... as a mother.

Aaron Luchetti never became a priest.  Instead he has been working on the family dairy farm and trying to forget his past and his failures. But he never got over his time in Las Vegas; he never got over Nicole.  When he discovers he has a daughter he is both thrilled and horrified.

From the moment Nicole steps back into his life, Aaron awakens. Everything about Nicole enthralls him.  Everything about his daughter enchants him.  He wants them to be a family.  But is it too late?

" . . .the beginning of what promises to be a marvelous series. Bring on the next five Rock Creek men!"  Romantic Times

If you liked the Magnificent Seven, you'll love the Rock Creek Six!

Six elite Confederate soldiers band together after the War Between the States, hiring out their guns to protect lawless towns. Violence is all they know, until they make their way to Rock Creek, Texas.  

Mary McKendrick, a headstrong schoolteacher who wants nothing more than to find a home, takes charge when a band of ruffians attempts to destroy Rock Creek.  With very few men left in town following the war, Mary hires Reese, the mysterious and reluctant leader of a band of guns for hire.

Reese is haunted by the war and all he did during it.  The only constant in his life are the five men willing to come whenever he calls them.  They will do anything for each other; they are all they have left.

Though Mary prides herself on managing everyone and anything, she can't manage Reese or her feelings for him.  Reese doesn't believe he is worthy of loyalty and devotion; he certainly isn't worthy of love.  Can Mary teach him differently?

Reese is the first book in the six book Rock Creek Six series, written alternately by RITA Award Winning and New York Times Bestselling authors, Lori Handeland and Linda Winstead Jones. If you enjoyed the movie "The Magnificent Seven" or the novels of Linda Lael Miller and Jodi Thomas, give Reese a try!
