Jessi Brand always gets what she wants. And what she wants is part time ranch hand, part time deputy, and full time hunk, Lash Monroe. Unfortunately, her five big (really big) brothers have other ideas. And so does Lash, who had his fill of large families and overbearing “brothers” during his childhood in foster care. He’s a loner and a drifter and he intends to stay that way.
Can the youngest Brand on the ranch handle six uncooperative males and land the man of her dreams? Maybe, but when trouble finds Lash and he heads off to face it alone, everything else takes a back seat, because the Brand family sticks together, and like it or not, Lash has become a part of that family. And when the cavalry shows up, it’s Jessi leading the charge.
Reporter Ash Coye is faking amnesia to buy some time after a serial killer’s attempt on his life. So when a hottie on a Harley shows up at his bedside claiming to be his wife, he has to pretend to believe her.
Joey Bradshaw knows lying to a guy with no memory is cruel, but if it keeps him alive and stops The Slasher, it’s worth it. The sizzling attraction between her and her make believe husband, however, is an unexpected complication.
"Maggie Shayne writes wonderful romance with page turning thrills that have a permanent spot on my keeper shelf.”

As a little girl, Sara Brand witnessed the murder of her family, an event that has left deep emotional scars. She’s beginning to heal, having found extended family in Texas and the brother she thought she’d lost. On break from her job teaching Kindergarten, Sarah has come to vacation at Sugar Keep, an old plantation in the Louisiana Bayou country.
But trouble hasn’t finished with her yet. It shows up in the form of darkly handsome Jake Nash, a man with a hands-off attitude and sizzling brown eyes, who turns out to be an ex-con suspected of murder. Before she can make up her mind about him, someone is killed right in front of Sarah’s eyes. She didn’t see the killer, but the killer has no way of knowing that.
Now she’s on the run and there’s only one person protecting her. Jake. Is he “her shied” as a Voodoo Priestess told her, or is he stalking her with the intent to silence her forever?
