It's been two years since Jessy Lawrence lost her husband in Afghanistan, and she's never fully recovered. Drowning her sorrows didn't help, and neither did the job she'd hoped would give her a sense of purpose. Now trying to rebuild her life, she finds solace in her best friends, fellow military wives who understand what it's like to love-and lose-a man in uniform . . . and the memory of one stolen night that makes her dream of a second chance at love.

Dalton Smith has known more than his fair share of grief. Since his wife's death, he revels in the solitude of his cattle ranch. But try as he might, he can't stop thinking about the stunning redhead and the reckless, passionate night they shared. He wasn't ready before, but Dalton sees now that Jessy is the only woman who can mend his broken heart. So how will he convince her to take a chance on him?

Marilyn Pappano
Les enfants de Copper Lake, Marilyn Pappano

En reconnaissant l’homme qui vient d’entrer dans sa boutique, Sophy a bien du mal à cacher son émotion. Ainsi, après huit ans d’absence, Sean Holigan – le bad boy qui faisait battre son cœur d’adolescente timide – est de retour à Copper Lake... Troublée, et consciente que Sean ne la reconnaît sans doute pas, Sophy l’interroge : est-ce pour voir sa sœur Maggie, emprisonnée pour trafic de drogue, qu’il est revenu ? Mais Sean la détrompe : s’il est là, c’est pour protéger ses nièces, Dahlia et Daisy, deux fillettes que Sophy a recueillies chez elle et que les complices de Maggie menacent d’enlever si leur mère fait des révélations sur eux à la police...

L’invisible menace, Cynthia Eden

Qui en veut à Ava ? Et pour quelle mystérieuse raison l’inconnu dont elle n’a fait qu’apercevoir l’ombre dans la nuit la suit-il sans répit, allant même jusqu’à entrer dans son appartement et fouiller ses affaires ? Pour fuir la menace invisible qu’elle sent peser sur elle, Ava quitte la ville et se réfugie chez Mark Montgomery, dont elle sait – bien qu’il ne le lui ait jamais avoué – qu’il est amoureux d’elle et qu’il la protégera. Un espoir vite déçu, car quelques jours seulement après l’arrivée d’Ava chez lui, Mark est victime d’une tentative d’assassinat. Paniquée, Ava comprend alors que le déséquilibré qui la harcèle nourrit une passion maladive à son égard et qu’il est prêt à tout pour l’avoir à lui seul.
