Mysterious Stranger

Harper and Brothers Company

Curran McKenna communicated with horses, a gift passed down from his grandmother. But when called from Ireland to Kentucky to gentle a crazed horse, he discovered a connection that was magic with the beautiful wounded owner. Jane Grantham survived a brutal attack, but now her hope of staying alive and winning the Thoroughbred Millions cup was in the hands of a mysterious stranger who claimed he could heal her horse.
The light cast through the arched windows illuminated a muscular arm and a powerful hand holding the framed photograph from her desk — her with her parents, taken just before Daddy had died.
“Who are you, and what do you think you’re doing?”
The man who whirled around in her chair to meet her angry gaze was black Irish handsome. Dark hair spilled over a high forehead and equally dark eyebrows arched over intense blue eyes. His smile forced a dimple into his right cheek, giving him a roguish air.
“Getting to know all I can about Grantham Acres,” came a soft reply. He set down the framed photograph where it belonged. “Curran McKenna, at your service.”
“Curran McKenna,” she echoed. “The trainer?”
“The same.”
Her mind raced. Finn. He was here because of the Irish Thoroughbred, she was certain. But why? How? Had news of the stallion’s madness spread all the way to Ireland? Had he come to claim the truth?
“I received a letter from you,” he began, the Gaelic lilt to his voice becoming suddenly more pronounced, “asking for my help.”
“I wrote you no letter!”
“But you are needing my help, now, aren’t you?”
Her denial didn’t seem to faze him. Suddenly it all came clear to her. “ grandmother. She’s the one who invited you to come here.”
“So she told me a while ago.”
“Look, Mr. McKenna—”
“I’m sorry for your trouble, but I can’t use you.” He was an A-list trainer with world-class clients. “I’m sorry you’ve come on a fool’s errand. I’ll reimburse you for your plane tickets and any other expenses—”
He waved a hand. “Not necessary.”
“—but you’ll have to go.”
“Because I say so!”
Exasperated, she wished he would just take his leave. Having to explain that she couldn’t afford his services would humiliate her further. She would have to top off one of her credit cards just to see him home.
She dared not believe in another stranger.

La fausse accusation, Joanna Wayne

Se pourrait-il que son fils soit un criminel ?

Ne me cherche pas, maman, ce que j’ai fait est trop grave...
Incapable de retenir ses larmes, Faith raccroche le téléphone et se tourne vers Travis, le détective privé qui l’aide à rechercher Cornell, son fils adolescent disparu depuis plusieurs mois. Mais, au lieu de la lueur rassurante qu’elle espérait déceler dans ses yeux, elle ne voit que le reflet de ses propres craintes. Car, si cet appel est bien la preuve que son fils est vivant, le message qu’il vient de lui adresser est plein de sous-entendus menaçants. Vols, trafic, meurtre peut-être... A quelle sombre activité Cornell a-t-il été mêlé, lui qui a été vu pour la dernière fois dans un bar louche de la ville ?

De sombres prémonitions, Patricia Rosemoor

Un mystérieux don de double vue...

Indépendante, volontaire, Cat gère avec autorité son élevage de pur-sang et n’a guère de temps pour songer à l’amour. Pourtant, en accueillant dans son haras Aidan, son nouvel associé, elle sent naître en elle un sentiment inconnu : une irrépressible attraction qui — elle le lit dans les yeux verts du séduisant Irlandais — semble partagée. Cependant, lorsque deux employés du ranch sont tués, Cat découvre un pan caché de la personnalité d’Aidan, et son attirance pour lui se mêle de scepticisme. En effet, il prétend avoir un sixième sens. Un don qui lui a inspiré de sombres visions : Cat serait la prochaine victime du tueur...
