Caught between two worlds, Caleb Stoltz is bound by a deathbed promise to raise his orphaned niece and nephew in Middle Grove, where life revolves around family, farm, faith—and long-held suspicions about outsiders. When disaster strikes, Caleb is thrust into an urban environment of high-tech medicine and the relentless rush of modern life.
Dr. Reese Powell is poised to join the medical dynasty of her wealthy, successful parents. Bold, assertive, and quick-thinking, she lives for the addictive rush of saving lives. When a shocking accident brings Caleb Stoltz into her life, Reese is forced to deal with a situation that challenges everything she thinks she knows—and ultimately emboldens her to question her most powerful beliefs.
Then one impulsive act brings about a clash of cultures in a tug-of-war that plays out in a courtroom, challenging the very nature of justice and reverberating through generations, straining the fragile threads of faith and family.

They’re trapped together in a small room with an even smaller bed and a long, cold night ahead. Soon she’s aching for his warmth, his touch…his mouth…. Tessa isn’t usually attracted to a man so stoic, edgy and…dangerous. But if it’s so wrong, why does it feel so right?
Kiss and Makeup by Taryn Leigh Taylor
Makeup artist Chloe Masterson has a look for every occasion. Flying home for her sister’s wedding and family torture calls for sarcastic wit and black eyeliner. Bonus—the look catches the eye of Ben, the corporate hottie sitting beside her on the plane. And when a hotel mix-up lands them in a room together, Chloe decides to accept the gift the Fates have bestowed upon her. (Tip: a bold lip color does wonders for seduction.) But as their lies begin to snowball, Chloe and Ben find it harder and harder to distinguish between what’s real and what’s all just smoky eyes and mirrors.
