Noah Rossi, wizard in training, comes to the rescue, but can he save her from accidentally destroying the universe?

Text Me: Abigail Jeffries gets a text from a stranger only to discover the sender, Carter Coben, isn’t so strange after all.

Wildflower Redemption: Luz Wilkinson returns to tiny Rose Creek, Texas, to lick her wounds and toughen her resolve against love’s sting. She wants nothing more than to spend her days caring for discarded animals. But will Aaron Estes, her riding student’s widower dad, spur her to try again?

Atonement: A former marine sniper, Deputy Nicolette Rivers hides her PTSD from everyone but detective Con O’Hanlon, who, along with his military dog Cadno, is more than willing to help. But is he too late to prevent Nic’s dark, downward spiral? Or is Con the one man stronger than her demons?

Fated Hearts: Sheriff Carter McAlister and his dog, Dublin, have their lives upended when he offers mysterious newcomer Henley Elliott a job as his assistant.

Sweet Texas Kiss: Veterinarian Gavin Cooper can’t believe country superstar (and the woman who broke his heart) Macy Young will inherit his family home. Luckily, Macy can’t sell the house for one year—plenty of time for him to get it back. Can they find a way to bury their animosity and rediscover their first love in the process?

Unstoppable: When veterinarian Lara Monroe’s fellow cat shifter—and secret crush—Booker Chase needs help, she’s willing to use her special healing touch. Booker’s broken from the loss of his wife and burdened with PTSD from his service in Afghanistan, but Lara is showing him flashes of what might be if they can shut down the Nexus Group forever.

Bloom: L.A.’s charity fundraising maven Ava Bennett heads out to the middle of nowhere to check on a friend for her rock star client, but never expects to tangle with infamous music producer Nate Robinson, nor endanger his dog’s health. Can a career woman find love with a virtual hermit?

What a Texas Girl Dreams: They are opposites in so many ways, but the more veterinarian Trickett Samuels gets to know footloose and fancy free Monica Witte, the more he wonders if he can convince this Texas girl that having roots will only help her soar higher.
