Mountain Investigation by Jessica Andersen (book cover shown)
FBI special agent Michael "Gray" Grayson had an agenda … and it didn't include protecting a beautiful loner in the wilds of Colorado who probably knew more than she was sharing. Still, the fear in Mariah Shore's amber eyes after he rescued her from the clutches of a terrorist mastermind seemed all too real. And since Gray wasn't about to watch another person suffer while he felt helpless to stop it, Mariah was now his unwilling partner in uncovering a deadly plot. Before long, looking for answers and hiding out in the cold, tight canyons of the Colorado mountains turned their investigation much more intimate. And believing in Mariah's claims of innocence gave Gray that much more to lose.
Captive of the Desert King by Donna Young
As the King of Taer, Jarek Al Asadi was used to having total control, but then he met the feisty and independent American Sarah Kwong. Sarah made him forget his responsibilities as a royal—until he discovered she was a journalist. She had been granted unrestricted access to his kingdom, but not his private life. Determined to keep her at arm's length, Jarek's plans were thwarted when his enemies set their deadly sights on Sarah. Racing to her rescue, he became her only hope for survival in the unforgiving desert. And she, as always, was the one temptation he couldn't resist.

Pregnesia by Carla Cassidy
Former navy SEAL Lucas Washington was an expert at tackling impossible missions. But when a striking—and very pregnant—woman turned up in a car he was repossessing, suddenly he was in over his head. Shaken and bruised, she couldn't remember what had happened to her or why she was terrified of going to the police. Lucas made it clear he could be trusted, and vowed to protect her until she was safe. Hours turned to days as they searched for clues to her hidden past. Then a family came to claim her, and a happy ending seemed imminent. But had he just delivered his Jane Doe to safety … or into the hands of a killer?
Showdown in West Texas by Amanda Stevens (book cover shown)
Cochise County needed a new deputy and Cage Nichols needed a cover—pronto. Unfortunately, Cage unknowingly assumed the identity of an undercover hit man who'd marked stand-in Sheriff Grace Steele to be murdered.
He was an ex-cop sidelined by a bullet. Now, Cage was embedded in the dusty West Texas border town with no choice but to assume the role of a double agent in order to expose a conspiracy and to protect his own hide. That was the plan. Until he met Grace.
Whether it was the isolation of the no-man's-land town of Jericho Pass or the intense desert heat, he couldn't say, but Cage was fast falling for Grace. He only hoped she wouldn't lock him up after he saved her.
