Stealing Thunder by Patricia Rosemoor (book cover shown)
They were strangers on Lakota land, and although a family curse prevented Tiernan McKenna from finding love, it couldn't stop him from rescuing Ella Thunder. The daughter of a shaman, Ella was fearful of the power within her…and of a killer she'd long thought dead. With the Lakota beauty in mortal danger, Tiernan offered himself up as her protector, insisting they stick together 24/7. Remembering his family history, Tiernan knew acting upon their intense attraction was a dangerous line that would be wrong to cross. Even though the thought of it felt so incredibly right.

Navajo Courage by Aimee Thurlo (book cover shown)
Like a cougar on the hunt, Tribal Officer Luca Nakai was one with the wild—steady, steely and fierce. Nothing like the cops Detective Valerie Jonas was used to. He didn't carry the usual accessories, but he was a more formidable force than she'd ever seen. Not to mention gorgeous.
They were on the trail of a dangerous skinwalker who'd killed twice before and was pursuing another victim. Luca's Navajo ways were invaluable to the investigation and casting a spell over the no-nonsense Valerie, who'd never believed anything but hard facts. So how could the mystery and magic of this quiet man single-handedly be cracking her protective shield right along with the case?

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.
