The Enforcer by Anna Perrin
Professional. Powerful. Thoroughly male…
That was psychologist Claire Lamont's first thought when she met her bodyguard, the agent charged with keeping her from a rogue operative's bullet. And as much as she feared death, she soon faced an even scarier predicament: walking away from a man she couldn't tear her eyes off of.
Bodyguard Brent Young was considered one of the best, and he vowed to use every ounce of his FBI training to help Claire. His enticing ward prodded him, unleashing his secret desires. The longer he kept her secluded at a remote cabin, the more sizzling the tension grew. Before long, the chances of remaining professional became a thing of the past … as did their chances of staying alive.

Shotgun Sheriff by Delores Fossen
Comanche Creek's not big enough for two to investigate a murder. That's the feeling Texas Ranger Livvy Hutton gets when she's sent there as a forensic expert. Yes, she's horning in on Sheriff Reed Hardin's territory and can't ignore a distinct chill in the air between them. But according to evidence Livvy uncovers, she senses the cowboy cop's acting ornery to protect his good ol' boys from arrest for the murder. And backing off is not in her nature.
Then, just days into the investigation, Livvy detects bigger trouble: a mutual attraction she and Reed have no business acting on. A torrid affair could compromise the case…or spark some much needed—and very satisfying—cooperation!
