Title: Max (7 Brides for 7 Brothers)

Released: November 29, 2016

Blurb:

Former Navy SEAL Max Brannigan is a loner with a strong protective streak and an ocean of survivor's guilt that drives him to take risks no sane man would take. When he gets the news his billionaire father died and left him a horse farm in Kentucky, he's busy protecting American military contractors in a war zone. The first moment he's able, he'll fly back to the US and dispose of the farm. What does a man like him need horses for anyway? Of all the things his father could have left him, this certainly ranks up there as the most bizarre.

Elinor Applegate lives for her horses, but life on the farm isn't easy. Once-thriving Applegate Farm has fallen on hard times in the past few years. Only an influx of cash from her mother's old friend enabled Ellie to keep the family operation going. All her hopes to turn around the business and buy back the land lie on the hooves of a colt destined to greatness.  She's just got to get him there first.

But when sexy, ruthless Max Brannigan shows up, Ellie realizes her troubles are far worse than she thought. He knows nothing about horses--and he cares less than nothing about her dreams. To Max, the horses are useless and have to go--in spite of the fact that every encounter with Ellie only makes him want to drag her into his arms and kiss the fire right out of her. But Ellie will fight hard to keep her dreams alive, even if she has to fight dirty. Max has spent most of his life protecting people from danger--but can he protect himself when Ellie launches a full-scale assault against the walls surrounding his heart?

Title: Christmas in the Scots Arms (Highlander Vows: Entangled)

Released: November 28, 2016

Blurb:

London, 1815

Laird Liam MacLeod is not lacking for lasses that wish to marry him. As chief of one of the few remaining stable and wealthy clans in the Highlands, the scheming misses are more than plentiful--too plentiful, in fact, for a man who desires to marry for love. Given the opportunity to escape to London for the holidays, Liam takes it with a halfhearted expectation that perhaps English ladies will be different. But the calculating debutantes of the ton and their marriage-minded mamas leave him with little hope until a chance encounter brings him face-to-face with a beautiful, witty lady who knows nothing about him.

Miss Cecelia Cartwright has an unfairly tattered reputation and the distasteful yet pressing need for a marriage of convenience. She'd frankly rather eat dirt, but when one's family is on the verge of poverty, pride must fall by the wayside. But the day a handsome, honorable Scot comes to her aid, he awakens longings in Cecelia that she knows she cannot pursue.

Torn between her heart and her duty, Cecelia finds herself dancing at the very edge of impropriety that once before destroyed her good name. When her old suitor returns to Town, she must choose between the laird she loves and the duke who could save her family. Just when she thinks she knows what she ought to do, Liam reveals a secret that may well prove charming Scots are the most dangerous rogues of them all.

Title: The Surgeon's Dilemma (Wards of Avalon)

Released: November 12, 2016

Blurb:

A devastating day...

When neurosurgeon Oliver Brooks loses a little girl on the operating table, it nearly ends his life too. All he ever wanted was to help people--especially those already struggling with day to day hardships. Desperate to make a real difference, he secretly opens a non-profit clinic and provides free healthcare to those who otherwise couldn't afford it.

What Oliver didn't realize is how much his own dismal life needed saving...

Life changing consequences...
One clinic patient, Daniella, a beautiful little girl, is fighting for her life from an unknown illness. The testing she needs is more than the clinic can provide... and much more expensive than her single mother, Synthia, can afford. But Oliver can't turn them away... and he can't get Synthia out of his mind. Her steel determination to make a home for Dani heals some old wounds from his childhood that he thought he'd gotten past.

Determined to help, Oliver offers to marry Synthia so his insurance will pay for all of Dani's tests and treatments. It might be a marriage of convenience, but for all the right reasons.

But Oliver falls in love with his new family, circumstances come into play and threatens to take everything he's worked for. Including the love and family he didn't know he needed...
