Title: Wicked Highland Wishes (Highland Vows: Entangled Hearts)

Released: October 10, 2016

Blurb:

Desire tempted them. Honor forbade them. Love ensnared them.

Legendary warrior Lachlan MacLeod has never encountered anything or anyone he could not conquer. But when his younger brother confesses his love for Bridgette MacLean--the only woman Lachlan has ever wanted--Lachlan turns away the beautiful Scottish lass, vowing to be no more than her friend. Yet his need for Bridgette enslaves him and may well prove to be the one thing he cannot defeat.

Fiercely independent Bridgette longs to be treated as an equal to the men. She always imagined great battles in her future, not great love. Then Lachlan saw her as no one ever had and captured her heart, awakening new cravings inside her without realizing it. But when Lachlan's younger brother suffers a grave injury while saving her life, she feels unable to deny his plea for her heart. However, it is impossible to give what belongs to another...

Torn between their own desire and their loyalties, Bridgette and Lachlan must find the courage to grasp the passion awaiting them and face the pain their choice will cause. Yet even as they confront their future and love finally seems within their grasp, a fight for the Scottish throne divides the Highland clans and Bridgette becomes a pawn in a political game that threatens to tear her and Lachlan apart forever.

Title: HOT SEAL Rescue (HOT SEAL Team)

Released: September 27, 2016

Blurb:

Abducted at gunpoint by a gorgeous woman...

Navy SEAL Cody "Cowboy" McCormick is in Las Vegas for a little R & R before his friend's wedding when a beautiful blonde jams a gun in his side and abducts him from a casino in broad daylight. He could stop her, but he plays along because he's intrigued--plus he's convinced she's in danger.

CIA agent Miranda Lockwood's life is on the line when an undercover operation goes wrong. Little does she know when she sashays up to the biggest, baddest looking dude in the casino lobby that she's kidnapping a Navy SEAL--or that she'll be unable to resist his charm when he turns up the heat.

When the CIA labels her a rogue agent, Miranda's faith in everything she believes in is shaken to the core. Cody's the only one she can trust to help her find the traitor in the agency. But even though she's forced to betray him, she can't get over the SEAL who made her feel safe in his arms. Miranda will have to fight harder than she's ever fought for anything if she wants his forgiveness--but Cody's not in a forgiving mood in spite of the sparks that still fly when he's forced to team up with her again.

When disaster strikes and they're caught in the line of fire, Cody will do everything in his power to keep them both alive. Because if he doesn't, he'll never get to hold Miranda close again...

Released: September 16, 2016

Blurb:

J. T. Baxter is having a very bad year. As if adjusting to widower status and caring for two sons, weren't enough, he has a landscaping business to keep afloat with a loan coming due. The last thing he needs is the town princess waltzing into his life with a business proposal he can't afford to refuse.

Cassandra Bing feels adrift after her father's death, a nasty broken engagement and enduring a job she loathes. She's searching for her niche, something that would've made her dad proud and will bring her fulfillment. But gardening is a hot, dirty business, and soon she's wishing she'd made a different sort of proposition to the sexy dad.

As attraction escalates between J. T. and Cass, tensions grow in a house where secrets fester. Can her presence begin to heal the Baxter household, or will their tender feelings become a casualty of the impending emotional storm?

Waring: This book contains some plant abuse, a sexy, bare-chested landscaper, sensual use of ice cubes and steamy adult situations in a greenhouse.  Readers may suddenly wish to hug motherless kids, experience a rise in pulse rate and may feel the need for a cooling fan.
