 At the counter in her studio Melinda continued to stare out the window after Jake and Louie left her studio to apply for their warrants.

He lumbered on then swung himself onto the roof jutting out below the window. Despite the cold temperatures, sweat ran down his face and soaked the shirt under his jacket.

Marsha West


Hearing someone outside whistle “Santa Claus is Comin’ to Town” while I worked, I turned my gaze to look out the storefront window where I spied Jack, who rounded the corner. A pizza box from Mamma and Pappa’s Italian Bistro was perched on three of his fingers.

Vicki Batman


The velvet sky made a beautiful background for the barn, dressed like a grand old dame with a multitude of lanterns and fairy lights spilling from the open doors and windows to light their way.

Jacquie Biggar


I noticed a man making his way through the crowd that had gathered outside the front window.

Joanne Guidoccio


She distinctly remembered locking the door and checking the windows when she turned in after their long security shift, but someone was definitely in the room with her now.

She was wearing exactly the same clothes as he was, but it made her look sexy as hell. What was it about a dead serious-looking woman wearing a shoulder holster that was so damned hot?

Kathryn Jane


He said it was part of their sex game. Like that book that came out last year on bondage.”

Marian Lanouette


A couple of women she knew in Fort Worth had a fireplace in the bathroom. They’d told her it did a lot for their sex lives; not an idea she needed right now.

Marsha West


Sarah hadn’t been lying when she’d told him it’d been a long time since she’d had sex. But, honestly, it wouldn’t have mattered when the last time was because no man had ever made love to her like Nate had.

Sharon Wray


Since high school days, I underwent an overhaul and improved. No longer did I wear all black, except for the occasional sexy Little Black Dress.

Vicki Batman


She’d moved out of their bedroom only months after the wedding, the night he came home smelling of sex and cheap perfume.

Jacquie Biggar


That undercurrent he’d felt around her since he’d hit puberty had intensified from a vague tingle along his nerve endings to full-on waves of sexual attraction. Animalistic and powerful.

Never in a million years, did I think we would reconnect in these circumstances with my family in tow.

Joanne Guidoccio


Two steps inside and the warmth of walls with a long history of family wrapped around her.

Kathryn Jane


The pallbearers wheeled the casket into the church through the double doors. Jake and the honor guards moved aside for the priest to greet the family and perform the introductory rites.

Marian Lanouette


Given everything her family had experienced, she was amazed how safe she felt in this little town. Everyone seemed to watch out for each other. Comforting.

Marsha West


Sarah stood on her toes and kissed her husband. Surrounded by their friends, and a garden filled with laughter and music, she’d finally started her own family.

Sharon Wray


“Er, Lauren.” He straightened and jammed his hand in his jeans pocket. “Let’s get this show on the road. Places to go. Friends and family to visit.”

Vicki Batman


Gus looked around the bare-bones cell. “Your family and friends are worried about you.

Shivers racked her body with remembered terror of that night, one of many she had endured from her loving husband.

Jacquie Biggar


“Mercy, I love you. I want to make a life with you. Here. Working together. Living life together.” He lifted her hand and placed a soft kiss there. “Loving together.”

Claire Gem


“Good morning, everyone. I’m very happy to be here. I’ve been out of the classroom for almost two years and loving every minute of it.”

Joanne Guidoccio


He placed his fingers against her lips. “This isn’t about control. It’s about loving you.”

Kathryn Jane


Callie, a wonderful, loving person, who had done nothing wrong to anyone, killed because she wanted to surprise her husband.

Marian Lanouette


“I’ll take good care of the shop for you.” Jill understood how hard turning loose of something you loved was. “I promise you.”

Marsha West


Nate was a selfish bastard who was sure of only one thing: loving Sarah was going to ruin him.

Sharon Wray


“I like these Christmas decorations.” He stroked a vintage satin ball, hand-beaded by my grandmother and lovingly passed on to me. “I think Grammie has some. But she hasn’t used them in a while.”

“Date Jack?” I asked ever-so-casually as if I never even considered the possibility. The bravery seed expanded and fortified me. “Where did you get the idea? I’m clueless.”

Vicki Batman


She’d been crying, her eyes red and swollen, her voice husky, and yet she stood there before his friends, unbowed, ready to grab a dragon by the tail if it meant protecting her daughter. He’d never seen anyone braver, or more compelling.

Jacquie Biggar


I held her tightly as my eyes welled with tears. I was so grateful and proud of this brave young woman.

Joanne Guidoccio


NO. She owned who she was and how she felt, and if it was too much for a big, brave guy like Broughton to handle, well then, he wasn’t the man for her anyway.

Kathryn Jane


The walnut wall panels gave the room a sober feel. His dad’s many awards and medals for bravery sat on the bookcase to the side of his large cherry desk.

Marian Lanouette


Sarah believed in him even when he didn’t believe in himself. Her strength and bravery had taught him that.

Nate needed Sarah to follow his order. She was smart enough. It was her stubbornness that was the problem.

Sharon Wray


“Smart, beautiful and stubborn. You haven’t changed a bit, Gilda Greco.” He lowered his voice. “After all of this is over, I’m taking you out to dinner.”

Joanne Guidoccio


Linda was at a loss to figure out how to make him understand. The man was stubborn and locked on.

Kathryn Jane


“You’re a stubborn bastard, but you’re in no condition to dictate to me if you’ll be seen or not. I’ve taken over the scene, and as officer in charge, I say you’ll be seen by the medics. Got it?” Louie demanded, shoving down his temper.

Overreacting here, to say the least. Everyone who’d been involved with the scary stuff in Texas was dead or in prison. Nevertheless, she shuffled toward the front of the house, her hand securely grasping a rolling pin.

Marsha West


“Nate fought the man until a shot went off. It was violent and scary. I almost fainted.” Nate looked away, knowng Sarah’s attempt to play the frightened girl card would only work if he didn’t laugh.

Sharon Wray


When the eerie suspicion I resembled a scary dame with Big Texas hair from the television show, “Dallas,” I turned my head to avoid the mirror.

Vicki Batman


María couldn’t breathe. The heat was worse than the pitch black, and that was scary enough. She and the others were squeezed into the back of the semi-trailer like tuna packed into a can.

Jacquie Biggar


And I’ll be honest—what you were telling me about some Confederate soldier, with you being new here, from the city and all . . . well, these big old houses can be spooky. There’s a lot of history in them.”

Claire Gem


Was it good or back luck to be opening my office on Halloween?

Joanne Guidoccio


Loving someone else was scary and dangerous. And in Katrina’s case, it had proven to be life-threatening.

Two long rows of them—everything from brightly-painted single engines and sexy little jets to spooky-looking black military helicopters.

Kathryn Jane


She loved the challenge to engage those inquisitive minds. But to do that she’d need to add in a little fun—maybe a Halloween party for her class base on the history of the holiday.

His admin sat guard over the office with military precision, straight back, blonde hair in a tight French twist, a tailored suit in royal blue, accented her blue eyes and perfect figure. Molly pulled at her own jacket.

“I didn’t want to be right on their tail. Hard to disguise my official Sheriff’s Jeep.”

Marsha West


Etienne had inherited the Marigny dark eyes and sharp, beak-like nose that resembled a black crow plague mask. Or so he’d been told.

Sharon Wray


“I can’t believe it. You appear to be a good catch. Being helpful in a crisis and dressing well are excellent qualities.”

Vicki Batman


Would my mysterious nighttime visitor still be wearing his very convincing looking reenactment costume? Maybe it hadn’t been a dream after all . . .

Claire Gem


I wondered what disguise could possibly cover all those piercings but decided to focus on Michael. “What did she find out?”

Joanne Guidoccio


He couldn’t disguise the chaos swimming behind his eyes. Chaos and something else she couldn’t quite decipher.

She moved forward to the massive wood door, her hand frozen on the door handle when the etched writing came into view.

“Between my father and George, they had approximately seventy years in the law. If I didn’t get Michelle to go over the contract with a magnifying glass, they’d both come back to haunt me.”

“Civilian operation,” Pete said. “No grenades.” Ty scowled. “Says who?” “The law.”

My gut went uh-oh. Is this good or bad?

Vicki Batman


There was a possibility one of them could be hurt, maybe even seriously. They were trained for these kinds of scenarios, knew what to do, how to react, but, given Murphy’s Law, Connor wasn’t surprised she was worried.

Jacquie Biggar


It didn’t take me long to discover, via a quick Google search, that sellers were required by law to disclose any documented “ghoulish activity.”

Claire Gem


Sofia gasped. “You’re out of line, Melly Grace. You don’t have a license to practice law here in Canada. So back off. ”

“You’ll have a seat and place those papers back on the desk. And together we’ll wait for your attorney.”

Marian Lanouette


“You do realize I’ve been practicing for over fifteen years, right?”

He didn’t respond. It didn’t matter. She always had to work harder to convince him she was a competent, capable attorney.

“Gary will have my head if I don’t talk with him first. So, will my attorney. Let me mull over these numbers for a week or so at least.”

Nate opened the worn paperback and studied the truly awful topographic drawing only a lawyer could make.

Sharon Wray


“Daniel called. There’s been some trouble at Yahoo.” No! Not the restaurant.

Vicki Batman


What was her normal going to be now that her husband was dead and her assets frozen? It was unlikely the lawyers would look favorably upon the dislodged wife of a former hustler.
