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.

Jeannie Hall
Old Friends, New Lovers (work in progress)


Was the strangeness of the man’s voice, in fact, a disguise?

“Law enforcement is going over footage from highway cams, truck stops, satellites, toll booths, park entrances, and private ranches.

Kathryn Jane


Cop shows and other law enforcement shows were produced for entertainment, not accuracy. Most law enforcements officials don’t correct the inaccuracies on purpose.

Marian Lanouette


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

Max Mills, Attorney at Law.

“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.”

Marsha West


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

Sharon Wray


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. ”

Joanne Guidoccio


Benji started to follow her but hesitated, looking a bit green. What was that about? “Is there some law against you getting on an elevator with me?”

While she’d been at an attorney’s behest nearly all her adult life, she’d never felt like a collection agent before. Or worse, a loan shark.

But once Tanner’s affairs were finalized, and his attorney signed off on everything, Kate would have to make changes, drastic changes.

Kathryn Jane


“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.

S.A.Taylor
A Twisted Fate (work in progress)


“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.”

Marsha West


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.

Jacquie Biggar


Over the next half-hour, Bitsy explained the original plantation house, owned by a wealthy attorney from Birmingham, was destroyed during Wilson’s Raid during the final months of the Civil War.

Claire Gem


“There is no need for any attorney or any meeting with you.” I said, lifting my chin defiantly. “I don’t know what cozy little arrangement you have with the police department, but I will not be giving you any information.”

I sat at the breakfast table; drinking my coffee and watching Carlo prepare to leave for a one-week winter vacation with his daughter and grandsons.

Joanne Guidoccio


At first, she’d been caught up by the fact that he smelled so good. She wasn’t sure if it was the cologne he wore or what, but the aroma mixed with his personal scent reminded her of carefree vacations, fresh air, and her youth.

Jeannie Hall
Old Friends, New Lovers (work in progress)


“It was the only way we could get Tanner to take a vacation.” Kate went cold clear down to her bones.

Kathryn Jane


Half dressed, Mia sat up and leaned into Jake’s back, her head close to the phone to eavesdrop. He didn’t bother to untangle himself—she had a right to know what was going on. This would affect her vacation as well.

Marian Lanouette


“Yes.” She looked across the store, wishing the rainbows were real, and she’d come to Woodstock on an extended vacation. But that wasn’t the case.

Marsha West


Rafe survived the Gauntlet, went to a Russian prison, and then emerged from Leavenworth as if it were a summer vacation. He certainly didn’t act like a man who’d been imprisoned for years.

Sharon Wray


Two months earlier, I’d had an itch to get out of town for a romantic get-away. We’d never traveled together before; so, when I’d broached the subject of us sharing a long weekend, he seemed enthusiastic about the idea. So interested, his face lit up like an Edison bulb.

Vicki Batman


Gardener lifted his cards one-by-one, and the expression of glee that passed over his face made Matt’s stomach drop through the floor. The vision he had of a beach vacation with a hot babe faded.

Her clothes, which probably cost more than his monthly car payment, were filthy and clung to her body like a lover’s hands.

Jacquie Biggar


Who the holy hell could this be? he wondered. Lifting aside the living room curtain, he saw Mercy’s car sitting beside his truck.

Claire Gem


I had warned her about the car towing, but she had brushed it off.

Joanne Guidoccio


Kate’s heartbeat echoed in her ears while she waited, and a very young officer got out of the car.

Kathryn Jane


Louie put the car in gear, drove down the block, cursed, then turned it around and parked in the same spot again. He was overthinking this as the food got cold. He dialed Jake’s cell.

Marian Lanouette


She waited for a stoplight to change. The cars, though many, moved at a leisurely pace, so different from life in Fort Worth.

Marsha West


The big oaf set me on my feet next to the car door. The glower shaping his mouth and creeping into his eyes said otherwise. “You should see a doc.”

Once I got the train rolling, however, there would be no screeching to a stop. All the pentup frustration churned out. My finger poked his shoulder. Davis flinched.

Vicki Batman


Paired with comfortable seating areas draped with Mexican blankets, throw pillows in a wide array of materials and colors, farmhouse side tables painted in shades of white, blue, and yellow, and the candles—hundreds of candles in varying containers and sizes, the whole thing should have looked like a train wreck, but he had to admit he liked it.

Jacquie Biggar
My Girl (Work in Progress)


“The tracks. We slid off the road, and mom’s car is sitting right up against the tracks. If a train comes, Daniel . . .”

Claire Gem


Such a talented and accomplished horsewoman, yet when it came to her personal life? According to rumors, she was a train wreck.

Kathryn Jane


Together they examined the train tracks in the area where Nadia’s body was found.

Marian Lanouette


Doubts and questions rumbled through her brain like a train on a continuous loop of track.
