If you can't wait for the next fast paced action from Linda Lael Miller, gripping sexy suspense of Linda Howard and enjoyed the Sign of Seven Supernatural Thriller Series of Nora Roberts then you'll love "The Choice"

A Freak Accident.

A Drug Bust Gone Bad.

One Haunting Question. What would you do for someone you love?

Before her granny died, Marcie Hollis had been spiritually attuned to Mother Earth and the spirits around her, honing her gift. Then she meets Dan McKenzie, a man she believes to be the knight in shining armor she's been searching for all her life. However, Dan is not who he appears to be. He lures Marcie into his dark world of lies, greed and drugs. But fate intervenes during Marcie's illicit trip for Dan to New Orleans, when she's robbed and accosted in the crowded airport. When she gets knocked down, her head slams on the concrete floor, and she loses her memory, all right in the path of DEA Agent Sam Carre.

Arriving in a crowded airport in New Orleans with his reputation and loyalty in question after being set up as the leak in a six month DEA investigation, Sam has come home. Even though Sam is tired, disillusioned and haunted by a past that gives him no peace, he stops to help an attractive stranger when she falls in front of him. In an act of chivalry, he takes her to his home until the police can identify her. When questions arise about Marcie and what she's involved in, the answers lead back to Sam's investigation in the Pacific Northwest.

When her illusive memory returns, this complex case pushes them both to explain the unexplainable, brings them face to face with a generations-old evil now incarnate again and leaves Sam with a haunting question. Was Marcie set up or is this a game she's playing? Sam is forced to make a choice: walk away from the attraction connecting them or risk losing everything.

THE FORGOTTEN CHILD, an Amazon #1 Bestselling Western Romance

He wasn't looking to love again. But what he got was a woman who shook his lonely bitter world upside down, and touched him in a way no other woman could.

Emily Nelson, a courageous young mother, ends a loveless bitter marriage and strikes out on her own. She answers an ad as a cook and live in caregiver to a three-year-old boy on a local ranch. Ranch owner Brad Friessen hires and moves in Emily and her daughter. But Emily soon discovers something's seriously wrong with his boy. And the reclusive difficult man that hired her, can't see the behavior and how delayed his son is. So Emily researches, until she stumbles across what she suspects is the soft signs of autism. Now she must tell him. Give him hope, and help him come to terms with this neurological disorder--to take the necessary steps to get his child the help he needs.

As their lives become intertwined, it's unavoidable the attraction--the connection that sparks between them. And just as they're getting close, Brad's estranged wife Crystal returns after abandoning them two years earlier. In amongst the shock and confusion there's one disturbing fact Brad can't shake. How does she know so much of his personal business, the inner working of the ranch and Emily's relationship with his son?

Crystal must've had a plan as she somehow gains the upper hand, driving a wedge in the emotional bond forged between Brad, Emily and the children. The primary focus for care and therapy of three-year-old Trevor is diverted. The lengths Crystal will go--the lies--the greed, just to keep what's hers are nothing short of cold and calculating. Emily's forced out of the house. Brad fights to save his boy--to protect what's his. And struggles over his greatest sacrifice--Emily, and the haunting question--has he ultimately lost her forever?
