The First Time at Firelight Falls
by Julie Anne Long

Single mom Eden Harwood has a lively daughter, a blooming business--and a juicy secret she's hung on to for ten years. She doesn't mind a bit that there's no room for romance in her whirlwind life . . . until six-foot-infinity, bass-voiced Gabe Caldera reminds her of what she might be missing. The principal of Hellcat Elementary is usually knee-deep in fawning PTA moms, but Gabe only has eyes for the fiery, funny, skittish redhead who barely knows he's alive. But this ex-Navy SEAL never fails to get what he wants. The passion is explosive, and the tenderness has them thinking about forever. But when Eden's past waltzes into town for a reckoning, her secret blows them apart. Still, Gabe will never back down from a fight, especially when the prize is Eden’s heart.

Beyond Control
by Kat Martin

When Victoria Bradford got engaged, she told herself to give love a chance. Six months later, she's on the run from her angry, abusive ex-fiancé with her four-year-old daughter and nowhere to go. Seventy miles north of Dallas, the Iron River Ranch is pretty much nowhere. That's what its new owner, Josh Cain, wanted when he came back from Afghanistan. One look tells Josh the pretty redhead with the adorable little girl will give him trouble of the most personal kind. But he's seen trouble before, and he doesn't scare easy. Not when "accidents" start happening around the ranch. Not when Tory's best friend back in Phoenix is abducted and brutalized. Not even when it looks like their current problems are only the tip of the iceberg. But if he gets too close to fierce, determined Tory, Josh knows his nights are going to be anything but quiet. And that's one possibility no amount of training can prepare him for.
