Posted September 29, 2012


Holiday Protector: Miriam "Miri" Duncan is just released from a Texas correctional institution after 432 days for embezzling $1,000,000. Accepting a ride from Dean Montgomery, the P.I. that stole her heart and turned her in, is just the beginning of dodging bullets and evading sure death. Miri is desperate to deliver the money to her siblings at Christmastime to help make up for being separated from each other as children. Dean intends to collect the finder's fee from his client, but changes his mind when he finds that the man is the same who deserted Miri and her siblings years ago and started a new family. Miri is only taking what she feels is due them in back unpaid child support. Neither she nor Dean could comprehend her father would rather hire thugs to kill her than to have his reputation soiled. Miri is no longer the one sought after by Dean but is now the protected one.

A Chance Reunion: Disgruntled Gage Chance, P.I., leaves the Chance Ranch in Texas in hopes of finding his sister, Cami, kidnapped as a small child 21 years ago. What he finds instead is a woman who resembles Alicia, his dead wife of 5 years. Similar and yet not the same, Gage has to uncover the woman's true identity. Confronted by Russians equipped with guns and a determination to kill them both, Elana, a gypsy Romanian, is only concerned that her child, gay, be safe. Hiding away together is only the beginning of the hot undeniable sex that makes it impossible for either of them to turn away. The truth is finally obvious to Gage that he has found his supposedly dead wife and can only think of protecting the one he still loves and making a family for the child he never knew he had.

Both tales are heart-warming stories of recovering a love believed to be lost forever. The stories are filled with excitement and lots of blood sizzling sex, revealing the true feelings of love found. You are guaranteed to walk away with a warm glow in your heart for both of the women in these stories.
