Carlin Reed lives in fear, off the grid, moving from place to place. So Battle Ridge, Wyoming, a small town in the middle of nowhere, seems like a good place to lie low for a while. But after becoming cook and housekeeper to cattle rancher Zeke Decker, Carlin suspects that she's made her first mistake. Rugged, sexy, and too distracting for his own good, Zeke is pure temptation mixed with something deep and primal that makes Carlin feel almost safe. Soon things are getting way too hot in the kitchen. Zeke doesn't challenge Carlin's terms: cash, dead bolts, and no questions. It is easy to see that she's a woman in trouble. Problem is, he's so blindsided by his attraction to her he can't think straight. Zeke tries to stay all business, no complications - but that game plan is sabotaged the second Carlin gets under his skin. And when her terrifying past follows her to the ranch, Carlin faces a heartbreaking choice: run away from the man she loves, or put him in the crosshairs of a madman.
Carlin Reed, who is hiding from a murderous stalker, takes a job as cook and housekeeper to cattle rancher Zeke Decker and has trouble resisting her attraction to him, despite her worries about her past catching up to her.

Book 1: ‘The Fox and the Bear’ A YOUNG WARLORD ARISES Arthur, at age fifteen, was the winner of a great battle between British and Saxon forces, seizing the day from his own supreme commander, Ambrosius Aurelianus. This battle causes Uthyr Pendragon, Arthur’s father, to formally reject his son—through fear of Arthur’s growing power. This rejection forces Arthur to begin his rise to take full control of Britain’s armies with the aid of his first cousin, Medraut, the son of Lot, Uthyr’s Pendragon’s younger brother. Yet Arthur’s rise becomes Bedwyr’s greatest challenge: Prince Bedwyr, called the Fox, and Arthur’s foster-brother, is the narrator of ‘The Silurian’ series, and it is through his eyes, through his power and passion, that the great saga of Arthur’s life in seen and told. Yet life with the charismatic Arthur is not always easy for the Fox—for Arthur is a challenge in himself. And when Arthur’s power rises, Bedwyr’s life begins a downward slide into rebellion, and he leaves on a lone path of confusion to fight his inner demons, to find who he really is as his great friend and foster-brother rises higher and higher—high enough for the young Arthur to face his own father, Uthyr, in battle for the right to fly the Red Dragon banner of the Pendragon Warlords. Arthur’s battles will one day make Bedwyr the Fox a hero, if only he can stand firm as Arthur’s first man, his shield-bearer and brother-in-arms; stand to tell the tale of The Silurian in his own passionate words.
On a moonlit night in 1903, a mysterious young woman flees alone across the Canadian wilderness, one quick step ahead of her pursuers. Mary Boulton is nineteen years old, half mad, and widowed - by her own hand. Tearing through the forest with dogs howling in the distance, she is desperate, her nerves burning, and she is certain of one thing only - that her every move is being traced. Two red-headed brothers, rifles across their backs, lurch close behind her: monstrous figures, identical in every way, with the predatory look of hyenas. She has murdered their brother, and their cold lust for vengeance is unswerving. As the widow scrambles to stay ahead of them, the burden of her existence disintegrates into a battle in which the dangers of her own mind become more menacing than the dangers of the night. Along the way, the steely outlaw encounters a changing cast of misfits and eccentrics. Some, like the recluse known as 'The Ridgerunner', provide a brief respite from her solitude; others, like the Reverend Bonnycastle, offer support only to reveal that they too have their own demons raging inside. As she is plunged further away from civilisation, her path from retribution to redemption slowly unfurls. A startling transformation of the classic western narrative, The Outlander is the haunting tale of one young woman's deliberate journey deep into the wild.
From Nicole Alexander, the 'heart of Australian storytelling', comes an epic historical novel that takes three brothers from the drought-stricken outback of Queensland to the horror of the trenches in World War One. They went to war and fought for love ... Although Madeleine has grown up in the shadow of her grandfather, the renowned artist David Harrow, she knows little about him. For David died long before she was born, and his paintings sold off to save the family property, Sunset Ridge. Now, decades on, with the possibility of a retrospective of David’s work, Madeleine races to unravel the remarkable life of her grandfather, a veteran of the Great War, unaware that his legacy extends far beyond the boundaries of the family property... It’s 1916, and as Europe descends further into bloodshed, three Queensland brothers -Thaddeus, Luther and David Harrow - choose freedom over their restricted lives at Sunset Ridge. A ‘freedom’ that sees them bound for the hell of the trenches. With the world on fire around them, the brothers bear witness to both remarkable courage and shocking carnage. But they also come to understand the healing power of love – love for their comrades, love for each other, and love for the young, highly spirited girl they left back home... This is a story of bravery and misadventure, of intolerance and friendship, most of all it is the story of three young men who went to war and fought for love.
