To Trust a Stranger
"She trusted her husband and got burned.
Now she's playing with fire and daring to trust a stranger."
Suspicion burned within Julie Carlson -- the heartbreaking, infuriating suspicion that her husband, a wealthy and powerful contractor, was having an affair. Not sure whom to trust, Julie turns to a handsome stranger... Private Detective Mac McQuarry ignores his better judgement about not mixing women and work when he's hired by Julie Carlson. Not only is she drop-dead gorgeous, but Sid Carlson was a player in Mac's inglorious downfall from the Charleston P.D. -- and revenge would be sweet indeed. But when Mac witnesses an explosive hit that targeted Julie, the tables are turned, and Mac and Julie become the hunted. With their fiery flirtation sparking into full-blown passion, they must crash their way through a maze of buried secrets and deadly deceptions.
Whispers at Midnight
"She came home to start a new life.
Now she's haunted by whispers at midnight."
Carly Linton returns to her hometown of Benton, Georgia, to open a bed-and-breakfast in the house she inherited from her grandmother. She's also dead-set on burying her former good-girl image by seducing the one man who can give her a guided tour of the wild side... Matt Converse. Matt is the local sheriff who was once the town's bad boy. He and Carly shared one magical night at her senior prom. But igniting the sparks of the past can lead to a blaze of danger: first, her house is burglarised, and then someone comes after her.
A mysterious enemy wants Carly out of Benton for good, and now she needs Matt more than ever -- to keep her alive. Karen Robards delivers a tour de force of suspense and sensuality in this sultry 'New York Times' best-seller.
