TheHeist_MEDA heist? A murder? It’s villain’s choice.

BLURB

A special-order art theft? Tedious, but seamless – until small town museum director Kara Daniels calls in the experts. Furious her favorite trio of priceless impressionist paintings has been stolen from its traveling exhibit on her watch, Kara is determined to save not only the paintings, but her future in the art world. She’ll stop at nothing to entrap the thief.

Ted Springs knows the underbelly of the criminal world a little closer than he might like—but he’s turned it to good advantage, first as a police officer, and now as detective for the Upper Midwest Arts Council. His job? To guarantee the security of the valuable paintings in the Council’s traveling exhibits.

Heat sizzles when Ted and Kara collide—can they work together, before it’s too late?

BLURB ~ Heat Wave

During an oppressive Iowa summer of drought and farm foreclosures, widowed Maggie Anderson makes a bold decision: She’ll merge her love of horses and her family’s three hundred and twenty acres into a horse farm and try her hand at nearby Prairie Meadows Race Track, where racing purses have just been augmented by the recently added casino gambling.

Down on his luck after being falsely accused in a racing scandal and banned from training, former Arlington Race Track trainer Ed Harrington has skulked home to Des Moines to drown his sorrows and wait for the dust to clear. He’s unprepared for the piercing robin’s-egg-blue eyes of pint-sized Maggie Anderson, who finds him at a flophouse and offers him a job. Can he pull himself together and meet the challenge?

As the two forge a tumultuous working partnership, they soon discover someone is out to get Maggie’s farm and will stop at almost nothing to force her off the land. Can they find and stop the culprit before someone is killed? Can they survive the far greater danger unleashed by the raw passion simmering just beneath the surface of their relationship?

EXCERPT

PROLOGUE

Scorching hot. It shouldn’t be this hot in February. Dreamily, she reached out her hand into the hazy air, then heard someone banging on the door and shouting. Strong arms pulled her out of the bed and urged her down the stairs. Horses whinnied frantically in the distance.

The scene shifted. A tall man staggered towards her, carrying the limp form of another man. Flames shot high from some building in the background. She strained her eyes trying to see better but failed to identify either man. Was he dead?

The shock woke her. Safe in her own bed, at a perfectly normal temperature, she tried to make sense of what had just happened. Maggie Magee Anderson never had nightmares. Should she be frightened? Somehow, she didn’t think so. In the dream, she’d been rescued. She’d trusted those strong arms—whose arms? Would she ever find out? Maybe, maybe not, but in her bones, she could feel the dream’s message: She’d be safe, even if she had to walk through fire.
