Angel of Mercy
by Kathy Clark

What do you do when the choice you made was the wrong one? During the war, Jeff Hawkins's tenderness had been nurse Angela's sanctuary from the horrors of Vietnam, and his passion had been their salvation.

But Jeff had been wounded long before a bullet brought him to the EVAC hospital. Fearless, with nothing to lose, Jeff was the kind of soldier to whom they awarded Purple Hearts . . . posthumously.

Years later, when he encountered Angela again at a veterans' reunion, she could no longer pretend that the madness of war had triggered their brief, all-consuming alliance.

Could they have a second chance? Or had she forfeited any claim to Jeff's love when she did the unforgivable . . . married his best friend? Not all wounds are visible . . . and not all wounds can be healed by the soft touch of a nurse's hands. But Angela knew he was worth fighting for . . . and Jeff was tired of fighting.

But lately, the fights between the two of them are growing worse. So bad in fact, that Gertrude finally makes the daring decision to move in with her grandparents, in another state. Upon her arrival in the small town of Woodcrest Hills, Montana, Gertrude quickly, but reluctantly befriends a group of girls who act as though they eat sugar for breakfast. But just as she begins to adjust to her new home in the secluded town, Gertrude is informed of a ridiculous and unbelievable myth, hidden behind the trees of the forest that surround the her.

Backlash
by
Penny Childs

DescriptionOlivia isn’t like other girls. Olivia can do things. She can stop a man’s heart with the touch of her finger. But being different comes at a price. Locked away in a remote government funded facility Olivia dreams of having her freedom. Of living outside the fence surrounding the facility. Of having a life. But these dreams, she knows, can never become reality. Unless she’s willing to kill.

Oliver isn’t like other boys. Oliver can do things. Or, should we say, he can make other people do things. Like his twin sister Olivia, he is locked away from society. It is much too dangerous to have him outside of the walls of the facility in which he lives. He dreams much the same as his sister, of living on the outside. He dreams of all the things he could make people do. All the terrible things. But to get out he will need Olivia to help him. And so far she’s resisted him. But he knows all he needs is one little chance. Just one little chance. Because unlike Olivia, he is more than willing to kill to get what he wants.

Lillian Stone lives by one simple rule. Never love someone. Because they will only wind up dead. She knows this from bitter experience. You see, Lillian isn’t like other women. Sticking to the rule has been easy for her over the last ten years. But one dog and one lightning strike will alter the course of her life forever.

Roen Cutler finds Lilly standing on her back deck in the pouring rain with lighting striking all around her. He wonders if she’s lost her mind. Fear for her draws him to her. And one touch will alter the course of his life as well.
