Book Description:

Once a decorated cop, Hawke has fallen from grace and has turned private investigator to make ends meet. His first case is a simple one: follow the woman, Maddie, and get pictures of her having an affair.

But nothing is that simple. Hawke is forced to intervene when the Maddie is almost kidnapped right in front of him. When it happens again, Hawke switches from stalker with a camera to bodyguard with a gun.

The lawyer who hired him is not satisfied with the outcome or that Hawke is looking into who is responsible for the abduction attempts. He threatens Hawke to get him to back down, something not in the investigator’s nature.

To protect Maddie, Hawke must take her along while following the few leads he has to identify who is responsible and why. The closer they get to the truth the more danger they find themselves in.

Will they find who is out to get Maddie before it’s too late?

Book Description:

One hundred thousand colonists don’t simply vanish… No bodies. No evidence of an attack. Just gone.

Ethan Walker hauls cargo, and an occasional passenger or two. Cargo is easy but passengers, not so much. He’s trying to keep out of trouble and make the lease payments on a private freighter he hopes one day to own, but when he arrives at Starlight Colony with what should be a routine delivery, things take an unexpected turn.

Everyone in the colony is missing.

Trying to get some answers, Walker heads down to the hellish desert planet, knowing the company that owns his ship will expect him to just leave. What he discovers is an inexplicable mystery. No one is left behind, and there are no signs of where they went.

He is obligated to report the disappearance to FleetCom – the local law enforcement branch of the government – and when Captain McKenna tells him to stay put and not to return to the surface until they can arrive to begin an official investigation, he must obey her orders.

Since the only thing FleetCom and his leaseholder both agree on is that he cannot go back down to the colony, following his instructions should be easy.

Yet, frantic for answers about the colony, his passengers make a desperate play that leaves him no choice but to risk his ship and career to return to the surface.

Even though it will likely cost him everything.

A divorced reporter on a remote assignment. An alluring cattleman who captures her heart…

City dwelling Maggie Donovan is trying her best to let go of her resentment after her high-profile politician husband of thirty-five years left her for a much younger woman. Her focus now is her job as a reporter for the Country Women’s Magazine, her two adult children, and her church.

But he’s lonely. He just doesn’t know it.

When Maggie is sent to the remote, mysterious Kimberley area to write about women living on isolated cattle stations, she jumps at the chance. A change is as good as a holiday, so they say.

Never did she expect to fall for the tall, handsome Frank Goddard of Goddard Downs.

But how can a relationship work when they live so far apart?

When the road is slow and dangerous.

When their lives are complicated.

And besides, how do you date when you’re going on sixty?
