Risking his neck is all in a day's work…

Tough and relentless, Cord Romero lives for the adrenaline rush that comes with being a mercenary for hire. But this time the job is personal. Having barely survived a murder attempt from an elusive enemy, Cord is determined to neutralize his foe—the head of a multinational corporation that fronts a child labor ring. In order to get closer to his target, Cord joins forces with the Lassiter Detective Agency, where he’s reunited with his childhood friend Maggie Barton. Maggie is no longer the impressionable young woman he once knew. She is now strong, independent and in charge of her own life—and, professionally, Cord’s equal. She has one vulnerability: a tragic secret from her past that threatens her relationship with Cord…and sets her up as a pawn for his deadly enemy.

Cord cannot afford to be distracted during the most important case of his life. But Maggie plays an indispensable part in unraveling the links to his enemy’s crimes. Forced to trust each other for their very survival, Cord and Maggie embark on a lethal game of cat and mouse that can leave only one winner standing.

SNOW KISSES (originally published November 1983 in Silhouette Desire #102 and reissued numerous times)

When Abby went home to the Big Sky country she’d always loved, she seemed more like a wounded bird than a glamorous fashion model. After what had happened in New York she could never let any man touch her again. But Cade McLaren had never been like any other man. In his powerful arms she began to forget the terror and feel the surge of desire once more. If only his passion burned from love instead of pity. Abby didn’t want Cade’s charity. She hungered for that other, all-consuming blaze of love she’d sparked in him one summer night a lifetime ago.

As the holiday season approached, the residents of Jacobsville were whispering about Janie Brewster’s hopeless crush on Leo Hart. Up till now, all her efforts to lasso the dynamic cattleman had crumbled quicker than those mouthwatering biscuits that Hart men coveted. However, this time the starry-eyed debutante had come up with the perfect self-improvement campaign to dazzle Leo — she’d become a courageous cowgirl! Still, her sudden transformation seemed to rouse Leo’s formidable temper more than ever. But wait . . . was it hot-blooded hunger — not dark disdain — that gleamed in his eyes when they melted into those smoldering kisses beneath the mistletoe? Could the last Hart bachelor be on the verge of taking Janie as his bride?

With only a quick glance at Nell Regan, a man might miss the beauty in the shy face, or the sexy figure hidden beneath the shapeless clothes. Nell had learned the hard way that she had nothing to offer a man. Her future was here, running her Arizona dude ranch...alone.

Then Tyler Jacobs arrived...a man who knew what it was like to be alone and alienated. He yearned to kiss away the pain he saw in Nell’s deep brown eyes.

But Nell wasn’t about to mistake kindness for love. Not again. Yet would denying her own desire destroy her one chance for happiness?

SUTTON’S WAY "Long, Tall Texans #4" (originally published September 1989 in Silhouette Romance #592 and reissued numerous times)

Tragedy had sent music superstar Amanda Callaway to the Wyoming mountains to heal. What she found was another battle to fight... Quinn Sutton.

Snowbound at his ranch, Amanda was glad Quinn was unaware of her real identity. With a chip on his shoulder the size of the Tetons, the rugged mountain man had no use for the opposite sex — especially city women who ran in the fast lane.

But what Quinn didn’t realize was how special his world seemed to Amanda. Battling his misconceptions about her, she vowed to prove she shared the same old-fashioned values... and desires. When he learned who she was, though, would she lose him forever.

Returning to Australia as a certified teacher, she was ready to put John to the test. And ready or not, he was about to learn a lesson he would never forget.

Allison Hathoway’s life was about healing. And she was good at it. Or had been good at it until the tragedy in South America. Now she couldn’t even fix herself. She didn’t know how to go on, didn’t know what to do, or who to be.

She had that in common with Gene Nelson. After the rancher found out the truth about his father, he’d realized his whole life was a lie.

But underneath their explosive passion, Allison and Gene found comfort in each other’s wounded souls. And a chance to start over.

Carson Wayne had come to Mandelyn Bush with the ultimate request: he needed her to teach him how to treat a lady. No doubt he’d asked the right person—Mandelyn was as polished and feminine as Carson was rough and reclusive. And she was the only person who could reason with him during one of his barroom brawls.

It was too intriguing a challenge to turn down. Mandelyn was curious about what lay beneath the outlaw’s hard shell. She suspected that the renegade was really a caring and sensitive man.

But what she hadn’t counted on were her own feelings for this irresistible rebel.

“The boss is fading fast. His last request is that a writer compose his memoirs” was Aunt Lillian’s plea. Helping the elderly oilman seemed natural to Mari. But Ward Jessup was anything but old and sickly....

“Poor little Mari,” her aunt fretted. “I’m worried about her state of mind-deep emotional scars.” Ward’s sympathy went out to Lillian’s niece, and he invited Mari to the ranch. But the woman who arrived was hardly a helpless little girl....

Though they knew they had been tricked, neither could fight the power of Cupid’s magic arrow.

NELSON’S BRAND by Diana Palmer (originally published January 1991 in Silhouette Desire #681 and reissued numerous times)

CAN HE GET PAST BETRAYAL?

Allison Hathoway’s life was about healing. And she was good at it. Or had been good at it until the tragedy in South America. Now she couldn’t even fix herself. She didn’t know how to go on, didn’t know what to do, or who to be.

She had that in common with Gene Nelson. After the rancher found out the truth about his father, he’d realized his whole life was a lie. He’d gone a little wild, and saw no reason not to give in to his every desire. And the minute he saw Allison, he wanted her. But underneath their explosive passion, Allison and Gene found comfort in each other’s wounded souls. And a chance to start over.

Also includes bonus book: LONETREE RANCHERS: COLD by Kathie Denosky (originally published December 2003 in Silhouette Desire #1551).

New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author Diana Palmer takes readers back to Jacobsville, Texas, where Hayes Carson is a man on a mission—for justice.

Bobby Carson had been the only family Hayes had left in the world. A long, tall and serious Texan, Hayes has always suspected Minette Raynor had something to do with Bobby’s death, that the bright-eyed blonde gave his brother the drugs that killed him. As far as Hayes is concerned, neither her looks nor anything else will stand in the way of him righting this grievous wrong.

Minette can’t get handsome Hayes off her mind, or off her back. Even though his investigation of her is annoying, as an undercover DEA agent that’s the least of her worries. Minette dismisses Hayes until she finds herself in great danger, and he’s the only one who can save her. Can she count on Hayes to believe the truth—and save her life?
