Kate

by Sharon Srock

Kate

She’s sworn off marriage…

Twice widowed, Kate Archer believes she’s better off alone. She’s not sure she could survive the heartache of losing another husband. Instead of romance she pours herself  into a project close to her heart: establishing a foundation to meet the needs of military widows—just like the grief-stricken woman she was twenty years ago when her husband was killed by friendly fire.

He’s still running from the past…

Nicolas Black has spent the past twenty years of his life—his entire Air Force career—trying to atone for the mistake that cost his best friend his life. Now he’s a police detective in Garfield, Oklahoma, but the guilt remains. When he learns of Kate’s new business endeavor, he wants to help. But being near the vibrant widow pushes all his buttons and makes him long for the things he’s never allowed himself to have—the home and family his buddy never had a chance to enjoy.

As Kate and Nicolas spend time together, a relationship neither expected quickly blossoms. But both remain oblivious to the tragic intersection that hides in their past…

The Monarchies of Belles Montagnes
Book 4: Mevendia

Prince Malachi Van Renssalaer of Mevendia is getting married. The problem? He’s never even met his bride. His father arranged everything, right down to the marriage contract. Malachi swears to himself that he will be nothing like his father in the ways that count – including his fidelity to his wife.

Jessabelle Keller would happily spend her entire life in obscurity, but her father once saved the life of a future king. Before he dies, her father is committed to seeing that king make good on his promise to have one of his sons marry her so she would be taken care of for life.

No sooner than Prince Malachi and Jessabelle return from their honeymoon, they find themselves dealing with both private trauma and the very public drama of groundless accusations from the press. Just as they begin to weave their fragile trust back together, a ghost from the king’s past arrives and threatens everything they’ve ever held dear.

Secrets have a funny way of coming out and this one could rip the faith of the country in their leaders to shreds. Malachi is determined to protect Jessabelle no matter what it takes, but will it ever be enough for her to not feel like a Hand-Me-Down Princess?

Iris and Samantha Evans have set their sights on Terri as the perfect stepmother. Their matchmaking plans include equal parts of prayer and deception. Will their scheming result in the wedding of their dreams, or will the harsh confrontation between Steve and the parents of Terri’s foster child be an obstacle they can’t overcome?
