Three stories in one handy volume!



She’s too busy helping her family survive the Depression. When she returns home to their Missouri farm, meeting her childhood crush, Trace Gentry, stirs up old dreams she tries hard to ignore. Kind, handsome and wealthy, Trace would never be interested in a poor girl like her—would he?

Successful businessman Trace is crazy about Callie, and he knows she thinks she’s not good enough for him. He’s clueless how to woo her—until he devises a way to prove his love to Callie—and make all her dreams come true.



In the aftermath of the Great Depression, Riley must go home and start over. But it won’t but easy for a man with a troubled past to win the trust of his Missouri hometown. Especially when Jolene Delaney, his first love, seems to believe that the new rumors about him are true.

After Riley broke her heart, Jolene poured her energies into teaching school and caring for her father and little sister. But she knows something is missing from her life. Especially when she comes face-to-face with Riley again. Can he convince Jolene that he’s truly a changed man? Or will he succumb to old temptations and once again destroy her faith in him?



Gavin’s task is to bring electricity to his sleepy hometown of Deer Lick, Missouri. But he doesn’t count on his wayward brother’s schoolhouse hijinks getting in the way—or the lovely teacher sending his heart into a tailspin.

Teacher Irene Delaney is a talented pianist who dreams of making music far beyond her small town. As electricity begins to hum, and then grow, between her and Gavin, she worries that falling for the striking man will douse her big-city plans. Can Gavin convince Irene she can keep her dreams—and the two of them can still have forever?

“If you love dragons, romance and a touch of intrigue this is for you! …Danger, spies, time travel and more… this book had my attention right from the beginning!” -Colleen C.

NY Times and USA Today Bestselling Author

Billionaire dragon shifter and Bloodkin Triad member Warrick Voclain is no stranger to power. But when his trusted steward’s beautiful granddaughter—all grown up and successful in her own right—seems to be using illegal magic in his presence, he is thrown for a loop. And the fact that she’s doing so to protect him? Alarming.

Samantha Vine needs to stay under the radar, or her secret gift will get her and her granddad killed. She didn’t intend for her quick visit home to stretch into weeks in Warrick’s company, but anyone striking at Warrick would also hurt her granddad. Only she has the ability to see what’s coming…though she’ll need Warrick’s help to stop it.

The use of such magic is punishable by death, and Warrick’s position on the Triad requires that he adhere to the rule of law. But the attraction between them is electric, stirring his blood and straining his control.

Adversaries wait in every shadow, and the easiest way to strike down a powerful dragon is to go for the heart…in Warrick’s case, Samantha. With fire and blood, he’ll reshape the world into one that’s safe for her. And those that don’t bend to his will? They will burn.

Navy SEAL Reece Browning sacrificed body and soul in the line of duty. He survived torture at the hands of America’s enemies, but lost his career and his voice in the process. Traumatized and desperate to get his PTSD under control, Reece escapes to Eagle Ridge Ranch. Under the big Texas sky, he finds peace, a renewed sense of purpose—and a woman who makes him feel like a man again. Her smile lights up his dark days, and her caress helps him forget the night terrors.

Ex-Marine Gina Wilson also bears painful scars: emotional wounds inflicted by men she once trusted with her life. She has fought hard to overcome her demons and build a good life for her daughter, and Reece is too intense, too damaged, too raw to let into her heart. Yet she’s drawn irresistibly to his steely gaze and heated embrace. No one else understands what it’s like to suffer in silence. And when Gina’s daughter is threatened, it’s Reece who risks everything to save the day.

Kathy and her sister, Samantha, have always been a team. Throughout their time as witches, they’ve taken out more than their share of bad guys. But after Kathy meets Will, who she learns is a demonic Dark Knight, her loyalties begin to change.

Meanwhile, Samantha doesn’t trust Will or his intentions. Still, Kathy can’t help but feel tempted by the dark side as she falls deeper in love with Will. Crossing over would give Kathy the freedom to do whatever she wanted with her magic. No rules. No limitations. It would also mean breaking the bond she has always shared with her sister, who has made it clear that she wants nothing to do with the dark side.

When Will proposes they take over the underworld, Kathy loves the idea of having power. But it also leaves her with a choice that will change her life: abandon her family and the life she has always known, or give up the love of her life forever.

I’d always wanted to leave small town Illinois, I just didn’t know I’d leave it for the stars.

I needed to get into Columbia College. I’d do anything to get in. With no other choice, I had my dad help me get an internship at Circe Operations Center.

Only it’s not an ordinary operations center.

Getting attacked on my first day on the job wasn’t exactly stellar, but staring into the eyes of the dark eyed boy who saved me, made me re-think every single thought I’d ever had.

But when things like war come up, I don’t know how far I’m willing to defy everything I’ve ever known for a future that is anything but normal.
