His at Night
by Sherry Thomas Details
Lord Vere is used to baiting irresistible traps. As a secret agent for the government, he's tracked down some of the most devious criminals in London, all the while maintaining his cover as one of Society's most harmless -- and idiotic -- bachelors. But nothing can prepare him for the scandal of being ensnared by Elissande and forced into a marriage of convenience awash with seduction and dark secrets. Set in Victorian England.
In Harm's Way
by Irene Hannon Details
The knot in Rachel's stomach tightened, and she squeezed her laced fingers, whitening the knuckles. The walls of the small, sterile interview seemed to be closing in on her. But her feelings about the Raggedy Ann doll are so strong, she knows she had to pass the doll on to someone who is in a position to investigate. Pausing outside the door to the interview room, Nick Bradley adjusts his jacket and grasps the knob. Professional, polite, fast. That's his plan. He shuts the door behind him and holds out his hand to the slim woman who is seated at the interview table. As she returns his firm grip, her slender fingers cold and not quite steady, he does a rapid assessment. Here's a pretty woman -- who doesn't want to be here.

The Mischief of the Mistletoe
by Lauren Willig Details
In this irresistible Regency Christmas caper, Arabella Dempsey accepts a position at a quiet girls' school in Bath, but she hardly imagines coming face to face with French aristocrats and international spies.

The Moon that Night
by Helen Brenna Details

But what would happen when they landed?

But when a prairie fire threatens Harmony, Reagan learns the true meaning of family, friends -- and home.
