MISSING THE GIFT (A CHANDLER COUNTY 3)
Ryan and Maddison's story
Her life depends on her ability to hide her identity.
Loving him may cost her everything
Eight years ago she was left for dead and Maddison Baer gained a life. It wasn’t her real life, but it was more than she’d had before. Pretending to care about her looks and social lifestyle was sometimes more exhausting than fun. Lying to her only real friend was hard, but if it kept her safe, she could do it.
Then there was Ryan Gramble. A man that made Maddison speechless.
Ryan has spent years running from one challenge to another. He’s come to Chandler County to face and deal with his previous traumas and come from under his family’s overprotective wing.

Still, he isn’t ready for Dr. Maddison Baer, with that beautiful face and those disturbingly familiar eyes…that lie.
Their attraction is instantaneous, but neither is willing to pursue what they believe is an ill-fated relationship. That is until danger comes perilously close to Maddison and she is forced to seek refuge amongst the lights and glitter of Chandler County at Christmas. As the threat looms Ryan steps up to keep Maddison safe only to find that they are in danger of falling for one another.
Will they give in and accept the gift they’ve been denying themselves?
MISSING UNDER THE MISTLETOE
(CHRISTMAS ROMANTIC SUSPENSE NOVELLA)
She was a wedding planner. Dodging bullets and playing dead were not part of her skill set.
Up until now, Rosalynn’s biggest challenge has been to convince Killian Kavanaugh to remain in her presence long enough to apologize for leaving him and town without a word seven years ago. What she wouldn’t do to go back to the glares and obvious avoidance of her former best friend.
When Rosalynn’s ex-boyfriend shows up at her door, bringing with him trouble of the more mortally perilous kind, she is forced to throw curtesy aside and seek help from Killian, if she can stay alive that long.
Sheriff Lieutenant, Kilian Kavanagh, has successfully evaded Rosalynn for the last two years, but one nearly hysterical call from the normally cool and sophisticated woman brings him running. Never mind that she hurt him more than he thought possible or that just looking at her reminds him of the most embarrassing night of his life. He has to make sure she stays safe, even if it’s just to get the answers to why she left.
Ensconced in what used to be her second home, Rosalynn is reminded of all of the relationships she sacrificed. Now that she is practically glued to Killian’s side, will she be able to get him to forgive her, save her, love her?
