A Nun With A Gun

Sister Felicia dislikes the serene life at the Blessed Garden Convent near Palm Springs, California, most especially the goats. Instead, at night she prowls the grounds to make sure a visiting nun and world-famous humanitarian, Sister Mary Grace, survives her stay unharmed.

When a mysterious vagrant arrives to assist the convent caretaker, Sister Felicia does not sit idly by. Is this man, who keeps his eye on everyone, something more than he seems, something deadly and dangerous?

Deadly, dangerous Josiah Gallagher has his own concerns. Who is the beautiful young nun who hides cigarettes to smoke when the rest of the nuns are sleeping? The nun who removes her homespun robe to swim in the convent spring?

The nun with the dubious calling?

When Sister Felicia is kidnapped by mysterious assailants, Gallagher comes to the rescue. Stranded in the desert, they are forced to rely on each other for survival. Sister Felicia’s courage convinces Gallagher she is more than she seems. She reluctantly comes to the same conclusion.

As their pasts and missions entwine, they must work together to guarantee their own safety and that of Sister Mary Grace. Will the attraction simmering between them be the answer to a prayer or a curse?

Can the Maid of Honor Survive the Wedding?

When private investigator Kelley Samuels's best friend and partner asks her to be the maid of honor at her wedding, she can't refuse. After all, wearing a frilly dress and dealing with the bride's mother are minor irritations.

Then on the trip down the aisle, all hell breaks loose. Between barrages of gunfire and a lunatic seemingly intent on wiping out the wedding party, Kelley has to protect guest and film action hero Griff Bryant. While neither Griff, intent on playing a real life hero, nor Kelly herself can capture the shooter, when the smoke clears, no one is really sure who the gunfire was meant for.

Kelley, a former child star, has a clear-eyed view of the film industry, and when she's cornered into becoming Griff's pretend lover and real-life bodyguard, she can't wait for the assignment to end. But as she and Griff encounter more violence, and his pre-teen daughter is endangered, too, Kelley finds herself deeply involved with the man she's supposed to protect.

Kelley knows she can protect Griff from harm, but how can she protect her own heart?
