Romance on the Ranch Series: Dream Kisses; Honey Kisses; Baby Kisses; Candy Kisses; Christmas Kisses; Rock Star Kisses; Forever Kisses; Forgotten Kisses; Angel Kisses; The Last Kiss Hannah Tanner, daughter of Sage and Sarah Tanner from book one, Dream Kisses, has always dreamed of experiencing diverse cultures in countries other than the United States. To that end, she joins a nonprofit organization that sends her to a third world country to become office assistant to a doctor in the same organization. From the beginning, Hannah and the doctor develop a rocky relationship, but over time they become friends--and inevitably much more. Hannah falls deeply in love...then the unthinkable happens. Dr. Alexavier Wyndham, son of the Earl of Alderbury in Wiltshire County, England, has little patience when it comes to young women seeking adventure in dangerous countries, so when Hannah Tanner arrives as his assistant--when he specifically requested a male--he is furious and immediately dismisses her. However, Hannah's demure looks belie her stubborn refusal to leave. Excerpt: It was late afternoon and Dr. Alexavier Wyndham was exhausted. He glanced from his laptop screen to the door of his office when a crisp knock sounded. "Enter," he called. His office assistant, a middle-aged, no-nonsense woman over the age of fifty, poked her head around the door and grinned. Since Gladys Buttons rarely smiled at him, he frowned. "Yes?" It wasn't a secret that he and Gladys often butted heads, so her smile puzzled him. Then he decided it was because she was a short-timer. Her contract with the organization would be over as soon as he authorized her replacement. She said, "My replacement is here." Her grin widened. Now he was completely baffled. "Okay, show him in." He heard Ms. Buttons laugh as she closed the door and he got an uneasy feeling. A few minutes later there was another knock. He yawned and turned his attention to meeting his new assistant. He'd been up most of the night with a child suffering from malnutrition and the ailments associated with it. The child had been brought to the only doctor within a hundred miles—him. The poor mother hadn't been in much better condition after her three day journey on foot. He typed one last notation into his laptop, hit the save button, and closed the screen. The door opened and Ms. Buttons entered, blocking his view of whoever was behind her. With a flourish, she waved her hands and stepped aside. "Dr. Wyndham, meet Miss Hannah Tanner, your new assistant." Alexavier's eyes widened and then narrowed. He had specifically requested his new assistant be male. Life in a third world country was grueling, and other than cantankerous Ms. Buttons who could survive anything, he'd already witnessed the affect it had on young women in the organization. Often, they came believing their ideals were all they needed. He never doubted they were well-intentioned, but after weeks of sometimes unbearable heat, unusual food, little sleep, and the overwhelming needs of the population, the women began to fade. The sparkle left their eyes as they attempted to become all things to anyone who needed them. Alexavier pressed his hands onto the top of his desk and glared at Ms. Buttons. He said, "What the bloody… Tell me you're kidding."

The Norfolk coast is besieged by a series of murders - can Hugh Corbett find the killer? The Song of a Dark Angel is the eighth mystery in Paul Doherty's medieval series featuring intrepid sleuth Hugh Corbett. Perfect for fans of Robin Hobb and Michael Jecks. November 1302, and Sir Hugh Corbett, Edward I's Keeper of the Secret Seal, together with his manservant, Ranulf, and messenger, Maltote, are sent to Mortlake Manor on the Norfolk coast to confront an evil rarely seen before. A man's headless corpse, its head impaled on a pole, has been found on a beach and the pretty young wife of a local baker has been found hanging from a gallows. The scene is set for more gruesome deaths and Corbett soon realises that the icy wastes of Norfolk, where the eerie song of the Dark Angel wind chills those that live in the small villages along the coast, are just as treacherous as the silken intrigue at the royal court or the violence of London's fetid alleyways... What readers are saying about The Song of a Dark Angel: 'Paul Doherty's understanding of [the period's] political, social and religious history brings this medieval masterpiece alive' 'Paul's flair for the atmospheric and his skill with the mysterious combine to produce a page turning medieval mystery that I thoroughly enjoyed' 'Well written, good mystery that keeps you guessing until the end'

DeLaine is in 7th grade at Samson High. She is 12 and on the verge of turning 13; a milestone. Learning about the changes she's feeling in her body and mind, DeLaine realizes that physical feelings don't always mean true love, as she thought when she was younger. Nevertheless, she develops feelings for Kevin Strong, her psychopathic stepbrother's best friend and "King" of 8th grade. If he wasn't untouchable for one reason - Geoffrey's jealousy - then he is untouchable for his difference in age and status. Kevin doesn't share her thoughts about their relationship being taboo. DeLaine is obliged to push Kevin away to minimize the abuse she will endure if her stepbrother ever knows her true feelings for his best friend. She has a budding friendship with one of the popular girls, Bailey Rains, and is surprised when Bailey shows nothing but warmth and kindness to a "complete zero" like her. DeLaine's self-esteem gradually begins to develop as she spends more time with Bailey. Just when her life seems to be on an even keel, her stepmother comes home from the mental hospital. DeLaine's new defiance allows her a different way to deal with the abuse she constantly receives from her step-monsters as she navigates adolescence. The first book in the series is Dust in the Wind and occurs just after the tornado of Terrible Tuesday, April 10th, 1979 in Wichita Falls, TX. The journey of DeLaine Reynolds continues as she navigates the first half of 7th grade at Samson High....
