"The Winter Soldier" by Diana Palmer Most everyone in Jacobsville, Texas, steered clear of taciturn Cy Parks. However, spirited Lisa Monroe wasn't exactly quaking in her boots, and electrified the formidable loner with her sweetly tantalizing kisses. Their fiery passion escalated when the winter soldier returned to the line of duty -- and claimed the lovely Lisa as his bride, to shield her from a revenge-seeking desperado. Clearly, Cy was getting mighty possessive of this enchanting woman who needed the type of safeguarding only he could provide. But who would protect the beguiling bride from him?
"Wolfe Winter" by Joan Hohl Officer Matilda Wolfe had been destined to follow in her family's law enforcement footsteps, but she swore she wouldn't fall in love as easily as the rest of the Wolfe pack. Not this Christmas, not during this case...and not with this man who haunted her dreams. His mercenary life had almost broken Mac Macdonough's spirit. But he had emerged from his harsh past and found his true calling. Now someone was disturbing the peace of this new reverend's parish, forcing Mac to work with the most infuriatingly sexy woman he had ever met . . . or wanted.
