SYNOPSIS/BLURB:

Disguised as a boy, Marly joins a handsome Texas Ranger in the hunt for a con man and they must bring the fugitive to justice before giving up the masquerade and giving in to their passion.

When Marly Landers is fooled by con man Charlie Meese, she’s determined to bring him to justice–even if it means dressing up as a boy and setting off across the plains to find him.

Texas Ranger Jase Strachan is also after Meese, for crimes committed in Texas. He joins forces with the young boy in a journey that takes them to Fortuna, where a murder interrupts their mission. Jase is duty bound to find the killer, no matter the cost.

Marly carries out her own investigation and comes to the aid of Amabelle Egan, the sister of one of the suspects. But appearances are deceiving, and Marly is mistaken for Amabelle’s suitor, making her a target for the killer. Not to mention, Charlie Meese is still out there.

Under the Texas stars, Marly and Jase are drawn together by circumstances beyond their control, yet fate plots to tear them apart. Will Marly finally get her man?

REVIEWS:

A rollicking adventure of romance and True Grit… This is an historical Western romance in a style that reminds me of Hemingway. Although the descriptions are colorful and accurate, there are no wasted words here as the characters are developed through dialogue and action. The old West comes to life! Highly recommended. Goodreads

Good old-fashioned historic western romance with a kick!
Alison Bruce does an excellent job on setting the scenes and customs of the old west. History, characterizations, and the long ride of the heroes of the story are convincing for the time. There is lots of action and gun-play as they work together on a case in Fortuna. … If you’re looking for a dish of the old west with a dash of romance and humor minus the raunch dressing, this book is for you. Goodreads

“Alison Bruce captures the Old West in a delightful, if improbable, mix of romance, cultures and characters with UNDER A TEXAS STAR” Goodreads – Areletta Dawdy (4 stars)

“I cannot describe to yall how much I loved this book.” Heather (5 stars)

“An endearing story of betrayal and love . . . ” Amazon UK T. Tibbenham

SYNOPSIS:

For five years, Cassie Reeser has been her brother’s personal lab rat. Peter’s experiments have made her a stronger, faster, better human. And she’s not the only one – he’s been experimenting on others as well.  For five years, escape has eluded her.  Until now.  When she finds out he plans to sell her as a human weapon she knows it’s now or never.  To make her escape she’ll sacrifice family bonds and leave behind the one person who’s ever helped her.  Cassie’s learned to shrink from kindness and to never trust anyone.  She knows the day Peter finally captures her will be the day she dies.  To elude her brother and save the others, she’ll have to risk her body and her heart.  What she doesn’t expect is a chance at a normal life.

Seth Adams is used to sifting through lies to find the truth.  As a former war correspondent he knows what evils lurk in the world.  When he finds Cassie hiding out in his car trunk, her story sounds like a fantastical dream.  But, before long, he witnesses firsthand what she’s talking about when they’re attacked by a group of Peter’s soldiers.  As a result, he goes through his own transformation into a super human and realizes the extent of what Cassie is running from.  Cassie might not think she needs his protection, but he’ll die before he lets her brother have her back.

AUTHOR BIO:
Nana’s love of all things romance and adventure started with a tattered romantic suspense she borrowed from her cousin on a sultry summer afternoon in Ghana at a precocious thirteen.  She’s been in love with kick butt heroines ever since.  With her overactive imagination, and channeling her inner Buffy, it was only a matter a time before she started creating her own characters.

Waiting for her chance at a job as a ninja assassin, Nana, meantime works out her drama, passion and sass with fictional characters every bit as sassy and kick butt as she thinks she is.  Though, until that ninja job comes through, you’ll find her acting out scenes for hubby and puppy while catching up on her favorite reality television shows in sunny San Diego.

SNEAK PEEK:

Cassie stepped through the door without a backward glance.  Shoulders straight.  Eyes level.  Look ahead.  No one would be able to recognize her.  But she had to avoid using her power until absolutely necessary.  Sweat slicked her palms and she said a silent prayer to any God she could think of.   Luck was on her side. She moved through the brightly lit lobby, complete with eye scanners and armed guards.  No one noticed her.  And why would they.  She looked like one of the anonymous grad students working slave wages and long hours to make a name for themselves.  All too absorbed in their own daily movements.

As she rounded the corner to the employee area, she allowed herself one backward glance.  The resulting collision knocked her onto her butt.

“Oh, shit.  I’m so sorry.  I wasn’t looking where I was going and—”

Cassie blinked up at the man, the cold of the floor seeping through her jeans.  Her body tensed when he opened and outstretched hand.  Her instincts said to run, but his eyes told her she was safe.  Honey-brown and laced with concern, he stared at her.

She patted the wig to make sure it was still in place before taking his proffered hand.  Contact with his skin made her jump like she’d just gotten a shock from an appliance.  But instead of the immediate wash of senses and thoughts she expected, he barely registered.  All she noticed was how his firm, warm hand dwarfed hers.

He looked down at their joined hands before grinning at her.  His face lit up, showing just how handsome he was.  Like the hero out of a romantic comedy.

Say something before you screw this all up.  She cleared her throat.  “I’m fine.  Not your fault.  I wasn’t watching where I was going.”  Her voice sounded strange in her ears.  Husky.

“Are you sure you’re okay?  You look like you took a hard bump.”

Cassie shifted and tried to step around him.  The new guards were coming on shift.  Just her luck, one of the two, was the guard who caught her the last time.  “No, I’m fine.  Really.”

Mr. Romantic Comedy wouldn’t be deterred.  He danced with her as she shifted, never letting go of her hand.  “Okay, then at least let me apologize for being a klutz.  My mother always taught me to take care of a lady.  If you won’t at least sit down, maybe I can take you to dinner?”  He slapped his forehead.  “I should have led with my name.  Seth Adams.  It’s been a pleasure running into you.”

Cassie’s mouth went slack.  His voice flowed over her like warm rain in the summertime.  Had he just asked her out?  This was a territory completely unfamiliar to her.  Luckily, she watched enough movies to understand the concept.  “I’m sorry I can’t.”

He chuckled and shrugged.  “Would it help if I phrased it like journalistic research?”  His smile was infectious and Cassie wished she was the young intern he thought she was.  Dragging in a breath, she knew she had to mind push this conversation out of his memories.  Later, when someone came looking for him, she didn’t want him to remember her.

Problem was, as she pushed, she met a brick wall of resistance.  The shield around him was like a rubber ball, his brain so dense and slippery nothing could burst through.  Pain zinged behind her eyes and reluctantly, she stopped.

“I’m sorry, but no.”  Cassie pulled her hand free from his and bee-lined for the exit, never looking back at him.  Keep your head in the game Cassie.  She joined the queue for the metal detectors and adjusted the hair of the wig around her face.  When it came her turn to be searched, she tried to look calm.  She didn’t want to take any chances with the guard, so she immediately mind pushed him to do a cursory glance of her backpack.

“You’re free to go Ma’am,” he said, his voice a little dreamy.

She tucked her chin down and mumbled a thank you.  Ten more steps.   As she rounded the corner to the outer door, someone called out.  “Hey, wait a minute.”

For a millisecond, she paused, weighing and tossing out her options.  She had to stop.  She was weak and tired, but she could push someone if left with no other choice.  She didn’t turn heavy when footfalls thudded behind her.

A meaty touched her arm and a small squeak bubbled up without her consent.  Was this the end?  Had she risked her friend’s life for nothing?

“You dropped your badge back there.”

Cassie had to take the swipe card.  If she didn’t, she’d look suspicious.  But if she turned, he might recognize her.  Rock, meet hard place.  Turning on her heel, she reached out with sweat slick hands and snatched the card without meeting the guard’s eye.

His voice was stern.  “Security is extremely important here at Gentech.  If you need a refresher on security procedures, ask your manager.”

Nodding her acquiescence she turned and kicked up her pace, veering toward the main parking structure.  She had to make sure he wasn’t following before she accessed the private parking lot.  Three seconds passed before heavy footsteps pounded behind her..

“Hey.  What’s your name?  Are you new here?”  The guard’s lumbering body followed her at a quick clip.  Cassie paused and turned around knowing  she was cooked.  She watched as panic dawned in his eyes.

Make your decision.  Fight or flight.  She chose fight.

Milligan, Kansas. An ordinary, middle-American town. Or is it?

Twenty years ago Milligan was the site of a string of suspicious murders. The victims were all killed by those they loved and trusted—husbands, brothers, wives. Even stranger, the murderers had no idea why they committed such horrific acts.

When graduate students Mark and Courtney are sent to Milligan to conduct agricultural research they had no idea of the town’s bloody past. They soon realize Milligan is completely cut off from the outside world. As one bizarre murder follows another, they  dig into the history of the town to discover why the mayor and council filter all information in and out of town and why Genevieve McAllister, murdered years before, still has so much power over the people of Milligan, Kansas.

SNEAK PEEK:

“Max.” His name rolled around her tongue and she gripped the steering wheel tighter when her belly did a little flip-flop. She wondered if he’d stayed on his family’s orchard. Max’s dream had been to turn it into a profitable wine-making operation and it had been in the fledgling stages of transitioning into a vineyard when she left. Kara hadn’t kept track of Maxwell Grimes Stone II for two reasons. One being her focus on her own culinary career, and the other had been something she still refused to think about and a big reason why she had stayed away so long. She was sure Max had no idea what had really transpired to make her decide to leave. But coming home made her wonder.

Paul Talbot, Viscount Leed, is set on avoiding the marriage trap.  Though his family has money troubles, he won’t marry an heiress and dance on her leading strings.  He discreetly writes speeches for Parliament, using his words to passionately express others’ opinions.

REVIEWS:

5 stars!!
This is the first I have read from JoMarie DeGioia and won’t be the last. The book grabbed my attention from the first page. I loved how hot Paul and Michelle’s attraction was from the beginning till the end. These two completed each other in every way from their expressions to opinions to their fiery tempers. I loved that every time Paul let his pride get in the way Michelle fought him. Pride and Fire was a great book and a highly recommended favorite from this reader.

SNEAK PEEK:

Paul slowly turned toward the doorway and froze. He watched as, with a swish of her skirts, Michelle Thomas came into the room.

“Lord Kanewood,” she said, pleasure clear on her lovely face. “Rebecca! How have you been?”

Paul could only stare.  She was more beautiful than he remembered. Her fiery red hair was caught up behind her head, rich curls left loose to frame her face. Here eyes, golden brown and fringed by thick lashes, sparkled. And Lord she smelled of Lavender. His senses were so filled with her he barely heard Becca speak.

“Michelle,” Becca said. “How nice to see you again.” She cleared her throat and went on. “I believe you know Lord Leed.”

Michelle turned to face him. Her gorgeous eyes widened and he felt her regard like a caress. He quickly tamped down his response to her.

“Pleasure to see you again Lady Michelle,” he said coolly, bowing to her.

Michelle visibly stiffened and returned a look nearly as cool. She squared her shoulders and dropped a short curtsy, her full lips pressed together.

Becca smiled, drawing her husband’s attention. He leaned toward her. “Becca?”

Paul saw her give him a quick shake of her head to silence him. What was this?…..
