BENEATH THE BADGE

First Responders #4

Working a short-term assignment in small-town Nova Scotia is just what RCMP officer Matt Parker needs. Traffic violations, some vandalism…things are pretty quiet. Until a call about a puppy mill brings back haunting memories of a case gone bad. Lucky for him, pretty veterinarian Lindsay Swan proves to be a great distraction.

Lindsay can’t resist the sexy police officer, particularly when she sees his tender, caring side. For her, relationships are bad news and accidents waiting to happen, so it’s perfect that Matt is only in town temporarily. And it would be easy to keep things light, until a local woman disappears and Matt’s darkest secret is revealed. Can Lindsay be the support he needs, or will she choose to keep her heart safe?

 

INTO THE FIRE

First Responders #3

Ally Gallant is used to being underestimated. While stuck being called flighty and scattered, she knows that the real issue is trying to find where she belongs. She thinks she might have found her place at the local animal shelter—until it burns and leaves the animals homeless and her without a purpose. It doesn’t help that she’s rescued from the fire by Chris Jackson, her high school sweetheart and former fiancé. She can’t even call him the one that got away, because she was the one to break off their engagement when Chris’s carefully mapped-out life plan became too much to take.

Chris has never really got over his first love, and seeing her in danger has resurrected all sorts of feelings. As they reconnect, and their passion is reignited, he starts to understand why she left three years ago. He’d like to start over, but at some point she needs to meet him halfway, if they’re to have a second chance at happiness…

IN THE LINE OF DUTY

Constable Kendra Givens isn’t impressed when she’s called to Jake Symonds’s pub for a break-and-enter. It’s the end of a long shift, and he’s been a pain in her neck since the night they met, when she arrested him for drunk and disorderly. But Jake’s a different guy than she remembers—he’s shed the bad-boy act but kept the good looks and charm. And when he offers to cook her breakfast, she’s a goner.

Jake knows he and Kendra got off on the wrong foot two years ago, but he’s not the same guy. As an ex-soldier, he’s dealt with a lot of his issues and is on the straight and narrow…for the most part. The sexy RCMP officer really rings his bell, and after a couple of dates it’s clear the attraction’s mutual. But can they move past their emotional baggage to make this more than a summer fling?

 

OFF THE CLOCK

First Responders #1

When Carly Douglas is run off the road, she’s terrified to discover she’s gone into early labor. Thank God for Gabe Brenner, an off-duty paramedic and guardian angel who rushes in to help. She hasn’t seen Gabe since before her marriage and subsequent divorce, but little has changed. He’s still strong, sexy, and oh-so capable.

Gabe can’t believe it’s Carly in the car. While his friendship with her brother ended years ago, he’s always had a soft spot for her, and seeing her in distress brings out his most protective instincts. In the days and weeks that follow, it’s clear there’s more than friendship between them as attraction sizzles.

But Gabe has a secret, and he knows it might just change Carly’s feelings for him forever. Can they move past the truth and into a future as a family?
