Spring Meadow Sanctuary  

He broke her heart.
Now he's back to ask for a second chance.
Heart pounding in shock, Sharyah Jordan gapes at the outlaw staring down the barrel of his gun at her. Cascade Bennett shattered her dreams only last summer, and now he plans to kidnap her and haul her into the wilderness with a bunch of outlaws...for her own protection?

Cade Bennett's heart nearly drops to his toes when he sees Sharyah standing by the desk. Sharyah Jordan was not supposed to be here. Blast if he didn't hate complications, and Sharyah with her alluring brown eyes and silky blond hair was a walking, talking personification of complication.
Now was probably not the time to tell her he'd made a huge mistake last summer....

Made Perfect in Weakness  

Rovuma River, Headed Inland, Mid-1866.
Resigned to the fact that Papa has made up his mind and will not return to Zanzibar, RyAnne determines to make the best of it. She won't leave her papa to die alone. But with the arduous journey they face, Papa might not even make it a few days down the trail, much less the weeks it will take to reach the village where he's determined to build his mission station. What will she do if he passes away before they arrive? Recently she's seen a softer side to Captain Dawson, but can she trust the man to get her home?
The closer Trent Dawson comes to proving the identity of the slave runners, the more he fears for the Hunters' lives. He can't help but admire RyAnne's determination to do right by her father. But he can't let any of that admiration show, because the men he's after won't hesitate to protect their own hides - and that means danger to anyone close to Trent. He just needs to get his charges safely to the village, and then he can get on with his business. The problem is...the little lioness, RyAnne Hunter, just might have sunk her claws deeper into his heart than he realized.
