He’s a by-the-book Texas sheriff; she’s on the run from a murder conviction… When a tornado provides Rosalyn with the opportunity to escape the gallows, she collects her daughter Lucy and flees. They travel far enough West that Rosalyn believes she’s gone to the ends of the earth. She hopes she and Lucy will be safe in this remote North Texas town where she embarks on a new life as a dressmaker. If only she could avoid contact with people, especially the handsome sheriff who pops up every time she turns around. She fears either she or her chatterbox daughter may slip and reveal too much. Joel Stone has been content with his life, even if it’s not the one he’d dreamed. His younger brothers are married and living nearby, his aunts have moved to Radford Springs, and he is respected for the efficient job he does as sheriff. When he meets the new widow in town, his instant attraction staggers him. She appears uninterested, but he is determined to win her hand in marriage. Read more on Amazon.

Vampiris Sancti: The Immaculate Adventures of One Florian Ribeni by Katri Cardew. The immaculate creature known as Florian Ribeni prized being a Vampire for he was vain enough to choose beauty and youth over wisdom and wise enough to appreciate a life without the boundaries of death, illness, or poverty. Not quite tied to gender preference Florian spent his nights lusting after the unattainable or engaging in sexual misadventures while shirking anything resembling responsibility. The last to serve his community he preferred the lighter aspects of life, fashion, gossip, good wine laced with sanctioned blood and seduction. Florian loved seduction above all things and if not for a troublesome Elf, a demon bandit, his personal anger at witnessing the demise of Vampires, he would be leading the aimless, artless, and trite life that he adored. Then there was the Pixie, an inebriated sot with sudden affections and even more sudden dislikes. Beb decided Florian was his new best friend and offered his much unwanted and erratic help to the newly conscripted Runner. Chasing after a deviant Vampire and running from a cannibal cult the pair was determined to save the world—if only an annoying Mage and some arrogant demons would keep out of the way.
