First Book in the Dystopian REIVERS’ INCURSION thriller series by KAYLAN DOYLE………
Katie Davis and her mother are alone the night a series of earthquakes rocks their isolated home. In the valley below Katie’s house, an erupting volcano spews lava, incinerating everything in its path. Power grids explode and communications systems fail.
The earthquakes force an ancient meteor up through the earth’s surface, bringing yet another disaster. Something … far greater than nature … is responsible.
Katie and her mother have no way to know the police are dead. No way to know inmates have escaped from jails and institutions and that people are fleeing populated areas.
For years, Katie has asked why they hide. For years, her parents have refused to explain while her military father trains her in weapons use and combat skills, with the expectation that she will protect her emotionally fragile mother.
Like the malevolent meteor, Katie’s training surfaces … with deadly intent. Pushed to the breaking point, how far will she go? What is she willing to do to survive?

SECOND CHANCES FOR TRAMPLED HEARTS: Book 1 in the Bear Creek Saddle Series (sweet inspirational contemporary cowboy romance)
A handsome rancher who lost his faith along with his young wife…
A waitress, abandoned by her cheating ex, and looking for a fresh start…
Allie Crawford buys half-ownership of the cowboy’s diner in the small mountain town of Bear Creek Saddle, Idaho. It’s all she can afford, and it’s about as far from Miami as she can get. Will it be far enough?
“Big Bad Bill” inherited the town’s infamous old diner from his great-uncle, who insisted it stay in the family. Bill knows cattle, not the restaurant business—so he’ll foot the bill to get it going again, and let the woman champing at the bit for her own restaurant handle running it.
Then Allie needs his help with renovations, and Bill finds he can’t stay away, after all.
Neither expects the friendship that blooms between them. But even beautiful evergreen trees and soaring mountain peaks can’t soothe the pain of betrayal and loss.
Faith may be the only thing big enough to heal their trampled hearts, and give them both a second chance at love…

Jeff Hughes is most comfortable behind the gleaming bar of Jenny’s, the bar and grill he owns, just as the two generations before him did. Situated on the square in the tiny town of Renlend, Kansas, Jenny’s and Jeff have been a sounding board for the townspeople. Now, each of those in his inner circle have all fallen in love, and if they aren’t already married, proposals have been made, complete with shiny rings.
Not Jeff. He’s kept quiet, silently brooding over the one woman who stole his heart the first time he saw her, over five years ago. He’d forget all about the dark-haired beauty with pale ice green eyes if he could. Except it’s his signature on her paycheck each week.
Kelly DeGraw grew up in a world completely unlike the one she’s made for herself in Renlend. This was the place she’d visited as a child. Complete with a gazebo in the middle of the town’s square, she’d fallen for its stillness, its beauty, and its charm. Everything was polar opposite to the past she ran from and was trying to keep hidden. She loved her friends here, and she didn’t want to be treated different if they all knew her secrets.
Coming back to Renlend as an adult had always been her plan. Walking into Jenny’s and falling for the owner hadn’t. If she didn’t love everything about her new life in this sleepy town so much, she’d risk it all and move on. Yet, part of her heart still holds out hope Jeff will eventually see her for more than a dependable employee.

FAMILIAR, Black Cat Detective, RETURNS! Only .99 cents
Back in 1990 I wrote a romantic mystery about a savvy black cat, Familiar. He had escaped from a research facility and was taken in by a young woman, Eleanor. But Familiar, who saw himself as something of a Humphrey Bogart character, had a dark secret—one that put Eleanor and veterinarian Peter Curry in grave danger.
At the time, I was writing as Caroline Burnes for Harlequin Intrigue. Tahti Carter, my fabulous editor, suggested I make Familiar a series. And I wrote 17 Familiar stories. I’ve had some of the titles returned to me and I’m reissuing them, beginning with the very first, FEAR FAMILIAR, followed by TOO FAMILIAR in May, and THRICE FAMILIAR in June.
But in July—I’m launching a new series. Trouble, son of Familiar. And I have some big, big surprises in store for the many readers who have constantly requested the return of the black cat. Exciting!
So refresh your memory about Familiar at this special price—or join in the fun for the first time. The black cat detective is back!
Originally published March 1990, writing as Caroline Burnes in the Fear Familiar Mystery series in Harlequin Intrique #134 and several reissues.
