When the Bough Breaks by Susan Kearney
Lisa Madison arrived at Brody Adams's ranch, claiming he'd fathered the newborn boy she had with her. Brody had no idea who she was, but it was clear Lisa and the child were in danger. They needed his protection...and keeping them safe was the only way to find out the truth.
Jodie's Little Secrets by Joanna Wayne
One night of passion with lawyer Ray Kostner had left Jodie Gahagen pregnant with twins. She never told Ray. Now, several years later, Jodie was running for her life, and Ray was the only man she could turn to. But that meant telling Ray he was a father...and that the killer was after him, too.
Susan Kearney used to light herself on fire four times a day. Now she does something really hot — she writes romantic suspense for Harlequin Intrigue.
While she hasn't performed her signature "fire" dive from a 10-meter platform in years, she started diving at age 10. By age 12, she'd won the New Jersey State Championship, and by college, she was a three-time All-American Diver.
While attending the University of Michigan, she earned a business degree that led to her diverse careers as, variously, a partner in a barter business, a real estate appraiser, a mover and renovator of houses, and a once- owner of three hair salons. Finally, in 1995, she sold her first book and became a full-time writer. She's currently plotting her way through her 30th novel.
Of all her careers, her favorite is wife and mother. She married her teenage sweetheart and lives with her husband, two children, and Boston terrier in sunny Florida. She now beats the heat not by diving into cold water, but with her new hobby — figure skating. Susan also enjoys writing science fiction, screenwriting, boating, and traveling to foreign countries.
