(Bestselling author collection, with Snowbound with the Bodyguard by Carla Cassidy)
By Linda Lael Miller

Linda Lael Miller

For Glory Parsons, “home for the holidays” wasn’t exactly the stuff of sing-a-longs and sleigh rides. In fact, she dreaded it. Dreaded having to face the things she’d lost—her brother, a casualty of war; and Jesse Bainbridge, a casualty of her own weakness. She’d never been able to tell Jesse the reason she’d left him abruptly ten years ago, after she’d promised to love him forever. And he certainly didn’t seem open to talking about it now.

Jesse had too much on his plate to get involved with Glory Parsons. He was the sheriff of Pearl Lake and responsible for his orphaned niece. So why couldn’t he stay away from the woman? She drew him, just as she always had. But there would be no kisses under the mistletoe for them until he knew the truth. If he was strong enough to face it.

Carla Cassidy

She’d been stranded by a snowstorm with nowhere to turn. But when all seemed lost, mom-on-the-run Janette Black saw the sign for Wild West Protective Services–and found Dalton West.

The loner of the West clan had no time for love and family. But protecting was in Dalton’s blood–and he knew when a woman carried secrets. He would take Janette and her baby into his home to wait out the storm, and bar the door from any danger. And when Janette’s demons tracked her down, Dalton would take on hell itself to keep her safe from harm.

Danger signs rise off Jase Kayrs like steam—the scars, the secrets, the strength. He’s got a mission, and he’s not interested in much outside of it. Except Brenna Dunne.
