Deputy Marcus O’Connell is blindsided one night after a series of calls comes in from an unknown number, and the caller on the other end is a child. All he knows is she’s six years old, her name is Eva, and there’s someone in her house who wants to hurt her.
Marcus is the ultimate bad boy turned deputy. He knows everything about how to get away with something, considering he was one of the middle of the six O’Connell siblings. He never had responsibility resting on his shoulders like his brother Owen, and he’s never been the center of attention like his little sister, Suzanne. Marcus knows how to find trouble and talk his way out of it.
Now, as the head deputy for the Livingston sheriff’s office, he knows everything about everybody, and no one can pull anything over on him. It’s why he’s such a damn good deputy. But even Marcus dreads what cops know as the third call.
When Marcus takes the call the first time, he thinks it’s a prank. The second time, he knows there’s a problem. The third time the call comes in and is patched through to him, he knows it’s something he can’t ignore. The only thing is, the girl is terrified and keeps hanging up, and Marcus knows someone is in the house with her.
Where are her parents, and who is this mysterious girl who needs his help?More info →

"Un bambino e un matrimonio" è il seguito della commovente storia de 'Il bambino dimenticato' - Eddy Allen
"Stai bene, Emily?"
"Brad, hai cambiato idea? Non vuoi più sposarmi?" La sua voce suonava distaccata, in modo insolito, come fosse una piccola bambina smarrita. Le faceva male la gola, mentre lottava per respingere le lacrime, e sentiva che il suo sogno di vivere una favola le veniva strappato dalle mani.
Sposarsi e avere un bambino; per Emily e Brad è tutto perfetto, o almeno così pensano, fino a quando una sorpresa inaspettata non mette a repentaglio la loro giornata di gioia.
"Un bambino e un matrimonio": bellissimo!
- Per essere un romanzo breve, è stato difficile metterlo giù.
- Una bella storia d'amore, e qualche ostacolo sul cammino dei protagonisti che rende loro difficile sposarsi...
- Questa serie è semplicemente fantastica. Temevo che qualcosa andasse storto a Emily e non riuscivo a smettere di leggere.

As far as Marcus O’Connell is concerned, his situation is perfect. He’s now living with the love of his life, Charlotte, and they’re serving as guardians for Eva, a little girl he rescued whose mother is serving time in prison for a crime of which, in Marcus’s mind, she was unfairly convicted.
But Charlotte isn’t on board with Marcus’s way of thinking. Because her divorce is now final, she wants—no, expects Marcus to want the same things she does. One of those things is a committed relationship, which, to Charlotte, means marriage. For Marcus, though, marriage is only a piece of paper, and it doesn’t have anything to do with commitment.
However, when circumstances change for Eva, whom they both love deeply, Marcus is forced to make some hard decisions to keep both Eva and Charlotte, and he questions his reasons for not wanting marriage. What will he need to do to keep the child he and Charlotte now consider theirs?More info →

I’LL ALWAYS LOVE YOU: It was the hottest night of sex he’d ever had. Jeremy Friessen had heard the whispers that he was just like his father, with his looks, his bad ass attitude, and arrogance, and he’d never forget the night he’d spent with his best friends sister until she up and left, one day just three years ago.
GROUND RULES: With their wedding less than a week away, Jeremy and Tiffy discover they’re not on the same page when it comes to raising their son and dealing with the challenges that come their way. In true Friessen fashion, when Jeremy tries to establish ground rules, he soon learns that Tiffy isn’t the kind of woman anyone can tell what to do, and his strong personality could have her calling off the wedding and walking the other way.
A REASON TO BREATHE: Everyone knows the first time you meet that special someone: Your eyes connect from across the room, and you smile and work up the courage to say hello. It’s a simple feat for most people, but not for Trevor Friessen, who struggles to fit into this world and thinks he always will—that is, until he meets a girl who is as different from him as she is the same.More info →
