Gabby struggled to find peace in a world that was filled with nightmares.
Now the killers were back. They knew who Gabby was. Where she lived. Who her friends were. They knew everything about her.

Melody Beck has spent her life taking care of others—especially her younger sisters. She fails when her sister Brynna is attacked by a band of killers. All signs point to the richest man in Texas, billionaire Handley Barratt, as being the mastermind behind the attack. Going after Handley Barratt is going to be the hardest thing this former TSP detective has ever done. In more ways than one. Going after Handley Barratt means dealing with his son—the one man she is still trying so hard to forget.
The world is claiming his father is a killer…
Houghton Barratt knows the media outlets are lying. His father is an good man and he'd raised Houghton to be the same. The only way Houghton can fix this is to go after the woman accusing his father—even if his own plan isn’t exactly honorable. Instead of Brynna Beck he finds her older sister Melody. He needs her help and he isn’t leaving without Melody—whether she wants to go with him or not.

She didn't need a lover…He wanted to be more than a friend…
Travis Worthington-Deane had worked his butt off to build his ranch into one of the finest in Texas, but that didn't mean he was all work and no play.
He was more than willing to play with Dr. Lacy McGareth. His pretty neighbor took everything far too seriously. It became a real challenge to make her smile.
Lacy just wanted to find her equilibrium again after a murderer almost killed her and her best friends.
The last thing she needed was to get involved with the governor's far too charming younger brother. But that cowboy neighbor of hers was good at getting through her defenses. Making her feel again.
Someone else wanted Lacy to smile just for him, though. Someone with an axe to grind against those damned perfect Deane brothers. Someone far too close to Lacy.
Someone who wants more than Lacy will ever be able to give…
Everyone jumped when Chief of Medicine Rafael Holden-Deane ordered them to. Everyone. He was back in Finley Creek to make the hospital the best it possibly could be. No matter what the cost.
ER Nurse Jillian Beck remembered Rafe from when they’d been children—his attitude now wasn’t any better than it had been then.
Especially where she was concerned.
Rafe was always angry at her for something...
Jillian understood anger, though. Ever since she had almost died, she had lived with her own fury. Her own questions. Her own fears. Until she wasn’t sure she would ever be able to heal.
Rafe had his own history of hurt to overcome, and the last thing he needed in his life was the one woman who snuck into his dreams at night. But he didn't have a choice. Jillian was everywhere he turned.
When she and the hospital they both love are threatened, there isn’t anything he won’t do to find the answers…

When she is attacked by a mugger after her shift one night, Cherise barely gets away. She runs straight into the arms of FCGH's Chief-of-Security, Vince Acardi.
Vince took his job guarding the hospital seriously, and he was old enough to know things were going to get worse before they got better.
When pretty nurse Cherise barrels into him, he promises to keep her safe until her attacker is caught…

She had survived. She could survive. She would survive again.
After a brutal assault and cancer as a teenager, Dr. Nikkie Jean Netorre wouldn’t let herself be called a victim. Nikkie Jean wasn’t a victim. She was a survivor.
Now a pediatric surgical resident at the best teaching hospital in Texas, Nikkie Jean knows there’s nothing she can’t make it through if she just keeps going. Even an F4 tornado bearing down on the hospital she loves so much. Even falling for Dr. Caine Alvaro, Chief of Medicine at nearby Barratt County General Hospital.
Caine, the one man she doesn’t fear. The one man she had almost let in. Almost. Just when he got close to her, they both retreated behind the walls they’d erected years ago to protect their hearts. Caine’s past was just as painful as Nikkie Jean’s.
They were two wounded people surviving in a world of hurt.
As Nikkie Jean fights the instincts telling her to run from the one man she could love, and Caine fights the urges to protect the first woman to break through the shell around his heart after the loss of his wife two years earlier, the pain swirls around them like the storms bearing down on Finley Creek. Until the only ones they can turn to are each other.
But the actions of another physician are far more sinister—and Nikkie Jean just might become a victim once again. Unless Caine could keep her safe from the one threat they couldn’t see coming.
Annie had learned long ago that she could get through just about anything life threw her way. She can even get through losing her home.
She has one more chance to convince the mayor to knock down some other neighborhood for his shopping malls and banks—or she and the three little boys she’s in the process of adopting are going to end up homeless.
The thought of confronting one of the wealthiest men in Finley Creek—one of the handsome, charismatic, larger-than-life Barratts—has her shaking and ready to flee. If the fight weren’t so important, Annie would turn and run, avoiding the fire altogether. She just has to get through this one meeting—and convince Mayor Turner Barratt to listen to her. Somehow.
Turner Barratt takes one look at Annie Gaines, his last appointment of the day, and can’t look away. Innocent, sweet, determined—Annie is one of the strongest, bravest women Turner has ever met. And he feels compelled to help her in any way he can.
Then, the storm hits. The world explodes around them, throwing Annie and Turner into a nightmare neither expects. But someone on the city council would rather profit off the disaster than help Finley Creek heal from the storm. And he will stop at nothing to keep Turner from succeeding. Even if it means someone Turner loves will pay the price—someone like Annie.
