Recipient of silver medal for best romance!     


Jo and Jordan tied the knot five years ago in a mud hut in the middle of Zambia far from all their friends and family. Now they're in Hawaii for a big wedding vow renewal ceremony elaborately planned by Jo's mother. There's just one small issue, something’s wrong with the wedding license issued in Africa and only Jo knows that she wasn’t legally married in Zambia. Enter her old flame, the man she was running from when she met Jordan. He’s on the island and with his two kids, both of whom are named after her. Coming face to face with her past, just as she's trying to brave her future, forces Jo to make some big decisions. It might even force her to grow up. Luckily she doesn't have to do any of it on her own; her two best friends are there to hold her hand and help her down the right path. But what path will she choose? Despite all the upheaval and complications, Jo will eventually walk down the aisle to say “I do” to the man who completes her. But will the wedding be the one Jo's mother planned? Or will it be something much, much better?

THE SIEGE

BY JAMES HANNA

On November 23, 2000, one hundred inmates hold twelve guards hostage in the laundry dorm of The Indiana Penal Farm.  The emergency squads are massed along the fence of the prison, awaiting the order to attack, while sharpshooters are perched like crows on top of the administration building.  Tom Hemmings, a dorm counselor, has been conscripted to negotiate a truce with the hostage takers.  But Tom feels betrayed by the prison’s privatization of services, which has sparked the standoff by forcing cut-rate commodities upon the inmates.  And so he must put his trust in Chester Mahoney, a chatty pedophile who leads the insurrection, and Jamal Hassan, a towering Muslim inmate with an agenda of his own.  As he enters the prison, Tom’s heart starts to hammer.  He knows he is entering a shadowland from which he may never return.

WINDOW ON PIKE PLACE

BY MARTIN F. SORENSEN


Rachel McAlister, a former Army MP awarded the Silver Star in Afghanistan, saves Joshua Todaro’s life on the battlefield and he gives her the bullet in gratitude. She gives him her heart, and back home in Seattle he asks her to marry him. But someone murders Joshua in his apartment above Pike Place Market, and frames Rachel. Diane Scanlan, her best friend in war and peace, who won a Bronze Star in the same battle, is a prime witness for the prosecution. Anyone else would give up. Not Rachel. Now, as she goes to trial, she holds on to the only two things in the world that she can trust: her love for Joshua, and the battlefield bullet he gave her. She has to hope that somehow, someway, she can figure out who set her up before it’s too late.
