Sometimes, the worst scars are those you cannot see. For most of her seventeen years, Morgan Selby dreams of a better life. One without beatings and contemptuous words. College scholarships provide an opportunity. But her parents, who reluctantly allow her to leave, refuse to relinquish their hold. Phone calls, threats, and surprise visits fuel her with paralyzing fear.
My yearly gift-wrapping fundraiser gets a lot of volunteers. But I’ve never had helpers like these three guys. Riley, Harper, and Logan are Rangers for the National Parks Service. They’re as charismatic as they are handsome. And they’ve got their eyes on me.
The Noise of War
Rome, 105 BC. Quintus Sertorius fought while the enemy slaughtered 90,000 of his brethren in the city’s bloodiest defeat. Battling night terrors and survivor’s guilt, he vows to preserve his beloved Rome and embarks on a covert mission deep into enemy territory. Sertorius grows his beard and disguises himself in the garb of a Gaul, all the while his stomach churns with fear of discovery. But in order to gain vital information about the invaders, he must sink deeper into their ranks. As he uncovers the depths of the barbarian’s depravity he alone will have to rise to Rome’s aid.
