Her Desert Treasure
By Larie Brannick

Tagline:  Can their love save her life?

Synopsis: Inheriting her grandfather’s ranch is the perfect opportunity for Meg Reynolds to begin again. The land is her only chance to hold on to the last bit of family she had. But Jake Matthews has other plans. Despite the heat blazing between them, he’ll do whatever it takes to get what he wants. When someone threatens Meg and seems willing to kill her for her land, Meg doesn’t know who she can trust. And when she’s kidnapped, Jake wonders if he’ll ever be able to let her know he cares more for her than the land that stands between them…

     This story starts at a bad time for Megan Reynolds.  She has just lost her grandfather, the only family she had left and is still reeling from his death.  She finds out that she was the sole heir to her grandfather’s property and a large inheritance from not only her grandparents but from a long deceased aunt as well.  However, there is a problem with settling the estate as someone has blocked the transfer stating they have a right to the property.  Even with that bump in the road, Meg is determined to make the best of things.  She has always dreamed of making the property an education center for children and helping them learn about the rocks. 
     While walking around on the property she runs into the town vet, Jake Mathews.  He knew her grandfather and always came to the property to watch the wild horses.  While shocked to find someone else there and wondering why he was there, Meg can’t help but notice how hot he is.  Jake isn’t sure what to make of Meg, but he does know that he wants to get to know her better.  Soon they find themselves in a fake-turned-real relationship after his mom once again meddles in his love life.  However, they do not regret it and embark on a hot, steamy ride!! 
     When a threat to Meg’s safety is made and she is kidnapped, Jake realizes that he loves her and he is determined to get her back.  While facing certain death at the hands of her captor, Meg also realizes that she loves Jack and will stop at nothing to see him again.  Will Meg escape her captor?  Will Jake find her in time to save her?  In order to find out, you will need to get the book.  I really enjoyed this book and was very happy with the outcome.  It was a pretty quick read for me as I couldn’t put it down, I had to know who was threatening Meg and if they would get their HEA.  Meg and Jake were pretty funny together and I enjoyed their banter, there was several times that I caught myself laughing out loud.  What are you waiting for?  Get your copy today, I promise you will not be disappointed.

Author Bio: Larie is a Colorado girl, born and bred.  She and her husband live in a small mountain town where they are settling into life as empty-nesters.  When she isn’t writing, reading or thinking about romance, she works for two busy orthopaedic surgeons.

Goodreads Amazon Barnes & Noble Entangled

     Such a good read!!  This book kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time!  The book starts with Marcy Bradley being held hostage in the middle of a bank robbery.  Right from the beginning you had to admire her spirit and determination to not only get herself out, but the other people held as well.  When she talks the robber into letting her get him something from outside, she sees none other than her ex-husband JB.  JB works for the FBI and is determined to get her out safe.  Once the bank robbery is over, everyone thinks they are in the clear until shots are fired right at Marcy.       
     JB is determined to find out who shot at Marcy and why.  He doesn’t understand why anyone would want to hurt her.  A day or so later, Marcy convinces him to let her go shopping with her sister and promises to be safe.  He decides to let her go, but is going to follow her to make sure she arrives ok.  However, things do not go as planned as someone sabotaged her car and she is close to death.  JB manages to stop her car and get her and her sister to safety.  After arriving at the police station later, she receives another threat and everyone is one edge. 
     Since JB refuses to leave Marcy, they find themselves trying to denying the sexual tension between them.  To be honest, it is not only sexual tension, but strong undying love.  Marcy and JB have always loved each other, but their past always seems to keep them for having a HEA.  With everything that is going on, Marcy admits to JB that they are still married as she couldn’t bring herself to file the divorce papers.  To say JB is shocked is an understatement; however, he can’t bring himself to be mad over this.  Marcy has always been it for him and he has always wanted to be with her. 
     When another threat is made and they are made to find safety at an isolated cabin, things between them finally erupt like a hot, scorching volcano!!!!  Nothing like three years away from the love of your life to kick up the hotness factor!  I was so happy when they finally came to terms with their past and left everything out in the open.  I wanted them to be together something fierce. 
     In the end, was their explosion of love too late?  Will they find out who is after Marcy and survive?  You will need to get a copy of this book NOW in order to find out.  You seriously will not be disappointed!  

Author Bio: Award-winning author Claudia Shelton thought she wrote mainstream when she began writing, but before long, someone told her she sounded more like romance. Then those pesky alpha heroes and the women strong enough to love them, started running through her mind insisting she write their own happily-ever-after. Since then, she's focused on HEA with a splash of suspense or intrigue, becoming a two-time finalist in the Daphne Du Maurier (Unpublished) awards for excellence in mystery and suspense. During her downtime from writing, you'll find her sipping a cup of cocoa in winter's chill or enjoying a drink by the water in summer's heat--either way, she's always enjoying life. Her novel RISK OF A LIFETIME releases April 2014.
