WHEN SECRETS ARE REVEALED
Shelby Cole thought she'd put Bad Luck behind her. Bad Luck, Texas, that is. She'd left her hometown ten years ago, her world shattered and her illegitimate baby dead. Now she's receiving anonymous letters claiming that her daughter is alive. But going home means demanding answers that her father, Judge Jerome Cole, won't be happy to give -- and facing Nevada Smith, the man who broke her heart...
AND LIES ARE EXPOSED
For Nevada, Shelby's homecoming is a bitter reminder that his half-breed blood was never good enough for a rich girl like the judge's daughter. Even now, his bad-boy reputation hovers around him like a cloud of Texas dust. But the years haven't changed the way Shelby makes him feel -- and he can't ignore the idea that he may be the father of the child she's looking for.
ANYTHING CAN HAPPEN...EVEN MURDER
Yet Shelby's not the only person on her way back to Bad Luck. Falsely accused of murder and sent to prison for ten years, Ross McCallum is coming home to settle the score, especially with Shelby and Nevada. Now, as the temperature soars, Shelby's search for the truth promises to boil over into violence as a lethal web of revealed secrets threatens everything she believes about the man she loves -- and even her very own life... …More

New from the author of the national bestseller Shades of Jade: a story about the tragic loss of a son, the struggle to keep a family together, and the hunt for a murderer who didn't leave any clues behind
After a bitter divorce, Troy Kirkwood and his five-year-old daughter, Meika, move in with his parents, Nola and Ron. Troy is a devoted father and son. During an outing with his daughter he is called away--and never returns. Nola and Ron know that something must be terribly wrong, and Meika can't stop asking where her daddy is. Four days later the police discover Troy's body, with two bullet holes in it.
As soon as Vann, Troy's older brother, hears the news, he promises to find Troy's killer and bring him to justice. There's just one problem--the police have no leads and Troy had almost no enemies. To make matters worse, Troy's crack-addicted ex-wife has recently resurfaced and is demanding custody of their daughter.
The Kirkwoods are not about to give up Troy's only child. But as they struggle through family court and Troy's murder investigation, it takes their combined emotional strength to keep the family intact. And they slowly begin to realize that even if Troy's murder is solved, the pain of losing a child never really goes away.
