Savannah McLaughlin is running a little late. Those extra few minutes could mean she may never see her daughter again. The only clue Savannah and the police have to six-year-old Caroline's disappearance is a note with a cryptic verse of scripture. With no signs of progress, Savannah is desperate enough to call the one man she knows can help — the one man who absolutely despises her.
If anyone can find Caroline, it's Major Christopher Dane. The Army often calls on him to discreetly extract people from dangerous situations. But can Savannah trust him and the band of misfits Dane surrounds himself with? Or will the betrayal that took place in their dark past exclude any chance of a bright future?
Now that Savannah has her daughter, Caroline, back after a frightening abduction, life seems calmer. But that serenity comes to an abrupt end when twenty-year-old Rosemary Allen pleads for Savannah’s help after running away from her dangerously controlling father. But her father isn’t just anyone — he’s Mario Ferrante, the criminal mastermind who oversaw Caroline’s kidnapping.
Rosemary and her husband had planned to escape from Ferrante’s house together, but the plan was foiled and Rosemary had to escape alone. Now she is begging Savannah to help keep her safe and rescue her husband.
She knows it’s risky, but Savannah can’t resist taking on the challenge. And she knows one person who is just crazy enough to take it on with her — Major Christopher Dane. Savannah just hopes he won’t be able to see through her feigned indifference to him and discover her desperate desire to be reunited with him, even if it requires both of them to put their lives in danger...again. Savannah entreats the help of Dane and his team, and after some convincing, they all agree to take the assignment.
Will the team’s undercover plots to beat Ferrante at his own game be enough to win against such a cunning criminal? Will Savannah be able to withstand her resurfacing nightmares when Caroline’s safety is in great danger once again? And will she ever have reason to hope that Dane could someday let her into his complicated life?
Savannah McLaughlin has every reason to be afraid of the obsessed man behind the surgical mask. The injuries she has suffered while jumping from a moving car are nothing compared to the anguish she will have to endure at the hands of Mario Ferrante.
She knows she must escape from the man who has a seemingly endless vendetta against Savannah and Major Christopher Dane. What she doesn’t know is that Major Dane — who has always avoided commitment — has finally declared his feelings for her in a dramatic way by deliberately ransoming himself for her freedom.
Now it’s up to Savannah and Dane’s team of expert misfits to rescue Dane. But success will require more than brute force. So the team designs an elaborate plan to bring Ferrante to justice and free Dane. But will the recruitment of an unlikely ally doom the most important mission of Savannah’s life? Will a shocking secret keep Savannah from trusting the man she loves?

Married just over a year, with a baby on the way, Kate learns that her husband, and FBI agent, is dead. To top it off, the same people who murdered her husband have a contract on her head.

Mila Edwards is always assigned the low-profile cases-that's what happens to young cops who won't obey orders. Then, what seems to be a routine police call begins to look like something much more sinister-at least to Mila.
Once again she is faced with the dilemma of following orders or solving the case. However, this time there are children involved, and they are depending on Mila to reunite them with their missing parents. These kids are too well loved for Mila to believe their parents would abandon them.
Now Mila and the children's charming uncle Quin are forced to race against time along an unorthodox path in search of the truth.
Welcome to Haggerty, Georgia, where resident FBI agent Mark Iverson protects the colorful individuals in the area.
A young woman is found dead-with few clues, except for one suspect who is already on death row. Another young woman disappears under mysterious circumstances.
On the surface, the two cases seem miles apart. But a last-minute confession from an unexpected source sends Mark on a complex and dangerous mission to learn the truth. With unexpected twists and whiplash turns, Besty Brannon Green weaves another stunning novel filled with intriguing characters and page-clutching suspense.
When Miss Eugenia and her friends from Haggerty arrive in Hawaii for the wedding of detective Mila Edwards and surfer Quin Drummond, the group of ladies is ecstatic. They will be staying at the exclusive estate of a celebrity. But things get uncomfortable when their host, fading TV star Raquel Simons, causes a scene at a posh party held at her mansion.
Then Raquel's beautiful assistant ends up dead! But was she the intended victim, or was Raquel the one the killer wanted out of the way? More than one person, including her much younger husband, would benefit if Raquel were gone for good.
Now, feisty Miss Eugenia finds she can't keep herself from helping in the investigation. After all, Mila's wedding is next week, and she can't possibly have time to solve the case on her own. But soon Miss Eugenia finds her natural inclination for investigation could be dangerous — even deadly.

He soon realizes that his wife and children may well be in great danger. Now, despite chilling odds and overwhelming obstacles, Mark and his wife, Kate, must mount an offensive against unrelenting treachery and deceit.
'TIS THE SEASON, and in Haggerty, Georgia, that means Christmas programs, caroling, front-door decorating contests, and plenty of festive food to share with your sometimes eccentric neighbors.

Through faith, prayer, and the assistance of inspired friends, Kate soon becomes part of a modern Christmas miracle—and learns a powerful lesson about the true meaning of Christmas.

Kennedy Killingsworth Mysteries
Small-town librarian Kennedy Killingsworth thought that Midway, Georgia, was the dullest place on earth — until a fateful day that begins with a speeding ticket and ends with a suicide.
The ticket comes from Kennedy’s ex-husband, Deputy Cade Burrell, who seems desperate to find any reason to talk to Kennedy ever since his scandalous affair. And the suicide victim is Foster Scoggins, the leathery-faced resident who applied for a library card just hours before his gruesome death.
Rumors fly that Foster took his life after being jilted by a mysterious love interest. But as the investigation unfolds, murder becomes the name of the game, and anyone might be a player — including the four men who recently started competing for Kennedy’s attention.
Could the killer be Cade, who’s been more interested in her since the divorce than he ever was when they were married? Drake Langston, the dazzling billionaire who needed Foster’s cooperation to land a major development deal? Drake’s construction boss, Sloan, whose powerful build makes him a perfect suspect for the crime? Or could it be Luke Scoggins — Foster’s hazel-eyed nephew, the charming ex-Marine whom Kennedy just might be falling for?
After cracking Foster Scoggins’s murder case, Kennedy Killingsworth figured life in Midway, Georgia, would settle back to normal (meaning desperately dull). But that thought goes right out the window when a black-clad man climbs in her window — the one in her bedroom, that is.
As she’s startled awake by a hand clamped across her mouth, Kennedy’s heart pounds even faster when she realizes the hand belongs to Sloan, the gorgeous and somewhat terrifying construction worker who reveals a surprising alter ego. Given the fact that he once saved her life, Kennedy doesn’t protest as Sloan stows federally classified information in her not-quite antique Tiffany lamp.
But then the sun comes up and things get even more complicated. Amidst gossip about her ex-husband shopping for engagement rings, Kennedy heads to the cemetery for Midway’s annual Decoration Day, when residents beautify the graves and then picnic among the dead. Tragically, transient artist Jarrard Dupree soon joins the dead when he’s accidentally run over by a bunch of college kids.
Yet when JD’s terrible paintings suddenly begin drawing dazzling offers from New York art dealers, Kennedy knows at least one of her neighbors has blood on his hands. Intrigue builds in high Southern style as Kennedy’s investigation reveals which townsfolk are foes, which are friends—and which may become more than a friend.
As Kennedy Killingsworth prepares to step into the next phase of her life alongside her soon-to-be husband, Luke, the past reemerges and interrupts with full force. Luke is suddenly called away to testify at a Marine Corps trial and is forced to leave Kennedy soon after they are declared husband and wife.
Then an old business associate, Drake Langston, announces he is returning to Midway to finish renovating the town and needs Kennedy’s help to smooth things over with the locals. Kennedy jumps on board to distract herself from Luke’s absence. Little does she know that there will soon be plenty to distract her.
After an unexplainable prison van accident leaves a woman dead and three prisoners missing, the town feels rattled and worried. As Kennedy (and her ex-husband, Cade) gets involved in investigating the crash, more and more mysterious events unfold, and if she’s not careful, she could be the next murder by the way.
