Steeple Hill Women's Fiction

Christian Retailing: Believable characters, a compelling tale and nonstop action make A Killing Frost∑a book that's had to put down∑A Killing Frost is about facing very real fears. Readers will enjoy the fast pace of the story, and the underlying message of trusting in love enough to overcome those fears.

A secret haunts Dr. Jama Keith as she returns to her hometown of River Dance, Missouri, and because of her new and growing faith in Christ, she knows she can no longer live a lie. If only she could avoid her ex-fiancé, Tyrell Mercer. But River Dance is too small for that. When Tyrell's niece, Doriann, is abducted by two of the FBI's most wanted, Tyrell and Jama combine their tracking skills to help in the search. Even as they draw closer to danger, Jama's worst fear is revealing her secret shame to the man she loves.

Can anything convince a well-bred Englishwoman to become a "wildflower bride"?

England-born Emmaline Bradford pledged her life to Geoffrey Garrett and then bid him farewell when he boarded a ship for America. Though Geoffrey planned to send for her within a few months, five long years have slipped by. And now Emmaline barely remembers her fiance.

Having Emmaline finally living on the sheep ranch he's built on the north fork of the Solomon River is a dream come true for Geoffrey. But his beloved is not the free-spirited girl he remembers. In fact, she wishes to get out of Kansas as quickly as possible!

Begging Emmaline to give prairie life a try, Geoffrey offers a compromise: If she promises to stay until spring, he'll pay her return fare if she decides to go back to her home country.

Inside Story
By Susan Page Davis

Claudia Gillette is a prize-winning journalist at a high-profile magazine.
She prides herself in her cool independence-setting schedules, traveling the
globe, beating the deadline. Landing the interview with Heidi Taber, the
only female in an elite U.S. Navy special operations unit, is yet another
rung on her ladder of career successes.

Lieutenant Bill White is not happy about the journalist standing in front of him in the midst of the Philippine jungle. He has no time for public relations campaigns-certainly not now that their training maneuver has changed to a covert mission to rescue a well-known aerophysicist from terrorists.

As shells explode and tracer fire streaks the air, Claudia finds herself caught up in a danger she never expected.or wanted. With lives at stake, Claudia fears her presence in the unit is their greatest detriment to survival. Will she find the strength to live through the nightmare.or has
her ambition cost her her life?

"Because he loves me," says the Lord, "I will rescue him; I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name." Psalm 91:14, NIV
