A Woman of Honour
by Marlow Kelly

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

BLURB:

Duncan Campbell wakes to discover he is imprisoned with a woman in his enemy's dungeon in the Highlands of Scotland. The disenchanted warrior hopes his last few moments on earth will be spent in the arms of the sweet-voiced Isabel. If only she will cooperate.

Isabel Douglas has no intention of obliging the crude captive. The penniless noblewoman considers herself too tall and thin to be desirable. She intends to become a nun. But first, disguised as a boy, she must deliver an important letter to Scotland's hero in hiding, King Robert the Bruce.

Together, the pair make a daring escape that plunges them into the bleak countryside in the middle of winter. In the struggle to survive, they learn the true strength of their feelings for each other. But when Duncan's animosity towards the king becomes evident, Isabel must decide between her heart and her country.

EXCERPT:

Duncan Campbell drifted into consciousness and opened his eyes to absolute blackness. He lay perfectly still on the cold, dirt floor listening. A small rustle of fabric echoed in the darkness. He cocked his head, getting a sense of the sound’s location, then rose to his feet.

“Tell me who you are before I tear you apart,” he roared, seizing his opponent. Whoever it was didn’t answer, just silence. A fist punched him on the nose. Pain ricocheted through him, and he grabbed his face. In the dark, he lost his balance and fell in the dirt, cradling his head in his hands.

“Oh my, are you all right?” asked a small voice.

“No, I’m not.”

“You threatened me, and I wanted to give you fair warning I will fight back if you touch me.”

The lyrical voice stunned him. A woman? She spoke Gaelic with a strong, lowland accent. He shook off the pain and asked, “Where am I?”

“Dunstaffnage Castle. Don’t you remember your capture? I’ve heard of people getting a bump on the head and not remembering their own name. Is that what happened to you? Did you bump your head?”

Lord, she was talkative.

“Is it?”

“I remember I was hit from behind scouting the bast….Are we in the dungeon?” He rose to his feet.

“Yes.”


He grunted. On the bright side he hadn’t gone blind. On the other hand they were in a dank, windowless cell with no hope of escape. There wasn’t even a sliver of light coming through the door.

Profile of Terror
by Alexa Grace

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

BLURB:

A missing coed named Abby Reece.

Two clever thrill killers are committing the most brutal, public, and horrifying abductions and murders in the county’s history.  The killers, known as the Gamers, have done this before, and are now upping their evil game to a new level.  The question is — can they be stopped before they kill again?

Things get complicated.

When an ex-girlfriend goes missing, Private Investigator Gabe Chase is obsessed with finding her.  But once her naked and posed body is discovered, the investigator becomes the investigated.  His passion for the victim’s beautiful sister is a complication he doesn't need, as he helps solve the county’s most baffling, terrifying murder cases ever.

Add a sociopathic serial killer who calls himself the Master.

A serial killer so deadly, the FBI’s behavioral analysts want to know when and why he began killing, as well as the identification and location of additional victims.  He will speak only to former federal agent, Carly Stone, a woman he blames for his capture.  When the profiler finds herself at the mercy of this ruthless killer, his becomes the most terrifying profile of all.

Profile of Terror

Three chilling villains, two passionate love stories, and pulse-racing suspense with startling plot twists keep readers on the edge of their seats from page one of this heart-pounding and unforgettable romantic suspense.

EXCERPT:

Sipping her coffee, Kaitlyn let her eyes move over him.  His jet-black hair curled over his ears and the collar of his white shirt.  Long and lean, with broad shoulders and a wide chest, he was handsome as the devil, with a few days growth on his sculpted jaw.  And why he seemed familiar to her was a mystery.

It was the muscles rippling under his white shirt that quickened her pulse as he leaned across the desk, dangerously close to her.  Kaitlyn decided Gabe Chase was too good-looking for his own good.  No, she corrected herself, he was drop-dead gorgeous.  That her sister dated him was no surprise.  To Abby, a man like Gabe would be another notch on her bedpost until she tired of him and threw him away like an old toy.

If that was what happened, she empathized with him.  She knew from personal experience that getting dumped was no picnic.

"I'm not surprised Abby didn't tell you she had a sister," Kaitlyn said softly.

"Why is that?"

"We aren't close by any stretch of the imagination.  Abby and I have polar-opposite personalities.  I'm the responsible, older daughter who has life goals, and Abby is the younger wild-child who's been giving my mother ulcers since she was fourteen-years-old.  If our father had stuck around, I'm sure she would have driven him to distraction, too."

"How did you find me, Kaitlyn?"  Gabe asked, with a long, searching look.

"After you left the apartment yesterday, I watched you talk with Abby's landlady. Once you left, I had a talk with Dr. Ramsey myself.  She told me who you were and gave me your business card.  Later in the evening, I parked outside your building.  I saw you pull up in your truck.  So I waited until you entered the building, opened your office blinds, and turned on the lights.  Then I slipped into the lobby to check the mailboxes — Gabriel Chase, Private Investigations, Suite 201."

"That doesn't explain how you got in my locked office."

Kaitlyn shot him a sly, secretive smile and said, "I have my ways."

"Besides accusing me of breaking and entering, why are you here?" he asked sarcastically, wanting to put all the pieces together.

"I want to hire you to find Abby."  Kaitlyn raised her eyes to his expectantly.
