Aliases, mistaken identities, and a tumultuous chase through the Scottish Highlands by two sympathetic and fun protagonists make the second installment of Ashe’s Devil’s Duke Regency series (after The Rogue) a rollicking page-turner. In addition to changing her name from Emily to Zenobia, the winning heroine has achieved fame and earned income as Lady Justice, author of provocative pamphlets championing the rights of women, laborers, and the poor. Unable to find her missing sister, she reluctantly appeals to her nemesis, Peregrine, a member of the Falcon Club, for help—and discovers that Peregrine is Colin Gray, the new Earl of Egremoor. She was betrothed to him at birth, once loved him, and now despises him. After they cross paths with a highway robber who’s been using Colin’s name, they’re forced to run for their lives. As painful memories of their childhood friendship bubble up, they come to see through each other’s facades and challenge each other to be their true selves. Eloquent descriptive passages bring the countryside to life, and sweet and eccentric supporting characters add zest to this entertaining and emotionally satisfying tale. Agent: Kim Whalen, Trident Media. (Oct.)

Romance: Rescuing the Heart

Reunited lovers find a chance to become a couple and to restore their faith in Wild Montana Skies by Susan May Warren. Army chopper pilot Kacey Fairing returns home to Montana after a devastating crash and joins the local search-and-rescue team. Unbeknownst to Kacey, her former love interest—and current country music star—Ben King is visiting home and volunteering with the team as well. When they’re thrown together for a rescue, Kacey and Ben must confront some of what broke them apart, and a secret comes to light. Both reeling from betrayals and years of misunderstandings, these good yet flawed people try to find their way to forgiveness and a loving future. Exciting rescues and an old mystery offer a thrilling, roller-coaster plotline and plenty of drama to keep the pages turning. This inspirational, kisses-only romance is the first in a series and introduces the reader to compelling secondary characters, hinting at their own happy endings on the horizon. 

SAFE IN HIS ARMS
Romantic suspense travels west in Wind River Wrangler by Lindsay Mc-Kenna, the first in her Wind River series. In order to escape an anonymous stalker, romance novelist Shiloh Gallagher leaves New York City for a family friend’s ranch in Wyoming. In the great outdoors she hopes to find peace and quiet to finish her next book, as well as some healing after years of grief. Once there, Shiloh also discovers a rugged, very appealing ex-military man—cowboy Roan Taggart. He promises to keep Shiloh safe from harm, though neither of them is safe from their blossoming love. However, childhood tragedy makes Shiloh wary of giving her heart away, and Roan isn’t sure the city girl will find all she needs in the wilds of Wyoming with him. When Shiloh’s stalker locates her, she doesn’t know if she should run once more, or take a chance and fight for her life—and a future with Roan. The beautiful, dramatic setting serves as a fitting backdrop to this pulse-pounding romance.
