April R. Schreiber

A blind date introduces April to a man she nicknames Jimmer and her life is changed forever. He exposes her to the finer things in life, but more importantly, he teaches her what true love is. She finds herself telling him things she never told anyone before and cannot understand why he loves her when he could have someone not as damaged as she. She is an addict when they meet, had been raped, and had a childhood filled with severe physical and mental abuse. The more she tells him, the more deeply he falls in love with her. Coming from a small town where hunting and guns are common place, she thinks nothing of it when she learns he carries a .38 under his suit coat to work. After living on a rough part of a reservation where her sister handed her a rifle because she though someone was coming to steal their gas, she assumes his guns are to protect the large amounts of cash he has both in his car trunk and apartment. She is unfamiliar with city life and assumes this is normal. Because she trusts him so completely, she is not suspicious of his job when he takes spur of the moment out-of-state business trips that can last for an undetermined amount of time. When he tells her something 'fell off a truck' he laughs as she wonders why it didn't break. Wildflower is true the story of their time spent together, events that happened, and murder. It is a story every woman of every age can relate to. It is the author's hope that you enjoy this glimpse of the not-so-average life one woman was lucky enough to survive. May you be in heaven half an hour before the devil knows you're dead!

Mark Seal

With compassion and an unswerving regard for the truth, veteran journalist Mark Seal lays bare the deeply moving, inspirational story of Joan Root, a dedicated environmentalist and Oscar-nominated wildlife filmmaker. He covers her early days in Kenya as a shy young woman with an almost uncanny ability to connect to animals; her whirlwind courtship with the dashing Alan Root, their marriage, and the twenty years of nonstop adventure and passionate romance that followed, both in Africa and around the world; the shattering disintegration of the marriage and partnership; and Joan’s triumphant struggle to reinvent herself as the protector of her lakeshore community’s fragile ecosystem—a struggle that would lead to her tragic death in January 2006. Joan Root dreamed of a bright future for Kenya, a country blessed with unmatched beauty but scarred by decades of colonization and a culture of corruption. She spent her life fighting to make that dream a reality. Her life ended too soon, but “thanks to Seal’s meticulous re-creation, her extraordinary life lives on.” (People, four-star review)

He's a legendary gunslinger working for the powerful business baron she intends to bring down. When he takes her captive, desire makes a prisoner of them both. Leaning his hard body against hers to pin her to the rock again, Jake asked roughly, "You could try by remembering that it's against the law to rob trains." "You work for Durant--what do you care about the law?" "I might go easy on you if you'll talk. Where's the rest of your gang?" The mutinous stare she gave him was indicative of the answers he would receive, and Lassiter shrugged. "Fine. Stay quiet. I'm getting paid to stop 'Colorado Kate,' and I guess that's who I'm taking back with me." "You're taking me to Durant?" she asked softly. He nodded. So this was really the end. She had no illusions as to Durant's intentions. He'd kill her just as ruthlessly as he'd killed her parents. "Care to tell me where I can find the Lost Canyon Gang?" Jake asked When she refused to answer, he curled his fingers around her wrists and straightened, pulling her up with him. Caitlin stared at him warily, seeing in his dark, reflective gaze something she didn't recognize. The sun beat down in a blaze of heat; a hot, dry wind blew, lifting her hair to drift around her face, yet she felt a sudden shiver. To her sudden, intense surprise, Lassiter lowered his head and kissed her. Virginia Brown is the award-winning author of nearly fifty novels in historical romance, mystery and general fiction.
