enduring characters that readers

Family saga is still going strong!

Responsible for protecting her younger siblings from their abusive father, Bethoc Matheson
is in no position to rescue another soul in Scotland. Yet when she sees a bleeding man on the
verge of drowning, that’s exactly what she does, securing him safely in a cave where she can
return day after day to tend to his wounds.
Sir Callum MacMillan can scarcely believe such a slight lass as Bethoc could save him from
the grasp of death. But he knows the telltale marks of an angry fist on her skin, and he knows
she has the soul of a fighter within her feminine frame. Raised to be a protector of the weak
by his Murray clansman, Callum would prefer to be the one saving her—and save her, he
will. If he can first survive the treacherous attack that led him into her irresistible arms…

As the holidays approach, the air is filled with the festive sounds of bells chiming and carolers
singing. Maribeth Scott loves Christmas, but she’s pretty sure that after years of waiting,
Santa isn’t finally going to gift her with Mr. Right. In fact, the only thing she truly wants for
Christmas is a baby to love. At thirty-nine, she’s determined to become a mother and she
will make it happen, even if she has to do it on her own.
When Mo Kincaid returns to the rustic town after almost twenty years away, he’s seeking
redemption from his checkered past. The last thing on his mind is romance, and he’s certain
he doesn’t deserve it. But now there’s irresistible Maribeth, showing him the true spirit of
Christmas and winning his heart. For the first time in Mo’s life, the future looks bright. Only
one thing stands between them: Maribeth’s deep desire for a child and Mo’s conviction that
he’s too flawed to be a father. Is his world-weary heart ready to take the ultimate leap
of faith?

REBECCA’S BOUQUET
The Hope Chest of Dreams Series

Lisa Jones Baker

KEY SELLING POINTS

Debut author Lisa Jones Baker debuts on the Zebra list with her three-book
Hope Chest of Dreams series, perfect for fans of Jennifer Beckstrand and
Charlotte Hubbard. Rebecca’s Bouquet introduces readers to the first of
three young Amish women, gifted with hand-carved hope chests to hold
their treasures and their dreams for the future, find the inspiration they
need to help them reconcile love and faith in the most unexpected ways.

• Amish stories that explore the
tensions between the Amish and
English way of life as characters
grapple with secular temptation
and reconcile their core beliefs
through faith have never been
more popular. Lisa Jones Baker
is an exciting new voice tackling
this subject matter.

The last thing Rebecca Sommer dreamed her plan to wed would bring is a heart-wrenching
choice. She thought she and her betrothed, William, would spend the rest of their lives
in Illinois’ heartland, raising a family in their close-knit Amish hometown. But when he
must travel far out of state to save his ailing father’s business, Rebecca braves her relatives’
disapproval—and her own fears—to go work by his side. And though she finds herself
ever more in love with the dedicated, resourceful man he proves to be, William’s growing
interest in English ways may be the one challenge even her steadfast faith can’t meet…

• The books in the series will be
published every four months.
• Baker will also be featured in
The Amish Christmas Kitchen
(Kensington TP, 10/16) with
Jennifer Beckstrand and
Amy Lillard.

William knows he couldn’t ask for a more loyal wife-to-be. And the bravery that helps
Rebecca tackle every obstacle makes her even more admirable. He simply won’t ask her to
sacrifice her deepest beliefs, no matter how right they are for each other. But the patience
and care that crafted Rebecca’s hope chest is somehow showing them there’s more than one
way prayers can be answered—and hearts brought together forever…

Awkward, insecure Grace Jenkins has had little experience with men. But that hasn’t
stopped her from dreaming hard about Noah Harper. Gorgeous, strong and darkly
sexy,Noah has a rough edge beneath his polish that promises no mercy in the bedroom.
When Grace learns Noah’s engagement has ended in scandal, she shyly offers him her
support and her friendship. But Noah’s looking for something extra…
Noah wants Grace—badly. He wants to possess those curves that go on forever, to savor her
sweet innocence, to take her to the limits of white-hot desire…again and again. What he
doesn’t want is anything more complicated than that, and he knows Grace is a woman who
deserves better. Grace, however, knows exactly what she wants—the kind of ecstasy only
Noah can give her. Brazenly, she accepts, and Noah promises to make all her secret fantasies
come true…

SEMI-SWEET HEREAFTER
The Chocolate Whisperer Mystery Series

Colette London

Fans of JoAnna Carl, Joanne Fluke, Diane Mott Davidson, and Cleo
Coyle will love the new Chocolate Whisperer mystery which takes
chocolate consultant Hayden Mundy Moore to London, England!

KEY SELLING POINTS
• Cozy mystery readers love
food-based series, and what
food is more universally
savored than chocolate?!
• The Chocolate Whisperer Mystery
series enters a near empty
cozy mystery segment with only
JoAnna Carl’s Chocoholic
Mysteries series focused
specifically on chocolate.
• Criminal Confections is in its
second printing!

As an authority on all things chocolate, Hayden Mundy Moore is traveling across the pond
to lend her expertise to the owner of a posh London chocolaterie-pâtisserie. From coconut
truffles to chocolate flapjacks, Hayden’s mouthwatering creations quickly impress her client.
But her knowledge doesn’t end there. The detective constable is taken by surprise when
she identifies an exotic murder weapon: a stone metlapil, used to grind cacao beans—and
apparently to bludgeon someone to death—in Hayden’s own lodgings, no less…
The victim is a sexy celebrity chef who just happens to be the husband of Hayden’s client.
Now, amid the terraced town houses and local pubs, a killer is lurking—and the police have
an assortment of suspects: a culinary rival, an ambitious agent, a recently-sacked assistant,
and unfortunately, Hayden herself. The talented chocolate whisperer will have to find out
what sort of nutter clobbered the famous cook—or her career may come to a bitter end…

As if a run-in with an old flame and a failed marriage proposal weren’t enough to horrify
Krissy for one night, a woman is found strangled to death in a room filled with ominous
jack-o’-lanterns. All signs suggest a crime of passion—but when the hostess’s jewelry
disappears, malevolent intentions seem way more likely…
With the estate on lockdown and a killer roaming the halls, Krissy must help Officer Paul
Dalton investigate each nook, cranny, and guest for answers—while also confronting a few
demons of her own. Someone has lots of skeletons in the closet, and Krissy better tread
lightly to expose them…

Kirby—later Smoke—Jensen has just earned his first paying job as a deputy U.S. marshal
for the Colorado Territory and is sent to the lawless town of Las Animas. There, he finds a
sheriff too cowardly to face the outlaw leader Cole Dawson, whose six-gun has left a lot of
good men dead. Young Smoke feels no such fear. He takes Dawson down fast. Then the real
fight begins.
It turns out Dawson is only a cog in a crooked plot hatched by someone hiding behind
the law. For a young deputy marshal, going up against the powerful and corrupt is almost
certainly a fool’s mission, but doing nothing is not a choice. When Smoke strikes, he’s in
all the bloody way, and what follows will become the stuff of legend. Braving bullets, blood,
and treachery to face down the most dangerous outlaw in Colorado Territory, Smoke will
earn a reputation for justice and the rule of law in a wild, violent frontier.

THREE MEN DEAD. AND SIXKILLER MIGHT BE NEXT
The territorial governor has sent three lawmen to clean up the mess that is Chico, New
Mexico—and not one of those lawmen has made it out alive. A crooked sheriff has the
terrified denizens of Chico under his boot heel, so the governor turns to John Henry
Sixkiller, sending him undercover as a gunman for hire. So far, Sixkiller has bloodied his
opponents in every battle he’s fought in the Southwest. But this one could affect the entire
country: A group of merciless land pirates have been hiding behind Chico’s brutal sheriff.
Their goal: to take the entire territory hostage and sell it lock, stock and barrel to Mexico—
gleefully slaughtering anyone who gets in the way…

In this repackaged and updated edition of her 2011 true-crime classic,
New York Times bestselling author Caitlin Rother writes of the
high-profile murder of Tom and Jackie Hawks by a crew of criminals
led by Skylar and Jennifer Deleon. Skylar Deleon, a charming con who
later became a transgender female, tied the Hawks to the anchor of
their yacht and threw them overboard—alive—near Newport Beach,
California, to steal their boat and pillage their bank accounts.
Retirees Tom and Jackie Hawks were delighted when attractive, personable Skylar Deleon
and his pregnant wife, Jennifer, offered cash to purchase their yacht, the Well Deserved. But a
trial voyage turned into a nightmare. The Hawkses were never seen again, while the Deleons
claimed the older couple had signed over control of their assets to them.
The outrageous story became even more shocking when Skylar and Jennifer were tried for
murder. Now, in this updated edition of her true-crime classic, bestselling author and awardwinning journalist Caitlin Rother reveals eye-opening developments in the case, including
Skylar’s decision to transition to a transgender woman—despite living in a men’s prison. But
for the former child actor, the answer to “Where Are They Now?” is still Death Row.

vastly different world, with a painful past that still haunts her, Lisette is determined to resist
Charles’s advances. Because Lisette can accept nothing less than forever with Charles…and
forever might be too much to hope for with the reigning prince of the Harrison clan.

CHRISTMAS AT PROMISE LODGE
The Promise Lodge Series

Charlotte Hubbard

Rising star in the Amish romance community, Charlotte Hubbard
returns with her newest novel in the Promise Lodge series. As the year
draws to a close, the brand-new colony of Promise Lodge is thriving, a
welcoming community that offers three Amish sisters a fresh start.
And as Christmas approaches, gifts big and small are given with love…
KEY SELLING POINTS

themed Amish book.

As Promise Lodge’s first wedding arrives, the evidence of a community building a foundation
for the future is a cause for celebration. But the bishop’s narrow-minded wedding sermon
doesn’t sit well with the Bender sisters, the town’s courageous founders, especially widowed
Mattie Schwartz. She believes marriage and family aren’t the most important of God’s
gifts—even if she suspects her tender feelings for Preacher Amos Troyer run deeper than
simple friendship.
Amos hasn’t given up hope that stubborn, spirited Mattie will change her mind about taking
another husband, but when an accident threatens to change the course of his life forever,
he wonders if the Lord has sent him a message. He’ll need faith, hope, and charity to find the
right path—and a Christmas blessing to convince Mattie to walk it with him.

“Brimming with strong women, Hubbard’s latest novel addresses themes unusual to the
genre, namely domestic violence and female independence, with grace. At the same time,
readers are given plenty of opportunity to laugh at hilarious antics. The brave and endearing

With its festive Snowed Inn and year-round Christmas store, the pretty town of Tall Pine
knows how to do the holidays right. But this year, Liv Tomblyn’s homecoming trip may be
bittersweet. Liv’s grandmother died soon after Thanksgiving, leaving a lifetime of belongings
to sort through. Soon Liv is surrounded by memories, including a retro silver Christmas tree.
And there’s Liv’s old friend Scott Leroux—the one-time class clown who’s become the
town’s go-to handyman.
Scott enjoyed helping Liv’s Nammy with little fix-it jobs in recent years, but now he’s
wondering if the crafty grandma had a much larger project in mind. Everything—from
Nammy’s mysteriously malfunctioning heater to that silver tree—seems to be conspiring to
throw Liv and Scott together. Not that Scott objects. For though Liv insists she’ll leave
Tall Pine when the holidays are over, he’s hoping their holiday kisses might thaw her resolve
and make this Christmas truly unforgettable…

handsome widower can see her as anything but a scolding schoolteacher. He never guesses
how a magical Christmas Eve will open his eyes to love.

AN UNEXPECTED CHRISTMAS BLESSING by Molly Jebber
As much as Charity Lantz’s children need a father, the young widow isn’t sure her new
neighbor Luke Fisher can ever be the right choice. They’re having more disagreements than
snowflakes in December. Besides, he’s never given a sign he wants to be more than friends.
Can Gott show them a way past their misunderstandings to a forever love?

The Still Divas Series

of murder. Now available in mass market!

Out of all the divas at New Day Temple of Faith, Unique has to be the most colorful one—
she and her mother Lorain, that is. Never one to hold her tongue in the name of keepin’ it
real, it’s no surprise that Unique has not been saved all her life. It’s safe to say that Lorain
wasn’t born on the church pew either. Let the church folk tell it, the apple hasn’t fallen too
far from the tree when it comes to Unique.
Lorain—once known as the tight skirt, V-neck blouse, too much makeup–wearing leader
of the New Day Singles Ministry—claims she’s there to look out for her daughter and try to
keep her in check. But how in the world does Lorain think she can even begin to keep her
daughter on the straight and narrow with the crooked life of her own?
Some might say Lorain has failed miserably as a mother when Unique ends up in jail for
three counts of murder. One who would agree is the woman who raised Unique while
Lorain was out living her life freely. As an all-out war takes place between Unique’s birth
mother and the woman who raised her, will Unique have any support while she fights for
her life behind bars? Will all forsake her while they are too busy with their own agendas?
Only God holds the answer to this one.

the name JOY), a multi-genre writer who now focuses on Christian fiction, children’s stories,

the Drama Queen. She doesn’t go looking for drama, it just happens to find her. Take, for
instance, her love life. Kayla’s not satisfied with just one man. She has two—one she’s in
love with and another she’s pregnant by. It’s a ready-made formula for disaster, but will
Kayla see it before everything blows up in her face? Her track record says no, but her friends
and family can only hope.
Terrell Sims has just turned his life around, gotten a new job, and the girl of his dreams, but
when a problem he thought he had taken care of comes back to haunt him, he might just
lose everything he’s worked so hard to gain.
Terrell’s brother is a recently reformed player who has also met “the one,” but when he learns
that she has just as many conquests as he does, can he really trust her with his heart? More
importantly, can she trust him with hers?
