Spurs and Lace
by Bonnie R Paulson
PRICE: FREE
Slate MacAllister, Montana rancher and veterinarian, will do anything to keep the land he loves from the man determined to wrest it from his control. But to protect the people he loves, he’ll risk his own life. When 3-year-old Mac becomes deathly ill in the middle of the worst blizzard in memory, Slate rides for the doctor—only to find a new doc, much too young and pretty to know anything about medicine.

Dr. Becky O’Donald made it through medical school despite the discouragement of her parents. Now the city girl is fighting her way out from under a mountain of student loan debt in a tiny Montana town, struggling to get used to more having horses and cows around than people. When she ends up cloistered in a sprawling ranch house with the handsome Slate, a sick little boy who looks just like him, and the boy’s lovely, fragile mother, Becky must deny her heart and focus on saving a life.

Slate is torn between worrying about his absent twin brother, what his enemy will try next, and his attraction to a woman who surely isn’t suited for life in rugged, rural Montana. But when he rides to her rescue, the two learn that together, they may just be stronger than the adversity they face.

When menacing hate mail arrives, Josh’s professional concern for Abby soon evolves into an intense attraction, and the feeling is mutual. But as Abby’s visions grow more graphic and gripping, so does her fear.
Somewhere in the shadows of Abby’s memory lies the key to a very present danger. But she’ll have to stay alive long enough to find it…

But by the time pastry chef Fernando Cruz arrives, several members of the original gang have already skedaddled…

Fernando’s hopes of starting a new life in Fat Chance are dashed when the town’s handful of ragtag residents—and a mysterious low-flying plane—show him just how weird the place actually is. His hopes of making over the town’s sole cafĂ© into a BBQ restaurant for nearby ranchers threaten to turn to dust as a string of bizarre secrets are revealed. But just when the pickins’ couldn’t get any slimmer, the citizens of Fat Chance realize they might be able to build exactly the kind of hometown they all need—but never knew they wanted…

Memphis Ribs

It’s up to homicide detective J.W. Ragsdale to solve these seemingly unconnected crimes without scaring away the tourists who are arriving in droves. That’s not going to be easy. Ragsdale’s investigation pits him against a crack-dealing gang in the midst of a bloody drug war, a Memphis BBQ king struggling to hold on to his crumbling empire, a shotgun-wielding assassin, an East Coast mobster with a taste for BBQ and the blues, and the newly crowned Maid of Cotton, who will do anything to keep her tiara.
